Scan Aquatic Lifeforms is a Mod that allows Oxylus to show Fishing Hotspots and apply Luminous Dye on nearby fish. Hotspots are shown with a red fish icon on the map.


Rank Hotspot Range Luminous Dye Range Cost
0 25m 10m 0
1 50m 20m 1
2 75m 30m 2
3 100m 40m 3


  • Only the player who owns the Oxylus can see the hotspot icons and illuminated fish.


  • Prior to Update 24.2 (2018-12-18), this mod was originally called 'Scan Lifeforms' and increased the number of active conservation encounters.


  • If this mod and Mod TT 20px.png Animal Instinct are equipped together, Animal Instinct may take priority and Scan Aquatic Lifeforms will not activate. The reverse can also happen, where Animal Instinct doesn't activate instead.
