Primitive+ Developers Blog!

Hey fellow survivors!

We are getting close to the official launch of Primitive+ and I thought it would be a good time to go over what Primitive+ is and what you can expect to find in it.  The total conversion won’t be much of a change for those who already survive primitively, but for those who are used to more modern things like electricity will be in for quite a change!  Everyone’s vision of what ‘primitive’ is can differ.  Because of this, it’s probably best to say that primitive in this case means no electricity.  While Primitive+ is primitive in nature, it’s not like ‘stone age’ primitive.  The premise of the mod is “What would ARK look like if we took our current knowledge and the resources provided to try and survive”.  While things like electricity and AC might not be realistic in this scenario, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have some luxuries while surviving in the primitive lifestyle.

large.windmill.jpg.4efc5d75a9064f184c1d7

Primitive+ takes away modern conveniences and leaves you to survive the way that many people did for years, and still live to this day.  There is no electric or anything that might require electric (AC, Fabricator, etc).  Although some of those modern conveniences are gone, I’ve given you a lot more content to fulfill your adventures on the island.  You will find that most of the content fits nicely with roleplaying or PVE experiences.  For those that prefer PVP, there’s content in there for you too!  For PVP’ers I’ve added more weapons and different ways of raiding bases and fulfilling your PVP desires.  You might find that the barrel of gunpowder has some detrimental effects and is highly temperamental.  Maybe you prefer to take a battleaxe into your fight.  Maybe you prefer ranged damage and opt for the longbow, musket, or flintlock pistol.  No matter how you choose to engage your foes, there should be an option for you in Primitive+.

large.plants.jpg.24b1a027f02da612be31006

In addition to the PVP content that’s been added, there’s tons of contents for those who want to simply enjoy their time on the island and make the best of it.  You might prefer to be a master chef with the different consumables and crops that Primitive+ has to offer.  If that doesn’t suit your play-style, you might prefer to become a merchant and set up a market with market stalls for trading.  The goal of Primitive+ will always be to expand upon the content that ARK already provides so you will find that Primitive+ isn’t a lot different than the core game.  It diversifies the core resources to allow for a more immersive and personable experience.  I mean who doesn’t want to send mail to friends using the in-game mailing system in Primitive+!?  You could even invite them over for dinner and cook a meal.

large.boat.jpg.797c86c087bee0683c63eda37

There are dozens of new resources to collect including an additional 11 crop seeds that you will be able to plant and grow.  Primitive + adds 230 different items that are not in the core game which includes 3 new building tiers (lumber, cement/brick, and adobe).  Since metal structures are not a thing in Primitive+, cement and brick offer the highest line of defense against raiders.

large.musket.jpg.e55740e311479b3bec630cd

There are certain things that didn’t make the cut for the initial release that I plan on expanding upon in further updates.  Primitive+ will receive future updates and content as the core game matures and adds more features.  I hope you are excited for the future of Primitive+, because this is just the beginning!!!!!

large.fishingbasket.jpg.5a1c9abe5fe59f47

A special thanks for all the testers that have been helping me get this squeaky clean before release.  That’s not to say there won’t be some minor issues, but nothing game-breaking.  Get ready to live off the land!

- Ced

So many amazing talented people!   Congrats to the winners!

I am so excited about Primitive Plus becoming an official DLC.  Congratulations Cedric! Thank you for doing such an amazing job.  :Torpor:

Congratulations to eco, Wolf, and Nakedzombo!  Nicely done and well deserved all.

All of the new content Cedric made for Primitive + looks amazing.  While I don't think the primitive lifestyle would work well for my projects in the foreseeable future, I'm dying to get my hands on many of the new items it contains.

So I'm casting a yearning eye in the direction of our modding community.  Ranger needs to be able to build in Adobe and plant wheat (or at least "look" like I planted wheat) in the near future.

^ ^ i hope my Irritator is good enough , i like the spinoaurus and many people hate the new 4 legged spinosaurus. Than i have make a Spinosauruid for these people "Irritator". The irritator Walk on 2 legs and have a Sail on his back  .  Yes the Irritator is not so big like an Spinosaurus but thats no matter i think.

You're wrong. I love both the crunch and digest. They both keep the community involved.

I agree. It's annoying when others feel they should speak on behalf of other people!

I too like the crunches, but I'd like to see what was going to happen for the future of the game in digests.

I wasn't trying to speak for others, hence why I said "think"

The thing is all you needed to do was say you would rather have a digest. Why say what you think others would want when you don't know what they want? What is important is what you want.

It's better to have had the Crunch and no Digest than not have anything at all. It's just unfortunate that Jeremy wasn't available for this weeks digest.

I guess that's true.

I never said that I hated the cruch, it's just that I like Digests more.

Well, I had hopes that I would at least place this time around, but I think that perhaps doing a parody of the Jonny Quest intro ARK style might pre-date a lot of my viewers... and possibly a fair few members of the community team.  LOL!

Or perhaps using a version of the actual theme from the show made them a bit nervous.

Or (and this is perhaps more likely) I missed the comedy/nostalgia mark that I was trying to hit entirely.

Either way I can't fault their final choice in the slightest, it was extremely well done.
