9 Best Ark Map Mods for Newbies [2021]

After playing countless gore games, it’s super important to include an open-world game in your weekly schedule.

Even though I’ve played dozens of open-world games, no other game can get past the amazing experience I had with ARK: Survival Evolved.

ARK: Survival Evolved is like another open-world game but with an exploration of a lifetime. It’s a great game for a new player but if you’ve played this game before, you may find its landscape to be too familiar.

In a game, that’s not a good thing to have. Luckily, just when everything around the game starting to get stale, its super active community introduced ark map mods.

Thereby adding a much-needed change to the scenery.

Now, coming to this post, going forward in this post, I’ll list some of the best ARK maps for beginners. Let’s get started:

9 Best Ark Map Mods

Structure Plus

After crafting different items in Minecraft, I was used to all this. And when playing ARK: Survival Evolved, I did the same thing.

But that was a mistake on my part. I didn’t know about this until I read on Reddit.

All you need to do is download this best ark map mod and you’ve got everything covered.

Ultimately, this mod will redefine the way you build in the ark and changes the overall core mechanics of the game.

Platform Plus

This ark map mod is essentially used to add the best platforms into the game.

You can use this open-source map mod to create your mods without adding any attributes to them.

Death Recovery Mod

Similar to hearthstone and gravestones in Minecraft, gravestones are a cool addition in ARK: Survival Evolved.

To add gravestones in the game, you must have the death Recovery mod installed along with the game.

Madagascar Evolved

To be honest, I always wanted to visit Madagascar one day. And using the Madagascar Evolved map mod, you can get an experience quite similar to give you the feel of a real Madagascar.

In this mod, the author has added photorealistic textures to introduce the authentic geological architecture of the place.

The Volcano

The Volcano map mod comes with:

  • 5 biomes – Snow, Redwood Forest, Grass/Jungle, Desert, and Swamp.
  • Engrams and dinosaurs if Scorched Earth.
  • Base game material.
  • Variety of difficulties for the exploration part in the game.
  • When this mod is active, you can even see cute-looking baby dinosaurs.

And most important of all, I can’t explain the exact experience you’ll have by watching the stunning lava cascade and majestic view nearby many forests surrounding it.

Domination Rex

Oh my!

Add this mod in ARK: Survival Evolved and you’ll add Indominus Rex for the Jurassic World available in the game.

It’s a pretty big deal as you can’t get ARK Indominus Rex in the Jurassic Survival game.

This mod isn’t recommended if you don’t like the Jurassic world and don’t want to have anything related to it in this game.


Glassmetal add-on can be used to add a new type of block within the game.

The new addition will be made up of metal and glass. You would be able to use the glass part to peak into it.

Awesome Spyglass

Normally, I wear glasses in real life. And it’s a great addition if you want to get a close experience of spyglass within the game.

The awesome Spyglass mod in ARK: Survival Evolved will make this happen for you.

Note: In case, you need to make certain changes to the spyglass, you can customize it as per your preference.

Castle, Keeps, and Fortresses

You can use this mod if you want to create medieval structures using a whole new set of crafting blocks and place them anywhere you want.

The best thing to note here is that even if you’re a newbie or aren’t that good builder, you’ll enjoy building the structures. It’ll be like Minecraft all over again.

Crazy, isn’t it?
