CropBytes Game

Game is Going Live – Get Ready Farmers !

Dear Farmers,

The game is going live soon.  So here is a post about the game play.

The features being launched initially are planting and harvesting crops, picking fruits from trees, feeding animals and collecting the extracts (egg, milk, wool and truffle).

All your assets can be found in the inventory. The animals (cow, goat, sheep, hen, horse and pig) are stored in their corresponding shelters. Remaining assets can be dragged out of the inventory and can be placed anywhere on the farm along with the shelters.

Players can exchange animal extracts (milk, wool, egg and truffle) for game cards.

Cropping

Growing crops need water and seeds. Growing corn requires one bucket of water and one bag of seeds per each square crop land. Corn can be harvested once it is fully grown which takes 36 hours.

Notes:

  • Harvested crops are automatically moved to barn.
  • Cropping can’t be done for crops kept for trading.

Grinding

Crops need to be grinded to make feed for the animals. Clicking on the mill button will pop up the available mills with wait time required for each. Selecting the option starts the grinding and the fee is deducted from your account.  Once the time elapse the crops are grinded and is ready to be fed to animals.

Feeding

All animals will be locked in their respective shelters and need to fed once in 24 hours.

Animal stats

Every animal will have 3 status bars which by default will have values:

  • Power 30%
  • Strength 40%
  • Health 100%

Factors affecting stats

The stats depend on how players take care of their animals. Daily feeding adds 0.25 to strength, power bar and health bars.

Skipping feeding causes reduction in stats as follows

  • Health 10%
  • Strength 25%
  • Power 50%

Notes:

  • Every Sunday the animal needs to be fed with fruit feed. Failure can lead to reduction in all bars by half.
  • Animals don’t produce extracts if the health falls below 80%.
  • The animal is considered dead when the health falls below 11%.

Well

Players having well in their farm will get one bucket of water every hour. This can either be used in your farm or sold in the market.

Lake

Players having lake in their farm will get unlimited water for their crops. They will also get 20 buckets of water per day which can either be used to water trees or can be sold in the market.

Power Balance

In the initial release game play for power sources like turbines and solar panels are disabled. We are creating more use cases for power balance.

Features which will be enabled after the cool down period:

  • Super hero deployment
  • Breeding of super heroes
  • Trading version v2
  • Farm board

Farm Board

Farm board will display the data of number of animals waiting for food, types of feed with quantity , water etc.  

Notes

  • Value of food & water will depend upon the supply and demand.
  • The farm view will be in a separate app , not with the existing app. Integration of present app with farm view app is still under process. Single app will be released once the integration is done.
  • Airdrop of seeds and water will be done to all users having cropland some hours before the game release.

Initial Cool down period of one week till oct 14th

  • No reduction in health
  • Trading will be paused

Game Tools & Their Uses

Solar panel & Wind turbine :

The Solar panel & Wind turbine assets will produce the power which will be measured as a ‚ÄúWatt Balance‚ÄĚ in¬†Cropbytes game platform.

  • A 100W Solar panel will¬† generates 100W /hr and will work for 8 Hrs a day, This can generate maximum of¬† 800W power¬† per day.
  • A 100W Wind turbine will randomly generate 50W to 60W per hour and will work for 24Hrs a day.
  • In Wind turbines, there are 3 variants available which are likely 100W, 500W and 1KW.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prices & Storage capacity (SC):

100W Solar panel = 1000 TRX, SC = 10KW
100W Wind Turbine = 1400 TRX, SC = 15KW
500W WT = 6500 TRX, SC = 90KW
1KW WT = 12,000 TRX, SC = 200KW
Base price of 1KW = 1 TRX.

Where the watts will be used?
Watts have a very important role in this game, It can be used as a power input to Food Mill, Cold Storage & a few factories which will be coming in later updates.

FOOD MILL:

Food Mill is a factory where all the crops can be converted into food and delivered back to cropland owners & there will be a small Cold Storage capacity included in it.

Base Prices & features:

Food mill price = 25K TRX
Base charge to process 4 Square crop lands = 0.25 TRX
Power required to process 4 Square crop lands = 150 W (0.15TRX)
Time required to process 4 square crop lands = 20min
Cold storage Capacity = 500 Square crop lands
Charge for storing each square crop land = 0.05 TRX per day
Power required to run cold storage = 12KW per day

NOTE :

* When we start using the real time climate conditions, power output may vary 10% according to your climate!

*All the above listed assets can be traded between co players but can not be sold back to game. The game will only buy it back, if the game decides to close. But that will never happen.

How the Game Works ?

A virtual farming game where you can buy and sell animals, lands, buildings, machines etc.. Once you sign in, you can mark your land on game map and name your farm. People who are  passing nearby or who are  searching close to that area can visit your farm and chat with you to make a deal. If you have anything to sell, you can put it in your  status board in your farm.

 

Crop Lands

As the name indicates crop lands are where you can  grow crops. It is divided into two types.

  • Normal Crop Land
  • Crop Land with Lake Side view

These are available in various sizes like 2×2, 2×3, 4×4 etc.. You can buy crop lands in flash sales which are held 3 times per day every 8 hours. All lands are limited in supply and its price may vary depending on supply and demand. The current market price of the land will be displayed in the games “Market” tab. Crop lands with lake side view will have water supply all the time.

Note :¬†You can not mark your land near to another player’s land, a minimum radius of 1 km around each land on map view is required.

Crops

You can purchase seeds from the flash sale and there will three types of crops.

  • Corn –¬† 36 hours
  • Blueberries – 48 hours
  • Carrots – 42 hours

Every farm will get a limited supply of water every day,  which can be stored in a tank. Once the crops are grown you can feed it to your animals or you can sell them in the market as per the market price. Price will vary as per the market supply and demand.

Animals & Breeding

Just like croplands, you can buy various animals which include different types of cows, goats, hens, ox, rabbits, horse etc. You can breed a rare animal from your existing animals collection. Breeding will take 1/4th of the time of original incubation period of an animal in the real world. Incubation period of some animals that have a very long incubation period in real time will be 1/6th in the game.

When you grow a new animal through breeding you can get some random amount of TRX coins and the new animal will look like a mix breed whose characteristics will be a mix of their parents. So if you breed a cute animal, you can sell in market for higher price.

 

All animals will have health indicators, which indicate Health, Activeness & Stamina. If all three bars have maximum value then that will the best animal, but you have to work hard to reach maximum indicator level. You need to feed an animal 2 times per day to maintain 100% health bar. And animals will stay alive as long as it maintain a health bar above 15%.

Each animal will have their own unique features, like some can eat less and give more resources, some can eat high and give less resources but can breed many times. All the characters & features will be explained in the game index which will be releasing soon.

Events

When the game is fully  balanced, we will be conducting events like the Horse Race. The horse that is higher in the average of 3 health indicators will win the race. No one else can see health indicators except the horse owner. For example if I have a horse with an average health of 94.3%, then I will win if there is no other horse in the race is having more than 94.3% of average health.

Animal Extracts

Daily feeding of animals wont be expensive, as you will get resources worth more than what you spend on food to feed your animals. Goods like milk, eggs etc. which you get from animals can be directly sold to game stock or you can sell it to other players who need it or exchange it with an asset card. Asset cards will help you purchase in game assets like homes, power generators, motors etc.

Super Heroes

There will be 6 super heroes in the game who are rabbits. Each one of them will have a unique quality which will help you maintain your farm better and earn bigger returns.

  • Waterl (male)
  • Healer (female)
  • Bloosm (female)
  • Chichu (male)
  • Green (female)
  • Ss (male)

Initially there will be only 8,000 super heroes available in the game and their count will be increased only through breeding. Breeding of super heroes will unlock a new super hero of next level. You can keep super heroes only if you have a house. Level 1 house can keep a pair of super heroes and 2 baby super heroes .

Chat Feature

There is a inbuilt chat option for players, which makes buying, selling or exchanges easier among players.

Advantages for Early Investors

  • Prices of all the packages are listed with 20% to 35% discount compared to original prices in the game.
  • 150 super heroes will be released among people who purchased the farm paradise package. Farm paradise package is also limited.

Risk Factors

We would also like to share a few risks involved in the game openly, because we know the value of your hard earned money.

  • Price of the assets in game may go up when everyone is purchasing that and may drop when everyone selling it back. We suggest you to think carefully before purchasing an asset when it is having high price compare to its standard price. However it won’t go lower than a standard price because all assets are limited and we will bring them into the market very carefully as per the demand. All the players can see the live number of sold assets & total circulation of particular type.
  • Feed your pets regularly and maintain a good health bar for it. You can sell back the particular pet back to game market or to any other player only when it’s health bar is more than 50%.
  • It is better not to keep more male pets, because males doesn’t produce any extracts like female pets, they will produce a small amount of asset cards which can be used to upgrade and purchase assets like houses. Male pets in the game will be useful for breeding & other players can hire your male pet for breeding in future.
  • Crop land owners are ones who produce the food for all animals, sometimes there is a chance that crop land owners may hold food stocks in order to raise the price of food, which may affect the daily profits of pets owners. To avoid these kind of situations we have kept an expiry date for each crops, so that crops owners will sell these crops in game market before expiry date and prices will be controlled.

Note :  Employees/Developers of cropBytes are not allowed to play this game.
