Mining and exploration game R-Planet will add a new chapter to its development in two weeks with the introduction of land. They will organize a land sale on April 15th. In a blog post they revealed there will be land parcels for sale consisting out of four types of soil.
During the first land sale R-Planet will sell 5,000 plots. According to the blog post only trusted members of the community will be able to buy some of these lands. They will create certain tasks that need to be fulfilled, before gamers can buy the land.
In total the land sale will offer two types of packs. They will offer 2,000 small packs, which cost $50 and contain one land parcel. There’s also the big pack, which costs $150 and offers three plots of land. The big packs are interesting, because these have an increased chance of containing a piece of rare land.
Rarity is determined by the mining power from a plot. For example, 100 mining power is common, 120 uncommon, 140 rare, while 200 mining power for legendary lands will be the most valuable. Players can upgrade their land by combining elements created in the generator.
R-Planet is a game on the Wax blockchain. They launched their project with the ability the acquire AETHER by staking other NFTs in the Wax ecosystem. Players could then use that AETHER to acquire basic elements, and these then need to be used to find resources. For example, combining two earth and two water creates mud.
A land parcel contains one basic elements in their soil, out of four possible options: Wecanite, Waxon, Caponium or Enefterium. By extracting those resources, players will be able to build fighting robots to defend their colonies.
What is R-Planet?
The story from R-Planet is about finding planets where we can live. Humanity will pick Mars, but this requires research and testing. That’s where the NFT elements come into place. Combining these will allow humanity to discover more elements, and maybe solve the puzzle. Players will be staking NFTs, mining AETHER, buying and trading these basic materials, using them to create something new, and then the cycle continuous.
We’ve already seen the staking mechanism. The basic materials have been sold and will soon come into play. In the near future R-Planet will introduce mining tools to enhance the mining activity, as well as a way to swap fungible tokens.
Ultimately R-Planet: Evacuation is just the first phase of the game. The roadmap for R-Planet goes a lot further. After this first phase will come Colonization, during which there will be a land sale and the construction of buildings. In addition we’ll be mining on Mars, and there will be a gaming element. The third phase will be Conquest, during which players will discover a hostile enemy. There will be a sale of characters, and the construction of robots and vehicles.
