For Christmas I would like these bugs fixed
*COMPASS ROSE: players without magnetometers still have no rotation of their compass Rose in Prime, even though there is no such problem with pokemon Go.
The compass rose issue has been constantly misrepresented as being part of the 'direction of travel' issue. It is not, and must be treated as a separate issue. When the map is drawn, the game know which roads run N-S, and which roads run E-W. the compass rose needs to point to North on the map, which is already coded into the map, and has no relation to magnetic north.
Some genius tied the compass rose to the avatar arrow, and tied the avatar arrow to the magnetometer so that all three fail without a magnetometer. But the compass rose is supposed to point to north on the map, which has no connection to north in the real world, and therefore should be tied to the map, not the avatar or magnetometer.
*PARTIAL LINES OF TEXT IN COMM: comm messages are being cut vertically. Perhaps some phones render them in a different font size? This is really interfering with in-game communications.
*BIGGER NEUTRAL PORTALS: for real, we've been complaining about this since prime first came out. Almost nobody can see neutral portals when the map is zoomed all the way out.
*TEXTURE THE CONTROL FIELDS: People can't see XM, or neutral portals under control fields. Under a big field, in poor conditions, it is hard to realize there is any color on the screen. Apply a texture si we can tell.
*MOVING XM: one reason neutral portals were easy to spot in classic ingress was the moving environmental XM, and the stationary XM around the portals. We need these two kinds of XM in Prime .
*BUILD A PLATFORM FOR CLASDIC INGRESS:
You told us we would get used to prime, and learn to love it like we did with classic ingress.
I can't wait forever for that to happen. I'm still here. I still love playing ingress. I'm getting used to prime, I know how to make it work, but I can't PLAY prime. I'm just working prime. I have a job for working, and unless you plan to pay me $25/Hr or more, you'll never see me use prime as much as I used ingress. Because there is no joy for me in 'playing' prime. I dont enjoy it, and I want to enjoy Ingress again. I want to enjoy playing CLASSSIC ingress again. Prime still gives me no sense of happiness, and never will.
Prime should not be the future of ingress.
