Choose Your Own Name Tag Color

nametag

Every avatar born in There has a Name Tag. Name Tag colors are randomly assigned as Member Accounts are created. There are a total of sixteen colors. Twice a year There Games are held in our 3-D Virtual World where Thereians join their Name Tag color team to participate in competitive events.

Each year during the Games, there is a Name Tag blackout period where Thereians cannot change their Name Tag color. This happens two weeks prior to the start of the Games and lasts till two weeks after the end of the Games. For the upcoming 2016 Summer There Games, the blackout dates will be August 5th through September 11th.

The majority of Thereians choose to participate in the Games with the Name Tag color they were born with, but some members want to be on the same Name Tag color team as their friends. There allows members to choose their own Name Tag colors for a fee of 36,000T. If you’d like to change your Name Tag color for the Games, you’ll need to make sure to do it before August 5th.

Keep in mind that your previous Name Tag color team may be sad to see you go. You’ll also need to buy a new There Games team uniform, accessories and props to match your new Name Tag color since the current There Games merchandise you have in your inventory will not change colors. Please make sure you’ve chosen the right Name Tag color as there are no refunds for switching over to a new color if you accidentally pick the wrong one.

 

Summer Spot: Underwater Environment

The Sunshine and Tan Lines event kicks off next week in the 3-D virtual world There promoting fun summer activities to do with friends online while beating the heat in real life. This week we plan on highlighting unique Summer Spots you can visit in There. We’re on the hunt for the best virtual pools, hot tubs, swimming holes and beaches that inspire that carefree summertime feeling when hanging out with friends.

While exploring the waterways of the Fantasy Island Neighborhood, we stumbled upon a beautiful waterfall spanning the length of the water channel. Upon closer inspection, we discovered the entrance to an underwater cave on top of the falls and couldn’t resist taking the plunge into the underwater environment.

If you have never had the opportunity to swim in the ocean in There, this is your chance to experience  a unique and serene underwater world. As you walk down through the entrance to the cave and submerge your avatar underwater, the tranquility and beauty of the sea life below inspires a sense of calm and relaxation.

fish

A blanket of colorful shells and bottom dwelling sea creatures span the sandy floor of the cavern. Large schools of fish dart back and forth around your head with a nervous energy.  Up close the water is a calm and tranquil shade of blue, but off in the distance it grows dark and murky. You can make out large shadows slowly gliding through the water. The curious movements draw you to the back of the cavern. A shipwreck from long ago dots the underwater landscape. The amount of bountiful booty strewn about in broken chests is a treasure hunter’s dream.

The calming effects of the underwater environment give off a sense of safety as you explore deeper towards the back of the cavern. Camouflaged in the drifting beds of kelp, giant avie-eating sharks lurk waiting for the next unsuspecting swimmer.

Luckily we don’t have Health in There, because otherwise it would be GAME OVER for any Avie brave enough to swim through these shark infested waters without a safety cage.

In addition to great white sharks and schools of fish, there are several mystical creatures who inhabit the underwater environment as well. We encountered beautiful mermaids, a shy water dragon and a very friendly octopus in our exploration under the sea.

Take the plunge and explore the amazing and unique Underwater Environment created by Lynn_2. We highly recommend visiting this one of a kind Summer Spot in There! If you are not a strong swimmer, we suggest using a flotation device and the buddy system to avoid being shark bait.

Neighborhood Zones are essentially reserved areas of empty land on one of There’s islands. While the terrain of each Zone may differ, they are all “blank slates” with no pre-placed objects inside the Zone. This allows you, as a Neighborhood owner, and your tenants to build and create whatever you wish in your own space. When a Neighborhood Zone has been purchased, you can fill it with objects like trees, houses, and other decorative items.

There are hundreds of items to choose from in Shop Central and Auctions to decorate your Neighborhood. The possibilities are endless for a number of themes. A great place to start is the “Home and Garden” section. Happy decorating!
