  2. As we near the final stages of developing the new ocean map, we're eager to keep you in the loop about our progress. We understand your anticipation for the release, and rest assured, it's our top priority too. With this update, we're introducing several exciting new features, which is why we're taking the time to ensure everything runs smoothly. Today, we're here to offer you a sneak peek behind the scenes at the Fishing Together feature. But remember, this is just the first glimpse of what's to come in our Saltwater DevDiaries series. In the upcoming diaries, we'll dive deeper into details about the location, fish species, and new saltwater tackles. Fishing together with your friends on the same boat has been one of the most requested features ever! And we couldn't agree more. There's something truly special about navigating the ocean waters with your fellow anglers, developing a shared fishing strategy, and sharing in the experience while enjoying breathtaking sunsets. So get ready to see it all firsthand—we can't wait to show you more! Location Nestled in the East China Sea, close to the Japanese Archipelago, lies a picturesque gem known as Kaiji No Ri. This small island, embraced by the waves of the ocean, boasts an enchanting landscape that captivates the senses. With its beautiful views and serene atmosphere, Kaiji No Ri is a haven for anglers seeking both the thrill of the catch and the tranquility of nature's embrace. The new boats When it comes to ocean fishing, you'll need a sturdier vessel to tackle the waves. For now, you'll have two options at your disposal. You can opt to rent the Tsurihito™ Scutum™ Fishing Yacht, designed to accommodate two people onboard during the fishing together session. You and your friend can fish together using two rod holders each, while also holding an additional rod in your hands simultaneously. Alternatively, if you're the proud owner of the sleek Tsurihito™ Volans™ Fishing Yacht, you'll have the luxury of bringing along three additional friends. Hence, it will accommodate a maximum of 4 players onboard simultaneously for a Fishing Together adventure. Fishing Together If you're the host inviting friends, you'll be the Captain of the yacht. As Captain, you'll enjoy some cool bonuses, like getting to navigate the boat first or fast forward time for everyone onboard. However, with great power comes responsibility. You'll also be tasked with finding the best fishing spots and ensuring everyone has a great time. Your friends will receive the invitation and can accept it right away. However, it's important to ensure that the location is available for all the players, everyone has enough credits to cover the travel expenses to the island, licenses, and the cost of the stay. Just like in real life, it's all about planning ahead and making sure everyone is ready for the adventure. The first thing you would want to try is cruising around the island! The new map is going to be massive, offering plenty of space to explore. With dimensions of 20 by 20 kilometers, it covers an enormous area of 400 square kilometers. To put it into perspective, envision the size of all 24 existing maps in the game combined and then multiplied by at least 20 times. Plus, you'll have access to boats that are faster than the ones currently available in the game, making your cruising experience even more exhilarating. The view from both the captain's bridge and the lower deck is stunning. No matter where you are on the boat, you can always see each other and communicate easily in the Fishing Together chat. You'll have the freedom to switch places on the boat if there is at least one free spot, plus, the captain has the option to allow other players to take the wheel and navigate the yacht, adding an extra layer of teamwork. As you sail, you'll encounter various sights along the way, from regattas and ships to birds gracefully soaring overhead. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of dolphins or a huge whale swimming by! We will reveal more of those in the upcoming DevDiaries. All players aboard the yacht will experience the same time and weather conditions, which the host can select for the entire group. Additionally, the yacht will feature a storage space, eliminating the need for individual keepnets. Each angler onboard will have access to about 2000 kg of storage, ensuring ample room for everyone's catch. As the upcoming map will be significantly larger compared to all other locations currently available in the game, the exciting addition to the game will be special navigation buoys. These buoys can be strategically installed in preferred locations on the water, allowing for quick navigation to these spots with a simple click on the map. This feature will streamline the process of locating and accessing areas with abundant fish, helping anglers save time and maximize their fishing experience. Fish will dynamically move around the shores of the island based on various natural factors, presenting a challenge for anglers to locate them. To assist in this endeavor, players will have the opportunity to complete a special mission and receive a Saltwater Fish Finder as a reward. One more great thing about the Fishing Together feature is that every player earns additional XP for every fish caught when fishing with friends. If you're angling with your club mates, you receive extra XP for both club fishing and fishing together on one boat. And last for today’s Diary, but definitely not least, is a new fishing method. By casting your rods and placing them in the rod holders, then slowly moving the boat, you'll engage in trolling. This method involves dragging baits through the water to attract large ocean fish. To ensure an optimal trolling experience, the captain won't be able to ride the boat fast while the rods are cast. This restriction helps maintain a steady pace, ensuring the boat doesn't move too fast and disrupt the fishing process. There's nothing quite like the delight of fishing together with your friends aboard. Therefore, in the future, we are planning to expand the Fishing Together feature to all the Bass Boats in the game and you will be able to go fishing together with your friends in all the locations where Bass Boats are allowed. With shared experiences, a lovely backdrop, and the challenge to find fish on a huge ocean location, every moment promises to be fun. Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming update, as we continue to unveil the new features that await you. Until then, happy fishing and tight lines! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Follow us on social media to stay tuned and be in touch with our lovely community: Our Forum Discord Facebook Group Steam Community You are always welcome to ask for help in our support: support@fishingplanet.com *All visual content in this DevDiary is crafted to showcase the upcoming features; however, there may be slight differences upon the actual release of the update

  4. Hey Anglers, The whole Fishing Planet team is passionately working on the new features. This season will definitely be exciting for all players. We are delighted to open the curtain slightly and tell you more about what's coming on the air in the following months. Today we will briefly introduce Clubs, Saltwater Location, New Fishing Mechanics, and Fishing Together. These features are tremendous and highly anticipated, so we decided to make it a series and dedicate one of the upcoming diaries to each segment. So stay tuned; we have lots to share. But first of all, we want to say thank you to our Community! Your feedback is the basis for the development of The Fishing Planet game. You inspire us to push the boundaries and keep converting the passion for online fishing we all share into our game. Now let's jump in and review every new feature we prepare for you. Saltwater location As you know, we are working non-stop on our first Saltwater location. There is a lot of hype about it, and many of you have tried to guess where it will be on the globe. Let's see whose guess was the closest Our future location is a water area around a small island in the southeastern part East China Sea. Fishing on this island is possible all year round due to the warm climate, but autumn and spring are considered the most favorable times as typhoons might occur in the region in summer, and fish activity decreases in winter. The East China Sea around the island has a significant water exchange with the Philippine Sea and the Pacific Ocean, so you can expect incredible biodiversity and exciting challenges in catching all the fish. Saltwater is on its way. We look forward to telling and showing you more about it and will dedicate one of our next DevDiaries. New fishing mechanic There is one more thing we are very excited to implement in Fishing Planet, new fishing mechanics - pulling-up. The angler can easily spin the reel at maximum speed when fishing for small fish. However, as the size of the fish increases, it becomes more and more difficult to spin the reel. A certain threshold occurs when the force is applied at a heavy load. We are doing our best to reduce side effects and expand your fishing experience by bringing in a new pulling-up mechanic. Upgrade your skill set with a new pumping technique and catch the biggest fish like a pro. Fishing together We create a new type of boat for sea fishing with additional characteristics. Most importantly, new boats must be more significant and faster than the existing models because they must be stable in open water conditions of the ocean and sea. Having the bigger boat at your disposal means you can take your friends on board and go on the fishing adventure together. And last but not least, we prepared for your few really useful updates! Clubs With this new feature, you will be able to create your own clubs and hold regular events. Undoubtedly, it will help you connect with your friends and fishing enthusiasts to experience the world of online fishery to the fullest. Team up with a name and logo, create the unique identity of your club, and share your knowledge and experience. While fishing together in your club room, you will be gaining experience points but also will be able to help your mates out by exchanging baits and fish markers. Just like in real life, fishing with your friends becomes an event you are looking forward to where you can strategize, exchange your knowledge, and, of course, get lots of fun hanging out with like-minded people. This massive feature is in its final stages of development, and you will get to it in the upcoming months. Anti-cheat improvements The last feature might sound less exciting than the previous ones at first, but it's extremely important to the overall impression. Due to the increase in the number of cheating and exploiting the game mechanics, we have completely revised our anti-cheater policy and improved the anti-cheater system in the game, including crucial technical improvements. Thank you all for your reports and suggestions and for helping us improve Fishing Planet! The Fishing Planet Team is here to keep developing the best fishing simulator in the world, and we are incredibly grateful to our Community for sharing this passion! We thank you for bringing your impact to the table by giving us feedback, reporting bugs, being active in the Community, and sharing your knowledge with fellow players. In the upcoming DevDiaries we will get back to you with more information about new features! Stay tuned.

  6. Is this a sort of joke I just don't understand or have you genuinely used a scan of someone's hands and back/boxer shorts as a skybox?

  7. Cool for skool.......... looking forward to it, be nice if we could personalise our boats a bit (A boat yard? personal paint job, name, rod holder placement etc) even if it was just giving the boat a name of our choice........ any chance you could raise the avatar seating position in the Garry Scott™ Dráco™ Boat, so we have a better field of view?

  9. closed feeder for rivers with good flow and open feeders are better for ponds and lakes with no or very slow flow the idea being that with rivers with a good flow the closed feeder would release the chum at a slower rate to keep the fish feeding in same spot if u had open feeder in fast moving river your chum would get washed away a lot quicker and u would have difficulty in holding the fish in that spot so open better with no flow . well that's how it works in real life but don't know if it transfers to game same way
