Thanks again for a great product, and for the time you invest every day. I Love this little program!!!

Kudos Jim. Thanks again.

I'm curious about the upgrade issue...should we go ahead and upgrade now, even if it doesn't have all of the functionality of the betas and is SereneScreen ready to supply serial numbers after we pay?..or is it better to just hold on a bit?..I've tried to look through the threads here but there is a lot of stuff and often the topic goes off tangent, so I'm just looking for some direction on what works best to continue forward....thanks...

Go ahead and buy Marine Aquarium 3 now. You'll get a keycode valid for all versions of MA3, beta, final, and anything in between.

Heya Jim,
How are the clams progressing?

Will be be able to see a preview of them soon?

Will the clams release bubbles randomly as the open and close?

Will the clams shut if a fish brushes past one of them?

Thanks

Regards,
Neil

They are coming along well. I've got the shells opening and closing nicely, and am about to add the blue "meat" of the clam. There are two things which make this part difficult. First, the blue mesh must go up and over the jagged edge of the clamshells as they open, without the shells poking through at any point in their arc. And second, it must carry a trasparent shadow with it to cast over the shells as it covers them.

No time for previews, but the real thing is close.

I've never seen clams release bubbles as they open (except for the fake aeriator clams in freshwater tanks).

Yes, the clams will close if brushed by a fish.

Question

Excellent, sounds great Jim, can't wait for the next beta!

I just assumed they released bubles but my aquarium knowledge is not very high up so i'll leave that to you and the more knowledgeable guys here!

Thanks

Regards,
Neil

Some users have stated that in the last few beta 9 versions they see a portion of the gravel that has the rocks forming a distracting straight line pattern. Where? I don't see it in beta 9M, and I don't recall seeing it in earlier betas. Can someone explain where I should be looking.

Thanks.

It's always been there, not just with version 9. When you go to far right edge of the reef, some monitors show a section of the gravel up against the back edge of the tank. The straight edge at the top of the gravel polygons does not look very natural. When I get a few hours, I'll create a texture and some polygons to "rough up" that edge.

But today I'm busy tracking down a Turkish company that's bootlegging the program.

Clam bubbles would look tough, imo, but not realistic perhaps.

Is it something to do with the law in Turkey that so many bootlegs originate there ?

They feel they are out of the reach of International Copyright law. But if we have any upstanding Turkish fans, feel free to pay a visit to Memo-SE and express my displeasure toward them, with the appropriate amount of punching, kicking, stabbing and shooting.

(Sorry, I just saw "Watchmen" and I'm nostalgic over a simpler way of dealing with evil.)

you sure that is a "Turkish Company"?. Looks like Russian Type if you follow the links and try to download it.. Where it "looks" like they want some $$ before releasing the download..

And... you will get several pages of porn free for your troubles.

We're probably talking about different programs here. The one I downloaded is Turkish -no porn, just a version of my program with different logos and very poorly done fish.

No idea what a bloor effect is, sorry.
