Upgrading Airport City REMOVES Gifts

Post by kos on Fri Apr 27, 2012 6:51 am

Hi guys, just to let you know I just upgraded Airport City on my Android phone and they have now removed a lot of the gifts that were available to give. (Just to be absolutely clear, no gifts you have already received are removed.)

So my advice to you all is to delay upgrading to the new version that is waiting in Android Market/Google Play for as long as possible and you should still be able to send all gifts as usual.

If you have already upgraded, it is possible to roll back to the version that gives all gifts, see my post below.

Unfortunately once you have upgraded, the list of gifts available to give has been reduced a lot, for me the list is:

  • Fuel (3 units)
  • Biker Jacket
  • Loudspeaker
  • Air Conditioner
  • Cockpit Glass
  • Welder
  • Landing Lamp
  • Radar
  • Passengers (10)
  • Powerful Radio Transmitter
  • Textbook

  • Fuel Supply
  • Jet Engine
  • Whiteboard
  • Fuel Additives
  • Power Source
  • Additional Radar
  • Amperemeter
  • Spare Wire
  • Server Rack
  • Landing Gear

  • Oscillating Beacon
  • Flight Catering
  • Packaging Machine
  • Navigation Module
  • Master Plan
  • Fuel Hose
  • Gyroscope
  • Spare Propeller
  • Deicer
  • Grinding Machine
After more poking around I've found out that the items available to gift to others seems to differ slightly for each device. All the items needed for flights seem to be available for everyone, but unique items needed for buildings change. So where I have the Whiteboard in the list above, another device may have a Stapler.

OK guys, I managed to find the previous (full gifts) version (v. 1.31), of the application on my other phone Smile so I've hosted it online for anyone to download if they want to.

I've tested this on both my Android phones and it worked perfectly without deleting my airport or breaking anything, but I'm not going to guarantee that it won't, because with smartphones I think sometimes anything can happen! Smile

So, to roll back your Airport City version from the new version (v. 1.33) that has reduced gifts, to the older version that has full gifts (v. 1.31), simply download to your android device the file at the link below:

https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=a5f3f21c16575382&resid=A5F3F21C16575382!144&parid=A5F3F21C16575382!121&authkey=!AJs_RExOM6sQgcY

Once you've downloaded the file, make sure that Installing applications from "Unknown Sources" is enabled (in Application Settings) and then use a file browser (such as "ES File Explorer" found in the Market/Google Play) to run the .apk file. It will warn you that this will overwrite the currently installed program so just accept that and it will then install the older version.

Once it's complete you should be good to go! Open up Airport City and make sure you can give all gifts again!

Thanks for the heads up!

One question though:
If I would remove the upgraded version, and then install your .apk, will my current game state (e.g. save game) be preserved?

I don't think so Bertus. I think if you uninstall the game from your device then all your saved data is permanently removed as well (but I'm not going to try it to find out Smile)

You have to overwrite the current version installed without ever uninstalling (this works both ways, you could even jump between 1.31 and 1.33 any time if you really liked).

I have a Razor and it will not allow for updates. It will also not accept friend codes anymore. Anyone know if other Android phones are not upgradable?

Sorry it was not obvious from your post. The full name of the file you download from the link is "Airport City_1.31.apk" - perhaps the .31.apk bit is confusing your system. Just rename the file you have download to "AC131.apk" - then copy it over to you phone/device and you should be able to install it.

Let me know if you are still stuck.

I just downloaded it again to double check it is definitely an apk file (19.4MB in size). Like I said if you rename it to ac131.apk – you should be good to go...

Or else I will upload a copy to another location if you want.

It worked tamildv but more problems now. 1) Almost everyone appears as 'username' 2) Nadlen Airborn is now displayed like a normal friend, with no avatar and you can send her a gift. Doesnt really matter but it is strange.

Hi,

Glad you got it working!!! - the "username" is a known issue, I think this is an airport city server issue (I have tried various versions and still the name issue remains). Yes Madlen Airborn does appear as a regular user – as version 1.31 was not aware of it being a computer neighbour and you can gift to her but will not get anything back. I think it is V1.36 that this changes properly. But rest of the things should be ok…

EDIT - Looks like they have fixed the issue with the username - restart the game and all should be ok - I still have two as username and Medlen Airborn is appearing as username. So perhaps it will sort itself out.

I updated to the newest version from v1.31 to check the number of flights I needed for each flight (can not do on old version) then tried to download the apk file from the skydrive link again but would bot work. Just kept getting 'download unsuccessful'. It will be an issue with my tablet not the link or AC but anyone any disease about how to download it. My phone just won't download it. When you click on the link the page loads but it won't start the download.

Tamildv, or anyone really, would it be possible for you to put the download somewhere else on the internet and provide me with the link. My phone just doesn't like the link. I thought it might work if the download file was somewhere else?

Hi, will look at hosting it in an alternative place, it might be this evening (GMT).

P.S> You do know that you can download the file using any device (pc/phones etc) and just copy it over to the SD card of the target device.

I have as ththth (friend code xcfm1x) managed to roll back to version 1.31.

That means all gifts available ( soon as I need to reach level 32, which I will do to be able to gift all gifts)

Feel free to add me so I can gift. Please add your request after your user id, so I know what to send.

As mekgmg I only gift once in a while when the time fits according to time travel, and I dont have access to all gifts.

It is not required to gift ththth, as once reaching level 32 I wont play the account. But let me know if you quit, so I can add others waiting.

mekgmg is played on a pad, and that works a lot better/ quicker than on the phone.
