@Silver and others - Looks like the Dev Kit screwed some setting on the World settings. I will have it sorted next cook. Hopefully the next update will be by the end of next week. Big changes and fixes coming soon :)
Black and Blue  [author] May 17 @ 4:55pm 
@Silver - I will take look and see if I can work out the issue. Cheers
Silver May 17 @ 4:32pm

This has been a great map to play on so far, I wiped my games while troubleshooting but will be back to see what's new after I check out some other maps/mods/eetc

@Lille Fed RulleStan - Thanks heaps :)

@Silver - See below notes to @kyle30845 about Oil. As far as Difficulty Level's, the Map Spawn Level's are set to 6.0. It's not only Difficulty Mod's that change the Level's, It is also in your General Settings when you start an Ark. Look for the slider for Difficulty Level. Ark usually set's this as 0.2 by default. If you set this slider to 1.0, you will have Max Level 180 Creatures. In your case you may have set it to around 3.5, that would give you Max Level 630 Creatures.
The above info is for normal Creatures, the only difference to that are the Cave Spawn's. Ark's always have them spawn at higher levels by default. I am unsure exactly how high the cave spawns go, I have seen them go as far as 450 when I set my Ark to Difficulty 1.0. But you should not see any Creature's outside of a Cave higher than 180. Hope that helps, Cheers

Lille Fed RulleSten May 13 @ 11:48am 
Best map i've seen in a very long time would highly recommend
kyle30845 May 13 @ 10:00am 
Ok thanks, it is an amazing map, I was just having a hard time finding oil. Keep up the good work.
Black and Blue  [author] May 13 @ 2:59am 
@kyle30845 - Oil Rock's can be found in the water at Blue Bay. Also there are a few Oil Vein's scattered around near the Blue OB (Southwest), AB Spawns (South Central) and a few near SE Spawns (Southeast). There are a few more around the Map. I will be placing more Oil Rock's in the water and Oil Vein's on land in the next cook. BTW Update will be out toward's the end of next week. Cheers

OK to make this simple.....
The Difficulty Offset is a floating point number with a value between 0.01 and 1.0, with a higher number representing a higher Difficulty Value.
To calculate the Maximum Creature Level for a given Difficulty Value, simply multiply by 30.
The Difficulty Value of the Creature's set in the Rex Island Spawn's VIA the Dev Kit is 6.0.
Maximum Creature Level scales linearly with the Difficulty Value, and a Difficulty Value of 6.0 results in a Maximum Creature Level of 180 (6 x 30)
@grafikjoe - Your game set's the Difficulty at 8. So you end up calculating 6 x 30 x 8 which ends up a Max Creature Level of 1440. If you set your Difficulty to 1.0, you will have the 180 Max Level
Hope that clears things up :)
kyle30845 May 12 @ 7:09pm 
Great map. anyone know where to find oil besides trilobites and dung beetles?
grafikjoe May 12 @ 11:19am 
I thought the dino-levels was map-based. I had no mod to push the dino-levels and i have lvl 1440 lvl dinos. my difficult-level is 8.0. thats all.
Lille Fed RulleSten May 12 @ 1:07am 
Thank you :)
Black and Blue  [author] May 11 @ 8:43pm 
@Lille Fed RulleSten - Dino's are capped at 180. Must be a Mod you have. Cheers
Lille Fed RulleSten May 11 @ 2:54pm 
Why is there level 1000+ dinos is it the map or some other mod I have on?
Black and Blue  [author] May 8 @ 5:43pm 
@grafikjoe - Thanks :) I will keep going :)
grafikjoe May 5 @ 8:16am 
Its a classy f**king good map! Please keep going...

@BlackandBlue - I gave you bad info, sorry... The cave is SW 63.1 - 22.9 (i've taken some screen shots for you - last two in my collection) - Now it doesn't happen every time, but if your flying close to the ground from either end, it will spit you out above the cave roof... I was on a ptera and i do have allow cave flying on, if that effects anything idk...
Black and Blue  [author] May 4 @ 6:53am 
@beeko2012 - Trying to find the roof issue in the cave near redwoods... Can you give me a little more info so I can find it. Cheers
Black and Blue  [author] May 3 @ 8:15am 
@beeko2012 - Yeah i'm aware, they do in the Dev Kit but not in game, hoping to sort that out next cook aswell. Cheers :)
beeko2012 May 3 @ 8:05am 
@BlackandBlue - One more thing i forget to mention (but i'm sure your aware of it), the two large waterfalls, NE. The falls don't render, but the water top and bottom does...

Black and Blue  [author] May 3 @ 6:03am 
@beeko2012 - Thanks for the info :)
The Beacon in the water is Purple, its only a place holder and will not stay.
Cave roof will be fixed next cook. :)
Thanks again :)

What is the name of the MAP?

For Example Scorched Earth is ScorchedEarth_P

Hi... Thanks for the info... ( I've been using the DERP station mod to collect wyvern eggs. They seem to be spawning ok - i'm playing single player ) ... I spawned middle west. My base is on the rise opposite the skeleton. I didn't move far from the beach... I've since set up bases, in the redwoods by the waterfalls. A small hut over by the cactus and a beach shack way up north... So far all is going well... Only one beacon is out of place i've found (blue oby - in water) - The cave/ tunnel by the redwoods, you can fly out of the roof... Other than that, not found anything else to report really... So far so good. Keep it up... :steamhappy:
Black and Blue  [author] Apr 30 @ 3:58am 
@beeko2012 - Thanks for your comments 😆Drake and Wyvern eggs still not active properly as yet. Hope to have the fix next cook. Can I ask where you have built? Thanks again
beeko2012 Apr 28 @ 9:43am 
Been playing on this map for a few day's now and i'm really enjoying it so far! Nice layout, lot's of different areas makes for interesting traveling. Was taken aback by the level of the dino's at first, but certainly adds to the tension early game. Looking forward to seeing how it all progresses... One thing to ask, Drakes eggs? I've not seen any nests in the area, is the mechanic working yet?...
treefrog125 Apr 24 @ 8:37am 
Some great bloom, mist and sparkle effects in different area's. Really liking the tech area with the floating rock looking like a crown, along with the sprakling mushrooms, ala: "Alice In Wonderland". Lots of variation in the terrain, mountain passes and lakes to keep things interesting to look at whilst being balanced to play.
strelok Apr 24 @ 8:26am 
there are many suggestions :)
strelok Apr 24 @ 8:25am

@strelok - English? :) Thanks
strelok Apr 24 @ 6:14am 
Здравствуйте да сегодня зделаю только не знаю как сюда вставить
будет у меня в профиле открыт доступ !!! или писать по английски ?
Black and Blue  [author] Apr 24 @ 5:13am 
@strelok - Are you able to take a screen shot of the Water Texture issue? and maybe GPS Cord's? That would be a great help, cheers
BTW... The other issues are sorted... at least they should be :)
Black and Blue  [author] Apr 23 @ 7:08am 
@strelok - OK I am looking into the polygons of the water in the Res. Waterfalls are working in the Dev Kit but not in-game, I am looking into that as well. I will resolve all thoses issues also the Cave. Really appreciate your testing and letting me know :)
Thanks for the heads up with the errors. I will fix all in the next cook. Thanks again
strelok Apr 23 @ 7:07am 
Yes, offers can be placed in the area of the active volcano, TEK, a cave !!! in the smoke, the entrance !!!
strelok Apr 23 @ 7:02am 
Hello, in the upper right corner there is a cave if you dive to the bottom throws to the top of the mountain !!! on the island there was such a bug in one of the caves as acidic !!!
Black and Blue  [author] Apr 23 @ 6:56am 
@Sol - Thanks for trying my Map :) MudTrainOne would be fun :)
I made the Map Vertically challenging because I love using the Glider's.
Cheers
strelok Apr 22 @ 5:16am 
Hello, please check the polygons of the water there are some problems when crossing the reservoirs! Waterfalls in the upper right corner of the map do not have a texture !!!
Tigg3r00 Apr 21 @ 3:48pm 
One small thing is the map is stretched pretty hard vertically, iz gonna be enormous...
Tigg3r00 Apr 21 @ 3:46pm 
This was an awful lot of fun to fly around; I ended up building a castle and stuff so I guess I'm playing on here for a while. It'll be interesting to try and get a MudTrain1 set up on here :)

Granny The Gamer Apr 6 @ 2:46pm
