Hello peas! We are currently creating our biggest game ever called Virtual Medical Doctor. One of the greatest things about this game is that it will be played on many languages! We are still searching for people who can fluently translate English to  Spanish and French. Knowledge of medical vocabulary is recommended. If you have the skills, please IM me, Kiana Writer for further information.

NOTE >> FYI I have listed each county and the date they celebrate their Independence Day on the blog – they will play a role for you in this hunt – as the theme is global wide “Independence Days”  – also you do NOT have to create an object regarding your country indepedence day – you may select from ANY country you wish to represent – hopefully this will also create a larger global representation – enjoyment – following.

———————
HUNT INFO

Hunt is OPEN to all designers and hunters –  regardless sim location type your location will be coded regarding status.
Items MUST BE created by applicant, be representative of country you selected, and something besides a country flag please…… lol

————————————————
PARTICIPATION INFO

1.  A PICTURE of the item with the Country it represents and it’s Independence Day  needs to be sent in by May 31st – or you will be removed from the hunt  (if you need assistance with this please send notecard to the organizer with request for assistance and why you can not complete this request) 

2. . A NOTECARD with a summary regarding the countries fight for independence is to be included with your gift item along with the “inspiration” of your gift  (this can be simply information gathered from google or as indepth as you wish to explain – just remember the WHO-WHEN-WHY-WHERE in your summary)

4.  All Landmarks & SURLS to be keep current please as to not interrupt the flow of the hunt for the hunters or next store in line to be visited.

5.  Wish i didn’t have to add this bit BUT >>> The old saying “If you have nothing GOOD to say……say Nothing at all” DOES APPLY……. NO NEGATIVITY  or DRAMA will be tolerated in the group chat from anyone regarding locations, countries, gifts or difficulties encountered – please send notecard regarding your issue(s) to organizer.

6.  BLOGGERS  – We welcome your post regarding our hunt items or pictures and details about the country they represent in a “positive” manner if you wish. You are NOT authorized to post landmarks or SURL’s to the hunt items themselves OR declare what item is in what store. In addition, your post regarding the STATUS of the hunt regarding whether it is good or bad hunt is only ONE persons opinion and possible slander to another! It ruins the hunt for BOTH the hunters and the vendors when this type of drama is created.

AVATARS WITH REAL EYE MOVEMENTS CAN SPOT LIARS IN THE VIRTUAL WORLD

“Most virtual worlds, such as Second Life, are full of avatars with static or pre-programmed gazes. One way to make interactions feel more realistic is to reproduce a person’s eye movement on their avatar, said William Steptoe of University College London and colleagues.”

By reproducing these eye movements on avatars, using test subjects wearing eye movement tracking glasses, other viewers were able to determine 88% of the time whether the questions being answered were truthful. Interesting article and research.
