Not give up, let’s grow up!
- In our metaverse a lot of things are changing very quickly, we need to adapt faster while the market is favorable.
- We have new cycles coming up that require attention and additional visualizations and engagement.
- The application was originally intended to be more specialized, and sustainable expansion is not possible without additional support.
The app was planned to unlock the potential of unicorn genes and display how cool some unicorns are. But after the announcement that Hawku was leaving us, I had to do a lot more to make sure players weren’t left alone with a useless OS. But I just can’t do the same amount of work for next to nothing.
The app has already alleviated some of the community’s problems in terms of matching unicorns to quests, understanding how well breeding or evolution has worked. There is still a lot of work to be done to make it more accessible. The plans have changed a bit leaving Havku, and I made a real-time server collecting and processing data on unicorns, with the ability to look at any unicorn, its family, genes, as well as search for unicorns with basic filters.
Next came the ability to get prices from the OpenSea and pick up unicorns for yourself.
The filters also have sorting by gene potential, which hasn’t been done anywhere else.
Unicorn profile with additional information. And it’s not a prototype, it already realtime works.
Next I want to make an image display for each unicorn, display body parts that are inherited, and statistics from jousting tournaments.
Ah yes, jousting tournaments, a weekly leaderboard of the best unicorns according to different evaluation criteria appeared.
You can see profiles of the top 300 unicorns, see how they competed. All data is updated in real time with information from the blockchain.
You could also look at a different representation of the data with unicorn stats including bonuses for jousting.
You can sort by almost any column and do analysis.
One last thing. After a difficult launch of Twilight tactics there was a need to play a new cycle without the pain of waiting for game loads, I implemented an alternate version of the contract interaction.
I chose to go the squad creation way instead of picking unicorns one at a time each time.
When creating a squad, you can select all 3 unicorns at once, and you can see the strength for that region, i.e. you don’t have to do calculations in your head.
And you can immediately see the unicorns involved in other squads.
Then we can simply use the list to select a convenient squad for the fight and watch a preview of the battle.
When you have a lot of strong unicorns the game starts to get enjoyable and adds a really tactical component.
It’s hastily made, but it’s already a success with the community and there are plans for improvement.
And so to the point.
When the last proposal was rejected because Laguna was planning their MarketPlace, I was down for a while. But then I realized that we need alternative concepts and visions. It’s not possible to please everyone, maybe they will make something more visually appealing to new players, and I will make a deeper vision that is close to smart players. And again looking at some things Laguna will also implement them into their core product, we have trouble communicating with words, but maybe implementations will allow us to speak a different language. I noticed how the tension in discord was relieved after the implementation of the alternative TwT. Maybe it will continue to be possible to do the right things for the community while the team is doing more important core development, they just can’t handle all the requests without sacrificing development speed.
I think new parts are needed like with unicorns for lands, tenerogs and rituals. I have plans for new leaderboards and improvements to the current sections. And who knows what else the community may need in connection with further changes related to Tribes, gem and so on. Making a proposal for each addendum is not reasonable, we don’t have that much time for approvals.
Working on the app takes even more time than I have, I had to partially sacrifice sleep and family time. I believe any work should be paid, especially if it is of great benefit and in demand. If this development does not bring so much benefit, I know many things where I can apply my enthusiasm.
Initial payment 4 ETH (for what’s already been done.)
And additional 1.5 ETH per month to continue development new sections and maintenance for six months with a possible extension. (2 ETH/mo. considering the first proposal).
That’s enough with the current number of active players, if we make the game grow exponentially, additional costs may be required.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me, without you I couldn’t have done it all in such a small amount of time.
