March felt like a quieter month for updates as Nine Chronicles didn’t have any major releases, but a lot appended in the background. That being said, Nine Chronicles finally made all of our code open source which is a huge milestone although most of the work to refactor the code was done in January and February.
This month Nine Chronicles made quite a few updates to performance and ironed out a number of bugs. Nine Chronicles also released the NCIP process and signed out the very first grant!
Nine Chronicles: Fully Open Sourced
One of the biggest milestones for Nine Chronicles is making all of the code fully open sourced. Nine Chronicles had initially released the code for the blockchain underlying the game (Lib9C), but Nine Chronicles had to do some refactoring of the game to make it easier to understand and modify.
Along with this, Nine Chronicles also updated our API to make it easier for developers to interact with the blockchain itself, which is being used in the first grant Nine Chronicles signed (see below). Naturally, no code is worthwhile without any documentation to accompany it. To that end, Nine Chronicles invite our community to take a look here: https://docs.nine-chronicles.com/
Nine Chronicles Improvement Proposals
Nine Chronicles just announced the release of the NCIPs. Over the past month, our team has put together a process for the community to collaborate with us on improving Nine Chronicles. Now Nine Chronicles are proud to introduce Nine Chronicles Improvement Proposals (NCIPs).
This is for larger updates, such as adding a guild system or in-game lobby. Small improvements are still Nine Chronicleslcome to be made here on Discord. HoNine Chroniclesver, any idea, big or small, it is always good to discuss them in the #?suggestion-talk channel!
You can read more on the wiki page.
First Grant: Kosmic Dashboard
This month Nine Chronicles signed the first grant for the Nine Chronicles ecosystem. You have probably seen Community Leader SoFloppy chatting in our Discord, especially in regards to the Swarm Miner that he started working on a few months ago. After getting more familiar with our code he sent us a proposal to build “Kosmic Dashboard”.
This project will provide a Nine Chroniclesb-based dashboard UI, built on top of the Libplanet blockchain node. The UI consists of multiple modules that will be displayed in a tab-like menu. It will expand the game functionality by bringing in-game features to the Nine Chroniclesb while also helping to push new features not yet developed.
Developer updates are posted by the devs on to Notion where you can read more about upcoming features, bug fixes, and other known issues. The updates are now summarized on the wiki, so Nine Chronicles will only cover the main details of each release here and invite you to read on Notion or the wiki for further information.
