Hey, thanks for testing that stuff out for me and i do like your avatar did u make it yourself?
On topic: I have an idea to controll breeding.
#1. U know how after sheep breed they cant be bread after that for a wile? Well do that for rapters but Extended.. like a 2 day wait b4 they are able to mate again. Also when they are ready to mate the "hearts" particals fly around like normal minecraft animals.(The oldest rapter in the group is still the Alpha)
#2. Rapters go into "heat" at random times. Two rapters have to be in love before mating can happen. This would also reduce breeding.
#3. another way to keep population down is to have a rapter with the atribute of "Alpha" applied to 15% of babie rapters. when it grows up it will split from herd, possibly taking some followers with it, then the diffrent packs will(when they cross paths) fight each other. keeping the population down.

Just thought of some more mechanics to Pack fighting:
#4. When one of the alpha's health is low the loosing pack will flee (sprinting to get away) loosing pack follows
#5. The winning pack will chase the loosers a certen distance from their territory than return to their home.
#6. If all of the pack(excluding alpha) is killed than the looser alpha becomes a follower of the winner.
#7. Alpha's have head feathers to distinguish them from other rapters.
#8. The alpha that splits from your herd will be wild.
#9. In order to create another alpha loyal to you, you must hatch a new rapter out side of the territory of any pack you own. additionally all of your packs wont fight each other.
Well thanks for suggestion.
But the group fight between same spices will be misunderstood as :"Hey!why me raptors killing each other?"
But the rest are good suggestions.Thank you.
Would it be possible when an new alpha raptor spawns having some text be displayed that read something along the line of " a new alpha raptor has spawned, this could mean trouble if i don't take care of it." And when the alpha raptor attacks or runs off, having some more text appear that describes what is going on. This would be one way of over coming people's tendency not to read the nuts and bolts of a mod. I know the Aether mod did something like this- when you attacked a boss, that could only be killed by a pick ax, with another weapon it caused some text to appear that told you what to do.

What ever happened to the archaeology part of this mod? It seems like all of the recent updates and the fan support have been directed towards the dinosaur part of the mod. Is the archaeology part of the mod just going to be left as is or is it going to be developed further? If it is going to be developed further I think it should be better blended into the fossil part of the mod, because right now it just seemed stapled on to a mod about dinos.
I am sorry if that came off as rude, I did not meant it that way at all. I should edited myself better there.
