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 ;)

edible and tradeable :)

Edible being relative.  Wouldn't want to try to eat a puffer fish or something.
it's actually a japanese delicacy, but i suppose pirates aren't japanese chefs

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

I'll make it so you can fish off your ship as well. Just at sea.
Yes, you can catch some pretty big fish.

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?!

Yep, I am the creator of good old fishmod! Thats why I have so many fish models lying around and stuff.

I mean, i probably could program flying ships...but why would I want to?

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.
