Strategy Edit

To make a 5 star park in less than a year, make a park, build 3 enclosures and open the park. In one enclosure put a Ceratosaurus and in the other 2 put Dryosaurus. In June or July put in an enclosure with a Stegosaurus herd and an Allosaurus. Keep the predator well fed and put musters between them to seperate them. Put a Safari in the enclosure with the Stegosaur herd and the Allosaur. In October build a Dilophosaurus pen and put a Safari in that. You should have a 5 star park before the end of December. Put Paleo Trees in the enclosures. Once it is December you should have a 5 star park. Make sure you take LOTS of photos in your Safaris.

Cleanup Edit

this article is a REAL mess and it is far to long. All missions have now their own articles. But still it is a mess. MismeretMonk 20:43, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

Lethal Gene?

Hello, i am a huge fan of jurassic park and i love JPOG. But on the game, specifically research.... there is something called the Lethal Gene. Can someone please explain what it is?


It is something that will apparently kill the dinosaurs without having them suffer or feel pain, apparently a security measure (I never use it though, as I think it is pointless and cruel).

Quiz on JPOG Edit

http://www.sporcle.com/games/IndianaParkWars/jpog-characters THis is m JPOG quiz! It is great! Hope you like it!

Re-makeEdit

The should make a re-make or a sequel of JPOG and have all the dinosaurs mentioned in the series. I also think it would be cool if they also included the Chaos Effect dinosaurs in there to. Ezio Auditore 15:11, April 22, 2012 (UTC)

Wikia Unification Project Edit

Hi
I would like to draw some attention from contributors, anonymous or not.
Actually, 3 other small Wikia exist about this game:

Thus, I would like to know if people here are interested into a merging process, i.e. redirecting thesaid 3 small wikia here? The whole Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis community will only gain benefits from this, instead of keeping a divided fan community on a very old game.

Thanks in advance for further comments!

Sincerely,

I've urged people on those wiki's to join Park Pedia. There are a lot of wiki's out there, the JP: Builder wiki, the JP Toys wiki, an other Jurassic Park wiki(!). No response. I think many people like to own their own wiki's instead of joining an already working wiki and start as a freshman. BastionMonk (talk) 13:59, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
The "Create a wiki" button in the Wikia's navigation bar is probably responsible for this weird fact. Wikia don't even try to do something against it. I came across countless of identical wikis targeting the same franchises. I still don't get why people want "their own wiki" where ther's already a bigger & better one. Some says that "a JP: OG wiki can go much more deeper into "details" than here"... But are those details really necessary? ^_^
There is NO LIMIT to how far you can go into details, but listing how much parc visitors wear a blue jean or how much umbrella's colors they can have is just useless and unnecessary. Especially when you consider the fact that it's a 2003 video game...
Besides, you should know that, when the admin don't answer for one month, and that there's no activity from him/ her in the wiki, you can redirect the wiki here by sending a message via special/ Contact (just ask me if you want to know more about the "merging process).

If we merge the Wikis, then you loose key info about dinosaurs which is specific to the game. Also, It should be the Jpog Wiki which decides as a whole to be unified. The Jpog Wiki is for giving detail about the game. Sure it has an article here, but then Jurassic park has an article on Wikipedia, and wikipedia does not go into detail about the dinosaurs depiction in the films, In the same way this wiki has little detail on the depiction of dinosaurs in Jpog.Edaphosaurus (talk) 09:29, August 19, 2013 (UTC)
Well, key info about dinosaurs from this game can be put in a Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis header in each dinosaur's page, even with an infobox inside the header specially designed for JPOG (I already came across many wiki which use several infobox per page). So that is not really a big deal.
Of course, As JPOG wiki have an admin now, the decision is up to JPOG wiki to merge or not.
Sure, you can enter as much as you want into details, but it might be good to remember that it's a 2003 video game, which is obviously pretty old now. The "fan community" isn't as big as it was since then, which makes sense for an old game which hasn't been officially updated.
In substance, there isn't enough people who'll search for a JPOG wiki to justify the existence of a separated wiki.

Edaphosaurus said: "In the same way this wiki has little detail on the depiction of dinosaurs in Jpog."
If there is little JP:OG info on this wiki, it is because most editors here only watched the films (what a HUGE JP fans they are). Every stupid thing from the films that could have an article, has an article now. Still, we only have -1,500 articles. For a wiki, that is VERY little. I'd love to see articles about the JP:OG and JP:B dinosaurs containing every little trivia. But people, including YOU Edaphosaurus, aren't creating them. (Don't look at me, I dare say I've done enough for this wiki.) BastionMonk (talk) 13:58, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

Cut DinosaursEdit

Hello, I think this information I found about cut dinosaurs should go on the JPOG article, but Bastionmonk thinks not, deleted ALL this information, locked the page, and removed the Cut dinosaurs Subcategory. If anyone thinks this is/isn't a good idea please tell me why/why not.

Several dinosaurs were cut from the game, leaving only their names on a file inside the game's files. Compsognathus is mostly absent due to being such a small dinosaur, it could have caused tremendous problems of biting guests and being impossible to be shot by helicopter. Also, the cold-embryo storaged DNAs in the first film Metricanthosaurus and Proceratosaurus were not in the game. Also, Mamenchisasaurus from The Lost World: Jurassic Park is absent because it could take up much more space and Brachiosaurus was the biggest dinosaur in the game. Pterosaurs were not in the film as well because of their ability to fly and devour guests. These are the other cut dinosaurs:

  • Alioramus
  • Deinonychus
  • Baryonyx
  • Ornithomimus
  • Yangchuanosaurus
  • Diplodocus
  • Apatosaurus
  • Iguanodon
  • Maiasaura
  • Panoplosaurus
  • Thescelosaurus
  • Tenontosaurus
  • Wuerhosaurus
  • Chasmosaurus

These ones were self added.

  • Compsognathus
  • Metriacanthosaurus
  • Proceratosaurus
  • Mamenchisaurus
  • Pterandon*
My reasons for removing/reducing this information is because no evidence is given that these dinosaur names are found in game files. As far as I can see, the reasons these dinosaurs were cut are unsourced. The whole matter is better suited for the Trivia section than the main text. And, I'm kinda sick of deleting the Alioramus article for the X-th time. BastionMonk (talk) 20:53, August 12, 2013 (UTC)
Well, do you have the game? And if you do have you ever looked into the files for the names?
I have the game. I've looked at the Dinopedia pages some times and never saw anything of that kind. However, it could be somewhere in the files, but why should I go and look for it? People who make up these lists should look for it. BastionMonk (talk) 13:56, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
Just a question: Who care about whether those dinosaurs wee planned or not in the final release? It's a page about the game and the real content, not about the speculation of the "beta content" based on some files' names and not even on an official interview or a demo featuring the aforesaid dinosaurs.
Don't get me wrong, I'm the first one to study games' beta/ alpha/ protytpe versions, but only when there is visual version available for us (like in GTA III, MGS2, Ape Escape's Time Station...), a leak or interviews (Fable, MGS, etc.). But when there's just a file's name, it's obviously not enough.

Bastion, going onto the computer and looking at the game files is very easy. However, I used to have the game, and when I looked at the files, I could only find one for Iguanodon. Jurassic Park Treasury (talk) 01:11, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Well, it are a lot of files. I looked into some of them, like this file:
DinoList = {
   allo,
   spino,
   trex,
   galli,
   raptor,
   cerato,
   dilopho,
   acro,
   alberto,
   steg,
   anky,
   para,
   tricera,
   brach,
   homalo,
   edmont,
   cory,
   pachy,
   styrac,
   toro,
   dryo,
   kentro,
   ourano,
   carcha,
   camara
};
I CAN'T see anywhere a list containing cut dinosaurs. I'll only continue on this wild-goose chase if anyone can convince me there are cut dinosaurs in the first place. I think it is just a stupid rumour. Let all those people who desperately have to add this list figure it out. BastionMonk (talk) 09:14, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

I think you're looking in the wrong place. It has been a while since I've played the game (last time I played it was 2011), so I'm not sure if I recall correctly, but the Iguanodon file should be in a folder titled "entities". Jurassic Park Treasury (talk) 00:05, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, maybe it is there, maybe it isn't. I'm gonna do an experiment. Let's see if there is ANYONE on this wiki who actually owns this game and can be bothered to look into the maps and update this article. But I don't think so.
  • 50% of our editors are idiots,
  • 25% only watched the films during their childhood,
  • 20% watched the films again recently,
  • 3% have watched the films 100 times but don't know ANYTHING that isn't already on this wiki. So they only add speculation or duplicate articles.
  • 2% also knows some non-film JP media. And most of them start new wiki's about that subject.

This article needs a lot of work. And the only thing our editors have been doing with this article for the past month is again adding that "Cut dinosaurs" list.

BastionMonk (talk) 10:07, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Once again. Another of those cut dinosaur list removed. No evidence what so ever. BastionMonk (talk) 10:02, November 14, 2013 (UTC)

Because I'm getting utterly sick of all those kids who keep moaning about these cut dinosaurs (I wish they focused about more important issues), I've searched through the in-game files again. I've finally found the names of the cut dinosaurs. I've listed them with a screenshot @ Dinosaurs cut from Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis. SATISFIED!!??
