Mac version? Pretty please...

(After all, UNIX is supposed to be so easy to code).

Can't see why not. Jim has to finish the PC version first though so that a coupkle of other Jims (no, really) have something to convert to the Mac platform.

That's right. Jim O'Connor is the Mac guy. If he's interested in converting it, the job is probably his.

Jav - I haven't really thought too much about the number of fish available at any one time, but it should be significantly higher than the current number because the tank is bigger and the collision detection should be better. The z-depth of the tank will be a little deeper, but there's not any real advantage to making it very deep. The fish get too small when they are far away, there's more stuff to hide behind, there would be more 3D objects to slow down the frame rate. If it gets too deep, it's no longer an aquarium, it's a reef.

Judging by your avatar you already got your scuba gear on - I'd say you're halfway there already...

Didn't see this question anywhere yet so I'll throw it out there. Will we receive the registration numbers for 3.0 shortly before it is finished? Seems that the rollout for 2.6 did not go quite as smooth as expected.

I was in a department store in Edinburgh last week, they had on all of their PCs on display what appeared to be Marine Aquarium, but it had a different background to 2.x.

Could this have been a beta version? Are there any betas out there, or pre-installed OEM demos?

As far as 3.0 goes no. There is nothing anywhere at this point other than Jim's computer, in the design stage.

Ian,
Could you describe the background a wee bit more? What was different?

No to both questions. There will be one very wide tank, and the camera will be able to pan back and forth, maintaining the same distance and perpendicular angle from the tank. I'm working right at the outer edge of what's possible here, and if you want to follow the fish or change camera angles while maintaining realism, then you'll have to wait for the holodeck of the Enterprise in the 23rd century.
