    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! 👋

    Bikini only bottoms works correct, nothing changes with tops when I equip it.

    Additional report for bugs 

    In scorched earth, the rex never spawns anymore. I only have tamed around 6 rexes before it's became like this. (It's really old issue it's not new one I dare report this finally)

    And, when I picked up of wyvern egg then it's disappears sometimes. And I personally resolving this like if I picked up, I put egg into my creature's inventory. But I'm not sure it works or not.

    Just in case, I say mine are japanese version. Thanks for reading!

    No 2x taming?  Whats the point?  I planned for 2x weekend taming, like we ALWAYS have.  Way to drop the ball, Wildcard.

    Are we going to get 2x taming this weekend, or is that option off the table because of the summer bash event?

    You can always tame low lvl's with nice colours, and breed them. After all its 2x breeding...

    Are you serious? They no longer do evo events on top of themed events. Want proof? Look for where it says there will be 2x taming - it’s almost as if not mentioning something means it’s not included.

    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.

     

     Im playing on Pc on a Crossark the Crossark does have the Event except for Valguero. We were all waiting for the last 3 Days for the Event to go live on Valguero becouse they sayed including Valguero, now every one got back on the other Maps just because of the Fail or the non information of Wildcard

    oooo! I like the new skins! you guys should make more armors an hair styles and dresses for the ladies! and stuff to decorate our homes with, as a builder I would be all over that! n character tlc. you should add mermaids its one of the mythical creatures you dont have in the game yet. they could spawn inside a underwater cave or have there own cove. they could be a boss fight and maybe if you win you could get something that can give you a mermaid tail you can take on and off and it could boost your breath underwater or something.  or could use them in a all water map and make a bunch more underwater animals and new underwater base stuff.

    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 👉

    They didnt even create it. They just deleted stuff off it because they didn't want shekels to be lost.

    Man console players are going to tick off wildcard to the point that they just say forget it and let it die on console I'm a console player myself but dang hang in there and wait like an adult and stop complaining before they say forget consoles all together just be happy that your getting free content soon something they didn't have to do to begin with! 

     

    To wildcard thank you for continued support of probably the best game out there so far and please keep up the hard and tedious work of creating new and exciting maps and creatures for all of us to enjoy

    They did create it for console it was written for PC and coding for PC doesn't automatically switch to consoles

    Still no Valguero for console?  Not even an exact date yet? Well this event is pointless for alot of us who are waiting to play till the new map comes out.  I was hoping for the map to release tomorrow so I could play the event but thanks for nothing WC

    Yea I hear ya keep loading it to see if we got the map yet. Suck console is an after thought for stuff. Then we know everything about a "new map" when it drops. So for those if us who want to jump on it the day it's released and see it new we can't because everyone knows the map inside and out because of YouTube

    You dont need to "tick them off" for them to ignore you. Look at Switch. That said, & coming from that perspective of a half year of complete silence from devs with no support or patches for paying Switch customers, this "OMG, our new free map is taking too long on PS4/Xbox due to it getting the PC Beta treatment." is pretty funny to me. So is the lack of appreciation for an event thats free & (if you find it boring or not) atleast introduces some new things to the mix.  Enjoy your new outfits, emotes & dino colors provided by your event. Its more than Switch has gotten- it just gets an evoulution event like numbers tweak, no new content. Same for the mobile crowd & their broken God mode (but at least in their case they have payed for the perk they are complaining about thats not working correctly) try to enjoy your added content of dungeons etc.

    Enjoy the additional things you have been given, or if they bore you...try moving on for a bit. Im coming back to PS4 Ark when the Val map drops. Ive given up on the Switch version, as it has the appearance of a pure bait & switch cash grab. It is what it is. Dwelling on the negative aspects doesnt seem to acomplish anything & if you are like me, just sours your mood.

    Still no colored dinos on Prim Plus? Can anyone confirm that we are not getting them on Prim Plus? Send a tweet to Ced via twitter. I have done too. Maybe he will respond to you.

    The fact that you even have a primitive plus to "bone" you is more than switch players have, lol....bet their version costs more than yours too. Again, coming from the third world country that is switch support, the entitlement via circumstance is mostchuckle worthy

    I’m a switch player as well, and as I’m too poor to buy a PS or Xbox I can’t try ur fancy valguero. It would be awesome if anyone has info as to if and when updates for switch will be coming. And to all you whiny PS4 and XB1 players constantly complaining about no valguero, just remember you could be in the same boat as me, NO maps, NO mods, NO events, NO DLC! So quit complaining about ur valguero or your cancelled evo event, you have the proper version of ark.
