    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.

    domesticated.png
    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.

    the map is similar in silhouette, but nothing more, since I have already done the rest of the landscape with my hands. I think this should not be a problem, even the silhouette is not 100% similar, it will also be done approximately.

    Also, is never good saying bad stuff on other people. The person that worked on that map answered to this accusations. 

    Personaly I don't see that stating an admitted fact is realy talking bad.

    The logic step is to stop "thinking" and just get in contact with Bethesda to assure it is not a problem. Just to avoid any trouble.

    so to any studio wildcard employees the thread for the dino voting is not open to me and I don't understand why because it says its open till July 23rd (also ark is my very favorite game and I have awesome suggestions for the game)

    if you really want to know what my best suggestion: the glaucus atlanticus but bigger so you can ride it and its a water creature and while yes I know its not really a dinosaur it looks like one and its really cool Blue Glaucus

    Community Crunch 271:

    Thanks to Ark’s passionate community and a love for new content that fits its mold, what were once straightforward plans have become so much more. Through in-game events, free DLC maps, and continued game updates, we’re also polishing, addressing player feedback and fixing issues to make it a better game for everyone.

    They wrote maps here, so I think there will be another one after Lost Island.

    I thought so but, the wiki page says that it will be the last & final one so I figured I would ask incase it got changed.

    So, like, if you were just going to let streamers/youtubers make all the submissions and abuse their viewerbase to get all the votes for the top 10 submissions, why wouldn't you just hand the dinosaur voting process to them in the first place instead of giving us hope for a fair community vote with a post like this? 🤷‍♀️

    I'd love to see Pliosaurus funkei aka Predator X. It's the larges Mosasuar ever discovered, so i thought it could act as the Giga of the ocean, being absolty massive, really strong, really rare, and stupidly difficult to tame. I know the Mosa is said to be the giga of the sea, but, lets face it, it is much closer to the power level of a rex. https://scitechdaily.com/predator-x-officially-named-pliosaurus-funkei/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pliosaurus#Pliosaurus_funkeipliosaurus-funkei

     

    I am sorry but did you just fricking call Pliosaurus funkei a Mosasaur?

    Pliosaurs like Liopleurodon and Pliosaurus funkei are short necked plesiosaurs. Yes, Pliosaurus funkei is related to that long necked plesiosaur that it is biting the neck of.

    Hey GP, been awhile.  Anyways yes.  I been gone since like a month after Vals release until the start of this event.  Im on SP so i dnt receive event rates normally.  Ive always put event rates of 2x xp and harvest.  Thing is when i played before i wouldnt be level 60 b4 i was done building a wooden house and making 1 saddle.  I created a topic on this last night called broken xp gains.  I put more detail and explained more on there if youd be kind enough to help me out.  And thanks in advance GP

    Hi, I will tell you about the reptile that I would like to see on the new map (Lost Island). This reptile is called the Longisquama or the extraordinary longisquama (Lat. Longisquama insignis). It will be a shoulder animal. The size of a “Bulbdog” or “Shinehorn”.:raptor:

    It seems to me that this reptile fits perfectly into the atmosphere of "Lost Island". Because as you may have noticed from the photos on the reptile's back there are club-shaped dorsal plates 10-30 centimeters long (longer than the entire body!). This is the main ability of Longisquam. Having a reptile on your shoulder, you can launch it like a boomerang and it will come back to you! If you hit an enemy, he will be dealt damage:Melee_Damage: and a torpor:Torpor: at which he will fall asleep very quickly. The strength of such a poison boomerang will be equal to the usual "tranquilizer dart" from the Ark and depends on the level of the Longisquam. And if there is a question of how it can be launched, it is because it can soar approximately like "Maving".

    How will the ability work? First you need to take it on your shoulder and press F once and then the sight will appear. Then press F again and you will throw it where you are aiming.

    Nutrition and domestication. Longisquam will eat vegetation, that is, berries, and so on. And since this reptile will poison, it will be tamed with a "Narcotics". And will be tamed passively.

    Link from wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longisquama

    It seems that I have told everything, so I hope that the developers of the StudioWildcard Arch will notice my idea and add it to the game.:Jerblove:

    It will be easier for me to explain this in Russian and if you have people who could explain my idea more correctly:

     

    Привет, я расскажу о рептилии которую хотел бы увидеть на новой карте. Эту рептилию называют лонгисквама или длинночешуйник необыкновенный (лат. Longisquama insignis). Это будет наплечное животное. Размером как “лампадок” или “светорог”.

     Мне кажется что это рептилия идеально вписывается в атмосферу “Lost Island”. Потому что как вы могли заметить по фотографиям на спине рептилии есть спинные пластины клюшкообразной формы в 10-30 сантиметров длиной (длиннее всего тела!). Это и есть главная способность лонгисквама. Имея рептилию на плече ты можешь запустить его как бумеранг и он сам вернётся к тебе! При попадании в противника ему будет нанесён урон и торпор при котором он будет очень быстро засыпать. Сила такого отравляющего бумеранга будет равна обычному “транквилизирующему дротику” из Арк и зависит от уровня Лонгисквама. И если есть вопрос как его можно запускать, это потому что, он умеет парить примерно как “мейвинг”.

     Как будет работать способность? Для начала тебе нужно взять его на плечо и нажать F один раз и тогда появится прицел. Затем нажми F ещё раз и ты кинешь его куда нацелился.

    Питание и приручение. Питаться лонгисквама будет растительностью то есть ягоды и так далее. И так как это рептилия будет отравлять приручаться будет наркотиком. И приручаться будет пассивно.

    Ссылка из википедии: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longisquama

    Вроде я всё рассказал, так что надеюсь что разработчики Арка StudioWildcard заметят мою идею и добавят в игру.
