    Community Crunch 117 & Sponsored Mod Program Spotlight!

     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!

    Sponsored Mod Program Spotlight!

    It’s another exciting month in the mod program as we look to introduce you to two new and exciting mods we are sure you will like!  Over the past few months we’ve introduced new mods that revamp gameplay but this month we’ll be adding a content mod and a new map.

    Maps have a way of rejuvenating your passion for a game and everyone loves additional content.  Especially content that adds new functions to existing mechanics you’ve used since you first started surviving.  Without further ado, here are the new mods entering the program!

    This map is filled with vast open plains, open for you to build to your heart's desire.  The map has a slight fantasy feel but relies heavily on natural landscapes, dense forests, and amazing mountains.  This will be one to keep an eye on for sure!

    Saddle Emporium
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1208371689

    large.1208371689_preview_SaddleRaptorRelease1b.jpg

    Saddles are, arguably, one of the most used and needed items in ARK.  Something that you will see thousands of times in your gameplay.  Not only do these saddles give your creatures a visible flair, some of them offer benefits such as weight reduction.  Drop by the workshop page to see what dinos are coming next!

    TLC Phase 1/v277 Patch!

    Humble Bundle Sale!

    For those who've yet to experience the joys of ARK, nows your chance to get in as we have a 60% discount available on the Humble Store for Steam for only a few more hours!

    ARK: Survival Evolved

    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!

    Is this new mod going to be added to the whole game like The Center and Ragnarok? (on consoles too?)

    And please, is there an Ark evolution event this weekend? Many servers were down last weekend like mine, many people weren't able to enjoy this event, so it'd be nice if there could be one this weekend.

    No, it is just like all the other Mods currently in the Sponsored Mod program. It is not being integrated in to the base game.

    could you put more decorative dino items in the game, like heads and pelts? It would be cool if you could have like argi heads or thyla/ dire bear pelts. Or maybe skulls on the wall from like a megalodon(teeth). It would be coolif wehad just more decorative items from dinos to put in our bases. Maybe you could make like a pelt stripper tool or a stuff bench. i would like it

    I have really cool idea for raptors in tlc. I think they should be able to open doors, they should open enemy tchatch, wooden and glass doors with full hp, stone that is under half hp, metal under 1k hp( let's be honest, if they would open tek ones it would be to op), and every friendly door (that wouldn't be gamechanging, but that surelly would be cool emo) and with all that let them go throught the doors ( don't make them smaller).

    I feel like the scout and explorer saddles for the raptor should be switched around as scouts should be fast, were as the explorer can take time and resources.

    Good idea but what the raptors really need to have is the ability to jump and stay on the prey for a while (using stamina). It's like the basic thing about raptors, they are famous for their claws and actually not using it in the game... Could also work for sabertooth.
