Creating a Pack

In order to create a Pack, the first thing one must do is decide whether it is a pre-minted pack or a minted on demand pack.

A pre-minted pack is very similar to a booster pack from card games in the fiat world, where there's a set of cards that have been printed (or minted, in this case) and distributed randomly among a number of packs. These packs then go to the store and are purchased and opened, rewarding the buyer with a random set of card(s).

A minted on demand pack is a pack that requires all assets within it to be of infinite supply, because it can be claimed any number of times. Each time the pack is opened by someone, there is a roll that determines which cards that person is getting according to the stablished probability.

Minted on Demand Packs

Once you've accessed Minted on Demand Packs from the creator's hub, you can create your first Pack. On minted on demand packs, mint numbers are sequential, so the first asset minted is #1, the second one is #2, and so on.

Just like in a Drop, you'll need to set a name and description.

You can set a date to unlock the pack, and also add visuals for unpacking, such as a video that pops up when the pack is opened, an image that is used to reveal the packs' result (both in IPFS format), text to show when the pack is opened and custom background color.

Once you've created the pack, you'll be able to add slots to it. Slots are sort of placeholders for NFT. For every card that can be obtained in your pack individually, you'll need to add a slot. A pack that drops 1 NFT will have 1 slot; a pack that drops 5 NFTs will have 5 slots. Within each slot, you can add different possibilities additional to the pool that's been created, so you could perhaps have a chance at a card from one of two different pools. By doing this, you can add an empty result, which means you can create a pack that has 5 slots but sometimes drops 4 NFTs depending on luck. This is also true for pre-minted packs.

To add a slot to this pack, just click on the pack you just created.

From here, you can add any asset from your collection. On minted on demand packs, each slot may contain several assets, which are the rolls made for that slot. So if you have 1 slot with 3 assets and 1 slot with 1 asset, you'll receive 2 NFTs, 1 random and 1 guaranteed.

Once this is set up, you can finalize your pack, which will prompt you to choose an asset for the pack. This is not an asset inside the pack, but the actual display of the pack itself. After this is done you won't be able to delete the pack or modify the slots. Only the name, description and unlock time can be modified on a finalized pack.

Pre-minted packs

TIP

Your collection will need to be of Staking level 2 in order to access this feature

In preminted packs, you'll be able to use pre-minted pools. These pools represent all the NFTs inside all unopened packs using said pool. Given all NFTs have already been minted, mint numbers will be random.

Let's say you're releasing a card game with three different qualities: Common, Rare, and Epic. You've talked with the marketing guy and the game designer guy and have all come to the conclusion that, in each pack, there'll be 5 cards, and you've printed 600 Common cards, 300 Rare cards, and 100 Epic cards. You'd need to add all 1000 assets to the pool in order to be able to distribute them.

This is done from the 'Pre-minted pools' option within pre-minted packs. You'll be able to set a name for the pool, and the schema and template of the assets you want to add into the pool.

Once you've created your pool, you'll be able to create a New pack. We strongly suggest adding a pack template so that it looks more polished.

Just like in a Drop, you'll need to set a name and description.

You'll need need to fill in the slots. In pre-minted packs, slots can be a result from a pool like the one we just created, or be minted on demand whenever the pack is opened.

You can set a date to unlock the pack, and also add visuals for unpacking, such as a video that pops up when the pack is opened, an image that is used to reveal the packs' result (both in IPFS format), text to show when the pack is opened and custom background color.

If a Pack is not exactly what you're looking to create, perhaps the answer is a Blend

TIP

Make sure you have enough RAM to mint all NFTs in your pack!

DANGER

Packs can not be removed and slots can not be altered once the pack is created
