    Community Contests!

    NVidia Ansel Photography Contest

    large.Ansel.jpg.683f020687f3fe873c17912d

    Super Resolution Version: http://images.nvidia.com/ansel/SuperResolution/ARK-SuperResolution1/ARK__Survival_Evolved_HighRes_2016_09_01_-_14_38_36_55.html

    ARK: Survival Evolved and the Scorched Earth Expansion Pack now include support for NVIDIA Ansel -- a revolutionary new way to capture in-game shots.  Compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share the screenshots in 360 via a smartphone, PC or VR headset. 

    Learn more about these features from the NVIDIA blog.

    Now let’s get to the contest!

    There were 3 potential categories for survivors to enter their shots into and they were the following:

    Four Categories

    *NEW* Freestyle: These can be images or videos taken using NVIDIA's new Freestyle filters! If videos are submitted, they must have a maximum duration of one minute. For the time being, the current prize is double our normal amount, so winners will receive 200$ and runner-ups will receive 100$.

    Super Resolution: These should be taken at 8x Super Resolution. Players can optionally use Depth of Field effects accessible in Spectator mode by pressing the [Delete] key.

    Panoramic 360 Stereoscopic 3D: These should be taken at 4x Super Resolution, in 360 Stereoscopic 3D mode. We will crop them to 2D for web display, while also providing the 3D version for viewing within VR display.

    Freeform: Any settings, whacky and creative use of Ansel filters are encouraged. Adding humorous titles/captions in Photoshop is also acceptable for this category!

    And now without further ado, here are your entries!

    Why are we getting no game updates with these community crunches? When the raptor is transfer day? I'm so sick of guessing...please, wildcard, just talk to us.

    Are the people who played early access ever going to obtain the bionic dinosaur skins? I heard somewhere that we were going to get them. Are we?

    Will there be a version of ragnarok that has an abberant biome? I want to be able to wingsuit through the sky, then launch flaming arrows at things.

    Maybe this community crunch is so empty because they have something big in the works and might possibly be featured in next weeks crunch?

    I hope. I just can't wait till we get S+ on vanilla!

    Quick question - I bought ARK for my Xbox one originally. If I buy the season pass now as a humble bundle, will it work with "Play anywhere" on windows 10? It says the humble bundle is via Steam.
