More thoughts and tips from Florapolis

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

1) When you reach level 12 with full hunter set and tricksters glasses, all the mobs in florapolis only hit you for 1 point! That probably comes when you’re nearly done with all florapolis quests.

But I recommend leaving the policeman quests to the last because that involves whacking mobs, which is when you need the highest level to get it done easily and quickly.

2)  Collect oranges from sanrio harbour while you’re getting the slime from starfish. It helps break the monotone, increases your gathering skill earlier on and you’ll need it later.

3) Have your inventory open during your first trip to London. Right click on your bread/chocolate milk etc food supplies if the mobs hit you on the way! Rest at the corners of the map!!

4) If you get knocked out, you revive at the last visited town. Not the nearest one!!!

Hello kitty online Founders beta!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

Ok so finally I have my screenshots up, not a whole lot of them though.

But here are a few tips I have

1) Mobs in sanrio harbour do not auto attack. So gathering and chopping trees and be levelled up there. Level 5 is pretty decent, 6 and 7 possible although it seems to get slower

2) Manfacturing helps you to level up (within sanrio harbour) , so after you collect extra basil leaves/wood from the various trees to level up, go and sell them to the food shop and buy lots of stuff to make plenty of slick stones and bread. Aim for at least level 3 or 4

3) If you can get your hands on them, buy/borrow from other players good clothing that increase your stats, that will help you in your journey around the forests :)

One complain I have: They renamed the armadillo to pangolin…. just after I got used to the first name too… oh well

So here we go back to the beginning, I went through the various rooms and saw hello kitty… or not quite so? Hello kitty guide but not quite her. Anyway it was nice to see her :)

One busy weekend

Monday, October 13th, 2008

This weekend was realllly busy. On saturday morning, fresh with the concerns of hko, I logged on to noliai’s chat room and told some people that if you copied the updated stuff from another friend who succesffully updated, you can log into the game. I am not sure if this spread or if someone else figured this because I noticed the other singaporeans ingame on sunday.

So right after that, I got ready for a school reunion. Because my school is near the city area, I decided to go early and take a chance to shop in the city. I got myself furry yarn balls at 50cents each from spotlight!!!!! I bought 7 balls for only $3.50… I feel like going back to get more… hahahahha

So after that I realized I didn’t really know how to get to school from there… because I always went to school from the other direction, straight from home instead of from the city. So I walked up and down and around and finally got to the right busstop (by which time my feet were hurting lol)

So the reunion was fun. I hardly ate because I was saying hi to old friends and taking photos. It was one big whirwind until it was over and we sang the school song together (with the help of the lyrics on our programme booklet haha)

So after that, I went to my friend’s house for yet another meetup! We had dinner (japanese bento, mine was grilled salmon and stuff.. yummy!) and I bought apples too on the way there. After that we got out my friend’s new spiderman monopoly game and had a go at it. It was very well made, the mini houses are of varying designs which is so adorable! It was also quite an experience using brand new “fresh” monopoly money haha. We played until I thought I needed to leave to catch the last bus… and then another friend offered to send me home so I stayed instead, we first tried a shooter resident evil game on the wii, which I am bad at because I can’t aim and I can’t notice all the stuff that I need to pick up hehe… then one of them brought out this patapon game, its a very cute rhythm game, while another friend played an rpg while we watched :) So it was past midnight by no time and we all went home. And then I think I got on HKO for a short while haha.

The next day I went to church and then I came home for a short  while to play HKO a lil bit, then I went out again to help my cousin with her studies, she has exams soon! And then after that I had dinner and came home again and then my parents were busy, so I tried to get on HKO a bit, but soon after I decided to bring my niece to the park. So off I went again and tired her out suitably, so that she came back got bathed and went to sleep. Finally I could play HKO again hehehehehehhe. I got my character up to level 9 I think… can’t remember if i reached 10 and am working on the spider quest for now.  I saw noliai, ripplecloud, dawnlaree, starrfire7, ghost,bunnywinx and a whole lot of people ingame! Tonight I have to do my laundry because I didn’t do it all weekend and the basket is spilling over hahaha. But once that is done I’ll go ingame for a short while again :):)

Http/1.1 404 not found

Friday, October 10th, 2008

I’m going to remember that for a long time I think haha.

Was feeling anxious when preopening many people could get past the autoupdate and see the log in screen, but I saw that message instead. Everytime at 100% on the lower bar and 14% on the upper bar.

So I was chatting with Starrfire who had the same error. Somehow ripple cloud did not. I made a brash guess… I suspect its the ISP that me and Starrfire shares.

I have been used to all the times when my forums change ips and I’m always one of the last to be able to access it. I think my ISP is very slow at updating their DNS tables… Hmmm possible?

Regardless, this means that it should solve itself within a week or two. That also means though that hopefully any events ingame start after a week or two. I think those make the game extra special (even if the quests are plenty fun too)
