Why not have a map where prehistoric dinosaurs swim. maybe some forgotten part of the earth.
And maybe people were digging a hole in the ground and they accidentally stumbled upon this place with dinos (could be a secret cave).
Sounds really cool - I especially like the 'hole on the ground' idea. Do you think the wreck itself could link to this somehow?
Sorry that I stole your idea for a bit, but my comment got some upvotes (so people like it) and I thought why not officially ask it through this subforum
Yes, it seems like the only reasonable excuse for a "wreck" being there. You could imagine that a team of scientists or diggers accidentally or purposedly stumbled on this secluded cave or unknown part of the ocean. If they make the drill machine big enough, we could be able to swim in it and check out the machinery. Since its purely fictional, the wreck could look a bit more intact, wich might also be a change from the usually rusty ships we get to swim in.
I also found a better picture of what I have in mind for the drill (something similar like this):
Yeah that's what i pictured it to look like. But don't feel you stole my idea!
That Driller is a awesome Idea. I love it :)
Be sure to vote for my idea, then!
Nice idea, I've also went in and fixed your images sizes so that they fit in the post better ^_^
Current status: working 2-10 really s*#k ^_^
Thanks! for some reason I couldnt find the right size, the last image kept its size although I changed the width
To spark the interest of the developpers a little bit, I went digging into one of my dinosaur encyclopedias and took some photos of (a small part of) the marine life in the dinosaur era. The explanation is in dutch (which the devs understand) and it also shows the size compared to humans. I can take better-looking scans if there is interest in it. Marine dinosaurs are also easier to animate since they only used their limbs for movement.
i vote for a dino level
Bloody brilliant idea!
Great ideas, but it might be too hard for the developers. I would love to see a dinosaur level, that would make up for a lot of things. You got my vote.
Thanks, my brothers. I hope that we can soon vote for this diving site, once the voting system is in place (i thought it would be on oct 1st?)
Check out this topic Piggly http://www.divegame.net/node/125839
It has the link for voting.
Ok thanks, jace!
Great Idea! Looks interesting. :)
This looks great. I vote!
Thanks mate, if I get a few more votes, we could make this diving site a reality.
I wish you Luck.
Hope in some time, we can dive in your Dive Site ;)
so far, it seems like we'll have another pirate ship again or the titanic. I dont suppose there's enough money for the titanic so I guess it'll be a pirate ship again. Lets hope I get some more votes
How would you go about generating the content for your own shipwreck? Are there tools that we can install?
No tools have been provided to create our own dive site. The only user generated content that I know about are a couple of dive suits created by Egyptsun. You can find some of the information about this here http://www.divegame.net/forum/node/119326
The mission editor used to work, but it is not available now because the development changes to the current dive sites broke many of the missions. I remember some of the old user created missions had no objectives. Instead they would be endless missions where the creator decorated an existing site for you to swim around in and enjoy. I think all of the objects used for decorating were created by the developers, but I not completely sure about that.
Egyptsun is the current active moderator here and he may have some more information for you. He checks in every onece in awhile to clear spam, but I'm not sure how often that is.
