Awesome map layout! Love all the Redwoods!!!

Thanks I love the redwoods too and I wanted them combined with rocky mountains but also beachy water areas! That was why it took me so long creating this map lol! Also the metal spawns wern't spawning for a bit so that took time to fix too! But thanks so much glad you like it :)

Hopefully its for PC

Another command you should look at (ToggleGun is for PC) is enablespectator, and stopspectating

 

You'll have better shots, faster travel over your map, and overall better ability to take shots and make videos without everything else fuddling up your screen.

Also, your work is well worth the 15 hours, good on you for having the staying power.

Thanks for the suggestions! Forgot about enable spectator etc! Good to have that reminder again thanks :) And thanks also I was wondering if it was worth the 15 hours or not but from reactions on here it seems it was worth spending that time to get it perfect lol.

Am now downloading the ark dev kit to have a play around with making a modded map (if I can learn how as beginner here) As the responses to this map whilst its procedurally generated and not nearly the amount of work required to make your own map) I really want to attempt to make my own modded map but as for bug fixes etc I have no knowledge will probably see if my IT friend can help me out at those times with fixing things or explaining me through fixing them!

You'll need to get the ADK, and download it (As it is MASSIVE and downloads very slowly) then ensure you can run it (As on most machines it's is TERRIBLY slow) and then from there start learning the appropriate sections of the Unreal Editor to get you in with a start.

 

Map making is an easy step as such, as you're simply making a terrain, then texturing it and adding in spawn points, biomes and all that. Once you've got it, got it running and are handling it's sluggish nature on your machine, then you'd be wise to jump into the ArkModders discord, or their reddit to check out what they've got, as they have tutorials and stuff there.

If you haven't got an SSD already, you're going to want to get one... If you have one, you'll be wanting to look at a bigger one to house the ADK on.

Am currently downloading it from epic games! Right now it's down to 73GB of 91GB in a couple of hours of downloading! Probably more now since I am out and around nearly 2 more hours have gone now! (Just recently got fibre optic cable connected here so download things faster!)

 

As for PC spec they are

intel i5 6500 3.2ghz

8GB memory

1TB Hard Drive

Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 GDDR5 2x OC Windforce Graphics Card.

It was what I could afford at the time and got it custom built so I could upgrade things in the future whenever I had the funds

As for SSD I can't afford one and don't have one as money is short! 

My PC however is not quite a year old so I am hoping it will work but will wait and see!

 

As for current internet speed I get up to 25 MBPS upload and up to 5 MBPS upload.

Thanks for the recommendations/suggestions appreciate it!

You will need to look at even a cheap SSD in the near future. They've come down a lot in price recently, and they probably will drop a little further as well. Just keep track of the price, and put a few pennies away.

So finally 3:42am in the morning and I am finally done and satisfied with the Procedurally Generated Map I have been working on. Phew even though I didn't have to do the graphics etc that took a lot of time getting it to finally look how I wanted it too after much trial and error! It was tough but I finally feel satisfied and happy with it! I will include the specs needed to play on this map but please keep in mind this map was made to be a challenge!


Spinos and sarcos etc on the beaches as well as pegomastix and dillos. There is actually a lot of danger on the beaches but some awesome areas for beach side bases! It is alot of beach/water area as I wanted a heap of water on the map so there are alot of flat spaces for building along the beach or inland however nearly every area has 2 or 3 spino spawn locations so will have to be careful about not wiping those out but one or two areas shouldn't hurt there are so many lol!

There is also a redwood and snow biome area too and the redwood goes right up to the sea in some locations! Either way will share some pictures below and video record a fly around tomorrow to show it through video! I haven't started building yet I just spawned in the pteranadon to be able to fly around and check out the map and make sure it was how I wanted it.

Anyway hope you enjoy! I plan on entering this map in the entrance thread for this weeks procedurally generated maps I am so proud of it! :) And look forward to your thoughts! Thanks

Pictures included below and video to come! I did post process these as when ansel doesn't work (video card needs updating) I take the images and edit them to look the best I can :)

And here is the specs needed to use this map! Enjoy
