Star Atlas creator ATMTA unlocking data on Solana

ATMTA, the creator of Star Atlas, is unlocking access to its developer tools and documentation on the Solana blockchain, offering fellow game creators access to its ecosystem and economy, starting with the new SAGE Labs browser-based game.

A building hub where links and documentation can be found for developers who want to take a peek into Star Atlas' images, audiovisual assets, Unreal Engine tooling, APIs, and mainnet program IDs and addresses can be found from the site, allowing for free access to Star Atlas' images, audiovisual assets, Unreal Engine tooling, APIs, and mainnet program IDs and addresses.

A new player profile for personalized gaming, a tool to use the ATLAS token for Solana transactions instead of SOL, a system for managing token ownership and permissions, a enlistment tool for factions that other developers can use, and functions to regulate the sending of in-game tokens like ships.

Star Atlas, a role-playing game that takes place in the space, is based on the Solana network. In September 2022, ATMTA launched a'showroom' demo on the Epic Games Store. SAGE Labs, a browser-based game, ties into the larger Star Atlas universe.

ATMTA said that it will be making its Star Atlas data publicly available to transparency and fostering trust among players and stakeholders, with the aim of also creating a broader ecosystem of apps around the game.

ATMTA does not need a cut for the first $1 million gross revenue of any company using the tools, Wagner said. If a company using Star Atlas assets and branding begins generating over $1 million in revenue, fees ranging from 3% to 10 percent can be imposed depending on how the company operates in the industry or sector.

ATMTA said the tools can be utilized to create new functionality around SAGE Labs, but it can also enable creators to spin off into new genres and experiences built around the same assets and features.

While Wagner is optimistic about the rollout of the Star Atlas build platform and SAGE Labs, he acknowledges that there could be obstacles to launching such public resources.

Although Star Atlas has been eagerly awaited by the community of Solana, the journey to success has not been without its bumps. In July, ATMTA cut its staff by 73% based on market conditions and spending needs. As painful as it was to let those people go, Wagner said, it was necessary and that the Star Atlas teams' efficiency and momentum have improved significantly. He's hopeful that the company will be heading towards the future, he said.

While SAGE Labs' build hub is intended for the Solana ecosystem, Wagner said that anyone on any blockchain can benefit from the information and tools. With SAGE Labs, he said, anyone can build their own front-end user interface or customize gameplay mechanics and roll out a separate product.

s better, it still uses all of the Star Atlan assets, that's how the programs are defined, Wagner said.
