Ingress 2.90.1 Release Notes

edited April 11 in Release Notes

What’s New

• Dynamic Links: Agents can share dynamic links to a specific Portal from the Portal Details screen in the Scanner app. Opening the link will open the Scanner app to Remote Portal View, even if you don’t have a Portal Key to that Portal. Please note that if Ingress is already running and open to another screen, like Inventory management, then the dynamic link will open after you finish your current task and close the Inventory screen.

• After all Agents have upgraded to 2.90, we’ll enable the Portal Scan Meter: Agents can collectively contribute 7 Portal Scans per Septicycle to schedule a Rare Battle Beacon on the scanned Portal after the Septicycle ends. If Agents contribute 13 Portal Scans, a Portal Fracker will be deployed on that Portal immediately after the 13th successful upload in that Septicycle.


Bug Fixes

• Fixed: Sorting Portal Keys by name retains its alphabetical order.

• Fixed: FITREP screen is displayed once per week.

• Fixed: Recently approved and accepted Portal nominations will be added to the Scanner app once per day.


thia Notes

  • If, during an event with Battle Beacon participation, a Rare Battle Beacon spawned at the end of a Septicycle as a result of Portal Scan Meter will count as a Player-deployed BB for the event.
  • We are aware that some of Portals are affected by the discrepancy in the Portals Discovered stat. The team is aware but I do not have an ETA for this at this time.
  • 17 March: As of today, all Agents will be on 2.90 and as such, the Portal Scan Meter has been activated! I've included some additional screenshots below.
  • 17 March: A single Agent can do all the scans required for the rewards or do it with other people. When, collectively, everyone has contributed the total needed scans, the reward will be triggered. The Portal Scan Meter shows ALL scans contributed by Agents during the Septicycle.

  • @AisforAndis Correct, 20 meter rule is intended.

  • • Dynamic Links: Agents can share dynamic links to a specific Portal from the Portal Details screen in the Scanner app. Opening the link will open the Scanner app to Remote Portal View, even if you don’t have a Portal Key to that Portal. Please note that if Ingress is already running and open to another screen, like Inventory management, then the dynamic link will open after you finish your current task and close the Inventory screen.

    Is there any chance of getting dynamic links to share to the scanner from the intel map?

  • The link is simply a constructed string, so it shouldn't be a hard thing to implement. Just depends if they're willing to do it. Otherwise it's back to IITC.

  • MewtwosTraner You've always been able to get a dynamic link from the intel map browser view. Click on a portal or mission, then click "Link" upper right, and it will drop down.

    People are just going to scan their feet (or most likely the inside of their cars) at flash farm portals.


    And if you intend to upload your scans later...you are gonna get scre.wed on that fracker heh

    One that opens the scanner right to remove view, as per this feature?? Please show me how??

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭✭

    There is no point for a fracker and/or battle Beacon to pop up at the end of a Septicycle.


    This feature is meaningless

    I was hoping for something else after so long wait ☹️

  • DSkatauriDSkatauri ✭✭✭✭

    So a fracker can be activated manually or only with 13 scan completely uploaded?

    Now home-portals gonna be scanned alot xD

    1, probably not, septicycles are long and crazy times, your likely bettee to just purchase..these as per relase notes will count as 'player deployed


    2. Doubtful, given the stat isn't visable and possibly not even recorded


    ....
