Paranoia Boxart

Zoo Tycoon 2; Paranoia! is a Usermade Expansion by the designing team Z-Studio. It is divided into 2 parts, Panic and Hysteria. Paranoia has over 40 animals planned, 30 or so of which, released. Paranoia is a mythical, cryptid, and Gothic expantion containing many animals that have not yet been made, or even attempted. Panic was relesed on October 31, Halloween. It contained 20 animals, 10 plants, and over 20 pieces of scenery and other objects. Hysteria is gradually being released with the game known as Dungeon of Riddles. So far 3/4 of all Hysteria content has been released.

Hysteria is important to the modding community because it contained new models that were rigged with common animal animations. There was only one animal in Hysteria that was not a new model, the Chupacabra, which was heavly meshed in 3dsmax from a Giant Sable Antelope. Paranoia also had breakthroughs in animal animations and their models. Animals such as the European Dragon, Cockatrice, Mothman, and Quetzalcoatl were coded and rigged in such a way that their wings would fold and open. Paranoia's animals also offered much realism, in the fact that the descriptions of the animals were accurate. For example, the ogopogo was said to be an extinct whale, so Z-Studio modeled it after it. Same goes for the Unktehilia, modeled after a Mosasaur (Minus the Horns).

Panic was relesed on Halloween, October 31 (of what year?). As stated, Hysteria is gradually being released. Part 1 of Hysteria was released on May 10, 2010. It included the Littoral Biome, and Updated Biome Shell for EA, 5 Animals, namely the Jersey Devil, Loch Ness Monster, Ogopogo, Bunyip, and Nandi Bear. After that Hysteria Foliage was released, however the man-eating tree was not included due to animation problems. Hysteria Animals part 2 included the Mokele-Mbembe, Cockatrice, Gambo, Kraken, and Mongolian Death Worm an was relesed in early July. On July 27, 2010 Part one of the Hysteria Scenery was released.

Paranoia also includes the Littoral Biome, the largest biome to date. It contained over 10 pieces of foliage along with its own theme for buildings and scenrey. On July 8, 2010, Nemo released his Littoral Landscapes pack, with 10 more pieces of foliage along with the Manipogo, a Gambo like lake creature.

On January 1st, 2010, a bonus download, the Unktehilia, the horned river monster of the Native Americans, was released for the Grassland biome, but a hack is availble that can be installed to Hysteria to convert it into the Littoral biome.

The Museum was to be included with Hysteria, however this was redone as a building set, allowing the player to build his own manors, much like Sophie's and Snowleo's building sets. This was then released on October 3rd (of what year?). Zelda-Maniak was the main creator of the content. The creation of Paranoia was interupted 3 times. Both by Premium packs.
