What are tools?

Tools are NFT game cards that are used within the Alien Worlds Metaverse to mine for Trilium on land. Miners may use up to 3 tools at once. Tool NFTs produce different mining modification when used on different parcels of land. Rarer and shinier Tools can have increased powers. 

Tool NFT game cards have attributes which impact the mining game:

Charge time - The amount of time that must have elapsed since you last mined
    1. Tools have a ‘charge time’ associated with them which is the time, in seconds, that must
      have passed since you last mined.
      1. If three tools are being used, the longest 2 charge times are added to derive the charge time. If two tools are used, the longer charge time and half of the shorter charge time are added together to give the total time that must have elapsed since last mine
      2. Land has a charge time multiplier. The charge time in seconds given by the Tools is
        multiplied by the Land’s charge time multiplier.
Trilium Mining Power (Power) - How fruitful it is to mine
  1. Tools have a ‘Trilium Mining Power’ percentage; ‘Trilium Mining Power’ % of all Tools
    used in a given mine are summed
  2. Land: have an ‘Trilium Mining Power’ multiplier which is multiplied with the sum of the
  3. Tools’ Power percentages
NFT Luck - The chance of receiving an NFT from a mining action.

NFT Luck is given by:

  1. Tools have an ‘NFT Luck’ percentage; ‘luck’ % of all Tools used in a given mine are
    summed
  2. Land have an ‘NFT Luck’ multiplier which is multiplied with the sum of the Tools’ luck
    percentages
Proof of Work Reduction - Proof of a mining attempt

In order to prevent network abuse and disincentivise automation, successful mining attempts must supply proof of work. For an average user, this is all handled through the game interface without the user being aware of it, although for users mining on mobile devices with low computing power, the proof of work requirement may create a noticeable time lag. However, for completeness the algorithms are given below. More information can be found here: What does the number in the NFT game cards' lower left corner's pyramid icon mean?

The proof of work calculation is:
sha256( concat( account_name, first_8_bytes_last_mine_tx_id, nonce ) )
if wam first 2 bytes == 0, next 4 bits must be less or equal than pow reduction
if not wam first 3 bytes 0, next 4 lte pow reduction

 

This information can also be found in the Technical Blueprint.
