Hi Divers!

Being around the net reading some information about the S.S Yongala, our first exploration wreck!
So I pick up some nice plans of the wreck that i wanted to share with you! With that you will not get lost in a water...
SS Yongala sank off Cape Bowling Green, Queensland, Australia on 23 March 1911.

It's interesting to see the the first "first class toilets" are writed, it might be a "must see"!^^
I'm not sure that we will see all the species mention on the pics, but i recognize some that i saw around the pool or during the easter eggs.

Demo a look at the new maps, I feel great, this is the first relatively large area map, for the first time to find the wreck of the trip from the city, but when I found the wreck when the heart is really excited, this ship is so beautiful.

According to the map, the location of the sinking of the ship from the St. Martin Island, a short distance but the journey is not too far away, so I'm looking forward to this adventure.

Nice lejkl. Don't they know when you put a sign that says 'Do NOT Enter' that it is just asking to be entered.

With the all time being...Yes! It's a map for a Real expedition but as we are in a video game we all do like we didn't see that! I'm sure our curiosity will receive some dangerous surprise neatly prepare by The Dev. Team...

Oh yeah, Krisper. What do they think I'm going to check out first? The stuff that I'm actually allowed to enter? No way! I'm going for the cool stuff!

Thanks for all of the pics, lejkl. I was planning on looking into it a little myself, but you beat me to it and provided all of the information I wanted in an organized fashion. I seriously appreciate it! You saved me a fair amount of time. Solid work, kind sir!

How you will begin your exploration of this wreck?

Me, I will start to explore the environment of the Yongala, swim around, observe species and the ship to see how he had been models by Dev. Like a piece of plate you like that you keep for end, I will after enter inside the wreck.
With all of that, I would like explore the wreck with people! I will prepare The Nautilus for the event!^^

Edit: always normal to share info that I looking for with the community if that infos might be is worth considering.
Glad the you appreciate!!

Or our pullover...
All in all during the next week we all get exciting and gradually more days after days!
Hope Dev will not give to us a date/day of releasing and just put it as a surprise like for the Easter eggs!

And hopefully our scooters! But I think it will take a little time for the devs to finish these

Monday 05/12/2014. 7 Days to Wait (at the maximum).
Hang on Dev, have a nice week even so and enjoy your work!

Edit: if there must be a delay for this new area it's because it's must be so no worry i think we will not worry if it had to happen , it's your game and better is a things when it's like you want than you don't want.

I think I can speak on behalf of the community and say that everyone is bursting at the seams with excitement!!!! I am so incredibly ready to jump into this dive. Curious to see the new gameplay changes, fish AI, and everything else the Dev team has been slaving away on.

From the community to the Vertigo Dev team.... Thank you so much, guys!!!

One Word : AWESOME!

Thanks you, will return after write this!

This update is really huge! Fist the menu change for a better looking and some new option appear like graphical settings. Starting by made choice : Get stuck in a pool or enjoy S.S Yongala? Of course S.S. Yongala.

Lost in the middle of the ocean, standing on a raft. you get equipement and you DIVE!

-
You get afraid or just impress by the new color (it's pretty deep donwthere, some of a dark blue),new ambient song, sharks look real. Or is Just maybe because you see fish avoid now and you decide to stop the game and get a shower... nO don't get afraid, Vertigo is just in the process to create the best diving game ever! (See the change log) and also if you press Start they offer you to take your hand and show the area.

Take a deep breath, and go down, whoa, song took you on right ambiance, it's deep where i go? (computer dive might showing the way, new option too!)

and you found it!

Alone, big, on the cold water...

I start by swimming around, discover how it is:


The ocean vegetation had taken life on the boat (plants now moove when you pass)

Swimming around the boat to observe and look the awesome work:


Starting exploration inside boat after toured the boat




-------------------------------------------------------------Engine Room :-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------First Class Toilet :--------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------bath water-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Discovering Some species around and on the wreck:




DON't GO FAR AWAY:

and you don't forget to do the tradionnal "Kiss a fish":

Amazing video game experience (don't have a rift....yet), peacefull (althougt cold in this deep water...), again i know what i follow this early access.
Keep the good work Vertigo, i like and enjoy you game you're creating!
