I suggest adding a cave lion. They existed around the ice age, as did a lot of other ark creatures including the sabretooth tiger, woolly rhino, woolly mammoth, etc. You could add the cave lion as an enemy in caves, along with just a creature that roams around areas such as forests and fields. Ark has not yet had an animal like this, although there is a sabretooth tiger, the cave lion does somewhat resemble a modern day lion, one of the most popular animals, so I think that adding in something like this could really bring some life into the Fjordur map. If you are looking for something with abilities, I think it would be amazing if the cave lion was able to hunt in a different way as the other animals. Maybe you could crouch down with it and have it stalk prey through the grass. You could make it so prey is less likely to see it when it is crouched down as well. I hope you consider this option, and I will try giving other suggestions as well.
wild the cave bear's size really sets it apart from its smaller cousin the dire bear it is 11.5 feet tall when standing on its hind legs and has the strength to take on a rex. mammoths and other creatures will run in for their life when they see this bear coming. Gigas get a debuff when fighting this beast they will lose extra health and will do significantly less damage to the cave bear. Its fur is so thick it provides hypothermal insulation. thylacoleos, kaprosuchus and purlovias can't knock you off your when you are riding the cave bear. Cave bears have three different variations summer variant has darker fur and lives on the warmer forests on fjordur, the winter variant has lighter fur and can be found on the freezing mountains of fjordur, then last is the rarest variant it is the albino which can only be found in sub zero tempatures and in caves. To tame one you must find a mother with her cubs and pick one up and put it on your shoulder, then run like a mad man because the mother is insanely protective, Then feed it prime meat it hates regular meat. domesticated once you have raised yourself one of these you will feel like a king. it takes reduced damage when fighting large creatures and does increased damage to smaller creatures. the cave bear can destroy metal and vaults (not one hit of course). its roar is so loud it will shatter grenades and thatch huts. these things are very protective and will throw you once you are below 30 health and will sacrifice itself for your life. abilitie 1 (L2 or LT) it can stand up on its legs and will scare away small creatures abilitie 2 (R2 or RT) bite and swipe ablitie 3 (space or A) fear roar ablitie 4 (RB or C) pick up players or small dinos Its saddle can hold two people and you have to either mount crossbows or flamethrowers (flamethrowers are for end game) the rider and passenger ride on the sides of the bear. you can also put helmets on the bear and you can attach chitin armor or ghillie armor the ghillie armor prevents wild dinos from seeing you so you can sneak around them.
A saber toothed squirrel would perfectly fit this new map. The map is covered in cold woodlands, which would be the desired home for the prehistoric squirrel. This squirrel could use its sharp teeth to grind low end materials for players. This squirrel would be small enough to ride on players shoulders. Not to mention it would be one of the cutest creatures in the game without a doubt.
No custom art yet as I have no talent for that sort of thing, but we all know what this could look like. The idea here is for a rapid, high melee, low-health mount, with a couple of unique abilities to make things fun. Note the taming method, a knockout tame would result in lower taming effectiveness than a whip tame. DOSSIER: Wild Acinonyx Agilis is another ARK inhabitant that I would date to the early Pleistocene, though it is notably larger than any species of Acinonyx discovered in the fossil record by about 20%. Immediately recognisable by any safari-goer as a cheetah, Acinonyx has a thicker coat of fur than the modern Acinonyx Jubatus, as well as more pronounced leg muscles. It is a hunter unmatched in speed aboard the ARK, able even on occasion to catch Gallimimus when not running in a straight line. They are solitary ambush predators, and will frequently wait, motionless and well camouflaged amongst the ARK's abundance of flora, for potential prey to stray too close. At this point, they rapidly accelerate to full speed and commence chase, though chases do not usually last long. If Acinonyx succeeds in impacting an opponent, its high speed will frequently cause smaller targets to stumble, slowing them for a few seconds and, in the case of humans, causing them to drop whatever they are carrying in their hands. Taming While Acinonyx can be tamed via traditional knockout methods, their high metabolism and great running speed can make this difficult, as they rapidly recover torpor and are near impossible to catch should they flee. It is more practical and effective to tame Acinonyx without the use of tranquilizers. A wild Acinonyx can be stopped in its tracks mid-charge by using a whip, at which point a would-be tamer can slowly approach and feed the creature. While it will back off at first, after a few feeds it will become a loyal companion. Beware though, as using a whip while it is not charging is certain to anger it to the point of attack. Domesticated Many tribes consider Acinonyx to be the next logical step with regard to taming after Gallimimus. Almost as fast, with a far greater ability to defend itself from attack, it is an excellent choice for the solo explorer who does not want to sacrifice power for speed. Some, however, believe its relative frailness compared to mounts of similar size, such as the Direwolves, is not made up for by its high speed and endurance, as well as only being able to carry one passenger to the Gallimimus' three. Acinonyx's speed is an invaluable asset on its own, but when domesticated they can be trained to run even faster. Assuming the creature's stamina pool is sufficient, they can, for a brief period, achieve a burst of speed up to 50% faster than their typical running speed, though this will drain their stamina extremely quickly. Doing this allows the rider to utilise the ability to stumble and disarm foes that wild Acinonyx can be observed using during hunts. As with modern cheetahs, Acinonyx maintain their ability to turn quickly at high speed by spinning their tail. Doing this with a tamed Acinonyx allows the user to make sharp right angled and even full U-turns near instantly, taking any pursuing parties by surprise and certainly putting off their aim. In real life: Acinonyx Agilis is based off the real-life Acinonyx Pardinensis, the ice-age giant cheetah. A size comparison can be seen here: Remember, my proposal is about 20% larger again than the larger cat in that image. Lemme know your thoughts I guess, if you have any!
