So, does this mean that if you have two similar groundbaits in the same spot i.e. carp drymix with corn base and carp drymix with ground peas base, and some of the other ingredients (corn, maggots) aren't in the same slot - the two GB's don't compliment each other at all? The one that was used most recently replaces/cancels out the former? Or just that the same ingredients in different slots miss out on a bonus cumulative effect?
What would be more effective - 10 units of the same type of GB, or 5 units each of 2 different types, for the same target species?
A few more questions about GB. Are there any differences in mechanics between thrown GB, GB in a feeder, and drymix in a rocket feeder?
I have over 1200 hours in game, and I still don't honestly know whether my GB is working correctly half the time - does the 'active zone' of feeder GB move actively when the feeder moves? i.e. if I reel in a bit, will the GB zone also move? Or does it activate in a static area as soon as it hits the water? If the GB does activate when it hits the water, does this include 'accidental' hits i.e. when you draw the rod back for casting, and there is water behind you, sometimes you hear the splash of the tackle connecting with the water behind you before you release LMB to cast.
For spod drymix, does it just activate as soon as it hits the water, or does the rocket have to reach the bottom? Do you have to leave it in the water or can you retrieve it immediately?
I've heard that there is an 'overfeeding' mechanic, that if you throw more than 10 units of any GB into one spot, the bite rate will drop. Is this limit of 10 map-wide i.e. I can only ever have up to 10 units of GB in the water, no matter how widely they are distributed? If no, is it possible to create 3 different gb spots with 10 units each, for different rods with different rigs and baits etc?
Finally, to what extent does 'flavour matching' boost your fishing, how much overlap/freedom is there i.e. do I have to include the exact boilie size in my GB as my hookbait, or will having the same flavour but a different size also be effective? How much overlap is there between flavours? i.e. will cream pellets boost a sweet cream boilie hookbait? Or would I need to find 'sweet cream' pellets? etc Would including corn feed pellets boost artificial corn baits? Real corn baits? Neither?
