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

I caught a squid tho

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

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?

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

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

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!

Cuz you aren’t playing! That’s you after all. You’re uh. Maybe you’re swimming offshore.

xxp you are a patient on this island, and the game is a treatment designed to make you confront a terrible truth

my tiger butterfly gave the owl goosebumps

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:10 (one year ago) link

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:11 (one year ago) link

i love+ this game

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:34 (one year ago) link

just learning about parasaurolophus, nbd

Karl Malone, Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:35 (one year ago) link

yes this game owns. let's trade fruit

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:49 (one year ago) link

I have cherries (native), and apples/coconuts (currently growing)

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:50 (one year ago) link

add me to come visit the wonderful island of genauso - SW-7828-0095-6207

gday curd nerds (||||||||), Sunday, 22 March 2020 18:52 (one year ago) link

native pears for me! i'll visit some places and leave gifts (if i can) later today

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&/

Chuck_Tatum, Monday, 23 March 2020 11:22 (one year ago) link

*still work?

Chuck_Tatum, Monday, 23 March 2020 11:23 (one year ago) link

I used AC patterns to add a pic of my old dog to my game. came out quite well, I think. <3 <3

there's not really missable things i don't think, if you miss something one day it can happen on a later day instead

ciderpress, Monday, 23 March 2020 13:59 (one year ago) link

omg! your house looks amazing! mine still features a cardboard box with a kleenex dispenser on top

Karl Malone, Monday, 23 March 2020 14:09 (one year ago) link

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!

Karl Malone, Monday, 23 March 2020 15:09 (one year ago) link

the museum might be the best video game interior ever.

silby, Monday, 23 March 2020 18:26 (one year ago) link

Wisp gave me gray wood paneling. I love the way my house looks with just the lantern on now

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 02:14 (one year ago) link

The trader guy gave me an animated wallpaper that looks like the background of punchout!(!)

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 02:27 (one year ago) link

You mean your interior is now a giant pixelated crowd at a lopsided fight?

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 03:07 (one year ago) link

We need to make an #ACNH channel in the poxyfule slack so we can notify each other when airport gates are open

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 03:09 (one year ago) link

oooooh there’s a poxyfule slack!

btw i bought this and my airport is open but i don’t especially know what i’m doing

karmic blowback for dissing pip and jane baker (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 03:25 (one year ago) link

This is officially the game of not knowing what you’re doing. As long as you bumble around for a little bit each day good things just start happening to you

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 03:33 (one year ago) link

Search for “poxyfule.slack” in answers/posts and you should find the invite link

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 03:34 (one year ago) link

lovely, cheers
