Hey guys I just gmed fishing and I thought I would help some people with macroing it if they were interested. This is almost full proof. However, you will sometimes run into a serpent in the middle of the ocean and it will kill you. Or, you will sometimes pull up a serpent too close to your boat and it is impossible to move the boat forward. I am still kind of tinkering with things to avoid the serpents all together, but I'm not quite sure if any of my ideas work yet. One idea I had was to macro fishing one tile behind the front of the boat. Anyway, I am getting off track. I hope some of you will play with it and let me know what you think.

Requirements:
GM Hiding!

How do you set a target relocation? I'm having great difficulty simulating this macro, and all I want to do is GM my fishing (96.7) without gains being so mind-numbingly slow.

So yeah, can anyone help me to replicate this macro?

Just record your macro
double click on your fishing pole, and then click where you want to fish.
I put mine to the back of the boat which allows me to go slow left, slow right or slow back and the macro will still work. (slow forward is to fast and will tell you need closer water to fish in)
Stop recording
change your direct target(water) to relative location.
Insert a pause of 8 secs at the end
and loop it.


Considering you are not allowed to fish unattended, this will work just fine.
You can write in a system message if that is not a fish. To me I want the serps, gold comes on them, magic weps(found more then my share of powers and vanqs on them. And sometimes even lvl 2 tmaps)

Is there a cap to how high your fishing can get from land? I have been stuck at 93.2 for awhile.

Thanks,
Fish

Im fairly macro-impaired so I just did a relative location next to my bow and slow forward. To keep myself motivated I buy 10-packs of MIBs from various vendors (couple at yew MG...the guy with Harlan is priced well, the guy a bit north of him is steep, took 9 chests fished up to break even cash-wise off coin n trash, the guy at Trinny MG, and the Black Shoppe which is by FAR the best) and ran the macro while I sailed around to fish them up giving me a purpose to keep on living and turning a decent profit.

I have actually had a blast doing it while working quite possibly the most mind numbing skill in all of UO. I used to fish sos's by the dozen on Sonoma and had a total assembly line process goin with a dozen boats around various sets of coordinates and such. I havent just sailed the seas looking for treasure since I was a noob way back when and I found a pack full of MIBs in a house fall. The whole reason my mage became a fisherman in the first place was to get enough skill to fish them up and he was the only character I had with enough magery to recall to the boat...lol Totally a nostalgia thing I guess.

This seems to work fine... Double click pole, target relative location (north of you - stand at the tip of your boat). if there's no fish, it goes forward one until it runs into some. you could run it on the edge of the map so you don't get stopped, or there's probably a way to incorporate a turn around into it.. I'm waiting until i run into something to worry about that.

Code:
!Loop
Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickTypeAction|3520|True
Assistant.Macros.WaitForTargetAction|2
Assistant.Macros.TargetRelLocAction|0|-6
Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:01
Assistant.Macros.IfAction|4|0|seem to be biting
Assistant.Macros.SpeechAction|0|52|3|ENU|2|16|90|forward one
Assistant.Macros.ElseAction
Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:08
Assistant.Macros.EndIfAction

You just need to have your map open and make sure you are fishing in the darker shade of water. That is the deep water.

Deep Water is exactly 9 tiles in any directions away from land.

Since this has been resurrected, I just wanted to point out that fishing now unhides you. Sucks, because hide/fishing is how I made the bulk of my money here :(

I've found that a bard/fisher spamming "peacemaking" works well to be able to go semi-afk, as then the serps can't get ya. Pirates are another story, but as long as you're checking back every few minutes (like you SHOULD be, since AFK macro is illegal!) and have a decent set of steering macros, you should be set. You should also make sure to be very secure in your fishing. Try not to leave too much of value on the boat. Always make sure it's locked and that the key is in your bankbox...you can recall from it there. There's an era-accurate bug that lets the pirates board your boat (I'm not telling how, since I occasionally pirate too), so research it and NEVER LISTEN TO WHAT THE PIRATES TELL YOU!

Anyone know where I can find a chart that tells you how far to cast your rod for maximum skill gain depending on the shown skill level?
