    And one other thing of you say it’s like Saurian. That’s like saying Saurian copied the isle

  • Phantom
    Phantom 2 months ago

    It’s not a copy of Saurian. It’s has elements that are different. 1- it has RPG style in game: gain experience and upgrade your stamina and hunger...etc. 2- it’s going to have a free Mode were you’ll get to play all the creatures in game expect fish and reptiles 3- I look forward to this game

    I wouldn't want to play this game, mostly because the tyrannosaurus is SO slow.
    Hey, I've got The Isle, guys. Personally, I don't need any saurian knockoff with some dumb generic mobile game title, "Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Survivors". Really, the name is the only thing that bothers me and that I have against.
    Other than how bloody slow the tyrannosaurus is.

  • Achillotyrannus
    Achillotyrannus 4 months ago

    Basically if roblox dinosaur simulator was just better from the start, and I roblox era of terror had AI dinosaurs. That's what I see. But I think if steam was working for me I would get this game due to how it pays attention to those little details never explored in other games. Like the toxicity of carcasses, the population of animals in the region, and how AI herbivores that are either passive, or run away(comparison to roblox dinosaur simulator since npc's just attack you even if you are just passing by, as well as maiasaura npc's having a very broken hitbox where you can only bite them on there upper body portion which is where it can attack, being it headbutts at a suprising cooldown rate.) However the only problem I have with the game is that 1: the t.rex seems really slow. 2: the lack of flexibility in the dinosaurs. For example, a triceratops's specialized neck bone is sometimes reffered to as " the closest thing to a perfected sphere in nature" but bestinslot managed to kill it easily. At one point he got very close to the trike's head yet it could get him. If that happened in real life bestinslot's rex would have been impaled before it made the kill. Also the rex is really slow even though it does catch up to the chilesaurus, the chase seems a lot slower than it would be in real life, in which the t.rex would likely outrun it's prey since it was adapted to chasing it. Then again just my own opinion, don't want to make this the patch note of the game. It's just my opinion and all in all I think with a little support this game could succeed.

  • Jonathan Derryl
    Jonathan Derryl 4 months ago +6

    The environment alone looks much better than the brown sandy terrain of Saurian (with it being scientifically accurate to the Hell Creek during the Cretaceous)...
    With that said, I doubt the developers of this game bring even half as much as scientific rigour the Saurian devs put into their game.
    Always great to have more dinosaur games though!

    This game doesn't seem unique enough to survive. It could potentially make it as a niche game if they expand the RPG elements further.

    • AlphaCommander 42
      AlphaCommander 42 4 months ago

      Perternurdurn wat? even primal carnage and dino d-day are still played. it will survive as long as updates are there. the archotek project has unfortunately a rough time because the main or sole dev moved. but people still play the isle even if its pretry often just a call of duty massacre with dinos.

      Naw, Primal Life (Now called Era Of Terror) Is so pretty much the isle, but with slightly less realistic dinosaurs.
      Seriously, they look GOOD. So that's like saying Saurian and The Isle had a kid, the two dinosaur games that have AMAAAZING graphics and animations, had a kid, and it was this. That would mean that this game would have to have better graphics and animation than both of those. It's the opposite.

    • Godzilla

    Not buying this right now as it looks just a bit too basic for my liking currently (Early Access is a bitch like that), but I'm definitely gonna keep it on my radar. Just added it to my wishlist so I'm looking forward to this potentially becoming a competitor to Saurian. Also, more dinosaur games is always nice.

    You are a very slow _Tyrannosaurus rex_ baby... It's thought that they were a lot faster than their adult counterparts and many other animals. You should be the fastest creature in this game.
    Ah, well. This game isn't exactly striving for the best accuracy, so I shouldn't be nitpicking too much. (Still, though.)
    Edit: Wait, it says this on this game's _Steam_ page:
    "The creatures of _Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Survivors_ are modeled based on real-world findings, giving them a sense of realism while also adding educational value to the game."
    If that's the case, why are there dinosaurs from different time periods living alongside each other in this game? Why does the _Utahraptor_ look not much like it's thought to have looked? Why are the animals' speeds incorrect? Why--
    Okay, I give up.

    • A Peridot
      A Peridot 3 months ago +1

      That is true. That doesn't explain, however, the plants and dinosaurs living together from different time periods, or some of the animal designs. Things such as incorrect speeds I'll accept as a product of early access. Life from different eras living alongside each other, on the other hand? That's a different story. It's just extra animating for aspects that aren't supposed to be in the game based on the developers' vision: a _realistic_ dinosaur simulator.

    BestInSlot, did you read _Saurian_'s newest development log? They're planning on reworking the artificial intelligence system so that animal interactions are more realistic and unpredictable. This is what Henry, one of the game's programmers, said in his section of the log (I made some grammar edits, so that's why it looks a little different from the original if you noticed; I don't think I fixed everything, though (I'm a grammar freak)):

    "In the mad rush to program many different aspects of _Saurian_, my work on A. I. behavior has largely ended up falling to the side. No more! After taking a short sanity break, I'm back to the grindstone and focusing on A. I. again. I'm about to get a lil' nerdy, so for those of you who want the TL;DR: A. I. behavior logic is being largely overhauled with the hope of producing more natural and flexible reactions from all creatures. For those of you who want to get nerdy with me, keep on reading!
    Saurian's A. I. uses Apex's wonderful Utility A. I. asset--though at the moment not to its full potential. Utility A. I. isn't just a flexible asset, but also a relatively unique approach to behavioral architecture. At the moment, the way Saurian's A. I. is designed much more closely resembles traditional behavior trees than true Utility A. I. as envisioned by Apex. The difference between the two, in simplified terms: Behavior trees select behaviors by evaluating boolean conditionals (ex.: "If I'm hungry and if I see an animal under 1.25x my weight, then I hunt it, otherwise choosing another behavior).
    Utility A. I., on the other hand, uses numerical scores assigned to perceived stimuli to choose behaviors (ex.: I could assign a score to being hungry, and a score to an animal as prey based on its mass, then multiply them together and compare to other behavior scores, choosing whichever behavior has the highest score). The advantage of Utility A. I. is that, hypothetically, A. I. behavior selections are much more robust in unpredicted situations in a way that they might not be with behavior trees.
    While it may seem like a subtle difference, it has a potentially huge impact on the way behaviors are designed. Rather than thinking of well-defined combinations of conditions that result in specific behaviors, behavior selection has to be thought of in terms of numerical functions--which is significantly harder to intuitively design the same way (hence the use of behavior-tree-like design up until now). To help with this task, I've written up a crude little tool in Python to help visualize the animal behavior graphs for my first passes at the new scoring functions. [...]
    In addition to giving _Saurian_'s NPCs better behavioral responses, I will be using the opportunity to both optimize the A. I.'s CPU usage using Unity 2018's new job system (potentially allowing for more A. I. on screen) and to refactor the A. I. with multiplayer in mind. Exciting times ahead!"
