    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???????, ARK Digest 51, & Community Crunch 107!

    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 ???????

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

    ARK at TwitchCon!

    fb-image-lb.jpg

    Wildcard and ARK will have a booth at this years TwitchCon in Long Beach, California. If you're in the area and will be attending the con, we encourage you to stop by and say hi at Booth #722 on October 20th to 22th. The community team (Jat, Jen, and Cedric) as well as two of the Ragnarok developers will be present, the ARK Raptor will be there for photos, and there will also be some additional surprises!

    Xbox One X Support!

    large.593ee5fb07123_SteamARKKeyArt.jpg.5

    With the upcoming Xbox patch on October 25th we're excited to finally talk about the enhancements coming to the Xbox One X version of ARK: Survival Evolved.

    ARK on the Xbox One X will feature HDR and two graphics modes. The first is a Detailed Graphics version with 1440p resolution and Truesky (which is the equivalent to High quality on the PC) at 30fps. The second is a 1080p mode which equates to the current Xbox One graphics, with improved 60fps. The Xbox One X has increased RAM, 60-70% more RAM compared to the Xbox One, which will help to eliminate out of memory issues. It also means faster loading times and better streaming due to a faster hard-drive and the ability to cache data into RAM (coming November 7th) that will allow faster and better access to repeat files. The Xbox One X will eliminate the host tether in local splitscreen mode and will increase the tether range in non-dedicated mode. Unfortunately we were unable to remove the tether completely due to CPU limitations, but we hope that players will benefit from the increased range.

    As mentioned in our past Crunch, Xbox Play Anywhere and CrossPlay are still currently delayed until November. The reason behind this is because we believe it is critical to get BattlEye functioning on Microsoft's platform. We're very interested in the effects of CrossPlay, but we're cautious of enabling PC and Xbox Players to game together without having our anti-cheat ready, so it's going to take a little longer to get that sorted, but it will ensure a much better experience overall. 

    Rentable servers will also be available on Xbox starting on October 25th, supplied by Nitrado. Survivors who are interested in purchasing their own rentable server(s) are strongly encouraged to read the following article on the Nitrado website for further information on pricing and pre-orders:

    ARK Digest 51!

    Here is our special Aberration edition 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 Acearoni asks, "Does the premise for "Ark" come from an original idea or was it ever influenced by pop culture i.e Transformers Beast Wars? When first playing the game I instantly got that feel of Beast Wars with the futuristic skins mixed with dinosaurs."

    Quote

    In addition to a naturalist/scientific interest in biology and extinct creatures that many on the dev team share, we’ve taken influence from a huge variety of pop cultural sources, including a little bit of Beast Wars, a lot of Dinotopia and Dino Riders :) Oh, and a small indie movie from the 90’s that you might have heard of called “Jurassic Park”.

    Survivor H2OW asks, "Is there going to be another Aberration trailer as it gets closer or just the one?"

    Quote

    There will be, both an in-engine trailer, and also a sequel to the Live Action ARK “movie” ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U8Hbs0f0Ek ).

    Survivor CaseyMcLovin asks, "Will we see Tek armor for Ptero, Quetzal or any other Dino’s?"

    Quote

    You will indeed, more Tek Armors for our favorite Dinos are coming, and some of them will do different things, not just Plasma Blasters. I’m lookin’ at you, Wyvern!

    Survivor R0CKB0770M asks, "If you could tease the map that releases in spring using one word, what would it be?"

    Quote

    Epic Closure. Darn, that’s two words!

    Survivor MysticBloodWolf asks, "Will there be improved mod support for better mod loading times?"

    Quote

    We’re looking into giving Total Conversions a “Seekfree Cooking” option which will yield extremely fast load times, at the cost of larger file sizes for such TC’s.

    Survivor RaifuForLaifu asks, "What can we expect for the near future in terms of engram additions to ARK? New primitive tools? Industrial weapons? TEK Tier gadgets?"

    Quote

    There are upcoming Engrams for ALL tiers, primitive, modern, and Tek. As a hint, primitive tier is getting “Pliers” for repairing various metal items on the go, and a new method to catch and tame fish, Modern tier is getting “batteries” to power various electrical structures & items on the go, etc.

    Survivor Aligator asks, "Some games have an automatic item transport system (like conveyor belts, transport drones, hoppers etc.). Any chance we are going to see something like this in ARK?"

    Quote

    Yes, though it’s goint to be at the Tek Tier.

    Survivor Blackwolfe asks, "Are there any plans on improving the mutation system? There are several issues that I've noticed that I would wish fixed. First of all, color mutations can end up on color regions that do not exist on a specific dino. This is especially apparent on Basilos, which only have two color regions so most of the time color mutations end up on non-existant regions. Secondly mutations can end up on speed, which means the mutation is completely wasted since speed mutations do nothing except inflate the level. Third, even if two dinos with the exact same color and stat mutations are bred, the mutation count will increase despite there not being any new mutations."

    Quote

    Will fix the mutations being applied to inactive regions, and the mutations being wasted on speed! (The third point, I don’t consider an issue :)

    Survivor Mehlstaub asks, "Can we please get the blanket from the parasaur founder saddle skin in the merch store?"

    Quote

    Will ask those folks to try to make that happen!

    Survivor spoop asks, "Will there be a hitbox revamp in the future? Some creatures like dimorphs eat your arrows that never register."

    Quote

    Yes, it’s due for some tweaking in the Dino TLC pass.

    Survivor spoop asks, "Any plan to look back on some item costs? Stuff like the lance realistically should not require more metal than the industrial grill."

    Quote

    Yes, we’ll be doing a rebalance & clean-up pass, after Aberration’s release, along with the Dino TLC pass.

    Survivor Lowly asks, "Can we please have a metal tier blueprint holder/archival vault, the bookcases are very weak in a PvP setting compared to a Metal vault."

    Quote

    Yep, we’ll do it.

    Survivor Lowly asks, "What happened to the Survivor's Hat Skin? Customer support doesn't know, we had it on Xbox for completing out explorer profile in early access, then the survivor profiles where wiped and now we cant even admin spawn the hat in our single player, yet it was listed as a pre order bonus by xbox's own Larry hyrb aka major Nelson and pcgamer among other news."

    Quote

    It got wiped-out during the consolidation of assets as we unified to the builds to ship. Thank you for bringing it up here, it shall be re-added in November update!

    Survivor Exstinkt asks, "Will you ever add ark themed steam backgrounds to spice up our profiles?"

    Quote

    We will make it so.

    Survivor gaiainruin asks, "Would you consider making classic fliers an option you could check for player dedicated and single player servers?"

    Quote

    We’ll be making all the relevant values INI-and-Host-UI editable during the Dino TLC pass, so you will be able to make the Fliers handle whatever you’d like.

    Survivor BriskUhhhhh asks, "Are the smaller aberration dinos such as the frog butterfly and the Cthulhu wyveren able to sit on your shoulder? If so, will they have unique uses such as the jerboa?"

    Quote

    Some of them do indeed, and those that do, have a very special and important capability.

    Survivor Hazelnut20 asks, "Is the re-worked kibble tree system still being implemented?"

    Quote

    Yes, we plan to roll it for testing and feedback on a new “Experimental” branch during the Dino TLC pass.

    Survivor Lonestar45 asks, "Will we see any type of balancing in play for animals without saddles? I really would like to see servers full of diversity rather than Rexes, Stegos, Spinos, Gigas, and Brontos. There's a plethora of animals but some like the Direwolves could use protection. I'm not asking saddles but armor, they also can't be ridden while wearing it so I can use them as a pack hunt. Give us more strategy enabling devices. Also LOVE the community outreach. I wish more devs did so."

    Quote

    That’s a good and reasonable idea, for such dinos without saddles to have armor. Will look into how much asset work it’d take for the most important creatures.

    Survivor RowletAlex asks, "How are artifacts gonna work in aberration, since it's all a huge cave? Will we get smaller side tunnels, or will they be from element chambers, or something else entirely?"

    Quote

    There are “dungeon-like” themed caves within the overall Aberration cave networks. Also, Aberration’s not completely caves, there is a surface too!

    Survivor Grave asks, "Question for Aberration: Will there be rain on the new map?"

    Quote

    Not rain, as Aberration’s atmosphere is weak, but there are other kinds of new weather events on that ARK!

    I know y'all are busy with twitchcon this weekend and all that jazz but I pre-ordered Abberation in the hopes it would at least launch by my birthday. No solid release date is a bit irritating. Love ARK but sometimes.... -_-  Anyway, hope this gets dropped sooner rather than later. I understand if y'all can't. Would rather play something higher quality later than something low quality sooner... Just a 30-day release window... for all we know, it won't drop until Halloween... But... I digress.. Would love to play Abberation.

    Well personally I hope they launch it very, very soon. After what seems an eternity XBOX can finally rent a server and host it - catch of course being a 30% increase in costs to host over the PC & PS4 counterparts. With this in mind WC really should launch Aberration prior to PC to XBOX launch on 25th October 2017, as servers are a little more costly and not everyone has the season pass it would grant players with limited funds options to decided what map to actually launch on their rental.  We have only had Ragnarok since the beginning of the month so switching maps right now may not be everyone's cup of tea. This coupled with a rather expensive new XBOX being released in literally 3 weeks time WC have selected a particularly expensive launch month for an expansion.  For the love of God, please read this WC and place the options of where our money is going directly with us the players - naturally us season pass holders with get the expansion anyway, but as not everyone in a community is in that position should we alienate them? We live in hope I suppose that WC have considered the players along with the other high profile launches (some of which involve ARK and others that do not).

    I am pretty annoyed with WildCard. If you couldn't even get a release date ready then why  advertise the expansion at alll yet? I also think it was pretty tasteless to release a game late, and then immediately release a trailer for  an addon to the game that isn't  really completed yet. Ragnarok STILL isnt complete. DILO. Why did you release it in July for people to play on if you were ganna take so many more months to even complete the map? The bugs aren't even worked out on what parts of the map there is! I hope your way of doing things does not become the new gaming industry standard. I don't care whose fault it is, but your team that releases information jumps the gun way too much. I don't care about these mysterious dossier entries. I just want to know when the game addons will be a reality, and when Ragnarok is going to be COMPLETE. Please stop releasing things way too early. You don't seem to understand your projected dates and your teams abiliity to make those dates. Infact if you think something will be done by a certain time go ahead and tak on an extra two months so you can get your crap together and be ready before that date. I will not be suggesting your games to my friends anymore, because quite frankly you have disappointed everyone I have brought to them. The bugs, the connection issues, the lack of real information, the lack of strict information and dates, and the lack of community has made it nearly imposssible for me to bring people to this game.

    So we get to see pictures of Fear Evolved content and mention of the dev team traveling off somewhere with no clue if there is going to be any of the promised content from last year.

      Seriously WC just give a release date for the DLC if your going to leave us high and dry this year with the Fear Evolved.

      And I honestly expected better of WC, but to see the crew flying off the 20th with no word on the event or release date just ticks me off. Feels just like the big F U from last year.

    Thanks WC your the best! (At lowering our expectations!)

    I wish I could upvote this comment... I feel very deceived because Wildcard made it out to seem like they gave a poop about Fear Evolved and Raptor Claus. I will also take everything in the Q&A with a grain of salt, because they've outright lied in the Q&A before (Go look at the old Q&A's, many "yes we're going to add that" with no mention or no inclusion on the subject afterwards)

    I really do hope all the missed events means that Wildcard has been spending this time optimising so that a 6gb GTX 1060 can manage a stable 30 frames in 1440p resolution. This game has the worst optimization I've seen. ARK is the only game I own that doesn't run well in 1440p. The fact that the XB 1 X is only doing 30 FPS/1440p @ 'High' pc equivalent settings is proof of that.  30 FPS is terrible -borderline unplayable- and when it comes to ARK, 30 FPS locked is going to have dips into the low 20's in populated bases and in areas with lots of dinos.  How is this acceptable?

    Plenty of time still. Lots can happen in 14 days.

     Heard it was delayed, what a surprise. See, "I told you so"

    TBA would have been a much better time frame 

    Dissapointed but not surprised, it is Wildcard after all, get your fingers out and release something on TIME!!!!!

    I HAVE 2 IDEAS THAT YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER:

    I saw in the digest some "on the go" items, and, I thought that a cheaper, hide and fiber bandage would be useful for early game people who don't want to carry lots of meat and don't have healing brews. They can be light, and restore some health slowly over time. 

    AND MY FAVORITE: GAGS

    It would be cool and hilarious to add a cheap, hide, fiber (and thatch or even arrows if you are feeling cruel) gags to be used on multiplayer servers. They could be a thick pad tied over the mouth, or just a good old ball of cloth stuffed in the mouth. You could put them in a sleeping player's mouth, and, either distort what the player says, or just add a generic "MMFFFFF!! MMMFFFFFFFF!!!!!!" whenever the player talks. There are already handcuffs and a cage, and I think a gag would just add a great finishing touch. Would take care of loudly swearing squeakers if you are holding them hostage. I hope you consider the ideas!
