We’ve posted the ARK Dev Kit v185.6, so please update from Steam, as well download & install the latest Engine binaries from GitHub here: https://github.com/StudioWildcard1/Ark-Dev-Kit
Later tonight (or early in the morning) we’ll be posting two “Getting Started With ARK Mods” tutorial videos covering the basics of installing the ARK Dev Kit, and creating-cooking-uploading-playing a simple map as well as a simple mod. We hope they’re helpful, and going forward we plan to create more video tutorials, the next will be the basics of ARK’s TheIsland map functionality.
By the way, note that if you’re getting this error when uploading your Cooked mod to Steam:
Just delete this file “[Your Steam Library Path]\steamapps\common\ARKDevKit\ModTools\ModConfigs\YourModName.vdf” and try again. We’ll be doing a direct fix for that issue soon, but that’s the work-around for now.
Have fun and happy modding,
