We’re very excited to bring to you one of the top Agent requests: Capsule Renaming! Starting with Ingress Prime version 2.18 you can give a custom name to your Capsules, Quantum Capsules, and Key Lockers.
We know inventory management is crucial to your Ingress experience and hope this update helps you feel more in control of your items.
So how were we able to accomplish this feature in advance of completing our new server? While working on the Ingress Prime new Agent tutorial some of our engineers realized there was a clever way to execute Capsule Renaming while the new server is still in progress. To implement this they repurposed a server-side feature developed for the Agent tutorial in order to enable Capsule Renaming. The client-side work became relatively straightforward thanks to the new infrastructure provided by Ingress Prime.
What do you need to know about Capsule Renaming?
Capsule names are exclusive to you. This means that other Agents aren’t able to see custom capsule names even if you drop the named capsule. The custom capsule name will be visible throughout your Scanner. This includes when it’s in your inventory, or even if you drop it. The name will even persist for about a week - so if another Agent picks it up and returns it to you within that time frame, you’ll see the name you originally set. Named capsules will be sorted alphanumerically, and Key Lockers will be shown separately for easier access.
We look forward to your feedback, happy renaming!
