LVL 2

The Earth2® Property Locator (EPL) is a unique global identifier Player’s can upgrade on their property. It provides a similar function as a URL to a website yet for now, in it’s initial release, is universal and more simplified. The EPL allows users to overwrite the standard cryptic identifier with a more user friendly and discoverable word or phrase. These words or phrases are unique and therefore limited and being universal will have limited availability. Moving forward, EPLs will be an integral part of the Earth 2® platform, be key in connectivity and will even have their own dedicated premium Earth 1 portal.

 

Upgrading an EPL on your property will make it memorizable, searchable and ultimately another layer of discoverability in addition to it’s real world geographical location. EPLs will not only serve purpose throughout Phase 2 but also in Phase 3, enabling users to teleport directly to your property location by inputting the reserved EPL.

The Earth 2® Teleportation System will be part of a future update and will be explained in a separate section at a later date.

Introduction to EPLs

Every Earth 2® property holds a unique EPL generated using numbers and letters which correspond with the property Deed.

 

Any player can upgrade their Property’s EPL to a name of their choice using the following guidelines:

  • The Property has to be a Tier 1 Property. Tier 2 Properties' EPL cannot be upgraded.
  • You will need E$ or Essence to upgrade an EPL at present. There are two ways to pay for the EPL:
    • with E$: Standard pricing will be E$9.95 per EPL for the original claim of ownership but as a special limited promotion will be discounted to E$4.95 and will include at least 24 months before any type of renewal is required.
    • with Essence: For a duration of 60 days after the official launch of EPLs or until user to user trading of Essence becomes available, whichever happens first, the price will be set to 100 Essence per property for the first two properties a user buys. After this time period or after the second EPL has been purchased with Essence the pricing will update to 400 Essence if it is not already determined by the market price for Essence (see next point).
    • Note: Once user to user trade with Essence becomes possible, this price will be determined by the free market. From that point in time the exchange rate between the EPL price in E$ and the amount of Essence it will cost will be determined in real-time by the current exchange rate.
  • At some point in the future, EPLs will require an annual renewal fee. Why are we charging? Well, this not only assists with ongoing Earth 2® general supply costs, after all we need to create sustainable longevity on Earth 2®, but will also incentivize Players to actively utilize their EPL and avoid mass hoarding.

    Importantly, there are future plans which will allow users to sell their EPLs on an open market in addition to being able to sell the EPL combined with their property.

  • The size of the property and class of the tiles will affect what name you’re able to reserve and within those constraints the name must have a minimum length of 4-7 characters and a maximum of 36 characters.
  • Please, be respectful when choosing your EPLs as they are subject to an ongoing blacklist of blocked words.

    • When choosing a name for an EPL, all reasonable community standards in terms of respect for other people and youth protection guidelines apply.
    • In this regard, if we can reasonably assume malicious intent in the selection of the EPL, we reserve the right to sanction against the account in addition to a withdrawal of the EPL.

If you think a player is not respecting the rules listed above or if you have any other question, please do not hesitate to contact our Support Team

EPL’s 48 hour Protection Period

We acknowledge the time and effort put into Earth 2® by the creators of community projects and are therefore introducing some rules to safeguard the names of establishedEarth 2® Projects, Guilds and Megacities being claimed as Earth 2® Property Locators (EPLs).

The rules are as follows:

  • The names of established Earth 2® Projects, Guilds and Megacities that existed before this announcement will have 48 hours to claim their respective EPLs after the countdown completes at 1pm September 8, 2021
  • Should another Earth 2® player claim your Project, Guild or Megacity name as an EPL within the first 48 hours you may lodge a dispute and the case will be reviewed and action will be taken accordingly. Evidence must be provided from you to demonstrate your claim to the name.
  • Only 1 dispute per Project, Guild or Megacity's Owner can be lodged.

To lodge a dispute, please visit Support Team

We understand that some players were concerned about their established names being intentionally claimed by others and have introduced these rules to protect those members of our community.

For additional support, questions or for more information, please do not hesitate to contact our Community Management Team via Discord at any time.

How to set up your EPL

In order to upgrade an EPL, follow these steps:

  • Log in into your Earth 2® account.
  • Open the Profile page.
  • Click to open the Property Card of the property you want to upgrade the EPL for.
  • Scroll down to the Section below the property’s photo and the Upgrade EPL button can be seen

     
  • Choose a currency with which you want to pay: E-Dollars or Essence. Currencies that do not hold enough balance currently will be greyed out and inactive. If your balance is sufficient, the button will be active, and clicking it will make a text box appear.

     
  • You can now enter your desired EPL while adhering to the requirements listed in the section above. On the right side of the text box you find information about the possible lengths of the EPL.

     
  • Once done, choose the payment method, a notification message will appear with additional information about the process. If the EPL chosen is already in use by another user or has a match on our blacklist, you will be notified and asked to enter a different EPL.
     

    Note that if you do not own enough E$ for the transaction, you can buy E$ in the Settings Menu of your account or earn them by trading properties or resources like Jewels.

    Note: In order to prevent auto-reserving, bots and keep network traffic minimal, only one EPL can be bought every 2 minutes.

    Managing EPLs

    If successful, the EPL will show up in this section and you will receive a unique URL to your property which will be E2.me/<YourEPL>.

    Renaming the EPL after the first upgrade will require E$1.00 or 80 Essence, and your previous EPL will become available to other Players

    After choosing a new EPL name, select a payment option; a notification message will appear with additional information about the process. You can always cancel the process by selecting Cancel.

     

    You can also Copy and Share the EPL's link by clicking one of the buttons on the right.
    This How-To guide can be also found by clicking the little grey question mark icon.

     

    Renaming Limitations

    We aware that, in order to prevent fraudulent activity while selling properties holding custom EPL’s, you are not able to alter an EPL while a Bid is in place.
     

    To Rename an EPL, be sure no Bids are active for the selected property.
