Default Fish

Hi everyone!

By now we probably all saw the video of SilentHunterOnline... I do not like the idea of such a game, but what I liked a lot in the video was:

The fish swarm in front of the boat in the video.

Would it be possible to add some sea animals, fish swarms and stuff to SH5? Of course there are the dolphins, but I really love this swarm behaviour image infront of the boat... have to say, I love it...

I got the impression that the video was not an example of game play; rather, it was a cinematic advertisement for the game.

Like when the movie industry puts out a shiny trailer for a new movie that catches your eye, then you watch the movie and realize that all of the scenes that you liked in the trailer were pulled from the actual movie.

I am absolutly aware of that. Or that you actually already saw the best scenes of the movie while watching the trailer...
Still, I like the fish.

Possible?

We now have a complete forum just for SHO. Please do not start SHO threads in other forums.

Indeed, it does.
I was asking, if it was possible to add lifeforms (fish) to SH5 (obviously in form of a mod) as they can be seen in the SHO video.

Well, it looks like this is not possible or as if all modders are busy with more important stuff. Fair enough...

I was asking the exact same question years ago in SH4 or SH3, but apparently is not necessary so much difficult to do because as we can see in the SHO video the developers were able to add those fish into the water

It is OBVIOUSLY a request for wild life mods, I can easily tell from reading just the OP. I'd love it, especially whales, both in the sea and picked up by the hydrophone. Who wouldn't?

Has no modder considered this?

Welcome Luxius!

If you want to hear the dolphins and whales in the hydrophone just try Open Horizons - http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=189818

All that you see in the trailer is 100% pre-rendered CGI, no ingame actual footage of any sort, as can be obviously seen for who's a bit used with CGI and 3d modding. Camera movement and a bunch of different things reveals it.

At best, it is some of SH5 rendering engine that is used (and it looks like it), but given the cinematic motion of camera, it's modified and thus, not taken from the game per se. So there's not the same constraints and limitations that modders have to deal with. And there's some compositing in the video too.

For sure though, it's certainly not what the game is going to look like, I can tell you that! A little educating comparison :

Trailer CGI vs. provided in-game screenshot



OUCH! that hurts a hell lot! the engine to come has SH3 capabilities it seems, at the very best. Talk about the future...


Anyway, I myself thought and experimented a bit with trying to make swarms of fishes for SH5 not so long ago. Even so as to experiment with anipmated sprite based particule generators to try and mimick it, without satisfactory renditions. I know there are ways to circumvent limitations in order to implement such a thing. However, I couldn't do much as I quickly found out that I obviously had to wait for TDW's tool for importing stuffs and modifying granny files to be finished, as we are now too much limited in modding with current tools. In other words, could be possible but not at present, thus tailored to the release of TDW's stuff

Now it becomes a SHO-Thread...

I know, in the video it is manipulated. I was wondering, if it was possible in SH5.

Question: OH has whales and dolphins? I use the light version due to performance issues... would the wildlife be extractable in a separate mod?

Trying to nudge this back to SH 5....

OH II has dolphins, but not whales. For some reason the whales never got imported from the previous games. But it's possible, maybe some day.

You should ask this in the OH II thread from Trevally (but he might have his hands full already with the new update...)

Yes, and I apologize. Sometimes I don't get the time to read past the headlines.
