ARK gets modding support, internal documentation to follow

    
32

Do you like ARK: Survival Evolved? Do you like modding? If you answered yes, I’ve got good news in the form of the ARK’s newly launched dev kit. It’s basically a streamlined version of the Unreal Engine 4 editor, and Studio Wildcard says that it can be used to make mods and maps, which can then be uploaded to Steam’s Workshop for use by the ARK community.

The firm has released a tutorial, and co-creative director Jessie Rapczak tells Gamasutra that the dev kit will enable everything from custom modes to new creatures to new items. Studio Wildcard also intends to make its internal documentation available to modders.

ARK has sold over a million copies since its early access client debuted on June 2nd.

F4steddy  Kepler, GTX 660, does not really cut it. I run my 660 in 1600×900 mode, on medium. Works ok, runs ok. UE4 is optimized and needs Maxwell architecture, try a 770 or better GPU. The CPU hardly matters, except when loading, that is the only time hyperthreading is engaged.

cald Ket_Viliano BrianSleider Nreff Armsbend Are you looking at Steam as a customer, or as a developer?

BrianSleider Ket_Viliano Nreff Armsbend  You are a total troll. I have taken business and marketing and econ classes, and what I learned was how to negotiate, and never to just accept an offer. Tp be honest, you replies have been pretentious and disrespectful, with no regard for decency in communication. Grow up. You really come across like some kind of snotty sophomore in High School.

Ket_Viliano BrianSleider Nreff Armsbend You clearly have no understanding of how Markets work. 

I understand your position, it is just wrong. Take an econ class.

F4steddy TIs a hell of a lot better than it was when it first launched… but if you have a low end PC and still have issues start the game with the -sm4 command in steam and pop your fps will double but you will be without some of the nice lighting effects and other things.

F4steddy I’m not entirely sure how true that is, but I do have to turn down the settings in ARK quite a bit on my rig (and my FPS still isn’t great), and it (my rig) can play The Witcher 3 comfortably without compromising visual quality.

I would play if they fixed optimization setting. All I’ve heard is that you have to have a super gaming computer to run it at a solid FPS. :( I just wanna live with dinosaurs…
