The freighters are flown by brontosauruses or europasauruses. The best I could come up with so far is "Sauropod", which sounds kinda freightery and is the group name for these kinds of dinos. If you can think of anything better and it fits with the other names, I'd be happy to put it in!
FYI Brontosauruses aren't real dinos

And what about calling the freighters Long Necks?

Three horns don't play with long necks.

Maybe sauroposiedans. The spelling maybe a but off.
Looks great anyhow.

Sauroposeidons (;

But yeah if not Long Necks then Sauropods because the "pod" part makes them sound like they carry stuff. Which is what freighters do

I'll keep "Long Necks" in mind and see how it fits together with the other names! Thanks!

I've taken another look at the Wikipedia page for "Brontosaurus/Apatosaurus", but I'm not sure how they aren't real dinos... Are you referring to the name "Brontosaurus" not being used in the scientific community, or is there something else that I missed?

Update!

The game is now about 90% complete (which means it's still 2-3 months out), so I thought I'd film one of the early missions played on an iPad, to show how the controls work:


Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


After a dinosaur battle group was discovered hyperjumping through a secret Terran system, Sneaky Jacques and the interns escort a scientific shuttle investigating the enemy's jump trace.

I recorded another video, this one is of a dialogue scene. There's one of these after each mission, the example here being from very early in the game:

Graphics, music, and lasers seem super spot on, as well as the ship designs (there was a big cruiser you dock on at the end that I loved).

And I loved the second just as much! Character portraits are sleek and cartoony, and haha, the dialogue was genuinely funny (made me chuckle once or twice).

Keep up the awesome work!
