ARK Developer Stream Tomorrow!

https://www.twitch.tv/survivetheark

Tomorrow at 1 PM Pacific Time (March 5th), members of the ARK development team will be hosting a Developer Livestream on our Twitch channel![www.twitch.tv]

Our Community-focused livestreams went over well with the community so we decided to restructure slightly to bring even more members of our team into the mix! We invite you to join us from our Seattle office as we discuss the latest developments with ARK.

In this stream we will be showcasing and discussing our biggest addition and change to the game: the Structures Plus and Kibble rework.



We'll also be answering questions from you--the community--in a live form Digest. We invite you to leave your ARK or development related questions in the comment section below and we will be selecting an assortment of your questions to answer live on stream.

The developers on-camera this stream will be:

Cedric: Host, Gameplay Programmer
Chris: Lead Programmer & Lead Designer
Colin: Senior Producer
Jen: Community Manager

We look forward to seeing you all on our Twitch channel tomorrow!

Mod Community Updates!

We're bringing in two new projects to the Sponsored Mod Program this month, and don't forget that we have already started another round of applications for the sponsored mod program. You'll be able to submit an application until April 5th. So polish up those design documents and send them in. We love seeing the amazing projects everyone is working on.

First up we have Additional Lighting by ReinerSCT. This mod adds a plethora of new lighting options of different colors, styles, and configurations. Ever wanted to make your own disco room, or set up a complex lighting system for your over-the-top castle? This mod will let you do it!

We're also happy to bring in the Play as Dino mod by Finntastic. Does anybody else ever use the old mantra "Don't just hunt the raptor... Be the raptor"? No? Just me? Either way, with this mod you can! The author has a lot of cool systems being worked on for this mod and we're happy to provide some support for them.

Happy Modding!

Mod Sponsorship Applications Opening!

Get your mods ready, sponsorship program applications open again on Friday! We will also be announcing a couple of new sponsored projects next week!

We're making some adjustments to what has been our focus for sponsored projects. Going forward we will be looking at more small scope projects as well, instead of only the large scope projects like we have been up to this point. A result of this adjustment is that you will begin to see more projects with shorter-term sponsorship's making their way into the program and, by proxy, a somewhat higher rotation rate leading to more opportunities.

We want to encourage everyone, no matter the scale of your projects, to apply for sponsorship during each application period. Even if a project isn't selected during a given application period it helps me to keep a finger on the pulse of everyone that's interested in being sponsored and seeing how your projects and plans develop.
