[Free] IPFS Plugin

Full description on the product page.

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol, hypermedia and file-sharing peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system. IPFS uses content-addressing to uniquely identify each file in a global namespace connecting IPFS hosts. IPFS allows users to host and receive content in a manner similar to BitTorrent. As opposed to a centrally located server, IPFS is built around a decentralized system.

What you can do with the plugin?

· Store and share user-created content by string (JSON), textures, and sound waves.

· Store savegame files – to store references, classes, and other game-related objects.

· Read properties from NFTs using the metadata standard.

· Stream textures directly into memory to use in materials.

· Distribute game updates and packages via IPFS.

· Distribute Gameplay Features via IPFS.

· Create a virtual art gallery.

For who is it?
For any project that needs to store data or user-created content that is considered large in size. After uploading to IPFS all you need to do is store the CID identifier locally. Content can be recreated on any machine having the CID reference.

Modular Gameplay Features distribution
IPFS allows you to store build gameplay features, and distribute them. As they can be loaded at runtime – this solution would allow downloading and initialising a feature without leaving the game at all.
Features can be patches, updates, content packs, cosmetics packs, maps and other types of content.
Highly suited to game modding content distribution.
