  • 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.

    The sponsored Mods look great! Any chance these will be implemented as full content? Or are they just being showcased to show what the community is doing?

    I might be the only one, but for once im glad there is no 2x event, it will just attract more ppl to the genesis servers making it harder to log in if its full

    Is the Crystal Isles map going to have its passive tame crystal wyvern like on PC? Because that was a very cool and important feature of that map in my opinion.

    WOW! SO HYPED!!!! Now we are getting a TLC AND a new map. Please, I am begging you, join sides with Ark Additions and add the Cryolophosaurus, Concavanator, and Domination Rex with the TLC as in past ones you have added Dino's. If you did that would really boost the game in my opinion. STILL HYPED THOUGH WITH THIS NEWS! Can't wait to see the teasers coming in the future.

    im hyped for the Crystal isls 

     

    but i wonder. will the crystal Isls Animals (the ones from the mod) will be there with the new dino like

     the Crystal Wyvern's and Griffin, Giant Worker Bee , Grand Embertros Liquefied Dinos, Spectral Squid and Zombie wyvern? or just the new dino?

    same for resources?

     

    and for the Dino? i hope a Carcodonto, Deinosuchus or something!

     

    and the sponsored mods are Really Cool (i like the zombie one) but out of all the Sponsored mods i love The "Ark Additions" where they add new dinos. i love that guys mod (can't play with it though sense Console) and if i had to vote of any mod it would be That one!

     

    and the TLC is going to be cool! i hope they do the turtle so i can bite like a Snapping turtle and it able to Spin on its shell like a Bad Blade! 

     

    or the Deer could have a Larger size and can do a front kick, back kick and uses it horns to cause Bleed and the Male is built for combat. while the Female can still attack but all resources are less heavy and they are very fast!

     

    Mammoth can have a Platform, able to shoot Ice Cold water to freeze enemies,  a Herd buff and new look!

     

    just some ideas!

    makes sense to release more content that will be bugged and broken on top everything that is already broken in this game since Genesis, just keep making it harder to play catch up and fix things. U just released a huge amount of content and it broke the entire game with issues and constant server updates, yet still not even remotely close to fixed after two weeks.

    They didn't even fix the genesis bugs and will already launch another map, will bathe in the soda wildcard, Do something useful for the game and stop putting more buggy map have, no one can take it anymore, In addition to the inability of you of not being able to fix anything. If they can't fix it, don't throw anything, that sucks, I can't tame a bloodstalker because of the anti mesh that kills them every time and even that you didn't answer me. Things are invented and you can't keep what you promise. fix the bugs after inventing something else, thank you very much.

    Looks a pretty map, but i'm not into custom maps, i just bother to go on Center or Ragna for specific items (giga skin, tekgrams). I just went on Valguero to assist mates for Alpha boss. Anyway

    About EVO, it is nice to wait. Putting a x2 event would break the hype. More we'll wait, more we'll appreciate an EVO event :D

    New TLC pass?  Amazing! Please, please let the Gallimimus be one of the creatures getting a TLC.  Its model is really subpar and its turning radius is absolutely ridiculous.  Like, I dunno who thought it was a good idea to make the fastest land mount have one of the largest turning radiuses in the game, but it makes the poor thing basically unusable.  The Bronto could really use some love too.

    Some TLC ideas:

    The Megalodon should be able to leap out of the water and snatch players off rafts/boats.

    The Tuso (Squid) should be able to reach the surface and attack players and their  boats.

    Aberration needs a creature whose saddle can be used as a mobile smithy. It's the only map that doesn't contain a creature with that ability.  Or maybe introduce Aberrant Castroides and have them be rare spawns that can be found in the blue or green zones.

    Make Griffins breedable.

    Give the Sabretooth the ability to latch onto a player (and small mounts) and DRAG them away, with the drag causing damage,

    The Araneo should be able to spit webs that can be used like zip lines that eventually degrade.

    The Titanoboa should be able to wrap itself around a player and small mounts, constricting them while it bites them. The constriction will be brief, like the raptor's pounce.

    The Doedic should be able to do extra damage to a rock golem. Doedics smash rocks. The golem is made of rocks.

    it said real world dinosaur

    It might be the pterodactyl. A slightly larger version of the pteranodon. Also, there is a popular mod which features the pterodactyl. It's an aggressive flyer that can pick up players, fly them into the air, then drop them.
