Passing along just a few suggestions numbered below. Thanks again for the free access to a great product!
Watopia - The new island is great and having some sustained climbs makes each ride feel a little more “strategic”. I do think the lap length is just a little too long. It was nice to rack up laps and there was incentive to do “just one more lap” on the old island. With the longer laps that sense of incremental accomplishment is diminished. The island feels a little more lonely now during periods of light use.
Watopia - I noticed there are some areas where the road seems to lift away from the ground, not sure if this is a terrain mesh resolution issue on my end or a flatten issue in the height map. Just a little distracting at points.
General User Experience - Please keep allowing us to “rank” up even if we are at level 15. Most games that have some kind of rank system will allow players to keep ranking up even if there aren’t any unlocks. When new unlocks are released players that have earned the required rank are given access right away. Just more incentive to keep riding.
Pared down mobile experience? More of a feature request, but I had an idea for a limited mobile experience. My power meter runs on Bluetooth and I use a couple of apps that record data directly to my phone. Sometimes I have to ride the trainer away from home and still want to get on Zwift, but don’t have a laptop to use the client. What if a top down map only view was offered via an app that still put us on the island, but didn’t have the 3D bells and whistles? Obviously it would be difficult to draft but it would be fun to still be riding with others even if in a limited version. Battlefield 4 did something similar with their “commander” mode that was pretty neat.
