  1. Ragnarok map

    I only get my map from lat 0-30 and long 0-90 and any more explored map just resets when ever i leave rag. Server and single player same character as well. any fixs that does not require me to delete all my data again because am tired of re getting my achivment items
  2. Ragnarok Map with Aberration

    hello everyone, Now this is a suggestion for you. What about adding a huge Aberration underground to the Ragnarok map? Is that a great idea or what? :-) You know the last missing 1% could be a big beautiful 1% we are already surrounded by water, big water, ocean water :-P /Shepard
  3. Ps4 Rag update today?

    Has anybody heard any updates since the other day as to if/when the Ragnarok update is coming today for PS4?
  4. Ark Suggestion: Flooded Earth

    General Map Idea Ever since I played Scorched Earth I've considered the opposite of it. Flooded Earth. A map covered with water. Not an island like the Centern, Ragnarok (or theisland) but rather a series of islands, like Hawaii. Rather than having a deep chasm around every island, it would feature lots of different watery environment. Reefs, shallows sea and deep sea. Each island would have it's own ecosystem and resources. There could be one for metal and obsidian (volcano perhaps), one for redwood and one island that's not getting far up out of the ocean so all that's left is a watery swamp. Who knows there could be an island to the north that is just a single frozen is-berg. Special Features Now I mostly play on TheIsland and I had a longer visist at Scorched Earth, and to be fair the latter map is more creative than the first, but it lacks what Ragnarok seems to have plenty of; Quality areas to build bases on. Flat areas and caves. Big caves and small caves to build bases in, and long caves, that go underground from island to island, not every island of course, but the biggest islands would have these caves that lead to the next, making transporting land dinos easier. As well as big underwater caves with air-pockets under the shallow sea-floor for making bases in. I've also been considering the idea for submarine, so maybe some sort of building that if placed on a platform saddle, witj a special engine will make you alse to have an underwater base on the back of a Mosasaurus or Plesiosaur. Something similar to Vacuum Compartment, except not tech tier and cheaper to make. If it'd be something that cover the whole platform, or something you build bit by bit. Unique Animals Now I imagine that the Spino takes the role of the t-rex on the Scorched Earth map, and the Baryonyx taking the place of the carno. I've also got suggestion for new dinos: A medium sized shark; A shark that's not quite the size of the megalodon, but still fierce in combat. A jack of all traits swimmer, simply enough, slower than the Ichthy but a better fighter. Or maybe not even a shark, something that's lacking in Arks waters is Seals. So maybe a huge rideable seal, fast in water but slow on land. A giant sea-scorpion; bigger than the Eurypterid and tamable, it's a carnivore that swims the shoreline, it's quite slow, but a good fighter. Plus it'd be armored as well. Might be a brontoscorpion as well, the water equvilant of Pulmonoscorpius, but it can't swim, only walking on the sea-bed(Much similar to the Karkinos). Perhaps a cross between the two. A big sea scorpion that swims through the water and can "land" on the sea floor to gain manoeuvrability. A wyvern of the sea; Something that would be a good fighter and useful to gather resources. Maybe a cross between a Spino and a Dunkleosteus, a Quadrupedal reptile that is an excellent swimmer, with heavy armor and jaws that can gather rock and oil. Unlike the Dunk however it can walk on land. And has a weight reduction for building materials, such as Metal, Iron Ingots and Wood, making them useful for transportaton. Like Wyverns the only way to get one is to steal an egg. In an underwater cave with an air-pocket, the eggs can be collected, if you can get past the parents. Once hatched however, they will not need milk, but different sorts of prime meat, Prime Fish meat, jerky or Mutton. If it should be given it's own breath atttack, I'm not certain. Thinking about maybe something like Gamera, from those old japanese films. A giant Aligator turtle, maybe it could have a platform saddle, with one platform on each shoulder, big enough to support one ballista or catapult. That's the gist of it anyway. Thanks for listening me rant, if you have your own suggestion, feel free to share!
  5. well coming back from rock egg gathering i stopped at a plant to heal where i was shoved under the map, my tribe and i tried for 45 min to get it unstuck with no luck. When i jumped off the drake i was also under the map on a second layer where i could look up and see everyone but they could not see me, as of right now the rock drake is still stuck. This needs to get fixed ASAP
  6. Going under the map constantly

    Hello, Muggleborn server here!! The 2nd and the 3rd Jan we have had constant issues, with drakes going under the map.. Before the update it was fine, never happened to us.. Now its happening and it also happens on other maps too.. It was the Radio-active zone where it keeps happening....!! Will this be fixed in the next update? I don't know if it was happening before the update but for us it started after the update.. And we have been in and out of that area for a while.. We really want you to look into this because people are losing their hard work under the map.. And not able to get it back.. I understand this is just a "game" but.. You don't expect it to constantly keep happening for two days on the trot.. ?!? That's just to much in my opinion! I really love the game, but really hope these get fixed... Also there is issues with the water supply and we had to put the S+ in to work around it... By using the input pipe and tap so they didn't have to pipe all the way down to the ground floor for water.. We are a vanilla map and didn't want to put mods in full stop, so kind of annoying when you have water areas but can't use them then put in mods to help to situation.. I really would of thought the water would of been a main issue to be sorted first with the game been so intense on the characters food and water supply... These are the only two BIG issues we have on our server, other than this the map is amazing.. I just wish these issues wasn't there.. ♥ Hope for better updates!!
  7. Today i was exploring when I came around this hole in the Blue Biome, You can literally travel the whole of the blue zone up here with no consequences... Giant pvp game changer right there. You could zip line ravagers up there and hide them ! I'm pretty sure this isn't intentional - here's the coords & area : 40-59 https://imgur.com/a/OilDO
  8. Bad Terrain

    I do not know if its intended or the map is not completed that there are so many locations that dinos can get stuck and float in the creek, never able to do anything to get out. To name a few where I lose my tame: On surface, green obs (or purple visually) on northeast surface, when you facing the obs from the south, there are some big rock on the left that has a giant hole, if you got luck like me, dive right in and enjoy floods of reaper and nameless. In blue biome, when you go down from river valley, stay to the left, again, big creek in mountain that traps crabs etc Oh, if roll rat get stuck, its gonna be there forever:) Also, if you have anky/doed on kakinos, its likely that anky/doed will get pushed into mountain/ground if not careful, and it'll disappear.
  9. What's your favourite map?

    What is your favourite map in ARK? Why do you think like this? My favourite map is The Center.
  10. Map keeps getting reset

    Yesterday me and my brother explored (using a raft) all the way to the frozen area but when we logged back on the next time both our maps and their markers were all gone! Please fix this it’s super annoying and this isn’t the first time it’s happened.
  11. Karkinos pushing tame under the map

    Yesterday, I was fighting a alpha crab on aberration with my crab. During the fight, the alpha pushed mine under it, much like a tuso used to do on the island: my mount was a full crabs height below the map at this point but could fight back. I eventually popped back up and out of it. I am not sure if this was only visual seeing as a) the mount didnt die, b) I got out and c) i wasnt in a falling animation, but needless to say im not touching these things unless im sure i wont get in a situation like that again.
  12. Revealed Map Areas not saving

    After exploring the map the revealed area resets when I load it back up. Tried multiple profiles, but it does it on all of them. Super annoying. Single player, Xbox

  14. Everytime I log in my earned skins, dossiers, warmap and worst of all my map is reset! Fog of war is back all over the map and boss skins are gone. This has been going on since shortley after the flier nerf. Its really ruining the game for me. This happens on all servers. official, dedicated and SP
  15. This has been talked about by other people for months now since like July I don’t see how there isn’t a fix yet, so on PS4 I get abberation kill the boss for the skins only for every single other previous skin to disappear 😐 this is super stupid and means I have to restart collecting all those skins all over again I would do it but in the past forums on the same issue since JULY!! They just reset AGAIN this is super dumb for a “FINISHED” game!!! I really like ark and it’s a lot of fun but don’t say the game is FINISHED when it’s not FINISHED when bugs like this are still happening🤦🏽‍♂️!
  16. It's a pain to use the map to navigate towards coordinates. Running for 30 seconds in one direction just to tell which way you're going is just dumb. Please for the love of god make the pin on the map into an arrow that changes direction depending on which direction you're looking.
  17. Location: 44.0, 26.5 The tree edge does not sink into the ground. Images here: https://imgur.com/a/cgJoC
  18. A couple of months ago I got a errorcode popping up constantly on the old official server. Googled the problem and read that i had to delete local saved game data to get rid of it, so i did. Ever since that nerdy glasses, torch sparkler and parasaur saddle skins spawned like crazy in my inventory, but even more annoying, my map, earned skins and dossiers keeps resetting. This has been reportet before, i know, but still isn't fixed so i thought i'd try again.
  19. I have played ARK for over 3,000 hours,i've seen ups and downs. Here whe're we now,before official release of Aberration DLC,i need to ask: Will be there any big map focused only on prehistoric animals? or maybe just animals? There's still so much undone..
  20. 4 Man group, official server, ragnarok map, killed the ice worm queen, got 1 artifact and thats it, it didnt respawn afterwards even though i've been waiting for more than 30 minutes in the cave, however. It is spawning, as we got 3 artifacts, 1 was already there, the second one took around 5 minutes, the third took 25, and it seems to be scaling or capping at 3 artifacts per run. If you guys could make it respawn instantly or with a solid respawn time like 2 minutes, that would be great and save a lot of time.
  21. DLC & Updates Ideas

    Hi! I know it's ambitious but I'm trying to make a "compilation" of ideas for the base game and potential DLCs. I will update this thread and my posts with more ideas and more descriptions. You could also give your opinion on the ideas (if you like or dislike ideas, both are good to know) and ask me (on the thread or by private message) to add or modify ideas to the "compilation" posts on the top of the first page. I'll add your name in the credit of this compilation The firsts posts of this thread will be UPDATED and EDITED instead of adding more posts. So, check it every time you look again at this forum! I hope you'll enjoyed this thread, don't be afraid to share ideas, they are all welcomed! ___________________________________________________________________________________________ CREDITS: Thanks to all people that help to make this compilation of ideas bigger: RowletAlex / and all others that shared ideas on various threads!! ___________________________________________________________________________________________ SUMMARY: 1) New Attributes, Skills and Character’s Customization 2) New Gameplay Dynamics 3) New Maps and Locations 4) New Creatures, Updates and Variants 5) New Structures, Items and Resources 6) New Modes ___________________________________________________________________________________________ 1-New Attributes, Skills and Character’s Customization New Skills Tree: Health: Stamina: Oxygen: Food: Water: Weight: Melee damage: Movement Speed: Crafting Skill: Fortitude: Torpidity: Learning Skill: How fast you get XP ___________________________________________________________________________________________ 2-New Gameplay Dynamics New Gameplay Dynamics: Sleeping Time: Creatures sleep. Some are active the day, others at night... Some species are also taking short naps. Every Creatures as a sleeping animation like the Megalosaurus. There is a sleep stat. It goes down with time, like hunger. The more stamina you use, the more the sleep stat decrease. Eating and Drinking New Dynamic: Herbivorous are eating bushes, leaves or the ground flora (destroying bushes, trees and grass). Carnivorous are eating corpses (after killing the prey). Both are drinking water. Eating and Drinking animations are used on resources/corpses. It doesn't deal damage around but satisfy thrust and hunger while reducing the durability of the targeted resources. It happens when using the attack command on resources. Thirst and Hunger: The behavior of wild creatures depends of their thirst and hunger. Thirst has an influence on stamina. Hunger has an influence on behavior (passive, aggressive, neutral). Carnivorous are more aggressive when hungry, they have the Starving Status Effect and they have a bigger aggro radius, being aggressive to every potential kind of preys. Weather, Time and Biomes Boosts: Creatures have a bonus/malus depending of the biome, the weather and the time of the day (night/day). Some are adapted to many kinds of biomes, weathers and times and have smaller bonus, others have more specifics conditions but bigger bonuses. For example: Mammoth would have a health bonus in the snow biome. Achatina would have a speed bonus when the weather is rainy. Direwolf would have an attack bonus at night. Stealth Move Set: This move set is used to hunt or hide. It works like the "run" move set, changing moving animations and speed. Humans and creatures can use it. They move closer to the ground, slower, near silent... When a creature uses the stealth move set, they can go 2x closer to other creatures before turning them into "attack or flee" behavior. Creatures are less 2x less detectable by the Detection ability when moving stealthy. Defensive Move Set: Some creatures /ankylo, doedicurus, carbonemys…) will take a defensive position (in their shell or ready to fight...) when a predator is too closed to them. Some predators won't attack creatures that are in defensive position (too difficult to kill, too many risks of damages...). This move set is a substitute to the stealth move set. Food Chain and Hunting/Fleeing Behaviors: Every predator looked for some (3-5) specific prey-species: Their Natural Preys. They attack “unnatural” preys only if the predator is too hungry. Some preys attract specific predators: Their Natural Predators. You can use those preys as Bait to attract specific predators. Preys also flee at the sight of their natural predators (or another potential predator), or when hearing his roar. Predators will only focus on their natural preys when they are in the area. If there is none of their natural preys, they will look after other potential, but unnatural, preys. A rex will hunt trikes, paras and iguanodon, ignoring other creatures like dodo, raptor and bronto that aren’t one of his natural preys. Paras will flee when they see raptors or rex, without waiting for the attack. Predators Respect: Predators won’t attack each other’s, except if hungry. If a big predator attacks a prey, smaller predators will flee from the fight. Raptors will go away of their para-prey if a rex start attacking this para. Detection Ability: Most of the creatures have a detection ability. They have the same detection ability as the tek helmet but doesn’t detect everything. Predators can detect their natural preys in a big radius. Herbivorous can detect the resources they need (fruits, trees, bushes…). As the tek helmet, you can disable this view. It changes the way to hunt and collect resources. Some creatures can detect preys exactly like the tek helmet, some only detect the Smell Track of creatures (you can hide your smell with water, poop…), some only detect Moving Creatures (by sound, you need to stop moving or use the stealth move set), some only detect the Heat of Creatures (you can hide it with clothes…) and finally some only detects Bleeding Creatures (you can hide by healing your wound). It changes the way predators are hunting and how to escape/hide from them. Footprints and Blood Tracks: Footprints stays for a few minutes, spawning when creatures/players are walking. It allows you to follow your prey track or identify creatures wandering around. Blood Tracks works the same way, when a creature starts bleeding it lets a blood track on the ground. Useful to follow a bleeding prey. A creature stop bleeding when her health is back to the max. Creature’s Nests: Creatures are building nests where they store food, let their eggs and sleep. Nests are, like beaver dam, structures spawned by dinos. Every dino can build 1 nest. If it builds a new one, the old one will be considered as “abandoned” and have a spoiling timer. You can ask tames to build a nest if they have enough resources. They will build it exactly where they stand at the time of the building order. New Creatures Carrying Dynamic: Creatures, without saddles, can only carry some specific resources and cannot carry structures and items. For example, an herbivorous can carry wood, berries but not meat. A predator can carry meat and skins but not structures or weapons. If you put a saddle on a creature, you can then put every kind of resources and items in the inventory. Waiting, Cleaning, Scratching and Playing Animations: Some animations that will help creatures to look more naturals, not just standing without doing anything else. It happens when they don’t move. Animations When Taking Damages: There is a Damage Taking Animation for every creature when they get a medium amount of damages. There is a Falling Animation for every creature when they get a large amount of damages, or when they are projected by a charged attack or when they fall from a cliff. They fall on a side or on their back and lay down on the ground until they try to move. Creatures are taking more damage when they lay down on the ground. When they try to move there is a Get Up Animation. You take 2 times less damages during the animations. Herd and Migration Dynamic: A lot of herbivorous have a pack behavior. They stay relatively close to each other, move from one place to another in groups. If one is attacked they all flee or attack. They flee in the same directions. They are all looking for food and water at the same time, do their nests in the same places. They are sometimes multi-species pack (stego and kentro for example). Size Variations: Some variations in size (small, medium, big models) for creatures. Some dinos of a same specie would be a bit smaller or a bit bigger than the original model. Bigger means more powerful, smaller means faster. Male Rivalry: Males of some species (wooly rhinos, carnos, mammoth…) will fight each other until one is killed/flees. The winner has a mating boost. Watch Mode: You can use every kind of creature as a “Watch dog”. You can set the attack radius and the creature will fight everything coming in this radius, but it will never go out of this radius. At the end of the fight the creature come back to his original standing point. Tree Plantations: You can grow (small and harvestable) trees in the ground or in crop plant. Handcuffs Connections: Connected to other prisoners and creatures Fur Protection: All creatures with fur/fat give an Insulation effect depending on their fur and size. Fire Attracting/Repulsive Effect: Fire attracts some creatures in need of warm or curious but also make others flee. The bigger the fire, the bigger the radius effect. Wind Effects: The windy weather makes the weather colder and all living forms thirst come faster. Depending on his direction it can make the detection ability better or useless. The direction also provides a speed bonus/malus for all walking/running/flying creatures. It also put off unprotected (not in house or cave) fire. Cold Water Effects: You swim slower than in normal water. High hypothermia risk. Players and creatures slowly take damage when in cold water. Dead Corpse Temperature Effect: You remember how Han saved Luke by putting him in a dead body to protect him from cold? Here is the same. When you kill a creature, during the decompositions time, the corpse warm protect from the cold all player and creatures in a set radius. One reason to stay close to dead corpse. Just be careful of potential predators that would be attracted... ___________________________________________________________________________________________ 3-New Maps Map- The Lost Valley: A lost valley with massive snowy mountains all around the valley. It’s made of 4 parts (The Tropical Jungle, The Great Plains, The Green Swamp and The Arid Steppes) Each one is in one corner of the map. In the middle of the Valley, where all other parts should be connected, there is the Warrior’s Tomb, the 5th part. Many dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures live in the Lost Valley. Locations: The Great Plains (North Part): Some big plains with highlands parts, small forests and areas full of big rocks. There is a huge red rock in the middle of this area. Lot of hills. A temperate weather, sunny, rainy. Inspired by the Great Plains in North America. There are many Natives Camps in the plain. The Natives in the camp will attack every unmounted creature (wild or tamed). There are some Abandoned Farms, some small houses with vegetables field around. The Gold Mine: A cave with many forgotten objects of an old mine, with unusable wagons and tracks. In the deepest part of the cave they are some walls with gold. The Rocky Maze: Many scars in the rocky ground have made a big rocky maze. Many dangerous flyers are wandering above the maze. There is an unfinished train bridge. In the middle of the maze you can enter the Rocky Maze Cave. The Western Town Ruin: A western-like town, partially destroyed. There is an abandoned jail. One of the cell has a broken wall and a big hole in the ground that lead to the Escape Tunnel Cave. The Abandoned Train Station: There are some tracks around and a broken steam engine with wagons. The Cursed Totem: A huge broken Totem with many predators around… The Red Rock: In the middle of the Plain, you'll find the huge Red Rock. It's a mountain-sized rock. There are some big walking ways to go on the top of it by feet. There are some caves in it too. The Red Rock is "U"-shaped. The Native Tribe live mainly on the top of the Red Rock. You'll find the obelisk to go to the Plain Boss Arena right in the middle of the "U" shape of the Rock. The Plain Boss Arena: You'll find the Plain Boss there. It's a big plain with some big rocks and bushes. There are many big skeletons (bronto, diplo and a titanos skeleton). The Tropical Jungle (West Part): A tropical forest with an Aztec-like temple in the center. There are many rivers. A tropical weather, mainly rainy or sunny. Lot of trees. Inspired by the Amazon Rainforest. There are 3 kinds of trees in the Jungle: Large Jungle Trees (same size as Redwood trees; can be equipped with tree-platforms; it has huge branches, big enough for medium-sized creatures to walk on; the top leaves of the trees are strong enough for small creatures to walk on without falling through), Medium Jungle Trees (half the size of Redwood trees; can be equipped with tree-platforms; it has big branches, big enough for small creatures to walk on) and Small Jungle Trees (The Island's jungle trees). The Acid Rain happens sometimes in the Jungle Part. It deals damages to creatures, players and structures. The tall trees are a good protection to it. Don’t build on the top of them or in area not covered by their leaves. There are Lianas falling from Medium and Large Jungle Trees. You can use Lianas like ladders. There are some lianas above quicksands sometimes, it’s a good way to escape. There are some Quicksands. Quicksands are very dangerous natural traps. If you fall in, you can only move very slowly. If you try to run, it doesn’t work, and you don’t move. Small Quicksands affect every small creature and it slows medium creatures. Big creatures aren’t affected. The depth is approximately half the size of a player. Medium Quicksand affect every small to medium creatures and it slows big creatures. The depth is approximately the size of a player. The Big Quicksand: There is one big quicksand in the Jungle. If you fall in this one, you're not trapped, but you go through it, falling in a cave: The Big Quicksand Cave. There is an exit to escape this cave but some creatures on the way... The Death Temple: A lost and dark temple partially made into a mountain. It works as a cave, full of predators... The Golden City: It's a cave. The entrance is close to mountains, in the Jungle border. In the deepest part you'll find an ancient city made of (uncollectable) gold. The Explorer’s Tree House: A big abandoned wood house, built on a tree. An explorer used to live there. There is a strange board game on the floor. (Jumanji easter egg) The Apes Nest: A big tree with many ape’s nests built on. There are sometimes survivors (wild human NPC) living there, in harmony with the apes. (Tarzan easter egg) The Jungle Temple: It stands in the middle of the Jungle part. A huge temple. The Aztec Tribe has built it and they live around this temple. It looks like a normal Aztec temple but has a small "arena" in it, where you'll find an obelisk that send you to the Jungle Boss Arena. The Jungle Boss Arena: After being teleported by the Jungle Temple obelisk, you'll spawn there. The Arena is a big destroyed Aztec City. You’ll find the Jungle Boss there.

You need enough underground space and the underground structure must be always connected to the floor with, at least, one underground entrance. It also need enough carrier wall/pillars. Underground entrances are unbreakable, but their door, trapdoor or gate can be destroyed to enter the underground base where you can destroy all carrier walls and pillars, destroying the base. You need to connect the bunker floor and ceiling with an underground carrier pillar or wall to get a 10x10 buildable space around it, they work like pillars and ceiling. Ice structures: It works like the other structures but take damage when the weather is too hot. It's auto-healing by rainy or cold weather. Extremely vulnerable to fire.

Creatures Restrictive Saddles/Muzzles: You can put it on creatures to block them from attacking and roaring. Canoes: A small boat. Easy to craft, small enough to go on small rivers, carriable again. When a medium-big creature hit it, you fall from it in the water. You can store things on it. Perfect to move in the swamp and escaping to leash and fishes.

Water, rain, soap and time will take the mud away. Ice: You can collect it by breaking part of the floe and other ice structures. The water of your inventory will turn into ice once you're in hypothermia. It’s heavier than water. Lichen: A harvestable vegetal that could be eaten by herbivorous creatures.

  22. Hey so like the title says im having issues switching my renterd server map. Im using the server company nitrado and i cant seem to get my map to switch from the island to Ragnorok. Ive gone into settings already and changed them and nothing seems to work. Anyone have any ideas?
  23. So starting yesterday I've started creating a floating islands type map called Avalon. This will be my first ark mod but I do have some unreal 4 and 3d modeling experience. Some topics that I'm interested in seeing discussion over are. -What should be under the floating islands? Lava, Water, A kill zone where you die if you fall, islands in the water? - How should flyers be balanced on a map that basically requires flyers to function? - What types of biomes should be included? - Should I make the biomes inherently separate like on the center or should I have realistic blended biomes like on ragnarok. - What type of content are you most interested in seeing? - What type of suggestions do you have for content on my map? - Do any other map makers have any advice for someone making an ark mod for the first time? I plan on releasing a sort of a test version some time in January that will be public to everyone and will most likely just include a few simple islands to work the kinks out of my production pipeline. A quick concept image I've made today https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/213542736849141760/371381727299502080/Untitled.png
  24. Map keeps resetting

    My explore map resets every time I log back on into single player. I play on Xbox, and while this bug isn't game breaking, is extremely annoying to have to re-discover the map and re-add all of my markers. I have several bases around the map for various uses, and to have to go through and find them again is tedious, to say the least. I noticed this bug after updating to v762. I did a bit of googling and found I wasn't the only one with this issue, and someone said that unchecking and re-checking (or checking and unchecking) the option to show the player's location would fix it. I've tried this, and it has not helped, at all. I've tried logging off and logging back in, and I've tried quitting the game all together. Nothing has worked. Like I said, it's not making the game unplayable, but having to fly around the map to find my bases again every time I play isn't fun. I don't know what else to try.
