  2. Yes, I think some sort of voluntary daily, weekly and/or monthly randomly generated waterway missions would be a good addition to the game. Maybe added to either the Inventory, Mission or Shop screens. (I have seen similar ideas to this suggested before)

  5. Hello Is there any news about the date or location of the new waterway?

  6. Try to find the fish at the waterway which give a good return of credits, aren't too hard to catch and doesn't fill your keepnet (or stringer) up straight away, stay at the waterway for multiple days by forwarding Time to either 5 am (starts a new day and empties the keepnet/stringer), the next peak period after 5 am or to the next night time peak period (there's no cool down penalty incurred for forwarding time between 9 pm - 5 am after the initial cool down for forwarding during the daytime to get to night time of course). (No cool down time penalties apply at Lone Star). Using a light spinning setup (maybe something like a lvl 3 ValueSpin rod, lvl 8 CrucianHunter 3000 reel and lvl 10 - 12 mono fishing line for starters) and some light lures (narrow spoon 1/0) might be cheaper than using bait at first. Always get an Advanced license, it allows you to decide which fish to keep or release, to fish at night and fish from a kayak/boat at appropriate waterways (a Basic license is not worth the hassle), check when it is due to expire regularly (select the Map tab from the Inventory screen or you could try pressing H). Upgrade your keepnet or stringer as soon as practicable, the more fish you can carry the more credits you'll get. At lower levels it might be better to use a stringer, they're cheaper and can hold more fish. The problem is you can't release (upgrade) a fish you've kept (like you can with a keeper) until you either start a new day or leave the waterway. Lone Star : Spotted Bass Rocky : Trout (all species) Emerald : Walleye (night fishing probably best) When a waterway first becomes available to you it's most likely your tackle will be under powered for fishing there. Maybe go for a short trip, see what it's like and then set about upgrading your tackle. Short version: Stay multiple days.

  7. Hi, Anglers! We are happy to present you with a detailed guide to all the unique fish that you can find on the Selenge River! The sharply continental climate holds the river in icy embrace for almost half a year, from November to April. Harsh winters and hot summers make early autumn an ideal time for fishing. In September, snow can already fall at night, which melts during the day. And just at this time, the Baikal omul, pyzhyan and taimen come here to spawn. You’ll have to take on such rare and feisty opponents as Humpback Whitefish, Lenok, Baikal Omul and, of course, the Khan of all salmon — Taimen! Siberian Taimen Siberian Taimen is the largest representative of the salmon family. It can reach over 60 kilograms in weight and up to 2 meters in length. It inhabits the cold rivers of Siberia and Mongolia and never goes to sea. It mainly keeps near deep holes close to the shore. This species is active day and night. In the daytime, the Taimen picks shaded areas, and at night it moves to the nearby shallows with a fast current. Preferred baits: Large Minnows, Common Minnow, Shiners. Preferred lures: Medium Spoon, Single Spoon, Bullet Spinner Crankbaits, Minnows, Mouse Lure Poppers, Walkers Soft Baits (Shads). Lenok Lenok is a predatory fish that inhabits fast rivers with cold water. It can reach more than 10 kilograms in weight and a meter in length. It prefers to hide among branches, stones, flooded trees, as well as keep to sections of the river with rifts and rapids. Lenok hunts at any time of the day, but most actively — in the morning and in the evening. Preferred baits: Grasshoppers, Dragonflies Bark Beetle Larva, Night Crawlers Natural Eggs, Spawn Sack, Boiled Red Roe Small Minnows, Common Minnow, Shiners. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Single Spoon, Bullet Spinner Mini Crank, Minnows, Mouse Lure* Poppers, Walkers Soft Baits (Shads, Grubs, Nymphes). Arctic Grayling Arctic Grayling is a relatively small omnivorous predatory cold-loving fish. It can reach up to 4 kilograms in weight and up to 80 cm in length. It lives in rivers, streams, and lakes of the Arctic Ocean basin. The Arctic Grayling prefers rapids and areas near large boulders, where reverse currents can occur, as well as places where branches of trees and bushes hang over the water. They are most active during the day, and hunt mainly in the early morning and late evening. Preferred baits: Grasshoppers, Crickets, Dragonflies, Mayflies, Caddis Larva, Bark Beetle Larva Artificial Salmon Eggs, Natural Eggs Spawn Sack, Boiled Red Roe Small Minnows, Common Minnow Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Single Spoon, Nano Spoon Spinners, Nano Spinner Mini Crank, Minnows, Poppers. Baikal Omul Baikal Omul is a schooling fish of the whitefish genus of the salmon family. It can reach about 3 kilograms in weight and more than 60 centimeters in length. It prefers deep places with clear cool water. This fish feeds around the clock, and it usually goes to shallow water to feed. It feeds on crustaceans, bottom invertebrates, and juvenile fish. The Omul bites well in all layers of water, but there’s more chance of catching it near the bottom. Preferred baits: Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms, Sideswimmers, Night Crawlers, Small Minnows, Common Minnow. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Nano Spoon, Spinners, Nano Spinner, Soft Baits (Craws). Humpback Whitefish Humpback Whitefish (Coregonus pidschian) is a schooling fish of the whitefish genus of the salmon family. It can reach more than 4 kilograms in weight and up to 70 centimeters in length. The Whitefish prefers places with a silty-sandy bottom, a weak current, and well-developed aquatic vegetation. Its activity peaks in the evening, but it is also active during daylight hours. In cloudy weather, it is active throughout the day. The Whitefish is an excellent fighter, so get ready for some impressive resistance from it. Adults feed at the river bottom on small mollusks, crustaceans, insects, their larvae, and eggs of other fish. Preferred baits: Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms Sideswimmers, Night Crawlers, Natural Eggs, Spawn Sack, Boiled Red Roe Small Minnows, Common Minnow. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Nano Spoon Spinners, Nano Spinner Soft Baits (Grubs, Craws). Common Dace Common Dace is a medium-sized omnivorous schooling diurnal fish. It can weigh more than one kilogram and reach about 40 centimeters in length. It lives in small rivers with clear water and moderate flow and is sometimes found in lakes or in brackish water at estuaries. Its juveniles often hide in holes and roots in coastal vegetation, and as they mature, they move to areas with faster currents. If you’re hunting for the Dace with a spinning rod, using twitch retrieve will help you a lot. Preferred baits: Semolina Balls, Oat-flakes Grasshoppers, Crickets Dragonflies, Mayflies, Flies Bark Beetle Larva, Night Crawlers Small Minnows, Common Minnow. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Nano Spoon Spinners, Nano Spinner Mini Crank, Minnows Poppers, Walkers Soft Baits (Grubs). Common Minnow Common Minnow is a small schooling diurnal fish, reaching the maximum length of 20 centimeters. It can be found in streams and rivers with cold, well-oxygenated water. It prefers to stay at a shallow depth with a sandy-stony or sandy-pebbled bottom. Preferred baits: Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms Pinkies, Maggots Natural Eggs. Amur Bitterling Amur Bitterling is a diurnal cold-loving fish that lives in reservoirs with stagnant or slow-flowing water. This elusive fish tends to keep in small flocks at depths up to 2 meters, in secluded and quiet places with a sandy or rocky bottom overgrown with algae. Preferred baits: Dough Balls, Semolina Balls Pearl Barley, Oat-flakes Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms Pinkies, Maggots. Oh and please note that the bite of some fish is affected by the direction of the wind!

  8. Hello. Thank you Killerwhale for posting your roadmap and things you are considering. Some feedback and thoughts from a player that has been playing since game released. 1. About your post I would be nice to see a DEMO video (work in progress) of the new fish fight and reeling. A short video so we can fully understand what is going to change. Because now I am thinking about how currently we NEED to reel constantly otherwise we get slack on the line and poof - fish gone. Again, a demo would be awesome to see to further this discussion. For pulling fish out of the water, I agree something needs to be done. Your proposal seems fine. Delay with breaking is also fine. But again, a demo would be best to see all of this in action. This is good. More events and fresh events are always welcome. I may be in the minority but saltwater fishing is really not what I am looking for in this game. It will be a cool addition but standing on a boat with just ocean around you is boring for me unless there are some deep mechanics involved. I play Fishing Planet for it's great lake\river fishing and ability to explore the waterways for fishing spots. We have awesome array of lakes\rivers to play on and I want more. But if more lakes are not priority and saltwater is, then fine. I will of course play it. 1. Clubs and Leagues are a MUST. Cannot wait for this feature 2. Skins... Since we probably won't be able to make skins for our rods and reels because they are mostly sold as DLC, I don't know what else can it be used for. I see stuff like markers and such and that is okay but it is really a minor thing. 3. Trophy room. Now this is a problem. We do not have a proper trophies to put in it except maybe giant Carps. Look... Currently we have Common, Trophy and Unique fish. All those fish have EXACT minimum and maximum weight\length foreach category. So for example if I catch a max weight Unique Largemouth Bass, I can put it in the trophy room but that is not really a trophy. Many players will have exact same weight and length Unique Largemouth Bass that I have and nobody can get further than that. After some months, everyone will have the SAME trophies as everyone else. There is not really a REAL trophy fish. For a trophy room to work we NEED a new fish weight\length type. It doesn't matter how the fish is called but it has to be RARE and HARD to catch. If you manage to catch that type of fish - that goes to the trophy room. This type of fish doesn't have to apply to ALL fish species in the game at the start. You can easily slowly add more and more of this "special" fish to the game. But for Trophy Room to work, we need a new fish rarity type. So for example a Largemouth Bass that exceeds maximum weight\length but is hard to catch. 4. Inventory system seems okay. Will take some time getting used to but we really need a inventory UI overhaul. I have over 1300 items in home storage and it is really not fun managing it all 5. Bugs and general improvements: of course, always good. Now for my feedback and kind of a wishlist: 0. I will try to avoid already asked and answered questions. 1. More tournaments. I already made a thread on the forums here: Tournaments always invite huge interest and many players come back for them. So even you as a company would benefit from it. Tournaments are 100x better than any competition and if we had multiple per month, I would gladly buy a Tournament themed DLC. 2. New fish type that is hard to catch but exceeds current Unique weight\length limit. A chase fish. I already wrote about this above but this in my opinion is a very good way to make players invest the time to find and catch that elusive fish. You can make it however you want but it has to reward lake exploration, persistence and at the end a great reward for the time spent: a REAL Trophy fish. I am sure this feature wouldn't be a problem to introduce and I am also sure that many players would devote their time to find great trophies over the fishing planet world map. We currently only have Unique fish that have set limit. It is just a grind on same fish over and over. There is nothing to CHASE. 3. Simple lure crafting system You already addressed this but I just wanted to add that if crafting is implemented, it needs to be simple and effective. Just a crude example: I want to craft a crankbait. Give me few options like: Color, Depth, Size, Hooksize. I pay for it (materials) and that is it. Again, this is just crude example but simple lure crafting would be really fun. It does not have to be a full blown crafting system for every little thing. Just the main things. People would have lots of fun with this system. Simple yet very effective. 4. Modular competition weather types and more competitions. Don't let a competition be 2 years old and still run on the same weather condition. It becomes boring real fast because it is ALWAYS the same except RNG. Put in modular weather changes so it rewards people who search for spots and invest in exploration. Competitions would be way more fun. Also, add more competitions. We already have many but you can slowly add new ones over time even on older lakes. 5. This is important for me. Do not forget old lakes. I know you cannot do much for older lakes and you have finite resources for future projects but doing just few improvements\additions on old lakes would be great. Maybe expand some a little bit, add new (or existing) fish species... I know old lakes will not be a priority but many players that have thousands of hours like to fish in old lakes. Improving them would go a long way. Also a new player would benefit from it. 6. Other general Quality of life improvements (most of this was already mentioned): - allow purchase of x-series or special lures (people lose a mission lure and cannot get it back) with either baitcoins or new currency. - Rework the Map device. In it's current state, it really looks bad. Please make a proper maps with depths and such. It would look better and would contain actual useful information. - Add all relevant info on the fish marker: Time of Day, Temperatures (Air\Water), Wind direction\speed - other information that was already mentioned in posts above. Again, thank you for the update and a chance to provide feedback. I didn't list everything I wanted to but maybe I will in a future post.

  12. I agree, give credit where credit is due. I love my new crank and have changed my tune with the eagle spoon as well, was catching LMB all night in Florida using just those two lures. I also bought the DLC for this event and both of the rod setups in it are excellent. Great job FP team, can't wait for the next one! On a side note, any chance of getting a candle for Washington's hat, or maybe an oil lamp?
