The map was created by Steven "MeloCa" Nadeau, Thom "Spebby" Mott, Ben "Paladin" Hoefer, and Nolan "Azz" Ross. Special thanks were given to Doug Soderstrom, Danaby2, Madison "Froggo" Wilder, and Timo987.
- The map was in development for 334 days.
- There are quite a few references present on the map.
- The business "Boardwalk Burgers" is a reference to the Official Podcast, and the copypasta associated with it.
- A note references the "Change Da World" meme from September of 2019.
- The "Fallen Tree" graffiti references a bug that was present in early versions of the map's development.
- Terevaka is depicted in-game as an active volcano, despite the real-life one being classified as "extinct".
- This was done in order to make that part of the map more interesting, and unique, as other volcanoes on the island (Rano Raraku and Poike) are depicted more accurately.
- The majority of the Moai statues face the centre of the island.
- This is similar to real life, as all but one Ahu; Ahu Akivi (Group of Moai), face inland
There are twelve location nodes on the map. Map Nodes: Orogno Lookout • Ahu Vinapú Beach • Hanga Roa • Ahu Tongariki • Rano Raraku Harbor • Piki Farm • Rano Kau • Piko Resort • Poike Resort • Terevaka • Mataveri Airport • Akahanga Burial Grounds There are also seventeen unlisted locations on the map. Unlisted Locations: Abandoned Farm • Abandoned Weather Station • Crustacean Station • Destroyed Campsite • Western Beach • Tidepools • Outpost: Alpha • Outpost: Charlie • Northern Fissures • Sunken Ship • Freighter • Pirate Wrecks • Vermillin Scouting Boat • Great Chasm • Banana Shed • North • South •
It is an active volcano covering the north area of the island, with visible lava rivers and many cracks filled with lava pools. It also has a large Vermillin Research Centre close to the top, with catwalks crossing over lava rivers and leading to the caldera. An additional underground bunker is connected to the surface base via an elevator and a cave system further underground. Entering the surface base is dangerous due to the abundance of Burner Zombies (and Acid Zombies to a lesser extent) that lurk throughout.
All of the volcano's slopes are almost entirely barren and full of ash, save for abundance of Chartreuse Berry bushes. There are also wrecked vehicles and buildings, evidently destroyed by an eruption concurring just before the zombie outbreak.
A Mega Zombie may spawn in the car park of the surface base or one of the rooms in the underground base. A fire-breathing one may also spawn on the catwalks.
Hanga Roa is a Medium-Sized town located in the West of the map, the location is divided into 3 parts, The Suburbs, the "Ring", and the Boardwalk. Unlike most towns in Unturned, the location doesn't make use of "Road Line" objects and instead opts to use the "Road Nodes" system in order to make a more interesting and "loose" town. To the north of the town, a playground can be found.
The location is home to a Gun Store, Apothecary Store, Bisto, Hardware Store, Fire Station, Police Station, Grocer, Diner, Park, Fishing Store, Burger Store and a Suvinour Shop, seven houses can also be found here. Most buildings present (Except the Gun Store, Hardware Store and Bisto) are custom objects, giving the town a more unique look compared to other towns in Unturned of a similar size.
A Water Reserve is present at the location, A well can be found on the South Edge of the town, and a Water Tower can be seen North East of the town.
Due to being the only town on the map, and a location most players will encounter early on, it's not uncommon to run into one or two other players here. Shoot-outs are also common, and it may be worth avoiding the location entirely unless the player is properly prepared to deal with another player.
The player can find a wide variety of Vehicles at this location, Police Launchers, Jetskis. Runabouts, Offroaders, Police Cars, Fire Trucks and other land vehicles aren't uncommon finds at this location. A Rhinoceros can rarely be found at this location, spawning near the Crashed Police Car.
This location contains two "Sub Areas", thus two sections will be dedicated to it. It is displayed on the map as "Rano Raraku Harbor"
Rano Raraku Quarry:
A boulder-like structure situated in the Extinct Cauldera of Rano Raraku. It is populated mostly by Moai Zombies and Metal Nodes. A large amount of Moai are present at this location, as this is the very Quarry they were constructed at. The Eastern Flank of the hill is covered in Moai, all facing towards the centre of the island.
A water reserve is present at the location, with not only a dirty source of water but also a toilet, which water can be collected from.
The location is a great place to stock up on metal and low tier weaponry, as Moai Zombies drop a variety of low tier weaponry. Prior to Version 1.1, Moai Zombies dropped mostly the same drops as Vermillin Zombies.
The location is pretty dangerous, due to the Moai Zombies taking more hits than regular zombies, and due to the locations "Central" nature, being in between a number of loot Hotspots and Base Locations. It's not unlikely that the player might run into another player while at this location.
Prior to version 1.1, a Mega Zombie can also be found at this location, spawning in the centre of the Quarry, making the location rather even more dangerous than it already would have been.
Rano Raraku Harbor:
The "Main" sub-location. Rano Raraku Harbor is a Harbor situated in the North-East of the map, just south of the Abandoned Weather Station, and North of Poike Resort. The location has a Vermillin Research Centre on the docks, that appears to be researching local plant life. The Harbor is also home to a docked Cargo Ship, which has a crashed Pelican on the Helipad. Like most Harbors, there are a large number of Containers present at the location.
A Mega Zombie can spawn at this location, spawning on the docked Cargo ship. Making the Cargo ship very dangerous to enter without proper-preparation.
The location is also dangerous in general, due to being a high-population location, with many players visiting.
Akahanga Burial Grounds:
A small Vermillin Outpost, located to the central-East of the map. This, along with Hanga Roa and Mataveri Airport are common location for a newly spawned player to visit. It is characterised by the grave of King Hotu Matu'a, the abundance of Moai, the surrounding terrain wall, and the small Vermillin Outpost.
The location can spawn typical Vermillin loot, and isn't too dangerous of a location for the player to visit, as most players won't revisit this location unless they are newly spawned.
A small airport located in the centre of the map, it, alongside Hanga Roa and Akahanga Burial Grounds is a common first location for new players. The location consists of two Plane Hangers and a small extended facility. Unlike most airports in Unturned, the Control Tower is directly connected to the waiting area. A Post office is also present at the location, next to the waiting area. The waiting area has a number of smaller businesses, giving the Airport more loot than a typical airport.
Prior to version 1.1, the airport was significantly harder to enter, due to there being few broken fences.
The location is relatively safe, despite being in the centre of the map. The most a player may encounter are other poorly equipped players.
The Sunken Ship is a submerged pirate shipwreck surrounded by a large amount of Coral located in the North-West of the map.
The zombies that spawn at this location take more hits than normal, Flanker and Spirit zombies are more common at this location, so it's worth bringing a Melee weapon. The zombies also have more health than most zombies around the map.The location will require that the Diving skill is maxed out, even then it's recommended to bring additional oxygen supplementary items, such as Diving Tanks, Snorkels, Wetsuit Top, Wetsuit Bottom or Algae. The player will also need to bring along light providing items, such as a Flashlight, Tactical Light, Headlamp, Flares, Civilian Nightvision or Military Nightvision. A Pirate Key is also needed in order to fully loot the location properly, due to a Pirate Chest being present, however, one can be found in the hull of the ship.
