Dear Shell Hunter,
We warmly welcome you to the two week summertime madness of hidden shells, prizes, amazing locations, achievements, rewards and much more!
HOW TO GET STARTED
You will need a HUD to play. Teleport to the Mad City Beach Area and purchase the HUD for 100L.
You will also receive a Beach Bucket for your shells.
When you first wear your HUD you will be randomly assigned to a team. Finding shells will help your team earn points that unlock prizes.
Look at the Shell List on our website or click on the ? button on your HUD to see the locations where the shells are hidden. You can also use the website to see the Top 3 Hunters of the day and your ranking on the Summer Hunt leaderboard.
Please make sure to allow the locations to rez around you before you start searching. That’s to help you see things better so you can avoid from walking into walls or bumping into other hunters.
Use your radar to find the shells. The closer to the center the shell pointer is, the closer you are to a shell. There are also sounds that will guide you.
WHAT DO THE SHELLS LOOK LIKE
We have different kinds of shells around the grid that all react to the HUD you’re wearing.
SHELLEBRATIONS have glowing runes and give you 50 points each. They last 72 hours once they are first rezzed.
CRABTASTICS are colorful hermit crab shells that give you 25 points and last 48 hours after they are first rezzed.
CLAMTASTICS are the most common shells. They are worth 10 points each and their lifespan is 24 hours.
But wait! That’s not all! We also have some very special ultra RARE PEARLFECTIONS!
When you find one of these shells, instead of getting points, you will win an INSTANT PRIZE!
HOW TO REDEEM YOUR PRIZES
Teleport to the Mad City Beach Area by using the beach button on your HUD
Check your HUD for your Current Points available
Find the prize you want and make sure that your team has unlocked it for purchase. This information can easily be found at the top of the vendor board.
If your team’s color shows an unlocked symbol then just click the board to get your prize! If it shows a locked symbol then get back out there and hunt for more shells!
What are the collective points?
The MadPea Summer Hunt is broken up into three teams. Each team works together to raise their collective points total.
Why do I have three different point counters on my HUD? What does it mean?
Collective Points are points for the whole team’s effort. All the points that every hunter on your team has collected are added together to make this number.
Current Points shows the points that you have currently available to spend on prizes. It’s the Total Points you have earned minus points you have spent. Please note, there is no reason to keep saving your points. They can be only used for The MadPea Summer Hunt prizes and using them to grab prizes doesn’t lower your position on the leaderboard.
Total Points match your points on our Summer Hunt Leaderboard. They are all the points that you have earned during this hunt.
How can I win the 500L reward?
Keep on hunting! Every day the top hunter from each team will be rewarded with $500L in cash. This is sent directly to your avatar. The more points you earn during the 24 hour period, the higher chance you have to be on the top. These rewards will go on daily until the end of event on July 9th, 2017.
As extra inspiration to get out there and hunt hard, we’re awarding the all-time top 3 hunters on the leaderboard at the end of the hunt with big cash prizes!
$5000 to 1st place
$3000 to 2nd place
$2000 to 3rd place
(Please note that in the case of a tie, the $10 000L prize money will be split between winners.)
Can I see the prizes beforehand?
The first 5 prizes are available always at the Mad City Beach Area and they are also listed on this page as well as our Facebook page. As soon as one of the teams unlocks a prize, it’s poster will be revealed. Don’t forget, there will also be SURPRISE prizes in our PEARLFECTIONS!
Can I buy shells for my land?
Is there a chance I could buy these shells without the scripts?
Unfortunately we can’t do that. It increases the temptation to rez the shells as decoys and our customer service will be swamped with hunters asking about ‘why doesn’t this shell work?’ However, we just might have them available after the event is over!
HELP! I don’t have access / don’t want to go to a location that’s rated adult. How can I avoid them?
Each time you click on the HUD button to get a new location you will see the location rating and can choose which ones you want to visit.
HELP! I found a shell, but it’s not working. What do I do?
Before reporting a faulty shell, please check the following:
Make sure the shell belongs to the MadPea Summer Hunt (check the shell chart above).
Have you muted the shell owner? If so, the shell won’t react to you.
Are you close enough to the shell? You have to be within 5m distance from the shell to click on it.
Are scripts allowed on the parcel you’re on? If not, please contact our Customer Support and we’ll message the owner.
Is something in front of the shell? It’s possible that an invisible prim is covering the part you’re clicking on. Check that with ctrl+alt+T or right click to touch the shell.
How can I get achievements from this hunt?
All you have to do is to keep hunting! The more shells you find, the more achievements you will receive. There are 5 achievements in total in this hunt. Don’t forget, if you level up during this hunt, you’ll earn a new LEVEL PRIZE too!
To check which achievements you have, visit our Player Portal.
HELP! I can’t enter a location, what do I do?
MadPea is not responsible for the locations. Anyone can buy a shell and rez it on their land. If you can’t enter a region, you should contact the owner to solve the issue yourself, MadPea unfortunately can’t help you there. We suggest you click on the ? button to go to a different location.
Possible reasons for not being able to enter a region:
You are banned
The region you’re trying to enter requires payment information on file
The region might be offline
You don’t have moderate or adult regions enabled
Why do my shells disappear from my bucket?
The Beach Bucket is a fun visual and it can only carry so much! It’s scripted to reset after each teleport so you can watch it fill up over and over and over.
I teleported to a region that is supposed to have shells, but my radar isn’t showing them. What do I do?
First check if there are scripts allowed on the parcel you’re on. If not, please contact our Customer Support and we’ll message the owner.
The shell might have recently died too. Use the ? button for a new location.
My radar is showing shells on region, but I don’t see them
It could be that the shell has just expired! Click on your radar, it will refresh.
The radar will show a white dot if you are on the same level as the shell, a blue one if it is above you, and a red one if it is below you.
HELP! I have a question that’s not answered here!
First, try our MadPeas group chat in-world, you might get your answer fastest there or you can contact our Support.
MADPEA SUMMER HUNT RULES
The environments you are visiting do not belong to MadPea Productions. They belong to the respective vendors. Thus, do not grief their customers, visitors, members or residents. Do not break their posted rules.
GROUP TAG RECOMMENDED
When you are playing, we would really appreciate it if you wore the MadPea Group Tag.
Unless otherwise instructed to do so, do not rez or lay any objects from your inventory at any of the locations you will visit in the game.
We are aware that Second Life has its own issues that we can not control, such as location logouts, reboots, or lagging and crashing. Should anything happen beyond our control that disrupts or halts the hunt, we will announce it via group notice at the first possible opportunity, providing further instructions relevant to the issue.
REFRAIN FROM BAD SPORTSMANSHIP
Do not harass other hunters, do not instigate conflicts, and if you get stuck, do not whine and complain in group chat. Doing any of these actions will result in your revocation of your chat rights.
GROUP DIALOGUE IS ALLOWED (and even encouraged!)
You are allowed to communicate in group chat and help each other out. You are however NOT allowed to give out direct slurls to the shells.
The prizes will be locked until a team collective goal of shell points has been reached. You can see this number on your HUD. As soon as your team reaches a new level, a prize is unlocked and you can redeem it. If another team unlocks a prize level first, don’t worry! Your team can still collect shells and earn points to also unlock that prize.
The prize pictures appear here daily as teams unlock them. They are also added on our Facebook page.
