    ... and suggestions from someone who played the game for quite a long time now
    (though nobody would read this)

    A.
    Observations

    1.
    Apparently there are differences between the venues concerning the whole behaviour of the game.

    The supersonic-carp (trophy fish jumping all around the place) seem to happen especially in Spain. Also the restless bait rolling around.
    (this since one of the updates)

    Both of the above just happen in Monte Bravo. Supersonic-carp happens in other venues if graphics are set to a higher value although to a lower degree.
    (might not be interesting for PS4 users- at least I hope so- or may be depending on the graphic card I use)

    The Dock.
    Graphics are developed.
    Looks great. The cars on the bridge.
    And of course we all love wind-energy!


    2. Already complained about it here so just to mention: since last update there is lower correlation between type and size of bait and the fish being caught (1 lbs roach=20mill tiger)

    3. There is almost NO sense in developing.
    (Hint for beginners: get the 20mill dumbell. You then will be able to catch every big fish. Just for convenience buy the 13ft rod.)
    Whole of the above has changed with the last update though. The big yellow one isn't as strong now as far as I can see.
    BUT!
    Why buy another rod? Or even another reel?
    Baits?
    They are here for advertising as the whole rest of the stuff.
    Makes no sense.
    BECAUSE :

    4. It all makes no difference.
    25lbs line and a float with 18 size hook WILL catch something.

    Rig?
    Lakebed?
    Meaningless.
    Apart from chodrig. This will only catch in weed (not realistic as everyone who ever threw one of those into a lake knows)


    5. THE CLUTCH AND ALL CONCERNING WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A BITE
    (just press left mouse button and you can answer emails with the other hand on your smartphone).

    There is either backwinding or the clutch.
    Clutch makes a noise that anglers llllloooooove!


    B. Suggestions

    1. Just adjust one to another.
    If I'm right the venues come from different parts or ways or styles of the whole development of the game.
    I can play the Dock on a higher graphics setting.
    (excuse me if wrong)

    Develop gameplay rather then graphics.


    2. Tsss. You know it already

    3. Ask someone who actually went fishing at least once in his life.
    This as far as I can see is the second best opportunity to really make more of out the game.

    4. See above

    5. This! Will really make a difference.
    To the developers: most of you were not born when I played a game from Sierra called Trophy Bass 3.
    Yes I'm THAT old.
    For scientific reasons I found the CD (!) in the basement but it was broken.
    But as far as I can remember the gameplay of it- that might be kind of inspiration for you guys.
    Best opportunity of really sexing the game up.
    (actually there are even games on Android that are doing better in this. Don't remember them. Sorry. But there ARE some.)


    At last:
    I don't usually write something as long as this just because of a computer game.

    But there IS potential.
    Still like the game with a grain of salt.

    Keep on working

    Hi a_hutfless, thank you for giving us your thoughts and ideas for the Euro Fishing.

    I am curious about these supersonic fish, I have seen someone else mention them but so far have been unable to reproduce the issue. Can you provide more detail or a video of what you mean by this?

    Changes are being made to the behaviour of fish that will prevent the small ones from taking the large baits.

    Your comments about the equipment as well as the clutch when playing a fish will be passed onto the development team so that they can look into it.

    Are you talking about the game released in 1999? I don't think you're as old as you think you are.

    First of all yes!
    I actually mean the 1999 game.

    And nice to really get a feedback.
    The expression supersonic carp belongs to another writer in the forum here. So greetings to him.
    I was just citing.

    When there is time to do it and I then would know how to insert it here I'll do it.
    Showing the carp at lightspeed I mean.

    Perhaps someone else could do it?

    Greetings!

    Apart from all above :

    (for more in deep analysis and hints if interested in this. For free!
    And I would rather send a video to an email account.)

    Does it occur all the time or only when the fish gets closer in to the peg?

    Stephen!
    This really makes me believe that you are a man of truth.
    Because if you actually saw the phenomenon happen you won't have been asking this.
    (uhhh. English grammar- I won't give up)

    OF COURSE I don't mean fish speeding up closer to the peg!
    Which happens since one of the updates and is completely ok and relates to actual behaviour of fish.

    The Supersonic-Carp-Incident is completely different.
    Strangely enough there are two factors that as far as I can see influence it.

    Graphic setting.
    Higher setting - more SCI's (as I'd like to call it from now on)

    And even more peculiar :
    Size of fish.
    (depending on venue. Don't have time to really explain it now)


    Oooh.
    And now for description.

    SCI is like this :
    Bite.
    Then!
    Carp completely JUMPING around. They don't leave the water though.
    Teleporting!
    In Spain they move to and fro between the west and east (and I mean: from the most west [westliest?] peg up to the dam estimated 3 times a second while line is going completely slack in the sky.

    There's more to it but:
    This for now.

    Cheers

    A

    Okay, thank you a_hutfless. I will have another look and keep an eye out for this happening.
