Friday Development Update: Part 113

3 min readNov 3, 2023

Another busy week has passed by in a blur and now it’s time for the brand new DeRace development update. So let’s dive into the accomplishments made by the DeRace team so far! 🤿

✨Data management enhancement

This week we have been focusing on optimizing our database to improve the overall performance and reduce the load.

By streamlining and organizing our data, we are able to reduce load times, improve resource management, and ensure that every interaction on the platform is smooth and seamless.

It also directly impacts the user experience. Faster load times mean less waiting and more racing. Smoother interactions mean less frustration and more enjoyment. By optimizing the database, we’re enhancing the platform’s efficiency, making it more accessible and user-friendly for every member of our community.

👥 Teams/clubs

Little by little our Teams and Clubs feature is taking shape!🤩

This week our front-end design team started working on the user interface for Teams/Clubs. While developing, we keep the community’s needs and expectations at the forefront, ensuring that Teams/Clubs become an integral and enjoyable part of the DeRace metaverse. Our goal is to provide a user-friendly and intuitive UI that empowers teams and clubs to thrive.

This development effort is crucial because it lays the foundation for a vibrant and active community. It’s about simplifying the process of creating and managing teams and clubs, making it easier for members to interact, organize events, and enjoy the game all together.

🏇 Race Intro

Our development team has embarked on an exciting phase of integrating the preliminary Race Intro feature into the game’s flow on testnet.

As we initiate this integration, our focus is to ensure that the Race Intro not only captivates with its visual appeal but also meshes seamlessly with the existing game visuals.

By embedding the Race Intro into the game flow, we aim to create a more immersive and engaging atmosphere for our players. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to refine and perfect this new feature!

🤖 Race API

Here at DeRace, we are committed to fairness and inclusivity. We’ve heard the community’s voice and recognized the need for change in the race API. To address this, we’ve implemented a 30-second registration delay for automated racing solutions. This means that once a new race is generated, it becomes visible to automated solutions only after 30 seconds.

This update means a fairer competition for manual racers against automated counterparts. Ultimately, it’s about providing choices and maintaining a balanced ecosystem that caters to various playstyles. This API update reflects our responsiveness to community feedback and our dedication to making DeRace accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

If you come across any opportunities for improvement or have creative suggestions, please don’t hesitate to share them with us. We respect your privacy, and if you prefer to remain anonymous, we’ve got you covered. Feel free to share your feedback in our dedicated Discord channel 👉
