Community update: week 41 & 42

Hello there, dear Community!

Another two weeks have passed, which means that it’s time for us to give you another community update. Let’s start without further ado…

Upcoming new event

Those of you who are following our beta forums keenly may have already spotted our announcement for a new upcoming event that is currently being tested on our public beta servers.

Others may have spotted a teaser on our Facebook pages.

If you are one of these people who don’t enjoy spoilers, you will have to be very brave now until we will officially reveal what we have been working on these past weeks with the changelog for 2.150. We hope you don’t mind the following two words, though: Pandora’s Box!

Sorry, couldn’t hold back any longer! 😉

Forum layout

The internal tests of our forum layout, which is currently active for Administrators on the beta forums, are going well and we were already able to make some further improvements.

The code changes are currently being reviewed and additional graphics produced. If everything goes according to schedule, you should be able to experience the new layout on the beta forums for yourselves latest by the end of next week.

v2.149

The update to browser version 2.149 took place this week and brought the deactivation of morale on islands with active World Wonders to all live worlds.

The mobile version 2.149 was skipped as we just released 2.148 in the stores and had mostly backend-related changes in this sprint, which become effective for mobile automatically after the respective browser update.

Apart from the ongoing technical rework of the command overview, we worked on further early game improvements and adjusted the cooldown indicator for the farming village overview according to your feedback, to restore functionality and readability of information in this overview.

Next version preview

The sprint work for version 2.150 will be completed this week. As mentioned for the previous version, we are currently focusing on a code refactoring for the command menu overview as we encountered several errors related to this feature recently.

Furthermore this version contains some final adjustments for our upcoming new event, Pandora’s Box, and a change for the descriptive icons for transport ships, reflecting that transport ships may act as naval units, but also have a very specific role to fulfil as a transport unit.

Due to a bank holiday in Germany, the current update schedule for v2.150 is as follows:

Wednesday, November 1st (morning-noon CET): NL, SE and SK market
Wednesday, November 1st (noon-afternoon CET): international roll-out
