*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."

google should be your first stop. Check what kind of ferns were common. Their not that much different from modern ferns though in reality. As for making the fern, speedtree can help you out here.

Sorry for the late response is just that I have been very bussy. K so I have this huge project on my hands, it pretty much overhauls ark fauna, my creatures are fairly hard to tame so Im making some items that will help, what I want to do is a fern as a custom resource, the problem is that I dont know how I will make this Mesozoic themed fern model, you know like on which fern it being based on, the kind of texture and that stuff, in case you want to know a little more I have a discord page.

The NE part of the map is a desert.
The Geeky Gamer Oct 17 @ 1:36am 
Well, come getting a flyer, I realise that "desert regions" is not exactly descriptive...
The Geeky Gamer Oct 17 @ 12:09am 
Just wanted to know where I could find sand on this map? Jumped on foe the first time and landed in the desert regions, and I found cactus sap easily enough, but haven't seen any sand nodes.

I did some of them. What did you need help with?
MrTroodon Oct 12 @ 1:27pm 
You did the flora meshes? Im trying to do some mesozoic looking ferns for my mod so some advice would help.

Nope. I have slowed down a bit on Roraima for sure but I haven't abandoned it yet. I've been working on a rework of the foliage, which can take awhile.
