Nerdguin If you can kill them now, does that mean you can eat them too?

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Jul 18th at 3:27 AM

I forgot to mention in the patch notes but the fish in this mod can now be killed.

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Jul 18th at 2:23 AM

Large 3.0 Update currently in the works.

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Jul 9th at 11:13 PM


You can't kill the fish as they currently function the same way butterflies do. I'm working on a fix for this.

getting log spam one a .net7 from the mod: at Vintagestory.ServerMods.GenCreatures.TrySpawnGroupAt(BlockPos origin, Vec3d posAsVec, EntityProperties entityType, EntityProperties[] grouptypes) in /game_net7/VSSurvivalMod/Systems/WorldGen/Standard/ChunkGen/93.GenCreatures.cs:line 185

I get tons of those on launch of a new world and when you generate new chunks

Also we getting these: 9.7.2023 17:57:16 [Server Warning] Entity with code fish:guppy-hybrid has defined InsideBlockCodes for its spawn conditions, but none of these blocks exists, entity is unlikely to spawn. For multiple types of fish

Can someone explain to me why I can't kill the fish?
💬 NerdguinAuthor, Apr 25th at 7:15 PM

Another patch to combat overcrowding is coming. Fish will now spawn less and despawn in light levels of six or less rather than four or less.

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Apr 24th at 10:50 PM

A patch is coming for even further decreased fish spawns.

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Apr 21st at 3:00 PM

Hello! I plan on adding the ability to use the vanillia bug net to transport them in the next update.

💬 FoxDragon, Apr 16th at 8:45 PM

Is there a way to move fish to another place from where you find them? Or will one be added if there isnt?

💬 Tuga1308, Apr 11th at 3:32 PM

will the fish despawn or can you move fish into an artifical lake for decoration purposes?


💬 NerdguinAuthor, Mar 19th at 6:12 AM

Update 1.3 has been released.

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Mar 19th at 2:09 AM

Update 1.2 Released.

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Mar 18th at 7:18 PM

Future releases will do so, thanks for the suggestion.

💬 DanaCraluminum, Mar 18th at 7:02 PM

Could you also always add mod version to archive name?

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Mar 18th at 6:43 PM

Screenshots have been added.

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Mar 18th at 6:33 PM

Hello Cranluminum! I will add some more screenshots in a few minutes.

💬 DanaCraluminum, Mar 18th at 6:30 PM

Could you add screenshots of new fishes?

💬 NerdguinAuthor, Mar 18th at 6:22 PM

Hello Frepo! Thanks for the feedback, this mod in particular is based around ornamental fish like koi and other popular aquarium fish. Feverstone Wilds or Dangerous Water are both good for water enemies,

💬 Frepo, Mar 18th at 3:32 PM

nice! but what the game really needs are dangerous fish that makes the waters unsafe. An electric eel with a small AoE attack would be cool.
