What Are Events?

Events were limited-time changes to the game that often bring with them creatures and skins that could only be purchased for a limited time. Some larger events, such as the Easter Event 2017 and the Galactic Event, actually bring with them new Maps. Most events frequently went along with real-life holidays, such as Christmas, Halloween, and Black Friday events.

The Events lasted from 2015 until 2020 as the game no longer has its development focused around itself, this is since Dinosaur Arcade, which is a new and revised version of Dinosaur Simulator was announced.

Movie Event

The Movie Event was an event that took place in the early summer of 2015. This event was mostly based around the release of Jurassic World and included many characters from the Jurassic Park franchise. It also included a few Kaijus based off of the Godzilla films. The biggest highlight of the event though was the addition of the Indominus Rex (now known as the Albino Terror), formerly a Giganotosaurus skin, that was the strongest Carnivore in the game at the time.

Good Dinosaur Sponsorship Event

The Good Dinosaur Event was a developer-made sponsored event called BLOXgiving 2015 which promoted the Pixar movie, The Good Dinosaur. This event started on November 12th, 2015 and, lasted until December. ? 2015. The event allowed players to obtain two limited dinosaurs, the Forrest Woodbush and Arlo. Unlike other events, the limited creatures were not purchased from the store. Instead, statues of the creatures were found on the map. Clicking on the statue would give the player the creature.

Black Friday 2015

Black Friday 2015 was the largest event that Dinosaur Simulator had at this point. It was a one-day event, taking place on November 27th, 2015. Like the day it was based on, this event was meant to be a way for newer players to buy limited-time items they missed during past events. The main focus on this event was bringing back the skins from Dinosaur Simulator’s first event, the Movie Event. Everything from that event was obtainable during Black Friday 2015. In addition, ChickenEngineer made a massive change to the Giganotosaurus skin, the Indominus Rex. He made the Indominus Rex its own creature, and as a bonus, he added a skin for it, which is the now-infamous Classic Pitch Black Terror and it was formerly named the Pitch Black Indominus Rex.

Like all other eggs, each skin that was obtainable during the event had a random chance of hatching. Galactic Euoplocephalus, Galactic Dilophosaurus and, Galactic Thalassodromeus were the most common with a 20% chance of dropping, while the rarest obtainable being Galactic Barosaurus, with an insanely low chance of hatching - 1%, due to this the Galactic Barosaurus is now highly sought after. Each skin in the Galactic Event was linked to space in some form, with most being decorated with stars and planets, or having animations that suggest levitation. This event added the Galactic Map for a limited amount of time.

Black Friday 2017

Just like all the past Black Friday events, this event put the obtainable dinosaurs and skins from the Movie Event back on sale, with the exception of the Albino Terror and Megavore. The main detail that sets this event apart was the fact that it was spread out into three different “Waves.”

Waves

One

During wave one, the most notable addition was a Mini-Devasaur Skin, the Blackodile, based on Lucas The KittyGator and was made by the owner of this developer dinosaur which is Haxoura, also known as Liz, and was released for an astounding DNA IconDNA Icon 100,000. Also released were the remodels for the Baryonyx and Irritator, as well as the Fossil Baryonyx skin. DNA bought from the DNA Store was also 50% off from here on until the end of the event.

Two

Upon the arrival of wave two, two other mini-devasaur was released, the Skelewyvern Quetzalcoatlus skin for the Quetzalcoatlus, based on the Wyvern developer dinosaur and was released with the price of DNA IconDNA Icon 40,000, and the Yutashu, based on Rekussu which was available through a code hidden on the old default map. The Fossil Tyrannosaurus Rex was also available and had received a remodel, boosting its range.

Three

With the climax of Black Friday rolling around, the last few skins released were exceptional. The two highlights of this wave were the release of an art skin, the Cyber Ichthyovenator for DNA IconDNA Icon 20,000, and the remodel of the Troodon, in which upon release, was very bugged and was invincible. The Megalodon was released for DNA IconDNA Icon 540. The community of DS had been demanding Carcharocles Megalodon for a long time now, so the developers released the Megalodon as a joke, being a clam (The Megalodon was very bugged upon release and would die upon spawning). The last two additions were some Galactic Skins, being the Galactic Prognathodon and, the Galactic Acrocanthosaurus, both being released for DNA IconDNA Icon 1,024.

Items Sold

Trivia

  • The fourth most expensive buyable skin ever released was obtainable during this event, the Blackodile.
  • All of the “Mini-Devasaurs” in the game so far was released during this event.
  • The Megavore and Albino Terror were not on sale during this event, probably to stop the game from effectively “breaking” due to the overflow of hybrids.

Easter 2018

Like the Easter event of 2017, it had easter eggs that gave skins. Despite all of that, there were no exclusive maps or skins. Although the skins weren't different models, they were in the form of recolored dinosaurs that could change color when roaring. This event gave out rainbow skins for every dinosaur available at the time, most being buyable and some being limited editions. All Rainbow skins became limited after the event ended.

Trivia

  • The second easter event in Dinosaur Simulator.
  • The Egg textures were the same as the eggs inside the easter Gallimimus skin's basket.
