Coming soon to update 251 and beyond: Tusoteuthis, Megalosaurus, Therizinosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Achatina, Troodonm, updated caves, PS4 support & MORE. Furthermore, Studio Wild Card, the creators of Ark: Survival Evolved had an insane like 30 something hour stream just recently and announced all kinds of goodies. Also, we got our first look at the PS4 version of Ark Survival Evolved, as well as the giant squid, giant snail & more.
Ark Survival Evolved update 251 is going to feature a whole bunch of new stuff
New Dinos: Achatina, Megalosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, & Moschop. New Mechanic: Breeding Phase 3: Random Mutations and Family Trees. At last. Furthermore, all-new Caves on The Island are redesigned with proper shipping-quality layouts and graphics & increased challenge. ALL Cave Structures will necessarily be wiped in this version. Still to come beyond this are the Underwater Caves & Tek Cave.
2 new mythos Explorer Notes for each character have been added. Whistle Ordering Groups – Create groups by class, or specific-dino. The conclusion of Fear Evolved event: the Fear Evolved Structures will be removed, but any earned Cosmetic Items and ZombDodos/ZombWyverns remain. There’s going to be a fix of Procedurally Generated ARK crashes, massive reduction in generation and loading time, fix for PGM’s on Linux Servers and Mac & Linux Clients.
There’s a 20% server performance increase due to massive replication & PhysX efficiency improvement. “Ignore All Whistles” option for Dinos is now available. Per-Alarm-Tripwire Option for Tripwires to not be set-off by Tribemates or Allied Tribes. Defaults to not be set off by Allies. Alpha Mosasaurs now drop quality fishing rods. Preserving Bin now has 24 item slots. Platform Dinos now add 20% of the inventory weight from creatures/players standing on them (previously was 0%). Imprinted baby walking now respects the server’s “AllowAnyoneBabyImprintCuddle” setting. Underwater mines no longer will target wild dinos.
