I love this map, but the one thing I do have to say is the Graphics are a little messed up. Rocks, tree's, building pieces all look weird. No other map does this for me... But still a great map.

Where are the Ice Wyvern egg's spawn location? do i have to enable ice wyverns in the map? if so, how do i do it?

I put more time into playing on this map than I did on Valguero.
Sure Valguero was super fun and all [it would have been much more if Wildcard didnt put restrictions on dinos and explorer notes] but both maps have their highs and lows. So far Volcano has a loooooooooooooot of highs. I mean, it just had 3 new islands put in with dinos, revamped a chunk of the land to accommodate for the Deinonycus and because they though it was a bit bland.
Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk

Going to agree strongly with Venox here! The maps (both Valguero and Volcano) are creative and have so much to offer. Ill agree Valguero has bugs it shouldn't and sure it needs to be addressed but Volcano is being and has been addressed. The absolute creativity to Volcano keeps us coming back because unlike Wildcard, you can count on this creater, modder.
Evgarrian I feel your frustration with maps you cant count on and a game that caters to those who grief others but the community of modders do this without any payment and love of a game. Take your rants to the creator of the game and not to those trying to make it playable for us.

@Evgarrian not sure why you felt to rant on here because that's simply not the right place for it. That being said, I love Valg and I love Volcano :)

This is perhaps the best map out there from 3rd party. Ofcourse its worse than valguero(which is piece of shit by itself, cant believe they added it on official server roster). And despite being the best map, its still such an utter shit. With so many years in development you still see hyperthermia 35c* in a SNOW region, you still see little island with 50 abberant stegos. The spread and balancing of spawns don't make any sense. Terrain is flat and boring, ALOT of eye sore from copy paste. No soul, no feeling when playing this map.

admincheat ce start/stop_electricalstorm
admincheat ce start/stop_rain
admincheat ce start/stop_fog
admincheat ce start/stop_wave (cold or heat wave, they start randomly)
It says so right above

@Sicco0803 do you have weather commands enabled so admins can start/stop electrical storms etc? If so what are they? TY

I gave the falsest of information on the beaver dams.
71.64 50.30
I was looking at the wrong part of the map
MrPanda554 Jan 17 @ 2:27pm 
Anyone have an idea on the location of beaver dams?
