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!

NVidia Ansel Photography Contest

large.Ansel.jpg.683f020687f3fe873c17912d

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.

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 

Super Resolution!

I am curious how the Ansels are judged? There are several (in the 8x category) under honorable mentions I think are far more exciting as they have a certain level of scenery, dino quantity, and color (excluding mine for the purposes of this comment & wiping all names away to avoid any form of bias). I actually just look at the images first purely anyway and not the names, I don't want to say which ones I think fit the above since the nature of this isn't targeting anyone, but rather in an image vs image scenario, but I count at least 6 (again, excluding mine for this purpose).

Thanks for any response.
Happy 100.

Congratulations on the 100th. Couldnt miss the hundred after saying it was the last crunch for 3 times. Hope those pesky bugs get squiched at release. The server has been traveling through time for months!  

Time for ark to run stable and to shine at release! Im excited!

I think it was you who I replied to in the other Crunch? They've never said it is the last, I don't think they intend on stopping it anytime soon. They say it's the latest which means the most recent.

I am also confused about the whole X2, and I wanna have proof of this for my tribe.  No one believes me lol they think something like this would have been announce more officially like on update notes. 

Can someone just confirm this? From now on harvesting, taming, exp, maturing, hatching, gestation and mating speed is X2 (What we used to call a x2 event)  These are gonna run 24/7 on all official servers from now on?

And when there is an event it will be X2 of that? 

2x Harvesting Rate
2x Taming Rate
2x EXP Rate
2x Maturing
2x Hatching
2x Gestation
2x Faster Mating Interval Rates

Reminder: this 2x bonus is on top of the 2x rates that are now standard on our official servers!

 

Does this mean that now 2x will be forever?
