Mod: Sedative Longneck Rifle Dart


It has been some time, but now the first usable mods are available to subscribe on Steam Workshop. The “Sedative Longneck Rifle Dart” Mod was made by potatojoe, it adds new sedative ammunition for the longneck rifle. This is a really strong narcotic: A level two Bronto just needed four darts until it was stunned. Personally, I think its a little bit too strong for a multiplayer server at the moment. I also would have liked darts to remain for on the dino body longer.

Dino Dossier: Oviraptor

Common Name: Oviraptor
Species: Oviraptor Philodator
Time: Late Cretaceous
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament: Skittish
Domestication
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: No
  • Wild: Oviraptor Philodator is a small-to-medium sized carnivore, common in the jungles and beaches of the island. Despite being a carnivore, Oviraptor's primary source of food is eggs, which it steals from nests. Unlike any other creature, Oviraptor seems to be able to surreptitiously steal these eggs usually without attracting the attention of the irate mother.
  • Domesticated: Too small to fight or ride, Oviraptor is still one of the more commonly tamed creatures on the island. Its pheromone release ensures an increased stream of eggs from nearby mated wild creatures, for breeding, eating, or cooking kibble. And Oviraptor will autonomously do the dirty work of collecting them on your behalf without attracting unwanted attention. They also make quite adorable sounds, so many children simply like to keep them as rather strange companions.
  • Known Information: In an incredible feat of natural selection, Oviraptor seems to emit a chemical pheromone that affects many creatures as an aphrodisiac. Mated creatures are much more likely to... "create" new eggs while Oviraptor is around, which allows the oviraptor to go about its business unperturbed.

Dino Dossier: Electrophorus – Eel

A new dinosaur has been announced: the Electrophorus. This little follower is more known as electric eel, albeit this is the giant version. There are no additional informations available yet, but maybe we'll be able to use them as an alternative power source? 😉

Common Name: Electrophorus
Species: Electrophorus Beluadomito
Time: Holocene
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament: Reactive
Domestication
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: Unknown
  • Wild: Occupying a space in the low-to-middle end of the food chain, Electrophorus beluadomito is a carnivorous swimmer the feeds mostly off of shellfish and small fish. Despite its common name, it is actually a very long knifefish, and not an eel. It does not provide much meat, so many predators simply leave it be. Unlike most predators, it does not use brute strength to bring down its prey, but instead releases an electrical charge around itself to knock its prey unconscious. Alone, this can take out a small creature. When attacking together, Electrophorus can even bring down the larger ocean lifeforms, then feed as a group.
  • Domesticated: By far, the most common use of Electrophorus is to subdue large ocean creatures. Knocking out a Plesiosaur or other giant deep-sea leviathan can be incredibly difficult, thus many tribes employ small schools of Electrophorus to shock targets into submission!

ARK: Survival Evolved Patch 188.2 – Patchnotes

These are the changes of ARK: Survival Evolved’s Patch 188.1, grouped into categories for clarity. If not otherwise indicated, they’re quoted from the relevant Steam Thread.

Dino Changes

  • Dinos that are pushed into world geomtry (moved inside stones etc) are now killed after a period of time. Don’t try to hide dinos there, it’s not legit 😉
  • “Stay All” Whistle (“U” by default) now only affects things following YOU or the Dino that you’re riding. (so if you have a team with other dinos following other team members, it won’t stop those other dinos)

Game Changes

  • Transponders no longer disappear if your body is destroyed and you have a loot bag so that [yo]u can find your bag — they then attach to your loot bag. (if that’s destroyed, however, then bye bye transponder)
  • Turrets require power again 😉

UI Changes

  • Removed the unnecessary word “Quantity” from the “Craft All” button

Bugfixes

  • Fixed turret shooting logic bug that was causing incorrect turret fire rate (or was causing them to not fire at all), and fixed aiming logic to not fire if it doesn’t have a clean shot — turrets should be pretty badass killing machines now, shouldn’t have any direct exploits remaining.

Performance

  • Defaulted the loading speed improvements, shipped the prebuilt load cache, and made it used by default. Loading & streaming speed gains of 70-80% on PrimalGameData… still have to do the maps though 🙂

ARK: Survival Evolved Patch 188.1 – Patchnotes

These are the changes of ARK: Survival Evolved’s Patch 188.1, grouped into categories for clarity. If not otherwise indicated, they’re quoted from the relevant Steam Thread.

New Items / New Structures

  • Non-Dedicated Host Session: for small groups to play cooperatively — you use singleplayer saves with this mode, seamlessly! For the moment to Host online, you need to open ports 27015-27030 and 7777 to your computer (not necessary on LAN) — but soon tomorrow, that will be automatic using Steam NAT traversal. If you’re looking to join such a session, you’ll find these sessions listed in the “Non-Dedicated Session” filter type on the Session List UI. Or join using your Friends list, or the LAN list, if it’s a LAN game. Note that Non-Dedicated Hosting uses your SINGLEPLAYER saved world/character, so you can seamlessly switch between Hosting and playing Singleplayer 🙂 . Also, everyone but the Host is restricted to playing within a ~200 meter radius around the Host (it’s primarily for Coop-only play). For the time being, this is necessary to preserve Host performance & system memory.

Dino Changes

  • Reduced Ant (Titanomyrma) aggro radius by 30%
  • Phiomia can now poop

Game Changes

  • Turrets no longer will target you through corpses, and they no longer have any friendly fire
  • Repairing structures now only takes half as much resources as before (as further incentive to Repair rather than Replace)
  • Crop plots can now be placed on very uneven ground
  • Mate-boosted Tamed Dinos now have 2x chance of producing eggs
  • Placeable Structures (boxes, beds, signs, etc) will no longer be destroyed when replacing the underlying structure beneath them.
  • Vaults once again properly drop if the floor underneath them is destroyed
  • Fortitude stat now has 1.5x the insulating effect as previously
  • PvP Cave damage multiplier (default 6x) now functions in underwater caves as well

UI Changes

  • There is now a repair-cost tooltip when you hover over the “Repair Structure” option, indicating the material cost to fully repair the structure

Bugfixes

  • Cooked Prime Meat will no longer be eaten before Raw Meat by Tamed Dinos
  • Added Tribe Name to Death Recap (so that u can know what Tribe to seek unholy revengeance upon)
  • Fixed an issue in singleplayer games where you could remain sleeping forever! (sleeping beauty)

Performance

  • Eliminated remaining server-side memory leak
  • ~70% faster loading speed option. Choose “Experiment Fast Load Cache” launch option (use add “-usecache” to your launch commandline manually). After the first & second times that you start the game & load will be still be slow, but the third time onwards will be fast. This is testing a new caching method. If it works well, will then ship with the prebuilt cached files so that it’ll always be fast even first-time, and we’ll do this for all the maps as well.
