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

    ARK_SummerBash_FeatureImage_1920x1080_reduced.jpg

    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:
    https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/modding/apply-for-sponsorship/

    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.

    Automated ARK

    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.

    Antartika

    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? 😉

    Happy Modding! 👋

    Hi, I can’t wait for the new map! 

    Also, there’s people who payed 20 dollars for the God Console and I’m one and somethings like Invulnerable button isn’t working ever since you guys made the new 2.0 update, (which I love btw). BUT PLEASE FIX GOD CONSOLE, we paid for it. THANK YOU AND THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!

    I'm so mad that the ice map is both spelled incorrectly and missed out on a great pun opportunity. Should have been AntARKtika

    Just polished, runs perfectly no bugs clearly you don't play ark so go troll another forum.  Aberration was put on hold by a month or two and when it released, it was full of holes lag and other crap and it was an official WC map.  @Ok8888

     

    What I don't get is why they can't just let us know when it will drop in July, I bet they are not even close hence the murky timetable.

    Because things for console have to go through certification by Sony/Microsoft, and once a product has been submitted for certification the time line for that is out of the developers hands. They'll have a rough date to expect that process to be complete, providing no changes need to be made to meet cert standards for either platform, but nothing more than that - thus the sometime in July date we were given.

    No Poop sherlock.  They wouldn't announce it if they didn't have clearance.

    So not only do we Switch players not get Valguero, nor do we get the summer event, we don’t even get an evo event...

     

    We will never buy anything produced by you or your related studios again.

    Plenty of games, DLC, expansions etc are announced without having passed cert, that's what happens in the games industry. Most games are announced with an approx launch date well before they are sent for cert, usually before they even alpha. So yeah WC would announce it early because that's a pretty normal practice in the industry, especially if they're sending the update to multiple platforms with the update for one of them ready for launch. 

    No need to be rude about it.

    Like said before. Stuff is announced before certification is passed.

    Why ?

    You announce an Event which is great. Sucks for console as PC get it on the new map while we still wait on release date . So again we fall behind . Plus During the event you choose to maintenance as well , how much is this going to stuff people around especially if break things while people are trying to breed . Last time this happened I knew people who lost alot of dinos.

    So I expect we wont be getting a new map during a 2 week event taking us to the middle of July at the least for release.

     

    tbh I'm taking any1s side but you need to lay off wc cuz it takes more time to get stuff on console because they have to optimize stuff and they have to also send the up psn then psn does some other stuff which take a long time sorry can't remember what is called

    I'm a bit disappointed by the colour options for this event, should have used pink and yellow too, they're very summery colours, I think.

    I don’t want to completely invalidate your whole post but wildcard did not create this map so your argument is weak and null at best. 🤪

    WildCard spent 5 months working on it with the mod dev.

     

    If you had played the Mod version you could tell the difference. The mod was really rough and the official version is much smoother.

    why your servers down again and again after you updates?!  it's amazing how you wave a red rag over and over again in the face of your players and exhaust their patience

    On behalf of the Console community, I’m very disappointed we didn’t get a release date for Valguero.... we just get sometime in July....as always, we are just an after thought.....

    Wildcard forgetting console as always, but I actually did see a gm on a p+ official server so it is getting better

    Why are people complaining about the release date of valquero on console? We should just be happy that we are even getting the map. Creating isn't no easy thing, it takes time and so much work to create digitally. Plus first releases are gonna have bugs and glitches, they're just working to make this perfect for console. They wanna make sure when we first get a hold of this map that it's polished. If they rushed it to just get it out, I doubt it would be any good. So just be happy theyre even finalising anything to make your game experience amazing. So hold on to your damn panties and just have a little patience. They'll release it when it's finished. There's nothing you can do about the release date but just wait 👉

    The days almost up and we still haven't even got the update, we all know how reliable wildcard is with release dates
