Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!
Code of Conduct Changes!
The Enforcement Team are back again with another important notice regarding the Code of Conduct. We’d like to make Official Players aware of the following 3 revisions:
Small Tribe Server Specific Rules
> No Teaming – to maintain the intent and spirit of the small tribe servers, players are not permitted to form informal alliances between tribes. This includes such things as:
Joint raids against one or more tribes (including cross-server)
Sharing tame breeding lines between tribes
Sharing tames between tribes
Moving characters back and forth between multiple tribes
Using non-tribemember bodies to store and transport items
Bringing players from multiple tribes into a Boss Fight
> Do not attempt to circumvent the six member limit
PvE Specific Griefing
Intentionally filling the server tame limit via spamming tames and/or rafts
Community Livestream Round-Up!
On June 18th we had our fourth 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.
The stream began with a round-up of Extinction related information that was released following the Extinction trailer. Mod Community Manager ZenRowe then showcased eco’s Mods. These mods are part of the Sponsored Mod Program and are definitely worth checking out! eco is well known in the unofficial community for her decorative and RP mods.
Our community guest this week was xRowCat! Rowena Frenzel is a freelance 3D artist who created the Brachiosaurus Costume, Stygimoloch Costume, and Styracosaurus Costume for the ARKaeology Event. She chatted about the workflow on these creature skins and taught us the process of creating 3D art.
We are 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: [email protected]
