Patch notes and Announcements

Recommended Posts

Tonight (26th on 27th of August) we'll release a new patch version 4.0.8320.

Here are the notes.

- The brakes on baitcasting reels as well as the common reels have been revised. The brake of the reels is now more heat-resistant and will not get so hot;
- The sound of the brake has been reworked in such a way that with a low tension on the spool the sound has been adapted. Players can now recognize how big the fish is and if the reel is able to withstand it;
- The automatic upward movement of the rod with a reel when the line is slacking has now been switched off;
- The automatic upward movement of the rod with a reel during the final phase of the fish fight has now been switched off;
- The reeling in of the fish with a pumping motion has been revised. If you hold the right mouse button, the rod will lift upwards. When the right mouse button is released, the rod goes down. The tighter the line is, the faster the rod will move downwards.

The following features are newly introduced to the game:
- The speed with which a fish gets fatigued now depends on the tension of the line. If the line is tight, the fish will get fatigued faster;
- In the case of the rods with a bonus, the % of the bonus has been added for a better understanding;

The following corrections were made:
- With some rods the bonus didn't work as it showed on the rods. These have been fixed. However, visually it's not showing yet. We're working on it.
- With some surface wobblers the bite that started the fish fight was failing. This is now fixed.
- In the case of feeder rods there was an error that caused the bait to not hit the ground, which reduced the bite frequency. This has now been fixed.
- We implemented some optical improvements on some of the fish and bobbers.

The following changes were made:
- The wear on the brakes during overheating is doubled;
- The wear of the spool during the drill is tripled;
- The movement of the catfish during the fight has been changed;
- The price of the Express Fishing Bob Lamp has been increased;
- The bite frequency of the fish when fishing with feeder setups (and it's various assemblies) has been increased by 10%-20%.

Thursday, 2nd of November

The game launcher has the ability to select the graphics API used by the game, DirectX 9 or 11 (you can select it by clicking the "Options" button in the upper right corner of the launcher). Players who are experiencing problems with crashes and freezes of the game client, we recommend switching to DirectX 9.

November 11th, 5pm EST servers restart! 

Friends and fellow anglers,

This Saturday we are releasing the first part of the big add-on that we promised earlier. This part of the add-on will include new consumables with bonuses to luck, energy and more.

Also from now on the appearance of a lure that’s been attacked by a fish will change to add more realism to the game.

For those of you who like to twitch their lure, we added the new ability to change the hook on lures to better and stronger ones so you won’t miss that trophy. This will also represent the basis for a new skill tree that will be developed and implemented in the future.

– In the game settings, the range of exposure and contrast adjustment has been narrowed.
– Minimum threshold of illumination of the sky and clouds is implemented.
– Corrected. The beginning of the intro video was playing without sound.
– The fish parameter “timidity” has been adjusted. Now, depending on the lighting of the environment and the transparency of the reservoir, the fish can approach the fisherman much closer.
– The buttons “Select All” and “Deselect” are added to the fish market interface.
– Implemented, replacement of hooks on lures
– Implemented visual damage to lures.
– The parameter “Acceptable hooks size” is added to the displayed parameters of the lures.
– The names of installed hooks are added to the displayed parameters of the lures in the store interface.
– Parameter “Quality of manufacturing” is added to displayed parameters of craft lures and groundbait.

– The state of the lure now slightly affects the fish biting.
– New food and drinks have been added to the game stores.
– The time of temporary bonuses for cognacs and vodka Boyar’s has been increased. Some parameters of these products were also slightly increased.

– Corrected. After calculating of weekly records, some players saw a disconnection between the game client and the server.
– Changed, the function of the quality of crafting groundbaits.
– When the line of float tackle breaks, the probability of losing the float is introduced. For fixed float set up, this probability is lower than that of a sliding float. Earlier, each line break was accompanied by loss of the float.
– Canceled, the skills point investment to crafting various baits and pieces of fish. Skill points are returned to players.

*** The work is being done to correct the following errors: “Bait is not found” and sudden freezes when changing rods, installing / lifting the rod from the stand, entering / exiting the interface. Please, if someone else encounters this problem, immediately close the game and forward the file C: \ RF4 \ Game \ rf4_x64_Data \ output_log.tx to support@rf4game.com

Dear friends and fellow anglers,

On Monday, November 20th, we will add a new patch bringing more content to Russian Fishing 4. This new content includes the feature “Orders”. Any player can complete Orders by interacting with the Café at the different water bodies. The Orders will defer by their complexity depending on the level of the water body. And so, we begin to add alternative methods of earning silver in the game. We hope you will like this patch.

 Additionally, the update will include:

- Increasing the frequency of restocking the craft materials into shops and workshops;
- Significant increase in the "catchability" of jerkbait lures;

- Increased the bonus "Luck".

And, of course, fixing the already known errors and adding small changes, the details of which will be posted directly with the release of the patch.

On Monday, 11/20/17,  the servers restart at 00:00 EST
This patch includes new game features, some changes and bug fixes.

New Game Features:

- The Cafés at the water bodies are opened and have Orders for players to complete;
- The "Number of completed cafe orders" field has been added to the player's displayed statistics. 

Changes:

- The algorithm for damage to lures has been improved. Now the weight of the fish affects the wear of the lure to a much lesser extent;
- The algorithm for calculating the quality of making lures and groundbait is improved. Now the number of embedded points in the corresponding skill affects, in a greater degree, the quality of the product;
- Implemented a display of the quality of the lure produced during crafting;
- In shops, the price of soft lures is reduced by 2-3 times and the price for top wobblers and jerkbaits is increased by 15-20%;

- Implemented automatic filling of slots when crafting baits and groundbaits. Automatic filling occurs only when only one particular item can be inserted into the slot;
- A fine tuning of the immersion speed of various lures;
- The algorithm of the line wear has been improved. Now the rate of wear depends also on the amount of line on the roll. The more the fishing line on the roll, the slower its wear;
- The frequency of restocking times of handicraft materials to shops and workshops has been increased;
- Significantly improved the "catchability" of jerkbait baits;
- Implemented a display of hidden bonuses for food and beverages. 

Bug Fixes

- Fixed: On some water bodies, environmental objects were displayed with errors;
- Fixed: The Enter key did not work in the password input field at the login screen;
- Fixed: At the start of the game, the interface scale settings were not applied;
- Fixed: In some cases, the names of bonus items in the backpack were displayed in white;
- Fixed: In the local tables of records, the species of fish not living on a particular pond were displayed;
- Fixed: For some Express Fishing lures the incorrect size of the hooks was displayed. 

*** The work is being continued to correct the following errors: “Bait is not found” and sudden freezes when changing rods, installing / lifting the rod from the stand, entering / exiting the interface. Please, if someone else encounters this problem, immediately close the game and forward the file C: \ RF4 \ Game \ rf4_x64_Data \ output_log.tx to support@rf4game.com

Dear friends,

The year 2017 comes to an end. It was a different year for everyone. For some it was a good year, for others it was a lucky year. Some were less fortunate, while others joined the stars in heaven. 

For our entire Russian Fishing team, 2017 will forever remain unforgettable! After all, it was this year that we released, albeit not on a full scale.  But we released a project that was going on for many years. This year we found new fans, welcomed back old ones and made our regular fans happy. We created a new, strong, sometimes grumpy, but loyal family. And, of course, nothing we did we could have done without you and your participation. 

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your great contribution to the development of Russian Fishing 4. And to make the holidays a bit more fun and pleasant, all participants in the game receive 10 days of the premium.

We wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year!

----
