White Fern World
0214, 0215, 0217, 0218, 1061
The Apartments is an area accessible from White Fern World.
The exterior to the three different apartment buildings is grey with two floors and a red railing on the second floor. Each room has a door with a window to its right which may or may not show light inside. The ground outside is a deep shade of blue, illuminated by many strangely shaped street-lamps that surround the area. There is also a Vending Machine in this area.
The entrance from White Fern World is lined with street-lamps, and Hiboushi can be found there. Interacting with her results in a full-screen event with her face flashing on-screen for a few seconds before she disappears, much like Monoe in Yume Nikki. Eventually you will reach a small apartment block with one door leading to the X-Y room of Apartment 1-3.
The apartments have lightly colored floorboards, patterned wallpaper, and a sliding door leading out to a balcony. The balconies all overlook the same scene, and most have a cactus on the right-hand side.
These are the contents of each room, from left to right:
- Apartment 1-1 - This room is home to the Flower Woman and her pet caterpillar. Chainsawing either of them triggers the short Flower Woman Event.
- Apartment 1-2 - There are three large blocks in different colors and a set of buttons. Pressing the button corresponding with each block will cause that block to deteriorate. Press the buttons in blue-yellow-red order several times to destroy the blocks completely. Doing so will cause colorful new NPCs and pathway up to the Sky Kingdom to appear on the balcony.
- Apartment 1-3 - This apartment comprises two rooms. The room accessible from the main apartment complex is smaller and has an NPC wearing a red hat. If you interact with him and go through the door at the top, it will take you to the second room. The second room has an X-Y graph on the floor and two creatures with zeroes and infinity signs around them. Interacting with the X-Y creatures unlocks wallpaper #117. The creatures also flinch when the Telephone effect is used, and freak out if the zeroes and infinity signs around them are chainsawed. The bottom exit leads to a small apartment block outside, which is where you first arrive if you reach the apartments from White Fern World.
- Apartment 2-1 - This room contains a red ball surrounded by three cushions. Chainsawing the ball once cracks it open. Doing so a second time causes a blue creature to pop out, which wiggles when you interact with it. Chainsawing a third time will kill it. By the door to the balcony is a purple blob in a garbage can. If you chainsaw it, its face will morph into an angry looking eyeball. You can chainsaw it again to kill it.
- Apartment 2-2 - This is where you start if you reach the Apartments using the book in the Library. The creature in that book lives here, and interacting with it triggers the White Drooling Creature Event. If you've obtained the Spacesuit effect, there will also be a strange deformed man in the room.
- Apartment 2-3 - This room is home to Megane and his pet rabbit. If you use the Glasses effect here, he will turn invisible except for his glasses. If the UFO is outside, both he and his rabbit will be scared and run around the room frantically.
The path south of the main building leads to a crosswalk. Going left from here will take you to the Pastel Blue House. You may not be able to return to the Apartments from here if the UFO is present (1/4 chance), in which case you will hear its sound in the main area of the Apartments and its image will be floating in the background of the Zebra Crossing. If you attempt to go back to the apartments, you will instead enter a small area with the UFO in it. This UFO can take you to the Broken Faces Area and the Fairy Tale Woods, and will also grant you wallpaper #60.
The path north of the main building leads to a second apartment building with only one room on each floor.
This building can be reached using the path northwest of the main building.
- Apartment 1-1 - There is a portal to The Docks here.
- Apartment 2-1 - This room has a hole in the floor. Interacting with the hole takes you down a flight of stairs into a destitute building, where you can either continue moving downstairs or go left or right.
- Going left seems to loop endlessly. Going right leads to a wispy black and white creature, which won't let you progress until you interact with it. Continuing on to the next screen, you can proceed through a set of grey doors, which will lock behind you, to a hallway with another dual set of stairs.
- B1 - This floor has another set of stairs going downwards and miniature doorway on the other end of the hallway. If you use the Child or Fairy effect, going through the small door will take you outside to a sewer-like waterway. Interacting with the telephone poles in this area will make the camera pan upwards, revealing eyes above the wall. If you go under the bridge into the sewer, you will find two pipes on the wall. The first one leads to a ladder that you can climb to get to Monochrome GB World. The second and smaller one is covered by a grate that can be broken with the Chainsaw, but you can only enter it with the Child effect (Urotsuki will refuse to use the Fairy effect here). This leads to another corridor and eventually outside, to a narrow peninsula in Dream Park. The peninsula appears to reach a dead end at the edge of the water, but you can use the Penguin effect to enter the water and continue.
- B2 - The final stairs going down lead to the Underground Garage.
After visiting once:
- Nexus → Library → Apartments
- All of the different balconies in this area are technically the exact same place, made to look different through the use of scripting.
- In previous versions of Yume 2kki, a character named Lamp Post Boy appeared on the lamp post path, who has since been replaced by Hiboushi in 0.103i.
- The UFO in Zebra Crosswalk was initially conceptualized by みね (Mine), a lesser-known Japanese user who contributed to much of 2kki's older maps with their assets. They also created the parallax for the hilly view from the Apartment balcony.
