[RF] Basic Bridges - Fishing Add-On [a17]

This mod is also available for b18! Check my workshop!

This is an "add-on" to my "Basic Bridges" mod, which gives pawns the ability to catch and cook fish.

It's possible to create "fishing spots" on bridges or piers where pawns can relax and catch fish. It's also possible to build "shellfish traps" that might net you shellfish, shrimp, snails or small fish. And your pawns can now prepare sushi and various other seafood dishes.

(Is it ironic that this mod was created by someone who finds fishing to be mind-numbingly dull, and who hates seafood in any form? I think it's a bit ironic.)

How Fishing Works:

Fishing is a "Handling" job, and as such, relies on the "Animals" skill. It is prioritized below other animal handling jobs. Pawns with higher skill will fish faster, and have a higher chance of successfully catching something. Fishing spots can become depleted if overfished, and will need to be allowed to "recharge."

Fish and eels can be caught at any fishing spot, though the type of fish available varies with the biome, and eels are more common in marshes than in water tiles. Squid can only be caught in ocean tiles.

Shellfish traps will periodically catch shellfish or tiny fish automatically, without any pawn interaction. They will sometimes take a bit of damage in doing so, though, and will thus occasionally need to be repaired.

Fish can be cleaned (butchered) for meat, while squid and eels can be butchered for both meat and leather. Shellfish don't need to be butchered, but are cooked "as is."



This mod will not work unless you also have "Basic Bridges" in your mod list.

"Fishing" can safely be added to a game in progress, but if you try to remove it from a game, you will very likely make the map unplayable.

This mod shouldn't conflict with any other mods.



Most of the fish graphics were provided to me by Steam user Draegon.

The ability to fish from bridges draws both conceptually and specifically from Rikiki's "FishIndustry" mod, though what I've done here is less elaborate than, and over time has diverged rather significantly from, what's he's done in that mod.

The traditional Chinese language files were provided by Steam user Alane.



If you're a modpack maker and want to include this mod in your pack, or if you're a modder and want to use it as the basis of a derivative mod, please feel free to do so. I ask only that you let me know about it.

If you have any (helpful) suggestions for improvement, please let me know!

My mods are free, but if you'd like to buy me a Dr. Pepper[ko-fi.com], I wouldn't complain.
