When you're trying to survive in the wilderness, you'll need a safe place to retreat to. In something like Minecraft you can simply dig a hole in the ground and hide in there if you so choose, but in ARK, you can make a proper home base.

You'll need to create the necessary engrams and level up, but once you're there it's time to settle down and make yourself somewhere you'd be happy to bring a date back to.

It all starts with some solid foundations - make sure you know how to get started in ARK: Survival Evolved before building a base with these tips!
