There are few changes today. More info in the article
We We addes 2 new features to the game today.
1. Corporation update
If one of your partners from the corporation went inactive for more then 2 months, any of the other partners can propose a law to remove him from the corporation, by selling his share to an outside company.
2. Helms exchange bot
We have added this automatic exchange function to an admin controlled account, to help those players that fit helms-usage criteria to transform them in gloves faster.
How does this work:
- look in game for I A Robot
- donate an amount of that you choose helms to this account
- automatically, you will receive same amount gloves in Boxing Ring
Remember that all helms related restrictions work for donations to this bot also.
We wanted to start the year with a light, small and unique update, with no influence on game mechanics, but one that will provide some fun for players and a better visual experience.
If you have buddy active, go to edit profile where you will see a new option:
- Game skin
Press on the arrow to open a list of Game skins, freely choose one and press Edit to apply changes.
This will modify the menu theme along with the footer theme. There are several thems, so go experiment.
- Why you need buddy active? This way, we apply these changes only to active players.
- What happens when buddy expires? simple..go complete the iceberg again seriously now, when buddy expires, your theme will remain the one you had, you just wont have the change skin option available.
We hope you will enjoy this small and unique update.
Soon, Gunslinger, our technichal manager will publish an article about the upcoming major updates and plans for Ice Apple.
We are happy to bring you more interesting and unique features! So stay tuned!
We have implemented new Days of Rage event and Golden Apple item
You can find more information about it THERE
There are 2 updates regarding military unit:
- you can now demote an appointed captain of the unit back to the simple member rank. To do so, you simply press same button you used to appoint someone as captain, again.
- you cand now disband an military unit and get 15 gold refund. To disband an military unit you need to follow these steps:
1. obviously you have to be its commander
2. go to MU edit page
3. look at commander change field - there is a hint there: Use value 5 to disband your MU and restore 15 gold.
4. so, type 5 in that field
5. press CHANGE
New elections restriction
Now players with level 16 or higher could vote on CP,congress or PP elections.
We added three features that were long-time requested by you:
1. Wars page update
2. Instant energy refill
3. Military Unit BIG storage update
1. Wars page update - You wont have to open each battle to see the situation of that particular battle. You can track all of them now. We added a new column which shows the war-bar evolution, in procentages. More precise, it will show the WINNER'side procentage. You can see who is winning by the color of the procentage:
- red, for the defenders
- blue for atackers.
Example, if one battle shows 52% red, that mean the defender side is leading in that battle with 52%.
* Note - this column does not have autorefresh at this point. You have to refresh it yourself to see the evolution of the battles from the time you opened the page.
2. Instant energy refill - the button to eat q5 food and gift was replaced with an RECOVERY button, which will refill automatically your energy bar up to 90% (and consume the needed amount of food/gift in the process)
This RECOVERY button is visible only if your energy level is bellow 90. When your energy reaches 90+, it turns back to normal eat button. the reason for that is to avoid consumption of an q5 item for recovering for example 4 energy.
Example: if you are down to 4 energy, press recovery button, and you will instantly have 94 energy, and your recovery button will be replaced with eat button.
3. Military Unit storage update - this is also a feature many players requested on and on. At first we wanted to add another 1 - 2 upgrade levels, with normal amount of storage space, but then, decided we should make this one a huge upgrade, for an appropriate price. So, there it is....storage level 6. It will give you 2500 aditional space. The price for this is composed of:
- 50 gols
- 1 kitbag
- 1 lab
The kitbag and the lab must be in MU inventory, and will be consumed during the upgrade process.
We hope you enjoy these changes, and we want to assure you that all your ideas are noted and analyzed, and the game will continue to evolve as its players want.
1. New editor for media module. You can read more here
2. When you go to http://ice-apple.com/en/news/0-1 and select a country, it will now show all the articles made by players located in that country, REGARDLESS of where newspaper is registrated.
So if a player with X citizenship moves to Y country and writes an article there, the article will appear on Y.
3. Players with Gold Pack q1 are no longer able to vote without birthday restriction. You need GP q2 for that.
Reason for this is because some players thought to cheat the game by using the free GP feature we offered in missions to create voting clones.
First of the national goals and wonders were implemented.

As you noticed, ICE APPLE team got more receptive to players sugestions in late period, and we brought you updates you desired and asked for. Many others are still to come, and we assure you all your suggestions are of a great value to us. That beeing sad, we would like to announce some changes in beginners missions.
These changes are explained HERE
With these changes we wanted to make the game more interesting and more appealing for new comers, and increase the number of new-comers that become regular players.
Many other attractive updates, new features and old ones remastered will come, so stay with us, and get your friends here o7
After yesterday's updates, today ice gets more new features.
DS hitpoints were raised for all categories, as follows
Q1 DS - 2 milions
Q2 DS - 4 milions
Q3 DS - 6 milions
Q4 DS - 8 milions
Q5 DS - 10 milions
Reason behind this upgrade is that while the players evolved and raised their damage, DS remained the same, getting to the point where one Q5 DS can be easily made absolute by one player. So, in order to give DS their role back in the game, and also the value for their coins cost, these upgrades were made.
This update apllies to all curently installed DS that are not part of an ACTIVE battle at the moment the update was made.
DS installation is not available during the last 30 mins of the battle (previously was 5 mins).
NAP LAW upgrade
You all know what nap law stands for. However, seeing that people have no problem in closing naps then breaking them, the cost for singing a nap law is now raised to 250 gold for each member. So, if a country breaks it, at least the other signing country will receive a nice compensation.
Some will say that is a big price. No, is not. Dont break your deals, and you wont lose a single gold.
Break them, you pay.
A new alert for referall gain
Title says it all - whenever your referal earn you some gold, you will receive an alert about it
