The first resort

Welcome back, from our new gnome, Katie Hopkins!  I suppose I should have made a troll or witch gnome have that name.  Oh well.

Cid's LTW is being hampered a little by the weather but we're upping his gardening skill as fast as we can and he's made a decent dent into his 'bloom' tally.

We've been slowly upgrading our resort.  We realised that the resort reviews were clues to improve the place, so we added more sleeping accommodation, water features, pool bars and gym equipment.

Then, eventually, we discovered that there was only really one relevant type of table and you had to chose the food type on it and then, when you've got basically one of each food type, the moaning TripAdvisor types stop whining.

And so we achieved this.  I want the kids to do some IP themed LTWs so I hope this is going to make that easier, not harder, but you can never tell with this game.

Boolprop is learning to use fairy magic.  He's the most advanced in the family now although he can mainly do auras, repairs, bloom and... another thing I forget, so he still has a way to go, I think.

He is not having much luck with sharing sprites, so I think his skill challenges are going to be much more of a pain than I expected them to be.

  1. Yay, finally some success with the IP LTWs. Go Quorn!

    Regarding fairy magic, the fairy house (and train set) restore magic. So if the fairy puts an aura on themselves then sleeps in the house, they level fairy magic without using it. Neat little trick I learned with a recent fairy – she got to L8 just by doing that every night while she was a teen.

    LOL at the townies freezing indoors. Methinks IP is not set up for winter.

    Great to see the Dayes again!

  2. Pinterest is adorable, I’d like to put her in my pocket and steal her…and Calippo as well I think.

    I never did get a chance to properly fiddle with the IP or ITF stuff…is that miniature town like a fairy house? Interesting.

    Also, I want that painting.

    • Yeah, I love her too 🙂

      The little town thing is the fairy train set. It is too coooot.

  3. Yay! Fun to see an update! That Pinterest is pretty stinkin’ cute! I’ve never been successful playing on Isla Paridso… which is a bummer, because I want to play with mermaids and life guards.

    Looking forward to more!

    • I don’t know how mermaids work yet, one of the things the kids will try out. I don’t recommend lifeguards!

  4. Hey Rad! I was wondering if you knew what your specs where. If you dont know its not a big deal i was just wondering. Anyways I hope you have a good daye hehe. I will be spending my night catching up with the dayes. (Im kinda still on gen 1……)

    • Its no big deal I was just curious* sorry

      • Ohh, god. IDK to be honest. I do know my rubbish computer works better than my good one with better graphics and more memory though :S

      • Ok that’s fine. I personally don’t even know my specs so I wasn’t expecting you to have them in your head.
