  2. ARK Digest Q&A!

    Hey guys, You know the drill! Have a question for the next ARK: Digest? Let us know! Thanks!
  3. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community! Let's get started with some news. Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ??????? What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what creature it is? Upcoming Turret Change Over the past few weeks, we have been carrying out analysis on our Official Servers to see where we can improve server performance and what the biggest difference is currently versus Early Access. Since ARK went retail, we were expecting to see our servers have better performance due to optimisations, better allocation and usage of hardware, and improved DDoS mitigation. What we have learnt is that there has been a dramatic change in how turrets are being used on Official Servers. The fundamental issue is that tribes are not only significantly increasing the number of turrets they use, but reducing the space they occupy, so the server is having to do more calculations in denser areas. In some cases, we've seen an increase of 7x versus the previous server-profiling data we had. It is clear that we need to make a change in regards to how turrets are placed, but we understand that they are an important part meta-game on Official PvP servers and therefore want to give you as much notice as possible. With the following change, we are expecting a performance increase of 50% on average for our Official Servers (extreme cases up to 300%) and this will have an impact on all maps. Starting from today on PC (and next week on console), you'll receive an update which indicates the number of turrets you have within 10k units. When you exceed 100 turrets within 10k units, there will be a warning placed on the turret to inform you, so you can make adjustments as necessary. On December the 5th, we will flick a switch on our Official Servers which will disable all turrets that exceed the allocated limit. You have the period from now until then to make any changes you want to avoid your turrets from being turned off. Once the turrets are within the permitted amount, they will function again. This patch will also allow the mounted minigun turret to shoot non-mounted tames, but reduce their range to be the equivalent of the auto turret. In accordance with this change, we will also be increasing the damage of autoturrets and TEK turrets by 20%, increasing the item slot count of autoturrets by 50% on the 5th of December. The turret limit will effect: Plant Species X, Autoturrets, and TEK Turrets. So remember, you'll see the visual change first and will have a couple weeks to prepare for the actual change which prevents turrets from being used over the limit. This is all enabled through a server-setting which can be used in the game.ini: TLDR: Turret usage had changed since the game went retail, it has been having a huge negative impact on the server. We will be introducing a limit to how many can be placed within a certain radius on the 5th of December. On PC a patch will be deployed today to inform you of the limit so you can make changes as necessary (and next week on console also). The change affects Plant Species X, Autoturrets, and TEK Turrets. We will also be buffing auto turrets, tek turrets, and minigun turrets. ARK Play Anywhere! This is just a brief update on ARK: Play Anywhere, as we know a lot of you are excited about it (as are we!). It will be entering final submission this week for Xbox One (OneX) and Windows 10. We are expecting to complete the cert process in December for a release alongside Aberration. Alongside this, we plan to launch some Official Servers which will support CrossPlay but will not be enabling it for our entire network, due to anti-cheat mitigations. Unfortunately, TruePlay is not quite ready yet but we are hopeful that BattlEye will be able to make it onto the platform, until then we won't be doing much crossplay on our Official Servers, however, players will have the option to enable crossplay on their servers, be it hosted on an Xbox, PC, or rented through Nitrado. ARK Sponsored Mod Update! It's that time of the month where we announce new mods entering the sponsored mod program! We've seen our fair share of maps, total conversions, rebalance, and creature mods but not often do we get to share mods that are tools that benefit other modders. This month we are excited to announce one of those mods, ArkFrame created by ZenRowe. This isn't the typical mod you might find yourself subscribing to because it doesn't actually contain end-user content. It is essentially a standardization library that modders can use. To most people browsing through the workshop, this wouldn't typically catch their eye. They are more likely to browse through the workshop and find they are already subscribed to it! Why is this mod important for the program and Ark? It will, in time, create an easier way for people to get into modding by standardizing some of the most common functions. Here is an example of a mod made using ArkFrame: Scent Tracker If you're interested in making your mod compatible with ArkFrame or want to start a new project using it, be sure to check out the website and Discord. ARK: 2x Evolution Event Weekend! Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It's already live now and will remain active until Monday the 20th at 12 PM EST.

NVidia Ansel Photography Contest Super Resolution Version: http://images.nvidia.com/ansel/SuperResolution/ARK-SuperResolution1/ARK__Survival_Evolved_HighRes_2016_09_01_-_14_38_36_55.html 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 from 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.

Hey Survivors, You can now download the save files of the Legacy servers which were repurposed on PC from here: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/deprecated-official-pc-server-backups/ This directory should contain each server that we took down, the save file is from the day we announced that we would be repurposing the servers. In the event that more servers are taken down in the future, we will also make those save files available. At this time, we will not be providing the save files for any current server which is online.
  10. Hey Survivors, For an upcoming version of the ARK Digest, we thought it would be good to see if the community had any questions about Aberration that we haven't answered yet. Obviously, we won't be answering everything, that would ruin the surprise ! And of course, the regular digest rule applies regarding ETAs . However, if you have more than 3 questions, feel free to ask them, as this is a more specific topic area, we'll take as many as you want to give. Looking forward to the questions... or theories!
  11. Haven't received aberration skins

    Which version of the game do you own, and do you have the skins in Single Player?
  12. ConfigOverrideSupplyCrateItems= --is broken.

    How's it looking now guys, anyone running into any problems?
  13. Haven't received aberration skins

    Hey guys! We'll check this out. When you say you're not seeing the skins being rewarded on a dedicated server, just to clarify, do you mean Official Dedicated, Player Dedicated or Unofficial PC Dedicated? Thanks
  14. ConfigOverrideSupplyCrateItems= --is broken.

    We've got a fix in the pipeline, the team are looking at internally and if all is well, we'll set it live shortly! Sorry about the wait on that everyone. Just a note, if there's a recommended answer in a thread, you can trust the validity/source :).
  15. Hello Survivors! Studio Wildcard is proud to announce ARK’s second expansion pack, “Aberration”! Launching in 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam, in “ARK: Aberration” Survivors will find themselves waking up on a derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, where they will face exotic new challenges unlike anything before: extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, cave dwellings, charge-batteries, and far more, along with a stable of extraordinary new creatures await within the mysterious depths. But beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids which have evolved into vicious light-hating monstrosities! You’ll uncover the ultimate secrets of the ARKs, and discover what the future holds in store for those strong and clever enough to survive! AN ARK GONE AWRY Aberration places survivors on a damaged ARK: its internal atmosphere has leaked away, resulting in a harsh surface with intense radiation, and a plethora of lush biomes underground. With the maintenance systems of this ARK malfunctioning, the many hazards, creatures, and nature of the environment present a thrilling new world to explore and master. TAME NEW CREATURES The intense radiation of Aberration has led to incredible genetic mutations, resulting in new creatures with amazing abilities! Among others, clamber up walls & glide through the air on the back of a camouflaging chameleon-like ‘Rock Drake’, keep the dark at bay with a friendly ‘Lantern Pug’, grab and toss multiple creatures simultaneously with a massive ‘Cave Crustacean’, or -- if you are talented enough to tame one -- command the vile ‘Nameless Queen’ to impregnate your foes with a horrifying reproductive chest-burster! CRAFT OVER 50 NEW ITEMS New tools are on-hand to survive on the world of Aberration, while opening up many possibilities for new competitive and cooperative scenarios. Traverse the ARK using cave-climbing picks, gliding wingsuits, and ziplines. Learn advanced engrams to dominate the harsh environment, protect yourself with hazmat outfits, charge lanterns, explosive rounds, batteries, glowsticks, railguns and much more. Thrive by gathering new resources, using fishing baskets, gas collectors, fortify your home within the caverns using cliff structures, and much more! CONQUER NEW CHALLENGES Earthquakes, radiation exposure, gas leaks, and Element chambers are among the many hazards that survivors will learn to grapple with Aberration’s varied biomes, both aboveground and below the surface. But among the greatest challenges on this ruined ARK is the hierarchy of unrelenting Nameless, requiring constant vigilance & Charge Energy to defend against! And in the deepest depths of Aberration, their terrifying -- yet somehow familiar -- master awaits… will YOU be among the survivors powerful enough to face him? Season Pass Aberration will be available as a standalone expansion pack ($19.99) and as part of the ARK Season Pass (or the ARK: Explorers Edition). Owners of ARK Season Pass / Explorers Edition will get exclusive in-game Aberration-themed cosmetic item skins, immediately on Steam and in the coming days on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! The Aberration Helmet, formed from the damaged ARK's obsidian-like underground rock, creates an imposing presence for Survivors who wear it. The Aberration Sword, forged from the Element Crystals that run within the deepest chambers of the ARK, emits a subtle glow to strike fear into your enemies. PAX West!

  16. Day 1 server wipe... Xbox official?

    It'll be back online soon, though there may be a slight rollback.
  17. We've got some guys looking into this but not sure when we'll have a fix for it out. As soon as we've got an updated, I'll let you know
  18. The update timers exist alongside some back-end protection (you just aren't exposed to this part) to help prevent a dupe exploit that we previously had with the CrossARK system. There aren't any plans to remove or change it, currently.
  19. The fix should be live for unofficial servers to download, and we'll be redeploying our official PC servers soon (in about 15 minutes).
  20. We've got a potential fix cooking up now and will be checking it out internally before setting it live.
  21. Just to keep everyone informed, we're aware of the reports and we're currently looking into identifying the cause and resolving it as soon as possible. This appears to be a platform-specific bug, and we're iterating on it as quickly as possible. My sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused and we'll keep you updated with news when there is more to share, throughout the process. I've merged the other topics into this one main thread to keep information together, it looks like a tricky one and as soon as I've got an updated on the situation I'll let you know.
  22. Could I get a copy of your config please?
