Repository of more than 10,000 add-ons that can be assembled with each other, to create wearables in an easy way to attract new creators without knowledge of 3D modeling.
This repository would contain more than 10,000 add-ons that would automatically assemble with each other just by importing them, allowing new talented creators to produce high-quality and 100% functional wearables, without the need for knowledge of 3D modeling.
This will bring multiple benefits, it will attract new creators to Decentraland, it will facilitate the work of current creators, it will allow people with great talent but without 3D knowledge to start creating in the metaverse, it will increase the income of the DAO.
The creators prefer other platforms over Decentraland.
The fact that the user base on Decentraland is not growing is because new users have no incentive to join or stay on the platform.
The most important point is that many of them would want to build, and would do it in Decentraland if it were easy, however building in the metaverse requires mostly knowledge of 3D modeling, something that is an insurmountable barrier to entry for someone who has never used software like Blender, possibly more than 99% of potential users.
The proof that reflects this is that there are thousands of 2D image NFT projects that do not require advanced knowledge of any software, the success of this is because creating a 2D NFT is easy, while creating a wearable in Decentraland is difficult.
In 30 days the DAO receives approximately $20,000 in fees for the new wearables, paying a third of it to the curators and leaving a profit of close to $13,000 each month. However, many users do not and never will publish wearables because they do not have enough knowledge in 3D modeling.
Creating an add-on repository would incentivize creators and new users to create new original designs with add-ons that could be plugged together, which will serve as an encouragement for those who don’t know how to model in 3D.
This repository would consist of two types of add-ons, type 1 (10,000 add-ons) and type 2 (1,250 add-ons), making a total of 11,250 add-ons. The type 1 will be add-ons that can be assembled automatically, so that the user will be able to easily create a wearable avoiding all the difficulties that a 3D modeler has in its initial stages, this will increase the incentive on the part of users without knowledge in 3D modeling to create wearables. Type 2 will be easily assembled add-ons but will require the modification of some of their vertices.
If there is acceptance by the community, a request for a $126,600 grant will be published to develop this project. For those who wish to learn more about this project, I recommend that you review this document: https://fastupload.io/xKmdZ6AtL4vz8vx/preview
Facilitating the creation of wearables with a system of add-ons that can be easily assembled together, we will be able to encourage new users to create in Decentraland, achieving the following benefits:
- Attract new creators.
- Facilitate the creation of original wearables for users.
- More income for the DAO through the curators fee.
