Re-Colorable Rods!

ShaunDreclin Resident Posted by in Ideas - April 28, 2013, 6:57 pm


I think it would be really nice if there was a HUD or typed commands to change the colors of our fishing rods. I've got the deluxe rod and it looks good enough, but I'd really rather have it blue to match my outfit. And I'm sure theres people who don't want to be waving a PINK magic rod around! xD

This is a bit of a difficult problem that we have had for some time.

Originally we made our fishing rods modify which allowed fishers to customise them. This was something really fun and we enjoyed seeing fishers with their custom rods quite a lot. coolcheeky

Unfortunately hackers then used the modify ability to insert scripts and attempt to hack our systems. That basically forced us to make our rods no-modify from then on.

Now putting scripts inside the rod to change the color is also something we are/have/want considered. But that brings up another problem of the additional lag generated by the scripts for customising the rod. Fishing events can already get quite laggy as it is. crying

I'm sorry to say that it looks like hackers have ruined everyones fun (as usual) sad

Hmm, what about some sort of system where the color change script only turns on in a certain area like the HQ? that would cut down on the lag caused by listening for typed commands.

If thats not possible maybe just offer an exchange where you can trade in rods for other colors somehow. Seems like a shame to get rid of a feature because of hackers :c
