  1. Community Crunch 202 Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! We've got a short one this week. We're all busy working on new and exciting content for upcoming months. We are remaining focused on the health of the Official Network and collecting bug reports and feedback from various social media platforms. You should expect to see a continued focus on existing bugs and polish as we round into the summer months! On The Horizon Enforcement Updates Mission Areas Last week we encountered a bug that rendered some caves build-able. If you have structures within a mission zone (cave) on the Genesis map, you should remove them. The Enforcement Team will take the appropriate actions to remove them otherwise. Teleport Zones Teleport zones are treated as spawn zones and should not be blocked or have turrets in them on PvP or PvE Mindwipes Recently we deployed a patch with a fix to the cooldown timer on mindwipes. We are aware that this didn't resolve all the existing issues that players are currently seeing. We are actively working on a fix for the remaining issues. Player Dedicated Servers We hoped to have player dedicated servers up and running but we've hit a roadblock that will delay us from being able to deliver the feature as we had previously hoped. We will keep you updated on the progress we are making! Voice Chat We're excited to introduce new chat modes (whisper and yell) for those that found the previous chat functionality lacking. We expect to have this feature deployed to PC in the near future! EVO Events We've enhanced our tuning system that's responsible for rates, like harvesting and taming, to be more accommodating for the various game modes and play styles that are available. This will allow us to do specialized rates for those who didn't normally receive them. We're putting the final pieces in place and we'll let you know when the system is live and ready to go. We'll do a detailed post outlining how you should expect EVO events to work in the future. EVO Event Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 20th of Mar at 1 PM EST until Monday the 23rd of Mar at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 2x Harvesting Rates 2x Taming Rates 2x EXP Rates Until next time!

  3. The dates have been corrected. My body just didn't want to type Friday the 13th!
  4. Introducing Crystal Isles We are very excited to announce that the one-of-a kind experience of the ISO: Crystal Isles map will be coming to PC, XBOX, and PlayStation this Summer! Crystal Isles is a stunning, other-worldly map filled with a vibrant display of teeming life scattered amidst its varied landscapes, awe inspiring floating islands and breathtaking biomes. Ever since Crystal Isles launched as a mod in 2016, its fantasy appeal has secured its place as one of the most popular maps within the ARK community and we can't wait to bring it to players as a fully supported free DLC. The Crystal Isles DLC will also launch resplendent with a new real-world dinosaur to tame! What do you think the new dinosaur may be? In other news, we've been itching to share that we'll be performing a TLC Pass 3 in the Summer of 2020! This TLC pass will see some of our classic creatures get some new love via visual and functional upgrades. As we move closer to the release of the new Crystal Isles DLC and our much-awaited TLC Pass 3 we'll share more details and information with our players. New Sponsored Mods Dead Survival Tired of dinosaurs? Of course you aren’t, but sometimes we do want a little change in our diet. Dead Survival does just that, you can swap out the wildlife of the game with some … not… quite life? Zombies… I’m trying to say you can have zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. Hordes of them even. Check out the Dead Survival Mod Roleplay Additional Items RP communities have been a long time aspect of ARK, but sometimes our core structures can feel a bit insubstantial when you are trying to build a set for acting in. Roleplay Additional Items can add a lot more flourish to your locations from lighting structures and gear, to new taxidermy stations! Check out the Roleplay Additional Items Mod ArkVenture Park I’m pretty sure we have all dreamed of having our own backyard water slides and roller coasters. (Zen may have actually tried at one point, and failed… obviously) But now you can do just that in your base. Build that mine-cart roller-coaster that plows through your living room or a water-slide to the lava pools out back! Check out the ArkVenture Park Mod Castles, Keeps, and Forts: Remastered CKF development went dormant for a little while while the author went on a break. But it’s back, and getting a face-lift. The author is taking what they learned over the years and working on a remastered CKF (The original is still available). So far it’s looking great! Check out the Castles, Keeps, and Forts Mod On The Horizon Primitive+ Primitive+ remains a priority. We have engineering teams working on the complications from the Genesis update. We will keep you informed with any significant progress Genesis Part I Update We're continuing to work on Genesis bugs and balance and we plan to keep up with the rapid iterations. Thank you for your reports and feedback. EVO Event There will be no EVO event this upcoming weekend. Until next time!

  5. This is valid feedback and something we're looking to get corrected as soon as possible. We apologize and appreciate all the work that translators do through CrowdIn. We were trying to get this ready in advance and sadly missed the boat due to a bug with the import of the localization information.
  6. Can you let me know if the latest update fixes these issues?

  9. If only things were that simple. Devs can't tell Fury when it's going to be fixed. If that time was known, it would have been communicated already. I can assure you it's something that's still being diagnosed and prioritized at the moment. On Twitter, its more common for people to talk about this problem in relation to P+. And since I was on Twitter I just assumed that was what we were talking about.
  10. Am I doing this right?
  11. Rollback are extremely problematic for some of the reasons mentioned here and a ton of other technical ones. Rollbacks are a last case scenario and usually happen when it affects the majority of the playerbase or something happens that is so game-breaking we have to. Based on our numbers, this didnt qualify as a rollback scenario. The outage is unfortunate and something we go through extreme lengths to try and prevent.
  12. Please remember to include your tribe log and report which map when you submit screenshots. Without this information, we are unable to act on the information. The reports you submit are extremely valuable. Thanks!
  13. You weren't supposed to see this!! Whoops I forgot to hide this when I originally created it. I'M FIRED!

Pros: - Rewarding loot (chibis / player levels) - Better colored dinos - Event Rates Cons: - Rates (Spawn, Drop) - Event mechanics encouraged toxic behavior - Holiday decorations don't persist Please note that I've disregarded the technical issues with the event for this summary, but they aren't ignored.
