Ok, everyone. Some folks have asked what has been going on lately with all of these updates. Well, when the devs send out one update usually 2 or 3 more will follow. ARK devs have worked hard to make the game great for everyone and it shows in these latest 6 updates! These are the biggest I have seen in awhile.

Here are the most recent changes:

Current Version: v240.6
Requires Server Update:
* Fixed the Teleport max Drag Weight to allow Rexes, for real.
* Fixed an issue where unconscious wild passive tames were unable to take damage on PvE.
* Fixed an issue where “meat” would not cook on certain Mods.
v240.5
Requires Server Update:
* Added a 10 second grace period after being released from a Bola in which you can not be Bola’ed again. (with visual feedback of a broken bola hit)
* Giganotosaurus attack knocks down trees now
* Rexes (and anything up to 550 Drag Weight) can now be brought into Boss Arenas
v240.4
Unversioned Hotfix: Fixed Shader Crash that was occurring with some mods.
* Fixed performance issue with Arthropluera physics. Recommend server update for better performance!
* Reduced another 50MB of unused Render Target memory
v240.3
* Reduced about 150MB more of shader memory, also improving loading speed
Requires Server Update:
* Fixed long-term server timing issue (previously, servers at greater than 2 weeks uptime would start getting whacky)
* Fixed Fish Meat taming Dinos at 2x speed, now is about the same rate as regular meat (even though it provides half as much food)
* Fished issue with Gorilla Teleporters potentially getting overlapped
* Made Boss Arenas reset immediately if there are no remaining live players within them
v240.2
* Reduced megapithecus shake
* Fixed Arthropluera offset when riding on elevators
* Fixed crash with unsupported “simple dynamic lighting” render pipeline (that pipeline is fully disabled now, it didn’t appear to gain any performance)
Fixes require Server Update:
* Fish should no longer get knocked back so much when dying
* You can no longer pet dead/unconscious/baby lystros
* Arthropluera can be ridden when swimming, has reduced damage knockback

v240.1
Fixes require Server Update!
* Fixed Bola damaging you on Spike Walls
* Fixed Bola FPV mesh
* Fixed fish meats not cooking in pre-240 campfires and grills
* Fixed harvesting Salmon with Sickle (yields high quantity of Prime Meat)
* Fixed Arthropluera not being able to fit thru Caves/Gates (reduced collision size)

v240.0
* New Creature: Lystrosaurus!
* New Creature: Arthropluera!
* New Creature: Sabertooth Salmon, with Fish Meat!
* New Weapon: Primitive Bolas!
* Megapithecus Arena
* Added Option to Disable Melee Camera Swings (including ‘Harvesting Head Wobble’)
* Tribe Member Rankings with Customizable Per-Rank Privileges

This will come in an optional public beta update later this week!:
– Epic 4K Texture Deployment (all textures at source resolution)! Better texture pool utilization at all Texture setting levels

Game on! -Six
