Redwood Biome and Snow Biome Update!

Hey Survivors!

Earlier this month in a Community Crunch we announced that later on we would be making some very large biome changes to The Island. Part of this change would be introducing a new zone, known as the Redwood Forest and also slightly expanding the size of the Snow Biome.

This is a map you can use to help identify the areas where The Island will receive some changes and it’s makeover.

The blue area represents the new size of the Snow Biome. The orange area represents the location of the new Redwood Biome and the green-area represents part of the Swamp that is also being turned into Redwood.

Something we will always try to avoid is making drastic map changes as we know it can be unsettling for players to have to be concerned about relocating their base, however in some cases we have to go ahead and make those changes for the development of the game. We apologize if this does cause any inconvenience and we really hope you enjoy the upcoming biome changes!

Whilst we prepare for launching the new biomes we said we’d be updating the in-game environment with 3D Markers to help indicate areas that will be undergoing change. These markers will be brought into the game on Wednesday and...
Well it seams we have an other new game in the works within the farming theme.
The project only seams to be 2 weeks old and is going to be listed as a kickstart project.

Welcome on Pro Farm Manager, the Farming management PC game!

Pro Farm Manager is a virtual simulation/management oriented game : as a player you will be managing your own virtual/3D farm! You’ve always wanted to be a cereal farmer, goat or livestock breeder? Pro Farm Manager is your game!

There are two game modes to choose from : Single player – you play alone and you can fast forward time; Multiplayers – You interact with and get help from other players online while working on the farm, buying and selling equipment and livestock, or achieving goals/missions.

To create your own virtual farm, you have over 500 hectares of land at your disposal, on which you can place buildings, plots, roads, vegetation, etc… You can choose from various type of climate and landscaping, as well as weather effects (sun, rain, wind, snow, night, etc…) according to the country in which you decide to build your farm (5 countries available for the time being).

You can choose from 5 different types of farm animals, cattle, pigs, goats, sheep, poultry for eggs and meat production, as well as genetics and breeding stock. Your job is to take care of them by feeding, watering, treating, removing manure and so on…

On the crops...
It’s Ced here, and it’s been an exciting few months as we’ve been amazed by the sheer creativity and ingenuity of the modding community. We’ve had the pleasure of experiencing survival on the moon, building massive race tracks, having epic battles in tribe warfare, and enjoying some fantastic views on many of the breath-taking maps that were submitted to our second mod contest. We are blown away by the talent of the modding community and are forever grateful for the efforts of those who bring these custom experiences to all ARK players worldwide - and soon Xbox.

It was no easy feat to pick the winning entries for this mod contest due to growth of the talent level and understanding of the development kit. We are excited for the future of modding and look forward to seeing what the community has in store for the future!

Instead of the traditional workshop spotlight this week, I will be doing a video review of each of the winners in preparation for next week’s community crunch. Subscribe to our YouTube workshop channel if you’d rather not wait to see all of the finished videos in next week’s community crunch. Without further ado, here are the winners!

Hello everybody,
the work on the 0.13 is slowly getting to the final phase and hence it feels like a good time to give an overview of actual multiplayer changes that have been implemented over past couple of weeks.

This is a recap and extension of a FFF post[www.factorio.com] that mentioned the Multiplayer improvements while there were in progress.
Browsing games
Probably the biggest change is implementation of a service that holds available Multiplayer games. We call this service Multiplayer Matching Server even though the name doesn't precisely describe what it does.

This service greatly simplifies the game discovery and connectability. Player hosting the game (or a headless server) will simply publish the game to the Multiplayer Matching Server. This makes the game available to other players via the Browse Games Gui. This will make the clumsy connecting directly to the server pretty much obsolete (though the functionality stays).

As mentioned earlier there are quite a few little features to make the user experience smooth. Just to recap:
  • Games can be created as publicly listed / unlisted / LAN only
  • LAN supports automatic discovery without internet connection
  • Games can be protected by password.
  • Browse Games Gui supports searching in name of the game / description / tags.
  • Browse Games Gui shows some basic game information (game length, player names,...
This week's update brings you several improvements for modders that we've merged from our community on GitHub, plus more bugfixes. From Tyrsis we have production API changes and terminal changes, so modders can now create their own terminal interfaces such as buttons, sliders, etc. Another addition is Malware's Ship Data update and remote control fixes that makes Coop mode work when a conveyor block (or any block that doesn't have an owner) is between the master and slave assemblers. And last but not least, we have Rexxar's projector ModAPI changes which have added more ModAPI interface to the projection API.
Our GitHub source code has also been updated.
Many thanks to our entire community for helping us develop the game and raise the bar for modding possibilities. We're simply in awe of all the mods and creations you guys publish on the Workshop :)
