Its December 2019, and prime is still bad
We're now on Prime V2 36. Classic Ingress got to V1.34. Prime is a year and a half old. Prime has been the only Ingress for three months. The transition was rushed and botched from day 1.
I'm still seeing the same complaints.
*several of your players can't even see ingress well enough to use prime. Even those who see it aren't excited by the graphics. No word on this issue at all.
*keys still can't be sorted alphabetically.
*linking causes phantom portals.
*speed lock is only partially fixed.
*navigate to still fails feature parity.
*missions are still a hot mess.
*avatar/compass is still being treated as one problem, when 90%of the issue could be solved today if it were recognized as two separate problems.
Just admit that Unity isn't the right platform for a game like Ingress.
Admit that the graphics of prime may be technically better, but are not experientially better than classic ingress.
Give up on this ugly baby. You need Ingress to be reliable and fast. You need a new platform anyway. You need a better UI anyway.
You need a new platform that can run Redacted. It was on V1.34, and ran almost flawlessly on even the faintest of connections.
Prime is on 2.36, and still crashes regularly, still has dozens of repeatable errors.
Get a new platform. With a new platform, you can work on improving the version of this game that actually worked instead of relying on this dead albatross that is Prime.
We dont need to zoom in and change angle of view. We dont need flashy 3d graphics. We need a map that works, a compass that works, measurements that work, and we need to be able to see the things in the game.
Redacted had what we need. Prime does not. I dont think any amount of "improvement" can fix that. What I want is Redacted, and it CAN be brought back. It just needs a new platform. Prime isn't working on the Unity platform so for any ingress to progress, you need a new platform anyway. Make it a platform for Redacted.
Prime has little more than one year, and a lot of frustration to its name.
Redacted has over seven years of work, and a higher rating than any other niantic game. You can develop from there.
