Current Version: v.1.7.1

Welcome to ARK: The Chasm!
Waking up on The Chasm you will find yourself in an abandoned and destroyed ARK. This ARK suffered a fate similar to Aberration.
The past survivors on "The Chasm" pulled back their structures and cities into the Fertile Caverns and narrower cave systems to stand a better chance at defending themselves from the dangerous creatures and the hostile enviroment. Skilled Survivors may be able to still find some of the old ruins in the caverns of the map which they left before they went into hiding due to weird circumstances..

There is a huge chasm dividing nearly the entire map, as if the ARK had almost been torn apart, bringing a new challenge for survivors to face.
It once seemed to have been a very lively ARK and populated by a variety of life forms. Some of them mutated strongly to adapt to the new living conditions. Others found new habitats, to which they had to adapt only slightly.

Please do not build in unfinished areas otherwise your builds might be destroyed in updates later on. This map is a work in progress at this point. Keep that in mind.

Lots of comments to answer, thank you all already, was very busy the last couple of days!

@Crowfooted The next update contains huge FPS improvements so hopefully that will be gone with the next patch!

@Parceble There is oil on the surface (quite small oil rocks) and oil in the actual chasm deep down near the element river. Other oil sources are Trilobites and Tek Creatures.

@realityx7 Basilisks can be found somewhat often if you know where to look for them. The blue zone got more than the fertile area of course, etc.

@Freeman Thanks, glad you enjoy the new update! With the portal area you could have spotted something that will arrive later on ;)

hey @trappel22
I took a closer look at the map after 1.7 was released and....damn i am impressed, the radiation zone is huge and looks really amazing. You really deserved a top 3 in the mod contest (No. 1 in my opinion)
One thing i noticed in the fertile area, especially when compairing to abberation, is that, a lot of height levels are not accesible by natural ziplines. A lot of ziplines connect heights of the same level. So without the rockdrake it seems hard to access all the different height levels in the fertile area.

So excited to see this map getting further completed, i even took a glance at a portal-like area in the spectator, looking forward to see if or how it will be integrated

Can basilisks be found in any meaningful number here? Trying to get a fang, wondering if its easier than aberration
Parceble Aug 4 @ 6:52pm 
Where is the oil? I've looked everywhere excepted the radiation cavern. I even went up top on the surface. Any help would be appreciated!

I really like this map idea and aberration still my favorite map. For everyone, add reapers, hazardous area and i have a question, what is those veins youre talking about?

Me and a buddy are playing this map for the first time tonight and we're noticing a lot of framerate chugging whenever we look in the direction of where the chasm is.

We thought it might be the biolum area but we can look at most areas of the biolum; it only chugs when we look towards a specific place, towards the south-west of the fertile region, and down a little bit. We're assuming that's where the chasm is since we haven't actually been down there yet.

The only place we can play where it seems to be "out of range" of whatever it is that's causing the lag is at the mushroom lake area - no framerate drop at all directly at the lake but venture a little bit into the center of the map and it begins to chug.

Obviously it's still a WIP and really great work, I'm your biggest fan. Just wanted to note it here, if there's a better place to note it please let me know.
