Hello and welcome to PC's one and only Animal Crossing fan club! Here, we will be discussing everything about this wonderful game series. Everyone is welcome, provided you're interested, whether you've been a player since the first edition on GameCube or have yet to touch the latest version, New Leaf!

For those not in the know, Animal Crossing is an adorable life-simulation game series, in which the player (a human) comes to live in a village inhabited only by animals. The player can then start living their life, and engage in several activities such as fishing, bug catching, digging up fossils, running errands for neighbours, landscaping, expanding and decorating their home... there's so much to do, the game is practically endless. It has a slow pace however, and requires the player to 'do a little every day' rather than playing it through like you could with Pokémon. Nonetheless, the freedom to do exactly what you want to, combined with the cute and funny interactions with the different animal villagers, makes the game an enjoyable and relaxing experience.


Rules:

1. Follow all PC and FC&G rules.
2. Be nice and respectful towards other members.
3. Please try to stay active and on-topic.
4. Have fun!

I actually just picked up New Leaf again for the first time in ages! But yeah my first AC game was Wild World. It was so addicting and my siblings loved it as well so we had to take turns playing it haha.

Welcome, Flushed!

Yeah, the inspiration for this club also came from picking up New Leaf again after a while. I've really gotten back into it somehow!
My first game was Wild World as well, but in my case my little brother wasn't interested in it at all. He made a character but I think I may have played with it more than he did... ( ´ ▽ ` )ゞ
Was it annoying to have to share? I was always happy whenever my brother showed interest, but I can imagine it being annoying if they're constantly on your back.

Oh it was definitely fun all living in the same town and stuff, but yeah it was annoying having to take turns. We'd each get like an hour, which is not that much time at all, so every hour we'd be bugging each other to give up the DS haha.

Oh yeah, I can imagine!
I just realised in Wild World all characters lived in the same house; was it difficult to agree on who could decorate what part of the house? Or maybe nobody was interesting with decorating anyway? hehe.

Of course! Everyone's welcome to join; after all, they still belong to the same series so there should be plenty of overlap for discussion!
I personally never played City Folk though, so you'll have to bear with me regarding things I don't know

I started with the Gamecube animal crossing, and have played all of them since then, even Animal Forest. (The original Japanese N64 version.)

I played NL a lot at launch, but didn't play much since then until recently. I've been playing almost every day the last few weeks.

Welcome, QuilavaKing!
I'm the same with regards to playing NL; I picked it up again after a long hiatus, and now I really got back into it! I'm impressed you even played the Japanese Animal Forest though; you played it in Japanese then too I assume? Wasn't that difficult?

I definitely prefer having my own house to decorate too, yes ( ´ ▽ ` )ゞ not that i'm sharing my game with anyone anymore nowadays though... I assume you're not sharing yours anymore either?

Nope, got my own game these days. Kinda miss having others play in the same town though. I have to compensate by making more people myself.

Yeah, it's similar enough to the other games that I knew what was going on even without being able to understand it. I was just curious of what it was like, and unsurprisingly it's just like the Gamecube version but will less content. lol

How far into NL are you guys? I have a few hundred thousand in the bank, but haven't spent a huge amount on projects or house expansions, so I wouldn't say I'm really that far. I'm getting stuff together to start selling hybrids and other plants on The Bell Tree Forums.

I got pretty far, the only reason I didn't want to restart was because it took me forever to get Gracie to come to my town and get her shop on Main Street. I upgraded one of my houses all the way, and got quite a few bells saved up as well. And I got like hundreds of black roses everywhere, but those can be regrown pretty easily. If they were gold however, that'd be a different story. The Green Ordinance (don't remember the exact name) kept all my flowers alive in the year or so I stopped playing haha.

I'm not very far as I restarted my town in the summer, so I'm still catching up basically. But I've never been very concerned with growing hybrids and such ( ´ ▽ ` )ゞ maybe I'll get into that when my town's 'main body' is done, haha.
I really wish my villagers would suggest some more PWPs though...

Ooh, new Animal Crossing club! New Leaf was actually my first Animal Crossing game, even though I wanted to get into the series since Wild World (by the time I finally got a DS, it was almost impossible to find). I've been playing New Leaf basically every day since the North American release though, since I'm always paranoid someone's going to move out if I miss a week, haha. That said, there are probably people that have been playing about a third as long as I have, and have much nicer towns, since I haven't bothered much with pathways, PWPs, landscaping, etc.

Welcome, Brendino!

I'm the same with regards to progress in my town... I've made most progress with my house decoration, and I've laid down paths in PART of my town, but there's still so many villagers that I want out because they're in the way of a future path/PWP that I really haven't bothered much with it...
( ´ ▽ ` )ゞ
I'm very impressed that you've continued playing the entire time, though! I can't help but wonder though; do you still enjoy it or is it more of a chore, to make sure no villagers move out while you weren't paying attention?

I'd say it's become more of a routine than a chore at this point, since I wouldn't still be playing the game if I didn't enjoy it. Granted, I'm not playing for an hour or two at a time like I did when I first started, but playing for 10-15 minutes to talk to my villagers, look around for fossils and special characters, etc. keeps me entertained.

I really should get on some paths and more PWPs, but I always seem to be stuck at 9 villagers, so I don't want to start planning everything out, only to have someone move into a bad location and ruin everything. That's also why I don't use Street Pass on New Leaf anymore, just so I don't get someone's cast off villager when I least expect it.

I see. That's nice! Still, finding all fossils, visiting all shops and talking to all villagers tends to take nearly an hour for me normally! But admittedly, I also do a lot of stuff in between; watering wilting flowers and shooting down balloons should I encounter any.
You can also use PWPs to block villager houses from being placed anywhere you don't want them! At the moment I'm also using a couple yellow benches to ward off houses from an area where I want to place other PWPs later... like the wisteria trellis that hasn't been suggested yet.

On another note, it's been over a week, so time for a new topic!
Do you have a particular goal or image you want to achieve in your village? If yes, what is it?
In my case, I lack creativity, so I usually end up trying to imitate something I like. I also recently kidnapped my brother's abandoned game card, so now I have two towns to govern! One of my towns is already being modeled after Mossdeep City (ORAS style), although I haven't really made much progress landscaping-wise, and the other town will be an autumn-season town slightly inspired by Hoogland, a town in the final Professor Layton game

I actually named my town Duloc, after the city in Shrek. Shrek is my mayor, and Farquaad is another one of my players haha. We even have a fitting tune. As far as the landscaping goes, haven't really made any strides to make it similar, since Duloc isn't exactly well-documented, or in the middle of a forest. But Farquaad's house is upgraded to a castle, so that's nice.

haha, that is nice! i assume your Shrek isn't green, though? did you base him off the human Shrek that (i think) was in one of the movies?
but that's a great theme! you haven't done it yet, but do you think you'll try to make the landscaping reflect the world of Shrek as well, or just relax and decorate it as you please?

i'm still in the process of resetting for a nice layout of my Hoogland-themed town, but it's hard, cause i haven't decided on a particular layout yet... and then i start doubting myself and stuff. i'm very particular about this sort of thing, cause else i know i'll end up resetting again eventually (ノ>▽<。)ノ

He's not green haha, but not the human version either. I found these Miis online so I use the masks.
Spoiler:

And there's so much stuff already in the town and it'd be too much work to landscape it further to resemble the Shrek world.

And oh yeah resetting for a particular layout is so stressful haha. I always end up resetting for like an hour before I actually get to play the game.

I really need to get back into New Leaf. My poor town is going to be overflowing with weeds. I hope my favourite villagers haven't moved out.

Hi, Sverige! If you'd like to join, could you please fill out the sign up form as listed in the first post, so I can add you to the member list? c:

I've been really busy the past week, so sorry for my inactivity... Sadly I haven't been able to play my 3DS much either, so i just checked on my active town once in awhile and haven't done any resetting at all since nearly a week
( ´ ▽ ` )ゞ but yeah.
I really like those mii masks, Flushed! They really look like the characters. Especially Shrek is amazing, it's really impressive how people can make so many different things with the miis! like using.. eyebrows I think? for his chin... Also, if there's already 'so much' in the town, I'm really curious what it looks like!

Wild World was my first AC game, I remember being totally addicted to it. Let's Go to the City was the game that made me a huge player of it though, I went back and played the first one after that.

While I don't currently have New Leaf anymore (sad face) I'm going to get it back in the future for sure. I loved making my town as natural as I could. There'd always be flower patches outside my house, and coconut & banana trees growing on the beaches. I would've loved to have had a Japanese themed town.

Welcome, Psylocke! (From that, I assume you're also into Phoenix Wright? haha.)
As you might've read, Wild World was my first as well, but I only ever played handheld versions of it, so New Leaf is actually only the second Animal Crossing game I've touched! I really hope you can get New Leaf back - I assume you sold it or traded it in for another game? That seems to be common as far as I know. But I can totally understand you'd miss it!

I love natural themed towns as well! I'll definitely be trying to make my town feel as warm and natural as possible; specifically with an autumn feel, as that's my favourite season.

... on that note, new topic! What is your favourite season in Animal Crossing?
So, as I said, my favourite season is Autumn. I just love the warm colours the trees and everything get, and I really like the Harvest Festival event. And the cute mushrooms that grow all over the place just add to that feel even more c:
