Put simply, the newly announced official total conversion mod “Primal Survival” conflicts with my own mod’s name
The workshop title was prefixed with TC as we cannot flag our mods as total conversions ourselves and also appended (Primitive realism) as we cannot add tags to our workshop content ourselves. However the official title has always been primal survival.
Wildcard, would you not at least check name availability in the released mods from your modding community?
Confusion is sure to follow, I first heard about the official mod reading official forums.
“When is Primal Survival going to be released”
I’m not sure how to approach this situation… It hardly seems fair I’d be required to retitle it considering I’ve been developing it for many months and already have a modest following.
If you take a look at the EULA you will see that you do not have to approach the situation at all - all rights to this name in the context of ark modding belong to Wildcard.
Other than that I think you will not have to worry - I am 99% sure that your mod just keep the name as it is now, Primal Survival will most likely be released as a DLC like “The Center” map right now.
Also after taking a look at your mod - awesome! I am also working on a total conversion that aims for more immersion, but I took a bit of a different approach - but I love the ideas!
