Hi all. First up, let me just say this is a great forum - you've helped me so much already, but I just need a teensy weensy bit more help... hope someone's still reading this sub-forum :}

I've got two items missing, and no idea where to look (well... I have some idea, thanks to vix's fantastic guides, but to no avail). They are...

Town -- Roadway -- Umbrella Shop Sign
Town -- Dove Lake -- Drainboard

Any pointers? I've scoured MAS8 / Ursa Major / Virgo / Pisces as best I can and come up with nowt...

I'm still reading it, don't worry. :)

Umbrella shop sign - 1m14cm9mm

Drainboard - 42cm

I'd recommend rolling in MAS 8 for the shop sign. The sign might be one of those items that disappears once you get to where it was at if you were following a route. Because it's so small, get to the roadway early, at 1m50cm, so you have no chance for having it disappear. Same with the drainboard. I can't remember where this one is... sorry. Since it's so small, it should disappear quite early as well.

I don't know exact locations, but keep looking! The next time I play, I'll fire up the game and look. Heck, I might not even have these items in my collection! :ohmy

Good luck! :thumbsup

FOUND IT!

Umbrella Shop Sign is in MAS8 as FoominFan suggested. Right after you pass the 1.5m barrier and the cones, immediately turn left and there should be a small shop along with some umbrellas and guess what else, the Umbrella Shop Sign! Yay!

Oh, and if it makes any difference I played in Eternal.

Good spot, friendlyrollingstar - there's even two of them there! Of course, I've always missed that because I always go RIGHT onto the roadway :P


That just leaves the Drainboard...

perhaps try in the eternal 1? i mean, it makes sense it would be there but then again who knows. i don't know offhand at the moment though.

Great idea, vix; alas, I just scoured MAS4 & Eternal 1 with no luck :}

Can anyone do a screenshot so I know what I'm looking for? :}

Nice, FRS. You beat me to it! :)

Hm, the drainboard. Dove Lake... it seems as though it would be in the middle of the lake on one of those levels that you suggested. Or near the fishing shack. :shrug

Just scoured MAS8 / Ursa Major / Virgo / Pisces / E2 again, doing laps of the roadway and working in. Nothing :(

It might be against something or camouflaged. And again, you can roll it up at 42cm. It's small, so it's likely that it's disappearing before you do your "laps" around the level.

Are you growing bigger on your way around? I'd try avoiding that, and stay...

...less than 2m30cm in MAS 8/Eternal 2

...less than 1m60cm in Pisces

...less than 2m30cm in Virgo

...and less than 3m60cm in Ursa Major, though I highly doubt that the drainboard is in this level.

Also consider the fact that some items are different in Eternal 2 than in MAS 8. You might want to run both separately, and with the same routes.

Oh yeah, haven't tried looking in MAS8, only Eternal 2 and the constellation levels. I'll try that if I get the chance plus is it possible that the drainboard could also be in other locations as well as Dove Lake? The epic search for the drainboard continues...

Heh - I've pretty thoroughly trawled all the aforementioned levels (including both MAS8 and Eternal 2), doing complete laps of the lake and the island, peeking pretty much everywhere ... all prior to the first Katamari evolution.

I've also - after vix's suggestion - investigated the kitchen in MAS4 and Eternal 1, because that's a pretty reasonable place for it too. I'm not above thinking it's elsewhere, though - after all, how many people really got their Garden Rock in N. Pidgeon Street? ;)

Mind you, I've always tended to look to the ground whilst searching... just my luck it's suspended in the air somewhere, hanging off a tree maybe.

I got my garden rock in N. Pigeon St. :P

Suggestion: In MAS 8/Eternal 2, in N. Pigeon St (upper town), there are 4 pieces of wood that go up the right stairs up to the picnic table. Are those drainboards?

I used the KF item collection to take a pic but this is what you are looking for:

I know this sounds really REALLY stupid... but does the Drainboard drop out of a tree? :lol

Doesn't sound stupid... it's not odd in these games. :) But I doubt it.

Drainboard - MAS 5 - alongside the little river, near one of the vegetable fields.

Well I guess it's near Dove Lake :heh
