July 2023


The Tennessee-based developer Timothy Dwyer launched the innovative modification map "Appalachia" in December through his indie game studio, Kaluga Studios. This map aims to represent the diverse regions of the Appalachians, from the frosty north to the scorching south, in various biomes. In addition, the map material is supposed to offer an extended range of native animals and be less overrun by dinosaurs. With an impressive area of 90,000 square kilometers, the map is considerable and is expected to be 65% complete by July.
