    We are currently working on a major update for The Center, which includes numerous fixes for visual issues, polish, level design, and bugs, such as an issue with Pyromane Breeding on servers, the inability to build in some spots around the map, and the unsupported items issue.

    Many of these fixes have been queued up in advance, but due to maintaining cross-platform compatibility and certification requirements, we had to wait to release them. Now that the release is out the door, we’ll be working on getting this patch out next week.

    “Cannot Download. 3 Unsupported Items.” - If you're experiencing this issue, we have a quick workaround available until the patch is released:

    1. Download your character from the cloud onto an Island
    2. Transfer your character directly to The Center server of your choice

    Note: This issue can occur when going via the cloud, so make sure you’re doing a direct transfer.

    We’ll be monitoring reports for new issues and solving them as they come in! And, as always, we will continue to monitor official server capacity with a view to adding new servers if needed.

    Thanks again for all your support. We hope you enjoy the new content!

    Conquest servers are being introduced to ARK: Survival Ascended by Snail Games. Conquest is a new PvP player experience for PC players which focuses on large-scale PvP while avoiding the problem of mega tribes. Increased rates will allow tribes to set up and establish themselves quickly and enable them to rebuild after potential losses instead of being wiped completely. The official Conquest servers will start on June 13th!

    If you need any support during the Conquest season, join the Conquest Enforcement's Discord.

    • 5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation)
    • 0.5x Mating Interval
    • Tribes are set to 50 players max
    • Tribe alliances are allowed

    I think im done with it you cannot compete with mega tribes that use pc that dupe and use battlenet hacks to find you anywhere on the map and have made ark there lives the game is unplayable to new players or smaller tribes these Megas are also using multiple PCs to cap the servers they took over so you cannot even attack them back.

    ps5/single player  isn’t getting any love for pride colors and didn’t for love evolved either. 

    i typed in -pridecolors and did a dino wipe same old regular colors. did a dino wipe then added pride same result. 

    did pride colors, dino wipe, quit and restart and still same old regular colors. 

    nit surprised as even with the love evo lord mod i got NOTHING but regular colors.

    I believe they meant that "lifelong game of pretend" applies more to religion (created only to control those that fear death) than it does to Pride. I don't know how you think loving someone of the same gender or not being attracted to any gender (asexual) is "pretend". Take those arguments elsewhere.

    I'm straight, and I can still understand wanting to be able to love whoever you want without risk of harm or being killed.

     

    Anyway, loving the pyromanes and dino colors!

    Happy Pride Month everyone!

    100% correct. It's funny how conservatives call gender identity "a life long game of pretend", when THEY are the ones using their imaginary sky boyfriend as an excuse to tell people what to do. Hypocrisy to an extent, but child's play to the other nonsense they babble on about (stuff I probably cant say because it involves minors).

     

    Anyway, yeah. fire Kitties are cool, and although I don't play official I can get behind these colors.

    I was more or less referring to the group of individuals who consider themselves the opposite sex of what they are. I could care less who’s attracted to whom. Guess I should have specified that from the beginning. 

     

    That doesn't make it any less hateful and bigoted.

    Hate to get in on this, but Atheism was created so people could avoid accountability for their actions(see how dumb it is when you put it that way?). And to add to the points of those other guys, if someone's entire identity revolves on their gender or sexuality that seems like a lot of pretending and charades(you can point out that my argument only applies to some LGBT people but I can say the same about any example of bad Christians or conservatives)

    Joining boss fight on Scorched Earth is so laggy. I got killed by my own wyvern because my screen was black for seconds. Another time I was killed by the boss because of lag and there were only 3 people playing on the server which including me. I have to retrain wyverns for boss again, this is super stupid.

    A scientific fact isn’t bigoted. It’s fact, truth and reality. The fact that you attempt to make the issue about religion or politics is incredibly telling because there are no facts to back up the argument. Only “you’re a bigot” or some other nonsensical argument. I’m all for loving whoever you want but having a whole class of people that want to force others to buy into unscientific, fake bs is crazy

    "Fact" or not, it IS still hateful. Also only people who ARE indeed Bigots don't find being called one "sensible", coping mechanism to fool themselves into thinking they aren't horrible people. Respect Trans people, they exist and ARE real. Don't like it? Hell is beneath your feet, go there if you're uncomfortable (Because god (Who ISN'T real) won't take you in for your hatefulness).

    Where are you getting this hate from? I've been watching y'alls debate and the most hateful things I've seen from Wildangel were "IDK about this pride garbage" and his clarification on his opinion towards trans people. YOU on the other hand have gone out of your way to insult his religion(which you have ASSUMED, real pride stuff there), insult his intelligence, and insult his political ideology(which, again, you have assumed). Plus, you have omitted any sort of evidence towards your claims, you just say "God (isn't) real". Through all that, you then have the ODASITY to call HIM a bigot?! "a person who is obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, especially one who is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group." -Oxford Languages (definition of bigot). Now then, as a class, we'll go ahead and go through that definition piece by piece analyzing who it most applies to: Wildangel or TyranntX. Let's see, "(someone) who is obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction," would you look at that? That applies to EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO HAS RESPONDED TO THIS THREAD. Next, "(someone) who is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group." Who does that fit better? The person who said that trans people are "mentally stunted crybabies"(in response to himself being called that), or the person who has repeatedly attacked a religion, the people who follow it, and an entire political party. Let me run the polls real quick and OH MY GOD!! It's a resounding 99.9% people voted the second person!!(I didn't actually run a poll, thought I would clarify that for anyone who may not be "in the know"). I do apologize for the rushed response, I would have preferred to do it in person, that way every side could defend themselves.(guess that won't happen though).

    Throwing my hat in the ring here, partially because I feel what I’ll say is pertinent and partially because I’m a jackass who wants to watch sparks fly a little longer. Pride as a concept is fine, the issue that arises is those that use it as a shield against criticism. In the case of companies it’s them using it to parade around how inclusive they are while haranguing those that don’t share their views. With the more extreme individuals I get not wanting to associate with them, but even the people that want to leave it at not wanting any identity politics from either camp in their hobbies are labeled as evil (yes yes I know, fence sitting is compliance but somehow magically only for the bad and yadda yadda). There’s also them campaigning for the good fight as a means of distracting the consumer from their more anti-consumer business practices or general incompetence. Can’t call the bad company or its practices bad because they put up the [insert group here] flag.

    Moving on from companies you’ve the individuals that use pride as a shield to keep you from calling out their blatantly predatory actions. People that can and will commit frankly heinous acts and then scurry behind the flag so the people that actually want to affect positive change will protect them while being none the wiser about the monster in their midst. Now do remember this isn’t a pride exclusive thing; this applies to any group of any color or creed: straight, lgbt, black, white, left, right, whatever. It’s important to recognize and identify these people when you see them. They are parasites that will happily destroy everything you work for their cheap and sordid pleasures. That same energy you use to disdain those you see as your “enemy” should be used excising these tumors to the body that is your movement, lest they cause more harm than can be repaired. Do not let monsters hide behind a flag. Call them out.

    A phobia is a fear. So your statement is incorrect. I’ve only stated that trans is a movement based not in facts or reality so shouldn’t be pushed onto others, not that I am scared or fearful of them.

    100% incorrect Mr. "I'm an intellectual there fore I'm always right about everything".

     

    First of "Transphobia" dispite using the term "phobia" has nothing to do with fear. its about Disliking or hatred of transexuals, which you have made very clear that you do indeed hate Trans people.

     

    Second, it's not being forced on anyone. You are being told to respect them and their feelings like you would anyone ese. You know what IS being forced on people though? F*CKING RELIGION, primarily Christianity. but does anyone bat an eye when Conservatives force religion onto others? Of course not! Because hypocrisy!

     

    Third, give up. you aren't going to win this debate. you ARE being Transphobic, period. this is FACT, and as you so BOLDLY say repeatedly, you cannot argue with facts. now unless you want the mods to show you the door (fingers crossed its for good), I suggest you knock it off and just accept that trans people exist and aren't going anywhere anytime soon. No mater what you say about your "Pretending to be something else" or "Pretend" you believe in science.

    Apparently you aren’t following the conversation very well and since I don’t agree with you, I’m “transphobic” and “hateful” Nice hateful rhetoric against Christians and conservatives tho. I’d hate to anger you anymore by disagreeing with you. I’ll be praying for you buddy. Have a nice day man. ✌🏻

    I'm agnostic, not Atheist.

    Is this a strawman?

    They were specifically talking about one group, see my post above (2nd on page).

    Bro WHAT? The shadowmane was a creature included with the genesis season pass, a pass that costed $15. That pass included 2 story maps, each with their own biomes, stories, bosses, and missions. 15 unique dinos, two new variations of creatures(X and R variants), 33 unique engrams, and even more to boot. Now, do you honestly believe that the Pyromane(reskinned Shadowmane) is worth a THIRD of everything I just listed, if you do, go back to high school and take an economics course cause you need it.

    Have not considered the fact of circumstance here? ASE was one of the top ten survival games and it still is right now more than ASA because it still has the content we are getting an upgrade for. It was popular! people paid for each map because they wanted to experience the majesty that is ark. It was profitable so wildcard said we are making money so we can sell this cheap. they are taking a gamble with this revamped version of the game. they have families to feed and bills to pay they are not just gonna give absolutely everything for free. and they had issues with snail games so they had to back track on their plans. they are gonna do what they are gonna do so you can enjoy a game, and they need to make a profit and they can't do that giving away everything for free. They added more and charged less for it. better graphics, better mechanics, NEW ENGINE, new abilities, new creatures, revamped engrams and you don't have to pay quite as much. I'm not saying its gonna be smooth sailing all the way but just back off on the Devs. plans change. and you need to also take into consideration what it takes to make a game and I'll admit there are better ways to go about it but yes, it think its worth it.

     

    Pricing comparison:

    ASE (At Release) 29.99, DLC Maps 59.99$ Genesis season pass 14.99 + 6 free custom maps with new creatures and biomes = 105.00$+

    ASA 29.99 + 14.99 for Graphical, Mechanic update and Engine update, 12 free Maps, BTT 29.99 for theme structure packs across 3 maps with new engrams including a train, blimp, cars and who knows what else totaling to possibly 75 engrams (24 for Frontier adventure not counting skins) + potentially 3 new creature with each prepaid pack (Oasisaur) 5.00 for a creature (with potentially others to come) = 80.00$+ 

    They are doing more and charging less by comparison. and they aren't greedy. you can buy ASE right now on steam for 35.00$ all content included. They are doing what they are doing now so they can keep working on the game and pay their bills.
