Browser extension, membership timezones

Version: 2.1.0 Date: 18.08.2022

In this update, we release an open-beta version of our Chrome browser extension as well as rework of timezones in Travco.

Browser extension

We're excited to announce a new whole new part of Travco - browser extension! It is currently in open-beta stage.

Right now, the browser extension can be used instead of any copy-paste reporting of Travian pages into Travco. Get rid of the copy-pasting hustle and report everything with a single click, right from the game! This includes

  • Villages overview (troops in villages)
  • Incoming attacks
  • Enemy heroes (works even for the new Travian heroes!)
  • Farmlists
  • Attack reports
  • Resource pushes and cropper

While most of the features are reserved for Plus+ members, the reporting of enemy heroes is available for free membership users!

Beware, that the only way you're able to report enemy hero in the new version of Travian (with the updated heroes) is through the browser extension!

Follow this link to get the browser extension.

All of the features are and always will be in compliance with Travian rules. They don't make any action, modify or interact with the game in any way - you will not get banned for using this extension.

 

Improved timezones

Until now, each Travian member could only select one account-wide timezone. This made it very difficult for players who were part of multiple groups, each within different timezone. It was also very difficult to synchronize each member of a group to have the same timezone. In this update, we've addressed these issues.

  • Group leaders can now select default timezone to be used for group members in the group settings. Group leaders can now also see the timezone set by each member.
  • Every group member can set different timezone for each of his groups. The default selection is "Automatic" which means that it will follow the settings of the group (see point above).
  • We've removed many timezones from the selection and left only those which are actually used in Travian, since other choices made little sense and the large selection was unnecessarily confusing.

Inactive scouting, Target tags, and more!

Version: 2.0.0 Date: 22.06.2022

A large update has arrived to Travco. Most notably, we bring in Quick inactive search scouting feature, reworked attack plan preparation and Target tags, possibility to manually create Attack reports and more!

Quick inactive search scouting

Feature which is going to bring a smile on a face of each and every farmer. 
In Inactive search, you now have a button next to each target to quickly send scouts. Moreover, you can set up rules on the amount of scouts to be sent. For example:

  • send 1 scout to villages between 1-50 population
  • send 2 scounts to villages between 50-100 population
  • send 5 scounts to villages between 100-200 population
  • ... and so on.

An extremely useful part of the feature is, that you can also mass quick-scout your targets by checking the checkboxes of villages that you want to scout. With the settings still being applied for each individual target!

 

Target tags

As the amount of targets in your attack-preparation toolbelt grew, preparing an attack plan could get messy quite quickly. This was dramatically improved by an addition of Target tags! 

  • You're free to create many tags for your targets, with various colours and text
    • for example, you can tag your targets based on the artifact they have, whether they are on the rotation for trainers artifact, whether the village is in a gray zone and so on - whatever comes to your mind!
  • Assign and remove the tags from your targets
    • you can assign/remove the tags either one by one
    • or use a mass tag action by clicking the checkboxes in each row
  • Search/filter in the Targets by their tag by various types of filters
    • the Target needs to have all selected tags (AND logic)
    • the Target needs to have at least one of selected tags (OR logic)
    • any combination of the above

Updated attack plan preparation

When setting up the attack plan, Travco now allows you to use all types of filters when activating the attackers and targets. We've also changed the flow slightly, so it shouldn't be as confusing for new users.

 

Manual attack reports

We now give you the ability to create an attack report manually.
This can be very useful, when you want to keep track of your enemy armies in Travco, but all you have is a screenshot.

 

Pagination

Travco finally comes with a proper pagination on list views. You're now free to set the amount of results you want to see per page - and Travco will remember your choice for each page individually. 

UI Patch

Version: 1.9.7 Date: 23.05.2022

New logo! And some minor stuff.

TS Optimiser, Quality of life improvements

Version: 1.9.0 Date: 20.04.2022

In this patch we bring multiple quality of life improvements and fixes based on your feedback. We're also shipping a new feature - Attacks TS optimiser.

Attacks TS Optimiser

Are you tired of sending attacks whole day? A new feature which will make all Plus+ offensive players happy. Travco now automatically finds optimal TS levels for your attacks so that you can send all attacks quickly. The algorithm has multiple levels of "aggressiveness" so you can decide on the time saved vs resource cost tradeoff.
The Attacks TS Optimiser feature can be found in Attacks -> My attacks in the sidebar.
