Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Studio Wildcard has partnered with Epic Games to bring the full power of Unreal Engine 4 tools and development resources to the ARK: Survival Evolved modding community with one of the first custom mod editors.
Anyone that has purchased ARK: Survival Evolved, can immediately start modding and sharing their creations with the rest of the community using Steam Workshop.
If you’re new to modding, don’t worry. There is a “How to Mod” tutorial and the Unreal Engine ARK Modding Forum for support. Also, Epic Games and Studio Wildcard will be hosting a Twitch livestream to give a walkthrough of the ARK: Survival Evolved modding process this Thursday, July 9 at 2:00PM ET.
Here’s who will be attending the livestream:
- Chance Ivey – Community Manager, Epic Games
- Alexander Paschall – Engine Support Tech, Epic Games
- Jesse Rapczak – Co-Founder & Co-Creative Director, Studio Wildcard
As we’ve opened up the world of ARK to everyone, we’ve been seriously on the edge of our seats with anticipation. The amazing gameplay ideas lighting up the forum conversations can be turned into reality right away. The UE4 mod tools that we’re providing are phenomenal, and we can’t wait to see the limitless creativity of our fans come to life in fantastic new ways.
