It worked for me. Very impressive, but I'm sure you think there's still room for improvement...

Two new plants by Paolo, Annullaria and large calamites20141125084948.jpg

Awesome as usual, Paolo :)

The Lepidodendron now have got green trunks.

Clayton Jones told me, and Wikipedia says also, that the trunks were indeed green, like giant "herbs" with a photosynthetic stem.

Growth and decay:

Juvenile, full grown and deceasing Lepidodendrons

Btw, does anyone know anything about purely aquatic plants of the carboniferous? Under water the scenery is still completely empty... I assume, there was as much life under water as it was above, but the aquatic plants didn't fossilze as good as the plants above the water? I didn't find anything about this when searching this topic.

This looks great. Really love the detail in those tree ferns.

I don't know much about water plants in the Carboniferous. I think there are a number of small creeping plants in the Sphenophyllales group. I could imagine some of them being emergent water plants.

Thank you all :)

@fossilized6s: It makes me very happy that you use it as a wallpaper :)

@Dinoboy123: Unfortunately it currently does not run on a mac :(

There's nothing much new to show, as I am currently programming the user interface.
New things will come next year.

Until then, I wish you a

Hi,

a lot has happened in the meantime.

There are a many new plants and stuff by Paolo (excellent as usual ;)), some Rocks and improved level design by me, overall improved performance and improved shadows:

newPlants.jpg

Not all parts of the level are yet full of plants like in these images, but this will come soon.

The UI is finished (texts are not final):

ui.jpg

There's a main menu now, the Arrows on the bottom can be used for walking and looking around, and you can click on plants to view their description. There's also multi language support (currently US/German).

We are now nearly done with the basic stuff, and it is planned to release a first public alpha in March.

Very impressive! Will you include the literature references on which you have based the reconstructions of the plants?

Thank you :)

@paleoflor:

I can not include it directly, because I collected it all around the web... also by some hints by the forum members here (see earlier in this thread), so it would be a copyright issue to include it. After all I know, Paolo researched the same way.

But probably it is a good idea to provide some links.

The most important site for me and really helped by the accuracy of its documentation.


I thank all those who contribute to make live this French forum and especially the fantastic work Bruno_Vallois.


Moreover, internet is a great source for keyword search. :)
