  1. If you want to play on an exceptional unofficial server join the Gaming Alliance servers based in Australia Gaming Alliance has over 600 people in discord and runs 40+ servers. All servers are free to play however donations can be made via Patreon and are greatly appreciated by the server admin/owner. These servers are not risky rentals. The hardware is owned, updated and maintained by the admin and are state of the art. This is not my server, I merely play on it, but I have been playing numerous titles on the Gaming Alliance servers for over 3 years and the Atlas cluster is very high quality with a fair and trustworthy admin. Having played Atlas since release, on both official and unofficial, I can state that this is the best server cluster I have ever played on. The 3x3 map is player designed, using selected biomes and islands to provide a full Atlas experience. Great PvP community (no griefers), great rates and as I said, trustworthy long term admin. ---> GamingAlliance.Net|3x3|3x|PvP|SmallTribes <--- 3 x Gathering 3 x XP 3 x Taming/Breeding Mode: PvP PvP Window: 3hrs Tribes: Limited to 6 players per tribe (unlimited alliances) 1 x Freeport (no pvp on spawn island) Freeport has no XP limitations Player Food/Water Drain: 50% Structure Pickup Time: 60s Tribe Name Change Limit: 15 days (so make it count) No building bases on starter island Total Skill Points: 1290 Max Level: 151 Unlimited respec Mods: Unlock Powerstones Wiped: 5/Oct/2019 -FIND OUT MORE HERE- https://www.gamingalliance.net DISCORD details on website

    Please fix stasis feeding bugs

    I have bred two bears in the last two nights and fed them to juvenile age, and each time I filled the food trough with food (6k berries) and logged off leaving them to grow. Both times I have logged in 6 hours later and the juvenile bears have starved to death, and the troughs are empty. The trough is meant to make the food decay 4 times slower. Please look at the tame animals system in your game urgently. Breeding shouldn't be easy but also shouldn't so buggy as it wastes a significant amount of time, which turns gamers away. Maybe introduce a nanny like the S+ mod for Ark, or a baby/juvenile specific food trough or barn that can only be accessed at tier 3 breeding that raises them offline.

    Alphas STILL killing the game

    +1 to this, and it is not just alphas. The island I am on has ridiculous mobs of predators. Tonight I was on my lvl 30 bear which was HP levelled and a lvl 14 wolf attacked. The wolf consistently stayed at the rear of the bear and as they run faster than the bear I was circling and made no difference. It knocked half the hp out of the bear before I killed it. I was unable to walk the bear backwards during the fight as the wolf was half way inside the bears body. Once I killed it a second wolf arrived, as did a giant snake and two spiders. The fight was unwinnable and the bear died. It only took half an hour to tame the bear but the travel to and from an island to get it made the time investment well over an hour. It is just not worth it, the mobs are unmanageable.
  4. Full details from the admin: We have a 3x3 PvP cluster; Freeport is PvE so new spawns can't be griefed and can be used for trade and resources. All other maps are PvP, we are averaging 40-50 people on the cluster, lets make it more <3.

    What are your 3 biggest issues with the game?

    I play on an Australian PvP 3x3 cluster with slightly increased harvest rates and PvE Freeport spawn area, that also has regional lockouts and max 5 in a tribe so the majority of the issues mentioned are fixed for us. I will however add these: Transition between regions for bigger ships: On unofficials the transitions between regions has bugs and sometime the ships cannot cross. This is obviously debilitating and needs to be fixed. I agree with the animal mobs comments. I live on an equatorial island where everything is a predator and you cannot move outside my walls, even with plate and firearms. I often see an alpha spider, wolves, tigers and scorpions all patrolling together in a group. If anyone is interested in the server I am playing on PM me, it is significantly better than officials and is a really good community.
  6. Please remove the cooldown on the hotbar weapons. waiting 10 seconds for a bow or a spear after you have recovered your items is crazy, particularly as the mobs are so fast, so aggro and don't leave your corpse. Thanks

    Tips for solo players ? (PVP server)

    Sorry mate you are wrong. You have merely chosen the wrong unofficials. The server I am on is stable with a very active admin who runs a fair and equitable community and has run Ark servers (and other games) for three years. Have fun.

    Tips for solo players ? (PVP server)

    I play solo and after a rough start in the game I want to state from the outset that I play on a 3x3 unofficial PvP with slightly increased rates. This server has made the game enjoyable for me as I live in Australia and officials were giving me pings of 1400+. PM me if anyone wants the server details. In response to Talona's question I offer the following: Officials are a big community but with that comes griefers, trolls and different time zones so players are at their prime when you are offline. Try and find a decent sized unofficial with increased harvest rates and unlimited respec like I did. Respec is very important. Build right on the shoreline, but build a shipyard right in front of your claim. Using the H button, build behemoth gates all the way around your claim area. Respec to increased harvest and harvest everything Respec to building and build stone everything. Build a stone taming trap Respec to beastmaster 3 and tame a few high level predators. You will die repeatedly kiting them to your trap but stick with it. Put them on aggressive in your base but not wander. and have them follow a passive. Use sloops with speed sails. Solo sail and use half walls in the hull to build a floor out of ceilings and install smithy and storage. Sloops are an affordable loss as are shipyards. Respec and build armour, respec and build guns, respec and captain your ship. Don't get attached to your gear and enjoy the game! It's not a 2nd job it's entertainment so don;t take it seriously. Good luck solo colleague. PM me your location as even though the server I am on is based in Australia we have US and French players logging in with better pings than official.

    OP predators...

    Tonight I had a tame lvl 23 tiger and lvl 40 wolf on aggressive inside my base walls on guard duty. I watched both get killed my a lvl 9 wolf which ran through the closed gates. These are large wood gates mind you. My tames were hitting much harder than the wolf, and they both died. Please fix the mobs.

    OP predators...

    Press H and build large gates around your claim boundary. It will give you some respite until the devs eventually fix the mobs. Mine took 24 gates to surround. It's an old Ark trick from the days where you did the death relay every 5 minutes.

    Just when you thought it was safe on land

    Have a look at https://www.gamingalliance.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=179&p=359#p359. It is Australia based but we have players from US and France on our Ark servers so just try the ping, The admin has run Ark servers for years and has tweaked a really well balanced cluster for Atlas. It is a 3x3 PvP map but starter region is PvE and greater increased harvest for the new spawns to establish and set out. Max tribe is 5 to prevent steamrolling.
  12. If you are in Australia and NZ and are looking for a decent PvP server, have a look at https://www.gamingalliance.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=179&p=359#p359 for server info and map of Gaming Alliance's 3x3 Atlas cluster. I played officials and it was a nightmare with pings of 1400+. I tried a lot of australian unofficials and they were laggy, rates were unbalanced or they were full of trolls and griefers. I went to Gaming Alliance as played their servers for two years in Ark and knew they were the best unofficial. I got pings of 49-50 (I am in South East Qld, Australia). The game was suddenly playable. The admin for Gaming Alliance is very experienced in running Ark servers and has tweaked the Atlas settings, it has increased rates but in a balanced manner that makes the game challenging yet keeps it fun. The spawn region is PvE and has higher rates than the other regions but also has rules preventing bases or galleons being built - it is a spawn island only so people can start up and leave to the PvP regions to establish a base. It is a great community, lots of fun and everyone works together as well as some well mannered and hilarious PvP action. Small tribes only, max 5, and has it's own discord. Check it out you won't be disappointed.
  13. I don't disagree with you. The 2 dimensional communication of forums makes things look bigger than they are. I have dealt with it, in fact it is no big issue, but I have a right as a consumer to voice my disappointment that all the learning from Ark has not been applied to this prior to EA release. At the end of the day I really don't care as it is only a computer game, but deep down I would have liked to have seen it to be a more positive release. It still only has 28% positive reviews on Steam, it could have been so much better.
  14. Just so you know, I mostly play EA games. I am very conversant with the development process and I as I stated I played Ark religiously since week one. The developers rely on people like you to be happy with the next shiny thing irrespective of the obvious fact that this was released without any consideration of the leanings from the Ark development process. I have seen all of these bugs, all of these complaints, and all of these arguments before in Survive The Ark forums. Thanks for your response, but I don't agree with you. Prior to release the developers should have at least upgraded the coding to minimise the issues already patched in Ark. You are welcome to pay good money for an EA game that carries the sins of the father if you want, but it is the time loss I don't like as my time is valuable, and re-visiting bugs that have already been sorted in a prior development of the same code is a waste.
  15. Thanks to everyone for their discussion. If this was in fact a ground up work with only the Ark engine driving it, then the devs need to communicate this and I will accept the issues as they stand and treat the game as a true early access development.
