Get in on the excitement by visiting:

🏟 Hippodrome Management System

This week, we’ve introduced a new update to our custom race creator: the maximum wallet participation option.

This addition ensures fairness and balance among all players when registering for events and custom races. Here’s how it works: creators of custom races now have the ability to set a maximum limit on the number of horses that can participate from each wallet in a specific event. This range can vary from 1 to 12 horses per wallet.

With this innovation, we’re promoting inclusivity and preventing any single stable from overrunning the event. Instead it allows a larger number of different stables to compete against each other.

🐎 Challenge Races

This week, we’ve made significant strides in developing the Challenge Races feature.

We’re thrilled to announce that we have finalized the core aspect of this feature: the ability for players to challenge each other’s horses in thrilling 1-on-1 races. The process is simple yet engaging: players can handpick their desired opponent from their NFT horse list and select a horse from their own stable to compete in the exhilarating showdown.

Additionally, they can customize the race parameters, including track surface, length, and entry fee.

We’re excited to share that the rudimentary “challenge” mechanism is already in place, and our dedicated team is continuously working on refining and enhancing this feature.

🌴 Hippodrome update

Exciting developments are underway as our talented game designers dive deeper into the creation of the upcoming hippodrome with a dirt surface.

This week, their meticulous efforts have resulted in the completion of the hippodrome surroundings, with every key element thoughtfully placed to immerse players in an authentic racing experience.

Building upon this foundation, our designers have shifted their focus to perfecting the horizon view, fine-tuning the lighting and shadows to create a visually stunning spectacle.
