Add pop up boilies / Add a few more 8mm sized boilies of the existing ones

Fishing with floating bait, like bread or floating pet food

Introduce the following baits: Dragonfly, Wax Worms, Scuds, Freshwater Shrimp, Grass Shrimp

Crabbing (drop some crab pots around using fish meat)

Harvesting fish pieces from fish gives a chance of randomly getting Fish Roe ( Even from the first level of harvest skill that allows fish pieces)

Option to make Rotten fish pieces

Decide yourself what to put in your feeder. For example, mix groundbait with maggots

Add particle baits for carp fishing

Increase the size of bait fish, it`s too hard now to catch a decent amount without them getting bad

Change the min/max weight for Gudgeon Baitfish, every baitfish has at least 50g between the min and max weight but the gudgeon only has 20 (from 40g to 60g)

Allow the purchase of all baits in the shop with silver, with the baits previously only available for gold having a very steep price.

Add Big pike specific lures like huge spinnerbaits and big prerigged soft plastics



Groundbaits - This section contains suggestions about groundbaits and crafting them


Please get rid of the ground bait making fails.Contributing nothing to your skill is penalty enough

Make ingredient selection on GB or bait screen to stick with the last choices you made

Combine ground bait of the same make and quality to a single quantity, instead of portions of 20 pieces

Automatically fill the item selection for crafting, unless there is more than one option to select GB

Reduce the cost of ingredients for making ground bait

Able to sell ground bait at the stores

Add possibility to save your GB recipes. For example first time you do custom bait and name it, it comes an option to save that recipe. Later, if you want to make same GB, you just choose one of your saved recipes and all the ingredients fills automatically

Make it so that when you’re making ground bait you need at least 1 base 1 additive and one attractant to make ground bait

Auto loading for ground bait with feeders and pva sticks just like regular bait

Add timers to show expiration of groundbait on latest rod thrown

Make it so we can "drift fish" in a boat at Sura. We should be able to start up at the top of the map and turn off our engine and just drift down the river and fish without hitting the bank constantly. The current should keep us in the middle of the river or at least off the bank

Add effects to boat(like waves)

Electric motor for trolling

have fish stamina relate to temperature (the colder it is the more lethargic the fish are)

Make "green flagged" fish easier to catch by them not being as affected by attractiveness as trophies

Better accuracy with the landing net so you aren't chasing the fish in circles

I would like to suggest increasing the chances of getting a trophy such as perch, sichel, herrings, chub, vendace, ripus, grayling and mussels ect. Especially for a spin fisherman with 100% in spin fishing. Basically all of the ''smaller'' species that can be caught with a lure should have an significant increase at the chance for a trophy while spin fishing, with all char species excluded due to their good exp/silver gains

Decrease wear on gear and decrease chance of breaking gear

Add on the lake info list fish species, what size they can get too in that lake and list of baits

Add something to prevent you from being teleported when your boat licence runs out even when you don't have more tickets in the backpack

show a smaller version of when trolling or show the inner circle of compass on map

Adjust the length of Beluga to conform to the weight

Change migration so that spots do not completely die out, but simply run low

Reduce the wear on gear

Have 1 section for all water bodies with subtopics for each fish

Make extra happy hour for premium players permanent

Add wind direction and speeds to forecast, also show weather of week before

View cooking recipes without fire lit

Bridges at Akhtuba

Lower gold cost, lower bite rate of small fish on gold bait/ gold needs rebalance ( way too expensive in my opinion to justify price)

Add small reward to weekly regional record holders for each fish, maybe gold bait

double the value of gold baits e.g. 60 rhino beetle larva for 1.50 gold

add periodic sales to in-game store (for gold and silver stuff)

a reason to release the tiniest of fish

rebalance food mechanics as player-crafted foods have little or no benefit for their price ( if a potato + tea can fill a player up just as well as a 100$ caviar, why make the caviar?)

prevent players from digging worms in certain areas such as on docks and boats (makes sense) and around the food carts (to prevent bots)

a bit or broken line removes only the amount of line that was out at the time of cutting

Start happy hour upon first catch instead of log in

Choice between bonus silver or experience for happy hour

Have the listing in store main section show weight and price for the whole reel series

Add separate volume control for reel only

a reason to fish the swampy puddle at cottage pond (perhaps stock with crayfish and frog)

Lets have one notification when the week ends about winners of leaderboard, like one single notification to tell us it's done and in the winners  table

A new rate (price) for the ingame drinks

Players should be able to use corks on the bottles when making homemade wine

Add a pricelist at the fishmongers at every lake showing the price/kg

Implement a fish encyclopedia, it starts out empty and when you catch a fish, it registers and gives more useful information about the fish to help players find it (where it likes to be, what baits it prefers, weather conditions, temperature and etc.). Similar to a players catch statistics, but with more info

When you eat or drink, display some info about how it will affect the player. How much hunger/comfort it will satisfy, will it restore energy, will it decrease health. How long will the comfort stay increased, how fast will your hunger decrease after eating a certain food item. Also, putting some numbers next to the status bars and how are they being currently affected (weather,fighting a fish) would be really useful

Add a new type of ultra rare trophy called the "secret" fish. Basically it could be very rare hybrid of two species or simply a type of fish that should not appear in certain water body but somehow got there. Very hard to catch and ultra rare - not a huge monster, but small that can give lots of XP or silver reward

Add fish/craw traps that add an extra bonus silver per day. Traps that you can use when you go offline and should work like normal fishing(with hotspots or just dead zone)  So make it skill or level based too - where with skill increase you can use larger traps and to make more interesting make it 24hr and fish are all rotten so you should have to check them daily.  Make them with less chance for rare/trophy fish and custom made bait for those traps for increased chance

I suggest a balancing on the harvesting mechanics, decrease the energy cost and increase the energy bar refilling

Make cafe orders repeatable but with diminishing returns, say loose 25% of the price each time you turn in. this will give more incentive to fish certain species to fill the orders. also helps the lower level player base gain silver to better their gear

Add a place to sit down for your character

Add bonus exp for NOT keeping the small fish and release it like in real life

make the time in game pass slower, The way RF4 works is - lots of fiddling with equipment, lots of looking for new fishing spots, lots of trial and error, very long fish fights - as it suppose to be! So why time passes so fast?

suggestion for Comps: Make it so you can select rigs/rods without having to select a type of fishing (for example.... Choose Baitfish , but not type of fishing so people can use, Float or Bottom)

Change striking the fish from ctrl + RMB to one key, for instance RMB

Add more benefits for Premium: free tackle repairs, and a little gold per Premium 'membership' bought, free repairs

Roadmap to future of the game / Game development road map so players know what part of the game devs are working on

Add a fish of the day to the cafe, making that fish worth extra silver for that day.

Add a tackle truck to Bear Lake with a limited amount of items for sale that changes at random intervals.

Add a seaplane cafe to Bear Lake that lands periodically with cafe orders to be filled.

Make shovel and scoop have an infinite stock amount on all maps.

Maybe a competition host should get the ability to make levels within levels. For example: General comp: level 15 - 50 -Prices for 15-22, Prices for 22-28, Prices for 28+

Make medium lvl comps 13-23 lvl not only till lvl 22 as it is now

Real-time in-game pass not like now 1h/1d in game; atm we tend to have bigger and bigger maps, harder and harder fights, that makes the target of certain species that bites on only a certain time, really hard and stressfull, sometimes the fish spot is at I9, you go there to fish for only 2-3h ingame and has to go back to fish somewhere else, sometimes isn't even worth to spend the time travelling there cuz it's too late already... I think we could make the ingame day last longer, 2h IRL, not sure about how long, but it's really painfull. Obviously there's the point that you will have to wait more to fish for that specie, but, it gives you more time to plan and fight the other fish you're targeting while wait the correct time

A better way of scrolling down to the items we want to send to another player as the scroll item only shows when you mouse the mouse wheel up and down and it's too small / Also the ability to select multiple items to send to players

First of all I want to say I am sorry if this is not the right place to post suggestions. 
Second of all here are couple suggestions: 
1. Having a backup server that in case of main server going down or being DDOS as it was these few days, can kick in while the main server will be fixed or DDOS repelled. 
2. Offline patch with good anti cheat solution + offline logs with AES 256 Encryption that will get uploaded once server is back on so progress is not lost even in case of server down or DDOS attacks or any other issues that can occur. 
Thank you.

BAHAHAHHAHA.... Yeah, sure ya do pal. Sure ya do. Do you seriously expect us to believe rf4 "has a plan" AKA: Solution. The last patch wasn't a fix, it was merely rf4 fishing for answers, rf4 basically says this in the patch notes. HOW does a company screw something up so badly that they themselves CANNOT fix their own screw up? I mean that takes some serious skill. I've defended rf4 MANY MANY TIMES, with multiple premium accounts to my name, But at this point, Like MANY others within the community, we're all about to tell ya to take a flying leap. I've plenty of reason to be upset at this point, so deal with it.

We understand your frustrations Badfish.  We are not asking you not to be upset.  We are all players just like you and want to see problems resolved just like you do.  The problems have gotten noticeably better and should continue to get better as we keep working to resolve the issues.

hey, i had an idea run through my mind last night,  i am a big member of the marbles on stream community. There they have options for streamers to purchase tournament kits. It a cool idea i wanted to bring up, its a way for the community to better know the streamers who may not be seen otherwise. some ideas on what it would include may be a one or 2 hour tournament, shout out in game, maybe have different tier packages for different prizes wither it be a gold premium package or a gear package regardless the streamer would pay for these packs and then he would use them to create content for his/her channel and get their name out in the community

Hope I didn't miss it in the list above but it would be nice to have more types and more colors of wacky worms.

The lake completions I think are a great idea but could have alot more impact. Keep first time completion as a medal which most will want to accomplish but then add after you gain the medal they reset and thereafter you receive a large silver reward for further completions. A reward worthy to be comparable to just sitting on the hotspot of the week. I believe it would add much needed depth to the game.

I would like to suggest you completely overhaul the float fishing section. One float is currently viable and that is the standard 4 grm night float which I use in the daytime as it is the only float that can be seen . Poor colour choice and brightness means all the floats are almost impossible to pick out against the backdrop and tones of the water. Black floats are needed for overcast and rainy days where the majority of the water has a mirror like surface. Pastel colours are very difficult to pick out. Also there isn't 1 single river float in the game. balsa top with long metal insert in the bottom of the float to add buoyancy with either an eye fitted near the top of the float for the line to pass through and to pass through 2 separate rubber slide on connectors that fit on the steel rod insert in the bottom section of the float. Known as top /bottom fishing. gives total control of the float as it passes down the current. You cannot fish bottom end only rigs on fast moving water the rig will just be pulled under by the current and the float will sit awkwardly in the water.

           Wagglers are just another name for a float that can be cast at distance and because of their longer depth are perfect for lakes and slow moving canals. 12-18 inches normally made of one piece peacock quill or balsa some are stepped as in they taper towards the tip. Only the last inch ,2 max should be visible above the water not the current 2 foot . Nobody on earth would fish like that. Think of a drinking straw you get in one of the cinema mega drinks that's the size of a standard waggler. Wagglers are for the most part bottom only method as in the line runs through a connector at the bottom of the float but they can also be made to top and bottom with a rubber placed over the top inch of the float so as to make it a top/bottom method . This is ideal for deeper fast flowing water. But the colours of the current floats need to be much brighter and deeper in colour as it is too difficult to see them at any distance as they blend in to the scenery or go missing in the background. 

        Please ,please add a catapult to the game for loose feeding this is an integral part of fishing . I cannot stress this point enough .. Loose feeding attracts fish and keeps the fish already in your catch area interested and will if done correctly keep them there for the duration of your stay. any keyboard key can be adopted for this. i.e. any key not currently used in game. When pressed a circle appears on the water and using the mouse to direct the circle and the wheel or +/_ buttons to select the size of the area the bait will land in L/click the mouse and the loose feed will go to the hi-lighted area on the water .


Thanks 😉

Credit for this suggestion goes to user woodingot#0539 on the official Discord server.

This suggestion is for the trade system: add a simple checkbox or button to confirm a trade. This avoids the possibility of people stealing items or trades not being what was agreed upon beforehand. See this screenshot of Warframe for an example. Without both players ticking the "READY TO TRADE" box, the trade will not happen. Any changes made to the items either player is trading automatically unticks the box. Once both players have checked the box, an additional button comes up to complete the trade. It's nearly foolproof. Complaints are very rare in proportion to the amount of trading done everyday.

Please add an option to turn off "reality reaction to booze" it makes me sick and turns my stomach upside down, making me wanna close the game instantly. There must be something to figure out to prevent people from abusing the alcohol in the game. The current feature literally sucks.

Add a delete account option and vacation mode option.  Vacation mode for players who want take and extended break (7-14 days minimum) but preserve premium time purchased.  


Not sure which I would choose right now given my aggravation with this game, and the sunk cost fallacy that keeps me mindlessly catching trash fish...
