    Please fix the issue to remap the keys for PC users.. This will help many users that have difficult time using the keys if there like right or left handed..

    Also something needs to be done with the fish that are sitting at depths of 82 and 150 feet of water. The deep divers don't reach the spot in time. Every lure in the game don't go that deep and if you try reeling in fast.. by time it gets even 25 feet the lure is already back to the rod. So either there lures that suppose to dive this deep get worked a bit. The sunrise and night fishing makes it more difficult if can't reach the fish with our lures. Thank you.

    This was an installation update SPACE ODDITY

    We would like to do a river venue in future and bring in additional European species.

    We will have a look in to doing this.

    We are interested in bringing in the US catfish species in future.

    We are looking in to the issues with multiplayer.

    We are unable to replicate this one and are still looking in to what might be causing the problem.

    Thank you for the suggestions, I'll pass them on to the development team. We will be adding more tackle options in future and we want to give better control over what depth you are fishing at. We're glad you're enjoying the game so far.

    We will look at adding in some more big catfish in future. Manor Farm is a real world venue so the fish population mirrors that of the real lake.

    The trolling motor will be coming in a future update. It won't make it into this update but we will let you know when it is going to be added to the game.

    This is something that we want to change.

    Thank you for the suggestions, we will be looking to add more lures in game in future.

    Rainbow trout aren't in our plans at the moment but we may look into adding them in future.

    You will be able to remap your keys in the next update.

    We are going to work on the depth at which the fish swim.

    Thank you kindly for listen to us players. Communication what helps to being everyone together and working to make a better game for the players/consumers. This game to me is the best fishing game. With the future additions to the game is great. Hope there be even more tournament types as the game grows.

    One suggestion I would like to see under the Match type comp. I would to see the bass lakes get added to these.. Catching as many fish as possible for bass would be just as good too. For future venues. If your planning on to do rivers. These supposed to be whats based on European fish..

    https://www.first-nature.com/fishes/index.php

    Thought maybe this site might help out in future. Again thank you guys for listening to us. This what makes the game great to us.

    Great to see some response on all these issues!

    I play on xbox but a member of a fb group I'm in said the issue with the slow speed boats on ps4 only seems to effect his older launch controller, not the newer version currently out?

    Dunno if it's relevant but worth testing :)

    The bass lakes will feature in the match tournaments over time.

    Thank you for the link, I'll send it on to our development team for future reference.

    We have looked at this internally with V1 and V2 controllers on PS4 and we haven't had the issue occur for us. We will be making an adjustment for the acceleration for the boats that we hope will solve the issue for those that are experiencing it.

    Is it possible to add the fish jumping while fighting to future updates. Also I believe the splash sound could be reworked in some way.. When a fish is splashing it sounds more like a marble or pebble being through into the water. Also fish jumps out of water occasionally when feeding on insects which also be cool to see in the game.

    Fish Jumping
    -

    Sounds Effect
    https://www.pond5.com/sound-effects/1/fish-jumping.html

    Hope these will help out towards getting a perfect sound for the splashing and also fish jumping animation idea.

    So I have decided to do a quick video of the upcoming update for this game. I know there's many people that don't go into these forums or websites to read into games they play. I for one like to keep up with whats going on in games such as this. For example, this update don't see posted on youtube or steam. so I want to be able to help the player by getting the word out that you guys are working on fixing and adding new features to the game. Again thank you guys for your amazing work and providing us a great fishing game.

    We haven't got a fixed date for the update going live yet but we will update you when we can.

    We will be aiming to add the jumping to the behaviour of the bass in future..

    Great video!

    Quick question for the dev team.. There's times when we are catching fish. Like example some carp or bass. The fish will sit at your feet for long period of time not moving but not tired enough to net the fish. I believe that the option should be there. If there sitting at your feet and not fighting. We should be able to land/net the fish manually instead of wasting the time to catch the fish especially during a comp.

    Also there any chance to fixing the 30 FPS cap? This game has a very strange trail when moving the rod too fast or the line. You can see a the indicator even the rod leaving trails when moving fast. I believe if the frame rate was at 60. It would fix that strange looking lag it has.

    I don't think they were aware of it but I'm sure it will be fixed too based on what you reported but to b rude about it don't help the matter. Could of just pointed it out. When you first start out the game if you noticed. Everyone started out at 0lbs or 0inches. So the system had to place you somewhere against everyone else and this decided to go alphabetical order and sure it wasn't an intention to piss people off. I mean your name could of started with a Z like someone by name of Zack.. I start out with a I and I should of been ranked 5. but instead I rank 9. it didn't bother me. I still got over 85k TP..

    If you submit the same score as someone else in a online tournament, it does not sort positions by alphabetical order as you have suggested. I believe it sorts positions on who gets that score first. Also you are not the highest rank, you are the highest level, there is a difference. Rank is something that can go up or down, level only goes up. Level reflects how much time you put in & how well you are doing, rank reflects how skilful you are. When having the same score as someone else, your position should not be based on how high level you are, if should be based on who got that score first.

    I took a screen shot of the boards, and you can clearly see lots of gamers with the same score, but not in alphabetical order.

    We will have a look at making fixes to the fishing being stuck at your feet.

    We do want to increase the frame rate to 60fps but this requires extensive work and wouldn't be implemented any time in the near future.

    Thank you for the video, I'll pass it on to the development team.

    No fixed date yet, it is going for submission with the console so we will be able to give a fixed date in the next week or so.

    This would be super cool.. To set markers on the lake for when you want to come back to that spot another time. Make it only visible on the map and GPS.. not an actual marker on the lake that you can see on the lake. like the indicators you see for your line.. Thought would be really annoying.

    It looks like this update will be shortly after the PC user get it to finalize the update for us console users. Which is alright for me. With the open beta for PC user would help get the update out faster with live positive feedback from the PC users.

    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.

    I think I will wait until the new patch arrives. hopefully that part missing a fish cause it swims at you gets resolved.. can't reel when fish is swimming at you and you only have a few seconds to hook the fish but many times you will miss the fish. then it's gone.. missed some very big bass cause of this.

    Bugs with PC

    -When slack is reeled in all the way, the hook set is off and mostly poor, no matter the direction of the rod or hook set.

    -when fighting fish for to long, the fish seems to go ballistic and shoots off into the distance with no way of doing anything..just simply runs off and breaks the line, even when adjusting the drag and tension as well as slack. some scenarios are just auto loss.

    -takes a long time to get the fish into the boat when the"net" icon has popped up and the fish is right beside the boat for a good 5-7secs.

    -Hand animation doesn't match with reeling speed when reeling in with the rod.

    -Can't fish past 80- 150ft even though fish are seen at that depth.

    Highly doubt it,the process can take up to 3 weeks sometimes,depends on how many other patches are going through the certification process at the same time.
    It's not even been a week as far as I know.

    Trying to create hype by streaming a bug fix update. ***Shakes head*** Now that is sad. If it was a major content update sure , but for a bug fix update no. Just get the update out !
    And why must the PC players wait for consoles. Release it for PC players at least , no certification nonsense there , they can have the update already.

    So the PC users are getting updates... great news... so when do the xbox one users get their update exactly? How regularly will updates come, and how do we update our gameplay? Can anyone advise?

    I have a question on this bit on the latest news post:

    " New "immersion mode" giving you the option to turn off HUD icons "

    Will that mode remove ALL hud elements , or only the bite indicator that's on the tip of the line.
    Cos that bite indicator bubble is the only issue , the other hud elements are very necessary and if that new mode removes all of it then that options is useless. We need an option that removes only that bubble at the end of the line.

    I don't think this is your typical sized update, its more like the newest version build of the game.
