That's good to hear, but after all these years of trying, I'll just stick with plastic.

Backdrops

Hi,

I'm enjoying GA, but I would enjoy it MUCH more if we had the option to add photo/graphic backdrops like AR and AG do. I don't much like the "blue sky" look of the tank. In a real tank if you had this much light coming in it would turn solid green with algae. I'd really like to be able to put a stone wall backdrop behind this tank. And it would be really nice to have some optional plants to add, like an Amazon Sword plant.

Yes, my idea is to create a turtle for the aquarium. Can you do that?

I happened to pass through the computer section in Costco this weekend, and a Vaio on the shelf was showing the goldfish screensaver, but it had blue gravel and a couple of big rocks that don't appear in the version I've got...

Anyway, the fish looked very realistic, and the plants (it was sparse mode) looked and behaved like the ones in the regular GA, so I'm assuming it's the same program.

Is that a special-purchase, exclusive version that I was looking at? Not that I particularly want blue gravel, but I bought my copy of GA just a few weeks ago and didn't see any options for changing the background.

My wish for both GA and MA is the panning feature, so that I could disable the lights-off feature. I've got no problem with my virtual fishies having a bit of night-time, but let them have it when I do, and not during the day, when I want to watch fishies. :-)

Since it's announced that the freshwater aquarium is on hold to favor further development of GA and Sharks, I really do hope that panning and auto-panning will be near the top of the new-features list. After that, they can get to my other wish, the realistic split for dual monitors. ahem...

The blue gravel is the the bundled copy of GA that comes with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

A Mac User's Wishlist

(This is a cross-post. I already posted it in the Mac GA folder.)

Seeing GA with the blue gravel got me interested in it again. It really is too dreary with the boring brown gravel and brown rocks (even with the plants thrown in!).

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give us blue gravel?? So we don't get all depressed by our fish in their boring brown tank and switch over to Marine Aquarium instead and neglect our little goldfish friends??

Even better would be gravel where we could pick the color (I'm picturing a slider like the color sliders in Photoshop).

Also, I have a 21" display, and when GA is scaled up to fit it full-screen, it makes the fish creepy-big. Could we get a little more control over the scale of the fish? I'd rather NOT have the plants extend to the top of the screen and have the fish end up with a little extra space to swim in and have them be a normal, pet-store size.

Hrm.....y'know, I probably ought to post this in the regular GA forum.

Q: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give us blue gravel??
A: Can’t. That was just for Microsoft.

Q: Even better would be gravel where we could pick the color (I'm picturing a slider like the color sliders in Photoshop).
A: We might be able to do this, but we would not let you pick blue…

Ok…that was a joke. Yeah, we might allow sliders for this in the future.

Q: Also, I have a 21" display, and when GA is scaled up to fit it full-screen, it makes the fish creepy-big. Could we get a little more control over the scale of the fish?
A: This is possible, but something that probably won’t be worked on for a while longer.

Wow! Amazing response time!

Actually, I think I'd be perfectly happy with Non-Microsoft blue, whether it be a shade greener or purplier.

Uh, oops. What I meant was----all things being equal, if I had to chose between having creepy-big fish and having the background fit perfectly or having pet-store sized fish and having a background that didn't reach all the way to the top of the screen, I'd choose the latter. I honestly don't lose any sleep over the fact that the plants go to the top of the screen.

Thanks!

Goldfish critique

I really like goldfish, so I was eager to download the demo. I was a little disappointed. The fin movement didn't seem as realistic as MA. I imagine that it would be more difficult with the goldfish because their fin and tail movement is more dynamic. I don't remember if there was any mouth movement(I uninstalled the SC) but this would be even more important with the goldfish than with the marine fish.
Thanks

A fish for the Wishlist

How about a Betta? They come in blue and red, I think, and I know that other fish don't like them (or vice-versa). But, you could have just one at a time on your screen.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

a betta in a goldfish tank, probably won't happen.

Betta do well with other fresh water tropicals, it's each other, the males, that they do not care for.

And what about a splendid pumpkinseed or sun fish like we say in France,it's a colourful fish and it can easily stand comparison to many tropical cichlids!



or this variant.

Those look like good candidates for the Freshwater Aquarium.

iM,
It's on hold at least until MA3 (with extras) is out.
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.
