    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!

    isn't there supposed to be a Q&A, or am I just out of touch

    The Q&A bits are done through our Digests, which we mention in the title if one were to be featured.

    We're going to take the charge from the charge jug bugs, put it into our charge canteens and then DRINK THE CHARGE!!!!!!!!!!

    Wonder if we will get mutations from drinking that radioactive charge... 🤔

    I’m just happy to see new names eneterint and winning. The summer and fall same person winning month after month got old. :)

    we can now see other ideas and talents that make us dream we were so good ourselves!

    I guess im part of the name, i dont desagree with you, on one part im happy to see new builders and creation, but and the others end if we are not choose because we "post too much content" at least they need to make a rules likes one same winner every x contest. Personnaly i take atleast 15 hours to +150hours (like Thousand sunny,..) on every build i make, so thats would be cool.

    Sure when i see the chessboard that have been already make in the past im a bit confused about the contest factors. the builder surely didnt know tough

    Awesome Skyscraper too !

    Mutant bee? probably not, but when I first saw its face it looked like tek colors. Its legs also look a little...Perfect. Does this thing eat element or something?o.O Its thorax (armpits area) also looks perfect and unnatural. It could be just bioluminescent, but could it be venom glands in its hindquarters?

    I wouldn't expect one before Aberration is released at least, but that is only next week now anyway.

    Ok so is the December update being released when aberration is as can't find eta and some of the youtubers was announcing a release date of 5th which unfortunately is getting people misinformed and the anger has been directed towards wildcard which I believe is wrong so I come to ask directly and will this update include sponsored mods ?

    I only ask because unfortunately my pc isn't capable of running ark effectively and Xbox is largely lacking content for builders breeders and creative players who want to make a showcase build with friends to show their talents and achievements or to build extremely detailed structures or complexes
