Any of you guys play vidya? Check out ARK, you can tame Gigants and ride them and eat other dinos

>>3580996
I like ark but having to spend like 20+ hours just to be able to build a tiny base then even when you have a bunch of gear and stuff if you try to explore at all there’s a chance you’ll just get massively unlucky and die instantly, but if you cheat and take away the sweatiness it just gets kind of boring for me at least so im still trying to find the happy medium
>>
>>3580996
I currently play with some friends, without flyers this time.
Argents OP.
>>
>>3581006
That's fair. I quit for a long time when a glitch destroyed our base.

>>3581007
Did you ever try taming a bunch of the small fliers (name escapes me)?

You can attach explosives to them and have them swarm targets. It absolutely fucking devastates enemy bases if their AI doesn't shit the bed.
>>
>>3581006
You can mess with rates.
I prefer the standard rates for experience and gathering, but I don't care to play with standard taming or breeding rates.
Not sure what we currently play with.
I think it might be 5x taming rate.
The other stuff is fine for me, since I enjoy making gathering things more efficient, like building up infrastructure for it, easy to access forges, lighting, etc.
One thing I utilize when mass building stone structures is to gather stone with a doed, then thatch+wood on the back of a beaver, then I toss everything into a corner from their inventories, jump into that corner and press on the packaged items and pick them all up, when you pick up items from dropped packages you don't get stopped by the weight limit, so despite only having 100 weight, I can still pick up 6000 weight of stone, wood and thatch at once and then set myself to craft hundreds of structures.

Since the snapping mechanics are so broken it helps to place the frame with thatch first, and then replace it with wood/stone or whatever you prefer, or change in server settings so you can pickup structures(ideally I'd prefer to have it so you can only pickup structures for a period of time).

>>
>>3581011
>Did you ever try taming a bunch of the small fliers (name escapes me)?
Dimorphodons, the tiny pterosaurs you also have in your screenshot?
I've thought about taming a swarm and using controlling them with control groups, but I've yet to try it.
I currently just have 1 for protecting me from microraptors, and then like a dussin for producing eggs.

Bigger than t rex but doubtful much lighter build for agility and t rex would likely be able to tank it and fuck it up but iirc there is theories and maybe evidence that giganotosaurus hunted in packs

The rex had a more powerful bite, and the rex could take another rex bite.

i want to have sex with a dinosaur
>>
>>3584582
So the only way to cause damage during a bite is from crushing? Carnosaurs (look it up) couldn't rip sheets of flesh off their victims causing massive blood loss now?
Besides it doesn't matter. Rex lands first bite, yes rex probably wins. Giga lands first bite, giga probably wins. You don't get bitten in a vital area by either of these animals and just walk it off.

>>3584594
You're moving the goalpost.
Rex has survived a stronger bite than a giga bite(a rex bite), and then healed it, meaning that if the one opposite of the Rex gets a bite first on the Rex, which is even weaker than a Rex bite, then it isn't an auto win. It doesn't come down to who could land the first bite, as you claimed, since if the Giga lands the first bite, then the Rex isn't guaranteed to lose.

>>3583576
>there is theories and maybe evidence that giganotosaurus hunted in packs
Its just speculation, mostly based on the discovery of several Mapusaurus of different ages & sizes in one location. Not exactly a hard evidence, for all we know they could just be unrelated victim of say a flash flood or other natural disasters.

Though I understand the appeal, a hunting pack of giant predators would have been an amazing/terrifying sight if it happens to be true.

Is giganotosaurus a well known creature or is it one of those dinosaurs only known from a jaw fragment and a rib?
>>
>>3584929
>overrated
literally where, it never gets in movies, is lucky to show up in a few shitty games, is never talked about, and barely anyone knows it exists
>>
>>3584985
It got overrated by kids who played ARK and thought it was twice the size of T. rex but that's about it really
>>
>>3584985
Just because it doesn't appear everywhere in movies and video games doesn't mean it is not overrated along with all other 'scary cool theropods with sharp teeth' within circles of dinosaur lovers.

No, you're moving the goalpost. I said vital area. Yes we have evidence of rexes biting each other on the face, which was apparently heavily scaled, and it's questionable if these animals were really trying to kill each other or just jawing at each other like a lot of quarreling carnivores do to each other even today. There's no evidence of a rex having it's neck completely crushed by another and surviving.
On the other hand if a rex gets its throat ripped out by a giga or is crippled because the giga sliced through its thigh muscles, it's not like it's gonna just walk off like "oh well I still have the stronger bite lol, stay mad"

Or maybe the rex does manage to kill the giga with a crushing bite before dying itself from massive blood loss, in which case can we really say there's any "winner" in this fight? No.
>>
>>3585289
>No, you're moving the goalpost. I said vital area
That's what you moved the goalpost to.
You did just say bite.
And when called on that.
You changed your point to vital area.
>A giga vs rex fight would come down to who could land the first bite, just like pretty much all giant theropod autism-clashes. All these animals had the potential to deal out enormous damage with one bite.
Since you can't remember.
This is your post.
Which was countered.
Then you moved your goalpost to vital area, you slithering little nigger.

I have pretty high standards for figurines, the bones and other cutesy shit like what you see on the base of the top one is a dealbreaker for me even though it looks high quality. Second one looks like a kid's toy.
Pic related is something I'd consider buying if it 1. had a better pose, 2. if it was 700 dollars, and 3. the fucking paintjob (peanut butter skin with blue gums, what the fuck).

Obviously we're talking vital areas if we're talking about fatal bites you idiot. I was kind of hoping you'd be able to figure that part out on your own. Did you think we were discussing these things biting the tips of each other's tails off or something?
No, you didn't, but you have to pretend you did so you're able to "counter" me on something. Get fucked faggot.

I forget about Primeval. In retrospect season 3 isn't that bad, the creatures are pretty interesting too.

>>3586451
the same study that says T Rex was too heavy to run would preclude Giganotosaurus from running too and for the same reason, above a certain speed their leg bones start breaking. And Giganotosaurus didn't even have the advantage of fused metatarsals that Tyranosaurids had(see >>3584596
