EDIT: Please see the "Additional Note" below which clarifies some details about these default item submissions.
We are getting very excited as we near the second release of the Blue Mars Mobile app, and to make it even more successful, we have another proposition for your consideration...
In order to give first-time users (that register through the app) more options for clothing, we would like to add more default items to each new user's inventory, in addition to the current stock of hair, shirts, skirts, pants etc. And we would like to send an open invitation to all developers to provide some of these default items: Create a great-looking clothing item that we can distribute as part of our default inventory, and win 10,000BLU! Please see below for details.
All Blue Mars developers are welcome to submit items for consideration.
Here are the categories of items we're looking to add to the default inventory:
Pants & Skirts
Physique (face and body textures)
The deadline to submit items for consideration is Monday, February 28, 2011, 12 noon HST (2:00pm PST, 5:00pm EST, 10:00pm GMT)
Items selected will show up in both the Blue Mars Mobile app and the PC client, as part of the default inventory accessible to all new users/developers.
- The immediate incentive: We will pay 10,000 BLU (one-time payment, added to your Developer account) for every item we select to be added to the new user default inventory.
- Secondary benefits: We will add your brand (or company) name to every item that we add to the default inventory, so every new user will see where the item came from, giving your brand built-in exposure.
- Upload your item normally from the Developer MyPage, but in the "Description" field, enter this text: #default
- This will indicate to us that you want this item to be considered for the default item inventory.
- Avatar Reality will review the item, and if we decide to add your item to the default inventory, we will notify you and credit 10,000BLU to your Developer account.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: Please note that, by submitting your item for consideration to be included in the user default inventory, you are agreeing to the following:
- 1. You will receive a one-time payment of 10,000 BLU for each item that is chosen to be added to the default inventory. That item will then be distributed to all new and existing users as a default item, with no additional payments to you.
2. If your item is chosen to be added to the default inventory, please do NOT put the exact same item out for sale in the Blue Mars PC client or Blue Mars Mobile. Items that were not chosen to be added to the default inventory may still be sold in-world as regular items.
3. If your item is chosen to be added to the default inventory, Avatar Reality reserves the right to use images of the item as shown within the Blue Mars PC or mobile clients, or modify the item data as necessary, for promotional and marketing purposes.
If you have any questions, please reply to this thread. Thanks and we're looking forward to your entries!
