A TOUCH OF COLOR – THE BEEHIVE HUNT 2020 (September)
How is this hunt going to work?
The hunt hints are going to be organized in a way that has the SIM/STORE WIDE HINTS first on the list.
The Grid Wide HINTS will be listed after that. This is not to make the grid-wide ones less important, but people going in #’s first will have to go by what comes first on the list.
WHAT PRIM ARE WE USING FOR THE HUNT?
It’s the Beehive! we’re using the same bee we had back in April 😛
HOW TO APPLY FOR THE HUNT:
Use the google form here: Hunt Sign Up Form (Grid Wide Stores/Business Only)
If you’re in our event, don’t use the form at all – we’ll provide you with information on how to get involved during the time you’re with us.
GRID / SIM / MIX?
GRID WIDE – You are not required to be a part of the beehive event or any of the related stores/businesses on our land.
STORE/EVENT WIDE: We don’t own a full sim, but we’re sure as hell going to make the most of it. If you’re involved with the BEEHIVE event, feel free to get involved and have a go at the hunt. Your items don’t have to be hidden in any specific matter, we’ll have specific items in certain areas from different people – so just hide yours around your stall.
Summer’s leaving, it’s running away from us. Autumn’s starting to creep behind like that weird sibling you forgot you had. Are you crazy enough to try and drink that pumpkin spice latte that everyone hates? Or is it just peer pressure to hate the sugar overloaded drink that’s overpriced?
We live in a virtual world, so we don’t have to deal with seasonal hay-fever – so let’s get into it! What can you make or design that is AUTUMN THEMED.
Autumn? Cotton candy’s for summer, but you can start to see the fun-sized chocolate bars, the candy corn, and the spider webs lining the store shelves… Ok I lie, I saw a Christmas tree the other day and just about screamed. Autumn is the preparation for the coming seasonal holidays, the thanksgiving (Canadian and American), the Indigenous People’s day (Screw that Explorer, we’re recognizing the first nations from now on!), and well ok HALLOWEEN.
The ONLY REQUIREMENTS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Grid Wide: Hunt/Event Prim at your store, plus landmark to the event/hunt in your hunt prim. A copy of your logo and store for our website. (And your hints must be submitted as well, we can’t do hints for grid hunts – you submit your hints to us!)
Sim Wide: Same as above, but you must be a VENDOR IN THE EVENT FOR SEPTEMBER ROUND OF BEEHIVE EVENT.
Price: We’d like to see you do 0-2L for a free/dollarbie level, and you are welcome to add extra gifts up to 50-100L with separate hints into the mix.
What we don’t want to see: Extremely copyrighted items, pornography, illegal items.
What we can see in this hunt: Grid wide stores are welcome to do what they’d like how they’d like as long as it means terms and conditions of their own meshes, stores – and Second Life. Sim-wide stores have to prepare their items according to the terms of the Beehive Event and Moderately rated land.
You will receive a FULL PERM BEE PRIM – but you must note the terms of service with this bee prim: It WILL HAUNT YOU IN YOUR SLEEP AND BUZZ YOU IN YOUR INTESTINES if you steal it. Beehead Studios has graciously mesh sculpted this prim with love and care and wants you to enjoy it, not steal it.
Plus if we find you re-selling your bee prim anywhere you’ll be reported and banned from ever doing the hunt again. This is exactly because this bee prim is original mesh, and it’s copyrighted to Beehead Studios. You may use it as a decoration, or save it for future hunts. Just don’t re-sell it.
Nothing copyrighted. (inspired by/fan works is a different story, but you must run the items by us beforehand)
Items must be either FREE or up to 2L. Gifts can be separate at maximum of 50-100L (and included as hunt hints as well as the original freebies.)
(if you do not make your own mesh, check the ToS of your full permission items.)
NO RECOLORS – You must literally make your own textures for your items, I cannot stress this enough for the hunt. Buying your own textures for a mesh FP item is one thing, but we want this hunt to inspire people.
You DO NOT NEED TO MAKE YOUR OWN MESH.
* Promotion of the event in terms of your specific engagement is to be promoted through your social channels. With how large we’re planning this we can’t advertise every single individual
Oh and NO DRAMA (if you can help it) – we’re all human, we all have our freak out moments.
If your event prim gets ripped up and returned PLEASE ASK – SL has been a nightmare and my mouse hates me…
Nobody hates you 😛 We try not to do mistakes 🙂
