Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Schmancy Pouch

Naughty or Nice?

I overslept a bit this morning, so I was afraid I wouldn’t make it over to my friend Euphy’s place for Naughty or Nice day, but it turns out I wasn’t late at all, so I just did chores until I saw her pop on. There’s not a whole lot going on for Naughty or Nice day. There’s an adorable cutout and an even more adorably dressed Isabelle, but that’s about it. She hands you a Holiday Stocking and you go on your merry way. I think she should randomly hand out lumps of coal too. Just for some variation.

Euphy and Vella fighting over a present. Haha!

Back in Hanabi

We have a camper today, Big Top. We’re full up, so I couldn’t invite him to move in (not that I would). I think the next camper I invite should probably be a big sister type because I haven’t had one in Hanabi and so haven’t had any of their PWPs requested—not that I could put any of them in.

Perhaps you missed the giant roaring bonfire just east of your tent?

I also picked up a lost pouch today. I asked a few people before walking into Felicity’s house. It was her “schmancy pouch”. Now I know where she keeps that too-bright blush. She rewarded me with her picture. Yes! The saying on the back is too cute.

The other thing I did today was a bit suspect. You know how I’ve been mooning about that spider crab that I need that isn’t available until March? Well, I saw a post on tumblr today detailing how to TT without losing residents. So I tried it out with Quantico. After Bif told Hotch he was moving I immediately changed the date to March 2014. No one left. And Vella came over and dove and dove and dove until she found that crab.

I visited two more ACUKE dream towns today as well: The husband and wife IRL towns of Valysar and Methos. I started with Valysar: 7800-2183-7793

Stalk Market for Wednesday, November 6

AM: 56 Bells
PM: 52 Bells

For the first time in a long time I feel like I have a lot to report from Hanabi. I don’t really have a lot, but it’s nice to have something other than “today we had no visitors.”

Who are you again?

Also for the first time in a long time I ran into Phineas. I had no clue what he might be giving me a badge for since I haven’t really been striving for anything. Turns out it was for all of those favors I do for everybody.

Fishing

I only need one more bug (the dung beetle) to complete my bug encyclopedia, but I feel like I need a lot of fish. I haven’t investigated which ones I’m missing and when I should be able to complete my fish encyclopedia. I think I need four more? Something like that. I turned on my 3DS while snuggled in bed the other day and I caught the blowfish and football fish I needed for this month.

I also dove around a little and caught a red king crab. So I believe the only critter I have left to catch for the month is the horsehair crab.

Meet Olive…and Octavian

Tuesday morning I reset quite a few times (creating a new character each time) to get Octavian’s house in a respectable location. On several startups he had plopped his house down left of the police station—where I intended to put my new character’s house. My hope was that he would put his house roughly where Kitt’s was because I liked having houses surrounding the money trees and fountain. Octavian had other plans. He put his house in my tree grove, in the middle of my path, and by the police station over and over. Then once I reset and couldn’t find it. When I walked over by town hall, it was all staked out next to it. I didn’t even know there was room for a house there. I figured I’d leave Octavian there to keep Isabelle company.

That's Octavian's home plot and in front of it is my new resident: Olive.

After getting Octavian’s real estate squared away I had to worry about my new character. Her name has a funky circle as the “O” for the heck of it.

I don't know the character entity for a filled in circle so I can't type it correctly.

I found out that even though Octavian refused to put his house left of Rooney’s, there’s enough room there for me to put a new character’s house. I decided against it because in order to place it I have to set it back from the path quite a bit.

I decided Olive is a fraidy cat and thus needs her home next to the police station.

I don’t know where to put it!!!

Tia requested a flower arch. I love the flower arch, but I haven’t had it requested in any of my towns and kind of forgot about it so I didn’t leave room for one. Now I really want to put it in but I don’t know where an arch would fit.
I should update my dream town and see if anyone can suggest a spot. 😉

New Townie finally!

At long last, Octavian moved in today. I love that the outside if his house (though not the roof or door) kind of matches town hall.

Octavian's new digs. Hmmm what color flowers would compliment his house?

I also had Redd again. He shows up just to taunt me. I bought a proper painting. I don’t need it, so if anyone needs it, speak up.

Olive meets Octavian

Octavian was talking smack about Vella to Olive. He made it sound like Vella twisted his tentacles to move in, but really it was his idea to play rock-paper-scissors. Octopus lies. Noted.

I’m still trying to go easy on the Animal Crossing. I haven’t turned on Kasen today. Yumi was seething as she introduced herself to Kitt yesterday…

Still no Golden Closet

Quantico had a windfall from an ore rock, plus Vella had saved up a few gold nuggets I had forgotten about, so I was able to make 3 pieces of golden furniture. Unfortunately none of them were what I was looking for. I got:

HNI_0089
Golden Dresser. I always think I need this one. Then I realize I don’t…
HNI_0001

Don’t need this either.

HNI_0026

Didn’t I just get you? I wish you could remake the golden furniture into some other piece of golden furniture. Can’t Cyrus just melt it down? Alpaca, please!

Phineas Sighting

I never know what Phineas is going to bring me when he shows up, but I’m always happy to see him. This time he brought me the silver “Seafood Encyclopedia” badge for completing 80% of my sea creature encyclopedia. I’m getting closer to diving completion.

Saharah’s Redecorating Nightmare

We hosted Saharah in town. I think her 3,000 bells are a ripoff. She didn’t do either Vella or Locke any favors in remaking their rooms.

Happy Home VIP

Locke got a letter in the mail from the HHA stating she’d scored 300,000 points in her evaluation and to come pick up her prize. Turns out she unlocked the golden roof. I’m contemplating whether I want to try and raise Locke’s VIP score and turn her hut/mansion into a golden zen house, but I think with all the landscaping that may look funny. My original plan was to turn her house gold and then make a third character (finally) and do his/her house as the resort style. I’m still toying with that idea.

I’d like to get a camper that I want to move in (or maybe steal one of Quantico’s cuties—Carmen, Flurry, or Ankha) and then use the create new character cheat to get a good house placement and then just keep the character around instead of deleting them. I digressed a bit there…

And that’s the news from Hanabi. Aside from Barold trying to move (NO!) and Julian trying to steal my gold nugget for a pittance (again NO!). Oh! I updated the dream suite. There’s not too much new in town, but I’ve been trying to add a few more pieces of bamboo to town for a more, um zen, feel. I think I may regret it as they take over everything, but it’s rather pretty while I keep it in check. And the bamboo shoots sell for quite a bit to boot.

Why can't the badge be based off of people who have visited my town instead of the other way around?

Hanabi isn’t hugely popular. But we’ve had a few dreamers. 🙂

Oh and I posted another pikopuri Halloween QR Code on Tumblr. I made a pineapple dress from their October design book as well. Maybe I’ll post that tomorrow.

PM: Didn’t check.

Let’s see, a lot has happened since last I blogged. First off, I think I’m getting sick so this could be another picture-heavy, text-shy posts. Second, thanks to everyone for visiting either of my towns for moon viewing (though there was no moon present and I actually didn’t see it in game…)

Camper

I had the pleasure of hosting Agent S at the campsite. I had her in my City Folk game for a while. Too bad Kitt’s not packing up until tomorrow. I would have invited her to move in.

I have a little campground love going on. It seems I'm always snapping pics of it...

Autumn Moon

Yesterday I don’t think I did nothing in game but host. I had both towns open (Kasen was much more popular) for guests to receive dangos and wheat bundles. Thank you so much to everyone for visiting. And thanks so much for all of the wish-list items! I’m inching ever closer to a completed catalog. 🙂

I only visited one other village yesterday. I forgot that I had gotten to see the Autumn Moon. It was very early!

Ok, I did get to see the Autumn Moon: in SomSom village at 7am. ;) Thanks Mikayla!

The Korean and Japanese cutouts were the same and Isabelle was wearing the same outfit in the Korean and Japanese games.

It’s back to business as usual. We had no visitors today, and I’m ok with that. I slowly watered and said hello to all my townies and that’s about it.

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Missing Piece of My Heart

Stalk Market for Wednesday, September 11

AM: 69 Bells
PM: 60 Bells

Yesterday I was busy and didn’t get to play much except for short train rides, so I was more or less in maintenance mode.

Nice

Julian gave me a “Nice” painting. I don’t need that one in either of my towns (probably do in Quantico). There’s no forgery for that one, so if anyone needs it let me know.
HNI_0073

I had a whirlwind game of hide and seek that I somehow won just before my train arrived and that’s pretty much all that happened.
HNI_0083
Well, that and I completed my red riding hood outfit. Do I need glasses for it?

Anyone wanna come over wearing the wolf hood and chase me around?

Badge Man!!

Today I had a bit more time to play. Phineas showed up in town. Once again I thought it was probably the badge for doing requests for townies, but he gave me the weeding badge! I’ve had Hanabi on wealthy town partly so that I can pull weeds every day. I’ve also been buying miscellaneous flower bags and planting them, letting them wilt and plucking a few each day.

HNI_0088

HNI_0089

HNI_0090

Now the only badge I don’t have (at all) is the dream suite badge. I really need to stop being lazy and just go visit other towns. I like to be inspired by other towns, but often times I visit other towns and just feel like Hanabi is pretty dull even with all the time and effort I’ve put into it. :\

Public Works

Barold tried to move. I emphatically denied his move. Then he decided we needed a sandbox in Hanabi. I guess I could have put that in the playground, but honestly I think the sandbox is pretty ugly.

But...it's ugly. Can't you just play with the sand pattern on the ground?

Here’s what the zen garden looks like currently. I’m not sure what I want to do with public works next. I suppose I need to run around Rooney a bit and try and get him to suggest the zen bell, but I think my building spree is done for a little while.

Redd’s Forgery Gallery

Redd only had one legitimate painting today, the wild painting which I also don’t need. Completing at least one of my art wings is proving frustrating. Anyone need the wild painting?
