Realism in the Resurrection of Extinct Animals
A new Prehistoric Resurrection mod on the block, LaramidiaCraft (named after the Cretaceous Continent that is now Western North America) strives for a realistic approach to the formula of resurrecting extinct organisms back from the dead and to depict our prehistoric animals in a style that both fits minecraft and reflects what we know of these animals with a bit of speculative reconstruction thrown into the mix.
THE BEGINNING STEPS
The Beginnings of LaramidiaCraft start with Fossils that you can find underground. they come in three types: Cenozoic, Fossils you'll find closest to the surface; Mesozoic, Fossils you'll find deeper underground, and Paleozoic, Fossils that can be found in the deepest parts of the underground. From these fossils rocks, you might find some fossils of varying degrees of condition: Pristine, Broken, and Shattered. These different preservation conditions are what determines the viability of the fossil in the resurrection process.
WHAT TO DO WITH FOSSILS
The fossils that you find are unidentified, and must be identified by looking at them very carefully at an analysis table, the better the fossils condition, the faster the process will go. Once you have your analyzed fossil, you can bring it over to the state of the art Life From Scratch (LFS) system. The LFS system will further analyze the fossils you give it into data that the machine can use. The different conditions of fossils also determine how much data the LFS can get out of the fossil. A full usable Genome will require at best a handful of Pristine fossils and at worst a large amount of shattered remains
With a Genome fully sequenced, you will then require a Biotank and a Bioprinter connected to the LFS system. Placing raw organic matter into the Biotank will give a store of Amino Acids that the Bioprinter can use to print the egg or embryo that was selected for manufacturing in the LFS system. After the new lifeform is printed, eggs can be placed in suitable environments and wait to be hatched, Mammals on the other hand must go through and Artificial Womb to develop, the Mammal embryo, once placed in the Artificial Womb, will gestate until it its ready to be born into a new world.
THE BARE BONES RELEASE (0.0.3)
The bare Bones Release is just a small taste of how Fossils are going to function. With a total of three blocks and one item, it's no wonder that this Pre-Alpha is called "Bare Bones"
Planned Mobs For Initial Alpha Release (There will be more in the future)
0.0.3 Bare Bones release for 1.10.2 (Requires Forge 1.10.2 - 188.8.131.522) Download

We are looking for Help, Mainly looking for Coders that are much more experienced than I, since I had to use the MCreator API to even make this Pre-Alpha, We are looking for those who are well versed with Mobs and Machine type coding, since they are the biggest parts of the Mod. We are also looking for Modelers and Texture designers to lighten the load off of our backs, provided you can match the style and accuracy that we strive for with LaramidiaCraft.
