ARK poop as planned suicide, and new dinos will add to the pile

    
47

If you learn nothing else today, you’ll have this: ARK: Survival Evolved’s poop was designed as a suicide measure. Seriously. According to Studio Wildcard co-founder Susan Stieglitz, she came up with the idea so players would have an out when they were stuck somewhere. This is why there is no /unstuck button! She said, “If you’re trapped in a room, it’s the only conceivable biological function you could kill yourself with. Originally, we were debating putting in a suicide key to escape situations like that.” Now you know. At least the resource is useful for other things in game besides death; it also makes fertilizer and oil.

If you are hungry for more info, there are three new dinosaurs coming in patch v237, slated for March 23rd. The Whooly Rhinos will be adding their contributions to the poop piles, and the waters will be far more dangerous with the Eurypterid (the killer lobster in the video below), and the Dunkleosteus. On top of that, the swamp and snow caves will be added to the map, and tribes will be able to set ranks as well as customize permissions for those ranks.

ARK can also be set to run in different languages. To use one, set it once in the “Languages” tab of the Game Properties within your Steam Client; once done, it will be automatically chosen for all future ARK installs. Check the official patch notes for a full list of languages.

Qarran We considering your character just pinches a loaf wherever he is standing and no matter what he is doing, it’s kinda unsanitary to say the least.

The language localizations are now becoming a new form of griefing for others who do not have that language’s font/characters on their system.  There’s nothing like being harassed or griefed by |||||||||||

And suddenly, a group “wipe” has a totally different meaning.

ensvne Archebius Asylum would be all over that idea.  First the film Poop Wave.  Then Poop Wave 2: It Gets Deeper.  Then the crossovers start coming out staring with Poop Wave vs. Sharknado
