Parkasaurus Update #017 : BETA v0.1

Don’t ask me how but we hit our Beta v0.1 milestone and that means one large step closer to an Early Access candidate. We get asked about release date a lot – and we are hoping to hit the end of the summer – but we’re not going to put out Parkasaurus if it just isn’t ready. While we’re sure you all will be understanding as we begin Early Access together – early supporters still deserve our best foot forward. We’re getting closer so be sure to pass on the word to Wishlist (it helps so much!!!)!

Setting Sun

With the newly updated free cam mode our newly introduced sun movement makes for some pretty amazing screenshots. In addition, we’ve been playing with random terrain generation. I’m not sure if we’ll be including this initially in Early Access but might leave it as an option. There is a lot more supporting work that is needed to make random terrain generation function properly. (It is a ton of fun though)

Kids will be Kids

Dino behavior and emergence! Excuse the bumpy camera (shakes when dinos run by) in this little clip of us catching some baby Kentrosaurus chasing their parents. It is fun to see all our freaking work start to pay off.


Giant Snuggles

We did a major second pass on dinosaur A.I. which included aggression and affection behavior. Sometimes at night, it seems the apatosaurus enjoy a little neck snuggle before falling asleep. Also check out that night sky!

Just a few baby Ankies chasing after mom. We can’t get enough of this. Why so many baby chasing mom pictures? Because pictures of us fixing a bug isn’t that exciting. 😊

UI Updates

We also did UI updates for our office spreadsheet and the portal room.
