Just a Few Fish Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 adds fish entities for the vanilla fish items, as well as some content for them like fishing rods and fish tanks.
This mod changes the mechanics of fishing inside of Minecraft. With Just a Few Fish installed, you can now reel in, capture, and create fish farms with the different fish inside the mod.
There are four fish entities based on the fish items:
Fish Tank (multi-block structure which fish will not despawn in):
Iron Nugget (should be compatible with any other mod that uses iron nuggets)
Iron Fish Hook
Wooden Fishing Rod (different from the vanilla fishing rod)
Iron Fishing Rod
Gold Fishing Rod
Diamond Fishing Rod
Baiting a Fishing Rod (surround it with any type of seeds)
How to use:
Catching the fish:
All right, so you see some fish in your world… so what do you do with them now? Well, there are several things. The simplest is you can go and stab them with a sword to get the fish item directly. They aren’t so easy to spot though, and they have small hitboxes (and drowning is always a thing), so it may be easier to fish them up with a fishing rod instead…
Note that the vanilla fishing rod won’t work; it must be a fishing rod from this mod. If you try fishing normally with a vanilla fishing rod, you will get “fish bones” in place of any fish you would have caught (you can disable that in the config file).
There are four fishing rods: a wooden, gold, iron, and diamond one. They follow the other vanilla tool sets in terms of durability and enchantability. Simply throwing a fish hook near a fish isn’t good enough though… you have to put bait on the rod, using seeds (crafting recipe above).
So cast your fishing rod, and wait for the fishies to come! You can also fish up the same treasure/junk as the vanilla fishing rod if the hook sits long enough without a fish biting. Also, a word of warning. If you pull on the fishing rod too much at once, it will break. So you must reel the fish in a bit at a time, instead of spamming it.
If you have a bucket of water in your hotbar when you catch the fish, the fish will go in the bucket. You can then release it, or place it in a fish tank (more info below). You can also rename the bucket containing the fish in an anvil to name the fish without having to use a nametag.
Breeding the fish:
So you want to make a fish farm, huh? Well why not?
If you want to make a fish farm, you should first make some fish tanks (recipe above). The fish despawn naturally unless they are inside of a fish tank, so that way you don’t have to name every fish in your farm.
You breed the fish with seeds, but instead of clicking the fish with the seeds, you throw the actual seed items into the fish tanks, and the fish swim to them and eat them. So you could even make an auto-farm using dispensers with the seeds!
The fish will spawn in several biomes:
- Cod will spawn in every biome type.
- Salmon will spawn in rivers, swamps, and oceans.
- Pufferfish and Clownfish will only spawn in oceans.
How to install:
- Make sure you have already installed Minecraft Forge.
- Locate the minecraft application folder.
- On windows open Run from the start menu, type %appdata% and click Run.
- On mac open finder, hold down ALT and click Go then Library in the top menu bar. Open the folder Application Support and look for Minecraft.
- Place the mod you have just downloaded (.jar file) into the Mods folder.
- When you launch Minecraft and click the mods button you should now see the mod is installed.
