    We are having an issue in our coop... Some people have the option of using Oleg to fish for 45 minutes and get 10 goldfish, but some of us can only send Oleg for 5 goldfish for 45 minutes.  Can someone please explain what is going on there?  Is it a glitch?  Someone said they thought it depended on fishing level, but I don't think that is the case.
    @farmer46 (US1)

    It's a bug.  People that have the 2X XP Booster running are seeing all their harvest numbers doubled - but when you actually collect the harvest, you only get the regular amount (not the doubled amount).  So it may say they'll get 10, but they'll actually only get 5.  It's just a display error. It's been reported.

    I am not fishing for goldfish, am catching fleas, no choice there but I feel that if I did this event I am saying to GGS its OK to mess me about, swap + change everything to their pleasure, I am just a little sheep who will follow everything  GGS does  even if they are leading me over a cliff

    My advent calendar is now showing that I did not find my three chipmunks and I did. It was checkmarked and a done deal. I came on today and always go back through to see all my checks, t is just what I do, and it showed I had missed that. I even have messages where I talked with others in my co-op about locations as I had found mine before anyone else was even up . Sent a support ticket, we will see what happens. Very upsetting when you take the time to work something and that happens, but hey isn't the different color bubbles over the people all pretty and such. Seems like the other bubbles were fine, how about working on something that is broke and not change something that was working. 



  • The cost for sending oleg to fish for goldfish is insane. It would maybe be OK, if the event was only once a year. But i can not spend hundreds of millions of dollar on this event every month. My farm are not making that amount of dollars, not with the temp farms, and need for upgrading buildings etc.

    The cost needs to be 1/10 or more realistic, 1/50. And the rewards needs to be much better.

    You don't have to send Oleg, you can collect Fleas, turn them into bait, and fish for goldfish manually, all for free.. (Well, except for the cost of making the bait in the windmill and buying the fishing equipment, but that's all very minimal cost).

    @Sonnarps (SKN1)  You don't have to spend a fortune sending Oleg to fish for goldfish. Just make goldfish bait and catch them yourself in the mini fishing game.  :)

    Edit: Southern beat me to it!  :D

    Take picture of goldfish rescued as we didn't get the goldfish the last time this event ended & still haven't got a response to whether or not we'll get the goldfish we rescued from last time the event ran.

    Also haven't got happy hour either but thought it wasn't suppose to start until the 18th so why do others already have it?

    Ok so I understand there is a bug with the goldfish event...only getting half of the goldfish when you send oleg. But why is it when I use the one with gold that is for 15 min. It says you get 20 goldfish and I only got 5. this is way less than half!!! I want my gold back or give me the right amount of goldfish! this is a joke!! Can't GGS give us an event without bugs!!! Come on please!!

    I am aware of this. There are a lot of things in this game that I like. There are quite a few things in this game I do not like. There are a few things in this game that I hate. The thing I hate the most is manual fishing. My computer is to slow, it is to random, which, if any, fish will be on the hook, it is slow and boring. 

    I do not like to fish in real life, and I most certainly do not like to fish in this game.

  • I made some Goldfish food/flakes and after collecting them, they are not there.  It seems that I did not get them but it did take the materials to make them from my supplies.

    @Grannie Jackie (US1)

    Do you have any goldfish in the bowl yet?  The flakes won't show up until there's at least 1 goldfish in the bowl.

    You use the fleas to make bait, then use the bait to catch the goldfish with Oleg.  Flakes only feed them AFTER you've caught them.

  • you use your bugs that drop from your farm, to make bait in the windmill. then you use the mini fishing game, to use your bait and catch goldfish.

    OK, today is 12/14, 8:22am CDT.  The Goldfish Rescue has started.  I am unable to generate goldfish in the pond.  I can create Goldfish bait but that is it.  I can not fish for them.  This event is working for some apparently, as my ranking is dropping.....Anyone else having this problem?

    If you're talking about the pond in the Coop Village, you don't do anything with that for this event other than feed it pellets. 

    To catch goldfish and put them in the goldfish bowl, you take the goldfish bait you make in the windmill and use it as bait while fishing MANUALLY with Oleg from the dock in the fishing mini-game on one of the 3 farms (Main, Gourmet, Flower).  When you catch the goldfish, they'll automatically be deposited into the goldfish bowl, which you can access from the van in the parking lot.
    Southern, in the first go around for the Rescue, I was able to generate Flakes (bait), and use them to fish the 3 pond farms.  THIS iteration of the GoldFish rescue, lets me generate flakes, but, i can NOT catch any fish on the 3 ponds.  THAT option IS NOT available in the fishing menu.  Does not work on any of the 3 ponds at this time.

    Edit:  I am also not seeing after I make the bait where they are showing up ANYWHERE in inventory.

    I don't know how you did it last time Barry, but Fleas are used to make bait, not flakes.



    Once you make the bait, it shows up in Oleg's "Fishing Supplies" screen on the "Bait" tab.

    (I don't have bait any at the moment, so can't take a screenshot of it).

    You then equip that bait in Oleg's tackle box, and go fishing in the mini-game. Use the bait while fishing to spawn a goldfish, then catch it just as you would any other fish. Caught goldfish are automatically placed into the goldfish bowl.

    Goldfish Flakes are used to feed the goldfish you've already caught (using bait).

    Sorry Southern but I too made fish bait from fleas added to my tackle and went fishing  the bait icon showed but no gold fish were added to the mini game when using the bait  also made flakes but not sure where they go to check

    ok reloaded the game yet again - figured i had nothing to lose - and the baited fish are now showing in the mini-game

    Sorry about miss speaking.  Yes, I tried to equip the tackle box with the 16 bait i made in the windmill.  They were not there.  Cleared cache 3 times.  no luck.  Rebooted computer and cleared cache again, 7 were there.  Not the 16  had created.  Go figure  Maybe the other 9 got loose and are swimming in the bay somewhere!  LOL.  I appreciate your help (love the screen shot BTW).

    When you're in the mini-game, make sure you press the "+" sign with the UP Arrow next to the bait to spawn a fish.

    You have to click that to spawn the fish depicted by the bait.

    Well, still haven't gotten goldfish from last 2 times so lets do it again. It seems like they're making up for all the rewards they gave out during Christmas glitches & the new morm is now play, win rewards but you only get them if you take screenshots & submit tickets - then hopefully you'll get them. Why don't you give past earned rewards b4 you put event out again. I really don't understand how some get them & others don't especially if their on the same server. If it's working on 1 server than you would think you should be able to duplicate it on the others.

  • I have made tons of goldfish bait, but it's not showing up! I can't fish for goldfish because it shows I have no bait. I have looked for it and its just not showing. When I go to make more goldfish bait it says I need to sale some because I'm full, yet it's not showing. Anybody have this problem?

    Goldfish Bait only shows up in the Tackle Box.  Is that where you're looking?
