There are a lot of design features that prevent fast progress. I'm a little further ahead but not by a lot. There's only so much you can do on the first few days it seems. Enjoying it so far looking forward for the world to finally open up a bit.

So played ACNH for 3 days (+15hrs) so far and I am enjoying it. Barely scratched the surface.

It isn't a game you can finish in 10 hrs in one sitting because it just won't let you. It's a game designed for longevity that rewards you for checking in regularly for, from what I can see, up to a year to see everything. The day/time passes in real time so there's no rush.

Been having a blast with it so far.

But.... there is one thing I don't like...


THE GODDAMN TOOLS KEEP BREAKING!

In all the previous games, only the axe brook. This is some BS that Nintendo needs to stop adding to their games. It was bad enough in Breath of the Wild, but I can kind of understand it because they wanted you to try out all the weapons. But in Animal Crossing, there's no reason for this crap!

Well, yeah. I'm sure tool breakages were part of the game design because more tool breakages > more tool crafting + 'miles' points, for crafting & breakages. There's got to be more advanced tool materials than what you find in first few days.

As long as the game doesn't break...!

So more progress yesterday but the progress is slow in coming and I do kind of appreciate that instead of having all game features dumped at once. The world opens up one item or building/feature/map-area at a time so it leaves a lot of time for exploration & collecting.

You know, I started to write about how I think, for the most part, it's fine that the tools break (maybe I've played too many games with that mechanic for it to annoy me in AC) but then I found out that the golden tools broke. That right there is bull crap. And considering
[Show spoiler]that you have to capture one of every bug and fish to even get the recipe for the golden fishing rod and bug net
, it makes the usefulness of the extended life of the golden tools kind of moot.

Sorry about that. I didn't consider something like that much of a spoiler to be honest. I blocked out the method of getting the golden tools but I don't think the fact the game has golden tools is much of a spoiler, considering they're a series staple. I looked into the golden tools because my initial reply was to theorize that they would would be unbreakable, something I think many would agree would be a decent reward for achieving the goals to get them. And with the disappointment with breakable items, I figured it's better to be disappointed now at the fact that golden tools are breakable than to get pissed at find that out after spending all the time and effort into doing the tasks to get them.

Does anyone here have the special Animal Crossing version of the Nintendo Switch? If so, you get a special Switch model on your island. Anyone want to visit my island with it and give it to me? (Extra can be bought from the Nook shop catalog)

I have oranges (starting fruit), cherries (mailed to me), and coconuts on my island.

I've visited about 10 mystery islands but all have had either oranges or cherries.

Does anyone know for sure that the only way to get the other fruit is to visit a friends island?

The problem with the Ticket islands being random, itís a total crapshoot what youíll get. Iíve bought 12 tickets, all except 1 had apples. Also some people online are reporting getting islands with bamboo, I have yet to get that island. I have a bunch of DIY recipes that require bamboo, but no actual bamboo to use with them.

The first AC on the Gamecube is still the most enjoyable of them all for me.

Tom Nook is going to remodel Resident Services tomorrow and said it would be closed for a day. Does that mean no access to the ATM? Should I start taking money out and stockpiling it in my house? Also will I be able to pay him off for my house tomorrow? Will he be around?

Tom Nook nor the ATM are around for me while resident services is expanding. I bought two Nook tickets so I'll be using those tonight, should have bought more.

I have been on bamboo island so I guess the odds are just set very low for other fruit. Will keep trying. Not that I have seen much benefit to having all fruit.

You get Nook Miles for planting all the fruit. I have a stamp for everything except oranges.

I got the bamboo island today.

I have bamboo and pears (my starting fruit) I can give to anyone who needs it. I'm on the lookout for apples and peaches at this point. I have pears, oranges, and cherries. I can give away some oranges in a few days once my tree grows.

Started this a couple of days ago.... I reset my first go at it because I got pears and I'm not a fan, lol. Got peaches on my second try.

The game is beautiful. I just love how the breeze causes the subtle movement in the trees.

I'm seeing a lot of complaints online that the game is kinda bare-bones content and furniture-wise, but it's almost guaranteed that they'll be slow-dripping that stuff out over the next year.

I could use some of that bamboo. I mailed a buddy of mine 3 apples, and asked for some of his oranges, he mailed me one orange today. It's planted, will take a few days to grow. Right now I'm waiting for a meteor shower* because they announced one will be happening on my island today, but some time tomorrow if you want to visit my island with bamboo that would be cool.

*I've been looking at the sky for 3 hours so far, waiting. Apparently on days you're announced to get one, it can show up any time from 7pm to 4am.

I know someone that got pears as their native fruit, and they are allergic to pears.
