Animal Crossing: New Horizons – March 20th, 2020!

I already wrote up my thoughts and observations on my main website πŸ™‚ I will be doing blog posts there similar to how I did here for New Leaf. I’m looking forward to it and streaming again <3

I messed up for nothing.

One of the requests I get the most is if I’ll update my Dream Suite. In all honesty, it surprises me people still want to visit, but it’s a nice feeling. Regardless, no matter how many times I replied to people or answered, it’d end up popping up again.

So, I decided, I’d make a video to show why. That way, people can direct questions there or find a video with the info they’re looking for.

Only… I screwed up. My game was set at April 7th, 2015 and I, not having written down the year for some reason, set it to April 7th, 2016.

I can’t really describe the initial dread I felt when Isabelle said how long it’s been. For one, this meant the hair would be messed up for all characters which is infuriating because sliders suck. I hate having to use sliders in this game. It’s incredibly nervewracking. The other reason, of course, is the moving mechanic.

By SOME miracle, nobody moved and while Flurry was tempted to, I stopped her. Unfortunately, there was the Dandelion issue… I thankfully had a spare fluffy Dandelion, but I didn’t have any other yellow ones… A huge thank you to Bianca who gave me one ;~;

I will say it’s nice that friendship never really goes away–it just pauses.

It’s generally how I am with friendship so I guess if anyone I know is reading this and we haven’t spoken for a while, don’t worry and feel free to say Hi whenever.

However, when I went to update the Dream Suite, well…

My Dream Address actually hasn’t changed at all… So I have no idea why it isn’t working for people sometimes… So I spent… ~7 hours on this now and I just… .________.

As a reminder…

All posts about newer Animal Crossing games will be on my main website πŸ™‚ This is specifically for New Leaf. So, I’ll be posting all Welcome to Animal Crossing content over there!

I made my first post today talking about what I am hoping for from the game and am looking forward to writing more as we get more information!

Changes & Things

So, most of my hopes with catching up in Animal Crossing have been on hold with Pokemon Moon’s release. While I have had a lot of mixed feelings on the games, I still have a lot I want to finish with Moon before I get back to Animal Crossing. I don’t know entirely when I will finish (maybe sometime in December), but until then, here’s some things that have happened recently.

One of the main things is thanks to so many people letting me catalog stuff, my catalog is once again complete! I don’t know if I will add all the new items into my checklist on here just yet (especially as so many of the new items don’t actually show up or are incredibly glitchy such as the Sanrio Clocks and TVs–I have some in my catalog and not others despite using the items and clearly having picked them up), but I’m happy to be finished with it.

While I haven’t succeeded too much in the moving my date along to catch it back up, I’m currently in October and have been doing various changes along the way to some of the rooms in the house. One of the nice things though is I did get to briefly see my Hydrangeas in bloom:

They’re the Bush that is planted the most around town, but don’t stick around very long.

Going to some of the changes around town, well…

I love the new models in this update. I just wish I could place patterns in rooms like I could in HHD so I could actually place Kapp’n on the River as it just doesn’t look as nice as it could.

I then had the very hard decision between Hot Chocolate or Tea:

I did go with the Tea Cup, but I love Hot Chocolate too.

And I got two of my favorite items from HHD:

The Fancy Tea Set and Cheese πŸ˜€ I love that Cheese plate. That is one nice selection of cheese.

The Decoy Duck also made a return:

And I got the Desert Island Good-luck Charm!

The room that got the biggest update was the trophy room:

I really wish I didn’t have to remove as many items as I did though. The item limit breaks my heart :/

Also, while I’m using the Gold Tea Set for now, I am debating on maybe using the Pink one:

I’d use both, but the item limit is also painful in the Kitchen so bleh.

Finally, thanks to Ruu, I was able to visit Filly!


I ordered a few things I wanted to actually have for rooms versus just catalogging :3 Everything IS translated, so hopefully we may see her in the future… but I wouldn’t be surprised if the items are removed again like what they did in Happy Home Designer….

And sadly, I hate to end on this kind of note, but just incase anything else like this happens…. Ignoring that I don’t go on Club Tortimer much anymore (or the island in general–after all that badge grinding, I’ve long been done with it), I will usually be wearing either my usual pink dress + a Detective Hat OR the Crown I usually wear (for when I forget to switch it or am just planning to check store items and not play anything). If not my pink dress, the only other thing I tend to wear is a Pink Wet Suit.

Similarly, this is my ID and I have all gold badges.

If the IDs don’t match up, that’s a quick clear indicator.

Finally, incase of Dream Suite issues. My town can not be found searching for Pink Sea. If any towns come up by searching Pink Sea, it isn’t mine. This is because when I started playing ACNL, my touchscreen was actually broken and I had to use a weird ‘a’ to name it Pink Sea. Thus, searching normally will not get it to show up (Your best bet is searching for Seamstry if you really want a quick search versus entering the Dream address). I do recommend using my dream address though as the last time things like this happened, Seamstry’s name was copied for a Villager too :/

Town Anniversary Event

As most of you may know, I’ve been trying to get my date back to normal. It’s been going pretty poorly and I only finally hit June today… of 2015 still. I’ve gotten about 2 months along so far and hopefully I can start picking the pace up a bit. Regardless, I ended up hitting the anniversary of my town (even if it is technically a year behind) and a new Special Event triggered. It’s really cute, though, I had gotten my hopes up for all 10 of my Villagers showing up due to Isabelle’s dialogue when it wasn’t even close to that… Not to mention a random special villager seems to show up as well (besides Isabelle :P) which also caught me off-guard. Despite those issues, it’s genuinely a very cute event:



And the item you get is absolutely adorable:

I’m looking forward to see if there are any differences when I end up triggering it again as I make my way to November 2016.
