Hi architects, the last devblog was uploaded quite a long time ago. So we wanted to let you know what are we working on and what to expect in the future. So update 1.2 was quite a big deal because of all the parts we have added and the bitcoin system. It might not seem like updates like 1.22, 1.23, 1.24 are so important but actually they are more important than you think. Update 1.23 took at least 2-4 weeks to develop and though you don’t see any new features it was necessary for us because it allows us to add more things to the game. Some people were complaining that the game is too laggy, using too much battery and some people were unable to launch the game entirely. When we started adding new features it became even bigger problem because now even more people were unable to play the game. So we decided that fixing the game is the thing we need to do before working on anything else. The main problem seemed to be the RAM usage, this is how it looked before:
This is a HUGE improvement and it took a lot of effort and research to pull this off but it was worth it. Some people that were unable to play the game previously are now able to play the game and the load times are considerably faster. Though this doesn’t mean that the game will work for everyone, there are other things that could be causing problems. The best thing is that now we can focus on working on update 1.3 and adding new features. While this optimisation work has been happening our artists were already working on update 1.3, but now we are going full throttle towards 1.3 release. We plan to add a lot of things and it will be very difficult to fit everything that we plan in this update but I think that we will be able to pull it off. We won’t spoil anything yet but follow our social medias because we will post some updates on our progress in the upcoming weeks. We can’t predict the release date yet, let’s just say that 1.3 will be released in 2017 🙂 .
