      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. Otter glitched/lost in world

    Hi, I recently just soloed the lava cave and was on my way back to the base with my friends direwolf and otter and mine. My otter was on my neck and the direwolf was following and so was his otter. I think the otter was on neutral or passive but on the way back it disappeared. Is there a way to find the otter? Thanks for any help in advance.
  2. Otters aren't breeding, how can I fix this?????

    Hi, I'm playing the abberation update on Xbox One and for the past 20 mins I have been trying to breed two Otters. I have them in a 1x1 thatch house and both on wander. But they keep on walking away and stop mating and then have to restart. I have gotten them up to 97 percent but never had babys. Is there a way I can get them to breed as they currenttly aren't? Thank's for any help in advance.
  3. Otters starving

    Am i the only person who thinks otters starve unreasonably quickly compared to literally every other animal in game? If your not on at least every 3 days its going to die of starvation I've lost 3 this way now and i only use the little guy for insulation so i don't want to be wasting points on food. Cant be because of their size because i have plenty of small animals that i feed maybe every week and a half to two weeks
  4. Otterly difficult breeding

    Hello, Heartbreaking when a Otter baby starves. I have really tried but breeding Otters below level 100 is not possible. The behavior of eating habits we observed with Ovis breeding. They have a Health bar that rise and rise until it drops suddenly and during this Health bar behavior the baby do not eat, so the remedy is to force feed. However with the Otter the feeding stops and the above behavior can be observed, then when they do eat they eat one fish i.e. only one food. So a accumulation effect can now be observed with a drop say 70 food they eat one and another 70ish drop over time that is much with the result that they starve to death even at 15% development. I tried to have food in both trough and inventory to see if that helped the situation but no. I guess do not breed a low level one. Below one hundred, regardless how nice they look. If anyone know a trick to avoid this I love to find out. trivia: we had a fantastic weekend our base was not surrounded by titans (last weekend five in render distance). Rexes popped out and when I was tired we found a white Yutyrannus and we finished with taming that one. Had one Mammoth give the staggering meat count of zero meat my Rex said "what?" Regards, Ariana
  5. On the server listed above ice wyverns and otters aren't spawning. Otters have never spawned (despite killing all the fish in their spawn points a million times over). Ice wyverns haven't spawned since the invisible fix. This seems to be a problem specific to this server and platform and game type. No one seems to respond on twitter and I can't get a hold of any of the devs....
  6. Otter Spawns

    I created this topic to help some players find an otter, since they are very small and the spawns not that well known yet (not like beavers who are known to nearly everyone). So please, if you have found a rather promising spawn post the rough coordinates here.
  7. Otters not taming properly

    We are finding otters that will not accept the fish or will not show the "feed" button. Thought it may be a "one off" glitch but after having other friends/tribes on the server try as well, they encountered the same issue. Seems to be 1 out of 5 otters with this issue.
  8. Otters Not On Prim Plus?

    So, since the otter has been released for xbox one I've been searching non stop for one and just can NOT find them... I play on Primitive Plus and can find them on single player on The Island, The Center, and Ragnarok, but I can't find them anywhere on the official servers. Now, someone had recently told me that Primitive Plus for xbox one is behind an update, and that we wouldn't be getting the otter until the next update comes out, but then why can I find them on single player, which is also prim plus? I check the spawn locations, I clear them using our spino and then leave the rendering area and come to find that no otters have spawned, but the hesperornis does... like 4 of them... so I keep killing all of the fish and hesperornis that spawn, but still nothing shows up... I'm honestly convinced they just don't exist for Prim Plus yet...
  9. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Otter The Otter is a very small mammal with an appearance that shows great resemblance to the modern day Otter. It has a narrow stretched body and a long tail that is covered in a thin but insulating layer of fur. Otters are mostly aquatic animals, they have short limbs that are equipped with powerful webbed feet to propel them trough the water. The Otter is a friendly creature that poses no threat to survivors or tames unless provoked. Otters can be extremely hard to spot due to their small size, they are mostly found in shallow parts of the rivers in the south east region and in the rivers surrounding the Islands redwoods. The Otter has a very low health and can be killed fairly easy by using any melee or ranged weapon. When killed the Otter can be harvested for raw meat, hide and pelt Survivors will have to keep in mind that the area the Otter lives in is also the home of predators like the Baryonyx and Piranha, This can make taming an Otter in the wild extremely dangerous, it is therefor recommended to make use of a taming pen. Due to the Otters small size it can be picked up by all fliers and dropped in a taming pen on a location of choice. Players that don't have access to a flier or play pve can also make the Otter follow you into a pen by punching it once. Keep in mind that the Otter has low health so it is not recommended to use any weapons. Because of its small size the Otter will fit through a normal door frame, make sure to close the door as soon as it is in the pen. The Otter can only be tamed passively in a manner similar to the Hesperornis. Fish must be killed, and their corpses dragged to the otter. While still holding the fish, press the y button on your controller to feed the fish to the otter. Feeding the Otter larger fish can be somewhat tricky due to game mechanics, A taming pen situated in water might prove very useful in order to approach the Otter without the dragged fish blocking the feeding option Larger fish, and fish killed by the Ichthyornis, provide a higher taming percentage per fish Once tamed an Otter can be equipped with a hat and carried on a survivors shoulder. While carrying an Otter it will provide a survivor with extra insulation. Leveling the Otter's Melee Damage increases the amount of insulation provided, hypothermic insulation or protection against the cold is about 75 to 82% of the Otters melee damage while hyperthermic insulation or protection against heat is about 34 to 38%. This will allow survivors to travel to colder regions that otherwise would be hard to reach without freezing. Otters can also be used to collect small amounts of silica pearls and sometimes even black pearls from fish that they kill Hold the left bumper and press up on the d-pad while looking at a fish to make the Otter attack it. It is possible to make use of ranged weapons when cross hairs are enabled on a server for better targeting. Survivors will have to keep in mind that the Otter uses oxygen. Using the Otter to hunt fish in area's with large fish spawns or area's with obstacles that prevent it from surfacing can cause the Otter to drown. In my opinion the Otter is a very useful companion for starting survivors. It's ability to gather silica and even black pearls can be of great value for survivors that don't have access to aquatic mounts. The Otters insulation bonus can be very helpful in area's on the Island where a survivor would normally freeze, however when playing on Ragnarok temperatures can be so extreme that survivors will still freeze even when carrying an otter with high melee damage. Attacking larger groups of Piranhas or Sabertooth salmons is not advised due to the Otters low health. That concludes our spotlight on the Otter. Don't forget to leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and comment to tell us which creature you would like to see in the next episode.
  10. Ps4 Ragnarok Issues

    I am currently playing ark on my ps4, and I downloaded the Ragnarok expansion when it first released for ps4, and ever since then, I have explored pretty much all of the map and have not seen 1 otter, or ice wyvern/ice wyvern eggs/nests. All other creatures spawn(regular wyverns,griffin, ect) I have searched where the ice wyverns are suppose to spawn and no luck. I have also gone to coordinates where the nests are suppose to be but have not found any. I really want an Ice wyvern but they're doesn't seem to be any. What could be causing this? The game is fully updated as well to v515 or whatever the latest update is. I also haven't been able to find any explorer notes at all, and have found multiple ruins, possible locations for the notes. Please help, any response would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Otter inventory bug

    I don't know whether this is a bug or not, but otters don't get the inventory bonus for meat spoilage like the rest of the dinos. All dinos (afaik) increase the spoil timer on meat, including herbivores. Except otter. Please look into it if this is not intended.
  12. Otter On Shoulder Issue

    I have a visual glitch for otters when they are on my shoulder and only my shoulder. When I have an otter on my shoulder it looks like it's been distorted trying to map to my character. This makes the otter look like it's been flattened. Please help. Anything I can do other than start a new character?
  13. I was originally operating under the impression that our beloved Otter would also be making a appearance on consoles upon the game's full release a few days ago... Does anyone have any idea's as to the timeline of it being included in a future patch?
  14. Come join server name is nights server any questions hit me up on ps4 Nightwalker3000
  15. ~ BUG REPORT ~ ────────────────────────────── Ever wanted to see Giant Baby Otter Tentacles? Well now you can! Seriously though, I found this hilarious!

This video also shows the end result. ≻─────✩─────≺ Screenshots: ────────────────────────────── I hope this bug report was mildly entertaining enough.
  16. My Otter wearing hats has got to be the cutest thing I have ever seen in a game. I went and tamed an Ichthyornis just so I can tame more otters easier.
  17. Issues taming Otter

    Hello, I just tried to tame my first otter and I found it difficult to feed it fish as I could not get the "Press [E] to feed" option to come up. The issue is that the fish was large enough that I could not target the otter through the fish. I managed to feed it a medium fish by timing a short sprint so that the fish lagged behind my character slightly and that allowed me to eventually (after many tries) get 1 fish fed to it. I tried on a bigger fish and eventually gave up. Not sure if there is a way around this or what. I thought I would post it here. Thanks, Mods: posted this in XBOX instead of PC by mistake. Needs to be deleted or moved. Sorry.
  18. Give us more shoulders

    With the upcoming otter, there will be too many kawaii floofs to cart around. We need more shoulders on the humans to carry them all Make it happen Wildcard
  19. I'm currently trying to make a slew of dossiers with a large number of creatures. Some of you may have known my other works of Sordes, Sciurumimus, Diicty, and several written dossiers. I have actually taken much enjoyment in creating these and I plan to release more dossiers. A LOT more. I'll put a list down below of the creatures I'm planning.I'm not gonna be taking requests until most of these creatures get completed dossiers. Currently I'm working on just the title picture (The actual creature on the dossier...Y'know, the one in color) for each of them so far. Several of these do have written dossers which I may link under their name. As for their use, well, almost all of the creatures on the list DO have a use that I have planned. Some of them I want to be a surprise, others I'll reveal what they are, but this is mostly going to be for creatures that aren't as well known. Also if you are an experienced artist PLEASE PLEASE give feed back. I've suddenly started to try to make my creatures in different perspective other than the usual facing left and right. If you ever find something that can be critiqued on PLEASE comment below. With that being said here is the list of creatures that I am working on. Anomalcaris -Sketched Bear Otter - Sketched, will be changed Cryolophosaurus -Sketched and written Cryptocleidus - Sketched Dendrorhynchoides - Sketched and revealed Dracoraptor - Written and Sketched Dsungaripterus - Sketched Harpagornis - Written Horned Gopher - Sketched Incisivosaurus -Sketched and Written Irritator - Revealed, possibly sketched but may be changed. Koreaceratops Leptictidium - Sketched Moa - Sketched Nothosaurus - Sketched, will be changed. Odobenoceretops - Sketched Pliosaurus - Sketched Pterodaustro - Sketched Pyroraptor - Sketched Saltasaurus - Sketched and Written Scorpion-Wasp - Written Shunosaurus - Sketched Spinolestes - Sketched Guanlong - Sketched, Slightly revealed That seems to be all of them, for now at least. I should also state none of these dossiers are requests for the creatures, I've tried that once with microraptor and...Well the actual dossier that got released was a huge letdown...In my opinion at least. No, all of these dossiers are basing themselves around the concepts of the creatures, from their abilities, to the resources they provide, to even some items or engrams that are completely original. After the microraptor dossier, I've never used any of these dossier for creatures that I would want in the game. I'm planning to be a game designer...Not a fanatic. With that being said, I have a lot of work to do. I will be trying to update this page as much as I can as I try to go on this little journey. But designing dossiers is just fun to me. Everything about their design and purpose makes me love them a lot. And please, give constructive feedback when you feel like it. Current Fan dossier pictures Written Dossiers Creature idea brainstorm Bear Otter Related to Nothosaur, everything else is a surprise Cryptocleidus A slippery plesiosaur that acts like the seal of the ocean. Dsungaripterus A specialized pterosaur that puts all of the pound in...um...impounded.. Horned Gopher Sorta like a purlovia...But with a slight difference Koreaceratops A dinosaur hippo. Will be able to harvest a special thing that can only be found underwater Leptictidium One word...Caladrius...That is like...The best hint I can give you..It's mysterious and ominous Moa Will provide a new resource, and I promise...It won't be an oversized dodo. It'll be a combination of a horse, a sheep, and a chicken. Nothosaurus Related to Bear otter, everything else is a surprise Odobenoceretops Need something cracked? He's on the case. Will be able to gather a new resource Pterodaustro Basically a Pterosaur version of a Ganet. Will be able to gather a new food source. Pyroraptor Give him caffeine and he'll heat up for sure...Also the definition of the actual type species is pretty important. Shunosaurus Whatever the Bronto has, it doesn't have, whatever Bronto can't do, it can do. Spinolestes Will possess an excessive amount of quills on its back...you'll never guess what those quills can do. Anomalcaris Has a relation to the trilobites and eurypterids Pliosaurus Thylacoleo of the seas...Beware fliers Guanlong A beautiful songbird...Brings joy to my soul and body. Leptictidium Need some hand sanitizers? Oh and bless you! Possible newcomer projects Pelecanimimus Kootenichella Hypuronector Raptorex Tiaraspis - (A small fry creature) My favorite resource for references...And ideas But seriously though, Susan Stieglitz is awesome for making this board. https://www.pinterest.com/SusanStieglitz/critters/ Important new mechanics to take note of Personality types Dream Ark Map and new biomes New Engram System New Taming methods New engrams - COMING SOON New resources - COMING SOON New Debilitations - COMING SOON
