    BigCatch - Fishing, Made fun:

    I dont have much time for MC, or coding for fun. So i am going to have to throw in the towel. Anyone is welcome to Pick up the plug-in if they would like. I am just to busy for this kind of work. Here is the source <3

    by: Spoonikle
    with special thanks to...
    Yurij - great code
    FullWall - Good advice, and spotting big problems before they hurt my head
    darknesschaos - Words of encouragement
    Edward Hand - great code
    and to Samkio - For his Tutorials and helping me when my head hurt
    the most.

    Version: v0.7

    BigCatch, adds to the Fishing mechanic in Minecraft. With random catch events, and making it easier to get a fish, even when the server is laggy. Using the plug-in is simple, just throw it in your plug-in folder. when ever a player starts fishing, its working!

    All events are simple, there is no gold - or unobtainable items - in fact most of the fishing events created in BigCatch are well balanced for any traditional survival server.

    BigCatch Makes a great and FUN addition to any server!

    • Added random events, such as catching a leather hat, with a fish inside.
    • Added the BIG CATCH, where a player gets 4 fish for the price of 1!
    • Events range from Saving a drowning Pig, to catching a Squid!!
    When a player has been fishing for 10 seconds, and fails to catch a fish he is then given a 45% chance to catch a fish, and then a range of other random events.

    but, if a player has been fishing for 5 seconds or more, and catches a fish, they will receive a BIGCATCH - 3 additional fish.

    The Drop Table (open)
    "item" - "chance"
    dirt and failure - 2 in 30
    Leather boots - 1 in 10
    leather boots and a fish - 2 in 30
    a fish - 5 in 40
    a leather hat - 1 in 10
    a leather hat with a fish - 1 in 30
    a fish and a bone - 1 in 30
    a fish and 2 bones - 1 in 30
    BigCatch (3 fish) - 1 in 90
    nothing - 1 in 10
    a squid - 2 in 60
    a squid with a fish - 1 in 90
    String - 2 in 30
    A skeleton - 0.333%
    a near miss with a skeleton and broken bones - 2.997 %
    a pig - 0.666%
    The pig drowns and you get a piece of pork - 2.667%

    Planned additions:
    • More random events.
    • Configurable parameters
    • Configurable events, and event messages
    • Even more, cooler Fishing events! Keep sending them to me!
    known bugs:
    • Event catches involving mobs do not work properly (minor)
    Download BigCatch! v0.7 for Craftbukkit!

    why no update? :(

    This is a rather unusual thing... because of the new hash maps logging out of the server wont reset the plug-in for the player anymore - so that wont work... I will try to see where everything is going wrong.

    I will be releasing a new version for the latest build in 1-2 days, I will attempt to patch this issue with that release.

    Because i need more people to come to this topic and ask for one! :p, motivate me with your plee's!

    I will be updating shortly...

    I have been unaware of all of the comments left on this forum (when they switched to the new server, my emails stopped coming)

    I am working on a small patch to a few bugs, then i will release a version to work with the latest builds.

    Thx for the great support, in the next installments could you try to make a GUI for the set up of what you can fish for? Make your plug just that much more appealing.

    OK! i am gonna need some brave fellows to test the update to CB 601+

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/19143385/bigcatch test.jar

    This is just an update to the latest Cbukkit, i am still working on bug fixes... The cause of most issues elude me, as they are logic errors in my code, not miss used methods.

    Please report any errors, i do not have a server configured with the latest CB, i am still constructing a custom RP, and am slow to update due to its complexity...

    Using CB 617, no errors show up in the server log, but the fishing plugin does not appear to be working. Fishing works as if no plugin is installed. On server startup, it does say that the plugin is enabled.

    Okay, i will look into this, thanks.
  22. Want to try :D!

    Doesn't seem to work for me. 30+ tries and no "BigCatch". Only one fish per catch.
    But no errors in the log and it says BigCatch is enabled.
    CB RB #617

    You recently put in a check to see if someone is fishing on land or water. Disable the check and test. Make the events happen 100% of the time. Narrow it down from there.
