Will the current lumber structures disappear after the patch ?

Lumber structures should stay I believe, just the texture is altered.

- Removed Modern Wood Fiber Storage engram

so we will still be able to craft this even though the energram will be removed? or will it be gone entirely?

The engram is gone so it will not be craftable. It may still exist to be spawned in (although I don't think that's the case).

Can you also explain the changes to Adobe? are we going to have to make clay like S.E. also? 

Adobe will be using the same textures as the Scorched Earth textures but will use the same Primitive+ materials that it was previously using or in the very least uses Primitive+ clay recipe. If I remember correctly, they will be a new asset therefore old structures will need to be replaced with the new ones but don't quote me on that one :P

Waw that's a boatload of fixes, thanks for the update! xD This, together with the overall memory reduction promised in the global update should brighten up my day. I hope it gets released soon :)


It is released now. Should find it on Steam, if not restart Steam client.

One last question.

Have you fixed the disappearing dinos issue?

I've tamed a Quetzal to try get them from the ground, I can see the HUDs in a yellowish color below the ground. I will try to get a platform mount in any of the servers and then Im going to try this.

I have over 150 large tamed dinos below my base.

Unfortunately this patch is about 4 months overdue.  Virtually the entire prim+ crowd has left and no longer plays.  All the servers are either dead or on the verge of.

Prim+ has now been surpassed by Survival+, and will never be able to compare with it due to the lack of support from WC. (1 guy doing prim+ compared to at least 3-4 on Survival+)  That is REALLY sad, considering WC called this mod "official".  Hell, if this is the type of "support" we get for something officially endorsed by WC, ARK is in serious trouble.
