Purchasing a Gun
Owning a gun is an essential part in having the ability to hunt the animals of Canary National Park. Before getting started, be sure to visit Outdoor World in Alpine Falls to get started, otherwise you will only be able to fish at the Hunting Grounds.

When you've arrived, visit one of the sales clerks and they will guide you through the process of purchasing a weapon.

You may choose one of eight different weapons, which can be changed out at any time.

To view a weapon, execute the command :viewgun name - for example :viewgun MAC10

Do you like the gun you've got equipped? execute the :buy command, and 10,000 Duckets will be removed from your balance automatically. Should to choose to swap your gun at any time, you will be subject to the 10,000 Ducket fee again.

Hunting is fun- but first, you must own a gun! Visit Outdoor World in Alpine Falls to purchase your gun. Once owned, on the Hunting Grounds, execute the :arm command… then, double click on an animal to shoot it!

Amazing work and effort has been put into myBobba, I've come on and had a look at the farming and fishing (I didn't have enough duckets to try hunting). It sounds and looks amazing on the surface but I was personally disappointed.

I'm sure there's an absolute ton more to do on the hotel (I love all the games you've got!) but these are the things which personally interest me... so that's all I tried.

Farming
This went right over my head, I had no idea what I was doing. Do I just water the crops and get an achievement? Do the crops grow after I water the patch?
I tried collecting the berries and got 2 of each but had no idea what to do next. Where are the crops I collected?
I feel as thought this could be worked on massively even if it is only wired. It would be awesome to actually grow the crops by watering them, then harvesting them, then be able to sell them or even bake a pie or cake! (This is all possible with wired).

Fishing - This extremely lacklustre, and rather annoying (just keep clicking, just keep clicking). Double click the fishing rod, then double click a fish, get achievement.
Maybe add a mini game catching the fish, a possibility of it getting free. It would be awesome to have many different fish to catch, and again actually getting the fish if you catch it. You could make items to display them in cases or sell them.

But again, amazing work on myBobba, there has been an absolute ton of time spent on this and you can tell. Awesome hotel!

Funny you mention farming- it was wired about 2 years ago now, that is next thing to re-work (we just finished the Carnival re-work as well). At the time of making the farming simulation we did not have half the wired we have today so it can definitely be improved upon. Farming does come with instructions, there is an in-room command and a notice when you enter about it, but we've since added over 30 new wireds to help us up the production value of our creations. Unfortunately making crops 'grow' and such is one of those things that would use so much wired it'd affect the room performance with so many working parts going at once.


We do have plans, once the interior for Pendergrass Flea Market is done in Alpine Falls, to host a place to 'sell' your goods (fish, wheat, etc) as I have thoroughly thought through the process and believe thatd be something easy to make.

All instructions in future will be displayed as an alert like this:

Distractions & Diversions are mostly just click tasks to begin with. Throw some achievements in there, and some rewards, and you have a whole community of people engaged in your content. I've always wanted it to be more of an earn-your-way type of hotel so we will always be working to improve these things and make more!

While I like your suggestions, some of these just aren't actually possible with wired (I have been wiring for years, there are still limitations esp in Arc right now, and it wont matter how much custom wired you have), and others would use so much Wired it'd affect performance in the room itself, though Im not opposed to adding a chance to lose a fish, that sounds like a good idea actually. We also plan to add more fishing spots along some water ways once we've had some time to observe the use of this as this is still a new release so we're looking for user feedback and bug reports at this point.

The whole ideas of these are tedious, mind numbing asks to further earn your way in the economy, earn a name for yourself with the achievements you're completing for them, and competition for the Gamer of The Week competition, as each point earned is sent back to our homeroom scoreboard via Signal wired. It is essentially busy work, people really enjoy the concept from what I've seen so far and I cant wait to make it better!

BoBBa Farms will be relaunching tonight at 8PM EST / 0:00 GMT TIME!

Welcome to Willowbank Ranch, your ultimate farm simulation experience!
On April 1st, 2024 the original BoBBa Farms (established upon the release of myBoBBa) was closed down and replaced with our brand new Distraction & Diversion- Willowbank Ranch! Tasked with feeding, and medicating an every-growing city, volunteers such of yourself are key to ensure the success of the program. Strap on those work boots and head on down to the crop fields to begin your journey on the ranch. The process is simple, and your goal, even simpler… complete all of the achievements in your Event Journal and help BoBBa City thrive! To sign up, head on down to Willowbank Ranch, located South West of Alpine Falls.

Willowbank Ranch - Crop Watering & Harvesting
To begin, start watering the crops. Each plot contains a different type of crop for harvesting- carrots, cabbage, sunflowers and tomatoes. You can water a patch by double clicking a water pump. Success will be indicated by the watering can in your hands- now, simply walk on a patch to water it, and watch it sprout! When a crop grows to completion, double click one of them (success is indicated by crop item in your hand), and bring them to the plots corresponding basket!


Tired of watering & harvesting? Why not give Apple Picking a chance! Double click on an Apple Tree to pick an apple. You must wait 10 seconds between picking apples, and need to collect 5 before delivering them to Samantha just outside of the crop area.

While harvesting, there is a 15% chance of finding a Gold crop. Gold crops are a rare, untradeable item that can be used to craft Willowbank Ranch custom rares! Once you have collected enough of the required Gold crops, you can build that corresponding rare! Each rare item crafted comes with its own Achievement. These are tradeable rare items which can only be created by volunteers on the farm, such as yourself.

You think you're ready to craft those rares? Visit Willowbank Bob at his workbench on Willowbank Ranch to get started! You must collect the correct amount of ingredients before you are able to begin crafting an item.

Willowbank Ranch- The Barn
Included as an extension onto the main Ranch room, the barn is host to two additional achievements.

Plug those noses and get to work, those stalls won't much out themselves! To begin mucking out a stall, simply double click on a poop to pick it up. Bring it to the Wheelbarrow for disposal. You must clean 1 poop from each stall before repeating that stall again.

Keeping the animals well fed, watered and happy is of the utmost importance for the success of the farm. To begin feeding the animals, simply approach them (a tile directly in front of them will do and ‘scratch’ (double click) them. A thought bubble will appear above their head, indicating the animals current need. Head to the pile of food, stocked with the hay in the corner of the barn (indicated by the arrow). Double click the item the animal wants, and bring it to them (double click them again). Success is indicated by a thumbs up above your head

*Each animal successfully fed, and stall successfully mucked out, rewards you with on scoreboard point in the barn itself, on the ranch grounds, and in The Hub.

Calling all Cannabis connoisseurs- we need dedicated people to help grow, harvest, and supply BoBBa City with recreational and medical cannabis!

To begin, simply approach one of the plots. When you are on a tile directly in front of the plant, the needs of that plant will appear. Collect what the plant wants from Robbie's workbench, and double click on the plant to deliver. There are four growth cycles to a Cannabis plant. Once the plant has reached its final cycle (indicated by an arrow above the plant) you may harvest it.

Harvesting a Cannabis plant rewards the user with achievement progress, as well as a bonus 10 points on the scoreboards for the Ranch, and The Hub... but- be careful, anyone can steal your harvest at any point in time!
