I've made some concept 'art' for a landmark of a dead reefback as its own little ecosystem

To explain the idea, when whales die they create a 'whale fall', a place where their decomposing body landed is eaten by critters on the ocean floor, creating a tiny ecosystem and a creepy pile of giant bones as well

My related posts with awesome ideas by the commenters, some that I added to this concept pic: https://www.reddit.com/r/subnautica/comments/7l9ifm/a_whale_fall_is_where_the_body_of_a_whale_landed/

    I've been wanting some sort of mini-biome made from a giant dead creature, and this is perfect.

    This needs to be one of the first things to do post-1.0.

    I think it would be a really cool thing to see in the middle or the edge of the dunes, a Burst of life in a deadly and barren landscape.

    Or on the edges of the world, half overhanging the abyss.

    This would a fantastic, and albeit macabre addition.

    Hmm, yep... And sadly as such it's not going to happen, because they want their E for everyone ESRB rating

    Well, it wouldn't that different than the many other dead creature skeletons we see. Sure, we couldn't have bits of Reefback floating around, but just the empty shell would be no different than the skeletons in the Lost River.

    I stand corrected, I keep forgetting there is more stuff out there. Because I've only seen random flashes of it on videos by LP-ers. v1.0 is almost here so I can leave the first three zones (redgrass, green weed and save shallows :D )
