Maybe I've just never run into these guys, but that seems unlikely to me. Anyway, I've never seen the following in game:
-Cinder Hog-Sand Ripper-Ramora-Impaler-Cave Creeper-Cephaladon-Frost Raptor-Cryosaur-Mangler-Magma Worm-Lava Strider
I think there's a few more, but those are the ones I noted from the app. A lot of these guys are really cool/creepy and I'm not sure why they would appear in the app, but not be in the game. I'd love to see them. Several of them are in the artbook as well.
Has anyone seen any of these? Can you think of anymore that are absent? Does anyone have any info as to why they're not in the game?
Upcoming maps for different parts of shear.
We haven't had "fire" or "frost" zones, right now we have jungle, and poison.
Some of the wildlife in the app are concepts for wildlife that didnt make it into the full game
Is that a theory or something you have some official word on?
Edit: We have ice, acid, forest and desert. Just like the four zones in the app. In the artbook, acid appears to be called "volcanic" for some reason.
Theory, but they are basing the design and wildlife on biomes so it's completely possible to show up when they introduce a new biome.
@quirklu is right, those wildlife are concepts that couldn't make it into the full game for different reasons
A few of them are shown in the development f evolve thread, along with why they were cancelled
Actually the app splits it into Forest, Ice and acid Biomes. All of which are present in the game
Doesn't mean those are the only biomes possible. I would love to see a lava biome.
And sorry for wrong names, I was just going off the top of my head with bad memory.
They had lava before, but it wasn't very fun, so they didn't include it
All those were in the game, but they were scrapped for various reasons. So why waste concepts when you can stick them into something else for free?
There's snow (distillery, technically aviary), desert, forest & acid map in both games. But to the OP's question, the app has a lot of wildlife that was designed during development but never implemented for various reasons.
which maps have this "desert" biome you speak of?
Also: there should totally be a "dessert" biome
The art book had an entire desert map in it that got scrapped alongside that sand rhino from the app.
Wow, lots of info in that thread and I've never seen it before. Thanks for the link.
Just seems strange that they would scrap so many animals. I could see a few not working, but the list is quite long. For me, putting them in the app just makes me wanna be able to interact with them in the game. More variety in the wildlife would be great. I love that there are certain creatures that only exist in certain biomes.
We do have frost maps. Aviary is partially and distillery has snow if I remember correctly
I guess I'm envisioning glacial rather than just snowy.
putting more animals in the game would be interesting in so many ways. im a bit of a biology nerd, so when I saw all of the animals in the app I immediately thought hey, if they included all of the animals in the app in the game, they would have a thriving ecosystem! It wouldn't be hard to make. just copy the reaver AI into the ice lurkers and dune wolves, establish who eats who, and your done! the wildlife perk system might get messed up, but there's an easy fix: simply give the same perks to similar animals. this would also allow for perks to be had in maps where those animals might not be found. for example: give the armor regen perks to the ice lurkers and dune wolves, similarly to the speed perk that can be found on canyon striders and marsh striders. also, in maps where tyrants might not be found, put a health regen perk on the sand rippers. also, I think with all the lava themed wildlife and behemoth coming out soon they're hinting at a lava themed map, similar to the acid maps.
Did someone reach max lvl for Hunters and got the unique emblem?
That would be interesting. Also, a can of ancient ruins map would be cool although I don't think they will make it
