The external funding initiative has ATMTA as its subsidiary. The subsidiary will focus on three essentials: the Solana Foundation Grant and blockchains in Layers 1 and 2. Lastly, there will be high-level negotiations with several venture capital firms, including funds for cryptocurrencies and gaming.
Earlier, we mentioned an upcoming DAO community consultation. The function of the Star Atlas DAO is primary. The community will get together to highlight how the galactic economy will become stable with active participation on their part. In addition, this phase also entails the timeline and details of all other initiatives.
The first section of the Star Atlas golden era game manual debuted on November 19. Therefore, explorers can get a detailed look and perspective into the upcoming game.
The Golden Era Start Sequence: Behind The Curtain
Every Faction, DAC, organization, and captain will attend the most important event in the galaxy’s history. This follows the signing of the Treaty of Peace by the Council of Peace. The leaders of the three main factions, MUD, ONI, and Ustur, have agreed to move on with an aggressive plan. The plan is to stabilize the civilized galaxy as underlying tension and open conflict expand throughout the medium-risk zone.
The COP agreed to launch the plan by auctioning off deep space research equipment at drastically reduced one-time promotional prices. The COP undertook this action to unite the whole Star Atlas community.
Since the Convergence War, a small stockpile of other unique ships lay dormant in secret Council harbours. In particular, the Council’s Titan Class ships—the galaxy’s fiercest predators—will be up for bid in this exclusive auction. The stockpile will also be made available at discounted prices.
Following this multi-week auction, the Council of Peace will sell some interests in planetary claims. The interests, including land and private quarters on the Central Space Stations, can house any species in the galaxy. This will give owners an exceptional opportunity to place their homes in prestigious areas across the entire globe.
The Council will summon the inhabitants of the stars to take a stand. They will launch the Golden Age of space exploration as a wave of dark emotions will threaten to destroy order.
Part 1: The Flight of The Titans
Part of ATMTA’s sales plan focused on a unique class of assets known as simply “the titans” is now public. It is part of the multi-pronged campaign to secure short-term cash for developing the Star Atlas project.
The word “titan” evokes respect and awe all around the galaxy. These enormous beasts of metal and destruction can destroy whole fleets and even worlds singlehandedly. They will undoubtedly impose order wherever they choose to go in this vast universe.
Each faction will only choose from one titan model as part of the current promotion. The estimated number of minted titan ships will rise to 18 subsequently. Click here to check the titan division and base price of titan ships per the four-week discount plan.
Most importantly, each Titan ship will generate ATLAS within SCORE at the VWAP of five million USDC. Additionally, each Titan purchased will entitle the owner to a special commemorative ship skin, signifying involvement in this momentous occasion. This plan will likely go into effect on November 21, 2022.
Part 2: The Harbors of The Convergence War
“Our Path Towards Tomorrow” will focus on ships whose total supply sales are under 1.5% of their mark. The lore of the galaxy refers to this fleet as the surviving pieces of the captured armament. The factions employed them during the Convergence War.
Some users will, however, participate in a unique acquisition scheme that includes discounts and airdrops of personalized skins. This will depend upon them choosing ships from this category during the sales event.
Star Atlas will airdrop one bonus ship of the same kind for each ship purchased based on a snapshot. This will satisfy the people of our community who purchased these ships at their original price. This plan will commence on November 21, 2022.
Part 3: The Claim Stakes and The Colonization of the Galaxy
The third section of Our Path Towards Tomorrow deals with another development in the Star Atlas Start Sequence plan. It entails the sale of claim stakes, the equipment required for the exploration and settlement of the metaverse.
Claim stakes are tangible items that must be brought to a planet to stake a claim to a plot. Claiming a planetary plot bestows the owner access to extracting available local resources. Claim stakes will be offered in 5 tiers: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary.
These elements of extraterrestrial infrastructure will be helpful as soon as SAGE launches on the Solana mainnet. Claim stakes will be crucial to extracting resources from planets and producing engaging economic gameplay loops. Production will involve using mining drills and power plants.
During this release of Star Atlas, it will be possible to buy space stations, mining drills, and power plants. In the middle of December, all information on these sales prices, supplies, and duration will be available.
Part 4: Central Space Station land claims
There is one thing all races and factions can agree on. That is the sensation you get when you step foot on your property for the first time. This is especially true if the blockchain enables you immutable and guaranteed ownership rights.
The news of Star Atlas’ first-ever land claims offering will excite many explorers. Players will be able to construct homes with cargo storage space inside the station. Moreover, they will improve their ability to create resources and customize habitation, including command terminals, pet houses, and landing pads.
Tranches (groupings) of plots will debut with a discount of 10% on the entire amount of land available. At the end of each wave, these reductions will no longer be valid. Instead of buying a specific property, players will buy the claim to a certain type of plot. When the properties are finished, the selection procedure will start.
The cosmetic land claims will have six layers. Depending on the parcel size, these will be given the labels T0, T1, T2, T3, T4, and T5. Every plot in this release will come with a building, structure, or hab. This will be despite future land being provided unimproved and habs being acquired individually.
Community Update: External Funding
The ATMTA actively seeks funding from other sources despite the bear market and challenging macroeconomic conditions. Any MUD venture capital business, investment fund, or other prospective funding partners should understand that now is an exceptional time.
ATMTA is optimistic about the future of the Star Atlas ecosystem, defined by breakthrough software solutions. An example is F-Kit, a passionate and committed global community and immersive game components like ships, surroundings, and interior spaces.
The Star Atlas team is pursuing financing options in the Solana Foundation awards grants, among others in the Web3 space.
The Role of the Star Atlas DAO
The Star Atlas DAO is the ultimate embodiment of the Star Atlas community and has considerable funding. It is responsible for receiving a portion of the galactic marketplace’s fees and selling resources for SCORE.
DAO intends to inspire discussion within the community. The discussions regarding whether and how the Star Atlas DAO engages with the Star Atlas ecosystem. More so, how it acquires ships to partake in SCORE or participates in the Star Atlas economy in other ways.
Here, Star Atlas looks to gauge public interest in this subject. Star Atlas deliberates on operating solely upon creating the framework to allow the community to participate.
Introducing the SAGE Game Manual
The initial release of Star Atlas’ WebGL deep strategy game SAGE is almost complete. It plans on making it available to the general public in the first quarter of 2023. Explorers, through the manual, will understand how the SAGE galaxy’s economy functions.
The document delves into several topics that the Star Atlas community may find interesting. Resource management, fighting, levelling up, and resource management transfer from SCORE to SAGE will pave the way for future interactions.
Players will thoroughly comprehend the fundamental ideas underlying the Star Atlas economy, including “Resource Hardness,” “Resource Richness,” and “Resource Usefulness.” Additionally, they must comprehend the Loyalty Points-based system used to determine their ATLAS earnings.
The Star Atlas Golden Era battle has already begun, as previously mentioned. A shrewd captain will make the most of the brief time left for preparation. He will learn as much as possible about the intriguing and strategic gameplay mechanics now unveiled to the community.
