July 15, Beijing Xiaomi Mobile Software Co., Ltd. applied for a patent for “reproducible virtual character image parameters generation method, device and storage medium” was authorized.
The patent specification shows that there are currently some role-raising applications, through which users can adopt virtual characters, and then feed and dress up the virtual characters, in order to obtain the fun of raising virtual characters. In the relevant technology, the image of the virtual character adopted by the user is fixed, and this way of generating a virtual character is relatively single. To solve the problems in the related art, the present disclosure provides a method, apparatus and storage medium for generating image parameters of a reproducible virtual character.
Said method comprises.
receiving a trigger signal for generating a virtual character
obtaining generation rules for image parameters of the virtual character, the image parameters comprising n feature parameters for indicating an image of the virtual character
generating, for the i-th feature parameter, a gene sequence for the i-th feature parameter according to the generation rule
determining the image parameters of the virtual character based on the gene sequences of the n feature parameters.
It is described that the present disclosure can generate virtual characters with different images according to different gene sequences, i.e., the images of the generated virtual characters are unpredictable, increasing the interest of generating virtual characters; it can also combine the virtual character generation method with blockchain technology to store the information of the virtual characters with blockchain technology, in order to use the transparency and decentralization of the blockchain technology to ensure that the virtual characters are The blockchain technology is used to store virtual role information, in order to use the transparent and decentralized characteristics of blockchain technology to ensure that the virtual role is unique, irreproducible and destroyed.
Xiaomi has previously launched a virtual rabbit pet “Crypto Rabbit” using blockchain technology, which was launched in 2018 and will be taken offline on March 1, 2022. The official announcement said that there is still a lot of room for improvement in the functions and gameplay of the crypto rabbit, so major adjustments had to be made.
The official announcement says that in Crypto Rabbit, all Crypto Rabbits are recorded in a decentralized way, and they are unique. Once owned by you, they cannot be copied, modified or destroyed by anyone. Your crypto rabbit image is made up of a random combination of genes. Each gene will have both [Rare] and [Normal] attributes.
The number and type of rare genes contained in the crypto rabbit will determine the level of the TA, and your crypto rabbit may be any of [Legendary], [Epic], [Rare], [Rare], or [Normal].
The [Generation] of an encryption rabbit is the [Generation] higher of both parents plus 1. As the [Generation] grows, the rarity of the encryption rabbit decreases. The low-generation crypto rabbits such as [Generation 0] and [Generation 1] are definitely the darlings of the market.
Encrypted rabbits not only chat with their owners, but also go out from time to time to meet online friends, fall in love, give birth to rabbit babies, attend conferences…
The crypto rabbits may conceive rabbit babies after going out. The rabbit will grow into an encrypted rabbit after it is successfully bid, but its genes are unknown until it becomes an encrypted rabbit.
Use a carrot to bid on a Rabbit. At the end of an auction, the successful bidder will receive the Encrypted Rabbit, and the initiator of the Rabbit will receive the carrot.
