How to get Cryopods in ARK Survival Ascended

How to yeet a dino!

Cryopods used to be a very useful game element in ARK Survival Evolved and got me wondering if I could use them in ARK Survival Ascended as well. This guide will show you where you can find Cryopods in ARK Survival Ascended, how much has changed, and how to interact with them.

Can I get Cryopods in ARK Survival Ascended?

Currently, you cannot get Cryopods in ARK Survival Ascended. I looked everywhere across the Island map, but I couldn't find them anywhere. This leads me to believe the developers are yet to implement them in the game with other missing features, like the beehives.

Since the beehives are a spawnable object in the game using the ARK command console, I tried a similar approach to no avail. (After using the GFID Emptycryo command, I get a 'Not allowed to spawn in this map' message.)

Cryopods used to be the primary means of transportation of the tamed dinosaurs in ARK Survival Evolved, and this is one of the features I miss the most in this iteration of the game. However, I am sure the developers have an intention to work it into the game as soon as possible, with the console command's existence being the proof.

For those willing to experiment, there is a Cryopod mod found on Curseforge, which enables you to have cryopods in the game. The mod's current version doesn't work too well, but the later version is likely to remedy any stability issues.
