FINALLY I’ve gotten my town and my screenshots sorted out, and can welcome you properly to my Animal Crossing: New Leaf town, Arcadia ^_^ As I was saying in my previous post, there was something about my first town that didn’t sit right with me, and I’m glad I got a second town, because I love this new Arcadia. I hope this post won’t be too long, because I’ve compiled the events of the past 18 days here. I mean, I’ve done 200+ pic posts before, right? =P
EDIT 04/08/13 This post is so ridiculously long that even I avoid clicking on it, which means it’s too long. I’m splitting it into seven parts for easier reading, which means some of the comments might refer to things from later parts. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I hope it’s an improvement!
The most random “Day 1” picture ever, haha. But Wart Jr’s room is the most colourful part of my town right now.
Blue station! My last welcoming party included a horse, as well 😛
The town hall was the one with a dark blue roof.
This time my house is still positioned in a river bend as I always wanted, but with as much space as possible around it, which I’ll be able to isolate using streetlamps later to keep to myself 😛
I found a way to take a screenshot of the map: Tell Isabelle you want to demolish a public works project, and she’ll show you a list of your PWPs with the map in the top screen 😀
The villagers from left to right are: Wart Jr, Papi, Olivia, Peggy and Kody.
I’ve actually been guilty of manipulating the date for this town >_< In order to catch up to my where my old town was up to, I set the date back to around the 20th June before I started resetting. Then I’ve been playing about two days per real day.
Peggy and Cody’s houses.
The outside of Wart Jr’s house is… completely different to the inside.
Papi’s house wasn’t as nice as the others and not as disastrous as Wart’s house, so I forgot to take a picture 😛
I really like my new beach. It’s looong and varied, with both wide and narrow parts. My old main beach was just a long monotonous strip.
Viewing from the top of the waterfall (which we can SEE now), you can see the tiny “private beach” below the railway bridge. I hadn’t planned on having one but it’s nice, even if a bit small.
The isolated cliff on the other side 🙂
My first item of business was to get Rain 1 over from Arcadia 1, because she had a ton of Bells to transfer over that she’d been saving up for the new town 😛
Good time for a shoot, while Rain 1 was glitched on a smile while “thinking”.
Back in Wart’s house, he has a pet frog 😛
Going to the museum to deposits my first batch of catchings. Except this is the wrong way!
After I came out of the museum, I went the wrong way again 😛
Aaand lastly, my first fortune cookie [in New Arcadia] 😀 Do you know what it is?
My first clover… is a four-leaf clover! 😀 It’s a sign xD
Clicking the camera at a funny moment, when the fish is still in the water 😛
Peggy gave me a lucky gold cat, which jingles and meows when you touch it 🙂
Ah, she’s such a hard-worker.
What… I don’t even understand the question =_=
Getting this over with early.
I should have taken the commemorative photo first, huh?
Visiting Papi, and this music he is playing is creeeepy. Seriously, his room is perfectly normal, and then the music kicks in and sends chills down my spine.
Maybe it’s because I’ve seen videos of Aika Village, where this music is used. Once you’ve seen that place, it’ll stick with you for a while.
Odd new sort of fetch quest… where you fetch another person.
I got some nice flooring, from the new wood series. I might have a room for that series some time in the future. I have other priorities, though.
Peggy wanted a Goliath beetle, which I went alll the way to the island of Arcadia 1 for. Jeez, you villagers don’t start small with the errands.
My mayoral approval was adamantly stuck on 95% and wouldn’t shift until I completed this last. dang. errand.
A unicorn!!! But… even the Easter Bunny doesn’t exist in this game… Maybe he’s just a horse who wears a horn on his forehead for kicks?
Jumping in with my first streetlamp a.s.a.p.
Visiting Peggy the piggy, who likes stripes.
Uh yeah… totally!
I like this fortune cookie item! Do you know what it is? ^^
Yay! This is on the eastern side of my house. There’ll be a rock on my “property” 😛
Onto the next one!
First new neighbour, Deirdre. Can you guess what animal this is?
This reserved plot actually snuck up on me. I’d been doing the “new resident trick” in order to scout the town each day for new villagers’ plots for houses before actually loading up Rain’s file, whereupon any bad villager house placements would have become permanent. I somehow missed this one and went ahead and saved the new player character file. It’s not in the way at all, though. Deirdre picked a very sensible spot, south of the town plaza 🙂
Oh yeah, doing it just right.
I didn’t realise I needed to pay off my first home loan in order to unlock the island, so doing that right away!
I’m still trying to figure this one out… My villagers sometimes tell me this, and I don’t really understand it. They start off by talking about the sign outside Re-Tail which tells you the special item of the day, but then why this stuff about “chance of high-value resales”? Is that the occurrence of the item, or the frequency they list the item, or…? Anyhoo, plenty of other ways to make Bells, so it doesn’t really matter 🙂
