He, he, better learn to drive that boat, JR,..repair is expensive.
Can't wait to try ANYTHING new you create, it's fun and challenging.
I"ll check in every now and then to see what's going on.

Thanks Cutch.
Sorry it has taken so long to write a second game. My contracting work has to come first since it is how I pay my bills.
But I am slowly getting things done and I really like the Unity game engine - should produce a nice looking game.

Nice! How'd you pull that wreck off, JR? One would think the bow would be up on the rocks and the boat would be facing the other way?

Sorry, I'm new here, is the boat sim a new game, an expansion to current fly sim or a flysim 2.0?

I'm relatively new to fly fishing in the real world, and I love this game, too, really helps fight off the cabin fever in the off season!

The boat is for a new salt water fly fishing game I am developing.
Hope to get some work done on it over the holidays....

Will the new game have tides? In the few occasions I've gone S.W. fly fishing, understanding the tides seems to be the most important factor in where you find fish (or even if you will find fish).

Hi Bill,
Hope to have tides - the graphics part is easy, the fish AI part sounds hard...

In my limited experience saltwater fishing. . . I've noticed fish tend to follow the (moving) boundary of a tide (where tidal and non tidal waters meet) and specifically they will hang in places that funnel the bait fish (if they can). Basically the fish let the water do all the work and go along for the ride. (Of course, this applies only to bays/rivers)

That might help with the A.I. side of things it essentially turns finding into a comparatively simple matter of topography and hydraulics. But again that complicates things on the mechanics/and graphics side of thing since you would have to have a way to distinguish tidal boundaries and make the identifiable to players. One of the strangest things I've ever experienced was riding in my father in laws boat and having it pushed 15 miles up stream on the Kennebec River when the tide came in. Of course, tides in Maine can be a pretty extreme example.

I know you're busy with other projects, but have you any projected time table for the release of the new game? Or, demos, or beta versions, or anything of the kind? Keep up the great work!

Sorry no timetable. I am juggling a couple of contracts right now, but hopefully work will lighten up in a couple of months.
