  1. We agree! We're working on fixes daily, especially for under the meshing. Unfortunately it's a game of cat and mouse, as we resolve methods, more are discovered but we've certainly cracked down on a lot so far and will continue to do so. We don't have a lot of presence on Steam, we primarily use it for announcements and making sure that some important information is available (patch notes, events, resources etc). We're a small team, so it would be preferred if players were using these boards/Reddit to engage with us directly. Steam is just covering one part of our player base, whereas our hub is platform agnostic and more people have the option of voicing their opinion and sharing their feedback. That rule is more so targetting tribes who are frequently having members being punished/removed from the game for cheating. If you're unsure whether something is against the rules, just send us a message about it (as mentioned in the CoC). We're not looking to 'pick' on people, or target them for small/minor issues. Part of the reason for switching to this system is so that we're not as sluggish as we used to be and we're able to deal with reports as they're incoming, much quicker. We no longer support our Legacy servers since retail launch. We'll only update them and make sure that they're still playable if they're online and still accessible. In some extreme cases, we may respond to reports but it's not likely.
  2. Right, for now, this is a PvP specific rule as it's meant to prevent players from spawn killing others with turrets immediately. In future, you can contact that email in the post for clarification regarding any rules.
  3. Constant Crashing on Xbox after Update

    Yup, these memory improvements are related to the map so they'll make their way onto PS4 too (and they're already live on PC)
  4. Constant Crashing on Xbox after Update

    I have some good news about this, it looks like we've saved at least approximately 10 - 25% worth of Memory on Ragnarok, depending on where you are, and it's possible we could have saved more in some cases! In addition to that, I haven't been able to reproduce the GPU-memory crash so it looks like we're in a pretty solid spot. Hopefully, it's taken care of once and for all Once this patch goes live, I'll be closing down this thread and if necessary, we'll make a new one if there are further cases we need to investigate and look into. Thank you for your patience guys, I know this has taken a lot longer than anyone could want, will certainly be keeping an eye on this with the future update. Normally I'm not one to try and get folks hopes up or build up hype, but it's looking really good right now. Sadly I won't be able to check all cases but I will be looking forward to the feedback from everyone. Hopefully, I haven't jinxed it by letting you know a little sooner!
  5. Ps4 players ripped off of sale

    We specify on the sales which region they're affecting, NA and EU/ROTW are different teams and have different rules, which is why you see different sales and that is part of the reason why EU has this specific option for completing your season pass, but NA doesn't. Though I wouldn't say it was an advertised option, as it has never existed in the first place. That said, we have followed up with the Sony team to see if this is something that they could possibly implement on their side, similarly to how EU/ROTW is setup. As for when the date is, I don't really have a timeline to provide, they're normally covered under NDA and not announced early. If we're able to let people know they're incoming we will! For now, you'll have to stay tuned for announcements via social media and our news page here as they'll be promoted there.
  6. Primitive Plus Structures

    We had actually just made a new build for them to deploy this morning to see if we could identify why they weren't able to place structures but looks like it's been solved anyway
  7. We've not always run them each weekend, this was just the first time we've given the heads up about it, though you'll see an event the following weekend. This was mentioned in the post and may have been missed, but we're taking a break from these contests, we're looking into other ways to actively engage the community. Feedback is appreciated though

  9. 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! Console Transfers and TLC2! We're targetting a console release for this update in mid-April (week of 16th April) and will keep you posted about more accurate release dates once we get closer to the date! With this update, we'll also be: - Enabling item transfers and the vanilla-version of aberrant creatures to be moved to Aberration servers. This means that you'll be able to take over your regular Spino to an Aberration server. - Preventing people from building within the Ragnarok Puzzle cave, so if you store any structures or creatures down there, make use of this time to relocate them ASAP as once this update goes live on console, that will no longer be possible. It is important to note that the Turret Update will not go live on console with this update, but instead a future one. Upcoming Maintenance for some NA PC Servers! The maintenance will take place on Wednesday, April 11th at 2 pm Eastern. The maintenance will take approximately 2 hours to complete. During this time the servers will be shut down and the save data transferred. Once the transfer is complete, the servers will be brought back online. These servers will no longer appear in your Favorites due to an IP address change, therefore, you will need to search for the server again and re-favourite your server. You can find the list of servers in this thread: ARK: Evolution Events! We will not be running an Evolution Event this weekend. Our next Evolution Event will take place from the 20th of April at 1 PM EST until Monday the 23rd at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 2x Harvesting Rate 2x Taming Rate 2x EXP Rate Easter Egg Contest! During the Eggcellent Adventure Easter Event, we ran a little egg painting contest! Survivors were tasked to collect their Easter Eggs and decorate them! We had two categories, one for in-game submissions, and the other was for real life egg painting. With the conclusion of the event, we're excited to announce our winners! Let's give it up for the following survivors and their eggcellent painting abilities! Rex Hatching Egg by Mitharen! Bunny Dodo Egg by Hosscat! and... Bunny Plesiosaurs Swimming Egg by wenkula! We'll be in touch via email for your prizes! We hope you guys enjoyed the Eggcellent Adventure event! We've loved all the screenshots you've sent us of the festively coloured tames you've discovered. Here are some pretty awesome ones: This year, unofficials servers can also continue to enjoy the event to their heart's content by keeping the event running Mod Tutorial Contest Update! Mod tutorial contest #3 is currently underway and still accepting entries until Friday. Remember that for this contest I am looking for tutorials for ridiculous and wacky buffs. I would also like to announce that the winner of the mod tutorial contest #2 is Xanjis! He has made an excellent tutorial for making a material/blueprint combo react to the time of day in ARK. Using a system like this, you could have a material do any number of things. It could shift textures, change values for stuff like roughness or specular or any dynamic parameters that you have set for your materials. You could have the entire world look light and fluffy during the day and nightmarish at night! Have fun with this kind of system in your mods! Next week I will have a new Wildcard Workshop tutorial ready for you. We'll be diving into and breaking down replication for you all. You get a detailed look at how to build your mods with multiplayer in mind while keeping them performant. Official PC Legacy PVE Savefiles! Download 'em here! Attention PC PvE Legacy Survivors! We've made the current Legacy PC PVE Savefiles available to download. This has been a community request for some time from our player base as some of you have expressed interest in moving on to your own dedicated servers. The snapshot was taken on the 3rd of April 2018 and we're going to see if we can also make console PVE legacy saves available. Please keep in mind that we won't be offering this on our regular Official Network or PvP Legacy servers. Notification Settings on SurvivetheARK! There have been some changes made to the email notification settings on our community hub. You can read more about the changes in Chris' latest announcement: ARK is on Sale for PS4 & Xbox! ARK is available on sale in the PS4 Europe region with discounts across all titles!

Future Contests Going forward, we're going to be pausing our weekly community contests (ARKitect & Nvidia Ansel).

  11. Yes I meant I compared the Steam version to the Live Xbox game, I didn't see any differences between the two. I am not experiencing the scrolling you've got. Advanced settings would be an in-game screenshot of your ARK settings, there are certain options we have that could possibly effect scrolling/UI movement, this screen in particular is what I'm after: Though for sanity, you can send me this too:
  12. Just wanted to let you know that the team are aware of the reports regarding HDR on console and concerns with it being oversaturated, as well as the workaround you've proposed. I don't have a timeline for a fix, but wanted to reassure you that we were aware of it.
  13. Unable to Transfer Character 279.242

    This thread was related to a client-side bug we had on PC which prevented transfers, if you're on a server that's experiencing trouble, please let us know by filing a report here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd8Xn6z_RP7fxGgH_86VZAKDzqmbDboanrC51GSpr_1v9_PLA/viewform
