Alien Worlds has made some changes to the way NFT luck gets applied during the mining process. From this point forward users with rare tools and high NFT luck will actually have a bigger chance to find more NFT assets. They announced these changes over the weekend in a blog post.
Because of the way NFT luck worked, users with low NFT luck tools could still find reasonable amounts of NFTs. This had something to do with the fact that they could mine very often, and therefore increase their chances cumulatively. The new calculations in the background will lower the chances of bad tools to find expensive NFTs, while the NFT finding chances for rare tools will increase. In short: luckier tools are now actually more lucky.
The luck of each tool has been raised to a power of 1.3, which then gets divided by 2. The result is that smaller luck numbers give smaller results. For example, 0.5 luck to the power of 1.3 gives 0.4. Which means a luck of 0.2. While a luck of 20 to the power of 1.3 gives 49, which means a luck of 24.5. These resulting numbers (0.2 and 24.5) should be considered relative from each other, and therefore the card with 20 luck is now considerably more lucky.
When you’re looking at an Alien Worlds tools NFT, the luck number is in the bottom right. The number in the top left is the mining power.
More updates coming to Alien Worlds
Soon Alien Worlds will allow players to lease a spaceship, send it on missions and earn TLM for doing so. For every mission there will be a mission control center. This is basically a dashboard with statistics. Here you will find your Spaceship Power and Crafting Power. These two NFT stats benefit two elements of the game: the performance of your spaceship, and you ability to combine NFTs to create better items.
There are eight different missions. Each of them can have a different length: one week, two weeks, four or thirteen weeks. At the end of each missions, each spaceship receives an exclusive NFT game card related to that particular mission. These cards are issued on the Binance Smart Chain. There’s a maximum of five of each NFT game card per player. Collecting a full set of cards will create special advantages in the future of Alien Worlds.
Furthermore, Alien Worlds is also working on Thunderdome, a PVP battle royale mode we talked about before. The winner of the Alien Worlds Thunderdome will earn the largest rewards: a percentage of the TLM entrance fees and an NFT drop. Some minions eliminated in the final stages of the battle will also receive rewards along with their affiliated planets.
What is Alien Worlds?
Alien Worlds is an exploration and mining game in which players can own land, use tools and weapons, customize their avatars, own rare artifacts and have minions to use in battles. The game world offers a full economy where players battle for resources and value.
Players in this game world earn Trilium (TLM). This is a cryptocurrency token that bridges the Wax and Ethereum blockchain, allowing the economies of both chains to merge into one. Players earn TLM through mining, and can spend the tokens on betters tools and weapons. Landowners can also airdrop their own custom NFTs to players.
Once you own quite some TLM, you can stake this on a planet and vote in planetary decisions through their decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO. Players and planets all battle for TLM, resulting in competition and collaboration on different fronts.
Ultimately Alien Worlds needs to become a 3D game where avatars roam planets using tools to mine Trilium. Through terraforming, players should even be able to create events and parties on their own lands. There’s also a PVP element to the game, titled the Thunderdome.
