  • Community Crunch 218: New Free Map DLC, New Sponsored Mods, and On The Horizon

    Introducing Crystal Isles

    ARK_Crystal_Isles_Promo_STA.jpg

    We are very excited to announce that the one-of-a kind experience of the ISO: Crystal Isles map will be coming to PC, XBOX, and PlayStation this Summer!

    Crystal Isles is a stunning, other-worldly map filled with a vibrant display of teeming life scattered amidst its varied landscapes, awe inspiring floating islands and breathtaking biomes. Ever since Crystal Isles launched as a mod in 2016, its fantasy appeal has secured its place as one of the most popular maps within the ARK community and we can't wait to bring it to players as a fully supported free DLC.

    The Crystal Isles DLC will also launch resplendent with a new real-world dinosaur to tame! What do you think the new dinosaur may be?


    In other news, we've been itching to share that we'll be performing a TLC Pass 3 in the Summer of 2020! This TLC pass will see some of our classic creatures get some new love via visual and functional upgrades.

    As we move closer to the release of the new Crystal Isles DLC and our much-awaited TLC Pass 3 we'll share more details and information with our players.

    Dead Survival

    Tired of dinosaurs? Of course you aren’t, but sometimes we do want a little change in our diet. Dead Survival does just that, you can swap out the wildlife of the game with some … not… quite life? Zombies… I’m trying to say you can have zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. Hordes of them even.

    Check out the Dead Survival Mod

    Roleplay Additional Items

    RP communities have been a long time aspect of ARK, but sometimes our core structures can feel a bit insubstantial when you are trying to build a set for acting in. Roleplay Additional Items can add a lot more flourish to your locations from lighting structures and gear, to new taxidermy stations!

    Check out the Roleplay Additional Items Mod

    ArkVenture Park

    I’m pretty sure we have all dreamed of having our own backyard water slides and roller coasters. (Zen may have actually tried at one point, and failed… obviously) But now you can do just that in your base. Build that mine-cart roller-coaster that plows through your living room or a water-slide to the lava pools out back!

    Check out the ArkVenture Park Mod

    Castles, Keeps, and Forts: Remastered

    Mod_banner_Template_1080_Modified.jpg

    CKF development went dormant for a little while while the author went on a break. But it’s back, and getting a face-lift. The author is taking what they learned over the years and working on a remastered CKF (The original is still available). So far it’s looking great!

    On The Horizon

    Primitive+

    Primitive+ remains a priority.  We have engineering teams working on the complications from the Genesis update.  We will keep you informed with any significant progress

    Genesis Part I Update

    We're continuing to work on Genesis bugs and balance and we plan to keep up with the rapid iterations. Thank you for your reports and feedback.

    My vote for tic is quetz, giga, mammoth, meglodon and mosa.  And for the love of all things holy.......ADD SOME LIMITED MOVEMENT SPEED TO THE QUETZ!!!!  Make one of the largest flyers USABLE AGAIN!!!  200% movement cap is more than fair!

    Crystal Isles = A woman made this map. Last time I played it, I was getting 15 fps because she just spammed the map with pretty colored tree's. Maybe it's just me, but, huge bummer for video gaming this year so far. Basically going to play until my Nitrado servers expire and that's about it for me I think. 

    HOPEFULLY, New World, will be something that will entertain me, if not, may be giving the gaming a break and just focus on saving money for a bit.

    What about all those people that work weekends and can never experience the Evo events, they finally get a once-in-a-liftetime special Evo event in the week to enjoy. You don't get a weekend event on one occasion and you claim it's unfair.

    Geez what an attitude.

    Agreed! I have Tuesday and wednesday off and only get to play with the multipliers on events.

    If you guys are going to release this map, fix it. It is garbage. Fps on this map 15 to 20. Fps on the center 20 to 25. Fps on all other maps 120+. Don't repeat the center. I loved that map and I love crystal isle but man oh man the fps makes both unplayable.

    Please fix the faces of the lightning Wyvern and other Wyverns. Some have odd eyes (look at the Lightning wyvern’s eyes). Some Dino’s have bulging, sunken or disfigured eyes. (Again, Wyverns). 
    i love my Wyverns. Raising them is my joy. ❤️

    real world Dino will be added? My guess is Either Dracorex Hogwortius (or similar Packy varient), Amargasaurus,  Ceratosaurus, Carcaradontosaurus, maybe a Styrachosaurus? All awesome and stunning variants. 
    brachiosaurus? :O

    What does that have to do with anything?

    All that shows is the type of person you are.

    Did Ark just drop the mic?

    Awesome news on so many fronts so soon after the monster epic success of genesis.

    (except maybe no evo weekend, my poor anky on genesis died horribly in a careless owner 'need a cup of tea, everything will be fine' moment and now I have to tame a new one, WITHOUT KIBBLE... and there's a blue with lilac horn tips 150 patrolling my base ... I need to tame it... but i ain't gonna sit there for 6 hours to achieve that.... I can't.... I won't.... but I really want that anky ..... you're gonna make me sit there 6 hours aren't u).

    ❤️

    It's a must for the lilac alone. I only ever managed to get one with the lilac horns.. sadly it died during an unfortunate incident with a giga.

    No EVO is not good news. I personally think that X2 should be standard that gives you more fun from the game.
    IMHO it needs to replace X1.

    But new map and TLC is great news - thanks guys! Keep up good work!

    x2 already is standard. What you are asking for is x4 to be standard.

    I know what you meant, but today's x1 is actually x2 of the original rates. So people think of the normal rates now as x1 but they technically are x2.

    So anyone that wants the normal rates to become x2 standard means that it would technically be x4 rates.

    But we've had the x2 (if u still hang on to the original rates) for years... at what point can we call them the standard x1 rate. Every time someone mentions one of the other rates which is different from years ago we don't have to hark back to EA vanilla rates. Do we still mention the old 4 hour imprints when we consider imprinting these days, or quetz stam drain, or levelling speed on dolphins?

    The current standard rate is x1 imo - and I agree that it's time for another look at some rebalancing around the current standard rates, especially if we are going to miss some EVO events which make things tolerable atm.

    As exciting as this sounds...not the crunch a good chunk of us were hoping for...new maps are always fun and I get you're trying to stablize genisis. But it would be nice for an update on when you're gunna fix the things genisis broke.

     

    And why no EVO??? Was looking forward to it
