Though… not the one I expected. So, I managed to get to 5,000 bugs and Phineas showed up!:
But he still didn’t give me the fish badge which is… very odd :/ Even if my count was slightly off, I should’ve caught more than enough to make up for it and it shouldn’t have been that far off to not get it. Even now, I’ve caught over 200 more fish and still have yet to get the badge from him which makes me worry it may end up being glitched like my tree was for a while.
If I catch 3,000 fish again and still don’t get it, it’s definitely glitched…but I’m really upset that it has come to this.
At the very least, I definitely accomplished another badge. And one will hopefully really be done soon and then I can fully work on diving.
As most people know, I have been still working hard on badge grinding! It’s been a long progress, but imagine my surprise when I started streaming and ran into Phineas!
Now, all my badges are at least Silver:
Now to just finally get these last four to gold…
So, as many people may remember I streamed A LOT when the game first came out with my everyday work on the town and then would also update here with the day by day stuff. A lot of people have wanted to see the videos though and so I decided to finally upload them (I originally wanted to do a lot of editing to help cut the time down, but oh well). If you’re interested, the whole thing has been uploading to Youtube and is even in a fancy playlist:
As a reminder, all Happy Home Designer stuff and future AC will be on my main website
Generally, I’ve been pretty good at remembering to change the date back before I load the game up. Part of why I found a permanent end date was so I would easily remember what to change it to so the fact that I thought I had changed it already and hit continue and it happened to be exactly 5 days from the permanent date is just a complete punch in the face.
Like I’m sitting here and I’m upset and frustrated and I’m not sure if I want to punch something or cry. It just sucks. It really sucks. The only “saving grace” is it wasn’t one of my top 7-8 villagers. I adore Marcie and I’m still pretty upset, but if someone did have to move, I would say her and Julian (and maybe Molly) would be the ones that I’d be able to get past while others would just… make me never want to play again. And like, I’m angry with the whole moving mechanic and the fact that I can’t save villagers (and plus this means Marcie decided she wanted to move the day I chose my permanent date and yet never said anything the multiple times I did play), but it’s my fault if anything.
And there was nothing I could do–I booted it up and was hit with “Hey it’s the 12th oh and someone is moving sorry!” and even though I turned it off in a last ditch effort despite the fact that I knew it already saved, it meant nothing. And I even lost all the effort I put into getting all sparkly flowers
because lets be honest I am never again watering all my flowers.
I shouldn’t have to worry about anyone else moving in as long as I actually remember to keep the date the same and don’t clear out (or I suppose I should just disable) StreetPass :/ For now, I’ve just covered her house in flower patterns:
But I’m still feeling pretty down about it.
She sent a letter:
And if she was so lonely, she should have stayed
and mentioned it one of the several times I did have the date right
I already had her photo so I didn’t take the one from the letter, but bleh. The whole situation sucks.
The whole reason I turned the game on was because I was getting so excited about Happy Home Designer and was actually thinking of streaming Dream Suites today and working on my badges some more, but now I just have no motivation to do so again.
I’d be tempted to move Ruby back in if I could, but:
1. Marcie is the first to move since Ruby moved out so due to that stupid mechanic, I can’t have Ruby come back.
2. Who knows where a house will go if I moved in any of my other favorite villagers. I had to place so many temporary things in order to prevent certain villagers moving places and moving anyone now would just be a complete risk.
So I’m in a lose-lose situation and not much I can do. And I don’t have anyone to blame but myself. At least my Dream Address still shows how it was supposed to be. Too bad I no longer live in it 🙁
So, my town is done. While I have a few personal goals, when it comes to my town and island, there isn’t anything left to do. Below will be some of my favorite pictures plus a video of my full town tour.
Also, a big thank you to everyone who has visited! I was very surprised to see this when I updated:
Finally, a quick Q&A:
Does this mean no more updates?
No. While I will no longer be progressing date-wise in the game, I still have over 100 Dream Villagers I’d like to visit and now that I will no longer have to worry about villagers moving (due to no longer changing the date), hopefully I can start working on getting up one every so often.
I also plan to update for Happy Home Designer and if any brand new DLC ever gets added. Plus, any future Animal Crossing games will probably be here as well!
Plus, I still have some personal goals I want to complete :3 So still a few updates that could come eventually.
