    Balance and Quality-Of-Life Updates

    We'll be prioritizing some balance and quality of life changes that have been requested by the community.  Examples of some of these changes can be seen in PC patch 302.4 (notes below).

    Quote
    • Added animation staggering system by default to reduce CPU overhead -- dinos in the far-distance will update their animations on alternate frames. Players can disable in this in the Options Menu "Advanced Options" Tab: "Animation Staggering" (enables it at all at far distance) and "Low Quality Animations" (makes it more aggressive, lowers the distance at which staggering is used)
    • Improved client and server CPU performance in various ways
    • Vastly improved server stability, with various Network Channel threading crashes fixed
    • Changed droppeditem physics back to client-side prediction for player-dropped items, and physx-sleeping logic on droppeditems to improve server performance.
    • Improved droppeditem placement when dropping items from structures, to reduce the possibility of them getting stuck
    • Reloading bows from prone TPV no longer gets them stuck
    • Firing bows while in orbit camera no longer gets them stuck
    • Firing bows while running no longer gets them stuck
    • Made it easier to look at items to pick them up
    • Fixed the whip to properly pickup items that are flat on the ground (previously would miss such items)
    • Added "F" alternate activate option on items to pickup all items in a nearby range
    • Added optional new functionality to limit the number of droppeditems in an area, and enabled it on dedicated servers. To use it on unofficial servers, add the following INI values to your server's Game.ini ShooterGameMode section (> 0 to use the limit):

    Please continue to voice your feedback on what you'd like to see through our various platforms!

    Excited about this update. So tired of my game crashing and losing progress and blueprints for items I have on hand. Even putting things away and saving doesn’t help. Everything I’ve accumulated within an hour (if I make it that long) gets lost, and even lost a Wyvern to the crashing. Hopefully everything gets fixed with this ACTUAL update this go around.

    No one should spend another penny on this game until the developers fix the constant crashing, and numerous other issues.  This game is fun, when it works.  But mostly just aggravating.

    This seems to be a thing. Clearly the update had issue so instead of sorting those issues they roll it out onto xbox. Well done now Rag official that i am on at least does nothing but roll back and crash. Probably the worst i have seen it. Sadly trapped on that because i cant stay in long enough to get off the damn server. But what more can i say from a company that has 4 years of poor life choices.

    I absolutely love being able to leave server after their patch to fix things was over. Left with a full kit and solid tames on me/ in upload thinking everything was fine cause patch was done and i wasnt restricted from leaving server. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH JOKES ON ME.  This is ark the worste managed game in history. So when i lose my kit or my base gets raiding is wild card going to compensate me for the things i lose worth countless hours of gameplay absolutely not. Just keep telling me to survive.  That’s probably what that keep telling this broken ass game just every time they update.

    What a way to really celebrate this Thanksgiving event - with FOUR crashes and rollbacks on Aberration317 in the span of two hours. FOUR. With the servers down about ten to fifteen minutes each time. I would say you should be embarassed, Wildcard, but this is par the norm for you, isn't it? raptoring disgusting.

    EU-PVP-Official-Ragnarok STILL DOWN!!!

    Seems like a lot of servers are still down. Me and a few of my friends can’t get on (different tribes on one of the servers) can’t get on The Center, Ext. or Val. Was able to finally get on Ab last night . Bummer cause I’m finally off for a few days and now no Ark 😡  🤦‍♀️

    Anybody wondering when they will actually tell us the specific release date for genesis

    No, it's ages away. They said late January. There's no point in them releasing a specific date, that just leads to disappointment if it's not met.

    Today, November 30, is the birthday of the release of the Nintendo Switch version... congratulations ARK, you have given us hundreds and thousands of hours of joy, suffering, frustration and helplessness, without a single response in all this time by Wildcard Studio. A completely abandoned son...

    Well the mysterious item, is the mining drill.  C’mon man!  To quote Cedric, if you guys are just going to run through the same stuff ya unveiled during the extra life stream it’s not really a mystery is it?  As far as the patch notes eh there’s a few good things in there.  Picking up all items in a range would be handy.  As well as limiting the number of items ya drop.  I mostly play on the center official and I would LOVE to see the lightning fixed in the snow biomes and green ob area.  Man that would be a nice QOL.  Every time it storms the lightning keeps up when it quits and then just compounds with every storm after that until it’s a constant lightning flash reflecting off the snow and sky.  I’m glad I don’t have epilepsy because wow that would really mess up some people.  In order to fix it I have to relog, and wash rinse repeat when it starts storming again.  Other than that it’s nice to see that you guys are really taking care of the crashing issues.  It is definitely 100x better than what was during pre-release, that was brutal, so thank you.  The next mystery how about showing something that was NOT in the extra life live stream, please?

    That might be your internet or connection in general my friend, epilepsy warning in every fine print of a game also
