Useful Ark Links

Useful Ark Links
Here's a list of links I have bookmarked for easy access to that information you often need at a moments notice while playing Ark.

Ark Patch Notes - ... tch-notes/

Your list of subscribed mods for Ark sorted by the last updated - ... astupdated

Taming Calculator -
This is a super useful tool for taming. It can tell you how long it will take with different kinds of taming food, how many darts or arrows it will take to down the creature, and even has timers for starve taming, or when to give narcotics. NOTE: The CC Servers are currently set at a 15 taming multiplier, and 1.0 (default) food rate multiplier. Be sure to change the multiplier since this changes all the stats and info on this page.

Kibble Info -
On this page you will find how to make kibble and which kibble each dino requires.

Breeding -
Everything you need to know about breeding.

Dye Recipes -
Each dye is created in a cooking pot with a water source in it, or in an industrial cooking pot.

Sweet Veggie Cake Recipe -
Sweet Veggie cake is used to tame Achatinas (snails), or Ovis (sheep). It is also the only food Achatinas eat. Sweet Veggie cake can also be used to force feed herbivores to heal them as opposed to force feeding carnivores meat to heal.

Bug Repellant Recipe -
Bug repellant will make you neutral to all bugs including Meganeura (dragonflys), Titanomyrma (ants). It will make Araneo (spiders), Arthropluera (centipedes), Onyc (bats), Manta, and Mantis passive-aggressive (will not attack unless touched or obstructed). It is also the kibble for Pachyrhinosaurus.

Achievements -
All skins (hairstyles, hats, etc) are now gained through achievements. This is a listing of all achievements and what they unlock.

Image to Sign Converter - ... converter/
Bring any image into Ark as a painting for signs, billboards, and flags!

Navigate to your steam\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\MyPaintings directory. If you can't see a MyPaintings folder you can either make the folder yourself or save a painting in the game so that it makes the directory.

The file name has to be in the form paintingname_objectname, if you want to use multiple images with the same name you need a number at the end for each file, e.g. name_Sign_Large_Metal_C

Example names:
Wooden Billboard -- (YourPaintingsName)_Sign_Large_Wood_C
Metal Billboard -- (YourPaintingsName)_Sign_Large_Metal_C
Single Flag -- (YourPaintingsName)_Flag_SM_Single_C
Multi Panel Flag -- (YourPaintingsName)_Flag_SM_C
Wall Canvas -- (YourPaintingsName)_Sign_PaintingCanvas_C

Any questions please feel free to post them!

Thanks for this, DT! I think this deserves a pin (even though I don't play Ark, haha)! (Hey, now that I think about it, this would be a good idea to do for every CC game...)

Thumbs up! :thup:
