Quick Inventory Saves Time:
You can conveniently re-craft a quick key item that breaks by pressing the quick inventory
key, provided you possess the required materials. Hold down the quick key for a moment and
you'll see a list of the items needed, as well as your current stock. If you would prefer,
of course, you can move the item into your regular inventory and repair it. That option is

Collecting items:
Destroy a storage box and the items it contains will drop in a bundle that you can collect.

Replacing items:
After an item breaks, you can re-craft it quickly if you already have the necessary 
ingredients. Hold [Quick Inventory] to see the required items and their availability in your
inventory. Note: This will be more expensive than the normal method of moving the item into 
your regular inventory before repairing. 

Beginner Tips:
* If you are just beginning an adventure in ARK: Survival Evolved, keep the following tips 
  in mind to get started on the right foot.
* Pay attention to the order in which you place things. For example, you should place a 
  foundation before you place a ramp. Try to do it the other way around and you'll learn
  that it's not possible. 
* If you destroy a storage box, its contents will drop in a bundle that you can take 
  with you. 
* Be sure to use the right tools, depending on what you want to achieve. For instance, 
  you can use a hatchet on a tree if you're looking for wood, or a pickaxe if your goal
  is more thatch. If you're demolishing stone, a hatchet produces that resource. 
  A pickaxe will increase your flint reserves.
* You can more easily tame a dinosaur if you let it get really hungry, since it will 
  appreciate the food you provide a lot more on an empty stomach.
* If you want to ride a dinosaur, keep in mind that its weight, your weight, and the 
  weight of any materials all work against its movement. If everything together weighs
  too much, the dinosaur might not be able to go anywhere.

Here can you find everything about breeding in ARK.

Breeding is a feature of the game that lets players breed creatures using Dinosaur Eggs with 
Non-Mammals or by Pregnancy with Mammals.

Eggs will not have an owner until hatched, so it's possible to steal other player's eggs. 
Once hatched/born, dinos/mammals can simply be claimed and do not require the traditional 
violent taming.

Once hatched you must imprint on the dino and or mammal. This basically claims the animal. 
This must be done promptly, along with feeding it, as babies can die quickly from hunger.

The fertilized egg itself only begins Incubation when dropped, not in Inventory. When 
dropped, a Fertilized Egg won't spoil, but to incubate it must be kept at a certain 
temperature range depending on the species (this also factors in insulation). If outside 
of this temperature range, it won't make incubation progress, and it will lose "Fertilized 
Egg Health" over time and be destroyed if zero. This is all indicated on the HUD when 
looking at a fertilized Egg, and its description also tells you its Parents.

-=Incubation Tips=-
Temperature gradients can be very extreme between regions, easily reaching 20 °C or more. 
Look if there is some region nearby where temperature drops closer to eggs' ideal point 
(usually in the biome that spawned the creature).

Use a heat source to regulate the egg's temperature. Standing Torch.png Standing Torch, 
Torch.png Torch or Campfire.png Campfire and industrial cooker works well. However they 
all have the downside of providing negative Heat Tolerance, making careful management 
necessary. It's best however, to use one or more Air Conditioner.png Air Conditioner, 
Kairuku.png Kairuku or Dimetrodon.png Dimetrodon as they provide the necessary heat while 
not decreasing (or even increasing) Heat Tolerance. Six Air Conditioner.png Air Conditioner 
should work for all eggs but eight is ideal for when there is a heat/cold storm. You might 
need up to 14 Air Conditioners for larger eggs such as the Giganotosaurus.png Giganotosaurus, 
the Wyvern.png Wyvern in Scorched Earth or Ragnarok, or Rock Drake.png Rock Drake in 
Aberration (which requires 32 Air Conditioners at least due to very cold incubation

Fertilized Eggs don't lose Egg Health while picked up, so you can keep them in your 
Inventory or in a preserving bin/refrigerator, if you are temporarily unable to achieve 
the appropriate temperature needed for Incubating. This can be very useful, if you settled 
in a region with extreme temperatures, it's especially difficult to cool an egg in a hot 
biome without an air conditioner, when it gets too hot.

Incubation can be postponed by picking up the egg and placing it into a refrigerator or 
other container. The egg's health will not decrease while it is being stored.

0%-10% = Baby
10%-50% = Juvenile
50%-100% = Adolescent

How to Cure Swamp Fever Quickly:
Written by obi-shabnam

Don't you just hate it when you wake up on the beach and see a naked survivor 
cough in your face and run off ruining your life. Here i am going to show you a quick 
way of curing swamp fever.

-=What is Swamp Fever?=-
Swamp fever is a disease on ARK that is found in the swamp regions carried by diseased 
leeches. Which look a bit larger than normal leeches and have an orange tint to them. 
Swamp fever cannot be cured by killing yourself as it carries over to the next body 
however creating a new character will remove swamp fever.

Swamp fever comes with harsh debuffs which are the following:
* 20% reduction in Weight, Melee Damage, Health and Stamina.
* 20% increase in Movement Speed.
* 50% reduction in Food, Water, and Oxygen consumption.

You will notice Swamp fever in a survivor by the green cloud around their head aswell 
as the coughing.If you see a naked aproaching you with these sympton either run or kill 
them on sight with a bow or ranged weapon and stay away from their dead corpse as you 
will still be able to catch it from them.

Swamp fever can also be carried by tamed dodos so keep clear.

-=How to Prevent Swamp Fever=-
There are several ways to prevent and cure swamp fever which are the following:
* Putting lots of points into fortitude will increase your chance of not getting 
  swamp fever.
* Wearing a gas mask will stop survivors from giving you swamp fever.
* Deleting your character and creating a new one will get rid of it but at the cost 
  of you losing your levels and tribe that you are in.

-=Lesser Antidote=-
The main cure for swamp fever is the lesser antidote which you can unlock at lvl 18 
for 16 engram points. You will need 10 rare flowers, 10 rare mushroom, 3 leech blood/ 
wooly rhino horn and 1 narcotic which i will show you how to get quickly.

-=Leech Blood=-
Leech blood can be found by killing leeches in the swamp and diseased leeches will give 
more leech blood. I would recomend building a raft with spike walls around to protect 
you from any dinos awell as prevents leeches from getting near you while you shoot with 
a ranged weapon.

-=Rare Mushrooms=-
Rare mushroom can be found in the swamp alongside all the other ingredients needed. 
All you need to do is use a pickaxe on the swamp trees.

-=Rare Flowers=-
Rare flowers are found in Beaver dams but most importantly these types of bushes 
that can be found in the swamp and many other areas around the island.

Narcotics can easily be made while getting rare flowers due to the plants also giving 
narcoberries and you can gather some meat from any dino.

How to Get to Herbivore Island Easily:
Written by Destroyer.

This is the simplest way to get to the titular island. When you get to Level 16, 
there’s a raft engram. Learn it, and get the materials. Then, craft it, and place it 
on water. In concept, this is simple, it’s a boat, but there are difficulties.

There’s a jumbo size dumb fish named Leedsichthys, or Whale, despite the two creatures 
not even related on the evolutionary tree at all. The big ???? targets anything that 
has to do with a raft crossing the waters, which also includes motorboats. It can be 
warded off using Giant Bee Honey, so it’s recommended to get Bees and Ghillie to survive 
the trip.

-=Sea Mounts=-
This is also an efficient way of getting to the island. Grab a sea mount, preferably 
a Megalodon or Mosasaurus, and tame it. Make sure to craft the saddle, too. Bring a 
few Dolphins with you, as an escort. This way is generally safe if you have a powerful 
ocean mount, but if you’ve got a Ptera or Pelagornis, then you can skip this.

-=Touch the Sky=-
This step can be done around level 38 or something, well, generally, once you get a 
Pteranodon saddle and a Pteranodon. Simply fly over there. This is better achieved by 
using the Pelagornis, which is capable of landing on the water to regain stamina.

An Argy is even better because you can carry a variety of creatures with you, including 
small ones in its beak, thus allowing you to properly settle down and build a base, in 
relative calmness.

-=Settling Guide=-
Now, you’ve got to the most peaceful island, with no predators at all, and you’ve already 
crafted a base there. Now, what do you do.

The first step is to settle on Carnivore Island all the way in the north and battle everything.

Just kidding. The first step is to amass a legion of Ankylosauruses, something very easy 
because they spawn here. The second is to mine a lot of metal, which also spawns here. A 
pro tip is that metal structures are awesome, yet impractical. Not a lot of creatures can 
damage the stone. Yes, that includes Ankys and Doedicurus, which is pathetic, because 
they’re the ones that mine rocks.

Passive Taming Tips:
Written by Siruss

In this guide I will teach you how to passive tame a creature!

-=Step 1. Find the creature.
Step 1 to passive tame a creature is to find the creature (dummy)
-=Step 2. Do the sneaky move
Do a sneaky move behind the creature. Don’t ask for consent, you don’t need 
it in this world.

-=Step 3. Run away
Just like a woman, once it’s fed you are useless. You wait for it to be hungry 
again before it will allow you near it.
-=Step 4. Done
If you did the other steps right, you have passive tamed the creature.

List of Console Command for Maximum Survivor:
Written by pitris391

Goal is to get to level 190 which is the Max level.
Making this guide because I struggled to unlock this achievement. I had to 
search around for videos, guides and wiki’s to help me out. So I’m just going 
to put all those in one place here. Also, I used console commands because it 
was easier and faster.
-=The List of To-Do’s=- 
* Beat Alpha Overseer that’s 15 levels more
* Beat Alpha Rockwell that’s 15 levels more 
* Beat Master Controller that’s 15 levels more
* Beat Gen2 Rockwell that’s 15 levels more
* Level a Chibi-Dino 5 times that gives 5 levels more
* Find all explorer notes that’s 10 levels more
* 100 Runes give 5 levels
* 200 Runes give another 5 levels
First off, the base cap of the levels is 105. So punch that Tab on your keyboard 
and type "addexperience 9999999999 0 0" without quotes and press enter. That will
give your character experience to level up. Then open your inventory by pressing 
i on keyboard and use those points so you level to 105 easily.
After that you want to find all the explorer notes which can be done with the 
command "giveallexplorernotes" but be careful as it probably will crash or freeze
your game. I noticed that it wont give the extra levels if it crashes. For me the
game crashed various of times but I kept trying until I got lucky and it didn’t 
crash. By doing that it will also give you the 100 and 200 rune levels. 

Make sure you then use the command "addexperience 9999999999 0 0" and use the 
points by opening your inventory. Bringing you to level 125.
Next you want to get a Chibi-Dino and you want to level it up. With the command 
"Cheat gfi ChibiDino_PartyRex 1 0 0" you will get a Chibi-Dino you then want to 
go in your inventory and equip it. Once equipped we are going to need to give it
experience with the command "Cheat AddChibiExp 9999999999". 

Do that 5 times so it reaches level 6 which is the Max level. Make sure you give 
yourself experience (with command "addexperience 9999999999 0 0") and use the 
points so you level up. With that you should be level 130.
Next, we are going to Ascend 4 times to get the last level ups. After each ascend 
you need to give yourself experience with the command "addexperience 9999999999 0 0" 
and then apply the points before ascending again.
-=So, the ascend commands are the following=-
cheat playercommand Ascend3

cheat playercommand AbAscend3
cheat playercommand Genascend3
cheat playercommand Gen2Ascend3
With all that done you should be at a whooping Max level of 190 as each ascension 
give 15 levels more.
Hopefully, this was clear and helped you get that Max Level.

Early Game Tips:
* Learn to know which dinos are dangerous and which are not.
* Some people like to play it safe (stay at initial spot until lvl 50 – level your 
  run speed first) – there are many different play styles possible. I only did put 
  10 points into speed – none into crafting, food, water (playing on “the island”). 
  My idea was: kill stuff, that likes to kill you (currently 500 HP, 300% melee). 
  Just recently killed my first alpha raptor solo with melee weapons.
* After getting some basic tools and a first shelter, start taming. recommended 
  first tames: Dilophosaur (get a few) – maybe a Parasaur / Iguanadon / Triceratops 
  as your first rideable mount.
* Get a first flyer – usually a Pteranodon – can easily be tamed once you have a bola.
* Get some tames to harvest resources quickly: Stegosaurus is good for wood/thatch, 
  Doedicurus for stone, Ankylosaurus for metal.
* Maybe get an Argy – after that you have the “swiss army knife” in Ark – good aerial 
  transport, with good stats a respectable fighter, that can take down any alpha.
* Finally explore the oceans / caves in Ark and kill the bosses.
