Makeing Fishing More Viable.

    haveing a gm fisher i really believe that there should be more types of catchable fish. there should also be more types of items that we can fish up. and when fishing up a treasure chest there should be more types of loot. sure the special fishing nets, sos ,the white pearls and the ship wreck items etc. are nice but lets have some other rare loot too added. i also believe that there should be more special artis added that you can only get using the fabled fishing net and killing the white kraken. there should also be several differnt types of sea monsters that can be fished up from time to time besides sea serpents each with there own special types of random loot to keep us comming back for more. [/list] another thing that i would love what if theres a very rare chance that a gm fisher can fish up or summon a pirate ship with useable cannons and special rare random loot & treasure and pirates in it. our goal would be to defeat the pirates with in a certain amount of time if the time runs out the pirate ship disapears and we lose our chance at getting there ship the pirates should be very tough to keep this ship more rare but not impossable for one player. if we defeat the pirates within the time limit we can board there ship with useable cannons take the treasure & loot and take the pirate ship to land and dry dock it and then it should be useable like any other ship except it will have useable cannons now i think that would be cool. [/list] i also believe that these ships should come in differnt forms and sizes some should have more then one deck. and one last thing there should be more varied types of fish that we can catch and put in our aquariums ,more aquarium rewards , our aquariums should get an upgrade and be able to hold more then 30 fish /rewards and for pete sakes lets make those aquariums animated in both 2D mode and KR mode i would love to see all those fish at once swimming around and interacting with each other in my aquarium.
     
  2. I agree 100% that there should and could be more done with the seas and fishing. There is a ton of unused water area and plenty of people have been asking for new fishing/pirate/water related content for years now.


    I also wouldn't mind seeing the chances of an artifact dropping from the Leviathan being changed a little. First a "chance" to get an ancient sos then another "chance" to get the drop. The odds are against us from the start. [​IMG]

    1 in 1000 chance to fish something NEW UP.

    Of the NEW
    it can be 1 of anything every giving out as an arty, from NPCS, or events.


    It would make fishing fun.

    1 in 1000 to fish up something new
    Well over 1000 items to randomly be selected.


    That means a bunch of garbage but heck there is a chance for anything.

    Oh the should be fished up in a decayed chests that comes in different wood or rustng ore colors. This way atleast you get a box.

    I agree. Give our fishers some excitement and a reason to fish again. Even something like differently colored paintings, special hued pillows, stacks of gold sovereigns..

    Well, cant stop the game for others cause of scripters. Can we.

    Simple:
    When you get a NEW ITEM.
    A box appears. You fished up a new item. Would you like it? Please read letters on the chest. A box with 6 letters all bent etc show up. You have to type them in to get your prize.

    It times out in 3 minutes.

    Scripters are done. EXCEPT FOR THE BRILLIANT SCRIPTERS. The ones that can do ita ll.
     
  8. I'd like to see the chance that you can fish up a ghost of a pirate who kills you for disturbing him and steals your boat.

    Jk, of course, but some piratey thing would be good.

    I mentioned this on a post a while back:

    It would be really cool to add different colored "a big fish" with various colors and a really rare one with irridescent multi colored scales. That would look really nice mounted above my fireplace.

    And, making the mess of small fish work liek Rose of Trinsic petals for the stat-boosters (+5 to related stat, for five minutes, stackable with magic), and equal to the total refresh for the stamina-filler version. And, make them stackable within type.

    1-2% for 15 seconds is pathetic.

    I agree, its nearly the same overhaul needed, which treasure hunters need to get motivation again.

    I agree.

    I would love to see more cool fish types fished up, more *new* paintings fished up, so much seas so little to do out there or same old same. Aquariums and their fishes and rewards all can be MORE. Our ships can be more or new types given esp. now with a cannon as a vet reward would love new ship types *with cannon* perhaps a small *cabin* to be our galley and sleeping quarters while out at sea, mysterious caves with new fished up gems or rewards that perhaps fishers can enter by *skill* gm fishers get into the coolest fishing caves and can fish in em, also making more USE of all our islands out there especially in the trammel felucca waters could all use uplifting facelifting reasons to sail to those islands etc. maybe one new huge cave be like fishing in the *lost continent of Atlantis new weaponry or parts fished up from the debris of long lost civilisation, or make new *rubble* albeit useful from Magincia magical items for war fishing and sailing found out at sea by fishers esp gm fishers off the coastline of Magincia.

    I think ship pirate wars should be MORE include more fel side, let em gun each other down be pirates fire cannons cause damages to each others ships fel side, have wars, epic sea battles etc. as pirates and/or fishers, or both, on water off their boats, etc.

    Heck I would even settle for just new paintings from a shipwreck ..other new items from a ship wreck, etc. more creative thinking for developments on use of seas and islands sailing fishing.

    To make UO more realistic, they should really add a one in a thousand chance to fish up a shopping trolley.

    Yeah, they should definately add some more content for Fishing/Piracy. Last time i killed someone when i was on a boat was about 6 months ago when going to check the Terra Sanctum champ in Fel. Some archer runs his boat into mine, then starts trying to fire at me. Unluckily for him though, i was on my Nox Mage and dropped a few Poison Fields on his boat, completely covering it, he was completely screwed, even if he would of killed me, my DP Poison Fields still would of dropped him.

    But yeah, i'd like to see useable Cannons that actually did damage like 35 damage to all players on the enemy ship, but only useable once every 30-45 seconds, and require ammo like Explosion Potions, Bola Balls and a new Alchemy craftable, Black Powder. Take 5-10 seconds to reload the cannon and if you're hit during then, it disrupts the reloading.
    Another thing they need to add to all ships is make the Cargo Hold able to hold ALOT more weight, 400 stones isn't much, hell, most of my char's can carry more than that.
    Make Ships take longer to Decay too, like a month.

    Also would like to see different types of ships, like Sloops, Brigs, Galleons and Frigates, all with different Speeds/Size/Cargo Hold Capacity/Player Capacity. The larger the ship, the more expensive it should be, like a Galleon and Frigate costing about 500k. I wouldn't mind having a Ship of the Line, lol (Anyone who's played the new Sid Meier's Pirates will know what i'm talking about, if you haven't played it, then it's basically like the Flying Dutchman on the Pirates of the Carribean movies, a complete juggernaut of destruction.)

    Would be cool to have a rare, Pirate Frigate spawn in a random place in the Ocean, and only stick around for a few hours. If player's successfully kill all the Pirates on it, including the uber tough Pirate Captain (Like the one they had on Napa during the Pirate Events right before SE came out), they can loot the Cargo Hold of it's tons of Gold/Gems, and take the boat to shore and dry-dock it.

    But anyways, if you're looking for Piracy, you might wanna check out a game that's coming out, Darkfall, here's a video that has some Piracy going on in it.

    *Sighs as she adds a post to her 90045th thread begging for improvements to fishing*

    Please listen to these folks...even small improvements will be met with gratitude. Just a simple change of the pre-chest shipwreck loot would add value to the old stuff (if eliminated) and the new stuff as it come son the market.

    Of course, lots of the other ideas are cool too!

    The OP is in my head. I was thinking of pitching the pirate idea for a long time. We need some red npcs on the sea to keep the sea life exciting. Im tired of these sea serpents showing up angry with empty pockets.

    I wish they would have went ahead with the Pirate expansion instead of SE... maybe now they will at least add in some of the goodies Leuro had in mind.

  20. Years ago i made the suggestion that we have a ocean champion spawn. Give use for those special colored nets and also make fishermen and PvMrs work together.

    then next suggestion i would make is that MIBS not only pull up what they do now but that also pull up resources. They should pull up a set amount of Iron and Wood as it is a salvage operation. The amount of wood and iron should correlate to the level of the chest 1-3 and the rate of salvage should equal that of someone chopping wood or mining ore.

    Sign me!...... I'm definatly for NEW paintings, new ideas ANYTHING to improve the draw to the seas. (love a new boat)..... I would like to see all sorts of things.... like WHALES ones that swallow your ship.. get sent to some place where you have to solve some puzzle of sorts or something to get out..... Or kill the beasty.... Have him "cough" you up..... and perhaps you get some special "treasure" from it.. dunno but always thought it would be really cool.. or you "rescue" a damsel in distress... gaining in compassion if you take her to a dock.

    I would LOVE to see something done with all this unused water area. Underwater town maybe? Island that you HAVE to sail to in order to get to it. Ship to ship PVP. Underwater vehicle? (lol) Swimming mounts. Farming areas on or under the water? A new race of fishman you can become.
     
  31. My only motivation for why I fish is because I want to see my own seahorse drop into my pack.

    I fish because I'm trying to get the reward glasses you can get by donating fish. It take something like 3.2 million fish steaks to have enough points to get them. Only about 120k to go!!!

    Stop wasting your time posting, I don't think UO has any programmers left to do it... If you noticed ALL changes being made to UO are pretty much changes people running emu shards can do with their own servers. I am pretty sure the programmers have left the building and only people left are like game masters and such.

    Ain't never going to happen seas will stay empty. Ooo but how I wish it wasnt every zillions mibs I actually get a aos.


    O MAN and house boats would be really cool [​IMG] to bad it ain't neva gonna happen ;***(

    there we go, shiver me timbers , i DO like that .

    lets have some pirate ships. make them fel only . (cant do any real pirating in tram rules) also make them extreemly tough to get . i dont want to see everyone on a pirate ship in 3 weeks . even if it did take a few poeple to kill, it would be an excuse to get your friends to come allong . a uo captains life is a lonely one.

    like, if you are out fishing alone you'd have a chance to run away from one , gather your crew and go back and take it. sure lets make it run away if you dont kill it in time , but lets at least have a chance to gather a crew.

    "im tellin ye mates , the black rose attacked me right here . i wrote down the coordinates , shes gotta be round here somewhere ... avast ! there she be off the port bow" (maybe find a use for a spyglass in all this)

    i used to roal play a pirate in the early days (before everyone went to trammel)
    now days i dont even bother to play my pirate . sos loot is garbage and everyone has 2 dozen of each of the existing shipwreck items already.

    lets get some real booty in here and get it in fel . give poeple a reason to go there.

    maybe if you want to give trammel folks something to do we could have captain crunch attack and shoot flaming crunchberries at you.

    arr !

    seriously tho you want to have some npc pirates attack in tram that would be cool for the kids ,maybe get some special loot like random colored sail fragments. (what self respecting trammie wouldnt love a blaze sail ?) maybe have it so the ship sinks 10 minuits after defeat in tram.
    but leave the only chance to actually capture a pirate ship in fel .we need more vict ... i mean, players in fel.

    id realy like to see a pirate flag or a skull and crossbone design for the sail , but again those should be fel only for the brave seafarers.

    other than whackin the occasional scripter theres nothing left for an old salt to plunder.


    edit = heres a thought . maybe we could have some npcs who want to haul goods to a port somewhere in fel. like npc escorts but youd have to haul an imaginary cargo from one fel port to annother, but only by boat . it could be quite profitable giving folks a reason to run the fel seas . you wouldnt even have to fight if you didnt want, just run like hell and beat your attackers to the guard zone for the win.
