Small Tribes Rules Update A couple of weeks back, we announced that we would be honing the ruleset for Small Tribes servers along with implementing some teaming report requirements in order to make our Enforcement Team’s investigative process more efficient:

The spirit of Small Tribes has always been to give players the opportunity to experience a tight group dynamic that is void of the scale and diplomacy of Official. We recognize it’s time to implement change in order to preserve the original concept--one we were hyped about along with our community!

Community Crunch 257: LiveOps Update, New Sponsored Mods, and more!

We consulted with our enforcement team and had some much-appreciated talks with a large number of players from the Small Tribes community in order to hone our approach to improving quality of life and enforcement on these servers. So, without further ado, let’s get to it!

Rules Overview One of the most impactful changes will be considering tribes benefitting from another tribe’s defenses as teaming. We are giving 4 weeks notice (9th April 2021) before the enforcement team will act on these specific rules in order to provide tribes time to relocate or otherwise adjust defenses.

We’re also clarifying that open-world PvP is okay. The rules will get into the nitty gritty, but essentially, if it’s out in the open and away from a base and doesn’t include a FOB or a bunch of dinos that can be considered raiding meta dinos eg: box build racers etc, it’s fair game to PvP freely and grab those kits. We want players to be able to have spontaneous fun in the open world without keeping tabs on who may randomly show up to join in.

Another impactful clarification is: Bases in different locations are open to being attacked by different tribes simultaneously. In essence, don’t build whatcha can't defend.

Teaming ticket guidelines It’s impossible for the enforcement team to always join a server and investigate teaming reports live. Sometimes it happens and it’s great but we’d like to improve on the efficiency of investigations, especially retroactive enforcement action after the fact if the team is unable to check it out live and in the moment.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of teaming reports only include a screenshot of tribelogs and this is very rarely sufficient evidence for the enforcement team to take action.

We’ve put together a guide on what will assist you and the enforcement team in a more thorough investigation and swift enforcement action.

Video should include
short overview of action going on
- Indicate the relative position of associated bases/FOBs
- Please show who owns them (use spyglass)
- If possible, try to show where the action is taking place (players/dinos)
spyglass of people names
- should show shortly before or after they teamed
for longer videos
- include timestamps where stuff can be seen
- Tribe names and player names must be included in the videos
- Videos should be submitted via a Youtube link (see help article) here[]
Screenshots/videos of tribe logs is not sufficient evidence for action in the vast majority of cases.

More Severe Enforcement Action: Another change of note that works in harmony with more thorough submissions of evidence is the severity of enforcement action for certain cases. Enforcement will be looking at more frequently wiping “main” bases of offenders rather than focusing the FOB and player bans (those things will continue to happen too though!) Please be aware and take this as a heads up ;)

The full updated rules can be found here[]
Teaming ticket guide can be found here[]

This round of changes may require further iteration but we consider some ongoing tweaking and potential growing pains worth it in order to provide a better experience for Smalls players in the long term. Looking forward to your feedback as we gauge how this plays out!

Fan Content Guidelines

ARK content creators are a large part of the core of the ARK community. Whether you share screenshots you take in-game, create videos of your experiences, stream, or make fan art, you are the force helping to create connections and communities along with driving millions of views and viewing hours of ARK content across social media platforms and streaming sites. Sometimes knowing what is fair to use and in what context it can be used may be a little confusing.

Recently, we’ve been approached in regards to what type of content you can create and share without concerns that you’re infringing on the IP. So, to make this simple we've created a page for ARK fans to help bridge the gap and understand what’s fair game.

Steam Community :: ARK: Survival Evolved
ARK: Survival Evolved - As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, you must hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements. Use your cunning and resources to kill or tame & breed the leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land, and team up with or prey on hundreds of other players to survive, dominate... and escape!Dinosaurs, Creatures, & Breeding! -- over 100+ creatures can be tamed using a challenging capture-&-affinity process, involving weakening a feral creature to knock it unconscious, and then nursing it back to health with appropriate food. Once tamed, you can issue commands to your tames, which it may follow depending on how well you’ve tamed and trained it. Tames, which can continue to level-up and consume food, can also carry Inventory and Equipment such as Armor, carry prey back to your settlement depending on their strength, and larger tames can be ridden and directly controlled! Fly a Pterodactyl over the snow-capped mountains, lift allies over enemy walls, race through the jungle with a pack of Raptors, tromp through an enemy base along a gigantic brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex! Take part in a dynamic ecosystem life-cycle with its own predator & prey hierarchies, where you are just one creature among many species struggling for dominance and survival. Tames can also be mated with the opposite gender, to selectively breed successive generations using a trait system based on recombinant genetic inheritance. This process includes both egg-based incubation and mammalian gestation lifecycles! Or put more simply, raise babies!You must eat and drink to survive, with different kinds of plants & meat having different nutritional properties, including human meat. Ensuring a supply of fresh water to your home and inventory is a pressing concern. All physical actions come at a cost of food and water, long-distance travel is fraught with subsistence peril! Inventory weight makes you move slower, and the day/night cycle along with randomized weather patterns add another layer of challenge by altering the temperature of the environment, causing you to hunger or thirst more quickly. Build a fire or shelter, and craft a large variety of customizable clothing & armors, to help protect yourself against locational damage & extreme temperatures using the dynamic indoor/outdoor insulation calculation system! By chopping down forests full of trees and mining metal and other precious resources, you can craft the parts to build massive multi-leveled structures composed of complex snap-linked parts, including ramps, beams, pillars, windows, doors, gates, remote gates, trapdoors, water pipes, faucets, generators, wires and all manner of electrical devices, and ladders among many other types. Structures have a load system to fall apart if enough support has been destroyed, so reinforcing your buildings is important. All structures and items can be painted to customize the look of your home, as well as placing dynamically per-pixel paintable signs, textual billboards, and other decorative objects. Shelter reduces the extremes of weather and provides security for yourself and your stash! Weapons, clothing & armor gear can also be painted to express your own visual style.Pick seeds from the wild vegetation around you, plant them in plots that you lay down, water them and nurture them with fertilizer (everything poops after consuming calories, which can then be composted, and some fertilizer is better than others). Tend to your crops and they will grow to produce delicious and rare fruits, which can also be used to cook a plethora of logical recipes and make useful tonics! Explore to find the rarest of plant seeds that have the most powerful properties! Vegetarians & vegans can flourish, and it will be possible to master and conquer the ARK in a non-violent manner!By bringing sufficient rare sacrificial items to special Summon locations, you can capture the attention of the one of the ARK’s god-like mythical creatures, who will arrive for battle. These gargantuan monstrosities provide an end-game goal for the most experienced groups of players and their armies of tames, and will yield extremely valuable progression items if they are defeated.Create a Tribe and add your friends to it, and all your tames can be commanded by and allied to anyone in your Tribe. Your Tribe will also be able to respawn at any of your home spawn points. Promote members to Tribe Admins to reduce the burden of management. Distribute key items and pass-codes to provide access your shared village!All items are crafted from Blueprints that have variable statistics and qualities, and require corresponding resources. More remote and harsh locales across the ARK tend to have better resources, including the tallest mountains, darkest caves, and depths of the ocean! Level-Up your player character by gaining experience through performance actions, Level-Up your tames, and learn new "Engrams" to be able to craft Items from memory without the use of blueprints, even if you die! Customize the underlying physical look of your character with hair, eye, and skin tones, along with an array of body proportion modifiers. As you explore the vast ARK, you'll find clues left by other Survivors who have made the ARK their home in ages past, in the form of collectible detailed 3D "Explorer Notes". By uncovering all of these, you can begin to piece together the true nature of the ARK, and discover its purpose!Everything you craft has durability and will wear-out from extended use if not repaired, and when you leave the game, your character remains sleeping in the persistent world. Your inventory physically exists in boxes or on your character in the world. Everything can be looted & stolen, so to achieve security you must build-up, team-up, or have tames to guard your stash. Death is permanent, and you can even knock out, capture, and force-feed other players to use them for your own purposes, such as extracting their blood to for transfusions, harvesting their fecal matter to use as fertilizer, or using them as food for your carnivorous tames!The mysterious ARK is a formidable and imposing environment, composed of many natural and unnatural structures, above-ground, below-ground, and underwater. By fully exploring its secrets, you’ll find the most exotic procedurally randomized creatures and rare blueprints. Also to be found are Explorer Notes that are dynamically updated into the game, written by previous human denizens of the ARK from across the millennia, creatively detailing the creatures and backstory of the ARK and its creatures. Fully develop your in-game ARK-map through exploration, write custom points of interest onto it, and craft a Compass or GPS coordinates to aid exploring with other players, whom you can communicate with via proximity text & voice chat, or long-distance radio. Construct & draw in-game signs for other players to help them or lead them astray... And yet.. how do you ultimately challenge the Creators and Conquer the ARK? A definitive end-game is planned.On the 100+ player servers, your character, everything you built, and your tames, stay in-game even when you leave. You can even physically travel your character and items between the network of ARK's by accessing the Obelisks and uploading (or downloading) your data from the Steam Economy! A galaxy of ARKs, each slightly different than the previous, to leave your mark on and conquer, one at a time -- special official ARKs will be unveiled on the World-map for limited times in singular themed events with corresponding limited-run items! Furthermore, you can now design or randomize your own unique 'Procedurally Generated ARKs', for infinite replayability and endless surprises.You can play single-player local games, and bring your character and items between unofficial player-hosted servers, back and forth from singleplayer to multiplayer. Mod the game, with full Steam Workshop support and customized Unreal Engine 4 editor. See how we built our ARK using our maps and assets as an example. Host your own server and configure your ARK precisely to your liking. We want to see what you create!The over-the-top hyper real imagery of the ARK its creatures is brought to expressive life using a highly-customized Unreal Engine 4, with fully dynamic lighting & global illumination, weather systems (rain, fog, snow, etc) & true-to-life volumetric cloud simulation, and the latest in advanced DirectX11 and DirectX12 rendering techniques.
