I was playing ark and I finally managed to get a good connection and downloaded the update for ark, now when I try and play it it has the bank status effect at the bottom and the pickaxe and shovel at the top.

What does this icon mean?

That icon means you are currently targeting something that may be mined/harvested for materials. A similar icon that works the same way is the hand icon that shows up when you are currently targeting something that can be picked up.


For a list of status-effects and what they mean, see https://ark.gamepedia.com/Status_Effects. The house-icon indicates you're in a building and get extra protection to temperature-effects. The icon on the left-bottom indicates that there's a storm and it's not advised to visit a desert-region.
