Lighthouse + Dock = Ocean Fishing

Recommended Posts

Skull    67

A few subscribers to my youtube channel have asked about fishing in the ocean. I always tell them you can't do that just yet. But I came up with something and I would like to hear what you guys think.

Maybe in a few months users can go fishing in the ocean. How? You say. Well let me explain.

  1. They have to build a dock with a light house.
  2. Then a boat with a crew of two Pigmen.
  3. You have to keep your boat in the light coming from the light house. That way you don't die from sea monsters.

Dock = 20 ropes + 20 wooden boards

Lighthouse = 20 stone + 1 lighting bulb = 10 Fireflies (blubs have to be replaced every 10 days)

Boat = 10 wooden boards + 8 ropes + 5 stone (anchor)

I always thought they should take away the bridges that connect the islands together and make it to where you have to build a boat to travel to another place. Say make a beach and you'll know that right across from it is another island. It wouldn't be something where you have to click like you walk when in the boat rather it would just give you a loading screen instead. But I don't know might make it too frustrating to add this

Yup. I'm not sure we need a dock or lighthouse, however I would like to one day take to the sea on a boat or raft. In my previous suggestion I felt if they added a beach biome then you could craft a boat/raft on it and then push/launch it to sea.

As RoniandCheese mentioned, I've also suggested that the stone bridges should be removed. In fact, I believe they're only there right now as a stop-gap measure. If they did allow for boats/rafts then they could do away with the bridges once and for all. From that point players could take to the sea and begin exploring in search of other islands. The threats of the sea could be rocks, sea monsters, and fierce weather.

Of course who knows if that will ever truly happen?

I think having a lighthouse option would be pretty cool. Something to light up a large area of the map so that you don't have to have multiple fires going at once if you have a large base camp and actually want to do things at night~

Which is also why that would be an issue. The Devs have re-balanced light several times as they goal is to make nights scary. If you could just plop down a massive light source that would eliminate this fear. So while I wouldn't mind a dock being added, I could do without the lighthouse.
