Fishing had been one of the most suggested and rejected idea since a long time in Argonath RPG. A conventional fishing script involves driving a boat to sea and typing a command, which can be boring and too easy. With VCMP 0.4's new features, a new system was planned, called Harpooning
The objective is to hunt rare sea creatures and sell them at the fish market. To accomplish this, a custom object and a custom weapon has been added to the server:Ogra
is a carnivorous fish unique to the coast of Argonath Vice. It resembles the Shark, but is considerably smaller, characterized by red fins and tail. It occasionally surfs very close to the surface of the water at a high speed.
The Ogra's fins, bones and fish oil is of tremendous export value, hence it is a popular Harpooning target. The state used to make a good profit exporting the Ogra's parts in the past decade, but considering how rare the species is, hunting Ogras was banned by the law.Harpoon
is a custom weapon added to the server and can be bought at tool shops. It works like a sniper rifle, so you need to aim down the sight to fire it. Fishermen need to navigate around the Sea to locate an Ogra and shoot it down with the Harpoon. Since this activity is illegal, expect cops to be a challenge. After harpooning an Ogra, visit the Fish Market in Vice Port to sell the prey for $500(subject to changes).
Ran out of stuff to write, so here is a giant dead turtle at the fish market.(Dont click the picture!)
