It has been on the ‘A little further out‘ list of the developers of ARK: Survival Evolved for a while: dropped item meshes. As the weeks are progressing, more and more meshes are created. Since a lot of them are already finished, we wanted to show them to you in a little preview. The item meshes can all be found in the devkit, but for those that simply like pictures, check them out below:
From left to right (and bottom to top): tranq arrows (green), stone arrow, C4 ammo, rifle ammo, pistol ammo, metal arrows, shotgun shells, simple bullets, tranq dart, sniper bullets and rocket ammo.
From left to right (back row): metal ore, wood, stone and hide
From left to right (front row): obsidian, thatch, fiber and flint
From left to right: cloth armor, chitin armor, hide armor, flak armor and scuba gear
Currently the drops for structures are just depending on their materials. Maybe we will get specific drops for each structure, but for now this is already pretty awesome. Again, from left to right (and bottom to top): thatch structures, metal structures, wood structures and stone structures.
From left to right (back row): cooked meat, raw meat, spoiled meat, cooked prime meat, raw prime meat, meat jerky, and prime meat jerky
From left to right (front row): rockarrot, citronal, longrass, savoroot (not poop!), seeds, and berries
From left to right: cementing paste, electronics, charcoal, gunpowder, polymer and sparkpowder.
This picture includes gasoline, oil, silica pearls, crystal and chitin.
Potions and ingredients
This picture includes stimulants, narcotics, rare flowers and rare mushrooms.
From left to right (back row): cosmetic bag (something upcoming??), dye and parachute.
From left to right (front row): soup, water jar, waterskin, saddle (generic)
From left to right: blood extraction syringe, blood pack and notes.
And to give you all a better understanding of how big the drops will be approximately, here is a picture of a dodo next to some dropped items. The biggest drops at this point are the arrows (in length) and the oil barrel (in height).
We hope that you enjoy these previews. When we come across other items, dinos or anything useful in the development kit, we will be sure to post it! So stay tuned.
