Any thoughts as to setting up the assets as an open source project on github? Assuming WC has no legal rights to the assets ... I'd be happy to help you get that set up and manage it as well.

I guess I am late to the party, but I like your map. Good luck on the project you are working on.

Thanks very much for your time on this map Alchemist, I'm looking forward to trying it out.

The Alchemist: that would be generous and kind

how do u play this map
Zachno Dec 21, 2017 @ 10:43am 
90k divided by 1800 equals 50 men per ship. ALL 1800 ships discovered the island all at once? In 1812 no less. I really hope this map has 1800 shipwrecks, or at least a shit tonne of ship pieces being used to structure this tunnel system. 10k people per bunker... those have to be some fairly gigantic bunkers bro. Also why does the island have ARK tek then? Map sounds amazing though. Sorry to hear about your beef with WILDCARD. They seem like their priorities are completely out of whack. Sooner or later they leave a bad taste in everyone's mouth!

I'm interested in this map. Does it really have a place with hidden treasures in it? I'm not in it to build a lot and stay permanently, but have a small team of people who would be interested in the expedition aspect of it to find these "treasures".. thanks!

I'm gonna miss you guys but I am working on my own title now. so maybe i'll see you again. :)

who knows man, maybe I will come back to this. someone at Wildcard left a really bad taste in my mouth so i'm kinda over them at the moment.

Bigfoot Dec 16, 2017 @ 6:01pm 
This has always been one of my favorite maps. Our group loved playing on it. Thank you for all the time you spent making it.

Sad to see you go :( This and Nazca are very favorite maps of mine. Good luck with whatever that project is :)

UPDATE IS LIVE...enjoy.
TheAlchemist  [author] Dec 16, 2017 @ 1:56pm 
Tigg3r00 im debating uploading the maps files and assets to a server and letting whoever wants to continue it to have at it.

Tigg3r00 Dec 16, 2017 @ 12:48pm 
Because of where it consistently happened I almost suspect there is a mystery to the sudden deaths and loss of gear; I went looking for the same spot to bring my dino home and though I didn't think I had put my stuff on the dino before going in all my stuff including armor was on that dino when I finally (had no flyers at the time) found the place again. It felt like I had become a ghost in the story.
Tigg3r00 Dec 16, 2017 @ 12:43pm 
I love this map; if you eventually do decide you don't want to work on it again is there any hope that others could keep it at least in working order? So many mysteries I barely began to see.

THE LAST UPDATE FOR THIEVES ISLAND WILL GO LIVE THIS WEEKEND

I am not working on ARK maps anymore for the forseable future for a host of reasons. No need to air dirty laundry here, lets just say support wasn't enough to allow me to continue.

Enjoy it....glad you all liked it. It was the the very first map I ever made in Unreal and my very first mod ever. I literally learned on the job.

still learning too...but this time its for my own thing. Hopefully you all will see it here on Steam for sale soon...cause that's the idea.

Thank you everyone for your support.

Ive tryed other mod maps, and this was the only one that seems a bit fun compared to the rest. Its a great map, if you start on island with the big water fall you can build your stuff there, plenty of resoures, pets, mounts there for you and once you make your boat, travel up the north way east, and there to the side is a fire wyvern, shoot him down with some poison arrows, and take her milk and eggs. Go back home and make some fires atleast 20, put alot of wood or spark in there and throw the wyvern egg on top, there is about 3 eggs that wyvern leaves there, so you can have 3 fire wyverns to start off with... Im still in the process of babying one, where you have to feed it the milk the mother leaves in her inventory, and you have to stay around the babies to feed, and nuture them for a few. Good map! :)

No crash log either. Just Ark quit unexpectedly, Reopen?
DireDodo Nov 28, 2017 @ 8:04pm 
I can't play on this map because after about 10 mins My Mac locks up, forcing me to close ark? And it does it on sp with only the map as well
skillzNthrillz Nov 27, 2017 @ 9:16pm 
Does this mod have squatches?

Hello

Is there a snow biome in this map? Cant seem to find it
MajikTom Nov 20, 2017 @ 8:12pm 
Great Map. I ran into a few problems getting to work on my public host, but it is great once it works. Found a couple bugs, will post in Bug Thread. I'm going to use it for my No Holds Barred PVP Map.
Crazy_Oz Nov 18, 2017 @ 11:30am 
Oh and sorry i took so long to get back to you TheAlchemist and hope you can find where i am talking about i will log into the map if you need and give you GPS coords
Crazy_Oz Nov 18, 2017 @ 11:27am 
The glitches i found are around the large pillers in that section in the centre of the map if you get to close to them you vanish or die and have to respawn with nothing, even if i use a recover corspe mod i still lost all my gear and it happened 3 times at different sections at the pillars. other than that its a great Map
Spuddy Nov 18, 2017 @ 10:23am 
Tried this map out and although it looks fricking awesome the FPS is terrible on this map! Using a 1070 and a i5600. Play the island at a solid 60fps on epic.
Gargon Nov 16, 2017 @ 2:56pm 
Firstly, i like your map and i will add it definitely in our cluster-rotation. I have find some bugs and i will take the time in the next months to put in in the "OFFICIAL BUG THREAD", to help you a bit. But why no Megalosaurus and Megalania? These whould be so great on your map. I hope they will be come. But in all, great job. :)

how do i get clay on this map ?

Tigg3r00 Nov 12, 2017 @ 7:36pm 
I started putting my stuff away before going to sleep on Thieves, not sure why I keep dying but it's mostly harmless if I don't leave stuff on me.
Spuddy Nov 12, 2017 @ 11:57am 
Just wandering does this have explorer notes and all the animals from the expansions ect?
TheAlchemist  [author] Nov 11, 2017 @ 1:26pm

TheAlchemist  [author] Nov 11, 2017 @ 1:26pm

Crazy_Oz Nov 3, 2017 @ 4:22am 
your Map would be ok if it was not for the fact its badly glitched and we keep loosing all our gear so its a thumbs down from me
Tigg3r00 Nov 1, 2017 @ 11:26pm 
I think my stuff ends up in the nearest dino when I die; that or I was skeered enough to take everything off before I went in -- boy is that spooky!
Ulyssis Oct 28, 2017 @ 5:26am 
Great updated... OK Guys i want to try/play on this MAP - so where are the Servers for it ?
TheAlchemist  [author] Oct 27, 2017 @ 7:17pm 
UPDATED.
Jax-DB Oct 26, 2017 @ 7:00am 
TheAlchemist. We trying to start up one of our servers with your mod, but failing everytime. please help us. how do we set it up? it does not want to load, even when we use "Thieves" at the comand line
twigalucie Oct 26, 2017 @ 2:32am 
Why do I die when I build a fire in the tower above thieves cove(? - 3rd spawn area). Is that supposed to happen? It seems like a glitch since I end up above the world or something, then have to respawn and no lootbag to be found....
Tigg3r00 Oct 15, 2017 @ 8:55pm 
aaaaaaa..... where does all my stuff go when i die in the tower?
mr.piggy Oct 15, 2017 @ 7:25am

CadejoNegro Oct 12, 2017 @ 5:33pm

Kugan Oct 12, 2017 @ 9:11am 
@TheAlchemist is this map compatible with Extinction Core? Your feedback is very appreciated. Thanks. Map looks awesome as well.
TheAlchemist  [author] Oct 12, 2017 @ 8:01am 
JimmyjinxPvP - the top of the map? like just in the sky? i mean the map has a ceiling...you can't fly too high or you will die.just like you do on THe Island.
Jinx Oct 11, 2017 @ 4:06pm 
i dont know if this is my game or if this is a issue other people are having but i lost a flying dino so io flew directaly above where it was to the top of the map since thats where they normaly go but when i flew up there i died instantly i thought it was a bug so i tryed again with another dino and i useed the whistle fallow to make my other dino come to me and when it flew up a little it vanished idk if it despawned or if something happened but my items and 2 dinos are missing there still a great map haveing so much fun on it :)
Jacki Oct 10, 2017 @ 7:08am 
Phoenix on this map?
TheAlchemist  [author] Sep 29, 2017 @ 3:30pm 
just_in_time - the bees won't spawn on this map for some reason, but I have another dev looking at WHY for me, hang tight they are coming.

Myst - I'll take a look this weekend. sounds like I made a rock strucutre GROUND TERRAIN and that's what's causing the instant death.

unbeKANT Sep 28, 2017 @ 1:38pm 
Where are the bees? Has anyone found them?
