Sea or Land Rod Fishing:

Mod now uses the Vanilla code for fishing with added chance for big fish and different treasures

Sea or Land Trap Fishing:

Traps are removed for now until I fix things

Sea Shell digging:

* To dig out shell you need to be in sea water low depth and have a digging tool in hand, prompt should come up.
* Shells can be cooked for maximum nutritional value.

Known bugs:

* Languages translations may not be complete (send me translations!)
* Backpack holding animation needs replacing

Great idea if you like Sushi, but being unable to cook the fish (on Expansion) is a deal breaker for me. Still a really cool idea though, be great once sorted.

@SF362 I second that!

really hope you update the mod, thinking the people on my server would really enjoy this (also compatibility with expansion would be nice)

This mod is very cool. I even wear the clothing instead of patrol gear. Great stuff buddy. Only little thing was I could not boil the Northern Pike. That could be my own fault though. :steamhappy:

did anyone adapted this mod for namalsk fishing without worms?

@ZeRoY I have done some testing with FishingZ and cooking still works, although the fillets from your fish will not go into the smoking slot on stoves.

Also, it is still not compatible with Expansion, with Expansion also on the server the fillets can't be cooked, you can keep them boiling/baking for an hour and they are never ready (or burnt).

Is there something they need to change on their end or can you fix it?

Also, I fished from the sea for more than an hour and I never ever caught a salmon. The ratio mackerel vs cod was something like 10/1 (and a lot of junk too ofc...)

Don't know how interested you are in developing the mod further, but maybe you could add a config to adjust chances of catching fish, what fish you get and possibly what items you can get when you get junk?

Anyway, love the mod!
