A few new creatures ideas and environmental improvements I’d like to see in below zero

The first thing is like to see is some kind of prey fish for the squid sharks to eat in the deep twisty bridges, because right now I can’t figure out what they’d eat other than us, maybe a glowing red semitransparent fish to replace the random glowing red orbs that seem to float around down there. Something like a beta fish mixed with a jelly fish

The second thing I’d like to see is a chemovoric nautilus like creature in the purple vents, like maybe a turtle squid or something based on the coconut octopus

Another addition to the purple vents biome could be a large coral you can swim inside of to avoid predators maybe based on one of those jungle gym spider things

In the lay pad biome, I’d love to see some herbivores combination of a pill bug, horseshoe crab and a centipede, that puts out heat when you get close to it as a defense mechanism, they could be used as an explanation for how the lillypads live in the arctic, saying they heat up the water or something making it almost tropical there.

I’d also like to see a troll fish with access to all the leviathan sound files (mimicking leviathans to scare of predators) that would put the fear of god in the players when they hear a shadow leviathan in the shallows

Another idea might be to introduce a prey species to the glacial basin, currently the snow stalkers have no food source and it’s be nice if I didn’t have to drive my sea truck all the way back to the twisty bridges to get food other than heat plants

And my last idea I got while running into fish with my sea truck, what if there was a fish that was mostly docile but has a huge boney plated head and writhed rammed fish to stun them for food, or head-butted each other for territorial Purposes like big horn sheep do. They could pose no threat to the player while they’re swimming around, but ram the sea truck thinking it’s a competitor for their territory.

Anyway those are my ideas (though they are kind of rough) feel free to let me know what you think and elaborate on any that you like :)

    Sorry, but I think that "raming fish" can,t ex ist beacuse this kind of defense or hunt don't work in water. Maybe very large creatures like riffback could evolve such a head. Small fish are too fast (in real life) to be rammed and to glitch

    I would love to see a few creatures in and add on or below zero my first idea is lik a dolphin thing that i call a ticka and it swims around making low repeated ticking sound and its beak and tip of its tail is coated with titanium they would be defensive pnly if you provoked it and it could drop its beak and be used to make a sword it would be found in the safe shallows purple vents and lilly pads

    I think that a new land animal I would love to see in Below zero is some semi-terrestrial adaptation of the gasopod. I think it would be appropriate, because honestly, the ice needs a bit more fauna than pengwings and snow stalkers. Maybe it would be called something like gas cattle, or some other wild livestock adaptation.

    Another thing would be to make the glow grub an adult stage, maybe a glow fly? Or it could be an ice fly.

    I think it would be cool if they made a plant, maybe in the caves, that can grab and entangle you and you have to use your knife to cut yourself free before you run out of oxygen.

    I would also love to see some alien creature living in the depths that is based off of the deep sea anglar fish, its light could draw the player in since light sources are usually associated with safe areas, but, as you get closer you see a set of huge teeth rushing at you...

    Another interesting idea that could be funny: what if they made a creature that looks exactly like an outcrop except it senses movement so when you get close to collect it, it suddenly flicks open and is just like a big eyeball... a weird EYE-dear i know, but, i think it would be really creepy despite being harmless it could freak people out earlygame and it could be uncommon or even rare so that you forget about it after a while until you encounter it again, only to be startled all over again.

    Sorry, my sentence structure is horrible. I hope this made sense.

    WOULD LIKE TO FIX THIS

    1) I think it is worth correcting in the PDA in the item-geological data
    -scattered debris
    - analysis of the ship that they belong to the "Aurora" any name!!!
    since (Aurora) was shot down on the other side of the planet and the Debris in shape is far different from its structure!!
    something doesn't add up.

    2) Cryptosuchus emits a very loud roar for its size! if possible, I would like to make it quieter.


    3) and in the recipes of tools, you should add a battery. since when creating any of them, it has it in it and you can pull it out.

    4) in the cargo module o, would like to increase the slots from 12 to 18 at least. some things take up 6 or more cells and there is not enough space in it.

    5) Cryptosuchus swim all over the map except for the depth and create an impression of monotony. in the original Subnautica each biome had its own exotic fauna.


    WILL BE??

    -Will the polar map contain the Architects ' anti-space defense complex to contain the quarantine from the first part??
    even if it was somewhere far away, it would explain the wreckage on the bottom.


    MY IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS, WOULD LIKE TO SEE AT LEAST SOMETHING OF THIS.

    1) ice starfish. ( lies on the bottom can be picked up as a fish if you are in the hands of the temperature drops. it can also be placed in an aquarium)
    2) a long, blue-white, thin, spiny algae that stings when touched causes disorientation
    3) medium-sized animal resembling a walrus that can lick on an ice floe and dive (attacks when approaching)
    4) closed flower in which lives a leech bloodsucker like from the first part. only attacks when approaching a flower.
    5) the flywheel. peaceful small land animal fluffy white ball. running through the snow burrowing in snow burrows hiding from snow stalkers. ( dekorativny )


    -would also like to see a small underwater biome under the ice floes now there is just a bare surface.
    ice peaks and spires stretched to the surface and some would grow in the iceberg, at the bottom of the sea as a Central zone large fossilized corals and giant stars
    also transparent ice blocks in which there would be frozen fish adding more different algae similar to normal but different in color
    also bubble corals around which micro glowing squids will circle.


    that's it is, thank you for your attention I hope this is read. I apologize for my English

    ALL GOOD TIME OF THE DAY FRIENDS.

    AN IDEA ABOUT TRANSPORT!

    I've noticed a lot of complaints and criticism about the underwater truck.


    in its storage very little space and movement with 3 modules makes it slow even with improvement
    and when you collect it completely it is like a turtle and it is very bad everyone does not like it.
    my suggestion is as in this Subnautica: Below Zero there is a land motorcycle why not make a sea motorcycle.
    a fast motorcycle and in the endless underwater narrow tunnels and crevices where the truck can not get it will be better
    but there are also disadvantages it does not have any protection for the hero and really small cargo Cabinet and only 2 modules for improvement as well as on the polar Fox

    This is perhaps the best idea for transport I've come across.
    Well thought out and it ties in with the tech and the principles of balance - get more speed, lose more armor.

    GOOD DAY TO ALL.

    1) I would like the developer to add the ability to scan and create.
    Manufacturer of first aid kits, and glass cylindrical shelves, such as in Margaret's greenhouse.


    2) as well as more realistic depth interactions on the character.
    and the is bathyscaphe explodes. but nothing happens to the hero.
    they would have come up with a suit for greater depths.

    This is actually called: 'SeaGlide'. :wink:

    The only difference is that you don't have to hop on/off the SeaGlide and you do not have to pack it to carry it around. The devs could change this of course and make the SeaGlide more a standalone vehicle, but I actually like it the way it is. I'd rather want to replace the SnowFox with a special power armor that improves the mobility of the player (higher jumps, maybe some short-term jetpack (see astroneer)).

    GOOD DAY TO ALL.

    IDEAS FOR THE GAME

    1) Make places with thin ice and the possibility of falling under it if you walk on it

    2) weather conditions hail caused damage to the player.
    there is such a hail the size of an egg in life such a hail would kill a person.
    I would like the game to bring this moment closer to realism.

    3) more costumes and masks for diving to different depths for the player.

    4) the creation of additional modifications to the Seatruck .
    (increased strength, energy shield, engine strengthening, expanded energy capacity).

    5) the machine or the recipe for the manufacture of dry rations

    6) the ability to give not only titanium but another resource from the wreckage that has already been studied.

    Hi!
    Have a design idea for Marguerit's Greenhouse. Perhaps it can be braided inside by giant vines, which, due to the fact that they have been forgotten for a long time, have gone out of control.

    Something like this. Sorry if not clearly drawn.

    What about a large flying creature, possibly even a Leviathan?
    My idea is a big, intimidating creature that's design is inspired by the Pteranodon.
    It would likely live/nest near the warmth of the hot springs.
    It can dive down to surprising depths to hunt its favourite food.
    Can occasionally be seen flying around waters near the island and casts a large shadow when flying over you.
    Its prey and their bones (maybe Brute Sharks) can be found near its nest, showing just how deep this thing can dive.
    Survives cold by staying near hot springs and Thermal Lily's when it's not hunting, and, maybe it's underside/belly could be a yellowish colour from it's environment (hot springs)
    Too big to fit in caves but it's silhouette or shadow can be seen standing in the cave entrance - watching you...
    and when you see the dark silhouette of this creature watching you, its eyes could reflect the reddish light coming from the Thermal Lillie's.
    Because it can fly, dive, and walk on land, maybe, to make it a little less OP, it will not hunt you like other Leviathans but will attack if you get too close or stare at it for too long... it stares at you from cave entrances out of curiosity or because its keeping an eye on you, making sure you don't get too close to its nest.
    The only reason it will hunt you, possibly across the entire map or most the map is if you steal its egg?
    It has a long tail to balance out the weight of it's large head and to help it swim when hunting. When it closes its mouth some of its longer teeth stick out like a crocodile.
    It could be called Terallien and here is a rough drawing i made:

    Nicely done ive made a few creatures but my drawing ability is mediocore but i think its a cool concept maby a few more details like sise or to scan abilities like a double scan

    There is a creature idea. This is a small fish similar to an earth catfish. It can stick to stones, base walls and debris. Biomes: Arctic Kelp Forest, Lilypad Islands and Mercury IIpusbsyydwaxk.png
