If it's spring in Caledon, it must be time for another fiendishly difficult sim-wide hunt in Steam Sky City. I was the sole representative of Clan Jameson this year, as sister was out of town for much of the weekend.
I made a small donation to the RFL kiosk mid-city and received the Completely Useless Hints. (Though, despite Mrs. Volare's best efforts, I did find that a few of them provided some guidance. I'm sure this won't happen next year.)
This year's hunt object was a tiny clank, and many of the prizes were the parts to assemble one's very own tiny clank. Of course, that would require finding all the parts. Sadly, of the 26 objects, I managed to find nine, which I consider very respectable for a few hours' work. Please do not disillusion me.
I also took the opportunity to photograph some of the rebuilt city. To all visitors: watch your step, as several spots are still under construction, and a misstep could cause you to plummet to the water below. It's quite cold, I can assure you.
One of the new areas was Miss Magdalena Kamenev's Worlds' End, a cafe and salon. It's a cozy nook where Mr. Caligari's pub used to be, in the aft section.
The problem with hunts in Steam Sky City is that one occasionally runs into shady characters such as this one:
Beyond statues with glowing green eyes, one might just find zombies guarding one of those prizes. I arrived armed to shoot my way in, grab the prize, and shoot my way out. It's possible I killed a few more zombies than strictly necessary, but it lowers my blood pressure, so I considered it therapeutic.
