Greetings! I was having an issue on PS4 where I wasn’t able to make group whistles or whistle to change the behaviour of the tames. After having a few conversations with my friend about his settings, we realised that it wasn’t working due to the fact that I’d assigned some dinosaurs to groups. Even dinosaurs that weren’t in a group wouldn’t listen. Once I’d removed all tames from the groups, they decided to listen to me. Huzzah!
Unfortunately it hasn’t reduced the number I’m accidentally killing, last nights casualty was out last remaining mammoth who I was standing under, blissfully unaware that my attacks against a wall were also hitting her. Turned out the wall had more hit points than a 123 mammoth. Who knew?
I don’t know if the issue about the groups and whistles is common knowledge, I’ve only been playing about 7 months but if it isn’t and you think it might help new players please can you share it.
Keep up the great work and I’m waiting earnestly for my next instalment of Rated Ark.

Tyrant of the Pink Barbers Tribe

P.S. You’ve probably already worked out why we’re called that but just to confirm, if we see someone sleeping in a roofless building we cut their hair and moustache and dye them Pink. Since they’re asleep they don’t really have any say but it feels wrong to just take that hair (for fur armour) without leaving them anything in return and who doesn’t like a giant pink Afro and matching moustache?

Community Crunch 131

On May 22 Primitive+ received a major update with a number of fixes, incorporation of major base game patches, as well as full Total Conversion functionality, including engrams, on Aberration and Scorched Earth.

The update included the creatures from TLC 1 and 2: the Rex, Procoptodon, Gigantopithecus, Direwolf, Direbear, Argentavis, Parasaur, Raptor, Sarcosuchus, Spinosaur, and Triceratops.

 

This Update added previously missing P+ engrams to the ARK Expansions Aberration and Scorched Earth, as well as missing saddles to previously released creatures. Non-primitive items have been removed from Scorched Earth and Aberration drops, and the Hazard Suit has been added to the Advanced Workbend (in Aberration). These changes now allow for a Primitive Plus experience on both of ARK's expansion packs!

 

GOON

Mindwipe!

PC player will received a free forced mindwipe with this past patch. The mindwipe was conducted due to changes that were made in our last patch regarding the altering of weight values of armor. In the interest of fairness they wanted to allow us to redo our characters to compensate for the altered weights of these armor sets.

This free mindwipe will come to console in the patch that correlates with these weight changes, which will be mentioned in the respective console patch notes threads at that time.

The Great Migration #3!  -Blue-

Once again it is time for them to remove some lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official legacy network. Over time the ARK population has migrated from legacy to non-legacy and in its wake left many servers with low populations for 0-1 players in a significant amount of cases.

Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works:

ESME

Taking Down Low Pop Servers
With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as popularity of game mode they will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of which retain a 0-1 player concurrent population. These servers will be taken offline on June 12th. Any existing server that is not considered a low pop server and is not taken down at this time will still exist on the Legacy network.

Legacy servers will continue to remain on a separate cluster from the new cluster, which means you will not be able to transfer anything between Legacy servers and the new servers.

We have included a link in the show notes that will take you to a complete list of the LEGACY servers that will be deleted on June 12th. You have from now until then to move your belongings onto a server not present on this list. Please click one of the links below. They are separated by platform (PC, Xbox, and PS4).

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Wild
One of the smallest predators on the Island, Compsognathus curiosicarius can be seen as a pet, a pest, or a threat.

While alone, Compsognathus is not dangerous or aggressive. In larger packs, however, it remembers its underlying carnivorous nature.

After a group of Compsognathus grows to a certain size, their pack mentality always seems to embolden them to “attack.”

For some reason, Compsognathus is not naturally afraid of humans. Rather, it seems to be quite curious about humans and their instruments of survival. They tend to be drawn toward humans out of this curiosity, and then call their pack mates to help explore their discovery. This usually leads to the aforementioned pack aggression, with dangerous results.

Domesticated
Compsognathus gain increasingly significant attack power and speed when in close proximity to other Compsognathus, as their pack aggression takes over their behavior.

Additionally, their distress call carries quite far, rapidly alerting the tribe and its pets to danger more efficiently, and increasing the likelihood of forming a so-called "Compy Gang."

 

#1 Tip from DododDex.com If you get 1000 or so level 300's, they can take on a giga

#2 Tip from DododDex.com

They're the Chihuahuas of the dinosaur world.

#3 Tip from DododDex.com

Where there's one, more will slowly spawn in. They won't attack you unless in a group of two or more. The bigger the crowd, the more damage they do

Scarlett's Diary (Goon doing Foe doing Scarlett)

Dear Diary,

          I have been very busy studying the creature of Ark and Bobbert has been helping tremendously.  It's nice to have someone like him around who is kind, handsome, and shares my same passion for the creatures of the island. Though I enjoy all the travel with Bobbert, it would be nice to settle down somewhere, and solidify our relationship in a physical sense.


The Esme is perhaps one of the most interesting creatures I've ever studied. It manages to combine characteristics of leader, mother bear, troll, and dung beetle. The most interesting thing about this creature is its ability to rally large groups of other creatures to its cause. When you run into a wild Esme, be extremely careful not to make it angry, because once provoked, the Esme and all of its friends will pounce on you and devour you alive. Do not under any circumstances interfere with an Esme's offspring, because much like a Direbear, it will rip you face off. Once enraged, this creature will hunt you down again and again until you admit defeat. The Esme cannot be tamed; in fact, it's more likely to tame you. This isn't a bad thing, however, because there is never a dull moment with this creature around. The Esme has lots of little quirks. It has strong survival instincts, and will leave its friends behind to save itself.  It is easily spooked, and will scream and cackle at random intervals. A little scattered, the Esme has been known to leave its resources all around the island. The Esme is also obsessed with picking up poop, so its not advised to keep it around animals such as phiomias. This creature has a mischievous streak, and is known to pull hilarious pranks on its friends, such as filling their inventory with the poop it has picked up. All in all, the Esme is a fascinating creature, and is well worth your while to get tamed by.

Yours truly,
      Scarlettefury

 

ESME WILL PLAY PRE RECORDED TIP if fells internet kicks him out!

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

 

Something I noticed on PS4, and it may be because the server pop was so low that not enough areas were active? I don't really know but the dino population was slowly dwindling to a point I was basically required to travel from my starter base in Viking Bay to well over the hill completely out of the area to get meat for my dinos.

 

The “fix” for this issue was using the console command :DestroyWildDinos

 

It triggered a basic respawn of all the wild dinos on the map it looked like we were going to have to do this about once a week or so to keep a good dino population with the number of players that are on.

 

You really should ask in global chat if anyone is taming a dino or something and wait until they are finished or it will kill their untamed dino.

 

A couple fun commands are which should be accessible on all platforms are: SetHeadHairPercent and SetFacialHairPercent.

 

Both of these commands do just what they say, one of them instantly grows the hair on your head and the other on your face.

 

  • The arguments for these are a number value from 0 to 1 where 1 = 100%
  • You can also access styles with SetHeadHairStyle and SetFacialHairStyle.
  • The arguments for these is a number from 0 to 7, each representing a style. You can find a list of the styles on the wiki.

 

Commands via Tatsu86 in Twitch Chat Live Recording :

Tatsu_86: I have tip commands as well, if you're interested, I'll list some off.
Tatsu_86: setbabyage - 1 = adult
Tatsu_86: setimprintquality 1 = 100

Tatsu_86: playersonly - freezes everyone except the poster.

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:
Esme: Something I have meant to share but I have forgot to week after week AND I was finally reminded of it when Fell shared a reddit post similar to it today in our CRR Discord Server and that is to turn your ground clutter down, especially in PVP. Many times when you  have a great computer, you're Like “WEEEEE” I have an amazing computer! I want everything turned on and turned up!” But then someone with their ground clutter turned off can see you and anything else you're trying to hide from other players. You think you're being incognito but you just look like a der da der sticking out like a sore thumb! This came to me back when I was playing Prim Plus official with the gang and Javlin thought he was being slick with his ghillie suit while trying to snipe me. I said , I see you……. He was like NO YOU DON'T!!!!! I said Umm yes I do, I have my ground clutter turned off man lol IT WAS HILARIOUS :)

KEEP ENTRIES TO 2 (unless your Blue because he’s Awesome) EACH HOST PLEASE

Name: Blue (You’re my boy, Blue)

Input:

 

Playing wow doing the dungeon grind with foe when able, but 10 lvl difference means that can only queue up together when doing same content. Currently playing through the Pandara’s Myst content which has been fun currently lvl 87 probably hit 90 tonight before bed but well see..

 

Been Listening to a podcast called Dungeons and Randomness, its a D&D podcast I’ve talked about before, I just finished episode 200 last week which is the final episode for arc 1 and I have to say I really enjoyed how it ended, you can tell the kinda ran out of time at the end to wrap some storylines up so they had to shorthand a few things but the last episode was 8 hours long after editing so I can’t even be mad. If your looking for a D&D podcast I have to suggest looking it up it was good but start off on arc 2 because its super good and they have overviews of ark 1 to help you get caught up.

 

Last but not least I love the Song Blue Moon and before we sat down today I listen to different versions of it and settled on Frank Sinatra, Sha Na Na which is on the Grease soundtrack or The Marcels versions.

 

Let Me know what version on Blue Moon you enjoy by ether Hitting me up in Discord under the What are you listening to channel just tag me or hit me up on Twitter @Spudwick22.

Name: Criikette

Input: Finished GoW4.  Awesome game! Can’t wait for NG+.  Played some Horizon Zero Dawn. Nice game, need to get back to play some more of it.  I like how it has some stealth mode/takedown aspect to it (ala Batman games). Conan Exiles.  I’m loving this so far. Gotta compare it to Ark because everyone does w/ survival games. So much more gear customization than Ark.  World bosses for legendary gear. Purge event (we’ve had one, going to be having another soon from the looks of it). Building is nice.  Having less issues in general with snap points and stuff then I ever had with Ark. “Taming” of thralls is a nice minigame of sorts. Been spending a lot of time working on getting some better ones.

That’s IT...

Name:FOE

Input:fist full of audible credits , WHat should i get ? , 40k slow grow league progress , wow , and cutting back on a few tabletop games .

 

Name:Esme

Input: Ark when I've had time to game. Life got crazy last week. Hit from all sides. Been enjoying some TV binge sessions the last couple nights while putting around in our official server tribe 👍 Caught up on Siren, the mermaid show on freeform, The Blindspot, and Blacklist. Watched the first episode of Lost in space on Netflix and liked it and I watched a few A little Help Episodes on Netflix which is family friendly.

COMMUNITY CRUNCH 130: NEW BEGINNER SERVERS & MORE!
Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

Upcoming New Servers!

FeLLoonnnnnnn

Beginner Servers:

Tomorrow, May 8th at approximately 10 am PST we will be launching a new set of servers called Beginner servers! Beginner Official Servers are an experience for new ARK players to test the waters without the threat of thoroughly developed tribes.

Unlike our regular servers, these have undergone some changes. First of all, there have been some limitations on how much a player or dino can progress. Player levels hit their cap at 44 and the highest encounter possible for wild creatures is level 30. Tamed creatures can receive up to an additional maximum of 30 levels. Due to the progression limits, some engrams are not achievable through levelling up but are found via supply crates. Some other changes include the disabling of alliances and tribe sizes have been limited to 5 members maximum.

Once established on a beginner server survivors can choose to exit into the rest of the official server network by uploading their character and moving to another server for the full ARK experience. Downloads of any kind are permanently disabled on Beginner servers so once you upload your character and leave the server you can't come back.

*Beginner* servers will be available to play on all platforms (PC and consoles) tomorrow! Tune into our Twitter account for further release information. https://twitter.com/survivetheark

Mod Community Updates!

Last week we made a change to the Mod Tutorial Contests. We increased the length of time for contests going forward to be a full month, and we doubled the awards. This should make it easier for people to participate without feeling like they have to sacrifice on their mods, and for non-native English speakers who found it difficult to put something together under the previous time constraints. This change takes effect with the current Freestyle tutorial contest which is now accepting submissions until the end of the month.

Now, it's time to announce the winner of the 4th Mod tutorial contest. The theme was "Space Day," a day dedicated to math, science, technology, and inspiring people to take an interest. The winning submission was a collaborative effort between RedDwarf and Pleasure for a Solar Panel mod. They also included a bonus tutorial video that shows the entire process of creating the custom assets for the mod!

All of the submissions and links to the tutorials are available in the contest thread.

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Goon Dino Name: Coelacanth (see-la-canth)

Wild
Coelacanth nutritia is one of the few creatures on the Island with a relative which can be found back home. The Coelacanth thrive in the waters around the Island, as well as within rivers and lakes. Unlike most Coelacanths, Coelacanth nutritia meat contains less oil and urea. In fact, it is one of the healthier sources of meat I've yet found.

Most Coelacanths are opportunistic feeders that eat anything smaller than itself, likely including baby water snakes, insect and plant life, and perhaps each other?

Esme : Domesticated
While their limited intelligence makes them unsuitable for taming, Coelacanths provide a viable source of meat for coastal or water-dwelling tribes. Many a day has been spent fishing by the water's edge, often with surprising results, as Coelacanths often have consumed discarded garbage that is sometimes of great value.

Due to their small size, though, a larger tribe would require a significant number of Coelacanths to feed itself.

 

XP For Kill Level 1: 1.00 XP
Drops Raw Fish Meat
Feces Size None
Drag Weight 25
Carryable By Kaprosuchus & Tusoteuthis


The Ark Gamepedia says it can Can Damage Thatch & Greenhouse , But I dont think thats a thing maybe because it claims they are Reactive regarding its Aggression?  

 

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

Quick update on teleporting a player or teleporting to a player from episode 9 of this season: I had a couple of folks in CRR who are console players (Tshx85 - xbox and johnny_wrench - ps4) both tell me to use the id number on your specimen implant in conjunction with Teleport commands; one of them also suggested the capitalization was relevant to this command as well... I have not been able to try this yet but hopefully will soon. My thanks goes out to Tshx85 and johnny_wrench for their suggestions.

 

Today I wanted to introduce you to the console command: ListPlayers

 

This can be very useful for checking to see if any players are online before you perform a dino wipe or a server restart. Could be that one dude who is AFK taming his soon to be perfect tamed Spino.. and didn't answer you when you called out on global chat.

 

You can use ShowMyAdminManager and get a visual of all players but I find this command at the console is much faster and quickly lets you see who is on the server.

 

One more really fun command is: SetTargetDinoColor

 

cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>

 

You can find a list of the color regions and color ID’s on the wiki.

***********Esmes “Got Name!?”**********

Esme: Build a small house around your tame if you don't want other players to walk up and mess with it. Use fence foundations to make the frame around it and then place your walls. You won't be able to place ceilings due to no foundation, but you can place a pillar and add ceilings above. You can also add you spikes to the outside if you're in a rough area and place spikes on top of the ceilings for protection.

COMMUNITY CRUNCH 129: NEW SERVERS, UPCOMING STREAM, & WILDCARD WORKSHOP!
Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :
Upcoming New Servers!
Speciality Servers:

Speciality servers are alternate game modes for ARK that last for a short period of time. Each new theme will bring on a new set of challenges different from that of servers currently available. However, these seasonal servers will wipe and change theme after a determined period of time.

We're looking for input from you today. We've set up a thread and we'd appreciate if you could drop your suggestions into the separate thread below. Changes will revolve around edits that can be made to the existing config. These types of changes can include many things like: tribe/alliance size, anything related to dino stats and taming, server rates, etc.

If you have a game mode that you think would be fun to play be sure to leave your comment in the thread:

Esme: What kind of game mode would you like to see as an option!?

 

Blue

Remember!

Beginning on May 10th and continuing every other week on Thursdays, the community team will be doing biweekly livestreams!

During these livestreams we will have Zen Rowe, Chris, and Jen bringing ARK news, celebrating modding, and the community as a whole every other week. We'll be playing ARK, showing off mods, and showing off your community creations for all to see. Survivors are invited to join us in the chat (and sometimes even in-game) to play and talk with the community team and other developers.

At this time we're going to begin gathering up your community creations to be displayed on stream. We are accepting any type of ARK related fanart. This can be drawings, videos, builds, ANSEL screenshots, handmade crafts, anything ARK related!

Be sure to follow Their Twitch page so you don't miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark

Wildcard Workshop & Mod Tutorial Contest Update!

Good day to you all! Zen Rowe here. I have a new Wildcard Workshop video for you today; we revisit replication with some practical examples. Make sure to check out the download link in the post for the project files.


The 5th Mod Tutorial Contest is now open! This time we're going to do a freestyle contest, meaning it's the perfect opportunity to put together a tutorial for any of those concepts that you kept telling yourself you would.

Today is also the last day for submissions for the 4th Mod Tutorial Contest, so make sure that you don't forget to submit those before the end of the day.

Enforcement Action
By Enforcement, Tuesday at 05:13 PM in General Discussion

Posted By Enforcement
Wildcard Staff

Update: We have completed our PC maintenance for an enforcement action pertaining to violations of our Code of Conduct. Our services have now resumed as usual. Thank you for your patience and ongoing support, Survivors!

As a result of today's enforcement, 40 tribes had structures and tames removed, 73 accounts were globally banned, and 21 accounts were hardware banned. This action concludes an investigation where the violations included aimbotting, under the meshing, DDoS involvement, RMT, use of other third-party programs (hacks), and direct association with others who violated the Code of Conduct.

---------------------
Esme
This year, on the 6th of February, we announced a one-time amnesty against a number of tribes on our Official PC PvP Network due to a widely exploited vulnerability. We informed the community that this would be a one-time situation, and in the future, we would continue to be heavy-handed against those who play unfairly and break our rules (now Code of Conduct) on the Official Servers.

During today’s enforcement action, we will temporarily prevent join access to a number of our Official Servers as we work to enforce our Code of Conduct. We realize the effect this downtime may have on our players and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Unfortunately, as we work to enforce our policies and take action against players and tribes that are not willing to follow the rules server outages are a necessary action that must occasionally take place for the betterment of the player experience as a whole.

Today’s action will impact multiple tribes and consist of the removal of structures, dinos, and items, as well as the possibility of a global network, BattlEye protected, and/or hardware ID ban for cheaters. In this instance, the violations include aimbotting, under the meshing, DDoS, RMT and using various other third-party programs. We’ve decided to issue bans where warranted and continued violations of our Code of Conduct will result in further wipes/bans.

The downtime will commence at approximately 10 AM PST and we expect this to last for approximately 6 - 9 hours. The servers affected by today’s enforcement action can be found here:

AirDubbai

Please ensure that when playing our game, you abide by our Code of Conduct and if you would like to make a report, you can do so here for PC or contact our support team for consoles.

To be clear, cheating in ARK will not be tolerated. We do not take our responses and actions lightly and have put much thought and deliberation into how we would best enforce our policies moving forward. We will continue to diligently monitor our game for rule breakers, cheaters, and all around “bad actors” and will continue to commit resources to implementing new and better solutions related to detecting and removing those who are playing unfairly.

We realize that innocent players will be caught up in the enforcement of our Code of Conduct. Unfortunately, there is no perfect “silver bullet” solution as we work to improve our game in this regard. We apologize for any loss and inconvenience that this may cause, but feel that it is a necessary side effect of enforcing our rules. We will continue to do our best to ensure that ARK remains a fair, fun, and competitive environment for all.

Thank you for your continued trust, patience and ongoing support, Survivors!

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Dino Name: Cnidaria (ny-dar-ee-ah)

Wild
Cnidaria omnimorph is another example of a creature which should not exist. It has traits that seem derived from many types of jellyfish. It possesses the size and shape of large egg-yolk jellies, the powerful sting of certain box jellies, and the bioluminescence of deep-sea jellies. This all combines to make a dangerous creature that lights up the deepest reaches of the ocean.

Cnidaria is not generally aggressive, because it lacks normal perceptive senses. It generally just floats along on the current until something gets close enough to sense, at which point it attacks. While its attacks are not directly powerful, its sting injects an incredibly strong and fast-acting sedative.

Domesticated
As Cnidaria is barely more intelligent than a plant, there's no effective method to tame one.

Most tribes kill Cnidaria on sight, then collect its reserve of powerful sedative (bio toxin), to use in technically advanced long-distance tranquilizers.

 

Top 2 Dododex Tips from Dododex.com


#1 Never go near it with your Dino, it will kill you, your Dino, your friends, your family, the guy down the street, some guy over in Africa, all while they won't do a thing to attack it.

#2 Their attacks shock you (which makes you unable to move), and they often stick in groups. If you get surrounded by these, you're basically dead. Don't use melee weapons, use a crossbow.

GOON: Scarlet Diaries

Dear Diary,

          Bobbert and I have been travelling together for two weeks now, and we've been falling further and further in love. I also repaid his saving my life by saving his. He was pinned down by a sabertooth, and it was just about to sink it's teeth into his neck when I heroically ran in, crossbow blazing, and shot it in the eye. As we cooked the unfortunate animal, I felt the chemistry between us increase. As we talked, he started moving closer and closer towards me. Finally, we were inches apart, and I knew that Bobbert was the one for me. As our lips met over the cooked meat, it was like the entire world was ablaze. That was because we had both moved too close to the campfire, and were now burning. We managed to put our clothing out, but now I know for certain that Bobbert feels the same way about me as I do for him.
      The Foe is a strange, dangerous creature. Extreme caution must be taken if encountered in the wild. If the Foe sees you, it will likely use it's nearest weapon, or raw strength to dispatch you and everything you hold dear.  The only way to bend a Foe to your will is to sacrifice a fellow tribe member to it. Once tamed, it is important to train the Foe properly, else it can be difficult to manage. However, it's also incredibly useful if managed well. A tamed Foe can wreak havoc on other tribes, and is experienced at trolling. It is also great at building, gathering resources, and killing other threats. The perks of a tamed Foe outweigh the negatives.

Yours truly,
                Scarlettefury


 P.S.  Esme Will, she asked me to in a dm (Can someone please read this in a normal, serous voice :) )   I would like to thank all of the CRR Gaming Group for their support. I have been going through a rough time in my life, and I appreciate the constant advice and good vibes that the group has been giving me. I heavily encourage listeners to join the group, and become part of this fantastic CRR family!

TIP TIME!

 

  • ONLY FILL OUT ONE OF THE TIP Sections BELOW FOR EACH EPISODE.
  • You do not have to add anything if you have nothing to add.
  • There can be more than one tip under a section, just not one host with multiple tips.
  • SAVE EXTRA TIPS AND INFO FOR FUTURE SHOWS SO WE WILL NOT RUN OVER OUR TIME LIMIT.

 

 

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:
Dubaii: Dude… gamma commands!

Felloon: Don’t agro aggressive dinos and think your thatch hut is going to save you! & one of the first items you should focus on crafting is a sleeping bag.


*****Alpha Tip*****
Do you have a tip for more experienced players? Share it below:
Felloon: If it's your playing on a server with badass dinos such as Extinction Core (and also to be determined if this works with Primal Fear), don't use turrets, psx or spiked walls because the last thing you want is to agro a badass dino that can rip your base to shreds. Back when we were playing on our Extinction Core cluster, my best advice for those folks new to EC was to build 4 high walls and keep you out of the wild dinos line of sight.

*****Enraged*****
Do you want to share something you would like to see changed or something you have seen that the community seems to dislike?

Esme: Some unbaked things I feel Wild card needs to get to work on.

Two shows ago we talked about the new codes of conducts. I said I think they should have reiterated them at release and I after talking about it with others We think they should have them linked to on the login screen. The tutorial is still non existent. One generic screenshot with a few sentences saying there are a few things that you might need to know before getting started then that's it, nada . lol

I wish we knew when structures plus or any other mods in the Supported Ark Mod program will be implemented.

 

*******FoeScience***************

Trying an experiment in the game? Share it here!

Blue:

Been doing the RP server with fellow CRR members Esme Crikket Goon and Foe. We’ve been having Fun Goon made a few neat upgrades to the Dino building (goon can talk about it). We went on a cool canoe trip but after about an hour or so of exploring we ran into a Server reset…. Se we quickly found a nice camp spot and Bunkered down for the night it was fun while it lasted.

Felloon:

Trying out a server one of our CRR members (AirDubaii) found that has both Extinction Core and Primal Fear. Since I'm a glutton for punishment and a sucker for bad ass Dino's I couldn't pass up an opportunity to see how well the two mods worked with one another. I think the wild dino cap is level 1000, not sure about player level but it's well beyond normal.

 

There are a couple of other mods they are using that are quite interesting, at least one of which I plan on implementing on our cluster and probably any other server I setup. It's called Editable Server UI created by Don Camillo. It's basically an informational mod for the server. You can place web links, server rules, server setup or any other information that might be relevant. It looks like you can do this per tribe as well. Very cool. The only thing that could make this mode even better, in my opinion, is to add a calendar that give you a notification icon when an event is due!!

See the mod at: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=924619115

 

Also back in full swing on PS4 0man and I are working towards downing the Ragnarok bosses on Yogi's server and he invited me to join him on official PvP to take a run at the boss fight. I'm very much looking forward to both.

 

I also plan on joining our group who have started to establish a spot for CRR on one of the new servers.

So much to do!

ESME: Trying out the FRESH servers with the CRR Gang! Shout out to Klev, Johnny, Goon, Foe, Air , and Dr. Aub who have tribed up with me to rock out a new CRR Rated Ark Base on our old stomping grounds, the Angry Beaver Island :)

KEEP ENTRIES TO 2 EACH HOST PLEASE

Name: Criikette

Input: Bought PS4 Pro God of War Edition.  Been playing GoW 4 since then. Great game, I’ve loved the series.  Had been saying for years that it would probably be the only game that would make me buy PS4.  I have always love mythology, most notably the Norse mythos. So with GoW 4 going into that Mythos, it’s right up my alley.  It’s funny how these games have done great jobs in pointing out how much of a dick most of the gods in general were.

 

Name: Blue

Input: Wow the trigger has been pulle, I blame Luminin….

Name:Foe

Input:Shadespire tournament !  , Steampunk Rally ,

 

Name:Esme

Input: Ark Survival Evolved , Most likely will be hopping back into Warcraft for a bit and want to play for World Of Warships:)

Season 2  Episode 9 of Rated Ark SHOW NOTES

Who wants to Introduce the show and hosts?

 

Welcome survivors new and old to Episode 9 of Rated Ark, The Ark Survival Evolved Podcast!

 

Today is April 27, 2018

 

  • We are a CRR Gaming Group hosted podcast , so that means the voices can change each week but the roundtable discussion will always be about Ark !
  • We have many ways you can contact us to share feedback, tips, or adventures!
  • You can tweet the show @RatedArk on twitter!

 

 

First we’d like to start the show off by introducing everyone here tonight!

Everyone introduces herself/ himself

( We can go from top to bottom in teamspeak to make it easy)

Tell who you are and how many hours you have in the game so far :)

*****LOOT DROP*****

This segment is for listener feedback.  Did we get any Audio? Emails? Tweets? Reviews? Do we have an shout outs to deliver? List them below:

 

Feedback From CRR Member Sumduud: A comment about the code of conduct part y’all mentioned “Structure Spamming - placing structures down such as pipes or wires for the purpose of disrupting others gameplay is against our code of conduct.” And said it was weird they didn’t mention pillars. The difference is you can’t just put pillars in someone’s base, but and old troll method was to run water pipes and enclose someone’s base. They can’t build through the pipes and the pipes aren’t restricted to build radius like other structures and on PvE the pipes can’t be destroyed if the troll refreshes the decay timer. I’m guessing this works with wires also.
So while pillaring is a prick move, there is usually some area somewhere to build, even if only up. With the pipes you can stop them from being able to build at all.

 

*****Fresh from the Forge******Ark News Segment

COMMUNITY CRUNCH 128: Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!

The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community!

 

Console TLC 2 Patch Soon!

On April 26th we will be updating both Xbox and PS4 with the TLC 2 patch.

It is important to note that this Thursday's console patch will be a BIG update. The base game for Xbox will be a 27gb update, Scorched Earth and Aberration will be 5gb and 8gb respectively. We don't have a current indication as to the size of the PS4 patch but we estimate it will be a large update, however not as large as Xbox. The size of these updates is due to the fact that all of the maps in the game have been updated and therefore the files for every map must be downloaded and replaced on your console.

FELL

In addition to the TLC update the patch will also bring the following changes:

- Enabling item transfers and the vanilla-version of aberrant creatures to be moved to Aberration servers. This means that you'll be able to take over your regular Spino to an Aberration server.

- Preventing people from building within the Ragnarok Puzzle cave, so if you store any structures or creatures down there, make use of this time to relocate them ASAP as once this update goes live on console, that will no longer be possible.

It is important to note that the Turret Update will not go live on console with this update, but instead a future one.

 

FOE

We have some exciting news to share with you today!

Beginning in May the community team will be doing biweekly livestreams. During these livestreams we will have Zen Rowe, Chris, and Jen bringing ARK news, and celebrating modding and the community as a whole every other week. We'll be playing ARK, showing off mods, and showing off your community creations for all to see. Survivors are invited to join us in the chat, and sometimes even in-game, to play and chat with the community team and other developers.

At this time we're going to begin gathering up your community creations to be displayed on stream. We are accepting any type of ARK related fanart. This can be drawings, videos, builds, ANSEL screenshots, handmade crafts, anything ARK related!

We will no longer be running Community Crunch contests here on the forums. The Community Crunch will transition into being our weekly news post, while the biweekly streams will become our new Community celebration initiative. We will instead be running contests on the livestreams, with a chance to win something special if your submission is the best of the bunch.

You can submit your ARKwork to our streaming email address: arkfans@studiowildcard.com

We'll be announcing our streaming schedule in next weeks crunch so check back in for that next Monday!

Be sure to follow us on our Twitch page so you don't miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark

 

Blue Mod Tutorial Contest Update!

For our "whacky buffs" themed tutorial contest we got some pretty hilarious submissions. Thank you for those, I had a good laugh 9_9.
The winner of the third mod tutorial contest is RedDwarf with his ridiculous Rocket Poop buff!

April 30th, is the submission deadline for the current contest for Space Day props!

Next week I will have a new Wildcard Workshop video ready for you, we will be continuing our coverage of Replication with some practical examples.

 

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

The Chalicotherium obsidioequus!
As stated in Helenas Dino Dossier:

GOON Wild
Found in small numbers within the Island's colder regions, Chalicotherium obsidioequus is normally a peaceful herbivore that prefers to spend its days lazing about or playing with its family. It is very territorial, however, and the entire family, young and old, will turn against an encroaching creature at just the slightest provocation.

A memorable scene to stumble upon is a group of Chalicotherium playing. One odd playtime activity for Chalicotherium is hurling large balls of snow or.. mud-rocks(?).. at each other. Smaller creatures in the area shy away from Chalicotherium during this exertion, for fear of being buried in snow or "gravel."

 

Esme

Domesticated

While many creatures are useful while attacking a fortress, Chalicotherium can be trained as mobile artillery. Its unique playtime habit becomes a rather devastating long-range assault tactic when it is given boulders to throw, rather than snowballs!

Taming Method Passive
Preferred Food Beer Jar
Preferred Food (P+) Wheat Beer

Equipment Chalicotherium Saddle (Lv 42)
Rider Weaponry Yes
Can you Carry Humans?  No

472 POINTS   TAMING & KO

Ark- "To bad we don't have any good ranged attack creatures"
Chalicotherium- "Hold my beer"

 

855 POINTS   FUNNY Dec 9, 2016
I don't always tame these, but when I do, it's with Dos Equis.

 

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

In-game admin command: EnemyInvisible

e.g. cheat enemyinvisible true

  • This command effectively makes you invisible to wild dinos.
  • Generally used for Event wild dino spawns.
  • Boolean values
    • True: makes you invisible
    • False: makes visible again.

 

Since I’m back on PS4 I plan on trying some of the admin commands to see if there is much contrast beyond the interface. I’ve only tried one thing so far and that is teleporting a player to me. First i tried using the ‘showmyadminmanager’ command just like PC and that functionality was not there, it appears the only thing that command is used for is banning and unbanning players.

 

I did a little bit of research and all i can find is the several reports of the teleport player commands not working. If I can actually find it or there is someone out there that know how its done on PS4 then please let me know and i will share that with everyone, and give you credit if that is what you want. (some folks dont speak up when you say you will give them credit)

 

Esme: Trying a new segment !

GOT NAME?

  • Bounty of Corruption
  • Dashingcrawlers

  • Cunningblades

 

 

TIP TIME!

 

  • ONLY FILL OUT ONE OF THE TIP Sections BELOW FOR EACH EPISODE.
  • You do not have to add anything if you have nothing to add.
  • There can be more than one tip under a section, just not one host with multiple tips.
  • SAVE EXTRA TIPS AND INFO FOR FUTURE SHOWS SO WE WILL NOT RUN OVER OUR TIME LIMIT.

 

 

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:

 

Goon - when you make a campfire for the first time, if possible make 2 or 3 of them, and keep the xtras in your inventory, you never know when you might be away from your base and need a fire quickly, for warmth or food, just remember to destroy it when you leave, help keep the islands beautiful

*****Mod Spotlight*****
Have you found a mod you love? Have you found a mod you hated? This is a special Segment that spotlights a mod or include an interview with a mod dev.

 

Foe- Pillars plus

 

Fully adjustable pillars.
New Structures:
- Wood/Stone/Metal Straight Pillars
- Wood/Stone/Metal Straight Round Pillars
- Wood/Stone/Metal Sloped Pillars
- Wood/Stone/Metal Sloped Round Pillars


 

*****Enraged*****
Do you want to share something you would like to see changed or something you have seen that the community seems to dislike?

 

Blue-

I decided to build a cliff base on a platform and found I can attach walls to the platform but when I went to ceiling off the top it wouldn’t go out past 2 ceilings due to lack of foundations why can’t the platform count as a foundation.

Esme: I think itd be fun to read our character cards!

FoeRender - 04/16/2018
A>R>K Advanced Reconnaissance Kill Team  , I have been a part of this team for well over a few decades now , time seems to almost blurr with the amount of time we spend in chrono cells sleeping until we are needed for our next mission . Only 2 missions left and  i get resleeved into a skin of my choice and enough credits to live comfortably for generations to come . Our job is complex but rewarding we are combat engineers , a lot of time and training goes into a soldier like myself ,  trained in not only combat but biology , geography , physics and engineering . We scout new planets habitable by humans and determine if there are any hostile life forms that we can either make a bond with or if possible strong arm into accepting our presence . That was what my life was like before i woke up this morning naked lying on the shores of an unknown beach on an unknown planet , my chrono pod crashed here after from what i am guessing was shot from the hull as an escape protocol . I seem lucky to be alive since there is almost nothing left of my vessel . I see large floating obelisks in the distance a sign of intelligent life i'll have to make my way to one of them to  make contact with its owners , but I also can't believe what I am seeing right now traces of Prehistoric life , scratch that I am now looking at living prehistoric life . This just became a lot more complicated …

 

Esme **Aayla Olaris** - 04/16/2018
A bit about Aayla Olaris & Her Experience upon arrival of this world:                                                                          Aaylas head hurt and she felt very groggy so she decided to stay in place , laying on her side, until her vision cleared enough to see where she was. The padding from her pigtail buns provided some comfort for her head against the hard ground.  She knew she was near trees as she could hear the wind whipping through their leaves. After a few minutes more of stillness, she decided to try to get on her hands and knees to feel around for something she could use as a weapon. She reached forward and found what she thought was a rock, but as she grabbed onto it she felt its shape change in the palm of her hands. She screamed out loudly and then covered her mouth with her free hand , hoping she did not draw too much attention to herself. Her vision was starting to return to normal so she stared into her palm as she loosened her grasp. The odor coming from the soft rock was a familiar one. It was poop. She screamed over poop. Feeling foolish, she laughed to herself and stood up to see if there was water near so she could clean her hand off. Just when she decided to take a step out from the shrubs where she had awoke. She froze in place as she watched two trees topple to the ground 50 feet from her. Something big was close. Too close…
A little bit about her personality:
Aayla enjoys the water as much as the forest. She tends to be very jumpy and is easily excitable which doesn't make her unexplained fear of the dark easy to deal with. She is very curious by nature and has a hard time focusing on one task at a time. She gets cold easily and gets mesmerized by shiny things. If given the chance to go on an impromptu adventure, she would feel at home declining the invite. She is blunt and very cautious and likes to take a bit of time to plan for dangerous excursions. She is also a bit of a clutz..

 

Felloon Can read Criikettes Loptr - 04/16/2018
both prisoner and crew, nemesis and ally.  Loptr's allegiances are as chaotic as his mind.  Blood as cold as the ice, and a temperament to match.  He feels best when surrounded by the cold, perhaps it reminds him of his ancient bloodlines.  While the other members of A>R>K were put into chrono cells, Loptr insisted on the older technology of the cryostasis, or icebox as he likes to call it.  He recognizes his team, and so joins them on this foreign land. Not necessarily out of friendship, but out of respect for their survival skills. He knows what must be  done, and will never stop until his body is laid out cold

 

Blue (Mr.Big)

Upon awakening to water washing over my face, blinking and looking around I was confused. Last I could remembered was staring back at foreign faces, laying on my back staring up. My memories are very fuzzy and incomplete and I'm not sure what to do. I heard a weird scream coming from my left I looked up to see a weird creature with what looks like a giant umbrella around its head. At a quick glance I realized it's showing signs of aggression and as I turned to run a glob of green goo came shooting from this creatures mouth blinding me. The blindness wasn't painful until the beast moved in for the kill. the last thing I remember was the pain as the creature tore me apart.

 

Again I find myself waking up on a beach, didn't i just die? What is going on here? looking down I notice I have some sort of gem coming out of my wrist and it seems attached, I can't seem to figure out what it does yet. looking down the beach i notice a familiar beast that I swear just murdered me moments before standing over a corps... the corps looks like me... what the hell is going on. I want to investigate but I can't bring myself to go near that beast again. I've decided that my next course of action is to find a place to make a camp so I can't gather my wits and try and remember something, anything. I've tried hard but I don't even know my name, if I'm to meet another human in this strange place what am I to call myself.

 

My new name came to myself as I explored the beach for safe shelter. As I stepped out from behind a giant rock I saw it, a Gigantic long necked creature just sitting there grazing on some grass near the beach. This creature was so Big and massive it was intimidating, and that's when it hit me Big I shall call myself Mr. Big its manly and intimidating so Mr. Big it is, now I need to figure out what's going on, where am I and how do I fit into this strange world.

 

Goon

 

“Man, what happened to me? Just lay here for a minute, try and gather my thoughts. Well, I’m on a beach, i can hear the waves, and I got sand in my crack. The sun is warm on my body, which leads me to think that i am naked. I guess i should open my eyes, and actually try and to figure out where I am, and how the hell i got here.”

 

I get up and walk over to the water, kneel down and start splashing water on my face.

 

“This water feels good. Wait, what is this in my arm? How did it get there? And was that just a trilobite that just swam past me?”

 

I stand up and start looking around. Walking down the beach, I see a triceratops.  Not believing my eyes, I walk up a small hill and come to the edge of a cliff, looking out, i am seeing dinosaurs, actual dinosaurs, and in the distance, there is a huge object in the sky, glowing. I make a plan to head towards it, not knowing what is going to happen.

 

“WHERE THE HELL AM I ?

 

ESME: Goon and I causing problems!

COMMUNITY CRUNCH 127: NEW CODE OF CONDUCT & INCIDENT REPORTS!

Code of Conduct

Blue:
Introduction
The code of conduct is subject to change without notification, though Studio Wildcard will do its best to ensure that changes are communicated clearly to those on the Official Network.

Failure to abide by our code of conduct can result in the removal of your structures, creatures, items or banning of your account from the Official Network and all BattlEye Protected Servers. Studio Wildcard reserves the right to immediately suspend player accounts as it deems fit. Action taken is at the sole and absolute discretion of Studio Wildcard and its employees.

This list is not exhaustive, but represents clear guidelines for players to adhere to when playing on our Official Network. For something you’re unsure of, please use your best judgement. When in doubt, reach out to us at ARKEnforcement@studiowildcard.com. Ensure you’re acting with some semblance of decency when conducting yourself on our Official Network.

FOERENDER:

Hacking and Exploiting

Hacking or exploiting game mechanics to gain an unfair advantage over other players is not tolerated.

> Hacking - examples are not limited to but can include using third-party programs such as ESP, Aimbots, and Game Engine Modifications.

> Exploiting - examples are not limited to but can include attacking and living in unintended game-zones (under the mesh or above the map), duplication of tames, items and characters, unintended building mechanics (such as floating structures, using the world barrier as a snap point), building a box around your quetzal (or other platform creatures) to completely prevent it from taking damage, modifying your game files to remove key graphical components (water, fog, etc), and intentionally crashing users or servers (through DDoS or otherwise).

Benefit Hacking/Exploiting, Tribes, Alliances, and teaming up.

When playing on our Official Network, players must ensure that they are not taking advantage of hacking exploits and unfair play. Do not under any circumstances allow hackers to join your tribe, alliance, or party up alongside you within the game. It is your responsibility to remove them or yourself from the tribe. If you witness someone breaking the rules through the use of a game exploit, or a third party program (such as ESP or AIMBOT) ensure that you isolate yourself from those users and are not playing with or alongside them to avoid breaching our code of conduct.

Hack related chat
There should be no discussions in game or on our official sites regarding hacks, including access to cheats, where you can acquire them, or how they are utilized.

GOON:

Griefing
Spawn Blocking

Spawn Blocking occurs when tribes intentionally block multiple spawn points for the purpose of not allowing any new players to play on the server (including cross server players). In the event your base inadvertently or accidentally resides on a spawn point you will not be penalized.

Here are some examples of what spawn blocking can consist of, but is not limited to:

Using structures that players spawn into and can not get out of

Using spikes/spike walls at player spawn locations

Turrets located on or near spawn points

Dino gates, or any type of structure/cage that is meant to trap or instantly kill a player and prevent them from spawning on the map

Aggressive dinos placed near spawn points in order to instantly kill players that spawn in.


Crikkette
PvE Specific Griefing

> Game Blocking - you are not allowed to block other tribes from playing the game on PvE servers. This can include but is not limited to:

Building at their base

Blocking in other tribes dinos

Blocking access in/out of a tribes base

Obstructing pathways or waterways for the purpose of denying another tribe access

A GM may ask you to move or relocate if your structure is negatively impacting a server (ie. you block off a large portion of the map so that other members of that server cannot access it).

> Structure Spamming - placing structures down such as pipes or wires for the purpose of disrupting others gameplay is against our code of conduct.

ESME:

Misconduct

Behaviour, Chat, and Interaction With Others

Interactions with other players or Studio Wildcard employees through text chat, voice chat, and signs or paintings must adhere to the rules below and you cannot use an alternative spelling to circumvent restrictions.

Ensure that you do not:

> Offend - this includes but is not limited to language which is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, sexually explicit, or racially, ethnically or otherwise offensive.

> Post Personal Information - belonging to someone else in game, or any Official websites or forums related to the game.

> Harass, Stalk, Threaten - such as sending repeated unsolicited or unwelcome messages to specific users/tribes and can include but not limited to those sexual in nature or messages that would cause discomfort.

> Disrupt the game - such as intentionally causing the chat screen to scroll faster than other users are able to read, or setting up macros with large amounts of text that, when used, have a disruptive effect on the normal flow of Chat.

> Promote - do not send messages which are advertisements for inappropriate topics, including scamming, hacking, exploits or the sale of goods and services unless trading within the game for game specific resources, for example 50 Stone for 1 Polymer, A trike for a Rex, etc.


Criikette
Player, Steam and Tribe Names

When choosing your name, steam name, or tribe name you must adhere to general decency and abide by the following rules. If Wildcard determines your name to be improper, we may change the name and or terminate your use of our Official and any BattlEye Protected Servers. You should not use an alternative spelling to circumvent the name restrictions listed below. You should ensure that your name does not:

> Offend - names may not contain vulgar, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise offensive, including any usernames which are sexual in nature.

> Impersonate - pretend to be someone else with intent to impersonate, including, without limitation, another user, tribe, Game Master ("GM") or Studio Wildcard employee.


Blue:
False Reports

When reporting others, please ensure that you are genuine. Reports made to harass other players or for restricting their gameplay when no codes of conduct have been broken are deemed punishable by Studio Wildcard.

You can increase the effectiveness of your reports by including as much information as possible, as well as video or picture evidence. We never take our decisions and actions regarding potential malicious player behaviour lightly. Suspensions, server wipes, and/or bans are only issued after careful review of all internal and external evidence.

Wildcard Workshop & Tutorial Contest #4: Spaaaaaace!

Today in the workshop we begin to tackle the topic of Replication, how code functions in a multiplayer environment. We go into a broad overview of the different methods available for replication, and my band of merry modders helps to give some visualization to how this system works. In the next video, we'll dive into some actual practical examples.

THE DOC

XBOX & PS4 :

Console Transfers and TLC 2!

We are now targeting the console patch (Xbox and PS4) release during the week of April 23th and will keep you posted about more accurate release dates once we get closer to the date. This is later than what we reported in our Crunch last week, but we are confident that we will be able to meet the deadline of the week of the 23rd over the previous week. With this update, we'll also be:

- Enabling item transfers and the vanilla-version of aberrant creatures to be moved to Aberration servers. This means that you'll be able to take over your regular Spino to an Aberration server.

- Preventing people from building within the Ragnarok Puzzle cave, so if you store any structures or creatures down there, make use of this time to relocate them ASAP as once this update goes live on console, that will no longer be possible.

It is important to note that the Turret Update will not go live on console with this update, but instead a future one.

 

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Castoroides

Wild
Castoroides ( ‬Cass-tor-oy-dees.)  is a large, mammalian herbivore that tends to live near water. Unlike other larger beaver species this one retains the chisel-shaped teeth of modern beavers. As is typical for beavers, they build dams as habitats, but the larger creatures on the island have a tendency to trample them. As a result, finding unsullied dams in the wild is quite rare.

Castoroides itself doesn't seem to realize how dangerous the island is. I don't know if it's simply too dumb to notice the dangers, or if it just doesn't care...but Castoroides happily goes about its day playing in the water and gnawing on wood.

ESME: Domesticated
The value of a tamed Castoroides is obvious from its physiology. The creature naturally gathers wood extremely efficiently, far more than most species on the island. It's not the strongest creature, so it can only carry limited amounts, but it is a natural lumberjack!

 

Taming Method     Knockout
Preferred      Kibble (Gallimimus Egg)
Preferred      Food Vegetables
Preferred      Food (P+) Fresh Sugar Plant Primitive Plus Icon.png
Equipment                Castoroides Saddle (Lv 61)
Rider Weaponry       Yes
Can you carry Humans?   No

 

DODO Dex
Tip#1 “Got eaten alive for touching their wood and I respect that

Tip#2 “Do not leave unattended the torpor goes down at a monsterous rate.”

 

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

In-game admin command: EnemyInvisible

e.g. cheat enemyinvisible true

  • This command effectively makes you invisible to wild dinos.
  • Generally used for Event wild dino spawns.
  • Boolean values
    • True: makes you invisible
    • False: makes visible again.

Xbox PVP Etc

TIP TIME!

 

  • ONLY FILL OUT ONE OF THE TIP Sections BELOW FOR EACH EPISODE.
  • You do not have to add anything if you have nothing to add.
  • There can be more than one tip under a section, just not one host with multiple tips.
  • SAVE EXTRA TIPS AND INFO FOR FUTURE SHOWS SO WE WILL NOT RUN OVER OUR TIME LIMIT.

 


*****Alpha Tip*****
Do you have a tip for more experienced players? Share it below:

 

Doc: Batteries are learnt and charged only in aberration, you charge in a powered charge station. They can be used in all electrical devices instead of a generator but drain quite fast, A great use at the moment during pvp is to draw the enemy into a battle while your teammates set up a turret or 2 on high and players only. This allows you to kill the riders fast and leave there dino’s free for you too clean up and take the fight further from your base or closer to there’s. There’s a 30 sec delay in turning on a turret when powered by a battery so be aware. Plus you can use them in keypads, ac’s and fridges if you ever need power without building a generator and foundations and then getting gas.

What is PixArk?

Pix Ark Describes itself on steam as a vast, wild world filled with vicious dinosaurs, magical creatures and endless adventure! To survive in this mysterious land, you must tame creatures both ferocious and cuddly, craft high tech and magical tools, and build your own base out of cubes.
With a robust character creator, an infinite number of voxel based maps and procedurally generated quests, your PixARK adventure will be completely unique. Team up with friends to form a tribe, or play on your own. Spend your time building a towering fortress or go on a quest in a sprawling cavern. Fly on the back of a dragon and smite your enemies with a magic wand, or ride a mighty T-Rex and blast your foes with a rocket launcher. In the world of PixARK, how you play is up to you – as long as you survive!

Felloon

What specs do you need to run it?

LOOT DROP!

Esme: I asked on Social Media:  If you have been Pix Ark, let us know what you think so far!

Tim Barrett@AshTag1658 Loving it! But they could adjust the damage numbers a bit.. I just hit level 50 and still can’t kill any carnivores.

 

Yeah, I’m on a private server with some friends but a lot of the server setting buffs don’t seem to take effect (xp gains, harvesting, etc...) about the only server setting I’ve noticed working is the time of day.. but we haven’t fiddled with Dino damage yet

 

I chalked up the lack of sliders to early access.. and we have a Nitrado server too.. we learned our lesson with Ark and have only played on our own private servers ever since Scorched Earth came out

 

Darkon Vail@DarkonVail
I've enjoyed it so far, would like to see a dedicated server download on Steam though. My biggest complaint is the movement feels horrible. Needs to be closer to minecraft in jumping/moving ability.

Criikette

Hello Explorers!

PixARK released into Early Access last week with a bang, and we’d like to thank everyone for the massive support that we’ve gotten since then. Now that all of our Explorers have been able to get out into the ARK, we feel it’s time for our very first PixARK Community Event! We’ll be having these events regularly, and each event will have different requirements for participation.

For this event, we’re looking for Explorers to show us the most daring adventure they’ve had, with their closest portable friend! Submit a screenshot or GIF of your Explorer in either a dangerous or scenic location with a shoulder tame that is either keeping your company or providing moral support. All submissions should be sent to:

pixark.community@snailgamesusa.com

Please include your *full* server name, the region and the number if you’re on an official server, as well as a link to your Steam profile along with your submission.

Submissions Timeline
This community event will start today, Thursday, 4/5, and go until Friday, 4/13.
Three winners will be chosen by the PixARK Community Team, and one winner will be chosen by the community!
A community vote will be held on Steam Monday, 4/16.
All four winners will be announced on Tuesday, 4/17 on Steam.
Each winner will be provided an additional PixARK Steam Game Key!
We’re really excited to see all of the amazing locations, and daring situations that each Explorer has found themselves in recently. Any additional questions or concerns about the event can be sent to the same submissions email posted above! Good luck Explorers!

-PixARK Community Team

Explorer's Guide: PixARK Creatures #1
MARCH 16
Hello Explorers, and welcome to the Explorer’s Guide to Pixark Creatures #1!
Let’s take a look at some of the creatures you will be facing in the world of PixARK.

Dodo
The Dodo can be found in Novice Prairies and Grasslands. These silly birds don’t offer much in the form of defense or offense. It’s almost as though they were designed for beginner Explorers in mind…


CRIIKETTE

Zombie
Zombies would like nothing more than to feast on Explorer brains. Fortunately, some basic weapons and armor will allow you to handle these foes. However, be warned: they can only be found in the Dark Forest zone, which harbors even more danger than just the undead.


BLUE

Raptor
Move over lions; the Raptor is the king of the jungle in PixARK! Raptors are fast, hard-hitting, and relentless. You had better hope you have a combination of ranged firepower and armor if you want to survive an attack by just one of these predators.

Esme

Explorer’s Guide: PixARK Creatures #2
APRIL 6
Hello Explorers, and welcome to Explorer’s Guide to Pixark Creatures #2!
Today were taking a look at some of the desert creatures you’ll encounter in PixARK

Terror Bird
The Terror Bird is a fast, aggressive creature with a ferocious bite. You can try to run, but chances are you won't get far. The Terror Birds wings may not seem mighty, but it allows this bird of prey to leap longer distances than one might think. This makes the Terror Bird a good tame for scouting if you can capture one.

Luminin

Dung Beetle
Dung beetles are small but deadly. Once they’ve noticed you they will begin to use their circling tactic and then strike. If a Dung Beetle bites you too many times your torpor will increase. If it is raised too high, it will leave you in an unconscious state! Be careful if you fight a Dung Beetle, these nasty bugs will alert nearby beetles causing a swarm before you can react.

Felloon

Emperor Scorpion
Like the Terror Bird, the Emperor Scorpion is also an aggressive creature. They may not have the speed of a Terror Bird, but they are much harder to kill in combat. Watch out for their deadly pinchers and stinger! If hit to many times, you will be poisoned and your torpor will slowly increase which will leave you in an unconscious state.

The desert climate can be a super scorcher, so be sure to stay hydrated out there! Keep an eye out for more Explorers Guide to PixARK articles.

The Crews initial thoughts!

Is it worth the 20$?

 

Felloon: it's definitely worth $20… I'll use the same analogy we always use ; what do you spend to go out to the movie theater?, and on average you will be there for 2 hours ? Well according to steam I only have 86 hours on the game so with some rough calculations you could say that I've only spent about 50 cents for 2 hours of entertainment. I would say that qualifies as “worth” $20…

If I could get away with 50 cents for a movie I would do that more often..

 

Luminin: Minecraft, ARK and Dark n’ Light had a baby, you’ve got the best of all three!... and the worst of all three. I think it is worth the promotional $19.99 but maybe not the full $24.99 yet. From a regular play perspective, it’s pretty good. But from an admin or server owner perspective, it’s kinda a pain that can lead to nightmares. (Felloon: I’ve mentioned a few times in our group that it kind of plays like DnL with Ark elements)

 

Criikette: This game kept me sane this week.  Crazy busy week at work and this simple game was just what I needed.  Definitely.  I can only imagine that they’ll steal more stuff from Minecraft as time goes on.  I can’t wait for stuff akin to redstone circuits.

 

Blue: It’s Fun, I've had a lot of rough learning experiences as time has gone on. I’ve rebuilt three times now, and retamed everything several times due to little accidents. Due to the game mechanics its be super easy to restart unlike normal ark. Definitely worth $20!

 

Goon - Being an early access game, i have to say it was well worth the money, it’s a lot further along than a lot of early access games that I have played. It glitches and things need balancing, but it is a blast to play.

 

Esme:

I agree with Goon, I was pleasantly surprised with how playable the game actually is . I did not think I was going to enjoy the block Versions of the dinos I know and love on Ark, but I do! There are so many new creatures in Pix Ark in addition to some of our favorites that it keeps everything fresh. Definitely worth the $24.99 at this point.

What are your favorite parts of the game so far?

 

Luminin: CRR + Minecraftian elements makes for a ton of fun. It’s very surprising to me to see just how many CRR members have never played Minecraft. In my opinion, Minecraft is to survival games what WoW is to MMO’s.

 

Criikette: Fast tames + big bad dinos means don’t get attached to your friends.  I love the dino structures (dodo pen, phiomia hut, gigantopethicus drawbridge, raptor generator).  It feels weird mining and not having to worry about critters as much though. Best of all: No Creepers.  Worst of all: Damn sauropods.

Blue: mining has been fun, doing the little ruins has been fun, taming is super simple I’ve enjoyed that, and the different options for trapping dinos has been awesome.

 

Felloon: I have never played minecraft, i spend a lot of time mining. My entire base was built underground. Getting used to this part of the game has held my attentions for a few days now, but the pull of what else is out that has overcome me and now I’m out and about looking for all the ruins and different dinos and biomes.

 

Goon - while taming and mining is a nice past time, i have to say that the part i find find most enjoyable is the fact that i can actually dig down or build up the ground, that includes being able to have the water spread as you dig around it, also i like that the dodos cry when you hit them. It is also nice that when you die you keep whatever is on your action bar..

 

Esme:

GAH! I love the customization of our Characters. I love the options for quests in the game. I love that the maps are all different because they are procedurally generated. I love that it is a game I can play on my laptop that it not meant for gaming. I love that there are already decorations and stuff we can add to our homes etc where we are used to having to use mods to get cool stuff. I had never played Minecraft, so I love the mining and building and the water physics and realizing that I will be able to do some pretty fantastic things with building etc. I love that if I want tame something or run from something I can just make a box out of dirt and git it done. I love how some items we can pick up already :)

What Parts of the game do you feel needs to have more TLC or added or removed?

 

Luminin: TOO MANY CHARACTERS WTF?!?!? NOOO. And admin/server commands/settings.

 

Criikette: Ability to move water blocks.  And make “unlimited” water blocks. We were able to get some really interesting farm designs in minecraft that I want to see built here.  Guess it can still be done with taps. Will just need to play around with it.


Water blocks CAN be spawned in, but CAN’T be placed. ~Lum

 

Blue: I agree with Criikette on the water thing it’s super annoying when you go to make clay in a pond or water spot and it gets messed up when you pick the clay up harvest. Dino balance is a big one I’ve lost all my tame’s to literally a single Spirit wolf after it dropped into my base. I’ve also had a lvl 5 sauropod (bronto) destroy a lvl 100 sumthing Spirit wolf which I thought would be cake….

 

Goon - i’d would like to be a little tougher, so squishy in the game, and I like to be able to unclaim dinos

 

Felloon: it feels like when I level up my melee stat, however that translates into the game, is under represented. Now that we have damage numbers up on our server I can see how much larger the critical hits are vs the normal damage on dinos and it feels like the crit chance is higher for wild dinos vs tame.

 

Esme:

The toxic trolling that can be done on PVE is UTTERLY RIDICULOUS.

I HATE THE SOIL MARKING SYSTEM. I want it out of the PVE world. I can see where it would have its place perhaps in PVP, but it is sooo dumb to have it on PVE.

It feels very claustrophobic to me. It is like forcing players to do quests to protect their buildings , and the areas each marker protects is a joke. I have yet to think of why they even need to exist at all. I feel like they could be used for large tribes that have the manpower to keep them fueled to allow them to take over additional area to fit their community, but I feel like it is ridiculous in its current state.

Officials servers are already a lag fest for me in the rally zones.

Brontos Should Not be the new gigas or titanos…..tribe log isnt working…

TIP & TIME!

Each Host can share some tips for new players. Try keeping your section to five minutes for each host.

 

Luminin: In Minecraft you learn a few nono’s that many are learning now in PixArk, such as never dig straight down/up and be wary about what you HEAR while mining. Listen for water, lava MOBS. If you hear a creature walking around, chances are you’re about to break into an underground cavern and could fall to your death.

 

Blue: Building up against Mountains is a pain. If your going to build up against a mountain side make sure your walls aka gates are high enough to block critters from jumping into your base. Try going to the top of the mountains cliff and jumping off to see if you can fly into your base cause guess what if you can do it so can they.

 

Goon -  When running stone pipes, if possible enclose them with foundations walls and ceilings, sauropods (bronto) like to crush them, also watch out for the Crickettes, they do a lot of damage.

 

Felloon: Build your base underground to keep away from sauropod damage. Some creatures will not attack you while your standing on normal dirt vs magic dirt or cursed soil. I have built some 8x8 or 10x10 “save zones” in the magic forests out of dirt.

 

Criikette:

  • Blocking halls to kill schtuff
  • Crafting stations have a “pull from container” radius to them.  It will pull from boxes but not from smelters/m&p. So plan your crafting house accordingly.
  • Use a trike when collecting your crops.  They get much more than you can get, plus crops and seed instead of just crops.  Bonus: Trikes are great at wood collection.
  • Plant trees to have easy access to wood.  Trees have to have 1 square between them when planting them.  However, you can plant seeds between them afterwards to maximize space.
  • When crafting with stone, make sure you use Fine Stone.  It costs 1 stone structure to make 1 fine stone structure, so it’s no more resources.  But it also gives you bonus xp for crafting the Fine Stone.
  • Bows give more torpor per hit than crossbows.

Esme:As a new player, Not all dinos / Creatures are created equal. Phiomias are easy kills like dodos. Low level raptors are no joke. A level 50 phiomia can be killed with an arrow to the head but a raptor will devour you before you get enough arrows into them to kill them.

Story time!

Share a tale that's happened to you and/or the crew in Pix Ark!

Keep entries around five minutes.

 

Criikette: Too many stories. Pe Lum!!  Admin command destruction! (Apparently floors/walls/ceilings are not considered “structures”.  So they cannot be claimed via admin command. However, they also do not get destroyed via admin command.)

 

Blue: So when we started up on Luminins server I decided that I wanted to start off in my own tribe because I wanted to learn the game and leveling and taming. Sometimes when your in  a group and your new to a game unlocking things can lose its magic and you kinda feel like you have nothing to do because your tribe mates have already done it. I’ve had a lot of hard learning experiences due to this choice. My first base was imagine that at the base of the mountain, I had a nice area completely walled off with Beast Gates and thought I was safe so I logged off for the night. When I logged on the next day all my tames that were left out in the “courtyard” were gone and a spirit wolf was walking around. I figured that it had gotten over my walls from a little area next to my base So I added to the wall with some Rock Blocks thinking I was good. The next day i was standing in my courtyard minding my business I’d just tamed 2 trikes and 2 pteranodons a couple phiomas and dodo’s. Next thing I know a spirit wolf and a Gigantopithecus fall into my base and since tame’s are naturally on neutral as soon as I was hit everything went agro, and the Gigantopithecus proceeded to kill every tame I had. That was the point I realized I needed to double up my gates along the cliff to keep wild creatures from dropping by to say hello. I eventually had to start over again after I was attacked by a evil critter called the Criikette.

The latest edition of the Community Crunch!

The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community!

Rideable Moschops Returns!

By popular demand (and some discussion by our gameplay team) the rideable Moschops makes its return! For those who missed out, during the TLC 2 update we encountered an unintended mechanic which allowed the Moschops to be rideable. After receiving feedback from players regarding the creature and its new founded ability, we decided we wanted to make it so, but do it properly! So stay tuned for a rideable Moschops coming soon to an ARK near you! ;)

Attention PC PvE Legacy Survivors! We've made the current Legacy PC PVE

This has been a community request for some time from our player base as some of you have expressed interest in moving on to your own dedicated servers. The snapshot was taken on the 3rd of April 2018 and we're going to see if we can also make console PVE legacy saves available.

Sponsored Mod Program Update & New Wildcard Workshop Tutorials!

Hey everybody! Zen here with your dose of modding news!

I'm excited to announce a new addition to the Sponsored Mod Program this month. The joy of the hunt was always a significant aspect of ARK for me, and as far as I was concerned, taming was as much a part of that experience as the actual battle with a beast. I am delighted to see that someone has taken the mantle of modding that aspect with some significant changes. I am pleased to announce that the Immersive Taming mod will be joining our roster this month!

Using this mod, you will find that taming has been changed from a battle to protect an unconscious creature while you tried to keep it drugged and stocked with food suppositories to the gauntlet of gaining a creatures trust and trying to tame it in a way that imitates life a bit more.


LUMININ
I also have a couple of new entries for the Wildcard Workshop tutorial series today!

Tutorial #2 focuses on trying to get you into the right mindset for programming and how to look at the interaction between data, logic, and the game world. You will find some supplemental information in the thread post for this one.
https://youtu.be/Sbup8LfpQ5A

In tutorial #3 we build our first mod from the minimal files we set up before, into something that will actually work if it were uploaded to the workshop.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7YJh_sRiL4&feature=youtu.be

 

We will also be making some changes to the Mod Tutorial Contest. Going forward these will be more freestyle under much wider topics. For instance, Contest #3 is all about making ridiculous April Fools Day buffs! We'll also start linking all submissions in the contest thread, not just the winner, since they will all be unique

 

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Dino Name: Carnotaurus!

GOON:

Wild
Carnotaurus pressor is a distinctive creature that falls between a medium and large predator. It lives primarily on flat, clear ground, where it can capitalize on its speed. Additionally, it seems to have no qualms about running away from larger predators instead of fighting.

The horns of the Carnotaurus seem to be used more for fighting rivals than actual hunting. This doesn't mean the horns aren't dangerous, though. They can still eviscerate larger prey.

Carnotaurus is one of the smaller and more compact of the large predators. If Tyrannosaurus is the “lion” of the Island, Carnotaurus would certainly be the “cheetah.” The real threat of a Carnotaurus is not being able to escape it once it has spotted you.

Esme

Domesticated
Carnotaurus fills a very specific role. Larger and almost as fast as a Raptor, smaller but much faster than a Rex.

Were it not for the creature's extremely long down-time after sprinting, it might be among the most capably balanced mounts.

 

Taming Method   Knock out

Preferred Kibble Kibble (Ankylo Egg)
Preferred Food   Raw Mutton
Equipment Carno  (Lvl 46)
Unique Costumes Carno Bone Costume
Rider Weaponry?  No
Can not carry Humans

 

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

HarvestResourceItemAmountClassMultipliers

 

  • Added to your Game.ini file
  • Helps keep the server lag down or removes it entirely.
    • High level bred, imprinted dinos that cause server lag while harvesting.
  • Can focus on certain resource types to set them to your liking.

 

e.g.

HarvestResourceItemAmountClassMultipliers=(ClassName="PrimalItemResource_Polymer_Organic_C",Multiplier=40)

Main topic:  Wilektron : What is a game you were excited about before you played it, but were disappointed by once you played?

 

FOE- Brink ! , was sooooooo hyped about this parkour FPS it was fun for like 1hr than it was just a flawed mess

 

Esme: Wildstar

Wildstar was said to be a good contender for a wow killer . It had/has actual player house that was pretty fantastic. The youtube videos leading up to the game were hilarious! They were promising 20 and 40 man raids. Unique pvp battlegrounds etc.

Once in,  we realized it felt very rushed. Content we were promised never came. We started to realize it wasn't even created yet lol. They attunement process you had to grind to get to raid was so grindy, that once someone made it to silver to raid they were to damn tired and fried to even dream turning around to get a guildy through the process. It killed guilds and raid teams super quick. The servers on launch , were ass backwards. They accidentally let in free passes in first over the people who purchased early to get in to the launch a few days before everyone else. It was a nightmare lol Hamster wheel of death.

Now Free to play on Steam.

Scarlet Diaries

Dear Diary,
I've been travelling the Ark for two weeks, and I've been alone except for my trusty iguanodon called Windrunner. That all changed when I met Bobbert. It all started when I was travelling in the swamp. A wild Kapro leapt from the bushes, and dragged me off my dino! I thought I was dead for certain, but then, a survivor ran out from the bushes and killed the Kapro, saving my life! As our eyes met over the corpse, it was love at first sight! To thank him, I invited him to have dinner with me that night, but we liked each other so much that him and his trike called Cornflake have joined me and my iguanodon on our travels! Bobbert's cheery, scattered, gruff nature has me laughing all day! It's nice to have a companion, and possibly a lover, with me to share my adventures!
Yours truly,
Scarlettefury

 

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Dino Name: Carbonemys

From The Dino Dossier

GOON: Carbonemys obibimus is one of the least aggressive creatures on the Island. Were it not for the plethora of predators on the Island, I'm quite certain that it would spend its days basking in the sun, eating, or sleeping. Carbonemys leads a simple, solitary life. Nevertheless, it seems to be one of the most peaceful animals I have yet encountered.

With its slow walking speed, the only things that keep it safe are its surprisingly fast swim speed, and its incredibly thick shell, which can absorb tremendous damage.

 

Esme: Domesticated
Carbonemys' swift swim rate, fairly high strength, superior shell defenses, and lack of real threat makes it an ideal armored mount for many survivors who shy away from violence. It can carry its rider to the ocean's resources at fairly high speed, and is not particularly dangerous to tame.

Taming Method    Knockout
Preferred Kibble  (Pteranodon Egg)
Preferred Food    Vegetables
Preferred Food (P+) Fresh Tea Leaves

Equipment Carbonemys Saddle (Lv 10)
Rider Weaponry?  Yes
Can not carry Humans

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:
Esme: Make sure your Dino's attack settings are set the way you need them to be when heading out with them . If you are going out to take something and taking a dino with you, make sure it isn't on attack my target because it will attack your tame.  You also don't want your Dino's on passive if you're expecting them to protect you. It sux while you're under attack, and you think your dino has your back but it doesn't and you both get chomped on lol

MAIN TOPIC :

 

Esme:

April Fools Day is fast Approaching!

Share Some of your April Fools day pranks that you have pulled off OR ones you think you would love to try!

Some ideas I found that are family friendly:

 

  • Paint a bar of soap with clear nail polish and let it dry. Put the non-sudsing soap in the shower or bath and wait for the questions to begin.
  • Buy a bag of yellow onions and dip them in melted candy to make them look like caramel apples. Offer the family the pungent pranks after dinner. But be sure to have some real sweets ready, too!
  • Swab the inside of the bathtub faucet with blue food gel dye. When your child turns the handle, they'll get a big blue surprise at bath time.
  • Fill your child's usual juice cup with gelatin after dinner and place it in the refrigerator. In the morning when the drink is firm, offer your little one a sip and watch him wonder what happened!
  • Prank both the kids and dad by placing small pieces of clear tape over the sensors on the television and gaming console remotes.
  • Over the sink, poke tiny pinholes into a plastic water bottle using a sewing needle. Gently wipe down the outside and set the bottle on the counter. When someone picks it up, the pressure of their hand will cause a light spray of water to go everywhere!
  • Trick your kids into thinking you knocked your teeth out by placing gummy teeth over your real ones before "accidentally" bumping into something that makes them fall on the floor. You'll freak them out—for a few seconds anyway!

          Cyber Judge: I'm a developer for a decent sized company and last year I wanted to have some fun with the main web application most of the customer facing staff uses, I had to do something that would not prevent employees from servicing our members but something noticeable. I decided to add a small chunk of code that caused the application to open upside down after a few seconds it then had an animation to turn the screen the correct way and pop up a message saying happy April fools day from your IT department.

I decided to give it a try and was enjoying the game and story enough that I purchased the Morrowind Expansion pack that included the base game while it was on sale. ESO did announce the new expansion Summerset (and that is why they did the trial and discounted morwind). I had tried Pre-Ordering Summerset on Fanatical because everywhere (both on ESO website and Fanatical website) said that I’d get base game and Morrowind immediately and then get Summerset in June when it is released.  Long story short, after pre-ordering, I never got a key to get the base game, logged a ticket with Fanatical that told me that I would get everything in June and so I opted for refund and just purchased the Morrowind expansion on sale directly from Steam. I chose not to do the pre-order on steam because it cost CA$45.46 through Fanatical and is CA$53.49 on steam.


I’ve been enjoying watching Critical Role season 1 on Geek and Sundry Youtube page. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-p9lWIhcLQ&list=PL7atuZxmT954bCkC062rKwXTvJtcqFB8i

 

Been really enjoying watching this group of voice actors playing through a DnD campaign. Critical Role is DMed by Matthew Mercer and has a group of 8 other voice actors playing the campaign. I found Geek and Sundry through another DnD campaign Matthew Dmed that was on the DnD twitch channel and that I talked about in August on Rated Extra.

Luminin: ARK: SURVIVAL EVOLVED COMING TO THE NINTENDO SWITCH™!

We're excited to announce today that ARK: Survival Evolved will be stomping its way onto the Nintendo Switch in the Fall of 2018!

ARK: Survival Evolved on Switch includes the complete contents and features of the original game; from the massive and mysterious ARK island to the more than 100 prehistoric- and fantasy-inspired creatures such as the T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, Rock Drake and Reaper. Hundreds of hours of exploring, crafting, survival and combat await players as they go it alone, or group up with thousands of other Survivors to explore the island and solve the mysteries of the ARK.

The Nintendo Switch version of ARK will be developed by our partner studio Abstraction Games (handlers of the PS4 port), and we can't wait for it! The handheld mode provides a fantastic new capability for survivors who want to immerse themselves in the vast worlds of ARK fully! With this new version, Switch players can go directly from hunting and tame while sitting on the couch, to forming online tribes and searching out new conquests when on the bus, waiting in line, or wherever they happen to be.

During the Epic Games’ “State of Unreal” keynote at GDC 2018, we were able to show off an early demo of the game on Switch.

You can check out the full reveal here:

Scarlet Fury Diaries!

Dear Diary,
I finally finished my new base, and have decided to take a break from building. I've hopped on my favourite dino, the iguanodon, and am traversing the lands of Ark. In my travels, I've come across many strange creatures, and decided to document them. Here is the first new creature!
The Goon is a fascinating creature. The Goon is a scavenger, and can be found near places that are inhabited by humans. It's behavior is erratic, so extreme caution must be used if the Goon is encountered in the wild. The only way to tame a Goon is to show it who's boss and knock it out with a club. This can take quite some time, as the Goon has a high resistance to torpor. A tamed Goon is useful, but also mischievous. It has been known to draw blood from tribemates, knockout tribe members, and lead dangerous creatures to bases. Still, the Goon is useful for gathering resources, building bases, and being used as bait for taming other creatures. It is well worth your while to tame the Goon.
Yours truly,
Scarlettefury

Esme: Info from the Dino Dossier! https://ark.gamepedia.com/Brontosaurus

Wild
Among giant creatures I've seen on the Island, Brontosaurus lazarus is larger than any sauropod I've read about. In fact, the dinosaur is so massive that it serenely ignores most other creatures.
I've seen a pack of raptors tear apart small dinosaurs while Brontosaurus continues eating, seemingly oblivious to the hunting pack.

BLUE

Domesticated
Because of how docile it is, the Brontosaurus makes for an ideal pack (not herd) animal. Peaceful tribes use it to carry incredible quantities of resources, while warring tribes use it to mobilize their army. Its size and strength make it one of the unique creatures on the Island that can support a "platform" saddle. Unfortunately, its enormity means that the process of taming a Brontosaurus can take a very long time.

Brontosaurus is not aggressive, but can deal damage to players or dinosaurs by stepping on them if provoked. Another attack that they do is a tail swipe, which, for low to mid-level characters, can be a 1 or 2 hit death. The tail swipe does more damage than the stomping, has a long reach, and will fling you in the direction the swipe traveled. The Brontosaurus also has a large amount of health. If you want to kill one, ranged weapons or high-level hunting dinos are recommended.

Blue: DODODEX #1 Tip Narcotic Making Machine...build a Chemistry bench on your bronto and carry spoiled meat on it. Go berry gathering and get all narco berries. Start crafting for thousands of narcotics!!

Luminin #1 tip: Wear dead ones like a costume!

 

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

 

Last time we spoke about how sometimes as an admin you pay a price and in the last show we had a scenario where you are basically starting over because you had to kill your character.

 

As an admin you can recover quickly with a few choice commands:

 

Reclaim your tribe (Same procedure we covered last show)

 

  1. Make your way back to your base.

    1. I normally just use:

      1. cheat gmsummon "Ptero_Character_BP_C" 250
      2. cheat giveitemnum 131 1 0 0
      3. Gives me a ride back to base then when I arrive I just cheat kill the ptera.
  2. Force yourself into the tribe.
  3. Make yourself tribe founder
  4. Once your certain that you are now the tribe founder, kick the old you! .

 

Ok what about your level, tech engrams, and dino imprints?

 

    • Level up: cheat addexperience 10000 0 1

      • First number is how much experience to add
      • Second number is a boolean value whether or not to “apply as if experice came from tribe.” (just leave it as zero)
      • Third number is a boolean value where 1 = Player only and 0 = share with tribe. (Just leave as 1)
      • Side note: if you are mounted all the experience is passed to your dino…
    • Tech engrams

 

  • cheat unlockengram

 

      • Every engram you want to learn is in parentheses separated by the pipe character ( Vertical Bar | ).
      • I found out after I searched for every engram that there are sites that have a full list of tech engrams. So google is your friend!
  • Dino Imprints
    • Find your favorite imprinted Rex or Dino
    • While looking at the dino use: setbabyage .5
      • The age value has a range of .01 to 1 where 1 is fully grown.
    • Now that your dino is a baby again use: setimprintquality 1
      • The imprint quality is a range from 0 to 1 where 1 = 100% imprint.
    • Now that your dino has 100% imprint you can return it to adulthood by using
      • setbabyage 1

 

Are there any other methods that will not cost so much in-game time?

Yes but you need a second account.

 

Next time I may get into server setup.

 

TIP TIME!

 

  • ONLY FILL OUT ONE OF THE TIP Sections BELOW FOR EACH Host.
  • You do not have to add anything if you have nothing to add.
  • There can be more than one tip under a section, just not one host with multiple tips.
  • SAVE EXTRA TIPS AND INFO FOR FUTURE SHOWS SO WE WILL NOT RUN OVER OUR TIME LIMIT.

 

 

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:

Blue - Raising Breed Dinos

-Torches or other heat sources

-Temperatures

-A/C = Dimetrodon  

*****Alpha Tip*****
Do you have a tip for more experienced players? Share it below:
Kagami via Esme: I was unsure If I should put this is our Punching trees, but Rock Golems Seem awfully Alpha for me so I Thought I would share this tip here as It came from our newest Tribe member Kagami on Prim Plus. On prim plus we do not have the ability to make saddles for Golems yet but there are a few ways you can still ride one. You can use a grappling hook to pull yourself up onto its shoulders and then use the comma button on your keyboard paired with your mouse to take your gollem for a walk. The Comma buttons activates a target on your screen and then you select where you're going to place that target with your mouse then click to activate the location you want it to walk to .

 

*******FoeScience***************

Trying an experiment in the game? Share it here!

FELL: Sorry no update on my ps4 venture, been a little busy and a lot hooked to prim+ however a couple of us on Yogi’s server are working towards boss fights. I’m considering streaming that fight so you all can witness my “all thumbs” skill with a controller!

 

Esme: We think Prim plus has nicer people on it because they have to be patient people to even wait out the load time into the server lol Pillars are not everywhere on the prim plus server, but we recently had to bust some out to keep some douche in check who came from a PVP official server and thought he could start trolling people , so server politics are still a thing on PVE as our last Foescience Experiment proved. Everyone is very friendly on the server for the most part . This is our second week and we already have merged with two tribes and now we have expanded all down the coast from olgas beach to viking bay.

 

*****Damn E Key******
Did you do something full of fail this week? Maybe hit the E key again? Share it here!

Blue - went for a wyvren egg and after getting an egg and escaping I fell to my death because the “e”

    Facebook is preparing to take on Amazon's Twitch livestreaming platform with new additions announced today at the Game Developer's Conference. Players and streamers will be able to directly livestream from PC to Facebook and viewers will be able to score some in-game rewards just for watching.

    The livestreaming API from Facebook "makes it easier than ever for developers to add Facebook streaming functionality to their PC games. In a matter of seconds, players can now livestream directly from the game client to a Facebook surface without any hardware or third party software required." The API is already out for PC and will be out for mobile developers in the coming weeks.

Name: Criikette

Input: Short time for Ark Park. Shout out to Luminin for gifting the game to us fellow VR bros.  Only got through the tutorial. Read some reviews, people complained that it was teleporter movement instead of locomotion.  I haven’t played enough VR to really have an opinion yet on the movement style, so I can’t complain too much yet. Neat feature in the museum is that you can pick up the holographic dinos and they sort of squeal and wiggle around.  Then you toss them at either the screen to bring up infographics about them, or in another area you toss them and they become full sized. There is a shooter game mechanic similar to Island 359. There is crafting but all I’ve done so far is scanned a mesopithecus for some gene data, whacked a tree w/ a pickaxe for wood (shouldn’t it have been a hatchet), and then used some gloves to collect fiber.  This allowed me to make my pistol for the shooter game. There is some type of Export Dino function in Ark that is supposed to work w/ Ark Park, but I don’t know how/what it does yet.

Been spending some time in Subnautica. You could make some comparisons to Ark, with it being a survival game, but what stands out to me is how the game mechanics flow out of the setting, and how polished the game is, overall. (Although if you have a habitat that is partially out of the water, the effect of the surface of the water shows inside the habitat.) Without spoiling too much, what I mean about the mechanics fitting the setting is this: Your ship has crash landed on a planet that is mostly covered in water, and parts of the wreckage are spread out all over the place. You have a data pad that has information on a few basic things you can build, information on how to survive, etc, and a scanner (I forget if you start with it or have to build it). In the wreckage are parts of tools and items that were on the ship, and if you scan enough different parts, you can build that item. I just think that’s a neat way to progress your character in a survival game. (More possible blahblahblah that I’m not writing down.)

Name: Cyberjudge

Input: Final Fantasy 15, Currently playing the demo which is the whole first chapter. The only other final fantasy game I've played is Final fantasy 10. As with everything I seem to play now I'm not to far into the game yet but 15 seems to be just like 10 was where you have a long cut scene, then you go do a bunch of things before the next cut scene. The graphics are fantastic and gorgeous and the game play is fun. One thing I'm struggling with that is different from 10 is the real time combat vs turn based combat found in 10. With the real time combat there is a lot more you can do like parry, team moves etc but I'm struggling to remember the controls to do everything. In 10 it was more of select what you want to do this turn and see what happens, no blocking at the right time or anything like that. All in all I'm enjoying the story and game play, I'm going to see if I get to end of demo to determine if it's a buy now, buy on sale, or pass.

 

I've been thinking of getting back into an MMO but I don't want to pay a monthly fee. I've been debating returning to star wars the old republic (which I did play before it went free and have a lifetime subscription to it) I've also started to look at Black Desert Online (which somebody mentioned in discord a couple of weeks ago) is an MMO that you pay to purchase but no ongoing monthly fees. The other MMO I've thought of is Elder Scrolls online which is now buy once play forever. I took advantage of a 7 day trial of BDO (Black Desert Online) and was not enjoying it at all. Maybe I didn’t give it enough of a chance but characters are gender locked and the voices in game to me were a little annoying. I’m thinking this one will be a pass but I'd love to hear what you all think about any of these MMOs. Also those listening to the podcast can let me know on discord or tweet me @cjoptimus.

 

Games we have talked about :  Runescape EOS DC Universe

 

Future games I’m keeping my eye on is Camelot Unchained. Camelot unchained is being developed by one of the guys that designed the very first MMO I ever played, Dark Age of Camelot. Camelot Unchained appears to take some of the ideas from DAOC but watching videos on the game, it seems to be a totally different game. Camelot Unchained will consist of 3 Realms and be mostly PVP focussed with little PVE.

  • Downloaded Sims Mobile . I like it as a time wasting game on this platform because I could never get into the real game on PC. It always felt boring. My sister loved it, but I liked Age of empires a lot more growing up. In this Mobile version you can connect it to facebook to find more people on there, you can give out your friend key and add friends and make friends in game with the other people walking around. You level up, can unlock a lot of stuff in the game. I have not noticed a big cash grab yet. Originally I thought it would be a log in delegate your character to do stuff then you have to wait on them but when you send them to work you can log out or actually do the work with them etc, so I have not seen anything that halts my game play yet.
  • Chucklefish's mysterious magic school RPG officially named Witchbrook
  • That’s a comparison Chucklefish CEO Finn Brice has made when talking about the developer’s new magic school RPG. Previously known as Project Spellbound, Brice confirmed on Twitter, via PC Gamer, the game’s official name is Witchbrook. It has a 2D aesthetic like Stardew Valley and is built upon the idea that of course we all want to go to magic school.

Name: Johnny Wrench

Input: 505 Games and Other Side Entertainment are remaking Ultima Underworld in a new game coming this year called Underworld Ascendant. Many of the original UW programmers and developers are working on this. UW paved the way for games like System Shock, Dishonored, Deus Ex, and other open-ended immersive sims over 25 years ago.

 

It's billed as a “return” to the Stygian Abyss rather than a reboot. Paul Neurath,  the original designer of UW, launched a kickstarter with other members of the original team. They raised over $160k in the first few hours.

ARK: SURVIVAL EVOLVED – THE MOBILE EXPERIENCE
Dive into the ultimate mobile dino-adventure with ARK: Survival Evolved! A massive game world combines with 80+ unique dinosaurs and primal creatures for you to capture and tame – making for a survival experience bar-none. Meet up with other players and friends in this Jurassic-era world, to form tribes and work together to build colonies of survivors.

Based on the genre-defining adventure from PC and console, ARK: Survival Evolved challenges you to survive and thrive on a mysterious island, where you start out alone and unarmed. Gather resources and craft tools to build shelter and hunt. Expand your domain while capturing and taming dinosaurs to do your bidding. Make new friends online, form tribes, and build mighty structures to defend against man and mega-predators alike!

Features of ARK: Survival Evolved include:
– 80+ Dinosaurs: Use cunning strategy and tactics to tame, train, ride and breed the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground.
– Discover: Explore a massive living and breathing prehistoric landscape as you find the means to survive, thrive, and escape on the Ark.
– Craft and Build: Using any means necessary to survive, craft weapons, clothes, and items, and build shelters, villages, or even large cities.

– Join a Tribe: The ‘Tribe’ system encourages cooperation, by supporting dynamic parties to share resources, XP, and re-spawn points.

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Dino Name:

From the Dino Dossier:

GOON: In the wild: Beelzebufo palucocus is the largest frog I've ever seen. Almost impossibly large, it can actually fit a fully-grown human adult on its back, though just barely. This is a dangerous prospect, though, as secretions from Beelzebufo's skin and saliva have a narcotic effect on most creatures.

Not surprisingly, Beelzebufo is adept at killing insects. Its lengthy tongue allows it to quickly grab prey from afar, killing most insects near instantly and quickly digesting them. It even combines the narcotic chemicals in its mouth with the insects' chitin to create a specialized sticky substance.

Esme: Domesticated
Tamed Beelzebufo make for strange mounts. Strange mounts for strange people. Many tribes don't believe there's any reason to ride them, but some enjoy the ability to take large vertical hops up huge walls and cliffs. Regardless of how it is ridden, Beelzebufo is also employed for its ability to quickly cull insects, and convert them into always-useful cementing paste.

GOON:

Taming Method: Knockout
Preferred Kibble: Kibble made with the (Pulmonoscorpius Egg)
Preferred Food:   Raw Mutton
Equipment: Beelzebufo Saddle (Lv 40)
Rider Weaponry?  Yes
Can you Carry humans? No

Esme:DodoDex Tip :

This is the most OVERPOWERED animal in ark to get. If you see a LvL 100 don't miss out on taming it. I have taken out carnos and spinos with it with ease and it its great for getting around and knocking things out. GET ONE AS SOON AS YOU CAN!!!! PS. Great swimmer .

Goon:DODODex Tip: A great early tame fast swimming capable of jumping onto boats and bases for raids and can ko most players in a few attacks can be used to explore the island in a short time and is capable of evading most predators in two or jumps

 

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

Last time I spoke about Admin Traits we all appreciate this time I wanted to talk about Server admins vs game master type admins and run through a rather tough scenario.

 

  1. Server Admin(s) have access to the server settings.

    1. Usually the server owner
    2. Can change how the server functions which effects the progression of the players on the server; they can add, remove and tweak mod and server settings.
  2. Game Master Admins have access to admin commands that can be executed on the server.
    1. We touched in this last time as well but it's important to have people you trust. Look for the traits we highlighted on last week's show.
    2. These are the folks that are serving the community when game glitches are preventing players from progressing in some way...
  3. Admins can recover quickly and should be aware that they may have to utilize the admin commands to do so..
  4. Like any skill performing the functions of an admin are likely to always be a learning experience for as long as you are an admin

 

Potential problem:

 

Glitch X caused someone to get booted from their tribe and they no longer have access to their base or their Dino's. I'm not certain how well this would work if a single tribe character has left  their tribe but it seem like it should work.

 

Depending on how many Dino's and how Large (in terms of structure quantity) their loss there are a couple of things you can do.

 

Larger vs small basses are subjective (use your own judgement)

 

For small basses (1 building)/dino collections (1 to 6?).

  1. just claim everything as your own then disassemble their base a piece at a time and give them back the building components, then unclaim the Dinos so that they may reclaim them as their own.

 

For large bases and dino collections

 

  1. this gets complicated and can very easily come with a price for the admin.
    1. Remember you serve the community!?

 

  1. If you are an admin

    1. Use: showmyadminmanager (in-game admin UI)
    2. CONNECTED PLAYERS window (center top): use on yourself (click your character name)
    3. CHEAT MANAGER window (right top): navigate to “ForcePlayerToJoinTribe PlayerId[int64]” then click
      1. You are required to be looking at a wall, with your character, or anything that belongs to this tribe.
    4. Copy player id on the next prompt
    5. Execute.
    1. CHEAT MANAGER window (right top): navigate to “MakeTribeFounder”
    2. Copy player id on the next prompt
    3. Execute.
    1. Kill your character.
    2. Create a new character.
    3. Make your way back to the base that was lost.
    4. Force yourself into the tribe.
    5. Make yourself tribe founder
    6. Once your certain that you are now the tribe founder, kick the old tribe founder .
    7. Invite the problem character back into their tribe.
    8. Promote them to tribe founder and leave the tribe.

 

The price you paid as an admin:

  1. Your character which was on that server was “killed”.
  2. You lost your progress.
    1. Engrams earned for bosses killed.
  3. Since your character was killed you are no longer in your tribe.

 

Next show I'll talk about how to recover your losses from performing this function as an admin.

SITY: I want to see a powerpoint next week!  I want a flow chart :) Just kidding unless you can  do it...lol

 

MAIN TOPIC:

 

  • CRIIKETTE:
  • Can I intro into this? Scream and yell YES LOL -esme :) it was youre ...your idea :)
  • What's your thoughts on all the shade Wild Card gets on all of Their forums and social media? Valid? Too much? Just trolls being trolls? Productive? Not productive? Have your thoughts shared on the show!

    SITY: I don't read that crap...Don't we have enough negativity on all formats social medias people, come on its a fricking game.!!!

    Esme:
    I'm in the middle with shade being tossed at Wild Card. I'm in the middle because I'm big on the delivery of shade.
    Honest well thought out feedback should be valued. Customers should have a professional way to report genuine concerns and get timely feedback. I'm not a fan of the Thirsty Internet trolls whos mommies didn't hug them enough as children so now everyone in the real world has to be wither preveriable punching “we need titty juice in the show notes” bag. I am a fan of there is a time and a place for everything but if customers are not given the time or the place then can we really blame the torch carriers? I feel like when the game was officially released they can not lean on the “its in early release anymore. <ore people and more avenues should be given to handle customer complaints. As with any avenue on the internet you will have to wade through mountains of not so delicious brown stuff to find the gems of honest feedback and objections. One of my favorite people I follow on twitter

    Esme Twitter Feedback:
    Sean D Knight@SeanDKnight
    It is well-deserved. When a developer is unable to deal with the biggest issue of Character transfer loss properly, the backlash is justifiable. They do not respect their customers' time because they will not replace tek engrams or take the time to regain imprinted dinos.
    The fact that there isn't even a system in place to quickly, and properly, resolve the issue of character loss is the single biggest black mark on their reputation. Their inability to deal with exploiters, hackers, and dupers on a regular or equal basis is the 2nd biggest problem

    Crr Discord BigBlueB - Mostly trolls being trolls. If you read any of the comments when they post about updates the things people are complaining about are for the most part answered in the post if the dumb assess would just read it.

    Crr Discord Felloon - Today at 7:40 PM
    One thing i learned about gaming and official forums is, its probably not the very best place to learn anything but hate.. I literally have to be in the proper state of mind to read through the forums, wade through all the garbage to find anything of value. So my personal general rule of thumb is stay off the official forums.

  • Sity here here!
    Crikette Crr Discord TuxedoBadger - Today at 8:54 PM
    I mean, if wildcard is gonna balance both pve and pvp the exact same way, they deserve all the hate they get for it lol
    They have taken a ton of shortcuts over the development of Ark, and a lot of the community wanted them to do better. Unfortunately, Ark kind of seems like an experiment that got a lot bigger than wildcard expected rather than a new franchise.
    And if people wanna call it whining, well they aren't wrong haha
    I really agree with you Fel. I've stopped going to Reddit when I start playing a new game because I don't want to go from having fun to seeing nothing but flaws and scummy Dev practices.

*****FOESCIENCE*****

FELLOON: PC to PS4

Playing on PS4 really reminds me of way back when I join CRR and we only had the island server and could only get into the Center by special invite.

Back then we really didn't have a lot of mods that i can remember, we were using crystal torches, Corrected structures and a few other minor things..

But the rates were pretty conservative I don't remember the exact settings but a lot of the timers and rates were not far from official compared to what we run now...

 

It's incredible how much i’ve come accustomed to being able to just pick a misplaced wall back up, i feel like im re-learning all the best practices of not having access to mods.

I’m a little bothered by the command wheels, unless i'm missing something it drives me a little nutty when i select a command on a wheel and my character moves a little. It’s not a big deal.. but it still has some effect on my picky nature to not move when I issue a command. Unless of course i want to move.

I wouldnt say im not enjoying the game play on console, just that it's a bit of a hurdle to overcome the controls when all you have ever done is game on a PC, and i certainly wouldn't say you shouldn't play Ark on Console so far I haven't really seen any big differences between PC and console, other than the controls. (aiming your weapon on console makes me feel like i have brain damage or something.. wow)

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:
Goon - If you eat a rare flower, you will agro every dino nearby to come give you a lick, you can use this if you are trying to tame things that tend to run away. Get on a rock and eat a flower and shoot it while it tries to be upclose and personal.

Esme : I don't see why not :)

 

Blue- Mind if I expand on this?

 

Criikette: Primitive Plus stuff and things.  I like Prim+, but I don’t like official rates.  And I miss some of my QoL stuff like transfer guns and demo guns.  Also, wish I could have the reusable grapple and/or the glider and climbing picks.  I really like the stuff that they’ve added, like all the crops. But I think they definitely need to finish up the crop taming like it was supposed to be.  It’s great to have “prime” for herbis, as long as you plan ahead and get the right kind of crop for them.

*****Taming Pen*****

 

  • Cover info on one creature on the island.

Name:Gigabyte

Input:

So i recently trained into stealth bombers, a type of ship in eve designed to fire torpedoes, something normally reserved for battleships, i dove into wormhole space, hoping to find some miners to kill, but after one failed attempt i managed to escape into null sec, deep deep inside Brave collective territory, one of the bigger powers in eves null sec alliances, after finding a juicy battleship just waiting to have my torpedos rammed into it, i had to pull out, he was repairing faster then i could damage him, so i bolted, almost getting caught by two super carriers and a dreadnought, along with several small frigates designed to tear my small bomber to shreds, eventually I made it home, after about 50 jumps through a very angry brave collective fleet to finally reach safety.

 

Name: Esme

Input: Been playing Way too much Ark every night. Going to bed way too late because we are having fun as a tribe on Ark Prim Plus Official Servers.  I spent last weekend Playing Warcraft with Lumin, Big Blue and Sity and Goon. Goon, Blue and I rocked out free accounts and Luminin and Sity have a sub. It was fun and it is always cool to go back to my gaming roots with friends. My goal is to level one of each class to level twenty and see which I like the best since I have only played  World of Warcraft Starter Edition & Limitations

  • Looking forward to the new Roseanne show
  • Chucklefish, the developer behind Starbound and publisher of Stardew Valley, is taking some inspiration from the latter for one of its next games. Aside from the Advance Wars-inspired game it's working on, the publisher-studio told us in January that it's creating "an RPG/Sim set in a magic school, something like Stardew Valley meets Harry Potter."
  • Today, Chuckefish CEO Finn Brice tweeted a peek at the game, stating that they've "learned a lot of lessons from working with Stardew."
  • SDV still in testing, no news yet. Thought this sneak peak might tide you over. We've learned a lot of lessons from working with Stardew.

Name: Foe

Input: Been rocking out monster Hunter world love the game , I don't feel compelled to play non stop but that's what I like about it . Been playing star wars destiny card game went to a regional tournament ! , running D&D for our CRR peeps has been a blast so far , and warhammer underworld Shadespire a fantastic small skirmish tabletop game by games workshop

 

Name: Criikette

Input:

Tried out the Vive a little bit.  First off, I’m a bit miffed as nVidia seems to be having some issues with drivers.  When I first restart my computer, it seems that I can run the Vive once. But then it stops working and it will display for about 10 seconds before going black.  Looking up on the web, it seems that I need to run an older version of the nVidia drivers (version 388.71). What this means however is that I can’t run nVidia Freestyle during Ark, which annoys me.  Hopefully nVidia fixes it soon. When I did get it working, I put a little bit of time into Island 359, the dino shooter/survival game. I started off by trying it in Survival mode and did not get too far.  I found the first compound to collect items and got a small collection of things. Found a crafting station, but couldn’t figure out how to craft (I may just need more items to get recipes completed). Found an axe, but couldn’t figure out what to do with it.  It didn’t seem to work as a melee weapon versus Compys or as a tool to chop trees. I tried to look up information about crafting and such, but there doesn’t seem to be much out there on how to play it. I did see people mention that your character is the same throughout all modes (Survival, Arcade and umm, the other one).  And that people recommended to start with the non-survival modes first. So the next time that I played, I went to the Arcade mode. It is essentially just a shooter where you are stuck in one place and dinos will spawn from any side of you in waves. In the waves that I was able to get through, I fought compys, raptors and allosaurs.  It earned me experience and credits to increase my effectiveness.

After talking with Luminin, I tried out Osiris: New Dawn.  Got to put a couple hours in and it seems decent so far.  Survival game where you crash land on an alien planet. Haven’t gotten too far, but you do have to make some of the materials through mixing elements (e.g. Hydrogen + Oxygen to make H2O for water).  I’ll have to put more time into it, but it looks like it could have some potential. One neat feature that could be cool for multiplayer is that you can choose a class that starts off with more engram points in one tree versus others.  The way that you earn experience is through the activities for the 3 types (science, engineering, and combat). Science is through bio type, engineering is through structures.

Last call!

Aberration Item Transfers & Fertilized Eggs (Official Servers)
In a PC Patch earlier today, item transfers were enabled on Aberration. This had been a topic of discussion for the community and the development team for quite some time. We had come to the conclusion that item transfers onto Aberration will be permitted on our Official Network. One of our team goals for this year has been working on improvements to our deployment pipelines to ensure things run smoother going forward. Unfortunately, our enthusiasm got the best of us and this change accidentally slipped through the cracks too soon. We apologize for that. Additionally, an unintended mechanic existed which allowed players to bring over fertilized eggs which were not native to the Aberration map. We have redeployed a change which will prevent this in the future by automatically deleting any non-native fertilized eggs which are brought over, as well as destroy any non-native creatures/fertilized eggs that currently exist on Aberration. We understand that this news will come as a disappointment to some, but know that we examined all available options and ultimately decided that this would be the best step to take. Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience or loss suffered from this change.

To be clear, any fertilized eggs which are not native to Aberration will be deleted upon transfer. So please do not attempt to transfer your non-native fertilized eggs to Aberration and the item transferring will remain active.

We will be redeploying our Official PC Servers with version 278.66 which will have these changes. Our scheduled deployment is set for 15 minutes from now, at 20:40 EST (03/07).

Zen Rowe will be joining the Wild Card Ark  Community Team as the Mod Community Manager! Here's what he had to say:

Hello, Everyone!

Allow me to introduce myself, My name is Josh, but some of you may know me as Zen Rowe. I have been a part of the modding community for over two years now and have been heavily involved with the discord especially. I had the pleasure of helping new people in the community learn how to use the ARK Dev Kit and watched them build out their ideas for mods, just as some did for me when I started out. For the last several months I have been sponsored for one of my projects, ArkFrame, which focused on enhancing the mods made by others and supporting interaction between mods.

Today, I am excited to become your new Mod Community Manager. My objective is to bring more consistent communication with the community and help mod authors build the quality of their projects even further. I will also be leading the sponsored modding team and be providing support for their projects.

We already have some changes planned for the mod community that will be coming soon. Every other week, as part of the community crunch, I will be doing mod spotlights and giving tips, tutorials, and best practices. We are also going to start hosting a Mod Tutorial Contest every other week. As a community, I believe we can embolden and encourage each other to make ARK even better, and I will be an active presence in the multiple areas of the modding community (UE4 forums, Discord, Steam forums). I look forward to working with you all and for our first bit of exciting news, let's begin with the Modding Tutorial Contest!

The goal of this contest is to encourage mod authors to share knowledge and increase the skill level and understanding of mod authors that are new or trying to acquire new skills.

Will:

The Triceratops, one of our oldest friends and earliest creatures implemented into the game will be receiving both a gameplay update and visual update including facial changes plus a reskin. Generally, in terms of gameplay, we felt that the Trike was in a relatively good place in regards to how much benefit in provided vs how difficult it was to obtain. As an early game herbivore, we didn't want to do a complete redesign however it was clear to us that there were some very obvious changes we needed to make.

First of all, the Triceratops will receive the ability to perform a charge and ram attack! It has a short-wind up time to notify that the trike is preparing to charge, the attack will build speed and damage during the windup, which then transfers to increased damage and ends in a ram attack which will knock targets back and can leave them stunned for a short period of time.

Additionally, its herding instincts will be improved, resulting in two changes. A 'Rivalry Buff' which will be applied to all nearby ally Triceratops when in range of large therapods and carnivores that will increase their stats/dmg akin to Mate Boost. It will also increase the wild Triceratops' aggro notify range by twice so that other Trikes are more likely to come to its aid.

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

GOON Dino Name:Basilosaurus

How to Tame:

Passive
Preferred Kibble: Kibble (Therizino Egg)
Preferred Food Raw Mutton
Equipment: Basilosaurus Saddle.png Basilosaurus Saddle (Lv 60)

 

Esme : Unlike many other huge marine animals, the Basilosaurus is not aggressive and tolerates survivors and other animals unless attacked. When taming however, beware; when it eats it creates a cloud of red around its mouth (presumably blood) which will attract other animals near it, including aggressive Megalodon and Mantas. https://ark.gamepedia.com/Basilosaurus

Info Form the Dino Dossier:


GOON

Wild
One of the stranger creatures in the waters surrounding the Island is Basilosaurus solatiumfecit (sol-A-she-um-fee-sit?, felatio-she-sits). It's a powerful swimmer which has adapted to the shallows so remarkably well that it rapidly recovers from injuries when near the water's surface. Conversely, it's vulnerable to deep water pressure, which slowly causes it harm.

Basilosaurus is usually closely followed by other predatory creatures, as its eating habits leave plenty of scraps for scavengers to consume. It is a gentle creature towards humans and happily laps up food directly from them. However, the creatures that trail the "Basi" tend to become dangerously enraged whenever this occurs, as it leaves no leftovers for them.

ESME

Domesticated
Despite the hassle of engaging with its ornery followers, many tribes still attempt to tame the Basilosaurus, as its mammalian, warm-blooded circulation provides a rider with perfect comfort from both heat and cold. Being apprehensive in nature, Basilosaurus is equipped with a defense mechanism that prevents it from being stunned or shocked. Alternatively, Basilosaurus is hunted (perhaps too vigorously) for its special blubber, which can be efficiently refined into gasoline!

(This is notes from Criikette, but you guys are welcome to say them.  Unless you want me to) Being a passive tame, the feeding seems sort of weird.  If you check sites like Dododex, it will say that the frequency of feeding is something like every 8 seconds.  This is true to a point. That point being that after the first feeding, he will not eat again for somewhere around 10-15 minutes (in my experience).  His food level will drop somewhere like 3000 points before he takes a second bite. However, once he starts eating again, THEN it will be about every 8 seconds that you can feed him.  As with all passive tames, if the dino is damaged, it will reset their tame bar. So be extra careful of the blood bath caused by his feeding since if something attacks you and accidentally hits him, it will reset your taming.

 

Extra Info:

Esme

Drops Hide,Oil,Raw Prime Meat,Basilosaurus Blubber (needed for activating some of the boss fights)

 

GOON: Dodo Dex User #1 Tip: Good for farming bio toxin, as it can attack Cnidaria without being stunned or knocking off the rider. Takes damage when it goes too deep, though surfacing rapidly heals it.

Esme DoDoDex  User Tip #2 : Ignore posts about taming bar going down, you need to tame it using only the food you give it from the start, if you change the type of food you give it, it then resets the taming bar

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:

Last time I spoke about What it means to be and admin this time I wanted to share a short list of:

  1. Admin Traits we all appreciate
    1. Easier to deal with frustrated players.
    2. Don't get involved in the “server politics”
    1. Makes you approachable.
    1. People need to stay busy or they get bored.
    1. Life and get in the way - here at CRR we are almost entirely all working adults with families.
    1. The only way you understand quirks in the game/map/mod loadout.
    1. Mild mannered.
    2. Fairly social.
    3. Don't be too generous..
    4. “Quick” response to issues.
    5. Plays through the game.

TIP TIME!

 

  • ONLY FILL OUT ONE OF THE TIP Sections BELOW FOR EACH EPISODE.
  • You do not have to add anything if you have nothing to add.

  • SAVE EXTRA TIPS AND INFO FOR FUTURE SHOWS SO WE WILL NOT RUN OVER OUR TIME LIMIT.

 

 

**********Info Surfing****

Did you find an article, tweet, forum post you want to share and discuss? Share it here!

 

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:
Criikette: Always carry at least 1 bola on you.  There is a large selection of dinos that can be bola’ed to include spiders, dilos, sabers, direwolf, scorpions, raptors, terror birds, pegos.  These are just some of the aggressive creatures that your life can be saved by having a bola. It is also really nice for gathering early hide/meat from parasaurs and phiomias.


*****Alpha Tip*****
Do you have a tip for more experienced players? Share it below:
SITY: Aberration tip, was going to do this last week but, anyway, when you are ready to travel DEEP into the area make sure you have your Hazmat suit and take any of the glow light animals, Bulbdogs, Glowtails, etc (pour the light emit in stats and then area of light for best results).they will keep the nameless from rising and attacking you.  Once you get a rockdrake egg hang on to your hat cuz its going to be a race to safety. If your going for Red Crystals its bit safer but still need both of those items.

Criikette:  Be careful as pressing the Reload key (default R) while riding a dino will toss a shoulder pet off.

*****Damn E Key******
Did you do something full of fail this week? Maybe hit the E key again? Share it here!

Goon : While in Aberration, I have fallen in love with the glider, it’s a blast to go up high and jump into the abyss, and glide around looking at all the cool areas, the  one day i logged in and was doing some stuff and jumped off the cliff to the area below for some mats. Well when i jumped i remembered that when i logged out i took all my gear off, and my glider was in my storage unit at the base, so that day i got to put another implant in my special death box, which seems to be filling up.

*******Foe-science*******

Esme: Some of us have banded together to do our first “Foescience” of the season and have set up shop on the Ragnarok Prim Plus Official Server!

  • So far I’m reminded:
    • You have the taming trade offs if you get a dino down you can pass it to your tribe mate to finish the job if they are logging in .
    • Helping to gather resources for projects.
    • Sending a tribe mate back to fetch stuff you need at camp
    • The shenanigans that ensue any time you leave your base or in our instance walk out of the hut lol
    • Of the LONG LOAD TIME
    • The Time OUt Errors loading into it.
    • What we love about doing official together! The camaraderie that we have and build as a tribe as we work together to farm, tame, craft and delegate engrams.  Many ask us why are we even wasting out time playing on official and I have to remind them that as Ark Podcast hosts we do this to stay mindful of what the base game is like without all of the bells and whistles we are spoiled with due to our access to mods.
    • Criikette and I were agreeing that one that we really pull away from the experience is being reminded of how things are really done and not the fairytale versions. Like mating dinos on official is the real way and on unofficial you can download a hitching post and put your dinos on wander and bam its done lol
    • I am reminded by this experience that we are playing the game as its most likely meant to be played and that is as a tribe. It's fun for us to rally the troops and adventure together. Sometimes when we play on our comfy unofficials we get every isolated because we are not forced to worked together where official works the best when you work together. We tend to miss out on all of the stuff we love to see in the Ark Cinematics.

I still think there needs to be a gap tightening though on the times of stuff like mating etc. We get the kibble options for tames and that's cool, but dear god, I think Wild Card still needs to do some Quality of Life TLC after they knock out their Dino TLC to make some stuff in the game more accessible and less of a grind. Which is why I will probably always have one Ark Foot in official and One in Unofficial because I like them both for different reasons .

 

Felloon: taking a trip down the PS4 path

 

 

  • Although my first video game played was on a console (70’s) and I purchased them through the years for my kids I'm a noob.
  • This is a point of view from someone who is new.
  • My two points of interest
  • Draw some parallels between PC and PS4.
  • Access to games not immediately available to PC.
  • Monster Hunter World tops charts on downloads in February for PS4.

 

*****LAST CALL*****

Did you have something that you forgot to mention during the show? Say it now or wait a week!
SITY: Food for thought...ARK ever going to combine all the maps?  Make an in game flight path somehow to transpire into the different maps.  Of course Aberration would be a tunnel.

KEEP ENTRIES Small PLEASE. Remember we are an hour show, and weekly so we don't have time to run through 907 games each episode :)

Name: Cyberjudge

Input: Started streaming Pillars of Eternity. I’m trying to stream every second I play the game. The game is very similar to the classic D&D games like Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. The game is developed by Obsidian ENtertainment and published by Paradox Interactive. I’m still very early on in the game but am really enjoying it. I’m playing an elf ranger with a wolf companion. I’m streaming on Mixer at mixer.com/cyberjudge and don’t really have a streaming schedule. I’m also far from a quality streamer, as evident by my first 2 streams last weekend.

 

“Pillars of Eternity is a role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Paradox Interactive. It was released for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux on March 26, 2015. The game is a spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series, along with Planescape: Torment. Obsidian started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for it in September 2012. The campaign raised over US$4 million, which was the highest funded video game at the time. The game uses the Unity engine.” (wikipedia)

 

If there is time I’d like to discuss the Nvidia Gforce Now which is essentially a way for gamers to play some of the high end games without needing a high end PC. It essentially streams the game from on of NVidia’s high powered machines to your screen and takes your keyboard and mouse inputs. You have to own the games already to stream them from Gforce now and they only support specific games. For example Ark and PUBG were supported games on my list but Dark and Light was not. Also with Ark, it had to download the mods every time I loaded in.

Name: Criikette

Input: Diablo III started Season XIII last week.  I haven’t been following most of the stuff, but I think it’s the second season of the Necromancer.  I decided to go with Monk again this season.  Witch Doctor has still overall been my favorite class in Diablo III, my mousepad even says so.

 

Necromancer was my all-time favorite for Diablo II, it just came too late I think for Diablo III.  I may go back and play it again, but we’ll see.  If anyone wants to join me in Seasonal, let me know.  At a minimum, I could power level your character up.

 

Also, just got my HTC Vive this week.  It’s set up but I haven’t had a chance to do much with it yet.  I have Subnautica that is VR ready and it came with Fallout 4.  I plan to put some time into it this weekend, so will have more to mention in the coming weeks.

Island 359 is an Early Access (in development) Virtual Reality action survival game for the HTC Vive. Players will use the guns, melee weapons, upgrades, explosives, and other tools found on the island to survive for as long as they can against hoards of dinosaurs, as they explore the increasingly dangerous island! You're a mercenary, and the money's no good to you if you're dead, so you're going to need to get back to the chopper for an extraction if you want bragging rights and a fat bank account.

You step off the chopper and into the sweltering heat of the jungle, grab your gear from the old loot drop, and head off in search of fame, fortune, and prehistoric beasts. Nobody knows exactly why dinosaurs have shown up on this remote jungle island, but you know you can take them out. You've been hired as a mercenary to kill as many of these things as possible, and the good news is the checks have all cleared.

  • Pix Ark by Snail Games http://store.steampowered.com/app/593600/PixARK/ is coming out on steam this month!

    • Welcome to PixARK, a vast, wild world filled with vicious dinosaurs, magical creatures and endless adventure! To survive in this mysterious land, you must tame creatures both ferocious and cuddly, craft high tech and magical tools, and build your own base out of cubes.
    • With a robust character creator, an infinite number of voxel based maps and procedurally generated quests, your PixARK adventure will be completely unique. Team up with friends to form a tribe, or play on your own. Spend your time building a towering fortress or go on a quest in a sprawling cavern. Fly on the back of a dragon and smite your enemies with a magic wand, or ride a mighty T-Rex and blast your foes with a rocket launcher. In the world of PixARK, how you play is up to you – as long as you survive!
    • Pix Ark Info from an Interview between Player One and : Snail Games Executive Producer Peter : Kanghttp://www.player.one/pixark-producer-simplicity-solve-ark-problems-124318
      • PixARK also differs from its predecessor by making conscious attempts to be less of a time sink. A typical 12-hour wait to tame a Giga, for example, will be just a few minutes long in PixARK, (yay!!!) and a two-hour trip to restock gasoline will be replicated as a 15-minute diversion. This short-burst philosophy ties into Dino ownership too. Unlike Survival Evolved, tames in PixARK will only last for a maximum of three days.  It’s a tweak that Kang feels will rectify one of ARK’s biggest design flaws. He envisions a path that makes dinosaurs easier to tame but with a limited duration gain.

        “We felt like the whole dinosaur-farm concept was a poor design choice because it encouraged players to stockpile hundreds of dinosaurs for no reason. It created this scenario where players felt compelled to go online and feed the dinosaurs or they would die,” he said. “Having an attachment to your dinosaurs is great, (SHE CUT OUT HERE!!)  but it'd be a lot more fun if you had to tame raid-focused dinosaurs before each raid,” he explained.

        In this way, PixARK strives to address lasting issues that both Snail Games and Studio Wildcard acknowledged during the upcoming game’s development process. What you’re getting with PixARK, then, is a game built as an homage to Minecraft that encapsulates only the best and most digestible parts of Survival Evolved.
    • PixArk on Switch:
      https://www.nintendo-insider.com/tame-train-and-ride-dinosaurs-in-pixark-on-nintendo-switch/
  • Criikette: This made me think of another game coming out (http://www.arkparkvr.com/).  I don’t have more info on it atm, but I’ll look into it.  I will mention it in a second when we finish talking PixArk.
  • Changes in Ark Catch up!
    • On the 10th of February, turrets were hard-number limited to 100. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius, however existing set-ups with over 100 turrets will still function as normal until the 18th of February when we will enable the hard limit, which will retroactively disable (randomly selected) turrets that are over the 100 limit from functioning. Here's the patch note for the turret changes when they land on the 18th:
    • Monday February 26, 2018 https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/articles.html/community-crunch-120-arkpocalypse-servers-r693/
    • Extinction Servers are now called Arkpocolypse Servers.
  • They will be off-lining some additional Legacy servers on March 9th. If you are a player on the Official Legacy Server Network please read the full post at the link below for more information as well as a list of which Legacy servers are being taken down permanently.
  • Fortitude now provides some resistance versus the effects of the Rex Roar, and this resistance carries onto player-ridden dinos too.
  • The Giga is no longer raged by fall damage
  • Cooldown added to tribe's changing their name ( I looked and I can not find any time given and have seen a lot of complaints where they cant change the tribe name at all atm.)
  • A common question from Primitive Plus fans is about the lack of content on Scorched Earth and Aberration. For TLC Patch #2 in March, they will finally be properly introducing the content to these maps so that Primitive fans will be able to take full advantage of the gamemode on these maps.

Willektron: A bit of “old news” - Dino TLC-pass Phase 1

WILL READS

Dino TLC - The Procoptodon!

- Receives a model update, animation update, sound pass, and some new abilities:
- Will take reduced fall damage
- Carry weight will be noticeably increased
- Can carry small creatures and baby dinos in its pouch
- A knockback kick which can affect significantly larger dinos
- Added an aimed jump which can be used by holding down the Jump key

- Babies imprinted while in a carried Procoptodon pouch receive more affinity

 

SITY READS Dino TLC - The Gigantopithecus A.K.A Bigfoot!
(interesting note: King Louie in the live action Jungle Book movie from a few years back was a Gigantopithecus, as per his song.  And voiced by the great Christopher Walken)


- Receives a model update, animation update, new fur, sound pass and some new abilities:
- The Bigfoot will receive an armour-degrading attack; this means when it fights, it'll do more damage to your armour's durability. It is important to note that the armour-degrading attack will not affect the Yeti creatures found in the game.
- Added the capability to climb ziplines (but not jump between them)
- Added a jump
- It can now carry and throw small creatures
- Throwing has been made more accurate, similarly to crabs with targeting cursor

The Aberrant Brute squad in training

 

FOERENDER READS Dino TLC - The Direbear!

- Receives a model update, animation update, new fur and some new abilities:
- When riding a Direbear, players will be immune to bees. They won't be able to knock you off your bear, and they will target focus the bear instead of the player.

FOERENDER

Dear Diary,

I've done many things in Ark; sailed the seas, flown through the skies, stalked the lands, and been killed hundreds of times along the way. I decided it was time to hatch my first wyvern. I know that many of my fellow survivors have done this many times with ease. I can now put wyvern hatching on my long list of things I'm not good at. Firstly, stealing eggs while flying a pteranodon is extremely difficult. Once I stole an egg, I got back to base and promptly ate it. I had to go back and get another one. Then, I had trouble hatching it. I didn't have air conditioners, and so lazily settled for campfires. I got stuck on them, and burnt to death. This happened twice, then finally my wyvern hatched. Thankfully I raised it without a problem. I went into this endeavour hoping to spice up my life, and boy did I get what I wished for!

Yours truly,

Scarlettefury

****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme**** (Criikette adding his $.02)

Dino Name:    BASILISK

What are they? An Aggressive Carnivore that waits hidden underground for its prey to approach before it springs out in ambush. It can be seen before it attacks by noticing the dirt pile with 3 tentacles (tail spikes) sticking out.  They have a poison spit attack that releases a cloud of poison.  Hazmat and gas mask both seem to block this extra damage.  

 

Goon in green How to Tame:

Do Do Dex User Tip : Get yourself a Rock Drake, Karkinos, Spinosaurus or any other creature usually ignored by this creature, dismount to gain its attention and mount again; Drop the (Fertilized) Rock Drake Egg from YOUR inventory and proceed to circle the Basilisk until it loses interest on you. Wait for the feeding interval to end, repeat.

They are a passive tame, preferred food is the fertilized Rock Drake Egg (think this is the only food it eats)

They can be found:

 

  • On The Aberration Map
  • Spawns at an uncommon rate in The Portal and rarely in The Edge areas.

 

They can Damage Thatch and Wood.

GOON: Dododex user tips:

1-“Aberration survival rule #1: if you see a strange "v" in the ground, run for your life and don't look back”

ESME 2- “When it is underground it does use stamina which means it can not be underground permanently, it is extremely fast when it is underground and untargetable, and when underground it will be blocked by structures such as, walls, foundations, rocks, etc.”

Criikette Other tip:

1 - When you are riding it underground, you are using your oxygen up.  ‘Don’t get drown’d when underground.’

2 - Be careful as users have reported basilisks falling under the mesh when burrowing on lake/water floors.  

*****Felloons Admin Tip******

Tip:We thought it might be nice to add a series on Admin duties, tools and server setup so I’ve worked out a series on that topic.

 

  1. What does it mean to be an admin?

    1. This is obviously my opinion and how I try to model myself as an admin, and really is what I liked most about the various admins that I have been around.
    2. You serve the community.
      1. People still get stuck, have dino issues or the game glitches and you need to get their stuff back.
    3. TIP: if someone is stuck or their dino is stuck, it's easier to get their dino back if they are mounted - then admin teleport that player to you. (use showmyadminmanager)

TIP TIME!

 

  • ONLY FILL OUT ONE OF THE TIP Sections BELOW FOR EACH EPISODE.
  • SAVE EXTRA TIPS AND INFO FOR FUTURE SHOWS SO WE WILL NOT RUN OVER OUR TIME LIMIT. Crap I did two, dont do the gear up section
  • You do not have to add anything if you have nothing to add.
  • There can be more than one tip under a section, just not one host with multiple tips.

 

 

****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:

Goon: Build a raft

When you first arrive on the beach, a lot of people start building a shack, which is smart, but when you reach level 16 consider building yourself a raft. The raft takes you away from a majority of dangerous dinos, but it also makes for a great starter house. With it you can go around and get mats a lot easier, and when being chased it makes for a quick get away. You can put foundations down and make a nice shack, with all the crafting tables and forges to get you on a solid start. Just remember not to venture to far out into the water, the Leedsichthys will actively destroy them.

  • they have 88 structure limit (Esme discovered that they have a height limit too!)
  • You cannot reverse
  • You can hide the sail by pressing and holding the E-key
  • If you get stuck, look under it for a rock or log
  • Animals with that can use platform saddles will not stay on it, they slide right off


*****Alpha Tip*****
Do you have a tip for more experienced players? Share it below:

*****Pimp my Hut*****
Do you have a Building Tip, Tricks, Etc that you would like to share? Are you working on a building project? Have an idea for a building project? Share it here!

 

Willektron: Snap points for buildings

  • This is limited to S+, as far as I could tell
  • When you’re building a multiple story building, and you’re placing walls for the second story or above, it can place unevenly (some are lower or higher than others, by a small amount)
  • This is because both the ceiling and the top of the wall just below it have snap points, and it’s something of a toss-up which one your new wall will pick to snap to; it doesn’t always build in the place the hologram shows
  • If you want it to be flush with the top of the wall below, build the third level of wall before placing the ceiling - this is the most consistent overall
  • If you want your building to be just a bit taller, then this method works, but it’s not quite as straightforward: use pillars to place the ceilings before the wall below, place walls on top of the ceilings, then build the wall in below the ceilings. Unfortunately, with this method, it’s a toss-up whether the walls below will decide to snap to the bottom of your ceiling, or the bottom of the wall above it, so really you have the same issue, but it’s a little less noticeable with the order you’re building in
  • This is not an issue with vanilla structures. The positioning of the walls is the same whether you’re placing on top of a ceiling or another wall; regardless of the order you build in, everything is flush

*****Taming Pen*****

 

  • Cover info on one creature on the island.
  • Do you have any Taming Tricks to share? A Taming Tip?

 

 

SITY: Gear Up man:

What does everyone wear?  I wear a combo of gear for daily stuff - with a shield, but have FUR for ICE and GHILLIE for like Honey (until I get a bear)  and for sneaking up on Tapajara’s

 

Criikette note: I usually get one or two really good pieces of ghillie/desert (usually helmet and boots) to wear alongside my flak/riot.  These can provide enough hyperthermal insulation to prevent being hot in the majority of climates.  I don’t normally carry a shield as they are quite heavy, but I always have one at base in case I’m doing something that needs one.

Do you guys change for a particular scenarios?  Taming certain Dino requires certain armor or protection,it really helps.  Along with saddle upgrades for dinos.

*****Enraged*****
Do you want to share something you would like to see changed or something you have seen that the community seems to dislike?

Felloon: 10s CD on glider.. Is really just the straw that broke the camel’s back. I wish when Wildcard changes something for pvp balance they would leave an ini file out for the folks that didn't want to live in whinnersville...

Did you do something full of fail this week? Maybe hit the E key again? Share it here!

 


*****Dino Sutra*****

Do you have a tip regarding taming?  Maybe a certain dino that you just can’t get enough of?  Share it here!

Criikette: S+ Mutator

Since we’re using the S+ mod set, we have access to the Mutator and Hitching Post.  What this does is sends out a pulse that lasts for 5 minutes(?) and any dino conceived (egg laid or mammalian pregnant) during this time will have a guaranteed mutation (or multiple).  It costs 10 element for a pulse so it’s not cheap (even with our increased rates), so I try to maximize the effect of this.  What this means is that I try to prep as many dinos to mate during the time as I can.  In order to make it quicker to get all the dinos to start mating “on cue” as opposed to having to go and set them to wander, I utilize the fact that they will not start to mate if they are on wander AND on follow.  The hitching post allows us to set a dino to wander but not have them move.  So I set them all to wander and follow me.  Then after I hit the mutation pulse, I whistle “All stop” (default U), and they will start to mate.  My plan using this same strategy to make it even easier is to set up a breeding bin outside of my normal base where I can safely use the dreaded and dangerous whistle “All follow” (default J).  This way, I can set them up to all follow with one key and not worry about messing up my base.  Other variations that I have plans for and will be testing out would be to sit on a dino and whistle All follow so that I can keep them on wander at all times, but they will only mate when I want them to (useful to not have unclaimed dinos wandering around).  Also, using the tame groups (Add class to group) and the “ignore group whistles” is useful to be able to use the J key but only affect the dinos that you want.

Name: Cyberjudge

Input:

Dark and Light  - Game is still very early beta but still a ton of fun

 

  • Very similar to Ark with some big differences that seems to attract me to it. For example Magic!! If you wish in DNL you can actually be like a wizard and craft different spells for your staff.
  • Skills a structured in a way that it’s not just about leveling your character to unlock the skills, in DNL you level each skill. IE Chopping Trees improved your woodworking, once you unlock first tier of woodworking, chopping trees is not as effective as building wood structures to unlock the other tiers. It’s IMO a fantastic way to unlock skills.
  • CRR has a Dark and Light server up and running. It’s open exclusively to CRR members. I took over the server and anybody who wishes to join, can send me a message in Discord with there Steam ID to be added to the list of players who can access the server.

 

 

Ark - Aberration has been fun. Best was the first few days when it felt like being a noom all over again.

 

PUBG - I’m still playing PUBG when I get others to join. I’ve found I’m not racing to play PUBG solo anymore. The game came out of early access back in December, just before Christmas. With the 1.0 release they released a new desert map and a mechanic that was long needed (vaulting). I’m still awful at the game but do enjoy playing when I have others to balance out my bad game play. ;)

 

7 Days to Die - I have played a small amount of this game. Not enough to talk in depth about. It’s a survival horror game. Lots of zombies, and every 7 game days is a red moon where you better have a good base built or you will be over run. If there are any CRR members playing, it would be cool to meet up together on a server to play together.

Input:

Ark - (I’ll save most of this stuff for Rated Ark) Saw that Aberration was released and it brought me back to Ark and CRR.  Very fun stuff, beautiful to see and just fun to explore.  If you haven’t heard of it or used it, the nVidia Freestyle settings make it look even more beautiful.  It lets you essentially apply effects real time to your game. I think it is meant for streamers really, but I love it just as a player.  My favorite settings are Vibrance and Contrast to Max. It just makes all the shinies in Ab pop.

How to install nVidia Freestyle

 

Subnautica - Took a small break from Aberration to finally load up Subnautica.  Refreshing change as it felt less dangerous.  Bioluminescence was very similar to the blue zone of Ab. Biggest problem was pressing the Ark keys to try to do things, like E to try to activate things.  It is also nice to know that the world is frozen while not online.  Wish that Freestyle worked in SubN.

 

Pathfinder (i.e. D&D) - Tabletop RPG that I had played a bunch before but had taken a break. Got back into it after my move and spent a lot of time playing that again with local players.  Got more into painting miniatures (which I know Foe does as well).  Been debating about getting an airbrush to help.

LitRPG is an amazing genre for gamers or anyone really. I devour these books and the genre has been around for a while which is beneficial for fans.

Nick podehl is by far one of the best narrators I've ever heard.

Best LitRPG ive listened to and some others.

The Land series
Awaken Online series
Sigil Online: Paragons
Ascend Online
Viridians Gate Online

Other notable books

Armada - Ernest Cline
We are legion, We are Bob
Off to be a wizard - (very Rick and morty meets the matrix in a fantasy setting)

!!!!Best Book soon to hopefully be a movie!!!!!
Sooo good!!

Res Rising series. It's a trilogy l highly reccomend.

Only problem with LitRPG is they all tend to have a familiar theme.

Enjoy!

  • With the recent release of Shadow of War. I decided to install the predecessor, shadow of Mordor which I picked up a long time ago in a steam sale or humble bundle but never installed it. The game is not bad and is a very open world game. You can pick what you want to do and there are a lot of choices. the game takes place between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The player controls Talion, a Ranger who bonds with a wraith, as the two set out to avenge the deaths of their loved ones. Players can engage in melee combat, and use wraith abilities to fight and manipulate enemies. The cool thing about this game is how it has a Nemesis System, which allows the NPCs to remember the deaths of Tailion (you) and reacts accordingly. If a Captain kills you, they get stronger and move up in Sauron’s Army Rank. If you encounter them again they will remind you they killed you and make other comment s pertaining to your last meeting.  It's a good game when I need to play something solo. The controls are very similar to Assassin's Creed if you have played that game before. (I’m playing on PC using and XBox 360 controller)
    (http://store.steampowered.com/app/241930/Middleearth_Shadow_of_Mordor/)

 

 

 

  • I also recently joined other CRR members in Team Fortress 2. We had a great time and I look forward to having more game nights in tf2. For those who have never played, tf2 is a f2p team based shooter with Various different play modes. The games graphics are more cartoony and the maps are not overly large but the game is still fast paced and fun when you are playing with a good group of players.

CRR DnD campaign

“The Grey Raven Inn , is located on the north side of town close enough to the Well to draw in new customers but far enough to not be overrun with new faces , this draws in the locals , there location is borderline the "Rich" quarter and the middle class quarter . THE Inn is kept it great shape with fine wood work a large bar that takes up the whole south wall in the main room across the Room past the tables is a huge stone fireplace which keeps the main level of the inn warm in the winter , there is a small stage and a medium dance floor in front  of it . There is always music playing thanks to the in house band and often times people dancing to the music . The inn has the old beer smell that's expected in the Inn but it's an undertone to the wonderful scents of baked bread , This in is known for its honey oat ale and sweet cinnamon rolls as well as a fine lamb stew . Olen the bar keep and owner is a rather large fellow with a loud  Boisterous laugh , he doesn't hide his battle scars from his time spent as a soldier he has the build of a black Smith and has a rather large Axe hanging behind the bar probably why his Inn is kept rather clean . Rose  Molina And Quincy are his 3 daughters and bar maidens all 3 attractive and  flirtatious but Olens eye keeps paws at check no doubt.  Reese his wife is  responsible for the fine food and the secret  family ale recipe .  This inn is great for info , and jobs Do to the fact it draws in a rather mixed crowd”

My first ever pc game was command and conquer, red alert 2 was great. .

and then starcraft .  i have been playing starcraft 2 ( blizzard game) off and on and just recently remembered that i pre-ordered the remastered starcraft so i haven't really gotten a chance to try the remastered yet. . . . i miss playing them (memories of the good old days) i never know if anyone else is interested in them .  the story in starcraft 2 is fun and there are a lot of options for the multiplayer. Mutation i've found is definitely the most challenging. Coop options as well as 1v1 or 2v2  they can get pretty hectic at times . the more you play the better stuff  you can build and different boosts to some abilities. There are hours of gameplay still ahead but i find that the rts genre is kinda forgotten about I definitely should have been more prepared for this but that's my spiel.

Input: knights of pen and paper 2 (http://www.paradoxplaza.com/knights-of-pen-and-paper-2/KPKP02GSK-MASTER.html) the game is free on mobile and $8 on Steam. I'm playing on mobile only. The game is 16 bit d&d game played as if you are playing the pen and paper game. The game basically evolves around a table that has a dungeon master and your team of players you create. Behind the table will be a scene depicting where you are and showing any enemies you are battling. I'm not sure what the Steam version is like but I find the f2p mobile version is a bit challenging and without using the real money store kind of grindy to get money. The game is fun however and keeps drawing me back. The game is made by Paradox interactive

Wisdom Of The Crowd
Wisdom of the Crowd is a drama about a visionary tech innovator who creates a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app to solve his daughter's murder, and revolutionize crime solving in the process. Inspired by the notion that a million minds are better than one, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jeffrey Tanner, develops "Sophe," an online platform for publicly shared information he's certain will find his daughter's killer. As Tanner taps into the "wisdom of the crowd," his unexpected success fuels his determination to solve even more cases than just the one that's personal to him.

Impractical Jokers

“Four comedians and lifelong friends compete to embarrass each other out amongst the general public with a series of hilarious and outrageous dares. When Sal, Joe, Q, and Murr challenge each other to say or do something, they have to do it. And if they refuse, they lose. At the end of every episode, the biggest loser must endure a punishment of epic proportions. This season, the guys pose as hot dog vendors, gymnasts, waiters, clerks at a bridal shop and more. As for the punishments, from skydiving to the rodeo to the body piercing shop, they are bigger, badder, and funnier than ever before.”

My favorite by far to watch is the Force Grey series. First season was Giant Hunters, the second season which is currently coming out weekly is Lost City of Omu.  Both seasons where DMed by Matthew Mercer (Animated Voice Actor known for ThunderCats, DC Super Friends and others). The different voices he uses to tell the stories make it so interesting. The first season starred: Chris Hardwick (House of 1000 Corpses, The Lego Batman Movie, Talking Dad), Shelby Fero (Standup comedian), Ashley Johnson (Blind Spot, Growing Pains, The Avengers), Jonah Ray, Utkarsh Amdudkar (Pitch Perfect). The second season starred:  Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike, Smurfs: The Lost Village, Spider-Man), Deborah Ann Woll (Daredevil, True Blood), Brian Posehn (The Big Bang Theory, Fantastic 4: Rise of the SIlver Surfer), Dylan Sprouse (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place), and returning from Season 1 Utkarsh Ambudkar)

Scarelettefury Diaries
Dear Diary,

I've officially moved from the Island to Ragnarok! It didn't take long, as I decided to set my dinos free and start from scratch. This time I'm going to go full medieval. Once I've finished building my castle, I'm going to breed Equus' as my next project! I've never tried full-time breeding before, so it could be interesting. Hopefully the recent invasion of Bush people won't wipe out all my hard work!

P.S. I've heard of a newly discovered underground world, full of fantasy creatures and new lands. I can't wait to travel there someday!

 

 

 

*****Fresh from the Forge******Ark News Segment

( Ark News Segment. Did any of us find any juicy news we want to share)
ARK Digest Edition! (Digest 50)

Here is our special Aberration edition question and answer session with Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, Co-Creative Director of ARK: Survival Evolved, and Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard: Jeremy "Drake" Stieglitz!

Survivor Eschmidty505 asks, "Will Aberration have an Ascension boss like the island?"

Quote
Yes, along with an increased Ascension level and a narrative-advancing ending!

Survivor NeckRipper asks, "Will dlc content carrier over to the different arks island, center and rag? Like zipline, ice picks ect…"

Quote
Yes, it will, and all of the items are being designed to be useful on more than just Aberration.

Survivor danleveille asks, "How will taming work in Aberration? Will there be any major changes to the taming mechanic or will it remain roughly similar? Will there be Kibble? Asking for a friend."

Quote
For your “friend”, I can say that while most creatures will be similar in core mechanics to The Island creatures, there are a few that are rather batsh$t crazy to tame. One even involves xenomorphic impregnation and chestbursting.

Survivor xViiVD asks, "I have heard from multiple sources that there will be no fliers on this map. Will you restrict any form of transferring fliers or will tribes be allowed pteras and wyverns over to Aberration from the island?

Quote
By default and on Official Servers there will not be any rideable fliers transferrable onto the map, in order to encourage new forms of traversal. This will be a server option of course.

Survivor OnePotatoChip asks, "Does this map have more of a PvE focus or at least more PvE oriented content?"

Quote
In my view Aberration is the most PvE oriented ARK yet, with more story development than ever before, and more unique non-natural mythos “landmarks” to find and explore.

Survivor WeebTrash asks, "I heard that because of how Aberration's map is designed, gamma won't work on it to make it lighter, is this true? If so, is there gonna be a server option for unofficials to enable gamma working on that map?"

Quote
Not sure where you heard that, no plans to change the current gamma functionality.

Survivor RaifuForLaifu asks, "What are "Element Chambers"?"

Quote
They are zones of intense radiation where it is possible to collect Element Ore, as well as encounter certain hideous, aggressive creatures.

Survivor HighFlyer15 asks, "Unlike Scorched Earth, where we saw a whole lot of creatures from the Island, can we expect only to see new creatures on Aberration?"

Quote
Aberration will include various biome-appropriate creatures from The Island, similar to Scorched Earth.

Survivor Wolf Angelus asks, "What has persuaded you guys to go the sci-fi approach? You could have picked many different routes, but what was the logical thought for this choice, and the incorporation of radiation, and other such things that are "space-themed"?"
Quote
Specifically in this case, Aberration was chosen in order to develop the next story arc of… ARK!

Survivor Blackwolfe asks, "Will the cliff platforms be like the tree platforms in the way that they can only be placed in specific spots or will you be able to place them anywhere? Will you be able to snap things on cliff platforms?"

Quote
You can build the cliff platforms onto ANY surface that has sufficient attachment area, not only at pre-determined locations.

Survivor PuffyPony asks, "A big part of Aberration is the idea that a malfunctioning ARK led to mutations in its population. Are we getting/can we get lore into what developed into what? Like the Lantern Pug appears to be a mutated Angler, the Rock Drake could be a Megalania, the crazy Mysterious Mysteries #1 a Thylacoleo... I'd love to get some of the background on that, since it'd tie the DLC into the base game nicely."

Quote
Yes, there will be some indications along those lines. What developed into the Nameless?

Survivor alcarazr asks, "Will we be able to directly harvest Element in Aberration, either as a resource (with a new tool, such as a special pick) or by killing certain creatures?"

Quote
Yes.

Survivor Deaner asks, "Will Aberration have a new building tier just like Scorched Earth got the adobe building tier?"

Quote
It won’t have a completely unique tileset, but will have a lot of new utility structures.

Survivor lysergicsid asks, "It was mentioned that the Ark in Aberration has an unstable atmosphere, leaks, etc. so how does that tie into the gameplay, if at all? Like are there some areas where you can suffocate outside of water? If so, will there be any masks or tools that can counteract this?"

Quote
Yes there are areas with Low or No Oxygen, and of course the incredibly harsh surface radiation, along with various other environmental hazards. Yeah, there’s a new Hazard Suit designed to aid in counter-acting SOME of these conditions.

Survivor TalSet asks, "This world is supposed to be hostile with mutants correct? Is it going to be one of those situations where its very difficult to start and you constantly die as you spawn?"

Quote
We’re trying to make the initial difficulty ramp more forgiving on this ARK, for example the giant “Fertile Chamber” is actually pretty chill, and things get more difficult the deeper you go...

Survivor DauntedVenus asks, "Well, the question most of the community will ask is... will there be legacy servers for this DLC?"

Quote
Of course!

Survivor DiloFodder asks, "Will you be able to fire weapons from the back of the rock wyvern? I think it would be equal parts amazing and terrifying to have a firing platform for a sniper that functions as a glider and can utilize a basic active camouflage and would be awesome to use for guerrilla style warfare."

Quote
Yes.

Survivor Ashtray asks, "Will the cave climbing picks be able to be used freely on any cliff/cave or only on certain areas?"

Quote
Freely on essentially any surface :)

Survivor Colonel Siberia asks, "How useful a role will regular land animals with no climbing dynamics be in moving about? Will we be able to go from one biome to the next without needing to switch to a more mobile creature like the showcased rock drake? Or will there be geographical limitations that necessitate adding all-terrain creatures to our arsenals and adapting to the topography?"

Quote
Most of Aberrations creatures have capabilities to move through the complex environment, and there are also new structures to aid in both primitive and high-tech dino mobility...

Survivor Colonel Siberia asks, "How will earthquakes change the way players build their bases and raise their dinos? Are the earthquakes capable of damaging structures and, if so, are there any ways we can mitigate these effects?"

Quote
They are capable of damaging structures, but they’re only intense in certain areas of certain biomes. Building permanent bases there is not advised!

Survivor Colonel Siberia asks, "How will radiation affect the way players explore and how will hazard suits work with the system? Will there be any strange creatures that survive, and possibly even thrive, in radiation zones? Is the radiation solely on the surface, or will we encounter some underground, as well?"

Quote
Yes, a few creature types benefit from radiation. It’s not solely on the surface, but is most intense there. The Hazard Suit mitigates radiation and other extreme environmental dangers, but its durability is decreased over time when under such effects.

Input: Automated ark
:author “blitzfire911”
I heard of this mod a while ago , watching a streamer that i’ve been watching; since the start of my ark days. . From what i’ve seen and heard of it . . it would take all the tedious parts out of everyday operations that occur in ark. . i know myself i hate organizing my vaults and get super bothered by the fact that i can never find anything because i give up sorting after just a few mins. Transfering items after farming emptying bosses after a leveling run etc. . yeah i know that the s+ mod allows pulling. This mod seems to a whole lot more than that. . i am mid testing it on a single player server. It’s going to take some time being i suck at the admin commands and it takes me forever to actually get anything done . I wonder if anyone would be interested in going to a private server to give it a try or have heard anything about it. . . will it actually work with the extinction core mod?. I am definitely looking forward to checking it out some more . and maybe even convincing the admins to give it a try on our modded server. .

Name: Cyberjudge
Input: Dino Tracker - Though I have not tried this mod, the description makes it sound like a mod I’d love. Yes on our ecor server we have the pet finder mod but Dino Tracker by Knevilo sounds like you can track a specific dino. Would be a cool mod to try.

A mod that I have tried and love using is Super Spyglass by Orionsun (The same guy who makes Structures Plus) Super Spyglass allows you to pull out the spyglass and get the full stats of the wild dino including its health and torpor. It’s a nice little mod when trying to hunt the perfect specs for a tame.

For Science! = Trying a new server? A New aspect of the game? A new technique?
Damn E Key = Did you do something full of fail this week? Maybe hit the E key again?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Cyberjudge
Input: Continuing off with my last punching trees tip. Don’t start off trying to tame the biggest baddest dino you see. Learn the different types of dinos and focus on resource gathering dinos to allow you to build faster and some lower difficulty carnovaurs for defense. Yes it would be lovely at level 20 to have a tamed T-Rex but that may not be feasible without help. Start by trying to get a Trike for a pack mule and can get berries and thatch fairly easy. Once a bit more advanced look for Castoroides (aka Beaver) for wood, Megaloceros (aka Deer) for thatch, Anklosaurus for Metal, and Doedicurus for Stone. For defense start basic with things like Dilophosaur and then move to Raptor, then Carno and so on.

Name: Cyberjudge

Input: Correction from the last RatedArk Podcast (episode 61): The Official Ark app does not have features similar to Dododex. There is an app similarly named in the android play store.  I was looking at “Survive ARK Companion” by LandDragon instead of “SurviveTheArk Community” by Studio Wildcard.

 

Other stuff I’ve been doing: Been playing a lot of PUBG, many CRR members are playing and I’ve been able to team up with @Gigabyte, @Provoke, @mPolo, and others.

 

I also took advantage of the Steam free weekend of Tom Clancy: The Division. I enjoyed the free weekend enough that I bought it while it was still on sale and now I have total gamer ADD bouncing between Ark, PUBG and Division. :)

I’ve been focusing on raises horses, trying to get a max tier and then I’ll work myself into a very profitable life as a horse trader and go into early retirement.

ESME- back

 

Name: Esme I am still chipping away at Merlin. I am in season 4 out of five and I hate the endings of things so i am trying to space it out :) The hubs and I have started watching a show on NBC that just wrapped up its season finale called Midnight, Texas

“Welcome to a place where being normal is really quite strange. From Niels Arden Oplev, the visionary director of "Mr. Robot," and based on the hit book series from author Charlaine Harris ("True Blood"), comes a journey into a remote Texas town where no one is who they seem. From vampires and witches to psychics and hit men, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. As the town members fight off outside pressures from rowdy biker gangs, ever-suspicious cops and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form a strong and unlikely family.”

Small Town, Big Mayor is an UP original series.
D’Lo Mississippi is a quaint and quirky town straight from the 1950’s; everybody knows everybody and life is idyllic for its residents.  There’s only one problem for this town of 456: Main Street is shut down, people are moving to the city at alarming rates and it’s very possible that D’Lo may cease to exist.

Mayor John Henry Berry is a fourth generation D’Lo native and perhaps the most passionate, hands-on public servant in America. The white-suit-wearing, golf-cart-driving, firebrand campaigned on the promise that he would restore D’Lo to its former glory and he now has four years to do it. John Henry has developed an ambitious, 95-point plan to save his beloved town and — just as importantly — preserve a way of life that is dying all across America.Small Town Big Mayor on the cable Channel UP”

Cyberjudge - Canadian Funny Law: While it won’t make you a law-breaker, according to Canada’s Currency Act of 1985, there are limits to the number of coins you can use in a transaction. Now that we’ve put the kibosh on the old penny, are you accumulating nickels? If it’s nickels, vendors can say no to any purchase over $5, while the loonie limit is $25.

Few may remember this, but thanks to lobbying by dairy farmers it was illegal to sell butter-coloured margarine in Ontario until 1995. In fact, margarine was altogether banned in Canada from 1886 to 1948. (There was a brief reprieve during the First World War).

Since 1973, the only noise-makers Sudbury cyclists can attach to their bikes are bells and horns. Breaking noise bylaws in Sudbury can lead to fines up to $5,000. Umm, who attaches a siren to their bike, anyways?

 

FOE

A license must be purchased before hanging clothes on a clothesline.

Every business must have spitoons and clean them every 24 hours

Citizens may not greet each other by “putting one’s thumb to the nose and wiggling the fingers”.

It is against the law to throw a ball at someone’s head for fun.

A person may not walk around on Sundays with an ice cream cone in his/her pocket.

Hey, I was just listening to your last podcast and I heard you mention Ready Player One. I forgot how i had heard about that book. I listen to alot of podcasts. Anyways, I finished the book and I have to say it is one if the best books I've ever read/listened to. Thanks for recommending it.
I just have one problem. After finishing it i was left wanting more. Its rather short. I went on to research to try to find books with a similar genre or at least as good. I found Armada, i think also written by the same author. Another good book. Not as good, but good. Right now I'm going through the Witcher series but am almost done.
Do you guys have any comparable books that you like as much. Please let me know to help me feed my new addiction.

Thanks guys. A especially you promo.

-Justin

P.S. am I the I the only one who feels like the Ark fad is dying. I've been just logging on lately to reset timers in anticipation of Ragnarok dropping on ps4. It seems the lag is unbearable making the game in my opinion almost unplayable. In any case have you guys thought about renaming your podcast, maybe something more general about gaming. It seems from the tone of your podcasts that you might even be losing interest in the game. Not that much passion lately in your podcasts, not as much as there used to be about Ark anyway. After over a year of talking about a single game i don't blame you guys.

 

 

FOE: Scarlet Diaries
Dear Diary,
I've realized that while I live a well rounded lifestyle, I haven't ever tried sailing. So, I decided to be a sea-fairing nomad for a little while. I brought supplies and only a beaver as company, preferring to keep things simple. What I'd forgotten about were the boat-hating whales that live in the ocean around the island. I made the poor decision to sail to herbivore island to stock up on metal. My boat was ripped in half by an enormous white whale! Two weeks of work sunk to the bottom of the ocean, leaving me surrounded by megalodons. My beaver, which miraculously survived, didn't even have a saddle because I'd stored it on my boat. I'm now stuck on herbivore island with only a saddle-less beaver. When I get back home, I think I'm going to stick to land.
Yours truly,
Scarlettefury

PS. I have a tip for new players. When you go out exploring, take whatever taming supplies you have. I can't count the number of times I've seen my dream tame, only to realize I don't have narcotics or tranq arrows.

Main Topic
You get hired as the creative director of Ark, and you have complete creative control over the game.
What do you do?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: giga (guesss ill go first lol)
Input: Honestly i would look into merging all the maps into a super map bringing the best of each while tossing the worst
Craftable ships, example conquer the seas mod

Name: PROMO
Input:
Better dino animations (including idle)
Deals w/ best mods to become integrated into the main game
Mini Games or Event based game mechanics

 

Name: CYBERJUDGE
Input:
Additional Mobile App features to allow for managing of farming and crafting and feeding while you can not be in game. Maybe even a way to provide care to your baby Dinos.
Official servers that are geared for Casual Player (less grindy, faster taming, breeding, harvesting etc etc)
Starting Tutorial Story that is optional but allows those who are interested learn basics while starting the story that would later be wrapped up when you ascend.

Name: Goon
Input: - Most games offer a hardcore version or players take it upon themselves, but I would like to see servers for this, when you die you respawn back at level 1 and lose everything you made
Maybe some cross breeding between species, i love the mad scientist thing

Name: Foe
Input: more things to do for PVE , raids , instances, human npcs and tribes that have settlements and that raids your base . PvP for me got old , but I played games like wow and Destiny for years searching for loot and running over content

 

 

TIP TIME!

Punching Trees = Tip for a new player?
Alpha Tip = Tip for a more experienced player
Pimp my Hut = Building Tip
Mod Spotlight = Favorite mod!? Hate the MOD?
Taming Pen = Taming tip time!
Enraged = What made you go RAWR!!!!!
Mate Boosted = “What are you LOVING in Game right now!?”
For Science! = Trying a new server? A New aspect of the game? A new technique?
Damn E Key = Did you do something full of fail this week? Maybe hit the E key again?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Cyberjudge
Input: Punching Tree Tip - Don’t be discouraged when starting to play the game. Work with others to start understanding how to survive. Watch live streams or let's plays to see how others have done it. Playing Ark as a new player will not be easy, especially on Official servers. Be patient and bring a friend when possible. And for those who were like me and just a listener of the podcast, I highly recommend joining the Cross Realm Rebellion group (or any other gaming community you may be interested in). Ark was almost at end of life for me, but since joining CRR and having others to join in on raids etc with, it’s re-invigorated my interest in Ark.

Name Goon - alpha tip
Input: don’t take the game to serious all the time, take some time to just have fun, dodo bomb somebody, or show up to a boss fight naked on a horse with a slingshot (just make sure you still have your gear in your arm.)

Name Foe
Input: don't be afraid to move on to another tribe or server if your not enjoying yourself, you can always rebuild, get new dinos ect..

Any game! Any Platform! Share it here!

Name: Esme

Input:

 

  • My computer hates Ark or Ark hates my computer so I have been forced to expand my gaming horizons to games my laptop can handle this week OR mobile games!
  • I really like the FTP game Arcane Legends so far. I was enjoying the game called “Hit” we are playing but the autoplay option it has seemed kinda of defeating the purpose. I wanted to find a game where we could play together and that game setup seems very limiting and it sucked my battery , made my phone super hot and the text for the guild chat was soooooo teeny tiny lol. In Arcane legends you can buy housing, join guilds, purchase guild halls, do pvp mas, pve maps, collect pets gather in stances and play together. It is enjoyable to me so far. I also like that you can play Arcane legends on your mobile devices AND in your browser.
  • I also downloaded Terraria to my kindle and that is fun too and Portal Knights on my laptop :) I still really like that game!
  • Last Day On Earth Survival Mobile Game
  • NEWS:
  • Conan Exiles has announced it latest “Free Expansion”. It is going to be the frozen North.
  • It is said that it will almost double the maps size.
  • Due August 16
  • the add-on delivers a new biome to the Exiles world
  • It boasts some harsh weather conditions
  • Players will be required to "dress for the weather" while campfires, torches and drinks serve to help them control their temperatures.
  • It will have new buildings and resources, a new religion and god, and two new crafting systems
  • Players will be able to make demon blood sausages, bug soup and a host of alcoholic beverages.
  • It is said that we will need to watch out hangovers because nursing a hangover in the Frozen North doesn't look pretty.
  • Arks new dino
  • Introducing the Otter!

    A new Dino Dossier has been revealed, this one is everyone’s favourite furry friend, the Otter!

    Common name: Otter
    Species: Lutra Peloso
    Time: Early Miocene
    Diet: Omnivore
    Temperament: Friendly

    Wild
    Found along the Island’s many inland waterways, Lutra Peloso have become exceptionally adept at hunting and foraging. This species of Otter has to be particularly cunning because of its diminutive size, and fierce competition for its preferred food source: fish. It is not a creature that excels at combat, and would not naturally pose an intimidating threat to any predators.

    Domesticated
    There are few creatures which provide the companionship that Lutra Peloso does. Rather than traveling beside you, it would prefer to comfortably rest on your back, providing insulation. Once domesticated, it can be told to harvest fish on demand, with a specific goal in mind from the fish that it consumes, the otter has a knack for foraging silica pearls, and can even yield a slight chance at finding black pearls within!

So I’ve been off work and recently started playing Fortnite on xbox with a few from CRR

 

Fortnite is described as a co-op sandbox survival game and is about exploration, scavenging items, crafting weapons, building fortified structures, and fighting waves of encroaching monsters                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

 

It’s alot of fun but ‘grindy’ small backpack and the constant demand to build and remake weapons due to durability is very time consuming.

 

The game apparently will be free to play and will be available with in game microtransactions, but right now it’s $40 for the basic and then offering deluxe packages ranging in price to over $100 but with them you also get free digital copies.

 

The range of depth and the actual play of the game is great when used to ark game play but paying $40 for a game which then required microtransactions aswell is just damn greedy. $15-20 would have felt fairer.

 

Ninja, constructor, outlander and soldier are the classes so far I’m having the most fun with my little ninja lady and her flaming sword of death.

 

Subnautica

 

It’s a solo game, You crash landed on a alien ocean world. Using your character and a onboard replicator in your escape pod you must survive on this completely alien world.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              It was a good game kept me going for a while but the lack of co op meant that it wasn’t for me

 

Anyone who doesn’t mind the idea of a single player only survival game. I would highly recommend this to as it’s got that real ‘alien’ feel to it as you hunt strange fish and scavenge metal from the ocean to make new weapons and structures to aid your survival. The whole underwater element is in other survival games but what makes this stand out is that the game is 100% set for underwater exploration and it shows

Name: Esme

Input: I have been binging on Merlin! Love the show. It has moments of corny creature graphics but I like the show all around!

Merlin is a British fantasy-adventure television programme created by Julian Jones, Jake Michie, Julian Murphy, and Johnny Capps, starring Colin Morgan in the title role. It was broadcast on BBC One from 20 September 2008 to 24 December 2012 for a total of 65 episodes. The show is loosely based on the Arthurian legends of the young wizard Merlin and his relationship with King Arthur, but it differs from traditional versions. The show was influenced by the US drama series Smallville about the early years of Superman,[3] and was produced by independent production company Shine Limited.

Merlin is a reimagining of the legend in which the future King Arthur and Merlin are young contemporaries. Arthur's father Uther Pendragon has banned magic in Camelot, its use punishable by death, forcing Merlin to keep his magical powers secret from everyone in Camelot other than his mentor Gaius. Arthur grows from a young, self-absorbed boy to the mighty king in the legends, and Merlin develops into his colossal role in creating the powerful Camelot. In 2012, the show's producers announced that its fifth series would be its last, with a two-part finale on 24 December 2012.

 

Scam City

https://www.netflix.com/title/80073739

Scam City is a television show which started airing on Travel + Escape in June 2012, and has subsequently aired on the National Geographic Channel,[3][4] and in Australia on the subscription channel Nat Geo People.[5]Host Conor Woodman travels to some of the world's most popular cities in an effort to expose the darker side of tourism.

 

Woodman meets with questionable characters ranging from unethical cab drivers to aggressive pimps as he witnesses and experiences the travel experience of parting with personal property and money. He intentionally falls victim to these alleged scammers and says "yes" to every sex worker and pocket jeweler in the city. The show aims to expose the local adaptations of common scams - from pickpockets, expensive cab fares, to bars luring people in with adult entertainment at a high cost.

Red Drawf

Red Dwarf is a British comedy franchise which primarily comprises eleven series (the ninth being a mini-series) of a television science fiction sitcom that aired on BBC Two between 1988 and 1993 and from 1997 to 1999, and on Dave in 2009 and 2012, gaining a cult following.[1] In May 2015, it was announced that Series XI and XII[2] would film back-to-back later in 2015 and would air exclusively on the Dave channel in 2016 and 2017

 

Despite the pastiche of science fiction used as a backdrop, Red Dwarf is primarily a character-driven comedy, with off-the-wall science fiction elements used as complementary plot devices. In the early episodes, a recurring source of comedy was the Odd Couple-style relationship between the two central characters of the show, who have an intense dislike for each other yet are trapped together deep in space. The main characters are Dave Lister, the last known human alive, and Arnold Rimmer, a hologram of Lister's dead bunkmate. The other regular characters are Cat, a lifeform which evolved from the descendants of Lister's pregnant pet cat Frankenstein; Holly, Red Dwarf's computer; Kryten, a service mechanoid; and, from Series VII through VIII, Kristine Kochanski, an alternative-reality version of Lister's long-lost love.

12 monkey’s (tv show)

12 Monkeys is an American television series on Syfy created by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett. It is a science fiction mystery dramawith a time traveling plot loosely based on the 1995 film of the same name, which was written by David and Janet Peoples and directed by Terry Gilliam, itself being inspired by Chris Marker's 1962 short film La Jetée; the series credits both Peoples and Marker for their original works.

In the series, Aaron Stanford and Amanda Schull star as James Cole and Dr. Cassandra "Cassie" Railly, who use time travel in an effort to stop the destructive plans of the enigmatic organization "Army of the 12 Monkeys". Kirk Acevedo and Noah Bean also star in the first season. In the second season, Bean makes a guest appearance, and Todd Stashwick, Emily Hampshire and Barbara Sukowa are promoted from recurring guests to regulars. Stanford, Schull and Hampshire play reimagined versions of characters respectively portrayed by Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe and Brad Pitt in the 1995 film.

Natalie Chaidez was the showrunner of 12 Monkeys during its first season, assisting Matalas and Fickett. After the season completed she stepped down to the role of consultant for the second season, and Matalas and Fickett became showrunners. In the third season Fickett became a consultant, and Matalas was the sole showrunner. The series is produced by Atlas Entertainment, which produced the original film, and Universal Cable Productions. Charles Roven, producer of the original, is one of the executive producers.

12 Monkeys premiered on January 16, 2015 with a 13-episode first season. In June 2016, it was renewed for a 10-episode third season, which premiered on May 19, 2017, and aired over three consecutive nights. In March 2017, the series was renewed for a fourth and final season consisting of 10 episodes, set to premiere in 2018.

Still listening to @RatedArk #58 and it seems that the cast doesn't know that trikes are very good bullet soakers now. So it pays for low level players to invest in kibble-taming trikes if they want to do some low level PvPing.

Ark Park website hasn't posted any updates since 2-2017. Last post was Secret is in the bush?

http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2017/08/03/the_ark_park_trailer_is_everything_wrong_with_video_games.html

  

Current Version: 759.2 X-Box

- Fixed some translations not displaying properly

- Fixed an issue on PvE and ORP servers where Dino would not have AI

- Fixed an issue where LB+Button combo would not function when selecting items in hotkey bar

- Fixed an issue where you would need to toggle folders to view items in your ARK Data

- Reverted the raft change so foundations can now be stacked again on Official Servers.

 

https://mmos.com/news/snail-games-usa-acquired-studio-wildcard-developer-of-ark-in-december-2015

 

You might be wondering why Studio Wildcard has been helping with the development of Dark and Light or why Snail Games announced two ARK spin-offs, the Minecraft-like PixARK and ARK GO, in addition to the free-to-play Chinese release of ARK. Well, it turns out that SDE, Inc, an affiliate of Snail Games USA, which is a subsidiary of Snail Games, bought out Studio Wildcard; the merger was filed for on December 4th, 2015. Officially, the company was merged into "Snail Ark, Inc." Unfortunately, we don't know how much Snail Games paid for the company.

This revelation was made due to the fact that new court documents filed by Insight Venture Management, the parent company of Trendy Entertainment that was recently suing Studio Wildcard over a failure to uphold a non-compete clause, referenced the buyout.

So now you know why ARK is slowly being turned into a major franchise, courtesy of Snail Games. The Chinese game developer and publisher owns Studio Wildcard and, by extension, the ARK franchise. It will be interesting to see what they do with the franchise after this initial burst of games.

COMMUNITY CRUNCH 98: GOLD MASTER EDITION
GOON(whos reading foe lol -giga)    Goon will if neededHey, Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

We've got some critical news to share with you all today; it's going to be a roller coaster of emotions as there's a bit of disappointing news, but worry not as you've got a lot to look forward to as well!

 

Let's address the mammoth in the room. Official Release. As of today, ARK has completed its Gold Master and certification for retail release. This process took a little longer than expected and as a result, our release date has been pushed back to August the 29th. We're deeply apologetic for those who were negatively affected by the delay; it sucks, it wasn't what we had wanted, nor planned but where we currently stand. We wanted to address this sooner but did not want to make any statements until we were completely sure of what was going to happen.

Now you're probably wondering what this means for the next few weeks and how does it change our current plans?

 

GIGA:

Free DLC: Ragnarok

Ragnarok's new release date on console and upcoming PC update will now also be the 29th of August. This extended time will allow further development of the map and you guys can expect a gigantic update, even bigger than we initially thought.

On the date of release, the overground of the world will increase by approximately one quarter, which is near-enough a 'TheIsland-sized' expansion; the update will feature new biomes, a coastal Wyvern canyon, an epic boss encounter, new engrams, and something secret the Ragnarok team are cooking up! We will also be adding their custom creatures to our main game, which will allow players to transfer them via the CrossARK system, so you'll be able to bring over your Ice Wyverns to The Island, The Center, and Scorched Earth!

 

 Development plans: immediate, mid-month, and going forward.

Over the next few weeks, you will see a lot of priority placed on the PC and multiplayer versions of the game, now that we're completely wrapped up with our gold master. We are planning some immediate patches to take care of community concerns, as well as some mid-month goals and more going forward.

First of all, there will be a lot of focus on PC Performance this month (don’t worry console-users, you’ll be receiving these updates too!). We will be porting over a lot of the improvements we made on console, as well as working with our industry partners to bring up that PC performance to get you the best possible experience.

Secondly, we will be immediately (as I type this the engineers and gameplay programmers are working on the update) showing some love to these aspects of the game:

Multiplayer Bosses; let's face it, they're ridiculous, we know why and we're going to fix it. You'll soon be able to enter the boss arenas and fight bosses at reasonable difficulty, it'll still be a challenge, just no longer a monumental/near-impossible task.

NOR WOOD!

The Baby-to-Juvie-Stasis issue; that's also getting fixed. For those not familiar, this is the problem where baby-creatures are entering stasis which (sort of) prevents them from ageing, and therefore they're not eating from troughs which result in death.

The Center & Under the Mesh; we're going to be implementing a technical solution to stop jerks from going under the map and raiding people. This one will take a little bit longer, but we'll have it in as soon as possible.

That's not all though! We will be releasing a major version update in the middle of the month which will significantly assist with DDoS mitigation, resolve the exploit which has allowed players to dupe, and of course not to be forgotten, but allow players to rent PC-dedicated Console Servers! We're also going to create an option to stop creatures from following you with their big heads (we'd do this one sooner, but it requires a major version update, so we thought it best come with the other significant changes mentioned above :p).

Esme

 

Not to mention, we'll be taking care of server crash-exploits as and when they happen, working on server performance so that you will have a smoother and stable experience.

Thank you so much for your patience the past few months and all the support! We will make sure that ARKs launch is a successful one and the game is in a healthy state. It's going to be a hectic few weeks ahead, and we're very excited! We still have a lot more planned for ARK, and even after release, the journey will continue!

 

We've started a thread to collect questions for our next ARK Digest, so if you've got something you want to ask - let us know and we might pick it out in the next post! https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/222585-ark-digest-question-collection/

i've played ark for a good bit, and lately it seems very stale. Maybe it's the constant crashing of ragnarok, or because ark is really repetitive or poorly optimized. IDK. anyone else share this opinion or have any insight on the matter?

From hugozilla on PS4

So I was running around last night farming metal, I went by a lake with a lot of beavers and  dams.  I counted 7 beaver and three dams.  One dam was off to the side. Wow. When I came back through I noticed no beavers were near the one, so I did what you do.  Soon a had a herd of beavers chasing me. I was running backwards laughing.  5 of them in hot beaver pursuit.   After leading those away I decided  the other dams would be safe to go back to.  I had forgotten about the remaining two and of course died .  Never underestimate the beavers around you!

 

Email From Listener Chris:

What's up y'all I  love the show. Quick question should loners be expecting to see the end game of Ark. I play on ps4 and have off and on since feb. I have been a lot more active in the last months but got tired of getting wiped on PvP so went to pve then experienced the piller problem that y'all speak on all the time. So I've just been having a good time in single player with no duping no pillars and also the thought of not knowing if I'll get to tame me a dragon. Is there a chance we see loners ever get to the end game if you will. Thanks Love the show again

ARK: STATE OF THE GAME
Hey, Survivors!

We’ve got important and exciting news to share! First of all, we’ve finally completed our game for the console disc retail submission! It was a very long and arduous process, our boss fight or so to say, and your feedback throughout this process has been highly valuable. It was a very tight deadline to make the ship date, and the team has been intensively grinding through singleplayer-oriented refinements for the posterity of the disc-based version. All that aside, we were able to resolve many issues, as well as considerably improve the game through various changes and implementation of new techniques and it’s now time to move onto refocus our development efforts on the live game, as well as address some key topics within the community:

 

Queen G

Will the Official Servers be wiping?
Short answer: No -- but read the long answer!
We had previously released a statement a year ago informing players that our Official Servers would not be wiping on the retail launch of the game. We’ve thought long and hard about the decision, taking into consideration the various points brought up by the community, the internal members of the team, as well as the general discussion that has taken place on the internet through various press/media outlets and will be sticking to our initial decision. It is clear that some group of players are for the wipe for, and some are against it, all for legitimate reasons; and we took it all into account.

We ultimately decided that we would not wipe and we would rather pay the cost to launch an additional new PvP and PvE Server Cluster network (alongside but separate from the current PvP and PvE Legacy Cluster), where players will get to have a fresh experience on the ARK; across all four maps with no influence from any of the previous servers. At that time we'll be rolling out the new server code and infrastructure necessary to prevent critical issues such as server crashing exploits, duping, and DDoSing, so they will not affect the batch of new servers (as well as the legacy ones, going forward).
GIGA
Our current set of Official Servers will be rebranded as “Legacy” and indicated as such on all platforms. We will also be taking steps to remove some of our ‘ghost town’ servers, where the player population has remained near-zero for an extended duration of time. We’ll take a look at the statistics and will be repurposing 10% of the lowest count servers across all platforms. Once we know which servers these are; we'll preserve the save files and upload them, so if you so wish to use them, you can. Players will also have time to move through Cross-ARK to a different secure Legacy server. Every three months we will be taking a review of the Legacy Officials to see what the numbers are like and may consider repurposing more ‘ghost towns’, however, the goal will be to preserve any place with human activity.

To be clear, if you're playing on a Legacy Server you will not be able to transfer to the new Official servers and Legacy servers will still receive total and complete support (just like the New Officials) in regards to Game Updates and future ARK Expansions, so you can expect to see future DLC servers added to the Legacy Cluster.

 

LUCKY

Ragnarok: Console debut and development
The new official release date for the Ragnarok Free DLC on consoles will be on the 8th of August when ARK launches for retail release. The team spent time discussing when would be the best time to release the map, for both technical reasons, as well as the experience itself, and this was the chosen date.

We understand that some may find this news frustrating as you’ve waited a long time for the map, however after conferring for quite a while on the topic, we believe this is the best decision for the map’s arrival on console as;

First of all, it allows the Ragnarok Developers to get the latest version of the Dev Kit and incorporate our latest changes to the game, which will have a significant impact on the console experience concerning performance, visual fidelity, and stability. Secondly, by focusing our technical workforce on the other aspects of the game (in addition to Ragnarok) such as server stability, crash exploits, duping, DDoS, we will be able to ensure a much smoother experience for when the map is available. Finally, with our recent decision in regards to whether there will be a wipe or not, this seems like the smartest decision, to avoid this awkward situation of where servers that have only just been online for a couple of weeks become legacy.

The new date will also result in the map debut on console will be much further ahead in its development than the map that was initially released on PC as the Ragnarok Developers have carried out a significant number of bug fixes, QOL changes on the map, and more! We will be doing a PC patch soon to upgrade to the latest version of the map (which is available in the Steam Workshop for Unofficial Servers!) so that you guys will also be able to enjoy their improvements!

 

Promo

PlayStation 4 Update!
It’s happening! Yes, we’re serious. We’re currently working on the latest PS4 patch with Abstraction at the moment, and while it’ll be tough, we should be set to release it this Friday (probably going to be a late evening patch). We’ll keep you posted how that goes! Thank you guys for being so patient with us over the past few weeks, we understand how frustrating it is not to receive updates, but now we are wrapped up with certification and this tight deadline, we’ll be able to go back to our standard development pipeline and therefore include you with our updates ;)

 

A86me

Console PC-Hosted Servers
Yup, you heard it. As of the 8th of August, we will finally have support for PC hosted dedicated servers on console. We won’t be renting or hosting them ourselves, it isn’t a commercial venture for us, but we will be doing the technical work needed to get this underway. Initially, they will be available via Nitrado! (It’ll come to other third party hosts once we go through this initial technical-iteration phase, as we want to ensure its stability).

These servers will be available on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and if you haven’t realised, here’s why this is so awesome:

No need for a second console to host private servers!
Complete access to all of ARKs custom server config settings, which will let players change the rules on their custom ARKs
The option to create cross ARK Clusters for the ultimate ARK Experience -- allowing travel across four Maps
Create a backup of server save files, allowing players to try something new without the fear of losing data
The servers will result in higher performance due to better optimisation
Player servers will now be able to support a larger pool of players, up to 100 concurrent users!
At a later date, these will also be Play Anywhere compatible!
For those of you wondering about repurposed console Legacy Official Servers, you will be able to take the save file and set up an Unofficial Server using this.

Nitrado will be contacting those who show interest in console servers on the 8th of August via email, you can notify them here: http://nitra.do/arkconsole

Let them know if you are keen, so they can properly estimate demand!

QueenG

Development Kit!
Oh modders, how we love you so much, we hope you can forgive us for the delay and understand as developers yourselves our reason for doing so. Fortunately, we come bearing good news! Jeremy is prepping the latest version of the Dev Kit right now (literally!) and we will have it available to download later today via GitHub, and soon after that via the Unreal Launcher when we are confident in its stability. You’ll be able to keep up with the latest information on the Unreal Forums in regards to any relevant/cool changes!

That should be what we wanted to discuss for today. Hopefully, it helps clear the air with what’s been going on and the direction we’re heading in. We're looking forward to a fun ARK launch with everyone in the weeks ahead!

All the best,

Studio Wildcard

Ark: Survival Evolved's design lead on huge server wipe reversal and new structure post-PC launch

http://www.pcgamer.com/ark-survival-evolveds-design-lead-on-huge-server-wipe-reversal-and-new-structure-post-pc-launch
By Joe Donnelly 3 days ago

 

PC Gamer: “So, in less than 24-hours Studio Wildcard has made a pretty explicit 180 regarding its decision, or lack thereof, to wipe its servers.”
The article was HUGE! I tried my best to break it down into bullet points and add the insights i thought our listeners and our hosts would appreciate. Esme

Jeremy Stieglitz answered:

 

  • “After speaking about our decision to wipe servers yesterday I went back and spoke to the team and asked: are we doing the right thing here? There are a lot of different opinions around the round table, so to speak, and we also talked to our community managers who are a little closer to the players than we are. And then, we also talked to our playtest team—the playtest team are actually like just players, they know the game really well, they're volunteers, they tend to take a look at our content, they're not employees so they come at it from an Ark fan standpoint more than anything else.”
  • He said they did another deep dive into the online debates about the wipe versus no wipe situation in Ark.
  • He shared that basically half the playerbase, even in PvP, that does not want to see this happen. It just doesn't seem like a good, smart move to, probably, piss off half the playerbase.
  • He is said One thing they definitely didn't want to do, and theyre definitely not doing, is not only having the old servers. They are seriously affected by this irreversible hack-a-thon.”
  • ultimately, they want players to have the option, new players especially, to experience the game as it's intended to be played so New servers are necessary
  • They need to take about ten percent of the servers down. Jeremy said Calling it a 'no wipe' is somewhat inaccurate, it'll be a wipe of servers that nobody plays on anymore. He said they are “ servers that literally no one has played on in weeks, these are basically ghost towns.”
  • Jeremy said “This is something we communicated to the playerbase from day one—we discussed wipe versus no wipe plans, we said that servers that have no player population may be marked for obsolescence.”
  • Regarding the type of wipe , he also said , “This is different from an actual full wipe, because one of the things you can do in Ark is: if you server is, god forbid, marked for obsolescence, you can take your stuff, your character, your items, your gear, and actually travel to another server, refugee style. That's a mechanic that actually makes it not just like: hey, your progress is gone. That wouldn't have been possible if we had just wiped everything, but that's not what would ever happen. With this approach, when we actually ran the numbers and scaled it to our requirements we decided we can do it. It's costly for us, it's not a small investment of resources or time.
  • Jeremy also states that the decision not to wipe was “ kicked off by talking to [the press]. It was talking to the press, that made us think: Are we really sure about this? That in turn spurred me to go back to the dev team, talk to them about it again, and it just chained out from there until we ultimately came to the U-turn scenario.
  • Jeremy stated that sometimes development is a pretty iterative process—sometimes we don't get it right first time.  He stated that they are known for not getting it right first time, among other things. He was also quoted saying “We maybe make a pretty fun game but we definitely don't have a 100 percent batting average, to say the least. That's human and okay, and I, at least in this case, think we didn't get the thinking right. Had we actually pulled the trigger on the gun? That wouldn't have been possible to un-shoot that bullet.”
  • They are basically looking at $100,000 per month additional to host the legacy servers, in addition to the $100,000 it costs a month to host the new servers.
  • Jeremy also said They they plan hire more help. He is quoted saying “ We also don't want to grow too much, too fast—that has its own problems. But I think the right time to grow if you're going to do it is when you launch retail. This was a combination of factors, there was also some technical scalability of our tools, of operating that amount of machines. We had to really think through the process and once we did, it's just on the right side of viable for us.
  • Regarding the initial plan to wipe servers, Jeremy added , “Could we have thought through that detail earlier? Certainly, sure. The difference is, sometimes you might chalk it up to laziness or flippancy but from a design standpoint you might say it's 'cleaner' for us to have less servers.”
  • He then added, “ People play games for emotional reasons, they play games to have fun. If you think about that from that perspective it makes sense. As far as why we didn't think of that earlier—we were maybe to focused on the abstracts of design, not enough on the needs of the playerbase. It was the wrong call—there's no other way to say it.”

    When asked during the interview

  • “What guarantees can you give players at this stage?”

    “So long as I'm at the company, I'll do everything I can to prevent that from happening. It's hard to predict, for example, will Wildcard always be around? Hopefully, but short of it being the company that I'm at, that I have any influence over, it's important to me. I wouldn't want to see what sort of hell was unleashed, should these worlds that people have built disappear. I don't think it'd be pretty. That's about as extreme as I can say: I think it would mean the end of what Ark is in its current form for that to happen. I think that would be very bad for all involved. I think, short of something very extreme happening to the company, it's certainly not in the game plan for any live operational status for Ark: Survival Evolved.”

Main Topic of the show:
Hot topics are welcomed!

CRUISING THE FORUMS EPISODE!

This means that you need to:

1: Head to the forums at https://survivetheark.com/, Reddit, or the Steam forums , twitter posts, Ark Facebook Group posts, etc and find a post you think would be great to talk about on the show this week !

2: Copy and paste the forum post below with the link.

3: Take the time to look of the forum posts of others and add any thoughts on the topics :)

What are your thoughts on this video about WC Gms Spawning in eggs? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r54ACwikkH0

(Queen) If this is true, then it sucks. Ruins the game for anyone who isn’t aware of how to get an ADMIN to spawn things in, ie. any new players, any “old” players who just keep to themselves. With the news of Legacy Servers and new servers being created with official release, this problem should be less of an issue.

So, as headline asks, what would you change in ARK to make it enjoyable again for majority of players?I have feeling that 80% of players don't experience more than 20% of game. Can't do bosses if you can't survive more than 7 days not to get raided, right?

ESME: My Input: I want less cross servers and more isolated. The duping is outrageous.

https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/214595-what-would-you-change-to-make-ark-enjoyable-again-for-most-players/

 

I asked Twitter for their feedback :

Joseph Clark‏ @bamacrimsntide
Flyers speed be able to be leveled up on pve and dedicated pve and singleplayer.

 


UpFromTheDepths‏ @UpFr0mTheDepths
Replying to @RatedArk
I'd change up a lot of the dino designs and animations. I want a better looking T. rex so bad.

 

Murican Zombie‏ @jgossett84
Dino ai. If a rex is stomping on the beach then I want my lesser dinos to haul ass. Better building on console. Tlc patch for older dinos

 

Our CRR Discord Said:

JelliedBigfoot - For xbox, I'd like to get some timed challenges each month, kill x dinos, players or gather x material, etc.
MrBackon - I would like to change the dinosaurs AI so that carnivores attacked other carnivores and not just herbivores. And it would be cool if herbivores lived in packs of 5 to 10 animals

Just a reminder! Best place to report bugs is in our discord! https://t.co/HeaAHgemcN

 

New Coastal Wyvern Canyon, Q/A and possible bug fixes!! Come hang out!! https://t.co/xfrp3GPd74

https://twitter.com/RagnarokDevs/status/886003377942913024

 

The team of people working on the Ragnarok map are amazing they stream development weekly and do a really fun Q&A. They are super light hearted in their stream and respond to pretty much all the questions, even the ones that they have no control over.

 

I really suggest following their streams and discord.

 

@everyone No doubt everyone is running into new issues since the patch for Ragnarok has been released for the Official DLC. Wildcard has made many changes over the course of them getting the game ready for launch out of early access. You'll see some issues, notably with the sky which we will get fixed over the course of the next few days.
https://gyazo.com/adad2a8d2cebb4723ab431380abaee4d
Good news is, we now have in our possession the new ARK Dev Kit 264.0, which means we will be getting the map up to speed with the necessary fixes as fast as possible. Please hold tight and bear with us while upgrade to the new systems on Ragnarok. heart to everyone! And thank you for your patience, you guys rock! :)
As always, we will keep you posted if any roadblocks are met, or changes need to be made!

“Hey guys it's Irish again!!

So I think it would be awesome if the flags had a new option wheel, on this option wheel would be new options such as Carry, Pick up, and unlock. The option "Carry" allows you to hold the flag In both of your hands and walk/run around with it, the option "Pick up" would allow you to pick up the flag and replace it anywhere you like. The "unlock" option would allow anyone access to the "Carry/Pickup" options.

(While holding the flag In your hands and in the event that you die while doing so, the flag drops on the ground in the upright position at the location of death)

Also when looking at the flag and close enough you could get the option to press "Y" for console to pick up the flag, and double tap "Y" to place the flag down.”

The thread had a few replies mainly centering around the possibility of playing a good old fashioned game of capture the flag using this suggestion. I love this idea. Who else would play capture the flag with me if this became an option?

TIME TO TALK GAMES!?

What have you been playing!? If not gaming, What have you been upto?

Name:Norwegian ( will have a steam up if you want Might be Overwatch, Battlefield, Ark or Overwatch)

Input:

Ark, covering on just how much I am enjoying playing on a player dedicated server. No wipe coming but will have new servers with old being labeled as legacy servers. https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/articles.html/ark-state-of-the-game-r486/

Name: QueenG

Input: Sniper Elite 4, Dragon Age: Origins,  

http://store.steampowered.com/app/312660/Sniper_Elite_4/

 

Name:Esme

Input:

We played Unturned on our first CRR Free to Play Fridays event!

I had fun playing as a group but I think we all felt like there was a gap in the progression where we were spoiled being able to punch trees to start crafting in ark, where you have to actually hunt through abandoned zombie infested zones to see if you could fund tools to get stuff. So it was fun for that, but if you wanted to really get into building or crafting it just takes a bit longer to get rolling. The combat is a bit wonky too . I feel like the weapons we get to defend ourselves are kinda janky. Lol

 

 

  • I bought Stardew Valley off of steam for $8.99 . I had been eyeballing it every time it appeared in my Steam Curated Queues
  • “You've inherited your grandfather's old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home? It won't be easy. Ever since Joja Corporation came to town, the old ways of life have all but disappeared. The community center, once the town's most vibrant hub of activity, now lies in shambles. But the valley seems full of opportunity. With a little dedication, you might just be the one to restore Stardew Valley to greatness!

    “The shattered remains of the mother planet Gaia float in stark contrast against the sky on nearby satellite planet, Archos, serving as inescapable evidence of the dark forces surrounding the world. As a lone explorer the wilderness, you must learn to understand the terrain, available natural resources, as well as how to domesticate the local creatures and build a home. You will need to harness and control the magical energy that courses through the planet, or you risk consumed by the looming darkness that permeates throughout the planet.”
  • Dark and Light is a vast sandbox RPG set in a world dominated by powerful elemental forces. Find your way in a meticulously crafted world, featuring breathtaking landscapes, a wide variety of mythical creatures, and limitless possibility to craft, build, and unlock dozens of powerful weapons, spells, and more.

More info on the memory-related crash on Xbox:

12:39 AM - 3 Jul 2017

Twit Longer:

More info on the memory-related crash on Xbox:
We have identified the source of the memory crash on Xbox. In attempts to improve the visual quality of creatures on console, the console is now unfortunately running out of memory. In areas where lots of dinos are grouped together (ie. large bases, caves), the console would crash back to dashboard.

We are currently further diagnosing the best response to this problem. We would obviously like to continue to visually improve ARKs creatures, but cannot do so at the expense of memory. We are doing some LOD (level of design) changes on creatures to hopefully find a happy middle ground between quality and functionality. Visually this could mean that it takes creature textures longer to load in than previous when entering an area with a large amount of creatures, but overall should still look better.

I'll continue to update you all on the situation when I have more information.

 

Jen‏ @bubblywums
In terms of the origami quality dinos on Xbox, it's only a temporary measure to stop the memory crash while we work on a permanent fix.

Dean Hall criticizes Ark pricing as fu**ing OUTRAGEOUS! Submitted by Zeroooo0

http://www.pcgamer.com/dean-hall-criticizes-arks-price-increase-as-ing-outrageous/

You know you screwed up when you got a former dev that is in development hell calling out your game. I agree though Ark especially the latest update is nowhere near ready for release. The devs should delay the game at least another year or a few months to iron out everything.

I would also argue the price is far too high knowing the shape the game is in. And if it will be released in this state.

ItsKony 5 hours ago
Didn't realize I should care so much about a former developer of DayZ, a failed game.
As for the price the developers have always been open about the price increasing on release, you had two years to buy the game so I'm not going to take someone crying about price seriously when they had more than enough chances to buy the game for 15-30 USD.
As for the price, is it worth it? 6.5k hours here and it's a title I've played longer than any other modern game out today and for the amount of content that it now includes, it's way more than what we got day 1 of the game.
That is something DayZ will never accomplish, let alone even announce any actual release date for their game. Getting comments from a guy who abandoned his game that still isn't released, lol k

Raiding is stupidly ez. By XtulkusX



The time invested in Def is 5000% more then Offence and still cant hold off even small raiding parties.

Not showing who destroyed things is bad for pvp.

Not showing what server someone is from is bad for pvp.

Before Server poop transfers you could retaliate.  Others on the server would not trust them.  You had to play smart in your raids.

After there is no pvp.  It is go scout a server, wait till late at night and offline raid.


Takes very little to raid a base with 40+ auto turrets.  ONLY the Alphas with 100s of turrets have a chance to hold out.

Auto Turrets do so little damage to Tames you can send on in take hits and pull it back.  Force feed to heal and do it again until turrets are empty then 5-6 C4 and you are in even if they 3-4 stack walls its stupidly ez to get in.  The time to make the C4 is SOOO small compared to the time to build the base.
pvpers call offline raiding pvp when its pve.
Wildcard needs to update the game where base can def with little effort and raiding takes planning and actual skill.
FYI this post is for Wildcard not the kiddies that think they are pvping in this game right now.

Giga - https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/124237-bounty-hacking-exploits-bugs-updated-as-of-28th-of-march-2017/

So they are paying people to turn over hacks.

I found this story on servive the ark.com and enjoyed it because of some comments about gaming with family in discord this week.

 

Stor

My story starts out with my daughter telling me about the game.  It seemed interesting, dinos, guns, building, etc.  But I'm not a PVP player so I think it's not for me.  A while goes by and my daughter keeps asking if I tried it out.  Finally I give in and try out the Xbox demo, I think it was an hour or something like that.  So I decide what the heck, I find a random server, create my character, spawn in, walk around...  seconds later raptors eat me alive!  I go wow, this is hard, spawn in again, live a few more minutes then... raptors!  Well, now this is interesting play until the limit goes out and well, that was it.  I was hooked, bought the game and have mostly played it since.

Please keep making sure that you keep us that play the game differently than what the goals of the game design are/were.  We love the game as well and want to keep playing and getting others to play as well.

How many duping mega tribe wars have to happen...

 

Before you folks will address the situation? For every faction or french touch there are hundreds or thousands of people just trying to have a good time with this game who get caught up and wiped by ppl who don't care about leaving a turtle holding 1500 c4 unattended. Do you know how fucking long it takes to grind that much c4 if you're not an alpha? If you guys want to wipe at release and you're afraid folks will be pissed I get it, but if you keep the veil of secrecy on the issue until then you're going to lose the bystanders who don't want to deal with the lack of integrity in your game AND the people who are still relying on your last word that a wipe wasn't coming who are trading (in some cases using cash money) to stay at a point they can be protected from the duping hordes.

And yes I know you take the responsibility on yourself to use real money to buy something for a game like this but be that as it may, those folks are gonna be royally pissed if you announce an all server wipe at the end of July right before release. They're just going to go elsewhere.

Everyone just tossed down foundations which repels future resource spawns or double stacking pillars and attaching a ladder or placing a pillar and tossing a saddle on it …. So yeah. The beautiful map on official is not friendly to new people at all and it's cool they didn't charge for it because I think many would be pissed :)

 

 

 

  • On the Rag official server a few of us are tribed up on, they have been having crashes followed by a roll back, which was cool when some egg thieves were making their rounds on the server and stealing eggs from people in their hatcheries, one through a open window and then POOF a roll back!

If anyone has some suggestions JOIN THE CRR AND LET US KNOW IN DISCHORD. Nerds.

A friend of mine got me back into HOTS. I’ve ran a bunch of matches with promo, and a few with Foe. I just finished my promotion matches. I ran all 10 with the same guy as a duo que, and when we got our ranks for the season, he got silver 5 and I got gold 3. Thanks blizz!

FB Reply  to my question about the new patch notes:

Brandon

I am really happy to see things winding down. While I enjoy new stuff the game needed heavy optimization work. I am hoping for a few more patches like this before August 8th.

 

Console players like myself do not have access to mods. So things like an option to ignore clipping is a major deal.

 

 

 

Mike

Added Spinosaurus roar.

Improved landing AI for Quetzal and Wyvern

Reduced tail collision on medium and large creatures.

Thanks the gods! Progress!

SCARLETTE DIARIES FOE

Dear Diary,

 

Things have been a little crazy lately! Some friends decided to go to a distant, unknown land and start a tribe there. I chose to join them, as it sounded like a ton of fun, and it has been! The people there are relatively friendly, and while it isn't easy, it's nice to struggle alongside other people. I've learned two things: building by the swamp means you get attacked constantly, and not all neighbors are nasty. I can't wait to continue the fun times with my tribemates!

 

Yours truly,

Scarlettefury

- Rebalanced speed gained per tamed level up on all dinos.

- Fixed issue where unconscious player could be pushed through terrain by a Kaprosuchus.

- Fixed issue where Tuso could grab through Iceberg geometry.

- Added cooldown to Tuso so that it’s ink ability cannot be spammed.

- Increased Trilobite spawns to be more common in shallow areas.

- Made it so that Fertilized eggs do not count towards the egg count in the given area. This was causing fertilized eggs to be laid and the dino to go on breeding cooldown but no actual egg was laid.

- Increased unstasis range on Trilobites, Eurypterids, and Ammonites.

- Deep Ocean Coel added, with increased unstasis range and bias towards being larger sized.

Promo - We dont want a TEK Feeding trough, we want a tier 2 feeding trough!

 

Submitted 8 hours ago by air401
Seriously, raising anything, especially on Scorched Earth with a regular trough is annoying as hell.
I literally have to get up every 2 hours to restock the feeding trough on scorched earth.
How is this even healthy?! Oh its nots, i over slept by 2 hours and my thyla and 2 rex's starved.
Thats even WITH full feeding troughx2 and perserving salts and COOKED MEAT on the dino's.
Still starved. I only have access to SE resources as i have no assets on the island map. So ya.
We need a tier 2 feeding trough..maybe a refrigerated one.
This new implement of a tek trough would be like us going from slingshot to assault rifle with nothing in between. Its idiotic.

 

 

BOBBY

Full Upfront Disclaimer: I like challenges. This entire post, at no point will be me trying to say "I want this particular thing to be easy. I'm not saying that. I think the "best" in a game should require effort. End game alpha tribes with the best stuff got there for a reason. I'm not arguing that. I believe in that. I get it.

This post is targeting one specific area of the game:

Breeding Imprints facilitate unhealthy gaming lifestyles.

We live in a time right now where gamers get a bad rap when it comes to health. And, for the most part, it's probably for good reason - we sit on our asses a lot, we don't get up and move nearly as much as we should, we typically eat junk because we're too engrossed in the game to make effort to cook or go out or whatever, and we're hunched over half the time like Mr Burns in our chairs with some pretty poor posture. I'm guilty of all of the above, so don't think I'm blaming anyone. And I know plenty of gamers do try to make effort to break this mold, and succeed. But my point is...

Health in gaming should be a bigger deal than it is. Unhealthy gamers are becoming kind of an epidemic. And it extends beyond just what I posted above - it can include big picture stuff, like addiction and shitty sleep cycles.

The sleep is a big one. Gamers are notorious for having bad sleep habits. And sleep is easily one of the biggest contributing factors to your overall health. Your mood, your body, your day to day life - sleep affects everything.

So why, then, do I feel like this is something worth posting about?

Now is the time where the developers are "fixing" areas of the game. A lot of fixes need to happen, and this has been brought up many times before. But I'm bringing it up again because this particular area is especially concerning. This isn't about "game balance" or "bug fixing" or any of that.

This is about changing one area of the game that actually supports incredibly unhealthy living.

The only way to get a 100% imprint on any dino legitimately (I say legitimate as in, not giving your account info to another player for help) is to essentially fuck up your life a bit. There's no other argument that can be said. On the 2 day breeds, it can be done with minimal fuckery but on a 4+ day breed, forget it. The only way you come close to full imprinting a 4+ day breed, is by seriously fucking up your lifestyle and promoting incredibly bad health habits.

The window of opportunity for imprinting is every approximate 4 hours. The only way to get a 100% imprint is to ensure you're hitting those 4 hour windows pretty frequently. What this means is you actually have to intentionally wake up in the middle of the night religiously every 3-4 hours just to do a fucking imprint. This isn't an opinion, this is a mathematical fact. This is how it's designed.

It's irresponsible and lazy. It shouldn't be this way. There's a difference between "difficult" and this. This is not difficult, this is damaging. This is not good.

IMO, it should be 8 hours. That's it. That's the only change needed. That's what it should be. That's actually healthy.

The reason this is in the game at all is because the majority of the developers are probably not trying to legitimately 100% imprint their breeds on as regular a basis as we, the players, are. Think about it. They play the game on developer time in a developer way. They play on private modded servers with everything juiced up.

To any Wildcard employee reading this, seriously ask yourself how much effort you've ever put in to trying to get a 100% imprint. Actually think about it. And if you've done it yourself, seriously consider how shitty it probably was. 100%ing a Quetz or a Rex or a Giga is not something anyone, even you, probably "had fun" doing given how frequently you had to probably get to the keyboard regardless of circumstance. Setting alarms every fucking night, crawling out of bed constantly just to click one simple button is not fun for anyone. No one enjoys missing imprints while they're at work. I want you to realize just how absurdly disruptive you've made this process, all in the name of "Well we can't imbalance the game too badly."

No, you're not imbalancing the game. You're just imbalancing our lives.

Breed times can stay the same. I think they're fine. Food consumption rates can stay the same. I don't care.

But having Imprints on a 4 hour window instead of an 8 hour window is a bad idea. You should be concerned about potentially promoting unhealthy lifestyles in your players.

Thanks for reading.

 

Opinion: It is irresponsible to design something that intentionally supports unhealthy gaming lifestyles to complete.

https://www.reddit.com/r/playark/comments/6iobym/opinion_it_is_irresponsible_to_design_something/

I think it is in a bit of a way, but if I remember correctly they have, should, or are going to be adding it to where anyone can help with the imprints… I heard this from a conversation that I held with some of the other PS4 members a little while back… I’ll do some more digging into this before the show!!! ^__^

Esme: I saw this article and thought it would make a good one! Im so happy your grabbed it up! It is a great post and I agree with where they are coming from!

https://www.reddit.com/r/playark/comments/6j4lv9/i_used_to_trust_you_wild_card/

I've been 100% in agreement with you on every single nerf and game adjustment. Turrets on platform saddles? Thank you. Cross server transfers? Thank you. Flyer nerf? Thank you. Etc. Etc. However by your recent club and movement speed nerf you have just created a pro big tribe environment in a game that previously allowed for small tribes and casuals to have a chance. My first server we built up me and 2 friends and we were wiped by the alpha for the offense of taming a quetzal. We proceeded to hurt them back. BADLY. Yet that was only possible because we were good at building quickly and silently and because we understood movement speed and the club. Were we able to wipe them? Of course not. At the end of the day a club is useless against a bred rex let alone a giga. On the island you can always find a guy by the time they can craft a fabricator, so getting explosives together was quite difficult as they wiped us daily. Yet we could and did hit them back and kill their tames as repayment for their treatment of the small tribes. Had we actually had to build up and use our tames vs their bred animals and our prim gear vs their Mastercraft and better stuff the game would of been over for us. We didn't have to do so however. We were able to creep up on their scrub players with a club and walk away with gear enough to do some damage. The club WAS the great equalizer. It was the thing that made a fight an actual battle of skill and not a bigger tribe take all scenario every time. I carry a pike, a club, and a whip at all times. All 3 weapons can counter the others and almost every other weapon in the game if used properly. Only the club and the whip are cheap however and by nerfing one of them you are causing a HUGE difference in the ability of the "little guy" to play what is at this point the most amazing game I've ever played.

Just use them forums. Visit www.survivetheark.com you never know what you’ll find.  I found a old thread about a guy who was breeding doe-doe’s for a round robin tourney in his server.  And he was asking if he should imprint. The answer that came back was yes. But a broader discussion opened up about making it cross server.

 

I also found someone who wanted people to Critique their art (mostly dino related sketches).

 

You just never know what you're going to find.  And with Ragnarock coming to the serves it’s as good a time as any.

  1. The Anger Room
    SMASH
    Do you ever get so angry that you could just break something? Have you ACTUALLY broken something in anger? Then you’re the perfect customer for the “Anger Room.” The idea is simple: you pick the blunt instrument of your choice (a bat, golf club, etc.) and are thrown into a room with a few pieces of junk furniture (televisions and other breakables in particular). And then… You smash to your heart’s desire. It’s $25 for every 5 minutes, but that’s probably as long as most would need. Properly smashing things should wear most people out pretty quick.

 

3. Cheese-Sculpting Business

Do you love cheese? Bet you don't like it as much as Sarah "The Cheese Lady" Kaufmann, who makes her living as a traveling cheese sculptor.

She creates cheddar cheese carvings for grocery stores, sporting events, festivals, photo shoots and any other business or event that needs a giant hunk of cheese. Kaufmann has carved everything from a scene of the first moon landing to the Chicago skyline.

Though she makes most of her money carving cheese, Kaufmann also hosts seminars, where she informs audiences about the art and traditions of cheese making.

WHO WANTS TO GIVE IT A GO because we have no foe!? _____________________
Dear Diary,

I've been feeling adventurous lately, so I decided to pack my bags and go on as trip across the island. I took my newly saddled Equus, and hit the road. I've been having the time of my life! Thanks to the portable mortar and pestle in my horse's saddle, I've been able to make narcotics and tame as I go, so now I have a small dino army following me. I try to tame one new creature from every biome, kind of like souvenirs. I haven't hit the snow biome yet, but I certainly plan to! I can't wait to get my hands on some of the sheep I've heard so much about!

Yours truly,

Scarlette Fury

Hey guys!
Just have a question for those who play exclusively on Single Player, whether it's PC, Xbox, or PS4:
Have you ever noticed a situation where there is a serious lack of Wild Dinos or that they stop respawning?
Let me know what your experiences are like. We're currently focusing a lot on single player and fixing a number of bugs related to it, and this is something that is in our pipeline for player dedicated (on console) but we want to see whether it occurs on Single Player too. So far we haven't had many reports about it to indicate that.

ARK AT E3: RELEASE DATE, PRE-ORDER, RAGNAROK, GRIFFIN, & XBOX ONE X!
Hello, Survivors! :Jerbhi:

We have some very exciting news to share with you all today! :Jerblove:

ARK: Survival Evolved has entered its final phase of core production, and will hit worldwide retail and digital release on August the 8th, 2017 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.

The past two years have been one heck of a journey! Millions of ARK players worldwide have built gigantic bases, captured and trained armies of dinosaurs, crafted armories full of weapons and eaten billion of pounds of berries. With your help, we're now about to reach the completion of core content for ARK: Survival Evolved and release the full game to the world!

That was just the beginning; now we'll be entering the next phase of our journey. Players who have been with us throughout this early access program and were excited with the launch of each update, have even more reason to be excited! ARK is going to become even more fun with surprise new content at launch and beyond, as we continue to have a massive amount of additional gameplay, creatures, and story elements in the works.

Pre-Orders and Limited Collector’s Edition!

There are three ways to get your dino-fix with ARK: Survival Evolved, all of which are now available to pre-order for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

ARK: Survival Evolved ($59.99 USD)

This base game includes everything a burgeoning Jurassic adventurer needs to get started in the world of ARK. It's the core game, and all free content released up to this point, offering up hundreds of hours of gameplay to players.

ARK: Survival Evolved - Explorer's Edition ($99.99 USD)

The Explorer's Edition takes the base game and adds even MORE - introducing a Season Pass that will grant access to all expansion packs, starting with Scorched Earth (available now) and including more packs launching later this year and into 2018.

ARK: Survival Evolved - Limited Collector's Edition ($159.99 USD)

The ultimate ARK fan's dream, the limited Collector's Edition is a collectible faux-wooden chest box that contains the ARK Explorer’s Edition (base game + Season Pass) along with...

A handcrafted leather-bound Explorer's Notebook, featuring the Dossiers of every in-game creature
An official ARK necklace
A cloth map of the ARK island
A poster of the Studio Wildcard development team
The official ARK: Survival Evolved soundtrack, recorded live at Abbey Road with the Philharmonia Orchestra
Manufactured by Triforce, the best designer of high-quality video game collectibles!
As of now, picking up this package is the only way to get the exclusive bonus items, however, if we’re able to sell out the initial stock, we will order another set that includes all of the above, minus the game. The reason we’re not able to do this currently is due to the high cost of producing these physical products.

Visit www.playark.com now to pre-order ARK: Survival Evolved and get your hands on the Limited Collector's Edition!

Ruins to not only explore but that can also be incorporated into base builds
A vast ocean with its own ecosystem
Upcoming future desert biome to find and tame creatures
Upcoming Explorer Notes that hold the key to Ragnarok's secrets and history
Introducing the Griffin!

Nym Reads:
A new Dino Dossier has been revealed, this one is everyone's favourite gallant glider, the Griffin!

Common name: Griffin
Species: Gryphon Magnificum
Time: Unknown
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament: Aggressive

Wild
Gryphon Magnificum is undoubtedly a sight to behold. Many ancient myths tell of various depictions of the Griffin over the ages, but what is never disputed is its majestic and mysterious nature. With the front half of an eagle and the back half of a lion, it is as if these two creatures somehow fused together to form a superior land and air predator.

While one's first instinct might be to approach the creature and marvel at its beauty, that would be a very poor decision. Its range of attacks makes it one of the more versatile predators I’ve witnessed. If its presence alone isn't enough to intimidate potential hunters, it has the ability to dive from the sky to the ground with such force that it inflicts damage to anyone unfortunate enough to be below it, or carry its momentum back into a rapid uplift.

Domesticated
The idea of pacifying such a beast is nothing to scoff at. It's highly independent nature and disinterest with interacting with humans combined with its power and strength make the Griffin a challenge to domesticate. However, there have been those who are fearless enough to attempt and succeed at this miraculous feat. Once tamed, riding atop a Griffin along with a tribe mate passenger, dashing through the air at high speeds, is a prize in and of itself.

Xbox One X, Crossbuy, and Crossplay!

We were also excited to unveil that this November, ARK will be a Launch Title on the Xbox One X! We are currently aiming to have the game performing on the EPIC Settings at 60 FPS, with every graphical effect including TrueSky. With this, we’re also excited to reveal that the game will be ready on Xbox Play Anywhere, so Xbox Owners will be able to play ARK on whichever platform they own, be it a Windows 10 PC, Xbox One, or the Xbox One X. This will also allow us to introduce crossplay between the 3 platforms! Keep in mind that this is a retroactive crossbuy, so if you already own ARK on the Xbox One, you automatically get it on the Xbox One X and the Windows 10 store, and will remain crossbuy going forward too! Plus as we announced yesterday, the Xbox versions and Windows 10 store version can all play together on the same servers using crossplay! So get ready to partner up with your tribemates on whichever Microsoft platform you want to survive on :)

That’s all for now guys! Thank you so much for all the support the past 2 years, and we hope you are excited as we are about the news. As always, there’s still more planned for the ARK universe, both leading up to and beyond the August 8 launch. Survivors on all platforms can look forward to a lot more going forward, so stay tuned!

Esme : Pillar changes

Posted Wednesday at 02:06 AM
Hey guys,

Lone Pillars that are connected to non-spawn blocking structures will be destroyed on Official Servers after 12 hours.Decay time is otherwise unaffected for all other types of structures. Our intent is for players who claim land to make use of the land, and not just hold it. We'll be monitoring this change to see whether it has an effect on pillar claiming and make changes as necessary. This change is only on our Official Servers, but Unofficial Servers will soon gain the functionality to make this change.

Thanks,

Teady Reading Reading in RED WCCF
OGBOBBY is readying Jesse

One of the interviews to come out of E32017 was with Kai Powell of WCCFTech & Co-Founder and Co-Creative Director Jesse Rapczak
According to SteamSpy, there are roughly five million owners on Steam alone with other millions playing the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. ARK: Survival Evolved is also about to launch on the Windows 10 Store, where it will have cross-buy and cross-play functionality with the Xbox One version.
Retailers Ark will be available at:
ARK: In the US it’ll be GameStop, Best Buy, and Walmart. It’s not going to go on store shelves, it’s a pre-order only thing. People will go to our website and it’ll direct you the various retailers. People are already putting through orders today. It’s in limited quantity so people have got to get on it, if we sell out we’ll do another run.

WCCF: As far as the expansion stuff goes with the season pass, have you already narrowed down which two modding communities you are going to work with for the other two expansions?

ARK: Oh, that’s not a mod, that’s internal development, just like Scorched Earth was. That’s separate from our official mods. All the official mods are free content, we had The Centre, Primitive Plus and now Ragnarok, those are free updates on all platforms. The expansion packs are the ARK internal dev team creating new, large expansions to the game. The price point is twenty dollars each on those, so the actual season pass is a pretty good deal, it amounts to buy one get one free on the season pass.

WCCF: For people that got into ARK: Survival Evolved with the Early Access, say PlayStation 4 where they got the early access game as well as Scorched Earth, is there any sort of promotion or incentive to get the other two expansions at a reduced price?

ARK: Not currently, although, if they do buy them at full price they are still getting the cheapest version of them, it’s not really possible to get it that cheap. We recognize that a lot of people have already bought the game so one thing we are going to try to do is with the Collector’s Edition and stuff like that is to maybe figure out other ways to get that to people where they don’t have to buy the game again and stuff like that. Also, I think people really liked Scorched Earth, it has even higher reviews than the base game, but I think it speaks to the different things we put into that versus the base game. People play the base game a certain way, it has the most players, but then you install Scorched Earth and you’ve got a different experience altogether and that’s the same type of thing we are going to do for the next expansion. Add a lot of new gameplay mechanics, new creatures and all sort of stuff. We’ll play that one by ear in terms of having any specials down the road, but typically like any other game, we’ll do sales and stuff like that after its initially launched.

WCCF: And this is going to be really tough to narrow a time, especially when we you are working so much to get the base game all ready for the August release, but do you have a rough timetable for when those two expansions drop?

ARK: The first one is likely to be before the end of the year, so pretty soon after launch. The next one will be coming sometime next year, so our roadmap for the expansion takes us through the end of 2018. I’m excited to talk about the next expansion but you’ll have to wait until after we actually launch ARK: Survival Evolved!

WCCF: Do you guys have any plans to bring ARK: Survival Evolved to the Nintendo Switch?

No concrete plans as of yet. We all have one around our offices and we are excited about mobile gaming in general, but nothing to announce at this time.

 

[Switching topic to the official mod Ragnarok, available now on PC and coming to consoles as well]

 

ARK: Ragnarok
By July 4th weekend we’ll have it for console players as well, and we collaborated with them to add a new creature.
They added some mod versions of creatures like ice wyverns and the fire golem.
We created the gryphon in-house and put that on the map as an extra piece of content as well. It’s going to be one of the biggest official mods, I think.
There’s so much new content like that, new creatures that are transferable to other servers and also the map itself. It’s about 50% done right now.
Their plan is to finish it up over the next several months and be ready around launch time with another full map.
This is our plan for the future too, to continue to find new content that the community is creating and trying to bring the best stuff to the console gamers as well.

WCCF: How can gamers access Ragnarok once it goes live on July 4th?

ARK: If you are on console it will automatically download as an update. It’s something where you can just join the server and it’ll load that map. On PC you can download the DLC from our Steam page, it’s available as of today. Or if you join a server it will automatically prompt you to download the DLC.

WCCF: Are you guys planning on adding more building things and styles?

ARK: Not before launch. We have a couple… I think we have a couple structures in our upcoming patch, but we are not planning to do any more building tiers or styles prior to launch. We do have a couple surprises for the end game content, some new Engrams that you can get but nothing major.

WCCF: As a quick follow-up, what about bridges?

ARK: Bridges will probably be post-launch. Honestly, there’s a really cool bridge mod out there, it’s a dynamic bridge mod, so much so that I know Jeremy looked at it and he was totally impressed with what the guy did. I would say for now go check out that mod but maybe after launch, we’ll try to incorporate something similar, but that mod is really cool so I’m going to try and publicize that mod as much as possible. If you search ‘Dynamic Bridge Mod’ in the Steam Workshop you’ll find it. I think it is the number one most popular mod download right now.

WCCF: Any changes to PVE before ARK: Survival Evolved’s release?

ARK: No major changes that we are planning before release.

WCCF: Will you be reducing the breeding time on dinos to make them more doable for the general player-base?

ARK: I haven’t heard any plans to do that. We view breeding as more of a hardcore feature and, you know, there’s a lot of stuff that breeding brings like mutation to tailor the type of stats your dino has to make it powerful. And so, we’ve always felt that that’s something that is appropriate that you put a lot of time in it to get those type of results, but players have found their own kind of way where people have jobs as breeders, and they kind of do that for the people that don’t have the time via trading and stuff like that. We are happy with how that’s working right now and we don’t really want to upset that balance too much. You can’t get one hundred percent ??? (25:3) on a dino which is the perfect dino, and if that’s too easy then it really throws off the balance of the server, PVP and everything like that. I feel like it’s in a good spot, even if it is an investment. You can trade for a perfect dino and that can be your role.

WCCF: Why are existing hairstyles that were previously available now hidden behind achievements?

ARK: Well, we wanted to give people a reward for hitting achievements on all platforms. We always intended hairstyles and emotes to be a reward for that, and just to be transparent, we never hooked them up originally, we only put them up to make sure people liked them and that the system was working. Once we proved that out, we wanted to make sure there were some rewards for people doing the achievements in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Name: Esme
Input:
I really like the cleaned up Login in screen and tribe screen and options screens.
I like the fact that they show online tribe members now !
I'm on the fence about the new radial menu layering but I don't know how they could do it any better other than making the most detrimental choices like neutering and unclaiming in a layer of its own and not mixed it with the naming and behavior options.
I still wish they would add a tribe communication Area in the tribe UI where we can leave a tribe message etc. I hate that we don't have that.
The new Ragnarok ma[ is absolutely GORGEOUS . I am shocked that they offered it up without it being finished. The zones that are finished are super polished. The amount of detail is absolutely amazing.
I think it is absolute Crap that we as PC players do not get a collector's edition? SOOOOOOO ass backwards?
I love the new Megatherium Dino. It is sooo damn cute.
I made a CRR PvE tribe on a Ragnarok Official server and I have noticed a lot of complaints coming through about dino spawns being blocked by players, oil veins being blocked, etc. I personally have not made it to any level that it concerns me as I started from scratch earlier this week. If it's true, that's obviously going to have to be fixed as it's already causing drama.

submitted by Roseveld
Wildcard, can we make Rafts "demolish allowed" when tribes are inactive?

Official PVP Servers are being cluttered with rafts of tribes who have already long left servers. It goes to the point that some spots on the map are no longer enjoyable for active players. You simply can no longer navigate through certain sections of the map without getting constantly stuck!!
The center maps are obviously worse vs. the Island since rafts play a much bigger role there. BUT HOLY SH*T , please check No-Tame Center servers and be prepared to be baffled. Wish I could show some screenshots. (might post some later when back from work)
Some tribes have used rafts to make walking bridges from one island to the other , blocking complete waterways to sail through. Not to mention that with the X3 and X4 weekends people have been spamming rafts non stop for XP grind to level faster.
Active players do not bother farming explosives to blow up naked rafts as there is no gain. The Leedsichthys has been clocking overtime but can not handle this amount of rafts, certainly not in shallow shores where it can not reach the graveyards of rafts.
I know rafts do not get a lot of love as they are lost in the spaghetti code and classified as "Tame with platform" and recently lost their Vaults capacity.
Please Wildcard make the rafts "Demolish allowed" when tribes are no longer active. Give them the longest metal timer or even longer. But please give us a possibility to stop the Pollution of our seas.

PVE Offline Raid Protection being used for trolling

https://www.reddit.com/r/ARK/comments/6g1i4u/survivor_classes_in_ark_which_class_are_you/?st=J3PD4AP1&sh=7aa2bb3c

Wildcard unintentionally created hero classes in ARK:

The Nudists (Noobs) The Lone Wolves (Solo/2 player partnerships) The Wolfpack (Local Tribes) The Covenant (Big Tribes) The Hive (Cross Server Raiders) The Pirates (Griefers)

The Nudists (Noobs): Excels at death and no-shirt, no-shoes but still gets service. Typically a temporary class, this type of survivor can progress to a different class after hours of repeated dying and learning. Or they will just leave their barely clothed unconscious carcass on the island to go back to playing COD or some EA sports game.

The Wolfpack (Local Tribes): Excels at communication and having fun. These survivors are usually part of a nerdy group of friends that mostly know each other in real life or from other games. They tend to spend a lot of time enjoying hobbies such as role-playing and team-killing.
One of the most enjoyable but niche class of survivors.

The Lone Wolves (Solo/2 player partnerships): Many survivors try this class, but it is difficult to master. They excel at negotiating and stealth. Typically they don't like playing with strangers and most of their friends don't play ark so they can't form a Wolfpack. They might have one buddy who they partner with to survive against all odds. The successful Lone Wolves are highly individually skilled.

The Covenant (Big Tribes): The most common survivor (not including temporary Nudists). They excel at organization and team-based taming. They are usually formed from survivors who switched from the previous classes and decided to follow one or more leaders. The leaders typically have strict rules that keep the tribe safe and strong, but as a consequence many leaders also tend to be snarky and self-absorbed. The tribe members can have a range of skills and personalities, but most enjoy pleasing their leader to move up in the ranks.

The Pirates (Griefers): These survivors excel at killing tames and being a**holes and are proud of it. They play ark like it's team deathmatch, they prefer not to spend time taming as it is quicker to club/tranq people. Unified servers tend to reduce the number of griefers.

The Hive (Cross Server Raiders): These survivors excel at transportation and raiding. They are too large for a single leader and usually function in a hive mentality, with each member working towards the common goal of causing a massive shit-storm.

https://kotaku.com/the-many-kinds-of-poop-in-ark-survival-evolved-1795315471

Excerpt from the article by Matt Wales at Kotaku

“I contacted Wildcard to find out the reason for Ark’s negligence in the realm of aquatic expulsions. According to lead designer Jeremy Stieglitz, it’s because realistic sea poop is just too damn hard to represent as a single item in-game.

“In the case of fish,” says Stieglitz, “it tends to be a long thin strand. In the case of certain marine mammals like whales, it looks like a big blast of dirty water. Either way, it would be difficult to properly represent in-game as something the player could interact with.”

 

According to the article Stieglitz also let slip that working toilets will be coming to Ark’s v258 update, currently scheduled to arrive on May 29. And Jeremy is quoted saying “How can you possibly consider your Tribe ‘civilized’ until it has indoor plumbing?!”

 

 

  • We will also be getting  a new poop-o-meter that will be added to Ark’s HUD.
  • When it appears you know that youre going to have to go to the bathroom.
  • You will then need to find your toilet, sit down, then press the ‘defecate’ key.
  • When you’re done, stand up and flush, and your BM will be converted into a sizable quantity of compost. You’ll even get a special post-expulsion ‘refreshed’ status XP boost.
  • They also discussed Pee during the interview .
  • Jeremy told Matt that there was, at one stage in development, significant debate around whether Ark’s player characters should urinate as well as defecate. Ultimately, however, the team decided against it, on the grounds that a flailing stream of pee wouldn’t look good “on the move.”
