Update Version 1.3.1


Hey there, all fishermen. A new update version 1.3.1 is up.

Sorry everyone for our King Crab DLC being unstable for many. Here is an update which should fix many of these issues, plus we added a new feature called "Crew House" where you can store crew members not being used at different ports.

Storing a crew in the Crew House will cost you -50% monthly fee based on your crew members regular monthly fee. There will also be added travel expenses and time needed for your crew member to get to the mustering port, if they are located elsewhere.

This should make it easier for you to add your crew back to any of your boats when needed.

This update mainly consists of fixing crashes and major things you reported back to us. Thanks alot for your patience and feedback!

Changelog:
  • NEW FEATURE Crew house, now you can store crew at ports when not used
  • Fixed pickup indicator so it matches actual pickup distances
  • Fixed crash with payload
  • Updated languages
King Crab DLC
  • Balanced Selfy and Svalbard more
  • Fixed issue with disappearing pot when hauled with no crabs
  • Fixed issue with baiting pot on Selfy
  • Fixed issue with crash setting pots with Svalbard
  • Fixed issue with crew leveling down
  • Fixed issue with crash when setting pot on Selfy
  • Removed other fish quotas on Svalbard
We will continue with updates to ensure that the game runs and perform great for you all!
Stay tuned for more to come soon :)

Start with the little boat inherited from your grandfather, catch fish and earn money for upgrades as well as bigger and better boats.
