    I love this action for lumberjacking and mining, yet for fishing there is still a lot of unnecessary clicking involved.

    I think it should not be very complicated to implement, so please devs, consider it for the next EC patch.

    As I feel I'm not alone with this request, I made this a poll :)

    Thanks for doing this. I'm sure this has been brought up many times before. I hope that something will be done this time.

    with mining and lumber jack there is a target by resource button you drop tool into and whn you press it it attempts to use the nearest resourse square of the right type
    in cc you use target by area i believe its called

    I always used UOAssists "target relative position" for that. It bugs me that this is the one thing from UOA I cannot reproduce with the EC.

    The idea of 'target by Resource' for fishing gets a "HELL YES!" vote from me.
    This is probably the #1 most important thing we fishers should have.

    I voted yes just to help the cause.....Couldn't really care less since I don't fish, but I figure there is no harm in having it so its easier for all you guys who do :p

    Agree but this also leads to the ability to just sit here

    and not actively click anything and fish for hours.

    Og course you would have ot watch for the errant serpant or two but have asked fir this before, voted for it now and HOPE it gets imnplemented.

    We have black powder in the game now. Mining and fishing could be helped with explosives. As would shape charges for lumberjacking. Easy should have risk. Others can snatch up what is scattered about. Making the explosive tools can die on a fail. Using the bombs can also lead to OooOOOing all the way to a wandering healer. Mother Nature could be woken from her slumber sending minions of pain to those lonely explosive users.

    Re: Agree but this also leads to the ability to just sit here

    Right now you can make a long macro and use "target Last" to fish hands free for long lengths of time so this addition (target by resource) wouldn't affect it either way.

    What 'target by resource' would do is allow us to troll fish on our boats.
    You can do this in CC with UOA (target relative) but not possible in EC until fishing poles get the 'target by resource' option.

    ...

    Although I never had much luck with TbR in mining (I like a more manually targeted set of macros), I see no reason why it wouldn't be helpful/useful for fishing where location isn't nearly as much of an issue.

    So yes, throw it into the system!

    Well, I just want to fish with a single keystroke while my boat is moving. If you found a way to do this - would you please share it with us?

    This is exactly why i even registered here (this is the kinda official UO forums, right?!)

    I don't understand why this does not work for fishing! Pleeeaase! Make this work! Fishing sucks so hard when compared to mining and lumbering!

    if im not mistaken, you cant do it with UOA anymore either.

    seems to me last time i went out fishing i couldn't get it to work anymore.

    so its not just the EC that dorked, the 2D doesn't do it anymore either.

    so we are both dorked!

    ill go log on to verify, but i know i had one guy i scrolled up and i was gonna go work him up and realized that my UOA wouldn't work anymore, talked with a guildmate in TS and he said the same, so i just packed the boat up and went home, hehe, beans if im gonna play the clicky clicky fish game for hours!

    Actually, what happened is that they changed something back around the time the SA client was released, that screwed up Target Relative.

    Target Relative Macros that existed before the change have to be replaced with new Macros - you can't fix them simply by editing the old ones, but have to rebuild the Target Relative ones from scratch.

    Otherwise, yes, Target Relative still does work in UO Assist.

    I dunno, but it's a pain in the neck.

    Probably should submit that as a bug.
