How You Can Win Up to US$5,000 in Sinespace’s Contests for Content Creators

This blogpost is sponsored by Sinespace, and was written in my new role as an embedded reporter for this virtual world (more details here).

Did you know that Sinespace has weekly contests for content creators? Each week’s winner receives US$500, and contests will run weekly through to February, and perhaps longer.

Last week’s contest winner, Punkerella and Booradley, came up with something I’ve never seen before, in any virtual world: colourful, interactive sea slugs!

In addition to the weekly contests, there are two major contests taking place over the next few months, with some seriously sweet prizes:

  • Out of This World: Create a unique, interactive and outlandish environment using the Sinespace SDK. The theme is “out of this world”, so create something unique, quirky and alien-like. The winner receives US$3,000 plus 1 year of Exclusive Creator membership. The runner up gets US$2,000 plus 1 year of Exclusive Creator membership. The contest deadline is Dec. 20th, 2019. (More details here.)
  • Carnival Games: Create a unique and engaging mini game using the Sinespace SDK and Lua (Sinespace’s scripting language). The game can be any carnival-themed game, from maze run, shoot the aliens, to anything you can imagine. The gameplay needs to have a way for players to score normal and bonus points, along with a leader board. The game can be single-player, PVP or PvE. The contest winner receives US$5,000 plus 1 year of Exclusive Creator membership. The runner-up gets $US2,000 plus 1 year of Exclusive Creator membership. The contest deadline is Feb. 10th, 2020. (More details here.)

You can get details on upcoming contests, plus see all the entries for past contests, on this page. To find out more about becoming a content creator in Sinespace, here is some information to help you get started.

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Apple Fall

I don’t usually blog about deals on items for your home and garden, but Apple Fall is having such an amazing sale that I am going to break that rule, just this once!

In a message sent out to the Apple Fall Facebook group, the store announced:

Apple Fall is having a Black Friday Sale! And guess what? Everything is L$50, or less! We are not kidding you.

The Sale has begun, and we hope you are ready to grab everything Apple Fall related, and stuff those inventories to the max.

The sim will only have 12 residents at a time due to technical difficulties, we won’t close the sale anytime soon as we don’t want any of you to miss out.

Apple Fall offers the highest-quality home and garden furnishings, buildings, and skyboxes. And yes, EVERYTHING in the store, from tiny teapots to huge houses, is L$50 (or less) each! This is such a great deal that it was worth fighting to get into the sim (as you can expect, it’s jam-packed). It looks as though the sale will continue for a while, but I would still advise you to get down to Apple Fall as soon as you can, since I don’t know when this sale will end.

So even though I have no land to place it on, I decided to buy the Harwick Manor house for only L$50 (hey, it was on sale!):

I also picked up some lovely furniture from the new Fulwood Collection for my Linden Home in Bellisseria:

There’s also a corner in the store with numerous freebies, including a wingback chair in three colours. Also, there are a few nice freebies on the chest table in the Fulwood Collection display in-store. So hurry down!
