Up until now, only developers with technical know how, 3D design and coding knowledge have been able to build in Decentraland. This has obviously been a barrier to entry for most, leaving LAND owners and investors frustrated at not being able to unleash their creativity on the platform.
In March 2019 this problem will become a thing of the past.
Introducing “The Builder” Tool
Decentraland developers are taking some of the core functionality provided by the SDK 5.0, and making it available in an easy-to-use editor, accessible directly from your web browser.
“The Builder” tool will comprise of hundreds of pre-built 3D models and assets which will be simple to use, even with little or no tech experience.
To celebrate the launch of the new Builder tool, Decentraland are launching an epic competition with a very generous prize pot. This is likely to trigger a building frenzy on a scale that could make Dubai’s building project look like child’s play.
