So close


#1

With new migration stuff any idea where/when to find a monolophosaurus in the wild? I’m out of event attempts.


#2

@Jnuttengr local zone 3 :slight_smile: i live in one and ive seen a few lately…

(Edited to upload picture to make it easier, in case you need to know what spawns in each zone)


#3

Yeah, I live in an L3 and have had at least 3 spawn since the update.


#4

I may come across as a noob here but I haven’t really figured out the zone thing, is it simply comparing your local spawns to the ones listed? I assume there is a little more to it since people have mentioned boundaries between zones and where they are.

I’m still trying to get a handle on the fine details of the game as there are a few dinos I would love to get more DNA for but haven’t got a real idea where to start looking.

There’s a little more to it.

There are 3 main types of spawns: global, park/green space, and local. Additionally, certain dinosaurs will only appear at certain times of the day (day/dawn/dusk/night).

Global spawns will appear anywhere as long as it’s the proper designated time. For example, T-Rex and Apatosaurus are global daytime spawns. Utahraptor is a global anytime spawn.

Park spawns are generally seen (you guessed it) in or near park spaces. This includes Tanycolagreus, Gryposuchus, and Argentinosaurus.

Lastly, local spawns are “habitat-dependent” or tend to appear only in certain areas. For example, Tuojiangosaurus is a Habitat Zone 3 (L3) spawn and appears near creatures like Triceratops Gen 2 and Iguanodon; Giraffatitan is a Habitat Zone 4 resident with Suchomimus and Parasaurolophus.

There’s a slim chance that a creature will spawn outside of its designated zone or at a different time than what’s established, but if you’re seeing a lot of the same creatures, you should feel confident that you’re in a particular habitat zone.

I’d recommend checking out the entire blog that @Peter_B referenced over at MetaHub.info via the link below. If you take screenshots of the charts as references, it might be super helpful while you’re out darting dinos.

During my research I did come across that article and it has helped me iron out some of the details, it’s just the habitat zones and how to identify them was a little fuzzy. I suppose I was expecting a more definitive explanation on how to identify them (such as maps).

So based on those images I appear to be in L4 judging by the amount of Allosaurus and Parasaurolophus spawns (with the odd Suchomimus popping up for good measure). But some questions remain - How big would the zone be? Which zones border on mine, is it random or is there a pattern? Do I just compare and contrast the nearby spawns and try and work it out from there?

I appreciate your assistance with my bewildered queries. :grin:


#7

Seems I’m in a L4 as well as all the common spawns seem to be the same and funny enough an Anklyo and Secondontosaurus just popped outside my place.


#8

I see a lot of L3 and L4 spawns where I live in North Florida. Do local zones overlap? I’ve been trying to figure out the local spawns - thanks, BTW, Metahub, you’re doing a great job! - and it’s just not that clear cut to me.


#9

A short distance away from me I see a lot of Deinocheirus and Sarcosuchus spawns, so I assume that means I border an L2 zone. That would be handy actually, would love to get more DNA for my Pyroraptor. I missed out on the Pyrritator during it’s special event and I keep hearing good things about it.
