Feedback: Fish Farm

edited 28.03.2015 in Archive (Read only)
Mentioned a few months ago about having a fishery on the fourth farm.
Thinking about it even more you could have the farm border a lake and once you buy the land plots adjacent to the lake you can build fishing posts which will earn money from people fishing your lake.

The rest of the farm could be breeding facilities for the types of fish which you use to stock the lake, each time you stock the lake with a particular type of fish then when you set the fishing post off that fish has a greater chance of being caught so there would be an element of chance with what you earned from the lake each time.

You could use corn from the main farm as one type of bait and the dung can be used in another production building to provide maggots, different types with different additions, lavendar or jasmine from the flower farm could attract a different type of fly and therefore maggot.

Im sure people can come up with a couple more types of buildings that would fit in with the theme.

Going the other way, bred fish could be used in the restaurant so all farms would have a connection to each other.

    Did you ever heard of a farm that has fish on it? That idea is not good at all.
    And the idea of the bugs/insects is good if you got a plague or a decease on the fields. But there aren't any so there must be a big change and i think GGS is not willing to change that.

    Ummm they do have fish farms all over the world you know! I have a real farm as well and it has 4 large ponds stocked with fish.

    i actually have heard of farms with fish on them.they are called fish hatcheries :) i personally like the idea of worms randomly appearing when harvesting on your farm and being used as bait to catch different species of fish such as bluegill,trout,bass and countless others.

    i like the idea of as fish pond as well and I grew up in a farming community many bugs and insects are beneficial to farmers whether they have problems with disease or not bees and butterflies pollenate plants worms loosen the soil making it easier for roots to grow stronger roots means healthier plants and better yields in the fields ladybugs eat harmful aphids and other harmful pests as do mantises I suppose pinjo1986 thought the mine was a good idea not that ive ever actually seen a mine on a farm and I doubt very many people have however nearly all farms has a pond on them that has fish and most farmers know about and use beneficial insects and have for generations

    um i only eat farmed fish i wont eat anything from the wild,to many mouths eating that already for me to steal off em . so yea farmed fish and farmed shrimp is how i get my sea food ... no gold per cast . u harvest it just like u do pigs . u get fish and if u want more u get compost leaves from the banks. u can use any fish u want since your farming them it probably be 1 type of fish to make harvest. carp,trout,catfish are just a few of whats really farmed ...

    insects-the worms u get from your compost u use to feed fish fry (fry=baby fish) once fed the zzz's go away and however amount of time ggs chooses like idk 20 worms = 50 fish ? u get 4 worms per compost harvest ? bla bla bla

    ty and yea i never seen a mine on a farm lol they exist but not like ponds and insects lulz

    harvesting corn u find a lacewing every once in a while - use it on a field like humus or fertilizer increases harvest by 5% then every once in a while when harvest cabbage u find a lady bug use em just like humus or fertilizer increases by 10% every once in a while harvesting wheat u get a mantis use for 15%. it makes alot more sense then tickets and tractors found and its real farming

    anybody saying whats fish and insects got to do with farming needs to google it ;-)

    or 5 lacewings befor u can use or 10 20 whatever ggs chooses

    dragonfies found every once in a while harvesting ponds use on orchids for 10% increase
    makes more sense than finding a cash register

    maggots yup from ur fertilizer harvest u can use that on ur ponds too use to increase pond harvest buy 10% 20 worms to get it stated 100 maggots to increase productiveness

    haven't got to the restaurants yet. so i do know how that works .

    need a ggs rep or mod in hear how to support this idea its probably the best idea related to farming said

    What does the gold mine have to do with farming? Yet we have one.

    And there is such a thing as a fish farm. Ever buy farm raised catfish or salmon in the supermarket?
    I think as an extra farm a fish farm could work. Start out selling bait. Earth worms and minnows. Of course you would have to make feed, probably mostly from your grain.
    Then you could upgrade and start raising salmon, or perch. Then perhaps for the most upper levels even have a pearl farm.
    All could be done in huge tanks. Graphically speaking it wouldn't be difficult thing to design.

    HostileRick, Support is not the correct way to go. The Community Managers and devs look here in this forum, Suggestions, Praise and Criticism for your ideas

    Support is a different department with different staff and for solving any issues you have with playing the game

    Heh :), I think the mine was GGS' own idea!

    You're doing fine in getting your idea through to the right people. I suspect the next farm is very far advanced though and there may not even be a fifth (4th secondary) ever

    Even if an idea is accepted it will take many, many months to make it into the game

    When we were 'talking' earlier I said that my own preference would be for trees for lumber and sheep and silk worms for textiles for a furniture based farm.

    You might be interested in a couple of previous discussions with regard to the next farm, which also mention sheep and silk worms

    I've just gone through the whole thread and I'm amazed that no one suggested that we make use of the river outside our farms........ I thought maybe gather enough insects and buy the equipment for your guys and they'll return in a couple of hours with fish or with money equal to the monetary value of the fish :D

    I really like the fish farm idea. Especially selling fish in the restaurant. Good one!

    Start with a small bait store,
    add on large vats to raise farm catfish,
    Larger vats for salmon.... and like that.

    Now I have another idea.

    I don't really care for bugs but!!!!


    This might be good.

    Decor.
    Right now decor ONLY improves workers happiness.
    Well what about decor that specifically effects other things? Say fields?
    It could be something like a beehive on a tree, or a bee keeper with stacks of boxes. Say a 5x5 square thing.
    Or even smaller, 3x3. and placing that touching an orchard, or touching an orchard that also touches orchards. It would effect them all, and increases yield?

    Or placing a certain flower patch that attracts say ladybugs. (The graphic could simply be a white flower thing similar to the plain flower decor, change the color, and add a few red bugs above it.)
    And place that touching a field, and it increases yield.

    yes another link to the restaurant farm. Also just thought that the garden in the restaurant can produce potatoes to go with the fish so gives another link between the farms.

    Could also produce Barley on the first farm which then gets made into vinegar using the distillery on the third farm to then be used in the fish and chips recipe on the second farm.

    Use of gold, like most things in this game, should be a perk. Not necessary to play, but a fun perk.

    So.... lets say you have normal fish food.
    but you could spend gold and get "specially treated" fish food.

    now.... ha ha! This could be a gamble. You might end up with a huge salmon worth five times the normal ones,
    OR.... you could get a genetic mutation. Say a three eyed blinky. Worth nothing.

    Lets just not get all Zynga with it. The amount of ridiculous concepts added to a "farming" game ran off players by the millions there. Plus, the more tedious functions added to the game, the more opportunity to circumvent the difficulty of the game. I REALLY like GGS because it still requires planning and intelligence. (ie: No snowballing Belted Cows and Blue Whales to make 10's of millions of $$$ an hour off of....)

    suggest a fish pond like your piggery but instead it gives u fish?
    what you think?

    insects are a big part of farming too, maybe have beneficial insects and creatures like worms , mantises , ladybugs , and dragonflies .

    i think of some more suggestions in a little bit.

    and am i using the right forum for this?

    I think that's upper smart but it could give you any type of fish you want and you can name the types of fish u get:)
