The way we load mods/maps is done via command line. As we don’t give direct access to the command line, requests would be made for changes via our support (Ticket, Live Support, Teamspeak). Most mods can be loaded via the ini file, so this isn’t generally an issue for our customers. Maps however are command line only, so the command line change must be requested and would be set on our end. For your map, this would need to be added to the command line to load it:
Once that’s set, the map’s files would need to be uploaded to the server’s /ShooterGame/Content/Mods folder using the FTP access (Recommended to use FileZilla or WinSCP to upload them)

Ill let you knwo when the dev kit is updated. That might be causing your issue.
Excited Kangaroo  [developer] Sep 5, 2015 @ 11:59pm 
Dev kit is updated to 206, ill make some changes and update. Let me know if anything changes.

Everything works perfectly if i use the map in singleplayer mode.

However, i also use the map on a Linux dedicated server and the grass textures disappeared.
We only see a checkered pattern.

I can provide the pass for this server if needed.(or a screenshot)

Making a bed at the south most island doesn't show up when you are in the respawn screen, I am assuming it's because the ingame map doesn't go that far down? Or is it only me (personal sever with a few friends).
Excited Kangaroo  [developer] Sep 7, 2015 @ 6:34pm 
Yeah, that's probably why. We will make a new I-game map when we are 100% done with the layout. Probably at 80% right now.

Unfortunately, my problem still occurs with the last update.

I tried a fresh install too but some textures like grass do not wish to be seen

I will setup my own linux server to check it out. Darkcloud also runs a linux server and has issues.
DarkCloud Sep 8, 2015 @ 6:18pm 
I haven't tested on the new build yet, but let me know what results you get. Also if you need to know my start script I can supply that as well. I download/install/managed everything through ASM remote.

how can i run this map on my server?? and will it then autoupdate?
Excited Kangaroo  [developer] Sep 11, 2015 @ 10:07am 
Party, I would use the ARK server tool.
partyanimal7 Sep 11, 2015 @ 10:09am 
does that also work on a rented server??
Excited Kangaroo  [developer] Sep 11, 2015 @ 10:10am 
Probably not,
