Hi guys, it's been a while since I last rapped at you all! I've co-founded a fintech startup company which involves easy manipulation of digital and physical assets on Ethereum. One of the things we want to develop is a unique item tracking system where items exist on blockchain as tokens, you can see them in your wallet, trade them in game or trade them out of game, with an 'atomic swap' when payment is made (that is, the item buyer gets the item simultaneously as their payment goes through to the seller - as opposed to something like paypal etc which rely on trust). I am wondering if, with your approval and help from a content dev I could do a test run of the system on E&B since I know my way around the code here and the implementation side wouldn't be too difficult. We'd need to synchronise the wallet with the game, so that each character has a unique blockchain address. Then, as the item is transferred to the character's address it would appear in the character's inventory when they return to a station (providing there's sufficient space in the cargo hold). If not then we need a system where the item is in standby until they enter the station with a spare slot in vault or cargo. This way you can have unique items created and traded - I know for E&B it's probably not needed but is fun, but I think everyone can see where this is going (hopefully it will help with our burn-rate!). BTW my old forum name was Tienbau, but I can't seem to log back into it but having been gone so long I'm not surprised. Oh and hey, it's great to see this project is still here! I have been playing E&B as a normal character quite a bit lately (If you see Josher the JE say hi, and sorry I forgot that Josher was actually from E&B in the first place - facepalm!). There's a few things I'd really like to update in the process too, although I can't get too carried away as these days I'm accountable to my fellow co-founders. cheers, Tienbau.
Devs; Has anyone on the team had the time to find the plethora of data points on Archive.org regarding EnB? There is a lot of info on the missions, database items, missions, etc that can be found to incorporate into the game. Is there anything on there that could benefit the developers that I could help find? Is there a 'missing' list that needs more data to complete or make the game more complete to original? I went out there and if you have the right searching skills there could be a gold mine of info... example: [url="http://web.archive.org/web/20030206075833/http://ebportal.com/missions.php"]http://web.archive.org/web/20030206075833/http://ebportal.com/missions.php[/url] Let me know if I can help. Thanks and keep up the good work! Herosmith
