  1. The reason we do not allow silver to gold is that it will lead to silver farm-gold conversion-sell gold for real-world money. We already have to police people breaking the terms of service by trying to sell gear and gold for real money. Silver to gold would multiply the problem 1000 fold. Also, you do know the repair times are in-game days, not real days right (joke)
  2. Thanks for the information. What did you have your drag set to?
  3. @jay jay Thank you for the info! We hope to see more from other people
  4. Hello friends, Do you have a case of noodle rod? Many players in the EN server claim to have certain rods acting like a noodle since the June 4 update. In our ongoing effort to pinpoint what is causing this and to understand why it is primarily EN players that are reporting it we would ask that you lend us a helping hand: If you have been getting the noodle effect please post to this thread with the following: 1. A inventory screen grab of the specific set up you are using 2. The lake or lakes it happened 3. Your reeling speed and Drag settings at the time it happened 4. Include a screen shot of the rod in noodle state if you can (not required but very helpful) We hope with this informaton to get to the bottom of this noodle crisis... Thanks guys Kache
  5. Dear friends! We have to admit that the last patch was extremely unsuccessful. We're going to make it right in the next few days. Firstly, “Fish Got Away”. We have located an error that had increased the number of occurrences of “Fish Got Away”, and a fix will be included in the update. Secondly, the range of bleak weight suitable for the manufacture of live bait was narrowed excessively. We've analyzed the game data and the range will be expanded 40g -70g. Thirdly, when displaying ping, frequent cases of disconnection have been taking place and we have decided to disable this function at the moment. Fourth, Clarification on the change in the sensitivity of the indicator when exceeding the recommended test weight for rods. The idea was to warn the player in advance about the increased wear and, as a result, the threat of damage to the gear. Pre-patch the overload indication started to work when the weight of the rigging was exceeded by 50%, However in the patch we have reduced this figure to 10%. We will add the "Mass" parameter to all the elements, which will allow players to calculate the total weight of the equipment and correctly assemble the gear without overloading. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you! RF4 Team
  6. Thank you for pointing this out, I am adding this to our list of things to look into. one posibiliy is that the lures have a hook size limit. You may have only one lure that can be added to the size 8 hook, but many that fit the larger size 6. I would suggest adding this to bug reports if you feel that it is a bug.
  7. I would like to personaly express my appreciation for the depth and honesty of the posts in this thread. I am NOT here today to be an mouth piece setting out to turn your attention away from the subject at hand. Rather I am here to say that this thread is the very kind of thing that we are currently striving towards with our new policies. The patch note claifications I wrote are a 1st and are part of our efforts to bring more clarity and transparancy to the community. I ask that we reach a simple accord, that we the support team do our very best to live up to the new standards of community support, clarity and patience and that you the community approach us with civility and thoughtful discussion such as has been demonstrated in this thread. Posts that show dissagreement with the company's policies or express concern about the state of things WILL NOT be seen a rabble rousing nor will punitive actions be leveled on players simpy for expressing their opinions. However on the other side of things the form in which those opinions and concerns are delivered do matter and when they are delivered with hostility, profanity, and personal insults all that happens is that the post is taken down and the person who wrote it loses their chance to express the opinion they wrote. I am excited to see some real dialogue happening and look forward to the future of the forum. At the end of the day we are a support team, not devs. We don't create game policy and work with what we are given by the company and by the community and have the struggle of trying to have a relationship with both. It can be rough being the messanger. To the OP: It is a shame to see you go, Your constructive posts have always been appreciated by the team. We at support hate to see any player go, after all - the players are the heart and soul of the game. All we can do is hope that in time you will see the changes and direction that you find appealing and come back. In the mean while fare thee well.
  8. How floats affect Terminal Tackle Test Weight Totals Float weight In all statistical information given about a float one will find a weight listed in grams. For instance the Silver Fish Total Cast 932-140 Waggler Float lists: Type: Waggler Weight 14g Glowing: Yes The 14 gram Weight listed is NOT THE WEIGHT OF THE FLOAT itself but is instead the AMOUNT OF WEIGHT THE FLOAT CAN SUPPORT. Currently the actual weight of the float itself is not listed in game. While it is expected that actual float mass will be added to information in future updates, currently player must experiment with different floats when rigging a rod. Floats will come in many different weights due to differences in construction material and float type. For instance with two floats of the same type, size and shape, one made of Styrofoam or plastic will weigh less than one made of wood or one that is weighted for casting distance. It is important to read the descriptions of floats when buying / choosing them as the descriptive text will tell you if a float series are ‘heavy’ floats. For instance in our example the description reads: “Total Cast is a series of WEIGHTED floats (wagglers)…: Further on in the description it says: “Their WEIGHT RANGE makes this series perfect for medium and long distance casting…” As one can see it clearly indicates that these floats are heavy and thus will add substantially to the over all weight total of the terminal tackle on the line (called Test in the rods statistics) It is hoped that Float Mass will be added to float descriptions in future updates.
  9. Bleak Recently there has been much comment and speculation regarding the changes made to the bleak as a bait fish. Specifically the weight of Bleak that can be used as bait has been set to a range of 50g -70g. In our desire to insure clarity for the players regarding this change, inquiries where made by the team to find out the reason for this change. The information we have received is as follows: RF4 is currently in beta and as a result it is undergoing a constant process of evaluation and balancing. Rebalancing is done based on statistical data gathered over a period of time. Once sufficient data is gathered balance changes are implemented in an effort to further the overall vision of the final game state. The vision of the game is for there to be a rate of progress for the players to insure longevity of game play. We wish to ensure that the player has something to strive for continuously and at a consistent rate of progress no matter what style of fishing they prefer. This rate of progress must be based in the time and effort the player makes and any mechanic that has the effect of abbreviating or lengthening the over all arc of progress for the players of a specic type of fishing tends to be altered in order to regain the over all vision. In the case of the weight of bleak used as bait it was affecting the over all arc of progression for that segment of players that depended heavily on that specific mechanic. Changes were made to bring that segment of game mechanic back in line with the mechanics depended upon by anglers of all types. Terminal Tackle Test Weight The June 2019 patch has included the refinement of the Terminal Tackle Test system of RF4. Each rod has a ‘Test’ recommendation which is the range of weight of the combined total ‘Terminal tackle’. Terminal tackle is everything that is added to a rod’s fishing line (sinkers, floats, leaders, hooks, bait, feeders etc.). All items that are added to the line have a weight and this total weight is added up to give the ‘Total Test’. If the Total Test is greater in weight than the recommended Test in the rod’s statistics, the rod is considered to be ‘Over Test’ and an indication of this is given to the player in the HUD. An Over Test rig will have issues with its behavior when casting and other actions as well as having an increased risk of breaking / structural failure. The early June 2019 patch refined the system as follows; sensitivity of the over weight reading has been made more accurate, thus Over Test rigs that in the past did not completely accurately register an indication in the player HUD now do so. They will now also behave accordingly when over test (Altered casting etc. No changes were made to rod dynamics only to the accuracy of the system) This change will be most apparent in some picker and Ultra light rigs. Some players aware of the ability to rig with high Over Test rigs used this as a means to use some rods in a manner that was not consistent with their intended methodology. This update has fixed this oversight and these rods now will properly register an Over Test rig and make the rod behave accordingly. How floats affect Terminal Tackle Test Weight Totals Float weight In all statistical information given about a float one will find a weight listed in grams. For instance the Silver Fish Total Cast 932-140 Waggler Float lists: Type: Waggler Weight 14g Glowing: Yes The 14 gram Weight listed is NOT THE WEIGHT OF THE FLOAT itself but is instead the AMOUNT OF WEIGHT THE FLOAT CAN SUPPORT.

  10. I usually set up some groundbait and bottom rods, then use my spinning rod casting out past the baited area and retrieving through it

    Shops stock only gear appropriate to the map level and fish population / species and fishing style focus (spinning float etc.) of that map. Therefore some item are not stocked in some maps and so will always show as out of stock on that map..
