The achievement to do 100 Quests can take a really long time and be really hard, but it doesn’t have to be!
The game currently only gives you quests for fishes you do not have in your catalog yet. That means if you fished a lot already they get progressively harder and harder, asking you to catch fish like the Cave Shark and sometimes running out of quests to do altogether.
This has been patched by giving you an option to reset the catalog. Simply click on “Catalog” on the left side of the screen, and then on “Reset” in the bottom right corner. This will only affect the fish you have caught and cataloged, your levels, boats, rods and everything else stays the way it is.
Once you’ve reset your catalog the fishes will no longer be counted as already caught, and you get quests for them again. Additionally, the game seems to prioritize the quests for fishes that are easier.
So all you need to do is:
- Finish your current quest.
- Before taking a new quest, reset your catalog.
- Get easy quests like catching Cuddlefish over and over.
- Repeat until you get to 100 quests.
You can do this at any point in the game, as long as you can complete one more quest and reset before taking a new one, there’s no need to reset or start a new save!
How to Cheat
If this still is too much work…
…you are probably looking for a way to cheat.
- Alright, go to AppData/Local/Cat_Goes_Fishing/
There should be several files called “sdata1n”, “sdata2n” etc. for your different saves. If you have too many, you might want to start a new save and take the new file that popped up. Open it with Notepad and search for “counter5”
The number before the .000000 is the number of completed quests. Make a backup of the file, then exit the game, change the number to 50/100, save the document, restart, do one quest and the achievement pops up (but you should be ashamed of yourself).
