Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! 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! Let's get started with some news. Pre-Orders and Limited Collector’s Edition! In case you missed our E3 news, ARK has it's official release date, August 8, 2017! Along with our official release comes the opportunity to pre-order and get yourself a limited collector's edition of ARK, which comes with a whole bunch of goodies shown in the picture above. Read more at the link below: ARK: Evolution Event Weekend! Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special extended Evolution Event for the release of Ragnarok! It's already live now and will remain active until Monday the 19th at 12PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 1.5x Harvesting Rate 1.5x Taming Rate 1.5x EXP Rate Reminder: this 1.5x bonus is on top of the 2x rates that are now standard on our official servers! Sponsored Mod Program Update! When we initiated the Sponsored Mod Program, we hoped to bring more free content to console and PC players alike. We understand how important modding is to the gaming community and the overall health of a game. The history of modding in game development goes back to the 1980's and the first development kit for modding, The Boulder Dash Construction Kit, was released around the same time. While modding has always been popular, some see modders as the unsung heroes of video game development. Recognition for modding and the modders who create content for the game in the past has mostly been few and far between. That's why it's exciting to release content, like Ragnarok, so content creators are recognized and valued for their efforts. The Ragnarok team has handled the transition from sponsored mod to official content like pros! There's an added expectation and increased pressure when you become official content for the game. Not to mention, getting a PC mod optimized and running on a console is no easy feat. Collaboration between professional developers and hobbyist is something the gaming industry could benefit from in this day and age. This partnership will often increase the overall quality of mods which, in turn, helps the developers as well. When game developers support high-quality mods for a game, it means there is no loser. The modders win, the consumers win, and the developers win. I know the Ragnarok team is excited with this recent launch and we look forward to bringing you more content in the future! Speaking of new content, we've found another talented modder that we are looking forward to bringing into the Sponsored Mod Program. Many of you may know Impulse, a seasoned modder for ARK. Even if you don't know him, you may be using a mod he's an author of. Ever heard of the Capitalism series of mods? If not, you should go check it out! The Capitalism series is a collection of mods that adds a currency system, among other things. You can then use that currency to do a host of things like offer bounties for players or complete trades. More recently, Impulse has surprised us all with his latest mod, PG Role Selector. This mod allows admins to configure roles which restrict players to a specific set of engrams. We see this being particularly popular with the ARK roleplay community. Be sure to look out for Workshop Wednesday, where I'll be sharing more of the things that are going on behind the scenes of the Sponsored Mod Program. Until then! - Wildcard Ced Community Contests! Player Procedurally Generated Maps! The Procedurally Generated Map system allows players to make their own ARK maps by determining a myriad of landscape options from the heights of mountains, depths of valleys, and the number of lakes, rivers or oceans, to the kinds of each biome they want, and more! Let's check out the entries for this weeks contest! This week's contest winner is... roguewolf!

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: Three Categories 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!
