Tech team: This week we worked with the product team to review some Game Design elements and plan the roadmap for v1.
Backend team: - we are working on a new map system, including elements other than villages - we did some refactoring work - started working on a new rules library that will be used by all services to centralize those rules - user crypto wallet is now created asynchronously using an event system when we create a user to avoid the wait - working with the Infra team to stress test our production
Infra team - Big ambitions imply big infra! No one will stand before apes to rule the world … except latency !! We are working on that - Exploring several enhancements: CDN, better distribution of the database, Regional load balancer — Working with the backend team for code optimization
3D by kermit 3D farm model is done
All starter beta building has been completed, and integration is coming soon.
