Advanced Operation Genesis came about after an amazing tool produced by Equinox enabled people to add new models into Jurassic Park Operation Genesis for the first time in the games fifteen year life and we here at Jagged Fang Designs jumped onto the chance with vigour and glee at the thought of at long last fully being able to mod a game that for all of us has been instrumental in our collective experience in our respective fields.

Species: L. arenatus

Animal class: Large

Containment procedure:

Due to specific behavioural patterns, entry to L. arenatus exhibits and containment areas requires Class Three (3) clearance from the owning parks board of directors. Staff entering such containment areas must be equipped with standard Class Four (4) Herbivore-repellent Suits to stop the animals from approaching staff, or alternatively the herd is to be mustered by standard Herdsman drones into a secondary containment paddock. Staff supposed to cater to L. arenatus’ needs possessing no prior experience in handling large Ornithopods is to be put through two(2) sessions of basic training and then must pass a mandatory test with grade 90% or higher before being allowed entry to the exhibit.

L. arenatus are known to be particularly unfussy in terms of feeding, most of the time it is advisable to allow them to browse on the non-toxic foliage within the exhibit, promoting natural behaviours, while also feeding them non-citrus fruit and supplementing their diet with freely available cuttlebone. If access to fresh, living plants is denied, L. arenatus will begin testing the perimeters, attempting to migrate to more habitable land, which may result in containment breach. In case of containment breach, park personnel are expected to enact Class Four (4) Large Ornithopod Containment procedures with attempts at using Herdsman drones beginning immediately after the staff is notified of the containment breach.

Paddocks are to be constructed of MEDIUM clearance fencing and the herds should consist of no fewer than three (3) mated pairs or six (6) individuals. Suggested main containment area size is 100x300 metres for up 6 animals with increase of space by a 100x100 metre worth of land with every added pair or 50x50 metre with every added non-mated animal. Preferable scenery is sparse woodland with a watering hole in the form of a small pond or shallow lake in the centre. L. arenatus herds are to be granted access to soft, moist ground in the form of muddy hole or lake shore, in which they will wallow daily, or, in nesting season, weekly. L. arenatus are known to be temperamental if perimeter fencing puts them next to large theropods or, in mixed modern zoos, large mammals. It is a priority to construct this species’ paddocks in a well suited environment, as keeping it calm and free of stress increases longevity, promotes more desirable natural behaviours and reduces chances of containment breaches paired up with heavy loss in human life, and thus chances of financial crisis.

Lurdusaurusarenatus Render


History & Description:

L. arenatus is one of the latest additions to parks featuring Mesozoic wildlife around the world, it was first introduced in St. Petersburg Prehistoric Animal Research Centre, year [REDACTED] and managed to slowly gain popularity of solid three (3) stars in parks, as well as mediocre popularity among wealthy private collectors. Primary colour of this animal is brown with heavily varied faint patterning and strong, cream coloured underside, as well as a facial “mask”, reminiscent of those worn by extant ungulates. Such pigmentation allows it to remain relatively undetected in its preferred habitat, which is sparse woodlands full of easily-accessible low-growing trees, from which L. arenatus browses throughout most of its day.

History of this animal is full of controversy among naturalists, not so much among thrill seekers. It was quickly discovered that it is one of the few species brought back that has particular lack of fondness of mammals. First hints towards this state of the matters were acquired by research staff in the facility that brought L. arenatus back to life. Three (3) personnel were mauled to death before proper containment protocols were developed and extensive study confirmed that it is not possible to tame or domesticate this species. In a preserve in Zambezian woodlands there have been attempts at introducing a herd of L. arenatus to an environment wiped almost clean of modern life by [REDACTED] incident, however the herd migrated out of the preserve and started wreaking havoc among local wildlife in neighbouring ecosystems, oftentimes attacking herds of large mammals in attempt to drive them away from newly acquired territory, as well as attempting to collectively seek and destroy any local predatory mammals, a behaviour which is quite consistent with why this species is not allowed anywhere near mammalian predators in modern mixed zoos and wildlife parks.

Normally, a species this aggressive to others would be considered undesirable among parks exhibiting large number of dinosaurs, however there is also the other side of L. arenatus – a somewhat gentle giant, at least to its own kin and very few species it happens to get along with. L. arenatus herds are tightly-knit and consist of pairs that mate for life, with dominant pair always nesting in the middle while subordinate pairs create a colony of nests around them, also filling fake nests with unfertilized eggs on the outskirts of the colony. Such nesting colony of this species might reach even 50m in diameter and the brooding pairs will furiously attack any non-tolerable species approaching it. Among clades (which is important, because this species seems to pick its coinhabitants based on general morphology) that have been considered safe for keeping with L. arenatus are animals like less temperamental ankylosaurians, small and medium-sized sauropods, as well as other ornithopods. Ceratopsians are also well received. Ceratopsians in general are ill-advised and should also be avoided at any cost as inhabitants of neighbouring enclosures. Lurdusaurus arenatus is one of the few extinct species that is plagued by modern external parasites and thus it is advised to make their exhibit open to allow local birds to help it out by picking any invertebrates trying to make its skin their home. Surprisingly, this species shows incredible resilience to modern bacterial- and viral diseases and will not contract them during such sanitary procedures, making the usage of local wildlife much less expensive than biweekly parasite treatment that endangers the life off the staff in case of too weak dosage of tranquilisers. No Lurdusaurus are known to become feral, mostly because [REDACTED] has almost entirely eradicated it from illegal trade and attempts from wealthy collectors that were unprepared to deal with this animal have rendered them educated and humbled or crippled, or dead for the better of this world’s ecosystems. In case of any sightings of feral individuals or herds, it is a priority to inform nearest prehistoric wildlife facility to enact recapture protocols, as L. arenatus is highly destructive and it’s been deemed vital to prevent finding out just how invasive this species can become.

Very impressive seriously well done some of the most detailed models i have ever seen for this game crazy stuff i remember when the modding for this game was in its early stages and it was said to be impossible to edit the models and well now look :) and quite accurate hopefully this mod will not have certain bias towards certain dinosaurs. I see it all over the internet size comparisons using exaggerated estimations of animals such as Spinosaurus and others while downgrading Tyrannosaurus by apparently using the made up maximum sizes for spinosaurus then using a fictional average size for animals such as trex. We have nowhere close to enough specimens for the species to determine a average size for tyrannosaurs so using an 10 or 11 meter long trex then using a made up 17 meter long spinosaurus which we have zero evidence for is just bias towards spinosaurus. We have a couple of specimens of trex that are 12 meters long such as Trix Sue Samson and Scotty and all of them weigh more and are much more bulky than the largest and most complete spinosaur specimen we have in fact most of the tyranosaurus rex skeletons weigh more than spinosaurus and giganotosaurus spinosaurus weighs around 6 to 7 tons same with giganotosaurs while tyrannosaurus rex weighs over 8 tons and that is fact. here is a good comparison of the large theropods is you are not convinced Deviantart.com

this looks great and much much much better than other apparently scientifically accurate mods that are not completely accurate and serve agenda against certain dinos like using over exaggerated verion of certain dinos then using smaller version of other dinos to make them seem much smaller than the exaggerated dinos like in one mod i saw very large exaggerated spino nd carcharodontosaurus then a smaller trex size used for tyrannosaurus to make it seem smaller when in reality trex was more heavy and robust than both these dinos and we have skeletons that prove this like sue specimen is more heavy than spino skeleton.

These are the main reasons why the AOG Devs are toxic and should not be endorsed or supported:
- they don't accept any criticism
- they think that literally every Mod is bad and theirs is the only good one
- they never say any positive thing to anyone, they start talking only when someone don't agree with their opinion.
- they consider other Dinosaur Game communities to be Toxic
- they hate JWE and JP/JW in general just because ''is isnt akkurat!1!1'

Are you for real? Like how would you know any of this?

Do you have any proof or are these just assumptions you've pulled out of your arse?

While we respect your opinions on this topic, we're going to have to respectfully disagree with all five of your points.

1: This is an objectively false statement as can be proven through one animal alone, Sinraptor/Yangchuanosaurus, our initial Yangchuanosaurus was pointed out to us by multiple people to in fact be Sinraptor. This resulted in the creation of the current Yangchuanosaurus and the proper renaming and releasing of Sinraptor as a bonus download. If we were, as you claim, to not accept any form of criticism, we would have quite actively denied the claims that our initial Yangchuanosaurus was Sinraptor and simply kept it the same, instead we recreated the entire animal.

2: We are under the assumption that this opinion stems from the livestreams that one of our members occasionally does in which he, alongside a large number of other people unrelated to JFD or AOG, actively looks at available JPOG mods in a negative light. However it is worth noting that these streams are not exclusively negative, more often than not either individual skins, models or parts of a project are complimented and if not typically the idea behind a mod itself is complimented. As to further dispel this point you've made it is worth noting that all members of JFD are looking forwards to several packs, including the Jurassic Park themed JPEP.

3: It is safe to assume this comment is derived from the same thing the previous one is, the livestreams, however these are not reflective at all of the overall opinions and comments members of JFD give to people within the modding community, for the most part we heavily encourage those attempting to utilise the new modding tools with some members even volunteering to assist with other packs that are in development. Every member, with the exception of Okeanos, is a fairly active member of the JPOG modding community with members conversing with the larger community on a near daily if not hourly basis on subjects outside of modding, JPOG and AOG.

4: Members of JFD do not utilise the term 'Toxic', however if members were to do so it would by no means apply to the vast majority of other communities based around Dinosaur themed games, an example of this would be the Prehistoric Kingdom community which we do not in any way consider 'Toxic' by any stretch. Everyone is free to like and dislike what and who they please in this regard and we would expect this to not be held against us.

5: Given that this is a mod for a Jurassic Park game alone should make this point invalid, however to further evidence against this we can state that one of our members has aided with the production of the Operation Godzilla mod and the JPEP alongside volunteering to aid both of those mods production in the future if required, two mods that fall very far outside of the spectrum of 'accurate' Dinosaur mods.

Given what we've evidenced above we would like to respectfully ask you do full research on JFD, the members, their opinions and the work they've assisted with before making accusations as you have.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Jurassic World. The quality of their animation is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical dinosaur physics, most of the finer details of their models and skins will go over a typical moder’s head.

There's also the raptors consistent pack behaviour, which is deftly woven into the creatures migratory characterisation- this behaviour draws heavily from Charles Marsh’s ‘Bone Wars’, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these details, to realise that they're not just Deus ex Machina- they say something deep about dinosaur LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Jurassic World truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the logical genius behind the Indominus rex’s evolutionary ability “thermal camoflauge,” which in itself is a cryptic reference to the epically camoflauged Borealopelta markmitchelli. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Colin Trevorrow’s genius wit unfolds itself on their Alienware monitors. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

"Borealopelta"

Don't you mean Nodosaurus? ;)

A common mistake. Nodosaurus doesn't have specimens nearly as complete as Borealopelta and does not preserve colour/pattern like Borealopelta does. Jurassic World producers understand this. I apologise for using a meme to convey some of the details of Jurassic World, because of delicately mixing humour with facts it seems many people don’t comprehend the level I’m talking on.

Most people watch Jurassic world without seeing any of the other films. i can tell you havent seen them so you won't understand how those other films misrepresent dinosaurs by making them behave like elephant packs. I for one respect movies like jurassic world who's producers actually took the time to watch things like walking with dinosaurs and represent them accuratley.

You must have seen a differente Jurassic World film then, specially in the latest one, dinosaurs move in a completely unrealistic way (Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus and Ankylosaurus galloping like horses...) and have tons of inaccurate behavior. But I won't reply any more because is pretty obvious that you're trolling.

I know you are well meaning but its clear you are out of date with palentology as noone in touch would use an example so flawed. Timurlengia euotica are horse sized dinosaurs and there are many dinosaur-horse anchestors like the Hyracotherium. Horses existed the same time as dinosaurs and there is extensive evidence there were crossbreeds and they picked up behaviour.
