    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!

    Thank you for the large console attention. It was much needed. The first crunch with distinction since March 2018, almost a year.

    Only thing I do not like is another monument to a meshing tribe on the Island. Is it a triple ground mesh with a non mine able stone on top sark_questionmark.

    Can't wait to explore the Island again on a forcetamed corrupted Wyvern without crashing.

    No artifacts or drops on prim+ the island. Canteen engram still not working. It's been since October 16th and all we get are sales pitches. They have no problem taking our money, but refuse to fix the things they break...

    Amen...i agree with you..funny see no fixes and now transfers don't work for us, waste of a big update. They break more than fix with each update.

    Theres a bug with the new update ...

    When transfering to other maps, you loose all stuff in inventory (dont know if its an issue on official). Might be worth looking at, Wilcard.

    I'm having the same problem with foundation edges and small rocks. 

    I live on the side of a river. 

    All there are are small rocks.

    Anyone else getting stuck on random rocks, platforms, and or other stuff?? You can get out of it after a minute or two, but it's just annoying that it happens. I had gotten attacked by raptors getting stuck like that.

    Most servers in a general context improved visually, as I see it. However, the most relevant problems I encountered were a small bug, which shows some parts of the floor and walls in the entire checkered shrine (similar to those platforms that we put in different angles.) I have seen in this last weeks also intense lag when crossing by the sanctuary, I do not know if by the amount of items to render on the screen or due to the amount of bases in the sanctuary.But on the other maps I at least felt that it is slightly flowing mayan.When passing near giant bases I get a single lag and already renders the whole base, and when walking with bases with large numbers of creatures is slightly more fluid, not causing disconnection with the server. But this is my case

    There's been no mention yet regarding any events for Valentine's day, or Easter. I suspect there'll be something, but nothing confirmed at this point.
