Eggcellent Adventure Returns!

Beginning Thursday March 29th until April 10th, survivors will be able to experience the "Eggcellent Adventure" Event on all platforms!


During Eggcellent Adventure, survivors will be able to collect special "Bunny Eggs" across the ARK from wild Bunny Dodo's and Bunny Oviraptor. These Bunny Eggs can paint or used in special Cooking Pot recipes to craft holiday-themed items such as



  • Bunny Ears, a Bunny Costume for the Procoptodon, are two brand new cosmetics: the Knitted Chick Hat and Egg Shell Hat for both survivor and dino!
  • Wild creatures roaming the ARKs will also find themselves feeling eggcellent, sporting bright colours of Green, Magenta, Yellow, and Blue.
  • Wild Dodos are replaced by Bunny Dodos  - with ears, taming disabled, and drop 50% consumable dodo eggs and 50% Bunny eggs
  • Wild Oviraptors are replaced by Bunny Oviraptors - with ears, taming disabled, and drop 50% consumable Oviraptor eggs and 50% Bunny Eggs
  • Bunny Eggs can be placed on the ground and painted
  • Bunny Eggs will expire after approximately two weeks from inventories, and placed eggs will immediately decay once the event is turned off.
  • Run your private server with '-ActiveEvent=Easter' to turn on the event
  • Running the same server without -ActiveEvent=Easter will delete all placed egg structures
  • PC players can use Steam > ARK > Properties > General > Set Launch Options and paste in -ActiveEvent=Easter to experience the event in single player/non-dedicated/player dedicated worlds. You must enable the event yourself in these modes.


Event is not available in Primitive Plus, or single player console worlds, non-dedicated console servers, or player dedicated console servers. Console can however spawn and use the new cosmetics with the command below

Scarlet Diaries

Dear Diary,
I've been travelling the Ark for two weeks, and I've been alone except for my trusty iguanodon called Windrunner. That all changed when I met Bobbert. It all started when I was travelling in the swamp. A wild Kapro leapt from the bushes, and dragged me off my dino! I thought I was dead for certain, but then, a survivor ran out from the bushes and killed the Kapro, saving my life! As our eyes met over the corpse, it was love at first sight! To thank him, I invited him to have dinner with me that night, but we liked each other so much that him and his trike called Cornflake have joined me and my iguanodon on our travels! Bobbert's cheery, scattered, gruff nature has me laughing all day! It's nice to have a companion, and possibly a lover, with me to share my adventures!
Yours truly,


****Dino Spotlight with Goon and Esme****

Dino Name: Carbonemys

From The Dino Dossier

GOON: Carbonemys obibimus is one of the least aggressive creatures on the Island. Were it not for the plethora of predators on the Island, I'm quite certain that it would spend its days basking in the sun, eating, or sleeping. Carbonemys leads a simple, solitary life. Nevertheless, it seems to be one of the most peaceful animals I have yet encountered.

With its slow walking speed, the only things that keep it safe are its surprisingly fast swim speed, and its incredibly thick shell, which can absorb tremendous damage.


Esme: Domesticated
Carbonemys' swift swim rate, fairly high strength, superior shell defenses, and lack of real threat makes it an ideal armored mount for many survivors who shy away from violence. It can carry its rider to the ocean's resources at fairly high speed, and is not particularly dangerous to tame.

Taming Method    Knockout
Preferred Kibble  (Pteranodon Egg)
Preferred Food    Vegetables
Preferred Food (P+) Fresh Tea Leaves

Equipment Carbonemys Saddle (Lv 10)
Rider Weaponry?  Yes
Can not carry Humans



  • You do not have to add anything if you have nothing to add.
  • There can be more than one tip under a section, just not one host with multiple tips.



****Punching Trees*****

Do you have a tip for a new player? Share it below:
Esme: Make sure your Dino's attack settings are set the way you need them to be when heading out with them . If you are going out to take something and taking a dino with you, make sure it isn't on attack my target because it will attack your tame.  You also don't want your Dino's on passive if you're expecting them to protect you. It sux while you're under attack, and you think your dino has your back but it doesn't and you both get chomped on lol


*****Pimp my Hut*****
Do you have a Building Tip, Tricks, Etc that you would like to share? Are you working on a building project? Have an idea for a building project? Share it here!

FOE - On our primitive plus server I am building on two small islands off the shore , my plan to connect both islands and have the bottom of the base be a huge water pen


Trying an experiment in the game? Share it here!

PVP Experiment lol

Esme: We have been experimenting as a group with Pix Ark ! We can share some quick thoughts here as we will be doing a Pix Ark Episode next weekend.
