Careful, this could become a "feature" - the fish won't die, you just won't be able to see them through the murk!!

high resolution fish models are coming? omg, i almost wet my pants with excitement!

Jim,

I realize now that they do open at a slower rate. It’s just not dramatic enough to seem real, and causing the accordion effect mentioned by jroseone. Clams have a fast reflex when they close, kinda like a twitch. I don't think they should close all the way every time, that's not their behavior. But to alleviate the accordion effect, the clams should have a flinching action, much faster than the opening rate.

It's not often that this happens! .... I couldn't get to the Print/Scrn key fast enough! :)

..... And a rather nice background colour, - don't you think?

I haven't seen that one on mine.

Nice job on all three closed. Been attempting the same thing without success.

Hi Jim
First off I think the clams look great!
But (lol) I also love the way they look when closed.
Do you think you could have a random clam close at a random time.
Say 5-10 min's and stay closed for 30 sec's or so. That way there would only be a clam fully closed
Every 5 to 10 minutes, and they would still work just like they do now.
Just a thought don’t beat me up (lol) I just think they look so much better
When one is closed. If not I am buying it anyway.
Thanks Ron P.

I agree. :D

I think upping the close speed would be suffice in eliminating the issue.

I was about to comment on how often the clams move, as if they were exercising.

Then I remembered in an earlier post about fish interaction - I had 30 fish on !
There was always a fish bumping into them.

IOW - less fish = better clam experience

Can't install beta 10, saved file to Documents and clicked to open,Internet Explorer tries to open several times a second resulting in a strobe effect and cannot be cancelled. I have to restart to get rid of it, any one else experienced this please?
I,m using IE8, Vista premium 32bit, 4Gb Ram, Quad 6600, GeForce 9800GT,Direct X 10, and 202Gb of space left on H/Drive,HP 2558 monitor

Plecostomus 05-10-2009 08:11 AM

OOOPS, Please forget last post, just realised I was trying to open zip file with IE8, all is now well, and I apologise for wasting time

No more clams...
 
Beta 10a expired today, so I had to revert to the Prolific installer version, without live clams.:( They really made the aquarium come to life, with their interaction with the fish. I hope the new beta (or installer) will be up soon, so we can be clamming again! Jim, it is amazing how you can bring things to life!:TU:

rctneil 05-11-2009 02:44 AM

Yes, mine has expired to so have temporarily reverted to the ribbosn screensaver until a new beta comes out. I could go to the installer version but might as well wait for the next beta. Not a big deal as I can wait!

Marian Nichols 05-11-2009 03:16 AM

mine too :sad:

I am ready to buy it, even though I know it isn't ready completely.

Or just simply set the computer to 1st of May instead.

I noticed that Beta10a says: "Beta 9 has expired..."
