Newbie (1/14)



  1. So after taking a unwanted break for six months due to my old computer finally dying, I come back to Fishing Planet, with a wonderful new gaming rig, and....after about ten fifteen minutes the game starts to stutter, regardless of what tackle I am using, or the graphic settings. So I started diagnosing things, my cpu and gpu never go over 50%, the ram usage never goes over 30% so the issue is not my computer bottlenecking. I have filed several reports, and keep getting a 'we are aware of the problem' email. So in the meantime I am reaching out to the community to see if anyone has found a workaround, because I would very much like to get back to making my guide videos.
  2. Yeah those are the same spots I was fishing, with a 3/0 walker and a 3/0 frog popper. might have been your bait and hooksize, which is kind of bullshit cosidering every single effin tournament I've joined it's just been an effing massacre, even the lakes I know inside and out like Oregon, they fuck with the spots and the bite rate, unless you know EXACTLY the spot to manipulate the RNG. I'm very happy for you winning, hope you make it all the way to florida and win the whole thing. I will not be entering another competition until they add 3rd party anti cheat to the game.
  3. Achievements, and seasonal events yield coins pretty well, leveling as well, you can try competitions but they are a bit one sided normally.
  4. I was fishing the same spots, with the same lures, there are only like 5 spots for bass in NC in total, only three produce trophies. You are telling me that it was all RNG over two hours of gameplay? I don't believe it. If you pardon the pun, something is fishy.
  5. They need to take a look at this for real. The latest bass derby for example, I worked my ass off to put 49 lbs of fish is the boat, finished number 41 well outside the #30 required to proceed, everyone above me had 50-55 lbs. now it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that, that's an average of 5 pounds per fish. That is ABSURD. Especially considering the big trophies in NC max out just above 6.5. I have always championed this game, and defended it, but I am disgusted with the amount of cheating in competitons.
  6. Oh heck, I thought this was for PC. Thank you though.
  7. Is the ubersheet still valid? If so can someone link the new address for it please
  8. I am well aware money is not an issue for top rank, i also think a rank should give more than one coin. before they added Louisiana you had plenty of bait coins, but nothing to spend it on. Now you have less coins, and plenty to spend them on, There should be a balance somewhere. Again, I understand the reasoning behind them taking the bait coins away from uni catching, as I used to sit on the North Carolina map, and farm the Unique Redear Sunfish with the rest of the game. They realized at the rate people made coins before they would never sell them or make revenue on them, and I totally get that it was taken to give them the ability to make money on coin packages. I just believe reducing the uni catch rate would have been a effective mid ground, because lets face it the really good purchases with coins, cost some serious coins, the advanced unlimited licenses are the only thing that should be bought with coins, and I even want them to have an optional ability to be bought for some absurd amount of fish bucks. The balance is what is making new players stop playing, not the game it's self. The game it's self is highly addictive and very enjoyable to play, but as a player that has been around since before Louisiana and the new economy was added, I feel newer players are missing on some of the charm this game used to have and I frankly feel bad for them. Maybe it's me seeing things through rose-colored glasses.
  9. everyone hates that bird in Florida, I'd shoot the thing with fireworks if I could find it.
  10. So first off, let me start off by saying, I've been playing since before Louisiana was added and I absolutely love this game. I also know the small development team can only do so much but I think there are some small quality of life things that could be added to help make the game even better than it already is. I will list them below, and I would love some constructive input from others, as well as the developers. 1. Make unlimited licenses purchasable with fish cash OR baitcoins (I understand it was done to make revenue, but there should be an option for both) 2. Adding new lures like lipless cranks, buzz baits, and rigging options for softplastics 3. Bite ratios need some love, one example is the flatheads in Nerrehin River, they bite too slow 4. Kayaks being tipped by small fish (I thought I died the first time this happened) 5. Increasing durability on equipment (trout fishing currently kills equipment super quick) 6. The ability to put a rod down and use another while you wait for a bite should be added 7. Bottom fishing 8. Unique fish should grant small amounts of bait coins on top of their cash (i'm thinking between 3-5 coins per fish) 9. Reducing travel costs by 25-30% (look at what it did recently for Missouri) 10. Every lake having at least one unique These are just some thing I think would make this game even better.
  11. Well Kayaks being out next week make me excited, the question is how they will be implemented cost wise and where they can be used, mind spreading a little light on this?
