The last part of this walkthrough is right below this one, but here’s the link anyway. When we left off, Bart was busily disturbing everyone in the Brown house by setting off the flares he’d bought at Malaria Zone. Now, it’s back to the Sea Captain. (T’s note: This may all kick off while Bart is setting off flares in the Brown House, or it might start once he has finished – it’s probably best to keep the Sea Captain free after Bart has finished shopping at the Malaria Zone.)
1. Squidport Part 8: On surveying the handiwork of his men, the Sea Captain finds that he is not yet satisfied with their progress. He turns to Ned (who doesn’t need to be free) for advice…
Ned Flanders: Mr. Captain, sir? If I could offer a suggestion… a spruce or two could really, well, spruce things up!
Sea Captain: That’s it exactly, matey! You gay men always have the best design advice.
Ned Flanders: Oh, I’m not homosexual.
Sea Captain: Neither am I, wink-wink! Now, let’s get decorating, girlfriend!
For this task, you need to buy and place 1 Boardwalk Lamp Post, 3 Boardwalk Trees, and 5 Boardwalk Fences. They’re all available in your Decorations menu. The next task has a conversation between the Sea Captain and Lisa, but only the Sea Captain needs to be free.
2. The Old Man and the Sea Part 3: Too much work in the hot summer sun could be the reason for the Sea Captain starting to make less and less sense – or there could be other reasons…
Sea Captain: Because… un, at three bells as the crow flies…er… sextant…
Lisa: Is everything okay, Sea Captain?
Sea Captain: I’ve been running out of nautical jargon to pepper me conversation with. Which is hard because, ye know, it’s my thing.
Lisa: You could pick up jargon from classic tales of the sea like “Treasure Island” or “Moby Dick”.
Sea Captain: Brilliant! You’re like one of them, ye know, light… buildings that shine for boats and stuff when the weather is… not good… Ya’rr. I’d best get to readin’.
And that what he does – off he goes to the Library to spend the next 24 hours reading nautical literature. There’s another conversation with Lisa in the next task but, once again, she doesn’t need to be free.
3. Squidport Part 9: With his pirate language reinvigorated by his study of nautical literature, the Sea Captain is ready to continue rebuilding the Squidport…
Sea Captain: Maybe a cultural imports store.
Lisa: It’s so wonderful that you want to expose people to the crafts and cultures of distant peoples!
Sea Captain: N’arr, I jest want to fleece tourists the way the locals fleeced me everywhere I went. Maybe unload som tribal gee-gaws I got conned inta buying.
It’s time to build Just Rainsticks, which is now available for $52000 in your Buildings menu. It’s a 24-hour build, as usual, and you need to have at least 12 Boardwalk sections to fit it in. Keep Lisa free when the build finishes.
4. Just Rainsticks: It’s Lisa’s turn to get excited…
Bart: Lis, even you have to see those things are beyond lame. It’s a giant, slow rattle.
Lisa: Rainsticks were invented by the Aztecs who believed that by recreating the sound of rain, they could call forth rainstorms to water their crops. (T’s note: You can read about them and see what they look like here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainstick)
Bart: Well, they should have invented a stick that recreated the sound of them not being conquered by the Spanish.
Lisa: Wow. That was actually historically accurate.
Bart: I perk up in class when there’s ass-whoopings.
And off Lisa goes to Just Rainsticks to spend 4 hours browsing for (surprise, surprise) rainsticks.
The walkthrough will continue.
