RL Sponsors

Having seen the initial success of the Surfline SL collaboration and PADI’s amazing work in SL, we are evaluating a similar partnership with ocean focused Real Life (RL) sponsors, either surfing product, windsurfing product, scuba product, fishing product or general ocean activities product suppliers that would be interested in sponsoring Bishara Resorts, and in return having the dominant product placements within our island group.  Furthermore, the sponsor would be able to place virtual versions of their real life products in Bishara and Second Life in general for showcasing / marketing as well as general purpose testing.  We are casting our lines out wide to find people who could help with high level introductions to companies that may fit this profile, and who would enhance the overall resort environment, look and enjoyment.  If you have anyone who could help sponsor or you believe your own company would be interested, please drop a notecard to VW Sands or Dumisani Ah at your earliest convenience.


New in Bishara!

Several new features have been added to the resort, for your enjoyment and entertainment of course 🙂

1. New fishing game added – find a new and different fishing game by clicking on the fishing board just to the right of the ‘fishing tournament game’ in Munch Bay. Hehe, it does not pay out cash like the other, but it is very realistic and great fun!

2. New spa hot tub has been added to complete the Bishara Spa to a more finished service area.

3. New and fun DART board added to the TIKI bar on Bishara Beach. Its fantastic fun, costs only L$10 to play and has cash prizes too!

4. Weather system over Mandhari Island – we added this feature to test its affect on the sim’s performance and, thanks to Yuukie, the affect on the sailing scripts on the sims. If all goes well we will expand it across the sim’s open land areas to add to the environment effects that are meant to show off the sim as a volcanic sim.

5. Quicksand on Mandhari Island – I added the quicksand pit to the crater of Mandhari, where you see the volcanic activity still happening. It is really funny sinking down in the muck LOL

Bishara Fishing Hole

Well, in light of the VAT issues of the last two months I have been trying to find some distractions to my plight by developing ideas in-world that will convince me to stay and help me ultimately pay my tiers and future sims.
One of the new features we are adding is the fishing tournament that can be found at Munch Bay. Although it has been running for a few weeks now, Kaikou Splash and I have been discussing adding a feature that will allow Bishara fisherpeople (what do we call a fisherman that is female? A fisherwoman? Will fisherpeople or a fisherperson be non-offensive enough to use here? A whole blog of discussions can go into that one) to compete with one another here on the Bishara home pages to see who caught the month or year’s biggest fish at our fishing hole. Although the current daily prizes are relatively small, the monthly price will be L$250 and the yearly price will be L$5,000, making it worth your while to throw that line in asap and see what you can catch.
Anyone with more ideas about the fishing experience in Bishara’s islands, please IM me or drop me a notecard or simply comment here so that we can develop this new experience into a seriously fun adventure for all.
