Grantee updates

Building the Motion Mine

We have been focused around interviewing DCL citizens, and establishing our design for the building. We are about a month away from completing this phase and being able to unveil the MotionMine facility!

We aren’t quite ready to show the design, but know that we are taking every detail into account in terms of what people need and want. So happy that people are behind us, we really are determined to make something spectacular!

We haven’t released any of the vested funds as of yet, as a note, purely working from a research and design stage before releasing them to the programmers and in world builders.

Improving the Toolbox Smart Item In Builder

You can see and use the progress on this grant on GitHub.

The Toolbox CE smart item features have grown way beyond my initial plans when I first proposed it. Every time I think I come to a stopping point I think of some other use case/feature to add. Auto-start an action, continuous face/follow player, and applying a force to an entity are just a few features I have planned for the near future.

At this point, I am faced with an issue I did not foresee, not enough screen space for all the configuration options (without scrolling). I want to again thank everyone who voted to make this grant possible. Happy Building!

DCL Knowledge Base HQ - Educational Website (Completed)

The DCL grant has given me a motivational push to focus more efforts and polish up the Decentraland guide on my website!

I had kind of abandoned it from updates before the grant, but now it is updated, polished and helping folks learn about DCL in a non-intimidating fashion.

Ask: share it / spread it around to help educate and onboard more people to DCL!

Open source DCL utility library that makes many things easier

The grant author largely delivered the work as the grant was posted and continues to update the deliverables by expanding the library of utilities. You can see and use some of the grant deliverables on GitHub.

Video Editor for The Decentraland Report (Completed)

The Grant for The Decentraland Report Video Editor ($500) was requested for 10 videos to be edited and published featuring Decentraland Content. Here is a list of all the content we have published since:

We estimated we could complete 10 videos and managed to get 14, not to mention a couple other edits as well but not directly in DCL, however related.

Long term game “Project G”

Nothing more to share beyond the description in the proposal. It’s a multiplayer game that everyone will love.

We want to give thanks for the overwhelmingly positive response!

The New Babylon - An Exploration of New Metaverse City Prototype

Grant updates are being provided via Twitter and the Decentraland Forum. The build appears to be making satisfactory progress and the team is very active.

Hiroto Kais Decentraland Builder Tutorials

You can view some of the grant deliverables on YouTube. You can attend the live events in-world at Hiroto Kai Museum (82,-149).

We are currently in our third week of wearable Wednesday! A weekly hour lesson at my place in Decentraland! We also have now had about 12-15 videos uploaded to YouTube to help people make wearables as well! Seems to be super responsive having about 40-60 people come each week and now up to 50 subs on Twitter! More and more attention each week!

Ask: If people have any questions about wearable building they can ask questions to be featured in the lessons!

Decentraland <> Rarible Protocol Integration

No Github repo has been set up yet.

The goal is to implement the set of tools [outlined here] in a library for Decentraland, where it will facilitate the creation, minting and sales of NFTs.

The in-world DAO governance forum

The base layout of the hub and the amphitheater is done, with walkthroughs taking place this week. An external API is generating image textures based on recent votes in the DAO. Next week we’ll expand the API to handle scene state and build most of the interactive entities.

That wraps up the active community grants report. Go to the DAO Grant category to see and vote on proposed community grants.
