New Project in the Works!

Before commenting that the pack is not working for you, make sure you are downloading and installing correctly. I'm not a tutorial, any comments about the pack not working will be deleted.

  Have you ever fished in Minecraft and just wanted more? Have you ever looked at other games, or servers, and wished the fishing experience was more in-depth? Well, Fisherman+ is here to remedy that, and more. This data pack focuses on expanding the fishing loot table, and adding a new element to fishing known as “Sea Creatures''. Fisherman+ adds incentive to fishing while posing a challenge for players with bosses, and diverse strategies.

  Fisherman+ adds over 140 new loot options for fishing broken up into 3 rarities. You can find loot as Junk, Common, or Treasure. You can fish up anything from a piece of rotten flesh to a netherite ingot if you're lucky enough. Or you can fish up a sunken treasure, containing any possible junk, to treasure items. You could get a box of fish, or you could get a box of diamonds and netherite. And if you're really feeling lucky, you may fish up Atlan’s Treasure, containing custom loot and items only possible to obtain by killing high-level sea creatures.

  Continuing, Fisherman+ adds a new mechanic to fishing, known as “sea creatures”. These sea creatures come in 8 possible rarities. These rarities range from vanilla sea creatures to powerful bosses with at most 2x the hp of the Wither. These sea creatures drop custom loot, from minerals to books. To brand new custom fishing rods, such as the Rod of the Sea, dropped from the Sea Emperor. If you are lucky enough, you can fish up the Jade Extinction, which drops the Jaded Fishing Rod. With over 74 Sea Creatures, you’ll never get tired of fishing and fighting these.

Treasure- 5%
Basic- 21%
Common- 18%
Uncommon- 16%
Rare- 14%
Epic- 11%
Legendary- 7%
Mythic- 5%
Divine- 3%

  Moving on, Fisherman+ now has custom Fishing rods. There is 1 fishing rod for every Sea Creature rarity. With most being able to be fished up from Sea creatures or unboxed through Atlan’s Treasure. You can find your first custom fishing rob by killing a Drowned Fisherman. These Fishing rods increase the chance for Treasure or Sea Creature loot. Each rod is designed for any play style.

  Fisherman+ also has a Sea Encyclopedia for you to track the Sea Creatures you've slained. It shows the ancient lore of the sea creatures and some hints about what they may drop. All entries are available from the start.

  Fisherman+ brings a new feel to vanilla Minecraft fishing. With more loot, and treasure boxes. As well as Sea creatures to fish up and fight for rewards. And brand new custom items to use to progress your fishing journey. Fisherman+ is the answer to the lack of depth in the vanilla Minecraft fishing system.

  Updates are always being made for Fisherman+, if you have a bug, suggestion, or complaint, feel free to share in order to help make Fisherman+ the best fishing data pack.

Hey guys, sorry for being so radio silent on this datapack. I was planning the 1.3 update when I lost motivation. I'll be working on an update to fix the bugs that have been reported and add in some necessary features like a summon command.

If you want a 1.16.5 version of this data pack, there's www.planetminecraft.com/data-pack/improved-fishing/ the data pack this pack was inspired by. But no, there isn't a 1.16.5 version of Fisherman+.
