Recommended Posts

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.

Xbox One Sale!

Player Procedurally Generated Maps!

The Procedurally Generated Map system allows players to make their own ARK maps by determining 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! Let's check out the entries for this weeks contest! This week's contest winner is...

NVidia Ansel Photography Contest

Just a heads up guys, we're skipping the Ansel contest this week due to submissions expiring whilst we were at GDC. Please re-submit your entries for next week, or feel free to take new ones. The entry process is still the same, we just weren't around to collect them pre-expiration. Sorry about that! We'll be selecting extra winners next week to make up for the lost contest today :)

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.

ARKVideo!

This contest is open to all types of video be they funny, epic, scenic, stories, whatever inspires you. Just a general reminder that they should remain safe for work, think of the children!

And without further ado, the ARKVideo for Community Crunch 85 is...

Maexch3n for their Sea Castle!

We'd also like to give huge congratulations to our runner-up GEonWar!

ARKitect!

This is an award given to Survivors to celebrate the amazing structures you build. 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!

The ARKitect for Community Crunch 85 is… 

It's a three-way tie! Congratulations to;

Wolf Angelus's Creative and Fun Mazes!

Check out his full post about the submission here

This looks like a lot of fun, perhaps some Unofficial Servers may host your map and start hosting maze events. You'd make a good Events Master ;)

Lusaka6 - Play ARK even when playing ARK!

We don't get a whole lot of console entries too often but this is a great piece of ARKitect and a lot of fun too. Thanks for sharing!

Madwire - Base of Oldmad!

Looks like an enormous build, and the great use of mods make it really come to life! Fantastic :)

and we'd also like to give a shoutout to this week's runner up:

Valoule and their ARK Baby Foot!

These remind me of those custom Unreal Tournament maps, where people used to recreate giant objects and you'd just have to battle through them. Great work! But the real question is, can we actually play foosball? 9_9
