    ARK: Fear Evolved 2 on Xbox One, Community Crunch 69, Evolution Event & More

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

    Digest will be edited in a little later! ;)

    Fear Evolved 2!

    Fear Evolved 2 will be making it's debut on the Xbox One early next week!

    large.581360548a37f_DontLookBehindYou.jpg

    It's very clear that you guys are incredibly passionate about the game and love it to bits. We apologise about our poor scheduling and it was really unforeseen circumstances that prevented the initial release but we are going to work hard to get it out to you as soon as possible, even if it comes slightly after Halloween!  A lot of members on the team are going to be working pretty much non-stop over the next few days to get this ready! It should have been something we planned for, but alas did not - however we do listen to your concerns and this is clearly a mistake we need to learn from and get better at it. We apologise for the disappointment and we hope that you will enjoy the Fear Evolved content once it reaches console in a few days! 

    And yes, the event will run for its full duration to make up for the missed time! :)

    Player Procedurally Generated Maps!

    large.PGM_1_1080p.png

    Last week we were excited to reveal one our latest experimental features, the Procedurally Generated Map system (PGM). PGMs would allow players to determine 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! 

    We decided to open up the system with a little contest, players were encouraged to play around with the new tool and see what kind of awesome maps that they could create, for a chance to win a 100$ Steam Giftcard. We had a number of entries, and over the past week throughout all of social media we've seen a lot of great, hilarious, and some mind-boggling maps generated. Without further ado, let's get to announcing the winners of the first contest!

    It's a tie!

    EXFIB0 has personally advised you might want to tweak the tree density a bit ;)

    So congratulations to the two of you, these are some fantastic maps indeed. Though that's not all, a lot of survivors have been playing around with the system and we've got some other cool maps we'd like to shout out for an honourable mention - I'll be in touch to make sure you guys get a little prize too! :Jerblove:

    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 a 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 in 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’ll want to click on the image title to be able to download the maximum size image, we’ve resized them for display purposes ;)

    It was my understanding that people set their turrets to players only so you can't simply drop an unridden turtle to drain. When at least some are on players only you force them to put themselves more at risk. And the turrets line of fire sometime intersect with the players causing them to get shot off which is where the myth probably got started?

    OOOO one more thing about turrets. What's the deal with plants only doing 0 damage to golems?! Kind of makes things even worse for the small tribe :/

    I'll believe it when I see it. 

    Is Primitive + getting it? Are we going to see it on the Center?

    TYVM it was a huge huge let down getting the rug pulled out of from under us on the day of the event. Also, if it comes up in the future, lead with the bad news first rather than making all the xbox players read through the stuff they thought they were getting only to be told it's not for them at the end.

    Thanks for listening to your fans. I don't care too much about the delay as long as we still get the event as promised. The only thing I'm still concerned about is the werewolves and vampires not being part of the event like it was promised. These features would really make up for the delay so you should consider getting them finished for next week.

    What is the status of tamable boas? Will they make it during delayed Fear Evolved 2 for Xbox One? Now your core funders are back, it would be nice to release tamable snakes this year. Or at least in next content update. You had entire year to make them tamable.

    Thanks!

    For the diggest could there be a option to delete maps instead of deleting data?

    Also fix the text typing on the xbox one with black controllers? This may sound odd but I have to use another controller that is signed in to another account (controller has to be different like blue wired) I would love to see this get fixed

    do you have to apply to be featured somehow or do they just look for stuff. Because I think my SOTF tribe flag is worthy to be featured, now that it has been out for 1/2 a year or so ;) maybe the devs didn't see it, you can find it under guides for SOTF (it should be spot #1)
