Jurassic Ark, an Ark: Survival Evolved Info Hub & Community

Community Crunch #120 & Arkpocalypse Servers!

Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch, now on Mondays! :Jerbhi:

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!

Extinction Arkpocalypse Servers!

Tomorrow, Tuesday at 1:30PM ET our previously named Extinction servers will be rebranded as ARKPOCALYPSE servers for all platforms. They will also now have increased rates! Join a fast-paced server that wipes every month! The increased values are listed below as well as the key ones are listed on the image above.

  Quote

Taming Speed will be increased to 3x
Harvesting Multiplier will be increased to 3x
XP Multiplier will be increased to 3x
Mating Interval will be reduced by 66%
Baby Mature Speed will be increased to 3x
Egg Hatch Speed will be increased to 3x
Baby Cuddle Interval will be reduced by 2x
Crop Growth Speed will be increased to 3x
Hair Growth Speed will be increased to 2x

You’ll be able to play on your favourite map and you’ll be able to transfer between other Arkpocalypse servers on a closed cluster, separate from the main PVP cluster. Note: Arkpocalypse servers are not affected by Evolution Events.

The Great Migration #2!

In case you missed, we will be off-lining some additional Legacy servers on March 9th.

Community Contests!

NVidia Ansel Photography Contest

Super Resolution Version: http://images.nvidia.com/ansel/SuperResolution/ARK-SuperResolution1/ARK__Survival_Evolved_HighRes_2016_09_01_-_14_38_36_55.html

ARK: Survival Evolved and the Scorched Earth Expansion Pack now include support for NVIDIA Ansel — a revolutionary new way to capture in-game shots.  Compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share the screenshots in 360 via a smartphone, PC or VR headset.

Learn more about these features from the NVIDIA blog.

Now let’s get to the contest!

There were 3 potential categories for survivors to enter their shots into and they were the following:

Four Categories

*NEW* Freestyle: These can be images or videos taken using NVIDIA’s new Freestyle filters! If videos are submitted, they must have a maximum duration of one minute.

Super Resolution: These should be taken at 8x Super Resolution. Players can optionally use Depth of Field effects accessible in Spectator mode by pressing the [Delete] key.

Panoramic 360 Stereoscopic 3D: These should be taken at 4x Super Resolution, in 360 Stereoscopic 3D mode. We will crop them to 2D for web display, while also providing the 3D version for viewing within VR display.

Freeform: Any settings, whacky and creative use of Ansel filters are encouraged. Adding humorous titles/captions in Photoshop is also acceptable for this category!

And now without further ado, here are your entries!
