Oh, sad. I think when I was successful at that, in addition to of course trying to do everything relatively speedily along the way, once I was big the first thing I did was a lap around the far outside picking up all the mushrooms, which help a lot. Then I did dashes to go after any other significant clumps of stuff left on the map.

Actually, I think I did get one similar to your size before actually getting the 800m. I know I once missed the house0size eternal by like a cm and a half. -_-

well i figured out last night that you want to grab the stuff on top of the platform you start on and then go off the cliff where the balloons are, which takes you straight into town. And i concentrated on not spending _too_ much time going after large but issolated things out in the ocean until i got really large.

I was picking up the mushroom last night when time ran out, grabbed them a little earlier today for the 861m one. It's annoying how you pick up a 200m tall mushroom and get 1m added to your score =P Guess they're getting gravitationally collapsed or something? :)

So now the main thing i need to do is find all the bloody presents =P

Well, if you think about it, adding an odd-shaped 200m object to an 800m sphere certainly wouldn't get you a 1000m sphere. Especiall if everything was shifted and squooshed around to get you back to a sphere shape. If I felt like remembering geometry and algebra, I'm sure I could figure out how much volume you'd need to add to an 800m sphere to get an 801m sphere (in other words, a 1m-thick 800m-radius spherical shell, heck that should be easy to... argh! no! not actually calculating it!). *ahem*

Anyway, yeah, some of the presents really need to be FAQ'ed unless you want to spend all year searching.

*blinks* Hello! How did you finally find your way here? :)

Anyways, 861m 50cm this morning, so ha! :)

Hmm, and apparently i got the good time too and got a comet.

Dunno, followed a rabbit down its hole or something?

Mostly it was the fact that you use the same user pic as the apparently defunt journal that actually bears your name. That made it a bit easy to figure out :-P
