We thank every one of you for your comments and continued support of this mod project. Today we will be seeing the end of the Jurassic in Jurassic Park: Advanced Operation Genesis with a grand total of twelve animals we have added an additional four animals to the original games Jurassic roster and doubled the amount of Sauropods!
And with that we move onto the final update of the Jurassic, featuring not only the first official Advanced Operation Genesis bonus animal but also the first Gargantuan Class animal of the mod.
Animal Class: GARGANTUAN
Entry to ecosystems featuring B.altithorax carries a minimum requirement of Class ALPHA (α) clearance from assigned staff, the park board of directors and at least 50% + 1 of all park investors. Entry to ecosystems featuring B.altithorax requires that staff inform the parks board of directors beforehand to aid in avoiding containment breach. Those entering the containment ecosystem are to be wearing Class ALPHA (α) Mechanised Herbivore Repellent Suits to prevent injury from B.altithorax individuals.
B.altithorax individuals are to be given constant access to at least three (3) tons (T) of plant matter to ensure full satisfaction of hunger and prevent containment breach. All fencing should be under constant surveillance by highly trained maintenance staff to ensure that containment fencing stays fully maintained at all times.
In the event of a full containment breach park personnel are to immediately enact Class ALPHA (α) Gargantuan Herbivore containment procedures, termination is ONLY advised if the area surrounding B.altithorax is clear of any and all staff, park guests, researchers, buildings and other containment area’s in order to prevent further damage or other containment breaches.
Containment area for B.altithorax individuals should be at the very least 800*800 Meters (M) in size and contain one (1) to three (3) individuals and feature at minimum HIGH clearance fencing. Containment areas are to be a mix of heavily forested and open area’s to help stimulate the migratory need B.altithorax individuals exhibit , feeding area’s should thus be placed within each forested section while water sources are advised to be placed in open areas.
History & Description:
B.altithorax is among the largest Sauropods known from the Jurassic standing at a staggering twenty seven (27) meters (M) in length and weighting on average fourty nine point three (49.3) tons (T) it maintains the title of the single largest terrestrial animal currently alive on the planet. B.altithorax individuals feature light patterning throughout their bodies made up primarily of dark grey striping over their lighter grey base scale colouration, outside of this the head of B.althorax features several blue markings at the front of its ‘crest’, this specific area is speculated to be an inflatable display organ going by the looseness of the skin in that area, however due to how little time this animal has been in available for at a sexually mature age it has currently not been observed in use.
B.altithorax was brought into the world in [REDACTED] and since becoming available to the park market has seen a massive amount of popularity owed almost entirely to its immensely impressive size, the immense scale this animal lives on defies human imagination and is often something guests consider highly memorable after a visit to a park featuring this animal, giving it a highly well-earned five star rating. However this immense popularity and size has had the singular negative effect of B.altithorax being an expensive animal to keep, this has led to it being very exclusive with only seven parks around the world featuring them with Arizona State Prehistoric Reserve being the only park to exhibit multiple B.altithorax individuals. This has allowed several observations to be made on the social aspects of B.altithorax, the most primary of which being its solitary nature, due to its sheer size other animals are actively seen as competition unless food is extremely abundant, this was observed on the introduction of a third B.altithorax in Arizona State Prehistoric Reserve resulting in the loss of three staff members lives and several remotely operated noise drones used to aid in breaking up a squabbling session between the two present B.altithorax and the newcomer.
This animal is currently entirely unavailable in the Private Dinosaur Trade legally due to the sheer requirements of keeping it alive, those that have tried have often been met with failure and, in a similar manner to M.hochuanensis, are left abandoned as juveniles in the modern world. Current estimates have put up to [REDACTED] juvenile B.altithorax being present in the wild.
And with that the mainstay of the Jurassic Period of Advanced Operation Genesis comes to a close, to celebrate this we present you all with two tokens of appreciation for supporting the mods work so far. The first is the release of Sinraptor hepingensis, formerly AOG’s Yangchuanosaurus, this animal is being released as a complete standalone bonus animal, we hope you all enjoy using it! The next is a singular family render at desktop size featuring the entirety of the Jurassic in this mod.
Now with the Jurassic finished we will be taking a short break from main animal updates to focus on other aspects of the mod, but rest assured weekly updates shall remain!
Thank you all for reading and your continued support of our work.
