The pumpkins shown 2 pictures back have been updated to version 2 with a new color which makes them easier to see with torchlight.
Back in the stone age pumpkins were not the traditional round orange upright fruit we think of today when you hear the word pumpkin and were different looking way back then.
I completed work on the new look for the pig which is now at version 2.
Improved the details around the eyes and the matted fur is now a higher resolution than it was in version 1.
So why is the pig no longer pink?
Humans began raising sheep, pigs, goats and cows for food around 10,000 years ago which changed the way these domesticated animals appeared and the thousands of years of breeding has resulted in todays domesticated animals being far different from what the looked like a million years ago.
Therefore the sheep, pigs, goats, chickens,etc are different in this mod to how they look in 2017 and this also applies to the wild animals who have also changed appearance over the years.
Version 2 of the domestic pig is now showing in the prior post with an updated picture.
`Very early look at the sabre tooth tiger................
I had been wondering through the savanna during the day and night had just fallen when I heard the sound of a big cat.
Then I saw it in the long grass ahead of me...... a sabre tooth tiger.
And it had just killed another big cat.... first time in Rising World where I have seen one predator kill another.
Have completed about 50% of the first stage of creating the sabre-tooth and the next step is to do an initial test in the game to check how the texture appears in the mod.
My experience with modding is to constantly test throughout the modding process to check the progress and fix any issues which develop. Creating the sabre-tooth is a fairly complex task so I am doing it small steps at a time.
Also the mod files are backed up in a separate folder to the game files as any game update could override the mod files so keeping work copied to a separate folder is essential.
With the sabre tooth my priority is to make sure that the cat's "sabre-teeth" appears on the model as this is the most unique part of this particular prehistoric cat.
I have also sourced what I believe will be the prehistoric version of the pig in Rising Worldwhich will be an interesting animal to come across in the game.
Over the next few days I will be working on adding a saber-toothed cat to the mod with the ultimate aim being that you will be attacked by a sabre-tooth when you travel in specific biomes.
The sabre-tooth that will be added will most likely be the Xenosmilus hodsonae. The challenge with the Xenosmilus is that it has a small tail (as shown below) unlike wild cats today but I have an idea how to add the smaller tail to the model to give the correct look of the sabre-tooth.
After the sabre-tooth I will look at adding the Woolly Mammoth followed by a version of the Entelodont prehistoric pig.
A million years ago , an era in which this mod is set, apples were not growing on trees either as green or red apples.
Instead the only apples you could find during this time were apples who were were a mix of colors between red and a peach color.
This variety of apple disappeared over the next million years to be replaced by the green and red apples of today.
My plan for how you will find water in this mod....... my eventual goal is to have water a little more difficult to find and as shown below water here is hidden in the grass next to an apple tree.
I am hoping in the future that we have the ability to mod sounds in the game as you can currently find sources of water by hearing the sound of running water which as shown below would not be a correct sound for this source of water which is still and not moving.
Actually looking at that last picture with the tree how cool would it be to see a Tyrannosaurus Rex roughly same size as the tree standing a little bit behind the tree looking directly at you?

1. Go to your RisingWorld folder.
2. Create a folder there called Texturepacks
3. Download the texture zip file and save it in the Texturepacks folder. (Do not extract the zip file)
4. Go back to the RisingWorld folder and edit the file config.properties
(I use Notepad ++ but you can use Notepad that come with windows
5. Look for the line
6. Replace it with
7. Save the file , close it and play Rising World with new textures.
8. When you want to go back to the original textures change the line for custom_texturepack back to
NOTE: If you suffer from motion sickness you may need to turn off refractions in the game settings.
I am looking at the specific era that my mod will take place in but probably looking at somewhere between 1 and 3 million years ago.
Today I am working on finishing the moon as it would have appeared back then where the Moon experienced the Mare Volcanism period which was prior to the intermediate cratering across the Moon resulting in the countless number of craters now visible on the moon.
Over the next few days I will create a section in the mods section of the forum dedicated specifically to my Prehistoric Rising World mod.
The picture below is an example of how the copper ore currently shows in the mod...... you can compare it to how the new iron ore appears as shown on the prior page. This copper ore will likely be darkened a little.
These textures are still early versions and will be tweaked here and there over the coming months
Fixed the issue with the new iron ore and I have just added the new copper ore to the game.
One thing I have heard with youtube commentary on the game is that players were not sure if they had discovered iron ore or copper ore. I admit I had that problem too where I thought I was using a pick axe on iron ore only to find it was copper instead.
With these new textures you will know with a quick look if you have copper or iron ore in the rock with the copper having a more different color with a darker rock mixed in with it.
Very early version of new iron ore for my mod..........
There are however some issues I need to resolve with Rising World when using this new texture where Rising World zooms in a short distance and then zooms out again, repeating every 5 seconds or so..... and then I am unable to use the pick axe on it.
Perhaps due to using an Nvidea plugin for photoshop and not using a required setting ... I have only changed save option from DDS1 to DDS3.
Still....the look of the new iron ore is what I was looking for at this early stage.
