Question

Here is my list of improvements after a fair amount of playtime. Please consider the critics. The game have good potentials but you really need to step away from the copy paste all mechanics ARK had. You need to bring more new stuff. Specially how to interact with objects. Your E menu interface is not fun at all. Noticeable when sailing.

My list of suggestions:

1. Cold = Death: If you decide to be on cold islands well fortitude won't save you, spent 8 points into it still freezes to death unless near 3 campfire with cloth armor. Also standing in houses require a lot of fire to keep warm.

  • Increase fortitude resistance to elements
  • House give resistance to all elements

2. Acid Rain: Rain comes together with cold fronts, as mention cold was already a huge issue and kills you a lot, being wet makes it even worse. I died in a warm freeport because a cold front with rain came. It is savage. Also spawning in rain 100% wet, 1 nano second in rain 100% wet.

  • Make wetness scale linear instead of 100% wet when outside.
  • The skill tree for resistance to coldness in water should apply to the coldness applied by the wetness bar. If wet you resist the extra coldness a lot better. Right now it is not even noticeable.

3. Building: It was not nice in ARK and since the game is more or less an exact copy it is still a pain. The use of T and Q to bring snap points and so forth barely noticeable and sloped half wall has a right and left config and it is pain in butts to pay attention to when to use the right one.

  • Automate the half sloped walls to fit for left and right.
  • Either make better visual for the use of T and Q instead half opacity white in left bottom corner or bring back old ARK building with blueprints instead of T
  • Loom is huge scale it down! looks like a big shop.
  • Longer time to pick up or always able to pick up.

4. Vitamine: So yes super cool idea but don't really work? I guess you want cooking to be a huge thing although the vitamine destroys it. You eat one source to the rim of overeating and vitamine overeating. The deplition of vitamine is far less than hunger. You get hungry much much quicker and whopsie daysie you are poisoned for eating to much of same vitamine. This can kill you.

  • Remove damage from overeating same source of vitamine
  • Sync vitamine depletion together with hunger depletion
  • Make skill of lesser vitamine depletion to also make hunger deplete lesser.

5. Boats: They are bad, it is so hard to sail them! Anchor is impossible, you need to find that hidden spot with small text, sails well you need to navigate through the worst interface menu of all games to find rotation and sail lower and raise buttons. Instead you could bound them to the actual buttons.

  • After pressing E on sails use W and S to raise and lower sails. Hold E to get Massive interface where you can quick lower or quick raise. Will make it more easier to sail.
  • Afer pressing E use A and D to turn around sail to Left and Right. Will make it much easier.
  • Sloops hole in middle totally useless unless hiding from acid rain. Can't build anything down there or take part of fire warmth.
  • Add visual anchor spot to press E on,
  • If stuck on land have sound effect and increase the turn speed for easier unstuck.
  • When sailing instead of only a small picture of showing wind and sails, add some sort of wind blowing in a certain direction. Make a fancier picture.
  • More animation and sounds during sailing. Like more water splashing against the boat when more rough seas and more bounce up and down on the waves with sounds of boat splashing down after a big wave.

6. Death: So there is a lot of glitches when it comes to death. If you die many times it clips through environment and you cant reach it.

  • Fix the body clipping through building, minerals, boats and ground.
  • Transfer all items button for all inventory management
  • Make the death beam smaller and more centralized.
  • Death beam animation of skull need improvement.

7. Resources: Well it is not that bad but some remarks here. When using sickle you get berries from berry bush and fiber from fiber bush. Why not get fiber from all bushes increase the rate of fiber gathered. Specially in the cold biome from cotton bushes barely noticeable.

  • Increase fiber gain from using Sickle.
  • When you harvest stone as an example you can hit anything near that stone. I got killed by a pack of elephants because I harvested stone on the opposite side of where an elephant stood.
  • Spears also hits everything in its surrounding even behind you. Once again elephants killed me because I tried to kill a chicken!

 

As a last mention please be sure to at least try to optimize things. 100 GB disk space and computers can barely run it. My friend gets black skyboxes and I run below 60 fps with GTX 1060 3GB where I could run ARK with almost 60 FPS with much higher settings in graphics. To me it seems to be the water causing a lot of problems.
