I find myself wondering what these items I am catching look like.
So I thought "what if we could have a journal that would show the pictured of every fish and item that you might pull up from the depths?
I thought perhaps the journal could be attached as a HUD that would listen when you were fishing and record each time you fished up something new.
The journal could flip like the pages of a magazine does and on one side would be the image of the item and the stats of the item on the other. The item image could be pale or greyscale only until collected. On the stat page one could read a description of the item. Have a simple symbol code to define its value as a catch, and when caught include the date and time and possibly even the location.
Collections could be included and when all items in that collection were fished up and recorded, an award of some kind could be offered.
I think many fishers would find it fun and reinvigorating to fish to collect for in their journals. It would be fun to look up things like Amy Cutestfish and see some clever cartoon of this unique specimen.
Let me know what y'all think!
