Future updates to the Google Play version of SimplePlanes will no longer support mods

Dev AndrewGarrison  1.9 years ago

We received notice from Google Play that they are going to start requiring 64-bit support. Normally, this wouldn't be a big issue, however doing this will require us to change how we build SimplePlanes for Android and we will need to change the scripting backend from Mono (which allows mod support) and move to IL2CPP (which does not allow mod support). Unfortunately, this means the Google Play version will no longer be able to support mods.

I just wanted to let you know so this didn't come out of the blue with the next update. Sorry for the bad news. However, the bright side is that the Android version will likely see performance improvements because of this. iOS has been built for 64-bit with IL2CPP for some time, so it won't see any additional performance gains. The macOS and Windows versions won't change and will continue to have mod support (except on the Mac App Store, where mod support is prohibited by Apple's TOS).

    @AndrewGarrison 1 i know this is kind of a late response but i understand. With the game being a few years old technology has improved. especially in phones. but lets hope for the best and just maybe there will be a way :)

    @EternalDarkness but my ban was over before you added extra time and perma banned my second account, it wouldn't have counted as ban evasion when about an hour before i was rebanned my accounts ban was over, therefore as my account was unbanned before the reban it couldn't have counted as avoiding a ban which, at the time, did not exist

    @Atomicdragon for ban evasion. Circumventing a ban with an alt is a bannable offense.

    @EternalDarkness my account has been unbanned so first things first, i would like to appologise for my stupid reaction to it, i just didn't like it and that combined with my anger problems made it worse. I am deeply sorry

    Well, I guess this ends my SP career on Android. Fortunately my laptop is unscathed by this, but I feel bad for all those who are majorly effected by this.

    Think about it, with future updates that will incorperate some of the best mods, that would increase the amount of fun for iOS users, it would allow the devs to continue to develop such a great game, and it would unite the Android and iOS users. So really, this is a small problem that could lead to an even greater game@Atomicdragon2005

    @EternalDarkness I agree with you on that.

    @Atomicdragon try to not use fowl language, it will not benefit you. It will only hurt you if you kept it up.

    @Atomicdragon your comment has been removed for excessive profanity. To clarify, devs aren't removing mod support from android version because they want to, but because they have to. Alternative is no further development of SimplePlanes. Devs are working hard to add features of all of the most important mods into the stock game so that Android users don't suffer much of a loss, and that's the best thing they can do in the given circumstances.
    This is a nice and friendly community, and toxicity is looked down upon, and is against the rules. You will get a lot more pleasure from this game if you try to be friendly to the rest of the community.

    @Atomicdragon Good job; you've single-handedly earned yourself a ban.
