    I couldnt quite remember, but I would expect being in water would help it a lot with standing up more.

    I was talking about it on the land. Water can't support the dinosaur if it is not in the water.

    I'm pretty sure its accurate at this point, it wasnt fully quadruped but rather it had a stance like iguanadontids and hadrosaurids, but due to its size it stayed mainly in the water to support its weight better. I would wager in water it would be fully bipedal while on land it would walk on all fours.


    Actually, the current theories are that it was fully bipedal, but it was either the Pelican Stance or the Pangolian Stance.

    Apparently the universal power converter doesn't want to play nice with Galacticraft wires. I've tried both sides of the converter and both types of wire and they don't seem to want to connect.


    Do I have to do anything on my end?

    yeah the permian was so bad it was the only mass extinction of insect life, and insects are hard to take down due to how much they reproduce. It was the result of a tremendous volcanic eruption that originated in siberea and is basically why the Ring of Fire even exists if I'm not mistaken.

    The Ring of Fire is actually the region bordering the Pacific Ocean, completely unrelated to the Permian Extnction.

    Actually I have just read the article, it wasn't much of an eruption considering that it ended up spreading beneath the surface where it ended up igniting large coal deposits that released tones of Methane, Carbon Dioxide, and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, so much gases were released in fact that caused the suffocation of most life on the surface and acidified the Oceans significantly.

    Not much of an eruption?! Not much of an Eruption!? I would say that turning the entirety of Siberia into an active Volcano is a pretty massive eruption.

    Another species of that thing? I hope not. A question concerning them both. Which was the largest one? Everyone says differently and it seems to be a matter of opinion rather than objective facts.

    It seems my information was slightly out of date.

    Basically, originally, the both Quetz and Hatzegoptrix were much more similar to each other than they were to any of the other members of Azhdarchidae, leading to paleontologists believing they might be one in the same (After all, we believe Quetz could have crossed the oceans due to its size and speed and flight time) but apparently the neck and jaw of Hatzegoptrix are different enough from the Quetz skull specimen we do have that they are still seperate.

    That was my very first question on this mod page and nope was the answer. Personally I like Hatzegopteryx better since its not nearly as over hyped on the internet as the Quetz. However Ill be happy with any pterosaur as long as it is ridable and looks as good as they do in this mod.

    Hategopteryx might just be another species of Quetz, so....

    David is known for his flowery, overly-extravagant language, and he probably just means Daniels will be the new "doner" for test subjects (taking her eggs). Also Ridley said he's totally ignoring the later films and only building up to the original, which means no queens/hives.

    Another thing Ridley said is he wants to gradually re-introduce Giger's aesthetic, and Giger didn't make the queen or had any input in anything related to Aliens/hives/queens. Giger's idea on how the eggs were made was by a large, globular machine attached to a wall, no central Trex-triceratops-termite. But I would love to see Giger's concept be re-introduced into the series, since personally I feel queens/hiveminds/etc are heavily overdone nowadays, almost every single space-based franchise has one, whereas Giger's idea was truly unnerving and much more efficient, and actually felt well, alien. It also seems like something a synthetic would decide to make-a machine that produces the products, much like how David himself was made.

    Also its just best to take all bonus material with a grain of salt, as the Prometheus bluray mentioned the derelict on Lv-426 and Tyrell corp from Blade Runner. The bonus material is almost always just fan service and should not be assumed as canon unless an actual movie refers to it.


    I understand your point, but there is another factor involved. For all we know, Fox could have forced Ridley into a corner. Something like "Either have a Queen in your next film or we are never going to greenlight another Alien film from you. We'll finish these prequals without you. Maybe give the last one to the guy who was supposed to make an Alien 5."

    However, your explanation doesn't make much sense when you consider the fact that he doesn't say​ that Shaw was his Queen. Since it's pretty obvious that Shaw was the "doner" for the first eggs, why would he say that Shaw was supposed to be his Queen, but ended up not being it?

    I take anything with a grain of salt unless confirmed by the person in charge, which in this case would be either Fox or Ridley, though I question the latter's state of mind at the moment.

    Well, I heard something interesting.


    Supposedly, on the soon-to-be released Alien: Covenant DvD there is a little feature that is basically David contacting the recently merged Wayland Yutani company.


    In it, it supposedly has David talking about the Protomorph and started talking about it's biology, how it has a Hivemind and how he needs someone to direct the Hivemind and how they need a means of reproduction.


    He refers to this individual as "His Queen" and how Shaw wasn't able to be his Queen, but implies that Daniels might be.

    Yep. Also trilobites will be "breedable", as in if you breed an animal infected by goo before it turns, it will produce a baby trilobite instead of the normal offspring.

    On top of that, both the deacon and adult trilobite got a makeover, and a model/texture for the baby has been made


    And yes, before you ask I do plan on making an adult deacon, inspired by the concept art seen in Fire and Stone

    Hype has reached FTL speeds.

    I don't remember hearing about this, but will the Trilobite gain the ability to impregnate mobs with a Deacon, similar to a Facehugger?

    If they retcon the Hive and the Queen, then regardless of what fox thinks, it will be non canon to the fans. The Queen and the Hive has been in alot of media related to Alien. Aliens was a massive success in the box office, much more so than prometheus and alien covenant, because it showed that the Alien franchise was flexible in the terms that it could be a high action packed film, and a horror sci-fi film. The alien franchise needs to be that flexible, and having new ideas for the way that the Xenomorph could be used was great. Its kind of why Alien3 failed, it was pratically Alien but with criminals and the Alien came from a dog/ox. The Queen was hyped up for Aliens, and it was a great addition to the lore of the Alien franchise, as it finished the reproductive cycle of the Xenomorph. (Yes eggmorphing exists but that exists in deleted scenes and books, both of which are non canon. Yeah, the idea of eggmorphing is still a good idea)
    Also, I doubt Ridley Scott would get rid of the Queen, maybe it won't be included in his sequels, but as Ender_Dwarf said, it would anger a lot more fans than please the few who want it removed.
    I dont mind if he doesnt include it, that would be alright, just dont remove it.




    That is very true, Ridley Scott is slowly beginning to ruin his own movies. Also, i do think we as fans are giving Ridley a bit too much credit for Alien, so we shouldnt really follow all of his films. It was Giger and Dan O'Bannon who were the main creators of the Alien. Dan O'Bannon designed the life cycle of the Alien, while Giger helped design the original concepts of the Alien.

    I would rather prefer Blomkamp's film, rather than another prequel sequel. He seemed to have some new ideas, and was probably going to introduce eggmorphing, aswell as some other interesting concepts.

    However, lets let covenant go for a while, since The Predator is coming out soon, what are your guys thoughts on the alleged hybrid predator? Or that Predators could end up working with Humans?


    Personally, I'm not against the idea of a Predator working with humans. A "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" sort of deal. In this case, this alleged hybrid predator would be the enemy of both humanity and the Predators.

    This could be the first real example of Yaujta Honor in the films, since a majority of it comes from the expanded universe.

    I am more worried how it has been implied that the AvP films are canon to the Predator franchise. Has this been cleared up at all?

    Also most general viewers won't care too much about the lore behind the series. They will just want to see a cool movie and not get too in-depth in the lore, so to them knowing the real creation of the xenomorphs doesn't matter.

    I honestly like how Daniels was in covenant. She felt like a real person forced into this terrifying situation, not some generic "natural born badass" like the later Ripleys. Only the the Alien Ripley, the original, felt like a real person. As for David overpowering her, Daniels was just a colonist, not a trained fighter, which presumably Ripley is due to her being a warrant officer, meaning she probably had some previous military experience.

    Also the queen is hardly feminine. If anything, it looks more masculine than the normal adults, with its huge upper body, tiny stomach/hips area, etc. Also it doesn't really looks like a member of the same species, more like a designed inspired by the original, like how parodies do it. The original is more feminine since it was deliberately designed as being both male and female, mixing the anatomy of both genders to blur the lines and evoke uncertainty, whereas the queen looks more like a general monster they tried to make look feminine by giving it high heels. These creatures do not need any form of superior, being able to function perfectly on their own. What makes them threatening is how deadly just one can be. Also giving them a "mother" humanized them too much and makes them less this cold, otherworldly nightmare they were originally envisioned to be. Not to mention queens don't even fit in this quasi-rebooted series.
    Xenomorphs are the perfect anti-life force, with only one desire-rend the life from a planet like a lovecraftian nuke. Not to be glorified termites.

    I know this will be controversial, but I would be perfectly fine if the entire queen and hive concept was retconned. Its no longer unique and its pretty common nowadays. Hell, even the new Independence Day movie had a hive dynamic! Its just no longer fresh or interesting. Not to mention Cameron himself who designed the queen no longer cares about the series, since he really only wants to focus on a series that is totally his, Avatar. So he probably won't care too much if the queen/hive is removed.

    Also, why don't you join the AvP Discord? Its a better medium to discuss this than on the forums.

    I would greatly mind if the Hive and Queen was retconned. It causes far too many issues with the canon continuity of the series than would be worth it.

    Basically, only Prometheus, Alien Covenant and Alien would be canon, and I don't know about you, but that would **** off a lot of people.

    Anyway, it's a moot issue since I doubt Fox is going to ruin the semi-coherent story they have constructed with the films since they decide what is Canon.

    Yes. "Sneaks" in.
