im wondering if we will be able to still download anything from The island map. dedicated server

They said in the last ark digest that they would get uploads turned back on. Whether or not downloads are allowed would be up to the server owners. If it were possible to flag a dino as being 'official compatible' or something, they could probably allow data transfer from one official server to another... but it would probably have to be determined by the server itself because such a flag could probably be manipulated...

Some info to clarify a few points: Of course all the Official Mods/Maps will be free. The intent is to give back to the community and get more great ARK content integrated into the official game

Jeremy, From myself and the rest of the Valhalla team: Thank you. I have never been so close to falling out of my chair, as to when I read your post!

If only we can use the stargate mod to travel from the Island to The Center.

@TeddyBearOfDeath   If you are talking about the release date for ARK, there is a thread that has a link which states that the release date has been delayed (which would be expected, there is no way it will be ready by June) until later.  Don't remember the timeline, but I am thinking around Christmas time. 

Which I would rather it be later and all the planned ideas be finished without bugs and glitches to have people complaining.

There will still be people whining about it not being ready by June, there is no pleasing everyone though.

One of the digests also mentioned increasing stack sizes. Let's hope that comes sooner rather than later, makes inventory management so much easier and will probably reduce the strain on the servers by reducing the number of timers it has to keep track of.

This would be nice alongside the ability to remote use entire stacks, force feeding a Giga or high health creature is giving my XB1 controller a squeak lol

Very excited to see The Center being implemented into ARK. Although, I am curious to see how they will incorporate the map. The very foundation of ARK itself, or completely separate map. ?

It will be a completely different map, when you load a world you will be able to choose which save file/world you want to load. Alternatively if you play on Official servers then there will be new servers to run the new map :)

Completely agree with you. The change of map will be nice. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what else will be released onto xbox in the future.

Our entire alliance has been having a massive discussion regarding this entire mod project and how it will change the game. 

  • Should we move to a new map?
  • Should we stay because everyone else will chase the new map?
  • Will it hit PC first and then hit XBox?
  • Do we wait for them to bring Valhalla?

Maybe a democratic vote? Or dictate it, either ones good.

Why valhalla? Fair enough it's an alright map, but it's a bit ott in my opinion whilst the centre seems to be very well thought out.

It was a democratic component.  The reason for those questions were surrounded in what would be best.  If everyone leaves to chase those new maps then the "premium" areas on the map might open up allowing us to have a greater presence in an area we would like to have on the map.

As for Valhalla we all just like that map so much.  The Center map is nice and all but we just like Valhalla more.   

@EvilChaosDX I've seen conflicting reports regarding the size of the new Center map.  I've seen 20-40% do you know if that's accurate?

Both your points sound fair enough to me :)

And sorry I actually have very little knowledge on the new map and im trying to keep it that way to make exploration a bit more fun. I do know that it is definitely a good amount larger than the current map though.

Yeah I only know what I see in videos since I've only played this game on XB1.
