Breeding

I think it needs to be added to quick game basics on the home page, breeding is now a major part and should gets its own position there. Wilberforce2 (talk) 20:55, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

You're right, and it probably will in time. But first we need to get a handle on the quality of the page, which means we first need to gather an understanding of the process.
--Mr Pie 5 (talk) 21:02, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
I agree, but we might aswell put it in there ready for when we have got it, or at least so people know that it's there so they can edit it. But I do understand where you are coming from. Wilberforce2 (talk) 21:41, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
You did it! Yay! Much happyness, many wow, the page got cleaned up quite a lot very quickly too. Thanks a lot! Nice cleanup of the admin notice board too. Wilberforce2 (talk) 05:58, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Quetzalcoatlus taming is an issue.

okay before I start, Yes they can be tamed and yes you can get friends to help. However The Quetz is a fantastic bird and I have noticed it is nearly impossible to tame solo(alone). I have tried landing on its back to fill it with narcotics, this doesn't work. I have tried lifting a scorpion to hit it again doesn't work(After 2 hours I gave up). I have tried going higher than it and parachuting down onto it while shooting the new darts. I went through 40 darts on a level 12. So developers how are people who play alone supposed to be able to obtain and tame this creature if you have made it physically impossible to do so. This makes this part of the game very unfair for either a single player person or me a solo tribes man. I suggest something is changed to make it possible to Tame this bird by yourself!

Problem with Breeding/Dino files link on the Main page

Clicking on dinosaurs leads to breeding Wilberforce2 (talk) 05:49, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Small issue. Since you added the "breeding" part on the main page, when you click on the "image" of the Dino files you are sent to the breeding page. Not very important but I just wanted to let you know of that little mistake. Keep up the good work :) ~Jamie. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JamieDavisTurner (talkcontribs) at 10:40, 20 October 2015‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Enable Semantic Mediawiki please?

Hello!

In game wikis I always look for lots of data so I can plan and optimize my base / gameplay without going into creative mode or such. But when I start putting up the data values I get sad because there are multiple pages that need the same data :( Can we enable Semantic Mediawiki extension on here (and preferably enable external use)? I checked and it's already allowed on Gamepedia, it's just disabled by default.

One place it would really help is having all the item stats on the item's page, and then Entity_IDs would be generated and updated automatically. And also adding coordinates to locations such as caves, artifacts, etc would automatically generate Coordinates. Crafting, Farming#Fertilization, and Farming#Seeds would also be done automagically. I'm sure there's more examples.

Maybe we can also use Semantic Maps to show a map of the island and different points of interest, instead of uploading a different looking map for each type of location that quickly gets outdated.

--Higgs1 (talk) 00:07, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Hey Higgs! The Semantic Mediawiki extension has been added at your request. Please let me know if you have any other specific issues with it or other requests. Cheers! --Z3ther (talk) 17:26, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much, I can't wait to try it out! (I might totally disappear for a week+ again though >.>) --Higgs1 (talk) 17:57, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Looks good, thanks for the suggestion and the activation. For the Semantic Maps it seems one need map-data like OpenStreetMap or Googlemap provide it, but I guess there is nothing there like that for the ARK-Island yet. If you want to display a single point on the map, you can use the Map-template though. --Cadaeib (talk) 15:05, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Inconsistent information on pages

Hello, admins!

In regards to Thatch - the Domestication page states 5/5 stars for the Brontosaurus, while the actual Brontosaurus page lists 4/5 stars. Is this inconsistency intentional? This issue was submitted through Gamepedia's support email. Thanks! BriannaMCR (talk) 16:01, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

That's an odd thing to send an email for. But those stars are complete estimates, almost arbitrary, simply to allow users to easily compare multiple creatures and evaluate their individual utilities. As far as I know, Bronto is the best thatch-gatherer, so I'm going to run with the 5 stars.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 01:07, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
Moose and Bronto are the 2 best thatch gatherers. Wilberforce2 (talk) 10:44, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Eomys Fan made Dossier and page.

I saw that the Eomys page that I worked hard on was marked for deletion. I find it kind of unfair as the Dodorex was ALSO a fan made creature and so was the page for it yet it remained on the wiki for a long time. Up until the creature was implemented as a Halloween special boss mob then the page was modified. That page too had all the info, but the creature was nowhere.

I would like to request that the page may be archived or moved to the "Fan Art" as a whole and not just the image. The page itself contains a lot more info then just the dossier image.

Thank you.

Kdthehun (talk) 15:20, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Pfft! Already deleted. Why care about a member...
Good luck in your future endeavors!
Note to Mr. Pie 5:
No idea how you got to be admin, but if you don't care about members then why be admin?
I'm 100% sure you didn't even read the page I created nor my message here. It's wasn't
just fan art. It was a lot more then that. If you couldn't see that, then you need to
find some other job/hobby or whatever else this "admining" is for you.
PS.: If you a fan and want to make something nice on this wiki, don't bother!
Kdthehun (talk) 21:48, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
The difference between yours and the DodoRex is the DodoRex was officially confirmed as being added to the game in ARK Digest #11, and upon which a page was promptly created for it. If you can direct us to a dev post or reply stating that your Eomys will be added, we will gladly restore the page. However, Fan-created dossiers are not allowed their own page, since that would cause a great deal of confusion.
-- Minemodoverlord (talk) 22:00, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
Your page was deleted because it is not a part of the game, yet was made to appear as if it was. Try to imagine that it wasn't your creature, and you had never been here before - you would see that page and think that it was somehow confirmed due to it having an official place on the wiki. We do not want our viewers to be walking away with incorrect information. The DodoRex was given a page prior to its actual release because it was confirmed in Ark Digest #11.

Now, rather than make a childish attempt to try and slander us and attack me personally, perhaps you can give me a reason why an unofficial creature should stay on the official wiki? Perhaps we could find a way to accommodate you and other fan artists beyond the existing Fan Art page. Your page was deleted, but deleted items can easily be restored with a click; it isn't necessarily gone for good.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 22:05, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
Alright, Alianin came up with a compromise. You can have your full creature page on your personal wiki page, or as a subpage of it if you'd prefer that.
For future reference, if you disagree with policy, the policy is enforced first and debated second. Constructive criticism is welcome, insults are not. If you disagree with this compromise, I'd suggest you try discussing an alternative without calling me an asshole - it's much more likely to work out in your favor.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 22:37, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

So, yeah.... blow me away, do what you admins do. But before you do that, do direct me to your "Policy" page where it states that Fan made dossiers are not allowed even if the creator clearly indicates on the page that it is a Fan Fiction/Creation and it may never be part of the game. I checked the Rules, it says nothing about it. I checked the General Disclaimer thinking that maybe it was there, but nothing. I checked the main page, but no luck there either. So, anyways do enforce your policies as you come up with them, as it is YOUR wiki. But then do tell me this. Why put all those Style Guides accessible by all if you don't want anyone to create a page? You COULD limit access to them to the Admin team only... I'm sure that would prevent this kind of headache for you.

PS.: I didn't call you an asshole, i just pointed it out that you are doing a sloppy job by not reading the content of the page nor my initial request of getting it moved as a whole to the Fan Art area. "I would like to request that the page may be archived or moved to the "Fan Art" as a whole and not just the image. The page itself contains a lot more info then just the dossier image." Saying that i called you an asshole just further proves my point that you don't read the posts but rather skim through them. I do not see how i insulted you as i did not call you names or anything of the sort. In my eyes it WAS constructive criticism, although i do admit it was rather rough and that i did not spend enough time thinking over it and wording it a bit more mildly. But put yourself in my shoes. You spend half a day making something that in your eyes is adding to the lore and immersiveness of something you like, and you find all the necessary Style Guides and formatting provided for it, and you see no rules or policies anywhere that clearly says you can't do that, and then an Admin comes and deletes it without even reading it or reading your request to have it moved. How would you feel? What would you have said to that Admin in the heat of the moment? No need to post a reply. Just try to see it from my point of view. If you can, then you are a better admin then you let it show.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Kdthehun (talkcontribs) at 6:37, 6 November, 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Put myself in your shoes? Perhaps you can try to do the same? You spent half a day creating one page, I spend half of most of my days for the past few months keeping this place as neat and tidy as I can, reviewing most every edit made to make sure it's appropriate and not complete bullshit (of which there is a lot) and trying to figure out the best way to handle it if it is, searching for any and all areas that require improvement, and of course, conversing with people like you who can't be bothered to look at the bigger picture, yet insist that they're the ones with unfilled shoes - all in addition to school and a job. My sincerest apologies if the items on my to-do list weren't in the correct order to appease you. I found the page you made, saw that it was content that was not a part of the game, promptly removed it so as not to confuse or mislead our readers, and moved to the next item on my list; it wasn't until a few minutes later that I came across your post requesting its relocation, and by that point you had already started slandering the wiki and insulting me. This is a wiki for the game, not deviantart, it is very heavily implied that content should be about the game. When we discussed the rules back in the summer as we were creating them, and continue to discuss them daily, we had thought that much would be obvious, but now that I can see we were mistaken, I'll be sure to bring up that addition with the other admins and have it added to the rule sheet ASAP.
I do care about members (although I'm admittedly more fond of those who are helpful, follow the rules, and offer their opinions civilly), and I understand your reaction to having your creation removed , but that does not justify your lashing out. If you were to make a good point, which you did (initially), things can be changed, which they were - your page being restored and moved somewhere more appropriate until such time as a proper spot for it can be found. If you disagree with the way things are done and want to get things changed, we're happy to hear you out. But if you want to act like a brat and start mudslinging when you don't get your way, we'll also be happy to deal with you as such.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 09:38, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
We all have high respects for you and your work, but I do understand his point. (I was the one that put the page up for deletion. But my reason also contained a request to place it in the fan art.) I personally want to let you know that your continuous work is being appreciated. :)
FissaElectro (talk) 13:30, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

My Apologies. I do not wish to engage in further discussion about how i worded what i said. It is done and i can't take it back. I own up to my mistakes and back off. I only have 1 more question though. Can my initial request be fulfilled?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Kdthehun (talkcontribs) at 11:02, 6 November, 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Your creation was initially moved to your UserWiki , so it was in a sense archived there. However, in the course of typing this reply, I think I've come up with a better solution - while it would be too much trouble to create a new namespace for one creature and it would be too cluttered to put it on the Fan Art page as a whole, it can be moved to a subpage of the existing fan art page: Fan Art/Eomys. This seems to me to be a good place for it, and pretty close to what you were originally asking, but of course, feel free to let us know if you disagree.
Curse has another ARK project in the works. I don't know how much I should say, but once it goes public, there will likely be a much more appropriate environment for you to share this and any other creations you come up with.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 18:43, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Adding it as a sub page to Fan Art would be superb. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kdthehun (talkcontribs) at 21:20, 6 November 2015‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
Hey Kdthehun, personally I love what you put together in regards to your fan art for Eomys and would love to see more. Hopefully people aren't discouraged by this unknowing of where to place it and continue to create new ideas for creatures and dinosaurs. I think the placement of it was a bit of a misunderstanding, and other people getting confused by it thinking it was actually in the game. While where to place it is still being discussed, we'd love to have more fan created content in the future and hopefully things are settled between you and Mr Pie 5. For future reference, please make use of your user page as much as you can preferably. Besides spam, it's there for users to try out different things, create mock pages, and or fan ideas, and from there it can be expanded and placed in a proper area. Cheers --Z3ther (talk) 05:47, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Resource location information template?

I really love the recent creature habitat information that has been added to the templates, so i was curious if it would be possible to do something similiar for resources? It might be slightly redundant for some resources like wood(since it's available nearly everywhere). However stuff like oil, crystals, metal etc it would be very usefull to be able to show on a map where it is abundant. I would do this myself, if it wasen't for the fact that i don't know how tempalte creation works. If someone does implement this feature I'll be wiling to help fill in information for resources. --Alex42000 (talk) 09:23, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Unfair towards PC Players

We basicly helped you set up your shop to become a great game studio, Supporting you guys from the start of Ark:Survival Evolved from the start. Eventho alot of bugs glitches and other stupid stuff happened (obviously happens in an Alpha is what its for) but then reward your playerbase that helped you clean up alot of those bugs.

Instead of making a Xbox One version of the game and giving them EXCLUSEIVE ROBOT TREX CONTENT?

Are you kidding me right now.. We have been playing this game for over 1000+hours mostly, and we get jack shit..

I honestly feel that Wildcard Studios is taking the piss on this one.

Make it so that we can get robot Trex skins aswell, this makes no sence to not give it to PC players wich have been with you from the start, making your game great.

Can you please do something bout this, its pissing me off alot and i might even quit to play overall. Games need to be fair, and fair to playerbase for the amount of work they have put in. Also pc Players made ur game great on Twitch and not your SOTF tournament, The first SOTF with slipg8tr and all the other streamers, that have made you big..

Hi, you totally seem to be on the wrong place. This is a wiki about the game, not a place to give feedback or to complain about non-wiki-related topics. The dev's very likely will never read this, your pissed off language only annoys other players who seek information about the game and admins who have to clean up. Go to the steam forums, reddit or the official hub (and maybe you will realize there are dozens of similar complaints like yours, it does not add anything new or useful to the discussion). And please sign your posts in the wiki like mentioned a couple of times on this page.--Cadaeib (talk) 09:55, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Outdated information on Herbivore Island/ South haven

Hi.

I just noticed how the page of Herbivore Island says that no carnivores/ hostile animals spawn there, while nowadays multiple Argentavis spawn on the Island. So I would just like to point out that it's now less safe to be there for new players and that the Argentavis is missing on the list of creatures that spawn on the island.

-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 19:11, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
In the new patch 231 I saw them on the Island too. I even got attacked by them. I'm 100% sure this was after the Winter Wonderland, so maybe it's a bug.

Tribe left, Structures gone

Hello I have been playing on the official server 436 and was in a tribe that I created and was alone in said tribe. I then left the tribe after building a base for fear it would make other tribes attack me. However I did not think that I wouldn't be able to access my doors and gates. Is there anyway that I can Rejoin the tribe that now has 0 members or atleast be able to get all of the structures that I placed back under my control,

Instead, you should try posting on the Official Forums, the Steam forums, or emailing the developers at support@studiowildcard.com for help in-game or suggestions related to future development. Regardless, we hope you succeed in your endeavors.--Cadaeib (talk) 01:16, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Colours of habitat information

Recently the colours of the creatures habitat information have been changed:          

I have the impression that now on the map the borders between the green colours of "Very Common" and "Common" are nearly indistinguishable and the borders between orange "Rare" and red "Very Rare" are a bit difficult to distinguish. Two example pages: Pteranodon & Quetzal.

So I wanted to ask, if others have the same issue.

Thanks for the note, I adjusted the according colors. You may have to refresh the page to see the changes. --Cadaeib (talk) 14:15, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the adjustment - looks better now. -- Gaddhi (talk) 10:07, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Xbox update

Would you guys mind adding the Xbox Controls into your wikis?

A lot of your content on here seems to be focused primarily on PC.

The problem is that most, if not all of our main editors are PC players, so we don't really know what the Xbox buttons are. We have the Controls page for general controls, but for actions for specific items, we're reliant on passerby to fill that information in. I can get some better notices about PC exclusives made though.

Ovaraptor frustration

Hi

We have tamed a couple of Ovarators now, but after a couple of days they disappear under the map (they DONT Die its not until we see the egg symbol gone from the other dinos we notice) sometimes they clitch under foundations then when we go to get them we fall through the map and the dino disappears?? is this an issue with Xbox at the moment?

this is annoying me at the moment because they are not easy to tame as it is this has happened to a couple more people on the sever.

I have screenshots of us under the map too.

Thanks Luke

How to handle missed ETAs

As anyone who follows upcoming patch notes at all knows, the devs ETAs are almost always missed. While I have no problem with this (they are estimates, after all), I don't think the patch notes section of the wiki should be left inaccurate simply because the devs haven't updated the post yet. Would it be more appropriate to replace the ETA bit with something like '???' or 'Unknown'? For example, instead of leaving the wiki page as 'Upcoming Version: v237.0, ETA: March 23' on March 24th, replace it with 'Upcoming Version: v237.0, ETA: Unknown'. I think it's far less confusing for those who are unaware of the devs tendencies to miss/not update their ETAs. Pieisnotpi (talk) 20:10, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

I see your point. How about adding a "Last official" before a missed ETA? So it'd be like "Last official ETA: March 23". That way it would contain more info.--Cadaeib (talk) 21:14, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it out, but it might be a little too bloated Pieisnotpi (talk) 22:10, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Patch-Download-Size

Hi, Is there any possible way you could post the approximate patch file sizes? Even something like "less than 500K" or "greater than 2G" would be extremely helpful. Surely this is information that is known once a patch is live and surely I'm not the only who'd find it helpful.

Boring details as to why I request this: Due to circumstances beyond our control and a lack of choices, we have download limits and slow internet speed. I can download files elsewhere but it's a pain in the butt. If a patch is small enough to download at home I will do that but since my alternate download location is an hour from home, it'd be nice to know in advance the file size so I can plan ahead. I could wait a day but I hate to miss any playing time!  :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.182.163.102 (talkcontribs) at 17:18, 29 March 2016‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Hi, we don't know the patch-size before it's live (we are just players like you). You'd have to contact the devs directly. Maybe you can get a rough estimate from the amount of patch-notes.--Cadaeib (talk) 16:39, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Paint Regions

Hello, I am fairly certain this is the best way to present my little pet project (even though I am confident many of you have seen it by now via Recent Changes) without spamming each of your Talk pages.

At User:Sanctyl/Template:PaintRegions, I have coded a template that I consider ready to be deployed to the Live Wiki. I would like to apply this template to each Structure page initially, and then perhaps Gear/Saddles in the future by using a Section Header entitled "Paint Regions." This, by no means, implies anyone but me has more work to do for each individual page; I can upload images and update the pages over time as my personal contribution. I am wondering, however, if any of you have input or suggestions (perhaps prefer different naming conventions or styling guides, etc) before deployment?

Thank you for your time, and thank you for your industrious work on this Wiki. Sanctyl (talk) 03:24, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

It looks good, nice work. Gathering the individual images will be the tricky part, especially standardizing them. As I said in my edit to the template (which I hoped would work first try, now I feel bad about leaving broken code on your page), it would be nice to also put a slideboxlightshow on the side so that users can easily flip through blown-up versions of the image, rather than visit each individual page. Aside from that, looks fine. The nomenclature is simple enough to use, and any changes that need to be made to the text can easily be done at a later point.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 04:33, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm glad you like it. I was going to mess with your code before I noticed you pulled it over to your own Sandbox, but I did take a look at it. If the code does work with the slideboxlightshow, I think instead of repeating the if statements, an array could save on overhead (if arrays are installed on this Wiki, I haven't honestly checked). An array could be added to each time the template determines an image exists, and then the final array would be called into slideboxlightshow.
Edit: I confirmed that arrays aren't installed here, so never mind my suggestion. Arrays are fun though. :) Sanctyl (talk) 05:07, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Okay, after some help from Majr and a reminder to myself of why I hate editing templates (can't preview the result because it's still calling the old version), I've got it working.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 05:45, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
I agree with you on editing templates; they could be easier to work with. I also like your slideshow (it gives the template more life) and copied it into my Sandbox. I'm going to let the template sit as-is for another day just in case you, any of the other admins, or I come up with something else to improve upon now before it becomes a chore to do in the future. Thank you again for looking over the code and for your input, Mr Pie 5.
Edit: I decided to add the Sandboxed template to the Behemoth Gate page for live testing before deploying the template to the rest of the Wiki. Sanctyl (talk) 06:25, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Dino Eggs

On my offline personal server I cannot get my dinosaurs to lay eggs. The dodos will lay eggs but my tamed dilos, parasaurs, and raptor have not layed any eggs. My dilos are mate boosted so I do not think that is the problem and it isn't that they are deteriorating before I see them either because I always have my raptor with me. What's wrong with my server? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 104.237.104.215 (talkcontribs) at 4:34, 24 April, 2016 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
