During the course of the program, we’ve seen our share of maps, structure mods, and even a total conversion. We get excited when we see game modes like Urban Deathmatch or really well thought out ideas like Zoology get published!
Urban Death Match
We’ve always thought that ARK could serve as a good foundation for a team deathmatch mod. Those that aren’t new to the modding scene might remember Tribe Wars and the pre-match that started in a team deathmatch setting. Urban Deathmatch might be the choice for those who are looking for a similar game mode.
Spawn areas are predetermined and each spawn area has six crates that can be used to gear up your players. Be sure to give this a look if you are looking for some fun events to host on your server. Since the mod is a map extension, it shouldn't affect any of your existing saves! Be sure to check it out!
We were really impressed when I got to check out Zoology. It’s one of those mod that just makes sense! Zoology adds a new element of discovery to the creatures you encounter on The Island. Ultimately, it changes how they act and behave and adds new and refreshing ways of interacting with wild and tamed creatures.
There’s a lot going on in this mod but essentially, wild and tamed creatures, have a level of morale and can suffer from stress, are intelligent enough (some of them) to flee from their predators, and predators will only hunt when hungry. It’s like a total conversion for the behavioural system of creatures!!
That’s all for this month. We’ll continue to keep an eye out for mods that are original and creative. We sincerely appreciate all the effort we are seeing from the modding community.
