Enhance Ark instance config

There are two major enhancements that would be nice to have the app support for Ark instances:

  • clustering of multiple ark instances (usually used in context of different maps that you can export yourself to at beacon towers) .. This is not clustering servers, it's a specific way maps and instances are installed as a 'cluster' (same server is fine) where you can transfer between maps at will.

  • Map selection drop-down . . The map names in Ark are very specific, and some are seemingly illogical.. so it would be a lot easier to be able to select config options like Map type (e.g. 'TheCenter', 'TheIsland', 'Ragnarok' and 'ScorchedEarthP' [note the "P" in the Scorched Earth map name]) from a drop-down.

FWIW, the clustering bit is not as large or complex as it probably sounds. The gist of their clustering is having multiple instances running that can reach a single shared witness folder and starting the ark with a cluster flag in the command line options list.

I second this suggestion, anyone know of any work around to cluster multiple ark instances?
