Tellurian is a mod for Impossible Creatures which we hope will: 1). Balance IC, so that as many stock creatures are as useful as possible. 2). Fill out the IC genetic library with new, interesting stock creatures that are useful without being overpowered. 3). Provide a whole new experience without sacrificing the fundamental feel of IC. 4). Introduce modelling and modding techniques which have never before been available to anyone besides the Impossible Creatures developers themselves. 5). Be continually updated, and improved, so that no creatures remain overpowered or "abused" for long. It is important to note that we're striving for professionalism, here. That means proper science-y creature bios and mostly sensible abilities-- though some sacrifices have to be made in the name of balance.
First, I'd like to apologize for keeping our ModDB followers in the dark for so terribly long. It seems the 2.4 announcement never quite made its way to this site. Hopefully, most of you have been keeping up with our other release platforms on the Steam Workshop and GoG.com, but if not, then fret not, as today is the day Tellurian triumphantly returns to ModDB. To get you all up to speed, here's a (very) brief summary of what's been done since 2.03, our last official release on this site.

- Velvet Worm: Size 1 direct ranged unit with Pack Hunter
