Date of Release
Mandibles is an upcoming total-conversion mod for Carnivores 2. Intended as the spiritual successor to Carnivores Triassic, this mod takes place at the same continuity as official Carnivores games and introduces the Eos Sector, with its unique flora and fauna.
The mod is currently under development, with a first Beta release that has been just released
A few years after the initiation of the famous Triassic Tour, DinoHunt Corp. has entered some rough times. Despite the company's mostly successful attempts to contain the Gojirasaurus outbreak, word of the fiasco has leaked out, causing a rapid decline in revenue from the hunting tours, the dinosaur zoo and other business ventures on the dinosaur planet- though off-world ventures, such as the recently reopened traveling zoo, were still moderately profitable. With DinoHunt's investment in bio-weapon development lost and that entire branch of the company shutting down, the company needed to take drastic measures to bring paying customers and investors back to the dinosaur planet. Thus, they have reluctantly opened a hunting tour in a new region of the planet: the Eos Sector.
Situated south of the Triassic Sector and just north of the Antarctic, the Eos Sector was known and researched thoroughly by DinoHunt since the first days of their Ice Age Tour. Like the Central Sector of the planet's northern hemisphere, the Eos Sector's climate is mostly tropical and temperate; but instead of large mammals, dinosaurs or synapsids, the local fauna consists mainly of prehistoric arthropods- echoing that of Earth's Paleozoic era, particularly the Carboniferous period.
With DinoHunt's clever strategy of marketing it separately from its dinosaur- and mammal-hunting tours, the so-called "Mandibles Tour" soon became popular among the cream of the galactic society. Dinosaurs were yesterday's news, but hunting giant prehistoric bugs was a novel concept- and everyone wanted in. But why was DinoHunt reluctant to open the Eos Sector until now? What deadly secrets hide within the sector's depths? Only time will tell...
Mandibles' most notable feature is the animal roster, which consists mainly of prehistoric arthropods, in contrast to the Carnivores series' trademark dinosaurs and mammals. Another important feature is map design, which focuses on expanding the limited pool of known paleoflora on planet FMM-UV 32 and bringing to life various visuals based on the Paleozoic era.
