These mods are updated to V3 for the 1.19 patch.

These mods are updated to V2 for the 1.16.61 patch.

A new mod is added which includes all the Outdoor Retreat fish, OR is required to use this one. It is used instead of the first mod, not at the same time. Description is below following the basegame mod description.

This mod alters all of the fishing spots on all of the basegame maps such that all fish and all treasures are available at all of the fishing locations.

Also the 'weighted chance' on all fish is equal, such that Tilapia, for example, can be caught just as frequently as Minnow. Also the chance on the treasures is equal for all treasures. The chance of catching fish instead of treasure is higher, the same as they have done in vanilla game.

There are two map exceptions to the description above, and these are the Sylvan Glade and the Hidden Grotto maps. These two maps are done thusly:

The Sylvan Glade waterfall spot has Sturgeon as the only fish, so the fishersim can make lots of money quickly. The income here can rival the easel painting, so it's possible to do this as the main income instead of the painting or careers. The only treasures here are the Cowplant Berry, Pomegranate, Orchid, and Dragonfruit, so they can be found quicker.

The Sylvan Glade pond has the Sturgeon as the only fish, and the Cowplant Berry, Pomegranate, Orchid, Dragonfruit, and the Violin, Guitar, and Voodoo Doll as the treasures.

The Hidden Grotto is the same as the sylvan glade pond, with the Sturgeon and the 7 treasures. These Sylvan Glade and Grotto locations do not have the Junk which the sim throws back in the water.

The requirement for catching Sturgeon is lowered from Fishing Skill level 7 to level 2.

Unzip the file and place the .package file in the Mods folder or subfolder.

This mod uses these XML files:


The OR version of this mod has the 5 OR fish and the OR Treasures added to the basegame maps' fishing locations together with all the other treasures and fish. The OR treasures which can be caught are Basil, Parsley, Sage, Chillville Cooler, Small Tent, Portable Shower.

The Sylvan Glade and Grotto spots are done differently, as with the original mod:
-The Sylvan Glade pond still has the Sturgeon as the only fish, with the 6 OR treasures added to the other 7 basegame treasures listed above.
-The Hidden Grotto has the OR fish together with the Sturgeon, and all of these 13 treasures.
-The Sylvan Glade waterfall spot has the Sturgeon with the 5 OR fish, but only the 4 basegame treasures: Cowplant, Pomegranate, Orchid and Dragonfruit. This is simply for getting these plants quicker for a newbie sim, for example.
-All of the fishing spots on the OR Granite Falls maps are done the exact same way. The 5 OR fish and the 6 OR treasures are available everywhere, with all the basegame fish and treasures removed. The basegame items are simply in the way of the new ones, my sim can fish at home if he wants the basegame fish. All of the fish and treasures are weighted equally as I describe above, and fish will be caught more frequently than treasure.

The OR mod must be used instead of the original mod, it is not an add-on. The OR mod uses these files together with the other files listed in the spoiler:
