The mod preview screenshot is neat and all but it doesn’t change the fact that no one knows how well the game or even just the creature in Asa will operate until you show the damn game in action. A pretty potential tame means nothing if your consumer doesn’t know if the sheer act of moving makes it do a dying ankylo

OMG, That Deinotherium looks so good!!!! Garuga, You are doing Amazing work on your creatures!!!! It looks realistic enough that I could touch it!!! This gets me all the more excited for ASA!! If Garugas look like that, I can’t wait to see what some of the non modded creatures will look!!!!!

Any communication with the rest of the modding community would be greatly appreciated. The rest of us would love to get started modding for ASA ASAP. It kind of sucks that a select few modders have such a head start,  already having the devkit and we haven’t received any updates on when it might be available for the rest of us.

Hey just a small request. 
do you guys think we could get a unique boss for the center,Ragnarok and Valguero. Those are some of the maps that have legions of fans behind them but always feel a bit anticlimactic for me since there guardians are all repeats from other maps. 
you could make a shastasaurus boss on the center with its own underwater arena, a griffin/ gigantoraptor boss in Ragnarok and finally a deinonychus/(future C.V winner) in valguero

Very simple, hopefully WC is learning... maybe next Friday we can get a solid date? Or some actual footage? I'm kind of actually speechless surprised really

End of October AKA Halloween AKA OCT 31st.

Ha Ha - yes - this is still the UE4 devkit :):):)

Where do you see that? Plugins for UE4 can be built for UE5, so version number for the devkit doesn't mean much imo. Looks like UE5 UI to me.
