Various Trespasser Projects

Today’s news post will be packed with updates and showcases of various Trespasser-related topics not directly related to modifying the game.

MinePass

Trespasser in Minecraft? Yes. For the past six years, MinePass has worked on their recreation of Trespasser inside of Minecraft. A massive work where almost everything is built by hand.

3D Printed Art

Community member Wedge_Antilles showcased some 3D printed Trespasser art they made on our Discord. It is really impressive to finally see Trespasser-related art in 3D style. If you happen to have Instagram, you can follow them for more updates: Wedge_Antilles Instagram

Trespasser Comic

We got even more art coming. PierceHill started to make a comic based on Trespasser that will be based both on the events of Trespasser as well as the movie. A few pages have been done. These are all drawn by hand on paper. You can keep yourself updated in the official forum thread: Trespasser Comic Forum Thread

Toy Photography

Long time community member Draconisaurus continues their toy photography. I thought this was worth a mention.

JPDS Turns 11

Guest News Post by Draconisaurus

“Hello! On this day in 2011, JPDS was released to the public. It had been in production since December 2004, bringing production time to around 6.5 years, or one ten millionth of the time since they say Dinosaurs ruled the Earth (circa 1993). We spared no expense. The JPDS Team varied in its membership over time but eventually we pulled through and released a finished, though incomplete, mod to play.

MikeTheRaptor was a great conceptualizer, and modeler, a good friend to bounce ideas with. JPXTom, originally showed me TresCom at the JPToys.com forums. DemonCarnotaur did some great concept art sketches, including the initial area of a helicopter crash by an Ankylosaur and dead Pterosaur. RyanEaglesfield, was hard to work with sometimes but in the end gave some great material. TrikeUatra gave us a great menu. SecondIlliteration did TONS of Dino skin work. Mickey was invaluable for his musical ear, and his sense of a good natural environment in Tres. Nem helped a bit, and Slash_Master. But the mod would never have been finished in time without Tatu arriving on Site B to fix the foliage height errors from JPDS’s bizarre 4096^2 terrain. He even did some level work in the Plains area. 8 )

In recent times I’ve finally gotten a nice amount of feedback on the mod. Youtube playthroughs are quite standard these days and people seem to mention playing JPDS somewhat frequently. I’m glad everyone enjoys it! I myself learned a ton from the experience. Sadly I doubt I’ll ever have a mod project going on so massive as JPDS was.”

 

Please join us as you discuss your memories and thoughts about the JPDS mod on the celebration thread: JP: Dark Secrets 11th Anniv.

 

TresCom 20th Anniversary Level – Progress Update

Back in August 2021, community member TrespasserGuy suggested that the community should collaborate on a level to celebrate TresCom turning 20 years later this year (similar to the community collaboration for Trespasser’s 20th anniversary level). A lot of project has been made and people are putting a lot of love into the level. The goal is to have the level released in November of this year.

If you want to contribute, keep yourself updated on the project, or just download the latest version, check out the forum thread about the project: TresCom 20th Anniversary Level

Forum Issues – Solved

UPDATE: Forum is back online!

Nedry is at it again and caused us forum issues. Stay tune as we are fixing whatever he did this time.

Merry Christmas

Happy holidays to all Trespasser fans out there!

Trespasser HD Remake

For the past several month, out Discord user wohoyefe have worked on remaking Trespasser in Unity. Today, they have shared a first release of their remake. It is an impressive remake, so make sure to check it out. You can find it in our download section: Trespasser HD Remake Download

Don’t forget that we do also have some holiday-themed levels, be sure to check them out in our Levels section!

Kim does Trespasser justice

A new documentary on Jurassic Park: Trespasser is out. Just… just watch it (it is really good):

Trespasser: Isla Sorna

I think it is time for me to make a news post about this mod. Late last year, I released the first version of the Isla Sorna mod created by me and TheIdiot. The first part of the mod combines the levels Beach, Jungle Road and the first part of Plantation House into one big level, while combining the versions of levels we have. You might have already heard about it, or played it. If you have not, check it out for a fresh Trespasser experience!

Server Maintenance – Update

UPDATE: Everything should be up and running. Please report any issues you might have. – tatu

 

Woah, that did not go as planned…

So here’s what happened: during the migration, a mostly automated process, we noticed that the nodes had become unstable. They may have been out-of-synch before, but when the migration started, one of the nodes started to override itself and in turn remove large parts of the files it contained. 

The process was stopped immediately, but in doing so we lost access to the data on the node. The node contained files from some of the hosted websites, including trescom, and more importantly our entire webserver configuration. Without it, all websites went down immediately. The databases, which contains the content to all websites were migrated without any issues, so in a worst-case scenario we would have had all the texts, but only parts of the files (images etc). There was a second backup strategy in place, on top of the replication of the data across the nodes, but that one failed us too, as it stopped synching data from the newer nodes. Regardless, we would have been able to recover data from there, but it would have taken a lot of time.

As of writing, we managed to recover the broken node and regain access to all data. We are now fixing remaining issues on the websites – Trescomforum for example is lacking the proper PHP version. So everything should be back to normal soon.

Scheduled Server Downtime – January 9th/10th 2021

madpipper has let us know there will be a server migration over the weekend, on January 9th and 10th. The site will be inaccessible at times, so please be aware if you can’t access the site. Thanks!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays everyone! This year we thought we would give you a more proper post for this holiday.

Lost Jungle Remastered

Sadly I forgot this in a news post earlier this summer. However, here it is! TrespasserGuy took the enormous project to remaster Draconisaurus and Mickey’s Lost Jungle level and have made an amazing remaster. It is worth checking and and you will be impressed! You can find the level here: Lost Jungle Remastered Download

morningstarring Levels

Forum user morningstarring joined our community earlier this summer and has then made some impressive levels and started doing more advanced t-scripting. Check out some of their levels here and here.

Skatepark Map

Now this is not something we’ve seen in Trespasser before. Community member Teromen made a Skatepark map in Trespasser. While you can’t ride a skateboard, you can use the ramps to get an advantage over the raptors.

“Feel free to try it out. Its a skatepark in Trespasser. There’s a few dinos and guns for fun. I made this for fun and to get better at mapping. I got better at collision especially. It was a a bit tricky. I hope you have fun. Enjoy.”

It is worth checking out and you can find it here: Skatepark Download

Draco~Test

Draconisaurus

Just in time for Christmas, Draco has released his Draco~Test level. He experimented with various things in this level, including a working “PC”. You should definitely check it out to see various things you have not seen in Trespasser before!

“Alright everyone, Happy Holidays from Draconisaurus! My gift to TresCom this year is the latest and final version of “Drac~Test”, where a number of investigations were made about the disposition of the Trespasser technology. There are 5 zones to explore, in various amounts of development. Hopefully some useful things may be found. I’m releasing this now since it is still technically the eve of the holiday and that is when the occasion is celebrated in Europe. Have a great holiday and hopefully many can spend time with friends & family even if only on video.”

Trespasser 2020: A Trespasser Modding Starter Kit

MikeTheRaptor made a comeback earlier this year with a release to make it easier for people to play mods. Setting up mods an be quite tricky, and many people have had issues setting up CE to work with an external mod folder. MikeTheRaptor wanted to help out and made this package for you, and included some levels to get you started playing.

“In an effort to make playing Trespasser fan levels and mods more accessible, I’ve created a simple starter kit that includes everything necessary to begin playing Trespasser fan levels immediately with no setup or configuration required.”

You can find this and what it includes in our download section or download it here: Trespasser 2020: A Trespasser Modding Starter Kit Download

 

New Download Section

We have finally updated our download section. We are now using a new plugin as the old one is no longer in development and started to have issues on latest WordPress.

The new download section will look a bit different, but we will work on improving it over time. It contain all the downloads the old one had, it even got a simple search now on each category page! All downloads will now have their own page, allowing you to make comments to a specific download. Use it to post issues you have with the download, feedback or even reviews for a fan level. You will also be allowed to download a file directly from the list, without the need to open each download in a new tab, just like before.

Go check it out, and hopefully we’ve manage to move all download so all the links work correctly, otherwise let us know in the comments, and we will continue to improve the download section.
