Bregs Fish is a comprehensive & balanced fish overhaul.
It changes difficulty, catch chances for shallow and deep water, fishing level, locations, seasons, weather and times.

Includes fish index and fishing calendar.


The goal is to enhance the fish occurrence to diversify and intensify the fishing mini game.
The fish characteristics are completely changed for a smooth learning curve, all balanced for ambitious fishing with less repetition.

IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE FISHING SYSTEM, IT CHANGES THE FISH!

Compatible with SDV 1.3 beta

Compatibility
   
 
Bregs Fish uses Content Patcher for better support, update and compatibility.
  If you still want to hardcopy the included fish.xnb and locations.xnb you can do so (not recommended). xnb-support will propably be dropped with the next release!

  Bregs Fish is compatible with:
  • Teh's Fishing Overhaul by TehPers, available here
        note: All fish are exactly catchable like described here, despite NumPad9 might not always show correct data (e.g. Mine fish, multiple time fish).

----------

Development
   
 
Update 06.05.2018: After a long break I"m now working hard on the next big version of Bregs Fish:
  • feedback
  • a ton of new fish models
  • complete rework of the balance system
  Stay tuned!
