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 Missouri Mystery Motel

Missouri Mystery Motel, a new mini mystery game made by MadPea, is out at 6º Republic and you’ll want to play this one! Note that the rare Motel is required to start the game. So Livvy and I drive up to the front desk in our groovy camping van that we’ve been sleeping in for days on the road. We finally found this motel in the middle of nowhere – thank goodness! I hadn’t showered in days and I was in need of freshening up. We rolled up in the thick of night and were rudely welcomed with absolutely no service. Livvy was a butt and continued to ring the desk bell. After a long day of driving, her incessant dinging of the bell was the last I needed! We’ve been taking photos throughout our road trip so I pulled her away from that stupid bell and took a selfie with her with our state of the art Polaroid camera. What we thought was a fortunate find of a place to sleep quickly turned into our greatest nightmare. Please send help*!!!

MadPea Missouri Mystery Motel | Mine & Yours

MadPea’s Missouri Mystery Motel gacha set is at 6º Republic. It’s a mini mystery game with an achievement and extra prize. There are 25 Commons and 2 Rare items in this set. While most items are static decor, a few items are absolutely necessary for the game to function. Once you have collected all items in the set, rez out the Rare Motel as well as everything else. Cam into the Motel and click the light switch located in the office and select “Game On.” This will automatically move all game pieces into the Motel! How easy and convenient is that?! I love that feature.

naked WITH A chair

naked WITH A chair is a creative installment headed by fellow artistic resident Mind Carlberg. What once started as a self project eventually widened to include any and all who wished to participate. The vision? Simple – the naked body and a single chair. So many interpretations. So many perspectives. What a wonderful idea to celebrate the diverse Second Life community.

This project came to my attention when my good friend Tory posted his own interpretation on his Flickr feed. Intrigued, I looked into the creative project a bit more. Further challenged by Tory, I decided to participate. And what a fun little project to be part of, resulting in my own piece to contribute to the ever growing gallery.

AM to PM

Usually I make my own poses because it is easier to create the pose to my vision instead of trying to find the one that goes with my photos I take. However, I’ve become a fan of the very natural male Bento poses from WRONG. A particular release from WRONG poses at PreCAST Inc. Event that is specifically catered towards suit attire caught my intrigue and immediately inspired this post. With my love for Deadwool suits, this marriage with the formal attire pose pack seemed like a match made in heaven. So came this concept of AM to PM, showing how truly timeless the classy look of Deadwool suits is, of which WRONG poses perfectly complements.

How Far I’ll Go

A very simple post today, but something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. There’s something so powerful about the ocean that draws me. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore stirs comfort in my soul. If feels like it was home in a past life with how familiar and safe it feels. The smell of fresh, salty air. The water so inviting, I gladly cross that line that divides land and sea, leaving the ground behind me and venturing into another world I can float and swim through.

Embrace Tranquility

Bonus points for those who know where the post title is inspired from 😛 DYNASTY has out a great traditional Chinese furniture set called Tranquility at The Epiphany this round. There are 10 total items to win (9 Commons and 1 Rare). There’s also an exclusive prize for those wanting a stone stool instead of the jade version. I couldn’t help but bring in parts of my childhood into this set as well. This set up is partly inspired by my mother. She absolutely loves plants and would have them grouped all over the house, especially near the entry way. For her, flowers and plants bring her tranquility and inner peace – a beautiful outlet from all the chaos that surrounds us all.

Ocean Bath

Fapple’s Murderous Mermaid gacha set at PocketGacha contains a total of 29 items – 25 Commons and 4 Rares. This is a very comprehensive nautical themed bathroom set. There’s so many items, and not all of them are even pictured below so I definitely recommend you check out the full set in world. There is a demo at the Fapple store so you can look at everything or try it out for yourself.

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_04 | Mine & Yours

There are a few things I would like to highlight about this set:

-Fapple- MM Gacha- BDSM Ceiling Rack RARE
This is such a unique addition to the set and perfect to situate above the bathtub. Why? Well, there are some interesting breathplay poses subs can use when the bathtub is full of water such has hanging them upsetdown with their head submerged under water.

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Bath Tub RARE
A beautiful tub with functioning tap to run water and foam for glorious bubble baths. Who doesn’t like bubble baths?! There are also neat effects besides the bubbles, but also the splashing of water

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_01 | Mine & Yours

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Aquarium Sink RARE
My favorite piece! This sink is amazing. I love how it is an aquarium and can rez animated fishes when you touch the glass to add a bit of life and realism to the nautical themed bathroom. The cute little fish swim freely in the sink tank!

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_03 | Mine & Yours

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Shower BDSM RARE
The water effects of the shower is really nice. You have to check out this in world to see that the particles of water splash upon impact, making the showering experience so much more realistic.

-Fapple- MM Gacha- Dive Helmet
I just love this thing. It looks so realistic. Even though this item is common, it is my second most favorite item in this entire set. It sits like a trophy and even though I didn’t win anything, this dive helmet is more a prize for me than any trophy can be.

Fapple Murderous Mermaid_02 | Mine & Yours

This set can be won by playing the gacha, or if you are like me and just want to have the full pack, Fapple is also selling the entire set for $L4990. THAT IS A STEAL! Seriously! GET THIS AT POCKETGACHA! This is such an amazing set and with the full pack, you have copy permissions which means you can feel free to mod your items to a certain degree like I did with the Dive Helmet. I modded it from a display item to a worn helmet, and I love it!

A Tale of Two Sisters

April’s round of Epiphany opens on the 15th at 10PM SLT and MadPea has released a very special and exclusive treat for you all. The gacha set, “A Tale of Two Sisters,” has a little game to the story of Soleil and Luna, and if you are able to figure out what the spiritual and intergalactic mystery is, you’ll receive a bonus prize and achievement.

A little addition to Epiphany: We all know that you can use points to redeem exclusive prizes, but Epiphany has added a VIP prize option too for those who spend $L1000 on a machine. MadPea’s A Take of Two Sister’s VIP prize is the Dark version of the Floral Spirit Board. The exclusive prize is the Moon Catcher.

The MadPea A Tale of Two Sisters set includes 27 Commons, 3 Rares, 1 VIP, and 1 Exclusive item, as well as bonus game prize if the mystery is solved. The gacha set features an original mystery story with an achievement and special bonus prize. This set is impressive and comprehensive as there are not only decor items, but interactive ones as well. I did not showcase every single item in the set, but some interactive pieces are:

– The Floral Spirit Boards which are fully functioning talking boards
– Luna’s and Soleil’s Bed which comes in adult and pg versions
– Wardrobe which comes in adult and pg versions
– Ornate Chest (click to open/close, holds a mystery)
– Storybook which gives the story of the Two Sisters
– The Sisters’ Cottage (72li – click to door to open, click fire to light/extinguish, sit on ladder to climb upstairs)

To work the Floral Spirit Board, ask a question by typing it in local, starting with /99 to channel your question to the Spirit Board. The player must be near the board or the spirit will not hear the question. Once the question is asked, the player(s) must keep touching (hold left click) the board for the planchette to finish spelling out its response. Once the question has been answered, another question may be asked in the same /99 channel. The board will reset after one minute if no new questions are asked or all players stop touching the board.

Down on the West Coast

From my last post, you all got a little glimpse of my love with the ocean as I scuba dive in RL. I have some exciting news for you aquatic souls out there – Alan Brady (Brady McKeenan) of flow is back! Yes, he is back!! flow specializes in surfing fashion and gear so to all you surfers, beach lovers, ocean divers – you are going to want to check this store out.

flow was one of my favorite stores back in the day. In fact, flow’s Surf N Shorts were my favs, and I would wear those all the time pre-mesh body era (Livvy can vouch for this because I always wore the same shorts lol). I have items from this store all the way back in 2013! Now, flow has returned with some awesome mesh beach gear, right in time for the quickly approaching summer season.

This post is only an intro/teaser post, to be honest. I have more posts planned to feature flow’s products a lot more in detail, but I wanted to put the word out there for those who used to follow or knew about flow. The new products are now completely mesh, compatible for Belleza, Signature, and Slink bodies.

Flow is back! | Mine & Yours

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.

MadPea Easter | Mine & Yours

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!
