I thought perhaps it would be bug fixes, SereneScreen website improvements,
and documentation improvements.

But perhaps
https://www.feldoncentral.com/forums...ead.php?t=4896
"two jobs to finish up on the Aquarium itself (one small and one big), then I'll turn my attention to website matters. "... referred to the fish models and movement as the big job.

Jim, I appreciate that you would much prefer just doing the artistic part - and that you don't like programming - and that the Prolific/SereneScreen folks are "too busy".

And I appreciate that the limited number of folks who frequent this "test forum" have a strong preference for features.

But in my opinion a buggy, undocumented, hard-to-identify-updates, product isn't going to get the sales and reputation that the artistry deserves.

[Just the opinion of one beta tester]

Please excuse my lack of marine knowledge...does a real Feather Duster "crawl" or are they imbedded in the coral/rock?

Thanks.

Dale - Yes, the new fish models/movement is the Big Job I was referring to. Dreaded it for years, but the time has come.

harris - Feather Dusters, like all tubeworms, live in a hard, permanent tube which slowly grows in length due to secretions from the animal. (But in this case, it doesn't grow.)

Great surprise Jim! Looking better every time! Thank you. Prolific should advertise about the live coral and clams.

I would prefer watching the evolution of the new fish models step by step, by updates, than have to wait 6 months to see all of it done. Or aren´t you happy to enjoy the betas before the final release?

I will be releasing them in stages as I get them done. Some are easier than others.

Some people complain about the updates - they want to wait until everything is "finished" before downloading. I'm just the opposite. I also check my mailbox every couple of days, instead of waiting until everyone in the world is finished sending me mail.

So, Jim... Which fish is gonna be first? After it's re-modelled will we get it directly with old movement or will you first have to code the new movement for it?

I haven't decided yet, but it could be one of the Lionfish. They already have working mouths and gills, so the transition will be easier.

My guess would be clownfish or damsel fish . Something that's not too flat and without trailing fins . I'm looking forward to the new movement . I'll bet that once the fish are able to interact with the background we'll see that it is a lot more '3D' than it appears now .

Edit - nm . lol .

Pretty cool Jim, the feather duster looks great!

I do wish however that it and the clams retracted/closed at full speed though.

As the clownfish is supposed to interract with the anemone far right, my guess is that the clownfish will be done very late...

I'm with this sentiment.
Bat rays? We don't need no stinking bat rays!
