With all the maps for the game, and all the animals but one being done, I just need two things before the game is officially out of Beta status.
These things are, as follows:
1. Source code modifications. Right now, the most urgent one is to replace the Yeti AI with Tyrannosaurus AI. All the other modifications I need are on lower priority. While IBC did something like that in the past, it was 3DFX only (I need D3D, and preferably Software too) and the game would crash whenever I tranquilize the animal. So I need someone with source code knowledge to take it from the top, and hopefully do it soon.
2. The mystery 10th animal itself. I have already created the basic model. What I need is someone to rig and animate it to fit the Tyrannosaurus AI, as well as add sounds. Because I don't want to reveal the animal's identity too soon and spoil it for everyone, this work must be done with extreme and utmost secrecy. If the 10th animal gets leaked out I will personally tear open a new anus to whoever is responsible.
It's hard work, granted, and unfortunately I cannot do either of these things myself. Whatever I could do myself for this game so far, I did. The rest, gentlemen, is up to you.
So what are you saying, gentlemen? This is the home stretch, the final mile. Together, we have the chance to bring something great and unique to completion, after seven long and tiresome years of development.
Who's with me?

Back in September 2007, when the art of crafting Carnivores mods was in its infancy, I have conceived the idea of "the next game in the Carnivores series"- a game which, like the last title in the series, Ice Age, would be based around the animals and vistas of a certain period in history. For that mod I have chosen to focus on the Triassic- the period of great deserts and early dinosaurs.
Despite being awfully buggy and lacking many assets, the mod achieved great popularity, to the extent that long after its discontinuation it has inspired a few imitations bearing the name.
But now, with people being able to make maps, weapons, and even new animal models, it's time for me to bring it back.
Unlike the first version, which was a mediocre Carnivores 2 mod, this one will be a mod for Carnivores Ice Age, allowing for the benefit of the supply ship as well as a more challenging hunt.
In Carnivores 1, 2 and Dinosaur Hunter, you've explored the tropic and sub-arctic regions of the planet FMM-UV32, where thick forests and jungles grow teeming with dinosaurs. In Carnivores Ice Age you headed up north, exploring the icy taigas of the arctic in search for prehistoric mammals...
Now, it's time for you to move on south- just recently, DinoHunt Corporation's probes have discovered new lands, down below the equator, dominated by arid deserts, dry savannas and steaming megavolcanoes, among others- and inhabited by synapsids, basal archosaurs and primitive dinosaurs. The new region, aptly dubbed "the Triassic Sector", is now being opened exclusively to the most experienced hunters, with the promise of hunting the ultimate carnivore: the mighty Megalosaurus.

The new weapons were made by Alien DH. He's in charge of the weapon skins, sounds and stats, though I did change the skins a little bit.
