Blackwood Map, NO FISH!

Recommended Posts

Hey Devs, you might want to recook the map a bit.  At the starting area, there are ZERO fish in the sea.  Turtles, check, lots of dead elephants in the water, check...but zero fish to kill at all.....kinda important as a source of vitamin D.

one of the islands u cant even sail a boat away from the beach , a huge swathe of area is too shallow had to swim about for ages to find a deep enough area that was at least 200 meters out , great map 😕  sotd not attacking or chasing , might not have sailed enough yet no flotsams , no wrecks ,

Also finding a complete lack of fish in my starting area. Big long stretch of beach, go for a swim. No fish to be seen anywhere.

border of the grid stops well short of what is shown on the map , sotd spawning stuck behind the barriers ,is this because the barrier doesnt extend to map edge  and therefore leaves too much space for them to spawn and then being a single grid they have noone where to go , random trees floating above the ocean ,  still no flotsams ,or wrecks

Any further info on this topic?  We've been running a dedi for 3 days now and are living off the few small catfish that spawn in the swamp on Freeport.  We've checked the entire Western edge of the island and there are no fish nor mantas in the ocean anywhere.  We are not at a point yet where we can get a ship and sail out to other islands to look for fish.

This is a significant issue since until one advances into cooking fish is the only source of vitamin D besides milk, and expecting everyone to tame a cow and take the needed skill to craft a bucket before the deficiency becomes a problem is a bit of a stretch.

It's something we are looking into. Blackwood is pretty large, we had to make some technical changes to support the size of the map and this might be the reason we're not seeing as many spawns, not just due to the amount of space available but some tech reasons. If you're running on a non-dedi, you may have to wait a while in certain areas for all the spawners to appear (i.e fresh water sources around land masses).

I'm seeing no fish on single player along coastal beaches after at least an hour or two of total gameplay if not a bit more.

We have had a few catfish spawn in the swamps on Freeport and they are sustaining the 4 of us for now. Nothing at all in the ocean around the island, dedi has been running for 2 days now.  Hopefully we'll get a sloop built tonight and can check out the shores around another island and will report back.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.

Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a night.

Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

A) Why are you shouting?

B) Punctuation is your friend and helps others follow what you're saying.

Though, there is lot of fishes, depends on area.
Wait before they spawn before "THERE IS NO FISH AT ALL"
Same as shark and shipwreak

Even is there is definitly a bug as Jat explained
There is definitly fishes/shark/manta on the map

On the island i'm on at the moment there is no fish at all,I've fished for ages and nothing.Not even the bubbling sound you get when they are near. But there were tuna in a pond at the blackwood freeport, and now the islands are close it's easy to get to.

Yeah, I hope they find a way to get more fish to spawn, with out an over spawned server load 😛  it is a task on starter areas, and since there are many that have no or very few fish.. its rough.  I will try fishing net 🙂  Nope island has many many fish.. and mermaids and sharks and crabs  to go along with them  fish. lol.
