Unique Monsters

As the first modmap, “Lost Island” comes with 3 unique monsters. But beyond that, of course, there are other old favorites in this archipelago, such as the Argentavis, Gallimimus, Raptors, Hyaenodon, Stegosaurus and much more.


The Armagasaurus Titancius is very nimble for its size and a pretty good swimmer. So escaping into the cold water isn’t really an option if you’ve angered this fellow. It also has a lot of spikes on its back, which it can even shoot as a weapon, causing frost or fire effects.


The Dinopithecus Anedmundius is visually a bit like a Mandrill monkey and can climb walls and disable Tek armor as well. When he appears in larger groups he is usually aggressive in his behavior. These characteristics make him a remarkable opponent.


Visually, the Sinomacrops Bondei looks a bit like a mix of a butterfly and a bat in dinosaur form, which makes it seem very cute. Fittingly, he is mostly a very docile fellow, which players can even use as a “flying device”. He can also apparently enchant opponents.

Focus on PvE

According to the map creator, the focus of this modmap is more on PvE gameplay (Player vs. Enemy), but this does not mean that there is no PvP. So there should be something for both sides, even if not to the same weight.

Biom diversity

The map will offer a wide range of different biomes. Among them are winter regions, steppes, a volcano, a desert, various jungle variants (e.g. swampy), coral reefs and many more. So your eyes should certainly not get bored when you wander over the map to uncover its secrets. Even more info about the map, and its development, can be found on the Twitter channel of the creator: Modmap “LostIsland” on Twitter
