Pat Morita Cubie

  • Anyone can hunt and get the Pat Morita resources and cubie blueprint

First Celebrity NFT Event

  • Six unique NFT art pieces, 10 copies of each, are minted on OpenSea
  • the NFT blueprints will be hidden in the game for you to find
  • received from Pat Morita estate
  • only drop in Coin Hunt World
  • total 60 NFTs up for grabs
  • need to look for Large Torii Gates, taller than a building, with a golden disk in the centre of the red gate
  • placed in 6 locations significant to Pat Morita's life and accomplishments
  • Developers will release hints to help community track down gates
  • inside these 6 large gates are one of the six NFTs, 10 copies of each
  • FIRST TEN PLAYERS ONLY
  • hint: 5/6 are in California, 1/6 in Hawaii (this was later updated in the Medium article on the Pat Morita event to be: 4/6 in California, 1/6 in Hawaii, 1/6 in Wisconsin)
  • because relevant to Pat Morita's life
  • large Torii are local - you have to visit CA, WI, or HI to get the NFT, and you have to be among the first 10 players to any particular gate!
  • small Torii are global, anyone has a chance of getting the Pat Morita Cubie BP and printing the Pat Morita Cubie
  • Demonstration of another way for Intellectual Properties to interact with CHW
  • component will be for Charity - a portion of all the keys you are using for little or big Torii will be donated to Shriner's Hospital, where Pat Morita spent a lot of time recovering from a childhood illness
  • THIS IS A RACE
  • You can only hit a Large Torii once
  • You can hit small torii like Green Vaults (every 24 hours)

Christmas sneak peek

  • one new epic BP: No information yet

Key system changes (some time next year)

  • no more Keybooths
  • Supercharged Mystery Boxes (everyone has similar base inflow of keys)
  • new mechanics to earn additional keys each day:

Player Owned Structures (some time next year)

  • new construction system
  • replaces current system
  • existing Uservaults will be phased out over time
  • but they will exist in parallel for a long time
  • the plot of land around your UV is YOUR LAND
  • you will be the only one to build new Structures on this plot
  • 50m range around your UV is your territory

New Player Structures (some time next year)

  • Tag, Build, Operate
  • Tag: hunters will tag the world around them
    • e.g. fountains, banks, bus stops, walking/cycling path, coffee shop
    • CHW will continuously release new tags
    • we get a database of tags
  • Build: new type of BP called Construction Blueprints
    • each Construction BP has a list of compatible tags
    • each Construction BP has its own Construction Quests
    • CHW continuously releases new Construction BPs
    • THESE ARE BPS THAT CONSTRUCT THINGS. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME AS THE CONSTRUCTION CUBIE.
  • Operate: all structures require a compatible Cubie to operate it
    • some structures require stocking resources (e.g. coffee beans for coffee shop, and you need to get stocked up, and maybe coffee beans only come from El Salvador)
    • all structures will earn keys for the owner

Example of Player Structures: Lucky Fountain

  • Tag: You can only place <fountain> tags on real world fountains
  • Build: purchase Lucky Fountain Blueprint
    • Find a fountain tag
    • claim the tag with the BP
    • complete the Construction Quest
    • assign a compatible cubie
  • Operate: once active, all players can see the Lucky Fountain
    • they can throw a key in the fountain for 1 hour luck boost
    • percentage of keys thrown into fountain will go back to owner
    • means that everyone who has a UV on top of a fountain, will be able to build a lucky fountain on the 50m of land around their UV
    • there will be specific structures that can only be built by rural players, e.g. barn, field, farm
