Fish traps always empty

I really don’t know what the trouble maker is. I think some of my traps have broken without me logging out of single player. But I could be remembering incorrectly. I don’t know anymore… I should stop thinking about it and just wait for patch notes saying it’s fixed.

yeah, i’m pretty much at the same spot :slight_smile:tired of testing these traps.
Wait and see then…

Dedicated server, Fish traps work until server reboots, then have to place new traps. both fish and shellfish traps forget how to work after server reboot.

I can confirm this bug. fish traps work for the first few hours… then they are always empty.

if the trap isnt deep, NO fish after initial looting

I have two fish traps in shallow water (connected to river), about half of the traps is above the water surface, and they catch fish all the time. (single player)

I have caught countless fish without the trap being in water at all. It allowed me to place them in the sand next to the water (you can even drink water through the sand)… So depth is definitely irrelevant.

Regardless of where I place the traps or how deep they are, they always break now. Sometimes they don’t even start working.

Hi guys i know im a little late for this discussion but i got some info you might find interesting, to say the leasts. Im suffering the same proplem as you guys BUT. My friends that im playing with doesnt have the proplem. To add to that information we are all experiencing proplems with wheel of pain smelter etc pausing.

if your friends have placed their traps after the server restart and you before, this is the reason why they get fish and you not.
i bet they will find empty traps soon enough (after the server restart) or they are simply placing new ones after each server restart which is the only solution i’m aware of right now.
PS: it’s never too late for a discussion :smiley:
wheel of pain pausing is sthing else, since it has always been this way when you play online: everytime the server restarts most wheels of pain will pause (especially the ones that are far from your character on the map. Same thing is going on with workstations that you have to switch on/off (bonfires, cauldrons, tannery,furnaces…etc) the blacksmith bench is one of the exceptions to this rule since it has no on/off button.


Fish traps and water wells/staues of refresh from mitra (and certainly,beehives too) will stop working after every server restart.There is nothing you can do we were able to find to prevent this issue from happening.

The only way to deal with it, is to replace the old ones by new ones after EVERY server restart.
