Some of these guys really are dense as gently caress. Like Lirik not connecting the dots that when you run it makes your water drain faster. Hes constantly collecting poo poo but not upgrading his character to create anything new. I can't believe this dude makes 6 figures a year. I've been cycling through the various streams and people are just making GBS threads in their hands and throwing it at people while not bothering to explore anything about the game. I've heard you can ride the flying dinos which sounds cool. I haven't seen any of the larger varieties yet.

I wish I could make 6 figures for playing video games and calling viewers idiots.

It looks like they gate taming bigger dinosaurs by making stuff like saddles dinosaur-specific, with each thing being locked behind a certain level. Makes sense. Biggest challenge to getting a flying one beyond that seems like knocking the thing out before it escapes into the air.

I think I'm going to allow myself to be cautiously optimistic about this game. It seems like a multiplayer survival game except actually fun

edit: I will never get bored of the characters' screams as they punch trees with their bare hands

True, but the game is minimum a year away from being done, so the UI has a long way to go.

I am so intensely tired of poo poo UIs that I'm not even willing to buy the alpha/EA/beta/whatever excuse at this point. A ton of games from the last three or four years have had loving awful, awful UIs, that technical difficulties of making them aside (because UI is mechanically hard to do, no question), look and function like shiiiiiit. And I'm tired of it. gently caress you, make a good UI, don't plaster the entire screen in 22 Ariel and giant pop-up Sims boxes for someone on mic.


E: And yes, before someone goes "you're still going to buy it Orv, you love this poo poo", yes I will, I have a serious goddamn problem and the only solution is more terrible survival games.

I actually don't mind the UI. It seems to me like it gets the job done and, at this early stage, that's probably the best approach to take. Kinda like how trees/rocks just fall through the world after destruction, yeah it looks weird but they probably realize the game isn't optimized and want to decrease server load.

Streamers are still playing, so I doubt it's some serious instability problem. Seems more likely that they realized that their servers are going to get slammed (a real shocker, right?) and are trying to figure out how to not have things burst into flames. Seems like they've done zero stress-testing, so I'm assuming it's going to be a disaster.

How is it going to be a disaster if there's going to be hundreds of private servers in a matter of minutes?

If the server browser can't cope, there will be an issue. I hope there's not an issue. I really do. I certainly don't want there to be one, since it's just frustrating for everyone. But concerns about day-one stability (with regard to traffic) seem more plausible than panic fixes as a reason to delay release. Maybe I'm wrong.

Dumping tips while we wait for release, gonna edit this to include more

quote:

Stim berries wake up things that are unconscious.
Narcoberries put them to sleep. It apparently makes taming longer too.

The first dino you can tame is basically a pack mule, but it runs quickly. Might be better to knock him out with a small group, unless you want the chase. I notice most people ignore this one.

Dilphosaurus is probably the best thing to go after once you have a few levels on you, makes a great guard pet and can help with hunting. Since you can have multiple dinos, might be wise to tame a few and then hunt larger dinos.

You can jump on the back of a turtle and beat the crap out of it with no problem.

The axe apparently gathers more stone than the pickaxe and the pickaxe gathers more wood than the axe.
If you break an item, Axe, pick, spear, w/e you don't need to open your inventory to craft a new one. If you have the materials you just press shift+the hotkey it's on and you will start crafting a new one.

Don't go inland until you are absolutely ready. There are T-Rexs and Raptors.

Don't go diving too far out or deep with low stamina. You need it to swim back to the surface and it wont regenerate while swimming!

You see those light things they go by 3 colors : white , green , purple

You can go to them and get some pretty good loot !
The white ones can be looted by anyone
The green ones can only be looted by someone level 15 and above
The purple one can be looted by people level 35 and above

I'd add to the berry thing that there's a button in the middle of the screen when you load up, say, a dinosaur's inventory with berries labelled "remote use." That's the force-feed button. Apparently the dinos won't eat the narcoberries on their own or something.

adding to this:

Quick Tip – Gathering: There is a difference between gathering with the pick and gathering with the hatchet. The pick allows for the gathering of “finer” resources and therefore is more likely (but not guaranteed) to gather thatch than wood from trees. The same goes for rocks where it gathers primarily flint, and animals where it tends to receive more meat. The hatchet is the reverse for all of those, prioritizing wood over thatch, stone over flint, and hide over meat.

Quick Tip – Leveling: By now you should have leveled up. You gain experience points for various activities, but also passively as time goes on. Every time you level up you get one point to increase your stats (health, movement speed, melee damage etc.) and a few Engram Points (EP). Engrams are essentially crafting recipes, which your character will keep permanently and can be used as many times as you like. For now, grab the hatchet as your first engram pick. As for stats, I recommend investing in Health or Fortitude early on. Maybe melee damage if you’re feeling like you’re going to be doing a lot of fighting. Health and Melee damage are pretty straightforward. Health increases your max HP and melee damage boosts you overall damage output with melee weapons. Fortitude (my usual first pick) is less clear cut. Fortitude is the general “toughness” of your character. Investing in it allows you to resist the harsh elements, which is nice early on as you won’t have clothes to help in that area until a bit later down the road. Fortitude also gives you a resistance to torpor, or level of unconsciousness, meaning all the players throwing punches are a bit less likely to knock you out.
