      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.

      Official PC: Hard Turret Limit begins on 18th of February at 1PM ET   02/16/18

      On the 18th of February, at 1PM ET we will be enabling the hard turret limit on all PC Official Servers. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius. This will work on autoturrets, heavy turrets, tek turrets, plus plant turrets and is no longer map specific. The hard limit calculation is done on start-up, so if your turrets are ever over the limit, they will be randomly shut-off until you're under the limit. In order to restore shut off turrets, you must pick up any which exceed the number, as well as shut-off turrets and replace them in order for them to work.

  1. Hey! So, I'm new to this forum and I'm about to buy a PS4, and I would like one of my first games to be ARK: Survival Evolved. It looks quite fun. The problem is, I would only like it if I could play Multiplayer on it for free, without having to ask my dad to get PS Plus. So, is there any way to play ARK: Survival Evolved without getting PS Plus, or is it Multiplayer even without PS Plus normally, or is it only Multiplayer for those who have PS Plus? I know some games don't need PS Plus for Multiplayer and some do, but does ARK: Survival Evolved need PS Plus for Multiplayer? Thanks, PIZZA.
  2. Species Z Plants

    Question: When planting Species Z plants in the crop plots around your base, aren't they supposed to keep nameless away? We have a bunch of plants scattered around the base, coating our base pretty much in their glowing particles, but still if we dear venture outside without glowpet, they spawn like crazy. Not that we can't handle them, but since last patch I noticed they actually spawn. This wasn't the case before, as we could run around freely next to the base with these plants.
  3. Hi, I’m thinking of starting over and have already found a good taming speed to use, and now I need a difficulty so, what is the average difficulty on official? Also what difficulty would I have to set to make the Dinos spawn around level 30?
  4. Is it possible for me to rent a Linux server and then host an Xbox Ark player dedicated server from it? Or are we stuck to only renting via Nitrado? Nitrado prices are insane and I feel like there are much cheaper options. I know PC players can host player dedicated sessions from a Linux machine and with cross platform now implemented I'm hoping that I can host an Xbox session from a Linux machine. I know there are detailed instructions for how to download, install, and host Ark on Linux but how do I tell the setup that I want it to be an Xbox session? I don't see this discussed anywhere in ark.gamepedia.com/Dedicated_Server_Setup My plan is to rent a Linux server from Digital Ocean and then host from there. Any feedback or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
  5. How?

    Is it still possible in 2018 to repair something expensive (weight issues) such as an industrial grinder which is on 184/2500 health? and how would I go about doing that? thanks. The materials required to repair it: 1483 metal, 927 crystal, 371 paste, 278 oil, 278 poly.
  6. Twin Drakes

    So we got twins from our level 175 egg. Aren't twins supposed to be identical? Both color and attributes? Cause after imprinting our drakes, we noticed they have different attributes. One has more weight, food and melee than the other one has.
  7. Multiple seating dinos

    Me and my brother are looking for an easy way to transport our selves across the island and I was wondering what are all the Dinos that seat multiple people? Also what Dinos have platform sattles?
  8. Question about quality

    So I was playing a couple days ago and I killed an Alfa raptor and got a ramshackle hide shirt and I was wondering, what’s the difference between primitive and ramshackle? Also how can I upgrade the items I already have?
  9. I have just normal ark for the xbox one, and I have normal ark for the PC with steam. I have gold on xbox, the xbox app on the pc and everything. I am clueless on how to play with my little brother ark from my xbox and computer. We want a private game session where we can be beside each other and just play. Im not sure if I have to start a non dedicated server or what, but when I try that and start one up with crossplay I have no idea how to join that session from my computer. If someone could please instruct me on how I can crossplay it will be greatly appreciated.
  10. How to make kibble

    How do I make feathertail and glowtail kibble? Tried the recipe on the wiki in a cooking pot but did not work!
  11. Transfering servers

    If I transfer servers with a tribe mate and tames, said tribemate and I are no longer in a tribe. If I create a tribe in the new server and add my buddy, will we be able to safely bring back our tames to the old server? how does this work?
  12. Hello, Does the recent 40% damage reduction on the cavewolf/ravager affect tamed wolves as well? Because tamed ravagers are considerably weaker compared to their wild variants, since we do not have the bleed ability....
  13. When do any turrets over the 100 cap in radius turn off? on PS4 we see the number now, but does that mean any turret over 100 will not shoot, or is there another update to come which then turns them off?
  14. Aberration : Pre-Download

    Hey WildCard, is there going to be a possibility to pre-download/pre-configure our servers with Aberration? I know people that have not so good Internet, and if they need to download the full DLC on launch day (assuming download services don't go down), they will miss out on the initial launch. Same when we need to update our servers on launch, I'd like to be able to configure and finalize my Aberration server so it's ready when the game launches.
  15. possible bug, and a question

    Hi All. First: the possible bug:- I've been looking at ProcMon on Windows to try and work out how many cores to allocate to each Ark server instance. It hasn't told me what I need yet, but I did notice a repeating entry... 10:53:50.1442710 ShooterGameServer.exe 2812 IRP_MJ_CREATE C:\ArkServer\ShooterGame\ShooterGame\Content\Mods\Ragnarok\Ragnarok_B4_Underwater_Near_2.uasset NAME NOT FOUND Desired Access: Read Attributes, Disposition: Open, Options: Open Reparse Point, Attributes: n/a, ShareMode: Read, Write, Delete, AllocationSize: n/a 3076 Which suggests that the server is trying to access a non-existant file. Secondly, the question:- Does anyone know how many cores I should allocate to each server instance (using window's CPU affinity mask)? I've tried allocating 2 cores per instance, but ShooterGameServer still uses cores not specified in the mask. For example: start /AFFINITY 0x00C ShooterGameServer.exe .... The above mask, 0x1100, still results in threads using CPU 0. I have to ask if Windows is botching things or is ShooterGame using more threads than can sit on 2 cores, or am I completely misunderstanding masks or CPU allocation or something? Thanks.
  16. Hi. So I play on official pvp and I've noticed that the PvE auto-decay timer effects us now too, which is fine, but I'm confused. What exactly needs to be connected to/by Dinosaur Gates so that they don't auto-decay? for example, I put down 6 stone Dino gates in a row with doors on either end (typical Griffin trap) and after about a week, it all auto-destroyed. I looked at other traps and theirs hasn't, but I haven't noticed that they've done anything special to keep theirs in place? Also, how do you prevent a pillar from auto-decaying now? thank you in advance.
  17. Hello this is my first post. I've been playing ark for a few months and love it so far. However I've taken a break from multiplayer online and just want to focus on single player and play split screen with my girlfriend. We don't have the income to buy a new TV, ps4, and game and honestly shouldn't have to. The words on the screen are too small when it goes to split screen and is making it difficult for us both to enjoy the game. Can you guys please fix this. I've seen others with the same problem.
  18. If a different tribe is at Green Ob (Ragnarok) and another tribe is at Blue (Rag) and they both start the boss, will one tribe get instantly killed?
  19. Hello, myself and the missus are prepping to take on our first boss (Gamma Brood) so I’ve been watching some videos/reading and something that I’m slightly concerned on is teleporting to the boss. I hear people saying stuff like don’t be mounted on a Dino when teleporting or you can’t have saddles on the Dinos when teleporting etc. So I’m just looking for some clarification on things I need to know about teleporting to the boss so that no Dinos or player gets left behind. Currently all I know is we have to fit our Dinos onto the pad at the obelisk! We are playing on ps4 in case the version makes a difference to the info, thanks in advance!
  20. I'm playing the game with my friend and we have been playing on a non-dedicated server but the tether distance is crippling and I want infinite range so we can do caves and multitask.
  21. Yo. I've always known that the Industrial Grinder is great for XP, whether that's a tribemember standing nearby for character XP, or sitting on a dino to give it its shared XP instead. What I've always wondered is, if you're solo, is it worth grinding wood/stone alone? do you still get a decent amount of XP from grinding wood all on your own?
  22. Transfering

    Simple Question, will you be able to transfer your person from Ragnarok to aberration?
  23. Hello again, Like the title states did they ever patch or adjust these guys waking up at night no matter what per their dossier info. I just want know as I want to get a couple of these guys for egg purposes but if they wake up at night still and with this event having longer nights I just want to know where I stand. Any and all help is appreciated Oh also the wiki is not loading, probably everyone on it. Can argent pick these guys up? Using a community trap and just wanted to know that as well. Thanks again.
  24. Camera on PS4

    I was having a look through my engrams recently, when I rediscovered the camera. It came out before the paintings and I just sort of forgot about it. I took a couple pictures with my camera to post in my gallery, but to my displeasure, they were nowhere to be found. Is there something I'm missing? All google searches have dug up nothing.
  25. Okay, Something has been bothering me and my girlfriend, but due our characters, we don't want to risk it before having solid information. Consider the following set-up: Survivor level 115 Located on TheIsland Second server in the cluster, running Ragnarok You're standing at the Obelisk on TheIsland Now when I activate the Obelisk, I have the opportunity to "Travel to another server", and I chose to travel to my Ragnarok server. Now when the travel is complete, I have 2 options: "Download survivor" and "Spawn new survivor" Question: What happens to my level 115 survivor if I decide to "Spawn new Survivor" on the Ragnarok server after the traveling?
