I recommend designing the first version without Parallel blockchains, as I dont even know the timeframe for that.

Also, please update OP with donation address. My donation is coming from the NXTcommunityfund, so the money is already there, no need for txid

I think the game angle is valid and a natural progression for virtual currencies on more than one level. But initially, i would like to see a virtual 3D high st. of vendors, exchange facilitators, service providers etc, that i can 'walk' into and interact and/or trade with, as well as other participants.
Last time i tried Second Life was years ago, so have no idea how doable or in-vogue this may be. Did they run into regulatory problems?
I just think it would serve the non gamers amongst us, and possibly offer an interesting slant for exchanging and moving value around, as well as exchanging information.

We will try that. This means that all operations will be done server side. However, the game will interface directly with the Asset Exchange, which will let player trade their items directly in real life, even when they are not in the game.

Hopefully the min. fee goes down to 0.01 soon.

Looking for talented devs and artists! Wink

Stereotype, this is excellent stuff. Just based on my own experience, there should always be a 'game within a game'. In other words, if you wanted to be a merchant, you could always look for arbitrage opportunities on the asset exchange and chat in game with other vendors. Your hands would never have to lift a sword or dodge dragon fire. Stay comfy by the inn's hearth, striking deals and building your own little empire. Smiley

Panda and I have chatted a little in regards to implementing a kickstarter-style tier system for bounty donators. These would be cosmetic rewards that wouldn't be available after game launch. Something like:

10 NXT - badge
100 NXT - cap
1000 NXT - cape
10000 NXT - beta access (?)

Do you think CfB or BCNxt may be more willing if there's a project like this that could leverage a parallel chain?

Why don't you just clone Huntercoin?

The game has been up for several weeks now.

Not to diminish huntercoin, but Nxtopia is all about Nxt's Asset Exchange. A completely user-driven crafting economy.

Sounds great.  Smiley Might even open a room out the back of the inn, for beer, hog roast, and wenches.....for a nxt fee, of course!

Depending on how we handle character death/respawning, these items may be also confer a quicker resurrection.

Things should be for sale in the game but there should also be a concept of work or time spent to create them and this should not just be possible to be bypassed by people with lots of currency.

i.e. someone can craft an item and its value would be based on how hard it would be to craft (time, chance of failure, complexity etc)

of course someone can then buy that item but the person who put the effort into creating it gets the benefit.

so someone with a big-wallet can get the item without spending the time and the person without the wallet can benefit from the time they spent crafting the item - which they can move into NXT and use in RL or re-use in the game for example.

Where games lose out is where people with the big wallets can jump in, bypass the hard work bit with no benefit to the people who are doing it the hard way.. This is why a lot of games lose out and eventually become unpopular.

I would like to see us solve this so people who can spend to advance, do this BUT the benefit goes to the people working in the game not the game owners/producers who can instantly create as many items as they like...

Chanc3r, I think both Panda and I are close to going to bed (I'm east coast, he's west, and it's already 7:30 AM), but sometime today/soonish you should really start bouncing ideas with us on IRC. You raise critical points.

edit -- just using EVE as an example, a rich player would not be able to spam space stations or titans on his own. Anything of value takes a commensurate amount of resources to craft. Some assets, like a fort, would require a corporation (guild) in order to reach material requirements.
