In Development #2 – January Update and Commentary Editor

Welcome, to my second entry in the development diary. In my previous entry, I already gave you an insight and information on what I am currently working on.

In today’s article, I want to show you on what features and updates you can count on in January, as well when they are going to be released.

New features and content in update 1.8

New countries – Currently there is only 4 countries available to choose from. This is going to change in January and at least two new countries are going to be added.

New News Articles – The new version will contain new articles. Articles on winning the Championship and Trophy will be included. Want to see your own articles in the game? Send me your own templates of articles you want to see and I will be glad to include them.

Extension of the simulation – The Simulation in the new update is going to be improved. New text and further initiatives are going to be added and improved, including penalty, free kick and corner kicks. A new extension is the calculation of Assists, as of now the game does not save this kind of data.

Information’s on player performance – The game will now provide information on how your player is performing.

Editor’s data export – An option will be given to export editor’s data on the pocket-manager Server. It will be an on demand option for now. I intend to make an exchange of User data on an intern function over pocket manager on the long run. (Member system)

Export of scores – With a new function, players will be able to export their scores.

New language Polish and revised English version – The game will be extended in Polish language, and the English version is completely revised. When is the new Update 1.8 going to be released? The January update is going to be released this Sunday for Android and with a little delay later on for iOS. End of January there will be another update.

What else?

In order to modify the game further, there will be own Editors programmed. Besides the normal Data you can then go ahead and add your own Articles or Comments and add them into the game. The Comments Editor is going to launch first and I will present its first version here on the platform tomorrow

In Development #1 – Football Pocket Manager

Welcome to my first entry in the developer diary of Football Pocket Manager. In future I will be posting here about the current development of the game, as well look back on past development stages. Every user will have the opportunity to contribute their own ideas, comments and critics into the development process. Either can be done over Facebook, Twitter or our intern forum.

What are we currently working on?

Currently I am working on balancing the game values, expansion of the simulation, extended Editors functions and the translation of the Game content.

Expansion of the simulation – As of now the game recognizes only normal goal chances with no penalty or corner kicks. Also there will be tricks implemented from talented players and more variety into the text modus. Besides the goal scoring, the Assists will be saved too. This will be implemented into the calculation of the equity. Along with the commenting there will be an additional possibility to cheer the game, but more will be spoken of in my next entry.

Balancing of the game scores – Many of you complained about the outrageous pay claims when negotiating. With the improved calculations of the equity and new features of the players, there will be much more accurate calculations of pay claims. This will also be improved by calculating the Stadium guests, finance (sponsors, fan articles) as well as optimizing the training of the player (strength and exhaustion levels)

Editing possibilities – To make the editing more user friendly and easier to share with friends we will provide a cloud attachment in the near future. There is an existing sharing possibility but it’s rather complicated and not user friendly. (See update 1.067)

New editors’ functions – Anyone who wants to include their own comments into the game can do so with our next update. This option will be released together with the new simulation.

Translations – Since it’s an international game, the English version is going to be revised and more languages like Italian, Spanish and French language will be added on with the next update.

New Game functions – In every big update there are going to be new game features. What they are going to be is still open.
