1.1 Job information
The Fishing Job is a legal job type that can be used alongside any other script-job that you may have. The job includes fishing for the fish from either a platform or a boat and then transporting them to sell them for cash.
There are two places in which you are able to use the fishing commands; the Santa Maria Pier (Pictured Below) and open water, such as the sea and lakes.
There is also an area at the Ocean Docks (Pictured below) for you to unload your fish for money.
The Dinghy is the cheapest and most basic vehicle available to those using the fishing script, with the slowest speed and limited roleplaying opportunities in comparison to models such as the Tropic. A good starting boat, it's a foundation for increasing the amount of money you earn via the fishing script.
The Reefer is a step up from the standard dinghy and provides a more luxurious way of fishing at an affordable price. Despite not being as fast as some of the other vehicles available, you can definitely show your sense of style across the fishing empire with this large vessel.
The Tropic is seen as the middle ground for Fisherman, offering more roleplay opportunities and a classier look in comparison to the Dinghy. There are several modifications around that allow users to enter the interior of the boat, allowing more access to roleplaying opportunities for those wishing to create a faction around the fishing job - or use it for a trip with faction members.
The Squalo is the most expensive boat available to those using the fishing script, but it is also the fastest and allows those using the fishing job to generate money the ability to complete loads faster than those using other modes of transport.
- /gofishing 1
This command is used if you wish to start fishing from a vehicle on open water.
- /gofishing 2
This command is used if you wish to start fishing from the Santa Maria Pier.
This command is used to catch fish after using either of the two /gofishing commands. This can be used every 6 seconds in an attempt to catch a fish.
Stops fishing before hitting the limit and prompts you to go and unload the fish.
Used to unload your fish for cash. This command will create a waypoint for you to travel to and sell your fish for money.
Allows you to see how many fish you've currently caught in lbs.
- 3.1 Pier
By heading to the Santa Maria Pier, you are able to fish without the need of purchasing a boat. Simply type "/gofishing 2" and head down to the end of the pier to the static fishing rods pointing out to sea. From here, type "/fish" and you will be presented with what you have caught and it's weight. Continue using /fish until you have had enough of fishing (command can be used once every 6 seconds) and then use "/stopfishing" to bring your fishing trip to an end.
To receive your payout for fishing you then need to unload these fish at the Ocean Docks. Use the command "/unloadfish" to put this point on your mini-map. Head over to the marker and use the command "/unloadfish" again. This will sell your fish and you'll be presented onscreen how much you have sold them for. This money is automatically added to your cash.
3.2 Open Water
If you have enough cash, you can purchase different boats to help you to fish for larger quantities of fish. Once purchased, hop into one of these boats and type "/gofishing 1" to be shown a marker in the sea just south of the Santa Maria Pier. Type "/fish" to begin fishing and use this command (only once every 6 seconds) to catch as much fish as you want. To bring your trip to an end, type "/stopfishing."
Once again, you'll need to head to the Ocean Docks unloading point to sell your fish. Type "/unloadfish" and head to the Ocean Docks waypoint which has now appeared on your mini-map. The advantage of having a boat in this situation is you can easily drive back and forth between Ocean Docks and Santa Maria fishing area to reel in the big bucks! Once at the unloading point, type "/unloadfish" again to sell your fish. Again, you'll be shown how much you sold them for and this amount will automatically be added to your cash.
4. Frequently asked questions
- How do I sell my fish for money?
Use "/unloadfish" to be prompted with a waypoint on the minimap. If you then travel to this waypoint and use the "/unloadfish" command again you shall sell your fish to the server and receive payment.
- Can I have the fishing job alongside any other job?
Yes. As the Fishing Job is not assigned to your character and doesn't appear in /stats anyone can use it, regardless of whether they're in a faction or have a job already.
- How much money do I get for selling my fish?
The amount of money you receive when selling your fish, is determined by what the total weight is and the type of fish you caught. When fishing, you can see what you catch - as shown below:
Fishing from a boat yields much greater profit due to being able to hold a greater weight of fish. However, you do need to own/be on a boat.
- Are there any rules regarding fishing?
Yes - When fishing from the pier, it is against the server rules to /fish from a vehicle.
- Can I be robbed at the Fishing Pier?
No, a player can not rob you as it is a safe zone therefore you cannot commit any crimes, but once you leave the remote area you're prone to being robbed.
- Can I give my fish to other players?
No, unfortunately you cannot give other players your fish.
