  • This new fishing area and the hard worker event associated with it is an absolute joke. Every time something new comes out is has heaps of bugs/glitches. If we bought something from a shop and it did not work properly we would return it. Wonder what would happen if everybody stopped playing? I have not been able to do the hard worker event as my fish area has no spot available to get oysters and i refuse to pay gold to skip the oysters. Everybody who does not have an area for the fish required in the Hard Worker Event is disadvantaged. (I have contacted support in relation to this issues on my farm and awaiting a reply).

    I am in 41st place with a very miserly 27k points, and it is asking for Clams...   But there are no Clam Areas left.. 

    So that's it for me ... Game Ends.

    this is one of the biggest problem in new hwe , you need to wait some time till dockyard will rest

    PBH...  Looks like you're not going to get the GML then...!!


  • I have another problem with this feature...  Fishing sites are changing while my boats are fishing in them! I  was send nearly all my fleet for swordfish, and  this "pools" was changed before my boats returned... Third time in a row  >_<

    I am and just watching a fish swim around with my hook in its mouth :-(

    I assume the side tasks are the minnow hooks which is ok, but not if you cannot catch a fish  
    @Panther724 (GB1) Click on the water part of the screen & not anywhere else & that should make your reel work correctly.

    The next fish I need for Hard Worker event is cod but none of my 6 fishing holes have it.  Does this mean that unless I use gold to skip cod I am finished with event?

    @Herbina (US1) If you do not wish to skip, you can catch all the fish at a location so that it vanishes & spawns a new one, hopefully one with cod in it or you can wait for all the locations to reset after 24 hours.


    What is going on with this Dockyard, I click on it and nothing happens, did it even start yet? or let Me guess it is only for Co-op people, it should be for Everyone in My opinion, so when can the rest of us who are Not in a Co-op use it?
    dockyard is a broken feature, clearly goodgamestudios did no beta testing whatsoever

    You need to finish the entire fishing quest line in order to unlock the deep sea area.

    That is why some can use the dockyard while some can't

    What is the entire fishing quest line?

    On which farm does the side bar tell you what tasks need to be done?  Oleg is nowhere to be found on any of mine. 


    Absolutely useless. there's no instructions on how to get the new HWE started, so most of us can't take part in this event. All we get when we click on the dockyard is the information icon, which doesn't give us any information.

    Please get this sorted soon

    @Blue Denim (US1)  @archerbob (AU1)  @Bruce04 (US1)  @tkayd (US1) @SteveUser (GB1)
    You all need to check all of your farms for tasks that are highlighted at the top of the task lists as, recommended tasks to complete. Even though they are tasks for Oleg, they do not all appear related to fishing or show Oleg on them. Check for these ones:


    Big Beck (US1) said:
    I have equipped my boats to catch oysters for the hwe but none of the fishing holes have oysters in them so my boats are coming back with no oysters.
    @Big Beck (US1) If you hover over the locations that are active for you, they show you what type of fish are in that location. Oysters are found with clams & shrimp on locations that look like a small rock. 

    LSB_TTS (INT1) said:
    Hey wascally, I fished all the fish at two locations but they are not disappearing or new fish appearing there. It is just an empty spot with no fish

    Also, it has been 24 hours, but no change in fish yet (3 of my spots have lobsters still)
    @LSB_TTS (INT1) Your locations have been checked by a tech & he found no empty ones, so it looks like they have fixed themselves. :)

    I still have three rocky areas with no fish of any type (shrimp, clam, or oyster).  The other pools did change, but these did not.  This has been going on for more than half a day now.

    Also, where is the communication from GGS to let us know that they "get" it.

    AND, where is the fix for the GMLs.  We were told that they would be in the HW and they are not there.  2 of 3 are missing?  This is unacceptable.

    Even, as mad as I was yesterday, I never would have thought that we would get this far into Thursday with no fixes and such little communication.
    @gavinfarms (US1) The tech is checking to see if there are any bugs in the reset system, so we do not have a final answer for that yet. However he could not find anything wrong in your account, so I assume that, like LSB, yours has also corrected itself.
    Despite being a public holiday in Germany yesterday, I think that there was a considerable amount of communication & answered questions, I am sorry that you feel it was inadequate. :(

    When the boats are sitting in the dock after completing fishing,  it would be nice if they displayed what fish they have on board before clicking on them. 

    This would make harvesting fish for the Hard Worker Event much easier when you have several boats collecting different types of fish.

    I would like to see mouse over tool tips please.

    This morning I had boats out to catch fish for the HWE i needed oysters first then herring were next so that is what I sent my boats after. I ended up leaving the house all day and when I got back on game all boats were at the docks and I didn't know what boats had what. Wouldn't you know I emptied the herring first :(
    @woodenskull (US1)  @CrazyBigfarm55 (US1)  We have raised this issue with the devs & though it is not possible to show the exact fish & quantities on the bubble, for boats in dock, they are looking at adding fish icons to show the type of location that the boat came back from.

    Today I found out that several of my coop members have had an email with a link to some presents to get you started with the docyard and deep sea fishing. I and a few others in the coop did not get that email.
    I checked and double checked but nothing found. (is also not in the spam folder).
    So some of us did get that mail and some of us did not get that mail on may 24, 2017.
    I already sent a ticket to support because this is strange and I also would like to get that mail.
    Maybe there are more people who did not get that mail!

  • I can't find how to get my ship to go fishing. Also, my dockyard building has only an information button on it. What step am I missing?

    Can anyone tell me if you are able to Manage your boats (ie Upgrade, Equip, Deploy) while your Dock is upgrading?  

    I'd like to start the Dock upgrade, but not if that will shut me out from working with my boats during the build time.
  • can anyone tell me the fishing tasks are, or how i can do them. 
  • andy123321 (INT1)andy123321 (INT1) INT1 Posts: 117

    You need to find the tasks on the Flower farm with Oleg.   They are on the side-bar on the left of the screen.    Some fishing tasks may be on the other farms as well.

    The last one is to buy and use Minnow Hooks.

    Yes, you can. You just have to click on each individual boat while it's docked to upgrade or equip it.

  • It's not a huge deal, but the timer along the right side of the screen is off.  The fishing says I have 1 second left - and it did for quite a while - but when I went down to fishing, there was nothing coming up in less than 45 minutes.
  • How does one get the boat to go fishing?  Have crew and equipment on it and it remains in sleep mode

    I can't harvest my boats without selling my feed.  Has anyone experienced this and know how to get around it?
  • Data King (US1)Data King (US1) US1 Posts: 7,904
    My game is stuck on what I think is the last task (buy 1 bass bait / use 1 bass bait). I already had bass bait in stock so that came up checked but I went ahead and bought one anyway. Then I fished for bass with it, nothing. I sent Oleg to fish with it, nothing. I re-loaded the game and tried them both again. nothing. I cleared the cache and tried again, nothing.  

    I filed a ticket with support, haven't heard a word. This event which is supposed to get us started on this fleet thing (and also has rewards I could really use) will be over before they even think about fixing it.

    I think they should compensate all of us who missed this and I have some suggestions:
    1) run the event again for us
    2) just give us the rewards including the mining license
    3) give us the boats and a healthy stack of goldflowers.

    I know you probably think I'm insane but the frustration level is beyond high right now. Did I tell you I'm the one in the coop teaching everyone how to use the fishing. Ironic ain't it?!
    Be sure you equip your tool box with the bait then go fishing being sure to deploy the bait.

    2 choices here. 1 you will need a Lab to change the feed into premium feed or sell for a loss

    If this is true than it is unfair for the people who did not get it. Some people get things for free and the other people have to buy those things?

    Omg Wons..You are damn right lol..
    I just name my boat, currently 6 of them with fancy name and now i don't remember what types of fish they brought when docking at port hahaha... I need to write a notes everytime i sent them out now huhu..
    This is not such a smart idea, as for a number of reasons you do not want to be limited in your fishing by the names of your boats. Unless you want to waste gold renaming them every time you need to send for different fish or leaving them idle in your dock untill that type of fish is needed or available.

    I'd rather expect "harvest" display  - like we have with every other harvest in the game including Oleg. As it is it seems like another GG fail in design. Hope they'll correct that.

    If you want to rename a boat, Demolish it and rebuild it using dollars.

       Not trying to be a pain here......  Why do I need to sell or make premium feed to harvest the boats is the real question

    When you are on the fishing screen you have to click on the bait and the arrow that appears in order to use it.  Just having it in your box isn't enough.  Know how you feel because it happened to me.

    Can any one tell me what equipment I need to catch sword fish? I have sent 8 boat over past past 24 hours and ave not caught a single one.  Caught lots of other kinds of fish wit out problem but can not seem to figure out the combo for sword fish.

    My Dockyard is at level 2 and i have tried both runaboat level 4 and motorboat level 6.

    What am I not doing right that I can not catch even 1 swordfish? 
    you need to equip your boat with items for the fishing hole that has swordfish in it and for swordfish you will need the bent trolling rod. everything in the supply section will tell you what it is for by clicking on it or the info icon. :)
    first thank you for the answer.

    I have used the bent rod and still nothing. I am thinking (unless it is a bug) that there is some kind of combo of supplies I am not getting right. Can you tell me specifically what you are equipping your boat with and I will try it. Thank you.

    As I said I have caught  other stuff no problem just cannot seem to get even 1 Swordfish. It is very frustrating.
