Patch v242 brings us a lot of new additions; from big creatures to small adjustments such as following distance! We’ve put the most important things for you in a single post, so you will be fully prepared for the new patch! Diplodocus First of all, the Diplodocus. This creature is so friendly, that it will do 0 damage to everything around it (yes, you read that right). In case you want to have a Diplodocus of your own, make sure to always have another creature available that can guard it. Even a tamed Diplodocus will not be able to do any damage to other creaturesRead More →


A while back, we’ve posted information on the upcoming biome changes (in case you missed it, you can find it here). One of the things that is being introduced, is the Redwood Forest. To give a preview of what is to come, you can look at the picture below. If you ask us, the Redwood Forest will bring a lot more of a ‘prehistoric’ feeling to part of the island, with humongous trees that make even a Rex look small. 3D Markers Another thing that we talked about with the biome changes, are 3d markers to indicate the safe and “move-out-of” locations on the map.Read More →

The next patch (v241) will include some changes to the biomes on the island. There was an old biome map released a while back, but this one is not up to date anymore. Most of the changes have now been made and we are able to show you the actual new biome map. Keep in mind that biome changes include changes in terrain. This means that if you currently reside in one of the affected areas, it’s best to relocate before the patch hits (around May 30th), as there is a chance that you will lose your base otherwise. What’s happening The old Snow Biome has receivedRead More →

Even more mysteries today, as Jat released the most cryptic post ever. An image was shown, with the caption “???????????????????” and the same for the description. Has Jat finally gone insane due to stress and workload at Wildcard? Or are we getting more information on one of the previous inhabitants of the Island? What do you think?Read More →

As of v235, ARK now supports user-created localizations and custom fonts! How to localize ARK yourself 1. In the Windows game, you’ll find a new app here: \Tools\LocalizationManager\LocalizationManager.exe Run it, check the languages you wish to work on, and then click ArchiveFiles->XLS to generate an excel spreadsheet of all the localizations (separated by Tabs if you wanna work on more than one language at a time). This export process takes a couple minutes, so give it time and it will eventually say “completed” on the status panel. Then you can upload that XLS to Google Docs or whatnot for easy group editing. 2. When you’re ready toRead More →
