So I’ve taken the plunge into the whole Gatchapon craze in Second Life.
I’ve created bottle caps and a bottle opener with mesh using Blender.
People can collect and trade any of these and wear the bottle caps as a hat.
If you’re lucky enough to get a bottle opener, then you can use it to pop the caps off of people with a single click while facing them and there’s a light fizz sound.
The person whose cap was popped could then retrieve the cap by standing near it and crouching.
Initial sales are decent and I hope that they will get better when the GatchaPon Palace store in Yankari Island opens fully.
