The Trails & Tales Update has a surprise. It's bamboo! This isn’t the first time bamboo’s been a part of the game. You know it as the stuff you used for making scaffolding blocks. But now, there's more! You can create solid bamboo blocks. Just take nine twigs, and use a crafting grid. Voila, there's your bamboo block. Isn't that cool?
You might be wondering: what can I do with it? Well, lots of things! For instance, use it to create structures. Or strip it and get planks. You can also pop it into furnaces, or even note blocks!
"But where do I find this bamboo?" you might ask. Look for bamboo jungles. Here's the challenging part, though. They're not everywhere. They can be tough to locate. They're a special kind of jungle. Sort of rare.
Now let's get real-world for a second. People have been using bamboo for construction for years and years. Why? It's strong but lightweight. It also bounces back in earthquakes, which is pretty neat. More recently, folks have been loving it for being planet-friendly. It grows a lot faster than trees, you see. So, using bamboo? That’s a thumbs up for Mother Earth.
You don't have to worry about sustainability. Bamboo is a great choice! It's not just beautiful to look at. It brings a fresh twist to your building material options, too.
ARK: Survival Evolved
ARK: Survival Evolved has a Community Crunch update. Guess what Studio Wildcard drops? A new creature for the Aberration map. Its name? Yi Qi. Neat, huh?

By the way, you can put on your creative hats too! Yes, you heard right. You also get to submit your very own creature ideas. And dossiers? Those too! All these for The Center map. So, ready to get your creative juices flowing?

Community Update 254 just detailed all about the Rustopia Invitational Tournament. It's happening this July 29th-30th! It's a game of points. You win them for your kills and joining in team events. Sounds fun, doesn't it?
So here's the deal: It's got three stages.
Day one, all about scavenging and PvP-style challenges.
