Who else wants to see a Saurian game with these rock formations? Let's share ideas about which dinosaurs and other animals, we could see in these locations
What's on your mind?
Is it hard to keep up with the parents as a hatchling Dakotaraptor in Saurian?
So I've been playing Saurian recently, and I am enjoying it. Due to my somewhat rich gameplay I decided to give a little bit of what my experiences and my choices through the game influence the life of my Dakotaraptor. Here's the list of animals in the game and what do I do with them:
Dakotaraptor (I cannot recall one single moment where I was killed by a Dakotaraptor at any life stage. I am the guy who sistematically follows his parents to make sure they will do something that makes sense for ONCE. Anyway, I keep myself hydrated and fed if my parents end up not helping at all, which most of the times its what happens. Once you're independent, Dakotaraptor are fairly easy to handle. You can easily kill any Dakotaraptor younger than you, by just giving them like one to three bites and they die in a emotionless manner. Hatchlings are the saddest because they don't even react to the attack, they just die. I usually avoid Dakotaraptors of the same age as I am, unless I am really hungry, but until now I haven't really had no major issues when approaching them, and killing other Dakotaraptors of the same age as me is a good challenge. Dakotaraptors older than you are to be avoidable, but usually just keeping an eye on them and running away from them solves everyone's problems)
Acheroraptor (I died very few times to these guys, the only ones I can recall is when I wasn't paying attention when hunting one as a juvenile. They are predators for hatchlings, but once you're a juvenile or a subadult they can be reliable prey. I would prefer not biting them on the ground (it looses all the hype). I prefer using RPR. As a juvenile I actually lure them to me, often biting them is enough, and then I jump only to land on their back. Easy peasy! Subadult is also done in a simillar fashion, but if you're a very fresh subadult, try not letting the Acheroraptor bite you, or you'll easily loose half of your life in one bite. Killing an Acheroraptor as an adult is pointless, because they don't even run away from you for a long time)
DePalma's Ornithuran (aka bird. These are animals I also don't care that much. I am very bad at aiming at small things and, once this is the smallest animal in the game, I am unable to catch these flutterers alive, unless they are bugged, and forget to fly away. I can only remember one time I caught one of these before it flies away from my reach. If you're good in catching them, use them as a food supply as hatchling and juvenile, you may very well forget them as subadult and adult)
Ornithomimid (God bless the ornithomimid. Even though you can die as a youngster, because they trample you, once you reach adult stage, they are the sweetest of big game. Ornithomimids either don't care about you or frenetically run away from you. I prefer starting to hunt them when I'm like 5 years old, when I am nearly an adult. The best way is RPRing the damn beast. The best way to catch a ornithomimid is by literally jumping to a flock of them, and you'll eventually fall in the back of one. Another strategy, if that doesn't work, is biting one, and it will turn its back and attempt to attack you, and then you just have to jump onto its back. Through an entire gameplay, I must have killed from 2-8 ornithomimids. Again, God bless the ornithomimids. Makes me feel bad its not a playable)
Tyrannosaurus (I usually don't care about them. They are not very common, and through an entire gameplay, you find like 0-3 Tyrannosaurus, most of them at the distance, hunting ornithomimids, Pachycephalosaurus and Anatosaurus. The only thing you have to do is get the hell out of its way, and leave him alone. I know its a bummer when a T-rex is eating your fresh Pachycephalosaurus kill, but other than a fruitless threat call, the only thing you can hope for is that he doesn't eat it whole. Another big bummer, is when you are busy RPRing a Pachy and then a T-rex comes out of nowhere and one-shots you. Tyrannosaurus are so rare, that they are a beauty everytime one appears in front of me. However, having Tyrannosaurus around you can be benefitial, as long as they leave dead corpses of their prey behind. Dead ornithomimids, Pachycephalosaurus, Anatosaurus and even other Tyrannosaurus are killed by these, and because they don't eat the carcass whole, you may very well feast on that meat for a good amount of time)
Ankylosaurus (Another animal I don't care. Ankylosaurus are the rarest dinosaurs in the game, in an entire gameplay you see like 0-2 of them, because they are only found in the bluffs, although in one gameplay I saw like 3-5 of them, maybe more, mostly because I spent most of it in the bluffs. Because they are heavily armoured and have a plus at the end of the tail, I only find them avoidable. I tried to kill one as an adult, but they are just too strong)
Denversaurus (In the other hand, I found Denversaurus quite tantalizing. They are quite peaceful and ignore you, they don't bother with your presence or the presence of any animal in fact. They just wander around in the plains doing whatever. I tried to hunt some down, as an adult and even as a subadult, obviously didn't resulted in a casualty on the side of the Denversaurus, but I did died by one. Maybe I will take one down as a superadult. But who cares, its just an impossible dream)
Thescelosaurus (God bless Thescelosaurus... sort of. Thescelosaurus is an amazing animal. Try to hunt them down as a subadult and an adult, good prey. The earliest you can try to take one down is when you're close to the subadult stage but not quite, in the juvenile stage. Because they don't run very fast, you can keep their pace, and just jump various times until you make sure you hit its back. RPR is the answer to everything fokes, although they are easier to kill on foot than ornithomimids. Although they are very good prey for a subadult, once you get to an adult the more common ornithomimids are much more worthy, but nevertheless still on the menu)
Anatosaurus (Every single uncult people seem to like this "adorable" hadrosaur. Guess what, they are the devil... in green. Anatosaurus don't care about you when you're a baby, but they will look at you with murderous eyes when you're an adult or a subadult. Don't mess with them, and stay away from their feet and tails (deadly stuff). I tried to kill some as a super-adult... it wouldn't work anyway)
Pachycephalosaurus (I could think they were worse. Even though they are quite challenging, and above all, agressive, taking them down is a challenge that is easily solved for the pro-RPR community. Try to take them as an adult only, you can try as a subadult, but it likely wont work. The best way to take one down is just literally draw them to you and then just jump to their back. The sensation of a successful Pachycephalosaurus kill is satisfying, as well as the meat, which pretty much tastes and looks the same as in any animal. Stay away from them if you don't want to be stepped on, also, do not hunt one that is in the company of another of its kind, and stay away from them as a subadult and adult, that is if you don't want to eat it right now.)
Triceratops (In contrast to the Anatosaurus, the Triceratops is a pretty cool dino. Its a gorgeous animal, they don't bother me, I don't bother them. I have a profound respect for the Triceratops, maybe because they are going to be the next playable dinosaur! Anyway, the only thing you have to do in their presence is just stay away from them. Let them trample your Thescelosaurus carcass or kill an occasional Didelphodon. I have so much respect for these animals that I ignore them as an adult, to the point I don't even know if they are agressive to me at this life stage)
Quetzalcoatlus (Even though I like the animal as it is, I can't help it but to feel that this purely ambient pterosaur is a little bit annoying. Not because it is the only animal around my size or smaller that I've never been able to kill, also because they don't let me. The Quetz is mainly annoying because it always has the rude habit of screaming at me. It is not infrequent that I am led to believe that a Dakotaraptor is around my territory, only to then proccess the sound and find out it's just a Quetz. Other than that, the animal is a pretty good addition, mainly for the sake of ambience. However, the Quetzalcoatlus is a quite reachable flier, as you can see that it flies below the redwood tree tops. As a juvenile, I had the lucky view of a Quetz passing just by my side, when climbing a redwood tree. However, I recognize the unlikelihood of meeting a Quetzalcoatlus mid-air. Dammit)
Borealosuchus (3,5 meters. Can kill a 5,5 meter Dakotaraptor. Nah, this animal should be easy to kill as an adult right. Well, how many parents were lost to these aquatic reptiles? The numbers are incalculable. Here's my advice, keep away from them. Unless you're a superadult, and decide to use your superb strength to kill one, don't ever go close to them. Look everywhere for these guys before going to the water)
Brachychampsa (Virtually the same thing as the Borealosuchus. It is a bit disturbing that the Brachychampsa is able to kill an adult Dakotaraptor which is more than two times longer! Scientific accuracy... Anyway you can easily kill it as a superadult or even just as an adult, even though very, very risky. Big secret, try to kill it in RPR and bite it frenetically until it dies. It dies pretty quickly, and the same goes for its larger cousin, although it is easier for Brachychampsa. Brachychampsa and Borealosuchus often leave the water environment to go to a carcass you killed. As a subadult and adult, make a threat call in an attempt to make them stop chasing the carcass, but make sure you're close to the carcass, before it quickly regains interest)
Champsosaurus (This reptile is surprisingly a reliable source of food. It can only be found alive in the water, unless bugs. Often some dead carcasses are found washed on the coast of the rivers, and they provide a good amount of meat, even for an adult. Avoid them as hatchling and juveniles, they will kill you in few blows, but as a subadult and adult they are good prey. The secret is swimming to its back so that you are literally above it, and bite the animal frenetically until it dies. Because it is aquatic, the carcass will be floating in the water, so you have to make sure there are no crocs around)
Basilemys (This is also a pretty cool animal. Because it doesn't run away, you just need to have the painful patience (and hand muscles) to bite the turtle over and over and over until it collapses. Ate a lot of these turtles in every life stages. Good cure for hunger. Tip: its faster and easier to kill one with aim mode.)
Chamops (God bless... Didelphodon. The addition of slow-moving mammals that make Chamops obsolete. Not that I never catched one or two, a maximum of four-five in one gameplay, but they are too fast to be of any interest. If you're good in catching them up, they are quite of a favoured meal for hatchlings and juveniles. Hunt them if you don't have anything else to eat.)
Mosasaurus (This is the only animal I've seen just three times in the game, mostly because I am actually worried about surviving rather than dumbly explore the map. I once tried to fill all of my thirst to go explore the world of the beach, and see if I can find the Mosasaurus carcass, but the first time I did this, I gave up to find more inland food and freshwater. The second time I did that, the game crashed. The third time I decided to sacrifice myself and go to the open ocean. Its funny because you really need to go to the bottom of the map, and you'll see a splash in the distance and some water ripples approaching, right above the Mosasaurus. Unfortunetly, the Mosasaurus wasn't moving past the border of the map, and I didn't had the privilege of it killing me. The fourth and fifth time were successful in swimming to the open ocean and get killed by a Mosasaurus. I did it as an hatchling and as an adult)
Palaeosaniwa (Pretty animal, although quite dangerous. I died to this guy once in the unbuggy patch, that allowed these lizards to affect me with venom. I don't seem to be able to RPR the lizard, so I use the aim mode to bite the beast, but it often doesn't work. I do this as an adult and as a subadult, and it is quite of a good source of food, but it still makes damage, so its not on my main menu. Try running at it and bite it many times with aim mode, and avoid, at all costs, being bitten by one)
Didelphodon (God bless Didelphodon. As a hatchling, this dorky mammal is a preferred food item. It still runs and dodges you in a considerable way, but its generally easy to take down. As a baby Dakotaraptor, there is no best sensation to finish your hunt with the Didelphodon's death cries. Best Cretaceous lullabies. There's no shortage of age to kill these little snacks)
Lepisosteus (I don't bless Lepisosteus, even though it is undoubtelly a life-saver. It just isn't very fun to take one down, even as a hatchling, where everything you take down is a party. Lepisosteus, for a fish, is quite slow, even though the last patch made it two times faster than before, and for a water-breather stays a lot of time in the surface of the water. Fortunetly, it is fairly common, and as long as there are no crocs nearby, a quick swim to bite the fish and eat its guts won't harm anyone. One of the bummers is that often the Lepisosteus carcass floats far away from you to the other margin of the river. Bummer number 2, even though crocs are your predators they may come after the dead fish first, so you survive, but hungry. Bummer number 3, often you need quite of an aim to kill it and eat it. There is no life stage where fish are out of the menu. Often as an adult I eat some of these if I don't find an easy prey soon)
Hello, ladies and gents. I will be setting up a poll on which creatures should be playable for the considered Morrison Formation by the Saurian Dev Team. It is because the developers said that, after the Two Medicine (which is more of a possibility than the Morrison), if the developers receive a popular audience, they will do the Morrison Formation, a very well-studied formation with very popular dinosaurs in media.
Here's my opinion before the poll below.
Take a look at Hell Creek's playable fauna by Saurian. There is the T. rex, Triceratops, Dakotaraptor, and Pachycephalosaurus (this excludes the Bonus playable Ankylosaurus and Anzu, since they are there by popular choice). Notice that the main roster has one of a large carnivore, large herbivore, small herbivore, and small carnivore. I thought I would reflect it on this by putting it this way with my option of the main playable creatures for the Morrison Formation (if there is one, in fact).
Allosaurus (large carnivore)
Stegosaurus (large herbivore)
Coelurus (small carnivore)
Camptosaurus (small herbivore)
(Yes, if the reader is wondering which creatures I would pick for the bonus playables, it would be Ceratosaurus and Apatosaurus)
Which creature would you like to be playable? The six creatures with the highest vote will be shown to the Devs and they will see what will be considered.
(Note: The poll is small, due to the limitness of the device I am using)

Y'know, thx to the new rex we gone back in time
Since Alamosaurus is cut from the game, it's possible to see it again, if they add the Ojo Alamo Formation. Here are the dinosaurs/animals:

So the Morrison Formation is considered by the Saurian Team. Well, well, well. Here I set up a poll with more and better creatures. The original one is here. sauriangame.wikia.com/d/p/3100000000000000237
So which eight playable dinosaurs, four main dinosaurs, and eight bonus ones, do you want to be playable?
My creatures to be playable is this.
So, since the Saurian Team is considering the Morrison Formation, which animal do you think should be playable?

I know that the kickstarter campaign did not get to the Two Medicine Formation (so sad) but at least we will have character costumization, multiplayer, post-impact survival and environmental hazards (these last two are specially exciting). But the creators did not directly denied a Two Medicine Formation spin-off, and the idea is supposed to be fluttering the air. So, it's not dead.
They said they were going to introduce Gorgosaurus and Rubeosaurus (then Styracosaurus) as playable animals. But a full Two Medicine Formation should have more playable animals and here is a poll for these new creatures that could be playable. The four additional animals will be voted for this fictional and speculative game (yes, this is not official).

Since Dakotaraptor and other dromaeosaurs are very closely related to modern-day birds, they should have folded arms like that of a modern bird.
