Hello Minecraft Devs - Doubt you'll ever see his but posting it anyhow. In the Previous Update we got actual Fish Entities in Minecraft. And in an upcoming one changes that define fishing as being in a body of water over a certain size. A lot of people are no doubt feeling upset but I suggest this is the BEST Time for an Upgrade to how Fishing actually behaves in minecraft. Especially because most people don't Fish for Fish.
There are way better sources of food - so unless you want the fish Entity most people don't want them.
So Maybe Fish Swallow Loot ???
My Idea Currently - A normal rod without Lure As though it's hooking dead fish by chance but with the Lure enchantment you have a Percentage chance of spawning/catching a Live fish Entity.
In that regards for each successful Lure your pond, lake or whatever will suddenly have a fish in it.
I would then further modify Fish with Tags to have the following Descriptions:
- A Small Fish - A Small fish when killed drops just a Fish
- A Medium Fish - A Medium fish when killed drops 1 fish plus 1 to 3 rolls from the Trash loot tables
- A Heavy Fish - A Heavy Fish when killed drops it's fish plus 1 to 3 rolls from the Treasure loot tables
In all of the above you Lure Level effects chance of getting an entity and high Luck alters your chance of small, medium or heavy fish.., How many roles you get from the given loot table is based on looting - naturally.
