[1.01] Introduction

Welcome to my first DS Guide, about the Electronics Art release of MySims. 
This is also my 27th guide. Enjoy reading it, as much as I have for writing 
it. Let me point out some key differences in MySims. 

There is now no needs bar. No need for energy, bladder, etc. All that is 
gone. Some people complain that it removes a necessity element from the game,
however, I have to admit, it is a nice change. For a person who has played 
all of the GBA ports, the needs bar forced you to do things, such as visit 
home, and go toilet, whilst in the middle of a mission. This was seriously
annoying, and now it is gone. However, this means your home is purely for
aesthetic reasons, for sleep and storing stuff. Thats about it. 

Relationship system is changed. You basically talk to people, but you really
can't maintain relationships with them. Also, there are no personality points
to assign. Therefore, there are no more issues about zodiac compatibility. 
With the removal of personality points comes the removal of skill points. 
There are no more skill points, such as cleaning, mechanical, logic, cooking 
and charisma. 

There have been comparsions between Animal Crossing : Wild World with MySims.
Although there are similarities, such as fishing and planting flowers, it 
would be unfair to compare both on the same level. They are not the same game
and some aspects are better than others. The "cuteness" factor has a role to
play somewhat, and this, coupled in of how the game is played, is significant.
This is demonstrated in the AOE v EE debate. Empire Earth 2 mimicked the 
resource depletion of Age of Empires, and people called EE2 a rip off of AOE.
Again, they are not the same games, they have different gameplay, and it is
unfair to compare apples with oranges. Besides the fact they are both fruit,
it is unfair to compare them on the same level. 

[1.02] Version History

Version 0.1 [3/11/07]
Started the guide for MySims. Started on the Storyline, Shop Lists, Tourism,
Fishing, Racquetball and The Cast. I'm playing this as we go along, so it
would be messy. 

Version 0.2 [4/11/07]
Progressing fine. Powering up in Star Levels and in fishing. 

Version 0.3 [8/11/07]
ASCII added. Added a bit more only. 

Version 0.4 [28/11/07]
Update on guide.

Version 0.5 [25/2/08]
New Year update. Finishing this guide is next on my to do list. Did a lot more
than finished some more bits and pieces.

Version 0.6 [26/2/08]
Update, on many levels and is nearly complete. 

Version 037 [27/2/08]
The guide is basically finished, and therefore, there will be no more updates,
except the fish book, but that depends since I would want to do it in a 
single go.

[2.01] Getting Started

First of all, you can start with MySims. The first thing you will really have
to do is to choose your Gender. This can be male or female. The next thing 
will be the clothing. You can choose your clothes only at this moment. After 
you have done this, we started.

You talk to the Boat captain, and you will get to name your town. Name it as
you will. As you get off at the pier, you will see a strange Sim with a dog as
a hat. Ok... Anyway, you will follow this Sim till you get tired, and go to
the Mayors house to meet the Mayor, Helen. Press A to talk to her and she 
needs some help finding her Grandson. She says he will be hanging out near the

Press Y on your map and find the courts. You will see the strange Sim from
before, Tim. He won't talk to you, so make him happy. This will be the happy
meter. Just choose listen because it works the best. Now that we are all the
best of friends, we head back to the Mayor's House.

She didn't catch your name, so now we get to name your MySim. Confirm with the
touch pad. She will mention Tyler the Tailor and Ewan the police officer. If
it is such a small community, surely there wouldn't be a lot of crime. 

By now, you should have seen time changing. Although this is explained later,
let me explain now. The day is divided into 4 parts, Morning, Noon, Evening
and Night. As you play, time progresses in the background, and the parts 
move along. The positions of Sims will move when the time changes as well as
how they act. 

[2.02] Exploring Town

Time to explore the town. First, lets pay Tyler a visit. His house will be 
South West of the Fountain. Of course, he is sad that there is no one to buy
his clothes, so you have to make him Happy. You are going to have to encourage
and listen, conversing will lose you points. He is now preparing to open 
shop tomorrow, so you can't do anything else. Off to explore again. 

The game suggests that you meet Ewan. Of course we will. His house is directly
north of the Town Hall. Ewan is angry because there is no one to serve justice
upon. Isn't that a good thing? Anyway, make him happy. Start crying, because
conversing, as it has been so far, doesn't get you anywhere. Anyway, he sees
potential in you, so off we go. Head back to the Town Hall.

Talk to Helen, who says that it used to be a resort town, but people left and
so did the businesses. Then, someone, who greatly shocks your character, walks
in. It is a person called Ashley and she is a florist and is willing to run
the florist. Off she goes. Helen wants you to check on how though. 

The Sun sets. The florest is East of the Town Hall. She will be outside her
store. She complains there are no flowers in the town, asking you to help
her plant flowers in the town's flower beds. She will give you some flowers,
at first, a tulip. Lets start with the first flowerbed outside the town
hall. Plant three tulips there to fill the flowerbed. 

The next flowerbed is south of the florist, very close to where Ashley is.
Again, plant three here and move towards Tyler's store. West of it will be
another flowerbed. Well, we have to plant 4 here. Head back to Ashley for
some more flowers. The last flowerbed in town is on the path west of the 
fountain. Basically, open your map and find it. Again, we will need to 
plant 4 flowers. Head back to Ashley for the completion of your job. For
this job, she gives you 200 Simoleons. And you will reach Star Level 1. 

Head back to Helen for completing your job. Let me explain Star Levels,
although the game does do a good job. The more star levels you have, the
prettier the how looks, attracting more tourists and thus, more events. 
She designates your house, East of the town. Leave town to the east and
have a look at your house. Enter. 

[2.03] Home Sweet Home

Welcome Home. Your house is rather small. First, lets unpack. Press R and you
will see what you have. You have a Green Chest, a Red Closet and a Yellow
Bed. Place these items by following the tutorial. Place your bed and go to
sleep. When you sleep from now on, there will be three options. There will
be Nap, Sleep and Deep Sleep. A Nap will progress one portion of the day,
that means, the transition from Morning to Noon, Noon to Evening, Evening
to Night, and Night to Morning. Sleep means 2 portions will be skipped and
Deep Sleep should be three. Wake up and read the News. Now, you will Warp to 
the Town Hall. 

Olivia, the manager of the General Store is back from her trip. Joesph the
fisherman is also back and there are rumours of someone living in the Forest.
She also mentions that Tyler and Ashley have opened shop thanks to you. 
Tourists are starting to visit the town. Who to visit first. I'll let you
decide and list what happens where. Also, you will now get information about
the time. This shows how time is split up. 

Lets visit Ashley first. She has opened the Florest, selling flowers for 
your home. You can also receive Bouquet of Flowers to Tourists to please 
them. Talk to her again and you can Go Shopping or Help. You can purchase
plants for your home or for tourists. 

After you visit Ashley, head to the Bus Area. This is directly West of the
Fountain in the Town's Centre. You will find Tyler en route. Talk to him. He
says that his store needs all the help he can get. Exit the Town from the
South, followin the road. Follow the road pass the pier area. Soon, with your
map you, you will see a House with a Furniture sign. Enter. 

You will have to wake up Sophie. Just converse and does as you wish. Once you
are successful, Sophie will wake up. Talk to her and this will increase your
Star Level. You can now buy furniture from her. How we have this sorted, lets
move East along the road. We will find Tim here, at the Farm!?!

Anyway, head back into town by following the road. By now, it should be noon.
Lets go to Tyler's Store now, since it opens at Noon. This will increase your
Star Rating once you talk to him. Now, head to the Racquetball Courts and
talk to Tim.

Tim suggests that we have a famous Racquetball player to attract more tourists
into town. He gives you a regular Racquet to practice. You can now go to the
Courts and play Racquetball. You also cannot play Racquetball at night, 
probably a safety hazard.

[2.04] Exploring the Land

Anyway, after you have finished with Racquetball, head down to the port area
where you should enter the Top Building. You will find Joseph inside. Talk
to him and comfort him. He will accept you and ask if you want to go fishing.
This will increase your Star Level. 

Anyway, to find the last person, Olivia. Head to her store, which is south
of the Town Hall. Once inside, no one is here? Walk over to the suit of
armour and inspect it. You will also get 300 Simoleons for helping her out
of the armour. This will also increase your Star Level. 

Head to Sophie's Hut. She now doesn't seem to wake now. Walk around and she
will mention Walk around for a while again, examine some items
and she will ask you to name her store. Name the store to whatever you 
wish. Confirm it. This will increase your Star Meter as well. 

What for a day or so. Now, we need to pay a visit to Joseph. The claims he 
is busy but he is looking a bit down. Cheer him up, encourage him and converse
with him. 

Now, talk to Ewan. Now that you should have some tourists in town, he will
ask you to help the town. Helen has faith in you so you have to take the test
about your knowledge of the town. He will give you a camera and ask you to
go to the Forest and take a photo of the Symbol Tree. Go to the Forest. 

In the forest, open up your map. You should see Sophie's Shop there. Follow 
the dirt path from the store North. Soon, you will see a tree, making a 
circle on the path visible on the map. Take a photo of the tree and show it
to Ewan. He will be pleased and says that you can keep the camera. Nice. 
This will increase the Star Meter. If you have been following what I've said,
it should nearly be full now. 

Head back to Joseph now. This should be done during the evening when he is not
so busy. He wishes to see all the fish in the world, and he gives you a 
fishing rod to let you catch fish and show him. You can only fish in rivers 
and in the ocean. This fact should increase your Star Meter. It should nearly
be full now. 

Pay a visit to Ashley in here store. She is planning to make leis, and she is
awful at them, and she needs a hand. Another minigame for you. She will now
give you a lei to give to tourists, and guess what. LEVEL UP. We have reached
Star Level 2!

[2.05] A New Horizon

New stores have now opened up and the Mayor is going to open a new transport
system. Wonderful!

The Mayor has decided to introduce a Trolley System, it will cost you a 
small amount of Simoleons to use, but will save you time walking. Also, the
Mayor has hired someone to reopen the Bakery. However, she thinks that the
Highlands need to be addressed as they do not have the funds to hire a ranger.

Anyway, lets test the trolley. It only costs §10 a ride. Anyway, head back
into town and talk with the baker, who offers you an experimental cake? How
can cakes be experiments? Alway, he introduces himself as Chef Charlie. You
now have the ability to buy cakes. Cakes can be used as gifts, just like 
flowers are. This will provide a massive boost to your Star Meter. It is more
than half full, which is good news. 

Head to the Highlands and enter the Rangers Hut. Someone obviously isn't
happy at you. Marie will greet you as the new ranger the town cannot afford. 
She obviously doesn't know how to improve the highlands, so you have to figure
it out yourself. You need to approach areas where there is little grass, so
the dirt patches show. Most of them are near the road.

You have the option of planting a bed of sunflowers or tulips, build a 
sculpture or place a garden parasol. There are 5 patches to take care of. 
There are 18 patches that you can choose from. There are 6 due east of the
ranger's hut. There is another set of 6 south west of the lake. The final set
of 6 can be found due east of the last patch, or south east of the lake. 
Customise how you want the Highlands to look, this is your choice. 

Anyway, head to the General Store. Olivia should say she will be absent the
next day because she is out of stock. In two days time, pay her a visit and
you will see she is missing again. Again, check under the table. She got 
stuck there looking for something. For saving her, you get §500. I did this 
on a Tuesday if that helps at all. After you talk to her after her latest
disaster, you will have new items to purchase, including a black and white

Ok, one day after you have decorated the Highlands, head back and talk to 
Marie. She has found a Paraglider, and because it is old, she asks you to
fly it and test if it is broken. You have no choice, even if you back out. 
This opens up a new minigame. This will also greatly boost your Star 
Meter. We are nearly there because it is nearly full. 

Wait for the next day, and talk to Marie again. She complains that no one 
goes paragliding, and that people might be interested if there was a good
paraglider in the area, ie, you. If you choose paragliding now, it will cost
you §50 to play. Rather expensive? 

Go to Chef Charlie. You will need to buy some cakes from him. I had to buy
about 5 to make him talk to me. He will give you a special offer. Buy more
cakes and he will tell you a secret. For you only. He can tell you how the
other customers are feeling. 

Now, Chef will tell you something about himself. He says how everyone expects
him to be like his Italian chef cousin Gino. But he likes Chinese food, and
wishes to mix Chinese food and cake together. Anyway, from now on, if you
buy some cakes from him, he will give you some news on his customers. 

Anyway, go play some Racquetball. After you have finished your game, 
regardless of your score, Tim will talk to you, saying that you would be 
board of endless rally. He has arranged to play Target 1, whatever that is.
This will add to your Star Meter, and by now, we are at STAR LEVEL 3. Yes.
Finally, we have reached the third star level.

[2.06] The Next Chapter

All the businesses in town are open and people are eager to work. Sims from
the outlying island is coming to work in your town. Talk to the Mayor, who
says that someone applied to become the new Forest Ranger. There is also a 
ferry service to the outlying island, to the island's Entertainment Area. 

Well, first things first. We should head to the Forest area to find the new
Forest Ranger. Obviously, the Ranger doesn't know who you are, the town's
tourism expert. While you are conversing, you will notice one new addition.
You know have four options to choose from while you are trying to boost the
happiness meter of the Ranger. Anyway, once you are successful, the Ranger
will introduce himself as Foster. He is an animal lover and wants to do
anything he can to help them. As such, he needs your help to save the 
animals. Accept his offer, and head outside.

Your job here is to enhance the forest. You can approach a withered tree
and Press A, or Press the tree. After you do that, you will need to plant a
tree there. Lets get moving. Like the Highlands, you will need to find some
dead trees and remove them. There are 1 bunch of six trees. There is one batch
will be directly South of the Ranger's Hut, past the river. There are smaller
bunches of dead trees as well. There is a bunch of 3 directly south of the 
path east of the Ranger's Hut. There are two north of Sophie's Store whilst 
there is one west of the store. 

Like your job in the Highlands, you will have to plant some items to liven 
the place up. You can place a Tree in the spot, a Flowering Tree, install a
Rest Area or place a Tent. You can arrange this in any way you like. Just
like your job in the Highlands, there are more than 5 dead trees to install
items. Foster will pay you §800 for completing your job. This should give a 
boost to your Star Meter. 

The trees that you have planted, if you did, will take some time to grow from
their sapling form. Anyway, head to the Port Area. Head to the pier, where you
will see a familar face, the boat captain who brought you here. She runs the
ferry service now. She will introduce herself as Nicki. This will give a nice
boost to your Star Meter. I swear she was a guy. Anyway, get on board by
talking to Nicki once more. It will cost you §50 for the fare. Lets get to the
other side. 

There are also tourists in the Entertainment area so you can make some money. 
In this area, there is the Casino. It is the biggest building so you cannot
miss it. It is however, only open during the nighttime. Lets go fishing
here. In the water are bigger fish. Much bigger than what you've been catching
so far. 

Wait in the Entertainment Area till it is night. Fish around or play with the
tourists. Wait till it is night and enter the casino. You will need to 
purchase coins from the Casino in order to play on the machines and these 
can be traded for some rare prizes. 

After your fun at the casino, wait until day and head outside. You will notice
a lady with blonde hair and red ribbon next to the edges on the water. Her 
name is Elizabeth. You are going to have to converse with her as she doesn't
want to trouble you. She has a pet house near here, but it is too cramped for
her pet. So, what did she do? She bought the entire island and decided to
build a big house for her pet and is looking to sell her current pet house. 
She asks if you are looking for a new home. Agree and she says that she 
bought the house for... §300000000. That is 300 million Simoleons!!! But you
can have it for the price of a day's pet food, §10000. If you have the money,
by all means purchase it. You can buy it later anyway. This talk will greatly
boost your Star Meter. 

When you are done, head back into town. Head into the Forest and you will
see animals all over the place. Guess our plan for an enhanced forest is 
working. Now, talk to Foster, and he says that although here are animals,
there are not a lot. He needs you to make some animal feed. He can make 
animal feed with one flower and one fish. Well, go fishing and catch a 
fish and go to Ashley's to buy a flower. A tulip will do.

Whilst you are in town, play Target 1 Racquetball. Once you do, regardless of
your score, Tim will come up and give you a new game, Target 2 to play. This
will increase your Star Meter. Also, while you are in town, check on Olivia
and wait until she says something about closing tomorrow because of stock.
Soon, when she reopens, she will have even more things to buy. 

With all the tourists around the highlands, Marie will have more items so
you can customise the highlands. You will have 5 more items to decorate the
highland with so decorate it till your hearts content. With these items, there
will be a new one. You can place a bird house on the Highlands. This will
increase your Star Meter. 

Anyway, back on track. Talk to Foster and make some animal feed. Give him a 
flower, a tulip will do. Then, give him a fish. He will make and give you
some super feed. You can use super feed to the animals and feed them it, 
for which they will become friendly with you. Press A next to an animal
and you will feed them. Super Feed is one use only though. 

Wait a day and talk to Marie in the Highlands. She will have even more 
decorations that you can use. This will boost your Star Meter as well. You
will now have a new type of decoration, an Animal Shaped Shrubbery. Reminds
me of Monty Python. Anyway, decorate and finish. With 15 decorations, the
Highlands is completely decorated. 

Well, by now, you should have been earning some good money. Anyway, when you
have the §10000, go purchase the cottage from Elizabeth. It is located north
of the Entertainment Area. It will give you a boost to your Star Meter when
you buy the home. 

This is the harder part. You are going to have to make some leis for Ashley.
You will need to get gold for making small leis to get a small boost to the
star meter. You need to make it to normal leis because currently, you are on
easy. After that, you will need to keep making leis until you get to hard
leis. This will also boost your star meter. You will need to get silver on
normal difficulty to get hard leis. 

Meanwhile, you will need to pay a visit to Tyler. He is down, again. He hears
comments that he is old-fashioned. Converse with him as usual. He also needs
you help, to design some clothes. Wow, thats a first. You also play 
racquetball, paraglide, fish and design towns in your spare time. Anyway,
agree to his request. It is colour coded. Well, he will give you §500 for your
troubles and you can now design clothes. This will increase your star meter.

Anyway, you must find Tim now. He sees that you are getting better and better
at Racquetball and will give you a Heavy Racquet. Thats nice. I must have been
either playing too much Racquetball or neglecting him because he then gave me
a Speed Racquet. I'm not sure that this is something I have missed or not.

Now, pay a visit to Sophie. You will need to buy some stuff from her before
you can talk to her. Anyway, talk to her and she will say that she has some 
new ideas for furniture. You will need to visit her tomorrow. Visit and see
that she has completely restocked her store, with lots of new stuff. You can
do the same with Olivia, who will restock the next day. 

Anyway, talk to Elizabeth who says that she owns the Mountain, and doesn'
know what to do with it. Talk to the mayor now who says that it is owned by a
wealthy Sim so it cannot be used as a tourist attraction. 

Anyway, you will need to get your Star Meter up now. You really need to talk
with some tourists, who will have some requests for you. Some of them involve
you parting with an item in your inventory, and they will pay well for it.

After a couple of days, you will need to talk to Sophie again. She has no
inspiration for new furniture and asks you to design some for her. You now 
have access to essence of forest and guess what, we reach Star Level 4!

[2.07] The Last Star

Well, the mountain is now opened with Elizabeth donating the mountain back
to the town, with a ranger to go with it. Anyway, your first job will be to
pay a visit to the mountain and talk to the blue hair ranger, Tracy. She 
isn't all to happy with the desolate barren land of the mountain, so as we 
do with all new visitors, converse. After that, she introduces herself as 
Tracy and says sorry for mistaking you for Elizabeth, painful if you are a 

Anyway, she was looking for a quick buck and was scammed. She says that since
you live here, you will have to dig for something valuable for her, and gives
you a shovel, which has a §50 rental fee. I think I just got scammed. Anyway,
you will now go into the game of Dowsing. Basically, you will need to move
around the mountain area and double click around the area. It is basically
a game of warmer or colder. Blue means you are far from a source of valuables
while red means it is close by. Once you have figured out where the ore is,
double click on the suspect area. Once there, if there is a ! mark, you will
need to slide your stylus to dig it up. You are awarded points for any ore you
dig up. 

Anyway, dig up a piece of ore and give it to Tracy, who exclaims that it is
gemstone ore. She of course, takes it from you and gives you credit that you
can use. This can be redeemed for a large manner of items. You will still need
to pay a rental fee of §50 for each time you use the shovel. You can now go 
dowsing and redeem points by talking to Tracy. After this charade, this will
give you a boost to your star meter. 

Come back another day and talk to Tracy again. She says that she wants to open
up a Paragliding business, better than the one in the Highlands. And best of 
all, it won't cost her since she "borrowed" the equipment from Marie. And just
what, you are going to do a test run. To make sure it is safe of course. Well,
since you didn't die, she will open up the Paragliding tomorrow. This also 
gives a massive boost to your star meter. 

Head to Olivia and she will talk to you about jewels. There are those that you
can redeem off Tracy and Pearls that you can obtain via fishing. Anyway, give
her one and she will make something for you later. While you are redeeming
stuff off Tracy, you need to purchase a head and body item from her in order
to complete this star level. Continue your digging in order to get enough 
points to do so.

Once you have the head, you can go to Helen and she will ask you to build a 
statue with the parts that you have collected. Give her the parts to do so
and you will complete this star level as well as a nice bonus of §1000 to
top it off. Note that once you design the head, you can redesign it by talking
to Helen, so that design is not permanent. Congratulations, you have reached 

[2.08] A New Dawn

The Report comes in and you have finished the game, well, the storyline based
bit of it anyway. Since this game is neverending, it will never finish, until
you decide to break the cartridge into bits and pieces. Anyway, you need to
head to the Entertainment Area because somebody is there to talk to you.
Talk to Nicki, board the boat and move off to the airfield. 

The guy's name is Martin and apparently, his nice airplane made a landing on
the airfield, a very bad one at that. So in order to get home, he decides to
open a business, using his aircraft, after the repairs are done, which is
probably the next day. Come back and visit him in a few days. In the mean
time, you can visit the shops around the place and let them upgrade for the
final time. Visit Olivia when she finishes and she will give you a really
nice item. From now on, you can use Olivia to make Jewellry for you if you 
have either a Jewel from Tracy or a Pearl.

Anyway, you can now visit Foster and he will allow you to upgrade the Forest
for the final time. This also allows you to use the Sculptures to decorate
the Forest as well. When you do, he will finally be happy.

After a hiatus of about 5 days, go back to visit Martin and his plane will
be fixed. You can now go Skydiving. It only costs a mere §200 and you can make
some serious money.

Also, the back and forth travelling between the Entertainment Area and the
Mainland will allow Nicki to discover a new boat, that was seemingly abandoned
in the middle of the sea. Guess what that's for. Anyway, come back the next
day and Nicki announces that Helen allows him to keep the boat, and he has to
come up with an idea, so come back and visit him later. Visit her tomorrow and
she will open up his new business, the Scuba Diving business. It will cost you
though, a cool §100.

[5.01] Dealing with Tourists

You will need to make the Tourists happy to make some money. The more happy
tourists, the better the town will be. You will see tourists around the town.
They do not have any ID on the map, so you need to spot them. 

When you talk with them, they will say really silly things. This is what I
have seen so far: I broke my favourite sunglasses
                  I've been dumped by my girlfriend
                  I was walking and then suddenly tripped and fell
                  Know of any good places around here?
                  All the Sims are here look flaky
                  This place is boring
                  What is this place? Theres nothing here
                  You can forget all your worries here and relax
                  What a beautiful day
                  I can't take it anymore!
                  Oh, a bug bit me
                  I've lost all my money at the casino
                  Whats with the store clerks in the town?
                  I'd love to go swimming in the beautiful ocean

Anyway, converse with them. Trial the options available to you to see what 
works and what doesn't. It varies from Tourist to Tourist. You can also 
present them with gives if you have any. Gives such as flowers are the best. 
This will give you a boost to the happiness meter. You still have to converse
with them though. 

Sometimes while you converse, and this happens moreso on the 5th Star level,
the tourists will be angry when the time starts to run thin, you will have a
Yes or No option saying that you could make them even more angry than they
currently are. By suggesting No, you will instantly end the conservation with
the maximum heart meter, regardless of how high it was beforehand. In some
cases, such as tourists asking if they can trust you, you will answer Yes.
Depends on the question really.

For this, there are 4 questions that they will ask you.

Question 1
"I don't care what you say, I'm still mad" - Select No

Question 2
"I have a hard time believing you" - Select No

Question 3
"Really? Ok, I'll just have to trust you" - Select Yes

Question 4
"What? Are you actually worried about me?" - Select Yes

For some tourists however, they will request you perform a certain task or
provide them with an item of yours. Some of these can include asking you to
make items for them, such as leis, or provide them an item in your inventory
that you can give them for a decent amount of §§§.

If you fill the happy meter, they will obviously be happy. This will increase
the amount of Simoleons that you currently have. The amount seems to depend
on the tourist, as some give more than others. 

Places where I have seen Tourists

* Town Fountain
* Inside and Outside Ashley's Florist
* Inside and Outside Tyler's Tailor Store
* Inside and Outside Charlie's Cake Store
* Outside Olivia's Store
* Marvelling at the Town Statue
* Staring at Windmills in the Highlands after you have decorated the Highlands
* Entertainment Area

The higher your star level, the more you obviously make from the tourists and
the more of them there will be. The funny thing is, when Sims say they don't 
have a penny after gambling at the casino, they can still pay you. 

[5.02] The Disco

The Disco is located in the Entertainment Area, and only opens during the
night, which is what is meant by Preparing to Open for Business. It however,
has a hefty entry fee of §500. Pay it and enter. You will receive a message
that the tourists in here will have their opinions of an area changed. They
will all be able to be conversed to change their opinions, so bear that in

What this actually does? Well, it might increase the amount of tourists in
that area, but that is about it. Besides that, it doesn't do anything else.
There are generally about 3 Sims in the disco at any one time so in my 
opinion, don't bother. 

[6.01] How to Fish

It isn't all that hard to fish. First of all, you will need the fishing rod
from Joseph the fisherman. He will give you one after you cheer him up.
To fish, you will need to be next to flowing water, be it the river, the
mountain pond or the ocean. 

To catch a fish, you will need to cast the lure. This is simply you using the
touch pad and tapping where you want the lure to be. Move the lure to where
you want it to be. This would normally be where the fish are. Well, wait 
until either the fish bite your lure or move away, in which you move the lure
to their new location. This takes some patience. When you move the lure, some
fish react differently to others. This means, they either like or dislike
your lure, demonstration by the music notes. The double note means good, the
single is bad. Anyway, you must not that just because a bite and pulls 
underwater your lure, it doesn't mean that the fish will always be caught.
There is a chance that the fish can't be reeled in. 

To get them to bite your line, you have to use your stylus and move the bob
in circles over a fish. This will produce music notes. Keep doing this till
the fish or other fish come along and bite. You will have to move the bob
in circles over the fish very clickly though. 

Once they bite the lure, the lure will be below water. To reel in your line,
you need to tap the lure twice, in quick succession, in order to reel the 
line in. This will allow you to catch the fish. When you don't feel like 
fishing any longer, head back to Joseph's hut and sell him the fish. Even if
he has the fish, he will continue to buy them. 

There are several places that you can fish. You can fish in the Ocean, found 
in the Port Area, the Pond in the Highlands, the River in the Forest, the 
Pond in the Mountains and the Sea in the Entertainment Area. 

If you catch a big fish, watch your MySim, it is hilarious. They will open
their eyes and run around, till the fish lands on them, squashing them. 
It is indeed a big one. I'm more surprised that if an anchor lands on them, 
they don't die. 

Fish caught should be sold to Joseph and not Olivia. Why? Because first of
all, Joseph records the fish that you have caught and pays you well. Also,
here is a chance that there is something in the fish, such as a frog, that
you can sell for extra money. Note that this extra item is generated at the
point you give it to Joseph, so you could save game, and reload over and
over again till you get an item. Reloading might take time, and the good
thing is that there is not Resetti to annoy you for not turning off the DS

[6.02] What You Can Catch

There are two places for you to catch fish. There is the ocean and the river
that you can fish at. I will list what you can catch and where. As a side
note, unwanted junk can be caught anywhere, in the ocean or the river. If you
give Joseph rare fish, he will suffer from a near heart attack. These will be
marked with an asterisk. Those that will crush you will be marked with an
# sign.

[6.03] Fishing Rods

When you start out fishing, you will have a regular fishing rod with a little
white lure. This is your basic rod.

When you have sold Joseph about 13 fish, he will give you the Stiff Fishing
Rod. The lure you will have on the rod will be different. With this rod, it
will be more likely than before that you will catch a fish once it has bitten
the line. There will also be some new type of fish that you can catch. Also,
more likely to spawn frogs out of fish. 

Once you sell him about 30 fish, he will give you a Flexible Fishing Rod. 
It will be easier to catch fish with this. A different looking lure again
this time. It will be even easier to catch a fish now. 

Catch more species of fish, and sell them to him and he will give you the
Amusing Fishing Rod. This is the best fishing rod in the game and with your
4 fishing rods, should be able to catch all the fish in the game. 

[7.01] Racquetball

To play Racquetball, you need to go to the Racuqetball courts. They are 
located in the Town Main and the Highlands. Select your Racquet as the item 
needed to play. Basically, it is tennis against a Brick Wall. You also will
get money for this. Anyway, have a game or two, and this needs some serious
practice. I only get 11 as my high score by my 5 try :( Anyway, talk to 
Tim who will ask you to get better to keep the racquet. This will increase
your Star Rating. You can now also play Racquetball where ever there is a 
Court to play in. Well, keep practicing till you get the Bronze Award. This
practice in the meantime will earn you some more Simoleons. Always good to 
have more money. And those little pigs that run in and interfere? Well, if
the ball hits them, the ball will bounce and you have to be prepared. 

In the Mountains, the hazard, instead of the little pigs that will run 
around are the rocks. Because of this, the score will be harder to obtain as
you have the bouncing around the rocks. The Highlands, however, will still 
have the little pigs as the hazard. In my opinion, the Mountains is the
hardest course to master. 

[7.02] Rally

Rally is fighting against the Brick Wall. You aim is to hit the ball as many
times as possible. When the ball travels out of bounds or you miss the ball
and it passes you, the rally is over. 

The best way to get the most points is to ensure that you don't have to move
anywhere. To do this, serve the ball first. Now, the trick to Racquetball is
that you wait for the ball to bounce after hitting the wall, then swing your
racquet. This will always allow you to hit the ball straight, allowing you to
continue. By hitting the ball straight, you don't have to move and worry about
missing because the ball doesn't force you to move. 

This will take some practice to get the hang of. The most challenging part of
rally will be the moving dog. If the ball hits the dog, it will bounce and
this can make it harder for you to hit the ball since it is in the air. It 
can however, rebound, which is a good thing. 

To achieve the Bronze Medal, you will need to score 250 points in a single
game. To achieve the Silver Medal, you will need to score 525 points and
to achieve the gold Medal, you will need 1100 points.

[7.03] Target 1

After you have progressed in the game, you will get the Target 1 option. 
This is where you have 30 seconds where the aim is to score as many points
as possible. There will be a bullseye on the wall. The aim is to hit the
red as many times as you can. The more things hit the wall on a colour, the
more points you will get. The more points you get, the higher your score.

If the ball goes dead, you get a new ball but basically, hit the wall as
many times as you can. 

To achieve the Bronze Medal, you will need a score of 1300. To achieve the
Silver Medal, you will need a score of 2500. 

[7.04] Target 2

Target 2 is basically the second test of target. This is different from target
1 in the fact that you have 60 seconds to score as many points as you can.
The aim here is to hit the apples. Apple cards will pop up and you will have
to knock them down. The more you hit, the more points you get. 

Also, just as in Target 1, if the ball goes dead, you will get a new ball to
smack around.

To achieve the Bronze Medal, you will need a score of 2200. 

[8.01] Arranging Leis

This is basically matching the cards on the table with the colour of the
flower. This is rather simple, matching about 15 flowers with the cards on
the table, and continue for three waves. Of course, to improve your score,
you need to be faster, accurate and swifter. Of course, you will get paid
for this as well. 

When you have cards that you can no longer use, use the pink switch at the 
bottom. Tap it and it will give you four new cards to match up with. Rather
simple. There are three different colours for the flowers. There is red, 
yellow and purple. 

To achieve the bronze medal, you will need to score 420. With a score of 500,
you will achieve the silver medal. With a perfect score of 550, you will get
the gold medal. As long as you are under 30 seconds, you will get 500 point
for time. If you get a card wrong, you will lose 20 points and by getting all
the cards right, you get 50 points. 

After you complete an arranging session, you will get a small lei. These are
worth §50 each at Olivia's Store. 

After you have achieved easy leis, you will move onto normal leis. You will 
need to act quickly. You will get 100 points for getting no errors while you
will get a 30 point penalty for getting one wrong. There is a maximum of 
1000 points if you manage to finish this before 40 seconds. There are now 4
colours to contend with as well.

On the normal level, you will need to get 985 points for a bronze medal. You 
will need about 1020 for the silver medal whilst you will need 1075 for the
Gold medal. 

After completing a lei on normal difficulty, you will get a regular lei. These
are worth §100 each. 

On hard difficulty, it is extremely hard. There are now 6 types of flowers
to arrange. You will need to get below 1 minute to get the full 2000 points
possible. A wrong card will lead to 100 points be deducted. If you do not get
one wrong, you will get a 200 point bonus. 

You will need a score of 2000 to get the bronze medal. You need a score of 
2100 for the silver medal and 2175 for the gold medal. 

After completing a lei on hard difficulty, you will get a large lei. It has
a value of §150.

[9.01] Paragliding

Paragliding is basically going on a hang-glider and seeing how far you can
stay in the air. That is the general gist of paragliding. You have to use the
control pad as a movement control. B is the way for a fast descent. You can
also blow into the microphone for a quick boost. There are two places that
you can paraglide. You can do the first in the Highlands once that is unlocked
and once more in the Mountains after that is unlocked as well.

While you are paragliding, you should collect all the jewels that you can. 
This will give you extra points of course. Also, don't hit the birds while
you are paragliding around because they will make you descend, which is not
a good thing. The Start button will act as your pause of course. 

You should stay on the top as much as you can because if the wind throws a 
massive descent on you, you don't have to use quick reactions to survive. You
will need 6500 points to achieve the bronze medal. 

[9.02] Skydiving

Skydiving is basically falling down from the sky, catching jewels and
getting to the base as fast as you can. It costs you a hefty §200 paid to 
Martin to Skydive.

Basically, you parachute down, using the Left and Right arrow key to move
left and right across the screen. You can use the Arrow Keys and A to dance
around, or perform acrobatics and this will earn you points. Clouds will
act as breaks as well, so don't run into them.

Anyway, to proceed with the game, you need to get to the base as fast as you
can to earn some points. However, the faster you do it, the more points you
seem to earn, but in reality, it doesn't earn you that many points. The 
next set of points comes from the jewels collected. Each jewel is worth 100
points so you really need to collect all of them to make some money. However,
the most points can be made from collecting the combos. This is basically
collecting three jewels of the same colour in a row. This gives more incentive
to watch the jewels and collect them.

[10.01] Table Games

There are several games that you can play. Hawk is the host of the table game,
"Dodge the Thief" This is a card that is simple to understand. You have a 7
card hand. There are six numbers on the table. You aim to get as many of the
numbered cards in your hand on the right square on the table. The reason for
7 cards and not six is because one of the cards is a thief. Your goal is to 
isolate him as the thief is not wanted. There will also be a flashing number
on the table. If you get the number right on that square, your bet is doubled
but it will cost you. That means, double points. This game is quite hard due
to the fact that you have no real clue on what card each of them are. The
winnings are as follows.

3 Cards Correct = 3X Bet
4 Cards Correct = 10X Bet
5 Cards Correct = 30X Bet
6 Cards Correct = 50X Bet

The second table game is hosted by Emma. The game here is Tic Tac Trump. 
There will be nine cards laid out in a 3 by 3 format. Your aim here is to 
get a single number in a row. This is already pre-determined from the start
so really, it is luck. On the second card you flip over, you have the choice
of doubling your bet. Your Bingos will basically be three in a row, no matter
if it is horizontally, vertically or diagonally. As long as you have three
in a row in that manner, you will get double your bet. For extra bingos, you
will get in return, your bet X (2 + Extra Bingos). Therefore, it is in your
best interest to bet when you feel that the first two cards are holding 
something special.

After a day, the amount you can bet will be increased, and this will continue
till you reach the limit of betting 50 coins in a single go. This is provided
you play every single day at the casino though. 

[10.02] The Slot Machine

There are also slot machines that you can play. All of them are "Exactly 21"
Your goal here to get your cards to total up to 21 exactly. The more cards 
you use will make sure that you have more money. However, if you bust the
number 21, you will lose all the coins that you have betted. So, the more
cards under 21, the better. If you get 21 exactly, you will get a Blackjack
Bonus, which basically doubles your winnings. The highest number will be 
six so if you are on or below 15, by all means, hit. The highest you can bet
is 10 though. This will slowly increase and it will increase to a maximum bet
of 30, and this in turn will increase until you can bet up to 50 coins in a 
single go.

The strategy for this is that there are 6 cards, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. This is
like Blackjack, where you want to get as close to 21 as you can without going
over it. If you get exactly 21, you get a bonus of 100 coins. The plan is,
if you have a total below 15, you have to, by all beens, hit and get another
card. If you get a total of 16, there will be a 1 in 6 risk that you can go
over your total and bust. From 17, the odds increase to 1 out of 3 that you
will bust. At 18, half a chance, 19, 2 in 3 chance and at 20, there is a 5 in
6 chance that you will bust if you decide to get another card. I would say
that as long as you are below 17, it is in your favour to get another card
rather than play it safe. After 17, I suggest that you stay.

This is the fastest game in which you can make some money. As long as you 
don't quit the game, and you have the 50 coin bet, you can make some 
serious money from this slot machine. A casino where you can win, I like
those odds.

And before I forget, these are the payouts for the game.
5 Cards under 21 = 1X Bet
6 Cards under 21 = 2X Bet
7 Cards under 21 = 5X Bet
8 Cards under 21 = 10X Bet
9 Cards under 21 = 20X Bet
10 Cards under 21 = 50X Bet

[11.01] Designing Clothes

This game is accessed when you cheer Tyler up. Anyway, he will explain that
designing clothes is a colour coded affair. There is a colour code that you
have to follow.

Blue    =  Front
White   =  Back
Green   =  Left Arm
Yellow  =  Right Arm
Pink    =  Palm

This is basically playing around with paint on the computer. Basically,
you can colour clothes, have prints on them, draw on them, and they are your

[11.02] Designing Furniture

This is accessed after you provide some inspiration for Sophie. With this, you
can make some designs. These designs will form the basis of a type of 
furniture you want to make. The type of furniture you want will alter the 

Chest  = §700
Closet = §1000
Bed    = §900
Chair  = §500
Sofa   = §600
Table  = §700

You can only have 6 pieces of custom furniture however. 

[11.03] Essence of the ?

There are four difference essences that you can use while you design your
furniture. When you go to Sophie and choose the option to make the furnitre,
you have the choice to use a pattern you have make, via the make pattern 
option, or make furniture, and select the essence there.

The Essences are the easiest way to design good looking furniture without the
work of design. In summary, the Essences are pre-made patterns of a certain
theme. Basically, it is custom furniture that looks good. There are 4 
different essences, and they can be obtained in four seperate ways, obviously.

Essence of the Ball
The Essence of the Ball is a pattern with a red Racquetball Racquet and a 
Yellow Ball floating above a green background. The Essence of the Ball is
obtained once you obtain the Gold Medal in the Racquetball Rally event.

Essence of the Sea
The Essence of the Sea is a pattern with sailing vessels, anchors and some
ocean waves on a blue background. This Essence of the Sea is obtained after
you Scuba Dive for a while and Nicki presents an opportunity for a Whale
Watch event. Take it and you will receive the Essence of the Sea at the end
of the event.

Essence of the Forest
The Essence of the Forest is a pattern with three different trees on a grass
green background. This Essence is obtained when you make Sophie happy with
the furfilled forest. 

Essence of the Flower
The Essence of the Flower is a pattern consisting of yellow, red and purple
flowers on a yellow background. This Essence is obtained when you achieve a 
Gold Medal in making a Hard Lei.

[12.01] Dowsing

After you have unlocked this from Tracy, you will now be able to go digging 
for some gemstone ore. Basically, the instructions are the same. You hire the
shovel for §50 and you have 3 minutes to dig as much as you can. You use the
double tap function to use the radar for more ore, whilst looking for ! marks
that indicate there is ore to be dug up. Anyway, when you dig things up, there
are 3 general types of ore. Blue ore is worth the least and therefore, the 
least valuable in terms of points. Red ore averages somewhere in the middle 
while Green ore is worth the most. The most valuable however, is a light blue
ore, which is worth at least double than green ore. 

You can also dig up valuable §§§ as well, as well as a clock, which basically
gives you another 30 seconds to dig up more ore. The rule of thumb here is 
that the deeper the ore is located, ie, the higher number the depth is, the
more it will be worth. The depth can range from a petty amount of 2 to a 
large amount of 8.

After a while of dowsing, Tracy will decide to let you have a bigger shovel,
and this of course, is going to charge you more. In fact, the rental fee has
been doubled to §100 for using the big shovel. But, the big shovel, while
you cannot kill other people with it, will allow you to dig faster, which 
might be handy if you are digging items at depths of 8 and takes a fair amount
of time to get up. 

[13.01] Using Sparkles

During the course of the game, as I, and many other readers for that matter,
noticed that during the night, whilst your character is outside, there will
be little sparkles what are the results of shooting stars that have crashed
and landed. There are special items that can only be gathered in this manner
so it is relatively worthwhile to go collect these sparkles.

These sparkles are indicated, as mentioned before, while they are outside
and during the night. It will basically be a twinkling star over the ground
and you can head up to it and press A in order to collect the sparkle. These
can be collected in all areas, and that includes the Town, Port, Forest,
Mountain, Highlands and the Entertainment Area as well.

There are specific items that can be gathered in each area as well.

In the Town area, you can gather the exclusive Star Wall as well as the Starry
Key furniture items. In this area, you can also collect randomly sized leis,
whether it be small, regular or large as well as any type of Cake that 
Charlie sells, or has yet to sell due to his experiments.

In the Port Area, you can gather the exclusive Sea Floor and the Sea Wall
items for your home. Since the Port Area has a Sea theme around it, the
other sparkles will basically be any other items that can be caught via 
fishing. This means that ANY type of fish can be up for grabs, including
the rarer fish, and also the junk that you can catch such as the plugs and
the crayfish.

In the Forest Area, you can gather the exclusive Forest Wall and the Forest
Floor room items for your abode. Since the Forest has more of a vibe for
plants, the sparkles here will basically be any type of potted plant for 
your home, as long as it does not bear any flowers.

In the Highlands Area, you can gather the exclusive Sky Wall and the Cloud
Floor for your house. Like the forest, it has a more vegetation type feel
and unlike the Forest, it will give you any type of pot plant that does
bear flowers.

In the Mountain Area, you can gather the exclusive Rocky Wall and the Rock
Floor for your home. Since there is a more earth based feel, the sparkles
here will contain every type of gem available, any type of frog available
and the Garden Stone. Pearls will be available as well, even though it is
impossible for Pearls to grow in rocks, but I guess whatever floats the
wacky designer's boat.

In the Entertainment Area, you can gather the exclusive Disco Wall and the
Disco Floor. Instead of items here, you can gather larger sums of § than 

All sparkles have the chance to instead contain random amounts of §§§ 
ranging from small amounts such as §10 to higher amounts surpassing §300.
The Entertainment area has a higher chance of containing higher amounts
of money, but it is still random.

[14.01] Gold Stars

Gold Stars is basically the same as obtaining a villager pic from Animal
Crossing. It is obtained when you achieve the maximum friendship level with
a villager possible through completing several tasks and meeting several
requirements. It is seen when you access the Villager screen from the X
button and by selecting one of the villagers. And if you have the Gold Star,
it will show. Besides that, what does it do? Absolutely nothing. Doesn't even
give you any HRA points.

Most Sims can give you their Gold Star if you either talk to them on a regular
basis, or talking to them regularly. Sims that run stores will have their gold
star available by conducting business with them on a regular basis as well, 
hence being a good customer. Your friendless meter is measured on the Smiley
Face on the bottom right hand side of the Sim's portrait.

Emma's Gold Star is obtained by increasing the bet size of the table she works
on in the Casino to 50 coins.

Hawk's Gold Star is obtained by increasing the bet size of the table she works
on in the Casino to 50 coins.

Marie's Gold Star is obtained by placing all the decorations on the highlands
area. Foster's Gold Star is obtained by placing all decorations on the 
Forest Area as well as having a natural balance and feeding the animals.
Tracy's Gold Star is obtained via continued use of her Paragliding facilities.
Martin's Gold Star is obtained via continued use of his Skydiving facilities.

Joseph's Gold Star is obtained by continuiously deliverying fish to him.

Olivia's, Sophie's, Charlie's, Ashley's Gold Star is obtained via 
continued purchases at their stores. Tyler's is obtained after scoring well
with Elizabeth's fashion reviews. Conversely, Elizabeth's is obtained after
scoring well on all the fashion reviews.

Olivia's Gold Star is obtained in her fifth restock where she hides behind
a blue surfboard. By finding her, she says that because you were always there
for her, she decided to hide on her own. Find her and be rewarded.

Tim's Gold Star is obtained by improved Racketball skills and continued 
interaction with him while Helen's Gold Star is done by improving the down
and interaction.

Nicki's Gold Star is obtained after you have obtained Scuba Diving and giving
presents as a result of her unhappiness. Well, the presents have to be cakes
from Charlie's cake store. You need to give her 5 cakes in succession in
order to make her happy, and award you a Gold Star.

Ewan's unhappiness will be encountered when you talk to him during his 
patrols. He will become depressed and you will need to visit him at his house 
and talk to him. You first need to converse with him, and need to be 
successful with all interactions. You want to encourage, converse and listen 
to him to make it work. Then, you need to give him a gift to cheer him up
somewhat. Give up for now, and then wait for the next night and give him 
another gift, more on the next night if need be and he will give you a Gold 

[15.01] Fashion Reviews

Elizabeth will set up fashion reviews every now and then and judge you on
the way you look. This information can be gathered outside the clothes shop
in the Entertainment area by looking at the sign. This will tell you the
location and the day at which Elizabeth will hold the reviews. Note that
the day will include the morning, afternoon and evening, but not the night.

The fashion review is done by judging what your Sim is wearing and is 
modeling for Elizabeth to see. Therefore, to win, it is imperative that you
dress up the way I tell you to. If you win, you get a prize, if you lose, you
get nothing.

For reviews in the Entertainment Area, Elizabeth suggests that you wear 
something showy in this area. In translation, you need to wear pants that are
red in colour and a top that has a silver colour, or possibly a gold colour
with a tint of blue.

For reviews in the Forest Area, Elizabeth suggests that you wear a wilder
colour in the Forest area. This translates to you having to wear brown 
pants on your Sim as well as a Brown top, or even a Green top if you dare.

For reviews in the Town Area, Elizabeth suggests that you wear something
more passionate in this area. Therefore, in this area, you need to wear some
blue pants and some black shirt, or a black shirt with a tinge of red in 
the shirt.

For reviews in the Port Area, Elizabeth suggests that you wear something
cooler in colour. This basically means that you wear some light blue pants
in this area as well as some blue shirts.

For reviews in the Mountain Area, Elizabeth suggests that you wear something
that would arouse one's curiosity. Ie, the translation for this means you
need to wear an orange shirt and a green colour pants.

And finally, for reviews in the Highlands area, Elizabeth suggests that you
wear something that is more elegant. This means again that you wear probably
soem black pants and some pink or purple shirts, better if they are mixed and

And the rewards are pretty good if you actually win. Elizabeth will award
you the following if you win.

* Origami Japanese Helmet
* Enlighted Masque
* Chinese Lion Masque
* Chinese Masque
* Lion Masque
* Wrestler's Masque

[16.01] Scuba Diving

After a while, your travels with Nicki will yield that she finds an abandoned
boat in the sea, and promptly takes it back and uses it to start a Scuba 
Diving business, charging §100 per go. 

While you are Scuba Diving, what you are basically doing is that you are 
taking pictures of fish, the closer the fish are to you and the clearer it is,
the better. In order to take pictures, you can use the L button to hold the
camera and the R button in order to snap the picture. Use the arrow keys to
change the direction in which you are facing. 

Basically, while you are swimming, you want to take photos of the fish when
they get close by. The closer the better. Sometimes, if they are right in 
front of you, you get even more points. All photos are judged out and they 
are not out of anything, so you have 9 shots to photograph, and 3 to choose
from out of your 9 to get the maximum amount of points.

While you are swimming, you might see a dot in the screen that changes colour.
This colour indicates that the next "wave" of fish is on their way and the old
wave has disappeared. Note that you cannot move direction, you can only change
the way you are facing, as Nicki is steering the boat. 

Hints on taking photos is that you should take photos on rare animals such
as the dolphin and the sharks when they get close to you. Although taking 
close up pictures of fish might earn points, good pictures of these animals
will earn you far more points that those small fish could never earn you. 
You can easily swipe up 80 points per picture of the rare animals. What
you should be aiming at is the head of the animal because this is obviously a
much better picture. 

On the easy level, the best points are gained by taking photos of the blue
dolphin that will come across the screen which can be seen just past the
half-way point. On the normal level, the best points are gained by taking
photos of the orange manta like creature, but the ultimate points are gained
by taking photos of the turtle near the end of the tour. The manta will also
be behind you when you first seen the turtle, and this means a lot of 
points for you.

In the hard course, it is indeed the hard course. There are three shots that
you should take. The first is in the very beginning as you descend, you 
will encounter a nice dolphin. As you approach the ravine in the middle, the
first animal you will encounter in a manta, so take a good shot, and right
after that, there will be a turtle, all heading to the left. The turtle is
your best shot for points. There is a fourth opportunity where there are
several fish in an cave on your ascent to the surface.
