Hello kitty online and real geography

Friday, December 19th, 2008

So you know, I thought hello kitty online was just going to squeeze all the cool buildings from one place into a map haphazardly. And I had never been to london or paris so I had no idea that..

THEY USED REAL MAPS FOR REFERENCE!!!!!

That struck me only when they did New York, because I visited there before. It looks the same from the area map! Seriously! I’m pretty amazed, so here are the real london and paris maps for comparision, for all those people like me who never been to these awesome places XD

Now I totally want them to make a mini Singapore T_T

P.S. If you can match all the unnamed places on the HKO maps with their real names please do so!!!!

P.P.S. TY Starrfire for taking the screenshots for me!!!

Insane Scorpion

6) And so yeah I figured there would be a Crazy Centepede too…

Crazy Centepede

7) I decided to go for the leopard glass quest after rainyG said she could make bee stinger wands for me. So I spent time helping new people like Alanna here. I advertised to swop her newbie items for my higher level ones. Then we realized that she couldn’t equip them yet. So I led her through the quests until she levelled up (but not enough for mine yet) and also  got another clothing item from one of the quest and seemed pretty much ready to go.

I see my guild members now and then :) Starrfire and Kiui seem to keep rather similar hours to me online.

Body doubles and Crop circles

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

OOOh so I totally like making stuffs so I was happy to see the body doubles thing :) I dress up like my avatar.

I didn’t have a few things so I did the following

1) Draw hello kitty birthday shirt

2) Make the rose out of paper on an existing flower stem

3)  Stick a blue pendant onto an existing necklace

4) Put red beads on an existing earring

5) Make leopard glasses out of craft paper and black plastic bag (yeah I couldn’t see a thing… its not function xD)

6) Made aYellow star wand over an existing white star wand

7) Wrapped my broom up with red plastic bag (to match colours!)

8) Borrowed my dad’s shoes for the last oufit (hehehehe)

Check my video out here….

Mishmash weekend update

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

Writing:

Nanowrimo has started and after thinking over it, I think I have my idea for the month. I missed the first two days due to my friends wedding (which was a whole lot of fun) and am going to try my best to catch up anyway :D

Hello kitty online:

I got on for the first 30 minutes of the party 1 and after that had to rush out of the house for the rest of the day!

Later on, like about 14 hours later, I came home and  got back to playing. I had missed party 2 and my guild members were full of wonderful stories :)

I continued the farming in our quest to explode our warehouses, and made lots of food. Finally I decided to give it a rest… mostly because my fingers were dying. I can only say, thanks game designers for including the production all button… now can we have a gather all button in the farm? lol T_T

Skill points in HKO

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

So I was wrong, you actually get skills from whacking mobs! I had no idea, really because gathering and chopping and the other skills were just so much more visibly increasing my overall skill level.

Anyway another realisation.

As you level up, you use less energy to collect the same resource!

I was using 10 energy to chop one high level wood (hedgehod/goat moss thingy)

Then i levelled up and it used only 6 energy o.O

Interesting huh? I am not sure what these numbers are at lower levels.

Also I only use 2 energy to gather and mine for now. I am not sure how that works out and why it is so significantly lower. Does it have anything to do with the equipment used?
