Olympus News and Update Schedule, November 2018

First off, thanks everyone for your support in the mod contest! :) Finished in the top 20 against a lot of great mods, not bad at all for a first contest outing :)

This month Olympus will be receiving several additions. The first half of the month will bring 15 more dino dossiers and a heavy focus on ocean beautification as the aesthetic pass continues. In the later half the artifact of the immune will be getting a brand new dungeon to call home and I will be releasing an official resource map for Olympus which will be updated to include Extinction resources in a few months when they are added :)

I am also very excited to announce that Olympus is now a part of the Nitrado Mod Program!

The Beginning of a New Project!

It has been my intention since it's creation for Olympus to be the first chapter in it's own Ark story and as such I am excited to announce the start of a new dark fantasy map called Kadath! Throughout development I'll be posting screenshots and updates on twitter, be sure to check in and see the construction from the ground up! :) Due to preparation for the mod contest and Olympus's sponsorship application progress will be slow in the beginning, but you can expect the first sneak peaks in November!

To stay up to date on what's going on with Olympus, be sure to swing by to visit the official discord!



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.

With update 3.7 a new discord is live where players can discuss, share ideas, screenshots, stories, and come together as a community. Come check it out and get involved here! :)

Completion:
  • Surface - 93%
  • Underwater - 73%
  • Underground - 50%
  • Endgame custom boss arenas will be added after their necessary artifact caves. Island boss arenas are a temporary place holder.
  • Overall - ~77%

@storm_strike and @TcB_No Name, Several other posts seem to confirm that the invisible egg problem is a base game issue at the moment and is happening even on official maps as well. It's nice that players can at least use the whip as a workaround until Studio Wildcard is able to release a fix.

@🔥 calismarie🔥, Thanks! Still a while to go before Kadath is ready for release, but would definitely be cool to have them in a cluster :)

Amazing Map and have enjoyed it from the beginning ..to watch it grow and make the top 20 was awesome..great job and cannot wait until the new new Map is out ..as would love to have one Map maker in a Cluster ..of servers ...!!!(just a thought)

@roguewolf91 : Not sure this a problem from the map, there is another post on Wyvern Nest Plus post "If you have an issue with nests not spawning (visually) the eggs then hit the center of the nest with a whip. Seems the eggs are semi glitched to the point where you can't see them or force pickup with "E" but you can collect them with a whip (if they had indeed spawned as per normal mechanic).
Note, this affects both vanilla and modded wyverns, rock drakes etc and seems to be a bug introduced with extinction."

cant wait for extinction content :D :microraptor:
btw AMAZING MAP :)

gotcha!

Hey there i‘ve been searching the last couple days for eggs at the spawn locations(vulcanic island) and there where only empty nests and annoying wyverns
storm_strike Nov 10 @ 9:15am 
Hey ! Thanks for your reply and yeah no one egg on either location. It's the same for rock drake btw :(

@Eferhilda, They spawn on the volcanic island and on the ocean cliffs to the west.

@storm_strike, Glad you're enjoying Olympus! Can look into those egg-less nests, are they not spawning in either location (volcano island or ocean cliffs)?

@JustaRandomGuy, Yep, will start adding the Extinction content to the map as soon as it is available in the dev kit :)
JustaRandomGuy Nov 9 @ 5:30am 
the extinction extension is out are you planning on updating it cus even tho i never played this map before i saw it in youtube and it seems a cool place to do a solo survival
storm_strike Nov 8 @ 5:25pm 
Hello, first thanks for the amazing map, really love it ! Since the last update the wyvern nests are spawn but no eggs on them, am I the only one with this issue ?
