News

In their latest weekly development update post, the DeRace team gave a recap of everything that’s been done during last week, while also giving us a sneak peek of the upcoming 5th hippodrome for the NFT horse racing metaverse.

One of the things that marked last week was the release of the DeRace API 1.0. This makes it possible for community members to contribute to the blockchain title by developing various tools that can help players in one way or another. The relevant documentation can be found here, while those who want access to the API will have to apply through the registration form linked in the official post.

The developers have also continued work on the Hippodrome Management System (HMS), putting focus on “automating the distribution of the additional prizes.” This system will be used by holders of hippodromes to host tournaments and set up their own custom races where they can also add a prize pool that gets distributed the way they set it to. Once the system officially launches, owners will, according to the latest update, have the option to deposit $DERC tokens, DeRace NFTs or Sugar Cubes into the prize pool of a tournament or specific races. These prizes then get sent to the in-game wallets of the winners after the end of a tournament or race.

When it comes to tournaments, the developers have stated that they have finalized “the design and the logic for our upcoming tournament feature” and that these competitions will be placed in a separate section in which all the current and upcoming competitive events will be easily visible. Hosts will have the ability to include “various tournament details such as customized banners, tournament description, prize pool” and more.

As for the 5th hippodrome, the developers shared a work-in-progress image of the latest racetrack, which can be seen above. This winter-themed, night-mode only track has a synthetic surface and most of the 3D objects now present, with the team having “even modeled the preliminary lighting of the racetrack.”

For this week, the developers will focus on “completing the 3D element placement, adjusting the hippodrome lighting and beginning to work on the northern lights.” Once everything is ready, they will put it up on testnet to make sure there aren’t any major issues before officially releasing it.
