Supply Crate Color Meaning and Space Biome Resource Guide for Genesis: Part 2 on Ark: Survival Evolved?

Genesis Part 2 has a new meaning for the supply crate colors. Let's explore what they are and how they help you during gameplay.

With the release of Genesis: Part 2 on June 3rd, 2021 came a new Space biome and coordinating supply crate colors. The map itself is split in two with a Space biome allowing players to get certain resources such as gems, element, ambergris, black pearls, and even mutagel.

This new DLC is actually a ship. Starting around midnight, the ship will enter warp then arrive at a new location at 1:30 AM. Each location allows players to harvest a different resource, which can be determined by several methods we’ll go over here.

How to Determine the Space Biome Resources by Supply Crate Colors or Skybox

To start, I’ve included a quick reference guide that goes over the basics. Keep reading to view the full information on the Space biome, resources, and supply crate colors.

How Do I figure Out Which Days Are Which Resources In the Space Biome on Genesis 2?

Unfortunately, the space biome is randomly decided each night, and you might get the same color in a row. I once spent about 15 days on Genesis 2 before I ever saw Orange supply crates (which give black pearls).

If you have access to a cluster of servers, you can import needed supplies, such as black pearls. Wolfe’s Den is a large cluster that hosts 4 active maps at a time and you can switch between the maps at your convenience, transferring up to 100 items/stacks or dinos at a time!

Since the biome is randomly chosen, there’s no way to guarantee you’ll get access to a biome in a timely manner. Again, prepare to import certain precious items if you plan to have a main base on Genesis 2.

Ready to play Genesis Part 2?

If you love to play Ark and excited to get started on Genesis: Part 2, we welcome all players to the Wolfe’s Den Ark cluster. We host public servers open to all, with events, tribal warfare, and fun with friends.

We currently keep 4 maps active with a single map being rotated each month. Find detailed information about each one of our Ark servers and settings before you join. Most of us are veteran players, so our base difficulty settings are high! If you’re new to the game and would still like to join, head to Wolfe’s Den Discord and ask for some assistance (or join a tribe).

Data Accuracy is my Goal

It’s my goal to bring you accurate information. If you’ve found that this information is incorrect or outdated, please let me know. Remember to include photo or video references to support your claims.

I hope this reference guide helps you find all the resources you’ll need during your stay on Genesis Part 2!
