    Naturally, I've made a "BD crew" pattern. Now I have to figure out how to send it to you all.

    I'm liking my tent, still in it. After I upgrade, is it gone forever?

    'fraid so.


    Unlocked customisations today! And Sahara was on the island so I got a mysterious wallpaper and a mysterious flooring. AND Harvey was there too, so I can fly to Fotopia any time I like. Which is funny, because I have a copy of Fotopia for the N64 behind me as I type this.

    Must have easily put 30 hours into this so far i have been playing it a hell of a lot now on huge blocks of the day and im into a daily game cycle of starting the day harvesting a crapload of non native fruit trees and selling them off as i go around i pick up any litter branches and dig up fossils i then goto musem and turn fossils in and if not needed i then head to the shop and finally sell a full inventory off then go back and do the remaining fruit trees on the other half of the island. In about 20 mins work i net about 160,000 bells which has helped me pay off all my loans i'm now on the final loan from the last house expansion once i'm done it's time to temp dig up all the trees so i have room for building relocation and then plan the layout of my town properly before i plant everything back in a much more pleasing configuration as at the moment it's pretty messy as there's fruit trees everywhere to help raise the funds. Jump ahead a few days so the trees respawn then repeat then go back a few days then save and then repeat again. Really looking forward to having the town take shape i'm still working on that as nook wants me to install another feature so i'm not fully unlocked yet.

    About 8 fossils away from completing that wing of the museum but fish & bugs i have a lot to go as i have only managed to get the ones in season i'm still missing a few of the rare fish. Oh for anyone who has a villager who says there itchy, hit them with a net hehe. The ability to decorate outside like in happy home designer is a game changer but as i get into decorating i realised that it's a lot more limited than happy home designer too as i haven't been able to find anything to hang from the ceilings of my house. It's still a step in the correct direction in customisation though.

    Interesting nintendo released an interview i read it on gaf about this been the first time you can wear whatever sex of clothing you like but they also acknowledged that people time travelled and thats why they removed the penaltys this time so they could still do so but also the reson why the holidays are now download events that you will only be able to access when they make them go live so everyone gets to experince them at the same time no matter how much you jump around which i think is fair as the items from holidays end up been unique and moreso than in any of the other versions as if you miss the holiday you are either going to have to be given those items by another player or you are going to have to wait a year for the holiday to come around. So far it's been a blast, not quite upto the greatness of the game cube e+ version as that had playable famicom games but out of the more modern gen ones it's the best.

    Think he only way to share designs is via the Nintendo online app, which lets you scan QR codes to import into the game

    Theres a machine in the abel sisters store that has some design thingy too you can search by a designs creation number or by a creator id so im assuming once you have created something it could be shared by that as it connects online when you use it. Not tried it out myself thats way down the list of stuff to get through hehe

    This was the interview in case anyone feels like a read.



    Nintendo explains philosophy behind Animal Crossing’s big changes, such as gender expression and terraforming


    The Washington Post spoke to the game’s director, Aya Kyogoku, and producer, Hisashi Nogami, to better understand the motivations behind these significant changes. Along the way, the conversation also touched on their thoughts about eliminating gender restrictions for character customization and how their team in Japan is bracing for possible coronavirus-related hurdles in post-launch development.

    New Horizons’s deserted island concept can be traced back to right after the Japanese release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf in 2012. Early development began shortly after, even before the team hunkered down to produce New Leaf Welcome Amiibo, the upgraded version from 2016. Kyogoku said the development cycle for New Horizons kick-started before the team even began “thinking or knowing about Nintendo Switch hardware.”

    Adding crafting was also a way to keep players from running out of things to do during off hours when shops close, an issue in previous Animal Crossing games.
    “Because the Animal Crossing series is tied to the real-time clock, there are users who want to play late at night or who want to play early in the morning,” Kyogoku said. “By giving those users an option to craft, we thought this would be a new way for them to play and to acquire [craftable] items.”

    Terraforming was also a way to address unanticipated player behavior from past games. Kyogoku said that, looking at earlier entries in the series, users would repeatedly reset and start over to choose the town layout they wanted. In New Horizons, your island is completely malleable, even after that decision, bringing more flexibility to the gameplay.
    “Some may have thought that, ‘Oh, this would have been a perfect layout if there was a river here or if the river wasn’t there,’ ” Kyogoku said. “Well, for users like that, we were able to give them what they weren’t able to achieve before.”

    New Horizons’s flexible nature extends to character customization, too. Clothing items and hairstyles aren’t restricted by gender, giving players more options on how to represent themselves in the game. This level of fine-tuning your character is “not just about gender,” Kyogoku said, but relates to the team’s overall feeling that “society is shifting to valuing a lot of people’s different identities.”
    “We basically wanted to create a game where users didn’t really have to think about gender or if they wanted to think about gender, they’re also able to,” she said.

    In another shift, the developers sought to make time traveling (the controversial act of jumping into the past or future by tweaking the system clock, which some fans think is the wrong way to play) less impactful in terms of in-game features. Time traveling has been used as a shortcut in previous Animal Crossing games, so you don’t have to wait overnight to see progress.

    As Animal Crossing is a game that can be played for a number of years, its designers are keeping the long term in mind. Kyogoku and Nogami’s plan for New Horizons includes seasonal events slated to appear in the game via DLC. Players won’t be able to simply fast-forward through time to experience them.
    “Adding all the seasonal events by updates wasn’t our way to shun away time travel by any means,” Kyogoku said. “But Animal Crossing is a game that users are able to play and enjoy throughout the year.”

    Kyogoku and Nogami, who both work out of Nintendo’s office in Japan, are paying close attention to the global pandemic’s potential impact on post-launch content. Development for these updates “is still going,” Kyogoku said, but the team may need to adjust internally moving forward should the coronavirus crisis worsen.
    “We’re not sure if we have to shift anything, but I think we have to be flexible,” she said.
    At this time, the Japanese development team is working in the office every day, but the team’s hours have changed so employees can avoid rush-hour train traffic.
    “In terms of the development team, I do have to think about their health and well-being as well,” Nogami said.

    Don't put boots/etc that stick out from the wall on either side of the door to a room, they'll stop you walking the way you want to.

    I'm only playing this during my half hour work lunch and it's making progress incredibly slow. After about 20 mins I've done everything available and still the rest of the island is blocked off to me
