@leah.dreaming - Griffins do already spawn... they are in a small redwood grove, next to the swamp. You'll find them for sure... Only one spot, but they are there...
leah.dreaming Aug 7 @ 3:26pm 
can you add griffens in a new update. i was thinking of griffens flying over the volcano and the wyvern and rock drake areas.
leah.dreaming Aug 7 @ 3:22pm 
Black and blue thank you for the information. i hope to now be able to get my rock drake eggs hatched.

Black and blue good job with this map :steamhappy:
Black and Blue  [author] Jul 28 @ 1:31am 
@Sergio_Kill - They are active now but very hard to find. The next update will make them a lot easier to spawn. I will be adding more Wyvern nests as well. Update should be released this weekend I hope :steamhappy:
Sergio_Kill Jul 27 @ 8:25am 
anthe Rock Drake eggs are now or in the next update¿?
And thanks for your answer you help so much
Black and Blue  [author] Jul 24 @ 10:38pm 
@Sergio_Kill - As beeko2012 said :) In the water near Blue OB. I will be updating very shortly with more oil and pearls (cheers beeko2012)
@titan258 - Rock Drake eggs will be available shortly in nests (big changes) not far from the Volcano, also adding more Wyvern eggs in next update :)
titan258 Jul 24 @ 3:50pm 
Where the rock dragon eggs are located ?
beeko2012 Jul 24 @ 2:01pm 
@Sergio_Kill - In the water near Blue OB (there is also some oil in the water there too)...
Sergio_Kill Jul 24 @ 12:13pm 
One questions in this map has pearl¿? Becouse i dont see
Black and Blue  [author] Jul 18 @ 10:00pm 
@johnim - Yes 2x
johnim Jul 18 @ 9:01am 
hi is the gather rates alterd on here as it takes ages to hit trees and rocks even changed my settings
Splutty Jul 17 @ 4:04am 
Why put that in the map, though, and not just in the server settings? :)
Black and Blue  [author] Jul 16 @ 8:13pm 
@Splutty - Sorry about the Server Levels, I had been asked to make it high for my Server Cluster. Then I was told that it's too high, so changed it slightly, then was asked to make it higher (because of the challenge) So I have decided that I will make the Max Level set at 300, if anyone wants to make their Server or SP levels higher, then it can be adjusted in their own settings or a Level Mod. I hope that will suit everyone from now on. The next update will have the Level changes so please wait toll after the update to do your own adjustments. Thanks
Splutty Jul 16 @ 10:37am 
The map seems to have a default difficulty setting of 6.0 :) This kind of messed up my default config for my cluster, but I think I have it fixed now.

There's no option somewhere I missed to set it in the map, is there?
Prince Dogão do Ark Jul 10 @ 8:18am 
@Black and Blue - Thanks! You helped me a lot!
Black and Blue  [author] Jul 9 @ 11:10pm 
@Prince Otakuzin - Currently in the water around the Blue OB, let me know if you have trouble. There will be more available all over the map shortly
Prince Dogão do Ark Jul 9 @ 9:10pm 
Where can we find oil on the map? In the depths of the water?
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 30 @ 9:46pm 
@jcorb77 - OK Thanks :) I will ask in the discord about it, I might get an answer there, thanks again
jcorb77 Jun 29 @ 9:30am 
The Cnidaria out of water happens on a bunch of Maps. Not sure what is causing it. It might be another mod that's causing it.
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 26 @ 4:45am 
@beeko2012 - No problem, I am always keen to get user idea's etc, thanks.
I have made a long list :), taking all the points you made and will implement them asap.
Not sure why Cnidaria are spawning weird as they are attached to the ocean spawn and are set to only spawn in water, the spawn volumes are all below the ocean plane aswell, so I will continue to look into it. Also will sort out Yuti's asap, I will check to see if they are in the new Dev Kit update.Thanks again for your feedback (not "doucheback") :steamhappy: It all goes toward making a better map :)
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 26 @ 4:33am 
@Odin - No, this map has always been Rex Island, for your Map Name or Map Mod Path, try using /Game/Mods/1160006324/RexIsland
See if that helps

Dino's -

Cnidaria - For some reason they are spawning in mid-air. Particularly in the waters south of
the henge and north of the abberation biome. (but the abberation cnidaria which spawn in that pond, spawn as normal. So it's just some of the vanilla versions which are behaving weird...

Yuti's - They don't spawn on my single player map. Is that intentional?...


-- I think thats enough from me (there is a fine line between feedback and being a douche and I really don't won't to give that impression at all) --

So. Thanks again for the map and the new updates, keep on keeping on and I look forward to the next installment...

Scorched North / Scorched biome) - The whole area needs a huge amount of sand stone rocks dumped all over it. In the old part there was only a handful of small rocks and in the new section there are even less...

As it stands, if you wanted to build in adobe, your kinda screwed, which really should't be the case. I would go to town with all the heavy resources in that biome and really flesh it out... Also, silk. I know you can harvest lymantria, but some silk flower fields would be nice too...

The beaver pond is nice, but you could easily double/triple the rocks and trees around it, making it feel even more secluded... (not quite blue bay tree dense, but close)

The new beach to the east of henge, only has stones that are harvestable by hand. The whole beach could do with a bunch of those smooth river rocks, along with some larger rocks feathered into the plains within the thin treeline... Which if it was me, would be mirrored on the tip of the scorched beach head opposite...

@Black and Blue - Hi...

New update feedback time.

(I would have given it sooner after the update, but I was off map for a while, as i had to go get the new explorer notes)

First things first - Waterfalls north of The Bite- Can confirm, they now render properly in sp!... :)

Next.

New Areas - Stonehenge / Scorched North

(obviously, anything i say, take with a pinch of salt, it's your map, you do as you please.)

Stonehenge - The plains around it are perfect for a huge base, but when you get on the ground and start to think about logistics and look for resources, it seems a bit light (especially in comparison to older parts of the map)... Wood is fine, but stone would soon become a huge bottleneck. Some dense boulder areas southwest of the henge and more heavy resources clustered in and around the area would be a builder friendly improvement...

Did this map start out with different name? GTX server hosting does not list this map as an option to install.
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 18 @ 4:20am 
Update V5.0.0 has been released
Fix for Artifacts etc, too many other updates and fixes to list here
New Foliage and larger area for SE Zone
New Mountain and Grassland Zone with new Waterfalls and Terrain updated between Stonehenge, Signal Mountain and Redwood Forest
Heaps more for you to find
Unfortunately the fix for the Large Waterfalls did not work (it works in the editor) The Textures are still not present. This will be sorted ASAP
Please let me know if you find any issues that need attention. Thanks
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 16 @ 1:48am 
@Helvy - Thanks :) Flint from the small stone clusters only, Flint shouln't be available from large rocks :)
Helvy Jun 16 @ 1:03am 
I cant mine flint from the rocks either
Helvy Jun 15 @ 7:40pm 
Looks great, cant wait to give it a go
Rory Jun 15 @ 10:05am 
@black and Blue thanks! we will wait a bit before trying it but are eager to give it a try. great work!
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 14 @ 7:38pm 
@Rory - There is a big update coming this weekend. It may be worth waiting until then. Keep an eye out for my Post advising the update is available. In answer to your questions, yes it complete enough to start a server and there are plenty of great places for building. I am going to work on the Ocean next, unless people would like other Land area's first. If you wish to have a look between now and the weekend, try it now and give me some feedback if you like. Cheers
Rory Jun 14 @ 9:09am 
and how are the building spots?

Rory Jun 14 @ 9:09am 
im looking for maps for a small pve server with my friends as we want a break from pvp, is this map complete enough to have an entire playthrough on it?
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 7 @ 10:36pm 
@Nikopol - Thank you for your comments :) Next major update coming very very soon. Cheers
Black and Blue  [author] Jun 7 @ 10:35pm 
@Alex101 - Flint is only available from small rock clusters. Dino levels will be adjusted next update (very soon) Red OB inside Volcano has not been activated or updated just yet. I will be sorting that out soon. So you thought you would just jump in and try? :) Cheers
Nikopol Jun 6 @ 11:25pm 
@Black and Blue, its looking really cool so far. I love the way you did the wyvern trench. Your land sculpting is very unique and creative yet still very realistic looking. Looking forward to watching it grow.
Alex101 Jun 6 @ 9:14am 
Ohh and one more thing is that the red obby lava was just was just water and there was no transmitter or platform so I just fell in
Alex101 Jun 6 @ 9:13am 
I couldnt get any flint from anything - plus all the dino levels seemed way too high ??
