    A favorite server of mine has recently gone into it's Ocean themed world, so the Angler is a highly revered NPC, but he's bugged. He doesn't reward the 'milestone items' as I call them being the Fuzzy Carrot, Angler set, and Golden Fishing Rod (Hotline Fishing Rod and Fin Wings may be part of it as well but nobody knows)
    I'm completely unsure if this is a general TShock bug, or a bug in one of the plugins the server has.

    But there is a solution I've thought of a Fishing Chests Plugin

    This means customizeable chests that check if you completed X amount of fishing quests and will allow you too gain the contents that it's assigned.
    This is possible as servers and worlds already track how many quests you have completed.

    If needed there can be one-time looting of chest per player, auto-refill cooldown time for each player or server-wide, or one time looting at all, but I don't desire for coders too be drawn away by this and is unnecessary especially since plugins for those sort of things already exist.

    This would fix the Angler being bugged problem on the server I play on, (or TShock bug in general or a certain plugin as I said I'm not sure) plus it would allow cool loot to be gotten by servers as a better incentive to do quests for the angler as it would be for more than just fishing gear.

    If anyone would like a shot at this go right on ahead, just leave a reply on this thread about doing so that others are aware as well. Heck don't even leave a line saying "made from the idea of *insert name here*" (unless you want to).

    Edit: I just talked to the owner,
    the server wasn't keeping track of the angler quests on SSC even though the server itself was, it's now tracked on the SSC part of the server but... the Angler still always rewards things as if you completed 0 quests.
    so a mix of plugin side and version side buggy-ness (if you even want to call it that anymore) was too fault.
    in the end this would still be a electable fix.

    Note: Before bashing my horrible grammar, know that I'm highly aware of just how awful it is, so if you want to go through the trouble of pointing out any grammar mistakes I'll fix it ASAP

    If the angler there won't give out the rewards it should then the owner didn't updated the server for the newest tshock,or he kept that version on purpose. Everybody had the same problems before, but its fixed since 2th July as you can read on the front page.

    Yea, and if it still is bugged after all of the updates the NPC Loot table editor can be used to change the drop items and percentages of drops.
