You have to be careful because, in order to be safe, you need a base. Basic components what you neet to build the base are floors, windows, and doors. This component you can get them during the progress in the game, as you level up. It’s easy to find in the world because these are the basic stuff. The basic thing what you need as well is fire and weapons. There is also some other activities that you are capable of doing (Taming and Feeding Dinosaurs) but only with a bigger amount of resources.

ARK: Survival Evolved Preview Gameplay
How strong will be the building depends on what kind of resources you have. Destroy the pillars and foundations and you get good integrity. I suggest building your buildings from metal because the only way they can get damage is by Titanosaur or by explosives. Which gives you a nice stability.
ARK: Survival Evolved also allows you to build your weapons by collecting technology and resources. For example, accessories for your weapons scopes and flashlights for your pistol/machine gun. The food is also important in ARK: Survival Evolved. What kind of food you eat depends on how fast your health will regenerate. If you craft your own food the health will regenerate faster.
ARK: Survival Evolved has an arsenal of around 60 species of dinosaurs. Dinosaurs can be fed with grain food and you can subdue each and every species. Once you own a dinosaur, you can find out what is actually his ability. Some of them they fly, run fast, swim fast underwater, and the statistics of that dinosaur are available as well such as speed, health, and damage.
It’s a common problem for players that ride (fly) a dinosaur on top, they lose control and can’t shoot with their weapons. That’s why I recommend you to ride the big dinosaurs and ride them on the side which gives you full body and weapon control.
The flying dinosaurs are always on your side no matter what. Give them bad or good commands and they will do it. Not to mention that they can carry all the items that you need.
The official release date for ARK: Survival Evolved is December 6th.
