Suggestion: Use italics to mark unreleased creatures, add legend in a bottom part of the template. SkywalkerPL (talk) 08:38, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

I like it. I'll get right on it now.

Unknown Creatures

with so much unknown creatures revealed, Should we list them in the template, i ask about it because currently you can't search them in the wiki unless you're in creatures page, or you're lucky enough to find out the article title, if it's listed the unknown creatures page become much more accessible :) Afif Brika1 (talk) 10:23, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I think that's a good idea. I'll add them.--Cadaeib (talk) 12:35, 7 July 2016 (UTC)


Hey It's me again :P I think Pterosaur should warrant its own section, they are distinctive and recognizable enough, and now they have four members, or y'all wait for its fifth member ? Afif Brika1 (talk) 16:10, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Creatures in the template are not sorted by genus, they are sorted by clade/suborder and/or class. Sorting by genus would be asinine.

EDIT: So I just checked and it actually is a clade. still, creating a new group just for 4 creatures is way too specific.

So we'll wait for fifth member then, tapejara dossier is new, we won't be seeing another pterosaur in the meantime Afif Brika1 (talk) 05:11, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
We were actually discussing this nav earlier. I think the current setup is far too complicated. There are too many categories that the average person probably doesn't even consider when they think of the creature, and may not even be sure of when they try to think of it. We should reorganize it into something much simpler that the layman can easily navigate. The current plan is Bipeds, Quadrupeds, Flyers, Aquatic, Bosses, Event, and Mystery.

I ended up dividing the reptiles and invertebrates into groups by whether or not they were exclusively water or air creatures, for simplicity's sake. After that, I noticed that you now have your pterosaur group. Have fun!

Scorched Earth creatures

Should a new template be created just for Scorched Earth exclusive dinos? (aka Mystery Creatures here) Skylord1496 (talk) 18:50, 1 September 2016 (UTC)


Why are the carnivorous mammals listed twice? Why have the herbivorous mammals been removed? Why is the page locked, preventing anyone from correcting this glaring mistake? 16:42, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

You could just say "Heads up, you've duplicated some information". No need to be so passive aggressive. Also, it's only locked to anonymous editors to prevent core templates from being vandalised. 3mptylord (talk) 17:12, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
Well, either way, thank you. 17:28, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Rex changed to Tyrannosaurus

Someone has changed the creature named "Rex" to "Tyrannosaurus", but since the dossier clearly names it as "Rex", it should be changed back. Especially since that's also how it appears in the icon structure. Can someone please sort that out? 21:12, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi, it's fixed. The rex was called tyrannosaurus some versions ago, but it was changed back in the game to just rex.--Cadaeib (talk) 22:15, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, but could you possibly move it back so it's in alphabetical order? It should be behind Raptor. Sorry, I'd do it myself if I could, but... 04:56, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Sure. Done. --Cadaeib (talk) 17:28, 1 August 2017 (UTC)


I thought by now someone would notice, but for atleast two weeks now the image for the Unicorn does not load, I would fix it myself but I don’t exactly know how to... Scrubbanubnub (talk) 01:16, 7 July 2018 (UTC)


I don't know how to edit templates correctly, but: the Summoner is not on it, or at least not on the overview that shows all creatures.


Andrewsarchus is listed as a dinosaur, but it should be in the mammal section. I can't seem to change it. KillD814 (talk) 19:02, 9 September 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting this. Unfortunately, I think it'll have to wait for the template to be first rebuilt (hopefully next week). Alex4401 (talk) 13:04, 10 September 2022 (UTC)
