Welcome to Olympus, once home to the mighty gods of old. It has been many years since they ruled over this world, and time has not been kind. Explore the wilds of this once great civilization, discover its secrets, and see if you have what it takes to ascend and stand as equals with those who came before!

Olympus is designed to be a more scifi feeling ARK. Due to years of neglect, several areas of once hidden advanced technology are visible and some has even taken on a life of its own. I wanted to try and create a blend of nature and machine to make a unique and different experience.

The map is roughly 1.4 times the size of the island and the landscape itself was completely hand sculpted. Olympus uses a combination of vanilla and custom spawns, so most dino mods will be compatible. I look forward to working together with the community to make this the best map it can be :) All feedback on possible issues and suggestions are appreciated.

  • Surface - 94%
  • Underwater - 75%
  • Underground - 65%
  • Endgame custom boss arenas will be added after their necessary artifact caves. Island boss arenas are a temporary place holder.
  • Overall - ~85% (Of what I'd like to add, currently 100% playable)

e_r_rock May 9 @ 9:13am : No, it's not abandoned. It's been getting updates a couple of times/year but it's mostly done. I've played it extensively and other than a couple of clipping problems I've found no issues or anything lacking. This map has a LOT to offer. It's one of my favorites.

Appreciate the response @chief, I am dumb. I just need to restart my game >_>
Chief May 4 @ 2:34pm 
Several have reported that, but I do not have the issue myself.

So not sure what it could be

Maybe join discord and ask the folks there

Hiya! Not sure if this is the place to post, but we are testing this map for possibly a new server on our cluster. Only issue I am noticing is that the textures either take forever to load or never load? I'm early in the testing stages so its hard to say, could just be a weird bug that will resolve itself but just thought I'd post in case someone else has had a similar experience.
