Earning Lindens Part 2: Traffic Games

I’m back again with another hopefully helping hand. I’ve had the idea for this post for quite awhile, it just took me a bit to put it all together. For this series I’m going to be focusing what they call Traffic Games. Basically these style of games are used to get people to spend time on your land and shop to get more attention for said land/shop. Now you aren’t suppose to have people afk on your land just to give it more attention but these games are designed to keep you from going afk. There’s timers and prompts and other tools they use to keep you moving and interacting.

Before I dive right in with the first one I want to put in a disclaimer. None of these are a “Get rich quick” game. They take a bit of time but its better than nothing. If any of these options feel off to you, don’t do them, plain and simple. I am not the creator nor the manager of any of these. While there will be a couple more choices toward the end, I will only be highlighting the ones I’ve personally used successfully. All of these are free to try unless otherwise specified so be sure to pay attention to that. Now that we got that out of the way let’s begin.

Collecting Games

Gold Hunt

Gold Hunt Game

First up is Gold Hunt provided by goldtokens.net They have a few games available but the only ones I’ve ever tried were this and their fishing game Fish Hunt, which I will mention later. The object of Gold Hunt is to find the coins pictured above, click them, then wait out the timer for a prompt to pop up. Answer it correctly within a certain amount of time and the linden is yours. Each coin has a different amount of time before you can claim it, the higher the value the longer it takes of course. Make note that all but the gold coin are partial lindens so you need to collect 2 silver, 4 copper, 10 tin? to equal 1 linden and so on. You can get the hud either on the marketplace HERE or at the headquarters HERE. Both locations offer it for free. The headquarters is also where the atm is located for cashing out your points. You need to have a total of 1 linden minimum to cash out so any partial points will be left behind till you pick up more coins. Note you don’t actually need the hud for the coins, you can use the website above for locations.

Treasure Quest

Treasure Quest Game

Treasure Quest is a lot like Gold Hunt but then again the collecting games are usually the same basic game with different things to collect. In this one you can find the coins pictured above along with gems and mystery items. The prompt for this one asks you to type the answer so make sure to read it and answer it correctly or you’ll have to click the coin and wait again. I’m not really sure when this one showed up, I’ve only been using it for a couple months. The only way to get the free hud is to visit the headquarters HERE. The payout station also being located there. As with the gold hunt, you don’t need the hud for the coins as the website shows the location.

Gold Rush

Gold Rush Game

Last of the collecting games will be Gold Rush. I’ve used this one for quite awhile and I liked the fact that the 1 linden bars are an automatic payout. This one is a bit different because I could not find a website so to find the bar locations you need the hud available for free HERE. You can also cash out straight from the hud which makes it much easier and compact than having to visit a HQ every time to get your linden.

Lindo

Lindo Game

For this one I wanted to give it it’s own section to talk about it in full. It’s fairly new from what I know but it is one of my favorite ones to use. You can read up and find locations HERE and get the free hud HERE. Lindo is a flower growing game. The hud comes with one seed to grow but you will need to buy more seeds after that. I know doesn’t sound all that great but let me continue. This one only requires you to visit a location with the lindo terminal and water the flower by clicking on the watering can. No running around, no watching for timers, just click and sit.

You can see on the hud (expanded view by clicking the menu or stat buttons) you have your earned linden, experience level, seed count, thirst level, and progress bar. The Thirst level is the main thing you need to keep an eye on, once it reaches 100% the flower will stop growing and you will stop earning linden. Simply click on the watering can to reset the thirst to 0% and start earning again. Once a flower is fully grown you will get a prompt when you click on the watering can. Answer the prompt and a new seed will start growing (if you have another one already). If you don’t have any more seeds all you have to do is click the seed vendor, pick the seed you want, and right click the vendor and pay. The first price is for singles the others are for multiples I believe but don’t quote me on that. (I only buy one at a time). A normal seed costs 2L, a silver costs 4L, and a gold seed costs 6L. Each level provides a bit faster growth and gain with gold being the best. A normal seed in itself has given me around 10-12L before its fully grown so the seed is well paid for after it is bought. This is also an instant payout from the hud so no extra traveling is needed to get your linden. There are also events with this that add multipliers. So instead of the 1x you can have 2x-10x the progress. These events are run by the land/shop owners so if you attend any make sure to be nice. They don’t have to do these events afterall.

Vaults

vault game

I won’t really have much to say about vaults because I personally don’t like them. I wanted to mention them because they do payout but they can be a bit of a pain. You can get the hud for free HERE and try it for yourself. The hud only offers random locations and some may end up repeating but this is one that will make you do a lot of traveling to get anything done. The website to find all the locations is HERE and they also have a bird hunt. (tried it but it wasn’t my kinda of game) About the vaults: They are run on timers, some only have 5min while others can go much higher. They are like lucky chairs and boards in the aspect of you having to wait till your letter is showing above the vault to click it. They are instant payouts, 1x gives you 1L, 5x gives you 5L, etc. They have prompts and cooldown timers. If you miss the prompt you miss your opportunity completely and have to wait for your letter to show back up. All in all these are more fit for someone who doesn’t want to sit still.

Fishing Games

Fishing games can be pretty fun but repetitive at the same time. The main objective of the two I will mention are simple to teleport to an active buoy and either click on the buoy or the pole to get started (depends on the pole). After the pole’s startup is finished you click the pole and it casts out, showing a number above the poles tip. When that number counts all the way down it reels in and you get partial linden and exp. Both of these offer free poles BUT they also have other poles that give shorter cooldowns and more payout per cast. There are also worms that can be purchased to help speed the process and you can even grow your own as part of Farm Frenzy. Keep in mind those options are NOT free and only look into them if you decide the fishing is right for you. As with the lindo game the land owners will offer multiplier events to help you earn more as well.

Fish Hunt

Fish Hunt Game

Fish Hunt is run by the same people that run Gold Hunt and the payout atm is the same for both. You can get your free starter rod HERE or do a bit of searching yourself as they add all the basic colors for free rods. Remember to look before purchasing as not all the rods are free. You can also get a fish location hud HERE if you don’t feel like looking at the website for the locations. This is probably one of the first linden games I’ve played and while it feels slow it’s not that bad once you get used to how it works. Also the basic stuff is free so it’s only costing a bit of your time to earn something. Can’t really complain about that.

Magic Fishing

Magic Fishing Game

Magic Fishing and Fish Hunt could very well be brother games considering how similar they are. The only difference I have seen so far is that Fish Hunt offers more color options for a starting pole and has a TON of other pole selections. The free rod for this one is available HERE and the website for more information is HERE.

Bonuses

These are not going to be for everyone. Getting a hud for free off the market is one thing but using another site or having to pay to start playing is going to feel weird. I’m simply mentioning these because the one I’ve used for years with great success and the other I’ve seen a lot of people using.

PED

PED Site

Entropia Partners is scary for first time users. There’s quite a number of sites out there that offer you money in exchange for things. This one however is created for Eve Online players as well as secondlife members. It is your basic “do tasks, watch vids, get paid” site. You can try your hand at the micro tasks, some are just watching videos, others are surveys, etc. There’s also the option I tend to use the most which is stream their radio station. With it you can earn .25L every 12 – 18mins. Seems like a long time to earn but considering you can have it going in the background while you are doing other things, even sleeping, I find it a great option. If you’re not shy of the forums like I am you can post proof of payment when you get your first few linden and gain bonuses as well. Now another scary thing to mention. This one does need to know your in game name to pay you because it is sent to you while in game when you cash out. If this bothers some of you, like I said in my disclaimer, don’t do it. I’ve used this since 2013 and it’s worked for me so I wanted to pass it along that’s all. For those wanting to give it a try here is the WEBSITE.

7 Seas Fishing

7Seas Game

The last one I wanted to talk about is not free as you can see by the picture above but it can pay itself off in time. I don’t have much information on it as I haven’t tried it but I will eventually. Their website is HERE if you want to read for yourself and find locations. This one is different from the other fishing games listed above in more ways than one. For the first major difference you actually catch fish that you can sit on your shoulder as pets or put into aquariums and watch swim around. They are also sell-able although I haven’t seen too many people doing it. The second major difference is that the lands with this can offer custom prizes. The stores that have caught my attention is Sn@tch and Curious Kitties with their own custom outfits you can reel in or trade fish in for. Each reel does different things as well: Demo only offering 5 casts to test it out, Casual needing no bait ever but only catching certain fish, or the Pro which can do it all but requires bait.

Again I’ve only mentioned ones that I’ve used minus 7seas. There are plenty of options available like Linden Realms, Bloodlines, Bird Hunt, Crystal Hunt, etc. My best advice is just do some research and if you don’t like it move on to something else. I hope you found some useful information in this and I will be back again with something new once I have it all set up and ready to go.
