TSP2E — Frequently Asked Questions
Today is the big day, and in just a couple short hours, Town Star Play-to-Earn Early Access is being released!
In THIS POST, we announced the basic details of #TSP2E, and now (one week later) we have filled out details, answered questions and tested the gameplay.
This FAQ is designed to answer all of your play-to-earn questions. If you have additional questions that are not covered in the list, join the discussion in Discord. This is a living document that will be altered and updated as necessary while we pioneer together into this uncharted territory. You’ll also soon find an extensive FAQ page at Support.Gala.Games, but we wanted to ensure that questions and answers were immediately available with the early access launch.
Will node operators get daily TownCoin distribution?
Yes, if they complete their node requirements for that day.
NFTS & Play-to-Earn
Will you only be able to earn with placed NFTs?
Will all Town Star placeable NFTs be able to earn?
Will skins also earn TownCoin?
What is the difference between a placeable NFT and one you apply?
Placeable NFTs are buildings or bots that do tasks for you or allow you to hold more items in storage. Skins are NFTs that you apply that (may) give you speed bonuses. Only placeable NFTs earn TownCoin.
Will there be a max number of VOX I can place in my town?
If you are Level 100 and own 100 VOX you will be able to place and earn with all of them. However, this may make it difficult to complete the Town Star Daily Challenge that is required to earn your daily TownCoin.
Will VOX need to be placed by a road?
How are NFT rarities determined?
Town Star NFT rarity will be determined by total supply on-chain.
VOX rarity will be determined by their current rarity according to rarity score at rarity.tools/collectvox
What can my different NFTs earn?
Answer coming soon (chart)
What can my VOX earn?
VOX rarity will determine the amount of TownCoin you can receive. To see your rarity go to rarity.tools/collectvox
Will VOX placed have proximity effects?
Will the Farmbot be usable in the future?
How many NFTS can I play with? What happens if I place more NFTs than my power Level?
You can play with as many NFTs as you would like. If you play with more than your Gala Power Level allows to earn, the highest earning NFTs will default to earn.
Do my NFTs need to be placed while I’m doing the Daily Challenge?
For the purposes of play-to-earn, your earnable NFTs only need to be in your town at the time that you collect your TownCoin earnings.
What is ⚡Gala Power⚡?
⚡Gala Power⚡ is a system of levels proportional to how many of your NFTs will be eligible for daily play-to-earn TownCoin, based on the amount of GALA and TownCoin you are currently holding. In the future, this number may also include other factors such as NFTs, account age and referrals.
Will GALA in your Treasure Chest count towards your ⚡Gala Power⚡?
Does BSC GALA count towards your ⚡Gala Power⚡?
No. Only GALA and TownCoin in your Inventory (& Treasure Chest) count towards ⚡Gala Power⚡.
Will holding TownCoin have benefits?
Yes. Holding TownCoin will add to your ⚡Gala Power⚡at a 2X rate.
For example, if you are a level 2, you can get to level 4 by holding half as much TownCoin as you could holding GALA.
How often is ⚡Gala Power⚡ updated?
⚡Gala Power⚡ will be updated in real time. A refresh may be required to view the updated value.
If I withdraw GALA will it immediately affect my ⚡Gala Power⚡?
Yes, withdrawing GALA will immediately affect your ⚡Gala Power⚡.
How will levels of ⚡Gala Power⚡ relate to the number of NFT eligible for rewards?
Each level will allow you to place one NFT to earn TownCoin. Example: if you are level 20, you will be able to place 20 NFTs to earn TownCoin. You can place as many NFTs as you would like. Your Level limit will take the highest earning NFTs to count towards your TownCoin earnings.
How are the amounts of GALA and TownCoin held used to determine ⚡Gala Power⚡ level?
⚡Gala Power⚡ Equation:
Gala Power = Gala Coin + (Town Coin*2)
⚡Gala Power⚡ Scale (Subject to change)
Levels 1–20: Every 5K ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 21–35: Every 10K ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 36–45: Every 25K ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 46–55: Every 50K ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 56–65: Every 100K ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 66–73: Every 1M ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 74–81: Every 5M ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 82–86: Every 10M ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 87–94: Every 50M ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
Levels 95–100: Every 100M ⚡Gala Power⚡ held increases your level by 1
What will future TownCoin utility be?
Here are two examples:
Items will be released in the Gala Games store that are purchasable only with TownCoin.
Eventually, buildings will be upgradeable by spending TownCoin.
What is the max supply of TownCoin?
1 Quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) (to 8 decimals)
Where can I purchase TownCoin?
Currently, you can only earn TownCoin.
Can we exchange TownCoin for GALA and vice versa?
Unfortunately, we do not provide functionality for token exchange on the Gala Games platform. However, like GALA token, TownCoin is an ERC-20, meaning that users may at their own discretion create swaps and list the token on exchanges.
Why implement a new coin rather than use GALA?
While Gala Token is integral to our gaming ecosystem, we have set our goals high towards the number of games we want on our platform. As such, in order to allow each of our games to have a functional play to earn mechanism, each game needs to have its own token.
Will TownCoin go to Inventory or my Treasure Chest?
TownCoin will be deposited in your Treasure Chest, and show up under your Inventory tab as Treasure Chest items.
When can I claim TownCoin?
Anytime after completing your Daily Challenge and before the daily universal timer runs out.
Will I eventually be able to purchase Season Passes with TownCoin?
Yes, but not necessarily for the first round.
How often will the Daily Challenges change?
At launch the Daily Challenges will be the same, but they will reset every 24 hours.
Are Daily Challenges on individual or universal time?
Universal. Challenges will change at the same time for everyone every day. This is subject to change.
What is a Season?
A Season is a to-be-determined length of time that your Pass will allow you to participate in Daily Challenges and potentially earn TownCoin. You will need to purchase a new Pass for each Season.
Can I purchase multiple Season Passes?
This is to be determined.
Will I be able to purchase and gift Season Passes in the future?
Not at first, but possibly in the future.
Will there be a lifetime Season Pass available?
Will there be an auto renew feature for Season Passes?
Not at first, but possibly in the future.
Weekly & Play-to-Earn Servers
What is the Weekly Server?
The Weekly Server hosts the Weekly Competition in Town Star where people fight for top rankings to earn GALA. While you can also participate in the P2E aspects, it is not required.
What are the Play-to-Earn Servers?
The P2E Servers run for 30 days allowing you to create amazing builds for your towns AND earn TownCoin by completing your Daily Challenges.
Will all instances of the Play-to-Earn Server be open at the same time?
Yes. You will be able to choose where you would like to place your town in any of the servers.
Can I play in both the Weekly and Play-to-Earn Servers?
Yes. You can have a town in both places, however you can only be active in one at a time and only collect TownCoin from ONE per day.
That’s it for now! Keep your eyes on the blog for more exciting updates as they become available, and join the discussion in the Discord community. We hope you all have a blast making history with us in Town Star Play-to-Earn!
