A Parasaurolophus skin made using the random button.

Skin Customization is a feature that allows players to create their own customized skins based on existing skin layouts, modifying their looks by altering colors and textures. This system is purely aesthetic and does not affect gameplay in any way.

Skins and Making skins

A Megalosaurus skin made by hand.

Players get to customize their dinosaur in two different ways:

  • As they spawn, the window to customize their skin will automatically show up once they selected the dinosaur to play as.
  • Whenever they wish to modify their dinosaur while in-game, they can press "O" by default. However, this option will disappear once the player's creature has reached 0.7 (down from 0.8) growth.

Once this window is opened, players can select the skin they wish to wear using the box in front of the option labelled "Skin". Upon choosing a skin, several categories will appear below this box offering the player a diverse amount of color options. With this picker the player may:

  • Choose the color itself (Hue)
  • Choose the alpha layer of this color (= more or less present)
  • Choose the Saturation of this color (from white to specified color)
  • Choose its value (from pitch black to full vibrant)

To undo the color of their selected skin, double-click the name of the skin. This should reload the skin back to default colors. To save the customized skin to be used again for another time, select the "Save Skin" button.

Skins will not disappear when the creature has logged out. It will remain on the creature for as long as it lives.

There is also a button that allows players to make random, naturally appealing skins.

Types of Skin Customization

There are three different types of skins.

  • Fully customizable skins - every part of the skin can be edited
  • Semi-customizable skins - only certain parts of a skin can be edited
  • Non-customizable skins - the skin cannot be edited beyond its default pattern

There are also exclusive skins for certain players or developers.

Skins and Nesting

Skins can be inherited by offspring through nesting. Offspring will have a combination of the parents' skins with some random variations.
