FAQ

In this section you will find answers to the most common questions.

What is JPOS?

JPOS (Jurassic Park Operating System) is a fictional computer system used to manage Jurassic Park.

The goal of our project is to simulate a functional, online Jurassic Park control system, featuring user management, park resources (gasoline, power, etc) and animal management systems.

JPOS is an online, Flash-based system connected to a back-end server with its own dedicated database. Users are referred to as “Operators”, and the system depends on these operators to function. For example, the system's power is generated at a power plant in the park using limited fuel resources, so operators will be required to monitor the plant's fuel consumption and refuel the plant if necessary. If the park runs out of fuel, the system will no longer function, so pay attention!

What is Project Nedryland?

Project Nedryland was the former name of JPOS. The project has been in development since 2005, beginning as a simple Flash webpage with animated Park Systems features

    

 

 

 

Can I register for JPOS access?

Currently, the system is only accessible to developers. Only testers and contributors are able to access the Development Environment at this time.

We do not allow the Visit and leave.

 

 

 

 

Which Park Systems were reconstructed?

JPOS is comprised of several systems and subsystems:

 

MAIN IRIX DESKTOP

The starting point for all operators, the Desktop provides access to subsystems like Workgroup Management, IntraMail Box, Workgroup Chat, and more.

 

MAINFRAME 3D SYSTEM NAVIGATION

The 3D Navigation system offers an alternate user interface for locating and operating the park's systems.

 

MAINFRAME

The Mainframe System allows users to monitor the status of the park and other subsystems.

 

 

PARK SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS

PARK SURVEILLANCE (CTV) SYSTEMS
The Jurassic Park CTV system allows operators to monitor the park visually, in real time.

 

WHEN WILL JPOS BE FINISHED? (HOT)

JPOS is a work-in-progress.
The JPOS team is currently focused on the development of critical park systems; the introduction of the animals will be the final stage of development.

Please check the Progress page for the most up-to-date information.

 

 

Who are the authors and contributors?

All ideas are taken from Michael Crichton's book and graphics are restored from the film adaptation.

 

 

 

 

What was the inspiration for JPOS? Who holds the copyrights?

JPOS' functionality was inspired by Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park and the graphics were inspired by the systems featured in the Jurassic Park film adaptation.

All rights are reserved by Michael Crichton, Universal Studios and AMBLIN.
All characters and events are fictional.

 

If it's not Jurassic Park, it's extinct!

 

 

WHY IS CHROME NO LONGER SUPPORTED?

Unfortunately, Chrome produces rendering errors when used with JPOS' 3Dfsn system.
Additionally, JPOS requires Adobe Flash to run and Chrome support for Flash is ending.


We recommend Operators access JPOS via Firefox or a Firefox clone with Flash support, such as Pale Moon browser.

 

WILL JPOS CONTINUE TO FUNCTION AFTER DECEMBER 2020?

Adobe has chosen to discontinue Flash after December 2020.

After that date, JPOS will only be available using legacy software with Flash support;
we recommend using Firefox or similar (Pale Moon) to continue to access JPOS.
