A spiritual successor to JPL's FCMs and a reboot of the FCM:HD this mod looks to make JPOG more true to the original trilogy. New models, edited animations, new sounds, new skins and even custom ENB settings to ehance certain weathers can all be expected.

Hello all! It's been quite a while since I've posted one of these and I felt it was an appropriate time to do a lengthy post considering the fact that all of the dinosaur models are basically done. Before I get into that I want to show off the final three dinosaurs:

Triceratops

First up is the Triceratops; there will be two models to chose from one is the JP version you see above and the other is the TLW/JP3 version:

TLW/JP3 Triceratops

Because it isn't clear if the individual from TLW is a female or not I'm not yet sure if you'll be able to have them both in game at once. However, there will be 4 skins for the triceratops. Two for the JP version and two for TLW/JP3 version each using their respective designs.

Next on the list is the Edmontosaurus:

Edmontosaurus

While Edmontosaurus did not appear in the flesh in the first three movies, its skull did appear in the Rex nest in TLW thus proving it was created by InGen. Since there was nothing to really go off of I created an original design for the model. The Edmontosaurus will have two skin designs that you'll again be able to chose from. One which will be the JPOG design, while the other will be based off of its brief appearance in TLW arcade game.

Finally, we'll take a look at the Proceratosaurus:

Proceratosaurus

Once again I went with an original design. It lacks the full crest of its scientifically accurate counterpart, but I felt it had more character with a Ceratosaurus like horn. As for the skin, I'll be going with a design that is inspired by Hellraptor's drawing of what a Proceratosaurus might have looked like if it appeared in any of the movies. Like a few of his designs for it I decided to give the models quills as well.


Before I shift gears 100% into Phase 2 of the mod I need to go back and edit some of the models; for example, it was pointed out to me that the Ankylosaurus will have animations issue if the spikes are not meshed into the topology of the model. I also feel some of the earliest models don't reflect my best work and I've gotten better since those; because of that I will be redoing some of the models as well. I would also like to take this time to ask for any and all criticisms from you guys. I want these models to be as good as they can be so please voice any concerns you may have. When doing so be as detailed as possible so that I have something to work with.

Phase 2 of the mod will be all about getting the skin designs done; that includes color design and texture. I will be recreating the textures of the dinosaurs seen in the films myself to ensure the highest quality. I anticipate these skins will take quite a while and will most likely be the most labor intensive part of the mod so you may have to be patient, but the payout will be worth it.

I'm thinking that a beta release could be ready for Fall but a date isn't set in stone. It may get pushed back a bit but it should be ready by the end of this year. The beta will include only the finished dinosaurs; buildings and environmental edits will come later on, perhaps sooner if the beta gets released in the Fall.

Right now 3 main DLCs are on the table. The DLCs themselves will focus on adding content from some of the video games released around the time of the original trilogy. I'm going to be lightly working on the DLC dinosaurs while the main mod is being worked on. This means that you could potentially see the first DLC around Christmas of this year, but no promises on that. The first DLC will add dinosaurs from TLW PS1 video game. One of the other DLCs will focus on upgrading the JPOG dinosaurs and the other will remain a mystery for now.

I know the dinosaur models took a bit longer than I had originally hoped, but I believe the quality will show through in the mod once it's complete. I'm very proud of the work I've done so far and I'm very excited to start on the next phase. As always, stay tuned for more updates!

You have to download the blender addon which allows you to import .tmd and export models as .tmd files. It's by hendrix and is on github

Allosaurus will be in the first DLC, I.rex has no place in this mod as it appeared in JW. This mod only pertains to the first 3 movies and DLCs will be inspired by toy lines, video games, and other media sources during that period from 1993-right up until JW's release in 2015.

Ok, let me know if I got this right: is this mod going to ge like other mods (Operation Nublar, for instance) where it will have all the species on InGen's list, including the "secret" dinos (Troodon, Spinosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Corythosaurus, Ankylosaurus)?

Also, I've never made a mod before (but I did combine certain mods that are supposedly incompatible). Could you tell me what programs you use to make new skins and models and all that? I'd really appreciate it.

Also, when is the release date? I really can't wait

Yes InGen's list along with the JPTG dinosaurs will be in this mod. This mod solely focuses on the franchise from 93-2015 right up until JW.

I used Blender to make the models and I use Gimp to make the skins. Both programs are free.

Currently there is no release date mainly because it's only me working on the mod and there's a lot to do. When some more dinosaurs are done I'll see if I can put out an alpha or beta release. The full scope of this mod is to eventually have new buildings too but it'll take a while for that.

Ok, great. This is the mod for then (Why can't somebody just make a mod with all those dinosaurs?!). Anyways, I also thank you for telling me the programs you use.

One last thing: will pterosaurs, such as pteranodon (and maybe the Cearadactylus from the book) be included? If so, could you figure out a way they could attack the ranger chopper? And would they have their own "bird cage"?

If you mean with all JW and JP dinosaurs there isn't enough room in the game. Even with this mod the user is going to have to pick and choose 40 species to have in the game at once when the DLC are done.

I want to include pteranodons (you can see the old model on it I did); I'm going to try it with the JP3 pteranodons first and if they come out successful then I will do more (TLW variant and others). The only way to have a bird cage is to remodel the fence models and then duplicate it. I think it's possible but I haven't tried it yet. That would come when I'd be changing the buildings. First the dinosaurs are being done, then the environment and finally the buildings.

No, I was actually referring to just dinosaurs from JPTG and all the dinos on original InGen list, plus those from JP3. I actually don't like that everybody is making JW themes, but whatever.

And, sorry fo another question, but here is my real "one last thing": will Carnotaurus be in this mod? And (if possible), will it be able to camouflage like it did in the book?

Ah I see, but yes the JPTG, Ingen list and movie dinosaurs will all be together.

As for the carnotaurus, it will be in the first DLC I do (the first will be based off dinosaurs that showed up in TLW PS1 game). I may also do a camouflage variant though, I have an idea of how it could be done atleast.
