Ark: Survival Evolved {SLUrvivors}

[updated: 6/03/2016: The server is closing on about 7/03/2016]

I've got a server up now if anyone from SLU is interested. It is password protected so just pm me for the password, just didn't want a bunch of randoms cramming in. It's only a 10 slot server but should be enough for any interest here (as far as I know only Edav and I have the game so far).

For those not sure what Ark: Survival Evolved is...

Ark: Survival Evolved lets you domesticate dinosaurs, if you can stay alive long enough | Polygon


This is for Steam so to add the server:

Go to View>Servers




To add a server:
current address: 199.102.79.90:28751




To pick the SLUvivor server:

Choose Favorites and then choose the "Wicked Muses" server that you just added.



Once you join it might start loading and then show this screen. This is ok, just give it a sec and it should connect:





If you have saved characters that you have played on the official servers you should be able to download that character onto the SLUrvivor server. If (like me) you have just played locally on your own pc than you'll need to make a new character.

Once in game I can add you to the tribe and then all buildings, storage, dinos are shared (in an update I think this will be tweaked to have personal stuff as well). I've already placed a structure and can make a few clothes if you need em off the bat.

(Will pm the password to Edav just in case)

Ha! I got a lil frisky and decided to start stabbing a lvl 1 trike near my thatch mansion. I figured a level 1 would be easy. Ha! He swiped me hard and had me on the run. I kept trying to jump on rocks to lose him but he wasn't deterred. I ran into my thatch mansion while loling at his frustrations. So after he busts through, taking down a few walls and door I end up respawning back there at my hide sleeping bag. I figured he'd have given up by then. Nope! So there I was naked and in the dark and he was ravenous for my cadaver. He finally reset and just chilled by my pad.



10/10 will stab again! I'm loving this game and finding it hard to play other stuff even though it does have some wonky issues. Looking forward to seeing some of you in game!

I've managed to be killed by most things - The first death was two other players attacking me and its gone down hill from there , finally my last death was a dodo !!!

Well he kept running between my legs and I couldn't hit him so was swinging blindly and didn't see the trike which I hit by accident , the rest is history

At our camp I found NyteWytch dead and tried to drag her body inside the hut. It wouldn't let me do so, so I kinda nudged her under it, and went off to get stuff. I came back and a dinosaur was eating her so I killed that sucker. I've been using a hatchet and killed a level 23 dinosaur (!)

I got busy this morning and crafted a bunch of storage boxes and put tools, clothes, and materials in them. Help yourselves!

Awwww, Cris and Ava got all tuckered out adventuring.




Oh and if anybody wants to join our little encampment pick east zone 2 when you spawn and look for the gaudy thatch building on the shore.

I'm working on building a nicer wooden house that dinosaurs can't eat (or I hope they can't eat), so if anyone has spare wood, there's a box marked "wood" and drop it in there.

How did you get the map to show like that NyteWytch? Cristiano and I couldn't figure it out. Is that the M button plus first person view? I was playing in third.

Yeah map is in first person view at the moment. I play with a controller and just scroll in to see the map. This map was from the net though. Looks like East Zone 3 would actually be a better pick for respawning currently. Once we have someone that can make beds then the tribe can respawn at the base directly.



Feel free to use anything in the storage boxes. AvaAdore and I have tried to keep some clothes and tools in there for fresh repawns, newbies or breakages. I put down a mortar/pestle, cooking plot and a small garden plot (can only use 1 seed at a time). I've been storing narcotics for taming which doesn't spoil like the narcoberries for taming. I think you have to unlock the narcotics with engrams in order to make em yourself but I think anyone can use the cooking pot. Recipes are for buffs and don't increase your food meter, I believe.

I was in my inventory, happily making wooden walls since it was nighttime, all tucked away in the hut with everyone's snoozing body. I close my inventory and a MOTHERFUCKING PTERODACTYL has its face stuck in the house through the door. I'm still recovering.

Yeah I've finally gotten a bit braver around them since they haven't killed me yet. Although yesterday I tried to adventure a bit and got killed by a fucking level 1 scorpion. He tranq me then just proceeded to defile my lifeless body. So after I regeared up, I saw a treasure appear in te lagoon in front of the hut. I said "Fuck yeah!" and jumped in. Took a careful look around, no predators, so swam up to the treasure. Just as I open the treasure, fucking megladon rips me apart in one bite. So I just farmed after that. Hahaha!

Finally learned waterskin and beds so if you need to respawn you can pick the "simple Bed" spawn point, forgot to name it something imaginative. Also I tamed a dodo so if you see "Lunch" hanging round camp don't eat her! I'll have to get her a Mr. Lunch and then he'll lay eggs we can eat.

With update 176 there are options to pick for the Tribe government. Let me know what you guys prefer, I'm ok with things being communal unless you guys prefer personal.

Tribe Governance Options :: ARK: Survival Evolved General Discussions

Quote:
Tribe Governance Options
Hey guys!

Just a run through for the current options with the new Tribe Government settings.


IMPORTANT - Before joining a tribe

When you receive a tribe invite, you are able to click on View Tribe Info in the activation menu, as an option. This will allow you to inspect the government settings of the tribe that has invited you. Therefore you'll be able to make an informed decision about whether you would want to join, based on ownership etc. If you do not see any government settings, that mean the tribe has not set them up yet and you should proceed with caution.

Dino Ownership

Tribe Owned

This is where any Dinosaur that joins the tribe ends up belonging to the tribe (this affects any Dino you previously own when you join the Tribe!). So any member belonging to the tribe is able to unclaim, ride, access the inventory, command the Dinosaur to carry out actions. If you leave the tribe, the Dinosaur stays with the tribe.

Personally Owned, Tribe Ridden

This is where the Dinosaurs are owned by the person who brings them to the tribe. However they can still be ridden and used by other tribe members (inventory access, AI commands). If you were to leave the tribe, the Dinosaur will also leave with you (and eject that creepy stranger who’s riding it!).

Personally Owned - Personally Ridden

This is where the Dinosaur is solely your personal belonging, members of the tribe cannot carry out any actions with the Dinosaur, only you can. If you are to leave the tribe, the Dinosaur also leaves.

Dino Taming

THIS OPTION ONLY BECOMES AVAILABLE IF YOU HAVE NOT SELECTED TRIBE-OWNERSHIP IN THE ABOVE SETTING.

Tribe Taming

This means from here on out any Dinosaur that you tame or anyone in the tribe tames will belong to the tribe, for total communal use.

Personal Taming

This means from here on out whilst in the tribe, anything that you tame will belong to you (and thus follow the Dino Ownership rules above) and if you are to leave the tribe, it leaves with you. Taming rights in this case are determined by who knocked the Dino out (if knocked out by a player) or put the first piece of food into its inventory. You can tell who’s gonna own the Tamed dino in this case by looking at the Taming HUD.

Structure Ownership

This determines who owns the structures in the tribe, this will refer to who can place new objects, demolishing, setting pin codes etc.

Tribe Owned

Tribe owned means that everything that any structure or object placed is under ownership of the entire tribe. Therefore anyone in the tribe can interact with it. If you are to leave the tribe, anything you have built whilst a member - remains in the tribe.

Personally Owned, Tribe Snap, Admin Demolish

This mean that anything you place is owned by you, if you are to leave the tribe, the structures still belong to you. Tribe snap allows other people to help you with your buildings by placing objects, as well as allowing them to build nearby. Admin Demolish means that only you or admins can demolish what you own.

Personally Owned, Personal Snap

This means that anything you placed is owned by you, and only you can add on to it by placing new objects or structures. If you leave the tribe, you still own everything.

Locks & Pincodes

THIS OPTION ONLY BECOMES AVAILABLE IF YOU HAVE SELECTED A NON-TRIBE OWNERSHIP IN THE ABOVE SETTING

Tribe Locks & Pincodes

This option applies to Gates, Doors and Storage chests. It means that one of the prior is locked or has a pincode, a tribe member can automatically bypass this. Non tribe-members will have to either know the pin-code or they are unable to access any locked structures/doors.

Personal Locks & Pincodes

This option applies to Gates, Doors and Storage chests. This means that if something is locked or has a pincode, only you can immediately by-pass this. Other members of the tribe, or non-tribe members will have to know the pin-code to open the gates, doors or the storage chests.

Hope this clears up some of the confusion! We will be adding more Tribe Governance options based on feedback (very likely related to Admin privileges), as well as making it possible for a Tribe to change their Governance settings more than once… but until then, choose wisely if you’re going to setup your Tribe Government because currently it’s a one-time decision!

Have fun and feel free to ask any questions that I might be able to help you with here,
Your Community Manager, Jat

I'm really tempted to get this. I saw it on the Featured Deals on Steam earlier today and I was really excited, but for whatever reason they don't seem to be giving it the normal Featured discount. It's still at the same sale price it's been since the beginning of the sale, and there's no 48-hour countdown on Ark's store page.

I hope it's an oversight and that they fix it soon. It's probably costing the devs lost sales.

ETA:

Never mind, I checked the game's Discussion page on Steam. Someone asked about whether there was some sort of error since this is the only game on the daily Featured Deals that didn't get an added discount, and one of the devs responded:

Quote:
As for the Daily Deal, the Spectacles is our way of saying thank you, but yes to avoid making anyone feel bad about buying the game at its launch price, we weren't able to discount it any further.
http://steamcommunity.com/app/346110...20656469400035

So I guess it wasn't a mistake. They wanted the extra publicity from being listed as a Featured Deal, but they didn't want to drop the price further. It's funny, if they hadn't done this, I probably would have bought the game at the end of the Summer Sale, at the price they're charging.

I fell for it. Took over half an hour to get it installed and ready to play

But I was pretty proud of myself for figuring out that you could collect wood by actually punching trees with your bare hands! Had to find a Youtube tutorial to figure out where the crafting dropdown was, but this game might have some potential.

Since my headset shot the craps, I don't have a mic to voice with anybody (just never needed one), and my machine specs are on the borderline (had to turn graphics down a touch to get better FPS). So I'm reluctant to join one of the ARK servers just yet.

Playing "local" so far to figure out if I want to go very far. Where do I get machine guns?

The release date is listed as June 2nd on Steam, so sounds fair enough to me. I don't doubt it will be on sale again in a month of two, Steam or elsewhere. I'll probably go ahead and buy it now though.

I get your opinion on this but at the same time if they even dropped it by a couple bucks then there would've been a ton of returns/repurchases due to the new return policy (I probably would've too). All I can say is that this game has been more than worth the $25 for the 15 hours and counting that I've gotten out of it. Don't let that keep ya from owning your very own dodo!

Sure, and like I said, if it hadn't been a Daily Deal, I probably would have bought it this weekend as the sale wraps up. But the devs (or the publisher) decided that they wanted to be on the front page as a Daily Deal, without discounting the game like the rest of the Daily Deals.

I understand why they felt like they couldn't do a price drop, because in this case virtually all of their sales had been made within the refundable timeframe. I'm fine with their decision not to do that. But they went and Rockstarred the game to get it on the front page.

It looks like a cool game, but I think I'll wait till it's done with Early Access.
