Open Testing

The open testing period for dCrops starts today. During this time, the time required for crops to mature and the cooldown for them to be planted again have been halved and each season will last for 7 days instead of 15 days. This is done so that we would be able to test 2 seasons in 2 weeks which will help us test the reward system.

The testing period will likely run for 14 days in case we are able to find and solve any major bugs, after which the game will fully launch.

Why should you help us test the game?

During the testing phase, the reward pool will start at 25000 CROP tokens for the first season. It will then decrease by 5% for the next season. This will continue till the testing phase is in place.

The reward pool is there to incentivize players to help us test the game.

Once the testing is over, we will launch with a whopping 500,000 CROP reward pool. The rest of the packs will be sold when the game launches.

In order to participate in the testing, you will need to have some seeds and a land to plant them in. Even those who didn't buy any packs will be able to participate in the testing phase.

Note: The purpose of testing is to find and fix bugs. In case anyone is seen to exploit a bug to their own material gain, any rewards accumulated by the player will be wiped out. If you happen to find a bug, please report it to us on our discord.

How to play?

The premise of the game is simple. The steps involved in the gameplay are:

  1. Plant seed
  2. Wait for seed to mature
  3. Harvest the crop. Note: A crop can only be harvested as long as the current season is the same as the season for that crop. For example, a spring crop like "Kale" can only be harvested if the season is still spring. If you didn't harvest it in the current season and it is now summer, then you will need to manually free the plot if you want to plant something else in it.
  4. Sell the harvested crop for "shares"
  5. Receive CROP tokens at the end of the season based on how many shares you have gathered in that season. Once rewards are distributed, the shares are reset to 0 for everyone.

Curses! If you'd given a days warning I could have properly planned around it to optimize!
Looking forward to checking tonight!

True! I was able to find some time to plant all my season crops.
Definitely made me wish I had bought more packs ;)

Do we get to keep the CROP tokens or are they removed at the end of the season?

You can keep them. Only harvested crops will be removed if you don't sell them before the testing ends since we don't want people hoarding crops that they harvest now to sell when the reward pool is larger.

Thanks for the info. I imagine they will be pretty hard to sell since everyone will be wanting to do the same. Should be fun though. 😁

Just had a thought . . . how will we tell which ones are the harvested ones and which are the originals?

When a crop is harvested, you can only see them in your inventory as they are not on hive-engine but they exist on our database. Selling those would mean they are burned and you receive "shares" which are then used to calculate how many "CROP tokens" you get at the end of the season.

OK. Thanks for the extra information. Have copied and pasted it for when we get to the harvesting bit. 😊

Sweet!

The biggest issue that I'm seeing is lands not showing up as planted, but the seeds being put on cooldown.

Yeah, I have 37 crops planted, but 40 seeds in cooldown.

What would be nice is a countdown timer for the season we are in.
