Unique loot system of Caballus - Treasures

On Caballus, instead of Air Drops you can find Treasures, a loot system different from ARK: Survival Evolved. The Treasures match better to the background story and I want people to search harder for good Loot. REALLY GOOD LOOT.

The quality of Treasures are higher, so it is often possible to find ascendant Items and BPs.

I changed the content of the Treasures, so that there are no items like a blueprint for a doorframe in it.

Quality chain is: green - blue - yellow - red (underwater) - purple.

In the Treasures are Blueprints from the DLC Maps, too: For example a whip, or a Snow Owl Saddle BP.

Regions of Caballus

Caballus is a world born out of the heat.

Grown from lava, cooled and hardened in the wild sea. The largest of the Caballic islands. The still intact volcano formed a multi-faceted world with a variety of biomes, recourses and lives over millennia. Not long was this piece of earth left uninhabited. Ancient nomads first reached the coast of neighbouring islands, until they discovered the richness of resources of Caballus. The different nations were all equestrian folks: numerous, with strength and war experience; always with the goals of reaching wealth and making progress. They changed Caballus a lot, but as a completely new world Caballus turned everything upside down. New creatures were fought, nations continued their education, domestication started, new battles had to be won and leaders were overthrown. But who has remained?

Greed is a sin: Caballus stayed with the wild creatures, remaining horses, ruins and hidden treasures. Were they the first? Even this civilization did not discover all the secrets of this graceful lovely world.

What's your decision?

Cooperation or war?

Which of the equestrian peoples suits your character?

Three nations fought for Caballus:

The Blue Scythians, who populated the areas of Griffin Mountain, Redwood and the area covered with snow.

The Green Huns, which conquered the grassland, the swamp and the jungle.

Finally the Red Csíkos who managed the impetuous and threatening volcano area with the Black Widen and the Steppe.
