Wow, if that was actually a joke it’d probably be one of the dumbest ones ever… kind of like one Horatio McCallister would tell at Floppy’s. (“The Bart Wants What it Wants”, S13:E11).
Speaking of the Sea Captain, I actually had a point. Now that the Wicked Glitch of the East(er) is over, you may find yourself wondering what to do now. Well, the obvious answer is to spend some of that free time with friends and family (lol) but if you’re not so inclined, another idea is a re-design.
Now, a complete re-do of your town can be one heck of a task (done it before and fighting the urge to do it again) considering where you are in progress, but sometimes we don’t think about the smaller things we can do like changing around certain areas, etc. To illustrate this, I figured I’d just share one of my latest new areas… my Squidport.
Now I’ve come to think of this area as Wookieeport but it’s always been one of those things that I want to fix over and over again. Here’s what my port looked like before I decided to tear it all up.
When redesigning, I actually moved my entrance to the top portion of my map and then worked from there with shops, stuff, etc. I definitely wanted it to have more of a dock feel (in case we get more boats in the future) but also someplace people might go. Here’s what it looks like now. I must admit I was super stoked that both Banana Dictatorship and Johnny Fiestas were allowed to go on the tiles.
Something important to point out is I tried my darnedest to stay within the 150 tile max most players have. I do have more than that but that’s a positive glitch story which serves no purpose any more. The second is that although I don’t know if the design is any better, my characters now walk down the road and can be found wandering my port from the entrance all the way to the submarine. So if my townsfolk visit more, it must be an improvement, right?
There I go confusing reality with my town where I am the omnipotent Wookiee sky-fuzz-finger of destiny. Anywho… while we’re talking about Squidport, anyone else hope to see more and more added? Just some small ideas in my noggin are introducing Judge Constance Harm including her houseboat.
Another would be Wiggum’s police boat.
Plenty of other stuff we could see, I actually rambled on this previously here and here. Chime in below with any thoughts you have about Squidport or about any re-designs you’ve done, have in progress or are planning to do. We always love to hear from our favorite tappers.
As one final little note, if you’re wondering how I got these stitched images, I use a program called Autostitch but also sometimes do my stitches by hand. Bunny and I wrote a post about it you can find here. To be honest, I find myself using Bunny’s methods more and more but my new Sqp was done by autostitching two parts and then combining them in paint. Here’s what it looked like at first and I share only because it’s like a modern art masterpiece and I kinda wish my SqP could curve like this lol.
Keep on tapping in the free world. TTFN… Wookiee out!
