Fish stacking?

    I looked at the fishing forum but did not see anything on this...

    I was fishing earlier today and fish are no longer stacking. The fish steaks I cut up also don't stack. Also I fished for a while and got no serpents. I have not upgraded to UO fishing so this could be a part of the problem. Do I have to upgrade to get sea serpents to spawn (or did I just have some bad luck today), and more importantly do fish and steaks no longer stack? Would upgrading straighten this up? I really don't play enough to see upgrading anytime soon.

    No, it is just 'bugged'

    Bummer... it is almost amusing how fast your backpack can max out while fishing :)

    It's only the unnamed "Fish" that no longer stack. The named fish in AHS will stack once you get to the skill level to start catching them.

    The fish that aren't stacking are probably an artifact of there being a couple dozen possible fish that low skill or lack of AHS expansion are reverting to the old fish design. The bug really needs to be fixed for those that are low level or without the booster, but if you have a booster it quickly becomes a non-issue.

    What client are you using. If you are using the CC and UOA check your setting on stacking fish.

    Frodo - it's not UO Assist...

    You can't even MANUALLY stack that still have the "A Fish" name, nor will the fish steaks from them stack with other fish steaks (even from identical fish) anymore.

    Basara is correct. The old style fish are no longer stacking and if you cut them up the steaks also dont stack. IT's most likely a bug. hehe makes it kinda hard to keep fish in the fridge.

    I have the booster and GM fishing, so I don't suffer from non-stacking fish. I do think, though, that sea serpents have become much rarer, and since I mainly fish for nets and MiBs this is a bit of a downer.

    Anyone else noticed this, or is it the revenge of the RNG?

    it's the RNG, Calliiope...

    I can sit fishing off my boat by the buoy line of the FE, and get 1 serpent every 20 or so casts, and about 2 of every 3 with a MIB. Hell, I sometimes get them fishing for shallow water fish while pulled up to the Emporium.
