to add to it a bit... freebie activity to add to finding dung/rocks might be gathering worms, and other 'bait' for fishing...

Having another use for nutrio bars could really hurt either.

Yes please, bring in fishing as an activity to do when peds are lowish to hunt, mine or craft.

Something to do while we wait for our next deposit time :)

Addition to fishing ideas ... Thought storming contribution

Some stuff to add from the past for fishing,

One possible sample idea of a pier leading out to a piered mega stadium:

pier1_470x302.jpg


^^ Let's complete this picture.

The water under/surrounding the stadium on Treasure Island.

Surrounding waterfront & lake perimeter has some nice scenic development work done to it to make it more presentable.

The mega stadium is connected via pier or televators (if hovering/suspended) to the waterfront estate pathway.

Piers also extend from various points around the lake's perimeter go out into the lake offering the opportunity for participants to do some .... FISHING !

Link > https://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/wishlist/173302-fishing-complete-system.html#post2209224

Let us not stop there ...

Participant HP modified bonuses from consuming your refrigerated & cooked catch adding functionality to both Omegaton Friges and Stoves in estates.

Link > Fishing TCS - Estate cooking appliances & consumption of HP bonus Fish

All things which are not too difficult to develop and add to Calypso which would boost both participation & economic activity, socialising with others nearby (while fishing) and add to the entertainment value of 'the game'

Well there is something to think about guys,
Have fun.

Since the conversion to PCF, the links in the above quoted post got screwed up - Search is not my friend.

Not a bad find. I'll admit I havnt done much research on this idea myself. Im sure however it has been explored through various avenues in the past. Treasure Island City would feel more like a city with something like this. Right now its a bit desolate.

I love your idea in the OP btw, I think it is fantastic.

So much could be done with fishing in this game to get newcomers in the door ;)

This is a great suggestion. I did in fact write design specifications for a fishing system about a year ago while I was still writing platform systems, maybe some of the ideas from the two plans can be combined.

Keep in mind that an implementation of this is a long, long, time away. Most likely over a year.

People like you only brought and keep bringing catastrophical ideas in this game. Thats why PE stands where it is today.
Since i enroled here i knew 3 professions: 1. hunter 2. crafter 3. miner Now u wanna introduce the 4th- fisherman.
In few years were gonna have to accept pimps outside town walls and garbage people who clean towns or who knows what.
Just play other games and not give so many stupid idea to nowadays devs, u already see where we are atm -90% whining for loosing when few years ago everybody could live a nice life here with a bit of knowledge.

Dont dare to neg rep me cuz u know im right and you are dreaming

Proffessions ... let's see.
4. Sweat
5. Colour
6. Mentor
7. Space Pilot
8. Action Shark
9. PvP Hunter
10. Tamer (on hold, I know)
11. Dung/Fruit/Stone Walker
12. Textures
13. Land Owner
14. Event Creator
15. Scanner

Why bring it done to only three?

And threatening with neg rep ... it is that I don't give anyone a neg rep or else you would have gotten one.

Great idea about the fishing! Keep it simple. Keep it lowcost.

:):wtg::)

Wow! I would have missed this had a disciple of mine not pointed it out to me. This is really great to hear. I personally dont mind that a system might take 1+ years to implement. Good things are worth waiting for, and broadening the new player experience is definitely a good thing.

Cheers Kim. Your activity on these boards is most welcome. ;)

I have waited since 2009 to hear someone from MA say "maybe someday you can fish"

I am happy...not enough to not log into world of warcraft to get my fishing fix. but its something.

Not a "maybe" anymore.....Recent interview with KIM he explained Fishing will be a profession in EU and a difficult one to master which says allot to claim it to be difficult to master so early on ;) Defo seems to be at more than just "lets chat about it" stage ;)

The answer came about after he was asked about the Existing Fishing rods we have in EU....So finally a use for them and why not ;)

Oh....bump for this "to be" new profession.....

I still wonder if this was a joke. I like more professions, but can't imagine fishing with your armor and laser gun next to you. May be some hi-tech fishing with bombs or lasers, but the ordinary fishing :scratch2: hard to imagine that

Maybe something like mining....where you cast/drop the line/hook (like ammo from tt) and the bait being amps LOL...dont catch an actual virtual fish, but rather that you loot something on a hit like with mining. A beacon is left to mark the spot and you need to reel/extract the fish/loot with your fishing pole (decay)...

So my existing fishing rod becomes a mod pole ? lol Damn well better have a use seeing they are the original poles :)

High-tech fishing would not be with bombs and lasers, esp not fishing where you want to eat the result. Its not like you really want to fire a high power laser underwater anyways.

High-tech fishing would be adaptive trawlnets that only catch the fish you want or fish traps that lure the correct fish in. Using submersibles would also remove a bunch of issues. But I'm not sure how you would integarte this into game.

Something that really ought to come with fishing is oyster diving - the analogue of stone / fruit walking on land.

We are looting guns and armors from inside animals and you can't eat some bombed fish. Where is this world going :laugh:

edit: this is my post Nr 888, wont post for few days now :) to save the number

So you're saying there won't be people enjoying fishing as a sport in the future? :silly2:

In the game or IRL? Both ways people will enjoy it. I just don't know how it will fit the sci-fi in the game. Imagine Darth Vader over a lake fishing

Why wouldn't it fit in? People (that do it for sport or fun) do not fish that differently from how they did it 1000 years ago. I'd imagine that the same way we have evolved from using the bait they did 1000 years ago to using special synth bait and rods with enhanced strength, in the future they may be using some kind of "sonic bait" that lures the fish with sound waves, or something like that, along with much stronger and lighter rods and lines.

What happens when I hook a Levi? Will there be cut the line option available because I know my gun won't kill the thing else I'd be swimming down there hunting them :p

But if I had to make a guess fishing will be nothing more then mining in the water, different poles for different depths, instead of probes you get lures, need to have fishing line etc... You get mats for crafting most likely new bp's coming out as well. Just more stuff to juggle to mix and match to craft stuff so you keep putting more ped in the game to do these activities.

I wish it would be more also but I will not hold much hope for that, been let down to many times in the past to have much hope, it all is just grinding for mats no matter how you look at it I think.

I would be very interested in at least an attempt to land one of those big fish at the island near PA.

why does evrything allways have to do with Lootable PVP ... not everyone like that. So if fishing, then please without lootable, exept at the knowing lootable pvps we have.

Well some small places in the water can become pvp looted , most wont be lootable.
I wish for more profesions and use of material that we have.
Boats no real use , gunnerboats no real use and so on.

But they ever stick a few fishing rod mounting on my gunboat ill be happy too.

And aswell dont think only about urself there pvp and nonpvp peeps in here so keep them both happy.
