# Solseum NFT Generator for Solana! ### Creating your randomized uniques NFTs, getting rarity information and displaying it on a webpage has never been easier! ###### tags: `solana` `nfts` `generator` `tutorials` `free` ## RARITY OF CREATED NFTs ADDED! --- Hello *Art Enjoyers*, **WrathionTBP** here. I'm the main developer of [***Solseum***: **Online VR Solana Museum**](https://www.solseum.com), a *metaverse* where you, your friends and other users can interact while enjoy our art collections and all the other collections that you, users, want to share with the entire community. One of our objectives as a team, is **share all of our knowledge and tools** with the entire world!. The main reason to do this is because we want to use our museum to show the pieces of art that other developers create and the NFTs that users own and want to share. Today I come to **share with you our NFT generator** that we will use for our Art Collection called ***GanSol*** (If u are interested in our project you can read more about at [***https://www.solseum.com***](https://www.solseum.com), also follow us on [***Twitter***](https://twitter.com/SolseumNFT) and join to our [***Discord server***](https://discord.com/invite/RGCNdGvcNe)). [![](https://media.giphy.com/media/EMQdaHFmsnA5eQIq0H/giphy.gif)](https://www.solseum.com) --- So… the ==main questions== that you should have right now is: **How its differ from the others NFT Generator?**, **and why should I use it?**. ==The answer are listed below==: 1. Let the users to **create automatically unique PNG+Json pairs**, on a layer based system, **for different purposes** like Whitelists, Giveaways and Public Mint **at the same time**.  2. Also allows to **output the NFTs in a random order** in relation to how they were generated.  3. In addition, this tool support a **color based rarity system that uses weights for each item**.  4. Aswell, this tool will **automatically produce colored plots/charts for the rarities** each attribute.  5. This will make an **easy-to-map json to design an rarity page for your project**. 6. And last but not least, you will obtain the **Rarity Ranking** of your NFTs using a ***Rarity Score System*** (explained at the end of [***this thread***](https://raritytools.medium.com/ranking-rarity-understanding-rarity-calculation-methods-86ceaeb9b98c)) *(soon exportable to a react webpage!)*. This and more ==**WITHOUT CODING ANYTHING!!!**==, so grab your glass of water and prepare to learn with us!. --- ## :thinking_face: What does our NFTs Generator offer? This NFT Generator allows the user to **create up to three completly unique assets folder with no duplicated NFTs**. In addition, **NFTs can be randomized** (the 0.png and 0.json can be the NFT #1564 instead of NFT #1). Lastly, you can **test the rarities of your attributes** without generate any NFT, because **generating 10000 NFTs takes some time**. | Features | Short Command | Description | Example | | ----------------- |:----------------------- | ----------------- |:------------------ | | Create Public NFTs| **-p <*N*>** | Generate *N* uniques png+json data to create a Public Candy Machine. ***[default=0]***|**`python3 main.py -p 800`** or **`py main.py -p 800`**| | Create Whitelist NFTs | **-w <*N*>** |Generate *N* uniques png+json data to create a Whitelist Candy Machine. ***[default=0]***|**`python3 main.py -w 300`** or **`py main.py -w 300`** | | Create Giveaways NFTs| **-g <*N*>** |Generate *N* uniques png+json data to create a Giveaway Candy Machine. ***[default=0]***|**`python3 main.py -g 100`** or **`py main.py -g 100`**| |Test rarities | **-t 1** |Generate a sample of a **-p <*N*>** + **-w <*N*>** + **-g <*N*>** NFTs, storing the easy-to-map json and the rarity plots without creating NFTs. ***[default=False]***| **`python3 main.py -w 3333 -g 100 -t 1`** or **`py main.py -w 3333 -g 100 -t 1`**| | Randomize NFTs output | **-r 1** | Shuffle the output of the entire NFT collection to allow a mint in no particular order. ***[default=False]***|**`python3 main.py -p 2200 -w 578 -g 100 -r 1`** or **`py main.py -p 2200 -w 578 -g 100 -r 1`**| >You can mix the values of **-p <*N*>**, **-w <*N*>** and **-g <*N*>** as you wish!. >You can see this info using: **`python3 main.py -h`**. >If you are using a newer version of python use: **`py main.py -h`**. Also we **generate colored plots** for each attributes. The colors depends on the percentage of occurrence of each item in a attribute. The following image is an example of the **rarity distribution** for the attribute *border dots* using a sample of 9500 NFTs. ![](https://i.imgur.com/fRO5OWy.png) Finally, we generate a **json file containing all the information of the rarity distribution of each attribute**. This file can be **easily mapped in React**, which allows you to **generate a page to display the rarities to your users!** We generated a very basic rarity page by mapping the json file located in *output/rarity* and displaying the items from the *assets* folder located in *input*, an extract of this page is shown in the following image [**(how to do it here)**](https://github.com/Solseum/react-rarities-json-to-website). ![](https://i.imgur.com/A60yK5F.png) >**You can modify `main.py` to change the default values of the *rarity colors*, *rarity names*, *rarity percentages* and also you can add more than 3 output assets for extra Candy Machines!.** --- ## :memo: What do I need? ### Step 1: Check if you have this installed! - [ ] Command [***git*** **installed**](https://git-scm.com/download) on your PC. - [ ] [**Python3 installed**](https://www.python.org/downloads/) on your PC - [ ] An code editor like [**VS Code**](https://code.visualstudio.com/Download), [**Sublime Text**](https://www.sublimetext.com/download), **Notepadd**, etc. - [ ] An **terminal** to run the commands. ### Step 2: Install the tool To start creating ur uniques NFTs for Solana you will have to ***clone*** **our github repository**. Open your terminal and execute the followings commands: 1. `git clone https://github.com/Solseum/solseum-nft-generator.git` 2. `cd solseum-nft-generator` 3. `python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt` ### Step 3: Be one with the folders! In this section we will explain it to you how is the hierarchy of the project. **Don't erase any folder unless we said that can be modified!** The following image shows you the root directory of this project. ![image alt ><](https://i.imgur.com/Y1Ma2uw.png) The *root* directory has three folders, one python code and the requirements that allow you to run this project. --- The *includes* folder is where the magic happens, and has four files python that allows you to use all the functions that we offer. You can check the content in the image below ![image alt ><](https://i.imgur.com/o4TLZDW.png) --- The ***input*** folder is the most important on the entire project. This is the place that you have to modify. ![image alt ><](https://i.imgur.com/c3ySvHo.png) The *template.json* has the following format: ```json= { "name": "Cute Squares", "symbol": "CS", "description": "Cutest squares on Solana Network!!", "seller_fee_basis_points": 500, "image": "image.png", "external_url": "YOUR WEBPAGE", "attributes": [ ], "collection": { "name": "Solana Cute Squares", "family": "Solseum NFT Generator" }, "properties": { "files": [ { "uri": "image.png", "type": "image/png" } ], "category": "image", "creators": [ { "address": "GaPBj9cKX3DixkispB3WhqYcrhb6Uz3PhqWyk5DB31k1", "share": 90 }, { "address": "2QvVjytnfYyFJUnVC9xGu3ejjVTNDzTUjfvodrn6NVcn", "share": 10 } ] } } ``` The fields that you must edit are: 1. ***name***, 2. ***symbol***, 3. ***description***, 4. ***seller_fee_basis_points*** (500 means 5% of royalties, 1000 means 10%), 5. ***external_url***, 6. ***name*** inside **collection**, 7. ***family*** inside **collection**, 8. all the ***address*** and ***share*** in **properties-creators** (you need an minimum of 1 and a maximum of 5, you can erase or add until that limit!). **BE SURE THAT THE SUM OF ALL THE *share* VALUES IS EXACTLY EQUAL TO 100!.** >You can always check the ***Token Metadata Standard*** at [**Metaplex docs**](https://docs.metaplex.com/nft-standard) and in this [**Medium post**](https://medium.com/metaplex/metaplex-metadata-standard-45af3d04b541) The *assets* folder (inside ***input***, showed in the image below) has one folder for each attribute that your NFT will use. This project includes by default 6 differente attributes. >**A very important thing** is that the **folders MUST be numbered from 0 to X** (0 to 6 in our case). **This number means the order in which the layers will be pasted** (from 0 to X). >**The separation between the layer number and the layer name must be with the symbol - and the symbol _ will act as spaces in the layer name.** >For example the folder **4-simple_draw** means that it is **layer 4** and the **attribute will be named as Simple draw**. ![](https://i.imgur.com/OTSFGdx.png) Within an attribute folder you will find all the items, of that attribute, that can be selected to create an NFT. The image below shows the items for the fifth layer (watermark). >**All the items between all the attributes HAS TO HAVE THE SAME PIXEL SIZE (our example occupies images of 600x600 pixels)**. >**The separation between the prefix number and the item name must be with the symbol - and the symbol _ will act as spaces in the item name.** >If you observe the image below, u will noticed a prefix number after the actual item name. This is **mandatory** and the meaning of this number is *the number of occurrences of this item when you create a number of NFTs equal to the sum of all the prefix numbers of the attribute.* >For example the sum of our prefix numbers are 100 (1+3+6+12+30+48 = 100), so the items should appear 1, 3, 6, 12, 30 and 48 times in a sample of 100 NFTs respectively. >*We recommend that the sum of prefix number in a attribute has to be 100 so u can work with percentages.* ![](https://i.imgur.com/21SpmfQ.png) In this tutorial we will use the asset folder included in the project, ==**you can always upload your own *assets* folder (replace the folders inside assets), just make sure you follow the format showed before.**== --- The *output* folder is where the **metadata pairs** and **rarity info** will be generated (*nfts* and *rarity* respectively). ![](https://i.imgur.com/EAG1qhM.png) --- ## :notebook: How I use the program? Here you will find some examples commands and what should be the output of each commands!. ==**We recommend creating a total number of NFTs less than or equal to 20% of your possible number of combinations. This is because the larger ammount of NFTs you create, higher chances has a the rarest items to appear, and you dont want that :eyes:.**== 1. **`python3 main.py -p 2500 -g 101 -w 1500`** * **2500 NFTs** will be created at *output/nfts/public_mint_assets*. * **1500 NFTs** will be created at *output/nfts/whitelist_mint_assets*. * **101 NFTs** will be created at *output/nfts/giveaway_assets*. * The NFTs output will **DON'T be randomized**. * All the NFTs will be **uniques**. * Rarity charts will use **4101 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/plots*. * Rarity json will use **4101 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/raritiesToReactMap.json*. 2. **`python3 main.py -g 500 -p 25 -r 1`** * **25 NFTs** will be created at *output/nfts/public_mint_assets*. * **500 NFTs** will be created at *output/nfts/giveaway_assets*. * The NFTs output will **BE randomized**. * All the NFTs will be **uniques**. * Rarity charts will use **525 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/plots*. * Rarity json will use **525 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/raritiesToReactMap.json*. 3. **`python3 main.py -w 2333 -r 1`** * **2333 NFTs** will be created at *output/nfts/whitelist_mint_assets*. * The NFTs output will **BE randomized**. * All the NFTs will be **uniques**. * Rarity charts will use **2333 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/plots*. * Rarity json will use **2333 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/raritiesToReactMap.json*. 4. **`python3 main.py -w 100 -p 15 -r 1 -t 1`** * **0 NFTs** will be created. * Rarity charts will use 115 NFTs to be created at *output/rarity/plots*. * Rarity json will use 115 NFTs to be created at *output/rarity/raritiesToReactMap.json*. 5. **`python3 main.py -g 10000 -t 1`** * **0 NFTs** will be created. * Rarity charts will use **10000 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/plots*. * Rarity json will use **10000 NFTs** to be created at *output/rarity/raritiesToReactMap.json*. --- ## :rocket: Let's start creating NFTs! After you install the *requeriments.txt* and **follow the format** to uses ur assets and **modify the template.json**, you are ready to generate ur own collection of NFTs. In this example we want to **create 2 Candy machines**, one for **public minting** with 9500 NFTs and the other for **whitelist/presale** with 500 NFTs. But first I want to test how the rarities of my items will look, to see the distribution per item. So I run the following code: **`python3 main.py -p 9500 -w 500 -t 1`** This creates in output/rarity/plots the rarity distribution for all the attributes. If the rarity distribution of a certain attribute does not suit me, I can change the prefix numbers of the items in that attribute to change the distribution until I like it. After some testing I finally likes how the rarity distribution is looking for each attribute, so I can go and generate the NFTs, but I want that the NFTs be generated without an order so it can be minted randomly. So I run the following code: **`python3 main.py -p 9500 -w 500 -r 1`** When the code finnishes executing I want to see if really the NFTs were generated in a randomly order, so I do open the folder *output/nfts/public_mint_assets* and open the 0.json. If the 0.json *name field* has a number different than #1, it means that the randomization worked. So I open the 0.json file: ```json= { "name": "Cute Squares #155", "symbol": "CS", "description": "Cutest squares on Solana Network!!", "seller_fee_basis_points": 500, "image": "image.png", "external_url": "YOUR WEBPAGE", "attributes": [ { "trait_type": "Background", "value": "Orange" }, { "trait_type": "Border color", "value": "Cyan border" }, { "trait_type": "Border dots", "value": "Dark blue dots" }, { "trait_type": "Example text", "value": "Example 6" }, { "trait_type": "Simple draw", "value": "Nothing" }, { "trait_type": "Watermark", "value": "Down middle" }, { "trait_type": "Border mark", "value": "1 both sides" } ], "collection": { "name": "Solana Cute Squares", "family": "Solseum NFT Generator" }, "properties": { "files": [ { "uri": "image.png", "type": "image/png" } ], "category": "image", "creators": [ { "address": "GaPBj9cKX3DixkispB3WhqYcrhb6Uz3PhqWyk5DB31k1", "share": 90 }, { "address": "2QvVjytnfYyFJUnVC9xGu3ejjVTNDzTUjfvodrn6NVcn", "share": 10 } ] } } ``` So the name of 0.json is the #155, great!. Now I want to see if the attributes are the same in the picture, so I open the 0.png: ![](https://i.imgur.com/s0qmMos.png) So finally I want to see if my whitelist get randomized, as I already created 9500 nfts, if it is not randomized then the 0.json of my whitelist should start with 9501. So I open the folder *output/nfts/whitelist_mint_assets* to open the json and I found the following: ```json= { "name": "Cute Squares #314", "symbol": "CS", "description": "Cutest squares on Solana Network!!", "seller_fee_basis_points": 500, "image": "image.png", "external_url": "YOUR WEBPAGE", "attributes": [ { "trait_type": "Background", "value": "Orange" }, { "trait_type": "Border color", "value": "Cyan border" }, { "trait_type": "Border dots", "value": "Magenta dots" }, { "trait_type": "Example text", "value": "Example 4" }, { "trait_type": "Simple draw", "value": "Paw" }, { "trait_type": "Watermark", "value": "Middle right" }, { "trait_type": "Border mark", "value": "1 both sides" } ], "collection": { "name": "Solana Cute Squares", "family": "Solseum NFT Generator" }, "properties": { "files": [ { "uri": "image.png", "type": "image/png" } ], "category": "image", "creators": [ { "address": "GaPBj9cKX3DixkispB3WhqYcrhb6Uz3PhqWyk5DB31k1", "share": 90 }, { "address": "2QvVjytnfYyFJUnVC9xGu3ejjVTNDzTUjfvodrn6NVcn", "share": 10 } ] } } ``` It has the number 314 so I only need to see if the png match with the attributes and I'm ready to upload the files to the Candy Machines. I open the 0.png for *whitelist*: ![](https://i.imgur.com/9RUDF0c.png) And the images is also correct so I can upload my two Candy Machines. Also, with the images uploaded you can already **create your rarity page in your webpage** using the json file ***output/rarity/raritiesToReactMap.json*** data and customize as you want! [**(how to do it here)**](https://github.com/Solseum/react-rarities-json-to-website). We create a really basic rarity webpage that used this example nfts, you can check here it [**https://nft-map.vercel.app/**](https://nft-map.vercel.app/). --- ## :video_camera: Video explanation comming soon!
