Olympus News and Updates March-April 2020

With the launch of update 4.5, Genesis dinos have been added to Olympus! Because they are not officially in the dev kit yet, some work arounds were used to make them spawn. Additional genesis resources as well as things like magmasaur nests are much more complicated to set up in this manner and will be added as soon as they are available in a future dev kit release.

For full list of past patches, please see the Change Notes tab.

Update 4.51 is now Live!
  • Fix for overspawn on central mountain.
  • Fix for ocean overspawn related to x variant dinos.
  • Doubled Parakeet fish spawns for better giant turtle taming,
  • Fix for instances of missing collision on central mountain.
  • Fix for landscape miss sculpt near central mountain.
  • Added magmasaur nests spawns to volcanic island! Special Thanks to Sicco, maker of the maps Amissa and the Volcano for help in figuring out the tag to enable them!
Update 4.5
  • Added Genesis dinos and variants!
  • Fix for overspawn causing performance issues near blue obelisk.
  • Overhaul of central mountain peak.
  • Made adjustments to some proxy meshes that were rendering too soon.
  • Assorted minor bugfixes.

A Little Farther Out
  • Ocean Aesthetic Pass with a focus on making undersea areas more unique and varied, as well as the addition of larger underwater tunnels with some connecting to inland bodies of water.
  • New trees, foliage, and environment assets.
  • More Ruins and Temples
  • Unique Sub Bosses
  • More Caves, Big and Small
  • Custom Boss Arenas
  • Remaining Dossiers
  • Custom Explorer notes
  • Ascension
    more to come :)

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)

Rock drake walking animation while invisible has them rolling forward over and over again. Also I couldn't get wyvern nests to spawn either. Good looking map but still needs some polish. Will definitely check this out again in the future. Very nice! ^_^

@snowfeather...... All eggs spoil over time, if you look it will say how long to spoil, if its spoiled it will let you pick up but disappear because of spoiled. Remember to look when you pick up the eggs. Hope this helps.

rockdrake an deionychus eggs disappear from inventory, even the moment when you pick them up. Not every time, but very often.

@Dirty Dark Devil

Geh mal auf die Discord Seite, da kann man dir bestimmt weiter helfen (ich empfehle auf englisch zu fragen).

Kannst natürlich auch Google fragen wie man eine Mod Karte auf einen Nitrado Server bekommt.

At approximately 95 / 10 there seems to be an overspawn issue of alpha meglodons since the recent update (at least a dozen in a very small patch of ocean). Just an fyi.

but in the update of the 31.03 they say, the nets are in.
