probablynotaponyfan asked: WHY DID YOU STOP POSTING I MISS YOU SO MUCH ;-;-;-;-;
Oh MAN I am really sorry I’ve just been acclimating to university and it’s been crazy and like a month has passed since I did anything on Tumblr and I’ve neglected New Leaf SO MUCH like I’m pretty sure my villagers are resorting to cannibalism now. :’(
Things are starting to settle down so I’ll hopefully have time to post a lil’ more but I feel like a total butt right now SORRY. D:

Anonymous asked: im getting the AC3ds bundle thing like the special edition thing soon (hopefully) because i found one for £200 and well yeah and idk why im telling you im just super excited to play animal crossing again because im planning on playing it slow again like i used to with the gamecube one because with the ds and the wii version hacking kinda ruined it for me and i was obsessed with bells but u know the new one just seems way more relaxing and IM SO EXCITED AH
Haha, anon, I mentally had to take I deep breath after I read this, because it came out as one giant SUPER EXCITED sentence. I’m happy that you managed to snag a bundle! It’s so convenient, having the game everywhere you go.
I’m gonna warn you right now: getting the bundle in the post is an emotional experience. Seriously, set aside at least a couple of hours to just play New Leaf, otherwise you’ll wind up being up until 2:30 am just taking it all in. It’s intense.
But yay! Have fun!

Anonymous asked: do neighbors actually help pay for the public work projects? because it seems like im the only one putting any money into it... D:
Well, I’m not 100% certain how the game is programmed, but here’s how I would assume (based on personal experience) it’s done:
Neighbours will contribute to your public works projects, but only if you let the project go on for at least a day. When I built my first project (a cobblestone bridge), I found that on the second day, one of my neighbours donated about 280 bells to the project. Which is kind of like tipping your server with a dime, in terms of actually contributing, but I suppose that saved me a sea bass-and-a-half of pocket change.
However, the more projects that I’ve built, the more I’ve noticed neighbours contributing (still not much, but around the 2000 bell range). Whether this is because the projects are more expensive, or because citizen satisfaction is higher, or some other factor is beyond me, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the game was coded so that happier citizens = more support for public works projects.
I would also imagine that they put a cap on how much of a project can be funded by NPCs, to prevent greedy player characters from building a McMansion while their town goes without so much as a street lamp. But if you want to see more villager contributions, you have to let the projects continue for at least two or three days. It might not hurt to try sprucing up your town too (planting/watering flowers, planting more trees, etc.), which could bolster citizen satisfaction, creating more support (possibly — again, this is just a theory. Correlation =/= causation)
TL;DR: Yeah, neighbours do, but you’re still kind of responsible for picking up most of the slack when it comes to public works projects.

Anonymous asked: where did you get the sweet flag design of ron swanson?
Hey, anon! Thank you!
I actually copied the design by hand (there’s a more detailed explanation here). Fortunately, some wonderful anon had the QR machine in their Able Sisters’ shop, and was courteous enough to hand-copy the design and create a QR code for it. You can find it here.
Alternately, you can come visit my town via Dream Suite! I have pattern sharing turned on, so you should be able to find Wendell wandering around. He should be able to give you the pattern as well!
Hope this helps!

So, fun fact: I went to Club LOL yesterday, and this was the emotion that Shrunk had taught me. I originally took this screencap last night with the intent of posting it with the uninspired caption “You wanna hear a Glee joke? Season 4.”
But in light of the loss of Cory Monteith late last night, this is taking a slightly more bittersweet tone. (I don’t know if any of you guys are Glee fans, but Tumblr’s kind of exploded in a big way over his death, so I’m sure you’re all at least vaguely aware of what’s happened. Even if you’re not a part of the fandom, I’m sure you can appreciate how hard this has hit those that were/are fans of the show.)
Animal Crossing’s gotten me through a lot over the years, and somehow, despite me knowing that it’s lines of code packaged into a cute little digestible format, things like this mean a lot to me. Glee meant a lot to me (even though I think that Season 4 was disastrous, and I can’t imagine what a nightmare Season 5 will be now). Cory meant a lot to me, in that way that celebrities can.
But rather than wallowing in sorrow, now is a time to remember to feel the positive. Yesterday seemed like bad news on top of bad news on top of bad news. But we can make it through, as long as we remember what we’ve been taught.
We can feel Glee again.

probablynotaponyfan asked: So i went to your dream place and messed with your town. Im sorry but i took the swanson design and hung it up 1000 times in my room.
OMG no I love it when people use the Dream Suite for destruction. I actually found a town that was nearly identical in name (both character and town) to a girl who used to bully me in middle school (she had Animal Crossing as well) and I took extraordinary delight in cutting down every single tree in the place.
And you should take screenshots of your Swanson-fied room and submit them! I love seeing how people are co-opting the design (especially when it’s creepy!)
