Friday Development Updates: Part 20

Next 2 weeks are going to be BIG for DeRacers! A lot of thrilling features are coming to the game! 🥳

Let’s have a closer look at what we’ve been up to and what surprises we have in store for you.

🎤 My name is…

Naming a racehorse IRL is a BIG deal and it’s the same in the DeRace metaverse too! Your champion absolutely deserves to have an awesome name of your choice and we are making that possible!

So start thinking of the perfect name for your champion because the horse naming smart contract is completed! The renaming function is currently being integrated into the website and you will be able to use it very soon.

How will you rename your racehorse?

Love is just around the corner 💕

We can already sense the love in the air since NFT horse breeding is almost done! We are adding the finishing touches to it and testing it in the test net.

As the breeding smart contracts are ready we have finalized the UI part of horse breeding as well to make it fun and exciting for NFT horse owners.

Here is a first glimpse!

All the single ladies, put your hands up!

Single NFT horse owners, we have very good news for you as well! Besides regular breeding we will also allow players to rent their NFT horses for other players to breed! The owner of a NFT horse will receive a breeding fee of his choice for his stallion or mare!

The smart contract of the horse renting system is done as well and our lovely front end developer Katerina is making last touch ups of the UI side!

Make sure to check out the prospective mates for breeding in the DeRace horse explorer 🥰

All the breeding functions mentioned above will be functional on mobile devices as well, giving the players freedom to choose their preferred method of immersing themselves in the DeRace metaverse.

Generation 1 horses 🐎

Yes, you heard that right! With breeding, Generation 1 horses are coming to town! In a few days, we will show you our first Generation 1 horse from the test net!

Isn’t that exciting?

Major races upgrade

Our game developers have made major upgrades in our races this week. As many of you already noticed, there are some sweet changes that make the experience even more delightful:

  • New camera angles to appreciate the races
  • Follow-my-horse function to keep an eye on your champion
  • Collapsible race information table so you don’t get distracted while watching your horse take the lead

Besides all the updates, we took this week to look into how we can improve some minor, but very important aspects of spectating the races. We have focused on synchronizations in web browsers, so players don’t experience any delays in real time races. Our goal is flawless player experience!

Hippodromes 🌴

Prepare for a tropical heatwave, because we are finalizing the second hippodrome and preparing it for launch! Mountains, palm trees and new synthetic surface is coming to our metaverse shortly!

In addition to that, our metaverse will get another expansion really soon as we are already working on a third hippodrome!

We have started a very active research and are crafting the primary build of the third hippodrome! It’s no secret that the third hippodrome will have a turf surface!

It’s extremely exciting for our NFT horse owners as the algorithm works a little differently on each surface and that means that your horse that is not performing well on dirt might be a champion on turf!

Exciting? Here’s more!

Keep an eye on our channels, because we will reveal our Mystery NFT in few days 👀
