Unknown is a term used to describe several unrelated genera by the game code.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Unknown is not a true genus, rather it is a grouping of four separate genera which share the singular commonality of not having a unique genus name assigned by the game code.

Members[edit | edit source]

A data analysis of the 2.42 game code listed the following creature ids as separate Unknown genera:

  • Crab, the aquatic genus related to terrestrial Bos unofficially referred to as Bosaquatica.
  • Fiend and Minifiend, the game file name and genus for Biological Horrors.
  • Rockcreature, the genus for unscannable rock-like creatures sometimes discovered by players when mining minerals.
  • Swimrodent, the aquatic genus related to terrestrial Procavya, unofficially referred to as Procavaquatica

Additional information[edit | edit source]

Unknown was previously used solely to reference Procavaquatica before datamining made it known that other unrelated genera shared this same genus tag.
