PixARK Update 1.40 Jan.22 https://pixark-servers.io/blog/53/pixark-update-140-jan22/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/53/pixark-update-140-jan22/ Mon, 21 Jan 2019 07:44 CET
Welcome to a Chinese New Year PixARK world! Happy Chinese New Year!
Chinese New Year Login
The login screen has been updated to celebrate the Chinese New Year! What kind of new things will you be able to spot in the login screen?

New Creatures

An ancient cousin of the modern pig, this swine has a prominent, horrifying mouth and sharp tusks. Different from wild boars which feeds on anything, Daeodon is definitely a carnivore. Wild Daeodon is quite an indomitable creature for adventurers to land a lethal blow, because of its extraordinary ability to rapidly heal itself. What is particularly extraordinary about a tamed Daeodon is its capability to share this healing benefit with nearby allies (RMB), making Daeodon an invaluable support in combat.
Dev will upload Image

Nian Beast
According to Chinese mythology, Nian Beast appears only on New Year’s Eve. People are frightened by its horrid appearance and its ferocious demeanor. Fortunately, legend has it that one child happened to discover a very strange weakness Nian Beast has, its sensitivity to loud noises and light. During the night when Nian Beast comes out of hiding to feed, people light up fireworks and throw firecrackers, hoping to intimidate Nian and chase them away. During Chinese New Year, Nian Beast will spawn in Novice Grassland and Grassland. They are afraid of nothing but the Firecrackers. If explorers are fortunate enough to take Nian Beast down, it is possible that Nian Beast will become your tame. Tamed Nian Beast has diverse skills, frightening surrounding creatures (RMB), and temporarily casting a damage increase buff on allies (C).

Flame Demon
A demon originating from the Earth’s core, with hardened lava rocks shaping its exterior and sizzling lava flowing inside. The Flame Demon burns everything into ashes wherever it travels, posing a prominent threat to all beings. Luckily, Flame Demon usually appears only in ancient ruins and altars, and doesn’t usually set foot in other territories. It has the ability to summon a volcanic tornado, lava ball, fire beam, and a volcano against its targets, causing tremendous damage to other creatures in both close combat or ranged combat. It is advisable to explorers who want to take on a Flame Demon that they should keeping moving around to avoid being hit. Also, a reliable flyer would greatly improve your survival chance against the Flame Demon. Flame Demon will spawn in the Ruin altar located in Doom Lands, replacing Death Lord to be the guardian before Death Lord returns later.

New Subspecies

Raptor (Swamp subspecies)
The Raptor is an incredibly smart creature, inhabiting the dense swamp forest. Some of them gradually picked up the ability to hunt down prey without taking too much stamina loss, as ambush is their usual tactic against smaller creatures and explorers. They will jump out of the bush, pounce at the prey and hold its prey to the ground (RMB), immobilizing them and the explorers riding them. Good thing is that Raptor subspecies aren’t well-known for strengthful stamina, so they aren’t able to hold down their prey for a long time.

T-Rex (Golden Realm subspecies)
Although the almighty T-Rex stands on top of the food chain, it is not armed with the speed and stamina to tackle fast runners. T-Rex subspecies, however, evolves its ability to growl (RMB) and intimidate its prey, which will then be forced to running around aimlessly and uncontrollably. Tamed T-Rex subspecies will be an astounding force in combat.

Greeting Explorers!

Welcome to a Christmas PixARK world! Merry Christmas!

Christmas Login

New Creatures

Traditional festive legend has it that Santa Claus's Reindeer pull a sleigh through the night sky to help him deliver gifts. In PixARK, Reindeer are herbivores widely populated in the Frozen Land. Male or female, they grow large antlers to charge at dangerous predators to protect themselves. Reindeer are strong in body and developed in limps, allowing it to run extremely fast. Their large hooves allow them to sprint easily on the surface of snow. It has come to explorers’ attention that Reindeer is born to be attracted to snow, as they are more lively during snowy day. They can sprint for a long time relentlessly, making them the best ride for people to travel during winter time.

Kairuku Penguin
The Kairuku Penguin is an ancestor of the modern penguin, with a slim body and long fins suited for swimming in the water. Wild Kairuku tend to consume food rich in grease and minerals which can not be easily digested and is likely to be excreted. Their excrement is found to be similar to Polymer. Tamed Kairuku are unlikely to be fed with food rich in mineral, hence they rarely produce special excrement. However, their body generates heat like a fire stove, providing cold resistanceto explorers.

Tapejara grows a large and distinctive head crest, the symbol of power to show off when they are courting. Known as the aerial acrobat, Tapejara is one of the most adept flyers, as its crest is a highly developed sensory organ allowing the animal to finely maintain balance while its large wings provide it with sharp maneuverability in the air. Tapejara wings are strong enough to hold two explorers atop without sacrificing its aerial adeptability. Its sharp, climbing-suitable claws also allow it to hang on the edge of cliff.

New Subspecies

Shadow Leopard subspecies (Magic Forest)

Residing in the Magic Forest where danger lurks everywhere, Shadow Leopard activates its inner magic power while hunting prey, mastering the ability to utilize shadow power to turn itself invisible. Hence it can sneak its way up to the prey, and take it down more easily. Shadow Leopard mounts can hide (RMB) both themselves and the riders, making them the best ride to initiate ambush at the target.

Gem Spider subspecies (Magic Forest)

Sparkling gems are Gem Spider’s favorite of all time, and it is no surprise that some Gem Spider mutate after taking up a lot of illuminating gems. Tamed Gem Spider subspecies can have their inner lighting elements activated (hold E to activate) to emit light through the gem on its back.

Centaur subspecies (Magic Forest)

Among the centaur species, some spent their lifetime living in the Magic Forest which is surrounded with magical elements, evolving their perceptibility to magic. These centaur forgo the spear, and instead use a staff to summon air magic, and the powerful tornado (RMB) to range-attack the enemy.

Quetzal subspecies (Frozen Land)

Quetzal has long lived high above in the air and rarely lands. Some of them are intelligent enough to learn the ability to fly along with the airflow, which allows them to sprint forward for some distance quickly so that they can get out of danger swiftly. (Press C). Compared to its normal counterpart, Quetzal subspecies is better in movement speed and attack despite its inferiority in other stats.

Dire Wolf subspecies (Frozen Land)

Dire wolf has a very sharp sense of smell, yet they are born to have a bad temper, making it hard for the explorers to communicate with them. Their sense of smell was never put into good use until a special Dire Wolf subspecies was tamed. Unlike its cranky counterpart, Dire Wolf subspecies is intimate to its master and smart enough to under what its master tell it to do. Its sense of smell is can be used to discover injured dinos from long distance, and dropped backpacks as well. (Press C)

PixARK Update 12/6 - Patch Notes https://pixark-servers.io/blog/45/pixark-update-12-6-patch-notes/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/45/pixark-update-12-6-patch-notes/ Thu, 06 Dec 2018 06:39 CET New Creatures

Morellatops is a dinosaur similar to the modern day camel. They can transform surplus water and food into a special nutrient which gets stored in their humps. This allows the Morellatops to thrive in the otherwise desolate desert. It also means that they are an important part of the food chain, with many predators seeking to hunt down and consume them!
Once adventurers learn how to obtain the nutrient preserved inside without hurting the docile Morellatops, they become an indispensable companion in the desert. As outstanding pack animals, they also provide water and food and help adventurers to better withstand the fiery heat, which makes the difference between life and death in the desert.

Ancient Mantis
Mantis is an horrifying insect from ancient times. Their intellect is unparalleled among non-human creatures, hence they have mastered how to use human weapons and tools, and evolve their raptorial forelegs into weapon-grasping claws.
Because of their ability to either wield melee weapons such as swords and spears during combat, or grasp tools to harvest resources, the Mantis is an invaluable tame for all Explorers.

Ancient Anthropluera
As an appalling predators from ancient times, Anthropluera are equipped with large poisonous fangs, a sturdy shell that covers its entire body, and many, many legs, making them the nightmarish enemy. Analysis of the body fluid they spit out reveals its low ph, indicating strong acidity and causticity that could easily corrode armors worn by adventurers.
Luckily, Anthropluera is not categorized as an intellectual creature and therefore, once tamed, they can be used as mounts, or whistled to stay put to attack incoming enemies, as your “defensive turret”.

New Engram
Burning Arrow
Flaming on the tip, Burning Arrow will ignite its target once hit, causing burning damage over time.
Unlocked at level 20

A simple and practical tent, providing heat resistance and cold resistance to explorers staying inside.
Unlocked at level 32

Incendiary Oil Bottle
Made of oil and clay, Incendiary Oil Bottle spread out oil when thrown on the ground, slowing people down if they stay within. Oil can be ignited by Burning Arrow, causing burning damage over time.
Unlocked at level 55

Desert-themed Costume
You can certainly wear some spectacular explorer costume while you are venturing in desert. Desert-themed costume is gonna make your adventure stylish. Desert-themed Costume is craftable in Tailor’s Workbench.

Balance Changes
Adjusted the resource output efficiency for Thorny Lizard to the below:

It takes 10 seconds for Thorny Lizard to produce 1 Coal with 3 Dirt.
It takes 20 seconds for Thorny Lizard to produce 1 Copper Ore with 6 Clay.

2.Kill experience from Turkeys will be reduced to its normal value.
3.Reduce drop rate of Turkey Hat from Turkey kill from 25% to 10%.

New Creatures!

Next week we won’t have subspecies but some brand new creatures in the PixARK world.
The desert biome will have a much wider variety of creatures and there will be some new engram items for your adventrue there.

Let’s take a glance!

PixARK Update 11/23 - Patch Notes https://pixark-servers.io/blog/42/pixark-update-11-23-patch-notes/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/42/pixark-update-11-23-patch-notes/ Fri, 23 Nov 2018 10:08 CET
New subspecies:

Sarco (Swamp subspecies)

Living in the muddy Swamp, the Sarco subspecies has evolved their agility and body flexibility to better suit their competitive environment. They can hunt down prey, especially those that are agile, with their Deadly Tumble, a more efficient means to kill their prey.

Ice Bear (Frozen Land subspecies)

Only found in the Frozen Land, the Ice Bear subspecies are stronger and and more flexible in their limbs compared to their normal counterparts. Long-term interaction with humans have cultivated these smart Ice Bear subspecies to mimic the way human walk with two limbs, evolving themselves into biped, hence allowing them to use their stronger front limbs for a explosive swing.

Elemental Spirit (Frozen Land subspecies)

Long inhabiting to the Frozen Land, Elemental Spirit subspecies have mastered a power that can knock-back other dinos to better protect themselves. The more intelligent Elemental Spirit subspecies can be tamed and whistled to fight alongside their masters.

Abandoned Structures

Players has long been plagued by the abandoned structures in the servers, and has no easy way of fixing the issue themselves. To allow for a better game experience on official servers, we are adding a dynamic list to help with this issue. The list records all online players, and if a player becomes inactive (as in both the player and his/her tribe members have been offline for more than 15 days) in the list, all his/her structures will become demolishable by anyone. However, the player are given a grace period (15 days from this update) to log in the server and become active again, so you can demolish the abandoned structures 15 days later.

Looking ahead, we want to give some insight into what you can expect in a couple of our upcoming patches.

Thanksgiving Event

Happy Thanksgiving!

We will be having 2x harvest rate event (double resource harvested from ores and vegetation) from 11.23 to 11.30 in celebration of Thanksgiving!

Also, Turkey is coming to the PixARK world, and populating them in the Novice Grassland biome!
Turkey drops Turkey Meat, and it makes delicious Roasted Turkey!
You also have the chance to obtain fashionable costume, Turkey Hat, from Turkey drop!
During Thanksgiving event, 11.23 - 11.30, you get more kill exp from Turkey as well!

Turkey Incoming! Let’s enjoy Thanksgiving!]]>

The next PixARK update is scheduled to go live at 1:00 am PST on November 16.

New subspecies:

Trike (Mountain Forest subspecies)
Found only in the Mountain Forest biome, the Trike subspecies can easily be recognized by its distinctive color and head. To get better suited for the complicated terrain this biome presents, the Trike subspecies has developed a powerful defense stance, using its head to fend off incoming attacks and counter attacks when the time is right.

Paracer (Swamp subspecies)
Confronted with the hostile and unsympathetic Swamp biome, Paracers are constantly being hunted by predators, which forced them to develop an ability to increase movement speed during a short period of time at the cost of draining all of its stamina. To further strengthen the ability to evade predators, Paracer subspecies grows stronger thighs but a less weighted body.

Fire Element (Doom Lands subspecies)
Doom Lands is the only place where you can find Fire Element subspecies, who has evolving into lava element after years of residence nearby lava. Better suited to the unbearable heat lava emits, Fire Element subspecies has developed the ability to slowly produce lava from within, leaving a a lava trail on the its walking path.

Treant (Magic Forest subspecies)
Over the course of Interaction with other dinos and creatures, some Treants grow stronger arms, and evolve into a more intelligent creature, who is more inclined to use its ranged attack.
It is also noted that tamed Treant subspecies are more restrained; they are able to stay where they are as whistled, instead of indiscriminately charging its way forward like their normal counterpart does.

Ichthyosaurus (Deep Ocean subspecies)
The vast ocean provides the best playground for Ichthyosaurus subspecies to develop a special skill; a spinning charge. To better use its unique skill, Ichthyosaurus subspecies develops a more streamlined shape with stronger fins.

Optimized the engram screen to allow players to sort by item type.

Bug Fixing
-Fixed an issue where Wyvern didn’t have the correct torpidity required for successfully taming it.
Fixed an issue where Element Golem doesn’t include the correct feed for taming in the Dino Bestiary.

Server Reset
We will reset some servers according to the condition of them.
The first batch will be at 11.21 and the servers list are:

PixARK 1.29

Greetings Explorers!

New creatures:

Doedicurus (Mountain Forest subspecies)

Found only in the Mountain Forest biome, Doedicurus subspecies can easily be recognized the distinctive color and shape its tail has. The mountain forest subspecies has adapted their destructive slow rolling skill into one that is quicker and more maneuverable, better suited for the complicated terrain this biome presents.

Argentavis (Desert subspecies)

Argentavis found its own way to get acclimated to the hostile Desert biome. The lack of food has forced Argentavis to change its hunting patterns; the desert subspecies will grab onto prey with either its claws or its more powerful beak. The color and crest are also visually distinguished from its non-subspecies counterpart.

  • Fixed an issue where weapon durability is invalid.
  • Fixed an issue where some Ruin dinos are not being spawned.
  • Fixed an issue where Spring Steel Shoes is still available after it is broken.
New subspecies and more ! https://pixark-servers.io/blog/38/new-subspecies-and-more/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/38/new-subspecies-and-more/ Wed, 07 Nov 2018 11:00 CET
Two more subspecies are coming to the PixARK world right now!

Doedicurus - MountainForest subspecies

This subspecies of Doedicurus could only be found in the MountainForest. They can be easily recognized by the specific color and shape of the tail.
In order to adapt to the complex terrain condition, they changed their slow and destructive rolling into a more controllable and faster way.

Argentavis - Desert subspecies

Argentavis also find their own way to survive the harsh environment of the desert. Because of the lack of food, the desert subspecies of Argentavis can carry their preys with both their claw and the more powerful beak.
They also have a different appearance with ordinary ones with special color and crests.

And here is a picture of some other species in changing. Can you recognize them? What amazing evolution will finally happen to them? Keep track of our updates and you will find it out soon!

Wait a minute, there is a more exciting news!

As so many players are plagued by the abandoned structures in their server which they can do nothing about, we will take care of it next week. There will be a dynamic list recording all the active players. When someone becomes "Inactive" which means he or his tribe haven't logged in the server for 15 days, all his structures could be demolished by anyone. And there will be a buffering time before the system starts working for you to login to become active.

Also, we will open new servers later to give you a fresh start as the resources and terrain re-generate solution is undergoing.

Please keep attention with our updates and thanks again for all your time and love for our game!]]>

PixARK 1.28

Greetings Explorers!

The next PixARK update is scheduled to go live at 1:00 am PDT on November 2.

New creature:
Pteranodon (Grassland subspecies)

As the world in PixARK is evolving and changing, some creatures have adapted themselves to their new biome and environment.

These creatures transform into subspecies. Subspecies vary with their originals in multiple aspects, including skills, abilities, colors, and certainly, how they look. Explorers will need to keep an extra eye out and use some extra patience to tame them.

The massive territory Pteranodons live in allow them to beat other dinos one step ahead in evolving into subspecies. The Grassland Pteranodon subspecies has the the ability of doing extra spin attack at additional stamina cost. It would definitely be a funny challenge for you to have them tamed.

1. Optimize the zone difficulty indicator.
2. Remove Candle from Torch Light’s required crafting material.

  • Fixed an issue where durability was not showing up for melee weapons.
  • Fixed a client crash that occurred when loading the map.
  • Fixed an issue where some plants were not harvestable when they are ripen.
  • Fixed an issue where Stone Wall and Fine Stone Wall had the same icon.
  • Fixed an issue where Sloped Roof Tile could not be correctly placed.

As the world of PiXARK keeps changing and evolving, some creatures begin to acclimate new biome and environment.

We call them the Subspecies.

The subspecies can be different from their original species in many ways: the skill, the abilities, and of course, their shape and color. You need extra observation and patience to tame them.

Because of the wide-span living region, the Pteranodon start this progress ahead of others.

The Grassland subspecies of Pteranodon can deal an extra spin attack with more stamina consumption. It will be a great fun and challenge to make them your pets!

These changes will be continuously updated. So leave comments behind and let us know your opinion.

Thanks for your constant attention!]]>
Update following up https://pixark-servers.io/blog/33/update-following-up/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/33/update-following-up/ Fri, 26 Oct 2018 08:20 CEST
How is everything with the newly released update?

After the balance and user-friendly adjustments, we will focus on solving the terrain regeneration and abandoned structure recycle issue.
There are few outlines of handle this problem.

1. We will reset the PVE servers. It means they will return to the beginning state.
2. The save file of these servers will be open to download. You can use them in your dedicated servers or local games as you want.
3. There will be an active-player-list in the PVP server. If you or your tribe members don't log in for a long time, you will enter an inactive state. The structures of the inactive tribes can be demolished by anyone and recycle the resources.
4. Another useful tool will be added which enable you to save your stylish architectures and share with other players by Steam Workshop.

We are busy carrying out these functions and they should get released in the future updates.

Before that, we will open some new servers tomorrow.

10/26/18 - 7 PM Pacific Time

There are both PVP and PVE servers, happy exploring and give us your comments and feedback! Thanks!]]>

New Features Detail #3 User-friendly Adjustments https://pixark-servers.io/blog/30/new-features-detail/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/30/new-features-detail/ Thu, 18 Oct 2018 13:51 CEST
Many players have encountered different problems in the PixARK world. And a great percentage of them were caused by some missing important information. When busy solving the hard problem, we also try to produce more easy-to-use ways for the player to gather the information they need.

1 We made an in-game PixARK encyclopedia contains tons of useful things and it will help with both the starter and old-friends of the game.

2 A core-engram push function will be activated when you get some important level node in game. It will help you find out the relatively necessary and powerful item in the wild range of engrams.

3 A creature handbook is also available in the game too. All the information you need about a creature including the needed equipment and the ability of the creature are all could be found in it. You also can use the scanner to get the information of recommended armor level of a certain monster. Don't get fooled by the cute appearance of some creature, they could be very dangerous!

4 The biome difficulty and transferable is something we pay high attention to. We add a reminder on the screen and it will show the difficulty of biome in case you run into the center of the death-area for your current state. We also add a one-time transporter in the engram. It can transfer you to other biomes according to your level and save you from hell.

There are also other improvements like equipments and structures data preview and new login animation and so on. They will all be in the update later this month!

So leave comments behind and get ready for the refreshing new experience!]]>
New Features Detail #2 - Creatures https://pixark-servers.io/blog/29/new-features-detail/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/29/new-features-detail/ Mon, 15 Oct 2018 15:04 CEST
The Interaction with the creature is an important base behavior both under PVP and PVE condition. So let's take a look at the changes of creatures in the upcoming update.

1. We changed the setting of player melee damage to the wild animal. The player can make more damage to them.

2. We changed the way of creatures' healthy point recovery. The creature will recover HP base on the exact number but not the percentage of max HP. It means that the high-HP monster would not recovery so fast and it will help the player with the condition of a protracted battle.

3. The healthy point and torpidity point of the creature are both shown now. Also, the number of damage that you make and receive are both shown on the screen too. So you can know how much you hit and get hit and estimate how long does it need to take down the beast.

4. Because of the wild range of creatures' level, the high-level individual could be much more powerful than a low-level one. Some player failed to sense the danger of high-level creature before they got too close with them. Now the different particles are added based on the dino's level. So you can choose your opponent carefully at a safe distance before accidentally step on the toe of hard ones.

5. We notice that there's also complain about that player need to tame the next power-stage dino to get into the next power-stage, there is too big a gap between biomes. After the update, the high-level dino in the current biome would be competitive with the creatures in next level biome. That means it will be smoother when you try to get to the next area after you conquer this one.

6. Because of the power balancing adjustment above, the base tame rate and growth tame rate have been reconsidered to match up with the power level. It means that under the same species, it will be easier to tame a low-level dino and harder to tame the high-level one.

There are both adjustments of the numerical value and user-friendly content. Just in case you missed it last time, all the adjustment above will be released in this month. So leave comments behind and let us know what's your thought about them.

Happy exploring and see you next time!]]>
New Features Detail #1 - Equipment https://pixark-servers.io/blog/28/new-features-detail/ https://pixark-servers.io/blog/28/new-features-detail/ Thu, 11 Oct 2018 13:50 CEST
The update we talked about will come within this month!

In order to keep you up with the new features, here comes some of the detail about the changes we made.

The first episode would be the armor balance.

We notice that it's hard for some players to survive the battle with wild creatures but there's also a low-cost problem when raiding other's bases.
Considering the degree of difficulty and balance, we decide:

1 The armor of equipment would be greatly enhanced but they will have durability at the same time.

2 When durability comes to zero, they will stay equipped state but will become invisible and provide neither protection nor extra ability for the player.

3 Equipped items will not drop when players get defeated.

4 Add new item: Pliers. It can fix most of the equipment. Drag it onto a equipment and you can repair them by your hands anywhere.

The next episode would be some changes to the creatures.

Leave comments below and let us know what's your thought about all these changes above.

Thanks for your time!
