Sponsored Mod Program: May Update

Recommended Posts

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!

what about us on console?

You can't(technically you can, but you shouldn't) add unfinished mods to console. None of the mods in the mod program are done yet.

Game isn't done either but it's on consoles...so yeah, you can but you shouldn't add unfinished content on consoles. Am I doing this right ?

So are these the only mods for may? or are these in addition to the april mods.This is not a very well informed update for us.

I think they were pretty specific.

This month we're adding 3 more mods into the program.

The whole mod program was supposedly a set amount of mods, to be changed if needed. So im just looking to see if this are in addition to the others already on the list, or if these 3 are replacing 3 others, and if so which ones are they replacing.

I get what you are saying. I too would like a COMPLETE list. It's probably somewhere, but I'm not quite sure where (I'll look after I make this post).

I have a feeling these were just added on, not replacing anything from April.

It is, they added them to the april list instead of making a new one. I did some searching already.

I'm glad you found the list. 

As I said before using the phrase "we are adding 3 more" is a pretty specific way of telling you that these new mods are in addition to the existing mods in the program.

While you are at it - is it possible to kick the arse of whoever is responsible for lack of updates on Prim+ that are 2-3 months overdue? It was accepted as official mod - why does it take 15 minutes to load?
