  • Community Crunch 167: S+ Building Contest Extended, Mod Sponsorship Applications Closing, & Steam Sale!

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

    Attention Builders!

    Fancy yourself a top tier builder? We want to see what you can do with the new structure changes! 

    Hop into the beta (details on how to do that below) and build to your heart's content using any of our officially supported maps (The Island, The Center, Ragnarok, Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction). You can do this in your single player world or your unofficial server if you have access to one. We’ll be picking the best builds submitted to us for featuring in an upcoming video trailer showcasing the building changes to ARK similar to the announcement video we did for our latest mod contest. 

    Submit pictures and/or a video of your build, your map save and coordinates to your build to [email protected] so we can take a look. You can get the direct coordinates to your build location by enabling setcheatplayer true and jotting down the coordinates presented on screen. You can upload your map save to a file sharing website such as Google Drive, Dropbox, etc, and include the link in the email. 

    Submissions will be accepted until February 11th (extended by one week)! We look forward to seeing your masterpieces!

    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 in the near future. We plan to have one more update to the beta for testing before the final version is released to the main game.

    Please check out the post below for all of the information on how you can get involved in play testing this beta.

    Modding Community Updates!

    We just want to remind all of our mod authors that tomorrow is the last day to apply for this sponsorship period. Please make sure to get any last minute applications submitted by February 5th 11:59 PM Pacific.

    After the application period closes we will be reviewing projects and will announce our selection at the beginning of March. Good luck, everyone!

    You know, I have had this website saved for ages. I used to check it every day. Follow Arks updates, and imagine the possibilities. Read about the new creatures and updates. And see the community creations. But now? I am removing it sadly. It doesn't really get used anymore. And when I do click on it, it's unfortunately filled with contests and information that has very little relevance to my game experience. The posts are infrequent and inconsistent in content and quality. There simply has to be more going on in the community than these pitiful entries would lead someone to believe. As sad as it makes me feel, I think Ark had its run. It was a good one. But, the developers aren't interested in the level of support they once had for it. I don't blame them at all. It's the reality of both the industry and time itself. But I always felt that Studio Wildcard was better. That they tried to consistently keep the fans updated. But now, it's become mostly unreliable to still expect that from them. This used to be a very relied upon feed. Not so much anymore. But the memories of the passed few years with Ark was great. Maybe ARK 2: Survival Evolved Further will rejuvenate your love for the community once again in the future

    I feel like these announcements are becoming more like a copy and paste from last week or the week before that, nothing interesting to read nowadays!

    Lets hope we get a V-day event like last year with some nice dino colors....

    For those asking about the V-day event, expect an announcement by next Monday. Events don’t usually get announced until the week commencing that community crunch, the same way evo events work.

    Just copy and paste from a previous week add a new fan art and Community Crunch 167 is done. 

    This used to be an enjoyable feature but it's pretty obvious that most of the development is now focused on Atlas :(

    You should hire someone who checks around the community to do these Crunches. Post things happening on the subreddit/forum, fun/interesting things happening on Streams, post helpful/fun/interesting Youtube videos, find more fan art, etc.
    This one single "contest" announcement did not warrant a full "community" crunch.

    I agree the crunch seems to have become just copy and paste. But S+ is their next big thing and even though it seems to be taking ages. They are trying to make sure it's as good as they can do before update. Face it if it was rushed out a buggy mess people would complain, now it's taking time to be ready people are complaining.

    You guys gonna address/fix the new glitch that console players are experiencing after the latest patch? Players are getting trapped in foundations and rocks.

    So they are adding new structures but still no perch to put shoulder animals on? How has this not been made yet? Do the dev's even play their own game? I really wonder sometimes.....

    FFS. 

    Ragnarok is and has still been crashing. This is still. Not. A. New. Issue. 

    Are there any plans at all to address this? Any at all?

    It's been over a year. 28 pages. Last reply was Jat in July 2018. 

    I keep popping back into the community crunches hoping to see any kind of progress
