Because this project will take a while before completed, I started with a new approach // From each continent a separately map/world. If you press on one of the pictures below you will auto. go to those workshoppage // each continent/map that i have created will have custom part that you will not find on this map and idem. otherwise
PS / I WILL NOT ABANDON THIS PROJECT, ppl are asking for making small worlds and big worlds so...

I really liked this map, I'm trying to open a server for this map only. But I need to know one thing, I saw a lot of scattered beaver houses and I did not see beavers. No ecnontrei gigantossaurus on this map. If it is possible to adjust the respaw points of the animals I would be very grateful, all the rest can wait, but if I adjust the respaws I already put rotated servers with this map.

@-NRU- Tjoepapke : Hi. Not sure if anyone asked you this but wondering if you have an ETA for the map ? I understand its not a priority, maybe you have a timeline ?

Okay thank you for the reply :) and yes me and my friends are having lots of fun on your map ^^

there will, i have started with a sort of desert/canyon on the south america (1/3 of the main land), saddly enough, i don't really have the time for working on the ark maps. Some day i will restart with this project, and if i have a good month for this only , i may can finish the second arena.

But in the mean time i hope you guys can enjoy the ark gameplay.

Does the map also have a desert landscape like the one from scorched earth? (i saw some maps which included that just wondering if this map does too)
Have a nice day :)

hellow, ty for the comments, the spawnpoints are from the island, so the most spawn/dino mods will work on this map, ty for asking this,

the next release will come, it all depends how fast i can finish up my other projects. This mod is a passion build and there for not the first priority on my list, (sorry for this problem) but i will keep working weekly on the mod, for sure.

indeed there is still an invisible wall on this mod the doom texture is just out of reach (placed just a bit to far)
