09.09.22 Aquarium default updated - fixed dirty state

Default replacement for Mr.Maritime aquarium (Pets EP) includes:

- TXMTs for glass & water
- Texture & TXMT for algae (dirty state)
- Modified mesh
New polycount: 3449 (was 3152)

I've removed the decorative wreck - it's 1024 poly, but you couldn't tell..
If you still need it in the aquarium, it's available as a separate decor item (doesn't require Pets EP)
found in Buymode/Decorative/Sculptures
Cost: 69 S

Default replacement for Pets EP Fish (7-13) comes in two versions:
Blue OR orange fish number 11 (there are six of those in the aquarium) - pick one!
Default includes meshes and three 256x512 fish textures. Fish 11 texture is 128x256.
Three fishes were made invisible.

Please note that screenshots feature my default for base game fish 1-6,
available HERE.
I've updated it with 256x512 textures so if you use an old version, consider replacing it.
512x512 textures look a bit better if you don't have full transparency antialiasing enabled in your game.

Can you help me? "PF_MrMaritime[PETS]_Aquarium_DEFAULT.package" causes pink flashing in the aquarium when it gets dirty, I don't understand why. I tried removing the file and it stopped happening, but I still don't understand why it happens, since the file has the resources for the dirty state of the aquarium.

I've tested this MTS file and indeed it's flashing pink. The one I have in my game works fine.
Not sure what happened here but thanks for letting me know, I'll update the file any time soon. default file has been updated.

Somehow I've shared a wip version of that default, not the one I use in my game. I think I used "fix TGI" on the texture inside,
or maybe on TXMT resource. Some TS2 objects seem to be more sensitive to that than others.
