1.8 Minor Release

Postby e_i_pi » Wed Feb 24, 2016 6:49 pm

v1.8 Minor Release
Version: 1.8.0
Release Date: 20160224
Some nice improvements this release, hope you enjoy them...

You can now find the annexation cost for a territory through the information popup, and I have also reduced the annexation cost for territories that cross more than one zone (they were way too high before).

I have also added in an Actions info popup, you'll find that on the right hand side of the game page via an icon that looks a little like this:

Furthermore, the game browser now looks a lot different, should load much quicker, and be far easier to navigate. There are four main buttons: Join Game, Create Game, My Games, and Active Games. The view defaults to My Games, unless you have no active (non-eliminated) games, then it defaults to Join Game.

There have also been changes to the layout in preparation for mobile readiness, which is being worked on in the 1.9 release. If you're on a mobile, you'll notice that the home page and scoreboard render a lot nicer - we're still working on the game browser and game page, you'll have to wait until next release for those.

Any bugs or issues, post in the forums and I'll get to work on them. Enjoy!
