  1. On August 2 at 2-00 AM Moscow time /August 1 at 7 pm EST the game server will be rebooted.
  2. - Improved RTCP protocol based on collected data - TCP protocol replaced by RTCP protocol - UDP support returned
  3. Dear Fishing Friends! As per the news brief that was given earlier in the week, the EN team has taken the time to assemble an Unofficial Patchnotes entry. Unofficial Patch Notes 7/22/2019 New protocol – RTCP, designed to significantly reduce the number of disconnects. This protocol will eventually replace UDP. This protocol will initially be launched in test mode. RTCP allows the monitoring of connection status and will allow the game to attempt a reconnection in the event of an interruption. NOTE: The Dev team recommends switching to RTCP by those players who have problems with frequent disconnects. The connection status indicator will be removed from the game since it should no longer be necessary. Players who have selected UDP in the game network settings will have RTCP enabled automatically. To ensure minimum complications during this test phase of the protocol, no other game changes will be implemented by this patch. Thank you! Support / Moderation English Language Team
  4. Tomorrow, on July 23 at 9:30 am MSK/ 2:30 am EST, the server will be restarted and the client will be updated, connected with the launch of a new network protocol in test mode. Approximate downtime 4 hours.

    Upcoming Patch

    Fishing Friends! Many of you have faced the problem of disconnecting from the game server. It is especially unpleasant and disruptive when the disconnect occurs during the struggle with a long-awaited trophy. The development team is working on the introduction of a new protocol - RTCP. It is designed to significantly reduce the number of disconnects. This protocol will replace UDP in the next update and will be launched in test mode. We recommend those players who have problems with frequent disconnects switch to it. The connection status indicator will be removed from the game since it is unnecessary. For players who have selected UDP in the network settings, RTCP will be enabled automatically. Thank you RF4 team
  6. Greeting Fishing Friends, RF4 is made up of many teams that all play different parts: The company management The development /programming teams The PR / news team The support/moderation teams for the different regions We are the Support / Moderation English Language Team (SMELT) We have been here and grown along with the EN community since RF4 came on the scene as a Russian language only game. Who we are and what we do: 1. We are here to help you the player to better understand the game and how to play it. We seek to provide information on the game, game mechanics and generally be a clearinghouse for game information. 2. We are here to lend support for technical issues and several members of the team focus on support. 3. We are here to act as a point of connection between the EN community and the rest of the RF4 world. 4. We are here to provide information on patches, competitions and community news. 5. We are here to moderate EN community players both on this forum and in the game. All other communities (German, Russian, Polish, etc.) have their own teams and if you are from one of the other regions in the game we direct you to the appropriate group. 6. While we do ‘police’ the forum and game in an effort to spot cheaters and toxic/abusive players we function from the hope and belief that our players can act in a mature and social fashion and that you do not require babysitting. What we are not and do not do: 1. We are not the company owners, all major business decisions and financial moves are made by the Company’s owners. As moderators, we have limits to our power. We cannot issue cash refunds or enact a financial transaction, this is in company hands and all such actions should be addressed to Admin@rf4game.com 2. We are not the devs. While we act as a vehicle for player suggestions, we have no ability to change the game for good or ill. 3. We are not the news team. We know precisely as much as we are told. While we issue patch notes and other such information we are only the messengers. What the company chooses to share with us is bound by a Nondisclosure Agreement and we are expected to conduct ourselves in a mature and secure fashion regarding company information. We hope that this note will help our community to better understand the role of SMELT. Tight lines!
  7. Hello, I believe something got lost in translation here please try again as what you have posted makes very little sense. Thank you RF4 Team
  8. I want to thank you for your opinions but as it was stated we are admins and mods not Devs all we can do is relay the information up the line and this has been done, When The Devs have a fix for this it will get implemented so this topic is now closed for discussion. Thank you RF4 team
  9. Recently, we have received a lot of complaints from players regarding excessive asking for in-game chat items. However, these complaints do not only apply to new players who spam chat requests for equipment, but also those who have been maliciously responding to such messages maliciously and inappropriately. We understand that such behaviors as requests for novice players can make many of you nervous. If a new player posts messages that bother you: requests for help, lures or anything else, all you need to do is place a player on the black list and you will not see any more messages from that person. Let's not forget, however, that each of us started one day and everybody had many questions at the beginning. It is harder for some to start, especially for those who have not been fishing before or had little contact with fishing. If a new player asks for help, it is worth suggesting or advise, although of course it is not a duty. If the player does it repeatedly, repeatedly asks for items, spamming and harassing these other players' chat questions - this behavior is not welcome and you can report them by left-clicking on the player's name and selecting the option "Report inappropriate behavior". After reporting, we will be able to take care of the matter. Please, remember, however, that as we do not welcome repeated requests for items in the game chat, we can not tolerate malicious, boorish or vulgar behavior towards new players. If someone reacts to messages from novice players in an inappropriate way and with their behavior discourages new players to the game, such a person should reckon with the fact that the consequences can also be derived from it. If somebody disturbs you, add it to the blacklist or submit it. Do not let yourself be provoked, because you can also be punished for inappropriate behavior. Your RF4 Team
  10. General warning, we are cracking down on all 3rd party software used to gain illegal advantage in a game, as well as accounts that directly benefit from those activities. And everyone who gets caught buying or selling things for real money. Players participating in those activities will be blocked without warning. This includes: Bots Cheat software Macros Any modification to the game files.
  11. I just read your letter, and I wanted to reply to you. 1st I love this game very much- you can see by the hrs I play. I just want to pass along some info that I hope will help RF4 with players. I pray that I will not be punished for this message. 1st many of us live n fear that our accounts will be nerfed so we catch little to nothing- this is a rumor out there.- and it is believed by many. We can not chat freely even on steam, because there are those who copy and paste it to RF4. So we feel like we are being spied on, this has happened- I saw it myself. Speaking for myself- the comps are no longer anything I am interested in, to many cheaters, and seems nothing is being done about it- if something is- share it with us- so we feel like the game is being taken care of. I am telling you this not to complain- I want to share with you what is being said and felt by players. The game is just becoming less enjoyable to play as a whole, and that is sad, we love this game. We log on to catch fish, and enjoy our selves, spending 1-2 hrs and not catch is not fun. I love this game, and I wanted to try and help RF4 with this message, I hope it is taken in the context I wrote it in. well that is all, take care, and thanks for reading my message.

    - Seasonal fairs are opened. - Seasonal fairs are offering tackle from new manufacturers “Pomor” and “Chernomorets” (floats, lures, feeders, rods and reels). - Added. TL (telescopic rods) records table is implemented. - Changed. Amount of points for UL records have been changed. - The images of medals for the first places in the UL weekly record table have been updated. - A new type of boat has been introduced into the game - the high-speed rubber boat Kostroma. - Implemented. Speed of character movement depends on the power of the line tension. - Addition fish market has been introduced to Akhtuba river. Located down the river. - Fish Mid-size weight at Belaya river has been increased. - Exp points for Kessler's Herring has been lowered. - Kessler's Herring price has been lowered by 10%. - Pike price has been increased by 25%. - New fight behavior patterns are introduced to species such as Taimen, Beluga, and all sturgeons. - Fixed. Sometimes crafted leaders didn’t stack. Attention!!! Last update description was inaccurate about the reference to the fish getting off the hook chance. The chance of the fish getting off the hook goes down to 0 only when the tension of the line is always on. If a player lets the tension of the line go to slack, the chance that the fish gets off the line increases to its original value.

    Patch Notes: - Implemented: An alternative experimental communication protocol with the Game Server (UDP). We recommend switching to this communication protocol for players who experience a lot of connectivity issues with the game server. The protocol is selected in the game settings under the "Network" tab. After changing the protocol, please restart the game. - When the network connection with the server is broken, and the player has landed the fish prior to the disconnect, it will automatically go into the keepnet. - The probability of losing a fish after a long drill, has been reduced to zero.. - Kuori Lake has been reworked, improving the activity of fish specifically for spin fishing. Fish at Kuori lake may change their habitat and/or bait priorities. - For Lake Trout, the trophy weight, the average catch weight and its sell price were increased. - For Arctic Char, the trophy weight, the average catch weight and the population were increased, the sell price was reduced. - For Blue Bream, the trophy weight has been increased. - For Sevan Trout, the sell price has been increased. - For Kessler's Herring, the sell price has been reduced. - If a player is put at the Penalty Pond, the keepnet is no longer emptied. However, only the fish caught at the Penalty Pond count towards the assigned penalty weight. - Added Korean translation. - Increased likelihood of harvesting bait with a shovel. - Fixed. When moving to the spawning point of the water body after the character falls into the water, the fish that was on the line at this moment was counted as caught and placed in the keepnet.

    - Fixed. Fully spooled line wasn’t registering with the mechanics of a reel. - Fixed: In some cases, when the fish was caught, there was a long delay before “catch” interface was displayed.
