Annual Club Fair in There

Join a club online and make new friends in the virtual world There.com. Visit the annual Club Fair from Sunday, January 8th to Saturday, January 14th to browse teams, leagues, Neighborhood groups and social clubs looking for new recruits. Check out the different clubs on display at the annual community-wide event and sign up for club events.

To join a club in the virtual world There, first create your very own avatar here. Once you’re logged onto There, teleport over to the Club Fair at the There Fairgrounds. Travel the walkways around the Fairgrounds and visit the different types of clubs There has to offer. You’ll find signs, brochures and information on each club. Check the individual booths for upcoming Club Fair events where you can meet and interact with other club members.

If you are the leader of a club in There and would like to participate in the Club Fair, join the There Fairgrounds Development Group. Once you are part of the club, find an open Lot at the Fairgrounds to rent out. Here’s a list of the remaining available Lots. Make sure to name your Lot after your Club and schedule events for your Club inside of the Lot during the week of the fair. Use the keyword Club Fair in your event description to have your event featured on the home page.

At the end of the Club Fair, you can send an email request to There Staff to have your Lot evicted from the Fairgrounds. An Eviction will result in a pro-rated rental refund going back to your account. Please be aware if you Relinquish your own Lot, you will not receive a partial refund and the full month of rent will be taken from your account. Make sure to include your Avatar name and the doid to your Lot in your email to Staff if you’d like to be Evicted for a partial pro-rated refund.

Enjoy the Club Fair from January 8th to the 14th! Challenge yourself to sign up for at least five new to you clubs.

Home for the Holidays

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s so delightful! Cozy up next to the fire in your very own winter cabin on Frosty Island. Enjoy snow-covered terrain and the beautiful pink, purple and orange skies of this delightful island in There shaped like a snowman. Make yourself at home in a two-story winter cabin located in Santa’s Village. This lovely home offers a dining room, living room, family room and upstairs loft. Complete with outdoor lights and frozen icicles.

The snow-covered cabin is included free with the monthly rental of a one-acre Development Lot. Join the Santa’s Village Development Group first before picking out your new homestead. View the winter cabin listings to find the perfect spot. To rent a holiday cabin for the winter, step into the Lot and go to This Place on your menu bar and clicking information about For Rent. Here is a helpful article about setting up your Development Lot in the Santa’s Village Development Zone.

All tenants who rent a winter cabin in Santa’s Village between now and December 20th will be entered into a random drawing for two months of free rent. The drawing will be held on December 21st. Tenants do not need to be present to win. The winner will be notified by ThereMail so make sure your registered email address is up to date.

You can purchase furniture, artwork and a Christmas tree from Shop Central or the Auctions to decorate your cabin for the holidays. Our Designers have created many different styles of holiday home decor for you to choose from. Once you’ve got your home decorated to your liking, you can create an event and invite your friends and new neighbors to a housewarming party.

2018-11-29 (1)If you’d like to build your own home from scratch, you can purchase a PAZ from Shop Central and drop it anywhere around Santa’s Village on the Island of Frosty. Pick and choose what kind of furniture and decorations you would like to have in your home.

There are also two Neighborhoods located on Frosty that are welcoming new tenants. Make yourself at home at Candy Cane Lane or Winter Wonderland.

Avie Sacrifice

On the eve of every new client release in There.com, it is tradition for the Thereian Community to scale Wilson’s Peak, the tallest mountain in the Virtual World to offer up their Avatars to the There Gods in hopes for a smooth update. Join us tonight at 7:00 pm PDT/10:00 pm EST for Avie Sacrifice!

Gather on the deck with new and old friends starting at 7:00 PDT. The deck will be removed fifteen minutes after the start of the event and the party will free fall down the mountain together. Make sure to bookmark a spot at the top of Wilson’s Peak so that you can teleport back up after sliding down the mountain. There will be a second deck drop at 7:30 in case you missed the first one. If you are unable to join us for the event, you can still make an avie sacrifice on your own time and shoot yourself off the side of the mountain with one of the Avatar Slingers or hop a hoverboard and shoot through the Avie Slingshot.

The new client release is scheduled for Wednesday, September 28th.

What is an Avie Sacrifice you ask? Check out this video footage Chagall filmed in There.com of a past Avie Sacrifice from 2006.

New Client Release 9.28.22

A new client will be released for the Virtual World There.com on September 28th, 2022. It removes the game’s dependency on Adobe Flash and uses Microsoft Edge as its internal browser. Members will be prompted to install this version on Wednesday or the next time they log into the There.com 3D client.

Install the 3D Client Download (New version available 9.28.22)

Members can expect to download the full installer which will take up to five minutes to run due to the installation of additional dependencies. Once you’re running the new client, any future updates will be automatically patched in a smaller download.

The new client software will no longer be dependent on Adobe Flash. For security purposes, after the client upgrade, please remove Adobe Flash from your machine by using the Flash Uninstaller which you can get here.

The new client uses open-source products from a number of sources, including, but not limited to There Edge, Ruffle and jQuery. The new client software automatically includes these open-source links so the user does not need to install these packages themselves.
