  • Customize & decorate your residencies.
  • Ability to own a Bike Parking Spot (travel throughout the city quicker than the average player).
  • Ability to own a pet (pets will give some minor in-game bonuses).
  • Daily Mailboxes provided to all NuCyber residents. Check your mailbox daily for potential WEB3 rewards, in-game items and more!
  • Ability to experience random interactions (Ex: Neighbor knocking at your door and you will have to make a choice — this choice can penalize or help you).
  • Build a NuBusiness directly from home.
  • Hire a Butler that can do a variety of activities for you.
  • Ability to host house parties!

What is a Random Interaction?

A random interaction can consist of different events that can happen while you are inside your apartment. Some of these interactions can benefit or hurt you depending on how you react to them.

Utility #6: Build a NuBusiness

Utility #7: Hire a NuButler

What is a NuButler

A NuButler is an in-house personalized NPC that will cater to all NuCyber residents. Your NuButler will have a few sets of options you can have him do.

  • Ability to help build. With your resident, you will be able to place items down which costs energy. If you allow him to help you build all energy used up to a limited amount of time/items will cost 50% of the original rate.
  • Ability to speak to him… maybe NuButler may tell you something interesting… he may just send you on different special quests with rare rewards if you are lucky enough!

Utility #8: Earn $BITS & Access to $BITS Ecosystem

What Are $BITS?

$BITS is a ERC-20 cryptocurrency token built on the ethereum blockchain. The primary use is to interact with the Gridcraft/NuCyber ecosystem and gaming world.

Stake to Earn $BITS

If you are a NuCyber resident, you will be able to stake to earn a cryptocurrency token known as $BITS. Simply visit https://gridcraft.net/stake and stake your NuCyber NFT to start earning $BITS. You will be able to earn ~288 $BITS per day by staking your NFT that can be utilized throughout the Gridcraft/NuCyber gaming world.

Early Game Mechanics

Gaming Mechanics

It’s very important to understand how the game actually works in order to fully understand the utility. There will be tons of activities, quests, minigames and progress you can make within the Gridcraft world (which includes NuCyber). Especially as development progresses, we can expect more advancement and a better experience for players to be created.

What is Energy?

Energy within the Gridcraft world is a temporary level bar (very similar to Stamina). If you do more things within the game world, your energy will deplete. Energy can be regenerated through various different tasks. It’s very important to understand how energy works because it’s crucial to advance within the game.

Three Categories of Activities That Use Energy:

  • Activities that advance your character’s levels, progress or assets within the game (USES ENERGY). Examples: Growing your NuBusiness, Doing quests for rewards, building within your plot, etc.
  • Activities that are fun without direct progress incentive to your character (DOESN’T USE ENERGY) Examples: Playing minigames, exploring/traveling around the world, chatting, etc.
  • Activities that regenerate your energy. Examples: drinking an energy drink or coffee, sleeping (being logged off), napping, dreaming (top SECRET concept), etc.

NuCyber Reveal + Rebrand

As you may know, due to the rebrand from Llamascape this extended reveal just “slightly”. We planned to reveal Llamascape right around now but with the unfortunate obstacles, we will be rebranding to NuCyber.

1:1 Luxury Apartments:

At the moment token ID #1–387 will be assigned the luxury apartment 1:1 but we’d like to reward the community and round the number up and 13 random residences will be assigned as a 1:1 and will gain all future benefits/perks. At the moment the perks aren’t explained yet but we plan to release the information during reveal to give everyone a fair chance to grab one. The perks will relate with increases in boosts within the game world, special treatment, bigger apartment and much more.

Outro

We are excited to build this out and have already started to create a lot of the V1 so we are ready for a playtest as mentioned above in the “Summary” section. We will continue to post updates and inform all future and current NuCyber residents of all developmental statuses.
