I doubt it will be anything like a shrimp. That one is probably going to be fairly complex and take some time to get the 3D model correct starting from scratch. As far as I know, Jim hasn't started on anything like that yet.

A Cleaner Shrimp would be a major project, so it would have to be part of a Creature Pack.

I'll be darned - he really does look like his avatar. My apologies for any prior offence. Take care of that sunburn, though.

All those types of creatures won't be done until later on. Each one will have to be created in 3D totally from scratch. It will be a time consuming process, and I'm sure Jim has other things he wants to implement first.

Those type creatures will be made available in the creature packs offered later.

Yeah, what he said. A seahorse is one of the easier critters, so it will almost certainly be in the first Creature Pack.

So the creature pack will be released when exactly?

Not that we're impatient in any way of course

From info off this board, I'd guess at least a year, maybe 3.

I don't do time estimates. There's no upside to it.
I'm having enough trouble with the simple little surprise creature I'm working on.

Creature huh??

OK if that's the case I might change my guess to be a nudibranch.

New creature? I thought the fish being overhauled was next on the agenda!

Ok, I'll take a wild guess. It's an electric eel with Jim's name flashing across the side of the creature.

Yeah, but there is only one small glitch. You will need one of the new i7 core cpu's to be able to run it. Otherwise it could possibly reverse the magnetic poles of the earth and cause cataclysmic results!
