Star Atlas Townhall #25 summary

star atlas news council

DAO – Governance

This has the highest priority!

They discovered an issue with determining vote weight:

  • People tend to stake multiple times
  • People will want to re-stake their POLIS emissions back into the contract
  • Knowing people will stake multiple times, the team anticipated difficulties with accurately measuring vote weight. So they are now implementing changes, which will lead to a modest delay.

Target date: end of February

There is also a team focussed on global polish.
This is a new division, and their effort will be perpetually ongoing.
Primarily: cleaning up tech debt and taking into account user feedback

Kicked off the development of their own market program.
More intuitive user interface, more gamer-centric approach (think in-game auction houses)
Target date: Q2 2022

CREAM

Major project and subdivided into 3 squads:

  • mining & extraction
  • crafting & materials
  • (new!) space exploration feature (using ships in different ways than just putting them into SCORE)

Target date: July

UE5

A lot of the visuals they shared and will be sharing are subject to change!

4 phases (David) – dev process flow

  • discovery: talk about what the project is, what it should be doing
  • exploration: wireframes, prototyping
  • validation: use prototypes and community feedback to help the team understand how we use those features
  • production

Target dates have been removed from the roadmap.
going forward: Inform on the phase the project is in. Before they release any dates, follow the process of the dev-workflow and then share the confirmed date.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #138

The past week saw the launch of the DAO Governance, with the first two proposals meanwhile having been opened up for voting! This has been the focal point of community discussions on Discord ever since the full PIP descriptions were revealed.

But perhaps much more interesting are additional details shared by Michael (CEO) concerning the upcoming Fleet Rentals (later this year).
