  • Community Crunch 187: Valguero Spotlight

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

    Valguero Spotlight

    ARK_VALG_Screenshot_09_Minimized.jpg

    Last week we launched Valguero, a new free DLC that has proven to be popular with the community.  Much like Ragnarok, this map was created by members of the modding community. Our modding community has proven to be full of talent and great content! We love partnering with members of the community to bring free content to all of our passionate survivors.

    While the team is busy with the launch of Valguero on console, we'll highlight some of the videos we've been seeing on Youtube.  We're excited to share what's in store for the future! 


    Upcoming Events
    June 24

    CLASSIC PVP MAINTENANCE
    With the launch of Valguero, some servers were decommissioned. Please see this list for affected servers.

    June 29

    MOD CONTEST ENTRY DEADLINE
    Saturday will be your last chance to compete for a grand prize of 10K! Visit this link for more information

    Modding Updates

    Don't forget that sponsorship applications will open again on July 1st. Make sure to apply if you are interested!

    There are five days left to enter the ARK Modding contest!

    Make sure to get those entries in before the deadline. If you've already entered, make sure you have all edits to your entry pages finished. After submissions close, you will no longer be able to edit the pages.

    We'll have our internal vote for the finalists and then a round of video spotlights. During the finals it will be you, the players, that will decide the winner of the contest. So make sure that you check out the entries.

    Functional Mods can be found here.  Maps, over here

    There are two separate categories, two sets of prizes, and two opportunities to vote.
    Each contest you vote in will enter you for a chance to win an ARK collectors edition box set signed by members of the development team.
    These box sets come with a soundtrack, some ark goodies, and most notably a large cloth map that would look great on your wall and a leather-bound, full color,  creature dossier.

    Happy Modding!

    Any chance of TLCing some of the herbivores to make them relevant to the current meta? We've got Theris and Megatheriums, sure, but I sure would like to ride into battle on a Mammoth one of these days.

    ok thanks however the gamepedia wiki was wrong for days it's something i expect from the devs especially with so much confusion from the mod having extinction creatures and griffin, also wiki is run by volunteers not official ark, also plucking random dates out of nowhere is what i try to avoid? have you got a source saying 18th 19th? if not next time dont reply if you don't know again this is something devs should be answering

    Beware that there is a major hole in the aberration cave floor where your player will fall through into the void below before getting teleported back to the surface outside. It happened at 31.3 - 55.3 in my SP game. Good map otherwise.

    I have two questions are you going to add the plugin that detects and deals meshers on consoles? As a good percentage of players mesh ruining the natural raid mechanics I've seen the chaos first hand as a server owner.

     

    My second question is how long is valgero as we as console players are getting sick of the constant delays to nearly every map you release getting it a month or more later is frustrating.

    I'd suggest to pick videos you are featuring better.

    Video with base locations/caves is totally non informative. "Let's see here, no idea what its gonna be", "Let's fly through textures" and other bs. Or ark ran so low on movie creators?

    Please look into optimizing the Linux server build. There are a bunch of us experiencing extremely high CPU usage on this map, even without mods and minimal activity. Clearly there's an issue here.

    i guess i'm one of those few who'd cherish a page-full of bug fixes and balancing over a stupid new map. hell, i would have gladly taken dino tlc's over a new map. we know you just recycle the material...it bemuses me how you haven't figured out how to save scorched earth. we've given you advise (most are poop except mine) but we still see those empty servers. and when it's time to recycle old and unused for a new "modded" map, guess what...
