Muska Lacka 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!
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.
Before we get started I feel obligated to say that Muska Lacka is very different from the previous towns. This town revolves around the 3 totems as you may already have discovered from talking with the villagers. Let's start by looking at the three totem poles and which of the villagers houses must be placed around them. After we've done that, we'll fulfill the villagers other wishes.
Totem Pole A: Chief's House, Prisoner Cabin and Toto's House
Totem Pole B: Zabo's House, 3 Sister's House, Brooke's House
Totem Pole C: Jibubu's House, Enga's House, Ungaga's House
Chief's House: Place her house near the entrance to Sun & Moon Temple.
Jibubu's House: All he wants is to be correctly placed around Totem Pole C.
Zabo's House: Place Zabo's House in the correct spot around Totem Pole B.
3 Sister's House: Place their house around the oasis and also place it around their correct Totem Pole (B).
Brooke's House: She would like to be placed around her Totem Pole (B).
Enga's House: Place Enga's House in the correct spot around Totem Pole C.
Prisoner Cabin: Gron would like to see the sun rise each morning so face him east. Also place the building in the correct spot around Totem Pole A.
Toto's House: Place his house in the correct spot around Totem Pole A.
Ungaga's House: You can't actually move his house but you'll have to place Totem Pole C near it/facing it properly like the rest of the houses in town.
Tip: Start with the Prisoner Cabin and then the 3 Sister's House. The Prisoner Cabin needs to be facing east which means all the other buildings change depending on where you put this. 3 Sister's House wants to be near the Oasis and that will require unique placement that the other must adapt to.

After you achieve 100% Requests for Muska Lacka there will be a scene with you and Ungaga inside of the Chief's House. She'll reward Ungaga with a Mirage weapon (pictured above) and Toan with a Diamond Gem. The Mirage can be evolved into Ungaga's best weapon, check out Ungaga's Ultimate Weapon Guide for more information about that.
