Lilycott diaries- Layout mishaps and sitting on my tree!!

Mixed emotions… mix thirty billion emotions in a bowl and the result will be Lilycott :P

Hello!! Hopefully this won’t be too long, since I don’t have to many recent pictures, but I still have a couple past ones to show, we’ll see!

On to the post!!

HNI_0001

Let’s start off with some happy news, Winnie is moving!! It’s not that I don’t like her, I actually think she’s really cute and I like her lime green house (background of picture), but it’s where she was that really was bothering me, I planned on having a café there, and then realized it was just a terrible idea to place anything there, because no matter what I did it forced me to turn my path in an awkward way.

HNI_0003

And more happy news: T.I.Y opened up!! I have to say, though, I was most excited because that means the flower shop’s stock got expanded.

HNI_0004 HNI_0009

I can’t get over his cuteness.

HNI_0014

Any I think I’m finally finished with my “fruit salad” area, I managed to fit every type of fruit with a bench looking by the cliff :D

HNI_0017

I couldn’t believe this, I can finally sit on my tree!! YAAAAAAAYY!! And I totally wasn’t expecting a -History of Lilycott- to show up!

HNI_0024 HNI_0025

Katie decided to visit, this time she wasn’t a crying lost kitty looking for her mom, she was just looking for adventure in other towns!

HNI_0027

Sadly no friends were online to bring her over, but I coincidentally fell into this pitfall trap and she got worried! Aww

HNI_0029

Look how pretty it is! Arrg, if I could just place this in town, it’s gorgeous!

HNI_0030

HNI_0031

I decided that a rack of rice would look convenient in my farm area, currently it’s surrounded by perfect peach trees and it looks quite good! :)

HNI_0033

But- Winnie- no- I, I didn’t- what? why?

HNI_0035

HNI_0036

I am aware that all these flowers aren’t the same type (some are lilies and some are violets) but they I always though they looked similar, and don’t purple violets look like hybrids? :P

HNI_0040

HNI_0041

I actually saw this in action and it lit up and was sooo cool! But I was too cheap to buy it, hehe.

HNI_0042

Oh don’t mind me, just casually watering red carnations my dad sent me.

HNI_0043

Noooooooooooooooo :(

Summer solstice!

HNI_0044 HNI_0046

HNI_0047

Yes, sir!

HNI_0048

Everyone has nets, but I have… *dun dun dun* a silver net!

HNI_0051

Woooohoo!

HNI_0052

Oh.

HNI_0054

HNI_0055

She didn’t mention they protected from mosquitoes, did she?

HNI_0056

HNI_0060

HNI_0061

Heheh, I like imagining the fact that Leif walks around my town, early in the morning when no one sees him.

HNI_0063

Oh the fact that the sun was still shining was kinda weird.

HNI_0064

Aww, she kinda sounds like me!! I’ve got reeeeeaaally pale skin, so the sun ain’t no friend of mine…

HNI_0065

HNI_0066

Daylight club lights!

HNI_0067

HNI_0069

Finally was able to breed a pink tulip, man for some reason these are really hard!!

HNI_0071

HNI_0072HNI_0073

Having fun with a megaphone >:)

HNI_0075

What? But she said it was almost perfect, and I- I… awww noo! The only reasonable explanation is that the rice rack lowered the rating? I even counted my trees…

HNI_0077

I decided to be brave and build a permanent PWP, I built the Reset Surveillance Center in a corner of town, where I didn’t really have much planned, and it’s kind of an alienated zone of town (not to mention with a rock in the middle of it), so I don’t think I’ll mind a space being occupied by it :)

HNI_0078 HNI_0080

Awee, for once he’s being nice! He better be, I’m the mayor!! 

HNI_0084

Give it to me!

HNI_0085

HNI_0086

Hoping for dandelion puffs to spawn…

HNI_0087

I’m not sure if she says this every time, but she just described a spot in Lilycott…

HNI_0088

Deciding placed for the placement of the cafe (any suggestions are welcome!), so far I still haven’t decided so I cancelled the project.

HNI_0092

I don’t think I’ll be able to pay them all off, I think I won’t even build a back room, and I’ll design a bathroom just to have an excuse to keep a room small :P

HNI_0093

Jemma’s bed hair! ^^

HNI_0096

Why did you have to request the ugly one?

HNI_0097 HNI_0098

There was a weird lighting situation going on, at first I though it was some special sunset, as Amy says, but the sky was rather cloudy… doesn’t matter, it was still pretty! ^^

HNI_0099

Aww, cute! Graham decided to call me “my friend” in french!

HNI_0003

I also set up a new suspension bridge to lead to my beach area of town, my other bridges will be brick ones, but I though that having a wooden bridge would help complement the beach theme.

HNI_0004

A little path to lead up to it! ^^

HNI_0005

And ugh, this was the curve I was telling you about, however…

HNI_0007

Winnie moved after all! Which at first I thought was amazing news since I could finally straighten up my path, but look at that massive dirt path that was left!! I’m going to need some serious grass-rehab methods! :(

HNI_0014

It got a little better… and then it got much worse and we were back to having a HUGE loss of grass!

HNI_0015

And just in case that wasn’t enough bad news, a ROCK was completely in my way! And not just in a way that could be hidden with a tree or something, it was right where my corner would go…

HNI_0016

So, I had to remove all my paths up to my house just to reveal more dirt paths, I don’t like this… I don’t like this one bit!

HNI_0017 HNI_0018

And this is the result -.- I couldn’t even pick up the flowers at that moment because my pockets were full, but there are better pictures further down this post.

HNI_0020

However this hippie-ish random flower placement doesn’t look that bad :P

HNI_0021

I’m still not sure how I’ll connect the town tree with the main path, I wasn’t expecting to have a random corner popping out, but I’m sure I’ll be able to work something out.

Next day (after the chaos, haha)

HNI_0022

I was feeling happy! :P

HNI_0023

I added more seashells to reach my, now further north, main path.

HNI_0024

And this is what it looks like after the proper flower placements! I think it’ll be worth it!

HNI_0025

… once I fix THIS.

HNI_0083

 Ariadna out, as well!! (Bye, bye! Have a great day!)

Lilycott diaries- WiFi fun, rainbow roses and almost perfect town??

Wohooo first day of summer vacations!! FINALLY! I’ll hopefully be able to post a lot more often and work on my town a lot more now! I’m very excited!

Hope everyone who has already started had a wonderful summer and good luck on the new school year. And to those of us on vacation, happy summer!! :D Now onto the post…

I decided to call these following updates on my town Lilycott diaries. Since my previous ones were explaining my first month in Lilycott, these next ones could be more entitled to getting a perfect town, the layout of Lilycott… I don’t know, I guess we can try :P

Oh wait… and ugh my posts get sooooo long, sorry guys!

Wait, wait, sorry one last thing: the almost perfect town is a bit of an exaggeration :mrgreen:

HNI_0086

Let’s start off with the celebration of the town fountain! ^^ My idea is to plant orange and pink tulips all around it, kinda creating a nice sunset-ish garden right at the entrance of town!

HNI_0082

I had to redo a side of my three-space wide path, so it would look symmetrical, and while cutting down trees I came across a special tree stump.

HNI_0088

Swimming in the moonlight :D

HNI_0090

Graham told me he was going to move for the 2nd time, and the first time I had said he should move because his house was in the way of my path, however the second time he asked I didn’t have the heart to say yes :(

HNI_0091

Slowly building my forest…

HNI_0093

And placing a bench in next to my fruit tree “forest” next to a cliff. I’ve been working quite a lot on the left side of town, but my right side is almost bald, haha.

HNI_0094

And I believe this was my second silver slingshot flying around town, bu now I have about 5 of them, so if anyone needs them…

HNI_0095

Some progress made on my island, and a purple pansy! Choco was asking me how I got it, in my experience, it just showed up with the blue pansies, however google says red+red make a purple hybrid…?

HNI_0096

Why hello, Gulliver.

HNI_0018

We are to globs in the water, wait… we who?

HNI_0019

Choco came to visit!! Or shall I say Mr. Chocolate, I wish I could grow such a mustache!

HNI_0020

HNI_0021 HNI_0022

I showed her around my treasure island and we moved onto swimming and getting stung by so many jellyfish. 

HNI_0024 HNI_0025 HNI_0026 HNI_0027 HNI_0028

Our attempts at jumping off at the same time :mrgreen:

HNI_0029

Choco has recently started her newest town, Delltune, and she told me how much she misses peaches as native fruit, so I let her take a couple ones!! (she really helps me out later, too!)

HNI_0030

HNI_0031 HNI_0033

She was not kidding when she said she was going to do some shopping, she whipped clean the stores!! :D

HNI_0036

She even bought some fortune cookies, for us to eat!

HNI_0037

HNI_0038 HNI_0040

We then decided I should visit her town, which has a beautiful town flag! o.o and I forgot to take pictures of it, but the entrance was decorated beautifully with chocolate-themed patterns ^^.

HNI_0041

Coincidentally matching umbrellas!

HNI_0042

And jumping off cliffs! I love seeing how beaches are shaped in so many towns, my town only has a tiny little cliff that you can actually jump off to the water from, so I love making the most of my swimming sessions in other towns :P

HNI_0043

Another shark!! I’m starting to believe sharks are much more common when WiFing, is that possible?

HNI_0044

Again, we are to globs under water ^.^

HNI_0045 HNI_0048

Hahah, I laughed so much here, we “discovered” than when wearing a wetsuit and pressing A while facing each other, it looks like you’re hugging!!

HNI_0049

Choco showed me some beautiful artwork she had made, it actually explains a story, can you guess what it says? Tiny disclaimer: it is a sad story :(

HNI_0051

It took me a while to realize what Choco was doing at this time, she later told me she was building a maze! At first I was filling up all the holes >.<

HNI_0055

Awee, Kapp’n, traveling with you is always a pleasure.

HNI_0066 HNI_0067 HNI_0069

We mostly played mini games on the island, they are soooo much more fun with a companion!!

HNI_0071 HNI_0072

Heheh, I won that one, Choco!

HNI_0073 HNI_0074

Can you just see our faces of joy? We couldn’t stop winning! We are the BEST PLAYERS EVAAAAA

HNI_0075

… remember what I said about being the best players?

HNI_0076

But we couldn’t accept a loss, so we decided to play memory again! However Choco’s internet got cut off, and I literally was in that same position for like a minute, the hole time I was saying stuff like “uh, Choco?” “HELP!” “I think I’m stuck”

HNI_0077

After that tiny incident, she came back to visit Lilycott, to see K.K perform at my Club!

HNI_0078

While waiting until 8pm we played some hide and seek.

HNI_0079

And I discovered that my museum actually sells silver tools! Woot!

HNI_0080 HNI_0081 HNI_0082

Do you think she sees me?

HNI_0083

Spoiling my town tree… :3

HNI_0084 HNI_0085 HNI_0086 HNI_0087 HNI_0088

And clubbing like we were born for it! :P

Thanks for visiting, Choco, I had a wonderful time!

*

HNI_0089

Yay! My first mushroom!

HNI_0097

Celebrating the town’s new bench and…

HNI_0099

GAH swimming with sharks!

HNI_0100

And this shall be the placement of the new fence I’ll put up!

HNI_0005

Oh my goooood!! I seriously freaked out when I read this, do you understand what this means? Perfect town, here I come!!! (It’s not perfect, but I can’t believe I’m so close to it!)

HNI_0006 HNI_0008 HNI_0009

Just playing a humble game of hide-and-seek ^^

HNI_0010 HNI_0011

And some more online meetings! I got to visit the lovely Delltune again, here’s the entrace I was talking about! (It’s kinda like chocolate, isn’t it?)

HNI_0012

Teru was also there, and she gave us both lots of hybrid roses, beautiful!

HNI_0014

I had brought over some fossils and gems to help Choco with her collection, but I felt bad that I didn’t have anything for Teru!

HNI_0015

Another shark!

HNI_0016

And another game of hide-and-seek, can you believe we’re all behind a house right now? It was Teru’s genius hiding place!

HNI_0018 HNI_0019

We then made time to visit my town, Lilycott.

HNI_0020

And they both benefited from having Joan there, since my town is a day later than real time (yes, I time traveled… but only 24h!)

HNI_0021 HNI_0022

They both very kindly helped out with the donations of the fence, I kinda felt bad, thanks so much, guys!!

HNI_0023

Heheh, we were waiting to see if Amy would show up, and a friend went online so I got my hopes up! :P

HNI_0024 HNI_0025 HNI_0026

Playing around my stump!

HNI_0027

And Teru realized it was in an inconvenient place, so since she has a silver axe, she cut a new one in a better place, thank you!!

HNI_0028

Ahahah, in this picture it looks like we’re waiting in line to buy turnips, I hope you’re happy with your customers, Joan!

HNI_0029

Before Teru left, I asked if I could show her one of my favorite spots in town, the treasure island/secret garden, you have to swim to be able to get there, (see my map here), so I lend her my wetsuit and told her where to go :P

She told me about a pansy that looked like it was glitched, I never had realized that! It’s like the cliff eats off a part of it! Heheh.

HNI_0030 HNI_0031

She then had to leave, good bye Teru, thanks for coming!

HNI_0032

And when I came back… HOLY GUACAMOLE! Choco said she had spend over 600K on turnips!!

HNI_0033 HNI_0034

What she said.

HNI_0035

Remembering old memories, aaah, good times!

HNI_0036 HNI_0037

Racing and… you guessed it, getting stung by jellyfish!

Choco then also had to leave, I had a wonderful time!

*

HNI_0038

Yay!! Look how pretty they look!! :D

HNI_0039

And sporting my new fav hat! ^^

HNI_0040

Hahah, I probably would’ve bought this in my Wild World town, but not here, I’m the mayor; people expect me to be wise! :P

HNI_0041

HNI_0043 HNI_0044

Wooho!

HNI_0045

o.o what’s this? A BALD SPOT IN TOWN?

HNI_0047

And thanks to the tip I heard Teru mention in her last post, I caught my first bee! (second try). I remember how much I struggled to catch one of these in Wild World, in New Leaf it was actually a lot easier!

HNI_0050 HNI_0051

Awee, how could I not give my favorite cereal (get it? ’cause of Golden Grahams, and his name is Graham… hahah, oh) a perfect peach?

HNI_0054 HNI_0055

HNI_0061

Hey look, Kapp’n looks asleep!!

HNI_0062

Woo! Villagers have started to recognize the Beautiful Town ordinance in Lilycott!

HNI_0063

SO EXCITING!

HNI_0064 HNI_0066 HNI_0067 HNI_0068

Sorry, I had to, I was crying of laughter every time my character fell.

HNI_0070 HNI_0071

Yay!! Leif announced that, with the opening of T.I.Y he will be expanding his shop!!

HNI_0072 HNI_0074 HNI_0075 HNI_0076

I attended Roscoe’s birthday party, I love how they announce them on the bulletin board, so I don’t forget :P

HNI_0078 HNI_0079

This was too cute to not to take a picture of it.

HNI_0080

New PWP requests!

HNI_0082

And celebrating the new fence in Lilycott!

HNI_0084

Graham also recognizing the ordinance (I promise this is almost the end, just a couple more pictures).

HNI_0085

And awww I caught Dizzy watering flowers! Good elephant!!

HNI_0086

Every time I see the train pass by I get excited and try to chase it, this is still pretty new to me!

HNI_0088

I love the afternoon talks I had with Choco every now and then!

HNI_0091

How was I supposed to not take a picture of this?

HNI_0093 HNI_0094

Blah, swallowed some sand.

HNI_0098 HNI_0099

But to cheer myself up a bit I topped everything off with some midnight clubbing (actually 9pm clubbing, tomorrow was a school night :mrgreen: )

EDIT: If Teru, Amy and Choco read this: would you guys like to arrange a WiFi, all four of us? I’m going to be free pretty much all day except on certain days/weeks (like next week, for example, I’ll only have afternoon) but when would you guys be available? I’m sooooo excited to meet you all again, and reunite “the gang” heheh.

First month (and a couple days) in Lilycott

So…  I forgot my own town’s 1 month anniversary, actually I’m not even sure if that’s a thing, but anyways (… I never know how to start out my posts) let me update you on what’s been going on! Currently (June 9th) it’s my 44th day in Lilycott, but these pictures aren’t the latest ones I have, so I’m telling you what happened until about a week before… does that make sense? Hahah, I had to cut the post if I didn’t want it to be extremely long. So anyways, enjoy!

One other quick thing, so I’m going to quickly run through a couple pictures that are preeeetty old, just to show you what happened on those days, and then I’ll move onto more recent happenings.

HNI_0007

My store remodeled to Super T&T (this was the last day it was open, from T&T Mart)

HNI_0009

Cyrus decided to finally wake up, I don’t think I’ll use his service too much, but it’s nice to not hear snoring at the back of the shop :P

HNI_0024

And Shampoodle opened!! In this game it’s right above the Able Sisters, and it adds such a nice spring feeling to the main street with it’s color being mint green.

HNI_0041

I was a bit scared to get a new look as a mayor just yet, so Luna went in as an experiment, hahah. I think the look she got actually fits her personality well, I’m loving the color!

And onto recent updates…

HNI_0028

I think I understand now how these DLC come from, it’s one for each Zodiac Sign!

HNI_0025

The Fishing Tourney was on, and it was my first one in New Leaf! It was harder than I thought, actually.

HNI_0057

Still, I managed to get 2nd place, yay! And what’s best: Dizzy and Hamlet were the other winners!

HNI_0044

I have to admit I’ve been reeeeeeeeally slow growing hybrids, they just don’t spawn too much, this was one of the luckiest days I’ve had, and there’s still only two, I don’t like the idea that you have to water every single flower if you want new ones to spawn, at least before you only needed to water wilted ones.

HNI_0048

Yaaaay! Super T&T opened, I love the supermarket-ish feeling it has, I missed it!

HNI_0050

I then changed Ariadna’s hairstyle to my “signature look” (not really, I just always wear ponytails)

HNI_0053 HNI_0055

I’ve also been experimenting with patterns quite a lot, on the left image I was trying to match the ground as close as I could (using a spaced brick pattern from Amy) it ended in me giving up, since I just didn’t have enough pattern slots in the first place to add a hole new path (given this design needed actually needs 12 slots). It’s a shame, I love the pastel blue bricks!

HNI_0056

… Gaaarrgg uioafaghj I can’t imagine myself holding that in real life!

HNI_0057

A picture of Kappn’s wise quotes :P

HNI_0058

I forget what I was trying to show you guys here, I think I was just happy with how my path looks in bright sunlight!

HNI_0060

Wooho!!

HNI_0061

Aww, cute! Graham asked me to bury a time capsule, I’m not sure what happens next, after you bury it, but I was happy to do so!

HNI_0062

There’s still a loooong way to go to actually pay it off completely, though :(

HNI_0065

I payed off the museum renovation!

HNI_0067

And the next day, my house looked crooked, hahaha.

HNI_0068 HNI_0069

I was sure excited for this! The second floor will be great to host WiFi parties and such! ^^

HNI_0074 HNI_0075

I really enjoy gaining new emotions day by day! My pictures were getting a bit boring without my character doing anything in them :P

HNI_0076

Aww, Muffy moved away! I felt bad, I really liked her!

HNI_0080

I’m slowly trying to raise my account balance at a million, but with everything I have to pay off, by now it’s back at 500K

HNI_0083

:D

HNI_0087 HNI_0088 HNI_0089 HNI_0091 HNI_0092 HNI_0093 HNI_0094

I “discovered” something really cool: when you show an emotion in front of a villager, they also do! I went a bit overboard with the pictures, though. :P

HNI_0095

Yes, yes and yes!! Haha I actually don’t think I’ll ever place a police station in town, but this was my first ever Public Works Project request!

HNI_0099

And right afterwords Isabelle told me about a Dream Suite, yay!

HNI_0004

HNI_0007

By this point, I still didn’t have a wetsuit, something crucial enough if you want to gain more PWP requests, so here I am trying to gain medals…

HNI_0008

HNI_0009

Yipee!

HNI_0015 HNI_0019

Pascal came by, it was a bit disturbing to be honest… :P

HNI_0021

And so did Pete! I kinda miss shooting him out of the sky, hahaha.

HNI_0029

*Sorry, you’ll be seeing me in a wetsuit in plenty of images*

HNI_0031

I started planting blue pansies all over my tiny island, it’s become one of my favorite spots in town, since you can only access it by swimming (also one of the reasons I really wanted a wetsuit)

HNI_0032

He’s beginning to sound like Katrina…

HNI_0034

Aww, and thanks to Graham I now have pears in my town!

HNI_0035

*Splash* :D

HNI_0036

I planted palm trees all over the beach, one of them didn’t grow :(

HNI_0038

Yay!! It’s Hamlet’s birthday!!

HNI_0041 HNI_0042

Winnie was also there, and it was cutely decorated!

HNI_0045

I also made Luna go to his party, since he’s one of my favorite neighbors!

HNI_0046

More pattern experiments, this time around the tree. This was supposed to be water behind a class of some sort, I thought it wasn’t that bad at first, but after days went by I ended up hating it :P So by now it’s removed.

HNI_0047

The sign was easier to blend in the stone pavement than I thought :)

HNI_0049

Jemma’s first emotion ^^

HNI_0050

So I finally set up the 3 square wide main path, which mainly goes from the train station to main street and the town hall.

HNI_0053 HNI_0057

K.K Slider came to visit! ^.^

HNI_0061

And I admired another evening in Lilycott

HNI_0062 HNI_0067

And Saharah came to visit with a very elevated price… what happened to me helping her in exchange for an exclusive wallpaper/flooring? :(

HNI_0068

Ufff… Roscoe’s home was so close to ruining my path, although it’s not an ideal spot either…

HNI_0069

Matching umbrellas ^-^

HNI_0070

You don’t say?

HNI_0071

Aww, look how pretty purple roses are!

HNI_0075

On the first of June, fireflies were in the air! :D

HNI_0076

And mosquitoes too…

HNI_0081

HNI_0083

HNI_0084

o.o

HNI_0086

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!

HNI_0088

For some reason I’m able to catch all the sharks I see on the island and never have caught a single one back in town :P

HNI_0089

I kinda disliked the way the three-wide path looked so huge when in comparison to the 2 square one, so I added this blue rose pattern to see if it could reduce the visual difference in size. (I later switched the blue roses for pink ones, so they would stand out more against the green grass)

HNI_0090 HNI_0091

HNI_0092

Woohoo, another project I probably won’t use in my town, but who knows, it could look good in my magical forest zone in town.

HNI_0095

Okay, this is sort of random, but at nighttime instead of a yellow bird you get an own on top of the Bulletin Board.

HNI_0096 HNI_0097

HNI_0099

Whew, one room less to pay off!

HNI_0100

And I shall end this post with a picture of me dreaming… :)

Possible layout of Lilycott + Help?

Hi there! Long time no talk, well let me very quickly explain: school is ending and I was studying for finals. Now back onto the post! So with the addition of the dream suite to my town (what? when? I’ve taken pictures that I’ll share in my next post along with a couple new additions to Lilycott!) I’ve been “dreaming” about a couple towns, and all of them looked so gorgeous! A couple of them were literally like a movie, it was paradise! It kind of made me realize, that I’ve never been quite “good” at playing Animal Crossing, I mean sure I love the game, but I don’t think I’ve been truly proud of the way my town looks. I’m not that great of an artist either, I like numbers, but give me a blank canvas and I’ll draw a smiley face :mrgreen: But my only goal here is to create something that I really like, a town that I’m really proud of, I don’t expect to have a super amazing town, but that won’t frustrate me either… I feel like I’m not making any sense. Anyway, I just want to decorate Lilycott to the best of my abilities, and have fun doing so! (Maybe get a perfect town along the way? Isabelle still says Lilycott needs more development…)

So I sort of planned out a future layout for my town, it’s not too elaborate and it’s missing a lot of stuff, such as where/which trees to plant on each section, flowers… But I think it’s generally all there, although I need your help! Be critical, I know I’m not great at this and that’s why I need advice; if you see anything that you do not like, would you mind telling me? It could be we just have different opinions, but stuff such as where to place a fountain (or where NOT to place it), how my paths should go, especially regarding villager houses, ideas and suggestions… just about any criticism I can get. Thank you so much!!! And I guess I should now show you the map:

zlCfzSArE8I0Q4meS5This is about an hour of work on Microsoft Paint, so I understand somethings could not be clear (click on the image to expand). You may have to hunt for a couple things, such as the possibly future caffé spot (right side of river, center of town) and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask! :)

Once again, thank you guys!! Any help will be much appreciated!

Is it my second, or third week?

Hey there! Sorry I missed posting last Friday, I’m trying to keep up with a set schedule but last weekend was impossible to post. So I’ll be publishing 2 updates this week, one today and the second one this Friday. :) Hope you can understand!

I am also quite stoked by the fact that it’s already been a bit more than 3 weeks since I first got the game, time flies! And also makes me feel unproductive… hahah. Anyways, wish you enjoy!

For any Wild World gamers: I can’t believe it, it’s the 21st of May, and WiFi is completely shut down now… I’m actually quite sad, does anyone want to join into mutual sadness for never WiFying again in Wild World? Aww, well I am so thankful for all the parties/meetings I was able to have with everyone, it truly was one of my favorite parts about the game… thank you!! ^^

Warning: This is a very long and picture heavy post, since I wan’t able to publish last Friday. If you get bored halfway, there’s no pressure to read it all :P

HNI_0003

I started off the day laying down a sketch of approximately where I wanted my paths to go, right now they were just blank (actually baby blue with turquoise lining :P ) and linked all the main buildings in my town, but I planned on making secondary paths, obviously editing these ones, and redirecting them a bit.

HNI_0004 HNI_0005

And I was able to pay off my house completely ^^, now I just have the option to add/enlarge rooms.

HNI_0006 HNI_0007

And with my several trips to the island I brought back some fruit and planted it, yay! Oh and I also planted a golden peach…

HNI_0011 HNI_0012

Yay! I absolutely love seeing this in my main street, finally Nook’s store upgraded, and there’s a new mystery shop o.o

HNI_0014 HNI_0018

I managed to get my hands on some interesting catches!! I was never able to catch a sunfish in Wild World, so I was very excited!

HNI_0024

Walking along my path with a neighbor hehe.

HNI_0037

Gulliver came and I managed to get a shot of both of us walking, heheh. We look like an awkward couple or something.

HNI_0040

At night, I attempted (and failed) to crate a path design many times, and ended up giving it a rest, I’m no good :P

HNI_0041

But Flip cheered me up! Aww neighbors are so supportive in New Leaf!

HNI_0043 HNI_0045

Full moon shots *.*

HNI_0048

And a graffiti of myself using the 3DS camera app… I was bored.

HNI_0049 HNI_0050

The shoe- *cough cough* I mean store I’ve absolutely never heard about is still under construction, but the T&T Mart opened!!

HNI_0051

HNI_0052

Yay! I finally get more object space, a cleaner look, wallpaper and flooring, tools…

HNI_0059 HNI_0060

I decided to finally sign the Beautiful town ordinance, it was so tempting! Did you read that? Flowers live F-O-R-E-V-E-R. Yipeee!!

HNI_0061

I must say, my fossil collection is advancing quite fast, most of the ones I give Blathers to assess  anymore are usually already on display :)

HNI_0063

And I finally got a QR code-reading-sewing thingy majiggy, yay!

HNI_0065

So I scanned this pattern I found on tumblr. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous, but I couldn’t stand the fact that I can’t edit it to change the through seasons, vary the design a bit… to be honest I kind of felt bad it wasn’t made by me or personalized in any way. I guess what I’m saying is ugly original patterns over beautiful patterns, hahahah.

HNI_0066

I loved the layout of the pattern so I tried my best to create an exact replica of the border and squares in it. And that grumpy face is because I failed at it. Hahah, how many times have I said that in this post?

 HNI_0068 HNI_0070

However, moving at a very slow pace, I was able to get a pretty close match…

HNI_0071

Present-catching break! Woo!

HNI_0072

And jumping on walls :P

HNI_0075 HNI_0076

I finally ended up with this design, which I’m quite happy with since I did do it on my own basing myself off the one I found on tumblr. What do you guys think?

HNI_0079

Hahahah, oh I love this megaphone tool, I haven’t found any actual good use to it, but it seems like if you shout the name of a villager they do the “surprise!” emotion.

HNI_0084

I’ve read a lot about “dream neighbors” that everyone has for their town, to be honest I’m not even sure how the hole trading goes or how you get to choose them, but one of the greatest things I find in Animal Crossing is just how real it is… does that make any sense? Hahah, I like not being able to predict what will happen but at the same time I can make it my ideal world. I’m not quite sure where I’m going with this but I love Dizzy’s cute personality, and I wouldn’t want him to move, so I’m glad I could convince him to stay, even though he isn’t a “dream villager” of mine… I just contradicted myself. Oops.

HNI_0085 HNI_0086

It was my first time swimming at night in the game, I had a ton of fun! But I freaked out a bit when I saw my character holding a lobster with her bare hands… eeek!! I guess it’s no worse than a shark, hahah.

HNI_0091 HNI_0097

I was literally screaming of joy when Dr. Shrunk came to my town! Yay! He wanted to open up a club in town, which most of you probably already know, heheh.

 

HNI_0100

 

HNI_0005

And the neighbors were all suuuuuper supportive, just like when I first moved into town!

HNI_0007

I finally established an ordinance in my town. I was pretty sure I wanted to go for the Beautiful Town one, but there were very tempting ones as well, such as the Wealthy Ordinance or the Night Owl. Basically my town grows less weeds, flowers don’t die and are more likely to produce hybrids, and all these other great benefits!

HNI_0011

So I was making some progress, but the Shoe store was under construction for days! :( (I know, I can be quite impatient)

HNI_0013 HNI_0015

Lyle, Tom Nook and I had a rather interesting chat…

HNI_0017 HNI_0018

And yipee!! Kicks finally opened! I must say, I’m as addicted to shoes in the game, as I am in real life hahah.

HNI_0020

During Amy’s last Wild World WiFi meetings, she gave me a super toilet, and actually told me that in New Leaf you can make it gold! I couldn’t resist buying it, I will treasure it and somehow find a way to make it fit into some room of mine. Amy if you’re reading this, thank you and hiiii!!

HNI_0022

Woot, woot!

HNI_0024

I had just seen the future structure I want my house to have, I think it’s called a modern mansion? What better house for a mayor?

HNI_0025

I find some of the hats Labelle sells quite hilarious. I love it!

HNI_0026

And I had absolutely no idea you could actually fish in the main street pond, I guess fish never really shows up anyway :P

HNI_0027

And I now have two balloon lamps! I find the balloon collection very fun and playful, and my collection of it is growing fast :)

HNI_0030 HNI_0031

Holymoly!

HNI_0032

Yipee!! I think this was my last payment, I’m now left with the option of expanding and/or adding rooms.

HNI_0033

I’ve been trying my best not to leave my account at less than half a million, I know that if I allowed myself to do so, I’d probably be left with only a couple thousand bells heheh.

HNI_0034 HNI_0038

And I decided it was time for a new character, her name is Luna, and I loved her arrival. She’s also got green eyes, which are my favorite ones in Animal Crossing and ginger hair!

HNI_0040

I located her house right besides the beach, and out of all three houses I chose the location of in my town, I think this is my favorite!

HNI_0041

Aww I encountered Dizzy at the beach, which doesn’t happen too often.

HNI_0046

I also got sent a card set from the bank :D

HNI_0047 HNI_0051HNI_0052

And with the fruits I brought back from the island I planted a couple trees to add more fruits to my town!

HNI_0049

And I finally planted the famous perfect peach :)

HNI_0054

Like I said before :3

HNI_0057

Is it possible that flying presents are a lot more common than in Wild World? Yay!

HNI_0060

And I made all my characters buy something from Redd’s tent when he came to town.

HNI_0061

Woah, expensive :(

HNI_0062

I got a shot of the train passing by!

HNI_0064

And Luna was able to pay the 10,000 bells to actually move into a house, heheh. I must admit my mayor is the character I play with the most with a difference.

HNI_0065

My balloon room so far ^^ (and a random fridge and super toilet hahah)

HNI_0066

I finally donated something for the art exhibition, so…

HNI_0067 HNI_0071

Blathers asked me to renovate the museum!!

HNI_0072

I agreed undoubtedly, and it was actually cheaper than I imagined!

HNI_0074

Aww, how could I resist?

HNI_0076

Jemma, from my Wild World town, wore this dress for a long time, so for old times sake;)

HNI_0077

Seriously, I LOVE these funky hats.

HNI_0079

My flowery-surrounded path :) I’m really working on hybrids now, and finishing the path renovations (the colorful one you see right at the entrance of my house is the one I’m aiming for).

HNI_0082

I also bough some summer sandals, which I think would be very appropriate with the nice weather.

HNI_0084

I mustn’t allow Hamlet to leave… I just couldn’t!!

HNI_0087

HNI_0089

Having fun at home :lol:

HNI_0091

My second hybrid in Lilycott, a pink rose; I absolutely love these! I’m thinking (despite the fact that Valentine’s day is long gone) of doing a love garden or something, I’ll have to try and design some patterns that would look nice and romantic and breed tons of pink and white roses. What do you think of the idea?

HNI_0092

Already being productive, I’m proud of myself :’) (not really, hahah)

HNI_0093 HNI_0094HNI_0098

I put Luna in charge of making my town beautiful, and assigned a corner of my town to hybrid production.

HNI_0100

Oh my gosh… look at that sassy walk! I laughed so much!

HNI_0002

The painting Luna bought from Redd was fake, and so was Jemma’s… pfff there go 6,000 bells.

HNI_0003

Even Reese recognized it as such!

HNI_0005 HNI_0006

You can’t tell it’s fake in a room, can you?

HNI_0012

…I couldn’t resist myself

HNI_0014

I’m actually quite fond of the tent at the corner of my town, I’m aware that I should just pay the 10,000 bells, but for now it looks nice, I think.

HNI_0017 HNI_0019

Aww nights in New Leaf are really just gorgeous.

HNI_0020

Slowly… :D

HNI_0021

I can’t get a single neighbor to sit with me… *snif, snif*

HNI_0077

And finally a slingshot!

HNI_0078

Also something I was rather impatient for; the opening of Club LOL!

HNI_0080 HNI_0081

Woohoo!

HNI_0082

Shake, shake, shake that booty!

Thank you so much for reading! I really hope you have enjoyed this, and until… actually until tomorrow I guess :P

Last days of April + Beginning of May

It feels weird uploading pictures of days that have already happened, even weeks ago, since I preferred to keep the length of my latest post (before this one) medium-ish? I’m still trying to get used to blogging about New Leaf, and my town just about looks like a bit of a disaster, and I haven’t really done anything about it. Bare with me! :)

HNI_0002

This was my first time vising Katrina’s tent, it’s much wider and…
HNI_0004

I was so surprised when I saw this! The place illuminates and it looks gorgeous! She also said she sees disaster upon relationships, something I had already guessed by now :P

HNI_0013

And this is what the new shop I mentioned in my last post turned out to be!

HNI_0018

A cute little flower shop run by this A-DO-RA-BLE guy, Leif!! Seriously, how cute is he?

HNI_0022

Aww, don’t worry, Lucy!

HNI_0024

I won my first game of hide-and-seek :D
HNI_0031

I actually fell asleep with my Nintendo on and woke up to this screen!

HNI_0035

Hahahah, oh Dizzy.

HNI_0032

First time heading up to the island!

HNI_0042

Flattering… I think.

HNI_0046

First sight!

HNI_0064

And a shark!

HNI_0069

I wasn’t sure if the jellyfish were good or bad, so I touched it on purpose… it’s bad guys, it stings…

HNI_0074

Leila is so cute! And even though she only pays you 5% of the actual price, it’s a nice way to get rid of none-important catches.

HNI_0079

Yay!

HNI_0081

This was my first shark ever caught in New Leaf!

HNI_0084

And so I headed back to donate first-time catches to the museum. And get ready for midnight beetle attack >:D

HNI_0086

The museum was all pretty, and lighted up!

HNI_0090

And so was my arrival at the island #2

HNI_0099

Yes! It’s amazing how much easier I find making money in New Leaf, especially with Choco’s  tip about catching beetles on the island at night (read more about that here)

HNI_0008 HNI_0009

Yipeee, caught a couple rare ones! :D

HNI_0016

Phineas came and gave me the Insect Maniac badge and the Fish Maniac one! :)

HNI_0018

What’d I tell you about? :3

HNI_0026

I think my friendship with Sable is pretty much complete, she is so sweet once you get to talk to her!

HNI_0028

New neighbor!

HNI_0035

Yay! This means my town will finally have bushes!

HNI_0040

I caught my first flying present, with no slingshot with Teru’s tip. You just need to wait until it gets to the cliff and hit it with any regular tool!

HNI_0041

And what was inside you ask? A balloon lamp!

HNI_0049

I visited Winnie’s house, it looked very cozy and familiar. I caught her waving at me! ^^

HNI_0054 HNI_0055

First rainy day, and changes of lighting!

HNI_0056

You could almost confuse me for a flower, heheh.

HNI_0058

Aww and look: I forget his name… but he’s wearing a raincoat!

HNI_0059 HNI_0060 HNI_0061

Shopping!

HNI_0072

Look, a black tulip!! I think this is my first ever hybrid! :D

HNI_0073

Renovations, woot woot!

HNI_0075

Hahah, that’s quite a funky looking hat!

HNI_0076

That Kiwi hat doe… hahah

HNI_0085

And so I payed off my next home payment, and I’ll be getting a second floor!

HNI_0097 HNI_0095 HNI_0094

And so far this is how my room looks like, based on whatever goodies I was given by neighbors or I bought. It’s pretty basic and there’s no real theme to it, but I still like it, for now.

HNI_0098 HNI_0100

Baby talkin’ :D

*

So that’s it! I feel like this post is very long, and maybe got somewhat boring… still hope you enjoyed it though, I’m hoping practice will teach me :D Well, there you have it! Thank you for reading and hope you have a great day!

Second days in Lilycott

Hello, everyone!! If were wanting to check out how my town is doing, you’re in luck! Keep on reading… Also, quick disclaimer, this post is quite long and picture heavy, I hope you still enjoy it though!HNI_0073My new character, Jemma ^^ I think the train also looks quite interesting.

HNI_0076

And this is where I decided to locate her house, it’s right at the edge of the town, by the train tracks.

HNI_0077

I like her flushed cheeks :D

HNI_0078

And back to Ariadna, she’s broke so I decided to catch some fish/bugs and try and make some money. Also look at those creepy mantis, one on each side. It looks like they’re going to attack!

HNI_0080

output_y4tgMG

^.^

HNI_0085

Running by the beach

output_zqaTLq

Catches of the day :)

HNI_0086

Hahah, I find being broke a bit funny, I’m still in that early game stage where 5,000 seems like a lot of bells.

HNI_0087

I found this pretty spot in town, it’s nice and quiet.

HNI_0088

:(

HNI_0089

HNI_0090

Pretty night sky…

HNI_0095

Geez, thanks.

HNI_0003The HH Showcase!! Still have no idea how it works, but it looks pretty, haha

HNI_0012

Your wish is my command ;)

HNI_0018

I’ve been saving up for any public projects I might need to do in the future, instead of just focusing on paying off my mortgage (which I pay off in the next post, hehe)

HNI_0020

Picture of my desk, I though it was necessary since, you know… I’m the mayor 8-)

HNI_0022

:o

HNI_0027

Almost there…

HNI_0037

I love Kitty’s regal room, and I was having a little too much fun with her bed, haha

HNI_0039

My room so far, ugh I really dislike the tiny space, but the incoming light of the window at least looks nice.

HNI_0040

Night shot #2, with waterfall.

HNI_0043

Just a little bit more…

HNI_0044

… Come ooooonnnn!!!

HNI_0048

:D

HNI_0050

HNI_0053

I was much happier than I look :D

HNI_0054

Bang! Right? Ah, Lyle, you haven’t changed one bit.

HNI_0055

My first cherry tree in town :)

HNI_0057

Fishing on a cliff o.o

HNI_0058

Aww, she scares me a bit but she’s very cute!

HNI_0060

Fishing with my new favorite neighbor, Hamlet!

HNI_0062

Hahahah, this actually made me laugh.

HNI_0065

Dizzy visiting my house. Despite the fact that it looks terrible she was very nice!

HNI_0066

And Rizzo invited me to his house!!

HNI_0067

… Scary.

HNI_0075

Yaaaaay, bigger room!!!

HNI_0076 (2)

Hahahaha, if I had some money to spare I so would have bought this!

HNI_0077 (2)

It seems like there have really been some improvements in New Leaf in terms of WiFing, I like the fact that you have lockers in town and you can exchange messages with your best friends!! :D (If you’d like to add me, my FC is in my New Leaf page).

HNI_0078 (2)

o.o

HNI_0079

Yay!! It seems like the island will be available tomorrow!

HNI_0081

And I spot with my little eye a new shop coming soon!!

HNI_0082 (2)

How could I say no to this little guy?? Do you see how tiny he is?

HNI_0085 (2)

HNI_0088 (2)

Aww, so many neighbors ask to visit your house, it’s really cute!

HNI_0090 (2)

:D

HNI_0091 (2)

I’m almost convinced they must not sell slingshots here, I haven’t seen wall paper/flooring either…

HNI_0094 (2)

Fishing in a waterfall, as you can expect, I caught nothing.

HNI_0097 (2)

Two sad neighbors and a present flying by :D

HNI_0098

Awww, star shaped smoke!

HNI_0099

Welcome!

HNI_0100 (2)

Awww, Dizzy is adorable.

Blopeeers (in this case blooper)!!
