*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.

FAQ

-Map to load?
Roraima

-ModID?
547828060

-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 https://www.craftandsurvive.com 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?
Nope

-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."

Well i do believe you have skills that lead to a beautiful map, have you thought about starting a new map, something the size of the island. I was thinking if i had the skill I would build a smaller map with some of the areas that i love most from the DLCs and here is the kicker i wouldnt add all the DLC content like some maps try to do but a little from each... you dont need every dino from every dlc thats crazy but a few from each, some cool points from each. Like no map has the sulfur fields from extinction, but those are amazing, The ocean biome in Genesis is by far the best water area on any map, and deserves some love in a unofficial....and so on

Thanks Toxxiksilver, the issue wasn't really life getting in the way so much as me having to redo large portions of the map because wildcard changes something in the dev kit. I got sick of redoing it. The map was remade almost from scratch three times because of this. That said, I do have a work in progress version that seems pretty stable, I hope to get it releases eventually but really can't make a statement as to when yet.

I hate to say this but this map had so much potential. I see this all the time, so many maps when the mod contest or get sponsored and then basically end up like this with no updates, not complete and all. I get real life gets in the way but its such a shame when so many people start maps that have potential just to let them never be finished.... i think there are maybe about 5 truly completed unofficial maps left, and i wish this one had been completed it was one of my favorites, followed it from way back and then watched as it never got anymore updates. I am not in anyway bashing the Dev, like i said i understand life gets in the way and sometimes things fall to the side, just a shame is all.

Anyone still using this? I know persons said it was buggy and a bit barren though when it was at it's prime it was not particularly lush - nor was it meant to be like the island. I did note though that it actually got more green (which wasn't great in every biome). Is it like it was about two years ago?

this mod is just crap now.. awful, buggy, nothing works and is a shame, because it looks really good in the captures.
but as the own creator said, is no longer working on this mod.

What happened to this map it used to be so beautiful and lush and worth playing on even with the bugs. I was so surprised when I loaded in to it, cause now it looks all barren with hardly any greenery . I hope it is because of the WIP and it will go back to the gorgeous lush map it once was. keeping my fingers crossed. this was my favorite map to run my server on.

Will the map be finished?
RedEntropy  [author] Sep 28, 2019 @ 3:40pm 
I haven't updated the map in over a year so . . . I'm not currently working on the map.
