      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. Not sure if this is the right place to post this or if I should be contacting steam directly. I haven't played ARK for a couple of months now and decided to get back into the game. It needed an update which I expected (14.4 GB in total) and I set about updating it. Took 2-3 hours to do and then it wouldn't finalize the install; it begun to increase the time remaining to around 300 hours for the install to simply finalize, and showed no sign of decreasing. As it was late, and I had to get to bed, I paused the install and planned to retry the next day. I tried again yesterday to do the install, but now when I try, it says that the download will be 14.4 GB, but when I begin it, firstly it takes forever to allocate space for the download but the downloaded amount steadily increases from 14 GB to over 20GB. I'm not sure if this is an error on Steam's side or with ARK itself. I've been able to install updates and full games easily over the past couple of days from Steam with no issues but ARK simply does not want to cooperate. I'm currently trying to install it now and had to wait nearly two hours for it to pre-allocate space, and the download amount has again increased from 14.4GB and is currently at 21.7GB and raising. Would it be worth my time simply uninstalling the entire game and reinstalling it? Or is there something else that can be done? Thank you in advance, and apologizes if this is not the place to post this sort of problem.
  2. Empty server list

    Hi there! I'm just getting an empty server list from yesterday at around midnight. I was playing the new 278.1 patch, tame my first dire bear in aberration, then I've been disconnected and from then just an empty server list. The server seems to be up on steam but I'm unable to connect to it from the steam server list. I've tried the following: - check the game data integrity (steam game title>settings>local files>verify file data integrity) - play the game from the steam server list (steam>view>server>select server>join) - clear download cache (steam>settings>download>clear download cache) - change server searching filters in ARK (all combinations of MAP, GAME MODE, SESSION FILTER) - checked the general internet connection Any ideas on how to fix the problem? Please have a look at the screenshot and you can find my system settings here below.

  3. I have the win 10 version of ark and want to add mods, I know I can do this with steam and I know there's a way to port "non steam games" into your library. If I do this can I use steam workshop mods? Can I transfer my entire licence to steam? Cause there's an option to add a pre purchased item using the disk code, but ark is a digital download so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  4. you must be connected to the xbox live service to play online. I cant play multiplayer but im in a party and it works on other games i have restarted everything hundreds of times
  5. I have just normal ark for the xbox one, and I have normal ark for the PC with steam. I have gold on xbox, the xbox app on the pc and everything. I am clueless on how to play with my little brother ark from my xbox and computer. We want a private game session where we can be beside each other and just play. Im not sure if I have to start a non dedicated server or what, but when I try that and start one up with crossplay I have no idea how to join that session from my computer. If someone could please instruct me on how I can crossplay it will be greatly appreciated.
  6. Just tried to start Ark and Steam said "Update paused". No controls or indication of why. I launched Ark and Steam came back with "69gb required for update, only 55 gb free". I moved some games and Ark downloaded over 11gb. The biggest thing in the patch notes is Aberration. I do not have Aberration so that shouldn't affect me, correct? Are the SM5 renderer changes something that requires 11.1 gb download and 69 gb of free disk space for installing? If not, you need to look to what you're forcing down the Steam pipeline. Throwing that kind of download / disk space requirements at everyone is not trivial for everyone. I have a very adequate games drive and I had to move games to let this happen, which is also not a trivial exercise for most people.
  7. Aberration download restarting from zero

    Spent 2 hours downloading this, then it restarts at 0/15,1Gb. anyone else getting this?
  8. What does steam download?

    Hi! I'm simple ark survivior. I have ARK and Scorched Earth DLC. They were bought in the start of summer. Now, simultaneously with Abberation release, steam downloads strange 13gb update for ark while I don't have Abberation or Season Pass. It can't be simple big bunch of update because I open steam almost every day. What's this? P.S. Sorry for my english. It isn't my native language and I don't know it very well.
  9. So I did the Alpha Ascension achievement so I could get the clown skin to joke around in singleplayer and it gave me an achievement I don't want it as a steam achievement, Is there a way to reset my achievements, I'm okay with earning all of the ones I got vanilla back, I just don't feel right with a cheated achievement! Please let me know if there is a way, I honestly thought it would just give me the skin so I could take a few screenshots with a Unicorn I found. I've only genuinely earned four achievements and now I feel bad for teleporting or godmoding to certain locations to get them, and the Alpha Ascension achievement is killing me! I just got the season pass and I started to mess around on scorched earth and got some of these achievements I don't want! I earned First Day, First Dino, First Ride, and Rex Rider all genuinely! I don't wanna get banned or anything, I just want it fixed if it can be. Though it is a little stupid that commands can give achievements, not being mean or anything!
  10. Hello, I've just seen that there will be Xbox Play Anywhere being released for ARK and I have a few questions about it: - Will there be mod support? - Will steam users be able to play with Xbox players, or at least get a code for the windows 10 version? - Will it be more optimised than the Steam version of the game? So therefore different requirements?? - Will there be an option to increase the tether distance for non-dedicated players if you are running on Windows 10? Thanks in advance, just some interesting questions that I thought of and other people may find useful to know the answers to as well.
  11. Turret change discussion megathread

    I am an Official PVP player, I feel that the turret, or rather the way they are executing it is absurd. Rather than limiting us to 100 turrets please let it be 200-400. There are many reasons I feel this way. Most people Have larger bases if they have around 30+ days in this game. Most people will know my plead, 100 turrets are not enough in the area you have chosen wildcard! Becuase of this limiting range and small number, Turret towers will be more spread out, now beach spawns pretending to be experienced listen well, you may think that us "big alpha tribes" will have to start playing with "skill", because of this people will not decrease there number of turrets, but rather will just spread this number out, if you have been graced with protection from a larger tribe, there will next to no areas to build, and spawns will be blocked. Stegos even after there "fix" will still be overpowered. plus this will not be fixed because most people will just do the same thing we do with the dinocap. Alt account allianced tribe. I feel this nerf is completely pointless and will just force players to find ways around it. I repeat do not push forward with this wildcard. This is finally pushing the dagger through the throat wildcard. You have nearly killed your game more than once, and this is its last stand. My final words, Wildcard do what the players are gonna do, find other ways to reduce the lag. because this will surely not do that. That was my opinion on this, whats yours. beach spawns please keep out of this because you have no idea what you are talking about. Have a great day - Rogue
  12. Hi devs, I'm the Ukrainian translator that actually translated ARK into Ukrainian. It means that I'm really passioned with the ARK, but… On the last Tuesday Steam added 11 new currencies to its store. I'm sure you know about that as every dev received at least 3 notifications about changes. But if a develover don't activate the currency, Steam won't show any price for new regions. So right now 11 regions can't buy the game. Look at the SteamDB and the prices: Can you please fix that and put Steam recommended prices or lower? For Ukraine it should be at the level of Russian or lower in USD, as its ecomony and payability levels are way lower than Russian. Thank you.
  13. Regional Pricing

    Hello! First of all I mean no offence in my next writing at all. The game is great and developers are the best. The reason I'm writing this lies in today regional changes in Steam. Namely with the separation of the Ukrainian region from the CIS region and the inclusion of Ukrainian Hryvnia currency. The game ARK and all of its DLCs and season pass, Explorer Edition and so on are unavailable to purchase. The reason is very probably that Studio Wildcard haven't yet set the price for our region. While the setting of the price is just the matter of time, the prices of the game and the content worry me a lot. Recently, when the game leaved the Early Access the price in Ukraine has become $40 while in Russia it costed 55% less. I might point you that the price for Ukraine is incredibly high and I'll try to explain my words. First of all the salaries, pensions and living wage and the purchasing power in general in Ukraine is around four times lesser then in Russia. Our economy is in the deepest crisis putting it on the same level as poor African countries. A great amount of public sector employees live for a month income of ₴3200 (~$120) or even less. The science, education, medicine fields etc. are ruined. For example I, as a theoretical physics researcher earn a little more than $90 a month! Doctors have around $120-135 monthly, university lecturers have around $120 and most professors of science earn not much greater than $190+ for a whole month. So you understand that an arbitrary Ukrainian faces a choice - to buy a game on steam for $40 or to survive. For most developed countries $40 is to go once in a café on a weekend but in Ukraine you must fit all your food for 30 days inside $40. There is another side of thinking about the fair pricing. Ukraine region recently was #12 region by steam online globally. But vast majority players play only free games. You could think of it as there are millions of players in Ukraine, the gaming culture is extremely strong here but they just couldn't afford buying a legit game from a legit store. So a great majority of Ukrainians either play freeware or play pirated. My point is with fair pricing the almost absent Ukrainian market can have a great potential proportional to its player base. You may sell hundreds of thousand copies of a game for affordable price or a few hundred for prices like usual. To conclude I hope that when the game becomes available to purchase in Ukraine again it will be priced fairly (I think 0.25-0.5-1x of Russian price but I am no economist) so many thousands of Ukrainian players could play this great game, enjoy it and support the developers with what they can. Best regards, Oleksandr Stepanenko

  15. Help! I'm on mac and whenever I try to load up Ark: Survival Evolved, I get to the main menu, I try to join an online server, and it loads for a few minutes, then it goes black and brings me back to the main title screen. Then whenever I try to press play, it wont let me, but it will let me go into single player, and options and everything else. I have a strong computer, so I am confused to why this is happening. Ive already tried uninstalling the game and verifying the game files multiple times. If this has happened to anyone else and you know a way to fix it, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you <3 Steam: xBlackhawK
  16. Hello! I was just wondering if anyone knew any good servers to play on. (Im on Mac) I prefer servers with more players, but I like unofficial servers. I don't really enjoy when the gathering/exp levels are too high, but I like it when they are on around x2-x5. I don't enjoy servers that are only made for PvP, with kits and such, but I like it when PvP is still enabled and a few mods are there, like S+. So if anyone has any good suggestions I'd love to hear them. My steam username is xBlackhawK by the way. Thank you for taking your time reading this, I just need a good server to play on. Peace. <3
  17. This is not isolated to me. I live in Ireland but we seem to default to the UK servers. I've found users across the UK who are also have the exact same issue. Download speeds of only a few kbps for long periods, then speeds in excess of 10MB/s which last for only 20 seconds in some cases. This has nothing to do with my own connects, I have 10MB connection and it is perfectly stable. I was able to download the 25GB game in under an hour on the UK server. Example of others with this issue http://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/0/1488861734105480220/ We've found that switching the download servers to France or Belgium significantly help the speeds. I tried for a day and could not get 30mb downloaded, switched to france and now I have 60GB of workshop mods. I thought this may be due to throttling by steam so I limited my connection to 2MB. This made no noticeable change in download speeds. This has now been an issue for 3 days is still occurring. Please can someone at WildCard contact steam, they won't listen to lone customers.
  18. Ragnarok, chunk corruption

    {PC} {UNOFFICIAL} Every time I enter the chunk around 32, 20 the entire multiplayer server (that I do not own) crashes. The server owner and I tested this several more times, and we have confirmed it is causing the server to crash. I have attached a screenshot of my map just when I crashed. Note you can see the flying ichthy in the background. The server owner even tested this location on his separate single player test server and same issue. "I know in the forums it said not to post maps, but this wasn't what I was trying to show. The server crashed so I was unable to lower my map, but it is still decent reference.
  19. Ragnorak, Corrupted area

    Every time myself and a few others go to an area on the map Ragnorak the game crashes the server 30, 20 is the cords near the area best we can figure. We have used a test server and the server that is active to the public. Thank you for any help you can give.
  20. Pls help me !! The Support Dont Answer me and i need your guys help ! When i launch with any oqtion the Game thought Steam comes : Fatal Error ! ...... I have Check Game Files , Reseted Game Reselution and have Reinstall but it doesnt going !! When u guys need the Error ? Say it than i send it
  21. Hi, I'm trying to join a unofficial server since yesterday, ([PvP][H200][T1000][XP1000]) and currently its players is 1/30. It doesn't show up in ARK Server list or in Favorites. I tried to join it via BattleMetrics and Steam shows it is 37/30???, I don't own this server so I can't restart it. I tried searching it via Steam server list, but it didn't appear. I tried Network Troubleshooting and Port Forwarding, but nothing. How to fix this bug? Thanks! Server in BattleMetrics
  22. Joining failed

    yesterday i tried to play on a official ark server like everyday, but when i tried to join it always stopped loading and the massage : ,,Joinig failed`` came! Why is this ? I never had this before !
  23. Does anybody know why my steam wants to reinstall ark every two weeks? its not an update, the game worked fine before, and there is just no reason why it needs to reinstall. I found no fix for that and I am sick of it.
  24. Are there any plans to allow people who purchased the UWP version of the game to add the season pass to their Steam account? I've had the Steam version since early access but I bought the collectors edition for Xbox One. There wasn't any option to get the collectors edition items for PC, other than a vague maybe, and I was fine with buying it again since it has crossplay with PC. But it seems dumb to expect us to pay another $40+ just to play the same DLC maps with friends on Steam.
