Should the following $33,600 grant in the Platform category be approved?
Maintain, update, and improve https://genesis.city, a top-down map of Decentraland.
This is an extension of the previous grant:
We’ll continue maintaining the website, running the mapping script weekly, and improving the product.
33,600 USD in DAI
In the past six months, we made significant progress. Here are our main updates:
Genesis City Map Integration to DCL:
We collaborated with the Foundation on our map’s integration to Decentraland. Now you can navigate our map on Decentraland when selecting “Satellite View”.
Night Mode Layer:
You can explore Genesis City under Night Mode! We will let the image to talk for itself:
Land Info Modal:
When you click on a parcel it shows if the land is for sale or rent, at what price, a link to the marketplace and it displays the image from the official client’s map.
Land Sale/Rent Layer:
We created a new layer showing lands available for sale or rent. Clicking on a parcel displays if it’s for sale or rent, the listed price, and a direct link to the marketplace.
Enhanced Permalink System:
Permalinks now include your selected layers and status so you can share specific map views. E.g. You can now share a link with the Points of Interest layer enabled.
Users can right-click on any broken coordinate, select “Report,” and it will be automatically reported.
Adjustments to the “Recent Changes” Layer:
We’ve tweaked the “Recent Changes” layer to offer a clearer view. The red markers that show changes are now more transparent so users can still see what is on the land.
Finally, we improved our project’s maintenance processes and stability. We paid off some technical debt, fixed bugs, and improved our database backup system.
We remain committed to engaging with our community and continue to receive valuable feedback from our users, including requests for new features and improvements.
We will request further grants in the future if the community continues to be happy with our work.
We will update the map weekly for 6 months. Once that time has elapsed we will request another grant.
Here are some of the projects in our roadmap:
- Land ownership layer.
- Display weekly events.
- See what’s nearby a location (eg. display info of events, POIs, etc).
- Street view.
- Land rating system.
- Isometric views.
- Allow users to upload photos of lands.
- Staff picks.
- Layer showing frequency of land updates.
- Percentage of land development (user feedback).
- Include missing parts of Aetheria (user feedback).
- Display the bus routes.
- Monthly/weekly treasure hunt.
- Search bar.
- Bookmarks/favorite destinations.
- Content age heatmap.
- Geolocated comments.
- Historical view of the entire map.
- Metamask log-in for displaying user-owned lands.
- Livestream of virtual cameras from certain points in DCL.
- Design tweaks.
- Performance improvements (e.g. Estates Layer optimization).
We will continue improving the website and mapping script based on this list and future suggestions by our community. Please let us know which features are the most important to you, so we can prioritize accordingly.
