    Arthropleura Buff on console?

    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. If you head to your Steam Community, Select Workshop, and then on the right-hand side you should see an option for Subscribed Items. Select that, and then you'll need to manually unsubscribe from all the mods, otherwise, they'll continue to patch when they receive an update.
  3. 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?

    Announcing: ARKaeology Event!

    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

    Structure Decay Changes

    Survivors, First and foremost, thank you! Since our announcement post yesterday, we've received an incredible amount of feedback and have decided that we are not going to be rolling out the structural changes this week. We've decided to step back and reevaluate our solution, taking into account the feedback you’ve provided. Our intent behind the change remains the same. We want to address structure spamming issues (pillar/foundation spam) which often takes place when players attempt to claim or grief different areas of the map in both PVE and PVP. However, we understand that there is legitimate gameplay uses for these mechanics. We want to make sure that the inevitable change we make recognises and can differentiate between illegitimate and legitimate cases. We want to ensure that our change is a step forward for the game overall. We anticipate that this could be a significant change for the game, which is why we need the extra time to step back and reconsider all possible options. We remain vigilant and dedicated to addressing issues that affect survivors the most and want to be cautious that changes like these benefit players overall without causing more harm than good. Stay tuned, as we’re hoping to have more details on the update in the future, as well as the ability to work with you directly in determining the best solution.
  6. Thanks for the feedback regarding our structure announcement folks, we appreciate it. Keep it coming.
  7. 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: [email protected] 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!

    Why nerf Dolphin?

    Simply put, we felt that they were reaching speeds that we weren't comfortable with and were highly effective vs underwater bases, so we made a tweak to bring them more in line. We can't really tell you for sure when something is going to change or not, the game and meta are ever-evolving. There's certainly a possibility for more changes to any creature, really.
  10. The lists should be viewable now, sorry about that folks.
  11. Aye, the base rates are still 2x what they originally were when we first released. We just resolved a technical issue that cause 2-stones when picked up (among other things).
  12. If you want to make the bosses be similar to what we have on Official Servers, crank up the difficulty slider to 1 and select maximum difficulty. Then make sure you're not running Single Player settings, that should do it.

    [REQUEST] Permission to use arksurvivalfan.com

    As long as you're clear in your messaging that you're not directly affiliated with us but a fan website, then it'll be all good, the URL is fine too. Thanks for getting in touch!
  14. We noticed an issue with changing the custom cooking bonus dynamically, and that was the core part of King's Harvest! So we're walking it back for now, as it'll require some additional development work to get it functioning as we need it for the event. We've decided to switch up to 1.5x Harvesting, 1.5x Maturing Rates, and 1.5x Egg Hatching. We're still interested in exploring different options, however, for this weekend it would have been a bust without our additional changes.
  15. Evolution Events are supposed to be a special bonus we run during an allotted time period which can affect servers in different ways. Initially, when we first started hosting them, they primarily occurred around sales or patches. Eventually, they became more common and we started to introduce additional options to them (breeding, maturation, etc). We've recently stated that we felt like we were overzealous in 2017 with regards to how we managed these Evolution Events. We decided that we wanted to introduce some new settings into the mix and play around with new options for our Official Servers. This means you may see more unique events like Harvest King, or perhaps something related to crafting, or fishing, there are some options available and at this point, we're still experimenting. I understand that some of you may think that this event should have been a Mother's Day one, and that's understandable. However, the timing of the Kings Harvest is a sheer coincidence and we're going to continue to look into hosting events with more variety. Perhaps it ends up that we'll keep up the frequency of 2017, except you'll just see different ones occurring over the weekend as opposed to the standard 2x Harvest/Taming/XP. That doesn't mean that we'll stop hosting taming, or even the rare breeding events, we just want to explore new ground. The team are always going to try and warn you in advance of events, as well as what they may be. Kings Harvest is our first, of hopefully many unique ones. We're open to hearing more suggestions regarding Evolution Event ideas, that go beyond the standard taming and breeding. As for the comments regarding the name, it's literally just to give it an event. So if you see a post saying that King Harvest is coming, you'll know it has to gathering, farming, and possibly custom cooking recipes.
