    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ??????? & Community Crunch 110!

    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!

    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???????

    large.torndoss.jpg.614ed4e95232983e61e90

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

    Xbox Play Anywhere!

    A small update: the Xbox Play Anywhere patch has officially entered the certification process. In addition to the Aberration update, barring any cert issues that could arise, Xbox will receive the Play Anywhere update on December 12th. This update will allow crossplay between the Windows 10 version of ARK and the Xbox version. Survivors will be able to choose to allow crossplay on their unofficial servers or non-dedicated sessions with a simple checkbox on the host menu. 

    ARK: 2x Evolution Event Weekend!

    large.EvoEvent.png

    Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It's already live now and will remain active until Monday the 4th at 12 PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:

    2x Harvesting Rate
    2x Taming Rate
    2x EXP Rate

    Community Contests!

    NVidia Ansel Photography Contest

    large.Ansel.jpg.683f020687f3fe873c17912d

    Super Resolution Version: http://images.nvidia.com/ansel/SuperResolution/ARK-SuperResolution1/ARK__Survival_Evolved_HighRes_2016_09_01_-_14_38_36_55.html

    ARK: Survival Evolved and the Scorched Earth Expansion Pack now include support for NVIDIA Ansel -- a revolutionary new way to capture in-game shots.  Compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share the screenshots in 360 via a smartphone, PC or VR headset. 

    Learn more about these features from the NVIDIA blog.

    Now let’s get to the contest!

    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.

    Panoramic 360 Stereoscopic 3D: These should be taken at 4x Super Resolution,  in 360 Stereoscopic 3D mode. We will crop them to 2D for web display, while also providing the 3D version for viewing within VR display.

    Freeform: Any settings, whacky and creative use of Ansel filters are encouraged. Adding humorous titles/captions in Photoshop is also acceptable for this category!

    And now without further ado, here are your entries!

    You're confusing me.  If you're talking about the Arkitech contest those are all a tie for first place.  There would appear to be no second place awards in the video portion of the contest this time around.

    The idea wasn't originally made by GG Fizz. I made an ARK Chessboard back in February 2016, and another person made it way back in 2015, so there's nothing original with any of these.

    Ok but still an unoriginal piece won :) And in the criterias for choosing a winner are quote "These bases are judged based upon a number of different factors such as their creativity, uniqueness, how fun of a base it is, the difficulty of building it, the functionality it provides and much more!" Hope you get my point :)

    I get your point yes, but all 3 won joint first place, so no-one has been disadvantaged here, they all get the same reward.

    Thanks for the amazing comments about the Skyscraper guys, I really enjoyed building this one. Gtz to the other winners, the galleon was a great build with no mods.  Have to say thanks to the Wildcard guys as well, the prize money has come just at the right time for xmass  :) really looking forward to Aberration.

    So I'm curious to know, with the woman in the promo art being confirmed to be Helena, who is the man? Is it Rockwell? Nerva? Or some random person in a tribe she was briefly part of?

    The Pirate ship is amazing. I hope in the future we get a Pirate waterworld type map and can have alot more ships, and water battles. Maybe add the legendary Leviathan, giant octopuss Kraken that if it latches onto ships for a long time can pull them into the depths maybe it attaches and pulls people off, add water Wyvern,Hydra, sea horse, etc. I really want a pirateship base.
