Hi, I keep having issues with the textures not loading on this map, I have tried it with Extinction and Annunaki but I'm having the same issue with them both. I have deleted the mod and resubscribed a couple of times but have had little success as it works sometimes but most of the time it doesn't.

@MissKitty check the floating island ponds(In the finished area) they are all over in there! also check the tundra ponds (Pine trees and such leading into the snow) I've spotted them there as well :)

I've been looking for a while now, and I can't seem to find Hesperornis (the weird duck). Do they spawn on the map? I really just want one of those cuties.

Hi! I started about a week or so ago in the White Shoals region. I understand that's the relatively safe / beginner's region for this map. Is there some list available that shows the other zones and their "levels of difficulty"? I think I'd like to move outward / start looking for a more permanent home, but I don't want to bite off "more than I can chew" (or, more accurately, "more than the kapros can chew"). Thanks!

@BioticShadow the sound bug came along with an ark update. I can't even hope to fix it until they update the dev kit and they have not updated it since before 257. The sounds reported as bugged are core ark sounds so I'm not even sure what exactly happened when they updated.

Is there a place where the Wyverns are? Or are they not in this map?
