Yea I have been wondering this too. Being able to see those all at the same time would be nice. Another thing I miss from the old scanner, the mission start portal markers. Any chance those are returning? @NianticBrian
I hope ring remove automatic if we both capture and visit. I dont like see all rings on my location when I already visit and cature all portals.
Please read the feature description next time, it's working the opposite way. And stop pinging Brian in every message ****!
They appear as “layers”, which you are more than welcome to turn off. Calm your hakuna matatas, read the announcement AGAIN, and wait to try it out before you tag Brian on literally every single damn post.
I like the idea, but I disagree with a design/implementation where color is the only differentiator, especially if it's red vs. purple.
I'm not diagnosed as being color blind, but I still have issues telling apart some of the shades of colors used in Ingress and Prime under certain circumstances. This is usually not an issue because the information conveyed by the color is also conveyed by text (e.g., the numerals in "L8", "L7", …) or shapes (e.g. the 1/2/3 bars for common/rare/very rare).
I'd suggest colors that are "farther" apart and/or using different shapes for captured vs. visited.
This was the MOST REQUESTED FEATURE EVER in ingress! 👏 👏 👏
Waiting for the inverse option in the future. (soon) TM
Half circle: visited but not captured
Full circle: not captured or visit
Or maybe just change the thickness, bolder being for capture (but also having different color, for non color blinded).
I'm also with Perringaiden, this two could have been just one layer.
Honestly, they should have gone with what's been the standard for years 'outside' the Stock map.
Red for unvisited.
Yellow for visited but uncaptured.
But that's an inverse view.
Not what I'm interested in. I'm just volunteering to be early on the general roll out.
@NianticBrian I don't have an issue with colour blindness.
But a friend of mine does. And these halo colours are bit of an issue.
Are there still plans for a colour blind filter to the game map to help those players that do have issues differentiating colours?
I hope you stop posting and read before pressing "Post Comment"
10% rollout is randomly selected by Google. You want fast-track gotta get in on Beta path.
The way the system currently work, you can only use one layer at time, so the color won't be a problem, unless he forget what is the current filter, but a quick check will solve the problem.
Maybe when they decide to change something or allow to see multiples layer at once, then it will need stronger differentiation. I think that portal orientation also could have visual differentiation as well as color too, like RES being more squared/robotics and ENL rounder/tree like, something like that.
I love this view!
Now this i name useful update! Can't wait to have "layers" button active. Really,thanks a lot.
By the way,why Ingress sometimes asks to rate it? I haven't reached level or something,and i've rated it few times before.
Congratulations to Ingress team!! Thanks for these awesome and fully useful update!! I can't wait to see it in my scanner.
I cannot comment yet on or critique it, as the update isn't available yet
If it is only visible by layer, then I'm gonna be like a kid in a candy shop
First time in a long time that I've been excited for a update!
Absolutely! Now I wish I could get back out there exploring!
I hope we can get 2 new cool animation when we capture or visit unique portals. Also 2 new speak sounds capture and visit.
Hope we can get the pulse back and puls sound. I dont se the update give puls back. If Niantic like remove better agents can disable pulse from settings.
It is very power feature. It saves a lot of time and brings new power to speed discovering new portals.
So time was lost by visiting old portals after dron recall.
Looks very chep and bad. Please relese animation ring around the portal that spins with more high grafic for premium phones.
Actually, the comment you linked shows they intend to invert, but it doesn't indicate a combined layer.
Do someone know how to force update the play store? Or know when theirs schedule are?
Because since day 12 on the browser version it list the update there, but on android app it is still only available the version from January...
No, and 'one week'. And the 'version from January' is only 3 weeks old, and you probably only got it 2 weeks ago. They are releasing fairly regularly every 2 weeks, with up to 1 week of rollout delay. "Day 12" was 4 days ago...
I do not know if this has already been commented on in a post, if so, I apologize. An idea could be to add a blue circle to the portals hacked with Drone.
Portal Marking! Have hoped for this for a long time. Good for upc
Other than the purple halos.
This update feels much more polished.
Now for the return of the XM pulse audio and visual effects, and the enabling of 60FPS.
Maybe even seeing field umbra's being much more visible than they are.
Such things add so much ambience to the game.
