In the ongoing adventure of making our mod as scientifically accurate as we can within the realm of Minecraft, we have of course realized that some of our current models are not up to standards. This means that in the future, we will be redoing many of our current models in addition to unveiling new mobs. This space will be used for sharing model revisions as we reveal them.
Dromeosaur king Raptorfarian revisited his beloved Velo and Deino recently, giving them some much needed edits. The differences are small, but really improve the anatomy of the animals. You can see comparisons between the old and new models below, along with growth stages. The biggest changes are in head shape, neck positioning, and wing configuration.
Also, the scaly t…

Hi everyone! In case you didn't know, my name is ASDFGirl and I'm a dev for F/A. I do models and textures, writing and lore, and most obviously, public outreach. Most of the time, when you comment on the Twitter, MC forums, Discord, or here, on the wiki, I'm the one who responds. (I get a lot of messages in a day, so take it easy on me!)
I know most of you have already been following our updates, so you'll already know most of this. I'm rewriting everything nicer and neater here so I can link it to places like Twitter.
Our short-term update plans involve adding a great deal of Paleozoic plants and animals in order to fulfill our partnership with the Brymbo Fossil Forest Project. We are super excited about and grateful for this opportunity t…

Okay so I know I said that I would be getting wiki pages done this past month. And I also am aware that I have touched approximately 0 of them. But I have an excuse, fam. Actually, several.
First, my birthday came and went, and to celebrate I had some friends sleep over a few days and then slept over their house for a few days after New Years. So in order to be a good host and then house guest, I stayed off my laptop and got 0 things done here. Thankfully, nothing was really happening on here anyway so I'm sure no one was really bothered by my absence.
Second, I have fallen ill. I've been visited by the worst cold I've ever had and it's friend the ear infection. I've been spending my days cocooned in bed, several feet away from my laptop. I…Read more >
Hello boys and girls,
Today I had the brilliant idea of actually writing out some of our wiki's rules. Long overdue, I know. Anyway, I worked them into the Help:Community Guidelines. Please go check them out!
Having our rules written out like this means a couple things for us like a community. First, when any of you see someone breaking one of the rules, you can kindly direct them to the guidelines so they can read them themselves. People can't follow rules that they don't know about! This also means that you routinely active users might see me acting more strict with you guys. Nothing personal, but I really want to create a warmer community here, and I can't think of a single one of us (myself included) who isn't guilty of harshing the mel…Read more >
So, yesterday I was hanging out with some new friends at a Mario Kart party at my dorm while wearing my dinosaur onesie and carrying around my stuffed stegosaurus named Wiki (yes, lovingly named after this website). Wiki and I were talking to these two freshmen about dinosaurs, cryptids, Pokemon etc. You know, all the cool stuff that the judgemental people eating pizza in the corner wouldn't care about.
When the conversation turned to the new Pokemon 'Oricorio', the freshman girl mentioned how much she liked the sensu Oricorio that danced with geisha-like fans because it reminded her of ancient Japanese war fans. She went on to talk about how much she liked learning about the culture and stuff. So, I decided to shamelessly plug the mod int…
