  1. Thank you to all who participated... it was a grand turn-out for Hilrond. Congratz to the winners: DFA_CupOfJoe, PH_Speedy and PH_WarlordSully. Random Draw winner: FU_Jukeboxknocks. Sully donated his DLC to the random draw: gratz to J_3. Tight Lines, Talon
  2. Because Microsoft dictates what goes and what does not.
  3. the total casting weight includes everything attached to the main line (which is attached to the reel): sinker/feeder, chum (if any), hook, bait. I don't know the specifics of each weight, but a little experimentation shows a reasonable suggestion... use the smallest sinker/feeder above the minimum casting weight for the rod. remember, the chum has weight too, so this is an often overlooked part of the calculation. in the op, it would appear the weight of the bait, added to the 50g sinker exceeds the 120g max casting weight of the rod. tight lines.
  4. We will be hosting another Community Event for the Fishing Planet Community (PC Only Steam). This competition is in memory of two friends we lost this year. Alex, one of the original FP development team, and PH_Hilrond, long-time leader of ProHookers and a well respected and much loved member of the FP community. Both lost their battles with cancer and will be truely missed by those of us whose lives they touched. The event will start Friday, October 11, 12:01 pm EDT and end on Friday, October 18 at 11:59 am EDT. We will be fishing in Louisianna (Quanchkin Lake) for Alligator Gar, Bowfin, and Bluegill. The biggest fish of each species caught during the event time may be entered. (NOTE: You must be registered on the Fishing Planet forums and also have a Google Account to be able to utilize the Entry Form.) Take a screen shot of your fish in your hand with the full UI. At the start of the event we will post a code to be typed in the chat window when you take your screen shot. Your Steam Screen Shot links MUST end in /?id=xxxxxxxxxxxx! AT THE END OF THE EVENT ENTRIES WITH INCORRECT SCREEN SHOT LINKS WILL BE DISQUALIFIED! Watch the video below. You can use any tackle. Rod Stands are NOT allowed. The fish weight (must be in pounds, so use you must use the Imperial setting in-game) also, the weight and screen shots of each of your fish need to be put on the Entry Form within an hour of the fish being caught. Please keep in mind that the Entry Form will be closed immediately at the end of the event. A link to the Entry Form and Standings Page will be posted at the start of the Event. As you catch bigger fish you can edit your entry on the entry form. Scoring will be done by average, the total weight of your fish divided by 3 will be your score. Fish caught during official in-game competitions will not count. (NOTE: You must be registered on the forums and also have a Google Account to be able to utilize the Entry Form) Prizes: Metalhead Boat DLC’s, Daredevil Boat DLC’s, Carp Lord DLC's and Golden Dragon DLC's. 1st place gets first choice, 2nd place gets second choice, 3rd place gets third choice and the remaining DLC will be given by random draw from 4th place to 25th place (must have one fish of each species entered to qualify). SCREENSHOT CODE: gramps Entry Form: https://forms.gle/DqoQEstMSRsWYw3S6 (closed) Standings Page: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1628MsTylRtpCrTZvm5MJqHtHyweb2WIBY0uCqkIAeOQ/edit?ts=5d83cebe#gid=368887694 Screen shot video: (one change to the video, in the video it says hit the Tab key to go into the chat box. Now, you have to put your cursor into the chat box and left click.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc9FQwHRU5E&t=5s
  5. tap the tilde/back quote key 3 times to reset the message window. this function is available to clear screen graphics at any time; there are some who like to fish without the graphics. tight lines.
  6. Appears to me you've been given a reasonable response from support. DLC items have never been recoverable, to the best of my knowledge; resetting your account will not give you any items once owned and later sold... it never has. It seems to me, based on your OP, you made a mistake and want FP to return items from a DLC which you sold... in which case you are expecting someone else to pay for your mistake.No reasonable person would expect such a thing. Email to Support for such a reason is a waste of time for everyone involved - including the OP. End of thread.
  7. the speed can increase when travelling with a stronger current... it can also slow down when travelling against that current. strength of the wind may cause the same speed fluctuation. since the trolling motor isn't intended to cover long distances, it usually isn't noticeable.
  8. As far as i know, new maps will be added... though i have no idea when. as far as other content, you will need to ask the devs.
  9. The blame belongs to Microsoft, not FP. it took a lot of time just to get FP on Xbox 1. the inclusion of the SLCs was limited by Microsoft itself. future updates to FP on Xbox 1 will be approved by Microsoft and added as soon as that approval is given.
  10. an active license is required to catch any fish in any waterway. the expiration time is clearly stated for any license you buy, so attention must be paid to avoid a fine for hooking a fish too close to the time your license expires. even if a fish is hooked while the license is active, if the license expires before it is landed, the rules are violated.
  11. note: telescoping rods can't be turned off... only match rods will switch between flop and normal casting.
  12. have fun, make money, and try yet again to best Hilrond… what's not to like?
  13. looks to be another grand adventure... lookin' forward to it.
  14. another squeaker, Hil… gratz to all. Didge.... Hil is Gramps (i'm Pops roflmao)
