Title: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on November 28, 2015, 03:53:35 pm
In case you guys have the game, and would be interested, I am currently running a server on the same system that handles Minecraft.  To connect to it just add theboard.synchro.net to your Steam favorite servers.  This can be done from the Steam main screen by selecting Servers under the View menu.  Then in ARK, just choose Favorites under the server selection.  The server will be listed as The ARK and the password is letmein.

Currently it is just my brother and I on it for our first play through, and we are still learning the game.  We started on the island on the SW corner of the map.  We are on the eastern tip of it.  I actually think we are very close to one of the default spawn points (W2?), but not positive about that.

lol, been playing it a couple of weeks on the Flamegoat server. fun but my ISP seems to hate it with a passion =P

btw, they updated today, they do that at random, kinda annoying

Yeah, I know.  They update quite frequently.  It's a good thing, but I need to setup something when I can run the server update as a nightly job.

actually got on the server...and got stuck in in rocks, which seems the only way to get unstuck is to die out...by hunger... lol

Nice :)

Though, the spawn points are standard, so not sure what happened there.  It is still early access :)

Once you get a bed made, you can spawn back to it. Btw, server might need a update, todays might be blocking it from showing up in the IGB

I updated it last night to 226.1.  Is it still not showing up for you?  Are you still stuck in a rock?
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Kuges on December 02, 2015, 11:32:46 am
Out of the rock, took about 10 hours to die from hunger =D  will see if it shows up when I get home tonight

Who is Firewater? and is it ok to demolish a half built hut on the beach that hasn't been touched for a week that said person built? (game won't let me put of fencing on the cliff above it because of "hostile tribe foundations in area" )

That is the name of the Tribe my brother created that we are in.  Yes, you can break anything you need.  We'll have to add you to the tribe when I see you online.  We started out on Crag Island, and still have a small base on the southern tip of it. I recently moved to Deep Island, and am setting up near the lake there.  Have a small area secured there, and a handful of dinos.  I'm usually on in the evenings, but if you let me know what time you're on, I can hop on then.

I'll probably be on during tuesday evening ..if it lets me see the server (home ISP is crap)

Okay, I will keep an eye out for you.

btw - You are welcome to anything in the chests.

added a few walls and bits to the structure chest. Seems to be a Bronto stuck on the compound atm. Dinos are all topped off on food, atm. made some spark powder, and think I've made more arrows than I used today (this place seems to be raptor city).

Was looking to wall off the entire valley where we are, but that is going to be a long term project :)  Put a gate and going to start to lay the base of the walls.  Right now I am using a metal base, and stone wall.  Seeing the outer wall for the valley will probably not be done anytime soon, I might expand the walls around our current structure, as it is way too cramped atm.  Probably should change it to wood too.  It was just something I quickly put up when I first got there.

I have invested most of my engrams on structure items up to this point.  Also, make sure you check the bookcase for blueprints before investing any points of your own, as you may just be able to use the blueprint.  I'm sure you saw it there, but just letting you know in case you didn't.

Just make a list of what you want made =)
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 10, 2015, 10:23:41 pm
I enlarged the inner fenced in area, and put in a behemoth gate so that we could keep all of the dinos inside, and it will give us a little more room.  I just used wood for that, but planning to use all stone walls for the outer fence.  I'm probably going to to only start with a single wall high just to lay outer the ring, but we will probably want to go 4 walls up or higher at some point.  Was going to use metal bases, but I guess we could do stone bases as well.  Was just thinking metal because the dinos can't damage it, and it is only 5 ingots per base.

Tripped a fuse at the house.  Server should be back in a min.  We will see how it comes back after an improper shutdown.  Think it auto saves every 15 minutes.

You having issues getting in?  It reverted to a few minutes prior to the power outage.

Heading out to our daughter's Christmas program, but will be on later.  Got the frog, so hopefully that will help on the cement paste.

Got in finially, have fun


And just found a Blueprint for a raptor saddle
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 11, 2015, 08:56:58 pm
I have that engram too.  Sorry, should have made at least one.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Kuges on December 15, 2015, 05:57:11 pm
Ok, snagged me a flyer today, can't make a saddle yet, so let me know what bits are needed for one and I'll round them up. Think I finially have all the big guys set to not help when someone is attacked (getting tired of haveing to park Bobo and Bill) and Petra, who ends up flying off all over.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 15, 2015, 07:31:41 pm
Nice.  I went ahead and placed a saddle on him.

Bill especially is hard to position.  It will be nice when the outer wall is complete and we build enough within it to prevent spawns.

Add a new member to the club...she was wondering outside the front gates when I logged in, so I bagged and tagged her.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 17, 2015, 12:12:40 am
Nice.  Last one of those I had was killed by ants that flew over the wall.

Tamed a female carno, so they are now mate boosted when you take them out together.  Also made a saddle for Carl, so he can now be ridden.  Need to boost his stamina, as it takes a bit to recharge.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Kuges on December 17, 2015, 09:23:33 pm
Not sure how the mate bonus works...but took the Pred gang out 3 times today ...2 Rex's spawned in the valley, and they didn't seem to have a problem with any of them > (second one was after dark, I took Luke to grab a supply crate that landed in the pond there. after remounted, the ground started shaking, I turned on the torch and looked around, and there was a Rex bearing down on me just out of the light, lol, ran back and got the Meat Boys , lol)
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 17, 2015, 10:13:41 pm
I think the mate boost gives a 30% bonus to all stats of each boosted dino, which is a pretty nice boost.  I normally run around with two carnos and a few raptors, and I can normally take on a pretty good number of dinos at a time.  There is obviously a limit though.  Almost lost one of the carnos the other day on the beach, as I just seemed to agro everything on the beach at once, including about 4-5 dimos, which were the biggest issues, as they are hard to hit.

The carno is nice to use, but not sure if I currently like the stamina on it.  Might be better if I put levels into it, but not sure if it is worth skipping HP and dmg.  I might just keep the raptor as the main mount, and let the carnos follow, as they don't have the stamina issues when you are not riding them.  The mount I want to try is the saber, but haven't been successful grabbing one of those yet.

We now have a bridge across the river to the north.  Will make moving dinos back and forth easier and safer.  Also, one more level to Bronto saddle.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Kuges on December 19, 2015, 08:28:29 pm
Ok, some more walls made. And think I have almost everyone parked and put on passive again, don't know if you changed everyone, or something that the update did. Bill is alot easier to park with the saddle, lol. just have to exit off the tail for fall damage.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 19, 2015, 11:29:46 pm
Yeah, I noticed they all seamed to aggro today.  Might have been the update.  We're about half done with the first level of the walls.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved

Fabricator built.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 24, 2015, 01:04:35 am
There is a second saber and bird, both with saddles.  Also got a second Rex, but only Bob has a saddle atm.

Working on a new structure.  Just getting all of the pillars lined up for the foundation right now.  Thatch is just there to as we line them up but will be replaced with stone.  Setting it up, so we have a permanent place to setup the generator and electrical items, as I do not want to set that up in the current structure.

Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 28, 2015, 02:53:38 pm
The first walled off area of the new building is in place, and I have already put in several of the crafting stations in it for use.  I will put in more of the storage tonight, and will start to move some of the items there shortly.  This is only one room of a larger building, but setting it up so we can start using it, as the full building will take a while to complete.  The next room I will be doing will be the one to hold the generator, so that we can start to setup some refrigerators, lights, etc.

What do you need made?
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 28, 2015, 08:22:01 pm
Right now, it is mainly stone ceilings and walls.  So that is a lot of wood and stone.
Title: Re: ARK: Survival Evolved
Post by: Baltazar on December 29, 2015, 12:30:34 am
Industrial grill in place in new building.  Like the fabricator, you place 1 gas in the inventory and you turn it on. It will run for 20 minutes on the 1 gas.  It cooks a lot of meat in that time.  I would not put in more than one gas, as you do not want it burning more if you forget to turn it off.  No need to turn it off if only feeding it one gas at a time, as you may need it again within the 20 minute run time.

Saw that, but didn't get to use it today. took Bob out hunting for a bit, but then got called into work on my day off. After was too annoyed to try to get the game to let me log in (usually takes about 15mins) Tomarrow, might be busy after work, might be movieng to housesit for 2 weeks, so logins will be a breeze.
