Friday Development Update: Part 36
Howdy DeRacers, another turbulent week has passed in the crypto world but the DeRace team is building no matter what! We are calm, because we’re here to stay for the long term. Let’s take a look at what we have accomplished so far 😉
Updates on NFT horse equipment 🐎
DeRace game designers have finalised the wear-off conditions of horse equipment. Every item will come in 3 grades: brand new, fair or worn. It will take a little more luck to find the brand new item within the chests but it’s all worth it!
NFT horse wearables are being integrated into the platform back-end. We have finalized the structure, asset interactions and full functionality of the items.
The performance boosting side of the majority of NFTs have already been integrated and tested. But more on that next week!
🗝 Chests and keys mechanics
This week our game designers have created a functional NFT chest prototype and are currently focusing on improving it: making it more authentic and original.
Chest will have 5 tiers and each tier will be represented by a specific color chest which will relate to different chances of drawing a rare item.
Our game developers are still working on the NFT key prototypes and we are hoping to share them with you in the upcoming week!
Finally, we started integrating the chest and key system into the platform back-end: we have already connected testnet contracts with the DeRace V2 core and are currently working on the chest opening mechanics and the way NFT inside will be generated.
DeRace stables renewal 🤟
Our front-end team has already finalized the looks for brand new stables which we will launch together with DeRace V2 and they look just amazing!
The new stables will be divided into 4 parts: horses, inventory, equipment and jockeys. Inventory will hold such equipment as unopened NFT chests and keys, Liquid Love and any other items which do not fall into the other 3 categories. Once players open the chest, the item inside goes into the equipment category and can be directly used on the NFT horse.
The UI and UX flow of the chest has already been created by our front-end team: opening chests with NFT keys, purchasing chests and keys with shards, receiving shards by burning NFTs and more!
The new reward mechanism is coming together nicely and will soon be fully integrated into the DeRace V2. How exciting is that?!
🏆 DeRace V2 achievements
We kept on testing and improving the DeRace V2 functionalities throughout this week to iron out the minor glitches.
Our Smart Contract developers have worked on the feedback received from the audit to improve the DeRace V2 contract even more. We have sent the updated version back to the auditors and are currently awaiting for the final results.
That’s all for this week, stay tuned for the upcoming events, we have lots planned for next week.
