Welcome to our bi-weekly community update, lovely community people. Here are the most recent news:
Forum layout changes active on beta forums
The new forum layout has been activated on the beta forums and is now up for testing.
We’re looking forward to your feedback, especially on any bugs you may find, and will roll out this new design for all other language forums as soon as the final tests are concluded.
Pandora’s Box featured on InnoGames TV
Our game designer Bernard has recorded a short take on our upcoming event, Pandora’s Box, for InnoGames TV. In this clip he shows you video footage of the event and explain what it’s all about.
The update to browser version 2.150 took place this Wednesday, followed by the mobile release on Friday.
On browser side, we continued the refactoring of the command overview to make it perform better and fix several bugs that are directly connected to the command overview sometimes missing information. We are already looking forward to roll these changes out as soon as our internal tests confirm that the overall functionality is not impeded.
Furthermore, we implemented a new special unit icon for transport ships, which describes the special role these ships play in battle and fixed a lot of bugs related to Pandora’s Box that we could only find due to diligent bug reporting on our beta worlds. Thanks for your help in improving the game for everyone!
Next version preview
The development work for the sprint to version 2.151 is about to be finished today.
In this version we of course continued the work on the command overview but also looked into functional improvements for our players. First of all we honored a community request to improve how the farming village overview works. Before, when checking any of the timing options while the farming villages were on cooldown, the resource prediction would simply show +0 resources due to the cooldown. After the update, the preview will provide you with an estimate on how many resources could be gained with each timing option once the cooldown time has passed.
Furthermore we added a population reference to unit and unit effect tooltips in order to give more information about the population these units (will) use once they were recruited or generated through the effect.
The current update schedule for v2.151 is as follows:
Wednesday, November 14th: NL, SE and SK market
Wednesday, November 15th: international roll-out
