It involves different actions of caring during the maturation process. Only one player can imprint a newborn baby. If this player manages to care for it during the maturing phase, the creature will get stats bonuses and an additional bonus of up to 30% in each damage and resistance when this very player rides it.
Any imprinting done is permanent and will not decay if you neglect to imprint the creature afterwards. If the creature asks for something you don’t have or don’t want to feed, it is possible to cryopod it, then release it back out.
For breeding purposes, imprint does not affect offspring stats.
The Imprint Period Multiplier adjusts how often a creature wants imprinting. The standard 8 hour imprint period is multiplied by this value, so for example, if the Imprint Period Multiplier is 0.5, the formula would be 8 x 0.5 = 4 .
How do you increase the % for each imprint? M is the total maturation time and C is the time between cuddles. The easiest way to do it without mods is to set your cuddle interval to the opposite of your maturation multiplier. With a maturation speed of 100 you’d want to set it to 1/100, or 0.01.
Imprinting is a way to improve the stat-values of a bred creature. It involves different actions of caring during the maturation process. Only one player can imprint a newborn baby.
Filial imprinting is a process, readily observed in precocial birds, whereby a social attachment is established between a young animal and an object that is typically (although not necessarily) a parent.
A new option appears in left menu: Settings > Expert Settings. Set “EnableCryosicknessPVE=False” in the GameUserSettings. ini file and it disables Cryo Sickness.
Baby dinos in ark need to be fed by hand until they reach 10% growth. They have low food capacity and starve extremely quickly as you have noticed. You need to put the food into their inventory directly for them to eat. Make sure you have food available and don’t incubate eggs if you have anything else to do.
Two players can mate and have an ai offspring. It’s capable of defending and stuff. But if you abandon the ai human it has a chance of finding other abandon ai humans and start forming a tribe.
Yes. Cryo just pauses it, making no change in the timers. Also cryo is able to change what the baby needs for imprint, like can turn kibble into cuddle.
Often, genomic imprinting results in a gene being expressed only in the chromosome inherited from one or the other parent. While this is a normal process, when combined with genomic mutations, disease can result.
Imprints don’t change the stat that’s passed on to offspring but will change the stat you see in an imprinted (more than 0% imprint) dino. So you can have some babies, claim them and see the stats that would be passed on, as they would have 0% imprint.
Go to wiki: http://ark.gamepedia.com/Imprinting One imprint is 1,54% for giga. when you want to imprint 100% you need about 65 imprints. 4h per hour is about 10 days and 19 hours. to raise a giga you have 13d and 18h.
When a baby asks for care and you give it (could be taking it for a walk, hugging it, or feeding it something special), you ‘imprint’ on the dino, which if you do perfectly, the dino will have 20% better stats (but just while you are riding it)
It wants to play/go for a walk or cuddle (basically some interaction with the player, you can ignore it if you don’t need the imprint bonus)
