Ethermon Development Progress Report

Another Dev update coming in hot! It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve last published one of these. We’ve been keeping everyone in the loop through our community discord calls we have every week. Be sure to attend these gatherings if you can for multiple reasons. It helps our community expand and strengthen and also it is the best opportunity to discuss dev task items or relay any feedback and concerns.

The Ethermon Dev team has expanded in the last couple of weeks to accelerate both 2D and 3D game feature development. We want to be sure as development progresses, the community remains informed on what the high priority objectives are. Below is a breakdown of what features and additions to Ethermon are coming up next.

  • Off-chain to On-chain Convertor
  • Updating Adventure Mode for Re-rollout
  • Finalizing Item / Inventory Designs
  • WSS Integrations to Make Mons a Shareable Multiplayer Experience in DCL

Off-chain to On-chain Converter

We’ve made a recent announcement about the deployment of the On-chain converter. The rollout of this new feature is important for setting the ground work needed to allow any off-chain asset to be claimed in the future. For now it’s critically important for those players who purchased Ethermon Eggs while in the Decentraland Metaverse.

If you have any of the below Mons, be sure to go through the guidelines in this post to get through the claiming process.

Adventure Mode Coming Soon

The popular 2D game mode will be coming back very soon! The dev team is focused on completing some finishing touch ups to ensure a fluid re-rollout. More details will be announced in a dedicated post in the near future.

Finalizing Item / Inventory Design

We’ve discussed in the past how essential the inventory and looting systems will be to the overall 3D game. There are many factors that go into finalizing the design such as user experience, economics implications, and overall game progression. We’re nearing a point where we’ll be able to share more details with the community about these core game implementations.

Looting and Crafting are going to be very important elements to the gameplay, so several optimizations are being made to ensure a good user experience. Decentraland is a constantly evolving platform so as it improves, so will we as we will be able to leverage these improvements to make our game better.

WSS integration to create shareable experiences

One of the most important elements to achieving an mmorpg experience is the sharable nature of it. To achieve that requires the use of Web Socket Servers so anytime players share a space with each other, they will all be experiencing the same instance of events. This is incredibly important for many reasons as it will improve the social, competitive, and overall game engagement if done correctly.

We’ve moved this implementation toward the very top of priorities as we want to see this happening as soon as possible. The sooner we can all see each others Mon collection the better. Decentraland is designed for this so we need to execute on this vision so that those Trainers who have put in the time, money, effort to acquire rare and powerful Mons can properly experience and enjoy the 3D world we are building.

Overall there is a lot of work to do to get Ethermon to the state we want it in the metaverse. We’ll have many new features to rollout within the next few weeks resulting from the development sprints happening now in the team. Stay tuned for more updates dedicated to these feature rollouts.
