This comes out a few days after my birthday. I better get gifted this or someone in my house is losing a limb.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 19 February 2020 04:15 (one year ago) link

My daughter was mostly into this this morning, but she also thought the game looked like more work than previous iterations.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 20 February 2020 15:54 (one year ago) link

this comes out ON my birthday and getting ever deeper into debt with tom nook and his growing family of goons and usurers is my fondest bday wish

adam, Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:04 (one year ago) link

more work

ever deeper into debt

i see that i have chosen the perfect time of my life to finally get into animal crossing

But guess what? Nobody gives a toot!😂 (Karl Malone), Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:11 (one year ago) link

does the game have some sort of lofty goal that seems attainable at first but becomes more and more impossible as the game progresses? if so, SOLD

But guess what? Nobody gives a toot!😂 (Karl Malone), Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:12 (one year ago) link

i think your debt payments get progressively larger if that counts

ciderpress, Thursday, 20 February 2020 16:16 (one year ago) link

:D oh yes, that counts

all dumb adult jokes aside, i am pretty excited to try it out. regardless of what the longtime fans think of this new entry, i'm pretty sure i'll be very happy with whatever they came up with.

I think my fave part of this game - heck, of a lot of nintendo games now I think on it - is the fishing. I fuckin hate fishing IRL but in games it is nice and peaceful.

(Was so bummed they had no fishing in BOTW even though fish were an integral part of the recipes)

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Sunday, 23 February 2020 22:08 (one year ago) link

You could catch fish with your bare hands! Or blow them out of the water.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 23 February 2020 22:42 (one year ago) link

JRPG needs fishing. https://t.co/jKDNRzesIj

I usually electrocuted them with a few shock arrows and waded in and collected the corpses.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 24 February 2020 03:22 (one year ago) link

That's how I do it in real life.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 24 February 2020 03:26 (one year ago) link

(I just googled "fishing with lighting" and got some hits of a fishing boat struck by lighting and the like. Reminds me of one of my kids years ago asking, as kids are wont to do, if a tornado had ever hit a train. I googled that, too, and what do you know, found an incredible video of a mounted train camera catching the train getting hit and then derailed by a tornado. The internet is terrible, but it is also awesome.)

no more new videogames for me, for a while. :(

but that's ok, maybe i can revisit one of literally dozens (hundreds?) of games where i got about 30 hours in and quit

Karl Malone, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:02 (one year ago) link

like, my witcher dude is still currently new to the region of novigrad, i think

Karl Malone, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:03 (one year ago) link

i have a lot of expectations for this. how many players can make characters? i have 4 potential players in this house and foresee many many months of gameplay ahead.

Mordy, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:14 (one year ago) link

every account on your switch gets their own character, i think theres a max of 8 accounts. you share an island if you're on the same system

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:18 (one year ago) link

This game is going to occupy my younger daughter so much that she won't even know that the epidemic has ended.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 19 March 2020 22:50 (one year ago) link

i think that is the plan for many people in the world

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 March 2020 23:32 (one year ago) link

if I could somehow arrange to do my actual job from within Animal Crossing that'd be ideal

silby, Thursday, 19 March 2020 23:36 (one year ago) link

I have two switches in my house. I bought one digital copy of AC. How does that work?

rb (soda), Thursday, 19 March 2020 23:59 (one year ago) link

you can install it on both but you can only play it on one switch at a time

ciderpress, Friday, 20 March 2020 00:05 (one year ago) link

and your save is tied to the console so you'll have a different island on each afaik

ciderpress, Friday, 20 March 2020 00:07 (one year ago) link

Popped into the local JB Hifi to pick up a copy this morning and the place had a small knot of nerds hovering at thr doors til they opened who all dashed in and grabbed their preorders.

...I felt so old!

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 20 March 2020 00:23 (one year ago) link

Day one: need to drag my daughter away from the game for lunch. She loves it so far, though.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 20 March 2020 17:46 (one year ago) link

i've finished the tutorial stuff but haven't figured out what i want to do next

little doses is correct

It’s fun to talk to folks after you’ve been stung by wasps

El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 March 2020 22:50 (one year ago) link

My daughter has already described it as a once a day sort of game.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:44 (one year ago) link

i had a great time with it earlier, can't wait to pick it up again tomorrow morning. a house upgrade is coming tomorrow, as well as a new pair of eyeglasses! my island is called Boneyarden.

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:47 (one year ago) link

i also got stung, and sold the wasp nest before realizing i needed it to craft medicine, before realizing i could just buy medicine

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:47 (one year ago) link

because it runs on real time you can't really marathon it any more than you can marathon cooking dinner or whatever

ciderpress, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:48 (one year ago) link

my daughter got the house upgrade today, and the axe and all sorts of other crap. she's a pro

I caught a squid tho

El Tomboto, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:51 (one year ago) link

also made myself some dope USA USA face paint

El Tomboto, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:51 (one year ago) link

i also made weird face paint

this game rules tbh, i'm not glad i didn't play it before, but i'm glad to have my first time be right now

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:52 (one year ago) link

i will invite people over to my island as soon as i figure out how to do it (unlock it) and spruce the place up a bit

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 00:53 (one year ago) link

So is that how online works? You make your island, and you can invite internet people over? Does it still work on that follow the leader system, though? Where everyone basically has to do what you do and go where you go and work toward your goals?

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 22 March 2020 02:30 (one year ago) link

Also, what weirdly great timing for the release of this game. Forget the Chinese and the CIA, I'm beginning to think this virus was designed by Nintendo.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 22 March 2020 02:42 (one year ago) link

the cost of this virus will never drop

latin hypercube in shitspace (Sufjan Grafton), Sunday, 22 March 2020 03:26 (one year ago) link

the follow the leader system is for local multiplayer where you have one screen. online you can just do whatever on the other players islands, you can't change/destroy/steal their stuff though

ciderpress, Sunday, 22 March 2020 03:55 (one year ago) link

one thing i was surprised by: tonight my partner joined my island. i thought she'd see my avatar walking around, but i'm gone! is that normal, or is that just because it's the first night for both of us? it was just kind of weird, like...why would be my tent and possessions be there, but my character is absent from the island?

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 04:28 (one year ago) link

Man oh man is the online visitor system in Animal Crossing disruptive. 8 slots and each time someone either enters or exits everyone on the host island comes to a complete stop for like 35-90 seconds. Just spent 10 minutes trying to get off a friend’s popular island!

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:22 (one year ago) link

so you can only visit while friends are online? how do you keep the airport open for people to come by when you aren't playing?

El Tomboto, Monday, 23 March 2020 02:09 (one year ago) link

the whole game takes place in the pre-object permanence stage of development, i guess

Karl Malone, Monday, 23 March 2020 02:26 (one year ago) link

U guys know you can avoid the wasps if yr quick rite - run (walk and spam b) to the nearest doorway and go inside!

And yeah as far as I can tell going onto other ppls islands only works if you open your gates while playing. Oh! and you have to have a paid Nintendo account too, as me and Nick found out yesterday (luckily I'd already just done a family plan cos of Minecraft).

My game playing time is quite limited as I have a six month old to look after (plus lockdown, etc) - it’s quite likely I’ll only find time to play once every few days or once a week. Does that mean I’ll miss things as time passes by or will it still worl&/

i do have a rotating wall fan going 24/7, immediately adjacent to a wood burning oven, though

Karl Malone, Monday, 23 March 2020 14:12 (one year ago) link

hey IIIIIIII, i haven't tried out the AC patterns thing yet, but do i need to unlock something within New Horizons first? from the FAQ:

How do I use this thing?

Click a color on the 3x5 palette and then just "draw" on one of the pattern representations. All of the zoom levels are drawable and they will all update at the same time. When you want to import to ACNL, simply scan the QR code at the bottom using the QR machine at the Able Sisters in-game. Don't have the QR machine yet? Talk to the quiet sister in the back for 10 days in a row to unlock it. The download ACNL file button lets you save the pattern to your computer for later use. You can also upload ACNL files or images containing QR codes. Not all images will always scan correctly since QR code reading is somewhat of an iffy thing, but we're always working on improving accuracy.

the faq is discussing New Leaf, so i'm guessing there's a newer process. sorry, noob questions here

Karl Malone, Monday, 23 March 2020 15:03 (one year ago) link

oh shit, duh!

An Animal Crossing pattern tool called ACPatterns.com, created by designers Thulinma, DamSenViet and Myumi, lets you convert any image into Animal Crossing itself via the magic of a QR code (you then use the official companion app to scan QR codes into the game).

sorry, forgot to read the damn manual. cool! i don't even have that app yet!

mine should be completed today! looking forward to checking in on it.

the iron nuggets x30 task is taking me a while to complete. i make the rounds every day with my shovel, but usually only pick up 5 or 6 per go around, tops.

i got hopped up on native pears early on and destroyed several of my large rocks, so i'm thinking maybe i permanently destroyed a few of them? (not sure about that)

i got desperate the other day and buried a small rock in the ground. hopefully it'll somehow grow into a large rock.

maybe you can provide the necessary supplies and leave them for her? i haven't tried it yet but can you just drop the items on the ground near the museum-spot without them disappearing?

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:55 (one year ago) link

yes, probably. i can also just tell her she needs to do the stuff. first step is giving tom nook 5 critters. the problem was that until i did some research to figure out how to unlock the museum i didn't even realize this was a thing bc it doesn't come up as an option when i talk to to nook. (also i now see why she has cooler stuff than me -- like the other island residents give her DIY recipes but they've never given them to me probably bc they know i'm just a tertiary player chump.)

it's the "pre-museum" phase that the Island Representative has to do, you have to give Tom Nook 5 things to invite Blathers.

i think i would be a very bad parent because i think my first instinct would be to bribe the child irl to do the thing you want her to do in the game

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 17:28 (one year ago) link

yeah the first couple days of the game have some railroaded stuff that you have to do to open things up and i think after that the primary player stops mattering as much

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 25 March 2020 18:48 (one year ago) link

should i post the only negative take i've seen so we can tear it down?

We are all seeking an escape. It’s that desperate need for the world to slow down, for the people to take a minute, for Republicans to develop an ounce of compassion, Democrats to grow any sort of backbone, and all us schmucks with zero power to just...take a goddamn breath. Animal Crossing, a game where you join a bunch of anthropomorphic animals on an island, is literally a virtual escape from the world. When you show up ready to board the plane that’s what the two little raccoons even tell you. Animal Crossing is meant to be the balm to our anxiety riddled little lives. Only it sucks beyond measure.

I am not unfamiliar with Animal Crossing. I definitely ignored my friends for hours while they played it and I smoked vodka-spiked hookah back in like 2005 (don’t do that). I gamely checked it out on the Nintendo DS and gave up when I missed like two days of gameplay and all my in-game friends abandoned me (don’t do that either). I even spent some time with the mobile version of it a few years ago. Most things are pretty consistent from incarnation to incarnation.

You are a human in a world of cartoon animals that speak in a digital rhythm that Nintendo translates into human-speak in text bubbles below them. You collect fruit and bugs and rocks. You build stuff. You go into massive debt to a bunch of raccoons and work all day and night to pay off that debt.

Which is really my problem with this game. Right now the real world we’d all like a vacation from is run by capitalists with no concept of beneficial socialism. Powerful men and women think a single $1,200 check will make up for months and months of lost income. These people will gladly give trillions to billion-dollar corporations but let hospitals languish. People starve and children go uneducated.

The world is already run by the raccoons so why on Earth would I want to deal with them in a game?

Animal Crossing isn’t the only real-life sim that puts you into a grind similar to the one you probably experience in the actual world day-to-day. Games like The Sims and Stardew Valley can absolutely feel like work. You get up. You work your butt off. You welcome the sweet release of sleep at the end of the day.

But those games are a lot less aggressively simulacrums of the capitalism you’re forced to reckon with daily. By forcing you into a long term and unwilling relationship with a landlord/loanshark raccoon, Animal Crossing is a closer reminder of the world we’re living in. At a moment when so many folks are clamoring for a rent freeze, the last thing I want to do is head into a simulation where that’s not even close to a possibility.

My many friends and co-workers would claim that I should just play Animal Crossing more (Gizmodo Editor in Chief Kelly Bourdet told me not to write this blog until I’d played for at least a week). They would say I should embrace the best-loved feature of the game—seamlessly traveling to your real-life friends’ island to hang out or wreck their own digital limbos.

But I didn’t want real-life people in my real-life house before a highly contagious pandemic made standing close or touching hands a veritable Victorian scandal. Why would I want you on the overgrown island that I am but a serf inhabiting?

So, even though I’ve only played 5 minutes of the game and done little more than erect a tent on a patch of land I do not own, I can safely say Animal Crossing sucks and Stardew Valley rulez.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Thursday, 26 March 2020 05:12 (one year ago) link

the "i only played it for five minutes" stuff is trolling, but as an animal crossing newbie i did find it mildly shocking to start up the game and immediately be in debt and charged with paying your way out of it. you don't have to pay it off, sure, if you want to live in a tent for the whole game, but not advancing/improving is antithetical to playing a video game. what i find dumb is how many articles/tweets/whatever comment on the capitalistic aspects of the game like the author is the one giving a cheeky adult take on it, when the satire/commentary is obviously intentional and part of the game.

na (NA), Thursday, 26 March 2020 14:04 (one year ago) link

the whole game is about buying stuff, which is easy but puts you deeper into debt to the nooks, vs. doing it yourself, which is slightly harder but keeps you outside of the nook inc. monopoly. it's not subtle

na (NA), Thursday, 26 March 2020 14:07 (one year ago) link

Yep. They could have skipped all that and just said “buy an upgrade for your house for 99,000 bells!” and it wouldn’t change the gameplay at all. They made it a loan so they could make funny jokes about landlord/tenant/capitalism stuff that would fly over the heads of children

i put D to work i told her if she's going to be player one she has responsibilities and she can't do the fun stuff she wants to do until she labors doing the unlocks so that the rest of the family can enjoy the game. i'm considering this a meta-level explication and analysis for her of the capitalist themes already present in the game.

And don’t even get me started on how passive-aggressive some of the island’s citizens can be. (They should’ve called this game Crossing Animals, amirite?

"New Horizons marked the point where AC became mainstream enough for actual interior designers to start playing it, and they promptly ruined it for everybody else".

JimD, Wednesday, 1 April 2020 09:37 (one year ago) link

“I feel shabby and inadequate,” says player Devon Gozjolko, who spoke with Polygon over email — alongside dozens of other players — about what it’s like to see other Animal Crossing fans share elaborate designs on social media.

“Every time I get on Twitter I see posts from both friends and internet people I follow who have these either incredibly ornate or certifiably insane setups on their island, and it honestly feels terrible, like, who did I think I was buying this game?” says New Horizons player Patrick LaBelle.

I watch my daughter play this, and I keep asking her, can you do a), can you do b), and so on, and she keeps saying no. But how cool would it be to float up on balloons and just get an aerial view of your island? Or build a boat just to fish at sea? Or craft a raft to make a floating river? These sorts of things seem like fun.

Right now she's as frustrated as anyone with the bunny shit. Sometimes you just want to fish, right? Someone online somewhere noted how a better solution might have been to make the bunny an optional bunny suit you could wear, and you can only harvest eggs etc. when you're wearing it. Otherwise you're just stuck finding/catching eggs for egg crafts that not everyone may want to do or have. Like my non-easter celebrating daughter.

If you wanna game the system in the future there are apps that can predict your prices based on trend:

nice

bunny day sucks

i have no motivation to get the special bunny day prize (from crafting a bunch of bunny shit) because the prize will probably be bunny-themed, and there's no way i'm ever using it

let me be your friend on the other end! (Karl Malone), Monday, 6 April 2020 15:49 (one year ago) link

i foolishly out of some completionist impulse maybe (or more likely just bc i had all these eggs from doing other things) made all the bunny day outfits. they're all the same, they're all ugly, they're all filling up my wardrobe whose good idea was this

Mordy, Monday, 6 April 2020 15:51 (one year ago) link

i mean...you could build a bunny day horror room, like really go out with it but give it really spooky lighting and flooring

let me be your friend on the other end! (Karl Malone), Monday, 6 April 2020 15:55 (one year ago) link

other than that, it seems designed for the subset of people who really enjoy the aesthetic qualities of easter. pink and pale blue. oof

let me be your friend on the other end! (Karl Malone), Monday, 6 April 2020 15:56 (one year ago) link

id fuck with pink and pale blue if more things were jsut those colours. its that every item is all six damn colours it's too much

i will likely make a room on easter and also throw in a stegosaur skull in the center

give it really spooky lighting and flooring

sadly there are actually bunny floor and bunny lamp objects so if you do it the way they want there's little room for grand guignoling this shit

megan thee macallan 18 year (||||||||), Friday, 10 April 2020 09:29 (one year ago) link

I managed to get my first few star fragments, the process is sort of awful because you need to look up and press A when you hear the quiet jingle that a shooting star makes, you really don't get much time to do it and YOU NEED EMPTY HANDS or else the "wishing on a star" thing doesn't trigger. Which means trying to listen out for these and react to them as you're going about your normal fishing/bug catching business isn't an option really, if you've got a rod or a net equipped when you hear that jingle, chances are you'll have missed it by the time you've put your tool away.

Feels instead like you need to make a point of aimlessly strolling around while you wait for these to trigger, which just isn't much fun.

JimD, Friday, 10 April 2020 10:19 (one year ago) link

yeah I had celeste in my town the other night, saw a few shooting stars drop but couldn't trigger the wish animation so just gave up. lame

megan thee macallan 18 year (||||||||), Friday, 10 April 2020 10:22 (one year ago) link

wishing on shooting stars is easy. when you see one, press down on the d-pad to put your tool away, tilt the camera up to the sky, and wait for more shooting stars because whenever one goes by there will be several more coming soon after

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Friday, 10 April 2020 13:07 (one year ago) link

Yeah I saw a ton go by one after another but didn’t know what I was supposed to do. Oh well.

El Tomboto, Friday, 10 April 2020 13:25 (one year ago) link

Also you can't wish if you aren't standing - I was sitting on the bench in the plaza through a bunch of them. Can you make stuff from the fragments or are they not worth hoarding in storage? I also got some fragments of Aries and now want an ACNH/Katamari mashup.

Jaq, Friday, 10 April 2020 13:25 (one year ago) link

you can use them to make a wand that lets you change outfits anywhere. i'm not sure if there's anything else you can make with them. they glow and look cool in your house

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Friday, 10 April 2020 13:40 (one year ago) link

you can just take a time out and stare up at the sky for like 5 minutes and "wish" on like 30 of them. they're super common when it's one of those nights.

circa1916, Friday, 10 April 2020 14:05 (one year ago) link

I got a recipe for an aries Rocking horse thingy from Celeste which you can use them for, guessing there'll be 12 of those through the year.

Didn't realise they came in batches, that's good to know. I've tried the "look up for 5 mins" thing many times though without seeing anything until last night (when celeste was visiting, as it happens - is she the trigger for high frequency shooting stars?)

JimD, Friday, 10 April 2020 14:27 (one year ago) link

i'm not sure if i actually like or enjoy this game

na (NA), Friday, 10 April 2020 14:37 (one year ago) link

I have yet to see any shooting stars, despite multiple clear nights, lovely full moons and a celeste visit. I dont play at night much, maybe I'm not being patient.

If you stand staring at the sky is it pointless? I guess I was thinking lilke botw where that guarantees you seeing one. Ive had better luck with the stars in new leaf than in this!

Doing the fishing tourney today. Not sure if worth it so far - its not like the old version where you could game it by sniping at 5 mins to 6 with a giant eel or whatever. This ones a timed event (like the old island comps used to be). So far all Ive won is my own fish esky :/

I didnt persist with the fishing tourney as much as I shouldve - missed out on getting any trophys. I did get the cooler, doorplate and tackle bag.

Now I'm onto egg day! I have ONE more recipe to craft that I dont own. I guess I have to wait for it to show up in a balloon at this point? Ugh. Oh and all the extra eggs? All they seem to result in is you give them to him and he makes egg baskets. Thats it. They do sell for 1200 bells though.

Its a game of long er... game. You pick it up and poke at it here and there each day or even few days. but the idea is to keep at it over a whole year so you get all the seasons, festivals, etc. It isnt a rush to the goal game.

El Tomboto, Monday, 20 April 2020 22:59 (one year ago) link

trayce: yeah, i think i’ve been going a bit hard with the grind and it’s become monotonous

tomboto: i’ve just started doing that too, ticking off the basic daily stuff (plant a money tree, build a new bridge/incline, use the nook terminal)

karmic blowback for dissing pip and jane baker (Autumn Almanac), Monday, 20 April 2020 23:14 (one year ago) link

it’s easier to enjoy in small doses since I’m not the main player on the island and therefore don’t have Nook giving me a bunch of extra tasks like all that campsite fuss

El Tomboto, Monday, 20 April 2020 23:16 (one year ago) link

What I love about it: do the things & get the things - whack trees/get wood chunks, whack rocks/get...stuff - but also the tiny bits of unpredictability: wasps' nests, fossils, random campers, visitors, and turnip prices. The attention to detail in the museum. I could sit in the butterfly room for many long minutes happily. I can fish for so long just watching the water. But it's 30 min in the morning and maybe an hour in the evening and that's plenty.

Jaq, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 00:08 (one year ago) link

Yeah the little details are tremendous. When its raining you can see rain hitting the outside of the windows when inside. Fans make plants move. Ive noticed some days are much windier than others.

For me too, the new part I am enjoying (as someone who's played AC on and off for like 15 years, yikes) is being able to remake/remodel the whole town!

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 00:11 (one year ago) link

do you have to do a thing to trigger the turnip lady showing up on Sundays? Cause the Nook boys have their whole turnip spiel and refuse to talk about them on Sundays but I haven't seen the lady who actually sells them yet?

Ugh. I mean as someone who only manages to play this maybe 30 mins a day and who isn’t time travelling or chasing crazy turnip prices on reddit or doing any of the other exploits Nintendo seem to be getting pissy about, moves like this make me reluctant to carry on picking it up at all. Making my game slower and more grindy because someone else got rich faster than you wanted them to is such a weird bullshit way to treat your core users.

I guess I’m not too worried about it because you can make enough bells to the point of bells being almost meaningless through the turnip/Reddit axis, but yeah, can understand it being annoying for a casual player not wanting to deal with that.

megan thee macallan 18 year (||||||||), Saturday, 25 April 2020 10:25 (one year ago) link

Fishing, tending flowers, catching bugs, and chatting with neighbors don’t seem aggressively capitalist. It seems like you’re only focused on the “mechanics” as far as raking in bells are involved.

I’m only interested in bells to the extent they can be used to build infrastructure really, and I’m fine with taking that gradually. I think I’ll take my 42K net turnip revenues and leave the gambling to others.

El Tomboto, Saturday, 25 April 2020 15:11 (one year ago) link

And that’s cool. Me too. I did the Turnip hustle one week. Easily ignorable if it’s not your bag.

The comical capitalist pain undercurrent is not remotely a hot take on my part, but also easily ignorable.

circa1916, Saturday, 25 April 2020 15:37 (one year ago) link

I think Redd's first painting's always gonna be legit cos you need it to give to Blathers and start the museum off. After that it seems it'll be the same as previous games - look for the slight off details, to tell if its faek.

I never play turnips unless theyre around 90 or less. Its a silly aside.

What Im sick of now is I have so many DIY cards that I have 2 or more of and you cant store them, and if you drop them on the ground like I did with my fleamarket, you get pinged for "mess" in the Tidy Town stats. I ended up selling them all, just to get rid of the bloody things.

If anyone has any of the exotic/asian style or classic style dark wood furnitures btw let me know. I will pay good bell.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 27 April 2020 01:54 (one year ago) link

we went to my coworker's island yesterday and it's very well organized with beautiful straight sidewalks between all the houses, floral decorations, a spa area, etc. and my kid basically threw a tantrum bc our island is kind of chaotic and it costs 50,000 bells to move each house if we want to fix it so they were demanding that we all contribute large sums of bells so they can rearrange our whole island. long story short, never go to anyone else's island, especially if they apparently have endless amounts of time to play animal crossing

AC is determinedly clunky in a lot of ways. There’s so much that could be streamlined, but they’ve more/less just kinda stuck with the original blueprint. I hover somewhere between admiring the disciplined asceticism and cursing it depending on the activity and my mood.

At a mere ten days, Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ cherry blossom season is woefully short. Many players didn’t manage to find all the accompanying DIY recipes during that time frame. Players could time travel so that they don’t have to wait nearly a year to get another chance. But there’s another option. You just have to be willing to drop a ton of bells.

Nookazon, the leading Animal Crossing marketplace, launched an “auction” feature in early May that lets players bid on items of interest. A Nookazon representative tells Polygon that, so far, the biggest auction on the site was over a bundle of 100 cherry blossom petals. Initially posted at 10,000 bells, the auction closed with a bid of a whopping 2.8M bells.

The price point, while outrageous, makes sense. Most players aren’t in early spring anymore, meaning that items belonging to that season are now rare and therefore open to be sold at a premium. Anyone who had the foresight to stock up on their seasonal crafting materials, rather than using them up, can now sell them at a huge profit. The wider pricing trends just two days ago saw a single petal hit a high of 40,000 bells — though Nookazon lists the “average” price at 25,000.

Ha I got the KarenHorse to move out too. The trick is to not talk to them/send them letters. Its rude but eh. She was replaced by a rastafarian looking sheep with a hamburger for a hat.

I hadnt seen Redd at all since the museum got its gallery wing which is weird, he doesnt seem to have a set day he shows up, so I've only the 2 paintings so far. Then on Friday a villager just randomly strolls up and says "hey fren have this gift" and gave me a freaking legit painting!?

I wonder if the game felt sorry for me cos Id missed redd or something.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Sunday, 10 May 2020 21:50 (one year ago) link

I've been wondering that about Redd - I got one real painting and a fake winged victory statue that I sat outside the museum surrounded by rosebushes and haven't seen him since.

I'm gonna have to keep more of an eye out for his shanty boat up the back of the island I guess - maybe after those first 2 he doesnt come onto land?

Seems it might actually be a known issue, possibly related to tt? But I havent tt - well not strictly speaking anyway. I do sometimes alter the clock but only to "catch up" if I didnt play modt of the prev day - I never go back past already-played time, but maybe that still counts :(

His boat was noted on the map when he was there, so I'm hoping that's always the case. His landing is near my campsite, but I don't usually climb up the cliffs when I'm there.

and you get one fresh rock respawn a day :(

Nhex, Thursday, 14 May 2020 23:26 (one year ago) link

yeah, I screwed up the rock bit for the first two days

one of the first tips in the game is about eating fruit to smack things, which is incredibly misleading

mh, Thursday, 14 May 2020 23:30 (one year ago) link

Even if you smash a rock, it will come back the next day somewhere else! but maximize your rock bashing with a flimsy or stone ax or shovel (and no fruit consumption) to get up to 8 things (the most I can ever get is 6). Having a toilet for fruit pooping is my #1 goal right now - I used one on a friend's island after eating 10 apples and the music was hilarious. Her's fell out of a tree.

I had a ridiculously proud moment yesterday when I actually caught a wasp instead of letting it sting the crap out of me.

Jaq, Thursday, 14 May 2020 23:55 (one year ago) link

Theres a trick to wasp catching. Shake every tree while holding a net, facing the tree (ie facing "north" I guess?). If a waspnest pops out, you'll automatically face the right way when you startle, just hit A when that happens and you'll catch the wasp easily.

Other method (which does not catch the wasp but at least shoos it off) is to pop a popper in its face.

To get the most out of rocks, dig a hole or 2 behind you so oyu dont bounce away. You wanna do this especially in case you get the bell rock of course.

When you dig up that glowy spot? Re-bury the bells in the glowy hole, and you get a bell tree 3 days later.

And one more tip some may not know: when crafting, hit A a few times instead of once, and it speeds the damn thing up.

The hole digging trick for rock smacking is what I was referring to, it’s probably best to look up a video of someone doing it, you gotta position yourself just right.

I usually just book it when wasps attack and get far enough away to pull my net out and nab em, I still get stung sometimes though.

• 10k-99k🔔: 70% chance of 3x 10k🔔, 30% chance of 3x the amount you buried
• The game decides this the moment you bury the 🔔!

porlockian solicitor (Karl Malone), Friday, 15 May 2020 14:40 (one year ago) link

The way I know: have between 10 - 20k in your pockets already. Dig up shiny spot. Go to pockets. Go to the bells thing in the lower left and A. It will let you make a 10k bag. Do that and then plant it. Don't put the original shiny spot bells away until after you plant the 10k bag.

Afaict my daughter lost interest in this game really quickly, which is disappointing. I know there's a bunch of stuff she hasn't unlocked yet, and from what I can tell she only has a 1 star island (which is bad?), but she seems reluctant to grind away to get enough bells to build enough stuff to better her rating and so on. I had ordered the game for her pre-lockdown, but I was still really hoping it would have kept her busier. I guess it's just not as compelling as inane Tik Tok clips.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:26 (one year ago) link

I know Trayce! I was watched him do that, I asked him if he was sure that the bells were meant for him and I told him he'd better give them back! Sorry about that, he didn't mean to steal, he genuinely thought they were meant for him,

Was I supposed to tip you? Sorry but I don't know the etiquette of selling turnips on other peoples islands

nate woolls, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:34 (one year ago) link

Noooo, I dont know why my other frind (the guy dressed as a widower in the big black hat) was doing that but I gather he was making millions from turnip selling - hes been playing it a bit obessively. He made like 5 trips back and forth to offload all his neeps, lord knows how he'd been storing them.

But nah my only rules are basically leave a penny take a penny with the flea market I had set up there - take anything, feel free to leave something in its place.

yeah, i read that article the other day! it just seems like i'm having bad luck .

so, here’s the tea on #ACNH NPC spawns

every week, you’re guaranteed to get Saharah, Kicks and Leif on weekdays (if you meet their criteria, e.g. having Able Sisters built)

that leaves two weekday slots that will be randomly filled by Gulliver, Label, CJ, Flick or Redd

— Ninji 🇪🇺🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇬🇮 (@_Ninji) May 14, 2020

Players will see Leif, Kicks, and Saharah every week. There are two days a week where none of them appear; those days will be randomly filled with Flick, CJ, Gulliver, Label, or Redd.

if i understand that correctly, it means that each week i should have a 40% chance of seeing Redd (2 free weekdays where Redd has a 20% chance of appearing). i think it's been 3 weeks since i've seen him? probability of that happening is very satanic (0.6 * 0.6 * 0.6 = .216, or 21.6%)

Karl Malone, Thursday, 21 May 2020 15:41 (one year ago) link

(for those keeping score at home, that should mean the probability of seeing Redd three weeks in a row is 6.4% (40% chance three weeks in a row = 0.4 * 0.4 * 0.4 = .064).

we put our switch on pacific time from now on. which is extra good bc my partner works an evening shift and stuff's still open when she clocks out at 11

In New Leaf you could tell Isabelle whether you were an early, regular or late riser and then the schedule of everyone in the town would adjust to accommodate your preferences. Booted that game up again this week and I was surprised how many little quality of life things like that I’d forgotten about, which have been inexplicably dropped for New Horizons.

Southern users: anyone ever found more than one truffle? Theyre clearly rare (10k each!) but I did think I'dve found more than ONE by now.

one thing i do a lot of in this game is craft or buy wallpapers that seem cool in the abstract but become nightmarishly garish as soon as they're in a room with furniture or anything in it

so then i go back to the same three wallpapers i've used basically since i started the game

Truffles yeah they come as part of the fall mushroom set so yeah you need a few to make a couple of the DIY seasonal pieces.

I'm very excited for fall now! I hope you can only dig them up under hardwood trees when one of your dog or pig neighbors is near :D

I keep catching those gigantic oarfish! I gasp every time I land one - so huge! Really glad they don't wriggle.

Jaq, Saturday, 23 May 2020 12:46 (one year ago) link

i say this in a positive way: i can't believe i'm still playing this every day!

i haven't played a game this consistently, for weeks at a time, in a very long time. it really helps that the game is designed so that you can do your "chores" in about 20 minutes or less, but also can spend much longer if you feel like it

Karl Malone, Saturday, 23 May 2020 16:43 (one year ago) link

yes, that's how i've enjoyed it too. it's pleasant checking in and completing a few satisfying tasks everyday as incremental progress towards a long-term goal. tbh it helps me keep some basic irl stuff in perspective b/c i'm historically bad at sticking to healthy routines. a little exercise here, a little creative pursuit there, i'm not a failure if i don't accomplish what i want all at once, etc.

yeah, same! the other day, i had a ton of bells, enough to finally do a shit ton of infrastructure week on the Boneyarden (my e-home and spiritual rejuvenation center). and it was nice, in a way, when fucking tom nook let me know that i could only build one new infrastructure item per day! that little construction dude in the hat isn't going to do two in a day! calm down! sometimes i need to be forced to do that

My critter neighbors threw me a birthday party this morning and it was honestly fun and touching. I love giving them stuff and seeing them use/wear it :)

Not doing turnips the past few weeks has let me enjoy playing more - less anxiety/stress about checking am/pm for prices etc. I've got one or two more inclines to build. Thinking about relocating my house to the alpine highland.

So *scans thread* that was a month between visits. Ugh! I'll never finish my museum this way :(

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 5 June 2020 00:19 (one year ago) link

he's visited me once to introduce himself, and once with the boat. unless I missed him by not traversing the whole island, which is possible

it's really a game to take as it comes

mh, Friday, 5 June 2020 00:23 (one year ago) link

Once he's done the boat visit you wont see him on the island and I think that might be what tripped me up last time (and its interesting that an islander handed me a painting - I reckon he went and got it for me lol)

The thing to do is keep an eye on your map. When Redd is in town a sort of leaf in a circle icon will appear over wherever the "secret beach" is on yr island.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Saturday, 6 June 2020 05:35 (one year ago) link

i can confirm that is true - transplanting means no new shoots.
but even when i've done it the right way - growing a fresh shoot into a bamboo tree, then a new shoot pops lies underground - i don't think it ever does it again, which is... unfortunate. especially for those recipes that require the shoots

a quick google will tell you everything you need to know and give you a tool that will make you rich, if you want to do it. it's kind of weird because once you know it's there, it kind of ruins the whole thing.

My 13-year old daughter has afaict totally abandoned this, which is annoying, since I bought it for her and she was really into "City Folk" on the Wii. I should ask her what she liked about that one that she doesn't like about this one, but I think she finds a lot of the denizens she has to deal with in this iteration annoying, and I know she is irked that she can't interact with any of the shit she accumulates. So, awesome, she has a pool, but ... it just sits there. Which I think means all she can do is BS busywork to tidy up her island to attract people she doesn't want, which is not doing it for her. I guess I'd rather her snooze out of Animal Crossing and spend time outside then not go outside because she is too into Animal Crossing.

Mordy, if you have some patience and are cool with visiting a stranger’s island, I’ve had good luck with turnip.exchange

Some people will request a gift and possibly block your route to the market until you pay up, but it seems to be a good community. I’ve sold ‘nips at 450 and above painlessly.

I've got Aries and Taurus but no Geminis. Do you only get them during the astrological month for them?

Jaq, Wednesday, 1 July 2020 04:02 (one year ago) link

I believe so yeah.

Does anyone have the DJ turntable with the vinyl underneath in the shelves? I would love to buy one for my music studio room.

dang. i've still never gotten a shooting star

Nhex, Wednesday, 1 July 2020 04:30 (one year ago) link

Ive only had one succesful set :( At least Redd has showed up a few more times recently! Jaq I saw you ping the other day that you had Redd, I'dve visited but I had him too haha.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 1 July 2020 04:33 (one year ago) link

I think Redd had 3 non-fakes! I got one (lol thought it was fake but liked it), Mordy got one and said there was another non-fake!

My friend code is upthread somewhere, soz i cant load up my switch right now to check haha.

I'll try and get on again at lunch today (that'll be in 3 hours or so)

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 1 July 2020 22:43 (one year ago) link

I have some spare DIYs, furniture in my flea market and a load of stars thanks to last nights meteor shower

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 1 July 2020 22:44 (one year ago) link

Ah forgot to check back in - add me if you like, anyone, SW-6730-8916-9398. I am always happy to give stuff away and am actually having a clear out event atm so if you’re after something best friend me and I’m happy to send it! Also you can visit my island, but it’s a kip cos I’ve only recently started terraforming and doing paths and plots.

I spend most of my time trying to grow hybrid flowers, if anyone particularly wants any kind, let me know and I can possibly sort you out? All I ask in return is the chance to shop.

scampos mentis (gyac), Thursday, 2 July 2020 11:34 (one year ago) link

you can send stuff to real people in Animal Crossing?

Nhex, Thursday, 2 July 2020 11:41 (one year ago) link

also, how do you know what is a hybrid flower? i'm guessing i haven't seen one yet

Nhex, Thursday, 2 July 2020 11:41 (one year ago) link

Yeah, you can post people items at the airport if they’re on your best friends list. Hybrid flowers are when you breed two colours to get a third:

oh gotcha. i got some of those. blue pansies, black roses etc. i'll post my code later

Nhex, Thursday, 2 July 2020 11:50 (one year ago) link

I have everything but blue roses, green mums, hybrid hyacinths, and black cosmos. Willing to trade w/ anybody.

remy bean, Thursday, 2 July 2020 12:04 (one year ago) link

I’m very slowly growing hyacinths but I need all my blue ones to finish my rainbow lol, am happy to trade with you though! If you come over and water my hybrids then they will grow & I have three green mums that would be great for this.

scampos mentis (gyac), Thursday, 2 July 2020 12:12 (one year ago) link

Sounds good. I'll be around this p.m.

remy bean, Thursday, 2 July 2020 14:00 (one year ago) link

Gyac would def trade an Aries and Taurus for Geminis. Have sent you a friend request :)

Jaq, Friday, 3 July 2020 02:04 (one year ago) link

gyac I will add you a bit later when I'm off work.

I'm also annoyed that some random furniture seems to come in varying colorways that you cant alter with the custom paint, you just have to luck out and buy/find the one you want. So I have a mishmasg of grey, light and brown rattan furniture. and an ugly royal blue oriental coffee table when I'd kill for a dark brown/cherry coloured one.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 3 July 2020 04:32 (one year ago) link

Thanks both. Trayce, I have some rattan stuff catalogued if you want a look? Mostly black and brown items. Can you post a pic of your coffee table cos I can’t find it when I google?

Jaq I’ll add you & trade you :)

scampos mentis (gyac), Friday, 3 July 2020 06:55 (one year ago) link

I’m downloading the update which allows you to dive and go underwater, has anyone else played it yet?

scampos mentis (gyac), Friday, 3 July 2020 08:05 (one year ago) link

you need to buy a diving suit so i gotta wait until Nook's Cranny opens in the morning

Nhex, Friday, 3 July 2020 08:39 (one year ago) link

I’ve got a diving suit :) it’s fun tbh but not hugely detailed. Have caught some common fish already. You can’t catch shore fish underwater.

scampos mentis (gyac), Friday, 3 July 2020 09:08 (one year ago) link

I’ll put up a dodo code if you want to come buy a suit? I bet the night fish are cool.

scampos mentis (gyac), Friday, 3 July 2020 09:09 (one year ago) link

i added you gyac

my friend code is 4525-2595-6699 add me if you like

BBJT3 if you want to come and take a couple of mystery items :) ables is closed but nooks is open.

scampos mentis (gyac), Friday, 3 July 2020 20:01 (one year ago) link

turnip price 477 bells today. if anyone wants to come visit i can try to open up just let me know.

Mordy, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 16:34 (one year ago) link

dodo code?

clouds, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 17:17 (one year ago) link

my friend code is above - add me and when i can get online (hopefully in a little bit) i'll open gates

Mordy, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 17:24 (one year ago) link

i'm opening the gate now -- nook's store north a little bit from the airport. you'll have to pass through my daughters' insane decorating to get there.

Mordy, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 17:55 (one year ago) link

omw lemme empty my pockets

clouds, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 17:56 (one year ago) link

Mordy you should be on the exchange app, there’s someone on there with a 3 hour queue to sell turnips @430 bells.

What fruit do you have there and also is there anything you want? I would like to come as well if that’s ok?

scampos mentis (gyac), Tuesday, 14 July 2020 18:03 (one year ago) link

Wait, if you still need Gemini fragments I’ll give you 2 for 1 cancer piece?

scampos mentis (gyac), Tuesday, 14 July 2020 18:03 (one year ago) link

thx maybe i'll check out the exchange sites later. is it pretty safe hosting ppl? as you've seen my island is a mess. if no one can take the stuff my kids left lying around and can't cause too much mischief i'd let strangers come visit. otherwise i may just leave it for ilxors.

Mordy, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 18:31 (one year ago) link

Diys I have, let me know if any of ye want any. I can send by post iirc?

- paw print doorplate

- bamboo flooring
- pretty cosmos wreath
- straw umbrella hat
- golden casket
- natural square table
- bamboo sphere
- shell table
- wooden double bed
- fossil doorplate
- wooden mosaic wall
- underwater flooring

scampos mentis (gyac), Tuesday, 14 July 2020 18:35 (one year ago) link

they can't take furniture/placed items, but anything else might be fair game (plants or dropped items). but i think most people are cool, i've had good experiences

Nhex, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 18:36 (one year ago) link

you can only send by post if you've visited that person's island and you're Nintendo best friends i think

Nhex, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 18:36 (one year ago) link

xp your island looks fine tbf it’s no effort ones like mine that people really judge!

People who aren’t best friends can’t dig up your flowers or fossils or take items, they can steal from money trees though. ime most are pretty honest but it’s always good to gate your island off and get them to pay you first before entering. I haven’t hosted much on mine cos it’s time consuming, but have done it a couple of times with low turnip prices & to do a mystery item thing.

scampos mentis (gyac), Tuesday, 14 July 2020 18:38 (one year ago) link

Bored so I'll leave my island open for a few hours

97DH4

Turnips selling at 149, CJ is buying fish.
Feel free to take any DIY cards or whatever you like.
If you have any blue roses I'd love 'em!

(btw i gotta mention again how gorgeous this game looks on a TV; the colors pop super hard)

Nhex, Thursday, 16 July 2020 21:47 (one year ago) link

gyac do u still have the wooden double bed DIY? I'll have it if you do! Will pay 200bells or swap for anything you're after.

I also have a ton of DIYs I keep getting the same ones over and over and not the ones I actually need.

Looking for:
- any low or regular table in a 1x2 rather than 2x2 size
- the ironwood dresser DIY
- Sahara's cafe wallpaper (ive bought so many wallpapers from him and never gotten it)

I have tons of leftover Fall items, star fragments, DIYs and rando other things. Might try and be online at lunch so I can check further

Huh, the otter didn't show up today when I got a scallop. Weird.

I've got some seasonal Starry-sands flooring if anyone wants it

Nhex, Monday, 20 July 2020 19:17 (one year ago) link

if you pick up the scallop when your pockets are full (so you drop something else first to pick it up) or if you're too close to the fence we've noticed it doesn't trigger pascal

Mordy, Monday, 20 July 2020 19:21 (one year ago) link

oh ok, i think that's it. i was right up against the east border

Nhex, Monday, 20 July 2020 19:43 (one year ago) link

Pascal has not given me a single bloody DIY. Just pearls. I mean I dont really like the look of the mermaid set anyway but geez.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Monday, 20 July 2020 21:37 (one year ago) link

Sometimes you need to catch two scallops and he shows up on the second. I’ve got three mermaid diys, the dress, and pearls so far.

scampos mentis (gyac), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 07:25 (one year ago) link

anyone have decent turnip prices?

Nope, suggest using one of the apps. Might have to queue but worth it if you’ve got a lot to sell before tomorrow
