  1. https://imgur.com/a/4RjAv76 (I think the game should at least tell you that the connection to the server was lost. We only figured something was wrong after 10 minutes without a single bite / failed bite. Had to restart the game to even realize that it can't connect to the server at all. Every other online game kicks you out immediately when the connection is lost. But noo, not fishing planet. It lets you fish for a while, lose some time, and then kicks you out after 15 or so minutes )
  2. Quickest tourney of my life Definitely in the top 5 of my best gaming moments..
  3. Yeah, they added / changed the shaders or something with the 4.0.0 congo river update. You can read about it on steam in the update notes: The sunsets look really nice now, but for some cases, it's way too extreme. Especially in the night time, it's way too dark. Even with the headlamp, you can't see sh*t on Quanchkin Lake. haha. For the PC version, they added an option in the video settings to disable what they call "post fx" with the 4.0.1 update: Unfortunately, the console version(s) don't have the video settings tab at all. Which is a pity, as especially the PS4 version has gotten even more laggy than it was before. It's gotten to a point now where it's almost unplayable. Everytime you change spots, you gotta wait at least 5 seconds for the stuttering to stop, before you can even start doing anything. And the constant 3-4 second lags from previous versions of the game are still present. It'd be nice if they could give us the option to turn off post fx for more performance, too. Maybe even some options to turn down other aspects of the graphics quality as well. I don't care much for all the glowing and lensflare effects and orange sunsets when I'm in a competition, I must say. But I don't know if that's technically possible on consoles. Especially since I've not seen graphics options in other games, either. I guess they'd have to do different optimized versions for PS4 and PS5. And that's probably not gonna happen My friends who are already playing it on PS5 said that the performance issues are gone there. And I do understand that the game is primarily optimized for PC, and PS4 can't hold up with the hardware requirements anymore. But it'd be nice to have the option to play the game like it used to be, and trade away some of the nice graphics for a more stable experience.
  4. The Topic is from June 2019. 2 and a half years later, still no fix.. Makes you wonder why we even report bugs..
  5. Mighty Carp Qualifier #2 anybody? 2 hours beep beep bidibibeep beep
  6. Hey guys Can I join the rookie club?
  7. Hey guys, Just a minor thing, that's been present for a while now: If you travel to a lake, and don't have a license yet, the game pop ups a message telling you that it would be smart to buy one. From there, you can press a button (I think it's X on PS4), and get sent to the in-game shop, where it shows you the two licenses for that specific lake (basic & advanced), that can be purchased. If you do that with Alaska, it also sends you to the shop, but it doesn't apply the filter "Alaska" to the shop. It just shows every single license for every single lake. Which means you gotta scroll through the pages and find the one for Alaska. As I said, just a minor thing. But it's been present for months now. Thought I'd finally report it so it can get fixed for everyones convenience
  8. Please, can u guys look into this again? It's still not working for me for the spinning rods. As of now, one can only adjust the reeling speed once the lure is actually in the water. It's not possible to adjust it before you do the cast, and it's not possible to adjust it while the lure is flying. Casting rods work fine. Not too sure about match, feeder, and bottom rods, but it's not really as big of a matter on those, I guess (Talking about PS4 here.)
  9. 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
  10. Just a reminder. Differently colored buoys - maybe even flowing ones for the night and cloudy conditions (NL and quanchkin comes to mind) would be great!
  11. Should be easy to fix. Drop the support team an email (support@fishingplanet.com), so they can forward it to the devs. From my experience, they don't read the forums much. If you also got screenshots of the comps & players in charge, I guess it's only a matter of days to ban them. Thanks for sharing it with the community, though. Sad to hear that some people feel the need to harass other people. In a fishing game, of all places..
  12. Thank you for your suggestions, Musette! Highly appreciated that you take the time to reply Since I too have played both games for years, I at some point of course tried restarting the game - somewhere after 15 mins of no fish. Unfortunately that didn't help. Also, I usually go for balanced setups, and pay attention to the max test, to make sure it's not overpowered. Judging from what I see on streams and YouTube, I am usually even underpowered - as I like to have a little fight with the fish. Even though this puts me in a disadvantage. E.g. I still play spin the trout, dancing with Pike, and best 5 bass with a Jigwinner, Lucky Spot with a bass caster, etc. - while the top guys usually use way heavier setups. The more I play both games though, and test things out, the more I get the impression that the line visibility doesn't matter at all. Except from maybe titanium leaders, where the difference is noticable. But I've seen people fishing for trophy SMB on falcon lake with a Zeus, going for small trout and Pike with a Thetis, etc. Which is why - even though I would very much like the visibility to be a feature, I don't believe it to be implemented into the game. I am curious if you had different experiences? Coming back to the competition(s): I am at this point really frustrated and curious about what it could be that I'm doing wrong, and would be happy about any suggestions. I've had the same problem in the muskie topping event last time I've played it on TFM. In the whole 30 mins, I could not manage to catch a single muskie. No clear muskie, no regular muskie, no tiger muskie, nothing. Just 4 small Pike. And it's not like I'm playing those events for the first time. I've played them for years. And it's ok if I can't catch enough fish, or not the right weight. But no fish at all? I usually test my setups, spots and lures at the lakes before, and make sure they're good to go. I manage to catch a lot of target fish in the exact weather conditions and time frames. And then in the comp there's no fish at all? I go through all the spots I know and gathered from friends and YT / twitch. I test different lures & colors. I even switch reels and lines, to make sure the visibility is not a factor. Still, I get no fish. I even spent 150 bucks on wifi repeaters and cable connections to reduce lag on my connection. And I know they changed a lot of spots and fish behaviour for some of the competitions (e.g. sturgeon & cats) over the last months and years. Still, I get the impression that something is wrong on a technical level for some of the comps. And I am really wondering what it could be, and how one might be able to fix it. The guys I play with have had similar issues, and usually say "it just is like that sometimes. You can throw whatever you want in the lake, and won't be able to catch anything." Why though? Do you really get your chances rolled once you enter the competition, and if you're out of luck, you're out of luck? P.S.: I'm playing on PS4, though. So too many running processes shouldn't really be an issue. I connected it via cable, so wifi shouldn't be an issue either - even though it's just a 50 MBit/s connection. The ping in other games is fine. I can play rocket league for 8 hours straight, with a decent 24ms ping and no issues. Destiny 2 works fine. I even took apart my console, cleaned it, and replaced the thermal paste to rule out overheating. Even freed up disk space and rebuild the database to rule that factor out. Really kinda lost here
  13. 45 mins 1 fish total. WTF is wrong with this game?
  14. 2 months and this is still an issue.. So far I've lost a BC jerkbait and a x-series crankbait. Fix your goddamn game guys! Thank you for the work-around! Good stuff! (Once again it's the community that helps each other and the devs that don't seem to care.. )
