So, while raw was busy doing what young virile German lads do on a workday night, me and thesoup decided to use our valuable time for more fulfilling activities - taming more virtual dinosaurs!

First of course we needed more berries so that our dedicated meth cook could prepare powerful narcotics, so a-foraging we went.

After which thesoup defeated a mighty Trike in a match of fisticuffs and we pumped it full of dope and started the brainwashing (all the while fending off hungry beggars and other untermenschen, rightfully afraid of our trained German Nazi murder raptor)

Our valiant efforts were of course eventually rewarded with success.

And our quickly growing family welcomed its newest member, kingcomrade , the overweight Triceratops

After which thesoup bailed on me and I had to toil on my own enlarging our garage to fit KC's fat kwan ass.

I hope raw will be delighted to log in and find himself well fed, watered, and with a brand new set of leather clothes I took the liberty of making for him and dressing him into.

Gotta say kingcomrade looks pretty badass with that saddle.

For reference, we're at levels 13 (raw), 21 (moi) and 23 (evdk) now. Once I reach level 35 is when the fun begins because that is when we will finally have saddles for flying dinosaurs. And yes, you can fly on them in this game.:incline:

The past two days have been really dark for us. We lost JarlFrank and kingcomrade. We tamed another raptor to replace JarlFrank and called her SMA, but she died 10 minutes later. Right now we're dinoless and I got griefed while taming a ptero and I lost a ton of good stuff.
But we will endure and in enduring grow strong. We were also joined by Hoaxmetal and hopefully CreamyBlood if he can sort out whatever stops him from connecting. The codexian odyssey continues.

raw when are you back? hoax and craemy need invites

I really enjoyed this game but the balance is a bit shit. It's way too easy to grief the shit AI while people are offline and the bottle neck of progression being tied to 3 caves is a little lackluster.

Looking forward to see where this game goes in the next few months and years.
Very fun to dick around with every 10 patches or so with friends to see whats new.

It didn't even take 24h hours and I was disposed of. The King is dead long live the King. I'll be back next week thesoup.
Well things have changed. We are on a private server now. You'll get the details when you come back.

Looks like a shitty minecraft-Haven&Hearth mix. I'd rather stay with H&H though, specially since H&H2 gets released today.

Thanks to my godlike powers, evdk did a short excursion to the Olymp.

The bastards from the Tribe of Friendship (or something) violated our NAP and we rased their pitiful base to the ground.

Meanwhile, Menckenstein reinforced our Tribe.

Our base is rapidly expanding. To the left we have the aviarium and to the right is evdk's boudoir (who is pretty shit at wiring so only his house gets electric light - this has been fixed by Bruticis and his arguably superior wiring skills)

This game is quite fun, but I'll probably not play it until I get a new laptop one day (maybe the game will be finished at the time too? I'm not upgrading any time soon), because playing on minimum settings in low resolution (should run better, bad optimization?) is... very prosperous. Doesn't take away from the gameplay, but... I guess I'd rather leave it for better times.

It's ok guys, the resources used to make the DLC appeared out of thin air and couldn't have been used to finish the base game for mysterious reasons. So really there's nothing wrong with this at all.

I like how the original post is well organized while the dev response is some haphazard rage post

Planned Core Features include, among many other things:

- Mac and Linux versions
- Procedurally Generated ARK's
- 40+ more creatures to reach well over 100, with essentially every major category of extinct animal represented in some way
- More saddle types including saddle armor tiers and saddles with powerful weapons mounted on them
- Gas-powered Vehicles
- Human/Dino Body-Paints
- Enhanced building mechanics to evolve ARK into one of the best straight-up builder games out there
- More underwater biome/ecosystem complexity, including support for vacuum-sealed underwater bases
- Lots more items, weapons, armors and further advanced tech tiers
- More item skins, limited run event skins
- More bosses and the end-game cycle including the Ultimate Life Form & Ascension
- More biome types, including deserts, snow regions, swamps, and more.
- Steam Economy Support for Statistical Items (Need some Steam API functionality for this from Valve!)
- Way more plants and more detailed plant biology systems/farming systems
- More statistical modelling of status illnesses/diseases (both player and creature)
- Better SFX, more Music, Better UI's, Better Gamepad support (i.e. UI button shortcut callouts), Better VR support (i.e. HMD gun-aim option)

In addition to zillions of bug fixes, intensive performance improvements, mega iterative polishing, and what have you. The game will sparkle like a shiny diamond before it is considered ready for Full Release, and even then we plan on a long-term post-Release content lifecycle, with specialized ARK's on the drawing board.”
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“Everything described on the full Features List is in the Early Access version right now -- not all 100% polished, but designed to be fun. Over the next year, the game will be rapidly iterated on with updates usually coming 3 times per week, almost always including new features, balance and polish improvements, and bug fixes. We are extremely fast at development, and will continue to push forward with maximum energy to make the game ever-greater on a daily basis. We live and breath game development, this is what we do.”

Nothing to see here guys, they've kept all their promises already, nobody deserves a game with procedurally generated maps with over 100 creatures, underwater bases, weaponized saddles or gas powered vehicles. Entitled scumbags making unreasonable demands, jesus. Game was fully released in june 2016 right on schedule, now buy the DLC that has all new features never before promised.

Paid DLC for an Early Access game and people are apparently fine with it.

What times we live in.
its a top seller, to tell how people are desesperate. Anything a bit remotely fun goes on top sales immediately, even rushed , bugged and unfinished.

Pretty much. Games these days are either trivial, bad and/or undesireable rehashes of old games of yore or plain bad. The best games today are those that offer some sort of interesting gameplay - even if miniscule - and consequently end up as bug-ridden chronically underfunded perpetual EA mess. Creativity has left game development when it turned industry and the industry is kept on life-support through the Moloch Steam.

I spent 600 hours on ark .. But i was with friends. So the logic thing should be i rush to buy that expansion, however i dont .Many people i know stopped cause of various reasons, last one was cause of a super high level with min maxed stats ptera going through the floor and vanishing forever.Another big problem for me is the decay time, you cant play that alone even in pve, 7 days oflfline and all your dinos are claimable.As for pvp its still possible to wipe out someones base when they are offline . its bound to happen, people ends up with two much C4 , dinos and time with nothing else to do.Ah and dont get me started on the optimization.. i am still waiting for the dx12 upgrade.

Still it was much more worth playing than the sea of shit and shovelwares steam try to sell me.

There's other decent stuff out there, it just hasn't gotten the lucky marketing breaks like Ark did. Battle Brothers is shaping up quite nicely, Starsector as well. It's a shame to see Ark go this way though, I think it really was the best of the first person multiplayer survival youtube bait games. Had some cool features and promised a lot more. I doubt we'll ever see half of those features though now that the devs have become ok with just selling off content piecemeal.
