Madagascar Evolved is a custom map based on the diverse biomes of Madagascar. It has been in development since February 2016 and won 4th place in the Ark Modding Contest for maps in April. Our design is focused on bringing the natural beauty and primal intensity of real life environments to Ark. It uses a unique blend of custom assets and textures to deliver a quality environment that feels real and rewards exploration. One way we implement this design is by using canyons and terraces as vistas along side massive plains so that large packs of dinosaurs can move around in four directions without getting stuck. The landscape is derrived from satellite imagery and photorealistic textures are used to attribute a geological history to the land, as if it were shaped by real ecological processes.
Madagascar Evolved is slightly larger than the island. It uses all the dinosaurs from both the vanilla island and Scorched Earth DLC. It is compatible with all major mods including Extinction Core and Primitive+.

Scorched Earth is not required to play Madagascar Evolved.
Please like and favorite if you enjoy the map. Thanks!

@chazzmac The OpenGL version of the landscape is currently being substituted for the Default, which is why you are missing several textures. The only reason you can see it now is because there is a hard limit on the number of texture samples that OpenGL can refrence, and with a recent update that number was reduced on the map. I will try to clean up the look for the OpenGL landscape.

how are the Linux texures project comeing? Did you figure out what made it work and have you figured out where and how to apply this "happy accedent" on whole map? If so, can we expect to see the result in the upcomming update?

@Roryson For now gigas spawn in the eastern jungle. They are hidden in the trees, so if you are going to land there, check around first.

Love this map it's really awesome. I know it's not finished, and i'm flying around looking for dinos that i am not sure exist.
Have not found any gigantosaurus anywhere, does anyone know where the spawn location for these are? or how i could figure it out. Thanks.

Oh yeah thanks for the effort. I think a lot of people would appreciate it. There have been some recent comments in the discord, as well, asking for a resource map. The tool that Exliog made will be convinient whenever resource locations inevitably change. @evilenterprizez Yes! I was so happy to see how they turned out. I will definitely adjust the spawn locations of hyenas.

@Author - Hope I didn't come offend. I actually started mapping out my own resource map in photoshop because I figured if no one else has, I could. I stopped though, seems like that tool will be much more efficient and give better results. Thanks for helping and responding!

Back playing this map after a long time. Luv it. The daytime sky only happens when it rains. Also i hope to see Hyaenodons in the middle. The high lvl Woolly Rhino's are a bit of a worry. Keep it up. :)

@!aNEMY There is a tool out now that scans for resources and automatically maps them. I'll have a resource map out sometime this week.
