Map loads with play dough graphics no matter what I do with good specs and settings

Quote, "Wild dino babys"

Q: Does that mean this map would possibly conflict with the Natural Babies mod? I question it because that mod adds baby dinos to spawn points like this. And since both this map and that mod attempt to do the same thing or something similar...?

This map looks awesome, however after exploring for awhile by air and I saw the custom made resource map. I'm afraid there isn't enough resources, specifically metal to support building the Tek items. I don't want to waste my time if there is minimal resources.

I had a tek cave overspawn. No idea why, perhaps its some of the mods I am running.
Besides that, I have had a wonderful time with this map, its enjoyable. Imo needs work in some aspects as theres clipping in some areas, and it can be quick glitchy at times. 7.5/10!

hey does anyone have raptor or any other dinos over-spawning on all maps? If so do you know how to stop it?

@Legocraft887. No Gachas on this map.

I've seen Syntac play on this map in one of his series videos and it got me really intrigued to try it out in a server. Anyone that complains about it really doesn't see the amazing work you've put into it and therefore they are irrelevant. Keep up the great work!

Man, people are so ungrateful tbh. This is not payed content. Someone spent hundred of hrs during over 4 yrs doing this and people still complain like they own the rights for the map. Does anyone realize that 90% of the modded maps die far from even getting to 70% done?
So much demands and complaints. I feel sorry for mod creators.
