I searched around on the forums for any info regarding this, but couldn't find anything, so if I missed it somewhere, forgive me. I know we can rent kayaks at certain locations. What if we buy a kayak...can we use that kayak at any location? Or are we still restricted to those locations where they can be rented? My wife & I would LOVE to be able to use a kayak in the Everglades!!
Hey guys. Ive been fishing on emerald lake trying to get a unique pike. After the update when you cast into the weeds along the bank it shoots your lure all over the place and sometimes tips you over. This happened on monday dec 19. Anyone else have this craziness? It's funny but super annoying not getting a good placement with your lure.
So after using them all, I see no difference really between the rental/blue/red kayaks - the power bar goes down when you paddle, they can be capsized by big fish and the speeds are so marginally different as to be irrelevant. Yes, you can still keep paddling after ' sprint ' paddling, but.. The orange one however, I haven't capsized it yet and the power bar doesn't deplete while paddling normally. Meaning you can save your power for the final sprint to beat your friend to ' the spot '. It is slightly slower upon first inspection, or so it would seem, but in reality it's the fastest to get you where you want to go. Pretty sure I can capsize it if I try hard enough ;-)
My thought in the new patch, and what I would like see implemented in the future. Kayaks: Overall, I love them, however I would love to see you implement dual anchorpoints, or the option to pick if you want the anchor in the front or the back. Something that helps us to stay in one spot without having to readjust the kayak and try to find the same spots over and over when a fish drags your kayak to the side, or when the current in the water is strong. Also, it would be nice it the kayak had some kind of automatic anchoring system for whenever you go out of the kayak and leave it on a bank. It is possible to set the anchor before you leave it, but I had a blooper in New York one of the first days of testing it when I went the the "beach" out on the left and got out of my kayak, and when I had been fishing for a while and went back towards where I left it I noticed that it had drifted away long enough for me not being able to get in back without switching to another map peg. Pricing of the Kayaks: I think the prices atm are way to high for the players that rent them,. And not only that, the fact that it only lets you rent it for one fishing day, instead of 24hours IRL time like it is for the Licenses. My suggestion would be to make it 24h IRL time, or even giving us a new 3rd option for an Advanced Licence including the Rent of kayaks. Edit: In my opinion when using the Kayaks the stamina should ONLY go down if/when you're pressing shift, and it should start to recharge as soon as you let go. It would make way more sense that way. IRL I could paddle at a slow pace for hours without any stops, and so in my mind the stamina should realistically only go down when you're "really going for it" (top speed). Float Alarm: I just wanna add that I love that you implemented this feature, BUT(!), there was no mention of this is the patch notes or the news. I would like it if you include alot more in your patch notes, not only the "major changes", but even minor, once like this new Float Alarm (that now is possible to activate in Audio setting for everyone that didnt know about it yet). ___ Stuff I would love to see implemented in the future ___ Sunglasses: Me and many others have brought this up before, and I got some more suggestions on how it should me implemented. Give us a pair of sunglasses in a DLC or in the ingame shop that we can adjust ourselves in our options. Maybe with a few different filter options, like a blueish color, a brownish color, a yellowish color and so on. HUD color settings: Please make it optional what color we cant to use for the HUD, and even make us slidebar 0-100% transparency for the HUD. In my experience some weathers make it near impossible to see your HUD (even the Bobber/Lures icon that are 2 colored are impossible to see at times) , if you implement a way for us to adjust it ourselves with a color chart and a transparency bar I think that would make our fishing experience alot easier. Chatwindow & Event scoreboard: Same thing here really, I would love it if I could turn the border around the chatwindow down to 0% transparency, because at times you wanna "lock" you rod in a certain position to hold a bobber fixed in a spot slightly downsteam (behind the chatwindow in this example) and at the same time being able to follow the chat without minimizing it. Customized gear: I would love to see some kind of "workshop" or whatever where we could customize our gear. I'm thinking there could be ways for us to make small changes to our rods, reels. Switching colors, adding reflextape or glow in the dark tips for all our gear. And once you introduce a proper Club System in the game, even Club logos for your vest or pants. "Friends only rooms" (The way they work): Ever since PH_Trulight started his forum fishing comp I've noticed how this is a really annoying problem. When you start a friends only room everything works fine up until the creator of that room leave. When that happens there's no way for him/her to get back in. Something we got painfully aware of this last patch when we had alot of problems with the "Spagetti reel bug". If (WHEN) the player starting the room got that bug, we ALL had to leave the room and rejoin once the person was back in creating a new room. Hoarder gear: I want Bigger bait boxes basically, the way I got my gear atm I think I can bring 151 baits/lures/hooks/bobbers etc And that's with the highest lvl vest, the "Sport pack" cap. I think if you have all the best things you can get it go to 153 if I'm not mistaken. I would love to see a baitbox that made it possible to bring 200-250 lures, and that way I would use the different tournament jackets etc more frequent, since I dont have to sacrifice tackeslots my "downsizing" to a jacket/vest that dont hold as many tackles. I wouldnt mind an even bigger rodcase either if I'm honest, atleast one that holds 8 rods. That way I could bring Float rods and spinning/castingrods in 4 different weightclasses to cover all fish in all lakes. (I know some ppl are gonna explode by me asking for this, but I'm the same way IRL. I always bring a ton of gear to cover whatever I might encounter at the lake).
