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 😛
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 😛 ) 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.
And I was able to pay off my house completely ^^, now I just have the option to add/enlarge rooms.
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…
Yay! I absolutely love seeing this in my main street, finally Nook’s store upgraded, and there’s a new mystery shop o.o
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!
Walking along my path with a neighbor hehe.
Gulliver came and I managed to get a shot of both of us walking, heheh. We look like an awkward couple or something.
At night, I attempted (and failed) to crate a path design many times, and ended up giving it a rest, I’m no good 😛
But Flip cheered me up! Aww neighbors are so supportive in New Leaf!
Full moon shots *.*
And a graffiti of myself using the 3DS camera app… I was bored.
The shoe- *cough cough* I mean store I’ve absolutely never heard about is still under construction, but the T&T Mart opened!!
Yay! I finally get more object space, a cleaner look, wallpaper and flooring, tools…
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!!
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 🙂
And I finally got a QR code-reading-sewing thingy majiggy, yay!
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.
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?
However, moving at a very slow pace, I was able to get a pretty close match…
Present-catching break! Woo!
And jumping on walls 😛
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
And the neighbors were all suuuuuper supportive, just like when I first moved into town!
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!
So I was making some progress, but the Shoe store was under construction for days! 😦 (I know, I can be quite impatient)
Lyle, Tom Nook and I had a rather interesting chat…
And yipee!! Kicks finally opened! I must say, I’m as addicted to shoes in the game, as I am in real life hahah.
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!!
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?
I find some of the hats Labelle sells quite hilarious. I love it!
And I had absolutely no idea you could actually fish in the main street pond, I guess fish never really shows up anyway 😛
And I now have two balloon lamps! I find the balloon collection very fun and playful, and my collection of it is growing fast 🙂
Yipee!! I think this was my last payment, I’m now left with the option of expanding and/or adding rooms.
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.
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!
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!
Aww I encountered Dizzy at the beach, which doesn’t happen too often.
I also got sent a card set from the bank 😀
And with the fruits I brought back from the island I planted a couple trees to add more fruits to my town!
And I finally planted the famous perfect peach 🙂
Like I said before :3
Is it possible that flying presents are a lot more common than in Wild World? Yay!
And I made all my characters buy something from Redd’s tent when he came to town.
Woah, expensive 😦
I got a shot of the train passing by!
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.
My balloon room so far ^^ (and a random fridge and super toilet hahah)
I finally donated something for the art exhibition, so…
Blathers asked me to renovate the museum!!
I agreed undoubtedly, and it was actually cheaper than I imagined!
Aww, how could I resist?
Jemma, from my Wild World town, wore this dress for a long time, so for old times sake;)
Seriously, I LOVE these funky hats.
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).
I also bough some summer sandals, which I think would be very appropriate with the nice weather.
I mustn’t allow Hamlet to leave… I just couldn’t!!
Having fun at home 😆
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?
Already being productive, I’m proud of myself :’) (not really, hahah)
I put Luna in charge of making my town beautiful, and assigned a corner of my town to hybrid production.
Oh my gosh… look at that sassy walk! I laughed so much!
The painting Luna bought from Redd was fake, and so was Jemma’s… pfff there go 6,000 bells.
Even Reese recognized it as such!
You can’t tell it’s fake in a room, can you?
…I couldn’t resist myself
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.
Aww nights in New Leaf are really just gorgeous.
I can’t get a single neighbor to sit with me… *snif, snif*
And finally a slingshot!
Also something I was rather impatient for; the opening of Club LOL!
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 😛

Those floor patterns were pretty!
Your welcome 😉
It’s great seeing your town’s progress, I love the path you made! I’m a sucker for colorful pastels like that. 🙂 I agree about the helpfulness of the Beautiful Town Ordinance! Honestly it’s kind of spoiled me, so when I first returned to playing Wild World some, it was such a pain having to water flowers again. xP I think it’s one of the biggest bonuses of New Leaf for me! I get to have as many flowers as I want, with all of them being bright and un-wilted every single day 😀
It’s okay to not have dream neighbors! There are many people out there who don’t, just accepting whoever wants to move to their town. 🙂 I’ve just got too much stuff going on in my town to let random chance control my town’s move-ins; they would almost always destroy something if I didn’t do the reset trick and control move-ins. Also, how villager trades work in New Leaf is that you can go to a town of someone’s moving villager, and talk to the villager packed up (they have to be packed up to do this), and request that they move to your town! It’s a lot easier than the ninth-slot-trading in Wild World. You can also still pick up neighbors via WiFi, if they’ve been “voided” (no one convinced them to move to another town)
Heheh I’m glad you liked the super toilet! 😆 I wonder what makes it “super” 😛 Well in New Leaf you can indeed make it look very super by changing it to gold with a gold nugget. I don’t know if Cyrus has woken up for you yet, though!
Congratulations on the new shops and Club LOL, and a new character! Luna reminds me of the character in Harry Potter. And that reminds me…this is kind of random, but I thought I might recommend this podcast to you, if you don’t already know about it! I’ve enjoyed listening to it lately in the background while I do other things. They’re doing a re-read and analysis of the entire HP series, and are currently at the beginning of Order of the Phoenix, but all the old episodes starting from the beginning of The Philosopher’s Stone are available as well.
So sorry for the late reply, Amy!! But thank you so much, it means a lot to me! I know, right? It’s so amazing to just be able to not worry about dying flowers, it makes the job a thousand times easier, although I’m currently watering a few on a daily basis to produce hybrids 🙂
I think I’m turning pickier each day that goes by, because I’m starting to get into the idea of dream neighbors 😛 Thanks for clearing that up, though!
Cyrus just woke up recently, I’ll show it in my next post, but so far he hasn’t been too much help, since I’ve only got one gold nugget (you need three to renovate the super toilet) and I’ve been working on paying down my house, not actually designing rooms… heheh.
Thank you so much for the podcast recommendation, I hadn’t ever listened to it, and it’s quite interesting! I also like listening to stuff in the background while I work on something else, so this has been so convenient! 😀
Aah! I love your paths! ❤ hahaha, i can relate a lot on the path problems.. xP I never seem to pixel the right pattern for my town and i just end up dissatisfied with everything. xD But I'm glad it worked out for you! Some of your captions in this post made me laugh hehe
I love seeing Lilycott improve in each post! 😀 Also, i'm getting my 3ds tomorrow (earlier than expected, actually!) Yay! I'm so excited in wi-fing with you again! It'll be like an AC reunion, haha! xD
Aww thank you, Choco!! I’m so glad you’re keeping up with my posts! 😀
Eeeeep! It’s already tomorrow, I’m so excited! Can’t wait to WiFi with you either, aaaaah I’m so happy right now!!!
Haha, when I saw your placeholder path I thought it was a visual glitch – it looks just like a wider version of the blue bar that goes across the top of the screen at the start or the end of a minigame xD The finished path pattern is adorable ❤ It also blends in perfectly with the original pattern from Tumblr, if you have any intention of mixing the two of them (I mean it's even hard to tell where the edge of your pattern is when you join it onto the other pattern diagonally like outside your house 😮 ) Looks really nice ^^
I love the megaphone, it's such a cool idea to let your call out to your villagers directly to find them.
I think I'm like you with 'dream villagers' – I'm not too fussed about who moves into my town because I know it's not permanent, and if I get someone like Dizzy that I like then I'll keep them longer. I do use the 'villager reset trick' so that new villagers don't land in very bad locations, though.
Oh it'll be interesting when you get that modern mansion exterior. I don't see many of them around. And I think your love garden idea would look great! White and pink flowers is a combination I really like but just haven't found a space in my own town for. There's always next Valentine's day, and by then your garden will be nice and ready 😛
Lol, it's been nearly a year and I've never seen a villager sitting down in my town, let alone sitting with me 😆 I try pushing them towards tree trunks and walking in on them at home, but they never sit xD
Aww thank you so much, I’m soooo glad you like the pattern!! I don’t have any intention of really mixing the two, in fact I’ve already substituted all the blue ones for my own version, but it’s a really good idea, I’ll have to experiment with that!! Maybe for fall or something (have a greenish one blend into a golden one?)
I watched a video explaining the “villager reset trick” and it sounds great (a bit of a pain in the butt though, heheh), once I have a little bit more going on around town, I’ll for sure use it! I also like the look of neighbor houses close together, so with a bit of patience, I hope to be able to put a couple in a little “community” in town 😀
Hahahah, I know! I can’t get them to sit no matter what I do! It’s nice to see I’m not the only one 😛
Haaay thereee! Long time no talk but here I am 😛
Looks like your town is in great shape so far! New Leaf seems like a great game to have. I didn’t know Club LOL was a thing…is that KK’s hideout or something? xD
Oh gosh, Tess!!! It’s so good to see you around!!! I’ve actually just finished writing another post, that’ll probably go up right after I reply to your comment 😛
Thank you!! New Leaf is a definitely a great game, I’m so happy with it!!
Hahah yup, Club LOL is where KK performs as Slider (like in previous games) on Saturday nights, and as a DJ every other night!! It’s also where Dr. Shrunk tells non-funny jokes, hahah.
It’s good to be back! Thanks for remembering me, I thought I was forgotten haha. If Dr. Shrunk tells non-funny jokes, they should change the name to Club Lame or something 😛
hahahaah Club Lame? I don’t think K.K would act there anymore… 😛
Lol maybe, maybe not! 😉
