Explanation of Issues During Protolive #2 ~Yamato Phantasia~ and Future Steps

Explanation of Issues During Protolive #2 ~Yamato Phantasia~ and Future Steps

This is the Holoearth Management Team. We greatly appreciate everyone who attended the Protolive #2 ~Yamato Phantasia~ concert. Thank you once again to all who participated in the event. We would like to inform everyone about the technical issues that occurred during the Yamato Phantasia performance and our response. Why the number of attendees to the stage area was restricted Although the app login and network communication in the venue area were working as normal, the load on the API for fetching information on event-related items from the server far exceeded expectations. Due to the increased load due to people entering the stage area, the number of events that caused this error increased. As a result we took measures to restrict the number of entrants to the venue. We apologize to everyone who was looking forward to the show but could not enter the venue. We are currently working on a solution to this problem, and plan to take further measures against server load issues. At the same time, we will also review the quality assurance procedures performed during the verification of new releases, and will establish a more rigorous release verification system. In addition, in response to this incident, we are considering holding a replay of Yamato Phantasia after taking measures to allow more users to enter. Details of the replay being considered For a replay of Yamato Phantasia, we are looking into reopening the event area and showing the performance again. Contents under consideration: ・ Reopening of the Kyo-no-Miyako area ・ Replay of the performance with archive footage * Further details and schedule will be announced at a later time. * Currently, after verifying and improving functionality, we are considering whether it is possible to hold a complete event replay. This is under consideration; as a result, it may be replayed with some changes, so we ask for your understanding in advance. For those who purchased event items and were unable to participate Contents under consideration: ・For items with an expiration date, such as Holo Lite Blade, the usage period and effect activation period will be extended according to the schedule of the replay. ・The lanterns purchased will be carried over to the replay event area. *For further questions not pertaining to above please use the Contact Us page in-app. 500 regular Holocoins will be distributed to users as a thank you for participating in Yamato Phantasia Although some issues remain, the takeaways from this event were a sufficient verification for the platform as a benchmark for next-generation virtual event experiences, which was the primary purpose of this event. As a thank you for your understanding, we will send 500 Holocoins (regular) to all users who have logged in to Holoearth by the end of the original event period ending at 15:59 on July 21st (JST). Thank you for your patience. The event area for Protolive #2 ~Yamato Phantasia~ has been open for a while now, and we hope you will continue to enjoy it. Thank you for your continued support of Holoearth.

Please note if it is determined that inappropriate content is included in the posted or distributed content, we may take steps to have it deleted. Since this rule is specific to this performance, the same may or may not apply to future live events. Please note the Project Team may suspend accounts or eject participants from the event space who impede the event experience for others via trolling, abusive language, or other disruptive behavior. Any issues we experience before or during the event will be announced via the Holoearth chat function and the official Holoearth website and Twitter page.

Notification in Advance The scheduled Protolive Replay is a free performance for the purpose of testing Holoearth’s system operability and server load, so in the event of temporary service interruptions or shutdowns we cannot guarantee an event restart. The event will be relatively network intensive, and so there is a possibility that the performance may be disrupted depending on your internet connection. We recommend using a stable internet environment, such as a wired connection if possible. Since this is a virtual event each user will see the performance from a different vantage point, so we allow and encourage users to post videos and screenshots on media sharing sites, SNS, etc. However, please note if it is determined that inappropriate content is included in the posted or distributed content, we may take steps to have it deleted. Since this rule is specific to this performance, the same may or may not apply to future live events. Please note the Project Team may suspend accounts or eject participants from the event space who impede the event experience for others via trolling, abusive language, or other disruptive behavior.

The Next Steps for Holoearth (Apr 2023 edition)

The Next Steps for Holoearth (Apr 2023 edition)

Greetings from the Holoearth Project Team! At the time of writing, almost 200,000 people have participated since we released the Holoearth Lobby Beta in November 2022. Thanks to your participation, we have made headway in testing the beta version of Holoearth. We appreciate everyone who has participated up to this point! This time around we would like to talk about the current status of Holoearth development, as well as the current roadmap for the project.   Alternative Booth Held as a Virtual Exhibition Venue During hololive SUPER EXPO A virtual exhibition venue, the hololive Alternative booth was opened for the hololive SUPER EXPO 2023 event held at Makuhari Messe during March 18th – 19th, and was open to the public until April 13th. The virtual venue received even more visitors than the main live event, which itself was well received. Thank you to everyone who came to either the live event or the virtual venue! In addition, we introduced the ability to purchase event-related merchandise in the virtual space on a trial basis, which was well-received. The success of this first virtual exhibition helped demonstrate the potential of the Holoearth project. Moving forward we plan on continuing to improve the functionality of Holoearth and hold a number of virtual events.   In-game Purchases Officially Implemented With a view to future live events, we added in-game purchases to the lobby, as well as an in-game currency, Holocoins, which can be exchanged for items including Stickers and Poppers that were temporarily introduced before for testing purposes.  ▼Check here for more details https://holoearth.com/en/news/533/ We have many plans for adding more items that can be used during live events in the future, so please look forward to future updates!    HoloCoin Gift As special thanks, those who login during the Holoearth Lobby Beta period will be gifted 250 HoloCoins. Please confirm by checking your Gift Box in Holoearth.   “ProtoLive Replay” Event In May we are planning to have a re-showing of the ProtoLive event that was held in the Holoearth lobby on December 26th, 2022. This will be a replay of the virtual stage portion of the event held late last year. Our aim with this replay is to further strengthen our network so that more fans can enjoy the live event experience in Holoearth. We hope you look forward to the Holoearth ProtoLive experience!   Future Live Events Following the ProtoLive Replay event, we are organizing a second ProtoLive event that will take place during the summer, which will also serve as a test for newly implemented mechanics. For the summer event, we are also adding a special area for participants to enjoy even outside of the main live show time. We will announce more details soon, so please look forward to it.   Sandbox Game & Avatar Creation System Updates We also have a few updates about the Holoearth sandbox game and avatar creation system that are also being developed. Sandbox Game Currently we are focused on: ・Improving the 3D style of the play area ・Brushing up combat mechanics ・Balancing the main game cycle In-game combat concept A new episode of Holoearth TV on YouTube showing more gameplay footage in collaboration with hololive talents is also in the works. Previous Holoearth TV Episodes (Japanese) Fighting a Golem in Holoearth Alpha! [Major Announcement] Bringing the latest information to the world! Holearth TV #2 [Major Announcement] Bringing the latest information to the world! Holearth TV #1   Avatar Creation System The avatar creation system is nearing completion of its prototyping phase, and we are looking to increase the number of options for avatar skins and costumes. We are planning to release a public beta of the avatar system around fall of this year for players to test a simple version of the customization options. Please look out for more details about the avatar creation system that we plan to release soon. Sample images of avatar skins That concludes our update of the current status of Holoearth. We have been busy adding more team members to the project and making strides in development of the virtual event / communication lobby, sandbox game, and avatar creation system. We will keep working hard toward a potential full release in 2024. Thank you for your continued support!   We are recruiting new members for the Holoearth Project.(Japanese)

Communication Lobby Verification Test Launch

About the Metaverse Project Holoearth This project envisions a metaverse of virtual content possibilities, all set in the alternate universe of Holoearth. About the Verification Test For this test we will use the prototype version of the communication lobby – the portal into Holoearth – to test and verify both the current functionality and server loads. Since the main purpose of this test is verifying server loads, the in-app functions and visuals do not necessarily reflect those of the final planned release version. In this test version of the communication lobby, participants are able to control a test avatar, move around the lobby, and communicate with other participants using emotes and text chat. The results of this test will be used for continued development for future in-app functions and events held in the Lobby. Verification Test Period The test will run from March 14th, 2022, until March 25th, 2022. How to Launch Holoearth Download the zip file from the test version download button at the top of this page.
