Ark: Survival Evolved – Procedurally Generated Map (Patch 248 News)
Hi Guys and Welcome
Today i am coming to you with some ark:survival evolved News
Patch 248 for the game was released yesterday and the most important part of this patch, in my opinion is the function that they have added which allows players to create their own infinite procedurally generated maps. This function also comes with loads of customization options so you can create the kind of world you want.
Lets have a quick look at how this works.
To create a procedurally generated map, from the ark menu click on Host, You will then see a new button in the top left corner which will allow you to create a new procedurally generated map.
Click on this and it will take you into the options menu for you new map, you can change lots of things here.
You can change the map seed to whatever you want and then set different values for your world such as water frequency, mountain heights and grass density. You can also set locations for different regions and locations for biomes.
There are a lot of options to play with here.
Below you have options to reset all the values to default or randomize them.
Once you have the settings how you want them you can generate your map by clicking host.
This obviously takes longer than starting a normal world so be patient.
Once it is generated you will have the option to select or create a character and then jump into the world.
The developers have been very clear that this function is highly experimental and that anyone utilizing it should expect to have their save data wiped with future updates so i do not recommend that you make any long term plans for your new world at this point.
If you enjoyed this video i would really appreciate it if you subscribed to my channel and checked out some of my other content.
Thanks for watching, Peace!

Ark: Survival Evolved is an action-adventure survival game that uses a first-person perspective, with the ability to use a third-person perspective in some instances. To survive, players must establish a base, with a fire and weapons; additional activities, such as taming and feeding dinosaurs, requires more resources. The game’s map, known as the “Ark”, is approximately 48 square kilometers in size there is approximately 36 square kilometers of land mass, with 12 square kilometers of ocean.
To build a base, players must gain structure components-such as floors, doors and windows-which are earned as they progress and gain levels. These components can be crafted and placed in the world. Players can create any structure, as long as they have the logistics and resources; the structural integrity of the building is compromised when the pillars and foundations are destroyed. Players can also craft items in the game, such as weapons, which can be achieved by collecting the resources and technology required for crafting. In addition, players can craft and attach accessories to their weapons, such as a scope or flashlight for a pistol or machine gun. Should players take damage, their health meter will gradually regenerate if they have consumed the necessary food, or if they craft items that regenerate the health meter at a faster pace.
There are sixty species of dinosaurs in the game. Dinosaurs in the game can be tamed by feeding them food after they have been rendered unconscious, or by using kibble designed especially for each species. Once a dinosaur is tamed, players can utilize the dinosaur’s abilities, such as flight or fast underwater movement, as well as its statistics, such as speed, health and damage. When riding atop a creature, players lose control of their personal weapons. With the larger dinosaurs, however, other players can ride on the side with full control of their weapons. They can also be used to carry items, and players can issue offensive and defensive commands to them; for example, a pack of Utahraptors can be assigned to defend the base, or a group of Triceratops can be ordered to attack an enemy’s base. The game also features various other species, such as the dodo, saber-toothed cat, woolly mammoth, and Titanomyrma.
