    Hmmm we should make an even where you have a swimming pool and you fill it up with cash and then go for a swim :)
    Smells like a new decoration idea :neutral:

    One suggestion - when upgrading boats and depending on what boat, they should be more resistant on storms, sharks...
    Especially trawler and skipjack.

    There is a hotfix coming.  Does anyone know what it is about?

    Why level 6 Skipjack in storage and after putting down in the water level 4
  • is fishing level important? seems like the boats and upgrades all require player level and not fishing level. The only things I can think of are mermaid bay and then the HWE for fishing levels, unless I am missing something.

  • I'd just like to know how i can catch carp

  • Too bad, one of our coopmembers can't get it to work. He can't buy any boat on the dock, same for making bait... not possible. There are no options like upgrade, buy a boat etc, only the Informationsign.

    It looks like he didn't complete all of the fishing tasks. A few tasks can be found on the main farm: https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/154396/tasks-for-olegs-fishing-quest 

  • Does chum even work?  My  chum doesn't  make my fish  load large (yes, I had capacity).  Tomorrow I'll post a screens.

    Chum works, but only when you use the correct chum and when you have large capacities (large boats and freezers).  It is particularly helpful if you want to send a large boat out for a long time.

    It now appears that chum does not work.  I have used it quite successfully until today, but after today's update, it does not work.  Did you guys do something to that part of the program?  Please let us know.  I don't want to keep calculating, if there is no reason to.

    I was just thinking that too......I thought I was imagining it when I saw the numbers of fish that I collected from one of my boats. It fell well short of where it should have been and there were no fish lost during the trip. The pool regeneration is also confusing me because I thought ALL pools regenerate after 24 hours but I seem to be stuck with the same ones as yesterday....half fished out.

    Will the bluefish ever return so that they can be fished from the dock?  All some others and I have are still only bonito.  

    @Southern (US1)  Thanks for your tip.  We did clear out our caches, and still no bluefish -- just bonito. *sigh*
    @artful (US1)  Do bluefish show up if you use bluefish bait, or don't bluefish show up either way?

    The dockyard currently makes only 1 chum at a time.  Reducing the time it takes to make 1 does not make it more efficient unless the player visits more frequently.  I suggest that upgrades also increase the number of batches it can make at a time.  This allows the dockyard to be running for a longer time such as overnight without having to stop at 1 batch.  

  • As for not working chum. I don't know what it was before hotfix, but  I noticed  something "weird":

    English:  Bonus to fishing speed.
    Someone know something about this how chum works at the moment?

    Exactly.  I am hoping for larger batches (5-8 at a time).  With larger boats, the need for lobster, tuna, and herring chums, in particular, becomes big.

    By the way, the Architect has been gone for a really long time.  He did not come at all between the last two CC's.  Thursday will be three weeks.  There is more and more in the game that requires him.  We need him more often, not less.
    my thoughts exactly gavin!! it's getting to be a bad habit that ggs waits too long to send steve and then we all gotta scramble and of course buy gold to complete our upgrades b4 the coopcha starts!!! beginning to really get annoying!!

    He was here May 25.  But, you're right, he needs to come more often.

    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.

    The higher you get the reward indicator, the more items appear in the Personal Rewards window:


    (Denoted by the arrow).

    The above image is when the reward indicator is around the 25% mark.

    When the reward indicator is all the way to the top (100%), the window should look like this:



    This means that all 9 slots of the personal reward box will have something in them the next time the boat docks.


    Yes, I am doing that.  What the do the green "+1" indicators mean?


    Also,  you can donate a certain amount and then the buttons get greyed out.  For example, I might donate 200 apple pies and then they are greyed out.  However, if I donate 5000 apple pies that first time, it will take them.  But it does not seem that I get any better reward for these higher amounts.

  • Is there a way of determining how long it takes a boat to get to a fishing location? I see time saved with the various people but not times to each spot. I presume each location and each type boat will be different but there is nothing about that in the game.

    Those are enormous quantities Gavin ! Once the red Friendship meter on the right is at the top, donating more achieves nothing. Donate 10 at a time till it reaches the top (100 - 150 in total)

    And I too would like to know What the do the green "+1" indicators mean?
