Community Crunch 188: Summer Bash, Sponsored Mods, and Maintenance
Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!
Summer Bash 2019
Start your summer adventures in ARK tomorrow with the Summer Bash event. Servers will begin to be updated around 17:00 UTC (10AM PDT). If you missed the post, check out the details below!
Modding Community Update
Sponsored Mod Program applications are once again OPEN! If you are interested in sponsorship for your projects, please fill out the application here:
The entry period for the ARK Modding contest has officially closed! We are now in a period of internal voting where we will select the finalists. Then, before you have a chance to vote on the finalists to determine the winner, we will be doing a round of spotlights on each of them. Best of luck to all of the mod authors that are participating!
Lastly, We have two new projects joining the Sponsored Mod Program today! Please check out these projects and show the authors some community love & support.
If you are like me and live by the phrase "Work smart not hard" Then Automated ARK might be just the mod for you. Build up processing systems to handle all those materials you gather while you go to enjoy other aspects of the ARK. Automated ARK will handle the crafting work for you.
Do you like cold harsh environments? You might be crazy, but we still have just the map for you. Antartika is, as you would guess, a map that is themed around the icy environments. Survival will be a challenge on this map, but you're up to the challenge, right?
We'll be performing maintenance on July 3rd 4:00 PM UTC for servers specified in the posts below. Stay up to date with current maintenance or report outages using the links below.
For legacy players that had servers removed by the most recent migration: Saves will be available by end of the week, which includes updated legacy PvE saves.
There will be no EVO event while Summer Bash is live.
Until next time!
All the best,
