Weekly Update 10/04/2023

Enjoy Monkey Empire devblog and keep in touch with the ape game development
Backend — Worked on a solution to maintain idle-free TCP connections between our services, to avoid timeouts. Also added timeout safeguards in TCP calls to always have a response. — Working on multiple stabilizations in various features like Orders, Attacks and resource Collection — Create internal documentations on MKC storage vaults, for a better understanding in the frontend team
Frontend — Buildings aren’t build instantly anymore, had to rework that part to show the difference. — Click and Collect has been made again from scratch and shows a special effect. — Touch input has been updated a second time. It’s day and night compared to what we had before. — Energy bar is now working for real (there’s was one, but not used) — Paved the way to produce troops in the barracks, will finish and test implementation soon as we’ve discovered a bug preventing troops production on server side — Login menu will remember last username you used — After creating a village, load village level automatically like in previous version : from what I have tested it can be sometimes slow to load, I’ll see later how it can be improved. — If you don’t meet condition to build facilities, it will be greyed out — We are working on the new worldmap integration. — Fixed a lot of errors/warning in order to package the game (trying Android for now) — re-implemented attack menu
