    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!

    Can you fix the duping on official PS4 servers? Kind of ridiculous when some tribes have to grind a few days to make a decent mek and you got OC and Asia servers running around cripwalking on servers with 30 level 300 meks and duped 100 imprint gigas

    lol can you fix your damn server before posting thing like this...

    Reporters don't run the presses, car dealers don't make the cars, and your starbucks cashier doesn't harvest the beans.  Like many companies, job responsibilities are allocated to different folks.  And as a light jab to Cedric, you'd not want him being responsible for fixes anyway.  Trust me. :P

    No it’s not my internet especially when I have 10 people on the server I play on at any given time have the same problem.  Number 2, NO S*** SHERLOCK!  Yeah there is an epilepsy warning on every game, but that doesn’t mean that something broken shouldn’t be fixed as a QOL, and if i’m In the green on area on center (along with the rest of my server and I’m sure tons of other center servers) it’s annoying after a while I can’t accomplish what I need to accomplish and with the logging in issues?  Yeah right take me at least 1/2 the day to get back in.  Ya know the Pegasus wouldn’t be a bad addition to the game they’ve made worst additions (the diplo is at the top of the list).

    Switch version is a bad idea. The thing can barely run it's exclusives. Runs out of power within like 5mins.

    🤣🤣 

    With the first model, you could play play without having to connect it to the current for more than 3 hours minimum with the most power demanding video games. The new 2019 model takes that to about 5 hours, and may be more, depending on the game you are playing and its energy needs. But the magic of ARK on Nintendo Switch is not "playing away from home", but gathering 4 or 5 people playing in the same room connected to the WiFi. I can assure you it was an amazing experience.

    HOW TF YALL KEEP COMING OUT WITH MORE AND MORE CRAP FOR THE GAME IF YOU NEVER FIX THE OTHER SH!T YOU DONE MESSED UP ON. LIKE SERIOUSLY CAN YALL EVEN HANDLE A GAME OF THIS MAGNITUDE? DO YALL EVEN REALIZE THAT AS IM WRITING THIS MY DINOS ARE STARVING AND DESPAWNING AS WE SPEAK? DO YOU EVEN CARE THAT ALOT OF US CANT GET INTO OUR SERVERS OR THE GAME PERIOD? I HAVE A WHOLE YEARS WORTH OF GRINDING AND TAMING AND RAISING IM ABOUT TO LOSE AND IM NOT THE ONLY ONE. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF US LOSING IT ALL CUZ YALL DONT KNOW WHAT YOURE DOING. MY BEST ADVICE TO YOUR EXECS WOULD BE TO SELL. YUP I SAID IT. SELL THE WHOLE DAMN COMPANY TO SOMEONE WHO CAN DO BETTER THAN THE CRAP JOB YOUVE DONE. ITS NOT RIGHT TO KEEP MAKING MONEY OFF PPL IF YOUR GAME IS SO DEFECTIVE AND YOU DONT HAVE THE RIGHT PPL WORKING AT YOUR COMPANY. EITHER HIRE SOMEONE WHO CAN ACTUALLY FIX AND SOLVE PROBLEMS OR SELL THE COMPANY. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. AND YOU CAN GET MAD AND STOMP ALL YOU WANT AND THREATEN TO BAN ME BUT IT WONT CHANGE THE FACT IM TELLING YOU WHAT EVERYONE ELSE WANTS TO SAY BUT WON'T SAY. AND IT WONT CHANGE THE FACT IM RIGHT. I LOVE THIS GAME ITS MY RELIEF WHEN I GET HOME FROM A LONG DAY BUT WHAT IS IT WORTH IF I SPEND THOSE LITTLE 3 HRS I GET TO PLAY A DAY STARING AT THE TITLE SCREEN? SMH

    Where the hell did you get that number from? Not even in the glory days of Ark did they have 9 million players. Game breaking bugs reduces it to this: https://steamcharts.com/app/346110

    Ark is the 11th game with most players on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/stats/Steam-Game-and-Player-Statistics?l=t

    Searched it up. Of course, my info has a small chance to be wrong, and if so my bad. People make mistakes too.

    Most likely the week before Christmas. Looking at the calendar i'd hazard a guess at Tue 17th Dec.

    Lol, still no fix to the Perfect Explorer Achievement being broken and unattainable. Posts been up for months and Wildcard hasn't even commented on them. I think the DMV would be better at game design lol.
