The ARK Modding contest is back! Are you excited about two big announcements for the modding community? The development team has just brought these announcements to the whole community. Let’s find out what they are and return to the modding contest for more prizes! Before diving into the announcements, you should take a look at the picture below and try to take a guess on what this mysterious creature is! It will be released in ARK: Survival Evolved in the forthcoming time!
Mod Community Announcements
There are two big announcements for the modding community. First of all, the developers are making some alterations to the sponsored mod program. Before that, it was such a big challenge for the developers to consider the potential candidate projects because they would have to polish the workshop, discords, and forums. The projects can only be seen in their current public state and what info that the mod author picked to include. Instead, the development team will move to another system that is much more structured.
Starting on September 1st, you are able to apply for sponsorship by filling out this application. By this way, the developers can pay attention to the projects that are interested and ready for the sponsorship. The mod authors will be enabled to give out some extra information about where they will take their project.
The developers will move the program to a more regular pattern. Five weeks will be a period of time for the entry, beginning in the months of January, March, May, July, and September at which point there will be several slots that are available in the program. The sponsorships periods will be restricted at a year, however, you can still apply for the sponsorship again after that one year.
