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.

Yeah, I was ok with leaving it the way it was. The only thing I did was to open a path to the beach where the fox appears. For nothing, because I never saw him again, and I stopped playing like a week after that.

Do you guys remember to check in on the Switch Online app daily for those Nook Points? I usually forget to do it, but I finally did it enough times that I earned enough point for Isabelle's photo.

I do it every day. I've gotten the Nook Inc. poster, doorplate, and the Tom Nook photo so far. I hope they add more items in the future.

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

I've had 4 fakes many times. In fact the first time Redd visited my island it was 4 fakes. I don't recall ever getting 3 real, though I've had 2 a few times.

That's basically Animal Crossing's gameplay loop, though - doing chores. Pull weeds, dig up fossils, hit your money rock, plant your money tree, chop wood, collect fruit, help villagers, check the shops for new goods...

Animal Crossing, Terraria, Stardew Valley, Meinkraft are all chore games.

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.

Next update is coming on Wednesday night. Looks like it's just re-adding in the May Day event and Reese & Cyrus wedding photo shoot from last year.

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.

So is it exclusive to Japan in NH?

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.

Some glitch that lets you sit in the hot tub:

Gate is open. Dodo code 0QPF8. Help yourself to any of the recipes in front of my daughter's house. Be sure to check out my house by jumping in the warp pipe.

Your post reminded me I still have not setup a warp pipe anywhere on my island and I should do that.

I like using them, but if you have more than two, the pipes whatever pipe you emerge from will be determined randomly.

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.

If you talk to them enough and give them gifts (I usually wrap up assessed fossils and give those because they won't display them in their house) and do errands for them, once in a while they will give you their photo in return instead of the usual random clothing.
