ARK Survival Ascended Update 1.033.008: Cryopod & Cryofridge Release
In the latest update for ARK Survival Ascended, the Cryopod and Cryofridge have been added as level 50 unlockable Engrams. These new additions bring exciting changes to gameplay and storage capabilities. Let’s take a closer look at the fixes and features introduced in this update.
Cryopod Activation Time
When a Cryofridge is placed, it will now take 5 minutes to activate. This activation time ensures that the Cryofridge is powered and ready to interact with the Cryopod.
Cryopod Release Range
To release a Cryopod, it must be within range of an activated and powered Cryofridge. Currently, the release range is set to 6500. This allows players to strategically plan their Cryopod use and storage.
In PVP mode, Cryopods cannot be released if there are enemies nearby. This range is currently set to 3500, providing a balance between strategic gameplay and fair competition.
Dino Damage Limitation
Dinos cannot be cryopodded if they have been damaged within the last 60 seconds. This fix prevents players from exploiting the Cryopod mechanic to instantly heal their dinos during combat.
Mating Cooldown Correction
Previously, dino mating cooldown did not tick down correctly when the dino was in a Cryopod. This has been addressed, ensuring that mating cooldowns are now accurately tracked and maintained for Cryopodded dinos.
Increased Cryofridge Storage Capacity
The storage capacity of Cryofridges has been increased to 120 slots. This improvement allows players to store more dinos and resources in their Cryofridge, providing greater convenience and organization.
Crafting Queue for Cryopods
Players can now queue up multiple Cryopods for crafting in supply drops and obelisks. Previously, only one Cryopod could be crafted at a time, but this update allows for more efficient crafting and inventory management.
Displaying Cryopodded Dinos
Cryopodded dinos can now be stored and displayed on the newly introduced Display Case structure. This addition enhances player creativity and the ability to showcase their collection of Cryopodded dinos.
Cryopod Configurable Settings
Players can now customize Cryopod settings through the GameUserSettings.ini file under [ServerSettings]. Some of the configurable options include the ability to disable Cryopod enemy checks, allow Cryofridge placement on rafts and saddles, and disable the Cryofridge requirement for releasing cryopodded dinos. These settings provide flexibility and customization options for individual gameplay preferences.
Survival of the Fittest Mod CrossPlatform Release
The popular Survival of the Fittest mod is now available CrossPlatform! Players can select the SOTF option at the main menu to start playing this exciting Battle Royale mod for ARK: Survival Ascended. Up to 60 combatants can engage in a fast-paced, action-packed struggle for survival, leading their Dinosaur Armies into an epic final showdown. The mod focuses on large-scale creature-army confrontations, with an optional Real Time Strategy overlay for added depth and strategy.
