Beauty of Aquaria

A map based on the veil where you can enjoy the beauty of Aquaria

No combats, no violence, only peaceful creatures.




You can find it here : http://aquariawiki.ryanballantyne.name/wiki/index.php/Beauty_of_Aquaria

Comments are welcome Smiley

This is a big map with a lot of creatures, so I hope you won't have too much slowdowns. I had to modify all creatures to set the Update Cull to 1024, otherwise it was not playable ...
Please report any problems you might have.

Woo woo! Modddddd!!

You could add it to the mods list thread:
http://www.bit-blot.com/forum/index.php?topic=702.0

Curse your timing, I have two assignments due on Monday.  Cry

Yaaaaaayy mod! Cheesy

[EDIT]
I just played your mod for about half an hour straight.  Cool Hats off to you sir. I think I've found everything.. 7 costumes?
And the whale actually gave me a start when I first saw it.  Roll Eyes

If there was one thing I think could be improved (though I'm really not sure how) its the rivers. It was thin in some places to the point that exiting once left me helplessly bouncing four or five times before the water caught me.  Lips Sealed

Missing one Smiley (energytemple,mithalan, crab, jelly, teen, seahorse, mutant,end).  The end costume is not collectible so maybe you have them all. I did not include the Urchin costume as it is killing creatures, but  I just realized I could create a new inoffensive costume with the Urchin skin. Maybe in the next release.

I will work on this and see if I can improve it, but I can't have the water level too high or it won't look like  a river anymore.

After many unsuccessful tests, I broke the waterbubble node into smaller nodes, and for some reasons (I still don't get it) it works much better.
I will make a new release tomorrow or this week-end.

Yeah, played the 1.0.1 version, don't know if that's your latest, but also had minor problems with the rivers. Second, not everything in this level is harmless, I'd suggest, if possible, to place some resting points, to regenerate health again. I can't remember correctly if the sleep scene regenerates your health. Orrrr... maybe some of those healing tadpoles scattered far and wide.
Last thing I'd like to note is that the spot around the whale is... empty... very empty.

Finally I must say this was a godlike beautifully map and the spot I loved most, was the perfectly detailed flying fortress you were able to see with the strong current, marvellous!
The runner-up was the submarine of Li on the beach background below the whale.
After that It'd be the place where you get the mutant costume.
So yeah, your map has a top 3 already. Cheesy

Ok, just uploaded the version 1.0.2 that should fix the waterfalls as this is an issue (at least makes things much better)

I placed quite a few healing plants as you can get hurt (initial release), and the savepoint does heal you. Do we really need more healing ?
I did not know the tadpoles are healing ^^, I always wondered. Good to know.

I will also try to add creatures, but I am always concerned about possible slowdowns ... I guess it's ok

Thanks a lot for your feedback !

Oh, and btw I also love your test map with the costumes and the alpha costume, really great design Smiley

There were tadpoles in the original release, did they get removed or something? I didn't have issues with losing health with the number of plants and the tadpoles (not to mention the jellyfish suit Wink ).

I also quite like the small bit of empty space around the whale. It was something I kinda missed in aquaria, the open-ness of the ocean. Its nice to have a break away from all the closed in walls. Smiley

I also really digged the appearance of the flying city.  Azn Thought maybe I shouldn't mention it as it might spoil the surprise for some...

Concerning the slowdown; if you want you can always add a second map. I thought that it had enough creatures, secrets and fun spots. Sadly enough the currents and the few costumes you can collect is the only interactivity you have. None the less, this map IS about beauty.
Either way, once again about the big empty void. I personally think there should at least be something in the background. But that's me.

Second, people who have read this far should have just downloaded the mod already, Hiro. ^^

P.S. I didn't really notice any save points?

If it's not a red rock, I won't find it. XD
Unless I go into editor mode and look for the nodes, but that's cheating.

EDIT: I guess the "Hidden" hint got me, but that save crystal ain't red. =p

New release 1.0.3, added harmless urchin costume, added a bit more life in the sea Wink (but not too much), and some minor changes.
