For anyone on the fence about this, I will say that this time around the Stardew Valley/Harvest Moon comparisons feel a bit closer than with past AC titles. Nook Miles illustrate just how much there is that you can go and do, and the progression that's linked to them (getting your first house, upgrading your tools, new crafting recipes, etc.) gives quite an incentive to go out and do something. If you're the type who likes having goals to reach for, you might like New Horizons more than earlier games in the series.

Sure thing!

Add my steam id too: https://steamcommunity.com/id/kevoguy

I added a bunch of people from that thread, so if you get a random friend request, it's probably from me!
All done.

I suppose exchanging fruits isn't quite as necessary as it used to be since you can pretty easily travel to random islands now, but I've saved some to share if anyone wants to visit.
i've been to like 10 mystery islands by now and the only primary fruit i've ever seen is cherries, my native fruit :-I

well, i confirmed that it does happen


it's just not very reliable, since it appears a majority of mystery islands use one of the common layouts that have 4 coconut trees and maybe 4-6 trees with your native fruit. in total it seems like around 3/4 of the mystery islands i've been to were of that variety, and this pear island is only one of the four uncommon rolls i've gotten so far. (the other three involved purple and pink mums around a pond, a central plateau with 6 or 7 rocks on it, and a bamboo forest)

My native fruit is apples if you wanna do a trade. I could use some cherries.

Turnip sales should begin for us tomorrow. Remember to get up in the morning, since Joan always left by noon and I expect her replacement will do the same. Once you have the shop open, check in for the turnip prices, which'll change in the morning and the afternoon. These vary from town to town, so if you get a high price, be sure to let your friends know!

Turnips are 101 bells for me, so I'm not gonna buy em here.

daisy was selling them at 94 bells here so i went ahead and bought 4100 :-I

bear in mind that you can't store them for some dumb reason so you may just need to use floor space

Something I just spotted in the footage I've seen: As the ground-cylinder rolls around as you walk north and south, rows of grass blades appear and disappear at the top edge to make it look just a bit less flat.

The Animal Crossing thread on SA is a good place to check for high turnip prices. A lot of people there open their islands with a Dodo Code, so you can hop in with that (after trying again and again to get in), and so many people will be coming that the host is unlikely to notice even if you are a pubbie.

Clay is moving out of my island tomorrow. I assume that you can still convince villagers to come join you if you talk to them on their moving day, so if anyone wants him, let me know somehow and I'll open up for you tomorrow.

So is it true that your starting villagers will always be a jock and an uchi? That's been going around, and it's been true of everyone I've seen play the game so far, but that's a really weird thing to do.

Yes. Tom Nook later suggests that those two types are about the only sorts who were willing to go camping on a deserted island, in a tent and all.

Uchi's the best personality so that's why

and Bill's a jock and a cute duck so that's why * 2

I think Lazy is my favorite personality. My favorite neighbor in New Leaf was Elmer and my favorite in New Horizons is Cole. Both are lazy personalities.

Found a fancy bird on a nook miles ticket and invited her to the village.

I am not at 10 villagers, and can start being mean to the villagers I want to leave.

In case anyone wonders about all the patches we've been getting lately, Nintendo publishes the patch notes on a somewhat buried support article. Most of them have been hotfixes for the worst bugs and exploits, but today's patch nerfed the egg spawn rate to where you can actually reasonably get iron and wood again. It says there'll be lots of eggs again on Bunny Day, though.

I love that the passport lets you describe yourself as "[thing] Trash". Nintendo's really up with the times. Sadly there aren't a lot of first-part options that pair well with it, although Vinny calling himself "Internet Trash" was a good one.

gonna drop some useful links here where they won't be as buried

Turnip Prophet - as you probably know, turnips follow a certain pattern each week. input as many of your turnip values as you can into this tool and it will narrow down the the range of possibilities you can expect to see later in the week

Ninji's Mystery Tour Islands Guide - this is just a list of all the possible mystery islands, including their chance to appear along with any special properties they have. bear in mind that some of these have seasonal or time-of-day requirements that aren't listed, but are easy to guess. for instance, "fins island" will only appear while you are in a month that can spawn finned fish, and tarantula island will only show up at night during months that have tarantulas

Flower Genetics Guide - flowers in AC have never been a simple matter of mixing two colors, although in most cases that simplistic understanding is enough to foster results over so many days. this guide delves into the actual mechanic of flower genes while also still maintaining a simplified list of the combinations that work. in the end, the only particularly difficult flower to make is the blue rose; the rest require at most a modest effort to keep two genes of the same color separated based on where they came from

i'll also just sum up the rumors that have been debunked thus far:
  • money trees do not follow a discernable pattern. datamines have confirmed that you have a 30% chance of tripling any amount above 10,000 and a 70% chance of being capped at 30,000. i already did the math to determine that unless you are super lucky, planting the no-risk 10,000 every time results in statistically higher gains: it's a guaranteed 7.3m in profit per yer as opposed to an average profit of 4m or so
  • being mean to villagers does not make them more likely to move out. the specifics of how villagers choose to move out have yet to be determined, but what is largely agreed upon is that abusing them never works, and interacting with them in general is what can prevent them from ever wanting to move out. it is assumed that as with flower breeding, this mechanic works much like it did in ACNL, which would suggest that the safest way to guarantee a villager eventually wants to move out is to fence off their house and never interact with them until you see them enter "thinking mode". this does not guarantee they are thinking about moving out, but if it turns out they're not, just continue isolating and ignoring them until next time
  • mystery island appearance rates cannot be manipulated. Ninji's datamining (see above guide) determines that the odds for each island are pretty much set in stone and do not change just because Orville was blushing when you talked to him or anything else

There is some kind of beetle that appears randomly when I chop down a cedar tree. It always flies away before I can catch it, no matter how stealthily I creep up on it. :flipout: It’s the only bug I’ve had trouble catching so far.

Update: caught a violin beetle and a jewel beetle on cedar stumps last night. Also, I caught a coelacanth. :smug: It was totally worth burning a Nook Miles Ticket.

My fave villager moved out, but Peanut is moving in. I’ve had her before so I think she’ll be okay? Maybe?
