Matataki Village 100% Layout - Dark Cloud Guides
In Dark Cloud one of the main features is the ability to reconstruct all of the towns in the game however you'd like. You can technically rebuild the town however you'd like but you'll get a bonus reward for completing the town in such a way that you meet all of the villager's requests. I highly recommend you meet 100% of the Villager's requests not only because it gives you a reward but because I feel that it's a main part of the game.
Most villagers have unique requests like having their house near water or trees or being next to some cute girl (or boy) that they like. To learn what a villager's requests are simply ask them how they'd like you to rebuild their village and they'll tell you! Sometimes these requests are vague and require a little bit of thinking which is probably why you're here looking at this guide!
The second town you're tasked with reconstructing in this game is Matataki Village. Below you will find a list of each villager request and information about what it is exactly that they want from you. Further down the page you'll find screenshots of my completed version of Matataki Village with 100% fulfillment of all villager requests.
Note: To check if you've successfully completed one of the villager's requests press Select and then go into the Georama Menu. From there choose the "Georama Analysis" option and you'll get a graph, on the right you'll see a section for Request, pay attention to whether or not this bar/percentage goes up or down to see if your actions fulfill the request or not.
Pao's House: Pao would like to be placed near Peanut Pond, which is by the Wise Owl Forest's entrance.
Cacao's House: Cacao would like his house to be surrounded by at least 4 trees.
Bunbuku's House: Bunbuku would like his house to be near a watermill.
Kye & Momo's House: Key & Momo would like to be near the Wise Owl's Shop.
Baron's House: Baron likes the sound of rushing water so place him near the waterfall.
Couscous' House: He would like to be placed on one of the raised earths.
Gob's House: He would like to live near Momo.
Mushroom House: The couple that lives here would also like to be placed on one of the raised earths.
