    Hi everyone

    Fishing Sim World launched just over a week ago now and since then you’ve been providing us with fantastic, constructive feedback on your experiences playing the game. The overall sentiment has been very positive, and we are grateful for that but it is clear that there are a number of bugs that need fixing and improvements to some areas of the gameplay that can be made. We are working hard to reproduce the issues you’ve reported to us and putting together our first post-release update for Fishing Sim World. As well as the fixes and improvements, there will also be new gameplay features. Full release notes will be provided but highlights include:
    • Bluegill added to Lake Johnson and Lake Boulder
    • Walleye added to Lake Boulder
    • Ability to unlock all achievements
    • Option to invert x and y axis
    • Fixed crash at the end of single player tournaments
    • Fixed endless loading into live tournament events
    • Ability to mute other players in multiplayer
    • Ability to switch from driving the boat to fishing in multiplayer
    • Fixed timer disappearing in live events
    • Fixed boat spawn positions on Lake Johnson
    • Fixed bank sticks occasionally floating
    • Fixed fish getting stuck behind jetty
    • Fixed ‘show top’ button when viewing leaderboards
    • Dovetail Live t-shirt and boat for signing up to / logging into Dovetail Live
    • Increase the length of time of the fight for bass species
    • Reduced the frequency of bites on European venues
    • Option to turn off the HUD when fishing
    Currently, our development team are working hard to identify and reproduce the issues that are being reported to us. Our process is reproduction of the issues, then fixes for each. We then test the game to ensure that the issues have been fixed correctly, before submitting the latest build of the game to our console partners and finally releasing the update to you. This process will take a few weeks to complete but we will provide you with weekly updates on our progress.

    *PC Only – We are launching a Beta programme very soon which will enable us to get your feedback quicker, allow the development team to communicate with the community directly and help get updates to PC and console quicker. Full details on how to sign up to this Beta programme will be posted on our website shortly.

    Ok so all these issues listed are being worked on for a October patch? They have nothing to do with this morning patch I had to download.

    Bluegill. **yawn**

    Why do developers insist on adding boring panfish nobody cares about into their games when there is so much fun predator species to add.

    Is there any chance of in the future a river venue? Would be great to target barbel if it was a UK located River, or perhaps one of the Larger European rivers ie. Ebro where Wels Catfish could reach the 200-250lbs mark.
    Also, zander needs adding to the canal.

    Have to agree,there's a lot of stuff that needs fixing before any new content is added.
    The invert camera option is a must have for a lot of us & still baffles me why it was left out in the first place.
    Good to see the other things being worked on as well.

    I agree with SPACE ODDITY, just fix the problems/issues that we have now before anything else.

    Nice to see that the fish getting stuck behind the dock problem is getting fixed, I had that happen two or three times on Lake Johnson the last time I played.

    walleye and bluegill, nice.

    What about adding catfish in US lakes, and allow us to catch catfish with spining?

    no fix for all the multiplayers mode, than ruined the fun? game crash when fish bite, when 2 players in the room if another one try to join, game crash and other players game crash, blank fish stats windows, impossible to switch driving mode to fishing mode.
    There are lot of game crash bugs in multiplayer mode, when more than 2 players in the room fix plz.

    That's not a full list of bugs being worked on,just some of them,so I would think the multiplayer issues are being looked at as well.

    First want to say that fixing the bugs in game should be priority before adding extras! Please fix the issues first! Just wanted to say a few things about the sim side of the game. Bass fishing, add spotted bass, white bass, striped bass with the largemouth and smallmouth. Adding more artificial soft baits like 7” and 10” curl tail plastic worms, lizards, crawdads, jigs/jig-n-pig and having the option to Texas rig them with a bullet weight would be great. Tube baits for smallmouth! In the US bass fishing artificial baits is extremely popular and working these baits along cover and weeds is a good way to catch bass. Love the Lilly Pads! Small size bass should be easy to get in compared to the big ones, not the same fight. It would be more realistic if the big bass above 9 lbs would be more rare and not happen as much. Shouldn’t be able to catch 12-15 lb. bass one after another so much??. I’d like to be able to catch bass in places that don’t show fish on the locator screen. Because using the “Trolling motor”, would be great to troll along the shore as you cast, and never know when your gonna get the big one! Game is great and with update coming will be awesome! This is my opinion for what it’s worth. I live in the US, have spent years fishing bass tournaments, but I’m not professional. Just a guy who has seen a few things having fun bass fishing. Keep up the good work DTG, can’t wait to see what you can do with this game, thanks!

    if the fish finder is going to just show fish blobs and no other detail it would be better to remove it all together. This isnt a fish sim, its run around the lake until you see giant fish symbols on your screen. That's not how real life works.

    It doesn't just show fish blobs, it gives you information on size of fish, depth of fish and depth of lake bed. I have no experience on fishing for bass in real life, so I need explaining what you mean by 'That's not how real life works'?

    So when will you be making the trolling motor functional? I'm not purchasing until that update. The game is called fishing sim world. When I'm fishing I use my trolling motor to fine tune my position and not have to use my big motor for that. Just my opinion, but I'm sure other's would agree with me? It looks like you guys care about the input from your consumers, keep up the good work and hopefully down the road I will purchase this game. Thanks, PhillyBass.

    So I broke down and bought the game today and I'm loving it. It's very fun and addicting. Still need that trolling motor to be functional though.

    Hope the trolling motors work by the time people start unlocking the top Bass Cat bass boat. I haven’t seen any videos of this boat being used yet.

    I do not understand, is it just for the moment, I wonder why are not there big catfish, the biggest weighs 60lbs, it's a joke? I have the equipment to fish a shark but I fish carp bigger than catfish. Whatever.

    Cool, so how did you earn TP for this? Isn't it 100,000 ? I lost a lot when single player tournaments would crash.

    Just been playing freedom fishing. I earn just about all my TP from levelling up, I have prestige twice, and you earn around 155,000 TP per run (levelling from 1 to 100.)
