  • Pharo Thank you for your excellent feedback!

    Some of the bugs you've mentioned are being worked on as I write this and will soon be fixed during this beta period.

    The "Finish research NOW" button text is now translated.

    This is expected, as we haven't included translations for this yet. They will be added, latest in the final production release.

    I've also plenty of suggestion to improve the UI and the informations that can be display by the app.


    Should I open a thread or put it below?

    That sounds awesome. Feel free to open a new thread for this.

    Again, thanks for the detailed feedback to our new beta!

    • The Header is not set for a WW when it was not released.
    • In the Market building
      • Under `Commercial road`
        • Max quantity
          • The max quantity is based on the current resource in the village. So I can't create a road with 5k if I have not 5k in the warehouse
          • route commercial.jpg
        • Layout problem

    That sounds awesome. Feel free to open a new thread for this.

    I'll do this, but I need to make some explanation... Maybe tomorrow in the morning ;)



    Finally I've a security issue in the Lobby on desktop. Without your consent, I'll not explain it publicly. It's not a critical security issue but could be High priority I think.


    Thanks agains for your work and good luck to fix the app :)

    Again, If you need more informations or elements, please let me know.


    Best regards

  • 4) Non si riesce a vedere i report condivisi.


    5) La lista farm, quando ne hai tante le ultime non si riesce a vederle perchè coperte dalla finestra truppe. Bisogna cambiare pagina, ritornare e aprire la lista che ti interessa


    6) mi sarebbe piaciuto vedere chi nel regno sta subendo un attacco


    1) When there's a notification shown on the bell icon, if he opens the report from there, they dont's show and the notification icon disappears. He has to open them from the scroll icon at the bottom of the screen.


    2)Stats: you can only see top 10. Overview, Attacking, Defender, Villages and Heroes won't show. Same as in the Kingdoms section, nothing shows as in the screenshot provided.


    1618502533517.jpg


    3)In the marketplace it's impossible to get an instant delivery


    4) Player can't see shared reports


    5) When you have too many entries in your farm list, you are unable to see them all cos they end up being covered by troops' window. So you need to go back, reload and then open up the list you were interested in.


    6) It would have been a nice features to have, being able to see if someone in the kingdom is under attack

  • Here is a Report from a German player:

    - beim Verkaufen im Auktionshaus werde ich aus dem Spiel geworfen und komme zurück zum Startbildschirm wo ich mich erneut in mein Konto einloggen muss. Dies betraf bislang jedes Item welches ich verkaufen wollte.


    Gerätename: Samsung Galaxy S20 5G

    OS-Version: Android-Version 11

    Translation:


    - when selling in the auction house I get kicked out of the game and come back to the start screen where I have to log into my account again. This has affected every item I have tried to sell so far.


    Device name: Samsung Galaxy S20 5G

  • Dear Kingdoms admin and develloper,


    I've perform the update and see many things was corrected and I was using 1.8.8865 version and see different other errors.


    I see the Stats and Top 10 working. But I did not see my place if was not in the Top 10 :)

    top10 not display own place.jpg



    Also the search by Kingdoms name not work. The field says Pseudo and the auto-complete not work...

    kingdoms seach not correct.jpg


    I've found not a bug related to this version specificaly. This work in IOS but not in the android version.

    In the auction panel, the item object not appear. to display the object, I've to click on an auction to know the item name.

    It have to be before the quantity to simplify the UI.

    Auctions no object name.jpg

    On the action panel, I've encounter the same issue than Andy91_DE, some time the game close and get back to the lobby while selling an item. And the filter not work correctly. I've no screen and without item name, It's useless to have it... I think an investiguation in these panel is required...


    In messages, when I reply on my computer and open the conversation in my phone, the message is not display as `Send by me`

    erreur nom message pc et tel.jpg




    I have said in my first post: `I've plenty of idea to improve the UI`. Thanks to my work, I've not manage to get time to do it properly. I'll try to post it this evening.


    Thanks a lot to put these effort in the app and good luck to corrects these different bugs :)

  • Hi,


    some reports from a German player :):


    Huawei Mate 10 Pro

    Android 10

    Mahlzeit, bei den Räuberverstecken werden mir die Ressourcen nicht mehr angezeigt. Lgo

    Translation: It's not possible to see the resources of a robber hideout, when you click on the map on village details.



    When you want to start an attack or use trading routes, etc. the respective popup blocks the lower screen.

    Attacks -> After select the troops you have to click on Continue. So this is not that big problem. But if you want to create a trade route, you select first the resources but there is no continue button. You have to click again on the last resource you have selected or the slider overlap the Button to create the trade route.

  • Ciao Zaken anche con questo aggiornamento i report non si aprono.

    Poi sarebbe davvero top vedere chi nel regno è sotto attacco.

    Shared reports are still not visible.

    It would also be cool to be able to see who in your Kingdom is under attack.

  • Dear players,


    thanks to your feedback we keep improving and updating the App.


    There is a new App version 1.8.0 available to download.


    Please update your App, test it and give us your thoughts in this thread.


    Regards,

    the Travian Kingdoms team.

  • Afternoon TK Dev Team,


    I am not sure if I am not looking at the right place. So I am wondering if there is a way to see either local time or server time for troops landing for both attack and/or reinforcement. I can see the duration but makes it bit tricky if I am on the go.


    Regards,

    Some additional information from @Animal1867#DE: The same behavior can be observed in the auction house. If you bid on an item, the popup does not disappear, you have first to click somewhere else to close the popup.

  • Dear Developer team and Kingdoms community,


    As I said in my previous post, I've different idea to improve the UI of the 1.8.x version.

    Please look at 28129-improvement-in-the-ui-of-the-kingdoms-application (Forum link). I just want to be sure you have not missed my post ;)


    I've find 3 more Bugs:


    In robber camp, the layout for sending troops goes on top of raided resources:

    robberCamp.jpg



    In one of my residence, I've found a very weird display. To explain I've no cheif and my residence is lvl 10.

    I've other residence, but I've this display only in my City Capital.

    I don't know if this his due to the Capital or the City...

    ResidenceInCity.jpg


    As you see, 3 slot is available for the Residence and 2 chief even if I've no chief and the research is not done...


    Finnaly, A text is not correct: In the Main Building, if I read the text to found a City it says:

    Wrong City Text.jpg

    + 500 Culture point per day. This text is true only for the first city and I already have one city. The correct sentence should be: +200 Culture point per day.

    This is confusing for a new player...


    I've see different thing that got fixed with update. You are doing a really good jobs to find and correct bugs and improvment the application quality! Please keep going, Kingdoms app his usefull for many of us!


    Best regards,
    Pharo

    It has been very helpful to improve it.


    This allowed us to create a much better App for all of us to enjoy. :)
