|Two Allosaurus in a snowy valley.|
Allosaurus ('Al-owe-sore-uss', meaning "Strange/Different Lizard") is a large dinosaurian prehistoric creature from the Jurassic Period that was added into the Fossils & Archeology mod in the 6.4 Build. They are diurnal, meaning they are active only during the day, and are apex predators, meaning they use the special taming method. They can grow to be approximately 4 blocks tall, 10 blocks long, and 2 blocks wide. There is no size difference between males and females, but males have red crests and black facial markings. Newborns are tan and spotted, half a block tall, and are fully grown in 10 minecraft days. They, like the other large carnivores, cannot be given essence of chicken to grow faster.
Allosaurus, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various means. Having a low mood means it may attack or avoid you, having a high mood will make it neutral. The allosaurus requires a high mood to not attack the player on sight. Right-click it with a DinoPedia to see what its mood is at.
A fossil version of the allosaurus can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being an allosaurus.
Like almost all other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player through the culture vat. As they are dinosaurs, they hatch from large eggs that need to be warmed by any light source.
Due to its high aggression, fast movement, and large size, the allosaurus can be very difficult to restrain. It can destroy blocks weaker than iron and will hunt down a large number of mobs, which can and will make them frequent wallbreakers. They cannot be tamed until adulthood (see below). It will automatically attack and eat the following mobs when hungry or at a poor mood: all vanilla animals, alligator gar, ankylosaurus, ceratosaurus, coelacanth, compsognathus, confuciusornis, deinonychus, dilophosaurus, dodo, dryosaurus, gallimimus, gastornis, henodus, ichthyosaurus, nautilus, pachycephalosaurus, plesiosaurus, pteranodon, quagga, sturgeon, titanis, triceratops, and velociraptor. They will target baby animals of all species as well. They will also kill hostile vanilla mobs, but will not eat rotten flesh. They also can ride minecarts.
Baby allosaurs are vulnerable when left alone to most other carnivores, but the only mobs that will hunt the adults are the tyrannosaurus, spinosaurus, mosasaurus(if the allosaur is in the water), and sarcosuchus.
Allosaurus will interact with scratching posts, tethered logs, and will chase toy balls, bringing up their mood significantly. They are diurnal, meaning they are active during the day and will sleep at night.
Adult allosaurs can breed and lay eggs every five minutes as if there is a male and female present. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.
Allosaurus is considered one of the six apex predators that uses the special taming method. The allosaurus must be fully-grown to be tamed. To tame one, the player must attack the allosaurus until it is at 8 hp (4 hearts; this is easy to check with a DinoPedia). After the fight is won, they will then enter "sleep mode" and lie down. While it is asleep, the player must right click it with the scarab gem. It will then rise back up and regain all of its health, signifying that it has been tamed. After being tamed, the player gains the achievement "The...Squire?" (a reference to the achievement "The King!" when a tyrannosaurus is tamed), and they can be ordered with a normal bone. A tutorial to this process can be found here.
RIDINGEditTamed allosaurus' are rideable as adults. They can be ridden by right-clicking on one with a whip When ridden, they won't go hungry or age, and they cannot break blocks. It can be controlled only if the player constantly holds the whip, and can only be controlled for a short time without it. Riding uses the same WASD format as normal Minecraft movement, and shift to dismount.
Allosaurus is self-sufficient and will hunt prey on its own, or use nearby feeders with meat in them. They will also eat dropped food or, when tamed, can be hand-fed any kind of meat (excluding rotten flesh). They will seek out all of the aforementioned mobs.
