1.12 Map Update
Mr. D posted a topic in News & AnnouncementsHi all, A large update has just been released to the Play Store (App Store release will follow separately), featuring the following changes: As some of you are aware, many of our in-game crashes are caused by Google Maps and some of its code that is outside of our control to fix. Which is why we've attempted to move away from Google Maps and introduced Mapbox (OpenStreetMap). Its performance is slightly inferior to Google Maps's, but stability should be a lot higher, especially on older devices and Android versions 6 or below. If no new issues arise with this map provider i
1.19.6 Capture Freezes
Mr. D posted a topic in News & AnnouncementsHi all, I have received a wave of emails / PMs and forum notifications about a new issue that appeared this morning; as many of you know it manifested in a form of "freezing land captures" (or "freezing upgrades") where pressing any of the Flag buttons resulted in a "Please wait..." message, but nothing else.

However, I remembered a lot of positive feedback about our previous Google Maps style and decided to bring it back! As mentioned previously, we can't have multiple OSM styles (as they're ludicrously expensive
Use Openstreetmap data/tiles instead of Google maps.
Swedneck posted a topic in General DiscussionsI just started the game and noticed the game uses Google maps, which means my city is about 3-5 years behind reality.. Any chances the game could use Openstreetmap instead? Since anyone can edit OSM users in areas where map coverage is bad can simply fix their area. This also means that players of this game who decide to fix the map would contribute to every other service that uses OSM. Simply put, the more things that use OSM, the more everyone benefits.
