Hello Survivors,

Welcome to your latest edition of the Community Crunch and Digest 41!

ARK Digest 41

Here is our question and answer session with Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, Co-Creative Director of ARK: Survival Evolved, and Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard: Jeremy "Drake" Stieglitz!

Survivor, psychosaurus409 asks, “so the tlc patch... whats that mean for the old Sarcosuchus?”

Quote

 

In the Sarco’s case, TLC pass will mean that its thick durable hide will render it highly resistant to blunt attacks, while its strong bite will cause temporary injury. It’ll also regenerate health more quickly when in the water.

 

 

Survivor, ImpureFrost asks, “With the kaprosuchus, will it actually ambush? And Will the Kaprosuchus have a disguise feature like the rock elemental in scorched earth?”

Quote

The Kapro will actually ambush and grab you, but no it won’t have a “diguise” feature ;)

1

Survivor, zForgottenAngel asks, “Any plans on adding more Wyvern types? Like ice, or I saw one person suggest oil and I think that would be kinda neat. Water would be a good addition I think, too.”

Quote

I think that would be best left to Mods, now that we’ve released the ScorchedEarth assets in the ARK Dev Kit ;)

 

Survivor, zForgottenAngel asks, “Will mutations maybe introduce (eventually) size differences in some dinos? Like some grow up bigger or be a runt (especially in cases of twins or triplets)? There's all sorts of very large skeletons lying around and I personally would love to ride on a Rex that big.”

Quote

The main reason we don’t have dino size variation in ride-able dinos is because the saddles wouldn’t fit the players properly then. However, we’ll consider it for non-rideable dinos...

1

Survivor, deadmentellno asks, “can you please add a server option to allow you to breed wyverns”

Quote

I think a Mod could make that change very easily, in fact I suspect there are already is such a Mod!

1

Survivor, Trappel22 asks, “For the procedurelly generated arks: how exactly are we going to have influence on them? Are we going to be able to choose what biomes we want on our ark or how many caves? And are those arks going to be completely infinite? Because I would wonder where to place the 3 obelisks then? Would be nice to get some deeper look into that nice system of procedurelly generated arks as they're going to drop next patch”

Quote

Initially you’ll be able to change a bunch of the randomization values, but over time we’ll give more intuitive control such as selecting from specific desired biomes. The ARK’s themselves will not be infinitely sized -- think of them as randomly-generated regular ARK’s -- but there will be infinite variations.

1

Survivor, Trappel22 asks, “With the rock elemental are we going to see some more "elementals" ? Maybe a water/fire one?”

Quote

A ‘Water Elemental’ probably would not be appropriate for Scorched Earth specifically… but I suspect a Modder can have fun with that concept.

 

Survivor, Bacon8RColby asks, “Right now it is pretty difficult to see the UI and small details in Splitscreen even with the new resolution update.  In addition to that I also feel that because of additional on screen items such as text remove some of the vertical space leaving us with what feels like this very narrow squinty experience. My thought was to give an option to switch between a horizontal and vertical split screen experience.  That way if there are people that like how it is can keep it that way but others like myself and my wife can switch it to vertical and enjoy the game better that way.  I also feel like this would fit better with your current crafting/inventory UI without having to do a major overhaul on that.  I hope you consider this one!”

Quote

Yeah, we’ll add the option for vertical split soon.

 

Survivor, Squidge Meister asks, “Any chance of us seeing a few more alpha variations on Scorched Earth, such as an Alpha Mantis that can fly? If you're feelin' sadistic, an Alpha Vulture would be tortuous.”

Quote

Yeah we’ll likely be adding a few more ScorchedEarth Alphas in the near-future.

1

Survivor, DrakeHunter asks, “Again with the recently released Bee Dossier, with it's methods of taming the bee involving the queen herself does this mean it might offer future possibilities for taming another hive-minded insect, the Titanomyra by simply taming the Queen Titanomyra to be able to use her Drones and Soldiers at the players will?”

Quote

Yes if the Bee goes well, we’ll implement a similar approach for other hive-minded creatures.

 

Survivor, Leika asks, “Is there any plans to updated/add to the players animations/emotes and sounds? For a game with such amazing dino animations the players are so comical. Would love it if my chick didn't sound like a dude most of the time lol.”

Quote

Yes, many of the player animations and sounds need reworking before release -- the priority as yet has been on the creatures but they will be getting a pass.

 

Survivor, BreakMeDown4 asks, “What kind of implementations do you see being made to diseases? Can we expect them to play a much more prevalent role once they're completely mapped out in the final version of the game?”

Quote

We’re looking at more temperature and environmental dependent diseases, along with of course a server-option to control permanence & contagiousness.

1

Survivor, Cataclisto asks, “Can you add messages to tribe logs with information about uploads? Example: Bob uploaded tame "Mothy - lvl 100" (lymantria)!”

Quote

Yep, we’ll add that in v248!

 

Survivor, Mendoza asks, “Can we get the ability to make .PNT painting files into blueprints for sharing with other players in game?”

Quote

Not directly in-game, but what we may do is add Steam Workshop support for PNT files. We’ll be looking into that shortly.

 

Survivor, Mendoza asks, “Can we get the Ambient Sounds having it's own volume slider separate from the SFX volume slider?  I'd like to be able to more clearly hear the environmental sounds like the ocean or wind ect, but not hear loud swings from my axe or dinos. Could we also get a separate volume slider for dino footsteps so I can better hear large predator dinos like the silent T-Rex?”

Quote

Yes, we’ll get Ambient Sounds separated into their own group with a slider.

 

Survivor, Lowly asks, “When is crafting efficiency going to equate to random chance at crafting higher grade items, I can have 500% crafting efficiency and still only make 100% default items like torches”

Quote

Aye, we will indeed make Crafting Skill apply a resultant-item quality output increase. We’ll experiment with this for v248 and see if it feels good to release then.

 

Survivor, RandChaos asks, “Power on Scorched Earth greatly limits viable build locations, not because of refrigerators but because of high tech gadgets such as the chemistry table needing to be powered to run. Given that it is a desert environment, an official Solar Panel that works only during the day (excluding times when there are storms) would be great. Combined with the Wind Turbines for night power would greatly help the power situation while still keeping the spirit of power being imperfect alive. Any chance of this happening?”

Quote

Solar Panels WILL be a thing, ultimately!

 

Survivor, Lowly asks, “Can you rework the training dummy, so it can hold any armor and any saddle, so we can see in game numbers of how an apprentice rex saddle reduces incoming damage compared to primitive.”

Quote

Yes, a rework of the training dummy along those lines is planned.

 

Survivor, Doublee313 asks, “Can you please confirm that we are able to use the difficulty mods on The Center? This has been a quite popular question since we love these difficulty mods, but were told it's hard coded for The Center. Can you confirm this is still hard coded or fixed so we can use these mods and set the DiffilcultyOffset to 1.0? This gives us the options to make the server low/medium/hard and it works great on The Island.”

Quote

TheCenter should not have any hardcoded difficulty anymore, difficulty mods should work on it.

 

Survivor, Ike24 asks, “Will you make fire wyverns the secondary spawn in the dragon arena instead of ptreras and dimorphs?”

Quote

Nope! But we will tone down those OP Ptera’s there..

2

Survivor, Scriffignano asks, “Can we get an option to have flyers follow us and stay grounded? I'm getting tired of chasing birds all the time.”

Quote

Sure, we’ll add that option.

 

Survivor, DinoHunterExtreme asks, “Could you please give the new items ID numbers? Having to type the blueprint path of a new item is a huge hassle just to spawn it. (And if you play on Xbox sometimes items blueprints have "illegal characters so that hour long command just disappears ex. bone")”

Quote

Yeah, we’ll go ahead and get that done in a near-term upcoming update.

 

Survivor, TEM187 asks, “A while back you gave us the Dire wolf, and just recently you released Allosaurus. Since the Allo has the pack-boost, when could we plan on seeing the Dire wolf get this boost as well?”

Quote

Yes, the Dire Wolf will be getting similar capability in the upcoming classic-dino TLC pass.

 

Survivor, Poseidon888 asks, “would you consider adding a "general" kibble that wouldn't require eggs at all but would be more effective than prime meat and less effective than their preferred kibble? Perhaps one for carnivores and one for herbivores”

Quote

We might well ;)

 

ARK: Evolution Event PART TWO!

Note for those reading after the Digest edition, this event is now over ;).

large.EvoEvent.png.eeb58694dd9d4cb1e3459

After the massive feedback we received in support of Evolution Events, we’ve decided to run another! And it’s live NOW! 

Through the weekend the Official ARK Network will be affected by an Evolution Event! Survivors playing this weekend will get to experience the following bonuses:

2x Harvesting Rate

2x Taming Rate

2x EXP Rate

So be sure to log in and enjoy the increased rates whilst you can! We're considering running these fairly frequently, perhaps every weekend or every other weekend - with some variation of course. Please continue giving us your feedback and let us know what other Evolution Events you'd like to see! :) How about some Harvest Famine? :P

ARK: SotF - September Survivor League Championship!

large.SL-On-Smoke.png.1b05b3fe3cdd00b1bf

The ARK: Survival of the Fittest September Survivor League Championship matches will take place from 11 am EST to 2 pm EST on Saturday, 8th of October, with a bounty of more than $65,000 in prizes to the winners! 

The Survivors who have qualified for the event are listed here: 

https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/survivor-league/

The championship games will be shout casted by typeForced! We invite all ARK fans, and the newly curious, to come watch the epic battles at that time on our Twitch channel: 

https://www.twitch.tv/survivetheark

To those competing: may fortune smile upon you, brave Survivors! And may the fittest survivor be victorious! 

Hope we have an awesome Championship and get to see some great games! 

ARK: SotF - Last Man Standing!

1475783768_bleh.png

Studio Wildcard is also sponsoring a second tournament this weekend. The tournament will be run using a Survival of the Fittest mod created by community member Katti. 

The event will be streamed on Twitch on Sunday, October 9th 2016 at 11am EST by Davnell: https://www.twitch.tv/davnell

Different than the Survivor League, Last Man Standing uses tribes of 5 and will consist of three 1.5 hour matches where points are awarded for tribe survival placement (10 points for 1st, descending by 1 point for each successive position, 0 points for 11th place and below). The highest points accumulated points at the end of the three matches wins!

You can subscribe to the mod here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=774369391

Prize Pool:
1st place: 2500 USD (5x500 USD) 
2nd Place: 1250 USD (5x250 USD) 
3rd Place: 750 USD (5x150 USD) 
4th Place: 500 USD Steam gift cards (5x100 USD cards) 
5th Place: Scorched Earth keys (x5) 

It's going to be a fun-filled weekend, so be sure to tune in Saturday and Sunday to see these tournaments play out.

ARK: SotF - Naughty or Nice!

large.579f8445d9a42_NaughtyandNice.jpg.3

The special SotF Gamemode known as Naughty or Nice made its official return as a new Total Conversion last Saturday! 

We put the best survivors to the test in an epic 100 versus 100 battle over the course of 2 and a half hours. 

If you haven’t had a chance to watch the game, you can do so here and check out the awesome finale:

https://www.twitch.tv/survivetheark/v/91126873

As for how the game ended…

SPOILER WARNING

Congratulations to Team Naughty, what a turnaround it was! As this was a charity event, Studio Wildcard will be donating a total of $10,000 to five charities selected by the winners. The winning team will also be awarded 100$ Steam Gift Cards for their efforts [and they’re on the way, just waiting for Valve’s delivery ;)].

It’s now available as a Public Total Conversion, so check it out here!

ARK Imzy Community!

Say hello to the Imzysaurus!

NjMaTsc.jpg

Epic-fanmade content created by ARK Imzy Community member domtheduck

Imzy is a relatively new social platform made for Communities and pretty much since it's inception we've had a growing ARK Community there! Just like any other of our social platforms (Reddit, Facebook, Twitter & YouTube) by actively encouraging discussion and hosting contests! It's a great place to meet other ARK players, for content creators and they promote really strong Community Values!

If you'd like to join the ARK Imzy, just head over to www.imzy.com/ark where you can request an invite to our verified group! The invites get distributed VERY fast, so don't worry! We'll be working alongside a familiar face, MisterWoodhouse, Imzy's Gaming Community Manager, who some of you may know as one of our main moderators on the PlayARK Subreddit. He's run a lot of community sites, subs, hosted a lot of community nights and is an overall great dude!

Cross ARK Clusters!

A new server has been revealed, this one is everyone’s favourite.. server ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ machine, the Cross ARK Cluster!

large.57e5b1a18e74a_ClusterServers.jpg.0

Haha, yes it’s the same thing! These servers were taken pretty well by our player base so we’ve decided to launch some on console too! Xbox Survivors can now get involved in the fun and check out the following servers:

NA-XboxCrossArkCluster1-TheCenter

NA-XboxCrossArkCluster1-ScorchedEarth

EU-XboxCrossArkCluster2-TheIsland

EU-XboxCrossArkCluster2-TheCenter

NA-CrossARKCluster1-Scorched Earth

NA-CrossARKCluster1-TheCenter

NA-CrossARKCluster1-TheIsland

And we've also launched some special 100-player servers that feature the Cross ARK Cluster System!

ARK: Survival Evolved and the Scorched Earth Expansion Pack now include support for NVIDIA Ansel -- a revolutionary new way to capture in-game shots.  Compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share the screenshots in 360 via a smartphone, PC or VR headset. 

Learn more about these features in the NVIDIA blog

Now let’s get to the contest!

There were 3 potential categories for survivors to enter their shots into and they were the following:

Three Categories

  • Super Resolution: These should be taken at 8x Super Resolution. Players can optionally use Depth of Field effects accessible in Spectator mode by pressing the [Delete] key.
  • Panoramic 360 Stereoscopic 3D: These should be taken at 4x Super Resolution,  in 360 Stereoscopic 3D mode. We will crop them to 2D for web display, while also providing the 3D version for viewing within VR display.
  • Freeform: Any settings, whacky and creative use of Ansel filters are encouraged. Adding humorous titles/captions in Photoshop is also acceptable for this category!

And now without further ado, here are your entries!

You’ll want to click on the image title to be able to download the maximum size image, we’ve resized them for display purposes ;)

Primitive+ Developer Blog!

large.57ef27ea83234_A3900E496FADACD8E4B0

Quote

Hey Survivors!

I thought I’d drop in and let you know what’s cooking with Primitive+!  We'll be updating XBOX fairly shortly and that will resolve some of the issues you are seeing but there’s more in store soon!  To all the Primitive+ fans, I appreciate your dedication knowing that it’s behind standard ARK content and missing some of the new ARK goodies!  First, PC will get an update next week which includes the new content and a lot of polish and improvements.  That update will be merged to the XBOX build which will put Primitive+ back on track!  From there, the sky is the limit!  I don’t have much of an update this week as I’ve been busy in the lab squashing bugs.  However, I do want to share some things you could be seeing in the future.

More Weapons - Sometimes a blowgun is the most effective way to tranquilize animals.
More Shelter Options - Meet the Yert! A temporary shelter you may place structures in.
More Building Components - Custom windows for the P+ structure tiers
More Cooking Recipes - Who wants some cake?
New Armor/Skins - When you need a little more style :)

Primitive+ will stay true to it’s nature and continue to diversify some of the common things in the core game to add to the immersion of the island.  I have big plans to change the way some of the systems work in the game and the way you craft things.  With the time before release I will be implementing some of these but the bulk of them will come later since the game is still changing at a rapid pace.  Continue to send me your ideas on things you’d like to see in Primitive+

Since there will be no tek-tier in Primitive+, my goal is to keep adding realistic and useful content while still providing a fun game experience.  People play games to enjoy themselves and having to boil your water before you drink it might not be everyone’s idea of fun (I thought of adding this).  There will be some compromises made for the sake of gameplay but Primitive+ will always aim to be a realistic survival scenario (with dinosaurs) :).

Back to the lab!  Until next week…

Ced

I play primitive plus and I had an idea. This could be implemented in all of ark. We should be able to name chests the name of the item we want to store in it and only those items should go in it. Example, if I name a chest Stone it would be cool if the game recognized that and only accepted stone when you transfer all from your inventory. I like the idea

"New Armor/Skins - When you need a little more style"

YAY! Please consider hemp as a resource! And possibly adding the whip, replace the required resource (silk) with hemp? 

"People play games to enjoy themselves and having to boil your water before you drink it might not be everyone’s idea of fun (I thought of adding this)."

I for one would love this as a server option. My base is on the secluded Island on the center and the first thing I did was build a water reservoir cuz one shouldn't drink salty water..

Need the jerky patch need something else besides the preserving campfire it burns through oil and powder like crazy. Pelican taming is bugged the pelican and allo I saddles also still need to be added in prim+ also whenever I tamed the tape and archa the dossier never pops up and never adds to my profile. Idk also in single when crouched and then stand back up can't move have to recrouch go outside of base stand then able to stand and run around base again. Might be a personal bug on my end. Please more dif stair types beside spiraling stair cases. Also fish bait is bugged was on an official server todymay tried to craft it and I had two stacks of fresh poultry and it wouldn't craft. Also limestone is bugged. Ty wildcard prob sure y'all already had these submitted to you but keep up the good work.

Really loving the evolution events! We have been taming like crazy the last 2 weekends! it is awesome fun! Please continue this each weekend  It's awesome having to only spend half the time taming as previously. (I originally thought it would be better every second weekend, but this can be painful if you can't play that weekend then the following weekend is just normal rates)

Please make it a bit clearer exactly when it will start and stop. People constantly ask if it has started or if it has ended. Maybe an InGame server message and countdown to finishing or just an alert to say it is done. Keep the pink text in the start screen and maybe only display it when it is in effect. "Evolution Event is Currently Active! Ending at: 00:00 EST Monday". or something to that effect.

It can be hard to tell when it has ended or if it will effect taming mid reduction to normal values. I assume it would, so an announcement or something to let you know in game would be awesome.

Also loving the events, I would like to see these events on a weekly basis. Ideas for other events could include, 2x faster, incubation/ growth on Dinos (don't forget about imprint timers), on SE maybe a reduction with spoil timers would be great?. Better/more drops from beacons, increased respawn rates of cave beacons, more up at once etc.

Only comment to the event is a clearer start and end time, I usually test on a tree to check, but nice to know before hand.

Either way please keep the events coming

Loving the events got a 145 Quetz this weekend normally I wouldn't have the time to tame one. Its hard sometimes to find time to get the higher level stuff.  I would LOVE to see more events like this. Personally I think this should be the norm but I will take what I can get.  Normally I played on private servers but they never had the population of the official servers that were 3x on everything.  I could see having 2x might bring some people back to officials.

Believe me, I am VERY, very happy that Sarco is getting some love. One of my only questions is will it gain a secondary attack? Perhaps a Death Roll in water to avoid mantas crowding and shanking Sarcos to death in water, or perhaps a tail swipe for land to avoid rump nippers on land? Oh! Also, since Sarcos do not use stamina in water, and they can be slow since their speed never increases past a point, could they eventually be given a burst ability, taking big hunks of stamina away for super duper speed to avoid certain enemies in water, like a bunch of people chasing you on icthys in PVP?

So Moar Krabbs picture with swearing gets me a naughty point, but pictures with cross species sexual relations is uploaded as fan art. Yeah. Sure. Whatever.

All in favor of a Harpy waifu say aye...AYE.

I wasn't there for the moar krabbs thing, but I know for a fact I ain't trusting the harpy. It could go tsundere and get me killed over something stupid, so imma stay faithful to my tames, as they never got me killed unless it was my fault.

Survivor, TEM187 asks, “A while back you gave us the Dire wolf, and just recently you released Allosaurus. Since the Allo has the pack-boost, when could we plan on seeing the Dire wolf get this boost as well?”

Quote

Yes, the Dire Wolf will be getting similar capability in the upcoming classic-dino TLC pass.

I wonder how the alpha of the pack is chosen.  If you have several wolves of the same level, would it be chosen from its melee or maybe a combo of different stats?
