The MegaCryptoPolis 3D decentralized city game guide.DOCUMENTATION
Corporations is a new upgrade released in the MCP3D decentralized city builder game that allows forming coalitions to be registered by the smart contract.
A player can be a member or a founder of only one Corporation. A founder of a Corporation can't become a member of another Corporation or incorporate a new Corporation. A member of a Corporation can't become a member of another Corporation or incorporate a new Corporation.
Corporation ownership rights can be transferred to another player. However, Corporations or roles in Corporations can't be traded on the market.
Creating a Corporation
Every player is able to open a new Corporation in the decentralized city.
In order to do so a player fills a form with some important fields:
- Name for the Corporation — can't be changed then.
- Form — Open (anyone can join) or Private (only by invitations)
- Entry Fee — required for a Member to join the Corporation, can be zero (free entry)
- Daily Fee — subscription for a Corporation Member, can be zero (free participation)
- Logotype — an image associated with your management style
- Manifest — core values and policies for all the members to obey
- Grace period — a period the management will not be able to kick you from the Corporation
- Logo will be placed on all the in-game objects (like POI Landmarks) controlled by a Corporation on the gaming map.
A small incorporation fee will be required that goes entirely to the Global Fund.
Joining a Corporation
Every player can join an open Corporation with an Entry Fee (if there is any) or may be invited to join a private Corporation by it’s Manager (no Fee required in this case).
Some Corporations has a Daily Fee that is required to be a Member of a Corporation.
When joining a new Corporation a participation in the current one shall be terminated.
Managing a Corporation
A Player created a corporation becomes its Supervisor.
Supposedly there will be four different roles available in a Corporation:
- Founder — a creator or an owner, has all the rights in the Corporation;
- Partner — one who has access to the Corporation’s Fund.
- Member — one that uses all the bonuses from Corporation’s POIs;
Managing Roles and assigning Rights allows for adjusting a structure for different tactics a Corporation may be used for.
A Founder can transfer a Corporation governing rights to any other player.
However, a Corporation is not a token an can’t be traded on the open market.
A Partner can also enjoy POIs bonuses while his membership fee is paid (or not required). Partner will still have all the rights granted by that role even if the fee is not paid (just no access to POIs bonuses).
Partner will have an option to withdraw ETH or TRX from the Corporation Fund as defined by his share. For example, if a Partner have 1/4 share in a Corporation, he will be able to withdraw.
Partner is assigned by a Corporation Founder. That position can't be sold or transferred to another player. Partner’s share is a NOT a security, commodity or a swap. It can't be offered, sold or treated as a financial instrument. That is NOT a share in any legal instance, real company or institution.
Corporation Fund is formed by membership fees and assigned Offices (if any). Membership fees are represented with Entry Fees and Subscription. A Corporation owner is one to define the fees. There could be Corporations those are free to enter but will require a regular fee to enjoy POIs bonuses, or a Corporation with some Entry fee but zero participation costs.
There may be several players willing to unite their power to create a powerful Corporation. That way, assigning Offices to a Corporation will generate a Fund that can be used to attract POI builders and maintainers by granting them a part in that Fund (also filled by membership fees).
Assigning Offices to a Corporation
Assigning Offices to a Corporation will, besides a massive logo on all the buildings, make a part of ETH or TRX generated by Offices to flow into a Corporation Fund.
A player will be able to select a part of Funds to flow in the Corporation’s Fund. Offices could be assigned to only one Corporation and the player is required to be a Member / Partner / Owner of that Corporation. All the Offices buildings are assigned at a time, both Business Centers and Office Blocks (Global and Local Funds)— there will be no way to select a certain Office building to be assigned to a Corporation.
Office buildings will still be owned by players and just like with POIs there will be an option to resign a Corporation (after a grace period).
Fund going from Office to a Corporation will not require Resources to collect… until you will collect it from the Corporation Fund.
Assigning a Landmark to a Corporation
Landmark buildings will have a feature to be assigned to a Corporation. That’s the main reason a POI release got delayed.
POI Landmarks still could be used as independent structures (not assigned to any Corporation) to empower a District and engage players to build more as well as Monument POIs will be used by sole-strategy players not willing to cooperate.
Ways to Play
Corporations upgrade unlock a number of new ways to play the MCP3D:
- Corporation’s Founders,
- Corporation’s Fund backers (Office buildings owners),
- POI owners / builders,
- POI maintenance team,
- Super Appliances producers.
Most likely, players will unite those roles — a Corporation Owner will be the POI Builder and Offices Owner at the same time. However, that creates an infinity variations of possible strategies to cooperate — like Offices Owners uniting in one mega Corporation with a huge Fund to invite powerful POI owners and a whole team of players to maintain the operations as Partners.
Corporations is a part of the "Points of Interest" upgrade.
