    I think it would be cool if there was a new fishing profession, similar to mining or hunting.

    With all the lakes, pools, etc, I think you could work out a system for decay on a rod/line, fish weight, food and crafting (Jori Sushi anyone? :)).

    Given the more natural approach, I feel like it would work well into the atmosphere of Arkadia, and would help to give Arkadia more self identity through another fun and engaging activity that is different from the other planets.

    The piers are usually for boats, but can't we fish from them too? :D.

    Well we had a fishing rod ingame at some point in the past, but it was just a decoration, so we can go 'fishing' now, only we have to shoot them with a gun or hit them with a melee weapon lol.

    Moving this over to the 'Wishlist' :)

    Perhaps a sort of fishing rod attachment for the boats would be cool. Make them something more than transportation. :)

    yes there is, but just for decorating purposes, you can not actually do anything with it, but I bought it just in case :)

    Can be nice. First you can (or new people can) find worms (bait) for free walking near water, then sell worms other players only (tt value 0).

    Fishermen use worms for capture little fish, and with this little fish you can do bait for capture more big fish. Then you have loot when big fish is out water.

    Mine worms? that might be different and please don't say that fishing would be too hard to make. You can buy fishing games in dollar stores for 5 US..so the software is trivial..hehe. But the fish themselves could have a purpose, maybe food for pets? Or as fish oil for crafting?

    Yes. Still dropping too.

    Devil's Tail - an enmatter that refines into Chalmon - is really a worm. Read its description ;) And people have been mining it for ages.

    Lol I thought of this a couple years ago and figured it would never happen. It would be awesome if it did come to be though. I was just wondering what these fish would be used for?

    hehehe 4 years ive wanted to go sit down by the island off old PA and wet a line for a fish or too ,, weather its real or ingame fishing. fishin is fishin ,, it comes first.tho i do recall back in the day we used to club our fish in the streams when they jumped out to cross the cause way ,, much like a bear and trout , except this was barramundi and a cricket bat :} so if u really want to go for a fish its not quite the quiet and relaxing way of fishing but its is technicly fishing :} so get out ya noob club ,and swing away :} lol

    Well, Arkadia is tying to get MA to finish up the treasure mining system, so I don't think they are ready to work on yet another "modification" to their system. Besides, ARK, like Caly is a bit too "sci-fi" for fishing as a viable cornerstone.

    Next Island, however, with it's "tropical" style would be well suited for a fishing system.

    Perhaps they can take advantage of some of the ideas brought out in my old fishing system thread.

    Yes yes, shameless plug, I know. :D

    Hi, John.

    I read your fishing thread in PCF and look very interesting.

    Greetings.
