      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. TLC 3 Ideas

    Hello Survivors, Today I got a suggestion thread on a TLC 3 idea! So I really like the Creatures they picked for the recent TLCs and would like at least one more TLC update! *DISCLAIMER* These Creatures are obviously opinionated and are my ideas! We need a TLC Dedicated to Certain Sea Creatures! #1 Megalodon: I agree Megalodon is still a good mount, but lets make it better! Lets add a ability! Megalodons ability would be a enrage ability! Where if it takes a certain amount of damage at a certain amount of time (Depending on how much health it has) it will go in a rage mode where its Attack and Speed go up tremendously! Also the Model needs to be worked on a lot! #2 Icthy: Again another bland mount that is a good beginner mount, but I don't think this needs to be an Battle mount, more than a food gathering mount where if you need fish and or prime fish, The Icthy is the Dino for you! Also on a side thing make it playful, interactive with the survivor I:e make it do tricks and make it jump out of the water when mounted just like the Basil! Another cool thing is a Pod or Pack Ability! if you tamed multiple of Icthys the highest Stat tame will be the alpha of the pod! This will be they only great defensive part of the Icthy! #3 Angler: Surprisingly a mount I don't use a lot, but the only thing that could be cool is if we have a mechanic with the lure! #4 Carno: I know this is a land mount but this dino needs a increase badly! Remember back in the old days of ARK where if we saw a Carno and we got scared or we thought we were gonna die and we couldn't wait to tame one! Well guess what that doesn't happen anymore because of all the new dinos that have been brought into the game! So lets fix him up! Lets add a Charge ability that will Incapacitate certain creatures (Depends on there size), makes them slower and gives a opportunity to kill Opposing Tribes or getting ur prey! Also making the Carno look cooler and horns a little more sharper! What do you think? Please let this get noticed so the devs can at least look at this!
  2. Lost Servers

    I haven't been on XBOX ONE Ark in a while but where tf is server 680 (The Center) and Server 711 (The Center) Those two servers had my two level 80 characters on them. lol pls help
  3. It's time for an update

    Ark needs some end game love. We need more engrams at the end game level. We have done cool tek gear and have industrial forges and chem benches it's time to give us a reason to use such vast amounts of resources. We need some new end game content. Here is a thread for some end game content ideas.
  4. "FINALLY the easter event is here! I'm so excited!" nope. Ark wont update, it says it doesn't have to. Ive tried doing the 'validating steam files', i've tried cheat destroywilddinos, and nothing. NOTING is happening. any advice on how to fix it?
  5. Hi, took a brake from the forums and ark for a while (wild card’s service is just too bad) but now that I see the TLC I may just want to come back. I missed out on a lot of the news so what did I miss? Also is TLC phase two out for Xbox yet?
  6. Could start after last update. was flying on ragnarok map to around 34 37 and ark crashed. tryed 2. account - same problem now i cant even start ark- at end of loading - ark crashes again. got all new drivers reinstalled ark did file check reset resolution started with low graphic settings started with different start parameters - still same problem PC Specs : Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) Core I 7 6700 Asus Strix GTX 970 32 GB Ram some baby dinos should be death, some structures will start auto decay... help please
  7. Can anyone with experience help me, i am running windows 10 got 250Mbit/s connection speed. Seems whenever i patch my download speed is bad, 12,3 gig took me about 4hours speed drops often to 0, tried settings changing locations that did not help. So i hit finally the 12.3gig and it got cancelled for a strange reason and starts over again. Got enough HD space. this seems only to happen with ark Would appreciate any help/tips.
  8. The TLC2

    So I download the ark update and started playing around with the updated creatures. One of my favourite dinos the argy seems to have an issue that is new it can't pick up a moschop. I don't know if this is new and they're taking that ability out, or if the update messed up its ability to lift a moschop. Let me know if this is happening for anyone else or is it just me cause I can pick up Direwolf just fine.
  9. Downloaded TLC2 patch, launched single player game, gets to the A1_Far_WIP in the load and the game crashes. Tried using backup saved game file from a few days ago, same results.
  10. The blood colors are wrong for some animals! For example, the trilobite bleeds red, but this is an animal that probably existed before iron-based hemoglobin (what makes blood red) evolved It is believed that trilobites used copper-based porphyrin in their blood, just like their modern relative the horseshoe crab. So they bleed blue! Same with squids, spiders, scorpions, other arachnids and most mollusks. Compound Chem made a great infographic to summarize this, which I've attached to this post. So why not make the blood the right colors? For science! I went through the dossier and noted all of the animals that should have an exception to the red blood animation, in hopes that it would make it easier for the devs if they choose to make this happen. Please feel free to reply for discussion. Please like this post if you want to see more scientifically accurate aspects of Ark! Animals that should have blue blood: Achatina Ammonite Araneo Arthropluera Eurypterid Pulmonoscorpius Trilobite Tusoteuthis Animals that should have green blood: Death Worm (SE) Leech (It should be noted that Lampreys are vertebrates, and have red blood) Animals that can have either blue or green blood: Insects (6 legs) have hemolymph which is grey-clear when deoxygenated, and blue-green when oxygenated (i.e. when they bleed). Some people report different colors (i.e. bees bleeding amber) because when bugs get crushed other body fluids get released, like digestive system contents. Technically speaking, their blood is anywhere from grey to blue-green. Giant Bee Jug Bug (SE) Lymantria (SE) Mantis (SE) Meganeura Titanomyrma Animals that should have NO BLOOD: Cnidaria They have no circulatory system and therefore no blood, so they should have no bleeding animation.

  11. Game wont update

    On a recent install the game sits at 278.46 and nothing I can do will update it to .66. I.e verifying files, clean installs, update drivers, check for updates on steam ect. I submitted a ticket, however its gone for over 3 days without a reply from the support team. Any ideas?
  12. Where are the new servers? (Answered)

    Just wanting an update on how it's going? Getting frustrating how all communication just goes dead when stuff like this happens, can you please give the community an update? We would appreciate it especially those moving to new servers. Thanks.
  13. Is it just me or does the glider now feel like a lateral parachute? Pick one or the other. Increasing the durability damage to the armor AND making the person a completely helpless aerial target just means that the glider suit is essentially worthless for PvP now. A person gliding without the speed nerf was already unbelievably easy to shoot out of the sky. Now that you do MORE damage to the target, you don't even have to try. It's just free kills at that point. I already thought a glider suit was slow compared to some of the dinos you have to fight while using it. I was barely even able to handle a confrontation with a Griffin last night (pre-nerf) and most of that was because of my tame control (called my drake to go where I landed and flew into it/mounted after getting picked over and over and over) Essentially they're allowing griefers to just spam pick you so you can't activate the glider again. Were that the case my Rock Drake would be dead right now and all my gear lost. Anyone know if they fixed that Griffin grapple bug where you take infinite fall damage when you try to grapple a Griffin? That is the ONLY counter left that you could possibly use and it's broken/bugged last I checked.
  14. Baby doesn’t because of update

    Baby died because of update We hatched 5 rexes and as the rexes came to 1% we got a pop up saying that the servers are goin offline for 15 mins. It was the tlc update and it was 25 gb so no one of us made it back in time and everything died, bloodline lost i have sent tickets to developers but no response as of yet but would like to know if anyone’s has ever had a similar problem and how was it’s resolved as I can’t find any information on it anywhere. Thanks for anyhelp or advice
  15. I opened a ticket with support since I was having a lot of trouble finding the switch to enable the silencer feature on our Ark servers. I got a quick answer and here's the line needed. AllowHideDamageSourceFromLogs=true I hope this helps!
  16. I keep hearing on YouTube and other sites the tlc for PS4 is still in QA if anybody knows anything I would greatly appreciate it 😁
  17. Not sure if this is the right place to post this or if I should be contacting steam directly. I haven't played ARK for a couple of months now and decided to get back into the game. It needed an update which I expected (14.4 GB in total) and I set about updating it. Took 2-3 hours to do and then it wouldn't finalize the install; it begun to increase the time remaining to around 300 hours for the install to simply finalize, and showed no sign of decreasing. As it was late, and I had to get to bed, I paused the install and planned to retry the next day. I tried again yesterday to do the install, but now when I try, it says that the download will be 14.4 GB, but when I begin it, firstly it takes forever to allocate space for the download but the downloaded amount steadily increases from 14 GB to over 20GB. I'm not sure if this is an error on Steam's side or with ARK itself. I've been able to install updates and full games easily over the past couple of days from Steam with no issues but ARK simply does not want to cooperate. I'm currently trying to install it now and had to wait nearly two hours for it to pre-allocate space, and the download amount has again increased from 14.4GB and is currently at 21.7GB and raising. Would it be worth my time simply uninstalling the entire game and reinstalling it? Or is there something else that can be done? Thank you in advance, and apologizes if this is not the place to post this sort of problem.
  18. " Server option which makes the Silencer hide the name of the player who has killed you from the kill message and tribe log (enabled by default on Console, disabled on PC Official PvP servers)" Is it really that hard to tell us what the parameter actually is in the ini files? Maybe tell us which ini file it goes into even? Why should people have to go digging for something that should be made clear from the release?
  19. **This thread servers a dual purpose. One: Identify/list known issues and stating opinion on map's status, "Dead, TLC needed, or Good as is." Two: List recommendations if TLC needed.** As someone who really liked the center when I first switched from the island I found myself growing tired of it faster than expected. It was plagued with problems like the island wasn't. It had some serious issues that took away from the enjoyment of it. I never did the bosses there so I can't speak to if they are better or worse after update. But my issues consisted of: MANY locations on the map had areas to get under the map either entirely or where you were between layers I guess you could say. I strongly feel if it hasn't already this should be addressed it was a nightmare playing PvP on this map and getting raided from under map. I got really tired of having to be mindful where I walked so I didn't fall through and lose my tame or my stuff on my person. It strongly takes away from the game play when this is an issue you're dealing with, I am sure it exists elsewhere but I never had and haven't had these issues anywhere as close to as bad as I did while playing on the center map. There wasn't (at least from what I saw at the time I haven't kept up with it since I was there months ago) any real updates to the map ever compared to other maps. Haven't been paying attention but still not aware of much.. I know there was one maybe two recently? No story tied to the map, even if it wasn't apart of the original storyline why not give it something of its own? Open the Ark universe up a little? IDK could it hurt anything? Am I the only one who thinks this could be nice to add? Didn't have any unique creatures like Scorched, Ragnarok, or Aberration. C'mon can't make one single unique thing for it? Again could it really hurt anything? With all of the community's creativity I have a hard time believing Wildcard couldn't come up with something applicable to add here. So while playing on it I just felt like it was a place to die, since other maps were advancing and The Center didn't appear to be. It's an interesting map especially with the underworld. It would be nice to see some TLC come to the center and give it some more originality if you will. Help it stand more equal to the other maps. Since Ragnarok dropped it really seems to eclipse the Center. Maybe instead of having all the biomes like Ragnarok what if different biomes had different effects like one area has faster breeding, taming, etc. Those could easily be bad ideas so don't judge me just brainstorming. I am really more interested in what others think as I feel there are probably some awesome ideas out there and want a centralized place for ideas to be posted so Devs can easily see what people are thinking/wanting with the center. What are other people's issues/concerns with the map? Am I missing something? What should be added/edited/removed from the center map? Should the biomes be adjusted and maybe add a desert or an aberration-like area? Something else? Perhaps if enough people are interested we can get something accomplished. Everyone is invited to share their thoughts on the center map don't be shy no idea is bad. KNOWN ISSUES / BUGS **When specific issues are posted** UPDATED: 3/30/2018 Mesh/Ability to get under map.

  20. I just downloaded the update for Valentine's Day about an hour ago and the update paused itself several times. My boyfriend's pc sitting right beside me (identical specs on the pc) downloaded in moments without a problem. But once my update finally finished about 40min later through the stops and starts I loaded the game up and now the screen is flashing with thick green horizontal lines. It never did this before this update. No windows updates happened that I'm aware of and I've already validated the steam files (in progress of running it a second time as it found files the first validation that needed to be reaquired). UPDATE: I loaded after the 2nd validation (it found 2 files) - still green lines. I switched to windowed full screen rather than fullscreen and the lines went away but returned upon switching back to fullscreen like I always play it. I don't understand this.
  21. Is it possible to get an update h it goes with server you sage about 2 hours but now is 3 houres can we get eny info ??
  22. So, What's your favorite thing that arrived this update? personally, i'm a big fan of the new Rex tail, actually looks like a tail now instead of a stiff rubber stick.
  23. ** PLEASE BE WARNED ** If you do boss fights on Ragnarok, please be warned that it is broken! Tonight (after the v278.1 update) we very nearly lost our entire set of dinos in the first 60 seconds of a beta ragnarok fight due to what is either a MASSIVE undocumented change or a HUGE bug in the abilities of either the rexes or the dragon. Our tribe has been successfully farming alpha Ragnarok for a few months now with this exact same team of rexes, players, saddles etc. After a complete successful ALPHA fight our rexes usually have 10k-15k health. TONIGHT after 60 seconds of the BETA fight they all got down to ONLY 1K-2K HEALTH!! We have our team of 18 purpose bred and highly levelled Rexes, plus our pig and yuti. The rexes have min 35k health, 600-800 damage and 100+ saddles. The alpha fight is not easy, but we normally complete it with anywhere from 15-25 mins to spare. Our rexes usually have around 10k-15k health left at the end of the fight. Occasionally we have lost a rex or two during the fight because they have gotten stuck on rock elementals. Tonight we took our usual alpha team along to a beta fight to help out another tribe on our server, and I'm so glad we did this instead of our usual alpha fight. PLEASE share this information as quickly as possible amongst your Ark friends. We very nearly lost our entire set of boss rexes. These represent many hundreds of hours of breeding and raising, and hundreds more hours levelling them all up. Add to that the incredibly expensive saddles and it would have been an epic disaster for our entire tribe due to absolutely no fault of our own. WC, please share this info immediately, and fix it asap!
  24. Ps4 patch 1.63 notes?

    I had a PS4 update last night for roughly 4.6 or something Gigs. Was this the same fix as what PC got? Just curious as I didn't see any notes about it for PS4 and thought the 277 major update was only for PC. If they are different can someone point me or advise me of what was added/changed? I was following it sorta close yesterday and didn't notice any mention to it being related to PS4 as well so forgive me if I missed it.
  25. Patch Update 277

    I tried to update my game to P.277 but the update stopped at 5.4GB and didnt move.I tried to verify files then update started from 0 and stopped again at 5.4GB
