After the long wait, Sunflower Land is releasing its first NFT drop!
Introducing Buds, the friendly farming pets that will turbo charge your Sunflower Land farm and gaming experience. These buds mark the start of a new era of collectibles and utility in Sunflower Land, providing exciting gameplay avenues. Players will now be able to collect a one of a kind Sunflower Land collectible and use it in their farming adventure.
In late September, we will be launching the Bud NFT drop. There will be a collection of 5,000 buds offering a range of perks and in-game boosts.
All information provided is for education and gameplay purposes. These NFTs are for in-game use and we do not recommend cryptocurrency or NFTs being used as a form of investment.
5,000 Unique Buds to collect
After consultation with OpenSea, adjustments have been made to the mint allocations. Please revise this documentation.
Changes have been made as at 14th September 1:00pm AEST.
Buds are magical characters that evolve from bud seedlings. They are planted and harvested by Bumpkins. Buds are loveable farming companions that hold the secrets to farming and are renowned in Bumpkin history.
From the early exploration to current day, Buds are loyal pets which have guided Bumpkins towards successful farming ventures.
There are 10 different types of buds, each evolved based on the area in the game they were planted:
- Plaza Buds
- Castle Buds
- Cave Buds
- Beach Buds
- Sea Buds
- Retreat Buds
- Saphiro Buds
- Snow Buds
- Woodland Buds
- Port Buds
You do not need to 'plant' to reveal your bud. They will be revealed automatically.
We have a special surprise!
A long time ago, the mischievous Goblins got their hands on half of the bud seedlings and planted, nurtured and harvested the buds. As a result, Goblin Buds came into existence! These cute buds have the iconic Goblin Ears
When revealing your bud, there is a 50/50 chance that it will be a Goblin Bud or a normal Bumpkin Bud.
The Goblin Buds
Every bud is unique NFT that has it's own traits and special abilities.
Buds originate from 10 different regions of Sunflower Land. Each type of bud includes a guaranteed boost for your farm.
A bud wouldn't be a farming companion without a stem! The stem is a hatlike structure which sits on the buds head. There are 15 Stems which have utility buffs and 10 which are cosmetic.
These buffs will stack on top the buff from the bud's region.
25 Unique Stems
When certain buds were planted and harvested, the mystical forces of Sunflower Land granted these seedlings a magical Aura.
The Aura is defined by a colorful smoke effect surrounding the bud. If you are lucky enough to reveal a bud with an Aura, your buds abilities will be multiplied.
Mystical Aura Bud
Each bud also has a unique colour. These are purely cosmetic and give your bud beauty and recognition!
The elusive Rainbow Bud
Buds will be treated as our premier NFT collectible at Sunflower Land - granting players to bonus gameplay perks and content. As the game evolves, more content and perks will be provided.
Access to the Guild House
Bud owners will be given access to the Guild House, a tavern like building where owners can hangout during streams and access special events and giveaways.
Owners will get access to bonus perks and premium features.
Players will also gain access to a private Discord chat to converse with other bud owners.
Locked Areas / Early Access
Are you looking to explore areas of the map hidden to normal Bumpkins? Well your bud is going to be your guide. Certain buds will give access to unique areas of the map, including early access to their home land (based on region bud comes from). For example, the beach bud will give you early access to the beach.
Looking to launch a custom game or expansion at Sunflower Land to monetise? Well slow down there Bumpkin! You first will need a bud to support your prospects. A bud will give you access to advanced APIs to build out your island.
Bring your buds!
Bring your buds into the plaza with you to show off to other Bumpkins.
Buds waiting at the Guild House
There are only 5,000 buds available. There are a few methods to attain your bud!
- Buds will be made available in our guaranteed mint with 1,000 positions. Players can mint up to 2 Buds.
- Buds will be made available in our whitelisted mint. Players can mint up to 5 Buds.
- Buds may be made available in our public mint. No limit on number of Buds minted.
- 300 Buds will be Auctioned in-game using SFL
- 100 Buds will be used in giveaways for contributors + lead-up competitions
- 100 Buds will be reserved for the Goblin Treasury for special events and game giveaways
The buds will be made available through Open Sea's Drop system.
Whitelisted spots take preference over public mint, but do not guarantee you will mint a bud.
If you do not want to miss out on minting a bud, we highly recommend you to secure a Bud Ticket to join the Guaranteed Drop. See details below.
The buds will become available on Open Sea on the 26th of September. We will decide on a time of day which is most convenient for majority of our player base and announce it well in advance.
Each drop will increase in price. If you want access to a cheaper bud, make sure you participate in the earlier drops.
*Whitelist positions are an approximation and may end up in more or less.
For the OS drops the token required to mint will be in MATIC. If MATIC is valued at $0.69 at the time of minting, you will need ~100 MATIC for the Guaranteed Drop.
1000 Players will be given a guaranteed spot to mint a Bud. To earn a guaranteed spot, players must craft a "Bud Ticket" inside of Sunflower Land.
Bud tickets will become available at the Auctioneer on the following dates
Players only require 1 Bud ticket to purchase up to 2 Buds. Every player with a Bud ticket is guaranteed an opportunity to purchase 2 Buds.
A "Bud Ticket" does not include the Bud NFT. You must then mint then bud in the Guaranteed drop for $69.99
10 Bud Tickets will be allocated for marketing, streaming and influencer purposes.
Sunflower Land will be providing a whitelist to give exclusive access to mint your bud before the public. This does not guarantee you will mint a bud, but it does give you an easier chance compared to the public mint, and at a cheaper price.
The whitelist will consist of:
- 1,000 positions from the guaranteed mint list
- Top 1000 Players by experience
- Holders of special collectibles inside of Sunflower Land.
- Whitelist giveaways on social media and to other NFT projects.
There is no limit to the number of whitelist spots, but we estimate ~6,000 spots will be available.
The whitelist will be snapshotted on the 22nd of September for experience & special collectibles. At that point in time you must be in the top 1000 Bumpkins by experience or have those items on your farm.
Any of the following collectibles will make you eligible for the whitelist:
Christmas Tree, Kuebiko, Foreman Beaver, Golden Cauliflower, Emerald Turtle, Gold Egg, Iron Idol, Farm Cat, Hoot, Mysterious Parsnip, Chicken Coop, Carrot Sword, Farm Dog, Nugget, Cabbage Girl, Maximus, Black Bearry, Gnome, Apprentice Beaver, Sunflower Rock & Sir Goldensnout
The following wearables will also make you eligible for the whitelist: Devil Wings, Angel Wings, Green Amulet, Sunflower Shield, Skull Hat, Parsnip, Squid Hat, Whale Hat, Harry's Hat & Golden Spatula.
You only need 1 of these items above to get yourself a whitelist position.
You can only have a maximum of 1 Whitelist position, but you can mint up to 5 buds in this allocation.
If you had a Guaranteed Drop position, you automatically have a spot in the Whitelist Drop. Your capacity to mint in the Whitelist is stacked on top of your Guaranteed spot i.e. you can mint a combined 7 Buds as part of both the Guaranteed & Whitelist positions.
The remaining Buds will then become available for the general public to mint. This drop will last longer than the previous ones to help accommodate for more timezones. Once the supply is exhausted, the Open Sea drops will be officially ended.
On September 28th, players will be able to visit Pumpkin Plaza and go to the Auction house. This is your last chance to attain a bud!
300 Buds will be made available over 2 drop periods. Whichever players bid the most SFL, will win these remaining buds.
Following the Open Sea and in-game Auctions, the bud NFTs will be revealed. All minted + giveaway buds will reveal their image, characteristics + buff. Players will be able to import their buds into the game and start their farming adventures!
The remaining 100 to be used for future giveaways will remain as a seedling until airdropped
As always, a huge part of any feature in Sunflower Land is the involvement of the community. To celebrate the launch of the Buds we will be hosting an art competition to help design 10 Unique Hats. Each winner will be airdropped a free Bud
Art competition details will be announced on the 17th of August. Artists will be given templates and guidelines to submit their work.
We will host bonus giveaways to help promote the project. Make sure to follow our Sunflower Land Ambassadors and our Discord Server for updates.
We will also be performing a raffle draw for all of our current players on the 29th of September. 7 Buds will be airdropped for free! Entry requirements include:
- Played within the last 30 days
- Minimum Lvl 10 Bumpkin
This raffle will be based on your Bumpkin's level. The higher your Bumpkin's level, the higher the chance you have of winning.
The team is extremely stoked to bring our players our first-ever NFT drop! We already hold these buds dear to our hearts and are excited to see them appear and evolve throughout Sunflower Land.
Good luck everyone!
Do bud buffs stack? You can place as many buds as you wish on your farm. However, only the best buff for a resource will be applied.
For example, if you have the following buds:
- Plaza Bud (+0.2 Crops) with Acorn Hat (+0.1 Wood)
- Wood Lands Bud (+0.2 Wood)
- Bud with 3 Leaf Clover (+0.5 Crops)
For each resource, whichever bud has the highest resource buff, that buff will be used. In the above example you would receive the +0.2 Wood & +0.5 Crops
Additional buds will still be seen on the farm.
A bud's buff is additive to other existing farming buffs you have (e.g. Scarecrows)
How long do I need to wait until my bud is revealed? Once the Open Sea Drops + In-Game Auctions are completed we will perform the grand reveal. This will likely take a couple of days.
Can I mint multiple buds? Yes, you can mint multiple buds. However, each phase has the following limits on how many you can mint:
- 1.Guaranteed Drop - up to 2 Buds.
- 2.Whitelist Mint - up to 5 Buds.
- 3.Public Mint - unlimited.
You can participate in each phase, assuming you have met the requirements.
How many Whitelist spots are available? There is no max limit to whitelist spots available.
