ARK: Survival Evolved Patch 209

As always sorted and will be updated 🙂 If not otherwise indicated, they’re quoted from the relevant Steam Thread.


  •  Pachy will now collide with each other, and their torpor inducement has been buffed about 20%
  • You can now paint doors again
  • Crash callstacks are now written to text file on disk for better reporting (you can grab them off your remote dedicated server’s hard drive, etc)
  • Applying Painting Templates no longer can consume the durability non-paintbrush items 😉
  • Reduced Assault Rifle Per-Shot Durability cost by 50%


  • Compass is now oriented properly when riding a Dino
  • Rafts can’t starve anymore
  • AI Dinos won’t try to harvest unharvestable resources anymore (i.e. too-large rocks etc)
  • User Config values shouldn’t get clobbered anymore
  • Respawning at Beds on loaded Raft/Platforms will no longer result in spawning at origin
  • Invisible dinos on Rafts/Platforms should be resolved
  • Bronto Rider Platform Driver position is now correct across save-games
  • Fixed a case where Dinos couldn’t harvest resources when attacking
  • Fixed a WeaponAmmo issue
  • Fixed Flyersattachment standing on Rafts/Platforms
  • Eliminated the extra forward-walking on ground of Tamed Flyers after they land
  • Fixed Rafts super-bobbing and flying off into space
  • Fixed Rafts/Brontos getting stuck on their own structures, they can now always move properly.
  • Fixed inability to Claim dinos that had transponders on them
  • Made Ladders not prevent movement (allow collide-and-slide) if they’re not attached to a moving platform (helps resolve some cases of stuck-on-ladders)
  • Removed the “Buggy” (heh heh) Vehicle from the build for now until we resolve the stability of multiple asynchronous PhysX substeps


  •  Added a MaxKillZ as a failsafe in case anyone gets stranded in-orbit (will still resolve any such cases individually)
