  1. Has anyone had recent success with Nitrado PGM's? Purchased a 10-slot just to finally mess with the feature (it made no sense to try it on xbox due to the fact that it could be lost at a moments notice and the guaranteed lag). I'm not able to view the PGM when it launches from the Ark browser, and for that matter I'm unable to locate ANY PGARK's across any of the filter options. Have these been cancelled or is this a bug that's being worked and applies to xbox only? I'm hearing that the crossark version is showing these but can't see anything on xbox. Please advise - now's the time to start playing in this corner of functionality and am really hopeful for some positive news. Thanks
  2. Is this possible at all? My local PGM works well on Linux machine. Then I try to use my map on my dedicated Ubuntu server (with help of instructions on the Internet). But it crushes on every connection attempt. It catches signal 11 and outputs "Segmentation fault". The Island works totally fine on server. Is it supposed to work?
  3. I have been searching for months for a super flat world on the pgm but every time I try using the settings someone has given, it puts me in the air, with no land but ocean. Is there any up to date settings that work? Please, I really want a flat world to build on and create stuff! Edit: And I don't mean the entire land itself just the island. I don't mind oceans around my flat land island
  4. So ever since the PGM extinction servers have been release on xbox, there has been a HUGE decrease in active players on those servers. And when I say huge I am meaning they went from max servers every month down to only have 5-10 players tops. You may just blame the fact that the PGM maps are bad and that's why nobody is playing them but I don't believe that to be the case here. Everyone I talk to loves the idea of PGM resetting every month like that but there are a few issues surrounding these maps that turns people away. First of all, the issues with joining really makes people give up on their first try. On xbox for some reason ANYTIME you attempt to join one of these servers (50% when joining normal officials) the game will just sit there saying "Joining Session...". So normally what people do is sit there waiting for 30 minutes it says that you can't connect and they retry. Well for some reason if you go to your network settings on xbox, make your console go offline for 10 seconds and go back online you will instantly get into the servers and this works for any server on the official list... In my eyes this is the biggest thing that needs to get fixed, as loading the PGM takes about 15 minutes in itself nobody wants to wait 45 minutes to join for their first time. Super discouraging. Secondly, The fact that there are NO x plant seed spawns or beaver dam spawns on ANY PGM map. I do believe I have seen a beaver spawn on PGM ext 1 but I have never seen a beaver damn. Resources are super scarce on these maps. The best way to get CP used to be to tame an Achatina on there, but since now you have to get giant bee honey to tame those its impossible. Giant bee hives do not spawn anywhere on PGM maps so no way to get CP really other than killing insects. Then you come into the problem of PGM maps never having swampland, stopping you from really finding any bugs anywhere. Also no frogs so you can't get easy CP that way either. I have seen megatheriums spawning so I guess that would be the best way of getting chitin on these servers atm. People usually get raided every night on these servers simply bc of the fact that you can hardly set up defense. No x plants on the map take away the beginning defense most people set up. Leaving your base super vulnerable to attacks from grenades since they break stone down so easy and are easy to make. The third major problem on these servers is the EXTREMELY uneven ground. I know it's randomly generated but like come on, can't someone go over the map with a smoothing tool before you put them on an official extinction server. 75% of the time people attempt to spawn in you get stuck in the ground bc of some deep dip that's shaped like a diamond going into the ground. There is no way to jump out of this, also yuo can't eat your poo bc you are considered to be in free fall preventing you from eating. If you want to even attempt to play on the server after getting stuck you have to wish to god some dino will come kill you or else you'll be stuck in the ground for the next hour waiting for your man to starve out or something. Even if you leave the server after getting stuck and rejoin you cannot create a new character since it spawns you back into the man you already created. If you manage to survive without getting stuck you'll most likely die after running a few feet anyway. Alphas take over the whole map since nobody has a way of killing them. Alpha rexs carnos and raptors team up to kill everything you own. Also Large carnivore spawns seem a little too much as anytime I down a tame and come back there is a rex eating it. Also the rexs just walk over your spikes since the ground is so unlevel everywhere making it hard to keep them way. I have had friends try spawning in for 15 minute periods, dying EVERY SINGLE TIME because they have to look at their implant and stuff before they can move. Also you can't really have any safe methods of travel since there are alpha leedsichthys literally everywhere on those maps. If you take land you get eaten by rexs and alphas. Take water you are killed by leeds, not rly anything that low level noobs can fight. Especially since rex saddle takes lvl 74, it is so hard to get to a high level on that. The last huge problem that I'm going to offer here is that randomly while you are playing on these servers you will get a HUGE drop in frame rate. This drop is bigger than any I've seen on ark and it does not go away, I have sat there for 30 minutes waiting for the frames to pick back up but you literally get 1 frame per 10 seconds and it doesn't stop. The only way to get back to normal is by closing out the ARK app and re-opening it then rejoining the server. There aren't really any triggers as far as I can tell and it happens to me on 4 separate official PGM servers.
  5. Hey, I've been having problems with my PGM. In single player, i have to make a new survivor, and it really sucks to start over every time. Tell me if you guys have any tips about this
  6. Hey I would have asked this on the forum explaining the commands but replies have been disabled so I decided to ask here, do the admin spawn commands where you can add, subtract or manipulate dino spawns to a specific biome work on xbox one??? for example: " ConfigAddNPCSpawnEntriesContainer=(NPCSpawnEntriesContainerClassString="DinoSpawnEntriesBeach_PGM_C",NPCSpawnEntries=( (AnEntryName="GigaSpawner",EntryWeight=1000.0,NPCsToSpawnStrings=("Gigant_Character_BP_C"))), NPCSpawnLimits=( (NPCClassString="Gigant_Character_BP_C",MaxPercentageOfDesiredNumToAllow=0.01) ) ) This will ADD a Giganotosaurus Spawner to the PGARK's beach spawner, but limiting it to only 1 Giga per spawner (via the NPCSpawnLimits): " Appreciate this inquiry being answered, Thank you!,
  7. Extinction reset map timing

    Hello, I have both a question and a suggestion. I never ever played on a extinction server, they are PGM maps as I know. It makes me these servers attractive, but... The reset times, they are the problem. I've heard that they reset every month, for me, it would be even more attractive if they reset every 3 or 6 months. Not everyone play 24/7 and 1 month is a short time to have fun on these servers (ik fun and ark doesnt match lol). So, lets discuss. Do you guys agree?
  8. Hi, survivors! Have any small tribes or alone players, for consolidate to play in one of PGM server on PS4? At now i get started form adult community for play in the 1 PGM servers. I hope, we can get new game experience together in this servers type! Best Regards, Red October tribe
  9. Hello there, I'm trying to build a PGM map on xbox but I'm having problems trying to convert the Erosion Iterations from PC to xbox. On Xbox we do not have ErosionIterations, for Erosion we have " Erosion Steps/ Erosion Strength/ Deposition Strength ". If someone knows how to convert this setting please let me know. Here is the PGM server I'm attempting to build.

  10. I've created a few PG maps that I love! However, after 2-3 hours of playing the game crashes, then when I try to load back up it crashes faster and faster (if it loads at all) Anyone else having this issue? Or know when they're doing their next update to PGMs? Thx!
  11. Good afternoon! Along with the standard Xbox PGM issues (crashing during generation/hosting launch, spawning inside rock/trees, getting stuck occasionally when colliding with the environment) I've got a new problem that started after the latest update. All of my 'Favorites' settings saved from previous PGM attempts have gone back to 'UNUSED'. This error keeps repeating itself, and is quite heartbreaking. Re-trying to generate a map and tweaking a value or two after dashboarding is one thing, having to re-enter every setting manually each attempt via Xbox controller is quite another. [Edit] Welp, looks like they're saving like normal again, I'm not really sure what I did before. If I'm feeling saucy later I'll try to recreate the problem. For now, though, I'll keep my settings thank you very much. [/Edit] I've also been unable to launch a dedicated PGM session since the update. Other than that, I do believe performance and load/render time has improved as planned. You guys are doing great work, don't let a couple of bumps get you down! I'll try to keep this thread updated. Much love, -Craigasaur
  12. Player dedicated PGM Experiences Does people here have experiences with PGM on a private server? Thinking about switching from the island to a pgm map on our comunity server. Please share youre thoughts.
  13. (PC) PGM Official Extinction Audio Bug? Had this issue on two different Official Extinction PGM servers, have not noticed it occur in singleplayer PGM (it's a bore so I didn't thoroughly test there,) definitely doesn't occur on standard Official PVP servers, or Unnofficial Servers across any of the various maps available. The Issue: Load screen audio gets stuck on once the game loads in, all other audio plays, but is overlapped to the load screen audio. On the first day playing on each of the servers I had no issues, first load nothing, and 4 or 5 reloads into the server, again no problems. Second day, first load in the problem began, and has persisted on all subsequent loads into server. Have restarted PC, Steam, Ark, even audio drivers, nothing (so far) has corrected this. Submitted a support ticket that I am waiting on a response for (am not expecting it to be quick,) but was wondering/hoping others have run into this and perhaps found a solution. Am going to try some further troubleshooting and will update OP as needed.
  14. It's been over 30 days and the new patch has come out; my friends and I are eagerly awaiting the next extinction reset. Hopefully this thread will get the attention of someone at Wildcard, but probably not. I know there's a lot on your plate Wildcard, but those of us who play extinction would really appreciate some heads up on the extinction resets, since they don't seem to be exact/consistent, and the timer is broken anyways. Is there any information/news on when extinction servers are resetting for Xbox?
  15. Biome variances that aren't featured on the Island. There's a whole desert and oasis thing happening on Scorched Earth, a volcano, a floating island, and an underground world in the center. If it's even possible, all of these being added to PGM would make it that much more diverse and explorable. Of course I'm talking about after you optimize and iron out the bugs of the current iteration of PGM. I'm thinking there should be a tab in the PGM map variables that disables specific creatures from generating spawn points. There should be a tab in the main game's variable options specifically for dinosaurs and beacons. Giving the possibilities on whether certain dinos exist/replacing their spawn points with other dinos, whether you're able to tame them, whether you're able to ride them, what their drop tables include. Same for the beacons, being able to change their loot tables and what beacon tiers spawn, for example, disabling ascendant and mastercraft beacons. I have no idea how hard it would be to code in these extra details, but if it's possible, maybe think about it. Some of these things are in admin console commands I understand, but out of convenience for server hosting or even single player customization, it would be amazing to see this with UI like the other options. As for engrams, that text-based choice system could use its' own tab as click based options on a list, maybe even splitting it so that the player/admin could disable specific tiers for each engram. For example, players being able to make mastercraft cloth armor, journeyman hide, primitive everything else.
  16. So when PGM's first released, it was a unique thing to do alwhile trying to understand how it works, and in the first few times it worked. However, eventually my PGM's stopped working. Now when i try to create a PGM, it's essentially spawning me either 1) outside of the map with no way in or 2) no map and just water, literally just water. In both cases, my character spawns in the air, and even with using commands, it has no use. Anyone else have this problem? Suggestions or advice?
  17. So no matter how I change the settings, I cant seem to find the one I'm looking for. I want a mostly flat grasslands, with mountains every so often, like a karst landscape. the water settings has me off a bit too, Id like to have more rivers and or ponds/lakes but can't seem to find a good setting for those either instead of having larger bodies of land surrounded by water. Any tips or pointers would be much appreciated.
  18. So I've been working on a PGM and all of the spawns spawned me in the same spot with a Rex and wolves everywhere. So I went and tweaked the spawn regions 2 separate times and the 1st time I only ended up with one spawn point....the 2nd time I didn't have any so it just spawns me in the center of the map. Is it 0.0-1.0? Because I tried it where 0.2 would = somewhere around 20long or lat on the map.....that failed. Is there an explanation out there somewhere?
  19. PGM Issues

    I GENERATED A MAP AND IT LOOKS AMAZING!!!! (XBOX NOT PC) Too bad I cannot play it. I thought I would share my experience with you guys as I have been playing Ark since the beginning and have been waiting for this feature for quite some time. Honestly, Ark, amazing job at this new feature, I just wish it actually worked. Here are the issues, please help us get these bugs corrected so we can finally start playing Ark again: Before I begin, take a look at this crazy map I generated! I mean, I was so excited to play this and host this as a dedicated server! It is too bad this is unplayable, in fact, I cannot even re-load the map even though it has already been generated. Here are the issues for anyone trying to achieve what I am trying to achieve (host a dedicated PGM) The Issues: It takes anywhere from 10 minutes to 25 minutes to generate a single map, seriously, I have timed this. I was able to play 5 ranked matches of overwatch before generating a single map. Think of generating a PGM like playing primitive plus and multiply the time it takes to load primitive by 5 (minus the crashing) You may be able to generate a map but playing on it is near impossible. Even when the map is generated, you will take 20-40 minutes to load the map, keep in mind I have fiber optic speed at 80MB/s with the brand new Xbox One S. The game will most likely crash when it says (writing to cache) at the last second even if you have waited 30 minutes. I have tested this 26 times now, thinking, it was at all possible, it is not. YOU CANNOT HOST A DEDICATED PGM AT THE MOMENT, LET ALONE PLAY ONE. If you do get one hosted, good luck getting your players to join, it won't happen, I was in a party with 6 people trying to load my map and every one of them could not pass the generating terrain loading screen, a couple times people got it but it was very rare. Conclusion: This feature is amazing, however, at the current moment it should not even be in the game, you cannot play, load or enjoy this new feature at all, I spent 4 hours this Saturday waiting for maps to generate only to be unplayable. There is a reason you are not seeing any PGM's in the dedicated server discussions! Nobody can actually get one up and running. If you have one up and running please tell me and I will be amazed. What needs to be done on Ark's side: Stop promising us features that are half-baked, if you are a contractor, would you build a house and give it to the owner half complete? No. I would rather get this feature when it is fully functional then pissing off your loyal customers, getting them excited and then leaving them in the dirt. Fix the loading time! I get it, it takes a while to generate a map, that is fine, at least work on the time just a bit! 30 minutes to load or generate is out of the question. Actually, make the map playable. Let us know the limits of all of the options, I believe these settings can easily break the map, making it so it does not load. Let us know the max limits so it atleast works. What I need from you guys! Please let me know your experience with PGM's. Voice your opinion in hopes that ARK sees this post and begins to work on these issues.
