Suggestion - New Ingress Prime Options
I suggest adding a few new options to the Ingress prime scanner to to help newbies learn the scanner. The options may make the UI a bit clunky for veteran players. but, if these are options, then veteran players can adjust the options to better suit their playstyle.
Further, I suggest that if this is implemented, then players who first boot up the scanner would get an option asking if they are new to ingress or not. Players who say they are new get the beginner settings, and veteran players get the veteran settings.
The options I suggest are:
Always Show Glyph Hack Results: Beginner - Enabled. Veteran - Disabled
When enabled, pressing the "Done" button after a glyph hack will show the glyph hack results screen.
When disabled, pressing the "Done" button after a glyph hack will return the player back to the map screen. This is the current scanner behavior.
Press and Hold for Submenus: Beginner - Disabled. Veteran - Enabled
When enabled, the player must hold down a button to get to the appropriate submenu. For instance, to get to the hack submenu, one would hold down the hack button and drag to the action they want to perform. Pressing a button that leads to a submenu performs a default action. This is the current scanner behavior.
When disabled, pressing a button that has a submenu will bring up that submenu, no holding required. There will be no "default" action taken from pressing buttons like the hack button. Once the appropriate submenu is open, the player must press a button on the submenu to perform an action, or press anywhere else on the scanner to close the submenu.
Press and hold for stronger attacks - Beginner - Disabled. Veteran - Enabled.
When enabled, the player presses and holds the attack button to start the targeting animation, then releases to determine the strength of the attack. This is the current scanner behavior.
When disabled, the player will press the attack button once to start the targeting animation, then presses fire again to determine the strength of the attack.
