    Our second update for Fishing Sim World has now been launched on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Again, your input has been invaluable on our forums or through reviews and social media channels.

    This update focusses primarily on bug fixes but here are the highlights;

    Improvements
    o Improved the pike fighting. Bigger pike have more energy and the fight takes longer
    o New ripples and water foaming to indicate a fishes location (fish tells)
    o Improved weather conditions and effect of conditions to the environment on all venues
    o Ensured trees appear more ‘crisp’ and less blurry over distance on all venues
    o The character now gets wet when it rains in game
    o Decreased the number of fish tells on Grand Union Canal
    o Improved collision on water features such as rocks to stop fish swimming through them
    o Improved collision between players in multiplayer
    o Improved collision between the players boat and reeds in the water

    Bug Fixes
    • Fixed crash related to those players who purchased the Sunline Siglon PE 30lb line.
      • IMPORTANT: For those players who created a tackle box using the Sunline Siglon PE 30lb line between 1st Patch and 2nd Patch the game will no longer crash when viewing the item or attempt to go onto a lake. However, it will crash if you go into the lake and equip the faulty tacklebox. To fix this issue, delete your tackle box containing the affected line after the Pike Fighting Update patch installs
    • Catching Walleye now awards experience points (XP)
    • Fixed rod failing to be sitting on bank sticks correctly when you are a multiplayer client
    • Fixed fellow player appearing to walk on the spot in multiplayer
    • Fixed random coloured flashing reflections on the water
    • Fixed thick black line on the horizon of the water
    • The loading spinner icon no longer shows indefinitely above an item in the in-game shop
    • Ensured boats appear correctly in the shop model viewer
    • Button prompts appear correctly for all actions on Xbox One
    • Replaced the canopy for a roof on second jetty building on Lake Boulder so a rod no longer passes through it
    • Depth UI appears correctly when fishing at depths of over 100ft
    • Equipment textures immediately load correctly in shop and customise menus
    • Fixed species stats circle not appearing correctly on lake selection screen
    • Dovetail Live (DTL) article buttons appear correctly
    • Message is given when no articles are available or no internet connection when accessing DTL articles
    • DTL options appear in settings menu after loading the game not signed in but then signing in when prompted
    • Lure rattling audio no longer plays when driving
    • General clothing improvements

    We also want to tell you what we are working on in the next update, ‘The Trolling Motor update’ which will be coming soon. Highlights include:
    - Trolling motor feature – ability to use the trolling motor in-game
    - New species – Zander will be added to all appropriate lakes
    - New rod resistance – the amount of resistance when moving the rod will give you the feel for the weight of the fish you are fighting
    • Added bigger trophy catfish to Waldsee
    • Improved the amount the rod bends in relation to what type of rod it is. Carp rods will bend less than bass rods
    • Slightly moved boat spawn positions on Lake Boulder so all boats spawn consistently in single player tournaments
    • Ensured button prompts disappear when teleporting to another location
    • Improved the balance of audio after recent changes to tension sounds
    • Ensured all lakes and live events appear in menu correctly and can be loaded
    • Ensured lure rattling audio can only be heard at appropriate times
    • Fixed branches of trees popping out on character on Bergsee
    • Characters no longer walk on top of banksticks/rods
    • Improved collision on US lakes to stop boat driving through vegetation
    • Ensured male and female smiles appear correctly on catch screen
    • Improved appearance of rain falling from sky
    • Ensure the pause menu doesn’t show when in fish presentation screen in multiplayer

    When are you gonna learn to do proper patching on Xbox so that we don't have to re-download the whole game every time that there's an update ?

    At least it’s being updated with fixes instead of dlc rush hoping the new makes us ignore the bugs
    .. 9 gigs doesn’t really bug me with high speed internet but I can see your point with it being a bit much with a lower speed internet but at least you’ll only have to do it once a month if they keep to schedule.

    DLC rush is already happening. Trophies ( PS4 ) for first DLC lake was added last month already and DLC in-game store has been implemented today. Don't be surprised if the first DLC is pushed out this month already.

    Gicantica still broken , Xbox stats still broken , fish snap offs still broken , hook sizes still broken, FPS stuttering worse than ever.
    P%$% poor update.

    I tend to agree with Wikus they shouldn't work on releasing DLC until all the problems/issues in the base game are dealt with. Gigantica is pointless now sat on there for 1hr yesterday and only caught 8lb Tench on size 4 hook 18mm dumbell and 40lb braid, they have lowered the bite rate on this lake way too much to the point that i wont go on it anymore.

    Need to add a difficulty setting so the harder it is to catch the better the reward. Catch rate is ridiculous,way to often. Can't even get three rods out still.

    Online rooms with friends still messed up. Same issues as day 1. That's 2 patches and no improvements to one of the most important parts of this game. DTG what's your plan to fix it?

    I hope they fix Bass fishing with friends before they put this out. Since day one, Host has no problem but any guest have a horrible experience. Impossible to fish with friends in an online room. Still can't land a fish on time, takes 30 extra seconds, and half the time you lose the fish. Also camera will spin around and frame rate drops to 5 fps, makes you physically sick. This happens on all lakes from time to time, not just Bass fishing.

    Well i am assuming the trolling motor update is seperate from the dlc so they are still working on game with additions being asked for and bug fixes that are needed.. and dlc is also needed to keep studios revenue stream up as they got to pay everyone on dev team for what they do. I dont mind the dlc rush as long as its stuff the playerbase really wants for the game. the multiplayer could use some tlc sure the damn lines annoying as crap for second player goes everywhere and doesnt render right for anyones view flops everywhere.. also now and then when hooking a fish camera view does annoying 360 degree spin that doesn't stop... also when on boat lakes second player besides host always have line break.... multiplayer really only works well on european lakes.
