      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

      Official PC: Hard Turret Limit begins on 18th of February at 1PM ET   02/16/18

      On the 18th of February, at 1PM ET we will be enabling the hard turret limit on all PC Official Servers. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius. This will work on autoturrets, heavy turrets, tek turrets, plus plant turrets and is no longer map specific. The hard limit calculation is done on start-up, so if your turrets are ever over the limit, they will be randomly shut-off until you're under the limit. In order to restore shut off turrets, you must pick up any which exceed the number, as well as shut-off turrets and replace them in order for them to work.

    Community Crunch 116: Dino TLC, Upcoming Patch Notes, Steam Humble Sale & More

     Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

    The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community!

    Dino TLC Phase 2 Preview!

    In our previous Dino TLC updates, we showed you our progress on Phase 1 of the Dino DLC pass, which includes the: Direbear, Procoptodon, Gigantopithecus, Direwolf, and Tyrannosaurus Rex. We are targeting the release of Phase 1 to take place during the week of February the 18th on PC. The plan is for the Dino TLC pass is to roll out these changes in multiple phases. Throughout the next few months, some creatures will receive visual changes, as well as functional/gameplay changes.

    Today, we'd like to share some screenshots and provide some insight into what we're planning for Phase 2 of the TLC pass. We've been reading all your feedback and suggestions regarding the creatures; our artists and gameplay team have found it to be beneficial in the decision-making process. Something to keep in mind is that not all creatures will receive a visual update, but we will cover ones we feel (with your feedback) need it. Sometimes there may be function gameplay changes which weaken certain aspects of creatures; however, if we take anything away, we always plan to add to it through another dimension.

    Please remember that these are still works-in-progress and are therefore subject to change before final release, which includes both visual redesigns, as well as gameplay changes. 

    The Argentavis!

    large.Argentavis.jpg.efd7f315f11a0b5397c

    The Argentavis has long since been a favourite flyer to many. With its high health, weight, and stamina it's an essential air mount that now will be getting a bit more love. The Dino TLC will grant the Argent a new saddle that will receive reduced weight capabilities on obsidian and various other materials, and the ability to craft smithy items within the saddle. 

    The Argent will now be able to carry two additional passengers, one with its claws and one in its beak. The Argent will be carrying heavier than current creatures in its talons, while its beak will be able to support the weight of smaller creatures.

    Lastly, upon consuming a corpse the Argent will receive rapid health regeneration, making this vulture a formidable aerial tank!

    The Spinosaur!

    large.Spino.jpg.5a2ace04fde09df0928a58ae

    The quadruped stance of the Spinosaur has been a hotly debated since it first joined and ever since. Those for the stance enjoyed its dog-like run while those against felt like it was not true to the real-world version of the dino. With the TLC pass, the Spinosaur will now be able to operate in both a bipedal and a quadruped stance. When on two legs the Spino will move slower but be able to bite and use its claws to do increased damage, while on four legs it will be able to move faster.

    Due to its affinity to water, the Spino will receive a buff which applies a bonus to movement speed, turning radius, attack damage, and health regen when fighting in water, and will last for some time after exiting the water. It will also prefer prime fish for taming (over prime meat) and have an increased chance of gathering prime fish meat.

    But before we can do all of that in Phase 2, we have to get through this upcoming patch first! 

    TLC Phase 1/v277 Tentative Patch Notes: PC ETA Week of February 18th!

    Please keep in mind that these notes are tentative, some parts of it may change before release (such as the values for creature-balance), as well as more general fixes included for Patch Day.

    WOw the balance and gameplay changes are really lookin to be big improvements. @Jen though, it’s not only red gems that have collision errors in aberration. Pretty much all harvestables can be blocked from being harvested by decorative rocks that can’t be removed, as well as other objects like mushrooms that must be temoved before harvesting the resource.

    Everything looks great so far :)

    "Server option to disable fog"  must be the best thing coming up haha!

    Any plans for updated models for the bosses? Including dodorex and dodowyvern?

    I cant remember the last time i was excited for an update, but this one looks good :)

    hopefully it's the start of a trend and wildcard will get back on track.

    i only have 2 issues, 1 minor issue...i much prefer the old argent beak to the new one, i could care less if it's more historically accurate or not ;) and the other issue is whoa hold your horses with those massive HP nerfs! i mean i could sorta get it with the land dinos cause of the turret nerf and all (still seems a bit too much) but the water dinos? what? why!?!

    Holy Quiznak, that new Argent model is amazing. Although i hope that now you realize that you have to make all the other fliers this awesome. i mean c'mon, weight reduction, smithy saddle, double dino carrying, corpse healing, what's not to love?

    ...still wish the flyer nerf was a server option so us console players can have a choice...;)

    I'm definitely looking forward to using the Argie and Spino once they get their facelifts!

    I hope y'all are considering giving some of the older mammals some love, especially the mammoth and phiomia, but otherwise you guys are really blowing away expectations with this TLC pass!

    - Silencer now hides the name of the player who has killed you from the kill message and tribe log

    YES! this is the kind of game refining that makes the difference between an early access game and an officially released game, both the bug fixes and tlc changes. 

    I hope ammunition costs for all of the non-sniper firearms gets lowered, assault rifles, pistols, and shotguns all seem too expensive to use when quality pikes/swords or crossbows work just as well for far less cost in most cases.

    Holy hell. I've been lurking for a long time now, but that... that's beautiful. I cannot wait to see the new models in action, the before and after beautifully showcases how the skills of the modeling team has, heh, evolved since the game first released into early access. I think all your models from back then could use a touch up, since frankly they just do not compare to what you are showing us now.

    one other thing the spino needs is the sail is no longer the right shape its more of a M shape now.   The mosa should have a fluked tail and immunity to Cnidaria.     the oviraptor needs feathers and a automatic egg collecting ability  like the egg collector mod.   the palm of the rex's hands should be facing each other and it could use a stomp atk for when stuff gets  close behind and under you.       megalodon needs well needs a full redue.  Cnidaria should be on wonder like a mine in the current and not hone in on you like a heat seeking missile.     other than that so far the fixes look good and thank you for being able to finally turn fog off its so unrealistic to see fog underwater lol. oh one more thing for about a year now creatures on rafts seem to cause movement errors for the raft making it jerk back and to the left unless the creatures are on the right or left edge of the raft is this just me or ...?

    I feel like the devs missed a real opportunity by not awarding @captainfatdog the ARKitect prize. He offers real innovation to the difficult ARK building system that is available to regular players. Offering new techniques to exceed the limits of vanilla ARKitecture is much more prize worthy, in my opinion, than continuing the tradition here of rewarding massive cheat builds.

    Can you guys make it so you can whip dinos up inclines, would be an amazing quality of life fix, its just so annoying just to get them over a small lip.

    Agreed, that he was not recognized is a shame. Creative and new and extremely difficult build and not even a mention.

    Some pretty exciting stuff coming in v277. Looking forward to seeing all the dinos changes in action, and some of the game changes are interesting too!

    Server option to remove fog, thank the heavens! xD

    Creative Mode building! Sounds interesting B|

    Nice entries guys and congrats to all the winners and those that go their content shared!

    Looking forward to the spino, my favourite dino.

    The argy getting some love is also very welcome.

    Increased bronto raise time is a shame and will make my bronto breeding for colour mutations more of a chore but makes sense that they should take longer to raise than they do now.

    I cant remember the last time i was excited for an update, but this one looks good :)

    hopefully it's the start of a trend and wildcard will get back on track.

    i only have 2 issues, 1 minor issue...i much prefer the old argent beak to the new one, i could care less if it's more historically accurate or not ;) and the other issue is whoa hold your horses with those massive HP nerfs! i mean i could sorta get it with the land dinos cause of the turret nerf and all (still seems a bit too much) but the water dinos? what? why!?!

    Underwater-based PvP, where applicable. Tuso's have a poopting-ton of health, and Dunkles damage reduction made them the best water-soakers. This change brings them more in line with the Mosa.
