Hello, community. I see a big part of the community working on games, and while I think it’s great, I think we are missing one of the most important activities: events.
The thing with events is that there is a lot of potential that can be unlocked but we are most of the time doing the same thing: a streaming screen and a musician. And if that was not enough, we also enable auto-dance, one of the most (in my opinion) pathetic implementations that it’s just another way of faking interaction.
How is possible we have this 3D environment where we could allow tons of interactions, and all we do is stand in front of a screen? It makes no sense.
There are multiple reasons why this is happening: one could be that some people are too comfortable to innovate and the other one is that it’s extremely hard from a technical perspective if you are not a developer. Believe it or not, there are multiple events that are being hosted by non-techie people, using the builder.
With this idea in mind, the point here is to basically create a web panel where ANYONE can manage his land and create different narratives through interaction. It needs to have a bunch of features integrated such as teleporting, spin wheels, streaming, and more.
It also needs to be modular and let anyone create their own plugins. Also, we need to make sure it’s possible to install it using the builder (through smart items) and needs to be 100% free and Open Source so anyone can install it on their own server. But: I would also like to publish a hosted version on my website just to make sure it’s accessible to anyone who doesn’t know how to host it. In that sense, the DAO needs to cover all the server costs of this too.
I think we can start with 6 basic tools: teleport (you can teleport a player to specific coords inside your scene), message (to display an announcement in the middle of the screen), spin wheel (this could be useful for giveaways or to take random decisions), countdown (to enable a countdown inside DCL), screen (to manage a screen inside DCL) and a poll so people can vote.
After we achieve this basic stuff, we add more stuff:
Discord integrations with your DCL scene
Controlling lights inside your scene to make a show of lights that could be awesome with a DJ
The possibility of extracting the chat of your scene and adding it to your stream so you can also display it on Twitch/YouTube.
There are tons of things we can achieve. And by making this 100% free and idiot-proof, we should be able to convince almost everyone who hosts events to start using it.
If a feature cannot be integrated due to Decentraland limitations, we can also find developers who push code to GitHub, but in general, the vast majority of ideas can be implemented right now.
Now, how do we pay for this? using the DAO. I already have enough contacts to make it pass, I just need to create a team who wants to build this. Everyone will get compensated, and at the same time, we improve this platform a lot.
This is also can be a good precedent for doing changes through the DAO and not waiting for The Foundation to solve them.
There is no need to create a business model here, the money will come from the people who host events. By making them better, more people should stay here.
I need people interested in collaborating (developers, mostly) >>>
A good thing is that most of the features I want to add are scattered across multiple GitHub repositories.
P.S.: sorry for the hiring clickbait, it’s partially true.
P.S. (2): It should also be possible to give access to your personal panel to other members. Maybe we can also implement a permission system where you can create roles so another user is only allowed to spin the wheel, for example.
P.S. (3): one last time: 100% idiot-proof, free and Open Source.
- Cool idea, I support it
- This is crap
- Invalid question/options
