    Sponsored Mod Program: May Update

    Hey, Survivors!

    I'm happy to announce some exciting additions to the mod program this month!  It's been hard to keep track of all the content that is released lately! The program is already off to a healthy start, and we're already looking to add more into the group.  If you haven't heard about the sponsored mod program, it's an opportunity for modders to get some cash for doing what they love to do. As someone who plays ARK, you end up getting lots of new content to use in ARK.  It's a win-win for everyone involved! For more information be sure to check out this initial post announcing the program.

    We've been keeping an eye on the budding talent in the workshop, so be sure to get your work out there!  Your mod doesn't have to be near complete to be a part of the program.  We are always looking for those unpolished diamonds!  This month we're adding 3 more mods into the program.  Each of these mods has gained a bit of attention, and we're looking forward to seeing how they develop.

    Iso: Crystal Isles

    A quick glance at this map might let you know this isn't your typical island.  It is fantasy based, which I'm sure a lot of you will like.  It's also a welcome addition since there aren't a ton of fantasy styled maps.  I was impressed when I had the pleasure of taking a look at this map a few weeks back.  While it's still a work in progress, it's enough there to see how epic this can be.

    Auction House

    How many times have you wished there was a marketplace similar to popular MMO titles in ARK?  Well, there is!  It's amazing to see what a little creativity and some time in the development kit will do.  There's still lots of troubleshooting and testing going on, but this has the potential to be useful for a lot of ARK survivors.  You can virtually trade anything!  Wonder if we'll ever see seller ratings? ¬¬

    Advanced Rafts

    Everyone wants bigger and better ships, right?  Well, it looks like you're in luck!  Not only are there different ship models, but there are also several advancements made to the existing rafts in ARK. You might want to look into Advanced Rafts if you ever wanted a bigger building radius or more structures allowed on your raft.  There's plenty of structures and content to build the harbor of your dreams!

    Keep a look out for Workshop Wednesdays where I'll have a variety of content including a check in with the participants of the sponsored mod program.

    We'd also like to congratulate the following modders for maintaining their sponsorship and we're looking forward to what they have to show us in the next month!

    Is there any way we on console can get a guesstimation on an ETA for any of this I know these things take time and we all should be patient but we are hungry you can't dangle a juciey stake in front of a Lion and expect them not to try and get it 😋

    Really hopeful that the S+ mod pack is added to the official game. It's brilliant and a incredibly help to building bases that are not just boxs

    I like to see "Auction House" at ark. Maybe you can get access to marketplace at every tribe owned Tek-Transmitter or/and at obelisc when you absolve the mission and kill any boss easy, medium, hard - whatever. You'll unlock it. Brings more players to boss fights. ;)
