Creating an interoperable collection takes time and effort. Make sure you are ready for it!
While a magic button to auto-generate your Avatar would be fantastic, it would be, well, just that, magic. To create an Avatar collection you need to be aware that there is a mix of manual work and automation, so there are a few steps you will need to consider in order to bring your collection to The Sandbox ecosystem.
An important thing to note here is that you don’t specifically need an Avatar collection to get involved. From Avatars to entities, wearables and equipment, this can all be achieved by interpreting data from the original NFT, creating the appropriate models, and then applying them in The Sandbox.
So if you have a collection that isn’t based on avatars, but you are still interested in expanding on their utility and interoperability, then reach out to the team and we can help you consider your options.
If you aren't the creator of the NFT you hold, why not reach out to the community and team to see if they would be interested in bringing the collection to The Sandbox.
It is important to recognize that creating an interoperable collection is a lot of work. While The Sandbox team have tools in place to help streamline the process, please consider that there is a process to follow and a considerable amount of assets to be created before a collection can have this utility applied.
If you are raring to go, know it will take a concentrated effort, and can’t wait to roll your sleeves up and set the proper foundations for your collection, then take the first step by contacting The Sandbox team.
Once we receive your expression of interest we will review and let you know if we will be able to help get your NFT avatar data ready to follow the production steps and bring your collection to life.
Remember, the tools are still in development so while you won’t be able to get your collection out to the community tomorrow, you can start taking the steps so that they are ready to deploy as soon as possible.
