in budget •  9 months ago

300SBD:

Hi all,

this is the STEEMPUNK-NET Lead Devs: @dehenne and @jedigeiss.
We are building a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game directly on the STEEM Blockchain, our first iteration of the game is already in open beta status, though there are a lot of features not yet developed.

Features already developed:

  • Login via Steemconnect v2
  • Character creation and progression process
  • Fighting Module
  • Battle results
  • Own external Website --> Link
  • Game statistics module
  • Beta items and graphics
  • Housing concept

Current Status

We have built up all infrastructure needed and the game is since 2017/11/27 in beta status. We have already got more than 100 players and a growing community in our official discord server.
We are currently fully concentrating on developing the housing module and also are thinking on a random encounter module to have more interaction within the game.
We are already attracting players from outside steemit and are intensifying our efforts with the progression of the development!
If you want to read more, here is our last weekly update

What are the next milestones

We have released a roadmap and a whitepaper explaining clearly what we want to achieve.

In short the next milestones are:

  • Creating and implementing the crafting concept
  • Creating and implementing the shop concept
  • Creating and implementing the monetization concept, first directly on the steem blockchain and after the release of SMT, directly using SMTs within the game (this will give us an enormous boost and impressive possibilities)

What will the 300 SBD be used for?

We will use that SBDs to push further and intensify the developmentof the game and also to improve the visuals within the game. Additionally it would help to shoulder the montly costs for running this game.
Advertisement is also on top of our list, but we will only start this with full force once the shop system has been launched.
We have been working on this for 8 Weeks now and we are a small development team consisting of 5 people. This SBD would allow us to pay a small amount to our developers(40SBD each)
And we would also use it to pay a part of the hosting cost in the future (100 Dollar a month, for how long this would last heavily depends on the SBD/USD rate)

We are already having a fantastic community, the logo and the following short intro video was created by @oendertuerk and a lot of other ideas and stories are flowing in!

Thanks alot for reading this, if there are any questions left please contact @jedigeiss or @dehenne on the discord or in steemit.chat

Thanks @jerrybanfield for this opportunity!

Kind regards

The STEEMPUNK-NET Team

malditos roedores...

With your permission @steempunknet @dehenne @jedigeiss, I haven't found any information in my language, so I have translated this post into Spanish.

https://steemit.com/spanish/@taitux/primer-juego-sobre-la-blockchain-de-steemit-steempunk-net .

I find myself translating the website into Spanish in order to make a guide if you don't mind...

Thanks for your work, I'm already one more player in the world of SteemPunk.

·

sure. man, we are appricated every help. It's a pleasure to have you with us.

I fully support the cause, but it's a bit unclear what you're are looking for regarding the 300 SBD...
Is this a call for funding? Are you looking for a donor?
Or did Jerry Banfield already donate those 300 SBDs?
Thanks for clarification.

·

Yeh i have the same questions...

·
·

hi all,
here is the originating post from jerry banfield where this is a reply to
https://steemit.com/budget/@jerrybanfield/introducing-steem-budget-proposals

·
·
·

Thanks, would really help to add a short explanation and this link to the post...

·
·
·
·

I already added it see the ps section under the post. Or should I make this more visible?

·
·
·
·
·

Yes, maybe you could use a hr and a br to make it more visible.

I would have started the first sentence with:

"Hi all,

we are asking for a weekly budget of 300 SBD following this offer by @jerrybanfield to help us with the server costs and further development of our Steempunk MMORP."

That would make it much easier to understand the reason for your post.

Well true @shortcut but Jerry was clear in his format he wanted to have the 300sbd as first words. I can put after that a clarification. And by the way it's not a weekly thing its currently only this 300sbd to move forward and relieve a bit the pressure of our shoulders
Kind regards
Jan

Thanks for clarification Jan. You see, I even got that wrong.. You still can use "350 SBD needed for development of Steempunks" as the fist heading... Btw: I just wanted to provide feedback to make everything more readable und clear. Hope you will get the 300SBDs, they are very well spended within the Steempunk project :-)

Thank you for this beautiful proposal and contribution to Steem! We are funding for 1,500 Steem in multiple payments with the first coming just now! We will just use Steem going forward for simplicity and the 300 SBD converts to about 1,500 Steem.

In honor of our soon-to-be houses, I hereby challenge you to a duel in-game ;)

I think Steempunk net has really helped get me back into Steemit, as it gives me something to do ON Steemit when I'm not writing articles or reading.

Plus, I usually end up reading a post or two when I go challenge someone !

Continue the good work !

come at me bro

I've downloaded the extension, but it doesn't allow to do anything except going to your website and to the extension download page.
How do I run the game?

·
·
·

I've pressed the SteemConnect Login button and the whole extension page went white

First, SteemConnect made an Update today. Maybe you've gotten into it.

Second, do you have installed some addons?

You've mentioned that there is an open beta, I'd love to try it out.
I checked your official website but I couldn't find a link to it.

·

Check link bellow, inside that article are the links, to install firefox or chrome addon to be able to play. How to play i haven't tried yet, but first step is to install the addon. Hope this helps you :-)

P.s.
If my reply helped you, you better don't attack me. If you do, you better don't win ;-)

I did check that post, but I do not get the steemconnect login screen after clicking on it. I'll try restarting my browser, maybe that'll help.

·
·
·

Make sure you dont have some sort of popup/add blocker installed, that may prevent the plugin from working

How to determine who is in the game and who is not? Can create a page?

·

it is already there see this link
:)

With 1,152.750 Steem sent now from @budgets and the Steem price having suddenly shot up to now $3.35 the 3 payments combined total almost $4,000. Will we consider this fully funded based on the proposal for 300 SBD?

·

Hey @jerrybanfield, sorry we have been deep in pre christmas drama and i did not see this question.
But yes you are right, this can be seen fully funded!
Thanks to all of you who made this possible! We are super motivated to bring something really worthwhile to the steem blockchain, enhancing the beta version that is already live.
Kind regards
Jan

·

Jan thank you very much for letting me know this was good enough to fund the project and that you are super motivated to keep developing!

Are there any videos that show the gameplay?

·

ehhhhhh, i saw a installation video from another user the last days
You can see a little bit how it is works:

Really love to support your idea but need more clarification of 300 SBD.
