Player Procedurally Generated Maps!

large.PGM_1_1080p.png

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... Wolf Angelus!

For those wanting to make their own PGM, here's a quick start guide, as well as a very informative video from ThickFreedom!

 

NVidia Ansel Photography Contest

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.

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

With the addition of the tek cave,  will wild gigas be getting balanced? A 250 giga with acendent saddle can't even stand up to a level 15 wild giga. 

Also with the water glitch fixed, will you be reworking consumption rates so there won't be a need to use such things? People used it so they could sleep and go to work with out letting their babies die. Either reducing the consumption rates or making it so they only grow while the food bar isnt empty are both good ways to address the issue. Sucks to fill three troughs and come back to find a dino you got to juv starved.

Development of Primal Survival was put on hold.

Also, Wildcard wants to increase game price... Too bad the quality of the game does not justify it. On PS4 is around 50 dollats/euros already. I wonder if they're running out of money to finish the game.

Is there a place that I can post ideas where there is decent traffic? I created a thread a while ago with a collection of ideas I had focusing around a frozen tundra map design,  but I am not sure if it had been seen by very many people.  Do you have any tips on reaching a larger crowd within the Ark community?

Oh my gosh thank you for choosing my entry!! Also I hope I remember the E3 live stream time, but if you wouldn't mind me asking but for people who miss it will you be uploading the full video unto YouTube or something after all is said and done (sorry if it's a dumb question I don't know how these things work).

Primal Survival has been stopped development, that's the latest information we've received from Jen at least.
They might continue development after release.

Yeah. When are getting a fix? Breeding is not worth the time risk.

Congrats guys! Amped for E3! Any updates when payments will be made on previous wins? Thank you! ^^


These should have started by now, if you haven't received it yet you'll likely get it early next week when they're in again. I'll give them a nudge to remind them too.
