No biomes on an island[edit source]

No real biomes since the game takes place on an island. Should this page be deleted? Doctor Arson (talk) 09:08, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

I'd say. Unless someone can put forth major differences between proposed "biomes', I'll delete this page. I'll leave it up for today, though. If anyone, hopefully the author will speak up. If I see it pop up again after deletion, I'll leave it up longer for more discussion. - Gtoska (talk) 23:22, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
With snow and swamp biomes on the way, as well as the potential for more biomes later, I think this page needs to be here. -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 18:42, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I assumed since it was an island there wouldn't be any real biomes. It's a bit ridiculous to have multiple biomes in a 6km^2 area, but ARK isn't known for realism. haha. --Doctor Arson (talk) 02:44, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
As Illegal said, there are more biomes on the way. But even without that, there is quite a difference in dino presence, climate, and resources when comparing Beaches, Mountains, Forests, and Rivers. I say the page is a good idea. --Mr Pie 5 (talk) 06:03, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
I prefer IO, if you have to shorten my name. ;] -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 12:35, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Picture with v241 biome changes[edit source]

The new biome picture shows information for v241 which is not yet released. I wanted to make this fact clear by adding " for v241 and later" into the frametext for biome-image. However this failed with an "Inappropriate language prevention" message from the abuse filter. I think it should be made clear that this map does not yet reflect the ingame biomes. -- Gaddhi (talk) 14:42, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

I uploaded the updated picture, and just added a comment to clarify this doesn't reflect the current state of the game. Skylord1496 (talk) 15:51, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! -- Gaddhi (talk) 16:02, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Sorry Gaddhi, I updated the filter, that was an unwanted catch.--Cadaeib (talk) 16:04, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks -- Gaddhi (talk) 06:57, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
In my opinion, we shouldn't be using this image yet anyways. We should stick with the old one, which is currently accurate, and keep this new one in our back pocket until v241 (or whatever version the next biome update comes in; delays happen) releases.

Show both versions. The current for now and the new one with a note, so that survivors can prepare for the change. 21:28, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Sounds like a good idea - did that. -- Gaddhi (talk) 06:57, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
