Genesis Theory Hello Everybody, I am sure that you, like me just can't wait until Genesis, with its release only 4 days from when i am writing this (Part 1 at least). This morning i came up with an entire theory about Genesis and before you close this page just hear me out. I am relatively new to ARK and as such haven't completely finished the explorer notes yet, (I have read Helena and Rockwell) however what i have read seemingly confirms my theory so without further ado hear it is: Genesis will take place before any of the previous DLC's including The Island. Before you dismiss this have a moment to think about it. My theory states that Genesis observes the Genesis Program which is to train humans to fight the titans, which you do in Extinction, this sounds crazy but let me explain. In Helena Aberration note 17 and 18 it states that they found Homo Sapiens being grown in test tubes in the ARK's Control centre. For any of you uneducated people out there Homo Sapiens are humans... Effectively. My theory is that the humans in the test tubes undergo the Genesis Program, a simulation that will test the humans ability to survive, overcome, and most importantly, adapt. (I will explain why that is important later) The humans that managed to beat the Program would be sent up onto the ARK that they were on, for example the humans in the test chambers on Aberration would go up into Aberration, but remember, only the people with the greatest, skill, strength, and smarts would manage this. The ARK's would serve as the final test for the survivors. If they could conquer the ARK and beat the Overseer, then they will have proven that they are the best of the best, and they may just be the ones to defeat the titans. If these survivors were to beat the Overseer, then they would go to a different ARK, and this is where the adaptability comes in. The ARKS would test the survivors ability to adapt to situations. Once the survivor has beaten enough ARKS to prove themselves (The survivor might have gone to multiple ARKS between scorched earth and aberration) then they would be sent to earth to fight the greatest challenge, the titans themselves. Finally, you might argue about why the survivors had no memory of the Genesis Program, and there is a very simple reason for this. Take a step back for a moment and think about this, because there are two reasons. One, if you knew that you had been training your whole life in order to fight massive monsters and kill them, bringing peace to the land etc. then wouldn't you just decide to avoid doing that? so they would perform a mind-wipe. The other reason is simply that within the Genesis Program if you remembered every time you died in the simulation then wouldn't you just change something slightly each time up until the point that you beat the program? That would require no skill and when you arrived on the ARK and it was a life or death situation, you might have a bit of muscle memory but you would lack that key component, adaptability. Hundreds of people would just be sent to their deaths on the various ARKS. And also, it would be a bit unsettling to remember dying multiple times. So the simple solution is to perform a mind-wipe on the people every time that they died and when they beat the program. If you can think of any reasons why this is untrue then reply to this and just say so, and i will try and figure out a way around it. This would make sense for the Genesis DLC and if they don't do something like this than honestly i would be a bit disappointed. Thanks for reading this and please tell me what you thought of it!
This is a place where we can discuss the hidden features of unicorn residue. We are all aware that upon consumption we will start tripping. Consuming the residue also gives 1 hunger point as well as a small boost in health and stamina. It can be used as fertiliser in crop plots/planters but I haven’t managed to get my dung beetles to convert it into actual fertiliser. I haven’t tried it in the compost bin. Unicorn residue can be combined with a note to create a ‘magical note’ but it doesn’t appear to function any differently to normal notes and very smelly notes. It can also be used as bait for fishing. I haven’t yet given this a go but from what I heard it is more effective than leech blood but less than amber baits. Comment anything else you have discovered about unicorn residue and any theories you may have.
Valgueros Pros and Cons First of i like to say that i do not hate Valguero,i actually like it,but i noticed some problems or shortcomings i would like to point out. Im going to go over the pros first though. Pros Good Water to Land ratio (alot of people dislike the ocean due to it being sort of a resource depot instead a full fleshed out biome) Heaps of metal,this map has alot of metal nodes,not as much as Ragnarok,but alot. Sap Stumps provide early game sap Heaps of pearls,this map has alot of silica pearls,the underground ocean also provides easy black pearls Oil veins,Oil pumps are always great Beavers,Beavers,Beavers,theres alot of beaver nest Cool ruins Plenty of small water sources,anywhere you build on this map you will have a water source nearby Underground Ocean,this provides a cool take on the ocean (some people where hoping for something like this in Extinction) Boreal Forest is a great biome providing redwood resources with jungle threats Flat areas,this provides alot of great building areas Small caves (not refering to actual caves) these provide base areas and cool environments! New Dino Cons Allosaurus Apocalypse,there are way too many allo spawns not enough crystal spreads,there is alot of crystal on this map,however it is only in a few areas on the surface making crystal one of the more annoying resources on this map Bugs? Bug creatures are harder to farm due to them only spawning in higher threat areas BroodMother,dont bother with her,she doesnt give tek engrams and only gives low tier to no loot. Caves? There are very little caves in this map and the ones that are really underwhelming,only 2 of the caves have enemies in them. Ice golem and Chalk golems being reskins,they could have made these alternate versions of the rock golems example making ice golems rock throw freeze or slow enemies but they are weak to fire,chalk golems rock throw being several small rocks for more aoe but less damage. No Chargenodes,batteries are impossible to charge on this map NOW FOR THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM The Abberation area is extremely lacking content,no vines,no rockdrakes,nameless,reapers,baslisk,shinehorns,featherlights,no liquid element,only contains 2 of the abberation biomes making it very boring(surface obviously cant be added) and not really worth,Wildcard has stated that this is for that way abberation doesn't become useless and not generate sales for abberation (abberation has probably sold 99% percent of what its going to sell ever),HOWEVER Abberation has been out for 18 months.To put this in perspective,Ragnarok came out only 10 months after Scorched earth released with all of its content being added to Ragnarok (phoenix came after ragnaroks release),this has caused scorched earth to become very pointless to ragnarok. This is most likely why abberation creatures are missing from valguero. Wildcard most likely doesn't want Valguero to become a replacement to abberation. However wildcard has to realize that hype and interest are two different things. Hype can create interest (Valguero Announcement trailer for example),However hype cannot sustain interest unless the content is interesting itself. Hopefully wildcard will stop being stubborn and give the players what we want,but this is how they responded to the whole Valguero Abberation thing.
Alternate Reality Ark. I've been having a thought in bouncing around in the back of my mind for awhile now. Have You ever heard of the Multiverse Theory? It basically states that there are infinite amounts of universes out there, each different then our own, with anything being possible. If thats the case, then that means, somewhere, out there, Ark itself is real, and everything we know about it is true. Did any of y'all think of something like this? or have i consumed one to many Narcoberrys?
