Expanding on this, fulfilling requests for DNA where you have 3 dinos to choose from. That way, if you live in a Paralophosaurus dead zone like me, you can choose from 2 other dinosaurs that are available next to it, etc, etc. Maybe once you complete the common DNA challenge, a rare DNA challenge unlocks, then an epic. Number of DNA required for completion linked to rarity, of course, so if you have to get 200 common, you only need like 45 epic. Also, maybe don’t establish which dinos you need to get the epic DNA from, since you never really know what kind of epic you’ll find, you just stumble across them.
Or, to simplify the task, dinosaur tagging? Similar to the DNA, but in this case, it’s more like… “tag” dinos of a specific type, using broader categories, to track populations or however you want to justify it. Basically, an alternative to having to find specific dinosaurs. Just find X number of dinos with sharp teeth/long necks/spikes/rare quality/whatever to qualify. This could be easier with classes of dino added to the game, so you’d be hunting for X HP dinos or Y Defense dinos.
Direct hit challenges. Get X number of direct hits to get a prize! It’s like a carnival game. This might be harder for players with coordination/fine motor issues though. Then again, if it’s just one out of a number of different challenges, maybe that won’t be too big a concern.
Hunting down “specific” dinos for capture. So this one has more story behind it. For example: A wild triceratops is loose in the area, causing all sorts of ruckus. Please track and capture it. These dinos are highlighted in a different color than normal DNA dinos, and perhaps you’re darting it to knock it out for capture. If you don’t hit it enough times the first time, it can still reappear later, and you can finish the job. They’re universal random spawns, not tied to park locations, but also not impossible for players to find, like a lot of non-commons are. This suggestion would need added stuff that isn’t already part of the game, so I’ll stop here.
Anything that adds more achievements to the game is good, I like collecting badges and I’ve only got one achievement left before I’ve completed all of them for this game. Also, all of these also provide opportunity to integrate more DPG stuff into the game.
