Changes to Jurassic Park Part One

 

Pteranodon's happy now!

Pteranodon’s happy now!

 

 

I was thinking of making some major changes to where my dinosaurs, sea animals, and ice age critters would be positioned. All for maximum effect. Jurassic Park Builder is divided into several sections:

1. Jurassic

2. Aquatic

3. Ice Age

I decided this time to focus specifically on the Jurassic zone. To be even more specific the plant-eaters. It was indeed a difficult decision to move them but I decided to do so anyway as I came to a certain conclusion seen below:

“Sonetimes one has to change the way they live, the way they eat, and the way they treat each other, you see the old way wasn’t working so its on us to do what we got to do to survive.”

I digress lol!!

Look at these pictures, they are such a far cry from how things were before? It did take quite some time to get things this way. It meant changing ideas and making adjustments on the fly. But it will certainly pay off quite literally. At least in the game that is.  wan

One of my strokes of genius was to remove the road I had that separated the carnivores from the plant eaters.

After all, its not like they were going to escape like in the actual movie.

Since I removed that troublesome road, I was now able to share the decorations and enhance the value of all as a result. That is when I came up with the idea for creating a cluster of dinosaurs. With added emphasis on those that are worth the most. Would help me to enhance my Jurassic Park Allstars even more.

I purchased several more “sleeping volcanoes” as they would boost things quite a bit. Also, I got more “Bridge over ponds”. Not exactly the “Bridges of Madison county but I think you get the drift, although I promise it won’t be in San Andreas”

Oh, how I quip!!!

Triceratops was upset with me because I moved him from his place that he had for so long, so did Gallimimus but they are in better places now so I will be forgiven sooner rather than later. Camarasaurus was moved too but he didn’t seem to really care all that much.

Ouranosaurus, Dryosaurus, and Pachyrhinosaurus were three I had no idea what to do with, so I stuck them on the other side of the park.

Whew what a lot of work, and it only cost me 3.5 million coins!

One thing that hasn’t changed though….

I still don’t have more levels!!!!

 

Jurassic Park Allstars Part One

Who made him angry?

Who made him angry?

 

Surely you know what its like when you play a game for a while and strategies start to come to your mind. I must say that that has happened to me with regards to Jurassic Park Builder. My brother teases me for still playing this game roughly a year after I got it. But you know what?

I really don’t care what people say. I’m gonna play it anyway!

I feel so much better for having said that by the way. It’s just how can you criticise me for playing this game when you play Lame Wing or whatever the name of that stupid game is anyway.

I digress

Another idea is that of putting valuable decorations around the most profitable dinosaurs, sea animals and animals of the Ice Age. These receive special emphasis and I will place them in different parts of there respective section whether Jurassic, Aquatic, or Ice Age.

 

You may be wondering why this post is called Jurassic Park Allstars. Well, its quite elementary Watson. You see, When I spoke above about strategies several came to my mind recently. For one, I am now obtaining dinosaurs that are only available from monetary purchase.

Another idea is that of putting valuable decorations around the most profitable dinosaurs, sea animals and animals of the Ice Age. These receive special emphasis and I will place them in different parts of there respective section whether Jurassic, Aquatic, or Glacier. These animals are Allstars because of how many coins they are worth each hour. I’ll show them to you in order 1,2,3.

1. Pteranodon. 21,545/hr 166% bonus maximum evolution.

 

Notice the T-Rex Fossils immediately around it and in turn the number of “sleeping volcanoes that around the fossils. The T-rex fossils give a bonus of 2% each. The sleeping volcanoes 10%. Parasaurolophus fossils are also 10% bonus but take up less space than the sleeping volcanoes but they are also quite a bit more expensive to obtain. “Bridge over ponds are 6% and are relatively cheap.

pteranodonallstar

When I started making the major changes to the park the Pteranodon was at 14,580/1 hr and 80% bonuses from decorations. You might also notice below the name of the animal the word max with all four stars. So it wont be evolving any more (in this case evolving is more like growing not gradually turning into something else. )

Baby what a big surprise!

2. Dilophosauris 9,584 per hour 77% bonushe just so happens to be near the Pteranodon.

3. Pachycephalosaurus 7,192 132% bonus. It helped to put a Active Volcano nearby.

I decided to give Triceratops an honorable mention since it gives 1,025 coins in 5 mins (the thing is, I am not normally able to collect the coins every five mins. It would give 12,300 coins in an hour in case your curious lol!!

Triceratops at 1,025/5 mins 105% bonus

Doing the math, this one while not exactly an Allstar in the Jurassic realm is nonetheless worth an honorable mention. The true Allstar of Jurrasic zone is:

Pteranodon

14,580/1 hr and 80% bonuses from decorations. You might also notice below the name of the animal the word max with all four stars. So it wont be evolving any more (in this case evolving is more like growing not gradually turning into something else. ) So the only way for it to become more valuable would be to add more decorations around it.

So Darwin stay back!

 

Suwannee’s Sturgeon~

Awesome

Just in case you don’t live in Florida and/or have never been to the beautiful and famous Suwannee River and seen this phenomenon in person, please take a look at one of the Youtube videos below.

It is an amazing and exciting spectacle to watch and see happen live.

This oddly beautiful fish looks and acts like few  others and seems almost mythical.

Each year about this time,  animals everywhere are in the mood for love and the Gulf Sturgeon are no exception to this Spring Ritual.

This annual trip each  year, from the warm waters of the Gulf,  North to the Suwannee River,  is  for this Sturgeon,  a return to their Ancestral home to spawn.

Once this is completed, they will return to the Gulf of Mexico for the remainder of the year.

There are,  of course,  signs to warn those new to the area, of…

Region’s conch, lobster trade under threat, say officials

Such a shame

Image

ROSEAU, Dominica (CMC) — The future of the Caribbean’s conch and lobster fisheries remains under threat despite regional efforts to protect it, regional fisheries officials said here yesterday.

The issue is at the top of the agenda of the 12th meeting of the Caribbean Fisheries Forum, the main technical and scientific decision-making body of the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM). The Belize-based agency coordinates the management of fisheries in the Caribbean Community (Caricom).

Acting Permanent Secretary in Dominica’s fisheries ministry, Harold Guiste, speaking at the start of the three-day meeting, highlighted efforts by the United States to declare conch an endangered species.

“It appears some countries are bent on wanting to exercise control over all the resources in the world,” despite regional systems in place to monitor the harvesting of the delicacies,” Guiste told delegates.

CRFM officials said the agency is concerned that since 2012, American environmental groups have called…
