TR: L3 Base Perimeter Upgrade, Minefield Updates, and more – May 14th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

L3 Base Perimeter Upgrade

Looks like it’s getting a little crowded in your base, Commander. Good news! Gundar Arms Industries has secured a new deal on land charters, granting us the ability to purchase more land around our base perimeter.

  • Expand by your base perimeter by an additional 10%!
  • You must have at least Tactical Ops Center L9 to access the new expansion tier.

If you’re TOCL9 or above: the L3 Base Perimeter upgrade is available now, and accessible via the in-game “Defenses” Store for 1,430 Gold. 

L3 Base Perimeter Upgrade

Minefield Updates

Your engineers have improved their minefield charting system. They can now plant more than 28 mines without blowing off their own feet. All those years of playing Minesweeper paid off, I guess?

– TOC levels 3 through 12 all get a boost to the number of minefields they can deploy.
– TOC levels 3 through 10 can build two additional minefields.
– TOC level 11 can build 4 additional minefields, and TOC level 12 can build 6 additional minefields.

No additional research is needed to unlock the additional minefields. Just start building!

Game Improvements

  • While this week’s event store is open, from May 14 through May 23, players who previously purchased a Strike Team or Strike Squadron will have those purchases refunded. The items will no longer be purchasable in the store. The new crafting system will go live some time after this migration and refund process is complete.
  • Volume Controls update: clicking the volume bar between the plus and minus sign will now mute/unmute your volume. The UI tooltip is updated to reflect this. The game will save your last unmuted volume preference and restore it if you mute. Example: Set music volume to 50%. Click the yellow bar. It’s muted. Click the empty bar. It’s instantly back to 50%.

“Off-Facebook” Privacy Settings

๐Ÿ“ข Attention Thunder Run, Days of Valor, Mars Frontier, War Star Empire, and Battlefront Mars Commanders on Facebook:

Facebook has recently introduced a new setting toggle that allows users to turn off a feature that they call “Off-Facebook Activity”, and since then several Facebook Sharing campaigns have gone viral encouraging Facebook users to do so. We strongly recommend that you ignore any such advice it as it it’s been brought to our attention that turning off “Off-Facebook Activity” can remove access to our Facebook Game Apps on your account and subsequently cause various issues logging into the game.

What is “Off-Facebook Activity”, anyway? It’s a tool that gives Facebook App Developers the ability to share with Facebook when people are using their app. In the case of Thunder Run, we use it to tell Facebook when a player logs in, and when our system’s ability to do this becomes blocked the user, various errors can occur. You can read more about the specifics of “Off-Facebook Activity” here.

Rest assured, if you have already turned off Off-Facebook Activity and are having trouble logging in, your base and all of your progress remain safe on our servers, and you should be able to fix the issue by simply turning the setting back on. To do this, go to your Facebook Profile “Settings” Menu -> “Your Facebook Information” -> “View Off-Facebook Activity” -> “More Options” -> “Manage Future Activity” -> and then flip the toggle to it’s “On” position like shown below.

Make sure “Future Off-Facebook Activity” is toggled to “On”

As you might have already read the most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog, we’re also in the process of working on getting Thunder Run published on more platforms outside of Facebook, and offering new account login alternatives as part of our “Project New Horizons”. Stay tuned for more information on the next step!

TR: Kongregate Needs Our Help! – April 24th, 2020

This week in Thunder Run:

Kongregate Needs Our Help!

๐Ÿ“ฃ Attention Facebook Thunder Run Commanders!

As most of you probably already know, we relaunched “Thunder Run: War of Clans” as “Thunder Run: Global Warfare” on Kongregate earlier this week, and merged all of the Kongregate players into the Facebook maps. Kongregate plans to send us a bunch of new players soon for all of you to be able to recruit and do battle with, but we have to keep our game rating above 3.5 out of 5 stars on their website in order to help make that happen.

If you want lots of new people to play with in Thunder Run, and have a minute to spare: Would you be so kind as to login to “Thunder Run: Global Warfare” on Kongregate, and give the game a 5 Star rating to help us out? ๐Ÿ˜€

Instructions:

  1. Login here with your Kongregate account (or create one if you don’t have one already): https://www.kongregate.com/games/Battlehouse/thunder-run-global-warfare
  2. Refer to the screenshot below for where to find the ratings widget once in-game.

Thanks in advance, Comanders! Good hunting out there!
