    Patch v256 comes to you today crammed with new content, including vacuum-sealed underwater bases and aquatic creature breeding, TEK teleporter pads and wireless generators, and four new creatures. It also brings the first major menu redesign of ARK, as the Inventory UI receives a complete visual and functional overhaul for a streamlined new look. This is a huge upgrade that means easier access to everything in the player’s inventory. The TEK Tier for ARK is being implemented in multiple phases, with today’s update including awesome new element powered gear like: TEK Underwater Bases! This allows fully-enclosed structures to be created underwater, with ventilators to allow oxygen filled room. Air-locks allow players to enter and exit without flooding their base. TEK Power Generator! This wireless generators power TEK structures and any Tribe electrical structures in adjustable range. TEK Teleporter! Easily and quickly move around the expansive open-world island, but very challenging and expensive to obtain! TEK Mosa Saddle! Once placed on the Mosasaur it equips the beast with lasers and more. TEK Tier content is a wave of sci-fi-themed, end-game features that reward hard-working Survivors with awesomely futuristic gear and guns. Players wanting TEK Tier loot will need to gather the newly introduced Element resource, which is granted after successfully completing Boss Arenas. Each Boss has three difficulty levels (easy, medium, hard) and after defeating the respective Boss are awarded with unique TEK Knowledge engrams, element and other general Boss Rewards. Collect the Element, then use the TEK Replicator to craft all TEK items! Likely an ancestor to the modern horse, Equus Magnus is a much larger steed, and when tamed, can be used in much the same way - riding, herding, and used as pack animals. Equus is so large, in fact, tribes have been known to not only ride them, but attach extra large saddlebags to them, essentially making them into mobile research and crafting stations. Craftable within the Equus' saddle inventory, the new Lasso item can be used to wrangle creatures and players while riding. Now you can live out your cowboy dreams in ARK! If Survivors are lucky, they may come across a majestic sight. The Unicorn is the rarest creature on the Island, with it's white coat and horn protruding from its' forehead. It can be tamed just like the normal Equus. However, only one of these magical creatures exists on the map at one time, so treat it with the utmost care! Leedsichthys Conviviumbrosia is the largest fish in the waters around the island. Its meat is also extremely succulent which is unusual given its size. It is often traded with the same value as Prime Meat, and colloquially called 'Prime Fish'. Of little taming value, tribes do keep schools of Leedsichthys in pens for meat, as it is so huge, chunks of meat can be cut from it without causing it death or permanent injury. While Leeds is normally passive towards humans, it is extremely aggressive towards boats on the open water. Rafts that enter its' territory will quickly find themselves in grave trouble and will be forced to fight or flee, or lose their home. The alpha Leedsichthys, which is somehow even larger than the average Leeds, is massive and white in colour. If a Survivor manages to kill the beast, they will be rewarded with lots of fish meat and a special cosmetic skin hidden within it's belly. Iguanodon Vicissitudinis is a large herbivorous dinosaur that bears a strong resemblance to the Parasaurolophus but without the distinct head crest. Iguanodon has two spike-like thumbs for prying fruits open to pick out the seeds and for stabbing would-be predators. They are as capable of walking on all fours as they are on just their hind legs. Combined with its highly effective fruit harvesting and substantial carry weight, the Iguanodon's excellent mobility in bipedal stance makes it an ideal field-hand that can also pull off a quick get-away, or an agile defense, when needed. Considered just a "plain old" normal seagull, Ichthyornis Piscoquus lives near beaches, surviving off of native fish. While timid by nature, if tamed, they become partners for their tamer, riding their shoulders. Survivors can send their tamed Ichthy to attack small prey such as fish, dodos, and compys. The fish it brings back are rich in meat and far better than a Survivor would be able to catch by hand, making the gull very useful. A long time coming, Patch 256 finally brings breeding to the aquatic and amphibious creatures of the ARK. Underwater eggs cannot be picked up by players as they cannot survive out of water, so plan ahead carefully! Underwater eggs will incubate in water at all times so there is no need to monitor their temperature. These adorable little ones will certainly steal their way into your heart. In addition to all of the above (it's a lot!), this patch also includes the following: Lots of new in-game sounds 1 New Hairstyle and 1 New Facial hairstyle (Growable ponytails with full physics and mutton chops!) 30+ new Explorer Notes The full patch notes for version 256 can be seen here: Weekend Sale! From today through to April 3rd, ARK is 67% off and Scorched Earth is 51% off on Steam! Additionally, the ARK “Survivor’s Pack” on PS4 is currently 25% off from March 28th through to April 4th! If you or your friends haven't picked up a copy, now is definitely the time to do so! ARK: Evolution Event Weekend! Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! The Evolution Event will be active until Monday the 3rd at 12PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 1.5x Harvesting Rate 1.5x Taming Rate 1.5x EXP Rate Reminder: this 1.5x bonus is on top of the 2x rates that are now standard on our official servers! Thank you Survivors! We hope you enjoy the update!

    Was exploring the massive cave in the cliffside by the Edge of the World in the Center map and much to my disappointment, I found that I could not snap a pillar to the ceiling of the cave to build a suspended platform. I think this would be an amazing addition to the game. How cool would it be to build a humongous base hanging from the ceiling of a cave?

    Okay so let's see. New UI - great, looks good! New sounds... Hmm, sounds different but can get used to. Flyer nerf - NO, ABSOLUTE FREAKING NO. Base movement only. Tapejara now slower than Quetzal. Wyvern takes half stamina for one lightning bolt. Questions: How are you supposed to steal eggs from scar now if you have no wyvern and depend on argent/tape/ptera? Anyone? Do devs even communicate? This is ridiculous. Idk what pvp players did to deserve such nerf, but please bit of god don't affect pve with it. This is unplayable. On the other side I understand pve can be a bit boring cause flyers are free to roam around without any trouble but this is just too much. They have been nerfed to the ground, and wild flyers like tapejara or argent are still having the same speed? How are you supposed to capture a tapejara now? Count for it to land? This patch just blew my mind. You ruined my gaming experience. Sorry for being so negative, I love ark, I really do. But nerfing flyers SO HARD on >>>PVE<<< is just like a blow below your waist. Take it back. Set a SPEED LIMIT INSTEAD! Or make new base speed. PLEASE. OH AND BY THE WAY! Center is still missing thylacoleos and overall update from February. Thought about that maybe? Now not getting March update either? What a joke.

    Everyone are hoping that this is April Fools joke, I sincerely hope so as well from the depth of my heart. Maybe it's not a coincidence they delayed it up till this sneaky day. Maybe they just want to see our reactions and then either pretend it was supposed to be a joke or just go on without caring about how many players they're going to lose. If this turns out not to be a joke, I'm deciding to kill all my animals, disband my tribe, throw away all the blueprints, demolish all the hard work, uninstall and leave a nasty not recommended opinion about the game. Devs, listen to your player base before it's too late.

    Sad to say it but this nerf really makes me rethink getting back into the game... As a game dev myself Im usually the one playing the devil's advocate for the devs but this is really just too much. I can understand wanting to nerf the fliers so that grounders see more use but trying to do so when the game is this far into its early access (2 years about?) is just plain stupid. A lot of things relied on and were built around the creatures having speed and stamina (IE getting dragon eggs, picking) now these areas of the game are all but ruined. Look, WC, I know you guys are new and all but this was more than a rookie mistake. If this was an April Fools joke, then well played, if not, then I guess I can call Steam for a refund.

    Somewhere, Jat mentioned that private servers would be able to avoid this clusterraptor that WC has thrust upon us. Right now, I have one remaining tribe member who has been told NOT to update their game, and to not exit the game. I refuse to allow my aviary to be completely screwed by WC that I've spent months breeding up and working up to where they are now because WC can't get their heads out of their asses and the "but we'll tweak it now!" excuse doesn't fly with me. This was a completely non-transparent nerf that was designed to piss off your playerbase, congrats, you did it. You've made it to where I don't want to be on land, I now can't go out to sea, and now I should limp along in the skies because "balance". Screw the balance. I'm going over the config files and the options I have in there, and the only thing I can see is the PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed<type>[<attribute>]=<multiplier> and PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoWild[<attribute>]=<multiplier>. If there is no way to rectify this situation on my server, I will simply shut it down and demand my money back from our host and let them know it's WCs fault. This was poorly thought out, poorly executed, and the idea of trying to "fix" it now that the base is angry is a crap way to handle things. Typically, companies tend to NOT try to piss off their base (which also explains the 67% off in the Steam shop, expecting this were you?) and tweak things as they go. What a complete and utter disaster. If I didn't have tribemates reliant on me, I would tell you to go shove a pike up your asses and shut it all down.

    Well, RIP Ark. I was kind of expecting it would end like that. Wildcard just doesn't know how to balance things. If I look at League of Legends for example...They slightly change things, look what happens within the next week and if it wasnt enough or too much, they fix it. But you just chop a hole into our birdcage and yell " HERE'S JOHNNY!!!"

    I called Steam Customer Service, and explained what happened, the impact on the game and the time I have lost. They offered a full refund for both the game and SE applied to my Steam account.

    They totally screwed all fliers. This has to be a joke or a major screw up. I know there are a lot of breeders not happy right now with this decision. Hopefully there will be a role back otherwise they keep screwing the game and its players base.

    Great so the argy is one of the coolest looking Dino's in the game and they made it even more use less than it was before. Not to mention they just changed the taming quetzal game. They do realize the a majority of their players have jobs and lives right?

    wow you guys just keep ruining the game making it worse and worse now you have no chance of taming certain dinos and more. You put out these addons thinking we will get excited and then you kick us when we are down no wonder it is 67% off your losing so many people to modded servers is that the just of it reverse the nerf and make the game worth something more then taking up disk space do you even try these fixes before you implement and is the person a gamer ?

    So unicorn only spawns once on a map. If someone tames it will another eventually spawn or do we have to wait till the first one dies to hopefully get at another unicorn.

    I guess my one question is how are we supposed to take advantage of the Leed if it can't be tamed. Kinda hard to keep wild creatures in pens and keep them from disappearing. Other than that I am beyond excited.

    Cables are definitely a better way to do this than pillars. Great idea! That would also be a good way to make sure that these are a higher tier base type (like the tree platforms) since they are highly defensible.

    Also, in addition to being able to suspend pillars from cave ceilings, I think it would be cool to have cantilevered platforms that could snap to the side of a cliff. Obviously this would be limited in the distance you could build away from the cliff, similar to the way platform saddles and rafts have a build radius. Anyways, let me know what you think. Anyone else like to see suspended/cantilevered platforms?

    Would it be possible to expose wild dino attributes that are possible of being incremented @ level up in a server configurable ini file? For example, if I wanted wild dinos on my server to only have a chance at allocating level up points to Health, Melee, Stamina, and Weight (while not "wasting" level up points on the other attributes) I would in theory "disable" the other attributes in an ini file entry, or something like that..... Nothing pisses me off more that knocking out a high level rex and finding it has 50 levels in oxygen....

    Hey do you think we could be getting a wing suit added into the game? It would look like something like hiccups from how to train your dragon, and its functionality would act as a parachute and slow the rate of decent in the air as well as increasing your movement speed in air. It could be part of the "riot/modern day" tier or put into Tek I suppose!
