  1. Hi, anglers! Many of you probably have been wondering what’s coming next in Fishing Planet. We are happy to tell you what we have been working on since the release of Marron River in Bolivia. Right now we are finalizing a new waterway - the maze of islands and canals of Amazonian Maze in Brazil, which we plan to release in 3-4 weeks. A curious maze of islands, canals and bays has found its place a couple of hundreds kilometres from where the Rio Negro joins the Amazon. Tiny pockets of civilization spring out here and there among the impenetrable equatorial rainforests: Indian villages and oases of tourist life. The hot humid air is filled with the chirping of birds and the smell of wild orchids. This is the place we chose for you to explore the labyrinth of the wild Amazon and experience an unforgettable fishing adventure. Since our fishing location is situated near the equator, the weather is humid and hot here almost all year round. For your trip we have picked the end of the dry season. Although the rain frequency and intensity are increasing gradually, the water level remains low and there’s maximum fish activity. The waterway’s shoreline is incredibly varied: you can come across rich vegetation, rocky cliffs, sandy beaches and humbly equipped local piers. The location is almost as large as Blue Crab Island. It’s designed to be one of the most expansive in our game, and that’s why it has the biggest variation in depth: from 15 metres ( 50 feet) in the streambed to almost 2 metres (6 feet) in shallow bays. Not all areas are passable by a motor boat, so players should take care when choosing their navigation route, so that they wouldn’t run aground. As for the waterbed structure, it also varies significantly. The river streambed and deep watercourses mainly have clay bottom with scatterings of sandy areas (in places with largest differences in depth and close to prominent sand banks). Shallow bays and backwaters might have a muddy bottom. In many places, especially in shallow areas, the bottom is covered with vegetation. The waters are of a pronounced brown color, but rather clear. Local anglers tell stories of a peculiar Amazon dolphin that can sometimes be seen around. They say whoever comes across it will have good luck, so keep an eye, maybe you will get a chance to meet this rare animal. The waterway will house nine main locations, which is the largest number within our game. All locations are unique and will captivate even the most seasoned players: Flor de Pedra, the “Stone Flower”, Rio Grande Hotel, Orchid Shore, the Old Temple, St. Sebastian Church, Mboya Village, Acanga, the Stilt Hut, and Pindobusu Beach. Let us transport you to the Acanga location for a moment. There is a far-off islet in the eastern part of the tributary, which is considered among locals to be a place of spiritual power. According to official data, most Brazilians are Catholics. But here, in the midst of the rainforest, some people still practice ancient shamanic cults as well as Christianity. Their traces can sometimes be found in similar hidden corners of the jungle near Indian villages. Peculiar carved stones, shrines designated for mystical rituals, statuettes of gods and skulls of sacrificial animals clearly signify a place of religious worship. Entering such a place, try to be respectful and not disturb the local shamans (and local spirits, of course)! Let us not forget about fishing! Watch the slick spines of Amazon fish swimming around under the reddish black water. The exact number of species inhabiting these waters is yet to be determined, but you can definitely come across the unique Arapaima, the giant Piraiba, and even the rare Electric Eel! You’ll be able to catch 24 fish species in total, six of which are unique and introduced to our game for the first time. And if you’ve been dreaming of catching an actual shark, you’ll have that possibility now! Remember that Bull Shark frequently visits the waters of the Amazon Maze to snack on some local delicacies. In order to catch such giants we have, of course, prepared new kits of excellent tackle to be purchased at our store at the waterway, or at our new Premium Store. But take care and don’t leave your rods unattended: local monkeys are very curious and are always ready to steal a fun item just when you’re not looking. Also note that with the launch of this Brazil location, the maximum level for all players will be increased to 70. Unfortunately, this waterway concludes our Amazon series. But don’t be sad, because there is still the vast and exciting world of Fishing Planet waiting to be explored in the future.

  2. Chapter 1 "FORMA MENTIS" and White Moose Let's talk about two much loved spinning competition to explain what I mean by "FORMA MENTIS": Triple Trout and Big Red Fish. Identify the spots that can give us the desired prey, identify the baits that give the best results and in what times. Be ready to quickly understand when you are wasting time and change the necessary. The competitions examined have the same duration, 45 minutes, but two completely different approaches. These two ways of dealing with them will recur for many others. I mean as a mental disposition. Triple trout: we divide the competition into three halves of 15 minutes each. 1st spot - 1st quarter Here we must take, within the first quarter, 1 unique lake trout (pt.10) 2 lake trout trophies (pt.10) 1 unique splake (pt.12) 1 trophy splake (pt.6) not necessarily: 1 single brook (pt.8) 1 tropical brook (pt.4) A number of common, at least 4 (pt.8) for a total of about 45-58 points in the first quarter. When we are trained to achieve this result in the first half we move on to the second. 2nd and 3rd spot 2nd quarter time If we didn't get the only one from the brook in the first quarter we have to get it here. 2 trophy lake (pt.10) 2 trophy splake (pt.12) a number of common of all species (pt.10) 1st Spot - 3rd quarter now let's go back to the first spot where they should regenerate: 2 trophy splake (pt.12) 2 trophy lake (pt.10) 1 brook trophy (pt.4) a number of common of all species. (pt.10) The total of points with this round is ideally 126, you win even with less. If you have grasped the concept of time and generation, just train. So we shot three spot at regular intervals, not going back and forth like the fools. We have identified which fish we need to obtain and at what times. We have a "round". The "round" is something that we must remember for almost all competition. The unique of the lake trout can be taken in the first launches, so I suggest you give it a try right away with the roach spoon or the like. With the sun she will eat immediately under the surface of the water or in the fall, if it doesn't happen, don't despair and stop and go to the bottom. However, if we didn't catch it on the third launch change lure and switch to the narrow spoon 21g. # 3/0 better yet x-series narrow barbless spoon 14g. # 3/0. 36g # 4/0 x series bullet spinner is also fine. Experiment and find the one that satisfies you the most. Stop and go on the bottom is certainly the technique that gives the best results. As the lure descends, move it slightly to keep the line under tension. BIG RED FISH: Here too we have the famous round. The tour gives us the times, going randomly from one spot to another leads to nothing. In this competition we have the case in which what really matters is the lure and the technique, taking for granted the mindset of the round. I repeat myself but it is important that I try to make myself understood. We divide the lake into 5 sectors, in the center of which we will have markers for the trophy. The bait to be used is only one (more unique than rare case) and it is this: The technique is more difficult, if only for the patience it requires. Stop and go to the surface of the water. your cranck must never, and I mean never, sink. It should launch around 50 meters stop and go up to 28 meters and then recover quickly. Optimizing times with catches, it is useless to waste time under 25 meters, except in sector 4 and 5 where you should launch around 38 meters and recover up to 15 mt. We start from the first portion on the left, even if we take the trophy we continue we start until the fish come out. At the first empty launch, change part of the lake passing through the center of the wooden quay, then all the way to the right of the quay. Let us remember that he will not give us more than 4 trophies in the whole competition if we are lucky. 3 we expect them. The first 3 portions we take from "Fisherman's Hut", the other 2 spawns "Damn Road". If you follow these tips they will surely be in the first positions, just see the same names all the time. In chapter 2 we will go to Marron River for other techniques but with the same mentality, If you have favorite competitions that you want to give priority to leave a comment below. For any doubts leave a comment below. For those who hate me: fuck you.

  3. Hello anglers! A lot of time has passed since our last Diary. We wasted no time and can finally tell you about our new big update that we’ve prepared for you — the Congo River! You will be able to explore the Congo River on Steam late November — early December, and on consoles in a couple of weeks after that! Here, in the heart of Africa, the vast tropical rainforest covers both banks of the great Congo River, the deepest river in the world. This unique biome is home to hundreds of unique mammals and thousands of bird and fish species. This is where the last corners of the wild, unexplored nature are hidden. So what can our anglers expect from the Congo River? In its middle reaches (just below Boyoma Falls), the river flows through the territory of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and consists of a chain of lake-like pools with a huge number of islands overgrown with tropical forests and impassable swampy stretches of land. The pond is located on the equator, that’s why the weather is hot all year round. Frequent fogs and strong intermittent rains give way to heat and high humidity. But then the low water season (or dry season) comes, bringing excellent conditions for fishing! The pond is practically devoid of emergent vegetation. High coastal grass only grows near the banks, in shallow creeks and channels, resembling a thick wall. Running muddy water flows north to south, characterized by a weak current in wide areas and a medium current in narrow stretches. The average depth of the river in these places is about 4–7 meters. And on vast shoals and in narrow channels, the depth ranges from 1.5 to 3 meters. The bottom of the central deep-water channels is mainly clay-earthen, with small sandy areas. However, on the shores overgrown with grass, as well as in shallow bays and creeks, it is muddy.The southern part of the pond features a rocky bottom. At the Congo River, we have prepared as many as seven locations. There are few of them: Cable Ferry Wild Islands Bomuna Settlement Hanging Bridges The Congo is generally not the easiest place to fish, and you’ll have to do your best, but your efforts will be rewarded many times over! After all, we have introduced 17 absolutely new species of fish, including some unique African endemics such as: the Nile Perch, which can reach a weight of about 200 kilograms, as well as the Goliath Tigerfish, and the African Tigerfish are the main targets for which anglers come to Africa from all over the world! And believe us, these are some of the most coveted trophies for anglers from all over the world! Of course, we couldn't leave you unequipped for battles with such monsters. That’s why we’ve prepared some unique baits for you, such as Caddis Larva, African Giant Water Bug, and Banana Bread. In addition to that, you’ll be able to use some real delicacies when fishing for the voracious African predators: Canned Meat, Buffalo Kidney, and Small Tilapia. So get your best gear ready, friends! After all, you’re about to have the opportunity to explore these amazing fishing grounds and test your skills on the African continent!

  4. So....Bismarc Some of those names you are complaining about are actually Beta Testers 24/7 while you are out enjoying your comps and tournaments and reporting bugs most of those people are in That same test server even after Maps are released to help fix bugs for all of us to Enjoy the Game. So when you think anyone has an advantage I understand how you think the way you do, but there are too many things to test to be worried about fishing spots, for starters We have to fish for them to make sure they exist, give you good money, XP etc. I play comps and i have played many comps with you and i suck! I never win but i join for the fun yet I tested for a while... and still have no 2 week advantage? Also may I just add that "Practicing for anything on Test server is NOT ALLOWED"

  5. 54 minutes ago, Kee said: Look at you suck ups 54 minutes ago, Kee said: Do you mean for the broken game? If the game sucks so bad and is full of bugs then why do you care that you haven't gotten the new venue. Im sure they wish it was out on Xbox / Windows 10 as that would bring in more revenue (Dlc and premium ) . It either didnt pass certification or Micosoft is just slower this time . Relax and enjoy the game or delete it and move on .

  7. Rig Basics and Perch Rocket Science at the Congo and Beyond PART 1: Rig Basics Hey, Musette. Why are you doing a tutorial on Rigs? Why bother when there are so many other less complicated methods of fishing? For the same reason I started my carp diary back in the summer of 2020. Groundbait mixing was misunderstood and the people who actually knew how to create mixes for 40kg carp were often harassed by those who didn't know how to mix groundbait. Now the field of groundbait has become so refined that we have mad scientists who create groundbait that break the 50kg barrier in Germany and are close to breaking 50kg in UK. Groundbait mixing is a heck of a lot more complicated than than rigging. If this mad scientist can conjure monster carp effortlessly with groundbait, surely I can crush rigging. Besides, rigging is such a sexy, SEXY angling beast. The method behind rigging is all about slow, tantalizing seduction. Bass, trout, perch, catfish and predator fish are captivated by the alluring slither and scamper of prey kicking-up bottom debris and leaping up and down through silt clouds and vegetation. Essentially, you are coaxing the fishing AI to generate a fish that will continue to follow the lure and strike at it multiple times up to and even under your boat. Phenomenally, rig fishing defeats the 12-13 meter distance nerf where the fishing AI will either send a BOLT command to a following fish or a CEASE fish generation command when the lure is too close to the angler. Furthermore, perfect rig presentation means that the first perch to attack will often be the school leader, a unique that matches the range size of your offset hook and range size of your softbait and color in relation to peak time and environmental conditions. Rigging is so deliciously wicked. If you know where to fish and how often the uniques and trophies are generated, you can fill a 700kg keepnet in less than 30 minutes through rigging alone. With lighter tackle, rigging has the force to summon uniques all over Fishing Planet with the right softbait lure. RIG STIMULI Visual disturbance by kicking-up bottom debris through scampering; Visual disturbance by rustling vegetation; Visual slithering movement that mimics larva, worms and tiny eels; Visual leaping movement that mimics decapods, larva, injured fish; Visual pop of color; Visual shape of soft bait; Sound clicking that mimics the snapping of decapods claws. RIG RETRIEVALS Full Sweep Side Sweep Combined Sweep A vertical twitch adds more kinetic energy to lift a tethered lure on a long leader, up above vegetation if fishing in tall grass for bass while sweeping. Sweeping deploys mostly stop and go or slow straight retrieval from side to side sweeping to produce scampering movement that disturbs silt and vegetation. While you can just use stop&go, twitch or straight retrievals, you are not focusing the full power of the force without the sweep, young Jedi. PRESENTATIONS 3-Way Rig: 3-Way Rig shines in silty river bottoms as it is designed to scamper and kick-up a lot of silt through it's use of dangling drop sinkers. The drop sinkers kick-up more silt than bullet sinker assemblies to create a robust visual disturbance while the leaping lure entices the perch to strike multiple times. Perch will follow the lure right up to the boat where it gets it's most lift. While glass beads can be attached to the 3-way to provide flash and sound, the FP packaging for 3-Way does not include beads. This assembly puts a high value on the large silt cloud presentation which mimic a stampede of scampering, panicking critters like shrimp, crayfish, prawns and scared minnows. This is my favorite rig for perch and catfish because I can control when to set the hook as perch attack can begin as the assembly glides to the bottom all the way to under my boat. Carolina Rig: Carolina Rig shines in tall vegetation lake and river bottoms and can hit all 7 attraction stimuli. The front loaded bullet sinker allows for the angler to slither the rig assembly on the bottom through grassy vegetation with short sweeping motion and jerks to lift the lure above the vegetation. The bullet sinkers kick-up a small cloud of bottom debris to create a visual disturbance while the leaping lure entices the perch to strike multiple times. Perch will follow the lure right up to the boat where it gets it's most lift. It's designed to make sound to further draw attention to the lure. A clicking sound is achieved through bouncing on the lake floor while a bullet sinker clacks against a glass bead. This assembly mimics slithering critters like larva, worms, and eels in addition to jumping critters like shrimp, crayfish, prawns and scared minnows. It also mimics the sound of crustaceans clicking their claws. Fish attack on this assembly midway and closer to the angler. Texas Rig: Texas Rig is versatile and hits all 7 attraction stimuli. It is capable of both slithering through vegetation and scampering through silt with it's back loaded bullet sinker. It's designed to make sound. The bullet sinkers kick-up a small cloud of bottom debris to create a visual disturbance while the leaping lure entices the perch to strike multiple times. Perch will follow the lure right up to the boat where it gets it's most lift. It's designed to make sound to further draw attention to the lure. A clicking sound is achieved through bouncing on the lake floor while a bullet sinker clacks against a glass bead. This assembly mimics slithering critters like larva, worms, and eels in addition to jumping critters like shrimp, crayfish, prawns and scared minnows. It also mimics the sound of crustaceans clicking their claws. Fish attack on this assembly midway and closer to the angler. RESEARCH DATA: Perch School Sampling Data:

  8. PART 2: 3-Way Rigging and Perch Rocket Science in the Congo For my first video, I'm going to demonstrate how to land (and launch!) those huge Nile Perch using a 3-Way rig. Note: If you are a carper, you do almost all your fishing in metric because groundbait mixing reasons. Apologies in advance if your mind is wired in imperial units. Jedi don't do imperial units. Included in this video are: How to set-up the complete tackle from Tropicana 220 casting rod to rig assembly. Pro-tip on river bottom terrain surveying Three retrieval methods: FULL SWEEP SIDE SWEEP COMBINED SWEEP 2x Nile Perch Schools with a total of 2x Uniques and 2x Trophies Bonus new Perch Rocketry Sport! Prior to level 80, you want to get the most powerful casting rod available, the Tropicana 220, Bailina 8000 casting reel, 40kg test braid, Titanium Leader 41.5kg test 0.48 at length .5 meters. The 40kg test 3-Way Rig is available early on for free by completing the Congo River Catfish Trial. Otherwise, you will need to wait till you are level 77 to purchase the 40kg test 3-Way with with 450 in cash. There are 3 different types of rigs. The Carolina, The Texas, and The 3-Way. I will be demonstrating the 3-Way in this video. I'll put together clips catching Unique Perch with the Carolina, Texas and 3-Way in my next video using a more advanced spinning set-up and show you how to balance the different rig assemblies to achieve perfect presentation. Once you attach your 3-way rig to the leader, you need to balance this set-up with 2x 56 gram drop sinkers. The sinkers come in packages of two. Use both sinkers because Fishing Planet is using Jedi math. Any other weight combination will throw off the action of the 3-Way Rig. Too little weight and the rig will tend to float more than drag the bottom and kick up silt. Too much dead weight, and you will have problems getting the lure to leap. Use a #11/0 or higher offset hook. Use a 15 cm shad as soft bait. The glow shad works both day and night in the Congo but works best at night. Ribbed Blue is best during the day Ribbed Pink during the evening and Glow Shad at night. Think of the 3-Way presentation as having a similar walking action on the floor of the river, as does a walker on the surface of the river. The 3-Way scampers across the bottom of the river bed kicking-up silt and disturbing bottom predators in the process. Meanwhile, the softbait bounces up over the silt to entice predators into attacking that tasty pop of colorful bait. This mimics the scampering of panicking decapods. Let's motor on over to the southern fishing buoy. There are 2 perch schools in casting distance of the buoy. I'm anchored over school 2 and will be casting about 40 meters out toward school 1 which swim around the area between those 2 markers in the distance. You can do rigging unanchored to cut down on some reeling time but repositioning the boat can get tedious. Also, the kinetic energy of reeling and river current, tends to make it a bit more difficult to control presentation as you drift away from the bouy. With rig fishing, you want to know if the river floor bottom is clear of debris that will snag the rig and also if there is bottom vegetation or silt. If the bottom has lots of vegetation, you want a more jerk intensive slither presentation. A Carolina or Texas rig is great for slithering through vegetation. If the river floor is mostly silty, which this area of the Congo is, you want to use wider full sweep and side sweep presentations. I prefer 3-Way rigs for silty presentations because the design mechanics of the 3-Way causes more silt disturbance while sweeping. The silt disturbance tells lurking predators that a stampede of yummy critters is in the area. I'm using a bottom rod to scan the surface of the river floor where the perch swim. The floor in this part of the Congo river is silty with no vegetation. There are bumps and small dents along the floor to help bounce the softbait up and down. The depth of the water is about 9 meters. Always do this simple check by using a bottom or carp rod whenever fishing an area you are not familiar with. This simple test helps you triangulate spodding distance versus bottom rod distance if you are catfishing or carping. It also helps you adjust match rod leader length. But more importantly, It helps you decide what kind of fishing method and retrieval to use when lure fishing. According to the bottom rod scan, depth is 9 meters near the markers. If you check the sonar display near your feet, the depth is at 7 meters. This means that you will have a little bit of resistance dragging the rig toward you as the river current rushes toward the water fall ahead. You will need to weight your rig according to the weight load of your rod versus water depth, and strength of the current. For the Tropicana 220 casting rod versus Congo river dynamics, 2x 56 gram drop sinkers have just the right balance to keep the rig on the bottom kicking-up silt while the lure bounces. Anything lighter will cause the whole assembly to have too much lift. Anything heavier will turn assembly into dead weight. It takes a little bit of experimentation to properly weight your rig assembly for perfect presentation under different conditions and rods. Perfect presentation, aside from my detailed dissertation in rig dynamics means that the fishing AI generates a fish that will continue to follow the lure and strike at it multiple times up to and even under your boat. This is phenomenal as rig fishing defeats the 12-13 meter distance nerf where the fishing AI will either send a bolt command to a following fish or a cease generating a fish command when the assembly is close to the angler. Perfect rig presentation also means that the first fish will often be the leader of the school, a unique that matches the range size of your offset hook and range size of your softbait and color in relation to time and environmental conditions. While I did choose a #11/0 offset hook because this is the largest offset hook a fresh level 75 visitor to the Congo can obtain, I have fun science motives for the #11/0 offset. However, the reason I have come to absolutely love perch fishing in the Congo is NOT to catch the biggest unique. I want a particular trophy and unique range size to for rocket science reasons! You'll have to watch the video to see it to believe it. But, if leaderboarding the Congo is your thing, go ahead and use larger hooks. Happiness is combining both rocketry with fishing dynamics. Play Fishing Planet the way that makes you happiest. Sometimes it's all about the science. Sometimes it's all about variety and exploration. Sometimes it's about hamming the leaderboards. Sometimes it's about competing with each other. Sometimes it's about free styling what floats your boat the most. Enjoy the video.

  9. 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!

  19. Hi To be honest, I don't understand the excitement either. There are a few people in the water two weeks early, so what? 2 weeks are not years, that you have to catch up with them. It's just a game. The place in the ranking is not something for which you get money or any honors in real life. For my part, I'm looking forward to the new waters, regardless of whether I get access to it earlier through a beta account or with the next update.

  20. Hello to all. This forum is practically in agony. I would like to revive it, I will try to do it by putting a "column" on competitions, from the general plan and the mindset to keep in individual competitions. Before I start to devote some of my time to this project I would like to have some feedback to encourage me to do so. If anyone is interested leave a comment and I'll start posting my personal guides on "how to win a competition"

  21. Hallo liebe deutsche Community, ich fasse mich kurz: Lasst uns den Entwicklern zeigen, dass auch wir verdient haben, ein Boot mit Rutenhaltern zu bekommen, ohne ein DLC kaufen zu müssen. Kommentiert diesen Beitrag wieso DU denkst, dass wir auch ein Boot mit einem Rutenhalter verdient haben! Vergisst nicht diesen Beitrag ein zu geben, damit dieser Beitrag auffällt! Dies soll kein "Hate" Beitrag gegen DLC Spieler sein! Jeder kann kaufen was er mag, jedoch ist es sehr Unfair, meiner Meinung nach, dass "Free to Play" - Spieler einfach überhaupt kein Boot mit diesem Feature erhalten! So wird die Community gespalten und ich finde dies ist Diskriminierung gegenüber Spieler, welche z.B. kein Echt-Geld für das Spiel ausgeben wollen/dürfen/können...

  23. When the trophy blackfish was the rarest fish in the game, Del is the only one I know to have caught it on purpose, meaning he caught it on the suggested insect baits, and he did it on two different platforms. Del was a true student of this game, a very meticulous fisherman, and a great friend to those of us lucky enough to have known him. I will miss our conversations and hope to meet up with you one day at that big lake in the sky, I'm sure you'll already have all the best spots sorted out. Rest in peace my brother.

  24. I think this was in the forums before. Somewhere. Can't find it. Would be great to have an option to turn down the rodpod beeps separately. I think it's linked to the ambient sounds. And while I love to hear the wildlife around me while fishing, the rodpod beeping gets unbelievably annoying

  30. Присоединяюсь к выше сказанному, и полностью поддерживаю, добавлю свои предложения по улучшению игры в целом, хочется получать от игры больше удовольствие! Предложение: 1, Предлагаю что-то сделать с жилетками-куртками, хочется надеть куртки из длс но теряется места в рюкзаке, добавить новую форму одежды набедренных сумок (или что-то в этом роде) которые можно одеть с куртками, которые будут продаваться в магазине за биткоины, тем самым компенсировать потери места! А то ходим как клоны, и в чем смысл курток из длс... Места важнее, но хочется и выделяется, хочется взять с собой больше на водоем и ничего не забыть. 2, Добавить в продажу фонарик в магазин за биткоины, что вам стоит перекрасить в другой цвет фонарик санты и добавить его в магазин? (также и рогатки)... Дом, добавить описание в меню “удилища и катушки”, к катушкам описание мощность фрикциона, неудобно открывать каждую катушку по отдельности и смотреть мощность фрикциона когда их у тебя 50 шт и более! 3, Рюкзак-Дом, после каждого действия в меню Рюкзак или Дом, меню прокручивается вверх (или в непонятном направление), очень раздражает когда собираешь удилища, или удаляешь ненужную вещь! (сделать чтобы меню не прокручивалось само по себе, а оставалось на месте где произошло действие) Исправить: 1, Исправить баг с отображением меню погоды по вызову клавиш, по истечению пару перемоток времени перестает “периодически” правильно показывать погоду! 2, Исправить шаблоны, собирает неправильную сохраненную сборку, часто ставит неправильную леску-шнур и т.д. Или же не может собрать некоторые сборки “определенное количество удилищ” хотя всё находится дома в Хранилище! Также если в сборке чего не хватает и горит красным, добавить возможность посмотреть чего именно не хватает, или по нажать отправить в магазин на данный товар и купить! 3, После краша, окончание соревнования, плохого качества соединения интернета, если в игре остается удилище на подставке, частенько теряется грузила, поплавок, крючок! Надеюсь данные посты дойдут до разработчиков, и примут действие по предложением от игрового комьюнити! Всем спасибо за внимание! Продолжение следует!

Yea great way to speak to people... Total lack of respect! You are the one who stated No you are wrong .Nobody truly knows why it was delayed besides Devs and Micosoft. All i said was they dont respond , i was refering to the forums because thats where are conversation was at. If you look at post i have made you would see that i try to answer or help in anyway i can . I guess i should have let you post sit there with no reply for days or weeks . Anyway im done with this conversation. Goodluck and Tight Lines.

  33. Hi You repeat your minimi again, 3 days after the update is out. Do you know the internal procedures between Microsoft and Fishing Planet? I do not think so. But I'm sure that Microsoft likes to make money without having to do a lot therefore, they will also insist that the updates are as perfect as possible, in order not to postpone further updates.

  34. Hi Regardless of what was on Facebook at that time or not, you are here in the Fishing Planet forum. And the information about the updates for PC and PS4 is also available here in the forum. The fact that there was no new information about the update on the XBox was most likely due to the fact, that they only publish informations ,when they are sure that the update works. Btw. Evidence on Facebook? Find the mistake.

  35. 10 hours ago, Rupert ruu said: No... You are wrong, they reply to PS4 and PC, proof is on Facebook. I'm a xbox ambassador and to see the fishing planet team not updating anything on xbox, is not very good. These people come here cry like babies when they dont like the answers they get . When I SAID they dont answers questions i was refering to these forums as that is where we are and the question was asked. I dont use social media as i want to avoid ignorant people so wouldn't know what they do on Facebook.

  36. A few people have mentioned that they would like colorized markers to distinguish one marker from another, possibly indicating different fish caught. While that is definitely an improvement, I would suggest a marker with a bright beacon, and the ability to turn on/off the beacon when opening the waterway mini map. This will provide 2 improvements The ability to see distant markers on cloudy days The ability to turn on certain markers when targeting a particular fish

  38. so ive been fishing in cali for 3 weeks and 2 days now, and have managed to haul lots of cash amounting to 3M+ in-game cash. couldnt have done it without the help of @kdog013, @PokerXXL, and @AlteredApe. Thanks a bunch master anglers! also, im now level 51, thats 13 levels farming sturgeons in cali! i really appreciate the help guys, and gals! for the benefit of everyone who might be wanting to earn cash, or just to level up, i think cali is a great place once youve unlocked it, and have a decent keepnet/stringer. i think at least 150kg/330lb would do fine. if you have something bigger, the better. fish at night, 9pm to 5am, then fast forward to 9pm again. real easy! :D cheers!

  40. Glad you got it sorted, but I would go catch some rowdy bass and leprechaun fish for baitcoins. You can always go back to Cali next week when the St. Patrick's day event is over.

  42. Definitely. Depending on the peaks you should be able to 3 at 9pm, then 3 @ 11pm, 3 @ 1 am and 3 @ 3am, hit fast forward to next night and boom, money. Rinse and repeat until so bored you can't stand the site of sturgeon. They didn't call the comp Sturgeon In The Dark for nothing Good luck.

  44. Participating in custom comps for tour practice is a good idea, you can also create a custom comp with the same weather/time/details as the tour and ask a friend to join for practice (you need one more person to start a custom comp and the don't even need to play, just join/ready)
    3 points
  45. Not many tips i can give as i really dont play comps or Tournaments anymore but im sure there are custom comps for each venue to practice with the exact time and weather as each qualifier. As for time no you cant skip time , tournaments have the same start and end time for everyone just like comps.

  47. I do not understand the whole excitement. I myself have invested a lot of time to find the right setup and the right technology for me in the individual competitions and this time is also rewarded. i don't want to know how much time the top players invest! or do you believe every spot comes the big fish that you throw at it? At this point I would like to say thank you to the developers for a game that is really fun! thank you for your work!

  48. Suggest you do not sell your old tackle until your happy with your new tackle (in the future), don't know your level so don't know what you have access to. Log in 4 days in a row to get $3000 credits, buy the cheapest spinning rod available - Valuespin 190 level 3 $1250, add a level 3 or 4 spinning reel (MiniSpin 1200 (lvl 3 $650) or InspireCast 2000 (lvl 4 $850)), get level 3 or 4 Mono line ($180 - $260), get some Narrow Spoons 1/0 (lvl 5 $210), buy a 1 day Advanced Texas licence ($200). Total : $2490 - $2690. Go catch some Bass at Texas until you can afford to buy stronger (better) gear. Try saving up to go night fishing (Advanced licence required) at Lake Emerald, New York. Or you could buy a DLC pack if that is an option for you. HTH, GL.

  49. Hello there It would make perfect sense to have a rod stand alarm sound arrangement. The nature sound is beautiful, but the alarm sound is quite irritating. When trying to attract 4-5 fish at the same time, this sound reaches a very disturbing size. I think it is necessary to find a solution as soon as possible. Thnx
