  1. We'll be in touch via the email you used to register the account with.
  2. Just to provide some clarity surrounding the new creature. It'll be found on Crystal Isles on PC, and on Console it will be available on the other maps (list TBD). Once we've released Crystal Isles on Consoles, we'll be adjusting its spawn so it's found there instead. Whilst the map needs some additional time to get it ready on console, the creature will be ready and we didn't want to hold it back. Plus with the launch of CI, we'll still get some new Wyvern variants which'll be fresh at the time.
  3. A lot of the servers were already upgraded, we're just in the process of hitting ones that haven't been so far. As for recent server performance/stalls/crashing, we've been doing some monitoring over the past week and have made some improvements, and today's patch that's going out right now (310.5) has some additional data-gathering tools enabled for us to identify more of stalls & crashes, so hopefully we'll be able to get some good data and get some more fixes in.
  4. Thanks for the thorough report, we'll investigate it.
  5. Alrighty, we've just pushed a fix live for Primitive+ issues not displaying. You'll need to restart your steam applications to download the latest client, that'll sort it out.
  6. We are looking into the Prim+ servers not showing up for some clients. Hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.
  7. That's excellent, we'll still keep this open for a bit longer just in case there are others with the issue but hopefully it's squashed for good. Appreciate your patience with this folks
  8. Sorry, by legacy I mean, characters who had the issue prior to our patches going out.
  9. We've been advised that the update for the Windows 10 version of the game should be coming through a little later today
  10. This is a top priority for us and we've been working on a fix. Unfortunately our first 2 attempts did not resolve the problem for legacy characters (those who experienced the bug before the patch went out), but it may have resolved it going forward. Obviously this isn't great news, as it's legacy characters that we want to target so we're working on 2 different things right now to release as soon as possible to every platform: A one time clearance off all mindwipe related cooldowns. Hopefully this is the fix that will take care of the issue for legacy characters too and they don't find the issue resurfacing after the mind wipe has taken place A one time free forced respec for everyone (in the event that the former doesn't work, we should be at least able to respec everyone) as we know some of you haven't been able to change your builds since Gen launch, which we're very sympathetic too. We know this bug is a pain but appreciate y'all hangin in there and rest assured, it is a priority for the team and we do plan to get it sorted out as soon as possible.
  11. We just pushed another update which should have readded the missing files. Sorry about that folks. Let us know if you're still running into issues.
  12. We have reproduced the issue now on PS4 and are actively working on a fix, should be pushed to your consoles as soon as possible (afraid I don't have an ETA at the moment).
  13. Our team has reproduced the crash and a fix will be on the way.
  14. Are you able to show me precisely where on the map? I am at this location and don't seem to be experiencing any problems.
  15. 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

  17. Thanks for the feedback regarding our structure announcement folks, we appreciate it. Keep it coming.
  18. 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!

  20. 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
  21. Yup, we've got more on the way. Glad to hear the experience has improved for you. Thanks for the info!
