Not even any windows on your house, I'd get depressed living there
Il get workin on that
Pvp or pve?
Ah well to beat a dead horse, plant species x is the way to go, a lot more low maintenance and does the job just dandy. Saves time on resources too. Just get a dung beetle and toss poop into them so they can turn it to fertilizer. Have to leave them on wandering though so construct a small pen for them.
Cages are great for dung beetles.
All I’ve ever done is set the dung beetle to follow a Phiomia, no cages and no wandering animals.
Doesn’t the beetle have to be on wander to produce fert?
Yeah, set it to wander but whistle it to follow the Phiomia. Simples.
Jesus, easy there Django, easyyyyy… we don’t cage our beetles anymore! Beetleham Lincoln abolished that!🤦🏽♂️
Do they actually hold them now or is the rendering thing still a thing?
I’ve never had an issue with that. Been caging them for a few years, never lost one to the render issue. Before that we would build a little pen, and a few *did* slip through that way. 🤷♀️
Hopefully they fixed but I think it was more of an unofficial thing because official always had people around.
Basically it has to do with the render order, structures get loaded in last and dinos among the first. If you were the only one around and then left base the structures would unrender (not sure what the right term would be there lol) and your wandering dinosaurs would be able to walk away or your roof argy would fall through your base.
I always let them wander in the greenhouse like little gardeners
I cheat in the ammo because i just want to have a good time
Are you suggesting youve never seen a clueless bob in PVP? 😂
I love to use greenhouse walls and ceilings as my windows. The ceilings give a sun/moonroof kind of setup
Just out of curiosity, if a big dino decided to jump off the cliff above this house, as dinos occasionally do, what would happen?
1 dragon breath all the turrets are dead from the wood collapse
Thats why the heavy turrets are there also its singeplayer also structure hp is boosted
It’s single player. You don’t need turrets
Argy is in the area
Add a few more turrets just to be safe. Otherwise, they might kill your gigas
Ok thanks but it pauses when im offline thx for the tip
No giga is safe from the argys. Not even in singleplayer
It warms my heart how that became a persistent meme
Wait what? I'm new to the community, what's the meme here?
Somebody claimed that their tamed giga got killed by 7 wild argies attacking it. Even if the giga was on passive, it should have taken absolutely forever for that to happen and honestly hard to believe it actually happened.
Naturally, ever since that thread, reports of great many tamed giga being mauled by argies have surfaced, and we need to remind each other that we must protect our valuable, extremely OP tames from the terrors lurking in the skies above
"Not even the gigas survived"
Not only the men but the Women and children too
Time to place more turrets
Argy? New to ark so still learning
This should cover it for you. Ark has a ton of online resources, so Google can find an answer to almost any question (in regard to Ark) you could think of.
Argentavis... used to be called argy, but many (myself included) still use that term because it's easier to say
Just like triceratops, which used to be called "trike"... same story
Just knock the gigas out with a club….what is this? Your first day or something? Scrub
Clearly you’re new to ark…. The best way to knock out a giga is with your fists
Nah the best way to knock it out is with a dinowipe.
Knock it out of existence.
Only thing knocking gigas out of existence is argies
Russel Crowe fightin round the world style
Love this 😂😭
But you can passive tame gigas with cooked prime fish meat but the hitbox for it is hidden in it's left toe
Just use plant x
Whats plant x
Plant based turrets that use fertlizer as ammo (but not 1 to 1)
Ok thank you
Plant x is a seed you get bepending on your map. It is a vegan turret.
Hahaha nice but i rather use turrets
plants r just cheaper, they use fert extremely slow and have infinite ammo
Cool but is it availeble on ark
lots of dinos are pretty resistant to plant x and will only aggro them closer to your base.
trust me im a asshole i have abused this many times
Kill the fucking argy😂😂😂💀💀💀
I laughed at this. Remembering the the hood old days of getting ravaged by Argys
Bro I've played single player for years, I've never needed turrets or pants at all. In fact one time I built an entire wall of Tek turrets and spawned dinos in just to watch them get obliterated, that was the only time I have ever built a turret. The thing is all dinos on the map hibernate until you get close to them, so those argies near your base will never attack unless you are around and even then they have a small aggro range so they have to be close to you before they attack. It's really nothing to worry about. If they attack you will hear them screeching, just walk out and kill it. Or tame your own high level argy (which you will want anyway) and do a perimeter sweep every once in a while and kill all aggressive dinos in sight. With how small your base is, that will take all of like 10 seconds 🤣
I like turretz
Is it PVE?
Ye also sinleplayer
Whew buddy, I had a mini anxiety attack for you 😅😅😅
I always love building with a mix of stone and wood, and the occasional thatch in SP
The fuck did people downvote you for thos..? Youve replied to nearly EVERYONE thats posted in this thread with a positive constructive attitude. My addition for you only, as noone else will see this under your downvoted comment, is to take a look at mods sooner than later. A lot of stuff that will frustrate you with vanilla game can be fixed beyond with addons like super structures etc. Make building more intuitive and adds alot of quality of life stuff. Im typing this from my phone with wife looming over me to lots of typos. Also make sure to put those plant x raised on a pillar and ceiling around your house so they are same from small shit on the ground but also can shoot stuff your turrets wont be able to hit because of line of sight. Also you can change targeting sistance etc from options on the plant z themselves. Plant x is the only one that is hostile, of the plant turrents. Hace fun
I saw this fyi :)
Why do you have stone tools…
He creative moded the entire base for Reddit karma lol. One of the worst builds the sub has seen too but 500 upvotes LOL
It's nice,sorry but I'd really love to run a rhino through that lol
Please dont run a rino through my singleplayer houae also thank you
Your safe lol
This has to be a joke
Make it all stone
Useless if it was pvp
Because the wood?
Turret placement, all you have to do is run up to the side and your safe
Its singlapayer with boosted turret damage but yea true
And yes also because of the wood you wouldn't even have to run up to the side honestly you could destroy the whole roof really easily but it doesn't matter for singleplayer so build whatever looks the best to you
Your turrets are blind if something gets too close. Hope you have some guards on patrol
Im gonna replace the turrets
In pvp we put turrets on hatchframes so things can't get to the walls, you could incorporate that
Yeah, as far as turret placement, the best thing to do is use the giant metal hatch frames without the doors. The frame is so narrow that the turrets can shoot down close to them.
Thanks for the advice put i dont know if want to use it may ruin the astetic
Neebs: "Battle Barn"
Hahahaha nice one
Replace all the wood with stone, dinosaurs can’t damage stone very much
I have added twenty turrets
That’s smart maybe even a little too much but yeah replace all your wood with stone and replace the turrets
I like the tip but i dont wanna replace the wood i like the astheatic
Nice matchbox :)
drop a grenade on top from the cliff
Giant pigeon 😳? Seriously
Turrets on wood is not gud.
I'm loving reading through the comments and seeing the people giving serious critiques to an obvious joke post. Good stuff man.
Thank you but it isnt a joke
Wait, really? I can't tell if you're joking :/ but I'm sorry if that's the case, I thought you were doing this for comedic effect.
To answer your question, for single player it is a good build because if I remember correctly Argies can't damage wood and stone. But the turrets are a little overkill for argie prevention. The cost of ammo isn't efficient next to using the plants, as they require no ammo and upkeep.
Thb i cheat the ammo in i just want to have a good time taming dino and argie can damage wood but i think nothing above
Ironically I can’t tell if you’re joking or serious…
Post is a serious question tho
Its not a joke
I know that your post isn’t (aka the original post)
Too weak Material and the turrets can’t fire down. It PVPable
Its not pvp
Then it’s an nice build
Very noice sir!
Please tell me that this isn't pvp
It isnt pvp
Ok ty, stay safe<3
I like the way you did the roof corners, add a porch too it, I bet that would look nice!
Simple but efficient, better than my forend who just builds flat warehouse crates, doesn't even have levels
It looks cozy
It is cozy currently im making a balcony and adding windows
I like it like i like free ARB. If youre in pvp you can drop a stego right on top of that and rocket the roof and poof, your base is gone.
Its singles layer
It's good looking but if you're in pvp, ya ain't stopping anything once the turrets stop.
In pve though, it's safe enough that it's quite good for a base
Oh, then it's perfectly fine, creatures barely attack if you're in a base
Better than my builds at least
Pve, it's alright. Pvp, a stego or 2 with decent saddle and a few rockets could easily wipe the whole thing.
Why does everyone keep saying to use stegos on this you could easily run right up to the side or flame arrow it down who the hell would waste rockets on that lmao
Luckily its singleplayer and has 20 turrets
Then its a decent base, if you upgrade it all to at least stone. Good job!
I think it is cute!
make it into a throne room?
I will make a other building for that
Move the turrets to the ledge so it covers more ground, that placement is horrible.
Just make the roof stone. Raise baby’s in a smaller pen and cryo them to the outside area when they are juve or something. You’re wasting bullets and gas(or ele) powering those. I used to raise dinos on official near the snow beneath a cliff. The amount of times mammoths or Yuty’s came into the base was ridiculous and yet we never lost a baby or Dino to them. Leave a couple Rexes outside and they’ll kill everything
If you're just killing argies, you can save a lot of metal and gunpowder by using plant X instead.
Looks nice but can't be used if there's any type of attack
Thank you also the attackers are dead i have placed a lot more turrets evrywhere
I like it.
It’s really good for a inexperienced builder but bad for a experienced builder
Mostly fine for single player. But you should consider putting giant hatch frames (minus the hatch) around the lower edge of the roof and placing the turrets on those. It will make for a lot less blind spots. It would also be a good idea to gate/spike off the ledge above you and establish a perimeter wall that is far enough out so as not to draw agro closer to the center from anything at the outer perimeters edge.
Thank you for advice i actualy did that after somebody else said it
As a solo player, this is beautiful.
For pvp? Bad
Heard to many times
I like it
Clean building buddy! Nice
Dope wish you could craft element on mobile
You cant? What os the lategame recource?
I know you can’t craft element I wish you could what do you mean late game recourse
Like the element from normal ark what is the lategame or end of game super armor made of
The late game amour is riot for people who don’t know how to run dungeons and the late game recourse is metal
Question for everyone here, I just got the game and I have a computer that can run pretty much any game with the highest settings,I’m getting my game minimized and my screen turns black for a second every 10 minutes,I even put everything on the lowest settings and it still doesn’t change anything,what do I do
What map is this giant pigeon on?
Ah ok the giant eagle things, just keep your distance and not to horrible. I guess unless it's a joke I don't know why a giga would fear them 🤷
You really don't need turrets if you have wood walls.
I like turrets
Me too my friend.
Needs more windows
I did something like this on Ark Forever. However it was metal and you could make it look like any sub material. Ao i made everything look like wood / thatch.
Caught a few people off guard lol.
Looks fine for an asia pvp server
Dont get the joke
Honestly dude looks like its ur first time😂😭
Raided in 10 mins or less ty for the juicey loot
Easy raid for sure, a monkey and a rocket launcher
Better hope those turrets don’t shoot anything that can break that wood after agro
14 K damage per shot is good enough
If its singleplayer, 2 heavy turrets its more than enough and will save you fuel. You wont be under siege by crazy dinos unless you accidentally bring a giga home.
I dont even use turrets on my bases anymore in sp just to save those resources for something else.
Nice advice little too late i already added more turrets and a secret (i cheat in bullets dont want to craft them yea im lazy and just want to have a good time)
Ah fair play then
