  • 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

    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.

    I find it humorous yall keep using the Drake Trench image to promote this map, yet there are no Drakes.

    What about rock drackes on console?

    Why would they have a different stance on drakes for console? WC isn't adding drakes to the map, they rejected the idea. The tweet about Drakes is about unofficially adding it. They won't be on official servers.

    Devs should at least have a ini settings for the drakes and have the reaper character in the maps data so unofficials could just add those back in if wanted to

    Any chance of ever answering my ticket that was submitted 18 days ago? Begging to get the feeling you don’t care about your player base

    Unfortunately, I have to agree. Although Ark is my favourite game by far, the developers don't care about the player community much and completely ignore people who experience any issues with the game, as they couldn't care less. They haven't made it possible for Mac users like me to play Valguero yet, and so I submitted a ticket sometime ago and yet I still have not received a reply. This is truly frustrating that such a great game has such a bad support team.

    So, once again, are we getting set up for a last-minute tweet about how Valguero is excluded from the 2x event?  It says all servers, just like the last announcement, and official network, just like the last announcement, and 2x tame/harvest/XP, just like the last announcement.  The ARK playerbase is not stupid to assume you guys mean Valguero too, and honestly will have license to be irritated if the Friday morning tweet pops out saying "VALGUERO EXCLUDED, JAYKAY ON 2X PEOPLES".

    @Cedric?

    1 will valguero be for p+ on release for console

    2 are the ice and chalk golems tameable

    1:I guess it will support any game mode.

    2:Golems tame on PC the old fashion way, rockets in his ass, on Val, just tamed an ice one, but Im on a pvt server though.

     

    3:anybody know a confirmation date for console ? 1st july or so people from my ps4 cluster stopped playing until this is up, its really fun on PC but console deserves the love as well.

    There already was one. Before the Royale craze there was survival of the fittest. I've still got it on steam.

    Not to be a brat but I would like to ask why Maturation, egg hatching, and mating are no longer added into the rotations for "special events"?

    Griffin's are the special creature of Ragnarok.

    Continues to add Ice Wyvern.

    Wyverns are seen on several maps, including the wyverns from scorched earth in locations like ragnarok. ice wyverns are just a new type, and from popularity it just makes sense to see them in this map.

    Good Morning/ Afternoon

    Questions:

    P+ PVE:

    1) Will or When will the drops be back on, on P+ PVE?

    2)When will the sticky bomb no longer work against player's, structures, and tames?

    Comment: If P+ is a issue to maintain; it would seem better to just be rid of it rather than it exist in an unloved state.

    SE PVE

    Extinction:

    1) When will MEK's either get a food bar or no longer starve and without tribe log listing? (found out the hard way)

    FYI:  Still experiencing building collisions where there should not be any. (unable to build error)

    General:

    1) Will there be the standard transfer restriction delay with regards to the new map?

    Thank You

    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

    It's funny how rude people can be when other people are just trying to help out

    With all of the mesh holes and glitches I've been seeing, I'm actually glad it's not on console yet. Also, I'm hoping they'll add Rock Drakes and Basilisks by the time it comes to console but not holding my breath

    That should be expected when you pull dates out of your behind without a souce.
