    Holy crap! I was just watching Yogscast's play through of your map and it looks fantastic! I was also surprised to see my wolf skin (amaterasu) included in your texture pack! Lol, I didn't know anyone was still using any of my silly textures anymore! Keep up the good work!

    Hmm well, Dj Persinikity what you said is actually what i tried to mean, I´m sure I didn´t said that all the mobs should respawn in groups because as you just said, it would be chaotic. What I wanted to mean is that only the smaller fish, like Jellyfish sould be animated in a group, because they behavior in 1.2.5 when you put much of them together, they move weird. Alright that being said I´m sure we will understand each other now. The idea of puting remoras in sharks and smaller fish on other mobs is really realistic, it will be very nice to see that, so go on with that you are doing great.


    Thank you :D
    Honestly, if I am to be totally honest, we have NO idea why the jellyfish do that. They have the same code as everything else... I guess they are just special. I will maybe put up a vote to see if the majority wants them changed... because I kinda like the weirdness, lol. They make GREAT vertical tanks for Minecraft houses. Just a one block wide by 3 or 6 blocks tall and the movement is just hypnotic to me. Like Minecraft lava lamps!

    You didn´t get it. All the fish drop the actual fish, but in different amounts, an example: an Angler fish may drop 1 fish, but a Whale should drop 20.

    About your plans, Kerik, I have an idea: why you not make (as Endless Ocean) the smaller fish a group, and the bigger an individual entity. Lets say. Angel fish, Jellyfish or even Crabs should respawn in a group with a single respawn egg. But, the medium fish (Eel, big Jellyfish and hopefully the Goblin Shark) and the bigger fish (Whale, Shark Whale, Cachalot, Giant Red Squid) should respawn in individuals entities. Although there are some exceptions, like turtles or Hammerhead Shark, they use to swim in groups, but of course, that is up to you. You may make a group of Hammerhead Shark up to 4 mobs, but the Angels fish should respawn up to 9 or 10 maybe.

    I hope this make some easier your plans, is just an idea, but I think it would work very well.


    Well I'm not going to make everything spawn in a group, lol. The plan is schooling and shoaling fish will have multiple fish in one model, the whale and sea turtle and such will spawn singularly with small fish schooling underneath or behind them in the model, sharks will probably spawn singularly with maybe a remora or two under them, etc. The world would look crazy with that many things hanging out together lol. I'm trying to make the multipe fish the small ones. Big models in large numbers locked together in one big group look odd when they turn. Smaller fish aren't so obvious.

    As for the fish. Honestly, I have no idea... the fish will probably drop generic fish, maybe the octupi and squids will drop calamari, the crabs and shrimp might drop crustation or crab meat or something, and the whales will drop Greenpeace tears... i dunno. We'll have to figure it out later.

    it says 1.2.5 is that the mod version? can it work in 1.4.7


    Currently the download is for 1.2.5

    With some tweaks to the code it kinda works with 1.4.7 but it's a buggy mess so we haven't released it yet

    YAY people haven't given up on us yet! Ok, here's an update. It is going to be a while for me to finish the "new" models. I am working on them though.

    The idea is... I am trying to combine models and make them more complex. For instance, instead of trying to spawn a bunch of different corals together to create a reef, why not make an enormous reef filled with different corals and fish all working and moving together. Not only is this a much prettier thing than just 6 different colors of the same coral together but I can add in a bunch of reef fish and through animation create interesting "behaviors" for each individual fish or just prettier animations. Picture this, giant sea fans with sea horses hitching and swimming in between the branches or rocky dens that house endlessly circling moray eels. In my opinion much better than a singular fish swimming through the ocean and hopefully swimming past a coral reef every once in a while.

    Instead of spawning in 50 fish to make a semi-impressive school of fish, why not place 3/5/or 10 fish in one model and animate each one independantly to create a more dense and interesting schools with less mobs spawned in at a time (so theoretically less intensive on people's computers :D)

    Also, I am playing with some rotation point placements so hopefully we will have flying fish in the next update or dolphins (Dolphins that actually jump and spin and... frolick? Is that the word I'm looking for?) :)

    I'm also working on more predatory fish and actually making them a bit dangerous so there's actually something to worry about in the water. Finally we should see a hammerhead making its way in here lol

    Lastly I'm going through and adding small touches to some of the bigger models (fish schooling underneath the whale or behind the sea turtle, smoother animations, working on animating the stupid octopus, lol)

    I promise we are still working but while Kerik is tinkering and playing with the code to see what he can make happen in truth he can't do anything until I give him something to bring to life. So it's all waiting on me. I promise, assuming I can get this done it will be well worth the wait.

    And I promise that if we do lose interest or decide to give up on the code I will personally post every model, texture, and bit of code on these forums to give the mod a chance at someone else's hands. I won't punish you guys for our laziness and procrastination by burying the code in obscurity.

    Also, Sniperofthebrine... HOMESTUCK! I just read it and it is amazing! Lol, I am getting totally off topic and nerdy...

    Alright, I have to jump off here and get ready to catch a flight. Babysitting a farm in the morning for my family!

    We don't just want to make a bajillion updates with one or two things. We want to make giant updates filled with awesome and honey nut cheerios. On a related note, my tablet is completely amazing for texture work!!!! Also it really, really sux for making models (DAMN YOU TECHNE AND YOUR RESOURCE HOGGING NATURE THAT LAGS MY GERIATRIC COMPUTER ::shakes fist angrily at kids on my lawn:: ). True story, less than 5 minutes ago my tablet shut off in the middle of a new model -which i hadn't gotten around to saving yet- for an enormous coral ridge... yay (<= sarcastic).

    So... maybe I will get a desktop computer for christmas ::pitiful, adorable, irresistible, begging face... also pouty lip tremble:: which would make it easier and much faster to make complex models. Also, I could help code and test! And by code I mean of course screw everything up royally by slamming a 20oz coke (or a herring, or a pair of sunglasses... whatever's handy) against the keyboard for 3 hours and making Kerik fix it all the while grumbling sweet nothings under his breath... obviously that's what he's grumbling under his breath... yeah... let's go with that.

    What was I talking about again?

    Mmm... Imma get a Coke and stare sulkily at Techne until it apologizes... it knows what it did...

    I dunno. I can't remember if I checked out the Koi mod or not (Just took a peek at the thread and wow...awesome fishies.). I do make tons and tons of mod support textures for SummerFields, though. (Which is yet another reason I was super-excited about this mod...I don't have to re-do all the textures to make it look right. :D )

    On that note...the gars scared the crap out of me. I didn't realize they jump out of the water and I turned around and "ZOMG FLYING FISH!!!! FLYING FISH WITH TEEF!"

    That's right! I used your stuff for inspiration with my textures lol. I knew i recognized you from somewhere!

    Of course there is! I made it! :)

    Your mods are amazing! I just sent these to Kerik to get a look at. The mob controls and achievements are so awesome! You really did a good job filling the voids in vanilla.

    And with Forge... I've heard (read, lol) that Forge messed with a lot of base classes and made incompatibilities more likely. Granted I got this from the creator of Better Than Wolves who seemed a little pissed but I don't know.

    Or, I could suggest that the players of this mod download Mob Spawn Controls to control mob spawning...

    Holy crap, this is a thing?! Lookin into it...
    And Kerik is totally trying to update. He's been doing it for a few days but with all the code shifting for big changes coming it's sorta a lot to figure out. Plus Kerik sorta taught himself how to code with Minecraft lol
