Team Dakota, after hearing feedback from beta testers for the Project Spark
beta, have decided to implement some pretty significant title changes. Apparently the community was not a big fan of having a limit on how much Spark Time they were allotted.
Here are the changes that Team Dakota updated to Project Spark
Spark Time has been removed
-Players will be able to play anything created in Project Spark, without any time limitation or DLC ownership requirement.
Spark Power is now Spark Premium
-Spark Premium bonuses will remain at 200% of credits earned and 200% of XP earned.
-We’ve slightly reduced the price of 30 days of Spark Premium and have added 3 month, 6 month, and 12 month options.
Upload Slots have changed
-We changing the number of upload slots to better accommodate both casual and highly engaged creators.
-Users who download and play Project Spark as of today (3/18/2014) will have a default three (3) upload slots after creating their free Project Spark account
-All accounts activated via beta key during our closed beta program (played the game prior to 12:01am Pacific on 3/18) will continue to have the five (5) free slots. Thanks for your help during our closed beta.
Additional Upload Slots can be unlocked by purchasing Spark Premium
-Our long-term creators have been making more awesome creations than they’ve had upload slots, limiting their ability to share. Spark Premium now comes with a bonus of additional slots:
- Two (2)permanent additional upload slots with purchase of 3 months of Spark Premium.
- Five (5) permanent additional upload slots with purchase of 6 months of Spark Premium.
- Twelve (12) permanent additional upload slots with purchase of 12 months of Spark Premium.
Gamers acquired Spark Power to receive the benefits of the unlimited Spark Time will also be compensated as well.
Anyone who acquired 30 days of Spark Power within the last 30 days (as of 3/18/2014) will automatically receive (within the next few days):
- 24,000 credits. (the previous cost of a month of Spark Power)
- Continued XP and Credit bonus until their current Spark Power time runs out.
