Yes, fishing has made it's way into pirates. All of you can finally spend hours waiting for the illusive fish to take a bite of your rod. I really love fishing games, maybe i'm just a freak, but they are awesome.



Check out my haul from a few mins ago.

Thats a load of little fish, a sawfish, a swordfish, a lobster, a flatfish and two eels. There are 23 different fish you can catch in pirates. Maybe one day someone will catch them all, that will be a most glorious day. :)

Weeeeeeeeeeee, I can't wait to show you some more catches.

Yay! But can we catch something what a "little far from fish"? You know, the old boot, treasure chest... or extremely rare Elvis Presley vinyl.  jk  :D

But really, why not? ))

Git.  :P

You're going to have to put that on the preview now.
I'm not even going to bother contemplating how you did that.

Edit: I made a Zandery kind of fish for Warhammer mod if you fancy using it. It looks like you've got enough already though.

hm. The Master Baiter has been busy, I see  ;)
Watch where you aim yer rod, matey, ye'll poke me eye out!
I only gots one eyepatch, an one good eye..

Lost the other one to your Sea Men, y'see (nah, jk, they be in RPGmod)

heh.

anyway, how 'bout an incredibly rare message in a bottle? it could..
1.start a 'scavenger hunt' quest or something. vague, riddly clues, arr! find a 2-headed, peg-tailed, frackin' monkey!
2.contain an ancient scroll. does nothing. then, one night, whilst trying to update ze capn's log, you nod off, causing a shuriken to miss yer head by a coupla centimetres! you know what that means!
3.have nothing important inside, like the deed to a Profitable Duck Farm, or something. ah, nevermind..

perhaps a usable fish..

Fishing...

Genius...

Psychotic, but genius. ::)

I guess that will more or less take care of the otherwise large food bill associated with a shipload of scurvy pirates.  Provided, of course, that one has the patience for such.  Might not be great for morale ... after 37 days of eating eel, the crew might be getting close to their limit.  (Never much cared for eel, personally.  Flatfish is not bad, but eel gets old in a hurry.)

----------------
And on that last one, you find message bottles on the beach ... there's no way to accidentally hook one.

"Look ... a message in a bottle!"
"Well, read it!  What does it say?"
"No deposit ... dispose of properly."

You dare question my fishable mystery message bottles, yet say nothing about me 2-headed, peg-tailed, frackin' monkey.

Wow.  :shock:
Ye really *have* seen quite a lot..
(I can't even tell a regular monkey from a frackin' one) :)


-Psychotic, but genius.  ::) ? That be teh FishLord,  aye.

Anywho, on the bottles, they be not of yer avrage tsingtao bottle, mate. They be..  uh.. those.. um.. jug-things, yea, with the uh.. ear thingie, yep.
Plus, they be.. mysterious.. an stuff.

Good, because Tsingtao Beer bottles don't float worth a damn.

Yeah, I've seen a lot.  Saw a picture of a two-headed monkey once ... siamese twin born in some zoo.  It didn't live long.  There's a two-headed calf wandering around somewhere in China that DID survive infancy, made the papers a month or so ago.  So, a two-headed peg-tailed monkey didn't seem as unlikely as managing to accidentally hook a floating jug with a fishing line.

Now, getting the monkey to give you the clue could be an issue.  Monkeys usually just steal your lunch.

Same is true of pirates, now that I think about it.

So, do pirates fish, or do they steal fish from people who do? Can I order my men to fish if they don't like the current grub?  >:D

Well, if you encounter a fisherman you can demand he gives you all his fish and then attack him. It might be cool if I make the fisherman troop able to catch fish randomly as well. A little like having a ship's cook!

Are those fish edible and tradeable, or do they just kind of pile up on the docks for fun?

interesting. But have I just missed how it works? It's a bit too late. I take it the fishing rod is a weapon. So you just "attack" it towards the water? :D
Great idea though.
Here's my gallery: http://merlkir.deviantart.com/

I'm now painting and drawing commissions. I'll paint portraits, pets, girlfriends, favourite characters..you name it. Send me a PM if interested ;)

Puffer is a delicasy in Japan and elsewhere, because if you make a mistake when cleaning them, you will get one of the world's most powerful toxins into the meat.  The guys who work them spend years as apprentices to learn how to avoid this mistake.  If you're not one of those guys, don't try it.

your mom- Noun.
1. a phrase frequently used to insult the target, by way of his or her mother.
2. an insult, "your mom..." preys on the fact that people commonly love and revere their mothers, making the insult particularly and globally offensive.

thank you for degrading that "insult"  (can it be called that) but anyway...

QUESTIONS

  • will you be able to fish while at sea or only at ports ect.
  • can you catch anything bigger than sailfish (i think sail fish are bigger than the screenshot shows them for

No. I was considering having a man or item that will convert your fish into fish weapons. But I think its too much hastle :P

Wasn't one of your first mods based on a bunch of fish weaponry? I forget if that was you, but I'm pretty sure it was.

Anyhow, I think turning fish into weapons is pretty unnecessary too- it's one of those gimmicks that will make people chuckle (and perhaps slap their knee), and otherwise would just take time away from cooler things, like programming flying ships.



...



Can you do that?!

Wrong, actually. I meant use them as weapons, a la Fishmod


Come on Yoshi, this is supposed to be ridiculous and fun! Fish weaponry! Flying ships!

Flying ships.. hmm..

You could have a bermuda triangle area with a flying alien spaceship that takes you to Alpha centauri?

Or ghost pirates?

Thats about all I can think of.

If this remake is going the direction of flying ships, I sure hope you make options so we can play without them.  I do like SOME elements of realism.

But can you seriously program something like that using M&B's engine?

You "can" get away with a lot ... but is it effective programming? ... probably not.  It would probably be such an inefficient block of code that the machine would barely work.

One of the fantasy mods (don't remember which one) was trying to get flying citadels ... it wasn't a very workable idea.  Possible, maybe, but very clumsy.

For Pirates, you wouldn't. But if it could be done, that would be and awe inspiring adition to a mod like Star Wars.

but what about Jim Kraken? seriously, or maybye other doable sea monsters would be cool, no offence, but it would make fishing a LOT less boring, or maybye you are dragged underwater by something like a shark, and you and it are all tangled up, together, so you cant move at all have to fight it, dead on just with blocks and well timed attacks, maybye  you could make it so the scene in which your fighting is under water, and you start above water, and fall veryt very far, so If you cant kill the shark fast enough, you hit the "ground" and die, this could represent your guy drowning, so people have to fight the shark quickly;obviously the shark could be replaced with any nuber of things, Jim kraken of course, the marmaids that 'might' go into the game, a whale?, maybye even a real kraken, annd you have to fight its tentacles or something? Just a suggestion, although I think itr'd be huwicket(wicked in my own special+R toungue)

In my opinion it would be better to spend more time on the "piratey" aspects than the fishing stuff.  Athough it's cool, I don't think fishing should be a major part of a pirate mod.  If all this fantasy sort of stuff is going to be included, how hard would it be to make two versions - one more historical/realistic and one more fantasy/movie based?
