Community Crunch 417: LiveOps Update, Modded Server Transfers, and More!

Recommended Posts


The sun's out, and so is our much-anticipated Summer Bash! Our Sarco's are on, and the grill is fired up, so come and join us in the celebration that runs until July 17th. With a beach-themed Club ARK, a new activity, and fresh new skins, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

Transfers on The Center Official servers will open at 10am PST/1pm EST July 26th allowing players to move items, creatures, and characters onto the map without restriction! Get your Fasolasuchus ready to explore the majestic Red Woods!



It goes without saying that supporting modders is a very integral part of ASA’s development. A lot of the work we’ve been doing has been functionality based by providing more power to UGC creators in the Devkit itself, however we’ve also been working on some improvements at a platform level!

We've made significant improvements to our moderation methods with pipeline improvements, as well as increasing our moderation capacity. As a result, Cross-Platform mods can expect a maximum moderation time of 24 hours from submission (earlier in most cases). Reminder that PC-only mods are not affected by this level of moderation, and are instead published immediately.

We’re also working on some cooking pipeline improvements so that mods can get cooked faster and we’re hoping to roll that out in the weeks ahead, and the team is hard at work on delivering the previously mentioned Unrestricted Premium Mod system.


Expire Servers Reminder.png  

On April 8th, we deployed a new type of server across the network (for the various game types) that we refer to as "Expire" (which is what you can search for in the session filter). 

These servers will be online until 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on August 3rd. We're preemptively using our allocation for Aberration to host some additional sessions that players can travel onto to farm, tame, and experience The Center Gameplay. The same transfer restrictions apply in that you are only able to download your character, but you can freely take anything off. This is to help reduce load off some of the other servers, or provide players an option for those who just want to jump onto The Center temporarily.

Please note that these servers will no longer exist after 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on August 3rd, so if you intend to use them, remember to transfer your items/creatures/characters off before that date, as nothing will be saved beyond that time period.


Official Modded Server Transfers_.png

Transfers are coming to the Official Modded Servers! From Wednesday 17th July, 10am PST/1pm EST, players can move items, creatures, and characters between a set of modded maps. The servers will be merged to create clusters, two to be exact, and these clusters contain the group of servers players can travel between. A list of the servers on each cluster can be found below.

It’s important to note that anything left in uploads on the Official Modded Servers will be lost if you don’t download what you want to keep before next Wednesday, and any content that is exclusive to a mod/specific mod server cannot transfer to another one. For example, a creature that is exclusive or specific to Svartalfheim cannot be transferred to a different map.

Hey WC, where are the colors?

Im looking for a actual black wyvern since the event startetd and have not seen any ... not one region

wyvern spawn is much to low in event times, sometimes you fly half an hour trough the scar and not see one wyvern.

And pls make the event color spawn higher for all ceatures its a pain to get colors together...

Unplayable game, after your last update the game is freezing. I didnt have that problem before. Fix it, its unbearable.. 

I also have been unable to play since the last update.  I am on XBox S and can't get the game to load.  I have been playing for many years and am becoming  very irritated with this whole thing.  ASA is an experiment that I am just about to walk away from.  Not looking to start and argument just becoming frustrated that I can't load my game.  I wish instead of giving us the Power Rangers they would simply fix the game.
