Non-primitive items have been removed from Scorched Earth and Aberration drops, and the Hazard Suit has been added to the Advanced Workbend (in Aberration). These changes now allow for a Primitive Plus experience on both of ARK's expansion packs!

Please add back permanent amount of mind wipes. Also can you please make it to where when you make it to a drop everything you are carrying and the one dino you are riding can all transfer servers together? It would balance against tyrant corporations, i mean Tyrant Alphas wiping solo players or those shund, and would keep people from stop playing since they have to start from scratch over and over n over n over.
