Bug-Off + Exploring Bundeena

I woke up Saturday morning to see that most of the trees I planted alongside my new leaf-strewn path are growing! 😀

Baabara misses you, Kammile. I’ll try to successfully reunite the two of you! 😛

Looks like a string of episodes about Timmy and Tommy has begun:

Shouldn’t they each get their own paychecks, though? 😕

This morning I found Kaitlin in Dafdilly looking for her lost daughter again. Asphodel was a temporary town I created with one of my extra gamecards to visit & clear my ninth slot before Pierce moved (so that he would be alone in my ninth slot when I WiFied with Teru). Unfortunately, I’ve already deleted that town, so it looks like Kaitlin will be hanging around for a while. >_<

My new neighbor to replace Pierce is Maple! I’ve had her before in a previous town, she’s really nice. 🙂 I was expecting a normal villager to move in since I didn’t have any at the time. She looks like a “new” Maple, so hopefully this is a good sign that (other than Pierce) my slots were clear!

This is her house. I should probably axe down that orange tree. >_>

This morning I visited Teru’s town Bundeena, home of Rain (her main WiFi character), Sidney (her main character), and Breeze. The reason for the visit was to move Pierce back to Bundeena, his original home, but I forgot about the purpose because I had such a good time exploring her town! xP

The first thing I see when I step through her gate is my favorite constellation, 13th Zodiac! 😀 Then Rain came out of the gate right behind me.

Two flower girls in a field of dandelions. 😛 I usually run over individual dandelions (she said runs over them, too, which must be especially pretty with all of them in one place, and petals flying all over the place!) that pop up because I thought they were weeds. It looks like they aren’t, though, because Bundeena is a perfect town.

Mathilda’s house is so nice. 🙂 I love this house style and shape!

A little clearing in her cedar forest with red and black tulips. ^_^

I think this is one of Bundeena’s signature spots: all these pansies in the colors of the rainbow by the shops and town hall, which are right next to each other, creating a town square effect. Also, apparently I walked over the pond. 😆

I also love this blue, purple, and black garden spot by her house. And I vented about the fact that I haven’t gotten a blue rose yet. xP

This is my favorite spot in her town! 😀 I think it has a romantic, fairytale feel with the single gold rose.

Her house is nearby and we go inside:

Yay, I was happy to see she made use of the lullaboids I gave her on our first wi-fi meeting! I just think they look lovely in white rooms and their sounds go so well with a music box. I also love her new wallpaper!

The first thing I noticed when I walked into this room was her self-made butterfly shirt! 😯 It’s so perfect for her vibrant mush room. ^_^ She said she used a square picture of the real Gracie shirt as a guide for making her own version, which I call smart, not cheating! 😛 (I’ve actually thought about doing that myself before. :P) I have the official guidebook for Wild World — never use it anymore, it’s not that great — but one cool thing about it is that it has square views of all clothes, carpet, and wallpaper. There are scans of these in sunmarsh’s guide on ACC.

She offered to let me pick it up at her Ables’, which I did immediately. xD

The pattern also looks great as an umbrella and especially amongst these pansies! You could probably say that about many areas in her town, though. 😛

Ahh, yes, I was looking forward to seeing the spot where Rain lured Tortimer away from his fishing tourney duties so long ago. 😀

Aww, it’s the garden where Pierce used to live. I hope he moves back in the same spot!

I’ve disappeared. xD I don’t have any really dense orchards like this in my town; it looks like it was hard work.

This is where I missed a shooting star because I was holding an umbrella (Rain looks disappointed for me :lol:), but I saw another one later and didn’t miss it that time! 🙂

I showed her what my favorite spot in her town is. ^_^ One day I want Dafdilly to have a whimsical feel with lots of pastel hybrids everywhere; Teru said it already gives this feel, which I was surprised and happy to hear because I thought I had too many common flowers. 😛 Well, my previous paths probably helped. 😛 Oh, and I was surprised to see she still had the lilac dress she got from my Ables’ during our first wi-fi meeting!

Rain looks so cute asleep amongst the flowers!

The last things we had time to do after exploring her town were visiting Anabelle and Cyrano.

Yay, Anabelle remembered me! She wants new clothes, but I don’t blame Teru if she doesn’t give her any; I think the butterfly outfit really suits her! 😛

The outside of Anabelle’s house is another one of Bundeena’s lovely spots. 🙂

Haha, it cracks me up when crankies say this.

My first thought was that Teru doesn’t have any characters that look like me, but I guess human characters probably all look similar to him. 😛 He must be referring to Sidney.

Saying our goodbyes. 😦 Thank you again for having me over! I hope Pierce moves in soon! 😀

I arrive back in Dafdilly and there’s already a letter from Cyrano! No present, though; I wonder why sometimes there is one and sometimes there isn’t.

I completely forgot about the bug-off today, so it’s good I happened to be playing at the time. I forgot about all the previous bug-offs, too, so this is my first one.

I have no idea how this happened… I don’t really like Curly, so I don’t talk to him much and I’ve never done an errand for him or sent him a letter.

Well, here’s what it looks like:

I caught quite a few butterflies for the bug-off, matching Teru’s butterfly shirt that I was wearing: 😀

Though no matter how many monarch and tiger butterflies, long locusts, migratory locusts, or grasshoppers I turned in, I always got this message from Tortimer. 😦

We’ll see, Lobo. 😈

Lobo was in the lead until I caught this birdwing butterfly, which set a new record. I’m not sure if I won or not, though; someone could’ve caught a larger birdwing later.

This is the new side path I’ve been working on, just plain bricks. I’ve only completed this bit on my island (connecting the two bridges), though.

  1. I *also* had the same Tommy & Timmy Episode as you,Nook said that the way to tell them apart was their moles 😆 Oops! Its in here! 😳
    I’ll try to post the 2nd Episode,because i’m keeping the 1st Episode hidden for awhile.. wait.. that means!! WOO-HOO! We can wi-fi so i can give you my Apply TV & Lovely Phone and the Cabin Chair too of course 😉 BUT… If the Delivery comes early i *could* give you that! but for the time being please wait,alert me if Baabara’s Moving but please!! NOT IN MY CAMPING DAYS!! >_< Oh,I hope!

    • Oh and Flowers can cancel the Appearance of a Weed. 🙂
      They said that on a page called “How to have a Perfect Town on AC:WW”
      but i bet there’s LOTS of pages that are called like that! 😛

      • Ah yeah, that’s true; flowers can cancel out lots of things, like fossils you haven’t found, items on the ground (I know this one well :P), too many trees, too little trees, and probably more. xD They’re the most essential part of getting a perfect town! A lot of the guides I’ve read aren’t consistent when it comes to whether or not clovers, dandelions, and dandelion puffs are weeds. I just figured that since there were so many in one acre, it would’ve had an affect on the town rating… I really don’t know though! Anyway, they’re fun and pretty to run through. 😆

  2. 😳 Again.. I hate myself for doing this,i mean i read half of a post and then comment,read the full forgot a thing.. ugh… I hope you won’t mind! 😛
    If you’d like You could join the comments together as one. 🙂

    OK,comment time…
    I LOVE the new side paths that you made! >_< I'm actually jealous!
    As i try to copy it.. which ends into an Epic Failure! 😛
    Sorry,I couldn't ask for permission but can i copy that pattern and i mean

    just the diagonal way like you did on your Island, It's ok, because we both have
    islands anyway xP Sorry,If this makes this request a little too *cheezy* (i hope not)
    I see that your doing a pattern page but for an awesome Pattern Maker like you?
    I couldn't beat any of your designs, I also wish Teru has a Pattern Page! 😛
    She's awesome at making them! xD

    Please? 😐 Well,Thank You~ :]

    • It’s fine, I know this was a long post. xP
      Thanks, I’m glad you like it! Here are some instructions I threw together real quick! They’re basically mirror images of each other.
      As for the pattern page (and guides, too :P), they’re currently privately published and I’m still working on them. I just don’t want to have too many under construction pages (like my Trildale one :lol:).
      Aww thank you! I think you’re a great pattern maker! 😀 As for me, I don’t think I’m naturally that good at drawing or making patterns, but I enjoy challenging myself with them.

      • Hehe, I would like to mess around with the colors,changing it to blue? 😛
        I think the original idea was awesome,i can’t put the pattern on my town too much, but i would like to test it as a main path pattern 😆

        but only temporary,i’ll change it right away,just a testing 😆

        Thanks for giving me the instructions, You’ll be an AWESOME pattern maker if you open up your pattern page already. 😀

  3. Heehee,I copied it! it’s on my island right now! but it was reversed version of yours because the path goes left to right. :mrgreen: You can see it after we wi-i or after i post a new one on Saturday or Sunday.. 😛

    • haha cool! I also have the reversed version for other areas in my town. Just finished all my new side paths last night. 🙂

  4. urgen link Amy!!! It’s about Mayu… Please press this,http://kiyasjournal.wordpress.com/2011/09/21/join-the-uprising-visit-mayus-minicity-mitsukyo/

  5. Haha, nice picture of nervous Nook at the end of his episode there 😛

    Ah, so that’s what I look like sleeping. Looks like my head will topple off 😛 You got some nice pictures in my town, despite it being nighttime! ^_^ I didn’t remember that everything would be bluish till after we set the time ^^;

    As for dandelions and clovers… I just assumed they did no damage to your town status after reading so in a couple of guides that sounded like they knew what they were talking about. And you probably saw that my town is rife with clovers 😛

    Btw, here is what I meant when I said ripped sprites. As you can see, being on the computer you get the clothing designs pixel for pixel, so it doesn’t take much brainwork to copy it onto your canvas after you enlarge the image so you can see better. Lots of the palettes don’t seem to match, though.
    (Btw, isn’t it fascinating that all those items in the game come from those flat, rigid sprites whose shapes and sizes are all at odds with their final products? :mrgreen:)

    Thanks for the visit and taking all those pictures! ^_^ I had a great time too ^^ Nobody has packed up to move yet so I still don’t know who is in my 9th slot xP But maybe it’s a certain awesome, featherbrained someone? 😛

    Btw, nice job on that footpath! The edges blend in perfectly o_o

    • Ah god, it’s a mini essay without the spaces ‘_’

      • Yeah, it’s really a shame that my theme does that… I wonder why. -_-
        I especially wasn’t sure about whether or not clovers were weeds, but I think it makes since that dandelions aren’t considered weeds since you can pick them up and wear them as accessories and all.
        That..is..amazing! 😯 Wow, thank you so much for that link! I try to make my own icons using screenshots from an emulator, but there’s no good way to view a square image of clothing patterns, carpets, and wallpaper. I think the only way you can do it for clothes is when Sable is sewing and when you set a clothing pattern as your inventory background. (And even with that, the colors are subdued and you have to find the edges yourself.) I guess they must have drawn those sprites pixel by pixel. 😮 And that is fascinating!
        I hope so! :mrgreen: But let me know even if it didn’t work, and I’ll try to figure out where I went wrong in the trade so I won’t mess up Kammile’s. But I tried my best considering the weird things we’ve learned together about the ninth slot so far. 😛

        • Wow, before you mentioned it, it never even occurred to me that clothing patterns can appear in square form anywhere during normal gameplay 😀

          If you’re after carpets and wallpaper, this person has an even more thorough collection in their two threads. They even have all the icons and letter paper 😯

          I know, you did try your best! If it didn’t work I couldn’t even imagine which part of the process could be improved on o_o

          • haha, you read my mind! I’m trying to do the same thing for my guides section, but obviously their way is superior (a sample of mine, you can even see a a few pixels from the staircase :lol:). I’m thrilled to see there’s a texture for the candy wallpaper I have because I was planning on making a path based off of it. 😀 You’re good at finding these. ^_^ If only I knew how to make them myself. 😛 There was a tutorial in the first thread, but the links are broken for me.

  6. :O Awesome! I just saw your lovely background! It’s amazing!
    Fall colors! Nice Trees! Falling Leaves! Everything’s all themed up with Autumn!
    I love it! Compliments to Amy! :mrgreen:

    • Thanks! 😀 Though I liked the old background, I’ve been itching to change it and to make a new post! >_<

  7. That part about Curly was weird… you never even talked to him and then he just gives his picture!? Maybe he likes you…or have u been sending letters instead…?

    • Nope, no errands or letters. 😛 The only times I talk to him are when he runs up to me with the “ding” noise and an exclamation point above his head. I guess I got into the habit of always talking to neighbors when they do that because there’s always a possibility (even a small one, if your friendship with them isn’t very high) of them giving you their picture.

  8. Great post! Sorry I didn’t comment before, I was not able to! 😦
    So now I know a bit better Teru’s town 😛 (btw great town!)
    I already posted the story I announced in some post (I can not remember which one 😳 ) Oh and I loooove so much your new background!!! It’s amazing!

    • There’s no need to be sorry, you don’t have to comment on any of my posts…only if you want to. 🙂
      Yeah, I know her town a bit better too! I recognize a lot of spots from pictures in her blog, but it helps a lot to be able to explore it yourself and see where certain locations are. It’s very beautiful with lots of well-placed trees and flowers!
      Thank you! I have to leave for a haircut at the moment, but I can’t wait to read your updates (and start on a new post of my own >_<) when I get back! 😀

      • I just feel I “have” to comment on new posts 😛 I like commenting and ’cause you comment so much on my blog when I don’t comment I’m like “OMG!!! I’m so mean!!! 😛 ”
        I have to start commenting more on Emma’s blog too but the thing is I always find her on my e-mail chat and I just say what I have to say there 😛 🙂
        PS: And I know Emma in real life so if I don’t tell her stuff in the chat I just see her someday and tell her! 😉 XD
