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!

October 19th – Portal to Willowshire opens to general public. Bad Omens quest available for prize and achievement.

October 20th – MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt begins. Runs through to November 3rd.

Fall (TBD) – Spellbound experience finally opens!

MadPea Spellbound Coming Soon | Mine & Yours

A bit of a teaser of what sort of magical experience you’ll expect from the weeks leading up to Spellbound’s full release. Ready your wands and wardrobe, you will undoubtedly be in for an enchanting adventure.

Some theories about Spellbound? Why not! I love trying to guess what MadPea has planned for us. Earlier this month, MadPea teased the Spellbound crest on their Flickr. It seems like players will be sorted into four different houses: Venti, Terra, Aqua or Ignis. Each of these are symbols for different elements: Air, Earth, Water, and Fire. On the crest are the words “magicae et sapientia”, meaning magic and wisdom. Surely it will require smarts to get through the challenges in the game, but is there something more to this motto?

And then! Earlier than that tease was another teaser, but in video form on MadPea’s Facebook page. We got to see what seems like a dining hall(?) with a big massive bonfire(?) in the middle of this castle-like building. That firepit will definitely be something important since it is centered and quite massive. It definitely won’t be used as a human sacrifice pit (or will it?!), so maybe it is House Ignis’ specific dining hall since all the flag banners hanging on the wall were red and the room seemed to be engulfed in fire.

I am a huge Harry Potter fan so I am super excited about this upcoming magic-inspired game. I can’t wait! I hope I am sorted into Aqua 😀

Caleb’s Puppy Care

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.

Danse Macabre

As someone with classical training, I can definitely appreciate the thought and thoroughness Eku Zhong has put into her newest creation – Culprit Sonata Macabre Bento Upright Piano (FYI there is a traditional Upright Piano as well but I find this dark rendition to be quite fitting for the upcoming month of Halloween).

Culpit’s Macabre Upright Piano is for Bento hands so avatars must have compatible hands to see the great finger animations while playing the piano. The piano is quite customizable, offering four different texture choices: White, Blue, Red, and Black, as well as option to mix and match the colors to different parts of the piano for a more unique look.

There are 48 classical public domain songs to choose from, each song featuring the appropriate playing style animation. There is also an option to just play the 12 different animations without the sounds as well in the Muted menu. This way you can still use the piano for the animation while playing to your own stream or music (great for performers).

And as you can tell, we are playing the beautifully wicked tune by the legendary Romantic Camille Saint-Saëns – Danse Macabre. Care to join us for some fun?

Best Mates Squad

For the past few seasons, my squad and I have been playing Fortnite (instead of League) so when MadPea made these awesome golf carts, I immediately knew I had to do a pic with my best mates. The new season of Fortnite introduced all new ATKs that we absolutely love and usually my cuzzy is our designated driver. So in this picture, you’ll see me sporting the Bandolier look, my cuzzy wearing the Redline look, and Jin is rocking the spot-on Reaper aka John Wick look.

Getting this scene set up was a bit more difficult than I had thought! I knew I wanted the party bus in back as well as a glider for someone to fly in the scene on. However, I couldn’t find anything in world that were close to what you would find in Fortnight, so I started piecing things together from other items, making a make-shift laser-shark glider and a rudimentary party bus. However, the golf cart from MadPea was perfect as is!

These MadPea Krazy Karts are fully functioning vehicles, seating up to three avatars with different sit animations. The car can be set to everyone, group only, or owner only. You can find these golf carts at The Gacha Garden where there is a total of 9 Commons, 1 Rare, and 1 Seed of Inspiration item to win from this set.

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.
