Horse Isle Hints

These tips assume that you have been playing a while and know your way around.  They are are simple things I have discovered that can be surprisingly helpful.  Mixed in are a couple tips for beginners as well.

Finding Essence Stars

If you have a map, and are going to an Essence Star finding contest, when you arrive at the club town, set your map heading to the town.  That way, you always know exactly how far from the village you are, and can stay the right distance away.

Spacing Ranches

Similarly, you can use the same trick if you are trying to build a ranch near a club town, so you know when you are far enough away from it to begin homesteading.  If you are tapping maple, rubber, or dragon trees, save their location in your Travel destinations – including the time of day that you tapped the tree in the location name.  That way it reminds you to go back to the tree, tells you where, and reminds you when it’s been 24 hours.  You’ll be much less likely to lose your taps or forget to collect!

Ranch Size

If you want to be reminded about exactly where the borders of your ranch are located, build something (like a fence post) but don’t proceed with the construction.  Then you can walk around and see your borders.  When you are done looking, just cancel out and don’t build the object.

Easy Stone Gathering

The easiest way to collect stone and driftwood is to mount a horse, zoom out slightly, and ride slowly over a rocky beach while hitting E repeatedly.

Ornery Horses

When you need to make a horse breedable, feed it a bunch of coconuts then groom it.  That will fill groom and thirst and get mood and hunger up high enough to breed, while only having to do two actions instead of four.

Which Horses to Train

Only train horses you will be using to ride or compete with.  Breeding stock just uses inborn stats.

Rescuing Yourself

If you get stuck in a deep hole, you can usually jump out by pressing up arrow plus right arrow, and hitting the space bar as fast as you can.  Point your view up a bit so you can see when you are making progress.

Rescuing Yourself Part 2

When you are exploring and get near a rainforest biome, where holes are frequent and sometimes hard to avoid, set a Travel location.  That way you can warp out and not lose much progress.

Random Items

A cheap place to get rare though random items is in swamps, by searching pitcher plants.

Wishing Coins

If you get Wishing Coins, save them up for when you need energy or money – it’s no fun to have full energy and have the Wishing Coin refill your bars.

Dangerous Dig Locations

This last item is not a tip but a warning.  If you are writing a Club Quest and a step involves digging, make sure you do any final editing of that spot at your dig location because the game might reset that dig spot otherwise.  This is true even if you are only fixing a typo.
