Owners of multiple pieces of land in The Sandbox will be able to glue all of them together into one small or gigantic estate. Development studio TSB Gaming announced that there are no limitations to the shape or size of the estate. However, two adjacent pieces of land are required.
During the previous land sales The Sandbox only considered a square with 3×3 land parcels an estate. This new update will instead allow users to create their own shapes without any real limitations.
Starting from Tuesday May 19th until May 26th there will be a competition. Multiple players need to work together to create a District. Winners will win a piece of LAND. Districts currently have no real game mechanic, but in the future it will be a way for land owners to create a common set of rules or a general theme across their lands.
What is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is one of the blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development. This particular virtual world is supposed to launch its beta test this summer, but before that time there will be one more pre-sale. During this pre-sale gamers, businesses and investors can buy virtual land with a discount. You can now register, to make sure you’re not missing out.
The virtual world of The Sandbox consists out of lands, and voxels fill up each of those lands. Visually it will remind many gamers of Minecraft, as both games have this Lego-inspired look to them. However, players are able to buy virtual land and implement any form of monetization. These virtual lands can become mini-games, adventures, virtual shops, extensions of actual webshops, a space for social gatherings, and so on.
TSB Gaming is providing free tools for developers, gamers and content creators to add and monetize content in the virtual world. Creators can use VoxEdit to make objects and avatars, while the upcoming Game Maker will allow users to add game rules to their virtual land.
