  • 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!

    Structures Plus (S+) & Kibble Rework Beta!


    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.

    You can apply for sponsorship here.

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

    User Feedback

    Who cares about more empty promises. It's a good time killing game as it is, my biggest problem is that WC announces some new gimmick then takes years to implement. S+ was originally announced before the official launch out of early access, and in the two years they have only included being able to place sloped ceilings upside down and a pick up timer. I guess they are better then Bethesda though.

    Any chance the straps of Allo saddles will ever be able to be dyed? It's weird that the other five color regions can be dyed (very nicely, I might add) and then you're stuck with brown straps.

    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.....
