Ark: Survival Evolved rolls out Unreal Engine 4 mod support, giving the game full steam workshop support and all the the modding support that the Unreal Engine 4 's mod tools can provide. 

The Ark Dev Kit is a version of the Unreal Engine 4 Editor which will allow modders to easily create and share mods. Whether your mod ideas are for a new weapon, structures, changing the game's AI or simply just creating a new map the Ark Dev Kit has you covered. 

  

"The Ark Dev Kit is a simplified version of the Unreal Engine 4 Editor specifically compiled to streamline the process of creating Mods & Maps for the Unreal Engine 4 game Ark: Survival Evolved, and to upload them directly to Steam Workshop for other users to download and play,"

"does contain all of our editable source art for the game, as well as our editable maps and blueprint classes."

Right now you can discuss game modding on the Ark: Survival Instinct's modding Forums, where the dev promises to provide the community with helpful guides and exchange tips and tricks for working with the game. 

 

"We'll have more tutorials in the upcoming days about how the specific features of Ark level design are put together, but for now, feel free to explore and modify 'TheIsland' map to poke around at how things work, including the stream sublevels and the zone area spawners,"

"If you have any questions about the Mod Tools, feel free to post on this Forum. We encourage intrepid mod makers to help each other out here, the more the community can collaborate to build exciting new content, the better it’s going to be. Stay tuned to our Steam page, Twitter feed, and here for more information on upcoming ARK modding news, including a major initiative to mobilize the mod community that will be announced soon!"

 

For survival games like Survival and minecraft before it, game mods have proved to be the things that greatly extend both player interest and could propel this game from an Indie Success to a full on gaming juggernaut.

While the extent of what modders will be able to achieve with Ark: Survival Evolved is unclear at this point, I wonder how long it will take until gun toting Dinosaurs become a reality.

 

You can join the discussion on Ark: Survival Evolved's modding tools on the OC3D Forums.

Too bad its so unoptimized in its current state. Seems fun, from what I've seen, but you need a fairly high end rig to run it.Quote

Or Rust which has been in Pre-Alpha stage for what feels like 5 years or more even though iirc it was 2013 when it was put on the Early Access list.

The annoying thing about Rust is they took most of the good things like weapon attachments out of it, when they moved to this new version.



I have not tried Ark: Survival but I have seen some videos from Youalwayswin on youtube and it does look a good game, and one I might look at in a few months.

I really think the Early Access should have a rule in it, that games have to be completed within a certain time frame unless the rule is already in and I have not seen it.Quote
