  • Community Crunch 188: Summer Bash, Sponsored Mods, and Maintenance

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

    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.

    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.



    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! 👋


    Server Maintenance/Updates


    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.

    Outages (ark.gg/outage)

    Maintenance (ark.gg/maintenance)


    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!

    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. 

    I agree with you on the switch we own that version too but all in all its a great game just not on the switch lol and all I was saying on my comment was the fact they they said there was only going to be the dlcs that we already have and yet they are adding more to keep the game going I'm all for it and I hope they keep up the awesome work
