Yes it has been asked before.
If you have the money and resources to buy and maintain it, you'll be able to fly any type of ship, this includes 'capital' ships.

Ok great game-project and nice comic, but are you going to make a newspost for every comic page that gets released?

Don't get me wrong, I really like the work you guys do, and you deserve some media attention
but newsposts about comics is not mod/indie game related. I'd rather not have all the mod related news get bumped down for webcomic news and 5 newspost about the same "organic indie pack" was not needed either.

It's not getting me more excited about the game and the development of it, on the contrary.
Please keep things like this for profile news, so that people who really care and "watch" the game see it, but not for the front-page.

Yeah, wings are useless in space and shouldn't be on spaceships, they only have some use when you enter an atmosphere. We aim to make spaceship designs that not only look cool, but are also believable and functional for it's environment.

InfinityAdmin works for a virtual reality company in Brussels, close to where he lives. If he isn't programming for his work he is programming for Infinity. I've never seen anyone so dedicated to a project. The fact that this is his goal and main occupation for many years makes me confident that eventually the game will get finished and that he will never give up on it. Infinity is a part of his life, and of that of many people working on Infinity.

You can find a nice amount of documentation on our website, please check:

Thanks! ;)

Yes you can land on planets, but you can't "walk" on the surface. You only controle spaceships in this game. The spaceships will have first person and third person view modes.

Yes you will be able to 'build' things on planets and even in space (spacestations).

As you say we have evidence of raptors hunting together, theres no fossil finds that suggest they lived alone and it wouldn't be very logic for a hunter of its size. To hunt in a pack you need to be 'smart' and raptors where one of the smartest dinosaurs (unlike the trex with its very small brain). There is evidence of small theropod dinosaurs eating from giant dinosaurs, and unless they scavenged those couldn't have been killed by one raptor. Also, raptors nested together.
I think they where a lot like lions.

A lot of paleontologist claim that the Trex wasn’t build to hunt, and I agree with that. With it’s small forelimbs and its size I just can’t see it hunt for big animals or small fast dinosaurs. You talk about the big amount of energy it needed, I just can’t see it spending a lot of energy in hunting. It’s only real weapon was its jaw, that was clearly designed to crush bones, its not practical for hunting. When you are a hunter, big size works against you, that’s why most theropodes seamed to evolve into small streamlined animals with strong forelimbs and huge claws. Animals build for speed and clearly build to kill, Trex doesn’t represent anything like that.

You know, I would love to say Trex was hunter, I just don’t see it happen!
So far we have no evidence at all of Trex killing something.

*the following is not to claim dinosaurs SHOULD have feathers/colors in your game*

I remember an article on the National Geographic website claiming they discovered Trex had feathers on his forelimbs. This probably also the only reason why Trex still had its forelimbs, that seemed complete useless before the discovery. One thing is sure; he wasn’t covered in feathers/proto-feathers completely since they found scale impressions of Trex.
You are correct about the elephants not having hair, still it is believed that dinosaurs not only used feathers to control body temperature but also to attract mates and scare enemies with colors, like a lot of birds do. In this case feathers wouldn’t disappear completely because they would play a big role in the sexual selection of those animal. Of course those are still speculations.

Still while feathers for Trex might still be questionable, feathers for raptors are almost 100% sure. Still, even featherless dinosaurs probably used colors skin as a display (for example: triceratops and stegosaurus).
I think Dinosaurs where very colorful, unlike you see in most movies, and we clearly see that with birds today who are actually dinosaurs, as you know.

and I don't understand why. It makes hissmall forelimbs (where the feathers were) less pathetic and it's a nice way to add some subtile (agressive) color. Trex was an ugly motherf*cker, like most scavengers, a couple of feahers are not going to make him look cute.

But I can understand your point about not being able to make everyone happy, notheless I will be happy with any dinosaur game, so I'm sure with this one too. As I said, I love Jurassic Park, thats what got me hyped about dinosaurs, and the hype never went over with me.

One last question: I'm sometimes getting tired of seeing the same kind of dinosaurs over and over again. There are many species that almost never get used but look at least as bad-*** as the over-the-top remakes you see most of the time; dinosaurs like Masiakasaurus, Therizinosaurus and Megaraptor.
Any plans of adding 'non-traditional' species?

We have a pretty good idea nowadays. We know more about the T-rex than we do about the blue whale. We know for example that Trex would never go into forest/jungles like most dinosaurs of its size. We know that he was probably a scavenger and not a hunter. We know that T-rex lived alone, while small raptors lived and hunted in pacs. Furthermore we know that T-rex and many other theropods (probaby all of them) had feathers, likely with agressive colors to scare enemies and attract mates.

So I guess you are going for the Hollywood remakes, since most people know them like that? Does that include Deinonychus that are named 'Velociraptor' (= dog-sized)?

Thats not a bad think, I love Jurrassic Park, just hope one day a game will have more realistic dinosaurs :)
