The custom cosmetics system lets you apply different player -generated costumes to both player characters and dinosaurs, as well as new skins to armors and weapons, and even reskin the game’s structures. This includes both visual and functional enhancements, and you can add these to any server, including the official ones.
Transfers are also now available, after some delays. You can move items, characters, and creatures all around the map on official servers for now, without restrictions. Support for unofficial servers is on the way, to be added later.
The Simple Game Framework and platformer game demo are also in this update. This framework will let you build new games inside of ARK. This mod tool set will let you create entirely new experiences, bring in your original content and create them as cross-platform mods. To get started, there’s a demo of a platformer to let you see how it works, play a bit, and get to brainstorming how to create something of your own.
Survival Ascended modders can now get to really tailoring the experience, with mods created on PC also having cross-platform support.
