23-SEP-2014: Fixed a conflict with NRaas Story Progression's Skill module. Also if you are using my Ask To Join Fishing mod get the latest version of it if you want to be able to summon sims who normally couldn't to join in your sims' pool/fountain fishing. (Thanks to stevset for the report)

Mod Description

This mod allows fish spawners to spawn fish in pools and fountains and lets sims fish from them.


In a default game fish spawners that are not placed in proper water will have their effects turned off when the game enters Live mode. When this happens, the mod simply turns the spawn effects on spawners found in pools and fountains back on again.

Additionally, all sims (not just children and Insane ones) can use the usual fishing interactions on pools and fountains as long as there is at least one fish spawner in it (You have to click relatively close to the spawner for the interactions to show up though. Sims will NOT fish from a pool or fountain with no spawners in it so just don't place one in any that you don't want them fishing from). The regular Stock Pond interaction can also be used to add fish from a sim's inventory to any pool or fountain to make it fishable from.

Fishing from a pool/fountain with a spawner in it can be performed autonomously by sims just as regular fishing has always been.

End Notes

Built and tested on patch 1.67

Base Game compatible

I believe fish spawners can already spawn fish in pools with Awesomemod installed, if so you won't need this one if you're already a user of that mod (at least it did when I used it a while back, it was a feature I liked and missed enough to create this one). Other than that this is a pure script mod so should have no conflicts with any tuning mods or any script mods that I know/can think of.
