Cartographers / Re: Needs Allowance to Reposition a Just-Placed Piece

Undos are very hard to program as they add an extra layer of complexity.

If that's the case, then Cartographers should instead have a Preview function. This would allow a player to place a piece, see how it affected their score based on the operative rules during that game, and have a chance to place it differently before they commit.

Cartographers / Re: Adding an “are you sure?” feature?
« Last post by Jimmy V. on 21/04/21, 01:29pm »
Hello,

We have made a small change to the code today. Hopefully this will improve the situation.
Please let us know immediately if anything goes wrong.

If the issue is not resolved, can you please answer these questions?

1) Does it happen only after rotating or flipping a tile, or even when using the piece in its original configuration?
2) Does it happen only with certain pieces?
3) Most importantly does it always happen after validating (meaning it is the click on the button that triggers the piece shift) or also before validating the move?

On touchscreens the tiles do often move after committing - it's really annoying. i think a short (maybe 3 seconds) time to redo the last move would be awesome.

Or maybe a second "ok" click, maybe only if a new "touchscreen option" is checked.

I fully understand how undos can be useful and I feel your pain too.

There is just one tiny problem. Undos are very hard to program as they add an extra layer of complexity. It is a bit like multiplying by 2 the complexity of the interface. Maybe not quite 2x but a lot. You can't imagine the number of bugs we corrected in HexRoller (because of the undo added complexity) to get things right in the end. For that game, it was more like 3x, 4x actually.

Really bad with phones.  Hex Roller seems to have it better as it takes steps to make a move.

Happens to me a lot. Sometimes the piece jumps.
I feel your pain. 
I would love it if this could be a feature

Cartographers / Needs Allowance to Reposition a Just-Placed Piece
« Last post by Haplo on 20/04/21, 05:28pm »
More than any other game on here, this game desperately needs a re-do function. There are games where numerous special rules are in effect and an accidentally misplaced piece can cost you the game (just happened to me). This is stupid. In a real board game, you would simply fix it as soon as you realized. An in-person opponent isn't going to say, "No way! You can't shift it at all!" without sounding like a real piece of work. No one wants to play with people like that.

So, there should be an option to lift a just-placed piece and place it elsewhere.

    Seriously, who's it gonna hurt? (No one. Except the trolls.)
    • And how many people will it make happy? (Every one who needs to use it, which will probably be anyone who plays numerous games.)
    • And it won't change the rules. It will only make the game more playable, like a real board game.



    And isn't that what we all want here?

That's cool, but depending on how you are programming levels of difficulty (which you clearly have) I was speculating if something had changed in regards to rolls and totals. Without the ability to show play by play there is no way to show a difference. I'll just play or not as it suits me. Thanks.
