This Animal Crossing Mod will help you get rid of the sea bass.
If you are an Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you are probably sick of the phrase “I caught a sea bass! No, wait—it’s at least a C+!” So what if you never had to see another sea bass in Animal Crossing ever again?
According to a story over on Polygon, it has got to the point where a modder by the name of ‘SmuggestGirl’ has decided to eradicate this sea roach from the game. Their mod, simply titled ‘No Sea Bass’, reduces the spawn rate of this particular fish to zero percent.
Here’s some user feedback so far:
“Shucks, now [it’s] all squids, olive flounders, and red snappers”
Hilariously, there’s also a mod that does the complete opposite. It seems that SmuggestGirl is an agent of chaos because they’ve also developed an “only sea bass” mod that makes all other varieties of fish extinct. Six brave souls in total have downloaded it thus far.
On the more helpful end, there’s also a mod that color-codes the fish, so you know what to expect. Common fish are yellow, while bigger/rarer fish are red and purple. This way, there are no surprises when you cast your reel.
Unfortunately, you can’t experience any of these tweaks unless you’re running a modded Switch or are playing an emulated version of the game. But it’s striking to see the differences in potential experience — Animal Crossing hackers are making all sorts of quality of life adjustments that the base game sorely needs.
The same modder has also created the “complete opposite” of this – removing all other varieties of fish from the water but the sea bass. It left one commenter questioning what would happen if they ran both mods at the same time.
While the mod removing this fish from the game is definitely amusing, alternatively you could just learn to live with it occupying the surrounding waters of your tropical paradise. It still sells for 400 Bells!
