The message said something like, "the time has come. They will know the true power of the sea." Its a teaser for a future update. The screenshot teaser is unrelated and might be something we sneak in to the current update, if we feel like we have time.
let me geuss... with paleo you mean more creatures and fossils like old plants, archeology=more structures and statues and things like that and with the time travel there is only one dimension? hey asdfgirl, i thought you said you and the f/a revival team wanted to keep everything pretty realistic... then why add only 1 dimension *;~;* ? ever heard of carboniforous, triassic, jurassic, createcous, pliocene or other cene-thingies...? and while i'm at it, why do you bother having utahraptor (by example) just cause you already have velociraptor and deinonychus? does that mean that you guys will stop when you have reached your main goals? will you not keep on expanding it? *;~;* i get you have your own live and stuff but you are going to make this mod even greater then it is or will be... right? please tell me that won't me the end... please... *;~;*
I can't give details on the updates yet. As for the single dimension though, if we were to actually create a dimension for each division of the history of time (of which we could end up with DOZENS UPON DOZENS), not only would it require a ton of work creating biomes suitable for each time period and adding enough mobs to fill those biomes and dinensions, but also it may cause a great deal of lag, something we don't want to do. Its much easier to let the already unrealistic TIME MACHINE take you to an "alternate reality" kind of Past where all prehistoric creatures thrived at once (I also think it would be pretty cool). As for your interpretation that our resistence fo adding similar mobs will lead to us quitting, don't worry. There are so many types of unique prehistoric creatures. On top of that, you know we don't put out updates quickly and that we don't add a lot of mobs at once. By the time we actually run out of material for the mod, you could have a kid.
