I'm really enjoying you're map but lately I've been looking for underwater loot crates but I have not been able to find any. Are there any and if not is that something you would be adding later on?

@DagriN if i'm not mistaken, it should be a game issue, so only WC can fix it.

@sicco0803 Is there a known issue with Wyvern eggs not spawning since Extinction released? I have tried everything i can think of to prompt them to spawn and they are no longer appearing. Restart, dino wipe, keeping a character nearby to ensure the wyverns render, killing all the wyverns ans waiting for respawns.

@sicco0803 do you have a list somewhere of every single dino that spawns on this map?
Sicco0803  [author] Nov 13 @ 3:17pm 
@Zaphod4th i try to answer every question, but it's not always that easy. Also my rl work keeps me a bit busy since 2 weeks. What questions are unanswered?
Zaphod4th Nov 13 @ 11:57am 
So many questions unanswered on your discussion section makes me wonder how good your support is.
Sicco0803  [author] Nov 13 @ 1:37am 
you will find all patch notes here

The next update is planned in December.

@Sicco0803 Is this constantly updated? Also being the last update was a month ago? or was it a minor update not requiring patch notes? thanks

Hey! I installed it on a server (nitrado :D) but when I try to join it says "Wrong 'total conversation' mod. Restart game with ModEye?" It works in singleplayer even without the add-on, but it doesn't work on the server even with the add-on. Also when I agree to restart the game with ModEye it restarts, crashes, restarts, crashes and so on.... help?

I agree extinction dinos and resources would be amazing :)
