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!

@Odin Yeah I agree with that assessment. I think after this next update I will focus on detailing certain areas. Lots more to add, thanks for all the suggestions. Next update will be a professional looking chitin gather cave eta next week.

Long time fan of the Madagascar map, however I have to agree with Josey Wales...lack of reasonable building sites is a turn-off to players. Seems visually nice, but lack of good building sites is preventing me from wanting to play on this map.

Thanks for responding so quick, iv been playing now for just over an hour and i have to say its a fantastic map (from what iv explored) but the only problem is finding resources, is there a map i can look at for where there is resources.

@Speedy Yes, Madagascar uses default spawns, so it should be compatible.

silly question but can this work with pugnacia dinos
Hey my team rules!  [author] Jul 29 @ 10:19am 
@Josey Wales That's a fair point. We can fix that when there's more multiplayer testing. The issue with Valhalla was that the landscape was formatted improperly iirc. We can easily edit the landscape and create more flat spots. If you want to join the discord channel, we can talk more about your experience and suggestions.

Don't take this wrong, I looked over the map briefly and while it is looking great I think you are making the same mistake they did in Valhalla and that was not enough flat spots to build on throughout the map especially in mountains etc.

@bazingaArk Are you searching in the ocean for pearls? They are generally located on the coastal reef.

@scaledwolf I haven't read any reports of that lately. If you want, join the discord or add me on steam and I can help you sort out the problem.
