Ding 36 on my slinger. Funny story – I was actually dead at the time, having overpulled. My husband finished off the mob and bam, it’s spacious house time.
The Spacious Chua House Dilemma
Deciding which spacious house is quite difficult. The cassian would have been the easiest to decorate because the walls are flat. But chua pride prevailed and I now have a spacious chua house.
I have no idea what to do with it. I keep trying to put a second level in the tiny gerbil balls off the side, only to say to myself “This is a spacious house, moron. There is no need to try to cram things in every inch of available space.”
Apart from that, I have no idea what to do with all the space I have. I obviously need a kitchen, a bathroom (TOILET!), bedroom, living room, eating area… and then what? Library and science lab, sure, and I STILL HAVE SPACE!
I’m also not sure which of my rooms should be assigned to the gerbil balls. You’d think that a gerbil ball would be a great self-contained science lab – but would it be weird to walk into the main room and see SCIENCE? Shouldn’t an evil science lab be up in the attic or down in the basement (I don’t have a basement). The gerbil ball rooms are super-important because they can be separately remodeled from the rest of the house, so I should use that power wisely and put things in gerbil balls that might be difficult to otherwise design with internal walls.
Should I use a gerbil ball for the bathroom? Or would that make the bathroom even less private than it already is with the lack of ANY doors? Wouldn’t the bedroom have to be on the same level as the bathroom for middle of the night chua tinkles (these are the things I think about)? Maybe in a house that big, I’d need two bathrooms. Another toilet, I guess.
Thehusband objected to my plan to put the bathroom above the kitchen. Apparently that’s gross. He has a point. And that’s a point in favor of sequestering the bathroom in its own gerbil ball.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of ideas as to how other people decorate their chua houses. I’ve only seen one large chua house while I was visiting public houses and, I regret to inform you, did not make good use of the remodel feature. Some wallpaper should never be used, ever. Especially not in a gerbil ball.
Dear readers, I need your help. Do you know of any pictures/videos of decorated spacious chua houses? Or do you have brilliant ideas of what to put in all those empty spaces, gerbil balls included. (Hint: Do not want brothel, in case that was not completely obvious.)
I Love Lamp
The long story is not yet over. Whilst leveling architect, I noticed that there are some recipes in the tree that I don’t have. Apparently they can be bought with vouchers. I checked the ones I didn’t have (of the levels that I’m actually crafting), and most of them were tacky aurin crap. However, I could do a few more missions, grab the draken cauldron recipe (yuck), and then unlock a cassian lamp that thehusband is drooling over for his spacious cassian house. It’s the least I can do after he slaved over the auction house to get our 6 plat so we could each have a spacious house.
I did the Illium work order missions. It was annoying. I triumphantly purchased the Drakken cauldron and… could not learn it, because it requires level 25. Wait, what, the level requirement on my toilet was just a tooltip error but this shit is real. FINE.
My architect medic was, at that point, level 23.5. So seriously, one and a half levels, how hard can it be? I’m slowly cursing my way through soloing the medic because, dammit, LAMP. I’m at 24.4 now and it’s within reach – but I super-suck at Medic, and brave Sir Robin needs to bravely run away quite often.
And that’s the end. No, really.
