    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!

    So why don’t you add S+. Wildcards response “we care more about mobile that have a in game currency and cheats for the switch they have all updates from previous ones, pc has more updates and mods, and for console, pfff by a pc” well if it’s a big update you might as well add S+ and get that out of the way but NOOOOOOO you’ve got to worry more about other platforms and why don’t you give ps4, mobile, switch, and pc there own dino skin huh why not XBOX one.

    Neither of those work for me on Xbox.

     

    Also, entire inventory is wiped when traveling within map cluster (Nitrado). ARK data doesn’t work either. Proper settings verified that nothing changed.

     

    Major broken patch.

    (I replaced the water tap) and it works Ig the update messed them up they where working before.

    Update V782.14 just glitched hard. I spawned outside in battle some how? While watching myself fighting? I lost a lot of recent work due to this update. Any way to fix your mess up wildcard? 

    Server: NA-PVP-XboxOfficial-TheIsland530 

    Roll it back prior to update. At last spawn?

    Thank you so much for putting time and effort into focusing on console issues. Everything seems to be running great, but I am having issues with ramps of any kind and most small rocks that require a tool to be harvested. When walking up and over either objects the player gets stuck at the top and can not move. I've been lucky and had my TEK armor on and was able to use the super punch to launch me out of the glitch on rocks and most ramps. Unfortunately any ramp leading into a building with a doorway on the other hand was close application and start over situation.

    I'm not sure if I'm the only one having this issue or not but if it helps narrowing down the problem I'm playing on all maps on ps4.

    Have you even seen how game breaking the full S+ mod even is? That's why there testing it on a separate branch to see what can and cannot be added to the main game.

    Y’all need to pump the brakes on the hate train. 25gb of fixes on console and you all whinging because a few things are still broken, nothing in this world is perfect and never will be. Inb4 waited months for this, so have we all and yet we all continued to play, can’t be that bad.

    To everyone at wildcard, your game is sick, I actually love playing it, Gj with the patch and gl with the future ones. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to stay motivated to improve when you have a community as toxic as this.
