    So, what I wanna do is fish, while sailing. I'm using the EC client, and I got last object for my fishing pole. Now if I'm still I can use LastTarget (Or cursor target last, which is too much of a mouthful to say) but if Im sailing that doesn't work because I can't reach that water tile anymore.
    Now I had hoped that Target by Resource would work, but it won't accept a fishing pole? Whats up with that? I just wanna hit 2 buttons and sail along!

    On a side note I do use the classic targetting in the EC, I can't handle all the jumping reticles, I dunno if that makesa difference....

    Can anyone ease my burden?:violin:

    Set key for use pole, set it target cursor.
    Hit your key, click mouse button. Repeat.

    BAH! Well, thanks for the quick response, at least I know now that I'm not just being dense. I guess that makes it harder to UM fishing... no wonder fishers are such a cranky bunch

    guess again....

    That said, I have two keys, one for just "lastobject" and one for "lastobject + lasttarget", If i'm moving i just hold the mouse off the side of the boat, hold the first one and click whenever i get a cursor, not ideal and spams your journal but it works. (If theres ONE feature in UO I really really want...it's the ability to filter my journal yo not see certain messages)

    If I'm sitting still, i just hold down my keys for the second macro and fish out the spot.

    I wish fishing poles had more uses though....I'm sick of having to carry a crate of 50 of them around all the time...

    Sounds like you are destroying your poles too fast because of you holding the buttons down. Fishing poles have 120+ uses which last about 15+- minutes, so 4 poles per hour. Your trips must be really long when you carry 50 poles. ;)

    After about 16 poles my ship hold is full anyways so i have to return home.

    I just love my 200 liner UO-A macro, casting clockwise around my boat. With sailing "slow forward" you never run out of fish. As long as it is such a pain to fish i will never switch to the EC.

    Fishing is one of the very few things that actually work better with classic and uoa.

    Fishing poles should definitely be added to target by resource

    This is on Siege Perilous. Fishing poles have about 120 uses each which makes it slightly a pain to always have enough (heavy) poles on you while fishing for a couple hours.

    Everything wears out on Siege, fishing rods, hatchets, and if you're foolish enough to use your best sword for skinning carcasses you can wear that out and lose it too.
