== Fishtanks Modders Resource ==

This is a modders resource only. Included are fishtanks with animated fishes meant to be used as decoration in mods.

Here is what you get:

2 Fishtanks (metal and wood)

5 Fishes (see screenshots)

6 Animations

To see the fishes in action enable the fishtanks.esp and type 'coc fishtanks' in the console. This will bring you to a cell with two fishtanks I set up for demonstration purposes.

== Modding with the fishtanks ==

The fishes are a bit tricky to place since the space in the fishtanks is limited and the animations are fixed. Here is a guideline on how to use the different animations, it is also recommended to have a look at my esp to get a better understanding on how to place the fishes.

You can press the 'havok' button in the CS to see the animations while modding.

All animations turn to the right, except for the 'CirclesLeft' animation. So make sure there is enough room (about half of the fishtanks width) in the appropriate direction.

Fast/Medium/Slow

This is the standard animation in three different speeds. The fishes will swim from one end of the tank to the other and turn around there. You need to place the them at the center of the tank or they will swim out of it as they use nearly the whole length of the tank.

Lazy

A slow animation where the fish stops from time to time that uses only a part of the fishtank length. You have a bit more freedom using this one, but the fishes should still be close to the center.

CirclesLeft

The fish slowly swims a narrow circular path. Doesn't need much space.

Sleeping

The fish floats and stays (almost) in place. Only very minor up/down left/right movement/rotation to give it a more realistic look. You can place this animation everywhere in the tank.

Decoration

Unfortunately it is not possible to add seagrass/weed to the fishtanks. The alpha properties on the tank will make the grass vanish when viewed from a certain angle. Same goes for all stuff that has alpha properties on it.

I also recommend using a blue/green ambient light and sound effect just like in my esp.

Hope you like it and make some mods with it!

== Permission ==

This is a modders resource and you can use all the things included without asking me as long as you don't sell anything. Credits would be nice though.
