    You can still do the tasks, Fruzia.

    You'll find a list of them in this thread.

    What is the purpose of Deep Sea Fishing after the Hard Worker event ends?  Is it to collect the fish and make chum and sell our chum in farm. mgmt.?   Currently I am stuck on HW event as no Oysters showing in fishing spots.  Just wondering whether I should spend time and $$ sending boats out just to collect fish for chum.

    @KarenKay (US1) i know how to work out how many fish my boat has just taken from a pool, it's very straight forward, but you do NOT know the penalty (if any) you will be deducted when you actually collect the fish, it's totally random, UNLESS you've put on protection against every possible event (storm, sharks etc) - which then it will obv be zero penalty

    when you click to take your fish, NOTE - it will show you the number of fish and to the right the penalty (if any)

    what it does not show you is the actual deduction taking place, ie the outcome

    so if you caught 100 fish and there was a 10% penalty, you will see 100 & 10%

    you will NOT see 90

    however, if you note your hardworker numbers for the next tier, there you will see the actual true deduction (90 subtracted in the example iv'e done above)

    this is all rather long winded, granted, but as you went into a full explanation i thought i should do likewise

    when you say it includes the hazards, it does not, you won't know that until your boat unloads

    therefore my point still stands, you cannot be 100% accurate as the penalty remains an unknown until clicked

    unless we have different games...

    @Corvid (GB1) Apparently they are different.  On all 39 so far sent, whatever the amount shown is, deducted by what it shows after I deploy the boat, is exactly what is added to the mill.  When I collect it shows the net amount of fish I collected due to the hazards shown on the right, which are shown as number of fish lost, and this is exactly the same amount when subtracting in the first place.  I'll keep tracking, of course, lol, but so far this has been how mine is working.

    My FHW needs herring and I have no herring to catch - . I am stuck. Have only started today as had tasks to complete only done 1 set fishing and only have 6 zones . Is there something not done or is it screwed up as normal.

    You have 3 choices:

    1) Fish one of the current fishing locations until it's empty, which will force that fishing hole to close and open up another one (which again may or may not have the type of fish you need),
    2) Pay gold to "Skip" that type of fish in the HWE and move on to the next one, which hopefully exists in one of the current fishing holes you have access to, or
    3) Wait (up to) 24 hours for the fishing holes to automatically randomize again, and hope some of the new locations have the type of fish you need.

    Alert  I am not getting the timer for how long my lobster are running it does tell me how many needed to next level  this is a big problem in how to plan and what to send.  I am liking the new feature  love the sound of the sea, visual quality is great, a lot of thought and strategy to play this one effectively  will be needed  and also a bit of luck.  I too do not understand why we cant see what the catch is when the boats dock  we can see what is coming in every other place in the game, so can we get an explanation on why this is not being provided here?

    Does amphibian boost works when catching this fish?

    I haven't fished anything yet apart from first task for oysters. Only started FHW Saturday 27th about lunchtime. Had 6 fishing areas when started, there are supposed to be 8 . How can something re spawn that you have never had in first place and not used. Why should I pay gold for something not working properly. There's supposed to be selection of all types as far as I understand it, and at what time is this 24 hrs supposed to reset as it hasn't at normal for BST time, or it is timed from when it appeared in game. Or from when fishing zone empties , this is very unclear and needs clarifying. Give up will not bother now have waited over 2 hours for reset and nothing happened.

    The official announcement was incorrect. WascallyWabbit posted a correction in the Mod News Bulletin:

    Deep Sea Fishing Locations

    The Official Announcement says that there are 8 different fishing location distances.
    In addition to this:
    There are 13 different fishing locations, of which 6 should always be active.

    https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/comment/3533101/#Comment_3533101

    As for the rest of your post, I don't think anyone would disagree with you, but it's too late for this HWE; hopefully some corrections in regards to fish spawning will be made before the next one.

    this really needs sorting cant do FHW event if you don't make the fish available to do it. Hope haven't lost yet another player from group as fed up with ggs mess ups. To start FHW event before even had the fishing in place to run it was really not a sensible idea.

    Thanks for the info. I did know this. The problem is that when they change, it's the same fish in the new location. Still haven't had one with tuna in it.

    Just to further illustrate the fish pool problem.  I now have five pools which are all the same.  This cripples the HW.

    send all  your boats to one of the holes and clean it  out... maybe you will get something different... who knows?!

    I have gone thru all different to all the same to a mix of fishing holes... fish them!!! see what happens IMHO

    A member of my co-op finished a fish location and it did not change or fill with more fish until ALL filled again, rotation completed.  So finishing a FL will not help to bring more fish.  At least it did not for her.

    Another change............In the past we could sparkle something even when it was not working.  So if I went o sparkle a composter for someone, and they were in the middle of harvesting, and I happened to be there while it was in-between batches, the sparkle would still take and they would get credit for their next batch.  I could sparkle an idle cow or pig.  This no longer works.  Was this intentional?  Let's hope not.  That would be horrible!

    Question:  There is is double Fish XP booster with the Wheel of Fortune.  Will this double the Fish XP received from building boats?

    I am trying to harvest my Mahi-Mahi in lemon sauce from the Mermaid Bay.  I have 3000 in my barn, but my barn holds much more than that?  Yet, I can harvest it............

    I reloaded the game and it worked.

    Actually, I cannot restart the water mill, because it won't sell feed.  I can't harvest honey at all......Lots of problems harvesting / selling inventory.

    Another addition:  Upon further study, it seems to only happen on items with an inventory above 3000 (which happens to be my village warehouse inventory number).  Could the village warehouse number be getting inadvertently used in the wrong place.  It becomes a real problem with feeds, because I cannot sell them without the pop-up.  And so I cannot use the Water mill at all right now.

    On the Adventurer's boat in the village.  If I repair the boat, then I can donate bakery items.  If I donate enough, the indicator slides up to the top and it says that he will brings me a really big reward next time.  However, the quality of the award never goes up.  It is the same as if I had not donated anything at all.
