There are some great features planned for this update, so developers will start 2013 with a blast! The 0.24 update will be implemented on January 9th 2013. We focused especially on polishing the Great buildings feature and added some brand new items to help you collect your Blueprints more swiftly. Also a Great building overview has been introduced in the Town hall.
Great Buildings overview
Keeping track of all the Great buildings you are supporting is no easy task, so we came up with a feature that will help you with this in the future. An overview that displays all the Great building contributions you have done, plus your current rank, can now be found in the town hall, in the news section.
Trade duplicate Blueprints:
We noticed players were receiving a lot of duplicate blueprints. It is now possible to trade 2 duplicate blueprints for 1 RANDOM Blueprint of the same Great building. Simply go the the inventory and click on the Great building with the duplicates and select the pieces you wish to trade, by clicking on them. Then click on the new "trade 2:1" button below, and you will get a random new Blueprint.
Increased Blue Print Droprate:
Many of you had trouble finding all the pieces to finish your constructions so the droprate of the Blue prints (for both motivating and plundering) has been increased.
