    Structures Plus (S+) & Kibble Rework Beta!

    large.image-(1).jpg

    The Structures Plus and Kibble Rework beta is still available and we're looking for additional feedback as we get closer to release of these features. We will have another update to the beta branch soon, addressing some of the feedback and suggestions from our beta participants. Thank you again to everyone that has participated thus far and provided us with their feedback. Please check out the post below for all of the information on how you can get involved in play testing this beta.

    Upcoming Server maintenance!

    Beginning at 2am CET on January 30th (8PM EST January 29th) we will be taking down some of our EU servers for maintenance. We will be performing successive hardware upgrades, therefore the affected servers will be shut down in waves across the maintenance period. A list of affected servers can be found in our linked thread below.

    Modding Community Updates!

    It's time for another ARK Devkit Tutorial! ?

    We're finally getting down to something cool looking. We're doing a little bit of polish in this video because it has a bit of impact on how we handle the spawn/despawn controls of the mod. So there are circumstances where it might be good to take a break from the rough work and put a little bit of time into some refinement. It's good when you think it will have an impact on the overall design or if you just need a little catharsis.
     

    Fan Feature of the Week!

    At least they're patching some of the holes and glitches used to mesh but it isn't enough. Gotta disable the cheaters ability to cheat until all the holes are fixed. Otherwise no amount of upgrades, like s+, or Dino fixes make a difference. Kind of hard to enjoy any improvements when one person can get under your base, demolish all of it and kill everything with ease. As for console being 2 patches behind PC? Blame Sony and Microsoft. All software companies have to meet specific guidelines and the software has to be inspected prior to authorizing for their systems. It takes time. It all has to be approved by Sony and Microsoft before it is distributed.

    I play Official PVE on xbox one x and was wondering if anyone else regularly experiences these issues:

    -- every ~40 minutes on our scorch server the game crashes, also happens less frequently on extinction. Happens on all scorch servers. SInce I got a one x I no longer experience this but all of my tribemates still do

    -- when logging in to my scorched earth, aberration, or ragnarok servers, the game stops loading in. It is the same as what happens when the router turns off, where I cannot interact with anything but can move around. Never happens on my Island or Extinction servers, even though they have much larger bases with hundreds more dinos. This has been an issue since the Extinction cronicles update of september

    You have to press C and angle your view to where the crosshair would be looking at the berry patch as if the crosshair were present

    On Xbox, when they are wondering they do not harvest Berry's or fiber they just kinda run and never stop to harvest.

    h'raay, tek saddles will b fixed... so what about all the other broken tek.  Afrer > a year of solo play, I finally defeat a boss on Official, and I'm sittin on tek leggings (pun intended) that won't charge or activate.  I think at this point I would prefer a game-breaker to a game "What's the point?"-er....    I take that back, don't be Hello Games...

    Hmmm, I don't see the Cryopod update for baby imprinting and mating timers.  Seems like a simple fix, wonder why we aren't getting that one yet?  It's the only one I was looking forward to!

    Why are we not getting the 291.100 patches fixes? Console player pay more for this raptoring game and we get 2 week old patches late and then you guys can't give a raptoring date as to when we will get our already late patches. We will probably get them by the time PC gets a new patch which will make console 4 weeks behind. raptoring amazing WC!

    Can't wait! 

    I think that a 24 hour midweek event could be good.  A lot of people don't really play midweek as if feels like 'half exp'. Maybe this would get people on in the week more...

    Will NA servers be getting an upgrade as well?  I'm on an Xbox small tribes server and it has been running like complete garbage.  There are times that it's locked up longer than it's not and constantly dropping players.

    Xbox recently made the compatibility with mouse and keyboard possible and I'm hoping Ark for Xbox will soon give xbox players the option to use the mouse and keyboard as well, I have tried to plug in and use them but there are no options or any available information for mouse and keyboard usage for Ark on xbox. I am hoping that ark will soon allow this feature thanks.

    We’re 2 updates behind PC. Both patches are big so we’ll need one before the other. I’d imagine they will submit the other patch for certification soon after.
