This mod will include updated and reworked models for most dinosaurs, and will eventually also include tonnes of optional dinosaurs. This idea came about because I got sick of looking at the vanilla Albertosaurus and its dumb head.

Happy belated new year, folks!

I'm very excited to reveal the 15 new animals which will be included in the mod, as well as answer some FAQs. So, without further ado...

A Different Branch


Alioramus - The smallest tyrannosaur in the park. Unlike its cousins, however, Alioramus is asocial and prefers to live and hunt alone. Don't let its' size fool you, this is an extremely vicious and cunning predator.

The Argentine lizard


Argentinosaurus - The largest animal in the park and a contender for the largest of all dinosaurs, Argentinosaurus is a sight to behold. It's gigantic size and tough hide make it extremely difficult to take down, even for large carnivores.

The Wild Horn-Face


Bravoceratops - A heavily-built cerotopsian dinosaur, Bravoceratops is perfectly evolved to take on large carnivores. Highly aggressive and territorial, they prefer not to live with others of its species.

The Flexible Lizard


Camptosaurus - Related to Iguanadon, Camptosaurus is a quick and agile Jurassic dinosaur. They use speed and numbers to outwit potential predators.

The Funeral Pyre Lord


Citipati - From a distance, it would not be unreasonable to mistake Citipati for a modern-day cassowary bird. Highly timid and very gregarious, these omnivores are useless in combat. Care must be taken to make sure they are given appropriate prey.

The Frightful Lizard


Daspletosaurus - Jurassic Park's second largest tyrannosaur, Daspletosaurus combines T-Rex's ferocity and Albertosaurus' speed. They like to live and hunt in small family groups, and should be housed together when possible.

The Terrible Hand


Deinocheirus - Not all of the giant theropods in Jurassic Park are predators. Deinocheirus is related to Gallimimus, but it prefers to live alone. It has an affinity for water, and may have been a fish-eater.

Meat-Eating Bull


Carnotaurus - As an Abelisaurid, Carnotaurus can be summed up as a mouth on legs. A highly active and voracious predator, it requires a large amount of food for an animal of its size.

The European Lizard


Europasaurus - Being not much larger than a modern giraffe, Europasaurus is an example of a dwarf sauropod. Being small means this animal is capable of a decent burst of speed if necessary, and it also does not require the sheer amount of food that the other sauropods do.

The Fish Hunter


Ichthyovenator - A relative of Spinosaurus, this animal is adapted for a for a life by the river's edge. Actually a fairly shy and timid animal, Ichthyovenator uses its size and appearance to ward off potential predators,

The Iguana Tooth


Iguanadon - Related to the hadrosaurs, Iguanadon browses on four legs and runs on two. This herbivore is very popular despite its dull appearance.

The Titanic Swan


Olorotitan - This large hadrosaur is a favourite thanks to its colourful crest and peculiar vocalisations.

Many Thorns


Polocanthus - If Ankylosaurus is the dinosaur equivalent of a battle tank, then Polocanthus is the dinosaur equivalent of an armoured car. This dinosaur is more than capable of defending itself, and is also capable of moving at a decent speed, too.

The Narrow Claw Lizard


Stenonchyosaurus - Despite being related to raptors, this theropod is far less aggressive. In fact, the 'wounding tooth' that gives Troodontids their name may have actually accomodated an omnivorous diet. Nevertheless, it is a highly cunning and capable hunter.

The Savage Lizard


Torvosaurus - A truly frightening Jurassic predator, Torvosaurus was a very powerful dinosaur. It prefers to live and hunt alone,

Now, for the FAQs...

"When will the mod be available?" I will release the mod as soon as possible, probably by the end of the month.

"Why didn't you make X dinosaur?" I don't know, really. Its more fun to model different looking dinosaurs. Dinosaurs like Giganotosaurus and Saurophaganax might be available in the future, but they aren't a priority simply because I think they would be rather boring.

"X dinosaur isn't boring! Its my favourite!" More power to you. However, exceedingly popular dinosaurs like Apatosaurus and Baryonx have been done to death, I feel.

"Will you make X dinosaur?" Sure, tell me what you'd like and I'll have a go. I'm not interested in Jurassic World, though, so I don't think I'll be making hybrids or anything crazy.

"Will there be DLC?" Yes.

Cheers for reading my thing. Have a good year, JPOG fans.

I’m not too sure of what I should do with Iguanadon, really. In my opinion, he’s probably the most boring dinosaur in the mod. Iguanadons have been found in large numbers, so he probably wasn’t that aggressive. I might make him a loner since there’s currently a debate as to whether large Iguanadon finds actually indicate herding behaviour or not. I’ll have to do more research on him to be honest.

brach10, you could make any herbivore defend itself with PMEP or simply changing its TClass to toro, styrac, tricera, or even make a shant by changing its spcl_gen_lk_lp animation to spcl_gen_ru and then changing its TClass to brach

Argentinosaurus...................... literally about time a mod has arrived that adds an argentinosaurus, i mean i guess the WWD mods have argentinosaurus but i like your design personally

Sauropod necks is definitely a contentious issue. I love the WWD sauropods, but we have to remember that that show is 20 years old and the science has changed a lot. I was kinda upset when I found out diplodocus had changed, but we must accept and follow the science.

Nice mod but will there be separate digsites for some dinosaurs (eg. Langenberg Quarry for Europasaurus and Udurchukan Formation for Olorotitan) or will they just be put into the existing digsites?

Unfortunately as far as adding new dig sites and things is concerned, I’m completely out of my depth. While it would be nice to have individual digsites, the way the game is designed doesn’t make it very easy to do so. Maybe if I edit animations then I’ll add new digsites, but at the moment that’s also way beyond my ability.
