I made an app for scoring Terraforming mars

It's only on Appstore(ios)

(Terraforming mars scorer)

Android ver. is under developing





I'm sure you don't need more information.
It's easy to use and help you count your score.

Enjoy TM

Just downloaded this, its a nice idea but still needs some work:

- When scrolling the rows jump up and down the screen and sometimes disappear.

- I was changing values and it didn't actually adjust the total score.

- The categories are a little unclear (for example the "City w/ green" - is is each one unit a city completely surrounded, or is it a unit for each bit of greenery around your city (in which case if you are counting every one you may as well just add it up?). Also the "Awards" have a first and second place so are you literally just counting up how many points you've got?)

I like the idea of this, but at the minute its basically just a calculator with some pictures. If you could have it so it took out some of the leg work that would help.

Good start man, keep working on it.

Could be nifty in a way, I guess. Although I admit I am struggling to see how this could be easier than just moving your marker on the score track.

It could be useful to record Solo plays with a bit of tweaking!

Thank you for your advice!

I found that bug(scroll and unchange total points)
And I’m struggling to make this app better. You gave me helpful idea about that.

Really appreciate

It will be updated soon!

So you publish Fryxgames copyrighted art as your own in an app? I wonder how Apple could accept this.

Apple cannot really tell which art is protected by copyright.

It does not look like someone tried to steal the artwork, anyway, so a kind reminder should be good enough to let the OP know that something needs to be changed.

OP:
- Check whether you are allowed to use the trademark "Terraforming Mars". You may have to use a generic name like "Mars game terraforming score app". This has nothing to do with copyright, this is about trademarks which may be protected.
- Change the icons to something different, e. g. generic green and gray hexes.
- If you want to use an image, e.g. as background, TFM contains a lot of public domain images with the source idicated on the card, so you can track the image down and find a good resolution copy for your work.

I am not sure whether Örjan is involved with the publisher, or their lawyer, but he certainly is right about the artwork - you would need permissions to use it.

I made a paper score sheet, using the images you used in the app
(how can I upload a word document here?)
