Live-Ops Update

Recently was deployed a patch made changes to structure placing and demolition to help increase server performance.

Previously when replacing a structure, the server had to do complex calculations involving checking all snapped structures to the structure being replaced to verify structural integrity. That calculation has now been eliminated as it is a replacement rather than the placement of a new structure in a new area. This will really only be highly noticeable on servers with large save files

The change to demolishing structures reduced how much is being calculated. It's less complex which makes it less intensive and "cheaper" on the server's performance thereby reducing lag, stalls and/or server drops when demolishing.

Speaking of the Extra Life live stream, In case you missed it we've detailed all of the Genesis 2 reveals below. From Noglin, to the Egg Incubator, the community is having trouble identifying a favorite.

During the Extra Life live stream we also revealed that we'll have a special announcement for the ARK community at The Game Awards on December 10th. Be sure to tune in for a special treat from Jeremy and Jesse!
