Adding adventure sync to ingress
When is it planed to implent AS to ingress. Now we have over an year of prime. I thought its one of the reasons for going to the real world plattform that you can doing things like adding AS to ingress
For what? Free Unlock of the Trekker badge even without open the scanner? Why?
More accurate reading of the distance walked. If I walked 2km while playing then the full 2km should be added to my Trekker badge, not 1.5km or sometime even less.
Right its funny if you walked 10km for ingress and you get only 4 in the scanner
Don't understand why they haven't introduced a capsule that duplicates on walking. I'd love to get ingress credit for riding, like I get with Pogo.
I prefer one that recharge portal keys inside it.
Adventure sync tracks distance walked while the game is not running. It's not tracking distance walked while the game is running.
It depends on if they have it configured that way. But more importantly, it tracks when the game is running in the background, which you often do while walking between portals.
If you sync a fitness app you'll also get credit for higher km/h without opening the game.
That would be both nightmare, and brilliant. I don't want spooferbots getting access to that.
I find it rather disheartening that we have Ingress players who are oppose to more accurate trekker stat calculations.
I hope they will introduce AS in Ingress. They just need to higher up limits for tracker medal
Since the introduction of Adventure Sync in Pokemon Go, I usually make 100km every week in my Pokemon Go account even though I hardly play anymore because all walking and slow bike riding (even without using the phone at all) is counted.
More accurate tracking when playing the game is a good idea. Adventure Tracking for tracker badge, not playing is lame. If you want that badge, play the game.
More accurate tracking? I've seen agents who never leave the car to play with over 3000 trekking points because they can leave ingress open on their desk at work and let drift do all the walking.
Yeah and that will not work with AS anymore
Sure, it will. For Pokemon Go, it works like this: While you use the App, distance walk is determined by the app. While not using the App, distance walk is determined by the data gathered via the fitness tracker.
Distance between ingame actions is what is measured. So drift between hacking your desk portal might give you some trekking distance.
Ingress don't have eggs and walking prizes. The adventure sync has no use in current gameplay.
If it can be regulate to only count while the game is open in fist plane, then it might help a precise data.
whats the point having AS when the app is open? the idea is that app is closed and it counts the step from google fitness etc... but yeah no prizes in Prime but maybe that will change give us weekly bonuses like in pokemon based on how much we walk ?
If theres no point than also there's no necessity.
If they introduce a new feature, then yes. But it also should have some limits, like only load the last 15-30min when opening the app. This will prevent registering a whole day of walk without playing, while help those who close it between portals.
If theres no point than also there's no necessity.
The point of Adventure Sync is to track distance while the app is closed. You've declared it should only do it when it's not designed to do it, or not at all. You created the argument so you could **** it down.
Don't understand why they haven't introduced a capsule that duplicates on walking.
Because the most benefit from that would be gained by spoofers whose "walking" can be far more easily faked in the Google Fit app than even the spoofing.
So using walking as a metric for duplication would mean those Item Seller types would have far more high quality gear to sell.
Also said it's useless on the current gameplay style. The trekker status is supposed not track distance walked while playing.
To introduce AS it also must come with new feature to use it.
There's been so many threads (including this) discussing what that feature would be, it's assumed it would come with something.
I hope we can get free CMU when we use Adventure sync when Prime have it. @NianticBrian
We need that for sure! Often I don't have my scanner up all the time as it just eats my battery away.
And for them introducing AS they could implement some sort of "caches" that you find/hack and need walking to "unlock/hack" it through. The rewards should be a little bit special though, like for example 1-3 very rare mods, highest agent level busters or resonators etc.
Just something that would be worth to walk few KM and the value wouldn't be like hacking 1-3 portals.
These "hackable caches" could also drive the story forward...the possibilities are endless. :)
What I'm waiting for is the research/quest system they already have in Pokemon and Harry Potter. That style is mission from HPWU is perfect for ingress lore, as those investigation of Truthseeker could be there.
Agents are the own research system in Ingress. If we can get more balance between both team and more agents play every day we have lots to do every day.
Connecting three portals and making triangles that way would be a great addition to Ingress. Just simple, Ingress :-)
Yes, and this system is currently broken and dieing.
If you don't like innovation you can still keep doing the same thing forever, just ignore the new features the game eventually get.
Recycle all your capsules, mods and powercubes to starting the true ingress experience.
