Congratulations to one of the oldest running clubs in There, Bay Area Boat System (BABS) celebrates its 11th anniversary in our virtual world! To honor this celebration, the BABS group is holding a special activity from October 1st through the 15th.
The BABS group supports a network of large landing towers and outposts throughout There. The towers allow big groups of guided hoverboat tours to easily island hop from one location to the next. BABS throws regular events and everyone is invited. You can pilot your own hoverboat or relax and enjoy the scenic view from the passenger seat.
The BABS group was founded on September 23, 2004 by Thereian LossAngeles. It holds over 500 members and hosts regular events in There. The BABS group is so extensive, it has three sub-groups consisting of the BABS Flight Captains, BABS Host Captains and the BABS Outpcost Community.
In honor of their 11th anniversary, BABS is hosting a special activity during the month of October. It’s called the Celebration in Pictures and encourages Thereians to attend events, tours and to get out and meet new people. The idea is to take pictures with any BABS Flight Captiain, Host Captain, Outpost owner or capture photos of any BABS outpost tower, BABS event or tour to qualify for entry into a random chance selected reward. Prizes will be awarded at the Celebration in Pictures wrap-up party event to be held Wednesday, October 16th at 7:00 PM Eastern/10:00 PM Pacific at the BABS Club House.
To participate in the Celebration in Pictures BABS activity, you’ll need to do the following:
1. Capture a photo of a BABS flight captain, host captain, outpost tower owner, outpost tower, event or tour, you with your favorite hoverboat, your name on a boat track at Skidmark Speedway, you racing your hoverboat at Skidmark Speedway, the BABS Club House or an unfortunate boating accident.
2. Submit your avatar name and photo(s) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Attend the wrap-up party and see if you’ve won a prize!
How do I find these places, people and events to capture a photo with?

Samsyn has been hard at work creating and playing with Bricks! This upcoming new feature to There is a game piece that can be dropped into a Real Estate Zone. Each piece has 100 Brick objects to play with. Not only can you move them all around the Zone, but their shape and material can also be manipulated. Think of the Bricks like elevators for Avatars and vehicles.
We’d like to invite you over to our testing playground at Pumpkin_Jack’s Neighborhood to come and play with the new Bricks and offer us your thoughts and feedback. Let us know what you think and shoot us an email at email@example.com.
Here’s some light reading material on how to interact with the Bricks. If you get stuck or have any questions, please let us know. Don’t forget to click “Stop Bricklaying” when you are done testing out the Bricks. Happy building!
Here are a couple of fun videos showing Thereians playing around with the new Bricks.
Bricks are only recently available for testing to Thereians. Their functionality will continue to evolve and change as we make updates from your suggestions. We’re looking forward to sharing the final product with you in the future!
