Bloodlines Event: Pub Crawl

July 31st, 2017 by Mars Bracken

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re excited to announce an official grid-wide Bloodlines Event – The Pub Crawl! It will start on August 1st and run until September 1st.

The Pub Crawl is an event for bars in Second Life. Anyone owning a Bloodlines Haunt can opt-in, and anyone with a HUD will be able to participate in the crawl.

What specifically does this mean for Bloodlines players? It means during that month we’ll be connecting participating Haunts up via the website and the HUDs, so that you can easily travel from bar to bar, and meet up for a drink with people while discovering new Bloodlines-friendly locations.

For Haunt owners, this event means a chance to get your bar or club on the map! The Crawl will provide an influx of new visitors, as well as give you a chance to network with other Bloodlines friendly locations. Players will be able to vote on their favorite Bars, and prizes will be awarded at the end. Mars and Lyle will be visiting participating locations to help with the final judging of the top Bars, and we hope to see you there! On the final day (Friday Sept 1st) we’ll be having an event on the Bloodlines sims, and we’ll give away the prizes.

Voting will start immediately and run the month. During that time, all you need to do to vote is press the ‘Vote’ link next to the Pub Crawl icon on the profile of participating haunts.

Prizes (Awarded at the end of the Month):

Pub Crawl Participation Rare – Given to anyone who opted-in their Bar to the event. (Limit one per avatar)

20 Runner-Up Rares (Silver Crown) – Given to the best 20 Bars

3 Top Bar Rares (Gold Crown) – Given to the top 3 Bars. These will also receive a banner on the Bloodlines homepage for a week following the event.

Getting involved is simple:

Location Owners – If you already have a Haunt, just log into your profile, Edit Haunts, and opt-in via the radio button for the Pub Crawl Event. Make sure to use the Haunt Events calendar to schedule specific times for your events.

Bloodlines players – On August 1st the Pub Crawl will automatically generate locations in your HUD, under the Haunt button. We’ll also make it clear on the website which locations are participating, so you should be able to easily find the next great location to visit!

At the end of the month on September 1st, we’ll wrap it up with an official party / awards ceremony on the Bloodlines sims where we’ll deliver all the prizes, so be sure to stop by. See you there!

Update to Rare Libraries

July 28th, 2017 by Mars Bracken

We made a few tweaks to the Rare Libraries today:

  • Owners are listed in order of who has the most of any given texture, and how many
  • A link to the Guide has been added to the Library page
  • A link to the personal Library page has been added to the Cellar page
  • We’re slowly adding a “More Info” link to all the Rares in the guide, so that you can track down when/where a texture came from in the blog posts.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback and suggestions!

3 New Gacha Sets

July 8th, 2017 by Mars Bracken

 

 

The 3 new sets of Gacha textures are in the machines as of today!

The machines are still rezzed in two places on our sims, so if one set is busy you can try another location:

Liquid East Gacha Machines

Liquid South Gacha Machines

These 3 machines will be out for one month (July 8th – August 8th) and then we’ll pull them back.

If you’d like to read our original Rare / Gacha release post with further details, it’s here.
