Community Crunch 123: Updated TLC Dossiers & Mod Workshop #1!

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!

TLC #2 Preview - Updated Dossiers!

With TLC patch #2 just around the corner (tomorrow for PC!) we're excited to share with you the new dossiers for the 6 creatures that will be receiving changes this patch. This includes the Argentavis, Parasaur, Raptor, Sarcosuchus, Spinosaur, and Triceratops. Take a look!

Mod Workshop #1 & Tutorial Contest #2!

Hello everyone, Zen here!

This week I've got something special for the modding community. Remember when I said I was going to start bringing tutorials to the community? Well, that starts today and it's called Wildcard Workshop!

The first video is for completely new modders and those that are interested in starting. Check it out! In the next episode, we start getting into the gritty work with our first mod ;)

We've also got another modding tutorial contest! We're going to do something a bit more fun this time and look at a topic that will show an interesting way to make the game look more dynamic by having materials be affected by the time of day in-game! I expect to see some pretty interesting results from this contest.

PS4 North America Sale!

Community Contests!

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:

Four Categories

*NEW* Freestyle: These can be images or videos taken using NVIDIA's new Freestyle filters! If videos are submitted, they must have a maximum duration of one minute. 

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!

the ark video death montage is pretty much spot on for your first month of dying, just wish the raptor has proper front arms facing inwards and not down on the TLC like they should be anatomically correct for raptors but it all looks good.

Nice job on all those who submitted, good stuff in there.

"Although its movement speed is slower in a biped stance, it gains considerable attacking strength and mobility in this form."
The Spino in quad form is already one of most mobile creatures in the game, climbing rocks with ease, so what do they mean by this sentence? It becomes slower but gains mobility.

Thank you for the dev kit tutorial(s).  Both WC and Zen.  Very nice job Zen, I believe I got what you were teaching (and I barely have figured out how to turn this Alienware on).

I'll be watching all of these.  Hope you'll be touching on Blender also in future updates for creating new items, clothes, etc.

It gets a better turn radius, I think.

Dossiers look really good, but please give us S+ on console. There is no competition for us with stick tables and chairs and straw mats. I mean we don't even have a variety of furniture let alone the awesome architecture of S+.  I don't even want to waste time building anymore until it is released. How about some kind of update on this?

i have no clue if this asking to much. But it would be amazing if you guys had 2 times as the normal rate. The way it is rn is ok just its hard for any noob on pvp to acutlly make it far enough in one day then get raided the next. Plus when is orp comeing to xbox one? I think it would be nice to play on them and not worry about getting offline raided. Thank you for the aesome updates tho!
