Ark Survival Evolved Patch Notes 2.42

  • Turkey Trial is now live until December 8th! Launch your server with -ActiveEvent=Turkeytrial to enjoy the festivities!
  • Fixed a bug where Tamed Megalodons were accidentally applying the Gashed debuff, causing a slow and a bleed, rather than the Gnashed debuff which would only cause a bleed. Additionally, Wild Megalodons will no longer apply the bleed effect (Gnashed) to their targets.
  • Fixed a bug where the Mammoth Damage Debuff (Trumpet) was not working on wild or tamed dinos
  • Fixed multiple level-design related bugs such as holes, floating foliage, incorrect volumes, etc. This includes the floating water volumes around the Crystal Isles floating islands which would cause players to dismount in midair.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the Taming HUD to clear itself after a server restart or relog
  • Fixed a bug which caused the Rock Drake to stop gliding
  • Fixed a bug which allowed players to place ocean platforms inside other player structures
  • Fixed a bug where HLNA was not correctly colorizable
  • Fixed a bug which caused some foliage on Aberration to be missing collision
  • Fixed a bug which prevented Arthropleuras, Spiders, and Onyc that were in Cryopods from being deployed
  • Fixed a bug which caused Wild Stegos to have colour plating in Single Player
  • Fixed a bug which caused Mantis that was grown from the baby stage to be larger than tamed ones
  • Fixed a bug which made the Chibi Bone Rex smaller than intended
  • Fixed a bug with the Hockey Mask which would cause it to stall players upon selection
  • Fixed a bug which made it so that the Shoulder Cannon icon was not colourised
  • Fixed an exploit which prevented turrets from shooting at you
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed Cannons and Turrets to be healed using the tent

    Fixed the DCing with the update? Lol. It was an occasional annoyance before. Now it happening every 10-45 minutes, with trouble getting back into server too. WC acknowledged it for XBOX/PC players, but still no fix, or even an update on when? Another event to miss out on with nothing to make up for it. Wonderful.

    I updated the game last night to 2.42 and when I reloaded into my server the craftable engrams are not showing up in my smithy, fabricator, or mortar and pestles! Does anyone know a fix? I can’t craft anything!

    I’m all for updates, but a mandatory download that my PC says is 10.7GB, which won’t allow me to play single player until it’s complete. Not my idea of user friendly.

    Plus they’re capping my download speed to well below my broadband rate.

    How about letting me play off line while it’s downloading?

    try the game now – the 30 min timeout / kicked out of session is supposedly fixed:
    from Steam News regarding Xbox /win10


    “We have identified and fixed the issue causing players to regularly disconnect from Player Dedicated & Non-Dedicated servers on Xbox/Win10 every 30 minutes. The fix will be rolled out the upcoming Turkey Trial update on the 24th of November”
