Fear evolved... Killer turkeys... Back when events were actually events not just a week of pretty things.

Maybe you guys could finally add the Vampire/Werewolf disease transformations you had planned for Fear Evolved in 2016. I had a source tell me that you almost had it done and working well but then scr

Special perks like the increased loot quality from the Christmas event 2 years ago.

I LOVE the colored dinos. But I would also like more skins. Like I really like the skeleton costumes and bionic costumes. Wish we could have more of those. I also like when you can find more creatures that aren't usually in the area. Like Araneos and bats all over was AWESOME. Really it's all pretty fun though. I actually wish the boosted weekends rates were normal, so people wouldn't food the servers in the weekends. I also think that a lot more people might play if the clock stopped on dino food and spoiling when offline. I have almost wait official ARK so many things because that just takes away the relaxation not being able to walk away without worries for family time. If it comes down to real life or the game I will pick real life. Just an idea.

Seriously, this game is exceptional. You all do a great job. But see, it's important to listen to your community, without which the game could die. When you made the game suggestions, it was perfect. We finally said things have long been going to logically be voted in numbers, and you could not let them down to do anything else instead. For example, compared to events, skins, dino color, ok that's cool. But it takes time, the energy of money, and each time it takes a patch that patch patch event, and sometimes we take the event half. So when you say you will not do, for example, Ascension on Scorched earth because it will take time, months, a lot of resources. I do not understand. You already do it with other things, in the games suggestions I did not see in the top20, that people were asking for news skin, news event, color dino. I saw the ascension on scorched earth with 65 votes, very important in terms of rates. I also see that people want us to add the items of primitiv + on the original retaining the original, a great idea, again you have already said no. It's sad. What I do not understand is that the acsension, certainly would take time, but little that many people would buy scorched earth (which is of no interest at present as everything is in ragnarock for free). Therefore, more people in PVE, in PVP again, everyone would like to test this new latest boss, and this logical climb to go on abbement. In short I love your game, well done but be careful you offer games suggestions respect at least a few. hoping that one of you will read me, and be able to answer me.

sorry for my bad english iam french.


Please revive " SURVIVAL of the fittest, battle royal, on PC, but PS4 ( for exemple you work hard on this and you propose 10e, BUT woth the original game, biim new people buy the game, and money money for WILDCARD no? i said 10e maybe 25e like a DLC special battle royal. for me PS4, i buy this.
Ascension ? i buy scorched earth, so MONEY for wildcard again. Event? color? dont buy more thing haha, so work but no money, ascension? work but money. (I said this because you answer about that its impossible, prefer other content, BUUUUUT people (65) said they want TTHIS content haha. thanks again sorry!! peace everybody

Please bring back DODOREX, Xmas 2016 or 17 can't remember was awesome, Our whole server worked together getting all the Coal and we all took turns using the DODOREX. Some of the most fun i have ever had in Ark, Since then i have made new Friends and every Event i talk to them about how awesome it would be if they added the DODOREX so we can all have fun with it again.

I've been making event mods for quite a while.

People generally want:

  • To decorate their bases (without grinding for materials -- the first Christmas forced everybody to fight for Santa drops for days, just to build a single Christmas tree)
  • Fight new monsters (Dodo Rex, Dodo Wyvern, Zombie Dodos, etc)
  • New ways to get cool loot (Santa drops, etc)
  • New dinos and new items, such as Flying Brooms during Halloween (like I've done in ARK Hallows Eve, etc)


Feel free to look through my mods for ideas.   I submitted these for sponsorship, but there didn't seem to be any interest for some reason.

ARK Hallows Eve:  https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1167006915

  • Dynamically generated Graveyards which have:
    • Erie smoke clouds with custom suspense music
    • Randomly generated gravestones that can be searched, revealing a custom skeleton monster or an admin-configurable loot chest.
  • Flying Brooms
    • Multiple types
    • User-configurable Glowbugs that flutter around the broom, to make it easy to find at night
    • Can fish while on the broom
    • Speed and flight/ground abilities are fully admin configurable
    • Can be picked up and carried in inventory after you land
  • Skeleton Costumes for Players
  • Candy Baskets (Randomly gives "Trick" or "Treat" candies.  Tricks make you do something silly, and Treats give you buffs)
  • All the holiday skins/decorations that are fully resizable
  • Clown Balloons that pop when you hit hard objects.   Can be used to apply Torpor to teammates, so you can put on a clown mask and jump your friends  ?
  • Custom music player for the Fear Evolved theme music
  • etc, etc

Autumn Feast:  https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1207997302

  • Added wild Turkey spawns.   Turkeys are tamable and breedable.
  • Build the special "Double Barreled Poultry Pulverizer" (shotgun) to hunt birds
    • Insta-gibs Argents, Terror-Birds, Dodos, and Turkeys
    • When a bird is shot with the gun, no XP is given, the bird explodes in a poof of features, and it drops a custom "Bird Carcass"
    • Pluck the Bird Carcass for Feathers (used to craft skins, such as the Chieftain hat)
  • Deep Fryer
    • Placed plucked bird carcasses in the fryer, along with veggies, and craft Autumn Feasts!
    • Autumn Feasts can be placed on tables, and contain a certain number of Servings based on the size of the bird used
  • Players can place plates on tables, and clicking a plate will pull a Serving from a nearby feast.   Clicking the plate again will eat the Serving.
  • Eating Autumn Feasts gives you a "Stuffed - Digesting!" buff, which slowly gives the player food/water over time as they digest.  It also increases their insulation stat slightly, because they're fat now.  xD

Holiday Delight:  https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=822564503

  • Added all of the Winter Wonderland decorations back into the game, and added some new ones.
  • Players can build and sit on a custom Santa Sleigh for fun/screenshots
  • Custom music player (Holiday Delight Wreath) plays the WInter Wonderland music
  • The Snowman has been overhauled to produce snow in the area, and all of his sockets have been overhauled to allow every helmet in the game to snap to his head.
  • Holiday Stockings have been fixed to allow player names
  • The gift-wrap present has been updated/fixed, and now include custom sounds/effects when opened
  • etc, etc



This guy need some love. These are cool ideas and with the proper dedication can easily be implemented in the game with the current staff wildcard has.

The themes, but since you removed them a long time ago, not sure anyone else knows what that means.


Your current idea of "theme" is a wallpaper, colored dinos and boosted rates. How is that a theme? Bring the actual themes back. I miss graveyards for Halloween ? that kind of stuff added tons of enjoyment to the game. Right now events are just a way to farm stuff faster. Anyone who joined Ark after you removed the themes will not have any idea, so will just probably post "boosted rates!" since that is all they know.

I went with unique items, because the Dino saddle skins aren't unique when they are also tied to achievements or progress.

I like the unique archaeology Dino skins but how many of those can you guys really do? Not that many before you run out of creatures.

I like the colours that are super difficult to get through mutations but the game has been out a year and a half and 48 dragongreen3 still hasn't been in a n event nor has 44 draginfire

So I went with unique items as in the placeable base decorations but I dislike how they go away after the events, as a role play style Pve player I dislike how I cannot keep a Christmas grotto and a Halloween churchyard all year round

I would love unique item skins either from events or just in general, the Easter bunny club skin was nice but I'd prefer more permanent additions to weapon and tool skins then just a special event
