Mesozoic Valley[edit | edit source]
The Mesozoic Valley is discovered by destroying the mysterious rock. This then unlocks a separate simulation, in which a separate tech tree can be found.
Clicking the window will give you shells at the rate of 1 per click, but you can gain them faster by clicking the circles in the dinosaur upgrades section.
Remember: Dinosaurs will not automatically generate shells without tapping unless you unlock the automatic trait. This is different from the main tech tree.
After completing all quests for each dinosaur level, you have the option to call an asteroid, which will wipe out your dinosaur tree and restart the valley. It will, however, allow you to unlock more dinosaurs. It will also give you a silver geode, and increase the valley's Simulation Level by 1. Each additional Level on the Mesozoic Valley will increase the speed of the main simulation by 2%, and reaching certain MV Levels will also unlock additional bonus generators for the main sim.
Get as much Mutagen as possible at each level!! (by completing all quest targets and then getting as many remaining dinosaurs as possible up to threshold numbers like 50, 100, 150 or 250)
The difficulty increases at later game...
Types of Dinosaurs[edit | edit source]
The following table shows some info about the Dinosaurs. Cost is the amount of Shell needed to buy the first copy of each dinosaur. The cost increases by 15% each time a new copy is bought. The cost can be decreased by activating traits.
Gain is the number of Shells per dinosaur that is obtained each time the Dinosaur cycle finishes. This amount increases when the corresponding payout traits are activated.
Duration is the initial time for one cycle to be completed. It can be decreased by activating traits. By activating the first duration decreasing trait the dinosaur cycle is automated.
Unlock is the rank needed to be able to buy the first copy of the dinosaur.
Trait is the ranks that are needed to unlock the single dinosaur traits; automation/speed followed by payout.

Traits (incomplete)[edit | edit source]
Traits are cards that can upgrade dinosaurs at the cost of Mutagen. When you open Data Geodes, you can gain a mix of Mutagen, Darwinium and Traits.
Each trait comes in varying levels of rarity, starting at common.
For each trait, as you level it up using more cards, it will follow one of a few different paths:
Speed Path[edit | edit source]
-Then doubles production speed each upgrade
Payout Path[edit | edit source]
-Doubles payout each upgrade
Costs[edit | edit source]
Trait upgrades also have an associated cost, as follows:
|Upgrade No.||Copies Required||Cost & Rate Increase||Rate Increase for Epic Cards|
|1||1||Free (x 2)||x 1.5|
|2||2||50 Mutagen (x 4)||x 2|
|3||5||100 Mutagen (x 8)||x 2.5|
|4||10||200 Mutagen (x 16)||x 3|
|5||20||300 Mutagen (x 32)||x 3.5|
|6||50||400 Mutagen (x 64)||x 4|
|7||100||1,000 Mutagen (x 128)||x 4.5|
|8||200||2,000 Mutagen (x 256)||x 5|
|9||400||4,000 Mutagen (x 512)||x 5.5|
|10||800||8,000 Mutagen (x 1024)||x 6|
|11||1,000||20,000 Mutagen (x 2024)||x 6.5|
|12||2,000||50,000 Mutagen (x 4096)||x 7|
|13||5,000||100,000 Mutagen (x 8192)||x 7.5|
|14||10,000||200,000 Mutagen (x 16384)||x 8|
|15 and more||20,000||400,000 Mutagen (x2 by level)||+0.5 by level|
The current (5/2020) maximum level for a card upgrade is 20.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Pterosaurs are said to be dinosaurs. While they are a sister clade to Dinosaurs, they are not actually dinosaurs. Also, Pterosaurs did not have leathery wings. Instead they had hair like filaments called pycnofibers.
- Plesiosaurus, Mosasaurus and Ichthyosaurus are also not dinosaurs. Plesiosaurs are more related to turtles, Mosasaurs are more related to snakes and monitor lizards and Ichthyosaurs branched off from all other groups of reptiles early on in their evolutionary history.
- The Cynodont is also not a type of dinosaur, but mammals. Dinosaurs and other archosaurs are diapsids whilst Cynodonts are Therapsids
