I was talking with the guys on our PixARK server today about my plans for what I want to do next in the game.
I've decided I want to build a base on the back of a brontosaurus! That has always been a goal of mine, even before I bought the game, but now it's time to make this a reality.
How's that going to happen? Well, on our server the brontos are on a different continent. That means we'll have to tame some massive manta-dino and strap a platform on its back. Then we'll have to tame a bronto and walk it onto that platform, and 'sail' it back to our continent.
The title of this post pretty much says it all. According to Steam I’ve put in 53 hours into PixARK so far, and it really feels like I haven’t scratched the surface.
Progression was really slow at first. We were surviving (well, mostly) with spears and wood logs. We were running from just about every monster imagineable. Then we started taming some dinos. It started slow with Ptero, which basically allowed us to mow down bunny rabbits. Then it grew to bigger game.
Using our strategy of carrying a player in the Ptero’s claws, we advanced to taming Argentavis. Those bigger birds basically allowed us to protect ourselves against most predators who might wander into our area, but most important to hunt things like Gem Spiders and other monsters in that tier. From there, it was only a few days until we were in the big game.
I was suuuuper excited to learn that I could pick people up using the talons on my Pteranodon! When I discovered this was possible, we quickly put it to work for us.
By picking up my friends, we were able to kite the Argentavis! These massive birds are extremely aggressive, and really dangerous under normal circumstances. As you can see pictured above, we used a Pteranodon to keep the Argentavis just out of striking range while the guy being carried pummels it with sleeping darts.
Some clever kiting around our base usually landed those birds sleeping in a safe spot after about 20 arrows.
We were able to tame a small army of them, and even leveled off a few of them in order to make the Argentavis saddles.
I'm having lots of fun figuring out lots of unorthodox ways of surviving this treacherous dinosaur world.
I thought it would be cool to show you guys where we're at with our PixARK server. A couple of our Keen and Graev Community members haven't picked up the game yet, or are on the fence, so this will act as a a little bit of bait to lure them in.
The video is the gist of it all and speaks plenty for itself, but here's a quick rundown.
PixARK is my new favorite game. It's like the uldimate sandbox experience, combining Minecraft with Dinosaurs and all sorts of building and gadget stuff that I enjoy.
We have a server for the Keen and Graev Community going. Definitely let me know if you want to join us! We would love to have you.
I want to share some of the progress I'm making.
