A new update is out for World of Diving. In this update, we've added some new fish, improved the 'big fish' animations, added an update notification to the tablet and did some more bug fixing. We've also added sounds when surfacing and submerging. These were long overdue and add some extra immersion.

Please note the divegame.net profile settings have been moved to the settings menu. We've replaced the divegame.net profile button in the main menu with a button which directs you to the EUCL3D 3D printing service to print out your avatar.

The complete list of changes:
- The following fish were added to the game levels: Lionfish, Orca, Red Rockfish, Rockfish, Sperm whale, Great white shark, Tiger shark
- Big fish trailing animation is now smoother
- An icon is now displayed in the tablet when it is updated (ex. when a story mission is completed or an Oceanopedia entry is updated)
- A sound effect is now played when surfacing and submerging
- The little hercules buddy's propeller now rotates when swimming
- Moved the divegame.net profile settings to the main menu settings menu
- Added a button to the main menu which directs you to the EUCL3D 3D printing service
- Fixed a bug where buddies were not removed when players disconnect
- Fixed a bug where dolphins would sometimes swim upside down
- Fixed a bug where the mask overlay effect was visible in the edges of the screen in VR

New menu layout:

Looks good. Will the big fish be related to story/missions or they are there just as filler?

The HMS Tranquility site is a mess. The orca's,humpback whale and shark are all swimming through each other as well as through the ships hull. They just move in a tight circle and over lap each other. Also the top half of the ship is all black and you cannot move more than a few feet above the deck. Some sort of collision error in the code maybe.

@catfish - Thanks for pointing this out. We were able to address this in a 0.17.11 patch last week. Hopefully, you have had a chance to check out HMS Tranquility again.
