Dhingia Builds proposes Dhingia HQ, user-empowering project in Decentraland, extrapolated from a successful demo launched in Arpril 2023. Dhingia HQ integrates a unique crafting system where users gather various crafting resources, or “Craftons,” and use them in machines to create personalized 3D builds, assets, wearables, and custom 1/1 Dhingia Build Passes. These user-created entities not only express individuality but significantly enhance Decentraland’s aesthetic and interactive landscape. Leveraging our expertise from designing over 80 unique builds including 35+ open-source structures to the Decentraland’s Awesome Repository.

Dhingia HQ is an evolution of our basic demo version including of a simple brick collection system, launched back in April 2023, which had a fantastic response from the community. Our aim is to bring a new level of creative freedom and active participation for the users in Decentraland, taking advantage of the vast possibilities of the Decentraland.
The core of Dhingia HQ is the innovative crafting system we’ve developed. Here’s how it works: Users can gather resources, which we call “Craftons,” from specific areas designated for harvesting resources within the HQ. Once they’ve collected Craftons, they can use our crafting machines to transform these resources into customised 3D builds, unique wearables, or personalised 1/1 Dhingia-Build Passes. The crafting machines come in different types, from basic to more complex, with upgraded versions available as users progress.
The items users can create with the Craftons are varied and diverse, ranging from common items to extremely rare ones. This means users can add unique aesthetic touches to their Decentraland experience. The rarer the materials users gather and the more they experiment with combinations, the higher the value of the items they can craft.
But Dhingia HQ is more than just a place to craft items. It’s an engaging space designed to enhance user interaction and exploration. We’ve got different areas designated for various activities: there are spaces to gather materials, hubs for crafting, areas with interactive puzzles and obstacle courses that reward users with prizes. To help users navigate and make the most of these areas, we’ll have AI guides providing insights about digital architecture, crafting, and more.
We will also create a Builder’s workshop, which is designed as a hub for all Decentraland builders, both experienced and aspiring. Here, they can gather to share ideas, learn from each other, and have meaningful discussions about architectural designs, virtual builds, and other related topics.
Beyond crafting and exploring, Dhingia HQ will also serve as a vibrant hub for Decentraland’s community and culture. We’re planning to customise and create new thematic builds on the HQ for every major festival and event in Decentraland. We have excecuted this during the Decentraland Metaverse Fashion Week 2023 (can check it out here - https://www.mrdhingia.com/post/dhingia-fashion-buzz-at-mvfw23-decentraland ), and it was a huge success. The event saw high engagement levels and positive feedback from the community, and we’re convinced that Dhingia HQ can be a key venue for celebrating the metaverse’s shared events and milestones.
Moreover, to keep the spirit of competition and achievement alive, we plan on hosting in-game tournaments. These tournaments will include various tasks and challenges, and winners will be rewarded with MANA, Mythic wearables, and other exciting prizes. This will not only encourage more user interaction but also contribute to the overall vibrancy and dynamism of Decentraland.
Lastly, our Dhingia-Build Passes add another dimension to user creativity. Users can craft these passes to commission custom builds for their personal use from Dhingia Builds, allowing them to leave their unique imprint on the Decentraland landscape.
Overall, our vision for Dhingia HQ is a user-centric, dynamic space that enhances the Decentraland experience by offering the opportunity to craft, explore, and celebrate the metaverse’s shared events.
