    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!

    Is there a fix for Ragnarok cave artifacts not spawning?

    ”Fix for rare crash”?  That’s funny.

    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.

    Sailing along arr

    No wonder console players are 2 updates behind PC, we haven’t had an update for the past 6 weeks! Well, at least we’ve been able to enjoy Winter Wonderland for all that time though it’s going to get a bit stupid going into February with that event still active, but by the sounds of that announcement, the console patch won’t be coming today.

    Man i was hoping that thay put the option to change stack size.

    Yeah, I was so hoping and the ini files. So far all the changes they post for the pc are awesome, can't wait. Then we find out we have to wait months for it, if ever.

    '"Raptor Claus has arrived" Ho ho ho ho' shall haunt my dreams for the rest of time....

    I really hope we dont need to wait another 6 weeks for the next update, swear all the good stuff was in the most recent pc patch.

    It's cool to get another patch but agree sucks being behind patches compared to pc. Plus wondering if we're going to see any of the improvements and changes pc got on their n last update on 24th like stack sizes and timers pausing while dinos are cryoed that would be awesome to have....

    The patch notes shown in the announcement are what the PC had 2 patches ago, so even when console receives the upcoming patch, we won’t receive the things you listed until the patch after that.

    El servidor 466 más  de 24 horas y sigue sin sesiones encontradas me parece patetico y de cerdos por la parte de wildcard que llevemos mas de 24 horas con un servidor cerrado sin poder acceder a el y me ago una pregunta vosotros entendeis d informatica ? Teneis un minimo de conocimiento para crear un juego? Por q no es logico q a dia d hoy sigamos teniendo estos problemas por q lo unico q os interesa es ganar dinero y todos los demas problemas os limpiais la putas manos q los jugadores y sus opiniones os importan una mierda . Gracias y recuerdos a la familia

    when update for Switch? spawn need to be fixed, in the island map was 3 Titanosaur

    NOTE - On official servers and by default on others, only 3 Titanosaurs can exist at once on The Island and they can not be fed once tamed (unless you enable it in advanced settings), rendering them temporary tames.

    How about the Gigapithicus not collecting fiber?

    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
