Ok, did anybody else see this?

I was in the Funhouse (and, off topic, what's that camera doing there?), and I went up to the balcony with the telescope, when I looked out onto the lake and saw a boat shaped shadow floating down the lake! :shock: I tried to grab a shot of it, but my KI told me I was full, and so, I was too late to catch it! What was that thing?! Did anybody else see that?

Thanks!

According to the game files, it's a fish or something like that. A very, very big fish. It used to swim around in previous incarnations, but I think in MOULagain it's disabled in most neighborhoods.

It's called a senomar, a whale-like creature living in the lake. There's an artist rendering of it in the back of the Prima Offical Game Guide to Uru CC. Sorry, I couldn't find the pic online or I would have posted a link to it. Tis an impressive beast, thought. Trust me.

yes, there is both a fish and a boat. what i saw was distinctly a boat. the forecastle was quite apparent. i've seen the fish too. only in the funhouse though.

oh, and about the camera. that was spawned early in the funhouse's history and i guess they never got rid of it. from what i gather it was a visual representation of a live virtual cam feed to a webpage that one of the DRC fella's (Laxman?) set up. i may not be clear on this. i know tanshin was trying to rig up something similar one time i was there. i think they mentioned it then but i may not recall correctly.

Both the boat and the fish used to show up in earlier incarnations of the game. They just hadn't been enabled in MOULa.

D'Lanor posted a picture of the boat and fish in a different topic: It's hidden in a spoiler tag in the second post on this page:

Thanks for the link HenriMikel! What I saw was, most definately, a boat! :)

One thing confuses me about the Semonar though: if Veovis and A'Gaeris poisoned the lake, how did a giant whale, or anything really, survive? It seems to me the Semonar would have to be reintroduced! :idea:

Thanks!
