Hiiii again guys… It’s been a while, huh?
Sooo last few months were hectic, and the hectic will start again soon. I had a beautiful long holiday coming up over the New Year and then craaazy stuff hapened, and not the Redd kind, and my holiday got taken up too. Juicy details if you want them 😛
ANYWAY, that’s neither here nor there. While I was sorting through my 3000-odd pictures accumulated over the last 6 months, I stumbled across this screenshot I took back in June, and I can’t believe I forgot about it:
If you stand in front of a door and pan the camera up before pressing A to enter, you can get a whole zoomed-in picture of the villager house!
The past few months I’ve just been speeding through Animal Crossing distractedly while keeping up with work, and whenever I found this out it slipped straight through my mind and into the backburner, where it got smothered by everything else there. Not being able to take full pictures of villagers’ houses has been something that has bugged me since the very beginning and I’m amazed the solution was right there the whole time. (And I’m equally amazed I forgot!)
After I relearned this trick I promptly went around town today and snapped more pictures! (I’m still catching up from October :P)
It also works with the other buildings…
…though since they’re bigger you’ll often have to take the pic before the door closes. But in these cases I think the sliver of light is quite nice 🙂 (Here is a picture of the café with the door shut, which I edited on.)
By comparison, these are pictures I took in the past of some houses where I didn’t know to pan the camera:
I’m starting to doubt myself though… this method is so obvious that maybe I’m the last person to know about it? 😮 Or I used to know it and it slipped my mind that it slipped my mind? I better not think too hard about it =_=
