Tamed Dinosaurs
Once a dinosaur is tamed can its strength health and stamina be affected by its gender? Also are some wild dinosaurs naturally stronger than others, or all they all the same? It would be cool if one day breeding was implemented and you can breed one dino with good health and another dino with with good strength and get a baby dino with both attributes. Maybe even get some kind of hybrid!

They have variable genetic levels, which affects their baseline statistics. So some dinos are naturally better than others, and will thus scale better when you level them up. Meaning it ain't just about getting a T-Rex, it's about getting the best T-Rex, taming it the best, and raising it the best. Making the system infinitely more in-depth ;)

And yes as we consider implementing breeding, this would play into it... randomly combining the baseline strengths (and weaknesses) of both parents to create a potentially even stronger baseline offspring. Somewhat like real genetic inheritance :)

Will that include a machine or devise that allows us to analyze the various strengths and weaknesses genetically in each Dino?

It's probably too much but seeing the trailer for Jurassic World, what about genetic engineering?

It would be cool to have some sort of device that allows the creation of hybrids when breeding.. more (bone)armor plating, horns, scales, claw length, fire breathing.. wings and water breathing ? ;p i don't know, i guess it depends how silly the devs would be willing to go.. (obviously there would have to be limits to hybrids..)

However i am happy enough that breeding is going to be possible and hopefully we can get a device that allows us to pick certain traits depending on the parents from stats to eye colours..

that would be alot of work. practically an expansion.

Yerh but seeing the amount these guys have done so far in ~8 months ? if they wanted to they could do it.. i am just throwing out ideas anyway but i do understand it would be no small task.

All we need are Sith trained raptors *nods*

I want to be the very best
Like no one ever was
To catch them is my real test
To train them is my cause

(I will travel across the land
Searching far and wide
Each Arkemon to understand
The power that's inside)

Arkemon gotta catch them all its you and me
I know it's my destiny
Arkemon, oh, you're my best friend
In a world we must defend
(Arkemon, a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through

You teach me and I'll teach you
Ark-e-mon, gotta catch 'em all)

Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face
I will battle every day
To claim my rightful place

So Come with me, the time is right
There's no better team
Arm in arm we'll win the fight
It's always been our dream

Arkemon gotta catch them all its you and me
I know it's my destiny
Arkemon, oh, you're my best friend
In a world we must defend
(Arkemon, a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through

You teach me and I'll teach you
Ark-e-mon, gotta catch 'em all)

ARKEMON!
