    • Keep your bug report short and factual.
    • There is no need to submit crash logs. Crash data we require is automatically logged.

    Any chance that sort of message can be added - similar to how when someone levels up a skill?

    If people nearby can see what kind of fish others are catching, or that others nearby are fishing - that might make them want to participate, or talk about it, etc?

    As long as forced multiplayer is on us, please do not do this. The last thing I need is to be constantly spammed by people fishing near my property.

    I think within a party, it might make sense. Outside of that, not so much.

    I was thinking include it in whatever chat filter stops the skill level advancement message.

    Now that I understand how "trophy" fish work, maybe only do this for trophy fish?

    That could work - and also for monsters that get fished up in the future ..?
