[Fishing] help with sos

Discussion in 'UO Fishing and Treasure Hunting' started by Munky, Nov 14, 2009.

    I am new to fishing and am wondering about the SOS.
    Is there a way to make a course to the coordinates or do u just have to wander around until you find it.
    If there is a way could someone send a link or explain how to do so any help would be greatly appreciated

    If you have UO-Automap, you can use that for fishing up SOS. Just plug your coordinates in and set your marker.
  4. I do it manually with a map of the world with the coordinates shown around the outside edge of the map. I look at the sos and figure out where the closet land mass is that I have a rune to recall to that spot then drop the boat in the water and start fishing. I have boat control commands macros set up so I can tell the naviagator to drop or raise the anchor and go ahead slow back slow etc.. in all directions then I look at the map and figure out the path I should take to get to the sos spot. Along the way I pull up fish and kill sea serpents and check my position using a sextant. I use a macro for the fishing and have it end with a sextant reading so I know I need to reset it. Works fine for me.
