  1. Colon Blow
    Configuration File:
    Players can use Spear, Bow or Crossbow to fish up raw meat from Rivers and Open water areas. Jabbing, Throwing or Shooting Water gives players a chance for a successful catch. Bonuses are granted depending on time of day, quality of weapon, what you wear and have on you. By default, there is a very small chance to pull up a Tier 3 loot crate. argg...buried treasure mateys !!

    Note: The player FX of catching the fish / sound has been removed for now.

    How to Fish:
    First, Head off and find some water. You need to be within a few meters or even standing in it. Take your Spear and jab the water floor and then you have a chance to haul in a fish. You can also use your Bow or Crossbow to get near the water and shoot at it.

    Note: you do not see any actual fish swimming or anything. You just 'attack' the ground under water for a chance to get a fish.

    Current Available Catch:

    Savis Island Swordfish
    - Common fish (Minnows)
    Hapis Island RazorJaw - Common fish (Small Trout)
    Colon BlowFish - UnCommon fish (2 Small Trout)
    Craggy Island Dorkfish - Rare fish (5 Small Trout), may or may not one knows. Legend has it, they may resemble rust developers.
    Random Item - pulls up a Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 3 crate for players to loot.

    actual raw catch will change to something else. chicken is just easy for now.

    fishing.allowed - will allows authorized players / group to be able to fish.

    Coming Soon or Ideas :
    - Adding Chances to pull up snake, gator or something bad. Might even hurt player or poison them.

    - Idea : Using boxes placed in rivers / water as fish traps. (facepunch beat me to this one) :)
    - Idea : Possibility of using mining quarry in river as a "Fish Wheel" to gather fish AFK.
    - Idea : Fishing Levels? better chance to pull equipment at higher levels?
    - Idea : Maps with "sunken treasure" marked on them?
