World Number 2 - Frequently Asked Questions





General Information

General Information

The World Number 2 was created as a digital alternative to the world around you. This gives you a great opportunity to explore all of the interesting things the world has to offer without any of the clutter.

The goal is to have everyone own a small piece of digital real estate and be surrounded be great companies, experts, and VR experiences. This way everyone can communicate safely, live in harmony, and learn from each other.

The inspiration came from the fact that everything in the real world around you is pretty much accounted for. Most land is owned, most building are leased or purchased, and everything you see around you belongs to someone. We decided to take a different approach by creating a new world where the ownership could restart and give many people a unique opportunity.

Transportation and Travel

Transportation and Travel

The best and easiest way to travel from city to city is using the highways and roads. There will always be a direct link from the adjacent city. Trains, boats, and other forms of transportation are always great options. You will only be able to travel by train from one city to another if both cities have train stations that are directly linked by the railway. Airports are only in a few cities in the region, and can only carry you to other airports, bypassing any other stops.

Currently, there are roads, highways, trains, planes, boats, and tunnels. More modes of transportation will be added as the region grows.

The whole point is to explore. This way you can discover more interesting things along your journey!

Partially. If your neighbor or someone down the street from your house that you wish to chat with has a link(s) to their social media displayed, you can contact them using this method. The logic behind this is that if you live in a neighborhood or an area, you cannot automatically contact any neighbor you want. You can meet them in passing or you might already know them. This gives way to a unique "social media" aspect of World Number 2, while keeping a respectful distance for people who do not wish to interact.

Economy [BETA]

Economy of World Number 2

Yes. It is a BETA version of a reward percentage system. The user will gain property value as more properties are acquired.

The total land value of all purchased properties is calculated. A percentage, which is directly based on the number of purchased properties, is taken from that land value. This final number is divided among all properties for a net increase. This will be the new price of your property when you are eligible to sell it.

This benefits you because the more people buy houses in World Number 2, the more money you can make off the sales of your existing properties because of the land value increases.
