Hello, I am new to these forums as I just recently created an account to post one of my suggestions for something that could be implemented into the game for an easier way of taming things, especially if you do not have much time to do so due to the amount of time you have on the game, or if the servers are going down for maintenance for new patches.
Basically, what I believe should be added into ARK whether it is soon or sometime in the future of ARK updates, there should be an easier way to bring up herbivore dinosaur's taming progression. And the reasoning for that is because the carnivorous dinosaurs have prime meat which helps with their taming and increases it much more rapidly than the regular raw meat given to them. Then you have the herbivores that have no special way of obtaining a hasty taming speed. Some take hours to tame, and then you have to worry about the servers going down for maintence and all the hard work and time you put into it is basically wasted. So what I am proposing here is that if you give a herbivore berries, you are allowed to force feed them berries and it begins to increase their taming bar quicker than it would if it ate normally. Though in doing this, the taming effectiveness is brought down drastically given that you're force feeding the dinosaur food to tame it quicker. And depending on the level of the dinosaur, of course the amount of berries needed would increase severely in order to force feed the dinosaur berries to tame it quicker.
Once again this is just an idea/opinion I had. I think it would help a lot of people who complain about the taming speed of dinosaurs out a lot and this would only be for herbivores, not carnivores. Or even a special 'berry' you can give them to increase their taming speed would be highly appreciated. I know you can starve the dinosaurs and then just feed them everything in one go, but that requires a large amount of narco-berries or narcotics to drain their food quickly, and even then narco-berries do not knock down the hunger by a significant amount which is understandable because they are only berries. But tell me what you think about this idea and if any improvements can be done to make it more balanced and fair for everyone, thank you!
