When you first run ATO Logbook, you will see this opening screen. If you want to use the app to log your drive using GPS, you need to ‘allow while using app’. GPS is required for access to your location when driving.
If you enter in the drive time and distance yourself, then you do not need, and can select ‘don’t allow’.
If you find that you do want the app to track your journey, but you didn’t select always allow, you can chance it later. Go to the settings screen > Privacy > Location Services. Then click on the logbook app, and change the settings to ‘always’.
To run a successful city, you need to get your hands dirty. And that means city statistics. You can’t have too many, so I have made a start on the stats. We will keep historic data on stuff such as population, crime, pollution and power use.
The all important unemployment rate is there, this will affect how quickly your city will grow, as well as how happy everyone is.
You can see a few dips in the population growth, which is a bit of a worry. This was due to me testing out the fire effect, and letting it run. It didn’t take much to get out of control
Started work on a new game, a clone of Simcity v1. This is the old 2d version, the very first version that came out on the PC. Getting the graphics and UI working was the easy bit, and you can see the progress after just a few days in this screen shot.
So far, you can build a power plant to power the city, residential, commercial and industrial zones, as well as a police station and a fire station.
You will also need roads to connect the residential to everything else, as well as power. If a location does not have residential access and power, it can not function, just like in the real world.
