Should the following $93,000 grant in the In-World Content category be approved?
Vroomway strives to create the most engaging vehicle experience in the metaverse. We pride ourselves on our integration with the Decentraland platform and aim to foster that growth throughout our journey to create an interoperable game for anyone of any play style to enjoy. Racers can collect materials or win competitions to claim a Skin/Helmet Wearable NFTs that are paired with a matching Vehicle. Racers can also earn Vehicle Mods NFTs as well to decorate their vehicles. Expanding even more the self-identity expression. Vroomway is also a club for those who prefer a more socialized experience with our night club The Recharge. Whatever your play style is Vroomway is sure to have a zone just for you.
93,000 USD in DAI
This funding will allow us to stay compliant with the new Decentraland guidelines regarding the sunset of SDK 6 and migration to SDK 7. Here in a few months, the Decentraland Foundation will stop updating components in SDK 6 and only focusing on SDK 7. The rewrite from SDK 6 to SDK 7 is huge. Not only will we be in compliance with the standard, but our scene will perform ten-fold how it does now thanks to the amazing new SDK 7 components. This will also allow us to scale significantly easier and come much closer to sustainability.
Previously, we open sourced our robust Inventory and Leveling systems (in SDK 7) for the community and plan to open source every component of our game. We aim to provide plug-and-play repositories for anyone to use in their game. We know the hurdle of starting a new game from scratch and we want to help bridge that as much as we can. These open source pieces will be available through the Decentraland Awesome Repository just like the first set was. Being able to create new features will allow us to open source even more game components.
With this migration we will be able to make the following items SDK 7 compatible and open source:
- 3 Game Modes
- 20 Scenes
- Vehicle System
- Leveling System (done)
- Inventory System (done)
- Vehicle Mods (cosmetic attachments)
- Gathering System
- Loot System
- Reward System
- Crafting system
- Material Shop (buy & sell materials)
- 2D UI (extremely robust and dynamic)
- FUEL Purchase (on-parcel MANA transactions)
- Dynamic NPCs
- Timer & Timed Systems
- Infinity Engine (used by multiple projects in the community)
This will also allow us to continue to deliver a game people enjoy playing and stimulate the economy. Players have sold their Skins they earned for free for hundreds and hundreds of MANA. We’ve stimulated the Decentraland economy with over 14,000+ MANA in mint/secondary sales combined. We’ve had single skins sell for up to 400 MANA on secondary.
We have many features we want to introduce (and open source) such as:
- New Game Mode: Balloon Heist
- New Game Mode: Bumper Cars
- Battle Pass
- Professions: Gathering & Mileage
- Optional AI Opponents in Game Modes
- 20 Additional Vehicles (Skin or Helmet Wearables)
- New Missions: Daily, Weekly, Events
Plus many more collaborations and events!
In case you missed it, here is a video we made for a Town Hall update in June. We’ve done a lot more since this video too!
January23 - June23 Recap!
Month 1-3: SDK 7 Migration & Scene Update
We will migrate all of our current systems over to the new SDK 7 framework. This will bring a new scene as well since we’ve expanded our 4x4 estate to a 6x4 estate courtesy of the Foundation. This will include a refactor of 3 static scenes and 17 game mode scenes. This involves extensive front-end and back-end programming as well as setting up new server systems.
Month 4-6: New Features and Game Modes
We will develop and integrate our new features and vehicles to craft and claim. Integrate the new game modes and begin open sourcing every major component of our game for others to use. Focusing on increasing user retention and playability for the game. We will also host our third annual Grand Prix for the whole Decentraland Community to enjoy.
