Tribal Alliance To do this, the Owner or Admins of a tribe must form an alliance by entering a name and clicking the “Form new alliance ” button in the Tribe Manager, then if they formed or are an admin of an alliance, they must go up to another Tribe’s Owner or Admins.
Alliances add players and creatures to the whitelist for AI, as if they were in the same tribe. Allied dinos cannot hurt each other with their attacks, so you can fight together without killing each other. Auto turrets will not shoot them.
PSA- Allied Tribes can see your tribe chat.
Tribe size is set to 25 players each with a server limit of 100. Alliances are allowed.
How to Build and Strengthen Alliances Be supportive. Start by offering your support to others when you can see that they need it. Nurture your allies. One good deed, though, won’t be enough to form an alliance. Communicate effectively. Don’t ask for too much. Don’t take offence.
To become a tribe member you need to prove your connection to it. That means going back through history to find evidence of your heritage. Family tribal records are often the best way to do this. From birth certificates, marriage and death certificates, old school records…
You don’t “ join” a Tribe. You can be a Tribal Member, but you must be of Native lineage to do so. All Tribes have there own enrollment criteria. A few tribes invite tourists to buy honorary tribe membership.
You can find it in your tribe settings. Then have the founder or admin of the new tribe invite the owner of the old tribe. When accepting the tribe invitation, select the ” Merge Tribe ” option.
Channels. Ark has 3 chat “channels”: Global (Enter key or L1 + Touchpad) Tribe (Backslash or L1 + Options)
If you hold left trigger it will bring the map closer to your screen, making it a little bigger.
Backslash (by default) toggles auto- hide chat. If you turn off the “auto chat box” option, then it just straight turns the chat on/off. So, turn off “auto chat box” and then hit backspace.
Just hit L1+touchpad and then the chat appears. Use text as usual on the PS4, I either use the D-Pad to type or an USB keyboard.
