Hey there Hoppereenos. How goes this really different and out of the ordinary event? Well it is now running down and coming to a close for us. So now the question remains, what on earth to do with all the Elixr we have been acquiring? Well I am here to help out a bit on that front. From the point of view of designing.
Now to start off…I just wanted to toss these in as they are in game cash, but still cool.
Chained Nerds (Blue Mage$ 35,000, Red Mage $50,000): These lil guys make me giggle. Just think about it. My very own Nerds, all locked up, can’t run away from me…errrr…I mean… they can be used to guard your Castles long after the event is done with. Or for you chess enthusiasts, they really do make great “pawns” for your chess sets I have seen and made myself.
Now on to the Elixr stuffs.
Windmill (2000): This adds an interesting element in an area by the top of a created 3D hill. Maybe with Springfield Falls running down from it. Or compliments a farm look. I also think it looks kinda cool next to the Hungry Hun.
Two-Story Outhouse (3000): This one just makes me giggle. It doesn’t necessarily need to be an “outhouse” per say. You can have it be kind of an addition to Fort Sensible or a place for the kids to play in the backyard, like in place of a tree house.
Medieval Tent (300): This one can be used to add to a “circus” theme with the Freakshow tent. It can look cook as an accent to Kamp Krusty as run down tents for the kids. Or just a campground anywhere with fire pits nearby.
Guillotine (5000): This one for me just adds to the Medieval theme all around. I wish there was a lil more animation with it, but it still may work as an accent piece to an Itchy & Scratchy themed area. Complete with their balloons. I even thought one with a chicken coop or reindeer coop outside of Krusty Burger would bring a laugh.
Hay Cart (200): This looks cool on any farm setting of course. It also adds to the appeal of Halloween when tossed into a pumpkin patch setting. Hay rides for the kids. It even works next to Abe’s Cabin.
Castle Wall (100): Walls are pretty much interchangeable around Springfield. They can be used to surround the Penitentiary, to make a tall 3D building structure, make a parking garage with, or to build a massive water retaining wall.
There are a few thought and ideas from me on what to do with these items. Now I am curious what YOU think? Any locations you found these items to really add to? Any design suggestions you may have? Let your fellow readers know. We LOVE to hear from you.
