For grids and region owners, the hunts are an opportunity to expose the wider hypergrid community to their destinations. Players who participated got a chance to compete for prizes — cash, virtual content, and virtual reality headsets.

    The OpenSim Treasure Hunt is ONLY as good as people make it. It would be sad to see it go due to lack of interest. The time and efford put into this hunt was crazy. I think people that own regions think they MUST hunt. That isn’t the case at all. You only have to drop a hunt item, put a hint so people can find it and place a gift in the hunt item (IF YOU WANT). That easy. I really do hope in Jaunary 2017 we see an increase in hunters and Grids (regions) get involved. When we see the interest in 1 project like this it makes us want to make more things for hypergaters. If we don’t then we just stay in our own little corner of the Virtul World Grids.
