  • Fixed spot for main building? Why? Don't try to hardcode limits on how we are able to build our own villages pls.

    Also it feels very rushed to implement the new UI on already started servers. Doesn't make any sense to "remake" the game in the middle of a round to me. Why not change it as new servers start? I imagine this change will lead to a whole lot of new bugs (something we already seem to have plenty off). I fail to see what good this will do

  • The issue is they are maintaining two branches of code right now. If they keep servers at T4.4 they will have to continue to do that for ~7 months more or so until they all finish. They don't have the resources to continue patching both, doing annual special work, working on new features and working on additional code updates.

    "Fixed spot for main building" - What this refers to is the default location of the Main Building which is different in T4.5 than T4.4 (I really don't know why they did this but its done). In order to implement T4.5 they need to move the Main buildings. You would still be able to move the main building after if you so desired. Edit: I haven't been able to play on a T4.5 server yet so I was unaware of this (and would never have thought of it because it is absurd) but apparently the MB is now like the Rally Point i.e you cannot build a different building in its place. I've expressed the dissatisfaction to the Game Center about this.

  • New look is just that - new look. After playing a few months I got used to it and can recognize buildings even on multi-tribes account.

    MB placement is still to address even though most would never notice (there is designated MB spot in new layout, same as rally point).

  • So far I have only seen the short forum post about Travian 4.5.

    I have a few open questions (Im probably not up to date, sorry)

    1. Is it still possible to reinforce players outside of the own alliance/confeds? (Basically: Is spiking still going to be a thing?)

    2. From what I read sitting players is only possible in alliance/confeds, correct? (So no more sitter checks?)

    3. Beginners protection is 5 days and can be extended to 7 days?

    thats already not possible anymore in newer servers

    3. Beginners protection is 5 days and can be extended to 7 days?

    wasnt it always like this on 1x?

  • I can't see any need or purpose of having a fixed spot for main building !!

    There are a lot of suggestions and ideas that you should be working on instead of this!

  • Starting T4.5, travian will lose more player... lets see

    -Sitter system is pretty bad, and getting worse with the new system... We cant check ppl who want to join ally

    -some ppl still got banned bcs of sitter abuse, which is they dont do any sh*t. That MH who ban carelessly only said sorry after he ban for 2 days.

    -i see MH ban someone for pushing resources too much, so why dont you delete market building from the game if we cant send ress to someone? when i see the reason, it said "Etc"... kind of stupid, then just write new rule "NO CFR ALLOWED". After some talks on ticket, he sounds like MH decision is absolut, so why there is any ticket feature? player cant complain if the MH do something wrong. That's messed up, why the he*l TG should pick MH like he is

    -A lot of ppl dont like the new building interface, and etc. It will make us harder to play.

    Travian, please focus onmake this game better. No need to make useless feature....

    Well, i think TG is run out of idea to make this game better....

    i hope all player can give them some advice for the game


  • 1. build training alliance in meta

    2. it is not t4.5 but other decision to use new system

    3. it is crap indeed, mh who does not know ingame mechanics. like diseases they have been and will be here for eternity

    4. take some time to adapt. it is not that hard after 1-2 weeks

    I'm worse at what I do best and for this gift I feel blessed . . .

  • Do we want to rework the graphics? mainly buildings? 93

    1. Yes buildings are confusing (86) 92%
    2. No. I am happy with the new design (7) 8%

    Returning the old design is unrealistic, but reworking the graphics of mainly buildings should not be a problem. Therefore, I decided to create a poll to post on COM, DE and CZ forums. Please vote as many as possible. Thank you.

    I'm never afraid of the future. He will soon come.

  • Guess is time to stop investing 100 to 500 Euro / year on the game.

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

  • Hello,

    will there be any option to opt out of the current graphics overhaul and be able to use the old one at least until the end of the round? (COM3). The newer graphics have everyone pretty much confused and disgruntled over the current state of the game.

  • Overall I do not like the T4.5 update.

    -The overall color palette is dark and brown

    -The buildings are nearly indistinguishable from each other.

    -Please allow us to use the old building graphics

    Thank you.

  • Hello to all,

    I hope it will work (but I doubt it): the new graphics are really horrendous<X. At least as far as Teutons are concerned, only brown was used for all the infrastructures and nothing really stands out. (similar situation is the Roman's buildings)

    99% of gamers are unhappy with this new update.

    If possible, we want version 4.4 back... or you will see really the number of players halved on all servers (We will be one of them).
