SoundStudio Improvisation

Hello everyone!

SoundStudio is an amazing tool that allows me to create some catchy beats for my igloo. This tool also allows everyone to share their own music with each other which is pretty awesome. It may seem like a random post, but I just want to tell everyone how you can make good use of your time when you are bored on Club Penguin.

When I don’t know what to do on Club Penguin, I usually waddle around the island, randomly. Sometimes I play mini-games but then I find that I would like to do something relaxing and fun. I guess igloo decorating is one of those fun activities I do now and then but there is something even better for those who are musicians out there. I tend to love music a lot! Whenever I hear something, my foot starts tapping or my body starts wiggling and it is all because of how my body reacts to music. This probably only happens to a small portion of people, though. Anyway, everyone should love music because it is just something to hear. You don’t even need to use your eyes to see music. It’s brilliant how sounds can have an impact on our mood. So whenever I am feeling down or bored on Club Penguin, the Dance Club is the place to go. If you want, go to a server to hear some penguin beats however I normally go to a quieter server where the population is very sparse.

Instead of listening to other people’s music, I make my own. I rarely save my music since I want to make music over the 3 minute limit. What I do, is pick a genre (Pop is my favourite) and then I just mess around with the buttons. I avoid the one-sound buttons just because I want to make something looped and fluent. In other words, I improvise on SoundStudio. This can take me around 10 minutes which is quite a long time to listen to one thin strand of music however I just find it therapeutic – especially when there are no vocals in it. Just instruments.

Sharing Creativity

Hey everyone!

Today I have a Waddle Guide for you to read and I think it is an interesting topic which will, hopefully, inspire you to open your minds more. One of the best things about the Club Penguin team is that it allows such creativity to be noticed and showcased. For example, they offer everyone in the community to submit fan art for monthly ‘Featured Fan Art’ videos. There is also the legendary Club Penguin Times Newspaper which encourages talented penguins from around the community to submit in their own jokes, fan art and a question for Aunt Arctic. I find that the Club Penguin Times is another way to help people get involved and this is yet another method from the team. What does this tell us? It tells us that Club Penguin care about it’s community and try to find many way to value everyone the best they can.

Let’s think about more examples. There is the Penguin of the Week award that is given to one lucky penguin who was nominated by one or more of their friends. I think this one is special since it shows everyone how valuable friendship is and helps the community to appreciate things more such as helpful penguins who do something special in aid of someone else. Another example includes recognition for Club Penguin Blogs. I do believe that the team check out as many Blog as they can to receive feedback and to take in any notes on anything we blog about. This helps to motivate people (like me) to blog more to you and to still keep on producing posts that are fun.

If we think more about in-game, some great hobbies to help share your creativity would be music making with SoundStudio and Igloo Designing. SoundStudio is an amazing game that helps you make music by using sampled tracks that are pre-made. However the combinations can be different every time because you can do a lot with SoundStudio. After you finish recording some music that you are proud of, people can like it which shows peer support online. Everyone loves visiting the Dance Club – thanks to SoundStudio – because there are some awesome tunes out there for people to hear and dance to. I recommend using SoundStudio more often if you love music!

Igloo Designing was covered in my last Waddle Guide however I think it is worth stating again that igloos are there for personality and creativity. Igloos show visitors what your penguin is like and your igloo is your own piece of land on Club Penguin where you can go wild and create anything you like. Again, you can gain likes from igloo decorating which is something great to be more aware of as it makes you feel proud and more recognised in such a BIG community.

“Home Sweet Home”

Hello everyone!

I thought it was time to introduce you to another Waddle Guide! Now, one of my favourite things to do in Club Penguin is igloo decorating since it can help pass the time and every time I do it, I feel proud. In this guide I would like to share some tips with you on igloo decorating and how you can make most of furniture items. Every single one of them should be appreciated in the best way for some clever and well thought-out arrangements.

My current igloo design has been with me for a while now. I am not planning on dramatically changing it either but maybe the odd tweak now and then will make it even better for me. Other people might find my igloo a bit boring and I understand that everyone have different preferences but one of my favourite themes to go for is a neutral look. Exactly, neutral is kind of boring when you hear it but the thing I like most about it, is that it helps to transform your igloo into a home that you feel comfortable in, like your real house. Sometimes I am inspired by some of the interior in my real house therefore I try to integrate it into my igloo for a homely feel that makes me feel relaxed. I am kind of a ‘Home Sweet Home’ kind of Penguin so any furniture you find in the house will be my target. Here is my igloo:

My Igloo

You can probably identify the vibe I have been talking about. I have all of the household necessities*: a kitchen, a lounge, a dining table, my blogging corner, and a fireplace. If you dig my kind of style, then consider using plant pots and wall paintings for an edge that makes your igloo even prettier.

The Cart Surfer Combo

If played correctly, Cart Surfer can earn you many coins in minutes. It may take up to 5 attempts however you will be earning thousands of coins in no time. I have my own combo which keeps me on a roll throughout the game. It is very simple but probably the best combo you would have ever come across.

This combo is made up of two moves. For the first move, you do an air somersault. Keyboard wise, this is quite simple but he timing has to be right. You press the down arrow first and shortly after press the space bar. The arrow tilts the mine cart and the space bar makes it jump. In a combo you should end up with a flip which earns you 100 points. That is quite a lot!

The next move is very simple. All you need to do is just walk on the track. By doing this, you press and hold the down arrow for a short amount of time. For this move you get 80 points which is only 20 points less than the first combo.

Now I call these two ‘The Cart Surfer Combo’ which is what earns you a lot of points in the game. All you do is take turns in performing the tricks so you get 100 points then 80, then 100…etc. The score adds up quite a lot by performing these moves. Adding the Black Puffle may increase your performance in the game. The reason why you shouldn’t perform the same trick in a row is because the score decreases; the game wants you to be unique with your moves. Continue reading

Throwing a Party

To throw a party on Club Penguin, you need to be prepared. If you want a successful party on Club Penguin you need to be even more prepared! As you can tell, parties are difficult things to host since there are a lot of things to consider to make it perfect for your guests. Some problems can not be overcome at all times however it is possible to host an amazing party for everyone.

I am not perfect at all and I have thrown quite a few. So far, I have hosted 2 major ones and small little meet-ups with my buddies. I don’t think any party is perfect since the Club Penguin community is so vast that there are a lot of time zones to keep in mind. If you pick the wrong time, a lot of people can not attend even when they wanted to. It becomes a problem for me since most of the community live in the USA yet I live in the UK. Every time I throw a party, it only suits people within my time zone which is why you have got to understand these problems.

Even though it may have a big impact on your audience, there are still a lot of people in every time zone who can attend your party so you can’t just rely on them personally. You need to get the word around! Last week I made a post on Flash Mobs which is a reasonable technique for players to use for advertising. Be sure to read it for an extra on how to throw a party.
