The Phoenix Lights (1997)
The Phoenix Lights were a series of widely sighted unidentified flying objects or UFOs observed in the skies over the U.S. states of Arizona, Nevada, and the Mexican state of Sonora on March 13, 1997, witnessed by thousands of people between 19:30 and 22:30 MST, in a space of about 300 miles (480 km), from the Nevada line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson.
The United States Air Force claimed the second group of lights were flares dropped by A-10 Warthog aircraft that supposedly were on training exercises at the Barry Goldwater Range in southwest Arizona but an FOIA request from 2019 by John Greenewald revealed that the Air Force didn't drop any Flares nor had they any exercises at that point in time. Witnesses claim to have observed a huge carpenter's square-shaped UFO, containing five spherical lights or possibly light-emitting engines.

Governor Fife Symington called the object \"otherworldly\".

2016.08.25 05:55 rodeoaddict Rodeo Stampede - The Strategy Guide

So: About a month go a 6 year old girl showed me this silly game on their Ipad, and from humble beginnings and many hours wasted on an Iphone 5, my animal blimp is raking in the imaginary dollars.
I was hooked so much that after completing the Mountain animals, I reinstalled the game, started from scratch and completed it again. As a consequence, I now know lots of stuff about this addictive little game and thought I may as well share my new found wealth of knowledge, in the form a sort-of Strategy Guide. And I couldn't think of anywhere really to put it until I found this place. Being a strategy guide, of course there's gonna be spoilers, so if they're not your thing then you probably shouldn't be reading this!
Without further ado:
Rodeo Stampede: The Strategy Guide [Mountains inclusive]
1. Introduction
2. Getting Started
3. Zoo
4. Missions
5. Crates
6. Habitat Upgrades
7. Advertisements
8. The Animal List: What there is and How to Get Them
Area 1: The Savannah
Area 2: The Jungle
Area 3: The Mountains
Turns out there's a character limit on posts on Reddit, and so I can't really edit this one to include more stuff! ALl the goodies avaible from update 1.2 onwards will be covered in Strategy Guide II
1. Introduction Rodeo Stampede is a two-part game: Riding animals in a stampede, and managing a zoo. You make money through the game in a variety of ways and that allows you to unlock new animals to tame. Gotta unlock them all!
The start of this game is pretty straight forward and doesn't require much of a guide [just the ability to read, which if you don't have then this guide will be useless to you anyway!], but there are some things you can do whilst playing to maximise the lovely profit you get from your zeppelin menagerie.
2. Getting Started Select a character of your choice, and start taming things! The controls for a touchpad are pretty simple: hold down on the screen to steer, lift off to jump. You will need to be aiming at the thing you want to jump at before you jump: You cannot change direction in mid air. With a few exceptions, jumping to a new animal reduces the size of your lasso for the next jump, so it's a good idea to try and jump between animals as little as you can.
3. Zoo Screen And Zoo Economy After taming a buffalo and a zebra, you'll be shown the zoo screen! Here is where you will make the largest lump sums of money, and also where you can select which animal you would like to start running in a stampede with. To ride an animal, build a habitat first, then upgrade them to unlock new abilities.
You can change some game settings [as well as view missions] from the zoo screen by going to Menu [top left corner, then settings]. My advice for playing: Bump up the Steering Sensitivity to Maximum [far right], and get used to using your thumb at the bottom of the screen. You can make fine movements as well as sharp turns rolling around and moving your thumb, which comes in handy for the more difficult parts of the game [like boss missions]. It also helps to look AHEAD of your animal [near the top of the screen] instead of right in front of it, giving yourself a bit of time to dodge.
You make money by people visiting your zoo, and how much you make depends on how many animals you have, and how many 'families' show up to see your zoo [which seems to be somewhat random, but mainly dependant again on how many animals you have]. At the very start of the game, visits will be only minutes apart, but after a while of playing the visits will become less frequent, until they are only allowed once every 6 hours.
Opening the zoo automatically gives 10 gold per family. On top of that, each animal is worth 1 gold per family, with larger animals [elephants, rhinos and yaks] worth 2 gold per family. If an animal is upgraded to level 4, they'll be worth 50% more [so 1.5 rounded up, and 3 per large animal] per family. On top of that, you can elect to watch an advertisement [if available] to double your money again. More on that later.
So for e.g. : A zoo visit containing 2 buffalo, 2 zebras and 2 elephants will give 10 [opening] + 2 + 2 + 4 = 18 gold per family [so 10 families visiting will gives 18 x 10 = 180 gold]. If all 3 Animal Habitats are then upgraded to level 4, then together they'll be worth 10 + 3 + 3 + 6 = 22 gold per family [so again, with 10 families, 22 x 10 = 220 gold].
Occasionally visitors will drop the odd coin in your zoo too, and by tapping on them you can pick them up. They’re fun to spot and pick up, but don't really add to much once you get going, so it's not worth hanging out on the zoo screen for these. Better to make your non-visit money the fun way: riding stuff!
4. Missions Once you're in game riding stuff, you'll start receiving missions. This is the other main way to make money in the game, and becomes more important once you start having to wait 6 hours between visits [that's if you want to advance quickly and get all the stuff, if you're just playing casually then there's nothing wrong in waiting]. They are ranked between 1 and 3 stars for each zone, with 3 star missions being worth 3 times more than 1 star missions. As you progress to another area [for e.g. from the Savannah to the Jungle], a 1 star mission in the new area becomes the worth of a 3 star missions in the previous area.
1 star, Savannah: 50 gold.
2 star, Savannah: 100 gold.
3 star, Savannah and 1 star, Jungle: 150 gold.
2 Star, Jungle [and also 3 Star Savannah Missions once you start receiving these]: 300 gold.
3 Star Jungle and 1 Star, Mountains [and also 3 Star Savannah once you start receiving these]: 450 Gold.
2 Star Mountain [and all other missions once you start receiving these:] 900 gold.
3 Star Mountain [and all other missions once you start receiving these:] 1350 gold.
You can have up to 3 missions at a time, and after that choose to replace a particular mission. If a mission is too difficult or tedious at a particular time [for e.g. some missions might require an animal upgrade or particular animal that you don't have], it can be a good idea to replace it for another one. There's also nothing stopping you from completing more than one mission in the same run: the money just adds up. It’s possible to get over 4,000 gold in one run by completing 3 Mountain missions!
Finally, there are special Boss Missions for certain animals on their own unique maps. Boss Missions only become available by completing a certain amount of normal missions [hint: do lots of missions], and can be quite tricky. I advise upgrading some animals in their enclosures before attempting some of the Boss Missions: It makes them a lot easier to complete!
5. Crates There are bouncing wooden crates scattered around randomly, that give you money if you smash into them. Wooden crates are worth more as you progress through the areas: Around 6 coins in the Savannah, around 15 coins in the Jungle, and around 30 coins in the mountains. There are certain animals that, when upgraded [particularly Ostriches] that get multiplier bonuses for smashing crates. A 3x upgrade bonus turns a 6ish coin crate into a 20ish coin crate, a 15ish coin crate into a 50ish coin crate, and a 30ish coin crate into a 90ish coin crate.
6. Animal Habitat Upgrades Speaking of which: Upgrades! Upgrades are bought on the zoo screen using money after an enclosure has been built, up to 8 times. Most upgrades will just allow you to travel for longer on an animal before it gets angry, but some grant them special new abilities. The 4th upgrade for each animal raises their zoo revenue by 50%, and it's a good idea to get this for each new animal ASAP. All upgrades that actually effect the performance of an animal stop at level 6.
After that, the 7th upgrade for each animal gives you coins for performing certain actions. For example, an ostrich can get bonus coins for running while angry, a lion can get bonus coins for eating things, etc. The 8th upgrade for each animal doubles the chance of finding rare types of an animal, which is expensive but handy to get if there's a few animals missing from your collection. More on specific upgrades later.
7. Advertisements & How to Make Use of Them Rodeo Stampede is a free game, but you can quickly see where it makes most of its revenue: Advertising everyone else's games! I'll advise here: If you hate advertisements, Rodeo Stampede is probably not the game for you. If you can stand them, you can choose throughout the game to double the income of zoo visits or missions by watching a 30 second ad. You will need an internet connection to watch them, and they can eat up mobile data. Wifi is your friend!
At the start, the option to watch ads will come up quite frequently. Later in game, in order to be able to watch an ad to double zoo income, you will have to have a 'New Mission' or 'Replace Mission' ad available. You can check whether this has popped up by looking at the missions from the zoo screen, or by heading in game and running into a wall to make the missions pop up.
You may also choose to watch an ad in game, to either: a. Double the money attained on a run from crates/mission, whereby you got 30ish gold on the Savannah, 100 goldish in the Jungle, or 300 goldish in the Mountains. One mission should easily cover this. b. Continue a run IF you have ran beyond 1,000 metres and have not watched an ad for a couple of minutes. Sometimes this option is not available and you may have to pay money instead.
There is a TIMER on watching advertisements, and if they’ve been watched recently, then the option to watch one and double money may not appear. Here’s an easy way to check whether one is available: Run an animal beyond 1,000 metres [easiest with a fast animal like an Ostrich], then crash it. If the 'Continue?' ad play button is available, AND the 'New Mission' or 'Replace Mission' button is available, then you should get the option to watch an ad to double your money the next time you do a mission.
Hint: If you're on an iPhone or Ipad, hit your main button when an ad starts playing to return to the main phone menu, then click on the Stampede app again. Chances are the ad will be skipped!!!!
8. The Animal List: What there is and How to Get Them There's lots of animals in game to catch, with lots of different abilities! You're allowed 6 of each animal, and there's a 7th buffalo called the Cash Cow that you can purchase with 'real' money [BOOOOOO!] to double the income of zoo visits. You can also purchase in game coins with 'real' money, and purchase rare animals on 'zoo transfers' through a little man who occasionally appears on the top left of the zoo screen. In the end, all spending real money does is save playing time, which I personally think is a bit pointless in a free game with no definitive ending, and takes the fun out of it a bit. Personal opinion only of course.
Here's a basic outline of what's out there to catch. All rare animals are found simply by running a long way and finding them, with secret/boss animal exceptions described below. If a particular rare animal is proving difficult to find [the H.R Tiger comes to mind, which seems to have lots of spawning theories surrounding it but I'm pretty sure it's just luck], the 8th level upgrade [the last one available] doubles the chance of rare animals spawning.
Obstacles: But before that: Obstacles! There's basically 3 types: Shrubs [small little green plants], Trees and Rocks. Any animal can run over shrubs, some animals can smash trees, and only a select number can smash rocks, usually once they're been upgraded. Rocks and Trees vary in height, meaning some are harder to jump over than others.
AREA 1: The Savannah. Pretty sparse, not much water [Water generally slows animals down, with a few exceptions]. Not many obstacles to start, and very large [unsmashable] rocks don't start appearing until around 1,000 metres. Beyond 2,000 metres there are plenty of obstacles and bottle necks to watch out for. The map changes slightly after each expansion, and by Savannah 5 there's substantially more trees beyond 2,000 metres.
Buffalo: Appears mainly at start of the run. Speeds up and bucks when it gets angry.
  1. Buffalo move towards players lasso whilst they’re in mid air.
  2. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  3. Landing on a buffalo makes it briefly charge forward and smash everything,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Landing charge 2x longer,
  6. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  7. Bonus coins whilst bucking [1 per buck],
  8. Twice as many rare buffalo in stampede.
Rare: Forest Buffalo, Water Buffalo, Bison, Kerfuffle'o. The secret Diabuffalo is found by riding a bucking buffalo for 750 metres, and so can be obtained almost at the start of the game! There is also the Cash Cow, who can be purchased with real money from the game store. Pfff.
Zebra: Can appear at start of run, more common beyond 1,000 metres. Speeds up and bucks when it gets angry.
  1. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  2. Bucks from Zebra push other animals away,
  3. Landing on a Zebra doesn’t reduce lasso size. Makes Zebra hopping handy for long runs!
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Zebras buck less violently,
  6. Zebras move towards player’s lasso whilst they’re in mid air,
  7. Bonus coins whilst bucking [1 per buck],
  8. Twice as many rare zebras in stampede.
Rare: Brazeb, Candicorn, Punky Zebra, Elektro Zebra. The secret Trojan Zebra is found by riding 7 different Savannah animals [not skins of animals] in a row, and so cannot be found until all the Savannah areas have been unlocked. I recommend starting on either an elephant or vulture to achieve this, ending on a giraffe or lion once past 1,000 metres. E.g. Elephant -> Buffalo -> Zebra -> Vulture -> Ostrich -> Giraffe -> Lion ---> Trojan Zebra.
Elephant: Appears rarely throughout run. Barges its way through smaller animals and trees, throws the player off when it's angry.
  1. Twice as many elephants in stampede,
  2. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  3. Can smash rocks,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Can smash other elephants,
  6. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  7. Bonus coins for smashing things [2 per object],
  8. Twice as many rare elephants in stampede.
Rare: Mammoth, Earl of Phant, Tootyphant, Psychadelephant. There is a boss animal, the Skelephant, whom is usually the last boss animal the player comes across in the Savannah as the missions involves lions [who aren’t unlocked until Savannah 5]. Eat your way to Skelephant, then just jump on. I recommend having lions and elephants upgraded before attempting this mission.
Ostrich: Appears throughout run on Savannah 2. Speeds up drastically when it gets angry.
  1. Three times as many ostriches in stampede.
  2. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  3. Crates give 3x more money. Best upgrade ever,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Angry ostriches throw the player clear if they crash,
  6. Longer jumps,
  7. Bonus coins whilst running at high speed [1 every 2 seconds],
  8. Twice as many rare ostriches in the stampede.
A very good animal to upgrade and master, and my 2nd favourite animal behind the Moose. A fully upgraded [level 7] Ostrich can quickly make their way up the field past the 1000m mark, where the interesting animals usually hang and missions are easier to complete; all the while getting lots of money doing it just by running there and smashing crates! This is a very good run-starting animal, and I used it to start almost every stampede run [bar ones where I was competing missions that needed other animals like for e.g. ride 3 elephants in a row] until the Moose was available. I recommend rushing this animal to level 3 ASAP [crates become worth 20ish instead of 6 or 7 with the Level 3 upgrade], and then focusing on getting this animal to level 7 after all other available enclosures are level 4.
Rare: Celebirdy, Ostrich of Hearts, Glam Rockstrich, Ostri Chevalier. There is a boss Ostrich, the Bosstrich, who is most likely the first boss animal the player will come across. He’s easy enough to catch, just don’t run into anything!
Giraffe: Appears after 1,000 metres on Savannah 3. Can smash trees, and has the longest jump and largest lasso of any animal. Throws the player off when it's angry.
  1. Three times more giraffes in stampede,
  2. 20% bigger lasso whilst jumping from a giraffe,
  3. Can survive a crash with an animal [NOT an elephant], then stumble and recover after 5 seconds,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Longer jumps,
  6. Another 20% bigger lasso whilst jumping from a giraffe,
  7. Bonus coins whilst being thrown from a giraffe in mid air [1 every 10 metres or so],
  8. Twice as many rare giraffes in stampede.
Rare: Girraferty, Taco Jirafa, Highballer, Giraxxus. There is a boss giraffe, the UFG, who is usually the 2nd boss animal the player comes across. To get it, jump from girrafe to giraffe through the gaps in the rock faces. It may help to have some giraffe upgrades before attempting this. Try not to headbutt any rock faces.
Vulture: Appears throughout run on Savannah 4, sitting still atop rocks. Flies over everybody, and starts swooping when it's angry.
  1. Twice as many vultures in stampede,
  2. Vultures can now be found on smaller rocks [not just big ones],
  3. Crates give 5x more money. Great in theory, though actually hitting a crate on a vulture is tricky,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Swooping vultures fly steady for longer just after becoming angry,
  6. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  7. Bonus coins whilst swooping [1 per swoop],
  8. Twice as many rare vulture in stampede.
Rare: Egyptian Vulture, Viva Las Vulture, Vulture Capitalist, Pop Vulture. The [not so] secret Vulture-On sits atop several large rocks in the centre of the run beyond 2,000 metres, and is best accessed by being thrown off of a giraffe.
Lion: Appears after 1,000 metres on Savannah 5. Eats other animals [not all to start] to stay riding for longer, slows down when angry and eventually stops to snack on the player.
  1. Three times as many lions in stampede,
  2. Eating animals keeps lions happy for longer,
  3. Lions can eat other lions,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Lions can eat anything,
  6. Eating animals keeps lions happy for even longer,
  7. Bonus coins for eating animals [1 for just about every animal],
  8. Twice as many rare lions in stampede.
Once upgraded, this is IMO the best animal to complete long distance Savannah runs on past 2,000 metres, as it does not have to worry about other animals in its way. Just watch out for trees and rocks.
Rare: Dande Lion, Sabretooth Lion, Gryphon, Cryin' Lion. The secret Le' Ion Chef is found by eating 30 animals on a lion without jumping. I wouldn't really bother trying to attempt this until you have lions upgraded to level 6.
AREA 2: The Jungle. Generally narrow, with lots of water. Opens up a bit between 1,000 and 2,000 metres, before becoming narrow and windy after 2,000 metres with lots of small waterholes. On Jungle 5, some large waterholes appear beyond 2,000 metres.
Crates are worth lots more in this area than the Savannah [up to 50+ on an Ostrich], so it's worth trying to finish up all the Savannah missions and get into the Jungle ASAP! Ostrich is again a great animal to start with [which you should hopefully be good at steering by now], and with practice can weave its way through the stampede into more open ground past 1,000 metres. On a lucky run with 5 crates, there's around 250 gold to be made on an Ostrich in the Jungle, which at the beginning is more than you'd get for doing a mission!
Speaking of missions: 2 Star and 3 Star Missions are unlocked simply by completing lots of 1 star missions, and higher level missions mean more money coming in. It is a better long term strategy to focus on completing missions and upgrading the habitats of the FIRST 3 ANIMALS to at least LEVEL 4, BEFORE trying to upgrade the Jungle Area to level 2. It means the start's a bit boring with not many interesting animals around, but it results in getting higher level missions as quickly as possible [and so more money], which are easier to complete on upgraded animals. A bit of work early can make a lot more money later on!
To start with, the only animal with the ability to smash other animals is the Gorilla, with the Hippo available soon after [Jungle 2]. These two animals require quite a few upgrades to get going, so it might be worth replacing the more difficult smash missions until Rhinos [Jungle 3] are available. Jump missions can also be a pain, and are also replaceable. To replace a mission, simply have 3 missions available, and then the ‘New Mission’ advertisement option will instead become a ‘Replace Mission’ option. There is no loss for replacing missions: just the time it takes for another advertisement to become available [usually a few minutes].
Boar: Appears commonly throughout run. Speeds up and bucks when it gets angry.
  1. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  2. Boars ride faster through water,
  3. Angry boars accelerate slower,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Boars move towards players lasso whilst they’re in mid air,
  6. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  7. Bonus coins whilst bucking [1 per buck],
  8. Twice as many rare boars in stampede.
Rare: Indian Boar, Borc, Boaring, Beautiful Boar. There's also a Boss Boar, the Hog Rider. This mission is essentially a lot of tricky dodging, followed by running in a straight line and trying not to crash once the Hog gets angry. Having the sensitivity on maximum helps to make sharp turns quickly. Another tip: If your thumb's in a bad position on the screen, use your other hand to PAUSE THE GAME [top right of screen], then move your thumb to a better spot and unpause it. This helps a LOT after doing the zig-zag dodges if you're stuck at the corner of the screen unable to turn in a particular direction.
Gorilla: Appears throughout run. Jumps over obstacles, slamming an area in front of itself upon landing. Has a long distance wide-lasso throw if the player jumps off of a gorilla in mid-air. Throws the player off when it gets angry.
  1. Three times more gorillas in stampede,
  2. Slams smash trees and rocks,
  3. Bigger slams,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  6. Very large lasso increase for mid-air jumps,
  7. Bonus coins for slamming things [1 per object OR animal],
  8. Twice as many rare gorillas in stampede.
Rare: Mountain Gorilla, Quarterback Gorilla, Guerilla, Lawrilla. There's also a Boss Gorilla, the Volcanorilla. This mission is one big obstacle course. Spiky rocks and alligators result in death, jumping from trees does not. Again, bumping up the sensitivity is a good idea if you haven’t done so yet, as is pausing the game [see Hog Rider] if your thumb's in a bad spot. Happy jumping!
Alligator: Appears throughout run near water, and tries to eat you by running side-on! Eats other animals to stay riding for longer, slow on land but moves quickly through the water, slows down when angry and eventually stops to snack on the player.
  1. Rides faster through water,
  2. Alligators can eat other alligators,
  3. Whilst riding other animals, alligators are slower to attack you,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Eating other animals keeps alligators happy for longer,
  6. Alligators can eat anything,
  7. Bonus coins for eating stuff [1 for just about every animal],
  8. Twice as many rare alligators in stampede.
Rare: Frogator, Snorkadile, Bunny Gator, Bridezilla. There's a secret Alligator, the Cockadoodile, whom is only found during Morning Hours [so I'm guessing 6 am to 12 pm, don't think it matters which timezone you're in]. I found mine a few metres from the start of a run, so they're not that hard to find if you're playing at that time.
Hippo: Appears beyond 1,000 metres in Jungle 2. Gains energy whilst in water and can charge other animals and trees, slows down as it exits the water and eventually stalls to a halt and squats its butt on the player.
  1. Three times more hippos in stampede,
  2. 30% longer energy after leaving the water,
  3. Longer charges after leaving water,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Starts the run charging,
  6. Charging hippos can smash rocks,
  7. Bonus coins for running in water [About 3 per second],
  8. Twice as many rare hippos in stampede.
A tricky animal to master, but a beauty in the Jungle beyond 2,000 metres, and my 3rd favourite animal behind the Ostrich. It can be ridden for long periods of time after the 2,000 metre mark with well-timed pond hopping, which becomes easier after Jungle 5 is accessed and small lakes start appearing.
Rare: Pygmy Hippo, Ballerina Hippo, Hip Hop Hippo, Hippiepotamus. There's a secret animal, the Platypotomus, who is found by riding for 30 seconds on the same Hippo. As Hippos require water to stay alive, this can be tricky and depends a lot on how much water you happen to find. To find one, I advise having Hippos upgraded to level 6, and then hitching a ride on one DEEP in the Jungle [say, 4,000 metres in] where the Hippo will have enough speed to dash between the ponds that are available. You'll most likely be moving fast by the time it appears, so don't miss it!
Rhino: Appears rarely throughout run in Jungle 3. The ultimate battering ram! Smashes things, and then SPEEDS UP AS IT SMASHES THINGS. Throws the player off when it's angry.
  1. Twice as many rhinos in stampede,
  2. Smashing things increases speed,
  3. Rhinos can smash rocks,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Rhinos are faster,
  6. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  7. Bonus coins whilst smashing things AND whilst jumping off of a rhino [5 per object, and then another 5 per 10 metres whilst jumping!],
  8. Twice as many rare rhinos in stampede.
Rare: Hawaii-no, Apple Pineo, Feline’o, Skynoceros. There's a secret Rhino, the Dhinocerous, who is found in a similar fashion to the Trojan Zebra: Ride 1 of each Jungle animal in a row. As such, this animal cannot be found until all the Jungle areas have been unlocked. I recommend starting out on a Rhino, as the other animals are pretty easy to find [and unlike vultures, Toucans come to you!].
Tiger: Appears beyond 1,000 metres in Jungle 4. Eats other animals, slows down when angry and eventually eats the player.
  1. Three times more tigers in stampede,
  2. Eating boars keeps tigers happy for longer,
  3. Tigers run faster through water,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Tigers run even faster,
  6. Eating animals keeps tigers happy for longer,
  7. Bonus coins for eating stuff [2 for just about every animal],
  8. Twice as many rare tigers in stampede.
Seriously, the biggest let down of an animal. A lion and an alligator can be upgraded to eat a conga line of elephants or rhinos, and are both smaller than a tiger. Meanwhile, a tiger CANNOT EVEN EAT ANOTHER FRIGGIN TIGER, let alone a hippo or a rhino. I suppose they make up for this with their speed and an ample supply of boar, gorilla and alligator to eat, but it's easier in the late Jungle to just jump on a hippo and ride the aqua-charge express into the sunset.
Rare: Liger, Crouching Tiger, White Tiger, H.R Tiger [no, there's nothing special you have to do to find this animal other than running]. There’s also a boss tiger, the Tiger Lily, who is usually that last boss encountered in the Jungle. To catch this animal, you’re required to do some serious acrobatics on gorillas to catch up to it, so I highly recommend having Gorillas upgraded to level 6 before attempting this. Jumping over water and mid-air jumps are key, and there’s the occasional Alligator that may be of use. If you happen to overtake the Tiger Lily, simply run into a pond and let it overtake you, then resume chasing it. Once you're on the Tiger Lily, eat everything you can see, and don't crash. The mission is infinitely long, so be patient. Jump when it’s just right!
Toucan: Appears throughout run in Jungle 5 randomly out of nowhere, to annoyingly hover above the player for a few seconds. Flies over everybody, and starts swooping when it gets angry.
  1. Three times more toucans in stampede,
  2. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  3. Crates are worth 5x more money [though are tricky to hit],
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. 30% larger lasso jumping from a toucan,
  6. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  7. Bonus coins whilst swooping [5 per swoop],
  8. Twice as many rare toucans in stampede.
Rare: Hornbill, Bluecan, Moocan, Brewcan. There is a secret toucan, the Threecan, whom is found by landing a 100m jump on a toucan. Now: a jump from a fully accelerated toucan [just before it gets angry and starts swooping] is about 95m, so you’re essentially required to do a giant leap of faith from a toucan and pull yourself onto the BACK of an animal, just before hitting the ground. This is most easily accomplished, ironically, near the start of a run, where there’s plenty of animals to land on. Be prepared to watch your character perform many epic faceplants before landing that lucky jump.
AREA 3: The Mountains. You can fall off cliffs now! Open and full of life to start, generally getting narrower as the level progresses before getting windy and obstacle ridden beyond 2,000 metres, with some nasty S bends and cliffs to fall off [though thankfully not as ridiculous after the latest game update!]. Some nasty bottlenecks start appearing after Mountains 3, which in addition to everything else makes the Mountains a difficult area to run for a long time on 1 particular animal.
Once again, crates are worth more in the Mountains [up to 100+ on an Ostrich now], so it's worth trying to start doing missions there once all the Jungle ones are finished up. Upgraded Wolves can also sprint fast and collect more money for crates [albeit they're a little slower]. The final animal, the Moose [my favourite] is even more adept at it than an Ostrich, being able to smash their way through the occasional obstacle or bottleneck of animals and still keep running!
Once again: High level missions = more money, and unlocking high level missions = doing lots of low level missions, which are easier to complete on upgraded animals. So: it is a better long term strategy to focus on completing missions and upgrading the habitats of the FIRST 3 ANIMALS to at least LEVEL 4, BEFORE trying to upgrade to Mountains 2. I’d even be tempted to upgrade Llamas to Level 6 before going to Mountains 2; there’s a lot of jumping to be done! Again, it makes for a boring start, but it means more money and less stress later on.
There is no rock or animal-smashing animal available until Mountains 3, when Yaks show up. Apart from missions involving smashing Llamas [there’s a lot at the start] or trees [Bears can smash trees], I recommend replacing smash missions until Mountains 3. All you’ll have otherwise is an Elephant or Rhino from the starting line. Additionally, some of the jump missions are next to impossible without upgrades, and even with them can be a pain, so feel free to replace some of these too!
Llama: Appears commonly throughout run. Has a long distance throw, and throws the player off when it gets angry. Similar to a giraffe, on a smaller scale.
  1. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  2. Longer Jumps,
  3. 20% bigger lasso whilst jumping from a Llama,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  6. Landing on a Llama doesn’t reduce lasso size. Handy for long runs!
  7. Bonus coins whilst jumping [2 every 10 metres or so],
  8. Twice as many rare llamas in stampede.
The most common animal in the Mountains, and quite tricky to hop between without upgrading [the lasso can get small rather fast], so IMO this should be the first animal that you upgrade in the Mountains.
Rare: Saltwater Llama, Pinata Llama, Elizabethan Llama, Butterfllama. There’s also a boss Llama, the Hyper Light Llama. In similar fashion to the UFG, the Hyper Light Llama is found by performing lots of large jumps, this time across clouds. The SHRUBS ON THE GROUND will point in the direction of the next island [one of the islands is not directly in front, be careful!]. I highly recommend having Llamas upgraded to level 6 before attempting this mission; the larger your lasso the better.
Goat: Appears throughout run, more commonly beyond 1,000 metres. Speeds up and buck-jumps when it gets angry, in the form of a small skip and a jump which can clear small rocks.
  1. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  2. Goats buck less violently,
  3. Bucking pushes other animals away,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Goats move towards player’s lasso whilst they’re in mid-air,
  6. Extra 1 second before getting angry
  7. Bonus coins whilst bucking [2 per buck],
  8. Twice as many rare goats in stampede.
Rare: Viking Goat, Aqua Goat, Go-Nut, Mk.II Stealth Goat.
There’s also a Boss Goat, the Two-nicorn. What a doozy. This mission requires a lot of patience, and a fair degree of luck, particular when navigating the narrow bends. The larger goat jump can just clear small obstacles if timed right [important for the diagonal walls of rocks], and some of the obstacles on the S bends can actually be passed on the very narrow INSIDE gap between them and the abyss. Make sure goats are upgraded to level 2, and try not to break anything. Occasionally the pause trick from the Hog Rider mission can work too. Good luck.
Bear: Appears rarely throughout run. Slow to start, speeds up to a moderate pace. Eats other animals to stay riding for longer, eventually slows down and stops to snack on the player. Think of it as a slow Lion that can smash trees.
  1. Three times as many bears in stampede,
  2. Bears are faster,
  3. Bears can eat other bears,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  6. Bears can eat anything,
  7. Bonus coins for eating stuff [2 for just about every animal],
  8. Twice as many rare bears in stampede.
Rare: Bear Chieftain, Honey Bear, Bearthday Cake, Beaver Bear. There’s a secret Bear, the SU-24 Bearoplane, who is found by riding an Eagle for 2,000 metres. Eagles don’t appear until Mountains 4, so you won’t be able to find it until then. Best to start as an Eagle from the beginning. Don’t miss it!
Wolf: Appears throughout run in Mountains 2. Speeds up drastically when it gets angry.
  1. Three times more wolves in stampede,
  2. Crates are worth 3x more money,
  3. Extra 2 second before getting angry,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Angry Wolves throw the player clear if they crash,
  6. Wolves move towards the player’s lasso whilst in mid-air,
  7. Bonus coins whilst running at high speed [2 every 2 seconds],
  8. Twice as many rare wolves in stampede.
The next sprinting animal after the ostrich! Doesn't 'quite' reach the top speed of an ostrich, nor has the jumping power, but will kindly move towards your lasso once upgraded. I still used ostriches over wolves most of the time, primarily because I had the bonus upgrade for bonus coins whilst running on the Ostrich, and getting the same upgrade on a wolf is pretty expensive.
Rare: Fire Wolf, Survivor Wolf, Big Bad Wolf, Jabberwolfy. There is a Boss Wolf, the One-Eyed Wolfbeard, who is found by running very fast through an obstacle course and not crashing. There aren’t really any upgrades that will help here. Just don’t crash!
Yak: Appears rarely throughout run in Mountains 3. A smashing animal, yay! Jumps up and down and smashes things, throws the player off when it gets angry.
  1. Twice as many yaks in stampede,
  2. Extra 2 seconds before getting angry,
  3. Yaks can smash rocks,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Longer jumps from yaks,
  6. Yaks are faster,
  7. Bonus coins for smashing things [5 per object],
  8. Twice as many rare yaks in stampede.
This thing wins the award for spazziest animal in Rodeo Stampede. Swipe your finger back and forth across the screen for maximum spazziness. If you're actually trying to seriously hit things with it, try and line yourself up beforehand so that you don't have to turn too much.
Rare: Skyunk, Abomidable Snow Yak, Gnarlyak Tree, Battle Yak. There’s a secret Yak, the Gearpunk Yak, who is found by smashing 10 animals on the same yak. You might get lucky and manage to do this without upgrading a yak, but it’s easier to accomplish on a level 6 yak that can spaz out faster. Don’t fall off a cliff.
Eagle: Appears throughout run in Mountains 4, sitting atop rocks, that are more often than not off of cliffs! Flies over everybody, starts swooping when it gets angry.
  1. Twice as many eagles in stampede,
  2. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  3. Swooping eagles fly steady for longer just after becoming angry,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. Crates are worth 5x more money,
  6. Extra 1 second before getting angry,
  7. Bonus coins whilst swooping [2 per swoop, which is less than an Toucan...],
  8. Twice as many rare eagles in stampede.
As eagles are more often than not hanging out over the cliff’s edge, it might be a good idea to actually start on or find an eagle, and then swoop out over the cliff edges to try and catch the rare ones. They can sometimes appear on rocks to the RIGHT of screen [which is impossible to see unless you fly over a right hand cliff edge] as well as left.
Rare: Knight Hawk, Eagleward Scissorwings, Count Batcula, Greater Eaglemoth. There is a secret Eagle, Robin Should, who DOES NOT APPEAR UNTIL MOUNTAINS 5, even though eagles appear at Mountains 4. He is found near the beginning, on the right or left of the stampede, on a perch about 50m from the cliff edge. While this Eagle appears on the right of the Stampede, it's much easier to catch on the left hand side. There is a LINE OF SHRUBS on the ground point towards it [similar to the Hyper Light Llama Mission], and launching yourself in that direction on a Llama should be enough to grab onto it.
Additionally, there's usually an Eagle perched south of it, very close to the cliff edge. Grabbing onto this Eagle and flying DIAGONALLY UP AND LEFT should be enough to spot Robin and grab on. Once you're on Robin, don't forget to fly back into the Stampede, or you'll end up crashing into a Mountain!!
Moose: Appears beyond 1,000 metres in Mountains 5. Speeds up drastically when it gets angry, and can charge into objects or animals once every 5 seconds!
  1. Three times as many moose in stampede,
  2. Longer jumps from moose,
  3. Crates are worth 3x more money,
  4. 50% extra zoo money,
  5. 10% bigger lasso whilst jumping from a moose,
  6. Landing on a moose doesn’t reduce lasso size,
  7. Bonus coins for smashing things [5 per object OR animal],
  8. Twice as many rare moose in stampede.
This is the final gem the mountains have to offer, and is a fitting replacement for the Ostrich as an animal that can quickly make it up the field collecting crate money along the way. Looking forward to seeing what I can scout out on this thing in the next area! [when it comes out]
Rare: Mossy Moose, Spruce Moose, Mesa Moose, Monstroose. There is a Secret Moose, the Dark Mousse, who is found by STARTING ON A NON-MOUNTAINS ANIMAL [e.g. an Ostrich], and THEN riding one of each of the 7 Mountains animals in a row. It's easiest if you try and ride a Yak, Bear and Eagle near the start, and finish with Goats or Moose beyond 1,000 metres.
Aaaand that’s it! Looking forward to seeing whatever Australia has to offer. Any questions or corrections, feel free to say so!

2016.05.16 21:41 Ellistann [TRIGGER WARNING: GUGGENHEIM] Canary's Cry

WALL O TEXT Incoming.
TL;DR: Have awesome theory that came to me watching Canary's Cry that might have saved my faith in CW's and Team Arrow's writers. Turns out they're a bunch of hacks that can't write their way out of a paper bag. Fuck this show.
I'm on like a 2ish week delay, so had to finally get something off my chest.
I had a small epiphany during Canary's Cry that left me speechless with how awesome they are going to make the rest of the season. That Laurel's death was a huge plot point that NEEDED to happen, and they can always steal Earth-2's Laurel if they want to keep Katie Cassady around in Arrow.
Let me paint the scene, imagine you don't know everything from the last few episodes:
Grave spoilers have been going on for a while, and everyone is frothing at the mouth. We see Katrina Law will be a part of the episode too, in addition you know that Uncle Guggie has been doing damage control saying the death was necessary. You read that he doesn't care about canon characters, and he wants to tell his story. You want to call bullshit, but at the same time, you still love the show. Like an abused spouse, you want to give them the benefit of the doubt.
You know that a Punky Brewster lookalike from Supernatural is going to be in the Black Canary Costume. OK, not really my style, but hey, maybe there's a good story here.
You start watching a mediocre Arrow episode but you're used to that by now. Then Oliver faces the new Black Canary , who has a personal beef with Oliver screaming 'You abandoned us...' and then disables him with the Canary's Cry, and then a commercial break happens.
You're confused, what the fuck just happened? I'm expecting some badass decay to happen since its been fucking Oliver up all season, but he wears freaking earplugs. He can't be this stupid. Why does the canary cry hurt him? You do your usual pause when shit gets too stupid to watch and start thinking.
OK, so he's hurt, but maybe that's just the lazy writer's way of showing that the new Canary is better than the old. Stupid writing, but OK, fine. But something else is nagging at you.
'You abandoned us in XXXX' was what she said. The location doesn't ring a bell. It was said onscreen 20 seconds ago but it doesn't seem important enough that the writers would spoon feed you its importance, so it must be something that will be a huge revelation to us later. It nags you. A flash of insight happens, now you've got a huge surge of hope.
Data Points:
Katrina Law is in episode.
Both of the previous Black Canary we know and love were trained by Nissa.
'You abandoned us.'
Uncle Guggie wants to tell his story, and that Katie Cassady's character was in the way of that.
HOLY SHIT UNCLE GUGGIE, I've found your endgame.
You're having a new League of Assassins being formed.
The line 'you abandoned us'... That's Oliver fucking up his requirements as the new demon's head. He handed the responsibility off twice; once to a man who used it to the wrong ends and so Oliver took the mantle back, only to hand it to someone who says's 'You're all fired go and do something else with you life' . You abandoned us at XXXX is the site of him killing Ra's, and the place is now named in the annals of the Leagues... That's some organic shit right there.
I know where you're going with this Uncle Guggie... Your new Black Canary is the mentee of Nissa Al Ghul. She is in town because 1. Oliver has been a bad steward of the league, and the fanatics that didn't go to Malcolm have now either gone to Nissa and received training to be the next Canary, 2. or the mentee has decided to become the next canary on her own. As Nissa's #2 she would know how much the Canary means to Nissa and decided to either play into the mantle of the Black Canary or is wearing the costume as a giant FU to both Nissa and Oliver.
Nissa is back to either show Oliver that her new League is a force for good, or she's playing the equivalent of COL Trautman to the new Canary's Rambo and she is trying to stop her killer mentee from violating the rules that her lover(Sara) and her late friend (Laurel) spent their life creating and shitting on the Black Canary's mantle.
Starting to get excited... this fits the CW to a T. Ok, nevermind excited, its getting to hype levels. CLEGANEBOWL vezuvas and dubstep are going off in my head and its all coming together. I've fully put on my CW writing team member hat, and am plotting out the rest of the season.
You get interpersonal drama ....
Felicity and Nissa get in a pissing match about who's truly the best Oliver wifu. Nissa obviously still thinks she's the wife of Oliver, and wouldn't it be a kick in the head to see Felicity being jealous? Going from walking away with her new legs to come crawling back when Nissa is an objectively better wife who supports her husband when he's low the same way that Oliver has done for her... Nissa and Oliver even have the grudging respect thing going with how Oliver handled the my Dad sold me into Martial Slavery, and both of them loved Sara. Nissa actually fits the Oliver's love interest better than Felicty if you ignore the hardcore lesbian thing...
Oliver gets to brood over his lack of responsibility and argue the rightness and wrongness of his actions by not becoming the Demon's Head. We see him take on the new girl, first maybe like Batman did Jason Todd, or maybe its closer to the dynamic of Damien Wayne and Batman...Either way we see if Oliver wants to let her keep the uniform of his old lovers or give her a new one.
Black Canary can have a bunch of rough edges that need to be sanded down by learning to work with the team. Maybe she has a killer instinct and tragic backstory as to how she became a member of the League of Assassins. Shit, this worked before with Sara, so why reinvent the wheel right? Maybe she's devoted to Oliver and will do whatever she needs to in order to be a member of Oliver's new League, which he calls 'Team Arrow' for some reason. Maybe we see her be like Cassandra Cain.
While I hate adding another person to the team and splitting screen time, maybe we go full CW on her character. Who would her love interest be? Short skinny brunette, sounds like Mr 'Political Operative' might have another superhero love interest fighting over his affections. Thea and her can fight over the operative either as superheroes, or as hot civilian women. Maybe we recycle the plot of Tobey Macguire's Spiderman and have the guy crush on the costume but not the woman. This is the CW, we don't want quality writing, we want the plot of a porno set in a superhero universe. Shit... Porn... that reminds me.
Sara and Nissa both played for the other team, maybe the new Canary does as well. And maybe she focuses on Thea; the sister of the Demon's Head, who is almost league herself as she was trained by the Magician. That would be a worthy mate if Nissa is off limits due to the marriage to Oliver... Probably too racy for the CW, but hey, it could happen. Maybe New Canary focuses on trying to break up Nissa's marriage, maybe she's trying to get Oliver hurt so she can have Nissa to herself.
Holy shit this is the best season of Arrow since Oliver got freaking stabbed. We've got so many possibilities.
Maybe the Black Canary is gonna have the mask taken away, maybe she'll become Cheshire or Artemis. Just watched Young Justice,I now understand why folks want that here on Arrow.
But hey, so far all we've focused on is the New Canary, what about Nissa? CW hasn't done anything to help her out except show that she's a tough lesbian yet somehow dutiful wife. How can we make her interesting?
What if this is a prelude to Nissa creating a new League of Canaries? Maybe she calls them 'Birds of Prey'? Maybe she takes a new name, as she doesn't want to be associated with her father anymore. She finds that her mother was Hindu and decides to become Shiva. She tempts Felicity away from Oliver after Oliver gets Curtis to be his new Overwatch. Felicity becomes even closer to her spirit animal, Barbra Gordon.
Maybe we see the League of Canaries start being a bad guy, after they seemed so much on the up and up. Like if Sara stops traveling through time and decides to settle down with Nissa, what happens to the league when Nissa is not around? We now see superheros that were friends become enemies. Arrow Civil War anyone? We can have Oliver vs Thea for Arrow opponents, Felicy vs Curtis as hacking opponents, Black Canary vs Nissa, and still retain Andy vs Diggle.
So all this hype is going through my head, and make myself a drink. Decide to play a drinking game. Sip whenever I have successfully called something. This should make the transistion from shitty writing to hype fest a lot easier.
I unpause. They immediately start talking about why the Canary's Cry hurts, okay throwaway line on why the earplugs don’t work. Take a sip and spit it out as they start talking about XXXX, and then they reveal that the new Black Canary is a FUCKING GYMNIST.
Well there goes my awesome theory. I adapt my drinking game to the Game of Thrones drinking game. Break out the whiskey and some ice cubes, lets at least enjoy an aspect of the train wreck that's gonna happen.
Finish the episode, disgusted with the writing that's been done for what used to be my favorite show.
How much do I like the show? I'll give you a hint, my son's name is Oliver...
I'm not going to quit like many have. I refused to quit Lost; this will become my new hate-watch show.
You're going to see other things coming like this from me, because there are some very good things and very bad things this show has had.
And I'm going to talk about them, frankly and without pulling punches. This may offend some folks, so like you're supposed to whenever you run into something that may offend people, I'm going to tag it as it should be...TRIGGER WARNING: GUGGENHEIM

2013.06.06 00:14 TheMonkeysBeard The SteamMonkey story. Chapter 1 complete, Chapter 2 (Coming soon)

So, ramblin time. This will be long and personal.
A few years back I started to vape. I was a pipe and cigar smoker who had been smoking either cigarettes or pipes/cigars since he was 12 years old. Quite a long record. The longest "break" I ever took was while I was in basic training and even then, at one point the Drill Sgt saw I was about to kill some one, took me to his office, gave me a cigarette and told me to chill for a few minutes then pretend I had been getting yelled at.
When I started vaping I was immediately hooked. Day 1, a 100 dollar cigalike kit, sucked. Found ECF on the internet, read, day 7 I had a Riva (ego clone) and a bunch of fancy juice from DFWVapors and TVR. Day 14 I bought a Reo, day 23 I bought a provari. In the first month I went from the cigalike to a provari and reo and a collection of fancy carto tanks from all over the place. Keep in mind, this is when the provari was 'new' and only came in gray. Carto tanks were 'new' and clearomizers looked like cartomizers but with plastic tubes instead of metal ones.
I loved my new hobby, it had everything I really loved. By my second month in I was building my own devices out of copper tubes from home depot and madvapes connectors. I started to voraciously absorb all data related to vaping I could get my hands on. I researched the chemical make up of e-liquid, PG/VG, flavorants, nicotine and what it really meant to your health. I started taking my existing hobbies and skillsets and applying them to modding and vaping in general. I started to study battery chemistry, electrical engineering, Ohms Law became my bedtime story. I bought a lathe just so I could make carto tank caps. I taught myself how to do electrolytic etching so I could make my copper mods look 'fun' and potentially make my own PCBs.
needless to say, I jumped headfirst into the deep end.
While this was going on, I was preaching the steam to everyone I met that smelled like an ashtray. I converted my entire family, my inlaws, random strangers, you name it. I started making little cards with a list of all the different vendors that had what I considered to be the 'best' shit to get started on for the right price.
I saw people get annoyed at the fact that they had to go to 3-4 different sites to really get what I was recommending and what I recommended continually changed as vaping progressed. At some point some one said "you really should just open a store and sell all the crap you think people should use." ...
hell yea!
But there was a problem... I'd gone through a divorce not that long ago and inherited all the debt from that relationship. I'd just drained pretty much all my money to pay things off. I had about 5k sitting around that I could 'spare'. So I started to research.
I started out with a store name... Redbeards Locker! Perfect... I've got a big red beard, I could use myself as a brand. I'd be the Colonel for the KFC of vaping! So I sat down one night and opened up Gimp2. I decided I was going to shoot for an icon style image. Something that looked like me with some steam punky goggles on. I drew up a logo, threw on some purple lensed goggles (purple lenses are a thing for me) and kept tryin to get the beard right. I sorta have big ears IRL and my wife cracked a joke about the ears on the icon being too small. So I made em way bigger... I looked at what I'd drawn and it looked an awful lot like a steampunk monkey... then it hit me STEAM MONKEY! I tweaked it a bit more, threw away all the random documents I'd written around "redbeards locker" and SteamMonkey was born. I registered a new website and registered the business.
Now, initially I had no plans to start with chinese products. I was going to take all the current stuff on the market, improve on it and launch with all american made products. I figured I could fund it as I go, use the 5k for prototyping and stuff and then just take a grass roots approach.
Holy shit was I wrong. I started seeing what prototyping cost and realized that 5k wasn't gonna get me anywhere near a single product let alone a full store. I was depressed, the monkey was probably not gonna happen. I was stubbornly opposed to selling chinese product. I wanted to build the american industry! One night while bitching about it my mother inlaw said "didn't you start this whole thing because you wanted to carry all the stuff you were recommending to people?" I said "Yes" and she responded... "Weren't you recommending chinese stuff?"...
I scowled at her and went back to the house and got on google to start what will be remembered as the least pleasant series of online events I've ever had to deal with... building my supply chain with china.
I spent months negotiating prices, talking about MOQs, running shit through google translate, hunting products. I purchased items from various vendors already online to test things I hadn't used to find the 'best' thing in each product category that i wanted to carry.
After months of horrible, horrible communication I finally nailed down my "launch" products. it was limited, I had very little I could put up and there were a lot of "sample" orders made so that i could have a decent variety of items at launch and not just look like some random mom and pop shop.
I placed my orders and I started marketing on ECF. I had a decent number of people there already that liked me so it helped with some word of mouth advertising, I got real active in the ECF IRC again and when I launched I sold out of almost everything I had in a couple of weeks. Now... that's not sayin much, I didn't have a lot ;) I managed to flip my orders, I doubled on almost everything and added a few new items.
Sales slowed down.... I got a little worried.
Then I found Reddit. I believe some of my first posts were in response to Slumberland hating on my mesh. We worked out our differences obviously and he's become one of my favorite folks on reddit.
Shortly after I found reddit, a few people bought from my store.. then... out of no where i found out I couldn't keep enough crap on the shelves to keep up with you people. I had a new problem, I was constantly out of stock. I was flipping my orders as fast as possible but I just couldn't keep up. That's lead me to where I'm at today...
I've constantly tried to update the store and follow what the people want and what I think is best for the people.
My business is built on a few very simple principles. Things I wont' compromise on.
  1. If, I, as a consumer, would be annoyed by something SteamMonkey does... don't do it.
  2. Never sell anything you wouldn't use yourself or recommend to some one you care about.
  3. Be transparent and communicate with your fellow vapers.
  4. Be a service to the community, not a store.
I've tried very hard to live by these rules with SteamMonkey and I think it's helped me succeed. I don't believe that the buyer should ever have to "beware" with me.
Sales have started to balance out. I still have stock issues with certain things but the Genesis 'trend' has started to die out and that was a large portion of my business. I'm not suffering so don't worry ;) I'm still not to a point where I can quit my day job and take on SteamMonkey full time yet but I feel close. I've got projects in the works, my own designs that may or may not succeed and I'll funnel them through the community to make them happen.
I've never, once, thought that I could do this on my own. A lot of you know that I run this business mostly solo, my wife helps out where she can but she's a very busy professional as well. But I'm far from alone in this business... you, my customers, friends, and peers are the deciding factor on whether or not I succeed. All I can do is my best and hope it's accepted and embraced by the community and based on that concept and my primary business principles I've decided the path for Chapter 2 of the SteamMonkey story.
Chapter 2 will come in a reply to this post.
