  4. One baitcoin per event fish like there was for the St Patrick's Day event would give everyone that has completed an event previously something to do during it, also having the Fireworks communal helps the festive spirit and encourages people to chat and cooperate in events.

  5. I try to picture what kind of research went into the fishing AI and how detailed the devs chose to be. How does randomization fit into generating fish size or bite rate? How does range and angle fit in? Is range and angle the reason underwater cheaters attract larger fish faster? If range and angle are a factor, if I equip a waggler or a heaver tackle, can I approach the same marker from another long range position and get another set of fish to spawn? (Yes, in San Joaquin!) Did the devs program fish behavior according to season? If so, do some of these fishing aromas simulate fish pheromone behavior like I believe X Flavour does? I don't expect to win competitions mostly because my Comcast connection tends to bottleneck and lag way too much. However, I do fish through competitions to collect and compare data to see what parameters are different and similar. I may start holding custom competitions of my own to study randomization in controlled settings. I enjoy learning what makes things tick. Take note of the people who run custom competitions. Some of them may be studying game parameters in depth to help them ace official competitions. When I take my boy fishing IRL, he loves just watching the water and sky intently. He tells me, "Mom, whoever created the fish and birds is a great engineer to be able to make fish fly in the water and birds swim in the sky." My boy enjoys learning what makes things tick too.

  6. It has been pointed out that there are no real incentives to play as a more advanced player, as all the challenges are one shot items and the events cannot be done a second time. I really enjoyed and looked forward to the new monster fish that have been added and found they encouraged me to fish some of the earlier lakes instead of just hammering away at the latest waterway. Now that I have completed the Halloween,Christmas,St Patrick day and Independence Day events there is no new challenges or rewards as most event fish are not worth money and XP is no good to you if you are already Max level. Could all events maybe reset as I am sure we would all do them again each year and I am sure they produce an increase in revenue to the developers for the time they are running. May I suggest having the ONE BAITCOIN per event fish as there was with the St Patrick event on all events as once you hit max level and do all challenges there is no way to earn them if you are not into comps. Love the game, glad the developers are still adding new things.

  8. I'm not sure about the time frames, but yeah unique sizes drop quite a bit after 7-10 days and don't pick back up again until around day 21-23. If I'm looking for just big unis I only fish the first 7 days then leave and come back to try again. It's not because of a recent update, I noticed it over a year ago when I was skipping from night to night during a community event on PS4, trying to get a gafftopsail catfish over 10 lbs., never did catch one lol.

  12. There is currently no way I know of to get the lure back. Did hear it mentioned (somewhere) that the Developers might look into a way of obtaining lost limited edition lures (like the Golem lure) in the future but were currently too busy with new waterways (think they were releasing the South American waterways at that time). I have not seen anything official mentioning that this will ever happen but would be really nice if it did (losing one of your favourite lures is never any fun).

  13. This game is wonderful, well done, but it has one major flaw. The competitions. You should play when the game decides and not when you can. So people who don't work, maybe they are rich, play competitions at any time of day or night, we mere mortals have to take the right time, the right competition. Run two competitions a day at accessible times for each country. Maybe stepping up on the weekend. I would like to play when I can, not when you decide. Anyway thanks for this wonder

  19. Versuchen Sie, rechts vom Eingang der kleinen Bucht zu werfen, in der sich das Kanu befindet. Suchen Sie in der Nähe des Ufers nach einem Bündel strohfarbenen Schilfrohrs, das Sie in der Umgebung dieses Schilfs auswerfen müssen (ein Baum mit goldenen Blättern steht weiter hinten vom Ufer). Sobald Sie den Cast in der Nähe des versunkenen Kanuteils der Mission abgeschlossen haben, sollten Sie nun in der Lage sein, die Reliktkiste aus dem Kanu selbst zu fangen (Kartenkoord. 148.9, -7.66) (Google Übersetzer verwendet) Try casting to the right-hand side of the entrance of the small inlet where the canoe is located. Look for a bunch of straw-coloured reeds near the shoreline, you need to cast in the area around these reeds (there is a tree with golden leaves further back from the shoreline). Once you have cleared the Cast near the sunken canoe part of the mission you should be now able to catch the relic chest from the canoe itself (Map co-ords 148.9, -7.66) (Google Translate used)

  24. @kdog013 I'm sorry for the confusion. The point I was making is that there is a lost fish routine in game where the fish actually has the bait in it's mouth and dives down and pivots on its nose to swallow it further down its gullet. If the leader is too short, the fish ends-up spitting out the hookbait because it feels sus. In the shark's case, however, it is more predatory and continues to swallow rather than spit out anything sus. As the hookbait travels further down the shark's gullet, it's teeth shreds the line. At least, that is what I think is happening. In this case, the devs need to provide us with adjustable titanium or galvanized steel leaders if they programmed certain toothy beasts to keep swallowing past the leader length which allow their teeth to shred the line...or program them like carp to spit out the bait. However, sharks are not as intelligent or picky as carp, so programming sharks to spit out bait is not natural. The predator instinct is to continue to swallow its prey no matter how big or annoying the prey may be. I have a couple of predator frogs that I cannot keep with each other because they will attempt to swallow each other whole even if it kills them to do so. That nose pivot it suppose to help it anchor itself and swallow deeper.

  26. Dear carp friends, I'm raiding a new angler's Fishing Planet stream on Wednesdays. I'm not abandoning all things carp. I still have Russian fish school telemetry to sonar scan for predator and common carp as well as carp species isolation mixes to finalize. I enjoy helping new players make the most of having fun on Fishing Planet and The Fisherman. Helping support new players helps the community grow. The more our little game community grows, the more we can bug the developers to keep adding new content. The fishing party is just friends from all over the world, spouses, bros, gals having fun fishing and raiding each others Youtube and Twitch channels. I know I can be overly scientific when talking carp, so I guess that makes me the resident Lady Neil deGrasse Tyson of the Fishing Planet trout party. If you are new to Fishing Planet, you are welcome to join our rag tag party on Youtube and learn how to fish while having fun. Feel free to ask questions, and I'll try to answer them without getting too technical. The party is family friendly for most part, except when we misunderstand each others accents, regional slang and awful puns. High level veteran anglers are also welcome to help answer questions and laugh along with us. Next lake we are partying at is Falcon Lake, Oregon. We're mostly going to focus on trout fishing this run so I can get some of the people ready to fish the Rainbow Outlaw Monster. I think some of them tried hunting monsters earlier without me and lost rods and hair. Sigh. Since many of the party goers are relatively new to Fishing Planet and The Fisherman, I'm going to be the one supplying everyone attending with Telemetry and Tackle details. I have included some of my favorite trout hunting techniques which more advanced users may find helpful in the official Trout Tournament.

  27. Competitive Moby Hunting Each time Jim Kaf sails a 14/0 cap'n hook into Arbor Lake after he carpet bombs the lake with his super particle collider groundbait mix, he creates an entanglement with the server to roll up to 5 different carp within a 35k average range with potential spikes close to 50k and a few below the 20k range. The carp only nibble one at a time to conserve server and end user resources. Smaller hooks, smaller particle mixes, different baits and different aroma intensities result in a smaller weight average or bigger spike range. Jolly Carp contenders like Jim Kaf and Eluce often run custom competitions on Fishing Planet using the same parameters of upcoming competitions to resolve Groundbait Bait and Tackle Channel effectiveness against competition Environmental Channel parameters. These guys need to produce 40k mirror and leather carp averages consistently to win. On The Fisherman, where there are no custom competitions and upper limit of hook size remains at 10/0, top competition average is only 30k per carp. Practice runs, hook size, stable moby mix, and a steady high speed internet connection is what wins carp competitions on Fishing Planet. Moby Hunting Failure If you ain't placing very high in Jolly Carp on Fishing Planet several things could be at fault. Poor internet connections causes missing data, bottleneck data trickle, faulty instances, disconnections, and broken rod mechanics where rods struggle to load groundbait. Missing data throws off game physics and math calculations. Musette's internet fails in this category. As much as you think you practice, you likely don't practice as devotedly as someone like Jim Kaf. I thought Jim had more game wealth than I did because he's been playing Fishing Planet much longer than I have and is a much higher rank. He spends quite a bit of fishing cash conducting practice game competitions to git gud. I have 3 times more game wealth than he does in Fishing Planet because Jim spends generously on custom competitions. I just conduct fishing experiments on both Fishing Planet and The Fisherman platforms in regular competitions and instances. I'm a science nerd while Jim is a competitive beast. I have a bad habit of dropping competitions to chase anomalies like the recently discovered Carp Ballet whilst in the middle of a Lucky Ghost competition. I really should be conducting science observations in custom competitions rather than official competitions. Twilight Zone A competition is a special instance or dimension of your favorite waterway. Everything looks the same. However, underwater, Twilight Willows is a shadow version of Weeping Willows. Fish school populations are reduced. Your favorite fishing spot might not be active. You need know to several active spots through experience. You need to know how to stimulate fish feeding behavior through very narrow preset Environmental Channel parameters. If you only have one great mix that works on a rainy, high pressure day, you will score poorly. If your internet connection is less than stellar or the server is over taxed, Twilight Willows could become glitched. Welcome to the Twilight Zone. (Jim, we should have a Rod Serling impersonator narrating!) Carp Ballet Not all oversized moby carp which can be summoned will inhale bait on a 14/0 hook. One of the delights of fishing on Fishing Planet, as opposed to The Fisherman, is that you can watch carp nibbling up close. Some of the larger carp may not take a bait on a short leader. These oversized carp may approach from the top and need to do a couple of twists before inhaling the bait. If the leader is too short or the hook is on an incline, the fish won't be able to complete his twist ballet. Thus, if you are watching large carp dropping the bait while smaller carp pick it up, adjust the leader length and try again. The moby place holder that dropped the bait will remain with his school until the school moves on. Some carp schools are confined to a small territory while other carp schools, like in Germany, have a wider migratory path. Till next time, I leave you all with real life footage of how spod carpet affects schools of small fish, large carp school, then schools of small fish again until the spod is mostly eaten, similar to spod carpet life cycle in Fishing Planet. The devs did well calculating fish behavior and spodding dynamics in Weeping Willows, UK. Disclaimer: No Jim Kafs were harmed in the making of this Carpumentary. Jim Kaf does not neccessarily subcribe to any of Musette's sus fish mechanic theories. Musette needs to update her carp diary with remixes but has been too lazy to do so. Just play around with particle amounts and a few ingredients to create your own Jackson Pollock underwater masterpieces!

  28. I agree the game is wonderful fun. And yeah, some of the people are just not too bright. I've gotten to where I blot out those nearest models. You can do that in the settings. Others you just have to ignore. They don't go away, but they aren't bothering you (as much). I was fishing facing the gate at White Moose, caught a nice Northern. Ready to go home, I spun around only to see a freaking kayaker had pulled in behind me. Had to hit the anchor (or run him over). In real life he'd be dead. Fortunate for him its only a game. Those types and the ones who pull their boat/kayak in between you and the area you've been fishing for 5 straight hours are the worst. And they are mostly lower level players who are just looking for someone catching fish that they can tag in on and grab some money and experience. They'll never learn to play the game, without someone showing them where the fish are. They can follow a walkthrough or watch a youtube video, but they just aren't that bright in decision making.

  29. I can see other's point of view but I disagree. Most often these situations occur on Lone Star. There are enough places to fish there is no need to fish elbow to elbow. Today when I was there I counted 6 people. Six total players for the whole lake and someone is hitting you in head with a rod????? First, it's not sociable. If you believe it is, then go buy some real fishing gear, go to the nearest lake and walk up to the nearest stranger and try throwing your line on top of his/hers. Hit the stranger with your newly purchased rod. Try to stand between him/her and the fish they are fighting. Then excuse you bad behavior with, "I was only trying to be sociable." Or would you even consider such a thing? If you want to be sociable send me a message and ask for help. I'm always more than willing to share what I know (if I know the answer). But such things are never sociable in real life and only tolerated in gaming. Secondly, no one should have to alter the game settings to prevent clowns/idiots/level climbers from interfering with the players. Let the clowns/idiots/level climbers alter the settings so no other player has to put up with them. Yes, it does work both ways. But the clowns/idiots/level climbers won't alter the settings since they can't play the game and need someone to irritate for their own amusement when they fail at catching fish. The much simpler solution is to remove the names from the screen. Then if anyone wants to be sociable they have to send a message (which is the sociable way of doing things in the first place). The other method would be a barrier between each player, say the length of the rod they are holding, so there is no thrusting and parrying going on, and no one need to be bothered with the jokers who can't play to save their life, and have nothing better to do than ruin the game for those who do enjoy the puzzle, exploration, and fishing. As it is, the most enjoyable lakes are the northern lakes that allow kayaks or boats. Less level climbers and more fisherman in those places. Yeah, you still have a few who need to see if they can cast into your boat. Happens in real life as well so we can say that's just human nature (where its not human nature to walk up to stranger and hit him in the head with a rod and reel). I presume its not unheard of for someone to stand in their boat and try casting to hit the people on the dock! But that would be just part of the game, right? Or would that be someone trying to be sociable as well? The game is great fun. Its some of the people who ruin it.

  30. Yeah, still true to this day. It doesn't take the so called pro-gamers long to figure out how to level up without actually playing the game. They don't find it cheating. It's just testing the limits of the game. In their minds its only a data bit. And there are plenty more where that came from and no effort expended to learn, explore, or enjoy the game. Its achieving something for nothing with no personal effort involved. The worst thing the developers did was identify all the players on the lake. Now every, what you call idiot, who only wants to level up watches the chat panel to see who is catching what and when they see something interesting/they need, they look around the lake to see where the person is fishing and rush over to cast right on top. In real life they'd end up hurt, or in a hospital but they see no reason not to do the stuff online they would be afraid to do in person. Its easy to tell who they are. They are the ones doing the stupid things. Some try to block you on the small paths. Some try to block you from your rod holder (as if they could steal it). Some follow you to the offbeaten little nooks that you have to hunt to find. Then some will go make a video about their great discovery for Youtube likes. They don't know any other way to play without putting in the least effort and call it winning. And then these joker think themselves pro gamers testing the limits. What they are really doing is irritating the players who put in the hours to learn the nuances.

  31. Icing on the cake is that I just found a video how someone gets 2nd place in Saltwater Giants fishing in 1 spot only for the whole competition. Spot that everyone knows and use for farming. So knowledge and practice really doesn't mean anything anymore. Stop sharing this good or bad RNG crap. It is predetermined when you join the competition. The lottery is drawn at that moment. If you get a good result then you can compete with other players who got a good number as well. Otherwise you can just leave because the game will not allow you to compete. I would not be surprised if the odds would be better for you when you are a premium. So I challenge you to keep an eye on those top 10 spots in future competitions. How many of those players are premium and how many are not.

  32. I found the culprit. Weird that I never thought about it. It has been done on purpose when they released custom competitions 1st of April. After that release there is no point to practice anymore. Because game will semi-randomly decide if you are allowed to compete or not. 3 times out of 10 my baits/lures/rotations work and 7 times out of 10 it doesn't matter what I do, plan b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j. They don't work because the game has already decided to nerf you and there is nothing you can do. Why I say semi randomly. There has been 2 occasions when I won 2 comps in a day. Next 2-3 days after that were always horrible and I ended up losing ranking points even on competitions I knew well. Well that clear things up for me. A lot of free time just opened up so I can start playing other games. I used to spend 25-50h a week on FP. Can probably cut this down to 5h now and find other games to play.

  33. I can only speak for myself and I'm certainly not one of the best. But for those comps I consider myself good at, I kinda have a plan A, plan B, even plan C. With time you start to recognize when it's a good day, a day that will need more fight than usual, or simply a day that you are not (yet) equipped to handle. I often quit early in some comps when I detect my plan's not gonna work and I don't have a contingency plan.

  34. Difficult to say. There seems to be consistency for the top 20 players though. Keep in mind that some comps are more RNG based than others. Like catching the 1kg trout, the 6kg Muskie, and the 13.666kg ghost carp. the comp I have difficulty understanding is the cats and night catchers. Tried everything I could think of. If I start well, I dont finish well. If I start poorly, I finish strong. Go figure. A few days ago I saw a score of 300 points, which is off the charts. Guy must catch a fish every 2 minutes.

  35. I haven't bought this one, but judging from the pictures I'd assume that it's a 2-rod version of the Feeder Dream pack. The rod pod is missing, as well as the Creek Pro rod + Crucian Hunter reel. A little less bait, hooks, lines, feeder stuff, etc. But the reels are definitely a Breamer and a Big River, which is why the rods should be the Laker Pro and the Big Alli. The DLC rods & reels are most of the time differently coloured versions of the SE rods / reels that you can buy in the home shop for BCs. So until the devs (have you tried contacting them by email yet?) or someone who actually bought it can shed some more light into this, here's my best guess: UL-CHUBER™ Laker Pro 370 SE - Schnurgewicht: 2-6 kg UL-CHUBER™ Big Alli 420 SE - Schnurgewicht: 3-8.5 kg UL-CHUBER™ Breamer 4500 SE UL-CHUBER™ Big River 6000 SE UL-CHUBER™ ChumChest Extra UL-CHUBER™ ChumChest Mini As well as a 2-rod bag, the keepnet (most likely GarryScott™ FishCabin M Plus), open and closed feeders, lines, hooks, bait, etc. The DLC jackets usually have a little less capacity than the higher level vests, but I don't remember how much exactly. Hope this helps with your decision.
