A message to the Fossils Archeology Revival Community:
My fellow Paleontologists and Archaeologists,
As many of you know, we’ve recently added a few new team members! Specifically we’ve added a new Programmer and a new Sound Designer. With new talent comes new features, plus a major restructuring! We’ve been working diligently to come up with the most efficient ways to get new content out to you, as well as listening to what features you’d like to see. So we’ll be making a few major updates to Fossils Archeology Revival, which we’d like to share some details with you now.
We’ve decided to separate our features into four content updates, The Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, and K-Pg Extinction Event Updates. So without further ado, let’s discuss the four major updates planned for Fossils Archeology Revival:
Triassic (For the near future):
- New Dino SFX and Music
- Archeology Ruins To Explore
- Artifact Collecting and Treasure Hunting
- New AI System (including Flying AI)
- Ancient Writings
Jurassic (Time Machine Update):
- New Realm (The Past) with Unique Biomes
- New Music and SFX
- Dinosaur Herds
- Unique Dinos only found in The Past
Cretaceous (Ancient Civilization Update):
- Ruined civilizations to be excavated
- Cities in past eras
- Skin Pack Compatibility
K-Pg Extinction Event (??? Update):
We’ve got three more things we’d like to discuss:
First off, although we have tons of new features we’ll be rolling out, we will be prioritizing stable updates. After that, in order to stay current with the most up-to-date versions of Minecraft, version compatibility will come next. We know many of you have been patiently waiting for 1.6, but due to restructuring, work has been coming along slowly, and we’d like to apologize for that. Rest assured, we are working on it, and a stable build on 1.6 is our number one priority at the moment.
Secondly, we’d like to acknowledge an unreleased mod which made some waves on this thread. We would enjoy seeing another dinosaur mod based off Flammarilva’s original design. We have a vision of where we’re heading with F/A Revival and it’s cool to see where others go with the original mod. Releasing a mod is a massive undertaking which not many can successfully do, so we wish them the best of luck. We ask though, that you keep the conversation on this and other threads on track and on topic. Thanks for being so understanding!
Lastly, we will always welcome your ideas regarding new features, dinosaurs, and archeology gameplay. We love that we have such a vocal community, and we’re eager to get your feedback on the mod and these updates. So please, by all means, suggest something or critique our ideas!
If you’ve read this far, thanks for reading the (long) update plans! Just a few more reminders left:
- Make sure to report any bugs you might encounter (https://github.com/4...cheology/issues)
- Go follow us on Twitter! @FossilsRevival
- Check out the F/A mod server (fossils.noip.us:25865)
- Most importantly, go have fun, and dig up some fossils!
