Pictured here in various stages are some of the creatures you will meet on this island:
Dimetrodon melleri (created by Aernoud): Pictured here as created by Aernoud via Goggle Sketchup, it's an incredible model. Interestingly, Blender's import literally blendered the legs, so I'll have to tinker with the mesh before I get a chance to add it to the game. It's a shame too, this model is so beautifully done, I originally had planned to just rig and animate it as is.
Xenacanthus moorei: (created by Birdman): Xenacanthus was a type of freshwater shark with species that existed from the late Devonian period to the end of the Triassic period.
Trilobite (created by Birdman): This is a second re-texture I've done for it. Trilobites were incredibly diverse arthropods that flourished from the Early Cambrian until they ultimately went extinct at the end of the Devonian period. Birdman has some other incredible works, I'd love to include but the mod would no longer be called Permian Playground.
Sea Scorpion (created by Dilopho DD): More correctly known as Eurypterids, this model created by Dilopho DD is Jakelopterus rhenaniae ("Otto Jackel's wing from the Rhineland") was a monster of an arthropod with an estimated length of 2.5 meters. Technically this Eurypterid existed in the Devonian era, but Eurypterids existed from the later Ordivacian to the end of the Permian.
I'm currently in process of re-texturing this incredible model for import into the game.
