http://gametz.com/VideoGame_Discussion/animal-cros...
















I seem to recall there being a discussion thread for New Leaf, so thought I'd make one for New Horizons. This will actually be my first Animal Crossing game, and I also have the special edition Switch preordered. Amazon says it will be here next Tuesday.

The big difference with New Leaf is that everything has been in the game from day one (except that amiibo content they added years later).

New Horizons they have been trickling things into the game bit by bit, probably to prevent cheaters from just setting dates on their switch to get everything faster. It's definitely an intentional choice on Nintendo's part to make Animal Crossing more of a service-style game.

There are a lot of good things in NH (like landscaping, moving homes around, etc), but there are still a lot of things from NL that people want to see (the coffee shop, gyroids, multiplayer minigames, and things other people have mentioned)

I disagree that it sucked. It would if it lasted days or weeks, but it only lasted 24 hours, or less if you talked to the fortune teller and wore whatever she said your lucky clothing item of the day is. The luck feature worked in the opposite way too, shaking trees would drop extra bells.

Oh, man, I forgot about the coffee shop! I loved that place!


Bring that back too!


I've been playing AC since it launched on the GC. It's been interesting watching all the changes (I wish they would bring back the yard sale/swap meet thing) but they seem to have eliminated a lot of stuff from New Leaf.

But not leveling up things like Nook's shop - that just seems ... odd. Why would they *not* want to do that?

When this game came out, I just assumed Brewster would have a place somewhere. I saved a spot just for him! After a while, I just decided to build my own.

Did you play Animal Crossing: City Folk on Wii? There's one feature it had that I liked, but anytime I bring it up in AC discussions most people are just "meh" on it because they never used it. It was basically like how in New Leaf you could put your own items up for sale in the Re-Tail shop and animals could buy them and so could friends when they visited your town online and they'd pay whatever price you listed it for.
But in City Folk it was an Auction House building in the city area and it was shared among people on your friend list. They could buy your items without having to actually visit you and the bells would be transferred to your ABD account. It used the WiiConnect24 feature of the Wii, so you didn't even have to be playing at the time for the transactions to go through. Unfortunately barely anyone on my friend list ever used it, so it was just wasted potential.

Now that I think about it, more people probably just used the fan-made auction sites like NookBay to sell items to each other.

The Wii version is the only one I've never played. I totally skipped the Wii/WiiU all together.


I had to confess that I used ... Nookbay (I think that was the one) to buy a buttload of gold ore so that I could save a little time.

New update live. A cake, expanded customization (buy w nook miles: standee, umbrella, fan and personal flag), and share/search custom designs shared via NES Online in game via nook phone (also bought w nook miles).

Edit: Also a rug and switch lites you can "purchase" in game for NES Online members. Download free through the NES Online app on the Switch (or e-shop). (I'm not sure if this is new)

Edit 2: I think the custom thing was always in the game at the clothes shop, but access on nook phone is new.

The website he mentions where you download the amiibo data files from, it got taken offline a couple of months ago. You can still find the files with a quick Google search though, they usually lead to a Reddit thread where someone has a link.

I never thought this would happen, but I'm officially hooked on this game! My kids have loved it for a while but I just never had any interest. Recently, I convinced my wife to try it because it seemed like a game she would actually like, and she immediately got hooked on it. They've been having a lot of fun visiting each others islands, giving each other gifts, etc, and I was starting to feel left out lol. So last night I started up my own island. I paid off my moving fees earlier today but have to wait for my house to be built tomorrow. I also saved up enough Nook miles to increase my pocket size which was very much needed. I caught the 15 creatures Blathers needed to upgrade the museum, but then couldn't give him anything else until the upgrade is complete, so I have tons of creatures laying around the outskirts of the plaza until then haha. I've seen several gifts float by but haven't received the DIY to make a slingshot yet, not sure when I'll get that. Any beginner tips y'all have would be appreciated, especially since I've never played ANY Animal Crossing game before. I'm particularly interested in knowing what things I should/shouldn't be doing that will help me down the road. For example, I know it can be a pain (and also expensive) to move/arrange larger things, so I'm trying my best to place things where I intend for them to stay. But, that's difficult when I don't know exactly how many shops/neighbors/etc I'll end up having, nor do I really have much of a vision of what I want my island to be like since I don't know what all will become available to me.

Some things I already know:

1) Visit Nook ATM every day
2) Hit rocks every day
3) Save weeds for a guy that comes and pays more for them
4) Save fish for a guy that pays more for them
5) Plant 10,000 bells in money hole each day to get 30,000 next day
6) Non-native fruit sells for more on your island

There's probably more that I'm just not thinking of. Any additional tips would be appreciated!

You'll end up with 10 animal villagers, Nook's Cranny, museum, campsite, Mabel shop and the building with Tom Nook and Isabelle. I think that's it. Other shopkeepers will show up in the plaza or wander the island, and Redd shows up in a boat behind the island.

But yeah, I was surprised how hooked I was when I first started playing. I don't play as much anymore. Just have so many other games I'm trying to get through.

The Nintendo Switch Online app was updated for ACNH to add in Nook Points. You can earn 10 points per day by checking in, and then use them to buy special items.

Katrina is still not in the game at all but she gives "words of wisdom" via the app now. Pretty worthless though since they don't seem to have any affect on anything.

I confirmed the color can be changed on at least the two mushroom platforms and the green shell using the custom kits in nook shop.

I've been playing every day since I last posted. I've upgraded my house enough times to have 2 extra rooms, and I almost have enough money to upgrade again. I also did the thing where you pick the spots for three new neighbors and then you have to craft a bunch of furniture for them. One neighbor moved in today, and I think another is coming tomorrow. My museum has upgraded twice now, and I have Nook's Cranny. Also got to build my first bridge (can't wait to be able to build all the bridges and inclines I want). I have a huge pumpkin patch going, those things sell for an insane amount of money. CJ still hasn't come to my island, I have a ton of fish I'm holding onto to sell him. I have a pretty good idea at this point of where I want all of my houses/buildings/bridges/inclines to go. I already have a couple things that I'm going to need to adjust, which is annoying. I've already learned from my wife that you can't just simply move a house/building over a couple spots, you have to move it to a completely new area, THEN place it where you need it to go. I can't for the life of me get 8 items from a rock. I've done the thing where you dig holes to stop yourself from getting knocked back too far, then proceed to mash the crap out of the button, but the most I can ever get is 7.

Are you using a shovel? I can only get 7 with an axe, but I can get 8 every time with a shovel.

That explains it, I've been using an axe since pretty early on. I got used to using an axe because before I figured out the hole trick, I would sometimes accidentally dig a hole instead of hitting the rock.

I've noticed a cool little detail. I was decorating a room and noticed that a plant and a little flag that I placed on a table were both moving. It turns out that the AC unit that I placed on the wall was blowing on them! I moved the AC unit to the other side of the room and then the plant and flag stood still. I like the fact that they even bothered with such a small detail like that.

I'm pretty frustrated with this game right now. It's so annoying that you don't get the ability to alter land/water and create paths until so much later in the game. By then, you've built bridges and inclines, placed all of the stores and houses, planted flowers, built fences, etc. Now, I have to undo like 75% of my work just to use these new features, then re-do everything.

altering land/water an end-game thing.

Apart from adjusting some small pools of water I haven't done any land building/tearing down. I've spend a crap ton of time making wooden walkways though.

I wouldn't be so frustrated with it. I love my island's layout as it is. I don't have any need to reshape it.

Maybe you don't either?

Redd's an even trickier bastard than ever before. In the past, he always had one legit item and the rest were counterfeit. That's not always the case anymore! I was there today and noticed that all four items were fake. After doing a little research, someone determined the following:

10% - 1 fake, 3 real
30% - 2 fake, 2 real
50% - 3 fake, 1 real
10% - 4 fake, 0 real

Those are all literal chores though, that's not the way I was using the word. What I clearly meant was that it's going to be a frustrating pain-in-the-butt to un-do all of the decorating I've done so far in order to take advantage of terraforming. None of the daily chores are like that. They're actually fun/relaxing to do, and it doesn't make anything else in the game harder if you do them.

Someone pointed out that in one of the screenshots Nintendo posted to the site detailing the new update, the character is standing in front of a house that does not match the houses of any animal currently in the game.
Capcom is doing some kind of digital event for Monster Hunter: Rise tomorrow, so people are hoping this house could tie into Felyne (the cat from Monster Hunter that was added to ACNL's big amiibo update) coming to ACNH .

It's something they do in Japan to celebrate "boys day" on May 5th. ACNL had that item also, but you had to visit a Japanese town to get it, same for that newspaper hat he's wearing in the pic.

It's unlikely. So far they've been making all items available for all regions, you just have to order them through the NookLink app on your character's in-game phone.

New update is live now.
Nintendo removed that screenshot on their website with the unused animal house in it, it wasn't meant to be shown and will probably end up just being nothing. Something similar happened once before with a fence that was colored white in a screenshot they used, but in the actual game it is a different color.

A dataminer says 200 new "finished-but-not-released" items were added in the update. No new DIYs though.

I pre-ordered Castaway Paradise in the eShop and it released today. I played for an hour, it's so obvious they were "inspired" by Animal Crossing, but everything it does is done better by AC. But for that hour I played, I admit it wasn't as terrible as I was half expecting it to be. It's amateur as hell compared to AC as well. I will stick with it a little longer. My biggest complaint so far would be the lack of any kind of multiplayer. That's always a big part of Animal Crossing.

Yeah, it's annoying that you can't set the pipes up as pairs.

I wish you could customize them. Have red pipes that only lead to red pipes, yellow pipes to yellow pipes, etc. That would be cool.

Hokko Life just went into Early Access on Steam. It's another game inspired by Animal Crossing.

So, I'm about 2 months into this game now (first time playing Animal Crossing). I think the most frustrating aspect of the game is keeping up with flowers. The game would be much more enjoyable if you could put flowers in your storage. I know it doesn't make sense in the real-world, but the game lets you store fruit there indefinitely, so why not flowers? Ever since I first started breeding flowers, they've been such a pain. I want to have multiple copies of every type/color of flower, but it can take up a huge amount of space to store all of them. Right now, I'm keeping most of them on my beaches as I finish designing/decorating my island, but that's far from ideal. I'd love to see them add a greenhouse to the game where you could store all of your flowers/shrubs when you're not using them.

I guess that's why I always kept plucked flowers in my inventory. Because besides making DIYs and making your island pretty, why do you need so many you need to store them?

Being new to the game, I'm still not sure how my island is going to look when I'm done, so I can't say for sure now which flower types/colors I'll need, and how many of each. I don't want to mess around with growing new flowers every time a new design requires it, I'd rather just grow everything and have it available as needed.

I have Tabby, Drago, Mint, Twiggy, Ribbot, Claudia, Rilla, Lucy, Cookie and Nibbles (listed in order of how long they've been on my island).

I'm gonna force Rilla to move out soon (another animal sold me an electronics kit and immediately after that conversation ended Rilla came over asking if she can have it, I accidentally said yes and she put it on display in her house and it looks out of place among the Hello Kitty items she has, so now I'm just gonna kick her ass out when I get the chance) and I'm working on getting Lucy's, Cookie's and Nibbles' photos and when I do they will each be getting kicked out afterwards too.

Yeah, Octavian is still on my island too. I've never gotten a single villager photo. Just haven't really looked into how to get them.
