[AddOn v1.90] Electric Fishing Pole v1.90-1

This mod is now maintained by Zuxelus here: [1.7.10] Ztech - Collection of Addons
Name: Electric Fishing PoleSummary: A tesla coil and magnetizer on a stick. Blame Ranakastrasz.

It's pretty much what it says in the summary. A tesla coil to kill the little buggers, a magnetizer to pull them in. Fish are magnetic, you know. And an advanced circuit to make it all work together. And some string. Even I don't know what the string is for. Takes like 10,000EU per shot, because it's a goddamn tesla coil on a stick.

Although a few things:
- The recipe kinda makes sense, in that it seems reasonable, although i think it could be worked on a little.
- Why is the sprite a mashup?
- Normal string doesnt conduct electricity, but STEEL WIRE [HAYO] Does!

S = Refined Iron String x2/4/1

S = Refined Iron

Then replace the normal string in the recipes with iron string.
You could then start expanding on the iron string...

Sadly, I was mostly joking, but this just made my day regardless. Yep, Iron wire makes sense, and It looks like each zap pulls a ton of fish out of the water, which makes a ton of *sense*

Its a totally non-practical, but regardless awesome solution to a problem.

Hehe, thanks for the feedback. It's really just a half hour thing I threw together as a joke though, so I probably won't revisit it. :D That's why the sprite is a mashup of the recipe pasted over a regular fishing rod... well, that and because I'm not a terribly good sprite artist.

I love this addon with a passion.

I'd rather go dynamite fishing but electric sounds sweet as well. 8o

Ya know, if the fish are magnetic, you have to wonder how polluted the water is in minecraft :P

Why u no continue this? This is actually a good idea...


Wednesday, September 14th 2011, 8:56am

dude this is an awsome mod.
Could you also code it so that if you set off a stick of dynamite in the water a bunch of dead fish will rise to the surface. that would be awsome


Thursday, September 15th 2011, 10:06pm

This will be awesome when IC2 comes to MC 1.8! It will be much more useful when you can stack the fish!

I have to say something otherwise this topic will constantly come up as unread... (exceedingly annoying)
yeah i sort of see the joke and dynamite fishing would make more sense if dranishan is not going to do anything could someone please make a dynamite fishing mod for V 1.8.x


Wednesday, September 28th 2011, 10:38am

Somebody please post here to confirm he can access attachments of this thread and write in this section.

Unsure whether Feanturi fully fixed the addon section.


Wednesday, September 28th 2011, 11:18am

Everything is working fine for me.


Wednesday, September 28th 2011, 7:01pm

I was able to download the mod. Posting in the thread too! :)


Wednesday, September 28th 2011, 7:14pm

Thanks for confirming this, means i can move thread in here now ^^

I'd love to have pollution in Minecraft - turn the water into a toxic sludge and kill off all plant life, turn the skies grey with smog etc. :D

Yo is this addon going to be updated because it certainly could be extremely helpful especially in 1.8. MinecraftCreeper

Even though it was just for lolz, I kinda actually want it to work in 1.8 :D


It has become a little stubbly. Implement facial hair growth in IC²? Vision continuously grows more furry until you shave. (approx once every 2 minecraft days ;P)

Updated for 1.8 / IC2 1.23 / etc. Now, on to the real work... the charging bench.
