Can someone explain what is happening here?
See the GGS Wiki HERE
You can buy protection
Personally I do not think it is worth buying it
In high risk areas and I particularly want something I will use the ones I have won
Why is there 266 fish shown on the turbo harvester, when there is just 240 fish in my boat?
Fishing Strategy and Dockyard Calculator HERE
I happen to agree with DataKing that the available slots on a boat are better served with things other than protection
I do admit these are numbers I have not looked at in a very long time, nor do I have the time presently to really look at them. I am always willing to change my mind if I see the #s or proof to sway it.
My current thoughts on it are this;
While looking at 1 example of 1 boat, it may seem like the cost of the equipment is better than the value of the fish lost if it was not used, but what are the other costs?
If the cost is time during the day and a whole other pool could have been emptied in the time it took for the boats to return if Brigittes were used instead of protection, then the value of those fish need to be considered as well, and for the most part the value of 1 more pool of fish far outshines the loss of a few fish. So, I will use Brigittes instead of protection for a better daily profit in DSF
If your thought process brings you in another direction, please follow your own convictions; I am just sharing mine as 1 view.
**back to the original comment though ......
one of my posts that was moved out of this thread on the other topic, also included this comment;
"As for the initial post, I have seen that too, and have always thought it was for the same reason as Rosy posted. The # that is showing in the turbo harvester is the # of fish that boat caught from the pool, but the actual # you will get (that shows in the bubble over the boat), is after some fish were "lost" in the voyage back to the pier."
If this is really true, I do think the turbo harvester should show the same # of fish that is ready to harvest, not how many the boat was sent for. I agree this is displayed wrong and hope it's been reported to be corrected. Since this post, I have looked at turbo harvester a few times and it usually shows the same amount the boat does, but sometimes it is different. I haven't really kept track nor noticed a pattern, but don't understand a reason for it ever to be different.
Thank you farmerjohn_22 (US1) for the beautiful picture!
"I have a difference between how much fish is in a boat and what the menu says.
Can someone explain what is happening here?"
Further off topic and I will close the thread
Discuss the worth, or otherwise, of protection elsewhere NOT in a bug report
Should the turbo harvester not show the amount of fish that is ready to 'harvest'?
In my case 240 and not 266.
