Creature of Kapu Cave Speedrun Planning 2

The second segment of the game is straightforward. Joe asks Big Island Mike if he ever leaves. Big Island Mike forces Joe to go fishing for him, and then he DOES leave. Joe finds the coordinates for Dr. Quigley Kim, and the game switches back to Nancy.

Then, it's the main section of the game. Nancy meets Quigley, and she's forced to do the long frass puzzle. There are a lot of things to do for this puzzle.
  • Get all the frass samples by Quigley
  • Get all the frass samples from Kapu Cave
  • See the microscope is broken
  • Go to Hilihili and get a new microscope
  • Look at the frass samples under the microscope
  • Fill out the clipboard
  • Put the clipboard in Quigley's analyzer
I think that's all you need to do. I'll have to see if you can skip any of these steps, or if you can look at the microscope (and trigger the microscope puzzle) earlier. I think you can get away with only looking at ONE frass sample under the microscope. Still, testing this segment will be a pain. It's just redoing the same things, over and over again, in a slightly different order, to see if any of them can be skipped.

The rest of the segment is linear. You tell Quigley the results. She forces you to break into Hilihili and get their pineapple sample. You test it at Camp Quigley. Then, you tell Quigley the results. She gives you more things to test. Then, you tell Quigley the results. She is confused and gives you a nose ring. (It makes sense in context.)

"Joe asks Big Island Mike if he ever leaves" That sounds suspicious when you put it that way.
