[ENDED] HUNTERCOIN GIVEAWAY~! =D
« on: February 02, 2014, 08:52:10 PM »
To help get a few people started, I'm giving away some Huntercoins.

Huntercoin is a crypto currency game. It's both a currency, and a game. You can mine Huntercoins, or you can play the game to collect them.

The Bitcoin Talk Forum thread is here:

https://bitcointalk....x.php?topic=435170.0

1) Download the wallet
2) Run it
3) Wait for the blockchain to sync
4) Create an address and post it here.

I'm giving away 3.015 Huntercoins to the first 3 people to post an address. That's enough to get you 3 players. (1.005 coins per player)

Moving
Select a character in the list, then click on a location. Do this for each character that you want to move. Click "GO" to move.

Cashing in Coins
Go back to the spawning area and into the coloured section against the wall. Then get OUT.

Spawning Area Death
If you are in the spawning area for more than 30 blocks (a measure of time), you die.

Collecting Coins
Move over a coin to collect it. Coin values are labeled on them. Stay in the same location to collect coins as they spawn in your location.

Destruct
You can kill players with this. I've not used it yet.


EDIT: I have some more coins now, so I can give out more.

No takers?

Really?

Oh well... I tried...

And at market rates, I made almost $300 today for playing a silly game! :P

Man... you have the worst luck...

Make sure that you've downloaded the most recent client. Also, in the appdata directory, delete everything except the wallet.dat and conf file. Restart - you should be good then.

Same here... It's merge mined, so... kind of rough. I don't see any pools where you can simply mine just this. I'd do it if I could. But, it seems that the primary mining is done by humans through the game.

Did that... and it went from being stuck at about 22 hours behind to being 3 days behind.

$300 USD? Can you actually trade it for cash, or is that just a theoretical exchange rate?

It only took me about 30 minutes to sync, and it started at "3 days behind". The forum thread said it takes forever if you're not using an SSD, so I made sure to put the program on my SSD.

That's based off of what I saw people buying/selling in the forums. There's no formal exchange yet, so it's basically whatever anyone will give you. But people pay in other currencies, e.g. Bitcoin, Litecoin, etc.

A few people seemed to be having problems. Lots managed to get things working easily enough though.

I received your HUC. And I think I created a character, but I don't see myself in the game, and I don't know how to actually play.

I figured out how to "play". . . sort of. It's like the slowest and dumbest MUD ever.

I'm not sure it's worth it.

I actually saw you post in the chat before you left it.

You just run around and collect coins. Take them back to the spawning area to cash them out, and repeat. You can kill players as well. Lots of strategy to be used in there. But, I've been playing a bit more. :D




The forum thread said it takes forever if you're not using an SSD

Ah :(  Not using an SSD, and don't have one. :(

I'm not sure that you NEED an SSD. Just see if you can get it running.





I figured out how to "play". . . sort of. It's like the slowest and dumbest MUD ever.

I'm not sure it's worth it.

Well, I sold off a small number of the coins I have, and made 0.17 bitcoins, or a bit over $150 USD. Given the current exchange rate, I gave out about $25 worth of coins here.

When was the last time you got PAID to play a game? ;) ;D

But you're best off to play with multiple players. That's why I gave out way more coins than I said I would above (and that I'd collected more by the time someone posted). You can then make quite a few, and gather some coins, stand to mine on the spot, use some to destruct and kill players to steal their coins, etc. 

There's quite a bit to the game if you play it some and figure out the strategies in there. Choke points. Fastest paths. Intercepting players at constant speeds. Killing other players & stealing coins - worlds of strategy here. I've got a few tricks in there to get coins and escape AND to cover my tracks so I can't be caught or intercepted easily. Stand on a coin spawning point to collect them as they appear. Lots in there. It's half action and half strategy. Real-time turn-based.

Can we close the thread?  Maybe that would end the signups just to get HUC.
