THE ANIMAL CROSSING FAN CLUB



Hello everyone! This is the new clubhouse for one of my favorite games: Animal Crossing!
I started playing Animal Crossing New Leaf back in 2018 and then, when I got my new Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch (aka the coolest and cutest console ever created) by the end of 2020, I started New Horizons. I really love the game and the series in general and I bet there are many fans here too!
I know many people stopped playing, but this is also an occasion to get your game back and show your love for the series!

The idea of this clubhouse is pretty simple: talking about everything that relates to the Animal Crossing series: might they be old and new games experiences, pics your Island, your villagers, art you find on the Internet, Animal Crossing related clothes, discussing the old and new games features, fantasizing about the new games and so on. Basically, whatever you want!

The interesting part of this clubhouse is that I would like to keep it alive and try to create a small community, even if we are on a Pokémon forum. That's why I came up with an idea: THE TRADE CENTER. If you need villagers, specific items, clothes and so on, you can ask here. Simply write, at the end of your post, "LOOKING FOR:" in "bold" text and colored in "DarkOrchid" and then using the spoiler tag, put the category of the thing/villager you are looking for. On the other hand, if you want to give away something or a villager, you might write "GIVING AWAY:" at the end of the post and follow the same rules explained before. The categories are:

- VILLAGER
- ITEM
- CLOTHES
- ELSE

Then you need to specify exactly what you are looking for. It’s easier to do than to explain it lol, so here’s a couple of examples.


LOOKING FOR:

VILLAGER: Judy


GIVING AWAY:

VILLAGER: Judy

Who’s your favorite NPC?
Indeed Isabelle. She's cute, nice and sometimes quite silly. I am not a fan of the "silly and funny character". I feel like she had more personality in New Leaf tho. Another of my fav characters is surely Gracie: nice design and nice "story arch". I am kinda sad she didn't really make it to New Horizons.

Who’s your favorite villager?
I'd say it generally changes and depends on the moment and various experiences. For now, it's definitely Judy. She's so unique and particular! She's cute and I like having her around.

Who’s your favorite NPC? (elaborate as much as you want): Celeste is too cute and precious.
Who’s your favorite villager? (elaborate as much as you want): So many!! But I absolutely adore Willow, she may be my favorite. So cute and elegant even if she is a snooty. I also like Lolly, Kid Cat, Raymond, Stitches, Judy, and many more. <3

There are so many good villager options that it outright hurts sometimes that they only give us 10 villager slots. I could easily get 20 I really like and make space for them!!

Welcome to the fan club! So glad to have you here~
Celeste is indeed very cute and nice and a very interesting NPC! Also, the villagers you have mentioned are all pretty good. I personally think I have a preference for the snooty villagers ahah. Also, no surprise your fav village is a sheep hehe~

Coincidently, I turned on New Leaf again yesterday. For some reason I had so many mice species villagers. I've never payed off my house debt in any Animal Crossing game and New Leaf was no exception either apparently. So many distractions. Hopefully New Horizons will be the first.

Yeeey! Welcome to the club!
I restarted New Leaf some time ago and indeed it's a pretty mice game, but I have much to do! Blathers is indeed a nice NPC and obviously one of my fav ones. If only he had more dialogue lines... He becomes a little repetitive when you spend much time in the game, but surely still one of the best ones! He's also really cute ahah~

Never had Jeremiah in any of my towns/island, but indeed he looks like a funny villager to have around!

Blathers is always so cute lol ^-^

Yep, I have a bunch of my fav villagers. I hunted for them and it took me almost a year lol. I have several fav villagers and tbh I haven't played mnay games, so I need some variety and actually see the ones I like the most. There are indeed some that got my attention, like Ankha, Judy, Julian, Zucker. I really love those because they are all really unique and all of them are in my Island hehe (laugh full of satisfaction).

Here's my villagers list:

I will also take this occasion to show my Island, but it will probably be a very long tour! I encourage you to show your Island/Town as well, if you wish!

Here we go! (Notice that I had already done something similar so there are old and new pics!). Also notice the fabulous piplup dress, that I downloaded. It's really cute!

Spoiler:

WESTERN PART










You can recognize it! This part is my love/hate part lol. Actually very more love than hate: this part is based on my first Pokémon game which is Pokémon Diamond, that is also my all time fav game, so it had to be in my personal Island lol. This part is based on Twinleaf Town and Lake Verity with the path that takes to Sandgem Town -> (which is not represented in my Island). My house is where is located the main character's house in Pokémon Diamond. The bad news about this part of my Island is that I needed tons of trees to make it. It's not the fact that it was INDEED exhausting, but unfortunately it's the reason why my Island evaluation can't get over 4 stars, but honestly, I don't care because I love this part of my island the way it is. It took ma a bit of time but I tried to represent that part of the Sinnoh region in the best way.

I am a bit undecided on using the same kind of flower for the grass area. I went for different kinds because I like variety and I used that for almost every space in need of flowers of my Island.

OH NO, I HAVE NO POKEMON AND A WILD STARLY IS ATTACKING ME!



Ok, I can now stop being dumb lol.


CENTRAL PART

I am going to divide it into three regions. The northern part where there is a music hall, the Main Plaza, which is just under the Music Hall and the Path that takes to the back of the Town Hall.






There are cellos and a piano. It took me much time to do that, not only to find the right items (especially the Statues), but also all the terraforming that you can also see on the Island Map. I am not sure it's 100% completed, because while I am pretty much ok with it right now, I was thinking to add two white harps next to the piano.






Nothing much to say lol. I am not good at drawing so I decided to stick with normal designs. There are some exceptions, but in general I decided to go with the default ones. Happy with this choice because, if ever want to change the design, I can. But I don't think I will lol. This plaza is important because it basically connects the different parts of my Island.






This part is quite nice. It didn't take me much time to terraforming it, so I am happy with the idea and the results. Nothing too complicated but I needed something to connect the northern part with the southern one. I wasn't really sure of this part of my Island because it's right behind the Town Hall, but tbh I don't mind it, it's actually very nice and useful because, as I said, it connects North and South of Atlantis.


SOUTHERN PART

It's really diverse because there are many different things. Maybe I should have started from here because it's the first part you see when you visit the Island, but it doesn't really matter. This one is the entrance.






When you enter my Island you have three possible ways: you go ahead where the real entrance is, you can go on the left and there's a path that takes you to the sea, or you can go right where there are other parts of the Island (Statues Garden, Museum Entrance and the other coast of the Island). Well, I didn't really take pics of the right and left paths of the Island because they weren't so important lol. So, let's just go ahead.







There are basically 5 main areas. I wasn't sure of this part because it looks like too many things in one space, but on the other hand, the rest of the Island takes so much space for few stuff and I wanted my Island to be lively and rich for my Villagers lol. So, the 5 areas: in the first pic, on the right there is the Waiting Room with some chairs and distributors. On the left, the path continues and there are the other 4 areas:
- restaurant
- dj booth with gyroids, which is kinda a bar
- small library
- ramen shop. It can't be really noticed, but on the stand there's written ramen in Japanese lol. That's a design I made and it took me some time. It's not a complicated design so it wasn't too hard and not too time wasting. Still took me some time tho.


Then there is the Passage for the Canal and the Canal itself.








This is my most incomplete part of the Island, because the Canal itself is empty. I need some ideas but especially items lol. I wanted to make it very flowery, even tho I have flowers basically everywhere. I can't really explain the style, but I was thinking something like Paris in 19th century: classy but also rich of colors. I probably want some pink maybe. And black to create some contrast. So, yeah. Few ideas lol






This is on the left of the Town Hall. It is where I keep the rocks and where I cultivate things like carrots, tomatoes and so on. As you can see it's not really a clean area because moving the rocks required me to cover the whole Island with things, so bell trees and clumps of weeds tended to spawn here. Also from the Island tours I wasn't so lucky and often got the same kinds of plant. I wanted this kind of garden to be diverse, but I wasn't lucky enough to get different things but mainly carrots and pumpkin lol. Also yeah from here you can notice the design I made for the ramen stand lol.



EASTERN PART

Here there are the Statues Garden, the Museum Entrance, Villagers' houses and basically all the facilities lol. While it may look like it's kinda bad to have all the main facilities on one side of the Island, it's REALLY comfortable.








I think it's actually better than what it looks like in these pics lol. You can see it's basically finished, I only need ONE statue, which goes on the left space in the 2nd pic. The one I want there is the Rock-Head statue or Gulliver's Moai statue. I haven't found neither of them rip.


Next stop is Museum Entrance.





This is my Japanese part of the Island. It's not complete yet and yeah it looks like it's full of random stuff. I am experimenting tbh. I want some katana that I can get from Gulliver. I am not 100% convinced everything is going to stay there, but I decided to try how this part looked like with basically every Oriental style item I have. I want those lanterns to make a path to the Museum. At night this would look incredible. If I am not wrong the DIY of those lanterns is dropped during the Hanami season. Shouldn't be hard to get, but Judy first lol. Also yeah, I am going to customize the kimono stands.
Yes I made that pavement design that imo looks quite good with the Japanese fence and yes it's not too hard. Luckily the pattern is repeated, so It didn't require me to make too many designs, probably 8 or 9.
In the end you can notice a word written in Japanese and that's Museum (obviously lol). It is read as "hakubutsukan". That part took me some time. Because at first it was too small so i had to remake it and I mean writing kanji is hard irl, imagine with pixel art lol. It's true pixels may help, but it still requires much precision and some time. Anyway, I am pretty happy with my result.






I mean this one speaks for itself lol. Near the Museum, some sort of small Park that works for another Museum Entrance for someone who comes from the Town Hall, instead that from South. It's decorated with fossils and nothing more.






This is where Villagers live. There are seven of their houses. Three rows of houses: 2 of three houses and the last one with only one house. The reason for that is because it's near to the central plaza and all the other facilities.
I took just one pic because there's not much to see. Looking at the Map of my Island, you can easily see how this part is organized. This part is complete, but I may upload some new pics in case I come up with new ideas or simply to show it better.






Anyway, nothing much to say here as well. You can see the second main plaza. Around it there are all the main facilities, basically making this part of the Island the shopping point and the economic center of Atlantis. Well, I am trying to build a bell tree garden, but I am still pretty much working on that, especially because some spots don't really seem to work. I am also really unsure about that, but I am experimenting! Here it is, for now:



So, that's basically everything. Sorry if this was long or boring, but yes this is my Island and as you can see there are still parts of it that need to be completed!

So, today there are (there will be, for most of you) fireworks in Animal Crossing! I have recently started to replay Animal Crossing New Leaf, since a friend of mine asked me. I have never really paid any attention to those little events like fireworks and sometimes even tournaments. Contrary to my expectations, it was quite a cool moment, especially if you have a friend to share it with! Here there are my pics!

Spoiler:









On a more general note, do you like these kinds of "small events" in Animal Crossing? Do you usually attend them? Do you actually enjoy them?

I honestly feel like I forget about them half the time, whoops! Fireworks are adorable and are one of the ones I do remember paying attention to though, they used to make me really happy in NL. <3
