2016 EDU: GAME: Anyone for dinosaurs? Hunt them, study them, make movies of them...

Anyone for dinosaurs?  
Hunt them, study them, make movies of them...
A new age of the dinosaurs has dawned in Open Simulator, a galaxy of low cost virtual worlds mostly connected by Hypergrid.  Here is your chance to start your dinosaur collection and enjoy immersion in the world of the dinosaurs.

  • Velociraptor for Open Simulator
  • Own your own dinosaur.  
  • Cadged in your computer.
  • Never needs feeding.
  • Will not mess on your computer
  • Start your own Zoo of Prehistory
This beautiful but scary dinosaur will wander around your property. By default this Velociraptor will move in a random walk, turning its head around to look for prey. It climbs like a mountain goat on steep terrain. It turns its head back and forth as it walks, opening its jaws to make dozens of different vocalizations. The legs are articulated to move in a realistic way. You can click on the Velociraptor to bring up a dialog to put it in Hunt, Migrate (it will walk in a straight line) Charge (run a short distance with jaws snapping) or Pose mode. In the latter mode it will stand still and let you change the head and leg position.-- Kayaker Magic

        Control options--by Kayaker Magic

        The Velociraptor will 'die' if hit by a Magic Bullet or Unity Systems weapon, so it can be hunted with many weapons. However, it charges towards gunshots, snapping its jaws! So you might prefer to use a quiet weapon like a bow or a spear from Ocean Engineering! It may take several hits to kill a dinosaur, and when wounded they try to escape by running away. When the Velociraptor dies, it falls over, bleeds and thrashes its head and feet around for a few seconds. By default it will “respawn” and come back to life in about a minute. Or you can revive it from the menu. 
        The Velociraptor has several modes to control where it is allowed to walk. It will stay inside your parcel, turning away from the edges and turning away from the water's edge. This mode is a convenient way to corral a herd of velociraptors in a small area. If you allow, it can walk anywhere in a 256x256 SIM, crossing over into any parcel on your sim that has “friendly” permissions. Or you can give it permission to wander everywhere in a mega region. In InWorldz it can cross into other regions in a Safe Sims list that you provide. It can only walk on the base terrain, or on flat terrain prims next to your SkyBox. 
        The Velociraptor is a non-physical object so it is very low lag. It is made out of 14 prims. 8 leg prims, (each leg is made of 4 separate articulated mesh prims), body, 6 heads in 2 mesh prims for looking around, two sculpted arms and a tail. This is a COPYable critter so you can rez a heard of them for one low price.
        To walk with dinosaurs, go to The WEB home of Kayaker Magic to find links to several 
        metaverse places where you can see them in action.
