  1. We're aiming to get a patch to console later this month, we'll have a date closer to the time period. Should include the latest PC fixes + changes. No plans for a Giga on Scorched though.
  2. Hey guys, would be good to know some extra info so that we can investigate these crashes further: 1. What Xbox are you using? 2. Does the crash occur when you're launching the game, or when you're launching a map? 3. Are you experiencing this on Official Servers 4. Are you using the Primitive+ Game mode 5. If you're experiencing this in Single Player, could you try an Official Server 6. When did you notice the crash 7. Is your console using a different language?
  3. It will run automatically throughout 6/15 to 7/15. If you have a mod map however, you should run the aforementioned commandline. You can also run the event after the desginated date with the commandline, and if you want to opt-out you can run this: -ActiveEvent=None
  4. Thanks for the feedback regarding our structure announcement folks, we appreciate it. Keep it coming.
  5. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Code of Conduct Updates! Earlier in April, our Enforcement Team announced some changes made to the Official ARK Code of Conduct, as well as how players can make reports on PC. Thanks to your reports, we have been able to take action consistently against rule breakers and cheaters on our Official Servers. Today we would like to announce some changes to the ruleset, we'll be listing the specific changes beneath but it's recommended you check out the entire code here. Hacking and Exploiting Revision Exploiting - examples are not limited to but can include attacking and living in unintended game-zones (under the mesh or above the map), duplication of tames, items and characters, unintended building mechanics (such as floating structures, using the world barrier as a snap point), building a box around your quetzal (or other platform creatures) to completely prevent it from taking damage, modifying your game files to remove key graphical components (water, fog, etc), attacking or blocking players through the terrain with dinosaurs, and intentionally crashing users or servers (through DDoS or otherwise). PvE Specific Griefing Additional rule Intentionally using wild creatures to destroy a player's assets when not in a tribe war. Player, Steam, and Tribe Names Revision Impersonate - pretending to be someone else with intent to impersonate Game Masters ("GM") or Studio Wildcard employees. Mod Community Updates! We have another Wildcard Workshop tutorial for you today. We're going to cover cooking and uploading your mods as well as managing and protecting your workshop linkages in the ARK Dev Kit. Don't forget that the submission period for the current Mod Tutorial Contest closes on Thursday (31st)! The award increase went into effect for the current contest and beyond, so make sure to get your submissions to me before then. ARK: Evolution Event! Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from the Friday the 1st of June at 3 PM EST until Monday the 4th of June 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 Maturation Rates 2x Mating and Egg Hatching Rates 2x EXP Rates The Great Migration #3: ETA June 12th! Just a reminder that there are just under 2 weeks left for the next stage of our Legacy migration. Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works: Taking Down Low Pop Servers With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as the popularity of game mode, we will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of which retain a 0-1 player concurrent population. These servers will be taken offline on June 12th. Any existing server that is not considered a low pop server and is not taken down at this time will still exist on the Legacy network. Legacy servers will continue to remain on a separate cluster from the new cluster, which means you will not be able to transfer anything between Legacy servers and the new servers. Servers Up for Deprecation Below is a complete list of the LEGACY servers that will be deprecated come June 12th. You have from now until then to move your belongings onto a server not present on this list. Please click one of the links below. They are separated by platform (PC, Xbox, and PS4). Most Popular Servers To avoid players having to move again in future, we're publishing the most popular servers across all platforms. These servers are the top 30 most active Legacy servers on each platform and are ones most likely to be safe from any future server removals. PC: Xbox: PS4: How To Move Servers If you are unfamiliar with the process, you are able to upload your items, creatures, and player through the Obelisk terminal, supply drops, as well as the Tek Transmitter. Survivors are advised to use Cross-ARK immediately to relocate their belongings onto a server that is not included in our take-down list above. Allocation of New Servers Our new method of onlining new servers has been through what we call "FRESH" servers. These servers are added to the main network but have downloads disabled for a period of 60 days. After 60 days that restraint is removed and they are officially joined to the main network. We plan to online set of Fresh servers on a monthly basis for all platforms so stay tuned for more information on when new ones will be added if you're looking for a fresh start. Server Saves of Deleted Servers We will make the save files available as soon as we can. We will host the PC files which anyone can download and then you are welcome to re-host the save file for your own use. We'll include a link to where you can download server saves in this post when they are available. Nitrado will also be able to provide the saves for use on Nitrado servers for console, as they have done in the past. Community Livestream #2 Round up! On May 24th we had our second Community Livestream. Thank you to all of those who attended and participated! The community team had a lot of fun and we hope you did as well. If you weren't able to catch the stream you can watch the video-on-demand on our Twitch page or by clicking on the video below. This week Mod Community Manager ZenRowe showcased Saddle Emporium and Crystal Isles. These mods are part of the Sponsored Mod Program and are definitely worth checking out! Saddle Emporium redesigns the ARK saddles and adds multiple variants to them. Crystal Isles is a massive original map by ISO that features crystals and floating islands unlike anything seen before. Our special guest this week was JayEx23 who gave us some PVP tips on the PS4 Pro. From base design to dino choices, we talked about how you can make it as a new PVP player or a player in a smaller tribe in the great big PVP universe. A reminder for next stream, we are accepting bases for a Base Tour section! If you want to show off your base please send some screenshots to the email below and include your server name/number. Unofficial server bases are also accepted as long as your server admin will allow us to come tour on your server. All platforms are welcome to participate. We look forward to seeing all of your base designs! We are still accepting any type of ARK related fanart to be featured in the Showcase section of the stream and entries are always open. This can be drawings, videos, builds, ANSEL screenshots, handmade crafts, anything ARK related! You can submit your ARKwork to our streaming email address: arkfans@studiowildcard.com Be sure to follow us on our Twitch page so you don't miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark We'll be hosting our next Community Live Stream on Thursday, June the 7th! We hope to see you there Upcoming New Speciality Servers! Speciality servers are alternate game modes for ARK that last for a short period of time. Each new theme will bring on a new set of challenges different from that of servers currently available. However, these seasonal servers will wipe and change theme after a determined period of time. We're looking for input from you today. We've set up a thread and we'd appreciate if you could drop your suggestions into the separate thread below. Changes will revolve around edits that can be made to the existing config. These types of changes can include many things such as: tribe/alliance size, anything related to dino stats and taming, server rates, etc. If you have a game mode that you think would be fun to play be sure to leave your comment in the thread: We're hoping to launch our first set of Speciality Servers in June! So definitely chime in and let us know what you're thinking before we finalise our first batch. That's it for this post guys!

  7. Thank you very much for the info guys, the Rag team are checking out the areas and making improvements where they're able to. The next major should be much better than present and hopefully, we'll have tackled all the trouble spots by then. Keep it coming
  8. Yup, we've got more on the way. Glad to hear the experience has improved for you. Thanks for the info!
  9. Thanks for the info! Good news is that we've found some areas that we can tweak up for major improvements around the pirate cave. We're still investigating the other zones, so if there are spots you're frequently crashing in, let me know and I'll make sure the team investigate those areas
  10. We plan to get some additional servers on other platforms in the future We do have extinction which recycle monthly, and we're currently discussing some potential newbie/beginner friendly servers for those who just join the ARK. TLC3 was placed on hold so we could focus on weekly bug fixing patches instead, and for now, the plan is to continue doing that. As for Extinction, when we've got something to share, you'll see it mentioned in one of these announcement posts. That pretty much goes for all the other questions regarding ETAs/Updates, we know you guys want them but when/if we have something to share, you'll see it. For now, you'll have to hang tight! We select the different server-types by seeing what's needed/player activity across our entire network, historically Scorched Earth hasn't been as commonly played as the others and there are quite a few options remaining for that particular map. It's all downloads; so characters, items, and dinos won't be able to be downloaded onto the server for the first 60 days. You can report any griefers on PvE here: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/incident-reports/ and our Enforcement team will check it out. I know that doesn't deal with the problem of people spamming pillars, but it exists as an option. With our focus on the weekly patches, it may be something we can address in the future though we'll need to be careful with a potential change.
  11. This is primarily what we're investigating at the moment, one of the largest difference between the two consoles would be the memory available for the game and probably the biggest difference when it comes to crashing. Thanks, we'll check it out.
  12. How frequently have you crashed here, and would you say it's pretty much always around this area? Sounds unrelated to the specific changes we've made for Ragnarok. Are you playing on an Official Server? Possible that it could have had some technical issues at the time. Are you still crashing in the same location? Around Viking Bay? or a different spot? Same question, whereabouts on the map are you crashing? There may be some more improvements we can make but would need to know roughly where it occurs. Thanks for the information, will check it out! Primitive+ is still missing the complete TLC2 update, so some creatures are going to look a little funky for now. They'll be corrected in the coming weeks when the update is completed and released. I think, for the most part, we've sold a lot of the memory-related crashes that occurred on the map judging by the activity of the thread (there used to be a lot more!), however, it's clear there are some areas we can still investigate. If you're experiencing regular crashes on Ragnarok or any map really in a specific location, let us know where and we'll check it out. GPS coords or screenshots of the minimap/area would assist us greatly.
  13. This is a different issue related to what this thread is about, I'll investigate to see if other players are experiencing something similar, though it's possible it could be a save corruption too. I'll follow up with our programmers to see if there's a way we can get additional info as there have been some changes/improvements made on the backend. As for this topic, it would be good to know if you guys are still experiencing frequent crashes on Ragnarok, if so locations would be good. I'll leave this thread open for a few days to get the responses, and at that point if necessary, we'll create a new thread to investigate the reports.
