Many people enjoy fishing as a hobby. Well, instead of fishing in the real world and catching real, edible fish, you can now catch virtual fish in the Minecraft world and eat those too.
Thanks to the new Fishing Craft mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5, any fishing-related activities are possible. Fishing Craft adds 12 new fish to the game, including:
-Red bellied piranhas
In order to catch these fish, players need to bait a line and drop it in the water. Bait includes fish morsels and frog eggs, and some bait can be collected from a new underwater weed block which now spawns in rivers and swamps.
Catching fish isn’t as simple as you might think. Certain fish are only found in certain types of biomes and locations. Catfish are in shallow and shady areas of swamps but can be found everywhere during a rainy day, for example, while salmon can be found in nearly every river in the game. Meanwhile, larger fish like Yellowfin and Bluefin tuna can be found deep at sea.
The mod includes two types of fishing rods – the wooden fishing rod and the reinforced fishing rod. Players also enter the crafting window to bait that rod. After catching a fish and eating it raw, players have a chance of catching a serious disease. Just like in real life, you should probably cook your fish before eating it. Cooked fish also unlocks full HP benefits.
The mod is currently a work in progress, but it’s fully playable right now. If you’ve been craving for some fishing action in your Minecraft world, then the Fishing Craft mod by Sharingan616 is one for you.
