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&/

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

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

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!

the museum might be the best video game interior ever.

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

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

I got up to 49/50 succesful fish catches in a row to do one of my nookmiles... and fucked up the 50th catch >_<

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 05:19 (one year ago) link

lol I will not be chasing that dragon

silby, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 05:23 (one year ago) link

Im a fishing addict!

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 05:45 (one year ago) link

there's way too many instances where the fish grabs the lure right away and then bloops, or something else in the house distracts me for just long enough to screw everything up. silby otm

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 14:31 (one year ago) link

what do people do when they visit other people's towns? hit up their shops and nook ATM, steal some fruit... what else?

||||||||, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 14:35 (one year ago) link

Goof around. Get on a voice chat and talk. Visit their house. Etc.

silby, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 14:44 (one year ago) link

i was really confused about fishing at first, but i think i figured out the secret (?)

(doesn't it have to do with how hard it taps on your lure?)

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:13 (one year ago) link

count as a visitor towards the host's "host the most" nook miles

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:14 (one year ago) link

when it pulls the bobber under the water tap A

Mordy, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:15 (one year ago) link

it'll nudge it 0-4 times first

Mordy, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:15 (one year ago) link

i didn't even catch the visual cue, more the haptic feedback cue - it's noticeably more forceful when it pulls the bobber under, vs the little nibbles before

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 15:16 (one year ago) link

i'm playing on a lite so no haptic feedback, apparently a handicap here

ciderpress, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 17:01 (one year ago) link

Theres 3 things: visual splash, audible BLOOP and the haptic feedback - once you get used to it, it becomes muscle memory, except when I get itchy trigger finger on catch #50 grumble

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 21:55 (one year ago) link

depositing bells into savings is depressing as hell when you’re unemployed in the real world

karmic blowback for dissing pip and jane baker (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 22:16 (one year ago) link

FOCUS, Tracy!

:P

I didn’t know there was a reward for consecutive successes so I’m definitely going to chase that dragon

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 22:41 (one year ago) link

yeah its part of the nook miles stuff. which is remeiscent of the reward system in the sims

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 22:45 (one year ago) link

jfc, sorry trayce, not Tracy! I’m falling apart over here

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 23:50 (one year ago) link

Haha I thought you said Tracy on purpose to scold me, like my mom does :D

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 25 March 2020 05:03 (one year ago) link

the museum is so sick

na (NA), Wednesday, 25 March 2020 14:05 (one year ago) link

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.

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 14:33 (one year ago) link

i want to get h*gh and wander around the museum. though right now it's pretty empty.

na (NA), Wednesday, 25 March 2020 14:45 (one year ago) link

you know timmy is vaping 94/7

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 14:50 (one year ago) link

can't wait for tom nook to hawk me a reskinned juul

||||||||, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 14:53 (one year ago) link

wish players other than player one could unlock the museum and such :/

Mordy, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:14 (one year ago) link

if you want to start over and put a kid in charge you're probably running out of time for the loss to be tolerable

silby, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:16 (one year ago) link

a kid is already in charge -- i just have to convince her to get the museum built!

Mordy, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:21 (one year ago) link

ah in that case what you need is your own Switch ;)

silby, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:27 (one year ago) link

i did make a splashy quarantine gaming purchase but it wasn't a second switch (it was a Quest, on the heavy urging of an israeli friend who kept sending me videos of his kids loving it)

Mordy, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:37 (one year ago) link

should i buy this and bully my partner into playing with me when i shouldn't be spending disposable cash in any case as we're about to go into a real life economic depression Y/N

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:39 (one year ago) link

uh yeah, of course

silby, Wednesday, 25 March 2020 16:39 (one year ago) link

like I can't imagine a more cost-effective purchase if you're planning to be broke and insane for the indefinite future
