    - Fixes for collision in new cave and adds new plant life. Also added crystal deposits around southeastern spawn region.

  • Unique Sub Bosses
  • More Caves, Big and Small
  • Custom Boss Arenas
  • Remaining Dossiers

    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)

It is very appreciated that some have taken some time to diagnose their systems or have friends that have found steps to correct textures not loading on personal pcs.

Your time and info are valuable for others

Textures arent loading
When you click play on Ark in your Library, try selecting "reset active total conversion."

A guy had this exact same issue the other day and that fixed it. Good luck! :)

I just wanted to quickly update with another thank you! I went and played through Fjordur and came back, and coming home felt so good. All my dinos from throughout every DLC come back to Olympus with me, and I have a huge set of aviaries/stables built up for them to live in on that peninsula just under the Centurion's mountain. My base is on platforms built along the metal spike at the end of the peninsula, and I have all my modded furniture etc on those. It's still a WIP but if images show: and ...I have one heck of a view! <3 Thank you again.

Can even take the vanilla BP path and put it in the spawner. SS will spawn from vanilla path, and it would be entered just like a custom or modded dino. No need for ini if you don't want

Desmodus is a brand new creature currently (to the best of my knowledge) exclusive to Fjordur. When the DevKit updates it could be added, but do not bet on that.

You can try using the Simple Spawners mod to add any creature to this map, though be warned that it also may not be updated and therefore may not let you spawn those creatures. That being said, if you can find the blueprint path of the Desmodus, then you can manually add it to any map given you know the name of a spawn zone and are able to edit the Game.ini config file.

desmodus appear on this map ?

As has been said multiple times on this first page of comments, this is not a map exclusive issue. It's something that happens when textures don't load. This is a big map, it takes time for all the textures to load and depending on your machine they may not fully load every time. This is a vanilla issue.
