"Ragnarok_Lobby_Jackson" not loading

This was not a problem yesterday, but after removing my mods in singleplayer, the map will no longer load. It freezes while loading the Ragnarok_Lobby_Jackson file.

I have no idea if it has to do with the mods being removed, map update, etc. but it is definitely a hindrance. I've not tested in multiplayer yet, but I will if required. Thank you for any future replies!

This is an issue with any map. Any time you host and need to remove mods it is recommended to remove all your personal saves and start over. If you add or remove after starting a map you risk greater instability. To remove save profiles go to {hard drive}\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\SavedArksLocal\

The map you are working with will need to be removed here. There should be one for each. E.g. the island will start with the island, Ragnarok with Ragnarok, procedural, will have an ID.

Not all mods are stable either so you could rename the file and try a new map with nothing. If it does not crash you know it is a mod, you can then phase in mods slowly to determine which one is causing the issue, or go to the steam workshop and do research on each mod. The community is good at reporting bugs with a mod to the developers of that mod. Good mods will have a sticky to a bug forumn.
