Developer’s Diaries: Amazonian Maze in Brazil


Recommended Posts

  • Developers

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.

Mr. Bismark. We Fp streamers work hard and for free to bring good content to all players and people interested in Fp. Without any distinction of exercise, ranking or social level. You could have a little more affection with us, because even though many of the Streamers are not in a competitive rank, we promote total equality between the players.

First it is Bismarc and not Bismark.

Second Game since October 30, 2017, I assure you that it is long before you want to "think" about playing FP.
What matters is the disclosure to the players, if the majority that watches live, are players who are looking for new ways to compete and new spots to improve themselves.
Since you claim to be a streamer, take a quiz, stream a competition and stream yourself, and see which one will give you the most views.

My question is clear and objective, without indirect, because I don't like to waste time. 
I see several players who streamed in the past and still win BETAKEY, and this is a disadvantage whether
you like it or not for those who compete. The person gains 2 weeks in front of me being on the map discovering spots. 
While those who do not have BETAKEY, will have to chase the damage. For you that do not compete competition is great and is indifferent. 
For me and so many others that we are looking for TOP1 it makes a lot of difference. 
I just think that the FP should have a meritocracy and see the effort of the top 10 players, and give BETAKEY to it. 
Because like it or not, like it or not, it's more than 5 thousand hours of my life dedicated to the game.

Ah yes, Sr Bismarc. so you show a little more concern if the beta key will be offered to a competitive player in rank. In this case, then, I suggest that you make a direct report to the support if you have noticed if any player had any competitive advantage when participating in the beta tests. I believe that you support the streamers and the dissemination that we make of this wonderful game, regardless of what we disclose in our Live Stream.

Several players that I never saw doing STREAM or live on YOUTUBE. I am onlying been incisive, if they got BETAKEY, why the others can't get too?!

I saw this in the live of Lepontello, to many players that NEVER did live got BETA in BOLIVIA. The problem is this, to benefit some and not others. SO I asked Dennis diretcly in his own post. I expect an answer from him.

I assure you that only a few who are in the rank have already or made stream. Minute in the video is 1:45.

I still don't really understand. which of the players who participated in the beta test bolivia are among the top 10 competitive rank, and that you feel hampered by the early participation in the discovery of the spots?I still don't really understand. which of the players who participated in the beta test bolivia are among the top 10 competitive rank, and that you feel hampered by the early participation in the discovery of the spots?

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.

Are you sure? ;)

Zitat

13.02.2021   163 Days at the game Level 65 Ranking 6

This is my progress so far.

I only discovered FP for myself in the middle of last year when I bought an XBox One.

Imho anyone can do this who is a little targeted and spends more than just one day fishing on the water with angling.

And now BTT please. ;)

According to your speech, you shouldn't be competing, 
so for you it is totally indifferent to know the spots on the new map sooner or later or from that 10 years, so for many. 
But for those who compete in competitions 1 day already makes a lot of difference. 
Maybe if you started playing competitions you would understand what I'm talking about. ;)

Hi

I understand what you mean. ;)

But many of the Youtubers with access to the test servers show videos of the beta phase and thus also the positions of the fish.

That has been the case in the past and there is a high probability that it will be this time as well. ;)

That puts the "big" advantage of the 2 weeks into perspective. ;)

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!

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"

So it could be so far next week if nothing comes of the way. ;)

But it's good to know that I'm not the only one impatient. ;)

Dennis changes his post dates so you can't go by that. If you look at today's announcement about the St. Patrick's Day event it says he posted it on March 2nd.
