    I was trying to set up a macro in uo assist to lay 50 crab nets but can't seem to get it to work properly.
    Anyone built one that works that would like to share?

    I've never used a macro, tried, but it wasnt efficient.

    The easiest is just using the Last Object macro in UO and using Forward/Stop Commands to your ship.

    50 is a good start to get familiar with your crabbing, but I found it best to do 150 lobster traps in a straight line.

    I lose about 30-35 traps per run doing this method. You just move forward, setting your traps. Then you go all the way back to the beginning and harvest them. Doing this yields 3-5 crabs/lobsters per trap. The great thing is, when you get overloaded, the traps just fall to your feet onboard the ship. Takes about 15 minutes from setting to completing your harvest.

    Put a few containers in your hold to empty your crabs into and you'll be rocking em out no problem. Will be a good idea to stock up on 500-1000 traps for a good amount of runs.

    Happy Fishing!

    I use a uo assist macro for placing traps only. i have not been able to make one to pick them up.On a Garg shiip you can stand on the aft cannon spot and place 4 traps in a row. i place around 150 traps in a row ,then go back and d-click em to pick them up.As above post stated you will lose some traps,but the difference will be the Traps you so pull up will be stuffed full up to 3-4 things per trap by the time you are done.Hope that also helps you.Ohhh the traps need to be at your FEET for the macro to work, NOT in the hold.Ship is moving port to starboard for this to work and have macros for right one, right one.takes 2 moves one spot each to be able to place next row of 4
