Break the Rules

If you like gachas, but hate the dreaded lag, endless full sims, or duplicate commons that come from such machines, then you should probably check out the new PocketGacha event. I picked up these new sneakers from Vale Koer, one of the sponsors of this new event and I confess, it is the most painless gacha experience I have ever had.

If you’re just now hearing about it, PocketGacha is a monthly gacha event that is completely HUD based. This means no more fighting lag or waiting for the usual sim campers to get their shit and get out. You can shop pretty much anywhere.

Here’s how it works:

  • Grab your PocketGacha HUD. You can do this on the SL Marketplace, at the PocketGacha Headquarters or via the inworld group. If you join the group, you’ll automatically receive the HUD on the 15th of each month.
  • You can choose to play the gachas via your HUD with either Lindens or Tokens. For those of you that are unsure about giving access to your Lindens to the HUD itself, you can purchase tokens from the PocketGacha HQ at a non-refundable 1:1 transfer rate. The tokens will then be added to your HUD for easy play. Oh, and don’t worry, they rollover!
  • Finally, you can flip through the HUD catalog and pay to play each gacha, or if you prefer, you can buy the entire set outright. I definitely love this idea for the savings alone!

The HUD is super easy to use, and as you can see offers a way to search, sort and manage your favorite gachas for each round. It also offers help, landmarks and useful information about this newest event.

So, what do you think about the new concept of PocketGacha?

Lookbook #5

Is it me, or has anyone noticed how difficult it’s been to get into events lately? faMESHed, Collabor88, Uber… I’m seeing a theme. While I am glad to see some of my favorite events garnering more traffic, I still find myself resisting the urge to pull a Walmart SL version of Jeff Dunham. Just saying.

On the flip side, this month marks the first anniversary of Shiny Shabby! It’s amazing how fast time has gone by. I was able to pick up some really great finds when I did manage to get in, though I’m sure I’ll be heading back for more soon. But even if nothing at the event catches your eye, be sure to stop on by anyway. Most of the creators have put out some fabulous free anniversary gifts for the occasion, including this coffee tumbler from Vale Koer. What fashionista could possibly go without her morning cuppa?

Also happening, is an extended version of Exposeur’s sale. The wonderful RubyStarlight Writer explains about her situation here and why she has extended her sale, and as an owner of two cats myself, I can only imagine what she must be going through. So, if you are looking for some really great poses and props for a good price, please stop on by the Exposeur mainstore and show your support Ruby and her babies. <3
