*Work in progress!*

Roraima is a map for ARK: Surivival evolved, aprox. the size of the main game map "TheIsland," featuring a temperate rainforest climate. The inspiration for this map is the tabletop mountain, also called a Tapuy, "Roraima" in South Eastern Venezuela. Or Brazil. Depends on who you ask.
Generally I tired to make the map more "prehistoric" then ARK's "Island" map and in line with the mesezoic era.


-Map to load?


-I'm running a server and can't get the map to load! Help?
Apparently the map sometimes will not load using the universal command -ModMapID=547828060.
Some server providers have had luck using a "Roraima?listen" command.
Thanks to for letting me know!
Beyond that I don't have experience with running a server, check with your server provider.

**Also apparently adding "/Game/Mods/547828060/maps/Roraima" as a launch parameter works as well for some people. The map location is actually in a maps folder, which I guess shouldn't be the case.

-How complete is this map?
80%. Though a % can be misleading because the final 20% could still take awhile.

-How big is the map?
Slightly smaller then "TheIsland"

-Are there Wyverns?

-What dinos/creatures are on the map?
Most, including Scorched Earth content.
If something is missing and you think it is needed let me know!

-What resources are available?
All resources from the vanilla game plus Scorched Earth resources are already present on the map, or will be added soon. Resources, aside from the basic resources, include oil, crystal, salt, sulphur, cactus sap,
sand, silk. Also rare resources such as rare mushrooms and plant species X.

-Caves? Where?
Caves are getting added soon, stay tuned.

-Where are the artifacts? Obilisks?
Caves and artifacts go hand in hand, so they will be added as needed when a cave is complete.
Obilisks will be getting added as well.


Please feel free to comment, critique, and make suggestions.

Gameplay Hints:
-Rare resources are mostly found in specific areas, not spread all across the map. Look for cliffsides and rocky outcrops to find metal. Crystal can be found typically near metal deposits. All resource locations are subject to change.
-Crystal can be found in small quantities anywhere with large concentrations of rocks
-Obsidian can rarely be found downstream in dry creek beds, where it was washed from the tabletop mountain.
-The largest deposits of obsidian are at the top of the tabletop mountain, however crystal, obsidian, and metal can also be found in large concentrations in caves.
-No caves of decent size currently. They will be getting added.
-All of the new foliage is harvestable.
-Get silicone from clams, which can be found in large numbers in specific parts of the map.
-Oil can anly be found underwater in a few locations right now.
-Watch out for Piranhas, they are deadly.

**Second-place winner of the 2016 "Ark Worldwide Mod Contest" in the map catagory!
Thank you to everyone who has made suggestions to make the map better, everyone who voted of course, and all the other modders who helped pave the way!

"Although Roraima doesn’t have the following of some of the other maps in the workshop, it absolutely blew us away! The naturalistic land formations and the strategic layout of this map makes it a standout entry in the category. While it isn’t as big as some of the other maps, it is clearly a map that makes you feel like you’ve been transported to a real-life area in the world. The team were literally shocked at the natural beauty in this map."

Good- It's a large map with some cool areas that are unique to this map. It was recently updated according to this mod description.
Not so good- it still lacks some defined textures. I was teleported when I went in a cave like area. The ocean is difficult to make out depth due to the water being clear. Dino spawning seems off, too few types of dino's? Needs more trees.
Looks like this is a work in progress but the map has a great deal of potential once completed or closer to completion. I look forward to viewing it again later but for now will take it out of my custom ark map list. Honestly, this should be given a chance now for some who won't mind the above and in the future once more changes are made. Great start by developer. I'm sure this is not the only project this person(s) has to work on and we will all have to be patient.

Will this map have all creatures spawning?

Red, glad to see you are working on the map again. What I played some time ago, was a beautiful map, then ruined, but I still have hope that you will revive this map to a beautiful state again. I even done a few YouTube videos using your map back in the day. I will check from time to time to see what progress you have made.

My GOAL is the end of next week. The update will be by no means a complete map, but will be a good base for me to continue work into the future. I can't predict what bugs I may need to iron out first before making it public though.

So red when can we begin to get our hopes up for an update? :)
