the transmission between circling and moving is a bit clunky

Circle movement makes him go a bit far away.

Unfortunately if I reduce the turn rate any lower, he just spins around on the spot. I'll try to increase the speed of the circling animation so the transition isn't as clunky. Is this an improvement on the stationary locomotor though? If not, I'll just revert.

I suggest you have him "stationary" but hovering, floating around a meter up and down and to the sides. Then whipping with his tail would also make the shark look much more alive.

Yeah, if it's possible to make the locomotor does an acceleration into a curve/decelerate upon coming out of that would make it look smooth.

Well, I for one like it. It's quite evocative of a shark circling it's prey.

I agree. Add to the fact that sharks can't breathe while staying still, and it makes far more sense to have it not stay idle.

If I may also offer some criticism, most sharks don't just move their tails back and forth whilst swimming, their entire body glides in a...snake-like pattern. That's a poor analogy, but the only one I can think up offhand. Otherwise, I do like the circling whilst idle. Keep up the good work!

I like!

But max speed could be faster.

And while it's moving, the body should move more, I think.

I have to agree with the circling on the grounds they cannot breath and it looks cooler :D, and the transition isnt to bad, just needs tweaking!.

I agree that it should have snake-like movement. Perhaps something like the AOM Leviathan or Jourmund Elver: (for example, skip to 1:08)

Youtu.be

but besides that the circling looks great!

Is it possible to make the tail act as a rudder? It may help to ease the transition between circling and moving.
