****Counted again from my mod notes instead of the guide, and got 719. This is weird. Presumably, this is punishment for my hubris in recreating dinosaurs.

You modders got so preoccupied with whether or not you could that, uh, you never stopped to think if you should.

BTW if I can make a suggestion, I think more pterosaurs would be cool. Does your mod have Thalassodromeus yet? :)

I hadn't done that one, but I'll add it in with the ones I need to rebuild.

*Alright, I think I've regained control of the mod. All animals should be in every version of the mod, the missing creatures have been recovered or rebuilt, woolly rhinos give yarn, and Thalassodromeus has been added. I should recount and figure out exactly how many creatures there are soon, but the work is done.

**Alright, I went through the mod with Firefox and counted one more time. Unless I missed any again, there are 526 animals in total. I wonder where I got the extra 14. I liked having 540, maybe I'll just add a few more sometime. Please let me know if you find any bugs or have any suggestions for new animals.

If you're taking suggestions then I've got some:

Dinosaurs:
-Miragaia - a long-necked stegosaurid;
-Ichthyovenator - a spinosaurid with a notch in its sail;
-Antarctopelta - a small ankylosaurid with long spikes on its shoulders;
-Sauroposeidon - one of the largest sauropods, pretty well known too;
-Magyarosaurus - a tiny sauropod, not much larger than a cow;
-Rugops - a small abelisaur;
-Thanos - another abelisaur. Not very notable, but it shares the name with a certain space raisin;

Pterosaurs:
-Hatzegopteryx - a well-known Quetzalcoatlus relative;
-Nyctosaurus - a pterosaur with a strange-shaped crest;
-Dsungaripterus - a stout pterosaur with characteristically shaped skull;
-Pterodaustro - a filter-feeding pterosaur with baleen-like teeth;

Mammals:
-Synthetoceras - a protoceratid with a forked horn on its nose;
-Amphicyon - a bear-dog;
-Dinopithecus - a giant baboon;
-Castoroides - a giant beaver;
-Mylodon - a smaller ground sloth;
-Cave hyena - an ice age subspecies of spotted hyena;
-Kubanochoerus - a large hog. Males have a single horn on their foreheads;

Other:
-Longisquama - a lizard-ike creature with elongated scales protruding from its back. NOT AN ANCESTOR OF PTEROSAURS, David Peters is a hack, watch out never to use his artworks as a reference. Mini-rant over, please carry on;
-Sharovipteryx - a lizard-like creature with wings on its legs, how cool is that?
-Palaeobatrachus - just a frog;
-Metriorhynchus - a fully aquatic crocodyliform;
-Mioproteus - a prehistoric olm, probably not living underground;
-Onchopristis - a 10 meter sawfish, possibly preyed upon by Spinosaurus;
-Purlovia - a herbivorous therapsid with large canines. It's in ARK, so it's not like it's completely unrecognizable

Alright, I wrote all those down for the next time I add creatures. I especially like the cave hyena and Hatzegopteryx. Hateg Island was a cool place. Thanks for the warning regarding David Peters! I'll make sure to only use his writings from now on.

Yeah, you should generally be skeptical of anything said by David Peters, since AFAIK he's actually an artist rather than an established scientist. Some of his stuff from the 90s is pretty good, but then he kind of went off the deep end with a whole bunch of extremely controversial ideas that he basically demanded all professional palaeontologists start listening to.

Enough derailing of the thread though, back to discussing the mod. :P Tanystropheus would also be cool, if you haven't added it yet. ;)

That's a good suggestion, but Tanystropheus is already in the mod. It even has a custom color associated with it to make it look a bit more like it did in Spongebob.

The mod has been updated to include all of these suggestions. I did change the name of Amphicyon to "bear dog", at least for now. I also used your descriptions for a couple of them.

Here's a weird one; https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myotragus

It's a sheep/goat (apparently most closely related to sheep, but more an in-betweener) that lived on the island of Majorca in the Mediterranean. They have perennial (constantly-growing) lower incisors, but no upper incisors at all, their eyes face forward, their snout was short, they had short stubby legs making them about 20 in/50 cm tall at about 150kg, humped back, arched rump and short horns on both sexes. They were apparently cold blooded (based on seasonal, slow growth rates) and slow growing, reaching full size at 12 years, but newborns were pretty big. Also, apparently, unusually small brain (evolutionary biologists suggest this is because on a small island with limited resources and a lack of predators, a big brain is a waste of energy.)

They look kind like a dik-dik with the arched back.

Me: What're you up too?



(This isn't supposed to be drama or anything, just a little joke, since I still can't get the motivation to do... well anything, but also to work on my mods)

Thanks for the suggestion. I've been wanting to get to 555 animals, so I'll add Myotragus and a few other animals shortly.

Me: What're you up too?



(This isn't supposed to be drama or anything, just a little joke, since I still can't get the motivation to do... well anything, but also to work on my mods)

Still...




*Edit:The update has been released. Myotragus has been added to the mod, alongside Barbary lions, California grizzlies, Rabb's fringe-limbed treefrogs, and golden toads.

Weredilophosaurs should spit venom, just a suggestion. :P

That's a good idea, I'll keep it in mind for the next time I update.

I wasn't really planning on adding more werecreatures, but then I realized the "outdated monsters" theme I gave them provided me with the opportunity to add the Crystal Palace Iguanodon and Megalosaurus and decided to add those two. Weremegalosaurus and wereiguanodon have been added to the mod. The weredilophosaur has been given a smaller size and deadly spit, per PlumpHelmetMan's suggestion.

Along with those two werecreatures, I've added 19 new animals.
