This guide is for creators to double-check the event timeline and what should be done when.
To confirm your position:
Once you have received an acceptance notice and sim assignment (telling you on which sim you are), please pay the treasury account avatar, FANTASYFAIRE RESIDENT, your minimum donation (you’re always welcomed to donate more!). The minimum donation is 2500L for themed stores, 8000L for featured stores, 33,000L for featured stores with event sponsoring, 30,000L for event sponsors without stores and 60,000L for sim sponsors.
You will be invited into the * * Fantasy Faire Backstage* * Group as a Creator. This is a new group, the old group has been closed.
April 18-19th: set-up for creators
April 20th: early access for bloggers
April 21st: Faire opens to the public
May 3rd: pack up for creators
Prims & Store Decoration:
A reminder about prim counts. Themed stores have 300 prims. Featured stores have 700 prims. Featured stores with an Event sponsorship have 1000 prims. Finally please limit your decorating to the interior of your store. The sim designers have worked very hard to create a sim you will be proud to be a part of, keeping your merchandise inside your stores is a way of saying “thank you” for their efforts.
To assist with a better shopping experience please try to keep your script loads down as per the guidelines detailed here. Nutshell: no temp rezzers or greeters. Group joiners are fine.
Bloggers have an early access to the sims on 20th. If you wish to send out review copies or are interested in contacting bloggers in any fashion, please read the Merchants Guide to Bloggers.
RFL Vendors & Kiosks:
RFL kiosks & vendors are used to collect donations for RFL. They are pre-scripted to route the money to the American Cancer Society’s avatar account.
Kiosks – will be set up on the Fantasy Faire sims however you are encouraged to also set them up in your stores. They collect donations for RFL.
RFL Vendors – Though we have traditionally required Creators include two new items for sale that benefits RFL 100%, most Faire Creators have always made an extra effort to include four or more. We applaud the dedication and creativity of all our Creators and especially those who go beyond what the Faire asks of them. If you would like to have third and fourth item for RFL, consider including best sellers from the past!
100% of the sale of these items will go to RFL & ACS so the more desirable your items are, the more we can sell to raise funds for RFL! These vendors can also be used in your own store up until the end of July (when the RFL season ends) and help raise money for this great cause!
Fantasy Faire Hunt Gift – Once again this year we are writing, scripting and building an immersive hunt experience for you to help explore the sims and become part of the story of the Fairelands. While this is not a requirement of participation, it is highly encouraged that you consider contributing to this event. We will be greatly appreciative of all donations. If you are wondering about the hunt theme, it is fantasy of course!
