Not really a new idea when you take a look at it from a Minecraft mod standpoint, and ARK. I guess even originally the Jurassic Park movie also from the 90's. I wanted to suggest adding fossils into the game, once everything is done of course, for us to mess around with fossils. To collect, to sculpt, and to possibly even bring back to life. Yes, I'm going there.
I believe it would be interesting to occasionally dig up fossils from various biomes around the RW realm to use as museum pieces, even to tediously bring back to life only through dungeon loot & modern era technology. It be interesting to make a zoo, a Jurassic island, and etc...The typical silliness, with us actually learning from our mistakes this time.
Why? To ride them as mounts, as an Easteregg type thing, to add small features onto the many, and to extend the fun of Rising World in the late-game. Looking at both the Minecraft mod & the ARK game has me being highly interested in them. I wouldn't hold it against Red if he said no while leaving it to mods. This is just something to add onto the fun of things while still making them quite 'rare' and exotic. Something that would hurt when you lose these dinos, or something to display next to the custom statues I tried suggesting to Red51.
The fun of it all coming across random digging to then unearth fossils when mining for ore to then display, to extract DNA from them when you're high tech enough, and to raise them from an egg from a baby stage to their adult stage. When they die, they die and you have to restart the process...I guess 'cloning' them back into existence while keeping them rare.
- Skeleton displays (Animal Crossing: New Leaf style & Pixelmon mod vibe)
- To bring back to life (Pixelmon, Minecraft dinosaur mod, & ARK)
- To add extra little fun on the side during the late game for modern age and at the very top of the 'end game' content (ARK & Pixelmon mod vibe)
- Still very rare that losing a living dinosaur would hurt, yet you can still hunt with them, raise them, and explore with them when you run the fossil DNA through a computer.
I guess it's more of a mod thing.
