Fall Lodge and other misc news!

Welcome, to another program of TresCom News!

Fall Lodge Release

There might have been an absence of news post but surely there have not been an absence of work in the community.

Fall Lodge is a level with a small twist made by the community member Draconisaurus, crated for Halloween 2017. The level itself is not your typical Trespasser level. Its main focus is its type of mini game. In this level your goal is to gain as high score as you possibly could by killing dinosaurs. As the level title suggest, it is set in a fall theme and possibly the first Trespasser mod to be released in this theme.

Grab it now and get your own high-score. We want to hear all about it in the original forum post that you can find here.

Grab the level in our download section or here: Fall Lodge Download

In other news…

The Cutting Room Floor

Our member Glitchhunter have over the past months working a lot with gathering all the information of early Trespasser information onto the Cutting Room Floor site. He has done some amazing work so far and I suggest you all to check it out. Trespasser Cutting Room Floor Site.

Trespasser Online Role-playing Game

I believe this is worth mentioning as well. Over the past year, members over at our forum have played their own online role-playing game with Trespasser. It is pretty popular among some of them and I also suggest you to check this out and join in over here.

Return to Jurassic Park is still alive!

Our community member TheIdiot have worked a lot over the years with his RTJP mod. Late last year he went into the final stages of his project and are working hard on getting the first level finished, titled “RTJP~Helipad”. Be sure to check out his project here and tell him what you think so far! 🙂

Draco’s Plains Release

Many years ago, the community received a bunch of official Trespasser assets. Among these files were an early version of Plains in 3ds Max format. Sadly this file only had foliage and the Block House, but not terrain, or textures.

The last few weeks, our forum member Draconisaurus have worked hard to make a terrain based on the height of the objects found in this 3ds Max scene. The result is really nice and it gives you an insight of what the level might have been at one point.

E3 Demo Finally Found!

E3 Demo Finally Found!

We all thought it was lost. We all have asked if a copy had survived anywhere out there. Would we ever see it?
Great news appeared in our forum a few weeks ago when our member Deadeyeguy_45 discovered a Tweet from no other than Seamus Blackley himself sharing his discovery of the famous E3 Demo build shown at E3 1998.

TrespasserE3Build

Not only that, he also found 2 other builds. A later look at those it was noted that it was an early PCGamer build (for a preview), and another copy of the E3 Demo build, so in all, 2 builds.

These versions contain the famous green T-Rex and Brown raptor. The PCGamer build also contain the long lost, and mythical level PH (Plantation House), originally located between JR and IJ. Both builds can be run and played even on modern systems (confirmed to work on Windows 10 64-bit).

After some talk with him, he was happy to share these with the public, so grab your own copy of these early builds now! You can get them HERE at our forum.

New Trespasser Fan-Art & Magazine Scans

New Trespasser Fan-Art

Do anyone here remember Uroš Begović? No? Some members might remember him from a few years back, when he made a fantastic fan-art cover for a Trespasser comic book (link). Sadly he never made a comic out of it, however, now he is back with some new fantastic fan-art.

Magazine Scans

As some of you might have notices, I (Tatu) have become and admin again. This means I will work on the site and the forum, and you might see some changes from time to time. I have already done some minor fixes to the main site. One thing that I have added is Hilwo’s Trespasser Combined Beta/Retail Stream.tpa Voiceover List, replacing his old ones. Head over to our Article section.

While you are there, you will see a link to a new Gallery. This is where we will place every Trespasser article from magazines that we or you find. Right now we have many added, most in non-English language. There is also an article about a programming tutorial by no other than Trespasser’s Rob Wyatt, written during the time he worked on Trespasser. Go check it out!

I have also added most of the missing videos back to the video site (now you can download them again!). They have been missing since GameSpy closed their service many years ago.

One last thing, we have turned on an extra layer of security when you register a new account (users with an existing will not notice this) on our forum in order to get control of all spambots we get. So far it seems to work without any problems, but if you have problem creating a new account, please contact us.

Jurassic Time: Gold

Everyone, including me, thought 2013’s edition of Jurassic Time (Annotated) was the final one. But it looks like since we got a 4th Jurassic Park film this year we may as well have a 4th edition of everyone’s favorite John Hammond memoir: Jurassic Time! The “Gold” edition is indeed the final one, for sure (unless we unearth pristine and uncut recordings of Attenborough’s dialogue). It removes all of the Thomas Hammond tracks from the previous release to give fans of the game a more authentic experience. You can still download the “Annotated” edition with those tracks in the archives and read up as to why they are gone from this edition. In their place are two brand-new intro and outro tracks meant to sell the idea that this all came from some old lost tapes laying around Hammond’s mansion. Otherwise all of the John Hammond tracks are identical to those from before; still in fantastic music sound quality and filled to the brim with appropriate sound effects.

I can understand those not interested in this edition since it actually offers less than before. But trust me when I say that this, to me, is the definitive way to really listen to it. Anyone who wants to experience more of the story really needs to download the “Excavated” book edition that features the entire script with pictures in a scrapbook form.

This has entire process of making all of these editions has been a labor of love for me, and I hope my final sendoff is one that will be enjoyed. Thank you all for your interest. The pleasure has all been mine. Click on the logo below to be taken to the site.
