Great to see you guys back, your new stuff looks and sounds simply amazing.

However I must note that I don' really like the lack of feathers on the Albertosaurus.

( Sorry can't make it bigger, my firewall blocks it saying it wouldn't be safe )

Ok, sorry about that then, I thought it lacked them since I can only view the small picture. I think I will see it better when I see it ingame.

By the way - what are the new animations? I can't find any xd
+ second question. Will the final version have new walk animation? BF's one is pretty glitchy and Alberto disorts when he walks.

The new animations are mostly adjustments to existing ones to prevent distortions during certain activities, such as rubbing or sleeping. Lego created a custom set of swimming animations, however.

As for your second question, there may be new walking animations for large therapods in the future. ;)

The maps are in the .z2f. The folder only contains the map images, as they wouldn't function once added to the .z2f file.
