    This is a very simple idea that could be fun and random but also a very easy addition to the server to add some excitement.

    Price boosting the fish sellers would be fun to new players and players like myself who have farmed enough drugs for a lifetime and want to spend maybe a few hours fishing and chatting with other players while still knowing they can pop a fish booster and make a good amount of money. I think something even as extreme as a 3-4x all fish booster would not ruin the economy by any means and give players more of an urge to do some mind-numbing fishing for a few hours! (Not to mention if made as a donation, the boosters will benefit the server.)

    Obviously, I can see the clear downfall being people using auto-fish/fishing machines but I think the staff are active and sneaky enough to know if someone is earning mountain loads of fish over others and the problems would not be as severe.

    Another fallback could be the fact that cops are not able to jail you for fish, but they are also allowed to fish themselves, giving them equal opportunity to benefit from fishing and fish boosters.

    [Edit] - The Boosters would also not have to be very long as you wouldn't have a very large number of double chests to sell, maybe 10-20 minutes.

    Let me know what you think or any additional suggestions you have!

    I dont think this would work out for a few reasons, mostly that fishing takes so much longer that after an hour you only have 3-4 stacks of assorted types of fish. It would be interesting but with how fishing works im not sure it will be a reality

    Its a good idea overall but some technicalities would need to be fixed. I think letting cops be able to fish would be a good idea as well and it would even things out if this idea was implemented.

    Not sure if the fish should be boosted 3-4x though, that might be a lot depending on how much fish you get, or it might not be enough, idk i dont fish so. But good idea, just needs some work.

    You would use it the same way you do drugs. You would stock up your fish, then sell after you popped your fishing booster.

    I understand that, just with how long it takes to store up fish that i feel it wouldn't be useful to sell the booster. It would be more useful if there was a boost on money gained when fishing than from the fish themselves. I doubt that many people would buy fish boosters leaving people with tons of stocked up fish waiting for a booster

    Yeah i'd agree it could use some work, but if you do fish you learn that it is not fast cash lol. I think a 3-4x booster wouldn't be all that insane from my fishing experience.

    I just feel it would be a good way to unite cops and player selling as well as give them a little more incentive to become cops and earn some money.

    Money boosts would be a good idea, where the money gained from jobs would be great. It can work the same as the experience boosts on skills, as it can be a certain skill that gets a money gain boost or all of them
