    @artful (US1) Someone from another forum said that clearing his browser history did the trick, but we cannot confirm if that was just a coincidence or not & you may want your history. Devs assure us it will open eventually if you just wait. I hope there are enough rakes left for you to get one.  :/
    I have cleared out everything.  I have waited over an hour.  Do they mean leave the screen up and wait? Watch the paint dry?  I'm not the only one, unfortunately.  
    It seems, for some it takes a few minutes, for others a few hours ....  irregardless of the server.  For me, it took over 2 hours for this error box to go away & to see a contract.  Clearing the browser history, cache, flash & changing browsers did nothing to help speed it up :-(    Maybe just go do something else & come back in a few hours.  I hope it eventually shows up for you & you get a good contract when it does
    Thanks, Heidi.  I finally got it.  Contracts were okay except I can't fill them because I sold off everything!  LOL!

  • With great anticipation(not)I awaited the new fish market. My frustration at not being able to use it, after numerous cleaning, logging off, logging back in, is at the breaking point.

    Like everyone else I am disappointed in the nuclear nerf that was applied to DSF.  I'm looking at my first contracts in the new market.  Hoping some of my fellow numbers geeks would help double check my calcs and prices or see if I forgot a cost.

    I got a contract for 413 Lobsters paying  $1,135,019 plus 1 rake and 4 brushes. (yes - I double checked the commas in the cash amount)

    A Level 5 Trawler equipped for maximum number of fish caught brings in 281 total lobster:
    - 7 Large Freezer @ $31.2K each = $218.4K
    - 3 Roys @ $15K each = $45K
    -1 Victor @ $26K  = $26K

    $218.4K + $45K + $26K  = $289.4K

    $289.4K / 281 lobster = $1,030/lobster (rounded)    

    ==>> 413 * $1,030 = $425,390 cost to acquire lobsters to fill contract

    This appears to be a "good" contract yielding a profit approximately $710K plus the sparkles.

    Nothing close to the cash we were making before, but not a negative cash flow endeavor.
    So, what did I miss?
    what is your time to bring the ship in?
    For my evaluation, I am not considering the time to acquire the fish.  Of course, it would depend on which pool had lobster in it.  Knowing the time required only affected the profitability per hour, not not overall profit or loss.  I am strictly looking to evaluate the cash side of fulfilling the contract based on the cash cost of catching the fish.  This contract appears favorable to me, but knowing GGS, I wanted second eyes to verify I didn't miss something.

    As a second example, my other contract is for 431 Shrimp and 431 Oyster (832 total 'fish') and only pays $210,523 plus 1 rake and 2 brushes.  Using the level 5 Trawler to catch the 832 fish and fulfill this second contract would cost approx $856K; close to $650K cash loss.
  • Finally got it.  

    Maybe I will get lucky soon.

    Try clearing out your browser cache again.  I had to do it twice.

    Cleared everything, still getting this as well - and we KNEW that we would. I hate this new feature!





  • I've cleared cache, browser history, you name it, several times now and still the error code pops up. Maybe I will forget it for awhile, log off and take a nap.




  • Very Disappointed with this new upgrade

    unhappy .......

    i think Good Games should re-Think this move 

    Fishing use to be fun no more cost more to fish than what those contracts paying

    Hey guys!

    You will still earn money from the contracts in the market! It is not like that you will earn nothing anymore :o

    Cheers,

    Hey Pichu.

     The prizes are going to be money, token, event coins & mystery box(s) according to the announcement right? so the odds to get money as a prize is 1/4 which is low  :/

    P.S: I'm too a pokemon (Keldeo)  :D
    I just asked almost every contract will cash as a reward and additionally some other stuff :) (there are maybe 1-2 or 3 of them which dont have cash!)

    Cheers!
    Pichu 
    i have had 4 contracts without any money whatsoever. Only stuff that i do NOT use in the game, so deep sea fishing wil be a waste of time and money for me.

    Thank you for the information.

    not nearly as concerned with the dockyard as I am with the Village factories. It's taken FOREVER to upgrade them to where we could fill Yarnacle's boat 2x a day. Now the Level 6 nail yield is 11 (ELEVEN!!!!!!!!). That's less than we started with originally. This is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!

    ok just read Mod post. My brain's not able to keep up with all of this. Qty is adding correctly. My apologies.

    Looks like you need to reach a certain level to access this, possibly. I still don't know what happened to Matilda's famous mushroom stew. Never saw it - I guess it must not be so famous any more. I'm still waiting for shipping to Mermaid Bay.

    Keep refreshing and clearing cache - it will start working eventually - but as had been noted, you won't like it.
