The world’s first six-fold homogeneous field by a single agent was accomplished by @Balthildlres in Guangzhou, China. The action lasted about 8.5 hours, from 20:06 on May 27th to 04:34 the next day. Also thanks @NanoApe @ArielAxionL @WadeXXX @emonader @EnlightenedMW for designing, hacking keys, distroying crossed links, deploying mods and taking screenshots.
[English] In the morning of February 4, 2018, a Resistance team has finally made up a new idea, “pseudo 7-layered homogeneous CF (pseudo-L7),” in the center of Tokyo. It might be one of the most complicated multi-field ever made in Ingress world. The following is the full report of our challenge.
On 22nd May, the Japanese RES team of fielding enthusiasts created yet another enigmatic homogeneous fields over Shinjuku, Tokyo. Hope you enjoy this probably the most complicated CFs ever made in the Ingress universe. Our team will continue to investigate into the depth of portal networks.
The world was shocked by the Christchurch Mosque Shootings that occurred on the 15th of March 2019. Many agents in Perth have ties to New Zealand, and so it was decided to make some cross-faction artwork to express our compassion for the land across the Tasman Sea.
And so, on the 24th of March 2019, a group of five agents, directed remotely by Orangekeeper (who also planned out the artwork), converged on the city centre to create a picture of a kiwi, with a large heart at the centre.
No operation goes perfectly according to plan, of course, but the team quickly adapted to each problem with good spirits and enthusiasm. The first issue was one agent, an alleged mathematician, who mixed up “clockwise” and “anticlockwise” and started filling in a part of the field meant for a different team.
A second, more serious problem surfaced soon afterwards – one of the portals in the plan proved extremely difficult to reach. It was clear that making last-minute changes to a kiwi just wouldn’t fly, so the team persisted for forty minutes, circling the portal in laneways, hoping for random drift, until finally the portal was captured, linked and farmed for enough keys to complete the artwork.
Since the resistance team was delayed by this tricksy portal, the enlightened members quickly jumped on the job of key farming for the remainder of the kiwi, and using Adas to prepare key portals, saving invaluable time.
And so, Operation “❤️ for Christchurch” was completed. The agents involved were 57Cell, BobKeever, bluesfemme, LittleKehua, Orangekeeper and Phyerware
New Zealand, we are standing with you in this time of grief. Stay strong.
It was time for another cross-faction, cross-linking operation, this time with homogeneous fields, but most of all, it was time for an Ingress get-together!
A plan was put together – picture of a kitten spanning the city. The plan involving two four-layer homogeneous fields for the ears. Made the usual way, these would require sixteen portals each, but by making a triple crossed link, that number was brought down to six!
At 2pm on Sunday 17 February, eight agents converged on the rendezvous point in Northbridge, Western Australia. The operation began with clearing, and farming whatever keys were still needed for the anchors of the ears of the cat.
To make the blue ear, five Resistance agents attempted an ambitious five simultaneous crossed links. On the very first attempt, three links went through, enough to make the four layers shown!
Four resistance agents then made a field covering the three portals near the middle, and then threw back-links to complete four layers of fields on six portals!
While this was happening, two of the Resistance agents went to support the Enlightened as they made their own triple crossed link and homogeneous field. Their triple crossed link succeeded on the second try!
Then, it was quick work to complete the rest of the City Kitty, and convene to a local watering hole for refreshment and celebration.
Congratulations agents 57Cell, BobKeever, CarelessComms, LittleKehua, octarine, OrangeKeeper, scyrma, thestarfigment, and a special thanks to nzcoops who suggested the name for the op!
The crossed links in City Kitty’s ears show up beautifully in Ingress Prime:

Well, only a couple of days after HitC was posted, Niantic officially announced the December Glyph Challenge. So the team decided to make the artwork again, on the official Ingress #GlyphChallenge weekend.
We know the December #GlyphChallenge hasn’t been officially announced, but we just couldn’t wait to run our operation – the core of which needed four simultaneous crossing links!
Harmony in the City!
On Saturday, December 8th, 2018, agents 57Cell(R), bluesfemme(E), BobKeever(E), infinitebacon(E), LittleKehua(R), MrsSputnik(R), nzcoops(R), octarine(R), SSSputnik(R) and thestarfigment(E) gathered in the centre of Perth Western Australia, for a fun afternoon of smashing, capturing…. and cross-linking, cross-faction art!
