  1. Patch Notes: 14/FEB/19 Visible Fruit and Head Bobbing

    Here we go again with head bobbing, and here we go again, turning it off.
  2. Can We Talk About The Lag On Indy Now?

    Well, killed the server until further notice. That's one way to kill the lag. Hope this gets fixed soon. No hurries, as long as it really gets fixed.
  3. Slaying - Red Dragon

    I am coming and will bring Handsomestranger to do the fighting. Since you are in my neighborhood (A Strange Place is my place) this will be a short trip. Should be lots of fun!
  4. Patch Notes 17/DEC/18 Gone Fishing

    Roccandi, you have just pointed out why I never bother with the "missions". Why on earth should I do thousands of repeat actions to win a mission? Because the game told me to do them? They make no sense and accomplish nothing, except you get to call yourself "winner". What do you win? Does that make any real difference to you or your gameplay? If not, why bother?
  5. I went to make a stack of fishing lines. Decided that it would be faster to use the crafting window. When I added my hand to the window and 64 strings of cloth, I was able to max the stacked actions (7 in my case) and had no problem hitting the create button and making 7 basic fishing lines at a time. Then I went to make light fishing lines. I added the spinning wheel to the crafting window, and the 64 basic fishing lines. But when I hit the create button, it will only make 1 light fishing line, it will not stack actions to make 7. It is still set for 7 actions, and the 7 dots all light up when I hit create, but only 1 line gets made. Event window shows the actions all stacking, but only the first completes. I moved on to the rope tool to make medium fishing lines, put the ropetool in the crafting window and the 64 light fishing lines. I was able to hit create and it made 7 lines at a time, as it should do. Once again I went to the spinning wheel, this time to make heavy fishing lines from the mediums. Once again the actions in the crafting window show, the event window shows 7 actions stacked, but only the first action completes. Finally, I went back to the ropetool with the heavy fishing lines to make braided fishing lines. And once again, it worked just fine in the crafting window, actions stacking and completing properly. So in closing, the problem is with stacking actions on the spinning wheel to make fishing lines. Since we are going to need new lines when the old ones snap, please make sure we can use our crafting window properly to mass produce these lines. Thanks.
  6. Just had one of the new professional fishing reels go rare, it is listed in blue and does have the glow. But when you examine it there is no rare description.
  7. [Fixed] Mailing cost is crazy with new items!

    I apologize, didn't see your post. Could a dev please combine this into that post?
  8. [Fixed] Mailing cost is crazy with new items!

    Ok, just had a test of tackleboxes for another issue, when we found that the mail system is charging 17c to mail a tacklebox. Seems it is counting the trays inside as separate items.
  9. Do you like the new fishing system?

    I'm finally finding tiles where I get the menu option Nature - Search for wurms. When I do it I get this message: [09:45:27] You do a rain danec on the dirt tile and a wurm pops to the surface, which you grab. That's cute, but incredibly stupid. Like I said, all I should need to do is dig up a dirt and search it for wurms. RL worms are everywhere, especially in cultivated soil like a garden or farm. Worms are the true rulers of the earth, they make the soil arable so you can grow crops and live. They turn over the entire surface of the earth to 6 inches deep every year, very slowly. They are as common as dirt and should be just as easy to find. I should not be waiting for them to "spawn" on tiles.

    Go ahead and make your comments, the Devs won't know there is a real problem if only a few of us comment. Get everyone you know to make comments too. Let's get this fixed, it does have potential if they make the proper corrections for the masses.

    But I'm not the only customer complaining, am I?

    I liked Tich too, but her memory is not a reason to be stubborn. I'm at 99.70 fishing myself, but I do not enjoy the new system as it is. If you do not make some major tweaks, you will find you have wasted your time. Listening to what we tell you is a good thing.

    WRONG!! When you decide that the customer isn't right, you lose a customer. I went through this before with Rolf. It got me a 30 day ban from the forums for arguing with him. But you know what? I was right, everyone else was just as upset about that update back then, and it got reversed, like I said needed to be done. I'm not trying to be nasty, I was actually looking forward to this update. But there are issues with it, and if you do not listen to us and fix them, you will lose players. Not all of us want to have something as simple as fishing take so much concentration to do. As to the basic fishing rod, it is more than it used to be, and if they still have to watch and double click at just the right moment, it isn't the same as it used to be either. I have to go along with what others are saying. leave fishing as it was, add in the new skill sport fishing for all this new equipment.

    This forum chat is all about the problems with this update, so right now it makes more sense to keep all the problems here. As to the all cap at the end of a sentence, it saves me from having to make a separate post to you (It got your attention, didn't it?) As to having to pay attention, it may not be a bug, but the way it works now is a mistake compared to the other skills. Telling us we have to accept it is forgetting one thing, we are the customer, and we are saying we do not like it. Have you ever heard of the old saying, the customer is always right?

    I know, takes some practice to find where it is best to hold your cursor to click and hook the fish. It should not matter, but it does. ANOTHER TWEAK POINT DEVS.
