Hiding your players’ actual location

Recently we launched a feature of “Allow clicking on map”. That feature has made indoor games with a map or photo overlay of a floor plan possible. You can find more info on that feature here: https://loquiz.com/2020/03/31/features-to-battle-corona/ . To go further, what is a valuable addition to the “Allow clicking on map” is a hiding location feature.

To clarify, “Hide avoids the situation when in an indoor game, the players’ are going to center themselves on the map with my location button. Yet, the game on the map is not placed on their location. With hiding location, it’s not possible to center yourself off from the play area. 

Above all, hiding feature hides the “blue dot” that indicates the player’s location.

That in mind, it can be a possible implementation case in outdoor games. For instance, when the game designer doesn’t want to make the orienteering for the players easy. In contrast, the instructor encourages them to navigate by street names. 

In conclusion, the difference between with and without “Hide my location” (the button on the upper right corner):

Without “Hide my location”. Location centering is available.
With hiding location. Location centering isn’t available.

The feature is available on Loquiz platform:
