From ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki
Released - 16 July, 2016
- Defaulted to using "new save format", which is approximately 4x faster and 50% smaller. If you want to use the old save format, launch with -oldsaveformat. (New saves are not backwards compatible!)
- Reduced client game memory usage by about 600 MB system and 600 MB GPU RAM! (all meshes now stream LOD's dynamically). This could potentially have a small runtime performance impact, so to use the old method (more RAM usage but no potential performance loss), launch with -nomemorybias
- Diseases are now permanently cleared whenever you level-up; as you get "older", it's more time consuming to recover from a disease.
- Titanosaurus torpor reduced by 50%, and Travel Distance for taking Torpor reduced by 50%. Effectively, Titanosaurus is now much easier to knock out. Titanosaurus Saddle Engram is now moved to Level 85 with 120 EP requirement.
