  • Community Crunch 191: Mod Contest Voting Opens

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

    Valguero for Console

    Ark-Survival-Evolved.jpg

    It's a light week in terms of news, as this week the team will be busy addressing any recent issues related to the Valguero launch. We'll also be identifying ways to address recent duping from an exploit that was isolated to the XBOX network.  We've fixed this particular exploit with the Valguero patch and will work with the community to identify exploits that may still exist. Transfers should be re-enabled on all servers now.

    As always, transfers on Valguero will be disabled for XBOX and PS4 for a period of time.  The timing will be similar to PC (But adjusted) and updated in the thread below, once confirmed.

    It may be quiet now, but there are exciting things on the horizon!

     

    Voting Is Open!

    Did you guys go to a random store and buy toy dinosaurs to post with the picture or something? You couldn't get someone to print out some cool dinosaurs from the game? So a odd group of people at wild card.

    Is the bonus event active for PC official PVE servers on map Valguero? I understand it says excluding but it is worded weird and I wanted to make sure. Kinda sad if there’s not bonus event this weekend for PVE PC official Valguero servers 😕

    This update has messed up imprinting big time on xbox idk how but for example pteranodon gets 2 imprints 50 percent each on official same with rhinos now its 25 percent but imprinting time is still the same making it impossible to get to 100% before its fully grown messed up 3 of my mounts needs to be fixed fast major issue FOUND dont even wanna play until its fixed 

    what do you mean a ptera takes roughly 2 days to raise so 4 imps is easy to get if it had 25 each time

    2nd straight weekend with no EVO event? Why say it's being activated, when you don't activate it?

    A lot of promising mod entries. Personally, I'm really excited for the NPC mod. I think it has a lot of potential. I wanna see where it goes. :)

    Agreed they need to do stuff to switch. It is a rip-off. U guys should add another map or add something new or at least new servers. Plz

    Hey could WC please explain why no 2x on Valguero. I mean if you want the people building up on there to have any chance of competing with the Alpha and Mega tribes on the other servers they need a 2x to help with the grind and taming just like everyone else playing the game. It really does not make any sense to me.

    Because it’s a new map, and all new maps have evo events disabled for the first few weekends. My assumption would be that everyone complaining are new to the game because the older lot would have experienced this from previously released maps and known the deal.

    I host my Ark server on my PC at my home on Windows 10. If you are doing the same thing and want to play on Valguero I suggest you make regular backups of the saved games. There's not much of anything you can do about hosting on a console but with the PC you can make regular backups of your maps and save them in another location on your hard drive. hopefully this is useful for some of you.  I host on PC and play on XBOX , You can do the following

    1. C:\Users\yourusernamehere\AppData\Local\Packages\StudioWildcard.4558480580BB9_1w2mm55455e38\LocalState\Saved\Maps this is the saved game location for those hosting using Windows 10

    2. Highlight all of the folders, right click and save to zipped folder or if you use winrar add to archive and rename (I use Ark 7-29-2019 1105pm for example)

    3. Cut the zip/archived file and paste it somewhere else like My Documents in a folder called Ark backups

    *4. If you have transferred off another map and into Valguero, and you are not spawning into your character but are being asked to respawn at a random location like a new character, and you have a backup already, reload the backup so you can get your characters back and go to C:\Users\yourusernamehere\AppData\Local\Packages\StudioWildcard.4558480580BB9_1w2mm55455e38\LocalState\Saved\clusters\solecluster and delete the files from here. This folder is where the uploaded character data is stored and once deleted you should be able to switch maps. Only do this if you have transferred and can't load your uploaded survivor.

    Deinonychus is broken on non dedicated servers on Xbox. I can’t climb with it at all. It stays in one spot and just “jumps” in place

    It does seem like when Jen left the Q&A has gotten real vague or non existent from WC.

    -Im a console player. When I'm voting for all these mods and maps, we i see any of them?

    -Im looking forward to more QOL patches.
