Various Apps & Extensions?

Some of you might have noticed the line:

*Includes secret encrypted communication that will enable integration with different Fish Hunt Apps and extensions.

That's been associated with the new [Extended Edition] rods....

About these new features 

I thought I would go into a bit more detail about what that means and why players should definitely consider switching up to the new extended rods for their future fishing enjoyment.

1) Performance Improvement

Firstly, I'd like to explain the reason for the [Extended] edition in the first place. When we released Fish Hunt all of 3 years ago we never imagined it would grow to be as popular as it is today. The thought never crossed our minds that we would need certain features and we were not aware of some of the long-term technical issues that would be locked-in to the system's architechture.

The new extended edition rods are our solution to all these problems. They are much more than just a fun coloring upgrade. If you look 'under the hood' you'd see a lot of performance improvements.

2) Extention Application Programming Interface (API)

To me this is something major. Essentially the rods now communicate securely with future 'unknown' devices that we will plan to release. We'll be able to develop all sorts of exciting extensions such as:

* local fishing contests

* local prize givers

 * and who knows what we'll be able to come up with for the enjoyment of fishers...

The new extended edition turns Fish Hunt into an operating system that can be endlessly extended and added to in order to improve the experience and enable rapid growth long into the future....

We may even consider opening up some parts of this API to land owners and/or players so they can script their own devices, but this will need considerable research and planning to prevent abuse that we haven't completed yet. Therefore we can make no promises yet in this area.

Anyway I hope that has helped inform everyone about this mysterious new feature!!

Stop reading this blog and get fishing!!

Ok may I ask why the upgrade differ so much in price for those who has the Fish Hunt PRO and Magic Fishing Rod. Thosed who have invested a lot of money need to pay 3490 L$ for the update and those with pro Rod 500 linden for the same upgrade?? How are you explaining this.

The pro rod gives less experience per cast than the magic rods. Prices of everything on lower level rods are naturally lower to fit the budget of those who own them. There are also more pro rods about, so the cost of implementing the upgrade can be spread among more people.

That does not make sense at all I wish I had never spend money on a magic rod then. Same update should be priced the same we do not get any extra for those extra 3 k spend. When it comes down to it if you buy a magic rod its the same as saying you wish to spend more money for every update in the future who you will get with the other ords but way much more cheeper.

This is not an update, it is an upgrade.

Updates are there to fix problems and are free, and will always be free.

Upgrades introduce new functionality that was not there before. Pricing for higher value items is innevitably higher. Fishers can decide what items they wish to upgrade or not. If they choose to use existing rods they can continue to fish as before without any issues.

We very much appreciate our loyal fishers and the upgrades are being implemented so we can introduce more fun things that we wouldn't have been able to otherwise long into the future.
