Structures Plus (S+) & Kibble Rework Beta! It is finally here! This is the first time we've done a public beta branch for ARK, so here is a lengthy but necessary introduction. As a quick starting note: Before accessing a beta branch you should create a backup of any single player games, characters, or server files that you may have for ARK to prevent any corruption or loss of player data from occurring. When you’re done playing with the beta you’ll need to navigate back to the branch selection dialogue and opt-out of the beta (choose NONE). You cannot access your official server while on the beta because they are not the same version. Depending on your internet connection this process could take some time so if you’re doing anything time sensitive on your official server, be cautious of swapping! https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/956352814866447554/B9857ED3DE03AFE112F152F21F9B04244AF43AE2/ How to access the beta: From your Steam games library, right-click on ARK: Survival Evolved and choose Properties. From this new window you’ll click on BETAS at the top. Here is where you’ll swap between the beta version and the live version of the game. Choose the beta called qolbeta_public from the drop down list and then close the Properties window once the window says it has successfully accessed the beta. Your Steam client
