    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???????, ARK Digest 49 & Community Crunch 103!

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

    The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community! Let's get started with some news.

    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???????

    large.myserious.jpg

    What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what creature it is? 

    Xbox Play Anywhere & Rentable Servers!

    large.1920x1080.png

    We have some information to share on the Xbox Play Anywhere and Rentable Servers front. Unfortunately, due to the weather and some other unavoidable circumstances, our plans for mid-month have been slightly pushed back. Our current timeline is looking like the end of the month, but when we get closer to that we'll be able to provide you with a more specific date. We're still hard at work on all of these aspects; allowing players to rent their own PC Servers, as well as all the fun with the Windows 10 Version of the game and Crossplay between Xbox and Windows 10 Players!

    ARK Digest 48!

    Here is our question and answer session with Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, Co-Creative Director of ARK: Survival Evolved, and Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard: Jeremy "Drake" Stieglitz!

    Survivor JozaSeraf asks, “So now when titanboa's are tameable, is there possibilaty to add them some sort of turret mode? Like they only bite until target is unconscious? That way we can have pits full of snakes and drop dino's in.”

    Quote

    Yeah, we’ll add a general AI option for dinos to only attack Conscious targets.

    Survivor TranqRex asks, “You’re not able to Scorched Earth on a Player Dedicated Server unless you own the DLC. Will this be changed, as you can host on PC without.”

    Quote

    Unfortunately not, because we can’t download the necessary content files onto the game client without the player having ownership of the DLC itself.

    Survivor Hazelnut20 asks, “Could you create a 'flee' aggression status, so that if something hits your dinosaur, that it runs away, instead of standing in direct line of fire?”

    Quote

    Sure, we’ll add that -- no guarantees as to how effective it’ll be against a determined attacker, however!

    Survivor Hosscat asks, “Being an achievement hunter and enjoying some of the challenges ARK gives to obtain some of the achievements I was excited to see The Center map had its own specific achievement. Will more achievements for other maps be released, such as Scorched Earth or Ragnarok only achievements?”

    Quote

    Yes, when Ragnarok is done, we’ll add Achivements for it. Scorched Earth and Aberration will also be getting achievements.

    Survivor AbeHikura asks, “are the future expansions already decided by the team (hence the season pass) or are you guys carefully monitoring us for inspiration? Will these expansions be the same or larger than Scorched earth (content wise)?”

    Quote

    We’ve got the third Expansion in early design phase -- though much of its content is yet to be determined and will also be in response to continued feedback. Beyond that, we’ll be in continuous brainstorming mode :)

    Survivor Mendoza asks, “Have you considered any further the decision to make above ground beacon drops fully random?”

    Quote

    We’ll be adding a configuration option for this in the very near future.

    Survivor TheGamingGomer asks, “Will we get splitscreen on console player dedicated servers? My brother and our friend would like to be able to play together without having three consoles or all getting on at the same time.”

    Quote

    We can’t do it because the tethering logic is necessary for splitscreen to function properly, and the tethering logic only runs in non-dedicated mode. 

    Survivor Ulkusus asks, “Command/execute on starting ark: scan your steam achievements and update your local profile accordingly so one can get skins back after a reinstall of the game?”

    Quote

    Yes, we will do this. Probably doesn’t need to be a command-line either, can likely just run upon each startup. Will investigate ASAP.

    Survivor EternalUniverse asks, “Can we please have a respawn protection (ya'know when you respawn and you are into that animation that takes a long time to finish and then you get spawn killed by a dino?)”

    Quote

    We’ll make a respawning player not targetable by Wild Dino AI’s.

    Survivor Nightmare2772 asks, “Will Aberration feature a new plant species? Plant Species Z maybe? I like the idea of a huge carnivorous plant.”

    Quote

    It will, and it’s called Plant Species Z :-P

    Survivor KraziestKraken asks, “This is kind of a random question, but is the woman riding the raptor on the box art Helena? I've always thought so, but i'd like confirmation. “

    Quote

    As a matter of fact, she is.

    Survivor NeckRipper asks, “Will the dlc content of Aberration carry over and be usable in the other Arks like the island, center and rag?”

    Quote

    Yes, just like with Scorched Earth.

    Survivor Nch1418 asks, “First, are there plans to expand the story into the newly announced Aberration expansion and the other expansion coming in 2018? Second, will we be getting Explorer Notes from any new characters besides the six already introduced? Third, any small hints on what the 2018 DLC is going to involve or what it will be centered around (e.g. further story content, etc.)?”

    Quote

    The story continues in Aberration and reaches a climax in the third DLC, where All Is Revealed in an epic conclusion. Each Expansion introduces new characters and raises the stakes, while continuing the story of the characters who have survived previous ARKs (they might not make it out alive from subsequent ARKs though!).

    1

    Survivor Gibsy asks, “Are you guys still going ahead with the revamp of the older dinos? If so when are we likely to see it”

    Quote

    We have our design plans worked-out here for the Dino TLC pass, and it will be implemented and released this year.

    Player Procedurally Generated Maps!

    large.PGM_1_1080p.png

    The Procedurally Generated Map system allows players to make their own ARK maps by determining a myriad of landscape options from the heights of mountains, depths of valleys, and the number of lakes, rivers or oceans, to the kinds of each biome they want, and more! Let's check out the entries for this weeks contest! This week's contest winner is... Wolf Angelus!

    There were 3 potential categories for survivors to enter their shots into and they were the following:

    Three Categories

    Super Resolution: These should be taken at 8x Super Resolution. Players can optionally use Depth of Field effects accessible in Spectator mode by pressing the [Delete] key.

    It's totally a gecko-like fairy dragon with dragonfly wings, seen those in some other games before.

    Kind of annoying that someone asked a question about the achievements and mentioned the Center one, when it still doesn't work on Xbox and PS4.  Getting tired of submitting tickets, tweeting devs etc.  Would like to see a fix for that achievement before new ones are added to the game.

    Didn't really answer some important questions that are being dodged because it's proven you guys say one thing then do another without truly showing any care regardless of the community out-cry.

    O hey, my first attempt at making an Ansel shot made it in as Honourable Mention.

    The creature reminds me of this from Primeval

    Congrats @RockyXGaming I really do enjoy your videos : )

    A flying-gecko like lizard? Kinda reminds me the ones from avatar that spin n fly lol.
    Counting down the days until the new expansion! 

    I really like Ego's image that represents a explorers note. I think it would be really cool to snap screenshots depicting each note.

    Also, if the woman on the cover art is Helena, then would it be after she wrote all the explorer notes? This is also assuming that was also Helena in the live action trailer as well. I just always imagined her as more of a scientist rather than a warrior like  Mei-Yin Li, especially since Mei-Yin Li had such a strong connection to her first raptor mount, Wuzhui.

    So we now have confirmation that the woman riding the raptor was Helena. She didn't look Chinese so there was no way it would be Raptor Queen Mei-Yin.

    Right, but it was just the way she appeared with the gun and on a raptor, which leads me to believe this was after the time she met Mei-Yin. Maybe she picked up some of her skills on their travels together before they left the island. Also, and I need to go back and check the notes, but when Helena was trapped in the cage, it looked like she had long hair back then.

    @Jen @Jat Another question about play anywhere, I plan to host a private server on my computer so that me and my wife can play on without the performance issues of non-dedicated. My question is, will we still be able to play split-screen on xbox on the server, and if not will i be able to play on my PC WHILE hosting a dedicated server assuming my hardware can handle doing so?

    Right, but it was just the way she appeared with the gun and on a raptor, which leads me to believe this was after the time she met Mei-Yin. Maybe she picked up some of her skills on their travels together before they left the island. Also, and I need to go back and check the notes, but when Helena was trapped in the cage, it looked like she had long hair back then. 

    They should have had the dinos queen herself riding that T-Rex in the background, even if you can't tell it is her.

    O hey, my first attempt at making an Ansel shot made it in as Honourable Mention.

    The creature reminds me of this from Primeval

    I know right? Wouldn't it be cool if this mystery lizard actually was Coelurosauravus (the creature depicted in the photo), but mutated slightly because of Aberration's radiation? Rex takes flight once again!

    So then, if Helena is on the Utahraptor, is that Nerva on the Smilodon (sabertooth cat)? Also, is that Raia on the fire wyvern for the Scorched Earth cover art? Also, on the final cover art for the game when it was fully released, it now looks like Helena is on a Baryonyx with a bunch of random characters on other creatures in a huge battle? What could all that mean?

    Kind of annoying that someone asked a question about the achievements and mentioned the Center one, when it still doesn't work on Xbox and PS4.  Getting tired of submitting tickets, tweeting devs etc.  Would like to see a fix for that achievement before new ones are added to the game.

    Sorry about that, we'll have it fixed for the next update on both platforms.

    @Jen @Jat Another question about play anywhere, I plan to host a private server on my computer so that me and my wife can play on without the performance issues of non-dedicated. My question is, will we still be able to play split-screen on xbox on the server, and if not will i be able to play on my PC WHILE hosting a dedicated server assuming my hardware can handle doing so?

     

    This is something I believe we're still working out with Microsoft, should know an answer within the 7-10 days I imagine. I will let you know as soon as I do.

    I think that Scorched Earth takes place partly before the events described on the Island and partly after those events. Then that's where the story continues with Aberration. Just my guess. It may actually be like a side story type of thing. Sort of like a spinoff, but not if that makes any sense. Something I noticed was that there are several arks that aren't unique (e.g. there is more than one Island it seems). I wonder why that is? And which Island are we on in the game?
