Recreating Jurassic Park 93 in Jurassic World Evolution
In this article I share some photos of my recreation of Jurassic Park in sandbox mode on the video game Jurassic World Evolution.
So here is my second article of this week. A new palaeontology article will be on the way after this one, which I am really looking forward to spending some time writing. The past few months have seen some really exciting fossil discoveries which I can’t wait to cover on the blog. Before then however I wanted to write this article about the video game Jurassic World Evolutionand share some photos! This is my second article to focus on Jurassic World Evolution as I wrote this article here on the 6th of December 2019 about the Return to Jurassic Park DLC campaign.
There have been a lot of YouTube videos and photos posted online of peoples movie recreations of not only Jurassic Park but Jurassic World and various movie scenes even before the Return to Jurassic Park DLC was released. Since completing the Return to Jurassic Park campaign in Jurassic World Evolution I have seen even more attempts at recreating iconic Jurassic Park and Jurassic World scenes and parks. Youtubers such as Bestinslot, TheGamingBeaver,Swrve and many more have all made various videos recreating parks and scenes from the 5 films.
I have spent a fair bit of time myself (when I have free time to relax) recreating the film version of Jurassic Park as based on the original map. The map in question was put together a few years ago based on the computer screen maps of the park seen in the film, as well as the promotional material and movie art. The map below is therefore the definitive version of the original movie park put together by fans of the film.
In game I thought I would try and recreate the map as best as I could in terms of layout. There are a few differences however, I decided to change the third Dilophosaurus enclosure after the Triceratops paddock and put duck billed dinosaurs in instead. The Segisaurus (eventual paddock) shared with Triceratops I also replaced with Herrarsaurus, Torosaurus and Styracosaurus. Apart from these changes most of the enclosures are as they were in the film. Here are a select few of the photos of the park below taken on PS4 Pro in 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) in HDR.
So there we have it. If you haven’t played Jurassic World Evolution yet it really is worth getting, as the game has come on loads since release with the newest DLC the best released so far in my opinion. My next article will be back to sharing proper palaeontological fossil discoveries which I look forward to sharing with you all soon.
