Upcoming ARK:Survival Evolved V248

Wildcard Studios have been working hard to provide new and exciting new content after their controversial Scorched Earth DLC. The expected release date for this new update is the 10th October 2016 now the 18th October to allow for further testing.

Some of their patch notes are contained below.

Upcoming Version: v248.0
– Dual wield weapons while riding your dinos.
– New Feature introduced: Procedurally generated ARK’s.
– New Mechanic introduced: Breeding Part3: Mutations and Family trees
– New Mechanic introduced: Exploring Notes
– New Mechanic: Explorer Notes
– New Structure: Dynamic-Length Bridges
– New Dino: Kaprosuchus!
– New Dino: Diplocalus!
– New Dino: Chalicotherium!
– New Dino: Megalosaurus!
– Render batching optimization for ~20% perf in structure-heavy areas

Procedurally Generated ARK System

The most exciting and interesting of the features is the ability for ARK to randomly generally procedural ARK’s. This feature is available in a number of other games including Space Engineers and Rust and will bring a whole new element to exploring the island.

Biomes and resources will all randomly populate throughout the island to provide a unique experience every time. No server will ever be the same and will require exploration to progress instead of using existing knowledge of the premade ARK island and knowing where everything is preset.

Whilst a lot of information is currently not available for this feature as soon as we hear more we will be letting you know and of course when the update is released that provides this feature we will implement the required changes as quickly as possible to keep gaming with all the features you require.

Ark: Fear Evolved 2

ast year you was all tasked with hunting down to defeat the legendary Dodorex, with the seasonal holiday survival event, Fear Evolved. This year you have an even bigger task. Test your skills and courage to track down and hunt the DodoWyvern across the Scorched Earth map.

During the event you can find and collect new cosmetic and costume appearances, while back on the Island map you will get the ability to tame snakes and encounter Rabid Dire Wolves and Vampire Bats! But that is not all! Should you get infected by one of these creatures you have the chance to acquire the vampirism or lycanthropy, which will transform you into incredible monsters and gain you new powers. Be it immesne strenght, speed, sight or gliding of a Vampire or the Werewolf triggered by moonlight.

The map contains six desert style biomes including dunes, high deserts, mountains, canyons, badlands and oasis. Each one has its own style and ecosystem. Along your travels you find ruins, geysers or even ancient cave systems to explore.

With the DLC comes an a new feature to the entire ARK series. The ability to cluster your ARK: Survival Evolved servers regardless of maps into one cluster group. With this feature enabled you can then travel between these servers at ease with your character. No more leveling up your character on each map!

Ark Server Tools

Our ARK Server Tools make managing your Ark:Survival Evolved servers so much easier. We are proud to have been able to update the TCAdmin control panel for ARK with brand new features this month.

Ark Mod Updater
This tool was released earlier in the month and we have already had fantastic feedback regarding this tool. It allows you to update your mods easily without the need for FTP or Ark Remote. Simply by adding your Active mods to configuration file.

Manual Ark Mod Updater *NEW*
This update to the Ark Mod Updater tool is fantastic. Instead of updating all the mods in one go you might have just one or two mods that require updates. Using the manual tool reduces the time your server is offline by specifically entering the ModID’s you require updating. You can do this one mod at a time, which is great for those who have lots of mods and only one or two need updating.

Ever wanted to manage the Ark Server via the control panel? Well now you can with select commands being useable from the control panel. Broadcast messages to the server, change the MOTD or even save the world.

Save World *NEW*
Ever wanted to ensure the server had saved before an update? Well with this new icon the saveworld command is issued and a save is completed. Very handy if you do not wish to join the server just to save.

Don’t have a server with us? Transfer your server today with our Easy Transfer service and see how easy managing your server really is!
