So what you're saying, Marian, is that the sharks get mobbed by a gang of crabs?

That is a nice screenshot. To go all american on y'all, "Now that's what I'm talkin about!"
Oh my, too much Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, ya think?

Anyway, that's a wonderful bit of reef, so much improved over the original that there's just no comparison. Well done to which-ever artist(s) worked on that!

Thanks to Morgan, Tiny Snapshots is up and running again with "Tiny Järvafält" as the latest addition – Go have a look and tell me what you think.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
'Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

I've had the OK from, "Jim, no not THAT Jim ...", to post a screen shot. - Apparently there may be a short hold-up in finalising the beta testing. - But I can assure you that the wait will be well worth it, from what we have seen so far.
These shots are from the option that just shows the Manta Rays swimming in an open ocean setting. (The rays are a particular favourite of mine) - Their movement is quite balletic, - so smooth and unrepetitive! - Though only as close as this occasionally.
These are using the 'wide' option setting. There is no cropping of the pictures, and no image enhancement of any kind. - Just file compression for web use.

For those who haven't seen it yet, you have a treat in store!

Looking good. This is back on my list. Avoided it since sharks are scary but since playing Far Cry, my level of fear has risen and I do like the movement description by Cliff. Will there be a demo to see before buying and what's the timing on the actual roll out date? Also, as these are big creatures (bigger than the fishes in an aquarium tank), do we track and follow the sharks and manta rays on their swimming around the ocean since they're not in a tank?

They do look great, but sorry no tracking or following.

Angry To Schnaaps

Dear Schnaaps:

I didnt mean to be rude with my comments, Im just a little frustrated since there has been no official updates for "Sharks" since the very beginning.

About my ideas and suggestions, I'll try to explain clearly, since English is not my "Mother Language". (sorry about that)

First of all, we must understand that there are 3 companies with Shark-Themed screensavers with their own features.

1.- Prolific/Lifeglobe... "Sharks: Terrors of the Deep"... Since we already know all your product's features, I'll go on to the next one.

2.- Atlantis 3D... "Shark Visions"... This Screensaver has the very best and accurate Shark models on the Net (Attachment enclosed), they open and close the mouth when swim, and the enviroments are TRUE 3D (Sunken Galleon and a Coral Reef)... However, these sharks follow a predetermined path over and over and cant swim freely on the Screen.

3.- 3dRelax... "3d Living Sharks"... The only "cool" feature of this SS, is that the Sharks are really "alive" (They eat fish, and sometimes they hit the camera while swimming)... However, their models are butt-ugly (looks like made by a 5 year old kid) and the sharks swim very fast (Almost like and F-1 car)... Anyone for a Shark race?


My suggestions goes as follow.

a) Improve the Shark models to match/surpass the ones made in SharkVisions (believe me they are worth it).

b) To implement Eating Sharks and the "Hit camera" features...

c) If possible... to make a True 3d enviroment.

d) Remoras..... Please


What do you think about it?.... Hope to hear your answer soon.


By the way people... I really dont think that a Megalodon is worth for this SS (Since it is already extinct). We should focus on new species like the Whale Shark, Thresher Shark or the Mega-Mouth Shark.


P.D.... Can you tell us the date for the Sharks 2.0 release?

In case you missed it, Sharks 2.0 is in Beta testing right now which means the features are already locked down. It's just bug fixing now.

The shark swimming has been improved in the new version. Hammerheads and Manta Rays have been added.

The new backgrounds are very nice.

We don't do release dates. We're testing the 4th beta right now which is good news.

Hammerheads?

Feldon29:

Are you sure about the Hammerheads?

Sharks 1.0 has a Hammerhead... aren't you mistaken?.... or are you talking about NEW hammerheads?

Do you have any image on the new hammerhead?



Please reply.


Thanks

I was mistaken. I don't have my PC up and running yet after moving so I have yet to test the new Sharks.
