* Precedents:
As you are fully aware there has been a Jurassic park themed mod around ofp and she managed to release a beta.
This was a stepping stone to really see if it was "possible" to have such a theme.
Some might be thinking "this is a combat simulator" and all the other malarkey you get, but thanks to the huge diversity and freedom we all have we can pick and choose what we want to do.

* Objectives:
Moving on, the old team from the JP mod for ofp is almost dead, only myself and Dracula still remain, and with that, we are working on our real project, the one thats always been about for the next gen engine due to its perfect engine, animal class, bump maps, Maya support.

We are one of many modifications that edit for the game "Armed Assault". However we are the only mod creating such a theme for the game.

We started out in September 2006 and have a fantastic development team of around 12 members.

We are creating our very own "artistic impressions" of our material such as dinosaurs, the story and locations. We use he films and books for inspiration to development our own theme and story which will be refreshing new and original.

I must add that we have not or do not plan to copy any material from the Jurassic park films or novels.

Now obviously we don't have a huge amount to show, as the tools are still unavailable but we have managed to get a few dinosaurs into the game engine to just really get a idea for the look. And i must say its going to look very tasty :)

We have managed to acquire 3rd party help and our animations will be done by a professional cgi animator, as well as other things.

So not a lot to show or tell at the moment, as its the same story with all mods, but i want to get her in the spotlight and raise some interest and hopefully get some fresh blood in the team!

There is a new mod witch is really incredible it is called lost world witch this mod's goal is to make an ecosystem with dinosaurs were the dinosaurs will eat,drink,hunt,do they're needs(you know),play,fight,defend,react to objects, etc... more detail on hunting: every carnivore will have its own hunting tac-tics such as stalking,ambushing, etc... more detail on defending: the herbivores will have they're own methods to escape they're enemies like confusing them, etc.. more detail on reacting with objects ex: if there is a log in front of the dinosaur it will jump over it or go next to it and the dinosaurs will have mind blowing AI,They started the mod in September 2006 and still don't have a site cause of they're host problem witch they fixed but for the moment they were kind to give us a page were they upload media here it is http://www.youtube.com/LostWorldMod (the t-rex run isn't run smiley just confused walk with run) and they have a paleanthologiste(i don't know how to spell that)to make sure that it is the most realistic as possible!!

Hi triangles, :welcome to armaholic
Thanks for posting this, it seems it wasnt yet in our WIP threads :thumb


Looks indeed very impressive. If they can really make all that work it will be some really great stuff to see.
I have been viewing pics and been looking at some videos of them earlier, however I did never know they wanted to make it all work like that.

Are you connected to the mod team? Just curious :wink

There isn't really a lot of new material to show atm. But I can provide you with a overview of the story and to any others who wish to read it :)

We have made significant changes since our original idea, and we feel we have developed a new and refreshing theme for the mod, which opens many new doors and ideas, where the film and books left off.

The idea we have, has been "inspired" by the films and books, but we have not, nor do we plan to copy anything directly or indirectly.

Here we are..



The incident at "Site A" two years ago had been a disaster for John Hammond and International Genetics Inc.The company was all but bankrupt as its European and Far Eastern investors one by one accepted their lossesand withdrew. The animals had been destroyed by the Costa rican army and, as bankruptcy proceedings and litigation dragged out to months then years, the company's facilities and equipment at "Site A" had been sequestered and allowed to become derelict. The remoteness of the location prevented casual visitors, and gradually the incident and the existence of "Site A" faded from the spotlight of publicity.


Only a wealthy Japanese consortium, named Idehama (logistics), one of the principal early investors in InGen, still supported Hammond.
Perhaps motivated by the possibility of access to the company's cutting edge biotechnology,
but still firmly behind the venture, although less conspicuously so after the downturn in the company's fortunes.

InGen and it's Japanese investors now have a plan to clandestinely visit "Site A" in an effort to retrieve materials and technology with a view to reviving InGen and its projects, but more importantly documenting the island, with a hope for possible life on the island. As a world famous bio technician you have been invited to join the first expedition to return to "Site A", with a small team of researchers and mercenary units. To collect information, and gather data, and then present your findings to ingen and idehama to allow them to "finalize" their future projects.

Since the disaster two years ago, the company's facilities were abandoned and the island has been left to natures devices for the last two years.
No-one knows what you may find there.

this could be a interesting addon. might be fun to use the editor and put in a m1a1 and use that against the t-rex or try to kill the one with the sail on it's back with a m-4spr. that would be a challenge. the dinos look good so far.
