Astral ARK – Easing our COVID-19 response

Hey everyone,

Since most countries in the world are starting to ease the restrictions put in place to help with COVID-19, we think it is a good time to gradually come back to normal on Astral ARK as well. We do hope that our response helped you cope with the situation a bit easier. A lot of players have joined, built bases and left, and with the current settings, those bases are protected by ORP and not auto-destroyed. This uses server resources that could be better utilised.

From next week, we will follow the plan below and wanted to share it with you so you can make the necessary arrangements should you need to:

  • On June 8th:
    • Auto-destruction of structures will be re-enabled at the following rates:
      • Thatch: 8 days
      • Wood: 16 days
      • Stone: 24 days
      • Metal: 32 days
      • TEK: 40 days
    • ORP expiration will be set to 30 days
    • Auto-destruction of dinos will be re-enabled after 32 days of inactivity
  • On June 15th:
    • ORP expiration will be back to normal (20 days)
    • Auto-destruction of structures will be back to normal (see Info page)
    • Auto-destruction of dinos will be back to normal (25 days)
    • Tames consumption will be back to normal (0.5x)
  • On July 1st:
    • Shop prices will be back to normal
    • Discounts in the store will end

It is important to note that abandoned bases will be auto-destroyed when a player is in range. Don’t hesitate to fly around from next week to help clear the maps.

Obviously, we’re not out of the woods yet so if the situation changes again, we may reintroduce some of these measures.

Stay safe, survivors.
