ARK: Survival Evolved Patch 184.0 – Patchnotes

These are the changes of ARK: Survival Evolved’s Patch 184.0, grouped into categories for clarity. If not otherwise indicated, they’re quoted from the relevant Steam Thread.

Dino Changes

  • You can, ahem, no longer pickup the Broodmother with flyers 😉

Game Changes

  • Players can now choose to display chat as [CharacterName][TribeName]:Chat (the new default) or [SteamName[CharacterName]:Chat
  • Improved the look of Stone Materials underground, improved metal Materials
  • Added “Craft All” button that will craft-queue as many instances of a blueprint/engram as the inventory has resources for.
  • The absolute max inventory limit of 200 items has been raised to 300, and is now respected to avoid losing items when transferring between inventories
  • Blueprints can no longer stack (wasn’t intended to). any that are currently stacked will still be stacked, you won’t lose any, but you can’t re-stack them.
  • 40second cooldown on bloodpack usage, 30 minute spoiling time time (in a fridge it’s 100x of course)
  • Gates are now considered “core” structures and thus you can’t build next to “enemy” gates anymore


  • ARK Dev Kit Game Data Override: Create your own survival game with total capability to override the core “gamedata” of ARK in your mod: everything can then be changed, from Engrams to Items to Character States to Dossiers.
  • Mod makers can now override the minimap and spawn regions
  • Update ARK Dev Kit to include latest code & content, as well as improved built-in-Editor Steam Workshop Uploader
  • Mods can now force the player to spawn-in rather than displaying the respawn map


  • Finally fixed the last erroneous “No Nearby Foundation” issue when trying to build walls etc. Thanks PhysX 😛
  • Metal Spike Walls now have correct structure damage type (weak metal rather than “wood”), and have correct scaled destruction mesh


  • Minor client GPU performance improvement
