    [COR - FB] Mint Parrot

    Fine creation, pity there are not so many large rowboats around. And it is definitely a "mint" parrot, Gustave can trust his wife on this

    [Mystery Island 12] Air Strike

    This is what the coast looks like. I am quite happy with the "new" water, the approach is inspired by ArchitectureFan. The monkeys have secret headquarters, laboratories - why should they not have ships? (Ok, usually they let some humans do the work..) These stories write themselves from some point onwards. In episode 2, @Capt Wolf answered "THIS is the build I want to see!" when I wrote "Did you know that they start those seagulls with a catapult if the load is too heavy?" Ok, now we have that build! oh those cliffhangers ... Thanks for water and story comments! The answer: The air-speed velocity of the laden swallow depends on the catapult that was used to "start" them, This is a medium-sized catapult, so the swallow will make some 15 miles per hour. The Marquis should be able to do the mathematics.

    Fine ship! And the insight: sails don't have to be white-ish.

    [Mystery Island 12] Air Strike

    Something strange is going on... So far: Explosion on Gunpowder Island A Message Is Sent A Message Is Recieved At The Headquarters Encounter in the Jungle Don't Shoot Examination Subjects Meanwhile... In the Laboratory Never Alone A Scientific Breakthrough ... As commanded by the General, the two airforce carriers "Curious George" and "Boring Johnson" were patrolling the coast of Gunpowder island. One day on the "Curious George": ... Look! There! Banana mutants! The assistant readied the catapult for the first swallow that would carry a mean coconut to its destination. It is understood that a swallow carrying such a heavy load must be started with the aid of modern technology. Guided by monkey shouts the mean-coconut-bombing turned out to be amazingly precise! And the predicted effect set in as the dreaded banana mutant turned into a banana tree: Then the mean coconut, dropped by the second swallow in the swallow squadron, hit its target with devastating power: ... and again, the tree count increased by one. The Marquis and the General were delighted! The swallows were happy to get a rest. The crew of the "Curious George" was cheering and a new ration of banana rum was quickly consumed. And they were right in their optimism. Just two days later the operation "Clean Sweep" was finished and no banana mutant was left on Gunpowder Island. The General turned to the Marquis: "You said that there was something special about these new trees. What is it?" The Marquis smiled: "Let me explain..." (to be continued)

    Thanks. Advanced science is always surprising
  7. Something strange is going on... So far: Explosion on Gunpowder Island A Message Is Sent A Message Is Recieved At The Headquarters Encounter in the Jungle Don't Shoot Examination Subjects Meanwhile... In the Laboratory Never Alone ... The Marquis was reporting something exciting to the General: As you know, we have been investigating ways to defeat the horrible mutant banana creatures. So far we have been experimenting with coconuts that are being dropped from a great height: We had expected an impact on the banana mutants when a coconut is dropped from at least 500 feet. However, the first experiments have shown no effect. The banana creatures were unharmed. But then we found a way to transform the ordinary coconut. Now my assistant will show you what we can do now to enhance the coconut: Just one small drop of the substance will be applied to these three ordinary coconuts. As you can see, they turn into really mean and vicious coconuts! And now we expect the following to happen: When hit by a mean and vicious coconut, the banana mutant will remember its harmless resident form and turn into a banana tree! General: And what is this strange substance that turns coconuts into mean coconuts? Marquis: It is called "cocorite". We had a theory that such a substance would exist. But only yesterday it was actually discovered by a human by the name of "Professor Thaum". General: Fantastic results, Marquis! Quite impressive. We will prepare the carriers and get into action!

    The bananas keep getting more and more dangerous And now we have "cocorite"? Let's see where this discovery will take us - or will it? Poor GlooGloo

    LW 2019: Windfall Island

    I remember seeing this island when you started working on it. Now it is finished (or is it?) - and it is fantastic. I strongly hope it will inspire more pirate islands!

    [Mystery Island 9] In the Laboratory

    quite right, Albert Orangustein has founded the theory behind this storyline... Thanks. The trans blue thingies are inspired by professor Thaum. And it is indeed an old 70s torso Thanks, I'll tell the monkeys that you liked it.

The General entered the laboratory. The scientists appeared to be busy. "Any progress so far?" "Well", the Marquis replied, "Several facts are now clear: Most of the bananarite that caused the explosion was consumed in the explosion. This limits the effects we see to Gunpowder Island. The remaining aerosolic bananarite has had an enormous mutating effect on the banana plants on the island, creating walking banana mutants." General: "How do we deal with these banana mutants?" Marquis: "Difficult to say. They are immune to ordinary weapons. You see, the natural banana is a peaceful being. The idea of 'weapons' is not within bananas. Still they contain a high portion of unaltered bananarite in their bodies." General: "How can we harvest this bananarite?" Marquis: "Well, we have to defeat the walking mutants first. Make them resident again. Then we can apply standard filtering techniques." General: "Then let's defeat them! Let's get them! Let's get them! Em, how do we do this?" Marquis: "We currently do not know. My assistant has been working on several formulas and potions, but so far ..." General: "We need a result by tomorrow. Go on." The General leaves the laboratory and the scientists continue their studies and experiments. (But still, in a different place, indications for a new hope arose...) (to be continued)

Back on Gunpowder Island the terror goes on... ... and another ... ... poor human ... ... gets killed in the jungle by Banana Mutants! Nobody was aware that a seemingly unrelated discovery would give the humans "A New Hope". (to be continued)

    I like this very much. In fact, I want to build something similar!
