    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!

    When you say fix for this person veiw....I hope you don't mean remove it?! Why would you?

    Also Ragnarok 63 had been terrible the play on since game pass. Could you please do something about the connecting players causing lag, the Blue ob and other DC issues? To guys are great, it's just that the joy is being sucked right out of the map for those reasons 😭

    Also Pretty please make it so bugs can breed? ESPECIALLY since Primal survival is not even mentioned anymore. The reasons to have was it wasn't realistic life cycle..... Who cares?! What is in ARK? I want baby spiders, mantis, and scorpions!!!

    Thanks

    Thank you WildCard for not giving up on your game and your community.

    As a console player I am really eager to see and feel the improvements, especially on split screen.

    Keep on guys ! Be proud of your craft.
