Well, this sure is... uhhh. That is to say... er. Hm.


Ever wanted to live in a house made of glistening meat, blanched bones, and striated fibers, all pulsating together in nauseating harmony? Now, now, don’t screamvomit (from excitement!) all at once. Instead, check out infinitesunrise’s Meat Structures mod for Ark: Survival Evolved. It’s everything you ever dreamed of when you first scalpeled open a small woodland creature at the tender age of six.

Here’s the description:


“Is your overpowered carnivore creating a problematic meat backlog? Did you tranq the rival tribe, bring them back to your base and are now unsure what to do with the bodies? Did you WAY over-gather when prepping for that new baby raptor?”

“An answer to your problems is here at long last: MEAT STRUCTURES! An entirely new base structure set that uses MEAT as the primary ingredient, along with hide and fiber.”

That sounds kinda useful, actually—although over-gathering due to overpowered carnivores might not be such an issue after Ark’s recent dino downgrade.

The mod is also remarkably high-quality and detailed. It even makes some extremely upsetting squelch sounds when you walk around, open doors, and whatnot. I’m impressed! Watch, courtesy of Welcome To Paradise:

So there’s, um, that. It exists. Do with this information what you will. I won’t judge. I do, however, reserve the right to throw up on your shoes (probably also made of meat) and flee in abject horror.
