ARK at PAX West

As we approach closer to PAX West, The ARK Team would like to remind you that the #PAXRex and its new gigantic friend will be making their appearance on September the 2nd at the Washington State Convention Center!

We’ve got something very special planned and cannot wait to share it with you, of course the event will be streamed live from the booth on www.twitch.tv/survivetheark where the mysteries will begin to unravel! This will be something that no Survivor will want to miss ;).

Community Contests!

ARKitect!

This is an award given to Survivors to celebrate the amazing structures you build. These bases are judged based upon a number of different factors such as their creativity, uniqueness, how fun of a base it is, the difficulty of building it, the functionality it provides and much more!

And without further ado, the ARKitect for Community Crunch 61 is…

Wolf Angelus for their futuristic Angelus Restaurant!

ARK Digest and Workshop Spotlight!

It’s still not here yet! Sorry guys, but we’re hoping to actually post a digest later this weekend or early next! The reason for the delay is due to focus on some development work but it’ll be back soon :). However… we did have a bit of a surprising entry in our Community Crunch! Normally Cedric runs through the workshop spotlight but he’s been occupied with a major Primitive+ patch, as well as PAX Preparations – however community Modder Tao stopped by to let us know about the mod they’re working on! Hopefully down the road we can speak to you directly and get a fuller showcase going, but here’s what he has to say:

ARK: Survival Plus

ARK: Survival Plus aims to bring a more immersive survival experience to the game. To achieve this the mod adds hundreds of new items, new crafting structures and a more in-depth crafting system that utilises amongst others tools, world-based crafting, clay shaping, glass blowing and intermediate crafting components. In addition the player faces new challenges – instead of just eating the player needs to take care to get enough of various nutrients, the elements are harder to endure, fights can result in wounds that need to be treated, and finally the Dino AI is getting a large overhaul. Animals behave smarter in general, and one by one animals get special behaviours – from mound-building Titanomyrma to Pelagornis that steel the player’s food. Dino taming is also being reworked – many creatures are rendered untameable to make survival more challenging. The remaining creatures currently have to be tamed with peaceful methods and entirely custom taming methods are a work in progress.

The mod is a joint project of myself (aka Tao) and Hamildor. Hamildor is doing the more complex 3D art and the balancing while I work on the actual modding, game play design and texturing.

Here are some images showing models that both Hamildor and I created as well as some of our custom Dino AI changes – Ants building hills and defending their territory, Pelagornis stealing food from campfires, cooking pots and food storage and bait that allows players to distract carnivores.

Sounds like an awesome mod. Looking forward to it’s progression :)

And that’s it for this post guys!
