  98. allow fishing in areas of map that appear to be open but or inaccessible, or add visible obstacles to show that area cannot be traversed by player;
  99. Add small reward to weekly regional record holders for each fish, maybe gold bait;
  100. double the value of gold baits e.g. 60 rhino beetle larva for 1.50 gold;

  103. add periodic sales to in-game store (for gold and silver stuff);
  104. a reason to release the tiniest of fish;
  105. fish jumping on line with chance to throw hook; more realistic fish fight with jumps and less fish stamina especially for asp and salmon/trout
  106. 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?);

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

  119. A new rate (price) for the ingame drinks;
  120. Players should be able to use corks on the bottles when making homemade wine;
  121. Ability to extend boat tickets;
  122. Add a pricelist at the fishmongers at every lake showing the price/kg.;
  123. Better accuracy with the landing net so you aren't chasing the fish in circles;
  124. 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;
  125. Implement a fish encyclopedia, it starts out empty and when you catch a fish, it registers and gives more usefull 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;

  126. 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 usefull;

  127. 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.

  128. Add ability to make own permanent boats/yachts. So in later time if you add larger/deeper zones with only own made boats/yachts. On yachts a large deck for feeder rods and floats. 

    Starting from rowboats and ending with large deck yachts where you are able to use all three rods/smoke fish.

  129. Add maps that are ONLY for made boats/yachts without boat rental - so anyone who doesnt have own boat can fish only from shore.  

  130. 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;

  131. I suggest a ballancing on the harvesting mechanics, decrease the energy cost and increase the energy bar refilling;

  132. Add guild system where you can lvl up guild with exp from fishing and special guild store to buy some equipment for better exp for example and guild competitions to make game more competitive for those who wanna play it in that way;

  133. 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;

  134. Add a place to sit down for your character;

  135. Decrease wear on gear and decrease chance of breaking gear;

  136. Add a 1-5 star rating that goes up and down in real time, depending on how good your jig stepping or stopping and going;

  137. Add auto pilot for boats;

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

  139. Add effects to boat(like waves);

  140. The tip of match rods should be in the water, to make sink the slack line under the surface of water (in order to reduce effects of the wind);

  19. 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;
