Much like the real world, seasons come and go in the world of Paleo Pines. They mirror summer, offer a fall experience, and bring spring – all in their own unique way. There’s dinosaur delight to be had in each one.
They not only bring with them the changing of leaf and plant colors, but dinosaurs may migrate, fruits may be in season, and the sort of plants you find change. In this guide, we’ll show you all the changes each season brings: where dinosaurs have moved to and all the new crops and fruits you can find, so you can make the most of each season.
What Are The Seasons In Paleo Pines?
There are three different seasons in Paleo Pines. There is Triassea, the world’s equivalent of spring-time, Jurassos, the season that mimics our world’s summer, and finally Cretumnus, a fall-like season that brings orange leaves and lots of rain.
What Are The Seasonal Changes In Veridian Valley?
Veridian Valley is the first area you access, and it contains many common resources you’ll need such as Dandelions, Clover, and many breakable objects you’ll need Dino skills to get rid of.
Many bushes, especially those in the southern half of the valley, grow Cranberries on them, such as the bushes just outside your ranch that sit by the mushroom circle.
Triassea is also Pear season, and the Pear trees will drop fruit every day. One tree can be found just outside your ranch, and the other is located east of Mari’s home by the Wuerhosaurus are behind a stone fence.
Herbs, a plant liked by dinosaurs that prefer a Spicy flavor, grow near birch trees and sign-posts but only during rainy weather.
After opening the path to Dapplewood Forest, some forest Dinosaurs can be found in Veridian Valley at times, such as Oviraptor appearing on the hill east of your ranch.
Baryonyx can also be found near the hidden lake north of Pebble Plaza in the evening, and Centrosaurus can appear in the clearing near the entrance to Dapplewood Forest.
Instead of Cranberries, Raspberries will begin to grow on bushes, most often on the tops of small hills in the valley:
- Three bushes are near the southern entrance to Owynn’s house where Cranberries used to grow.
- Two bushes are against the grouping of three trees overlooking Mari’s camp just north of Pebble Plaza.
- One sits near the desert area where a single Postosuchus spawns in the middle-right edge of the map.
Carrots also grow in several spots around Veridian Valley, such as near the two birch trees just off the entrance to your farm and on top of the small hill near of Pebble Plaza.
If you’ve unlocked the path to Ariacotta Canyon, a single Allosaurus will begin to spawn in the desert area east of your ranch.
Two Therizinosaurus will also spawn on the hill blocked by logs that’s just southeast of Owynn’s home.
Two Ouranosaurus spawn at the edge of the river south of Mari’s home where Coelophysis also spawn.
Mushrooms now spawn in Veridian Valley as well as Dapplewood, and they can be found growing in several spots throughout the valley, such as:
- One is located just outside the entrance to your farm where Styracosaurus are found, against a log.
- Another is located on the tall hill directly north of Pebble Plaza.
- A third group spawns on the tall hill just west of Mari’s tree house on the northern edge of the map.
- Some spawn along the pathway into Dapplewood Forest.
Herbs also now spawn regularly regardless of weather, usually at the base of birch trees.
Gallimimus change locations, and they can now be found in the clearing slightly to the northwest of Dapplewood’s entrance.
A new flowering plant, Saffron, begins to grow as well. These light and dark purple flowers can be found all over the valley:
- Most notably two spawn just outside your ranch near the mushroom circle.
- Two to three spawn under the large tree on the path towards Pebble Plaza.
- Two spawn along the fences south of Mari’s tree house.
- Between five and eight spawn near the Triceratops in the desert area past the breakable rocks east of your ranch.
If you’ve unlocked the path to Ariacotta Canyon, two Dimetrodon will replace the Allosaurus that previously spawned in the desert area east of your ranch.
Apple trees in all three areas on the map also begin to regularly drop fruit for you to pick up in Cretumnus.
What Are The Seasonal Changes In Dapplewood Forest?
Dapplewood is likely the second area you’ll unlock, and you’ll need to tame a Styracosaurus in order to do it.
You can find a variety of resources and new dinosaurs in it, such as the important Forest Wood and Mushrooms, which are used in several furniture recipes.
The main seasonal produce you’ll find in Dapplewood are Gooseberries, which grow on several bushes around the lower-east section, such as two on the path into Dapplewood and down the pathway leading to two Stegosaurus.
Two Wuerhosaurus spawn in the northwestern corner of Dapplewood, and two to three Archaeopteryx will also spawn just west of the Wuerhosaurus.
Two Ankylosaurus will now spawn on the ridge blocked off by rocks that sits directly north of Marlo and Pippin’s homes.
Clover also grows in Dapplewood during this season, usually on raised ridges, beneath trees or by the rivers.
In Jurassos, Gooseberries are replaced by Blueberries, and they can be found on bushes in several of the same areas, but especially on the raised ridge on the right of the path leading into Dapplewood, and one bush is near Agami’s lowermost farm.
Garlic, tall green stalks with a white-ish puff on the top, also begin to grow in several places of Dapplewood, mostly on the eastern side of the area:
- Five to six spawn at the edge of Agami’s lowermost farm.
- Two to three spawn on the raised ridge where two Oviraptor run around at.
- Two to four spawn in the round clearing blocked by a wood log where Therizinosaurus spawn.
Garlic sells for 18 Gold alone for zero-star versions, so Jurassos can provide easy income if you collect all the Garlic in Dapplewood every few in-game days.
Baryonyx can be found at the lake at the center of Dapplewood in the evening, replacing the Megalosaurus that’s normally there.
After you’ve opened the path to Ariacotta Canyon, a single Carnotaurus will also spawn in the northeastern corner of Dapplewood, just above where the Kentrosaurus are found.
Jurassos is also Peach season, and all the Peach trees in Dapple such as the one near Agami’s lowermost farm will drop fruit every few days.
Truffles, a new type of mushroom appear as small mounds of dark-brown dirt. You’ll need to use dinosaurs with the Clearer skill such as Lucky or an Ouranosaurus to dig them up out of the ground.
Blackberries replace Blueberries as the bush-based plant of the area, and can be found in many of the same spots as both Black and Gooseberries.
Hazelnuts now regularly grow on Hazelnut Bushes and you can pick off them like berries, mostly in the south-eastern quarter of Dapplewood.
Mushrooms also spawn in several additional locations in Dapplewood during Cretumnus, such as near the pond where Megalosaurus spawn.
Ginger, a new crop, grows in several locations across Dapplewood, such as on the upper left path that leads to the Stegosaurus or against the small cliff in the riverside area where Archaeopteryx spawn (past the breakable logs).
Megalosaurus spawns change slightly as well: they’ll only appear at the pond at morning and midday, and they’ll appear where a singular T. rex used to spawn past the breakable logs in the middle-left area of the map during evening and night.
What Are The Seasonal Changes In Ariacotta Canyon?
Ariacotta Canyon is the third and final unlockable area, and you’ll need dinosaurs with the Slasher, Stomper, and Smasher skills in order to get all the resources you’ll need to restore the entrance to it.
You’ll gain access to numerous new crops and items, and several more difficult or slower to obtain crops such as Turnips and Ginger will become more easily obtainable.
A group of three to four Styracosaurus can be found in the clearing east of the entrance to the Canyon, where the T.rex would be during Cretumnus.
A single Pinacosaurus can be found on the ridge where the Ariacotta Windmill overlooks Archeo Pelago.
Velociraptor will also spawn more frequently during this season in the northwestern corner of Ariacotta Dunes.
Chilis grow on their respective plants every few days, and several plants can be found throughout the Canyon, such as in the southeastern corner of the map where a single Allosaurus spawns or on the ridge above Ariacotta Dunes where Protoceratops spawn.
Spiceroot, one of the key crops in Ariacotta Canyon, grows more frequently and in several more locations during Jurassos, and you can usually find it beneath trees.
Ginger also grows more frequently in this season and can be found in additional areas, such as behind Ariacotta Windmill or beneath trees like Spiceroot.
Mango season occurs during Jurassos, so all the Mango trees will drop fruit every few days. One tree can be found on the ridge where Protoceratops are near Ariacotta Dunes and another tree can be found near the Pinacosaurus blocked off by Fiber in the southern area of the Canyon.
Scelidosaurus can now also be found on the northern side of Archeo Pelago in groups of three to four.
Pineapple also show up in spots across Ariacotta Canyon such as in the ravines you reach via blocked cave entrances.
Desmatosuchus also spawn in the Canyon during this season on the northernmost path towards Ariacotta Dunes, close to the northernmost entrance.
An additional Euoplocephalus also spawns in the northwest corner of Ariacotta Dunes.
A single T. rex spawns in one of the clearings in southern Ariacotta Canyon, just east of the entrance on the way towards the closest Allosaurus spawn.
Saffron grows more frequently and in more spots during Cretumnus, usually beneath rock formations and in small crevices.
Two Postosuchus also spawn on the northwestern path you can take heading to the Ariacotta Dunes where the Desmatosuchus would be in Jurassos.
