Tribe Settings For Dino Taming
The default tribe settings for ARK are not suitable for Zoology. Tribes need to allow players to have Personal Taming for Zoology to work. If this is not set then the players can not receive the free gift engrams they need to learn about the animals of the ark.
In addition to this the original player that tames an animal can receive benefits above those of other players the animal may associate with, but only if this is set correctly.
