We’ve recently finished development of the next version of the iOS app and want to share what is coming while the app goes through approval @ Apple.
In this update we’ve taken on a lot of feedback from players and made several improvements/changes, as well as implementing new features and functionality.
Mails, Reports and Village information
The mails screen now has the same functionality as the desktop version of the game and shows your conversation partner’s read status for mails. The screen has also been optimised to show longer mail subjects.
The reports screen has also been optimised so you can always see the village involved in a report.
Lastly, after introducing the new top bar we received feedback about players missing the ability to see the full amount of resources and warehouse capability. You can now tap on any of the resource displays in the top bar to show a detailed view with all of this information.
New app functionality: Village Headquarters and Quests
We’ve now implemented the village HQ and quest system directly into the app for better speed and responsiveness. If the quests system is active on your world, you’ll be able to access quests from the bottom bar, which also shows the number of open quests and indicates if you’ve made any progress in a quest.
There’s not much more to say about the HQ, except that since all the graphics are loaded directly from the app it should be much faster.
The biggest change is to the map graphics, where we’ve recreated everything from scratch in much higher detail. Though we know this is a big change (the map graphics have looked the same for many years) we hope players will quickly get used to the new details.
We hope you enjoy this update.
