Community Crunch 141: Special Colored Dinos Ending Tomorrow & Xbox Sale!


Recommended Posts

Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

Special Colored Dinos Ending Tomorrow!


Here's just a quick reminder that the week of purple, black, grey, and dark blue creatures on the ARKs ends tomorrow. Be sure to get your taming done while you still can! The colored dinos will stop spawning after a server redeployment tomorrow at 1pm EST. We've really enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful tames on Twitter so keep tweeting them to us!

Mod Community Updates!

I've gotten a really good number of tutorial requests this month for potential bounties! Thank you, everyone. I'll be choosing which ones get turned into bounties at the end of the month.

Don't worry if your particular request doesn't make the cut this month, any requests that don't get made into bounties will remain on the request list. To that end please make sure that if you are interested in seeing tutorials for any of the requests that have been made, or if you still haven't added your own request, that you visit the bounty request form and submit it. I make the determination of which requests become bounties based on their demand.

We also have a new mod tutorial ready for you today! We're looking at Blueprint interfaces and their magical properties. Seriously, these things are so useful to mod authors it's scary how overlooked they are. We're starting to get into some very useful, but possibly abstract, information. If you find you have any questions, please ask in the thread and I will do my best to fill in any gaps.

At 1pm Eastern on July 25th we will be taking down some of our NA servers for maintenance on PS4 and Xbox. Check the post below to see which servers will be affected:

Please give us at least a command to continue this event a week or two more. On my server we don't have much time to play since we all are working at week and have only weekends free + this heatwave in Finland has this "great" side effect that people are too tired to play! We like these colors and want to keep up with them a little longer!

always the same events?

Would you rather no event? I can't say this enough. There used to be a time back in the old days of ark where there was no such thing as a evolution event. And in that time harvesting, taming, and xp were half the value. Go to a single player game and set the harvest and taming to 0.5 and see what the days of old were like. A time when a 150 rex took almost 4 hours or a rock golam took almost a day and a half on sulfer.


Enjoy the same old events. One day they may disappear altogether.

I would trade all the Crunches and Events in the world just to get some technical support on Xbox. All this talk of the next DLC, contests, and events, and all, but the game is falling apart at the seams on Xbox. Just look at the forums. People who’ve bought and paid for the product are getting no response to their service tickets and a big F U in the form of absolute silence. I don’t know what the Wildcard 35 person staff is doing with all their profits.
