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?

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.

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

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!

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!

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

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