Current Version: 0.3.0

Welcome to Tartarus! A new map which is still a work in progress but the currently available areas will not receive bigger changes (unless there is something really important to fix).
The size of the map is similar to Ragnarok, bigger than The Island and Scorched Earth.
All Dinos will be available (and most of them are already)! All engrams are available (Island, SE, Aberration)!
The map centers around a Volcano which will be the name giving part of the map. There are 4 Obelisks on the map, one of them is bigger than the other ones, namely the one above the volcano. The topside progress is my current focus. The caves that exist are basically previews for what will come to the map at some point.
After finishing topside of Tartarus I will start to focus on the underwater parts and the caves.

There are Alpha Walls around the unfinished areas, so keep that in mind! Sry for that but that is the easiest way to block people from build there as these builds would most likely be destroyed later on.

Currently I update the map every 2-4 weeks with new areas/bug fixes and more!

Thanks for the kind words! And yeah, I always tend to go for quality over quantity in that case. I would not like to push out content really fast that I'm not happy with.
Syndan Dec 4 @ 12:45pm 
hey take your time, if everything looks the quality so far, its worth waiting for
Trappel22  [author] Dec 4 @ 8:03am 
Very glad you like them! Will sadly take some more time until that map is published, though. Only a side project and I dont really want to release it unnecessarily early. And I still got stuff to do on Tartarus ofc ;)

yah they look amazeballs, i love how they glow

@Syndan Oh are you talking about the ones I've shown on twitter? Because these were actually made for a new, unreleased map (a side project of mine)
I might create similar variants for Tartarus, though. Was much fun to build them.

I just found this and gotta say, its probably my new favorite map. I absoultely adore the rock elemental variants and I can't wait to tame one. Only question are they breedable????

@GlitcherPenguin Thank you very much for the honest feedback! I have to say that I do agree with a lot of what you've said. I started this map nearly one year ago and I've learned so much within that time that I would love to completely redo the entire map. Sadly that's very difficult to do (especially once the map is online and played by people). I appreciate the feedback very much and all I can do is try to make the new areas look as good as possible.

@FallyExOrDos There is oil veins in the desert and oil rocks in the lagoon underwater.

@SuicidalOldGuy Thanks a lot! :)

I really really want to like this map, but for the size its claimed to be, it really does not feel it, even with keeping the blocked areas in mind. Perhaps because the land is so...flat. There are hills and such, but that is about it. There is not much for craigs, canyons and so on except in very selected spots... leaving the lack of a natural feel. It does not leave much for beautiful vistas, the flow and roar of falls and so on. I am sure this is the complete intent, but just my two cents on this. It also feels so zoned without much blend.
