Community Contests!


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!

There were a lot of fantastic entries this week, so it was very difficult to choose winners out of the bunch. Fantastic job by everyone who entered, but let’s get to it:

The ARKitect for Community Crunch 59..

It’s a tie!

Congratulations to:

We’d also like to congratulate Valoule as a runner up, a very impressive spaceship build!

Howdy Survivors!

I hope you are having a blast with your new primitive items!  Over the past week, I’ve been monitoring the forums and social media taking in your feedback.  Your voices have been heard!  I realize this launch wasn’t squeaky clean and not in the ideal place to launch the “official” version.  Some of those arose due to the conversion to DLC, while others had already existed in the mod.  It was never my intention to have someone first experience of Primitive Plus be riddled with issues and bugs.  Needless to say, I’ve been busy in the lab making sure that I make this a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone.


A big thanks to Jimmy NoShoes from the SurviveTheArk forums for compiling a comprehensive bug list.  I optimistically wanted to get the patch out this week but I’d rather be 100% sure that any game-breaking bugs have been ironed out.  We are only looking at a few more days – thanks for holding out!


On a positive note, I’m excited for what the future holds for Primitive Plus.  In addition to the launch on Xbox, I’ll still be adding new content that I’ve teased on my Twitter.  Here’s what you can expect once we get to a ‘stable release’

  • Yurt – A placeable tent that you can put structures in!?!?!
  • Rope Bridge – Compliment your adventures in the Redwoods Biome!
  • Cooking Recipes – There’s more in store for all you primitive chefs!
  • Trapping Expansion – More traps to catch the deadly predators on the island
  • Custom Windows – Custom window styles that fit the P+ structure tiers
  • Behemoth Gates – When regular sized gates aren’t enough

These are just a few things that will be coming relatively soon!  I have some larger scale ideas and primitive systems that I’m working on that I won’t say just yet :)  Be sure to keep sending in your suggestions and feedback on what you like and don’t like!  I want to thank all of the Primitive Plus fans for holding tight and also those who are trying it out for the first time.

I will be sure to keep you updated with my progress on bug fixes and new things coming down the pipeline.  I can’t thank you enough for your patience and feedback!  The hotfix above will be in your hands in a few days – until then…… Cheers!



All the best,

Wildcard Jat and the ARK: Survival Evolved Team!
