Cool Pets Game Information Updates

undefined

  • It is difficult for the team to give a fixed release date for the upcoming Cool Pets game.
    • Polygon is still having issues related to the fork.
      • The Polygon did do a patch fix and progress is being made.
      • The team is still considering flipping to a new chain, but it could lead to new, unknown issues.
  • A public beta test is coming soon.
    • The team selected applicants via a Google form.
    • The participants will get fake Cool Cats and the rewards will be increased significantly so the team can stress test the system.
    • The team is looking to fix functional issues with the system.
    • The existing beta testers from December are automatically added to the first round of beta testing because they already know the process.

$MILK Disparity for Cool Cats and Pets

  • Xtremetom talked to the community about $MILK disparity (i.e. Cool Cats earning $MILK while the game is down and Cool Pets not being able to generate $MILK via quests)
  • Here are possible solutions:
    1. The team could do an airdrop for Cool Pets that gives boxes or items to Cool Pets. 
      • The team wants to make up for the Cool Pets time loss due to the game being down.
      • It doesn't create an excess amount of $MILK flooding the system.
    2. The team could increase the output of quests, so more $MILK is generated per quest.
      • This would create a surplus on $MILK within the system.
    3. The team could also reduce the cost of boxes.
      • This is effectively the same as increasing the output of quests.
    4. Cool Pets could passively earn $MILK, similar to Cool Pets.
      • The game will always go down for maintenance, and this could help Cool Pets owners during those times.

Q&A Session

In this section, Q indicates a question and A indicates an answer (speaker in parenthesis).

This is a summary, not verbatim.

  • Q: How many beta testers do you think you'll get through? (Nadz)
    • A: We're aiming to add 100 beta testers a day. We're going to test the system, and if there is a bug found, we will fix the bug and move onto the next group. We need to test volume. We want a lot of people doing the same quests at the same time to see how the system works. (xtremetom)
  • Q: Can't we just reset all of the $MILK and start the game over when it comes out? (Nadz)
    • A: It is in the smart contract. I can do that. There still is a natural delay in the game because you can only interact with your Cool Pet five times per day. There is no advantage to making it to final form early. In that regard, nothing is really lost. We are looking at ways to inject features that will consume the excess $MILK. We will be adding new features for $MILK as the game progresses. (xtremetom)
    • A: We've been building the new feature in parallel with the game, even with the Polygon issues. This next small piece is going to be really exciting. That is going to solve a lot of concerns around fun and having too much $MILK. But the other thing is that this is stage one. The game is not to just get your Cool Pet to final form. That's effectively, "welcome to the game." What happens after that... there is going to be so much more after that. (Lynqoid)
  • Q: Can you go into more detail about what a simple quest would typically be? (poretixx)
    • A: I'll be honest, it is simple right now. Building a more complex system takes at least a year. It is a beautified staking UI. You click the button, the game tells you a story about the outcome, and shows you your rewards. The fun of it is to pick the quests that work the best for you. With bonuses and elements, common quests could have better payouts than rare quests. (xtremetom)
  • Q: Can you simply explain what is happening with the Cool Cats game? (insuranceguyE)
    • A: We are a slightly different NFT project. We have solidity contracts you have to sign. With most projects, that interaction happens through their website. Most projects don't pay for the gas. We wanted to make the interaction with our gaming system as frictionless as possible. One way for us to do that is for us to pay all of the gas. We decided to run on another chain, not Ethereum. But it's actually quite confusing to change your MetaMask from Ethereum to Polygon. There is no real nice way to convert from ETH to MATIC, either. In order for us to pay the gas, we have to handle transactions for the users. When you interact with our game, you send a message from the front end to our back end and ask us to please carry out the request for you. And we have to process those requests. There were some issues with our backend where transactions weren't happening smoothly. And that's where we were seeing issues. And that's where we are right now. (xtremetom)
    • A: We're trying to push and do something that is unique. And we're running into issues with our system and the services we are using. (Lynqoid)
    • A: We're at the mercy of the Polygon blockchain. Even if we were ready to launch right now, Polygon is constantly going up and down for maintenance. It would be a bad time to launch. (xtremetom)
  • Q: Has your team hired a game designer? (Pixlet)
    • A: We have a game designer who came over from Microsoft, yes. (xtremetom)
  • Q: What are Cool Cats plan over the next year after Cool Pets? (yeeeeeee)
    • A: You'll be able to get a house, craft furniture, buy more land, mine gold, chop wood -- there is a lot more stuff we want to build out. In terms of a roadmap, we have to take into consideration with Polygon or whatever chain we are on. We have goals we want to set for ourselves, but we can't guarantee time lines. Our system lets us do micro transactions. There could be crafting and boss fights. We're just going to keep adding to the Cooltopia game. There could even be new tokens that come out. Maybe there is a new land in Cooltopia that doesn't use $MILK but uses $GEMS. Who knows? We're aiming for housing, for a new battle system, and more. (xtremetom)

* A long discussion on $MILK accumulation during the game delay took place during the Q&A session. The team is still undecided and to avoid further confusion within the community, details will not be posted here.
