Progressing Swimmingly

Despite being paid by Planetary Pioneers, Skye takes seriously her ethical responsibility to produce an unbiased narrative of the colonization of Viridis Primus. Her desire for an honest representation sometimes puts her at odds with Jade who would prefer a more positive spin on the colony’s progress.
~ Verdant Skies

Skye Miller is a photojournalist at Planetary Pioneers. She is hired by Jade Washington by the player completing the Recruiting a photojournalist job. When completed, the #nofilter achievement will be acquired.

Skye is a vegan.

First contact[edit | edit source]

Once the player has built the Pioneer Plaza, they can visit Jade in the Administration Building to meet Skye. The player will have the following conversation with the two of them.

  • Skye: ... I didn't mean to imply that you shouldn't be proud! It's just that the colony isn't quite what I was expecting. Based on your messages I just expected there to be... more.
  • Jade: I understand that at first glance it may not seem as though we have made much progress. However, bringing life and culture to a barren world is difficult work. Tell me, how many space colonies have you visited before ours, Ms. Miller?
  • Skye: ... Fair enough! I promise to keep an open mind! But I'm not here to advertise for your company. I'll give a fair, but honest account of the progress.
  • Jade: I would expect nothing less. [Player Name], I would like you to meet Skye Miller. She is the photojournalist I mentioned.(The #nofilter achievement is acquired.)
  • Skye: Hiya, [Player Name]! Happy to meet you! If you see me snapping photos of you, it's strictly professional. I promise!

  • Skye: I'm really looking forward to checking out your farm. Is it possible to get a guided tour sometime? My studio is northwest of Rosie's shop. With all these alien landscapes to photograph you might have trouble catching me at home though. But don't let that stop you from popping in to say hi! You might luck out and catch me developing some prints. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of one another, [Player Name]. Later you two.

Small talk[edit | edit source]

Talking with characters outside of job duties can improve the player's relationship with them. Skye can say any of the following when engaging in small talk with her:

“I can't promise all the photos I take of your farm will be flattering.”


“I hope you catch and release when you go fishing, [Player Name].”


“Do you know anything about photography, [Player Name]?”

  • Teach me?
    • Unknown dialogue
  • Not much.
    • Skye: It's not for everyone.
  • More than you.
    • Unknown dialogue

“I'm so glad the plants on this planet taste so good! I was worried I wouldn't have anything to eat!”

Relationship progress events[edit | edit source]

When the player is advancing from one stage (heart) in a relationship to the next, it is done so through an event.

First green heart[edit | edit source]

First Green Heart.png
The player can reach the first green heart by visiting Skye's Studio when her relationship bar is full.

Welcome, [Player Name]! Come on in and make yourself comfortable. I just want to chat a little about your role here on [Viridis Primus]. (It seems like you're on pretty good terms with Administrator Washington. I hope your loyalty to her doesn't alter your responses to my questions. — (This sentence is available only if you already saw Jade Third green heart event.)) I'll be taking a few notes as we talk today just so that I can be sure I understand your responsibilities. Don't let it make you nervous!

  • Do you have to take notes?
    • I wish I didn't need to, but accuracy is very important to me. I won't show anyone else my notes.
  • Okay!

If you want to see what I'm writing down, just ask! It'll keep me honest if you're double checking me. Now, I understand you're responsible for most of the manual labor here. Tell me about how you got roped into that!

The screen dims, and 2 hours passes.

You've got quite the interesting story, [Player Name]! I'd never have guessed.

  • I'm not that remarkable.
    • Haha! Interesting and humble. Quite the combo there, [Player Name].
  • Thank you!

I think I have a decent idea what you do around here. I'll check in with you later if I have any follow up questions. Have a great day!

Second Green heart[edit | edit source]

Second Green Heart.png
The player can reach the second green heart by visiting Skye's Studio for lunch when her relationship bar is full and the first green heart has been reached.

You're just in time! I just finished preparing lunch. There's plenty for you too. It's nothing fancy. Just some fried rice I tossed together. I hope you don't mind. I don't eat meat.

  • Me either!
    • You seemed like a very compassionate person.
  • That's okay.
    • Thanks for understanding.

I've always loved animals. I can't stand the thought of eating them. Not that I judge other people for their food choices! I'm especially fond of fish. I can't wait to see what's swimming around the lakes and rivers here! Listen to me rambling on about fish. Let's dig in!

The screen dims, you regain 30 energy and 2 hours passes.

You're so fun to chat with, [Player Name]! Oh! Look at the time! You'd better get back to work. I don't want Administrator Washington blaming me if you fall behind! Why don't you take the recipe for my fried rice so you can make it yourself sometime? If you experiment and make it better, let me know! (Unlocked Fried Rice recipe)

Third Green heart[edit | edit source]

Third Green Heart.png
The player can reach the third green heart by visiting Skye's Studio when her relationship bar is full and the second green heart has been reached. This event vary quite a bit depending on what expansions the Player has made.

I hope you're wearing your walking shoes! I'm ready for my guided tour. This colony isn't going to photograph itself. I've got the perfect soundtrack for our shoot. Let me grab my music player and we can be on our way.

  • If you have built the Bridge expansion.
    • Wow, [Player Name]! You built this bridge to the Eastern Plains all by yourself? Sometime you'll have to tell me how you achieved that lovely arc.
  • If you don't have built the Bridge expansion.
    • So this is where Administrator Washington wants you to build the bridge to the Eastern Plains. It's so beautiful over there! I can't wait to see what's on the east side of the river.

Where to next?

The screen dims, and 1 hour passes.

Would you look at this, Pioneer Plaza! There's nothing excessive about this lavish gathering space, is there? I'm sure Administrator Washington was pleased as punch when you finished this! I got some decent shots. Anywhere else we should go?

The screen dims, and 1 hour passes.

  • If you have cleared the way to the Northen Mountains.
    • There used to be a giant boulder here that was blocking the way to the Northern Mountains? And you singlehandedly removed it? [Player Name], I'm impressed! Flex for this shot!
  • If you don't have cleared the way to the Northen Mountains.
    • So you're going to remove this boulder that blocks the way to the Northern Mountains? How do you plan on doing that?! I'm sure you'll think of something. You're very resourceful.

Walk me back to my place? I'd hate to get lost out here.

The screen dims, and 1 hour passes.

Build none Build 1 or 2 Build All
Sure looks like you have your work cut out for you!
  • I do, but hard work doesn't scare me!
  • That's the spirit, [Player Name]! There's nothing more attractive than someone who's willing to put in the effort to achieve their goals.
  • I'll eventually get around to it.
  • You didn't strike me as the lazy type. I guess maybe I read you wrong.
Looks like you're doing pretty well! Only a little work left to do.
  • I do, but hard work doesn't scare me!
  • That's the spirit, [Player Name]! There's nothing more attractive than someone who's willing to put in the effort to achieve their goals.
  • I'll eventually get around to it.
  • You didn't strike me as the lazy type. I guess maybe I read you wrong.
You've really done a lot of work in a very short time!

Thanks for the tour of the colony, [Player Name]! I got some really good shots. Here's a copy of the music disc we were listening to. Maybe you'll think of me when you listen to it? — (Unlocked Music disc for: Skye & Progressing Swimmingly achievement.)

First Blue heart[edit | edit source]

First Blue Heart.png
The player can reach the first blue heart by visiting Skye's Studio when her relationship bar is full and the third green heart has been reached. This event vary quite a bit depending on what the Player answers during a small talk with her.

You got here just in time! I'm about to go develop these landscape photos I took yesterday. Why don't you come in and give me a hand? You'll need to wear this protective equipment. Please don't touch anything unless I tell you to. These chemicals can be very dangerous if handled improperly. Now let's see what marvelous images I was able to capture! Oops, sorry it's so tight in here. These are turning out great. Can you see them in the dark?

During a small talk, Skye asked if the Player know anything about photography.
"Teach me?" answer "Not much." answer "More than you." answer
Well, you wanted me to teach you a few things, right? ... I mean about photography.. you mentioned that once. Next we move the photos into this chemical bath here... - So, earlier you said you were a pro at this.
  • Actually, I'm new to this darkroom stuff.
    • Then I'll call this my opportunity to teach you about developing photos. You can show me your expertise later.
  • Yeah, I know what all these chemicals do.
    • Good, I'll put you in charge of fixing and washing. ... I mean about photography.. you mentioned that once. Next we move the photos into this chemical bath here...

... now let's hang these to dry... The screen dims, and 2 hours passes.

Well that's definitely more interesting with a helper! Now I know how my dad felt when I kept getting under foot while he was trying to process his photos.

  • Hey! I was trying really hard!
    • Sorry if I hurt your feelings, [Player Name]. I was just teasing you a bit. I didn't realize you were so sensitive. You shouldn't take me so literally.
  • Your dad's a photographer too?

I inherited my love of photography from my dad. He's really supported and encouraged me throughout my career. Some of the images I helped him develop were so stirring that I can still see them when I close my eyes. Do you have anything that's affected you like that, [Player Name]?

  • Of course!
    • I knew you'd understand! There's more to you than meets the eye.
  • Not really, no.
    • That's too bad. I understand keeping your guard up, but I'd feel so uninspired if I didn't open myself up to feel once in a while.

Here I am rambling on again! Now scoot! Don't let the administrator catch you leaving. She and I don't need anything else to fight about.

Second Blue heart[edit | edit source]

Second Blue Heart.png
The player can reach the second blue heart by visiting Skye's Studio in the morning when her relationship bar is full and the first blue heart has been reached.

You look fetching, [Player Name]! I'm really excited to capture your true identity in our session today. I wonder what we should use as a backdrop? Do you have a preference?

  • The bridge is nice. (This answer is available if the Player has built the bridge.)
    • It sure is! Good choice. Why don't you stand in the middle of the bridge there? Perfect!
  • I like the plaza.
    • I suppose you put a lot of work into the plaza. That makes sense. The fountain is nice. I guess this place is growing on me.
  • Maybe the beach.
    • Rosie told me about your arrival. I guess you've got a strong connection to the beach. It is lovely down here. Such a nice breeze coming off the water.
  • My field.
    • Of course! You must be very proud of your hard work. Why don't you stand on the edge of the field there? Perfect!

Just relax and trust me. I'm going to get some really nice photos of you, I promise! Tilt your head back a little. A bit more light will really define your facial structure. Now smile...

  • If you were humble/not confident during the interview.
    • Please stand up a little straighter and square your shoulders. There you go. Humility is a great personality trait, but you really need to have a strong presence when being photographed.
  • If you have accepted her compliments during the interview.
    • Very good presence! You're standing nice and tall. Have you modeled before?
      • No.
        • You'd never know it. You're a natural!
      • Yes.
        • It shows! You're really good in front of the camera, [Player Name].

Oh, don't move! There's a sweet little bird I'm going to try to get in the frame.

  • If you said that you don't eat meat too.
    • Aww, it's getting so close to you! It must know you're good to animals. There it goes! I think I was able to get a couple nice shots before it took off.
  • If you said that you eat meat.
    • Aww. Too bad! It flew away rather quickly. I don't think I got it. You must have startled it.

Why don't we go for some action shots?

  • If you said that you hard work doesn't scare you.
    • I know you're not afraid of a little effort. Give me a couple turns.
  • If you said that you'll eventually get around to work on expansions.
    • I know it sounds like an awful lot of work, but it's worth it. You won't even break a sweat!

Nice work, [Player Name]!

  • If you said that you can feel the things deeper than what they are.
    • I think I really captured your sensitive side in a few of those.
  • If you were sensitive to her teasing.
    • You look a little flustered.
      • I'm not.
        • Thank goodness! It must just be the heat.
      • You keep insulting me.
        • Oh, [Player Name]! I would never dream of insulting you. I'm so sorry if you feel that way. Please forgive me.

These shots are going to turn out great. Let's head back.

The screen dims, and 2 hours passes.

See! What'd I tell you? These are lovely pictures of you! I hope they're adequate reward for having to put up with me.

  • I enjoyed your company!
    • I'm glad! I really enjoy spending time with you too!
  • I guess they'll have to be.
    • Wow, [Player Name]! Guess you really put me in my place.

I'll walk you out. Later, [Player Name].
