Well, it should be a little bit more realistic, you should be able to not get just one fish. Maybe Salmons and such?

Maybe crabs?
You should be able to catch a sea monster which attacks you and gives experience.
It would stop afk people fishing if they had to worry about each catch ^^

Sounds fun, wondering, is there any delay between each cast?

Yours,

Nope, at least not on testserver 0.2.0. Some guy managed to make a cheat making it possible to fish from any position on the map as long as there is water on the same floor-level... doesn't matter how far it is from your current position. Got a screenshot where you see a lot of "fishing" at the same time, caused by this guy ;)

He only wanted to demonstrate he is able to hack the game. Applied some minutes before as security manager, because he knows how it works. Forgot his name, tho. You cannot see him on the screenshot.

Here it is (no, Komaster is not the hacker ;))

I totally agree with the ideas of getting different type of fishes and even random encounters while fishing. :)

EDIT: Of course these encounters should be somehow controlled so they are near the player's level (it would not be nice if a random newbie "fishes" a giant squid or a hungry sea snake and gets instantly killed :p). Lower levels could happen to get a frog,a salamander, or some other amphibian creature caught, while higher levels could make some more mythical creatures appear.
Also, there could be some kind of "area control", to make sure you wont get a sea product out of some tiny river :P

Glad you like the idea :)
Nimrodel, you can actually fish from other floor levels.

Komaster ish teh haxx00rz!!!!


Well, nice idea!
Also it would bring some fun to them game (and I'm not kidding) if there could be a probability about 1/1000 of "fishing" stuff like leather boots, banana skins, any trash, or some valuable rare items (those could have like 1/10000 probability).

I would surely laugh if I fish a boot. Haha.

Well, it would be nice to have a security manager wouldnt it? :P
Or are we going to get inspired by CIP's almighty anti cheat meassures? =/

I think they though of that already, since they had one for awhile.

And to "prevent" botters all the GMs should have some sort of "invisibility spell" to be able to hid themself and sneak up to a reported botter and watch them for awhile ;)

Agreed 100% with Edrahil and Seydg :D These ideas really rock.


@Xariov: Seriously? Going to try that out on the next test :) Thanks for the information


@Fawenah: As far as I know Gecko is their security manager ;)

Gecko? :o Hmm thats a member of the staff I missed! I have to blame it on I just woke up and in quite a rush to "wax" my boat before work...so wth are Im doing here? :P

On topic again, I would love to se some "random" fishing, e.g. diffrent kinds of fish, som "trash", random monster encounter (should get harder in the more "tough" areas) ;)
