Plans for 0.28.0
#1
0
Started working on v0.28.0 last night, and here are my plans so far.  Firstly, I have implemented private messaging between commonwealth colonies.  There is a bit more to do on it to make it better, but the basic functionality is done.

Secondly, on all versions except for web, you will be able to turn game file compression off in the statistics screen, on a per-colony basis.  This will make saving files pretty much instant, VS the the slow compression time that happens now.  If you turn off compression though, you will not be able to use the cloud save or sync between devices.  Also, you will not be able to turn it off for the Web version, since web browsers typically do not provide that much internal storage space for a single web app.

Next, I am going to be adding a way to let players "visit" other colonies.  This will only work with players who are using cloud sync.  They will be able to post a share URI for their colony that the game will be able to open, allowing other people to view their colonies in a read-only state.

Beyond that there will be the usual bug fixes and a few new buildings thrown in for good measure.

i DO UNDERSTAND THAT CHROME (( OR BROWSERS )) HAVE LIMITED STORAGE .
(( ran into the Chrome is out of storage a few times now )) And when it happens if you ahvent saved or backed up the file in a wile you can louse progress .
But saving once every two hours is more then enough to be sure it does not happen .
Ok on with my reply . So (9 maybe the compression has something to do with limite space ?
if this is the problem why cant you jsut have the game (( when ever it saves auto of otehrwise save right to downloads folder ? this would save the space on browsers . and also give us a auto backup as teh file would Alreday excist in our downloads .Pluse it would update that file any time you save meaning less lost progress .
of corse i dont klnow the works so maybe this idea wont work ?

Great news.

I would like to encourage you to reconsider disabling uncompressed saving for web users, however.

It may be that "most browsers do not provide that much internal storage for a single app", but most instances can. Approximately 3/4 of all browser page views worldwide now come from a browser using chrome's Blink engine (All versions of Chrome, Opera and the bulk of the remaining 1.4%).
Blink supports a quota of up to 6% of the user's hard drive in persistent storage. If a user only has 20GB free on their hard drive, which is unlikely, 75% of browsers support persistent storage from a single site of 1.2GB. My save files are approximately 5MB compressed. Assuming a very generous compression ratio of 95%, we get a 100MB save file for a large map that is completely, efficiently, filled. This is probably at least the 95% percentile for save file size. It is reasonable to conclude that at least 71.25% of people (0.75*0.95) using the web version, therefore, could store their save files uncompressed without encountering an issue, other than an additional storage request which chrome requires after 50MB. We can add to this further because Firefox supports up to 10% of available storage space, we get a very conservative estimate of (0.95*(0.75+0.154))~ 86% of web version users able to store their save file uncompressed. Perhaps you could provide a warning to the tune of "Warning: Only recommended for Chrome and Firefox users. You may encounter issues using this option on other browsers or if you do not accept the 'Increased storage request' dialog."

I made no calculations, but I'm pretty sure that more than 86% of web version users have no issue with compression during the saving.
Only a very small portion of users have a very big colony and trouble with compression.

Bastecklein should be able to add some little script to monitor the frame rate of players during the saving to see how big the issue is.

@Brui Usually, when your click your Commonwealth Capital (Often your main Colony) you will see all Colonies which are part of your Commonwealth. They are indicated with Yellow lines, connecting them with your Commonwealth Capital.
avatar
@Redsamuri: I would say, Check Statistics and go to the Rescources Section. Then check your Aluminium and you will see the amount of Inflow/Outflow. There you can also see from what you earn your Inflow of Aluminium, and what is using Aluminium/ Creating an Outflow of Aluminium. I Hope this helps!
avatar
@BestColony11: Maybe if you already purchased Premium and activated it? I Don't recall the request for .AMK File activation since i purchased Premium.
avatar
The other one is that you do not have the Rescources. I also could not find the Megabot once it's Tech was rescearched. But when i imported some Aluminium, a rescource needed for Megabot Construction, it did appear in my Small Vehicle Factory. You can import/export rescources in the Black Market Bazaar. I hope this helps.
avatar
@Llama This can be the cause of tho things, as far as i know. One is that you did not rescearch all necesary Technologies.
avatar
I have done everything that is required to get the Megabot but I still cant build it (its not in my vechile factory)
avatar
@Redsamuri Do you have a sweetener factory?
avatar
why Windows Store version dosent ask for .amk file when i remove ads.

hi i just registered

I have Aluminum Genearator but still some thing in the game is draining my Aluminum. What's going on I don't have urainium. Enrichment. Going
avatar
@Brui There are certain technologies you have to unlock, forgot which, to unlock the capitols. And you need to Capitol to be able to send gifts to other colonies in your Commonwealth
avatar
how do i send gifts wuthout consulate or capitol? And how do I construct them if i am already independent and want to help the colonies under my charter?
avatar
nah it's not because of the map, it freezes at the very first loading screen
avatar
I need character code so i can combine with my diplomacy
avatar
how do i see the world under my charter in the new android version?
avatar
Loads for me, maybe try a different map sometimes they get corrupted.

anyone having the same issue?
