Terra Nova Initia

WARNING THIS MAP IS INCOMPLETE AND WILL NEVER BE FINISHED, IT IS FAR TO BIG FOR ARK AND WAS A LEARNING PROJECT, out of respect for those who play this map it will not be deleted. play this map at your own risk


Terra Nova Initia is a custom map for ARK survival evolved. The map features a "U" shaped continent filled with islands. On this map you can expect to find several vulcanos with flowing lava rivers and lavafalls, ruins of ancient cities and wonders several lakes and waterfalls, vast jungles and caves as well as much much more.

So far this map has been completly hand drawn, this means i did not use any world generation programs to make any of my landscapes, This way i can get them exactly how i want them, It does however take alot longer to make and big landscape updates happen abit slower.

If you find an issue with my map or find that something is lacking or that you simply have a suggestion then please let me know and i will adress it asap, most cases i can have problems fixed and patched within a day, so with your help i hope we can make this into a really great map that everyone can enjoy.

Miniture version of this map can be found at the link below, containing only the smaller islands


Known Issues

- the In-game map still shows main ARK map (Figuring out the scale will take some trial and error, It is being worked on)

- Ambient sounds are not included yet

- Some Obelisks are not complete or functional, For now they act only as landmarks for navigation

- Unable to build in some caves

- You can hear the rain, you can get wet but you cannot see the rain.. It must be magic rain

- Some dino locations are abit unbalanced and bugged. Some get 50+ crocs and some get 50+ rex's in certain locations, I have yet to replicate the issue or find a cause but i am aware

- Outdated


Upcoming planned features

- Alot of underwater content (Hidden ruins, cave systems and several small interesting locations)
- Caves both small and big
- Massive underground cave (north west of the desert)
- Snow biome (North west)
- Desert biome (South east)
- Swamp biome (south)
