Because my baby raptor's hunger bar can never be full, since he's a baby, he just keeps eating nonstop out of the trough. Is this a glitch or meant to be? Because he's gone through about meat in like 8 minutes.

If you eat 10 times your body weight over the course of 5 minutes then you'd definitely be big in no time. Yeetmeister View Profile View Posts. If a baby raptor of that size really is supposed to munch through 3 entirely full feeding troughs und still dying afterwards then something must be wrong Garrus View Profile View Posts.

So I came back, started trying to light them all again, then the egg disappeared. Now I have tons of meat I actually cried when the raptor died because I sat there for a couple of hours just nursing it and watching it and making sparkpowder to light campfires.
I got a picture with his mother and father right before he died so I'll post here in memorium.
I took you to meet your mother and father and they were really happy to see you, upon walking back inside the house, you died because you're a little fatass, but I loved you anyway.

I guess I won't have a living babby rex in the morning.
You probably won't to be honest, it ate through ridiculously fast, and they can only hold 5 in their inventory. At the current rate you'd need about meat for one dino to reach the next growth stage. And that's just for a rather low level raptor. I think a rex will need exponentially more. Surt View Profile View Posts. Yeah it's just crazy.By DemerusFebruary 7, in General Discussion. This bug is getting out of hand and continues to happen for months.
This is a pic of a dino refusing to eat. It started when they reworked how stasis affects dinos back when they fixed the floating babies glitch.
Experienced this for the first time last night when I was raising some dodo chicks. Every few minutes while I'm incubating other eggs I circle back and check on the already hatched babies to make sure they have plenty of berries in their inventory, and when I got to the youngest one I found with a shock that she was on the verge of starving to death with an inventory full of untouched food.
I panicked and force-fed her until her food meter and health went back up so she was okay. But for a few minutes she still wasn't eating on her own.
I then put her on follow and walked her around a bit and then turned follow off, and lo and behold she started eating again and grew up as normal. So try that if it happens again? Well if it has something to do with stasis, then Im not sure why my giga was at 0 food while i was standing right next to it for the entire evening rendered.
It's tried starving itself twice now. I'm curious For instance Its might hint at whether the issue is with the dino not eating, or the food not being registered as available for eating.
Well not necessarily to do with stasis, I was just stating when the bug popped up. I remember that time very vividly. They actually reworked baby food drain but at the same time reworked how dinos in stasis are affected by food drop if you remember - people would take over pearl caves on the island and raise gigas in em because stasis'd dinos used to lose next to 0 food At that time if someone didnt have a spot to float the babies they would do this. I put the baby on follow, walked her around a bit then took follow off, and she started eating normally again.
It shouldn't be necessary, this should work properly as breeding is a huge part of the game to be broken like this. That is the problem. Sometimes you are not around to notice as it is impossible to constantly check each individual baby every minute to make sure they are eating when their inventory has enough food to last them.
If the devs are unable to find an actual fix they should at least make it so that baby dinos start crying or something when they're at 0 food so you know theyre starving If I recall it always seemed to work itself out of it by taking food out and putting back in a few times but I never lost a dino to it that I remember.
It would be nice if it could be fixed. Hopefully you haven't lost any valuable dinos to it. It happened to us a few times but since the last patch the rate of this seems to be increased. This weekend we lost 3 rex 2 gigas and 1 velona Literally just this raptoring second one of our gigas starved because of the bullpoop.
How the hell do we get the devs to pay attention to this??? For new players, stasis describe one area on the map that is low processed and as soon as a player enters the area normal processing resumes.
Since none of these can explain the bug. Something else make ARK forget to process some creatures.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam. Store Page.

Thanks in advance! Showing 1 - 11 of 11 comments.
Nobody has found a work around. Eventually, they'll click back into synch, their values will jump to where they should be, and start eating again. Originally posted by snowbear :. Someone on my server thought raising the maturation timer would help, as the babies would grow up faster. My question if I did that, would be how to adjust the imprint modifier to correlate to the newer, faster time.
Unless that happens normally. Housatonic View Profile View Posts. We've been using the water trick on my unofficial server - have the babies float in water to reduce their food intake. We haven't had any die this way that I'm aware of, but most of those babies were rexes, which have a big food buffer to begin with.
However, vanmeteran's suggestion would be my first suggestion as well.(Patched) ARK - NEW Snow Owl breeding method! - (NO MEAT / MILK / VENOM!)
I'm purely trying to avoid that since I strive to have default rates on my server. Per page: 15 30 Date Posted: 8 May, pm. Posts: Discussions Rules and Guidelines. Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising, and problematic harassment, fighting, or rude posts. All rights reserved.

View mobile website.Breeding is a feature of ARK: Survival Evolved that allows players to breed improved creatures through Dinosaur Eggs with non-mammals and gestation with mammals.
Eggs do not have an owner, so it's possible to steal eggs laid by other survivors' dinos. Newborn creatures are simply claimed imprinted on and do not require the usual taming processes associated with wild creatures.
Anyone can claim a newborn. This must be done promptly, along with feeding it, as babies can die quickly from hunger. The first step of breeding is having two opposite sex creatures of the same species for mating.
Original and Aberrant Dinosaur variants count as separate species, and as such, cannot be cross-bred. Most creatures can be bred; those few that cannot are listed at the bottom of this article. See Sterile Creatures for more information. Note: One of the developers Cedric ComplexMinded confirmed that there is no creature in game with ability to affect the chances of mutations, twins, triplets etc.
The mating range varies between species and is loosely based on the size of the adult creature. Building a pen of a suitably small size to keep the wandering animals within mating range of each other is one common approach. If you do not want to build a pen, you can go onto the creature commands and enable mating, this will make the creatures stand still and then they will start to mate. This halts all dinos within the area to stop moving, even ones that are enabled to wander.
It's best to use the whistle every time the dino starts to move again, or to prevent the dinos from ever moving, whistle constantly. While this method doesn't need a pen, it does need you or a tribe member to stay there and constantly whistle.
This may be more helpful if one survivor is constantly whistling not to move, and another survivor enables the creatures nearby to wander and mate. In this way, you can achieve mass breeding in an area without ever building a pen, or moving creatures.
Alternatively, you can set the dinos you want them to mate to that state without the burden of them wandering around. To initiate breeding of a pair by yourself, whistle both creatures to follow you, then enable wandering or mating. Then, disable following on both. This prevents them from walking around in the meantime. Then no mating pen is needed. When the above conditions are all met, a beating heart icon appears over the heads of the mating creatures, and a mating bar appears on the female's HUD look at the female to reveal the HUD.
The HUD also indicates which creature they are mating with. Ensure the mating animals remain close together, as otherwise the mating stops. Due to server lag and game mechanics, the mating bar does not continuously update in real time. Additionally, mating multiple females to a single male at the same time can make this worse. Patience is advised as the bar moves in leaps and bounds. Once the mating bar is completed, non-mammalian females drop a single fertilized eggand mammalian females start gestating.
If there are too many tamed dinos in the server or in the tribe, the pair will refuse to mate until there is a free spot. Females cannot mate again until a mating wait interval has passed Cryofreezing them will still continue the mating interval cooldown.
This interval is indicated on their HUD.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam. Store Page. Global Achievements. Sequens View Profile View Posts. Hi, I just hatched a wyvern egg and started the process of raising the baby wyvern.
Its food was fairly low from the get go, and when placing milk in it's inventory, it won't consume it. I know the milk is used for imprinting, but do I force feed the milk to the baby or do I wait for the food to drop low enough and it will drink the milk on it's own provided it's in its inventory? Also, will it give me any type of signal that it needs milk for hunger reasons, not imprinting if there is no milk in its inventory?
I'm playing solo on official server, and therefore primarly looking for advice from other people who have experience raising wyverns on official servers as unofficials can be vastly different.

Wyvern Milk gives the baby food, so it won't eat it by itself until it has lost food - just like any other creature won't eat any food unless it has lost the amount of food that would be given from whatever it is eating. With babies, this can be a littl confusing though, as when you look at their stats they have a much higher maximum food than what they can actually have, as they only have a portion of their maximum food which increases slowly over time as they grow - if you go over their allocated food, it will drop instantly to their temporary maximum.
This makes it diffcitul for Wyverns to feed especially low level ones becuase if you hatch a baby and it only has a possible food of say It will only eat when you force feed it or imprint it with wyvern milk. Originally posted by Ace Ackbar :.

I think it doubles the "holding" time.
Just put it in the baby or whatever dino you have holding the milk. I used an Argent to hold the milk we got from an Alpha and it worked well. Though we had to go out and get a whole lot more because our egg had triplets in it!

I tried doing that and force fed it wyvern milk which did give it a lot of food and I maxed it with 6 or so bottles, HOWEVER literally 3 seconds later the food went back down to what it was before I wasted 6 bottles of precious wyvern milk on it I tried it again and the same thing happend.
I tried it with other creatures and they also lose the food I force fed them shortly after. Is this a glitch or an actual game mechanic? And if its a glitch, anyone know a way to fix it and stop wasting my baby food? The author of this topic has marked a post as the answer to their question. Click here to jump to that post.

Their food capacity may read several thousand, but in reality they'll only be able to fill up a small fraction of that, with more unlocking as they grow older. The reason you have to forcefeed a wyvern to start off with is because wyvern milk actually gives it more food than it will have unlocked by the time it starts starving on certain rates.
So if your baby wyvern can only go up to food, then it won't eat the wyvern milk on its own, since it gives food. If you try to max out the food beforehand, it'll just drop right back down to whatever threshold the baby is at.
You fed too much at once. Baby dinos maintain a fraction of their food stat which only increases slowly to match that of the adult version of the stat ie what you basically see as the max number. As an arbitrary numbers example. If max is again this is just a simplification to explain the system.

View mobile website.The Bloodstalker is an aggressive creature in ARK Survival Evolved that shoots webbing to latch onto prey and reel them to it while on the ceiling or at the walls of the trees or caves.
The Bloodstalker kills it's prey by draining it's blood and impaling it with retractable spikes in its feet. The Bloodstalkers web attack has a very long range and can grab most creatures its size or smaller. They also are in a close vicinity with one another making avoiding one very difficult if you happen to be in their area. Very rarely, if they are found on the ground, they will attack like any other aggressive creature, but may try to shoot webbing similar to when they are on the ceiling.
Much like Gerridae family of insects, the Bloodstalker is able to skate across the water but by pressing x you can swim. The Bloodstalker resembles a giant spider, though it has many bizarre and alien features that clearly make it distinct.
It has 12 limbs in total. The 6 mantis-like arms are jointed and having sharp spikes on them for grasping and holding prey. The 6 squid-like legs are very long and tentacle like, with webbing to allow better maneuverability in the air. Each leg has a foot with distinct parts. The back of each foot has 2 spines.
The main tubular part of the foot has 4 small claws and a large retractable spike. While the body is not segmented like an arthropod, it does have an abdomen, main body, and head.
All limbs attach to the underside of the body. The entire back is plated with chitinous armor and several strange pillar-like protrusions. The abdomen has what appear to be spiracles for breathing and has jagged spike at the end. At each shoulder of the creature lies a nozzle that shoots out webbing.
The face is armored and bears 4 compound eyes and a huge, stabbing proboscis for sucking blood. This section displays the Bloodstalker's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Bloodstalker. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Bloodstalker will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme.
Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID. Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool. The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps.
