  1. I went over 12hrs and theres no penalties I ended up just over 15hrs in total. I was lucky enough to do it on my first attempt. Practice makes perfect so keep at it.
  2. I completed the jurassic measures trophy today and thought I could put some advice for those struggling. The start is quite crucial. If you dont get off to a good start you will need to restart as you'll end up in the 'loop' where you only make enough money to 'sustain' what you have but not to grow which happens around 3-4 stars. At the beginning build a power station, expedition centre, fossil centre, use large paths to connect (seems to help transport rating til mid/late game) build a hammond centre in an open space and build a 'holding' area with room to branch off in 3-4 other areas eventually. Build your first pen and house 2 of each dinos ie. tri, struth, hya. When you can afford to, create your second pen that branches off your holding pen (off hammond centre) build 2 ceras as theyll give your income a boost. Utilizing one hammond centre not only saves the construction cost but power as well. Saving is your best friend, you have 5 save slots and I saved every 30 mins or when I hit a new star so I could revert when needed which I only needed to do once. If you have a storm and dinos break out and people get killed it's probably worth reverting. Hurricanes arnt scripted and will take different paths on earlier saves possibly doing less damage. When you expand you will use the same method to build more pens and dinos, I highly recommend leaving all the pens around each hammond centre with either carnivores OR herbivores. The hammond fee is the bane of this game mode. For me it averaged at about 80% of my profit but I always stayed in the positive. At 2 stars I had about 100k income per minute (imp), at 3 I had 180k imp, at 4 i had 250k+ imp and by the time I got to 4 stars I had 350k imp. I reckon if you are way lower than these figures (especially 2 - 3 stars) then restart as you'll get stuck in the loop I made alot of money from selling unneeded fossils and cant stress this enough, get 3 dig teams asap and research all the fossil centre upgrades. When you can use heavy electric fences for your dangerous carnivores and double skin the perimeter and internal fences, if there is a storm and they get freaked out they will only break thru 1 layer before the storm leaves and they calm down again. When a hurricane hits follow it around ready to drop fences to quickly patch any damage done before dinos get out. Using this method I only had 1 indorex escape the whole game. Also I had 8 shelters around the island and wasn't afraid to open them, I never had 1 human casualty, meaning no lawsuits. I kept a large area from the start open and dedicated it to power plants and then had a ranger station close to that so any sabotages were easy and quick to fix even if I had to drive there manually. I used increased output upgrades as I didnt see the use for outage protection. Concentrate on mainly herbivores near the start as the fencing available is pretty crap, only start trex, Raptors, barynx when you have electric or even better electric concrete fences available. Dont worry about the variety penalty, it seems high at the start but end game when you have 25+ varieties of dinos that will disappear and you will be able to pump out multiple high rating dinos ( my favs were dilophosaurs and tsitisaurs seen they have high social and can squeeze 100k+ rating out of them easy) I ended up with 107 dinos and the rating was just over 10,000 total. Took me just over 15 hrs to complete. Had 4 hotels and only built monorail at end once I needed to get my transport rating over 80. Finally, dont feel the need to rush this playthru. Plan carefully where you place things and be thoughough on your research and you will get all the way! I'll keep adding stuff as it comes to me. Cheers
  3. 9 years of trophy hunting and loving every moment of it!
  4. Have been messaging and emailing the crap out of codemasters regarding this to no avail... pretty ridiculous that the trophy was only available to obtain for 1 month looking at the leaderboards. If I'd only started playing it again 2 days earlier I wouldn't be in this predicament but then I wouldn't expect it to be unobtainable for at least a year either.. grrr. Another developer to add to the 'do not support' list
  5. Hey, I played this game right from day 1 and prioritized these events. I ended up on the leaderboards for about 15 and made sure I set at least 1 valid lap before I quit. I didn't get my trophy til the completion of the 26th event. And my cousin got his for his 24th. Seems to be no particular pattern for obtaining it, all I can suggest is keep playing til it pops. Chur
  6. Awesome, for sure I love a good challenging game. I try and 100% all the games I play and I'm pretty close now. Havnt played vanquish but I may have to give it a go. Cheers
  7. Hey there, I just stumbled onto this thread and wanted to wish you guys good luck. I platted xcom enemy within and enemy unknown a year or so ago and thoroughly enjoyed both. It was refreshing to play a game that was unique in so many ways that offered such a challenge and where every desicion had consequences. Was most dissapointed to learn that xcom 2 was not to be released on ps4 but I'm sure it will one day. Anyway I have enjoyed reading thru this topic and hope everyone enjoys their xcom journey.. R3D
  8. My first plat came 7 years ago. Had been playin Resident Evil 5 with my cuzzy and both of us were steadily working towards the plat, One of the first decent horror games with trophies. And on April 13th 2009 we got there and had a blast doin it. Ever since then I've given trophies a decent nudge and I'm pretty proud of my virtual display cabinet. I don't do it to gloat about, personally I don't mind what people think as their entitled to their opinion, I only play games that I want to play and don't consider myself a 'trophy whore' there's plenty of games that I could finish for some cheap points and sure I may have a couple of those games on my list, but the quality of the majority outweigh those. A good few games I have continued to play and plat with my cuz which is what I feel gaming is all about. We've managed some of the hardest trophies coop, with laggy servers and disconnection dropouts imminent, even dedicated around 20 hours to the 'it's in the trial' trophy for dante's inferno which is only a bronze but so satisfying once it finally popped. I initially only really cared about plats and not so much completion, but after buying a few dlcs cheap and being satisfied with *100% I pushed on and have managed to tidy up most my games and I try to keep my completion rate around 98% These days I don't game all that much but still give it a decent go when I do get on.. have to give my wife a mention too, thanks for putting up with my eyes being glued to the TV, the relentless sound of the buttons being mashed furiously, the roar of the race cars screaming out of the surround sound,the heavy breathing when I have a headset on and all you want is peace, the thousands of gunshots I have fired echoing throughout the house and yea.. all the cursing when things wernt goin so well =) I think I've gone a wee bit off topic so my apoligies but I don't post often and think this is an excellent topic. It's mint reading everyone's posts. Cheers R3D
  9. Yea mate for sure! My best on shi no Numa is around round 90 with a score of over 600,000 without using the ray gun or waffle. Just sucks that not many people play it anymore... just hackers that ruin the survival factor. sigh
  10. World at war. Platinum and 100% is extremely difficult. Yeah mate the veteran campaign as bad enough and getting over 75k in shi no Numa was difficult at first, but finally mastering it and surpassing that score tremendously has made it one of my all time favorite games. Zombies havnt been as good since...
  11. I'm gonna run with a few off my list that I remember being a pain to Plat... Gran truismo 5 (Gold standard trophy) Prototype (Pt trophy) Shift 2 (king of the hill trophy) Cabela's dangerous hunts 2011 (I will survive trophy, some how i did it with the ds3) Grand theft auto 4 (Auf wiedersehen Petrovic trophy - had to do all races and modes 3 times due to glitchy servers) Call of duty world at War (for the motherland trophy - grenades anyone?) Pain in the arse dlcs... Dantes inferno dlc (it's in the trial - a combined time of around 20 hours for one shitty bronze trophy!) Dishonored dlc (by my hand alone trophy) still yet to 100% Dragon age origins dlc (grim reaper trophy) I try to finish all the games I play but some of these games go from piss easy trophies to devasatingly difficult trophies. Perserverance is key, practise enough and you will get the trophy
  12. Hey I have 5 plats ffx, ffxiii, ffxiii2, type 0 and lightning returns
  13. Choice cheers bud ☺
  14. Hey I'm from new zealand and I'd be keen to join. Probably the only game Ill need help with is the ghosts dlcs if anyone's keen? And probably future ps4 online trophies. Cheers
