My argie can not pick up wild dinos (tried everything from dodo, dilo to scorpion and rapters). Is there a setting that disables this or is something wrong? Couldn't find it mentioned is server info.

The PVE server is set to Official settings for that. You cannot pick up wild dinos. This way wild dinos cannot be dropped into other players bases. If there is enough people wanting that to change, it could be something that happens in the future.

Ah ok fair enough then. I'd be up for it to change but guess it depends on what people want.

This setting is tied together with picking up enemy players. So enabling picking up Dinos would also allow you to pick up enemy players on the PvE server. Which of course can cause quite the headache if the wrong type of people get on the server. 
However, if we receive enough members wanting to turn it on we will gladly do so. 
But as saintalexial said, members can then toss Dinos into your bases and such as well.

Yeah I understand the reasoning, just makes it hard to tame certain dinos without traversing the length of the map aha.

Not to hijack the thread but does that work for pvp as well? I only ask because I was able to pick up Dino’s with my pteranodon on the Rag server

It works on PvP because that's apart of how PvP is played. So yes. You will be able to pick dinos and players. Its just disabled for PvE because survivors can use this to have another players base destroyed or pick up other survivors in PvE to essentially get them killed. Which is not apart of PvE.

As a former Ark host I do understand the issues that this brings along. With the servers being open to all people to join, it would make it difficult to police any would be wrong doers. I know taming in the wild is what makes the game dangerous and fun at times. But, that also goes for the things these would be wrong doers would or could do. Build defenses in your base to target any wild dinos that may find there way in. With that being said I would like to see this turned on myself. Just my 2 cents.

I agree Brian. I was against it at first but as I have been wanting to take certain Dino’s I think it would be great to have the action turned on. I see where admins are coming from though. I would say turn it on until there is an issue with the A**hole who wants to drop Dino’s.

The main issue is exactly what you stated. However, I will make a poll for this option to be enabled. If this ever becomes a common issue in the future though, we will not hesitate to remove it again as it is easier to just have it off then to deal with trolls that want to abuse the system and cause havoc.

I agree 100%. I am just used to being able to pick up dinos. If we have issues then turn it off again. Theses are your servers.
