CHANGELOG (what to expect)

Postby Drassen » 16 Feb 2015, 20:26

Some things will be different in this version, for example: no pro-mode, arms of users extend on takeover, new login system, etc. These are not bugs. We have chosen to make these changes for reasons ;)

And as we have said before:
DO NOT REPORT FUNCTIONALITY THAT YOU WANT OR MISS. Only report bugs ;)

List of changes:

v0.9.9.0
1. New Google Maps API
  1. Map can be rotated. Put two fingers on screen and turn to rotate. Press the compass symbol to reset.
  2. Map can be tilted to give a 3D impression. Drag with two fingers up/down to tilt/untilt.
  3. Maps are now cached locally. This will heavily reduce data traffic as they are only loaded once. This also means you can ”pre-load” maps before traveling to other countries or areas with bad cell phone reception – just zoom in on the areas when at home in your own wifi network. The “cost” is that the cached maps will, over time, take up significant space on your storage if you turf travel a lot. Go to Settings, Apps, Turf and clear cache if needed.
  4. Overall better map performance (zoom/pan).
2. New login procedure.
This will simplify changing phones or platforms for users.

3. Takeover indication.
Your Turf avatar now graphically extends arms on take-overs.

4. New layout on chat and toplists.
Slide sideways to move between them.

5. Misc modifications
  1. No popup when turning GPS on/off.
  2. Zones are drawn sharper
  3. Easier to see blocked zones
  4. New graphics for Take Over Indicator.
  5. Audible Taking Zone/Zone taken for revisits
  6. GPS bonus if first take is a revisit
  7. Zone Lost sound removed at start up
  8. Audible Taking Zone when waiting in a blocked zone and block time runs out
  9. Highlighted zones become green when taken
  10. Number of Take Overs/Unique on support menu are updated during gameplay. No need to restart app.
  11. PPH in the user dialogue for turfers updated as the owner takes/loses zones. No need to restart app
  12. Map of own unique zones are updated in real time as new unique zones are taken
  13. Settings, Location is opened if you turn on GPS in Turf but has GPS turned off in settings
  14. App will correctly handle devices lacking Google Play Services
6. Pro mode has been decommissioned.
With 1c above this is no longer needed, the development effort to maintain has also been significant.

7. On-line list has been decommissioned.
Not possible to maintain list and adequate performance with so many active turfers.

8. Bug fixes.
  1. "Wrong font" issues on Lollipop fixed.
  2. Take Over Indicator always visible during take over, even if entering zone with screen off.
9. Known issues.
  1. App does not yet work well with events. Use 0.9.7.1.
  2. If you have enabled "Show Notification Bar" in the app's settings, the notification bar will be temporary hidden when you view chat and toplists.

List of changes for v0.9.9.2
  • Event functionality is now reimplemented, but is raw and not tested that much yet. Looks promising!
  • Some turfers noticed a new medal on the home page yesterday! Very mysterious and a little bit exciting and scary, too :-) You are now able to see if a zone is of the correct type/attribute. Holy zones, or a Sanctuary...
  • Please take a look at those zones not placed on land...

3. Takeover indication.

this doesnt seem to work very well, i see only the indication of arms out first when the zone appears to be taken and u see zone as blocked on random people that i watch ?

Är betatestningen avslutad? Hörde det men isf skulle ni väl skrivit det här.
Är den senaste och den som nu är släppt på Google Play samma version? Om inte, sparar den versionen som finns på Play kartorna?

The beta testing are finished for now, yes. You're right that it could have been clarified here, it was announced at turfgame.com. The latest version in Google Play is version 1.0.1 so there are changes from the latest supporter beta and yes, that version will cache the maps.
