      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. so as i'm sure you all know, we have gotten (presumably) the final Community crunch before Aberration. and on this we see what appears to be a boss dossier. however, I belive that's it's actually something else entirely, let's have a look, shall we? for starters, while it clearly is the same device as the boss dossier, there are a few inconsistencies, for reference, let's grab the other dossiers as we can see, they all share a bit in common, they all show the boss's DNA sequence, the dragon, megapinthicus, and Manticore, all show a size comparison, and the island bosses all show some part of the boss's Biology, now let's look at the "dossier" just revealed as you can see, apart from the coloring, there is something MUCH different about this "dossier" for starters, the picture of the supposed boss isn't very detailed, where the boss dossiers are high-detailed photos of the bosses, this appears more of a picture drawn by someone, or something. secondly, as we can see, over half the "dossier" is covered in code, which has been translated to "I am not a god. I am more than that. Infinitely more. I am everything. This world, this ARK, it is my body. " "I can feel every bit of it, every footstep of man or beast that falls upon my skin, and every root that digs into my flesh. They are all mine. Everything in this world happens only by my will. " "The ones who put me here have long since fled, but though I hate them, I accept their escape. It is their reward, for they placed me upon this throne. " "Yet should anyone else challenge me, they shall receive no mercy. My wrath will be swift and terrible, and my enemies will know only pain. I am everything. " this should be the red herring right here, the only thing that this and the boss dossiers have in common is the device. so what do I think this is? I think it's one of Aberrations explorer notes, one written by this rouge... something. For convenience sake, let's call this thing John, John the Artificial bio-dome floating above a dead earth in space. Good to meet you John as for what these "explorer" notes written by John mean, there are a few possibilities. The most obvious is that these are to give us lore that the survivors, such as Helena or Rockwell likely wouldn't know about. Such as the Cataclysm that shattered Aberration, Homo Deus, the Apocalypse that destroyed earth, ect. This could also re-define the ARKs as we know it, are all of them sentient? Is this an overseer that got fused with the ARK after the cataclysm, is it a homo Deus, Just who, or what, is John? also, how could ANYTHING challenge a floating island? what are we going to do? shovel rocks and dirt into space? So yeah, just bringing it up

  3. so we all think that the arks are a experiment performed by aliens right? well were WRONG. because when you look at all the evidence it becomes clear who the culprit is and why. it was future humans and if you don't believe me this is why: first in the new ending we see three maps of earth. one is pangea, one is now and one is a water less future witch looks like thee large planet at the end cut scene. second the name of the game and stations are ARKS witch hold people and animals to survive when earth dried up. the explanation for the mythical creatures you ask? its future creatures some were fantasy brought to life and set loose on the world other are what life evolved into on earth and to explain dinosaurs i have one idea. the arks double as time capsules. we are being placed on ones that have dinosaurs some arks (under this theory) have only modern wildlife. third and final piece of evidence are the supply drops and obis. no creature on the ARK will use these. aside from humans they left help for us to thrive on these ARKS and gain the technology that the "old ones" had. that is my definitive ARK theory. respond to tell me your thoughts and theorys!
  4. First off, I have to say I bleeping loved reading the Explorer Notes. It was like reading an awesome novel that I could go and experience myself in the game. I loved it so much I even recorded the important information of everything that happened so I could possibly do some creative writing on the matter and turn it in to a short story. Secondly, the issue. I did find an error in the explorer notes. In Rockwell #5 he mentions settling a dispute between the Blackfoot tribe and the Painted Sharks. This comes after Rockwell #3 where he mentions the Blackthumb tribe having an issue with the Painted Sharks. Furthermore, in Nerva #5-8, he refers to said tribe as Blackthumb. I thus conclude that the tribe is actually named Blackthumb, and that Blackfoot was an unintentional error either through it being written by another person or being written at separate times. There are also minor issues with the loading screen text, but hat is just about spaces after comma stuff.
  5. Hey there guys so from playing other Role playing games I usually like to create a back story to my characters and this is reflective of my love for RPGs in general like Fallout, Elder Scrolls, etc. So for this I got the idea from such as FudgeMuppet on youtube to create a selection of Survivors that have in depth backstories and highlighting their stats boths strengths and weaknesses. These characters I am creating are just my own recommendations for these types of builds and you can choose to follow them or pick you own stats as this is just my own dealings. Ok let's get started, I will start off with one woman Survivor and one male Survivor to get started.... The Marine Explorer... (recommended for Single Player, and PvE) The Marine Explorer was born in the 1960s to a middle class family in Miami, FL. Her parents convenience store owners, who worked constantly to keep their business afloat and food on the tables. Because of this the Marine Explorer didn't get as much social interaction and instead relied on herself at an early age to become as self-sufficient as possible. She would regularly be on her own at home and she would make the most of it by making her own food and cleaning up the house. While at elementary school she went to the school library to do her home work assignment, there she found her first picture book on marine animals, and she was instantly drawn to the pages in the book. Around the same time her parents gave birth to another girl, however being that the Marine Explorer had become very good at managing herself on her own, her parents seemed to be giving her little sister more attention and even taking off work to be at her side. This caused much resentment between the two sisters growing up. The Marine Explorer was determined to out shine her younger sister. She enrolled in swimming classes and became very well versed in marine biology. At the age of 18 she had become a star swimmer at her high school and was granted a full scholarship to a college up north. Being at college the Marine Explorer finally felt free from having to out due her younger sister and loved her studies and swimming for the college. She studied Marine Biology and was even able to go out in the field and observed dolphins, sea turtles, and sharks. She became a natural scuba diver and loved every minute of her life, however a year before she was set to graduate she got a phone call that would change her life. Police had called her and informed her that her parents had been killed in a store robbery. Although she didn't get along with her parents she was still heartbroken and left college immediately to make funeral and other arrangements. However it became apparent to her that her younger sister still in middle school was left alone. The Marine Explorer had to make a choice officially become the guardian of her sister, or her sister would immediately become a ward of the state. She ended up filling the papers for guardianship of her sister, even though she truly didn't want to. At first life was bitter for her; her younger sister was rebelling every chance she got, her college had called her back and informed her that if she did not return for the next school semester her scholarship would be void, and to make matters worse, her parents owed lots of money to the loans they took out to keep the store open. Knowing that her dreams of becoming a marine biologist were at an end, the Marine Explorer choose to stay and rebuild the store and help her sister. Through the years her relationship with her sister grew and she finally found out what it felt like to have a family that her parents did not give her. Once her sister was ready for college the Marine Explorer was ready to go back to school and finish what she started. After seeing her younger sister go off to college, the Marine Explorer begin filling out her own applications to enroll at college. Luckily a college in San Diego was willing to except her and transfer her already completed credits. She packed up and headed west for San Diego, stopping at a small hotel to rest. However, she would wake up to the sun in her eyes and the sound of the ocean near by, groggy the Marine Explorer noticed some sort of metal implanted into her wrist and then the next she knew, a large lumbering four legged creature stomped by her. A creature long since dead on Earth....The Marine Explorer was in The ARK! The Marine Explorer character stats will mostly focus on speed, oxygen, and stamina rather than health, melee, and resistance. The Marine Explorer will put equal points into speed, oxygen, and stamina. She will have an above average crafting speed, and be decent in food and fortitude. Water won't be too much of an issue as the Marine Explorer will stay close to the shore. Engram paths should focus on heavy armor, ranged weapons, and of course scuba gear. Your tames should be focused on the water, however recommended land tames should be Baryonyx, Spinos, Sarcos, and Kapros because of their semi aquatic nature, and Raptors, Iguanadons, and Equus because of their speed rather than their attack power. Being a good fast diver, this character will work great on her own, and also work great in a tribe filling the role of gathering oil, and silica pearls for the rest of the tribe. I hope you like this first background/build character, more to come soon feel free to comment, make suggestions, and add your own characters.
  6. Sneak peek Read the rest -> link;https://arkdownunder.com/lore The Formers Not much is known about The Formers and their actual identities. It is believed that even the very name is made up by a previous inhabitant of this mysterious land. Based on our limited understanding, it appears that the Formers have control over the entire existence of this place. It is widely believed that by The Former’s will, these Obelisks influence everything from the growth of dinosaurs to the types of creatures that dwell here. The first person to expand our understanding of the Obelisks was a renowned biologist simply known as Helena. She hailed from a place known as ‘the land down under’ a region she describes much differently than these lands. After years of research, Helena realized she needed a different perspective to understand what she had uncovered. To do this, she traveled to the farthest parts of the north region where she discovered crucial information. A larger number of predators lived in this frozen tundra where conditions generally would not allow them to survive. In comparison, the population of natural prey that also lived in this frozen wasteland would not be able to support this unlikely ecosystem. Natural food chains did not appear as they should have. To be blunt, there were far more apex predators than prey. Due to her extensive knowledge of various ecosystems, she concluded that this ecosystem should not exist without the intervention of some supernatural force. Possibly, an outside power. But Helena’s research didn’t stop there. She uncovered what appeared to be a mysterious connection between the Obelisks and the implants embedded into the wrist of every survivor. It is unclear, but this is believed to be how The Formers monitor us all and seemingly assist in our resurrection from horrible deaths we must endure. But to what end? What does this accomplish? Do they only test our will to live and fight? Read the rest -> link;https://arkdownunder.com/lore
