Transfers on The Center Official servers will open at 10am PST/1pm EST July 26th allowing players to move items, creatures, and characters onto the map without restriction! Get your Fasolasuchus ready to explore the majestic Red Woods!

It goes without saying that supporting modders is a very integral part of ASA’s development. A lot of the work we’ve been doing has been functionality based by providing more power to UGC creators in the Devkit itself, however we’ve also been working on some improvements at a platform level!

We’ve made significant improvements to our moderation methods with pipeline improvements, as well as increasing our moderation capacity. As a result, Cross-Platform mods can expect a maximum moderation time of 24 hours from submission (earlier in most cases). Reminder that PC-only mods are not affected by this level of moderation, and are instead published immediately.

We’re also working on some cooking pipeline improvements so that mods can get cooked faster and we’re hoping to roll that out in the weeks ahead, and the team is hard at work on delivering the previously mentioned Unrestricted Premium Mod system.

On April 8th, we deployed a new type of server across the network (for the various game types) that we refer to as “Expire” (which is what you can search for in the session filter).

These servers will be online until 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on August 3rd. We’re preemptively using our allocation for Aberration to host some additional sessions that players can travel onto to farm, tame, and experience The Center Gameplay. The same transfer restrictions apply in that you are only able to download your character, but you can freely take anything off. This is to help reduce load off some of the other servers, or provide players an option for those who just want to jump onto The Center temporarily.

Please note that these servers will no longer exist after 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on August 3rd, so if you intend to use them, remember to transfer your items/creatures/characters off before that date, as nothing will be saved beyond that time period.

Transfers are coming to the Official Modded Servers! From Wednesday 17th July, 10am PST/1pm EST, players can move items, creatures, and characters between a set of modded maps. The servers will be merged to create clusters, two to be exact, and these clusters contain the group of servers players can travel between. A list of the servers on each cluster can be found below.

It’s important to note that anything left in uploads on the Official Modded Servers will be lost if you don’t download what you want to keep before next Wednesday, and any content that is exclusive to a mod/specific mod server cannot transfer to another one. For example, a creature that is exclusive or specific to Svartalfheim cannot be transferred to a different map.
