MadPea Halloween Hunt 2018 Experience

The MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt has come to a close on November 4th, and wow – what a ride! I’ve got some awesome sims to share with you! I’m not the biggest fan of Halloween, but MadPea really stepped up this year with some new exciting features this time around. More on that below – but first, EXPLORATION!

I really love seeing the creativity of the community, especially during Halloween time – they go all out for the spooky holiday! There are lots of haunted sims this time around, and each one was so fun to explore.

My MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt Adventure

Day 1  – Aquila III Research Station

Aquila III Research Station | Mine & Yours

The Aquila III Research Station is always in the MadPea Hunt, and every time I go, I do enjoy hunting there. I featured this sim during the summer hunt, but this time, I wanted to showcase a creepier section of the sim that was decorated specifically for Halloween. I love the alien nature of this world. There’s something so intriguing about this extraterrestrial scene that I had to capture what I saw!

Day 2 – Ethereal Sanctuary

Ethereal Sanctuary | Mine & Yours

Next stop, Ethereal Sanctuary. Also another frequent of MadPea Hunts but always so beautiful each and every time I go. There seems to be something new I discover with each visit! I like this particular spot on the sim because it has a beautiful overlook of the ocean. Beautifully decorated for peaceful rest, I spent some time here just listening to the relaxing waves of the sea.

Day 3  – Hocus Pocus – Avada Kedavra

Hocus Pocus - Avada Kedavra | Mine & Yours

This haunting sim was a delight to explore. At first glance, this Hocus Pocus sim seemed quite barren, but after walking around, I found quite a few great photographic scenes. This sim is no longer decorated at the time of writing as it prepares for Christmas, but I had to share such a great capture of the location.

Day 4 – Montfort l’Amaury – La porte Bardoul

Montfort l'Amaury | Mine & Yours

Montfort l’Amaury is an 18th century roleplay sim, rich with history and story. A village high with manors and maisons des champs, Montfort L’Amaury is full of detail and an abundance of opportunity. This scene that I captured as soon as I enter town was too beautiful to pass up. I loved the look with its quaint charm yet holds so much more story the further the path continues.

Day 5 – Naruga City

Naruga City | Mine & Yours

I was delighted to come across Siya Ellsworth’s awesome contribution to the MadPea hunt in Naruga City. This sim features a thoroughly decorated haunted mansion in an amazing sim owned by Siya, featuring a creepy storyline for all to enjoy as hunters move through the mansion. Recorders are placed throughout the establishment, giving hunters a taste of the creepiness and chaotic events recorded of the spirits that haunt the area.

Day 6 – The Peak – Romance and Beyond

The Peak - Romance and Beyond | Mine & Yours

The Peak is a beautiful sim perfect for a romantic date for that special someone in your life. Open to the public (except for the rented areas), couples can explore the land or just enjoy romantic moments together. For more intimate and private spaces, couples may rent vacation rentals for a maximum of two weeks at various themed spots such as beach cabins, honeymoon vacation homes, private skyboxes or secluded farmhouse.

And that wraps up my MadPea Halloween Hunt 2018 traveling adventure! It was a lot of fun for me, and I absolutely loved taking these snapshots whenever I saw something I wanted to capture in the moment. I’d love to see or hear what your favorite sims were!

My Personal Feedback Regarding the Hunt:

1.  Awesome Sim Participation!

I’d have to say that the main motivator for me in doing these hunts is to explore the noncommercial part of SL more. This time’s hunt really did not disappoint because there was not once during my entire hunting period that I was rolling my eyes at another store to walk through. I felt like there was a great balance of commercial properties vs. noncommercial properties. Because of the great blend, it made this hunt an enjoyable breeze to run through.

2. New Huntables!

MadPea retired the ghosts (yay!) and have created these awesome, cute (and collectible) monsters to hunt for! There were so many different monster varieties in three different colors each. Hunting these cute creatures were a blast as each species have very distinct personalities and even different sounds they make when you creep closer to them.

3. Trick or Treat doors!

These Trick or Treat doors are amazing! Unfortunately I was not able to do these last Halloween, but these doors are the best! They give out a random amount of points, little fun Halloween treats, or play tricks on you by taking you to a mini escape room experience! I loved getting rained on by points from these doors but I also quite enjoyed solving these fun little escape room tricks!

4. LET THEM EAT … Points?

I think it is safe to say that competitive cash is a thing of the past, sadly. No more Top 5 overall hunter cash award and no more daily cash reward for the Top 3 hunters. Instead points for the daily top 5 hunters per team were given out.

1000 Points to 1st place
750 Points to 2nd place
500 Points to 3rd place
250 Points to 4th place
100 Points to 5th place

5. Radar \o/

This compact radar definitely made hunting so easy and seamless by allowing hunters to minimize/expand certain trays like the hunt counter and the prize carousel.

  • Favorite Button – This functions a voting button to vote for your favorite sims. The top 10 sims selected by all hunters so far are placed here on their website. Initially, I thought it would also store locations of your (personal) favorite sims, eliminating the need to create Landmarks. Unfortunately, that function does not exist (yet!).
  • Counter that tracks each type of hunt item collected – This is more to track and obtain achievements for the more hardcore MadPea players wanting to rank in the MadPea Player Portal. Check your standings here.
  • Prize Carousel – Shows all the unlocked prizes, allowing scrolling to see more of the unlocked prizes besides just the most recent one. Allows for remote prize redemption!

Possible Add-ons for Future Radars:

  • Favorite Button – Would love if the HUD could store a hunter’s personal favorite sims so they can come back to the sim at the click of a button.
  • Hunt HUD Radar size – Now that the radar is nicely compact, a scaleable option would be nice too. Maybe it is too small for some people now. Maybe it is too big for others on their screen.

6. Awesome Prizes!

There were so really cool prizes for this Halloween hunt though I do wish there were a few more wearables. The final prize is absolutely amazing! It is a mega prize consisting of a Monster Mystery Dollhouse Mansion with all the cute huntable monsters in miniature size! The Mansion includes working lights, music, clock, as well as an interactive mystery to solve with a bonus prize. You did not want to miss out on this prize!! If you haven’t already, check out my other posts here to see what some of the MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt prizes are. All prizes are also showcased on the MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt Website as well as their Facebook page.

Thank you to MadPea for putting on a wonderful hunt for us all to participate in, making this spooky season so much more enjoyable! Also, big thank you to all the sim location participants who placed out monsters for us all to gather. This Halloween Monster hunt would not have been successful without your generosity!

MadPea Puppy Care | Mine & Yours

MadPea recently put on a cute puppy rescue hunt for a brand new exPEAdition, collaborating with The Ghost Bully MC sim to allow all MadPea group members to find the cute lost pups scattered all over the land. As a reward, those who completed the Rally to Rescue were awarded with this super cute MadPea Puppy Care Kit. Since the search effort ended this weekend, those who missed the fun can also purchase the adorable set in the MadPea Marketplace.

MadPea – The Tower

MadPea creates fun puzzle adventure games for those ready for a challenge. The Tower, an escape room puzzle game experience, debuted back in March of last year. It is unknown how much longer this game experience will remain as MadPea likes to rotate out old games for their newer games – so if you haven’t played, go play it before it is gone!

MadPea - The Tower Entrance | Mine & Yours

In The Tower, you’ll find yourself with absolutely no memory. How did you get here? Why are you even here? Who are you even? Perhaps you’ll find the answer once you escape this place by solving a series of challenging puzzles. Have you uncovered the truth and escaped The Tower yet?

Rise to the challenge here!

MadPea - The Tower Cafe | Mine & Yours

To play, you’ll need to purchase the Game HUD for 1000L. This will not only include the essential Tower Game HUD to allow you to advance through levels, but will provide you with an exclusive outfit and themed prizes upon completion.

MadPea - The Tower Lab | Mine & Yours

A few tips:
– Have your sounds on
– Purchase Earpiece Game Enhancing Add-On. This earpiece will offer you some helpful hints and also offers additional voice dialogue that gives a much better immersive experience. Plus I am biased because the voice-over is done by my talented friend, Kilolo Jenkins.
– If you get stuck on a level and have no idea how to get passed it, you can purchase Tower Access Cards which will allow you to bypass the puzzle and advance to the next level. Also note that the MadPea group is full of helpful Peas who may be willing to help out.

MadPea Summer Hunt 2018 Experience

The MadPea Summer Hunt is coming to an end on June 27th (today), and what a blast I had! I’ve got some awesome sims to share with you! The Summer Hunt is always my favorite hunt MadPea hosts because: 1) Summer is always so colorful and lively, making it a fun time for all sorts of activities, 2) A lot of the sims are beautifully and enjoyably summer themed, 3) the prizes are always awesome quality and you can use them all season long.

This time around, there were a lot of great sims to explore. Usually hunts are filled with stores, but this time, I came across a lot more landscaped areas (private residences, communities, public photographic sims) than usual! I do hope this trend continues as I thoroughly enjoyed snapping pictures of my experience.

My MadPea Summer Hunt Adventure

Day 1  – The North Shore at Fairhaven

Stratography East | Mine & Yours

I was so happy to have come across The North Shore at Fairhaven. Above ground there is a beautiful, beachy island scene with surfing and plenty of places to explore. Below ground under sea level was so exciting for me. I absolutely love sims like these where there is an appreciation for aquatic life and the magical world the sea holds. The North Shore was a visual treat for me and I always loved coming back here for some shell hunting. This sim was actually inspired by the real The North Shore in Oahu which is one of the biggest surfing mecca in the world. I am so glad they brought this in world for all to appreciate the many gifts an island gives.

Day 2 – Fairhaven

Stratography | Mine & Yours

Right next to The North Shore is the main area – Fairhaven. An adult beach with a tropical jungle, Fairhaven has many small intimate areas as well as big surf waves to enjoy. Don’t have a surfboard? Don’t worry! There are rezzers all along the island to easily pick up a board and catch some waves. On the ground is the island fun while up in the sky is the actual city of Fairhaven. This rundown city has definitely seen its better days, but is a great spot to explore or take pictures.

Day 3  – Aquila III Research Station

Aquila III Research Station | Mine & Yours

The Aquila III Research Station is quite an interesting place to explore! The land has it’s intrigue and wonder to explore while out in the open is a pleasant tropical sim for some swimming or even surfing! As you can see in my snapshot, I discovered a very interesting wonder while there hunting!

Day 4 – Calypso Bay

Calypso Bay | Mine & Yours

The Silent Cove at Calypso Bay was a fun lil’ pirate cove hosted by fellow Peas: Mathias and Sajiah. Definitely just a popup spot for the hunt while it lasted, but I always looked forward to hunting at this little treasure spot with its strategic seashell placements and the overall lighthearted ambiance.

Day 5 – Ethereal Sanctuary

Ethereal Sanctuary | Mine & Yours

Ethereal Sanctuary is a beautiful, peaceful escape for everyone – dreamers, romantics, dancers, contemplators, explorers alike! Whatever it is you seek, this quiet place can be that bit of heaven you require. There are tons of spots to discover and enjoy here on the island. There is likely something for everyone.

Day 6 – Pegasoi

Pegasoi | Mine & Yours

The Ippos Collective is a group of four fantasy inspired sims that are Rez-Friendly for all to enjoy and capture photos. This wonderous place is where some call home, enjoy the magic that surrounds them (rentable plots available). Each sim has its own charm. For the hunt, I was at Pegasoi which is a fantasy themed, aimed to really support the creative side of individuals. The other sims in the colllective are: Ippos (Lush Island), Nymphai (the Town Square, and Sylpha (Small islands and lots of water).

Day 7 – The Upside Down Wonderland Garden

Vivaldi Wonderland Gardens | Mine & Yours

Wonderland Gardens was a popup maze experience hosted by Kyle Beckett (a MadPea game designer) for MadPea hunters to enjoy (or rip their hairs out). To illustrate why this experience may have been maddening, I took a picture of how I saw things while trying to escape the maze. Everything was upside down!! This little obstacle course was an amusing and entertaining way to collect shells. I definitely appreciate this challenge, as all MadPea fans can agree. It’s just in our nature!

And that wraps up my MadPea Summer Hunt 2018 traveling adventure! It was a lot of fun for me, and I absolutely loved taking these snapshots whenever I saw something I wanted to capture in the moment. I’d love to see or hear what your favorite sims were!

My Personal Feedback Regarding the Hunt:

1.  Awesome Sim Participation!

I’d have to say that the main motivator for me in doing these hunts is to explore the noncommercial part of SL more. This time’s hunt really did not disappoint because there was not once during my entire hunting period that I was rolling my eyes at another store to walk through. I felt like there was a great balance of commercial properties vs. noncommercial properties. Because of the great blend, it made this hunt an enjoyable breeze to run through.

2. LET THEM EAT … Points?

I think it is safe to say that competitive cash is a thing of the past, sadly. No more Top 5 overall hunter cash award and no more daily cash reward for the Top 3 hunters. Instead points for the daily top 5 hunters per team were given out.

1000 Points to 1st place
750 Points to 2nd place
500 Points to 3rd place
250 Points to 4th place
100 Points to 5th place

3. Radar \o/

Yes! Thank you! Radar UI has been changed and this once negative talking point is now a positive! This compact radar definitely made hunting so much sweeter by allowing hunters to minimize/expand certain trays like the hunt counter and the prize carousel.

  • Favorite Button – This functions a voting button to vote for your favorite sims. The top 10 sims selected by all hunters so far are placed here on their website. Initially, I thought it would also store locations of your (personal) favorite sims, eliminating the need to create Landmarks. Unfortunately, that function does not exist (yet!).

  • Prize Carousel – Shows all the unlocked prizes, allowing scrolling to see more of the unlocked prizes besides just the most recent one.

Possible Add-ons for Future Radars:

  • Favorite Button – Would love if the HUD could store a hunter’s personal favorite sims so they can come back to the sim at the click of a button.
  • Hunt HUD Radar size – Now that the radar is nicely compact, a scaleable option would be nice too. Maybe it is too small for some people now. Maybe it is too big for others on their screen.

4. Awesome Prizes!

I always love the prizes for the Summer Hunt. I felt like there was something for everyone. Even if all of the prizes did not appeal to you, I am sure at least one of them would have been a great addition to your avi or home (especially during the summer season!). If you haven’t already, check out my other posts here and here to see what some of the MadPea Summer Hunt prizes are. All prizes are also showcased on the MadPea Summer Hunt Website as well as their Facebook page.

Thank you to MadPea for putting on a wonderful hunt for us all to participate in, making this hot summer season so much more enjoyable! Also, big thank you to all the sim location participants who placed out seashells for us all to gather. This Summer hunt would not have been successful without your generosity!

Summer Cuties Gone Wild

MadPea’s Summer Hunt ends soon on June 27th! Have you been collecting those shells to get some of these prizes? I set up a lil party area for my cuties to enjoy with some of the Summer Hunt prizes as well as some goodies from The Arcade, and boy are they having some wild fun! What are you guys waiting for? Get hunting and win those prizes!

To join the hunt, buy the MadPea Summer Hunt HUD for $L100. For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here.

My latest obsession besides going out shell hunting has been those flippin’ adorable Jaglions from Black Bantam by Stasey Oller out now at The Dubai Event. I love them so much that I carry two with me everywhere I go now. These little cubs are my absolute favorite!

MadPea Summer Hunt 2018 Promo

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN! The MadPea Summer Hunt is always my favorite hunt because I just love everything summer brings: fun in the sun, refreshing swims in the water, popping tropical color all around, and a reason to show more skin 😉 MadPea Summer Hunt has some amazing prizes this time around to hunt for – here is just a taste!

If you aren’t hunting for sea shells, then you are missing out! MadPea’s Summer Hunt runs from June 13th to June 27th, and the hunt is a dynamic experience where all seashell hunters hunt at different sims on a daily basis. Shells are constantly appearing and disappearing, giving hunters plenty of opportunity to rake in those points for prize redemption. Also, there are instant prizes that can be found in oysters, making the hunt a lot more enjoyable with these surprise treats.

To join the hunt, buy the MadPea Summer Hunt HUD for $L100. For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here. I’ll be covering the Summer Hunt a lot more in detail in a later post.

MadPea’s Easter Egg Hunt

The MadPea Easter Egg Hunt is coming to an end on April 5th (tomorrow)! My last post was about the prizes, but this post I want to focus on the notable sims that participated in the hunt as well as some feedback. Like the previous MadPea hunts, my RL tends to consume a lot of my time during these events, but I did try to visit as many sims as I could to capture some magical moments in the adventure.

My MadPea Easter Egg Hunt Adventure

Day 1 – Tagus Enchanted Forest

Tagus | Mine & Yours

When I visited Tagus Enchanted Forest last year, the lush sanctuary was quite pretty. But this year, there’s something much more magical this time around. There’s enchantment and mystery in this beautiful oasis. From thick pine forests to towering waterfall cliffs… to beautiful sandy beaches to dark spiritual corners, Tagus is a land of fantasy for all to enjoy. Home to a variety of animals and creatures, Tagus does offer many opportunities for magical moments.

Tagus 2 | Mine & Yours

Day 2 – Q Isles

I was trolled. In fact, most hunters were as they endured the evil, sinister Easter Bunny that dug a million holes for us all to search through for those prized eggs. Okay, I may have exaggerated. There were only 250. Only. Welcome to the land where I wanted to pull my hair out – Q Isles. Home to fellow Sarai Wise who has graciously entertained us with countless, bottomless hole-y fun, Q Isles definitely made it difficult to find eggs. And successfully caught my attention. GG, Sarai. I did find those eggs. But, yet, I feel like my sanity was lost in the process.

Q Isles | Mine & Yours

Day 3 – Noelia Island

Reunited and it feels so good… We meet again, Noelia Island. And you are still as stunning and beautiful as ever.

Noelia Island 2 | Mine & Yours

Noelia Island is gorgeous in its natural beauty. Identifying as a Mediterranean island, Noelia Island was a welcomed warm paradise with such beautiful serenity. The lush, enchanting green meeting deep, majestic blue is something Livvy and I both love very much. These photos are merely a small part of what this island has to offer.

If you also took pictures at Noelia Island, share them to their Flickr group here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/noelia_island/

Noelia Island | Mine & Yours

Day 4 – Fanci Deep SW

I am a scuba diver in RL so I absolutely love the waters in both worlds. I appreciate when land is dedicated to the colorful and brilliant beauty of the ocean within SL. I was so happy to have come across Fanci Deep SW, only one region out of four in the Fanci Deep sims that welcome all sea creatures and divers to enjoy. Incredibly prime real estate, Fanci Deep is directly connected to the famous Blake Sea. With so much life below and above water from one sim to the next, this is a swimmer’s dream location of endless water and adventure.

Fanci Deep SW | Mine & Yours

My Personal (positive and negative) Feedback – Changes MadPea made from their last hunts:

1. No teams this time around

I am happy the Egg Hunt did not have teams since traditional egg hunts do not typically involve team effort. It more or less preserves that thrilling excitement for those who can’t wait to let their inner Katniss Everdeen out or for those who like to take time in searching for eggs wherever they may be.

2. Still no competitive cash

For the past few hunts, there seems to not be any more daily cash reward for the Top 3 Hunters we saw in the Summer Hunt. Instead points were given out, which I still don’t understand. As mentioned in my previous experience with last year’s Christmas Hunt, if you place in the top spots for hunting, points tend to not mean much and aren’t much of an incentive.

1000 Points to 1st place
750 Points to 2nd place (was 500 points last hunt)
500 Points to 3rd place (was 300 points last hunt)
250 Points to 4th place
100 Points to 5th place

There is a hard cap as to how useful points can be in the hunt system, especially for those who already have enough points to redeem all prizes. The incentive for points does not seem really enticing, especially if the top hunters are already racking up a lot of points already. However, I am glad MadPea upped the points bonus regardless for second and third place since it does guarantee at least one extra Tier 1 prize if they hadn’t redeemed one yet. Still, I’d suggest MadPea gift cards or credits instead of bonus points.

3. The Eggs/Hunt Items

The eggs were the same MadPea eggs used from 2017, yet they are still rather nice and pleasing to the eye to hunt for! Compared to the cute Christmas Toys of last year though, these eggs were a bit harder to find. There were no audible cues nor did these eggs move around once you got close. Super traditional hunt, yet I enjoyed the simplicity of it.

4. Hunting Gear

Not much this time around, but, again, happy for the simplicity this time around. For something so traditional as an Easter egg hunt, no need for fancy outfits, accessories or gear. Optional cute bunny hoppers are available for sale to make the hunt more fun.

5. Radar

I have the same issues with Easter Egg Hunt Radar as the Christmas Hunt Radar from my previous blog post:

  • Favorite Button – This seems to function only as a voting button to vote for your favorite sims, letting MadPea collect all hunter’s votes when the ‘favorite’ a sim. Then, top 10 sims selected by all hunters so far are placed here on their website. Last hunt, I thought it would also store locations of your (personal) favorite sims, eliminating the need to create Landmarks. Unfortunately, that function does not exist (yet!).
  • Hunt HUD Radar size – It seems minimizing the HUD’s real estate on the screen was not an intention. This thing takes up quite a bit of room when opened. The horizontal bar that stays at the top of the screen is clunky with no way to resize. I’d rather the section that displays the numbers be an expandable cartridge, similar to the existing window toggle for the prize display window. As a result, I just moved my Radar all the way to the right side of my screen to only display the Radar section, not even using the stats part of the HUD which eliminates 75% of the clunkiness and keeps my screen more visible.
  • HUD Indicators – The frequency of the HUD beeping has decreased (when getting closer to eggs) which I actually did not like because I rely heavily on sounds (as all gamers do to know when something is near). In addition, the HUD does not display the number of hunt items that can be found on the sim. Not really sure why that feature was taken away since it was actually kind of nice to know the quantity of hunt items there would be to quickly gage the amount of time you’d be spending in that particular sim to find all the eggs.

6. Nice Prizes!

As always, MadPea does not disappoint with the prizes! There were so many to choose from. This round seemed to be more focused on decor which would only be useful to those who own property, but there were a few things that weren’t just decor. My favorite item was actually the Game of the Goose boardgame. It is interactive and actually fun to play in a group of up to six people. If you haven’t already, check out my other post here to see what some of the MadPea Easter Egg Hunt prizes are. All prizes are also showcased on the MadPea Easter Egg Hunt Website as well as their Facebook page.

Hurry and keep hunting before the hunt ends on April 5th! Or if you haven’t started, what are you waiting for?! Go here to get started!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! If you aren’t hunting for eggs, then you are missing out! I’m sure there are many hunts happening around the grid right now, but for today’s post I am featuring MadPea’s annual Easter Egg Hunt and Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt. You won’t want to miss out on these fantastic Easter prizes so hurry and hunt for those eggs before they are all gone!

MadPea’s Easter Egg Hunt runs from March 22nd to April 5th, and the hunt is a dynamic experience where all egg hunters hunt at different sims on a daily basis. Eggs are constantly appearing and disappearing, giving hunters plenty of opportunity to rake in those points for prize redemption. Also, for a limited amount of time, golden eggs are being dropped from March 30th to April 2nd! These will drop surprise prizes and lots of points! Please note there is a $L100 fee to participate in this hunt. For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here. I’ll be covering the Easter Egg Hunt a lot more in detail in a later post. MadPea Easter Egg Hunt starting location: https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Neogene/133/182/150

The Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt runs from March 23rd to April 6th. This hunt is free to participate and all eggs are located on one single sim. To reduce lag, only 25 people are allowed on the sim at one time. There are a total of 70 eggs from a large selection of designers across the grid! Check out all the prizes here.
