Omega: Final Season [42,800 STEEM]

in #nextcolony6 months ago (edited)

Season V has started. This is the final season on the Steem blockchain. We will abandon Steem after this season.

The whole project will be open source after the final season. So everyone is free to use the code for a new project or to continue NextColony on the Steem blockchain. Shortly after the last season is over, we will shut down the servers and insert the GitHub links in this post.

In the last four seasons, the fabulous sum of 27,200 STEEM has been given out to the settlers and raiders. In the final season, another 42,800 STEEM will be distributed - a total of 70,000 STEEM. This is quite an impressive number, of which we are very proud.

Okay, let's start the grand final season...

Sort:  

Somewhat sad that the project will close its doors. :/

Under which licence do you plan to publish the source code?

Not somewhat sad, but very disappointed. NextColony should migrate to the Hive blockchain, as many other dApps done. Now I feel like I wasted my time on the game, because I have not achieved anything meaningful in the game. I only upgraded buildings and skills. I have not even had the chance to build an Explorer ship to explore the galaxy and earn Stardust (SD). The Explorer ship requires level 20 ship skill, level 13 shipyard building skill, level 13 shipyard building skill. I started upgrading the ship skill from level 19 to level 20 literally now. It will take 08:37:08. Yes. 8 hours, 37 minutes, 8 seconds. The progress in this game is slow. So probably many other players are in similar shoes. The shutting down of NextColony is another huge disappointment on the Steem blockchain.

Y, I got lucky and had the chance to buy me some explorers in the market. Can send you one as farewell gift :)

But generally spoken I guess we cannot blame Steem for this one.
Feel like NextColony got itself in a corner, where bigger changes are needed to create a refreshing wind of stardust.
Maybe the devs lack the vision or time, or both (no blame though!, it can be very hard) to move on.
So it might be best to open the code to the community, maybe someone can step in.

There could be many reasons, yes. Hopefully someone will step in.
Maybe they (the current, original developers) should have asked the community first, and they probably could have arranged some things to make it sure, for example a few other developers would have took the project, and they would have continued with NextColony on the Steem blockchain. But maybe the NextColony will still continue on the Steem blockchain. It just/only needs good developers.

Edit: If your gift Explorer ship offer is serious, then I would like to accept it. Thank you.

Sure. Once I got a free mission spot and find out how to send it your way ^^
Guess I need your coordinates?

I am currently on the Alpha (P-Z09KUBTVJV4) planet. Coordinates: 439/-81. This is my first (and currently my only) planet in NextColony.

Distance (coordinates): 2032
Time needed (outward flight): 84:16:00:00
Arrival: 06/28/2020, 09:02:40

Erm... Guess I should not send you my Explorers o.O

The universe is vaste..

Yes, that would take a long time, but do not worry.
I successfully built my first Explorer ship in NextColony (on 2020.04.02).
The enhancing of the mission control skill is in progress, so I will be able to go on exploring missions soon.

Right, that's quite an important question. Open-Source'ing it via GitHub is one thing, but it's the license that matters. Unless it's an explicitly permissive license, noone will be able to legally use that code. Please consider GPL, LGPL, CC, MIT or similar.

MIT + CC BY-SA 4.0 might work. I'll let you know in 44 days.

Thank you for your reply :)

Season ends in 12:21:44:55 ?

13 Days?

44 days.

Edit: Jarunik's nc-client seems to have a display error. The main-client counts.

Dear @oliverschmid,
no Stardust from Steemengine is shown in NextColony wallet, today.

Am besten nutzt du aktuell Steem Engine direkt, um von Steem Engine nach NextColony zu senden. Das geht am schnellsten. Einfach:

Wallet > Send tokens (icon rechts)

Dann an den Account nextcolony.exch senden, die Memo kannst du leer lassen.

Oh vielen Dank Oliver!!!
Du hast mich damit sehr glücklich gemacht.
Das Börsenproblem hat mich echt in Schwierigkeiten gebracht. Ich dachte schon, die letzte Season geht an mir vorbei. Und weißt du was?

ICH HABE ENDLICH MEINEN DRITTEN PLANETEN GEFUNDEN!!!

Während ich schlief, ist es passiert. Hast du gesehen, wie lange ich den gesucht habe? Egal, was demnächst in NC passiert. Dieser Planet war jetzt wirklich das Allergrößte, was bis jetzt im Spiel gelaufen ist.

😍
Ich war schon happy mit meinem Beta-Planeten ^^

Good luck everyone!

So big prize!

Thank you guys for all your work over the year. I really love your idea and game.

Amazing game, you did a great job...
Let's hunt some Yamatos to finish in style.

Awwwww, just when i'm starting to be able to mass produce armies. :(
I don't blame you though, no one could predict the outcome of the Justin Sun sutuation.

Definitely wish I learned about this sooner!

Resteemed :-)

Haha, but April 1st is some days away from now.

Woww Good Luck

why not migrate over to hive?! wasted my time here :/

Damn This Sucks!!!
I'm a huge fan of the game. So far I've managed to explore myself 11 planets. I had a great time with the game. Hope someone would continue development after making it open sourced.

Its been a fun game and a great proof-of-concept. However its also a perfect example of putting something on a blockchain that would be perfectly fine in a regular database, connected to a token for in-game purchases/rewards.
