Could we have an increase on the number of missions we are allowed to submit? I had to withdraw several missions in order to make a banner for an upcoming First Saturday event.
Could it be possible to get a new submission for each time a mission is completed by more than 10 agents for example ?
@mobilete that seems like a good idea, but would be unfair for rural players. Maybe if the number of completions is related to the mu available where the mission is.
I would also, have to agree with this. I have several mission banners that have become well known in the area. Taking them down seems wrong simply to make new ones. The only reason I have been able to keep trucking recently is the fact that I an area of a theme park went down for long term construction, because I know many people only have money to get in a few times I didn't want them to start a mission series then discover they couldn't get mission 15 because of construction. So I ended up pulling 4 banners.
you can simply ask other players to submit it. for events it is possible solution, every L7 agent can submit missions...
Would be nice to increase the number of mission with correlation of number of agents do your missions or with the missions of that Agent have.
Asking another agent to submit is not really a good solution. Planning out a good pathway for a large banner takes a lot of effort and experience to do right. I have gotten my son to submit a mission for me, but I was in the room with him and able to explain the best path, etc.
Then there's the issue of being able to edit the mission later. Sometimes new portals come in that could improve the missions, but if someone else submits the missions for you it's harder to get those edits made. Even with the example of the mission my son submitted for me, it's been hard to coordinate a time to make an edit I think is needed.
@ntzz it would be very unfair to give more missions based on the number of agents who complete the missions, because that would give an advantage to people who make missions in large cities.
@Pangarban And? What is the problem?
if you spend more time doing a job like searching or doing a good image for a banner, creating a good route.... why don't give him a bit more value?
There is too much difference between a banner with 1-2 lines with bad words than a good picture and 7-8 lines...
Also, if you create such a good banners in villages o small cities, that Agents goes to get this and make some turism.
Totall cap of 150 missions looking good for me.
Unfortunately those agents with 150 missions online are likely to be also the most experienced ones when it comes creating quality missions and banners. Limiting those agents with arbitrary cap seems like a bad move from NIA.
NIA raised the cap already once, and I think they should do it again.
I think banners (especially those which are designed to be XFAC) should be highly encouraged by NIA. They make agents travel around, discover new places, meet and socialize with fellow agents.
What is a cornerstone of Ingress if not this? As today, 150 missions are not really enough (even because today everyone wants to submit at least a 6 missions banner, see IFS banners).
It would be great to not have any mission limits (I understand it could be a bit difficult) but considering that not everyone submit banners, raising the cap should not be such a big deal and would make everyone happy.
Working together for large mission banners have been done like this forever. Seems like as long as you communicate and coordinate with each other, this will work fine.
With the current and ongoing new development of the "Mission Feature," a few questions.
I'd like to see the action radius for Field Trip waypoints increased from 40 meters to 60 or 80 meters.
Portals must have safe pedestrian access -- there is no such requirement for waypoints. For example, if a beach waypoint that was once safe to access at low tide is no longer accessible under any conditions due to erosion or ocean level rise, it tempts agents doing the mission to endanger themselves. A similarly located portal could be reported for removal.
Missions should be for exploring new locations and cultural content, not for spending 40 minutes walking around a locked building hoping for favorable drift onto a waypoint.
I can say I have done both of those .. crossed warning tape to hit a non-portal beach waypoint in a banner at high tide with super big waves, and had to wander around inaccessible areas for an hour trying to hit a non-portal waypoint. 1000% agree with Morganza that increasing the radius for field trip waypoints is a very good idea to increase agent safety, particularly as what was once safe may no longer be.
Just wanted to add my 2p to this. More submissions. Not for me, I've done none, but for the people producing high quality banners and then pulling them to create more. I'd happily donate my 150 to the people I know are making the quality banners if I could. Me submitting on their behalf just isn't feasible or supportable, short or long term, plus they deserve the credit.
How about paid submission?
Unfortunately, the field trip waypoints are going away soon. We aren't going to get any updates to how these work.
I'd even pay for more mission slots after the first 150.
we need more missions to submit more FS banners and more other banners, we are creating user content to keep ingress being interesting to old and new players.
