I remember being so disappointed when I played NL for the first time, but I can't remember why. The game is very good and I've tried going back to WW, it didn't age well at all.
Sadly my little cousin deleted my town so I haven't played in a loooong time, this thread might motivated me to start all over again tho.

I think I liked WW better because it had a lot more different dialogues.

>i just want a new game to be announced!

With E3 just being around the corner, do you guys think that it will be announced?

I mean around this time you get tons of rumors popping up here and there about various games being announced by Nintendo but AC is kind of a thing that many, many people are super certain of that 2018 will be the year that Animal Crossing is coming to the Switch. Thoughts?

No. 9051

I have literally been praying for an announcement for months now. Bought a switch for it (played other games in the meantime of course but I'm convinced AC is coming our way).

I have a really long commute to work and all I want is to relax and build a cute town!

So yeah, very confident we will get a switch AC - it's the perfect platform for it and it's been over 5 years since NL.

hopefully nintendo will be smart enough to realize people will drop some cash for a new AC game. new leaf was fantastic in my opinion and building up improvements on it will be so great. i realllllyyy hope the next AC will let you have more control over buildings….like having an unlock list for public works projects rather than having neighbors suggest them to you because that rng sucks so bad. i also want the ability to decide where your neighbors build their houses because ive had too many areas ruined by some asshole wolf moving in right where i had a garden or where i planned to place a public works project

Seriously. I'm usually against cheating, but I ended up using a save editor to move those dickhole villagers' houses out of my way. I've had so many villagers move directly in front of my bridges, completely blocking the paths.

Also, fuck rocks

NL actually fixed that after the welcome amiibo update. any patterns on the ground are recognized by the game so no one moves in on them or anything anymore. so now if you have spaces you want to reserve, just put cute decorative gardens in that area!

No. 9059

I sort of want to get Home Designer, but it feels like it might end up being an impulse purchase (like 3DS Nintendogs, Mario Kart, etc). Plus I don't see copies with the amiibo reader included anymore, which is part of the appeal, especially with the Welcome Amiibo update in NL.

>i think treehouse has been going down in quality more recently
Do you mean how so many of the conversations in CF and NL were just about food, when WW was more diverse? (Not sure about the original Gamecube one, since it's one I haven't played) I might be mixing this up, but apparently Treehouse took a lot of liberties in localizing WW, when the original JP version had a shit ton of food conversations.

I'm reaching, but I feel like the backlash against localizations with massive changes is a reason why they've (likely) stuck to the Japanese script for recent titles. Hopefully the Switch game departs from the current trend…

No. 9060

I'm honestly still upset there was no main game on Wii U. I got a Wii U specifically for the New Animal Crossing, only to be given a mediocre party game. I'm glad we got Pocket Camp as a little setback, but I'm ready for a console release.

I recently tried getting back into City Folk, that game wasn't that great either. I hated how there was no Gamecube controller support.

New Leaf is still entertaining, but the charm died down for me after a couple months since I already had a bunch of stuff unlocked.

No. 9061

I could never get into CF as a kid. Making custom designs wasn't fun, fishing/catching bugs felt weird, and talking to the animals was the worst in the series. I remember having an insanely hard time making money too, the wiimote made everything even more inconvenient.

Also, Coco is moving away from my town in NL on the 4th. Does anyone want her?

No. 35325


The last time they announced a special switch bundle, they did it right away when they did a bigger presentation on the related game. I think when the switch smash bundle was announced it was done at last year's E3 when it was mainly about Smash, so if there would be a AC bundle to come, they would've announced it by now - in my opinion.

But I also hope that there will be one or at least some Joy-Cons because if there is something I hate about the Switch it's the lack of cool designs like we never got a Zelda one. I want the same kind of variety as the 3DS(XL) had.

No. 35338

Hate to be negative about this but this looks like animal crossing with all the life sucked out of it. The instagram filter look on it looks like an eyesore and the minecraft mechanic is way out of place. If I wanna play minecraft or stardew valley, I will. Hope it's not as bad as city folk.

No. 35347

I agree. I couldn't stand pocket camp because of the annoying crafting mechanic (and the microtransactions). I am just not really looking forward to this as much as I want to. I thought the "island package" was some sort of DLC, not the actual game. I hope we still have a river at least?

No. 35359

Not sure how I feel about crafting, just yet. Being able to craft furniture might make the decoration/housing aspect of the game more satisfying, but the tedium of it (especially if the real-time aspect means waiting days for resources to replenish) might not be worth it. I'm trusting the development team, though, after they gave us Splatoon 1/2.

There's rivers prominent in the trailer.

Current Mood

No. 36384

I personally just wanted more customization and a lot more work on the personalities of the villagers. Maybe each villager having their own specific dialog rather than just personality types, for instance. More events, more collections and maybe a better way of showing them. Maybe some kind of shop mechanic where you run your own store. Stuff like that.

Crafting doesn't do anything for me. It's a negative even.

The variety in foliage looks amazing however and I'm looking forward to decorating outdoors as well as indoors. Grinding for bells then spending them to unlock shops then grinding more for each clunky town upgrade etc sucked for me so I won't miss any of that if they exclude that shit from the new title entirely.

I love overgrown looking towns and I hacked the fuck out of mine to get the layout and feel I wanted out of it in ACNL. This new game looks like it will let me achieve that nice lush look without hacks and I'm into that! Animal Crossing has always been about escapism and relaxation for me so if the crafting system isn't too obnoxious I'll probably still enjoy the new title.

No. 36437

i don't get people bitching about the crafting aspect, the entire game is collecting and selling shit, the crafting just cuts out the middle man, like collecting 3 pieces of wood to craft something, rather than having to sell 3 fish. i personally like the idea of not relying on expensive beetles to decorate my town/house. and i'm especially excited about being able to just make tools! plus it looks like you can just buy stuff outright from nook anyway but we'll see.

the annoying stuff about pocket camp is that there's no more game there. the crafting is annoying because of how limited it is to push the microtransactions. but either way, i think the demo was just super limited since the devs didn't want to really show much.

No. 36438

>thinks the only way to get money is selling beetles.
No one wants the crafting, dude. This shit needs to go, there's plenty of other games for people who want to craft. It's a huge timewaster, not a replacement for making money.

No. 36501

I think the real issue was that the beetle->money->furniture loop itself is also just really boring. Crafting isn't going to be less boring.

I said it earlier but I really think the new game should have introduced more minigames in the form of "jobs" to the game. ACNL had that cute cafe and I liked getting even that tiny bit of minigamey interaction between my character and the NPCs. A more robust system where you can run a store, work as a barista, design clothes or homes, etc. would be amazing. Animal Crossing is about decorating, experiencing the comfy seasons, and interacting with the cute animals.

Crafting is a step in the right direction as opposed to the old bell loop but I think a job system would have made it far better.

No. 36504

I agree. While I don’t agree with additional crafting elements - that’s half of the reason why I stopped playing PC - I realized through PC that I wanted more mini games to break up the monotony. I can understand the logic behind it though.

God, the more I watch videos about the new game the more impatient I get about it. The fact that you can customize and craft really so much really gets me. I also get the impression that you can make a much bigger progress from the beginning to create your own town, so it really depends on yourself how much time you invest into it. Also the fact that you can tell villagers where they can move is just such a wonderful thing! I'm so excited about the shops that you can built in your town, so can basically built your own shopping mile on this island or even a small town with everybody included fuck yeah.

The fact that we have to wait around 9 months for this game to be delivered is kind of like we all expecting it like our own child lol

He was my bullying victim in my NL town.
Whenever my friend came over we'd hit him with our nets repeatedly and because we were dumb teenagers at the time, we made up this story of him stalking the other villagers and being a general creep and that our player characters were sailor scouts that had to stop him, lol.

I'm really excited for this game, I just hope that it kind of recaptures that casual campy feel of the originals. New Leaf was great with offering new customization to our towns but people kind of became obsessed with having a perfect town full of the same 'cute' villagers over and over again. Back when I did some online play someone literally thought I ruined their town because one of my villagers moved into theirs and didn't fit in their town's astethic. The whole point of AC is to kind of escape with your own little town and meet new villagers. I hope these games are more relaxed this time around.

I'm pretty sure they don't act diffrently unless you had that specific villager move into the town you're visiting. If you visit a dream adress with them they'll reconize you. In the older games like WW they'll send mail asking how you liked their new town.

and I thought that this was important to know that you CAN't transfer your AC data to one system to another. It was also stated that "Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be compatible with amiibo and will take up to 6.2GB of storage."


It will prob make sound like a salty fan girl but Smash and ugh Pokemon get their directs all the time, why not Animal crossing? And yes, we are almost there and all I know are theories from AC fan youtube channels and a bit here and there confirmed information from Nintendo. I really hope that we get an AC direct because if Smash can get one to broadcast the same fight animation for 10 minutes, so can AC and show us a bit more than we know now. I don't want to get the game and know nothing til little how to do proper progress in the game idk I also hope that ALL characters are coming with us, even the ugly ones. I hope that they don't pull a pokemon here and say at first that they couldn't put all characters in the game but then come back and let you know that you can get your characters but with paying some $$$ to them have them all.

I'm contemplating getting the AC Switch. I already have one and my boyfriend and I share, but he barely plays with it so it's probably not gonna be a big deal when I start playing daily. I'm not concerned about the battery life, majority of the time I play handheld I'm close to an outlet because everything else I use also has a battery lol. However, there's a few games coming out for Switch in a few months my boyfriend's been excited for so I have no idea if he's gonna be playing them for long.

Another thing, my sleep schedule is out of wack because I work third shift. I really do hope the opening and closing time for shops is more lenient. My normal wake times are from 8pm to 11am, pretty much the opposite of every shop's open hours. I don't know how this will affect my Animal Crossing experience since we can't change the time anymore.

No. 74722

Oh shit, they're taking away time travel? I totally missed that. Lame. Good thing my switch is hacked anyway so hopefully someone in the scene will come up with a workaround.

I'd say if you have the money, treat yourself and get yourself the AC edition. It'll be nice to have your own console and that way you and your boyfriend can play as much of your respective games without feeling guilty that you're hogging it from the other person. Plus I'm sure the special AC edition will hold high value so if you realize later that you don't need two consoles just resell it.

>no save data transfer
hope my switch doesn't fuck up then. Would this mean I can't transfer my save to another SD card? I had to do that when I initally got my 3DS due to the low storage on the original SD card
>no cloud backup
no excuse not to have this…this is a game that would really need a cloud backup. The amount of time I invest in my town, losing it would be devastating. Why does Nintendo care so much about animal crossing manipulations? It doesn't affect other players if someone chooses to cheat to get certain items, bells etc. so this crack-down seems over-the-top.
>no local backup
really? For fuck's sake

I really hope nintendo at least look into some sort of backup system. Just anything to reassure me that my town would be safe, I would be so upset if something happened to my save and there were no way at all to recover it.

yeah, it really sucks and you can only pray that your switch won't die because otherwise you are fucked. And given the fact that the switch is such susceptible system isn't helping at all. I really hope that they will allow cloud saving because as said in the video, why having cloud saving when you can't use it for most games?? And with animal crossing you literally spend years into it.

I'm still hype but ugh that't ain't great because it's all problems that are caused by nintendo and not "hackers" or whatever they fear.

I went down a weird deep dive for amiibos a couple of months ago and found out that amiibo spoofing was a thing. There's a subreddit dedicated to it and here's the guide on how to do it if you want to check it out: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amiibomb/comments/5ywlol/howto_the_easy_guide_to_making_your_own_amiibo/

I considered it because I wanted BOTW amiibos but they're butt expensive nowadays and I don't really want to have to dedicate space and more money to collecting a fuck ton of mini figures just to have in-game goodies. I assume the aliexpress ones might be spoofed too. There's stuff out there with very high res images of the amiibo cards so you can actually get nice paper and make them look super legit if you would like.

I feel you anon, honestly I'm not crazy about the tropical aesthetic either. I always preferred Wild World to City Folk but one thing I loved about CF was the adorable little city area. I already got kind of bored with the island thing in New Leaf but thankfully it looks like there's an ungodly amount of customization available in New Horizons so hopefully it'll be easy to ignore when you add your own personal touches to your island.

Look up blank NTAG215 NFC chips. If your phone has NFC capabilities, you can write Amiibo chips for pretty cheap, like 30 cents a chip if you get from eBay or Aliexpress. You won't get the pretty cards, but you'll definitely be able to have the villager.

E or H is the map similar to my new leaf town and i really like it.

No. 76732

I was originally set on C because I liked the three areas ponds/area where the streams start, but it might be kind of annoying to have everything so seperated by so many streams. It looked like in the direct that they might be like mini waterfalls which I thought was super cute so that's why I want so many of them lol.

Maybe B or E are my top picks now though. Shopping area would be in the lower right hand corner, housing would be all along the left side, and then the upper right hand corner would be a spot where I would change out the furniture depending if there was special event or just changing it depending on the season. Or maybe have a cute little outdoor garden area over there. I'm also definitely setting up my house on the cliff side. I really wanted to do that in New Leaf but that fucker Puck already set his stupid house there.

I can achieve a similar layout with F so that's also a contending map, but I like the idea of having a front facing waterfall and a side waterfall rather than two front facing ones. A would be nice too, but I think having an extra stream makes for a weird disconnect on the upper left hand side. But the cute little side facing mini waterfall tempts me…

I'm so sorry about my sperging. I'm thinking way too much about this but I'm so fucking excited for this game and I want to make the perfect little island getaway.

This whole thread made me want to buy a switch just to play animal crossing so bad. I never wanted one before but now I’m seriously considering it. Why are farmers the best saleswomen?

No. 76860

I think buying a switch just to play animal crossing sounds okay. I'm not saying you should since they're expensive, but if you have the means to do so, it's not a bad idea. Some people don't like the idea of buying a whole console for one game, but to me, animal crossing never truly has an end so I get a lot of out of it. Other games have a set ending, and their DLC have endings, but with animal crossing? The end doesn't exist because you can continue to do whatever the fuck you want. Maybe you set your "end" to be making a perfect town, but suddenly decide your perfect town isn't to your liking after you finish it, then you can spend the time to redesign the entire thing. I can pick it up or drop it whenever I want with minimal consequence (maybe it'll take a few hours or days to freshen up my town and remove all the weeds and whatever).

It's a really nice and cozy game. 10/10 absolutely worth buying a whole console for it imo. I borrowed my cousin's 3DS to play new leaf, but loved it so much that I bought my own 3DS and she very graciously gave me her copy of the game because she saw how much I loved it. I did buy some other games afterwards, but just to be able to play new leaf was a good enough reason to purchase one. If you don't want the special edition switch, I'd recommend checking out ebay (have seen them go for $150-$200 depending if gen 1 or gen 2, upwards to $300 but those usually are a great bundle deal with lots of games and extra controllers) or getting a refurbished one directly from Nintendo (it's only like $30 cheaper, but you also get Nintendo's warranty in case it goes to shit).

No. 76871

I thought the same aswell until I checked the price of a switch, they're so expensive what the heck? I can afford it but I can't justify nearly 400 euro for just the console and 1 game as a super casual gamer, I think I'll stick to animal crossing pocket camp on my phone.

No. 77432

I'm not sure you can change genders at will. I think it's just at the start so the characters know to call you he or she. you can change your appearance in mirrors but I don't think you can change gender. like you said though, you can wear whatever you like in-game, you can make your character pretty androgynous/non binary looking whatever you want to call it. maybe being called he or she will trigger they/them people. idk honestly, I imagine some will say it does

I need help with a question about my island name. ever since the first ac my town has been called Aubelle. but I think it's a bit villagey and doesn't suit an island so I was trying to think of new names and I came up with Moreau, as in the H.G. Wells book. I think it could be cool to go with a kinda dark theme and to consider the characters as vivisected experiments BUT I'm not sure I want to ruin the innocence of the game like that, as it's escapism for me. any opinions?

If you’re buying it refurbished directly through Nintendo, sure. I didn’t buy my switch refurbished, but I did get my 3DS refurbished directly from Nintendo.

Okay so going to be critical for a bit…
I’m not a fan of the crafting mechanic. I’ve always been happy with the way the games were before, but having to run around and fix my tools because they broke from me trying to get more material to create items to let people move in (diy items that I have to put outside and don’t even care to have in my town) is really redundant and not fun to me. I’ve liked just chilling, catching fish, collecting fruits and bugs and buying stuff from that. Creating things myself does nothing for me. I’m mad because now I’m one of those “the original was better!” fags. I think I disappointed myself by overhyping it in my mind.

Guys, I love this fucking game so much. I've binge playing this game for three days straight now I do love it so so much. So much details and just so much life in everything and all those possibilities it's aahhh I love, I really do.


I agree with all the anons here about the tool durability. What. the. fuck. is that. Why does my water can commit suicide after watering three tulips? I get that they tried to make it more ~realistic~ but c'mon that's ridiculous. As mentioned, this is Breath of the Wild all over again, why should I get the damn master sword even when it's going to break at some point? The same thing with golden tool here: What's the point? Now I only carry the several of the cheapest ones in my pockets bc why waste my materials on something that I can't use after my daily routine? I also feel like it really stops my gaming flow. Whenever I want to spend some time catching stuff or whatever I do maybe like fishing 5 fishes and then I can run back to craft a new fishing rod … Idk I feel like I need to get used to but other than that I feel like you can make a lot progress when you do shit tons of stuff.

100% agree. i think because of the new trend of gaming, adding updates and dlc is why. we had a ton of different fruits and new mechanics in the previous game that i would have loved to see in this one (diving for stuff was amazing!) and removing old beloved characters for new ones makes me feel dirty in a way. pretty sure we're gonna get animal crossing dlc in the coming months and the game is never going to be the same

Hey hi I was wondering about getting switch, most likely light due to not even playing my ps4 that much because i am not that into tv screen games. Should i just get ac digitally or the cart? I have never played it and i am so bored and so out of depth here. Sorry to whine.

No. 80235

Digital is a bit more convenient (especially now that so many things are shut down), but a pro of physical copies is that you can resell games when you're done with them. And Nintendo games hold their value especially well. But if you don't think you're going to get sick of AC or if you're not someone who cares about having physical collections to hold and look at, just go digital. That way you can have the game in like 15 minutes without even getting up from your couch.

No. 80239

Thanks for replying anon! Yea i was just thinking about how even some 3ds games can go for 50e still but I am also kinda scared that my digital copy could just disappear somehow lol. I would either order it or get it digitally anyways so no going out. Do you have a lite btw?

Caved and bought the game, should be arriving next week! I wanted the physical copy to begin with, but ideally wanted to go into the store to buy it. Who knows how long before lockdown is over though? Excited to start playing soon!

No problem. I have a regular sized switch. I saw a lite on display when I was at Walmart or something and it was really cute and comfy to hold in your hands.

No. 80464

I feel the same way. I mean I enjoy how it looks and the island/villager customization but I feel like so much is missing. I know this is kind of nit-picky but where is any of the special characters from the last game? I haven't seen news of Redd, Katrina, Brewster, or the police dogs being in the game at all. I know it's still early but there would be mention of them somewhere right?

No. 80466

Something feels off and lifeless compared to New leaf and i cant pin point it. Maybe it feels like i have very little space on the island at the moment and that bothers me vs being able to have the whole area at the start.

No. 80469

>but everyone has just been repeating dialogue and not saying anything interesting
Is that true? I don't have that game and I was thinking if I should get it. These talks with villagers are the best part of the game, I only played Wild Word and I was enjoying these talks a lot.

How do you feel anons, are these talks boring and repetitive?

No. 80479

I'm guessing they're going to release stuff later as updates, or if they're money-hungry enough, paid DLC.
The game feels really empty and dead at the moment, I'm hoping they'll add stuff soon to give it some life.
I'm still angry they advertised it as being multiplayer when the second player gets no privileges. I wanted to play with my boyfriend but after seeing how awful it was, we're just going to get him a copy of NL instead.
NL, WW, and GC are superior at the moment, and I hate how people are fawning over this (currently?) boring garbage.
Villagers dialogues have been dumbed down since WW, the conversations are so dull that I don't even bother talking to my villagers in NL or NH anymore.

I got a request for river fish yesterday. Looks like villagers open up the more they settle and fill their home. They also give more varied dialogue now but it took a while of them repeating the same thing over and over again for me too.

What are you disappointed about?

No. 80539

I don't think the developers finished the game on time and they're using future patches to make up for it. New Leaf remains the most complete AC experience.

No. 80586

I feel like the developers tried to make this game's playability last longer than New Leaf by making it feel slower, but they're going about it in some frustrating ways.

Adding tool durability will give players an incentive to spend time crafting and building more–but not telling you when your tools are gonna break is inconvenient as hell (and don't get me started on the fact that gold tools can still break for some reason). Making it so that you start off with a few villagers and buildings might make people check in more often throughout days and weeks to come, but why the fuck are there only two villagers to begin with? They get passive aggressive when you interact with them too much, but who else am I supposed to talk to on a barren island you dumb animals? Also why give players the power to make pro design in as short as a few hours, but make them wait days and possibly weeks to be able to buy better clothes and send out designs?

I could go on but I've rambled too much. I agree with some of the anons here about being disappointed in some things far.

No. 80588

I miss the older characters too. What's with New Horizons scrapping them and/or replacing them with child/younger counterparts. It's not necessary at all and doesn't add a new dimension to the series in any way.

Nintendo's really trying to force Tom Nook down people's throats this time around. It started becoming more apparent on social media and now that's an established fact with this game. Isabelle is way more charismatic with fans and general audiences, and should basically have become the official mascot of the franchise. Just look at how the Doom x AC fanart is usually of her and Doomguy (never Tom Nook).

"Well, it's cheating!! You are supposed to take it slow!"

"It's not cheating, if the devs didn't want anyone to time travel they would have removed the ability for us to change the time for the game."

Now since people have been giving them some (sorry for the word) valid arguments they resort to this


"Yeah and people are using the spoiler tags, just ignore those posts!"


They want to gate keep the sub lol
Never mind the first 3 days of that sub were the same posts of everyone catching an oarfish or the Ceolacanth. That's it, every post on that sub was just photos of fish.

Going to other people's islands through reddit forums is INSUFFERABLE. Every time a new person enters the island everyone has to wait literally 2-3 minutes for their character to arrive. One time I sat staring at my switch for 15 minutes because 8 people came in one after another and the game wouldn't even let me leave the island so that I wouldn't have to sit in agony. Something about this new game makes it feel like none of your work is worth anything if no one sees it. The characters have no strong personalities and also… Tom nook is way too nice in this version.

-Talking to Myself about NH-

I LOVE the new museum! the fossil exhibit is beauuutiful. some of blathers descriptions for the rare fish are anticlimactic. I was hoping he would get excited about the fossil fish at least. but the people who wrote them may not have known the rarity of the fish beforehand so its ok.

I hate most of the music. it sounds too much like splatoon bgm.

the dialog has reached an all time low. my animals are excruciatingly boring, its like they're just sentient furniture that do random cute things and give me DIY recipes I will never make. being able to move their houses is nice but it cements that. its more fun to stare at them than it is to talk to them. </3

isabelle is useless in this game. the only point of her being here is to be a meme waifu.

for the most part the crafting isn't fun, it's just inconvenient.

I miss porter. he was my fave.

the mountain part of the island is sort of ugly. Im just farming up there because Im afraid buildings would look make them look even more ugly.

I also hate crafting, it's so annoying when you see a big fish or rare bug just after your net or fishing rod broke. I do really like the new deposit box outside of nooks cranny but I've seen the updated building and I hate the way it looks inside and I never want mine to upgrade.

I've been a long time fan of this franchise but NH feels really souless and grindy. I do not like the dialogues (yes, the fact that animals got more animation is cute, but that doesn't replace that their personalities are boring and the same), items durability (even tho that makes sense) and Isabelle is completely useless here. I am pretty far in game because I've been pulling all-nighters and spent way too much time playing during the past 6 days, unlocked both stores, bridges, museum and residence building. Does the game have more buildings to offer? Doesn't seem like so.

Also, how much time of ignoring a certain villager will make them want to move out? Some say 3 days.

I have a soft spot for Gala since she was in my CF town which was the first game I got to play (she never came to my NL town though). I also love basically all froggy villagers, and I have yet to have her in my town but I really want Mallary!

I really wish they had added a new personality. I haven't been able to play NH yet but I spent a long time on NL and the dialogue/personalities became predictable so it would have been nice to have something else to spice it up.

>none of your work is worth anything if no one sees it

I never thought about it like this but I agree. I remember in CF it was enough for me to just have happy villagers, I didn't feel like I was missing out for not having online play. In NL too, for the most part. But from what I've seen this game feels less about having an insular 1P experience than it does about flexing and buffing up your town to play with others, since by all accounts the villagers are lacklustre.

My main love for NL was because of the fact about how relaxing the game was, characters were friendly and supportive, while projects didnt feel like a thing thats supposed to be done ASAP, while in New Horizons you can barely interact with your villagers and what u do most of the time is gather materials and grinding for projects or hot items.

I also feel like the villagers are borings as shit. At least in New Leaf they had meaningful moments, flirted with the characters or said silly things, even if the dialogue wasn't as clever as in Wild World.

Now I don't even talk to my villagers. The other day one of them said to me: ""I'm going for a walk!! Just like that, one foot in front of the other!"
What the fuck. I tried to talk with another villager and she said: "What a nice day! Nice days are always good for the health."

And THAT'S IT. Also, they don't notice you that often, maybe once in a million years. It's frustrating.

I mean like how everyone and everything is super pleasant. Japan is basically 1950s America, so they have this idea that everyone in their society should act like a well-paid customer service representative, no emotions all smiles. But I also think that the localizers have a lot to do with that honestly. The Japanese dialogue is still a bit better, more stilted like I'm used to. I also hold issues with the fact that a few fish are just named entirely wrong species but that's whatever. The localization in this game to me is just weird because in earlier games they tried to localize too much stuff away from being Japanese (such as making Marcel a mime, when he's clearly a noh actor) but are also making the dialogue way more cutesy. My peppy villager did say something about beating Gulliver with a stick though, so I dunno.

The damn posts about people catching 'rare' fish is still ever present "HAS ANYONE CAUGHT THIS!?" yeah a shit ton, it's been a week now.

I hope they update villager dialogue, it's a little stale. Maybe it takes them awhile to really open up? one nitpick, I have cranky villager and he isn't as cranky as they used to be in other games. Kind of sucks lol Not expecting him to be mean but to be actually cranky, you know?

Over all it's a really clean game, looking back at new leaf and it's almost muddy in comparison. Can't wait for the free updates and dreading the paid ones.

mini rant, my switch probably won't arrive until late April (even though I had preordered it in January) so I'm gonna miss all the April events when I should have had the game a week ago. I know it sounds entitled but I'm just so salty right now because I waited so long to play, just to miss out because my bank decided to cancel the transaction (and not tell me…)

No. 80775

I'm really enjoying the game so far, I like that it's very slow paced.
I could be wrong but it seem like people complaining the most are playing 6 hours a day and / or time traveling to the extreme. I only really have the time to play for 1 hour a day, top, so it pretty much never feel empty to me.

No. 80777


Not to be one of those people buuuuut… I agree that the ones who complain the most seem to time travel a lot. I don't time travel and even though it was really slow in the beginning, I'm enjoying it a looot a week in.

No. 80782

I think it's really good as a modern Animal Crossing. Looks nice, feels good, it's exactly what I expected. I played Pocket Camp for a bit and I had more problems with that than New Horizons. I was really relieved that there's no microtransactions in NH since it was so heavily pushed in PC. I agree that the people saying it feels barebones are playing all day every day, but that's never really been AC's style. Even in the old ones, if you played for long periods of time, eventually you "run out" of stuff to do for a bit.
I also really don't mind the tool durability and crafting. I actually like being able to craft stuff as needed rather than waiting for it to show up in a shop. I do wish I could buy DIY recipes for stuff I need (in order to build Item A, I need Items B and C, but only have the recipe for B so far, etc). But with the tool durability, maybe just don't craft/buy the tools labeled FLIMSY and you'll find they don't break as often?

No. 80794

I agree w u. I really don’t mind if people time travel but for me, part of the personal appeal of the game is the waiting. There’s something to look forward to every day. A new bridge built, a building renovated, an expanded house, a new fruit tree grown. Gives me something I want to wake up for. That’s why I think many people with depression really enjoy it. And the fishing/bug catching, while requiring minimal effort, is a nice repetitive action that I can do even when I’m upset or anxious. I think if you’re coming into animal crossing looking for something exciting or absolutely captivating, you’re picking up the wrong game. Play it for an hour then play smash or something. I personally like to catch and sell fish while I watch YouTube or browse lolcow

How are you able to get so many Nook miles to travel that much ? Ive only been to one island and thats because Nook gave me a free ticket. Im having trouble racking up miles.

Btw is it true that you need an account(and to pay a monthly fee) to be able to go to other people's islands? In New Leaf that shiz was free!

No. 80848

Not original poster but I've managed to go to 5 islands so far just by fishing like a mad woman and cutting trees. You eventually get 300 miles per day just from going to the atm thingy in the RS tent. I could have purchased even more tickets (5 more probably so 10 total) had I not used my miles on other things. I don't even play for a long time. Are you fishing every day?

All I want is for mabel to come to my village but she's taking forever.

Today was the first day where there wasn't much to do/explore so I didn't play. I could have raised money to pay off my 300k house debt, but knowing that all I would get in return is an opportunity to add an extra room to my house and go into even more debt did not seem worth it. I went to the Harvey's photoshoot island and it was..confusing and kind of pointless. I agree with the person who said that the islands aren't very diverse. I went to one with bamboo and that was pretty cool but now all that's left from what I hear is tarantula island which… I've been to at least 8 islands so far using nook miles and haven't found it.

I'm a veteran Animal Crossing fan. I've played every game and have spent an embarrassingly large percentage of my life playing this series. I don't like NH that much. I agree with other anons that it feels kind of empty, and something about it makes it feel like a demo rather than a full game. It's lacking some of the heart that the previous games had. I 100% put that on the villager interactions (or lack thereof) Villagers and special characters make the game and we just didn't get that this time around.

I've had it over a week so I will say I like it more now than I did the first few days, but I'm not in love with it and will probably go back to NL or replay the GameCube version instead. Sucks because I bought the special console too. Sorry to blog post but this series means so much to me and I'm sad that it's so … bland compared to th other ones.

I’ve been playing AC since Population Growing and tbh.. I love NH.. it feels a lot slower starting out for sure, but I got it on release day and it’s only gotten better over the past week. My villagers are more interactive with me, they randomly give me gifts or show me new emotions and I’ve gotten a few tasks/games. They even talk about things I did the day before and compliment my clothes or give me new accessories to go with what I just changed into. Super cute imo. My real complaint is that I haven’t gotten a single special island like the tarantula one or the hybrid flower one and I swear I’ve been to at least 20 of them by now.. maybe I just have shit luck. Decorating my home is a million times more fun, but damn does that 2nd floor upgrade cost SUCK (1.2 mil bells). I’m a nonessential worker and my school has reverted to strictly online so I’m playing an excessive amount lol. I really enjoy fishing/catching bugs tho, so it’s not boring to me to play for hours on end? This is also the first time ever that I haven’t time traveled and I’m planning on keeping it that way.

some have expressed…"People who play too much or time travel and upset with villager dialogue, the game isn't meant to be played that way."

kk wrong because Time Travel absolutely gives them variety in their dialogue. It's not that you have to time travel but with time travel more shit gets done and they'll comment on it. I even have had a nickname given to me by Plucky, I'm Gigajolt.

Oh yeah the villagers sometimes will talk for what feels like forever. So varied dialogue is there, just it takes time. you don't need to Time Travel but the more you accomplish the more they open up.

I know that ignoring villagers for like 2 weeks will make them auto leave in acnl, and it probably works in new horizons too, but my stupid peabrain can’t do it. No matter how much I don’t like a villager, no matter how much I know they are just pieces of coding and not real and don’t have real feelings, the idea of ignoring them makes me so fucking sad. Like, all I can imagine is them moving in and setting up their home, but then no one befriends or talks to them. They just made this new move to a deserted island by themself! Maybe they have good gifts or recipes to share! But oh, no one wants any of their stuff, no one wants to befriend them. So they pack up their homes, without so much as someone coming by to even say goodbye to them.

Sorry I think my period is coming and I’m extra emotional lol. There are definitely villagers out there that I don’t like, and I think the posts of people leaving easels with mean shit like “YOURE UGLY” outside the homes of villagers they hate or trapping them with fencing is really funny, but fuck man.

Heads up, that option will generally come up the first time you talk to them in a day. If you don't want/have furniture or clothes to give to them then just make sure you have some fruit in your inventory and you can give them that instead. I've only ever gotten bells in return but they seem pretty happy to receive it and it's a good alternative if you don't want to clog up their house with fish/bugs.

Gotta do it three times before they'll move in.

I got Pietro in my campsite and was ready to ignore him until I found out the first villager to use the campsite has to move in. Still gives me a headache to look at him but I'm hoping he'll grow on me.

not yet, but you can try to gauge what to give them based on their personality, their house decor and their favorite colors.
ie bright colored peppy villagers like pastel/cute things, lazy villagers like vivid colorful weird items and food, normal villagers like books and comfy decorations.
sometimes they'll care more about the item's theme (jock, cute, japanese, ect) over of the color, even if it's their favorite color.

>inb4 "it's $20 a year just pay for it"
it's the principle of it.

I just want to hustle for bells but it ain't easy when you don't have a constant source of income. Yesterday I was lucky to score the tarantula islands so I could go home with around 300k bells but I would like to have this type of thing every day but not every island I visit is meant to make money so I just end up collecting flowers and go home lol

I also have to ask a few things:

How long goes the Sakura event? It's my second day in a row without a sakura recipe and I really want the lamp ones. I got all sort of diy recipes but nothing sakura related. The normal baloons only drop the ugliest clothes …

Another thing: Tomorrow I will invite a amiibo villager for the third time on my camp site, this means they will want to move on my island. Does it mean that I have to set up a piece of land first for them to move in or do you have to put up a tent for them first?

No. 81711

Label and kicks don't get shops, they only hang out in the plaza like KK. New horizons is like a demo of a HHD sequel right now, it's annoying that we have to pray for updates and patches to make it feel like a full game.

Are you one of those Tumblrfags who make community worse than it already is? Just don't pay attention to softies who screech and wish deaths to fictional animals only because they don't fit their ~ aesthetic ~. It's just a game in the end, and paying attention to weirdos and taking a game that has rating E too deep is not gonna do you any good. It's not that deep. I personally kick out villagers only if I don't like their personality. For example, I can't stand snooty type because of the way they act and the fact that they always argue with my villagers.

Honestly, I hate what AC community has turned into ever since NH release. So much stupid drama and toxicity around. People are literally throwing torches at eachother for anything they say or do, while also pretending how uwuu they are.

People want to say time travel ruins the experience for this game - I disagree, specifically for this month. So I TT'ed a day at a time a few days ahead during March. Not really because I wanted to get stuff before other people, but because I wanted to fill my island out with villagers and I have to say, it was soooo much better before the Bunny day event. Basically if you wanted anything seasonal like the cherry blossom set or young bamboo good luck. Every other balloon or villager recipe is Bunny day. Every other fish or rock or wood drop is eggs. Even on the random islands. I was lucky I found half the cherry blossom set recipes before this because I've only found maybe two more since this event. This event also messes with the fishing tornament beause it overlaps so good luck trying to fish in the ocean without pulling up eggs. I get that wanted to give people more time for events but I reallly hope they are not all this intrusive. I honestly might TT through the event and finish it and go back in time jus to see if it makes the town go back to normal in early April.

Ok, I had to think up a happier ending because this comic is fucking haunting me lol (I’m the same anon from above who got sad about being mean to/ignoring villagers until they move out) and it’d probably go something like

>villagers go to egg his house at night with his own eggs

>sees house lights on, peek inside and see zipper crying with his sad cup noodle on the table
>feels bad man
>spend the night collecting all of the eggs he put out, crafting enough of everything for all the villagers on the island
>morning comes, zipper comes out all happy bc hes the easter bunny!
>sees everyone with all of his (admittedly ugly) furniture
>happy bunny day!
>tom nook gives him a fat paycheck
>yay everyone is happy and bunny day is over!

Oh the night thing makes sense… I got maybe around 4 last night (all from balloons) but this morning all I’ve gotten were eggs. lol I even got the sakura wand but I have no star fragments so my friends gave me some to craft them sakura wands and another friend gave me the iron pipe wand in exchange for making him a sakura wand (I actually really wanted the iron pipe wand heh).

What's your plan?

No. 81819

I’m sooo stuck between having a settled town vibe or mystical forest one… Like, I like the idea of having a town square and very organized paths and fences with garden patches, but I also like having no set paths (I currently just have a fuck ton of flowers in rows to dictate where the “path” is supposed to be), lots of trees and flowers everywhere, etc. I have everyones houses sprawled out on my cliffs, some line up neatly, some dont (just because they may be farther back on the side of the cliff or something) so it feels more “natural” rather than meticulously planned (I say, as I meticulously plan where everyone’s houses will go where they don’t interfere with my future terraforming plans lol). I’ve seen sooo many good inspo pics of both vibes though, I’m torn haha

Thank you anon! Hah, I wish I could draw decently to make this a reality… the comic did really make me sad and now I’m finally crafting all the furniture (garland and crown are cute, the bed is kinda dumb as a bed but I like having it out as decoration because having a giant basket of eggs looks so ridiculous that it’s cute). I’m giving some of my villagers the egg shell hat and it looks so dumb that it’s cute on them!!

No. 81858

I tried the night thing and I think it worked. I've been farming balloons and I've gotten barely any furniture or clothing from balloons but I've gotten way more DIY recipes. Though a lot of the recipes were for bamboo items since I haven't completed the set yet.

my first time playing as well and here are two things I wish I knew when I started. Might be spoilers/not present in previous games tho.
- when you find a glowing spot on the ground, dig it up and put the sack back in the ground. In couple of days you'll find a tree with triple amount of bells you've found
- it is possible to catch the bees that you shake from the trees. Just have to have net equipped and time it perfectly

No. 81945

I also vented about this issue here and mentioned that people have more luck during the night and some have agreed on this


Last night I tried it for myself and I got two in three hours. I just walked along the shore where the balloons appear. I feel like you really have to grind for them. Balloons (the regular ones) appear every 10 minutes.

Slight blogpost but got it just to be able to play with my mom tbh. We’re currently separated in different countries due to Covid so it’s cool to be able to chat on the phone while we show each other what we did with our islands. It’s definitely not necessary to enjoy the game but it’s nice to be able to play with irl friends in different areas of the world. Also, it’s only 20£ a year. Definitely cheaper than most game console’s online services. You get some nice little downloads for free too, like an NES virtual console. I guess it depends if you’re going to be using your switch for other games than using it for just ac. Sorry for the rambling.

No. 82059

How do we get the egg basket in this pic? It's not listed in any bunny day guides I've seen but it's cute!

$20 a year is not bad considering you get cloud storage for your games, plus it opens up a lot of enjoyable features in tons of games. Once I got it Pokemon became way more fun with trading. Idk if I'd get it just for AC but being able to visit friends and trade fruits/flowers, etc is a bonus.

No. 82063

curious what everyone's pet peeves are so far in acnh?

personally i wish there was an easier way to buy and craft multiple items at once. if the "hot item" at nook's cranny is easy to craft i usually will grind getting supplies for it and make a ton of them to get bells. i kinda wish you could say you want to craft like 10 of a single item if you have all the necessary materials in your pockets instead of making them one at a time.

i have a similar gripe with shopping at able sisters. i wish you could fill a cart with items then check out all at once instead of having to make an "outfit" to check out. sometimes i like to buy one item in multiple colors and its kind of annoying to have to keep checking out then walking right back into the dressing room. same when im trying to buy a few nook miles tickets at the nook stop. just makes things a bit tedious.

No. 82066

All of these are my pet peeves for sure, especially the Able Sisters shop. Also, I hate the breaking items and the fact that they don't tell you when they are about to break. It always happens at the most inconvenient time for me.

No. 82644

Yeah, I figured grinding was just part of the game. It’s not that big of an issue for me but I think it’ll just take me a long time to do what I want to which kinda sucks. But I didn’t have C.J or that dragon bug guy come to my island before so it will probably be easier now.

I kinda want to. I might try to find it online cos the older villagers honestly sound way better. I haven’t even played the old games but the overly optimistic attitude in nh kinda irks me sometimes.

No. 82645

Definitely crafting multiple of an item at once and buying multiple clothes at once (insane time me they overlooked this). Also:
- not being able to use materials directly from storage
- no indicator for item durability
- no quick sort for inventory
- gold tools being able to break
- not being able to customise furniture bought to its alternate colours
- not being able to read or repeat blathers descriptions for donated islands
- tropical fruit (except for coconuts) being cut. Goodbye bananas, durians and lemons.
- getting repeat diy recipes from villagers
- not being able to relocate ramps or bridges
- still being unable to place trees next to structures or rivers even though they implemented a rescue feature of you got stuck

overall am enjoying this game but it does feel much emptier and grindy in comparison, will echo previous statements of colour variants for items being annoying, inventory being whack, no fucking tables whatsoever, etc. no complaints about villagers though wrt interactivity, mine run up to me asking for favours or giving items quite often! the lil animations and singing is very cute too. would like them to be bit more feisty perhaps but hey. ALSO froggy villagers wearing the lil egg shell or sunglasses look so cute

Just want to check out if it's a common thing or it's meant to happen just like once a week. Also, why is K.K here if it's friday? I have a feeling it's because tomorrow there's an event but idk

No. 83014

How can I trade villagers? Sorry for noob question
I got one - Ed. He moved in.

No. 83018

Two visitors around a week apart. One moved in while the other kept declining and I only wanted to fill a house plot before a random moved in. Luckily, Nook Miles island hopping worked out better.
They only show up in the campsite when there's an open housing plot apparently, at least that's my experience.

sorry for samefag but today's K.K. concert is just tragic. 10 stools spread in front of his blocking the resident services door Ed Sheeran guitar ass and not a single villager can be bothered.

and since I misunderstood your question, I've had no campsite villagers since I maxed out housing plots but it's only been five days.

Nope, got one in my island without amiibo and with all my plots full but I didn't like him so I didn't keep him. It took a full week for any camper to show up though.

It's going to happen eventually but I'm not sure I want to get rid of any of my current villagers. Even jock Mac is kind of endearing now, though yesterday he took up the art of the grift.

I got a late start to the game so I didn't have time to get all of the cherry blossom DIYs so I ended up just buying them off someone on eBay. Honestly it worked out well, it was super cheap compared to how much time I would have had to spend on balloon watch.

Anyone know of any etsy shops with homemade cheap-ish amiibo cards/buttons in stock? I rly want Bea and Merengue for my village but all of the etsy and eBay listings are sold out.

No. 83041

Just whatever decorations you're finding (gifts, balloons or tree drops) plus whatever you can craft. It doesn't have to be aesthetically pleasing right now but do try to spread them around the various island sections.

Got the last fucking DIY I wanted. Spend god knows how many hours to get finally the cherry tree branches. Fucking hell. I don't care about the shoulder bag anymore, I have everything else and my eyes just fucking hurt right now. I already have fucking war flashbacks when I hear the balloon sounds. Couldn't play this game because every 5 minutes I had to run like an idiot back and forth at the beach jesus christ. Will trade some cards later tho because I got 2x the wooden floor, 1 x wooden wallpaper, 1 x the picnic one and the 1 x sakura petals pile diy's as dupes. But for now I want a rest and craft shit from my 200 cherry petals.

Makes me wonder what you have to do on earth day to get DIY, if there will be any.

No. 83052


It really ruined the entire event for me. I was really excited about it because your town looks extra cute when the trees are pink and especially the last days with the petals flying around were sooo pretty but I couldn't really enjoy any of that because I had to hunt for everything I wanted, while you got whelmed with those goudy easter event DIY's everywhere. They could let you participate mini games or tasks in order to get these and not looking for them in the most time consuming way EVER. At the same time I still wanted to invest time in my island because I just finally started to make proper progress and built lots of shit but in the last days almost nothing happened because I was busy with the dumb ass balloons wow lol
This wasn't a very wholesome experience lmao

No. 83071

I wish Bunny Day would have just been Fri-Sun max it honestly would have been plenty of time to craft everything. Or just a totally different event where on Easter there was an egg hunt on your island and in the eggs there would be bells, furniture, DIY recipes, etc. I don't even like any of the bunny day stuff, but I ended up crafting everything because I had all of the resources and eggs without even trying to complete it… and there's still 2 days left in the event. I have like 200+ eggs in my storage. Selling the craftables makes decent money though.

I have the opportunity to borrow a switch to play AC, but I was wondering what do I do with my island afterwards. From what I understand, if you go a long time without playing your villagers leave. Should I just delete my island in that case?

I'm terrified of doing this, but I plan to use the Happy Island Designer on github to properly plan out my island. Feels like it'll take a long time but I know I'll ruin it otherwise. I have like 12 different sections I want to do and it'll be a hot mess otherwise.

I only got like 3 of the sakura DIY recipes. I must've popped like 15-20 balloons on fri and sat and not ONE, just coal or money mainly, I was starting to think it was a glitch. Just got the branches, petal pile and pochette. So saddened by it because it all looked so cute.

No. 83120

I bought a copy of New Leaf because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy a Switch just for one game. The only thing is that I don’t have any 3DS friends, so do you just randomly add people from places like Reddit and 4chan to visit their villages?

This egg shit was extra annoying when you wanted to farm materials because you ended getting only stupid eggs and nothing you really needed to craft useful things for you. They could've made it for one weekend or so and not TWO WEEKS.

I also wanted to ask if random villagers stop to appear on your island tours? Because at the beginning I got some by inviting them over but they stopped to be there for some reason?

You can get real money for him if you want. He was going for $100+ for a while on eBay but I think that price has gone down by half now that people are selling hacked Raymonds. He is still the most valuable villager at the moment though.

No. 83399

That reminds me of when NL came out everyone was losing their shit over Marshal. You could trade him for millions of bells on the villager black market lol. Really though I don't see the appeal of everyone having the same villagers.

yeah I might try to trade him for some stuff if the time comes. although, I get pathetically attached to all of my villagers, even the starters I got that I initially hated (rocket and buck). I know I want them to move out because the starter villagers never get nice houses/furnishings apparently but I feel bad… so I will probably start liking raymond

I wanted to try trading on some of the different reddit pages for nook mile items (I want a blue striped lighthouse, amongst other color ways of nook mile items) but I feel like people have such ridiculous requests or want super rare/obscure items in exchange. i'm already behind everyone bc I got a switch end of march and don't have anything people want

No. 83403

It gets complicated when the villager you're missing is the rarest personality type, like uchi/sisterly. You're going to find 30k miles worth of normals on those islands. At least that's my experience.

I really miss Tortimer island in New Leaf and it's turtles and mini-games, but instead we got some John Lennon-wannabe guy… Where u can only take pics. Lame. It was so fun, hopefully they will add it at some point.

No. 83679

So is Tortimer still in the series? That would be such a let down if the devs took him out completely. I never got to play New Leaf but he was such a cute character in the first 3 games. When you first meet him in the village, he asks you who you respect the most and if you choose "my grandpa" he gets so happy. He even started reminding me of my grandpa.

No. 83680

I doubt it… I haven't seen him in New Horizons at all. People thought that he's dead because of a grave in a trailer, but it turned out to be ghost NPCs grave.

In New Leaf, he invites you to visit his Island where he spends time with his family and relaxes. You have to pay 1000 bells every now and then in order to travel there. I really liked the fact how a turtle who helps us to get to Island would always sing a wholesome or funny song and would always say something nice. The island is very tiny, but it's good for catching expensive creatures at night. You can buy island-only furniture or clothing with points that you unlock by playing mini-games with Tortimer (theres about 3 of them), or you could just get a tiny bit of bells by playing 'supermarket' with baby turtle called Leila. There's also a nice turtle grandma who sells stuff. It was one of my fave parts of the game.

Selling turnips seems to be extremely painful no matter what. Unless you have close friends who aren’t going to flood their towns, most people are asking for things like absurd amounts of bells and nook miles tickets. I’ve been seeing people even asking for actual money. I really dislike the /vg/ threads on 4chan because they’re full of obvious underaged dumbasses and coomers but I’ve been getting a ton of free and good DIYs from them and they at least usually don’t charge to sell turnips. At this point, I’m nearing 300 DIY learned thanks to them and also got a ton of spare ones to give to my irl friends.

No. 83739

Would online for a month be worth it for this game? This is pretty much the only online game I have for my switch and there's a few things I want I can't get myself. I don't have anyone added on my firends list because there was no reason to without online, but is it as bad playing with random people this time as it was on New Leaf?

No. 83755

the online aspect is really janky and as opposite of smooth as you can get, but it's pretty much the only way to get certain things if that's important to you.
The game has a large captive audience right now and some of the more edgelordish sometimes take great pleasure in leaving stupid clothing designs in your Able Sisters shop, but it doesn't seem too bad.

If you have the 7 day free trial code for Nintendo Online (it should have come with Animal Crossing) and haven't used one yet, give it a try and go from there.

one of my friends actually brought up the gendered personalities and it made me wish the personality types weren't so strict on structuring based on gender. some overlap would be nice (i.e. lazy females, peppy males). of course, that'd probably require effort on the team in writing more new dialogue so that will never happen.

No. 83870

This. Where did all the outrage over TT come from? Smashfag infiltration? Wether or not you TT doesn't make you better or worse than anyone else and if you think it does you're an insufferable tool who's taking this game way too seriously.

Can villagers ask to come to your house or for you to come to their house like they could in past games? I've only gotten 2 favors so far and they were both "hey go deliver this to x by tomorrow". I miss playing hide and seek with the villagers in city folk.

No. 83871

that will never happen not because it would take effort (why would it? if lazy females existed, they would talk the same way lazy males do now) but because japanese society reinforces gender roles (not that other countries don't, but you know how Asian countries see feminism and female liberation…).

No. 83873

No. 83936

I've been TTing a lot and every time a villager has asked to move out. The general opinion I've seen is that it has been changed from NL so that you have to give your permission for a villager to move out. Along with no more rotting flowers, I think the team are just trying to minimise any punishment for players who don't pick up the game for a while in between game sessions.

No. 83944

nitpick but its annoying that we can't pick up flowers with Y in new leaf and have to use a shovel. Whilst i am terraforming i always forget and go press Y and pick up just the flowers and not the whole thing. It's really frustrating especially when you have to move like 5+ flowers.

yeah I def recommend using happy island designer to plan terraforming, if I couldn't plan it like this I probably wouldn't touch it at all because I don't want to ruin my island.

I'm honestly really in love this game. I've never played AC games before so I don't have reference to it being worse or better than previous ones, I just enjoy it as it is. (I've been playing Pocket Camp like crazy tho but doesn't really count.)

At first I found this to be a bit boring and collecting resources and money felt like repetitive chores, but after I got the shops I got over that feeling. Then when the K.K. concert happened and I got terraforming and I started to invest in turnips (=got money to rearrange shit), and most importantly, when the egg event was over, that's when I really started to LOVE it.

I like the characters and their interactions with each other and me, the island feels alive. Definitely not perfect, there are ton of annoying things that you guys have already pointed out but I still enjoy it. I guess I just really like the creative aspect and the community, I've made AC friends out of strangers and we visit each others islands daily and just have fun.

Thought I'd share this here for anons to enjoy: https://villagerdb.com/

It's a database for (most) available furniture, collectibles and other items in NH at the moment. Since there's no easy way to check when in the shop if you've already bought an item, I've been using this to make a list to catalog everything I have. Much easier then running back to the catalog in-game to check.

You can also use it to create wishlists! Which anons should share here so we could start some in-thread trading :) I'll start, these are the remaining fossils I need to complete my museum: https://villagerdb.com/user/hoppip/list/fossils-needed

No. 84234

Sometimes when you time travel you’ll see one of your villagers thinking and saying “what should I do…”, if you talk to them they’ll say they were thinking about moving and it’ll give you the option to tell them to stay or leave. It’s not always the villager you want to leave so you have to keep time traveling, but I think the chances of it being the villager you want increases if you ignore them a lot. Of course there’s always the option to talk to Isabelle about a villager to get them to leave faster, but I haven’t tried that yet because I feel bad lol.

I wish there was more to the morning announcements. I just get the same 3 or 4 dialogues every day except when there's been a birthday or someone at the campsite. Never had the meteor shower one either even when there's been shooting stars. I get that there isn't a lot to say but even just announcing visitors like CJ/Flick/Saharah would give some variety and actually be useful.

Also, how often are people seeing shooting stars? For the first few days of playing they were pretty much constant every night but I've only seen ~30 since then, and most of those were during a Celeste visit.

I've had four nights of shooting stars but two of them didn't last very long at all, like 30-40 minutes.
On another note I've had two days of rain in however many days it's been since release. Others say they've had a lot more. Probably just RNG for most of it.

No. 84328

I’ve heard that shooting stars can pretty much occur during any clear night you have (and it’s happened for me like that 2-3 times, not very much stars though). When Isabelle says there’s a meteor shower you’re guaranteed a fuckton of shooting stars as opposed to a measly like 25 or so (have also heard that they come in batches but are very slow, I usually wish on about 5 stars when there’s no announcement and then leave because I don’t feel like sitting around waiting for more batches).

No. 84330

Yes still takes the two weeks. Just ignore them.

No. 84341

No they won't move out on their own!

Ignoring them does help prompt dialogue where they think about moving.

I've time travelled from april to September and no one moved out. No one was in boxes either.

No. 84346

it's only half serious but have you tried giving them insulting gifts? bargain bin moths, wharf roaches etc.
I gave Phoebe a moth (she was staring at one fluttering around a light for 20 minutes!) and she didn't seem too fond of the gift. Phoebe asked if she should leave the next week.

No. 84352

the closest i've had to villagers moving out on their own was when i had someone camping in my campsite and i picked the prompts that encouraged them to move in. once i did that, they mentioned that there were no free plots, but then said "but xx mentioned they were thinking about moving out…" and eventually after a few other dialogues the villager i had been ignoring moved out and the camping villager moved into their plot

anyway i'm loving the game and playing all the time, and maybe its just because im time traveling bc ADD and i play too much, but im kinda disappointed by the lack of variety in dialogue. i notice a lot of my villagers say the same things and it makes them seem less individual and fun like they did in previous games. also wish the morning announcements were more varied because i get the same ones all the time. still addicted though so its a minor complaint lol

No. 84366

idk if time travel throws off their development (if they really develop) but my smug villager went from polite and pleasant to using me as a messenger to deliver unflattering clothing to other villagers. He seems disappointed if they decide they like the gift.

Be careful not to walk with tools when attempting to evict your villagers. I just fucked up by attempting to talk to Mira when walking around with a net. Apparently I whacked her on head so good she forgot she wanted to move. Luckily she was still planning to move when I reentered the game after closing without saving, but you never know.

Good!! I remember losing my favorite villager Ed (horse/jock type) because i went on a week long vacation and didnt bring my 3ds and he left when i got home. I was pissed forever about that. Villagers moving out when you arent playing and having a real life outside the game was always bullshit, so i'm glad they changed that.

I've been watching a lot of island tours on youtube because I love seeing what other people are doing, and I notice that a lot of 5 star islands are filled to the brim with furniture, sometimes there's not a single space on the island that hasn't been filled or decorated in some way. Sometimes that looks really good, but what are people going to do when new things get added to the game like new furniture or buildings? gonna have to rework the whole layout of the island?

also does anyone else have this weird hangup where they don't want to terraform in a way that keeps the residents from getting to certain parts of the island? I really like the idea of jumping across stepping stones to get to some areas but then my villagers wouldn't be able to get there and that part of the island would be isolated :/

Many things that Ninji posted in the past has been confirmed so I really, really, REALLY cross my fingers for the bushes and veggies because I really want more nature variety on my island. The lack of bushes really bothered me since I'm one of those people who love the more forest type of towns and my island is pretty much a huge garden at the moment, so this is something I really want.


ty for this anon!


I was just thinking the same thing when I watched video related. It's no doubt super impressive but it's also very full. The guy who made the island said that he will change the layout of it again so I guess those people do change their island as they please when new stuff gets added.

I wasted a huge chunk of land in order to make a winding, foresty path that leads to my campsite but regret nothing because it looks fucking great.

I don’t have any wide stretches of space to dedicate to an orchard anymore which makes me sort of sad, but then I think about how I don’t really need one anymore lol. Not for fruit selling at least, since I’m rich from the stalk market, paid off my house, and only ever pay to move buildings around (and everything is pretty much set now). I guess it would be nice to have an organized orchard to make collecting wood easier, but having neat little rows of trees feels so inorganic and goes against the feel I’m going for. My forest path has trees thrown around randomly with lots of flowers so wood collecting is such a pain in the ass but I guess this is the price I have to pay for ~*~*~aesthetic~*~*~. How do you anons have your orchards set up, if you have any?

I had Admiral move in, I talked to him like normal and didn't ignore him or anything and he wanted to move out 2 days later. Idk why but it doesn't necessarily take 2 weeks and they might do it on their own without ignoring or annoying them. I think there is a random component

i also had random people get the thought bubble and ask if they should move out even though i talk to all of them all the time. it was usually around 2 week mark, give or take. so they don't really move out on their own, you gotta let them…which i think is to minimize the punishment if you don't play for a while?

A friend of mine is in a acnh group and someone had Colton moving out. I almost was about to go to bed when I saw her message but immediately hopped on to plop down a new housing plot (have been saving one for if this would happen haha) and went to this person’s island. It’s so stupid and lame but I really got emotional seeing him in this game and now I finally get to have him on my new island!!!! New Leaf was my first game, and I didn’t really know about the villagers or that there were ones who were more popular than others. I played played on my cousin’s copy over winter break before she eventually just gave me the copy (because she saw how much I loved the game lol) and I never restarted because I grew so attached to all the villagers already living there, and Colton especially was my best friend in NL. I’ve been so determined to get him, and tomorrow he’s coming home!!

I’m going to eventually move his home next to mine and put down a nice rose garden for us. I’m so stupidly happy. I’m gonna treat my friend out to one of our favorite food spots when quarantine is over because she was able to find him for me (and of course I left the person I got him from a tip!!! money is no object when it comes to my sweet boy!)

I finally dipped my toe into terraforming, the goal was to extend a tiny bit of cliff slightly so I could line a staircase up against the cliff itself so as to not jut out into my planned fruit orchard.
