Sebastian's Prehistoric Fauna


#1

Words are cheap, have some ancient animals.

Lystrosaurus

A dicynodont that flourished during the early Triassic period.

Proterosuchus

An archosaur and distant cousin of modern-day crocodiles that lived in the early Triassic.

Velociraptor

A small desert-dwelling dromaeosaur from the Late Cretaceous period.

Nice work! :slight_smile:
I would suggest to add another voxel line to the top of the back (just 1(2) line(s) in the middle), and another line to the front (maybe just the gray part). At this time these areas are looking a bit too “flat” in my opinion…

The model will assuredly be altered in the future, once I begin work on the mod it is for.

Until then, sate your thirst for long-dead beings with this critter.

Proterosuchus

An archosaur and distant cousin of modern-day crocodiles that lived in the early Triassic.

Insert comment about the awesome looking dinosaurs here…

:wink:

Here’s a thought: make some sort of “lost valley/island” version, with these lovely critters spawning there waiting for some poor sod to discover them. Would be a nice way of meshing all these with vanilla Stonehearth. Obviously would require the map generation stuff to be updated a lot, because we’re still limited to the tiny square and all that ATM.

Since you didn’t italicize “dinosaurs”, I’m going to assume you did that intentionally.

For your own safety, I recommend against doing that within my general vicinity.

I can get quite dangerous with my taxonomy book.

I just saw an article about this new movie, “Jurassic World”, and it got me reminiscing.

You know, one of the very first movies I watched as a child was Jurassic Park. My favorite dinosaur in that movie was velociraptor. Six feet tall, smart as a chimp, fast as a cheetah, etcetera. Well, then I learned that velociraptor was three feet tall and covered in feathers…

Still my favorite dinosaur.

I hope you like this model as much as I enjoyed making it.

Velociraptor

A small desert-dwelling dromaeosaur from the Late Cretaceous period.

That actually looks a bit like a duck-billed dinosaur or something to me :confused: …

I’m thinking perhaps a more detailed model would do it more justice perhaps - Stonehearth manages to get quite a few voxels used to make its humans after all. I think some more detail, eg for teeth etc, would help here.

Technically it was a deinonychus, not a velociraptor :stuck_out_tongue: . But yeah, loved seeing those things in the movie :slight_smile: . How I wish they hadn’t discovered that dinosaurs were covered in feathers though - it’s just not the same :frowning: …

I don’t see any problem with this model. It certainly doesn’t look like a hadrosaur. At least, it certainly wouldn’t once you animate the hands. Either way, I like it like this. It’s adorable. :blush:

Michael Crichton used “alternative” taxonomy. In Jurassic Park, it’s velociraptor antirrhopus.
