    NOTE: This list is as complete as possible as of 9/28/2017. However, it appears that an unknown dossier/note may keep you from completing the list. More to come as information becomes available.

    Please note: I continue to try to keep this updated, but read through the comments below. I have finished the game; new dossiers are necessary for the achievement.

    As of v757.1, there's an extra step. You must now go to the Pause menu, then press (simultaneously) cn_X + cn_Y + cn_LB + cn_RB. I believe the box will then stay open as long as you're on. If not... repeat step one. I tested it on an alt, and got the box to work. (I didn't retype all 200 codes, though.)

    NOTE: I have heard from some people that this has popped after finishing just the dinosaurs, so my advice right now is to complete the creature dossiers first before the notes. You may save yourself quite a bit of time. In addition, there are further dossiers, but these don't seem to be necessary. As such, I have *NOT* included them on this list.

    Keeping up with the changes is increasingly more of a PITA. Here's hoping you can knock it out ASAP!

    Due credit to http://www.feariun.com/the-island.html

    I wanted to make a comprehensive, one-stop shopping list for all of the tips that everyone has made, rather than having to hunt and peck (and waste time) putting it all together, while also making an attempt to make it a bit more coherent for those people not used to how this works.

    IF YOU CAN STREAM TO A WINDOWS 10 PC, YOU CAN COPY/PASTE THESE CODES! This will save you HOURS.


    (Some of this setup information may change due to tweaks in the UI.)

    First, go into Options and uncheck Motion Blur and Detail Graphics. These will **SERIOUSLY** speed up your spawning times.

    You also need to make sure that "Admin Logging" is checked when you set up the game (in the Host screen, under General, scroll down towards the bottom).

    The main point I want to make, since it seems to be mentioned nowhere else, is that many of the coordinates will spawn you into the ground. You have to get out to move around. Several people have mentioned the code, but you have to switch back in order to actually pick up the items. That isn't readily available, and I had to search for it.

    So here's a list of codes that should help you when you're searching for the 170 items, as well as helpful cheats. Make sure you actually click on ADMIN COMMAND before resuming. That might be obvious, or not.

    Yes, it's 190. They added more. That's why the PC method is a lot easier.


    Cheats:
    When you get stuck - ghost
    When you are unstuck (fly a bit higher) - walk
    So you don't get eaten - infinitestats
    Same - god
    When it's dark, it's better to make the sun come up - settimeofday 08:00:00
    When you're in a cave, it's dark! - Head Lamp - giveitemnum 305 1 0 0 0 false

    If you need to ghost, you may have to make sure that you're clear (ie. you can walk) before you can change coordinates.

    I had problems with a few that blended in. If you are too, you can spawn a GPS:
    cheat giveitemnum 72 1 0 0
    Then go to this page and look up the item's GPS coordinates: http://ark.gamepedia.com/Explorer_Notes

    Some of these will be underwater, but you're not staying long. Grab them, and move on. No need for SCUBA.

    Again, I'm making this as one post to consolidate all the wonderful advice posted here. I've found it hard to cobble all the information together, so no disrespect to anyone else. Thanks to everyone who continue to post updates and corrections. toast

    Here's the full list, including all of the new ones.
    I cannot take credit for this list; that goes to http://www.feariun.com/the-island.html

    Boss Dossiers - You need to kill them in their habitat... this is different than the similar achievements. Watch for their minions to swarm you, and make sure that the boss moves around a little so the game recognizes that they've fully spawned. Then...

    Immediately kill a dino - kill

    You should get the dossier automatically.

    Broodmother
    Arena - cheat setplayerpos -261600 238400 -70900
    Spawn - summon spiderL_character_bp_c

    Dragon
    Arena - cheat setplayerpos 233000 35000 -100300
    Spawn - summon dragon_character_bp_boss_c

    Megapithecus
    Arena - cheat setplayerpos -195200 -196800 -119300
    Spawn - summon gorilla_character_bp_c

    Note: There is a fourth locked boss dossier. I believe it is for the Scorched Earth add-on. As far as I know, this is not necessary for this achievement.


    And now the explorer notes. As I noted at the top, some people are reporting that these aren't necessary. However, this may change (again), so if you haven't gotten it to this point, the notes are below.

    I used the "cheat fly" command and followed the sequence below, they are close to each other. When the local is "Cave" I went to the position and I used the "cheat ghost" command to pass through the ground/mountain.
    Beside that use the other commands from Rashaka1 solution.

    So... This is an extremely long and boring achievement...

    You must collect all 100+ of the notes which includes all dino dossiers. Here is a website that lists them all by GPS location

    http://ark.gamepedia.com/Explorer_Notes

    Below I will list some useful commands for accomplishing this. I suggest starting out in the water and going around to all the underwater caves. This will have to circling the full map. Afterwards I suggest heading to the sky to get all of the rest of them since it will take two different types of dinos to finish it.

    All commands are entered in the command line on the pause screen in single player without quotes.

    Make Daylight - "settimeofday 07:00:00" // useful for outdoor dossier.
    GPS - "giveitemnum 72 1 0 0 0 false"
    Head Lamp - "giveitemnum 305 1 0 0 0 false"
    Pike - "giveitemnum 140 9 0 0 false"
    Infinite Stats - "infinitestats"

    Starting in the water caves use this command

    Water Dino - "summon plesiosaur_character_bp_c"

    Unpause and look at the plesiosaur and then pause again.

    Tame dino - "forcetame"

    Now get on the plesiosaur and use these commands

    Max level - "addexperience 99999999 0 0"
    Infinite Stats - "infinitestats" //you must type this while riding the dino.

    This will give you a water dino with unlimited stamina for sprinting "press in left thumbstick." While riding the dino press X to enter it's inventory and spend all of it's level points on movement speed.

    Equip your GPS in a hotkey location. *NOTE* You can not use the GPS while riding the plesiosaur.

    You can however use it under water so long as you aren't riding the plesiosaur.

    After you have collected all the dossier that are in underwater caves you can now move on to the land section. Go to solid ground somewhere.

    Flying Dino - "summon ptero_character_bp_c"

    Unpause and look at the dino.

    Tame Dino - "forcetame" /* Ptero can be hard to tame. They like to fly away. If it flies away just summon another one to tame it instead. Usually you can get them to land on the ground and just stand there. */

    Now just get on your dino and repeat the steps that you did for the plesiosaur for leveling up and giving infinite stats.

    Unlike the Plesiosaur, you can use the GPS while riding the Ptero. If you are in 3rd person mode just press the RB to go first person while riding and you can see your GPS then if it's pulled out.

    If I have missed anything feel free to post here and let me know what didn't work and I'll check to make sure I didn't mess up any of the commands. Hope this helps out with this lame achievement.

    Theres a really useful link that I used, it gives you the cheat code to teleport to each location:
    http://www.feariun.com/the-island.html

    It still takes a while to type each in but easier than searching from point to point.

    I'm only halfway through the list so far but all have been spot on.

    With the new v751 patch this achievement is now able to be earned by getting all the 100+ Helena, Rockwell, Mei Yin and Nerva survivor notes.

    If you want to get them without cheating
    Use This Link: http://ark.gamepedia.com/Explorer_Notes/Locations

    If you want get them with cheat codes
    Use This Link: http://www.feariun.com/the-island.html


    PS: Using Cheat Codes Is Faster!

    PSS: Some codes don't work because they look like something ark has blocked is chat. So change normally 1 number in the part that looks bad and it should work. Only 3 of them have that issue.

    Example #1: Nerva Note #9: setplayerpos -241600 65600 -26800. 60065 looks like, well you know. So change the -241600 to -241602
