Does it make sense to have an avatar per land plot? or is it better to have an avatar per owner? … If the avatar is supposed to represent me, should it not also represent me on all the plots I own? Or am I splitting into different avatars? I think an airdrop to each land owner makes sense one per plot, and the land owner can choose which avatar to select as their identity. The others could be used as “citizens” of the colony and would help contribute to the commerce. These could be the GEN 0 avatars. GEN 1, 2, 3, could then be minted (similar to puff) as the demand rises and can be used as colonists to add value to land plots, etc. Initial thought on this. I’m still thinking about how this could work.

I believe it should be minted using CLNY, this will create a use case and buy pressure for CLNY. It is technically considered an ‘airdrop’ for landowner since we are getting CLNY from our lands…non land owners will have to purchase CLNY from the market in order to mint

Everyone will be able to mint the Avatars no matter if they own a land or not is how I understand it. Which makes sense to open the doors for more players. I don’t think any airdrop should be done btw since land owners already are producing CLNY. What I would like to see though, is CLNY being used as the token for this minting process for the sake of setting the standard so that CLNY becomes the actual in game currency for everything besides lands from now on.

PixiMan gets my vote, whether it’s this iteration or something else from him. Pixel art is getting a bit tired in my opinion, let’s look at doing something unique for Mars.
