The latest developments and updates on The Sandbox gaming platform

As we apply the final tweaks for The Sandbox Marketplace’s initial release, the game’s latest developments are heading towards creating a rich gamemaker experience that will allow players to create amazing experiences with intuitive tools for customization that will make The Sandbox universe truly unique.

From some very useful additions in our marketplace that will list scarce NFTs, to important features that will provide players a way to save the LAND creations, here are the latest developments The Sandbox team has been working on.

The Sandbox Game

Land save

Terraforming LAND using special terrain modification tools is one of the key features of The Sandbox game. While a large variety of features and terraforming tools to create amazing experiences and games will be available, being able to save your progress is also an important part of the process.

This latest development will allow local version saves of your LAND, allowing you to create multiple of your terrain that you can choose from when you want to publish your experiences.

Emissive Assets

One of the goals for The Sandbox has been to offer simple and straightforward features that enable users to customize their worlds and create game experiences.

Toward this goal, the emissivity of assets will allow creators and players to create assets that can have additional visual effects when used in game. Along with the ability to create models, skeletons, and animated assets that can be turned into NFTs through our Marketplace, VoxEdit also now allows emissivity on assets to be selected in game.

As we prepare the next specialized tools for creating amazing experiences, the final tweaks are coming together to give players access to customization tools for terraforming their LANDS and game experiences.


Scarcity filter

As our Marketplace displays a large variety of categories from which you can choose, including the type of NFTs that you want (such as static or animated assets), this latest addition will allow you to filter assets based on scarcity.

Because of the diversity provided by user generated content, not all the assets will have the same quality, animations, size, or playability as the NFTs on the Marketplace shop. Given this fact, the latest feature added in the Marketplace will allow you to browse those assets that are more likely to have more quality, rarity, or playability based on scarcity — or on the contrary, enable finding those more common assets that might be useful.

You can also choose to follow any creators to be notified when they upload new NFTs, and also add any existing assets as favorites to be displayed on your profile.



While the latest developments have greatly improved the tools that can be utilized to create amazing models and animations within VoxEdit, our team is also focusing on the user interface to improve the overall experience artists and creators will encounter while using our software.

New tools and features are coming to the modeler section for improvements, as well as essential additions in the rigger in conjunction with the latest implementations.
