    Explore new heights and hidden depths in this expansive 150 sq. kilometer map where Survivors will encounter new biomes, challenges, and mysterious ruins! Whether it's exploring the valley of waterfalls, setting up your treehouse home in the Redwood Forests, getting down and dirty in the vast swamps, diving deep underwater, climbing snowy mountains, or caving, there's something for every Survivor out there! Arriving with the map will be 3 brand new real-world creatures, including the Amargasaurus and one chosen explicitly by the ARK community! 

    Lost Island and its creatures will be a free DLC coming to Steam, Epic, Xbox, PlayStation later this year!

    Of all the creatures in the sauropod family, Amargasaurus titanicus is likely the most unique looking. It sports two parallel rows of dorsal spines down the length of its neck, back, and tail--though the neck spines are significantly longer than the back or tail spines.  These spines are a remarkable adaptation, giving Amargasaurus unmatched control of its body temperature. Made even more incredible by their time on ARKs, these spines store both extreme heat AND extreme cold, effectively allowing Amargasaurus to live comfortably in any environment. Its sails also make it an abnormally capable swimmer, for a sauropod.

    Unlike most sauropods, Amargasaurus is very prone to violence, attacking most predators (and humans!) on sight. I suspect this behavior developed alongside the dangerous spines it uses as weapons.

    Once finally tamed, it's no surprise that Amargasaurus' spines are its best feature. If removed early, their thermal storage becomes erratic, which is perfect for catalyzing sap development in many trees.

    Some tribes, of course, adapted this thermal quirk for combat. By having Amargasaurus eject a spine before it sheds naturally, the freezing/warming waves that emanate from the spike play havoc with armor in the area. Interestingly, simple armor is barely affected, while more complex armor is more heavily affected.

    I would love to see any one of the creatures from the ark additions mod. I’ve been using the mod and love it and I know I would also want the creatures on console to play with

    Fasolasuchus Tenax- the biggest archosaur, nearly as long as a T. Rex!

    Running- Bipedal

    Walking- Quadrupedal

    Territory- Amphibious

    Armored spine- has a row of osteoderms running down its spine

    While running its primary attack could be a stunning chomp, secondary could be a tail swipe.

    I think it would be cool if this had two saddle types, a smithy one that let it operate as usual, and a fabricated one.

    The fabricated saddle would have tank style turrets on either side that would consume rockets and be operated by individual players while a driver would sit on the top. While equipped with this saddle, the Fasolasuchus would be stuck in quadrupedal mode and would lose the stunning chomp capability but would receive increased armor.

    As TES series fan I can confirm the map is stolen from Elder Scrolls universe.

    Alright, this map has my attention. I liked it. Loved the Armagasaurus and I am curious as to what the other 2 will be. 

    I am excited to say the least.

    Great was if first they can solve the issues on Gen2 servers. My servers do 15 min roll backs every hour. Its getting ridiculous.

    I try to give you various ideas for the new dino (I'm very excited !!), if you want to make a carnivorous dinosaur you could do the Siamraptor, because it would add a new dinosaur the size of a Carno-raptor. but I would be happy to see some new extinct mammals, perhaps glacial. it should also be mentioned that it would be interesting to have another large dinosaur that rules rivers and lakes, such as the already famous deinonichus or others. I hope it has been a little useful to you!

    Hi, I am Evan age 13.  I drew this acrocanthosaurus design for the competition.  The acro should be about as big as the rex.  It is tameable by stealing it's eggs from nests in the swamp and desert.  The acro is highly agressive towards players.  I would like it to have a sleep option like the shadowmain.  It can do extra damage to sauropods like the bronto and diplo as well as a roar that can scare the new amargasaurus.  If this is to much that is ok.    And by the request of my friend anthony make it run fast.   https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CyQ0QNuy7hn4YG4mOwTx9AGo7hR3tid2ekTCdwLMudM/edit

    Rhizodus

    The arapaima's bigger and scarier prehistoric brother. fresh water dweller.

    Gnashing bite as primary. sense arapaima are known to leap out of the water and batter things with their armored head, perhaps this can leap out of the water performing stunning strikes on creatures near the water edge? If the target is under a certain size it can lungfish-style scoot back into the water, dragging its prey with it? This would give it limited dry-land survival like the stingray.

    Id love to see Ceratosaurus, somewhere between the size of a carno and magalosaurus a little slower then the carno. Since its jaws were better for meat slicing and not great for bone maybe make it really good at gathering meat maybe even gather raw meat from living prey unless you turn of gather and a charge up bite attack that can cause bleed equal to the giganotosaurus for 3 - 5 sec charge up takes 5 seconds, timer starts from scratch if interrupted. Lives in dense forest and red wood type habitats its slightly narrow body making it adept at running between dense trees. taming knock out with tranqs loses torpor about as fast as a spino tames with prime meat or  Extraordinary kibble regular raw meat has no effect (will eat any meat from troth after taming). saddle 1 person cannot use weapons while riding  

    1024px-Ceratosaurus_mount_utah_museum_1.jpg

    I like this idea, but since Ceratosaurus had such long teeth I think it should have the Ravagers GNASHED effect. I feel like too many carnivores have a bleed, & this could be a cool alternative.

    LETS GO HIPPO!

    Archaeopotamus means "the ancient of the river". Of all identified hippos, only Kenyapotamus is older. Kenyapotamus, however, is only known from partial fossils; Archaeopotamus is the oldest well-identified hippo.[1]

    Hey WildCard I’m not sure if you will see this so please upvote this post but I would like for the missions on Gen1 to give the same amount of points as they used to because ever since gen2 came out the point amount given for any mission has now been reduced from 1.0 to 0.1 and that means that we are getting 10x less points than before so a mission giving 1000 points now only gives 100

    thank you for reading

    Please WC, make this final map where all the real dinos could be found on a single map!

    My new dino suggestion would be australopithecus. A smart animal that travels in small tribes and can use primitive weapons, this creature can make strategic attacks against human players and capable of giving single player survivors a small taste of pvp warfare.
