Visit to Jemma’s town

Isn’t this house pretty? I found it randomly when resetting one of my extra gamecards. It’s a Static’s house, and each villager always has the same, specific house shape… I have a Static in my town too, and also have this house style in my town, but he chose one of my town’s other house styles instead. >_< So no pretty pink and blue house with double wooden fans for me.

But that’s just a random picture that was on my camera when I uploaded the pictures from…


…a WiFi meeting with Jemma this morning in her town usa!


I wasn’t expecting any gift exchanges since this was a pretty spur of the moment, short-term notice WiFi, but she gave a surprise gift of several items and a purple rose! Thank you so much, purple roses are beautiful and always a help towards my pursuit of growing my first blue rose.


This balloon present flag is adorable!


I thought Jemma’s outfit was really cute, with her blue pigtails, green eyes, colorful polka dot shirt, rose in her mouth, and dandelion in her hair.


While she was preparing a game for us to play, I tried to get a full picture of the gate. But it’s not very good, you can see a reflection of my camera in the black.


It was like a memory game; she would list off a sequence of fruits, which grew longer and longer each time, and I would show I remembered the sequence by walking a circle around each fruit in order. I got all of the lists right, yay ^_^


I suggested a fishing contest to see who could catch 20 fish first, but with 3 minutes left on the timer and ~10 fish left to go, we were nowhere close. xP So it turned into a contest to see who could catch the most fish before the time ran out. I think those are the classic AC fishing contest rules anyway, though there can be variations, like who can make the most money off their catches, etc.


I was hoping to see a finned fish, but these are good catches too.


Ah, she beat me by 2, good job! ๐Ÿ˜€


We did a bug catching contest next and I was able to win that one.


Catching bugs was easier and more exciting than fishing, but they aren’t usually worth as much. This agrias butterfly was the rarest I saw.


*waves to Jemma across the river*


After taking a look at usa’s map and seeing all the awesome neighbors she has, I asked to go visit them.

First we visited Pecan, she’s one of my favorite snooties! ๐Ÿ™‚ I want Queenie or Eloise for Dafdilly, but back when I was thinking of maintaining a second town (see my very first post >_<), I wanted Pecan to be the resident snooty there.


Well, I would base my ideal type on more relevant things to a relationship than Tae Kwon Do or making cheesecakes, but whatever works for you, no standards are too high. ๐Ÿ˜›


Her house is nice and looks close to the original decorations, maybe she’s a bit newer?


You must love it in usa then, there are many bright fruit trees everywhere, very pretty. ๐Ÿ™‚


What? I see stuff in there!


She has Puddles too! And what’s more, both of us had her as our very first neighbor! (Well, you start off with three neighbors, but I consider her the first since she was at the top of the list on my map.) At first I was wondering why she was calling me Puppy โ™ฅer, if it was a nickname or something, but then I realized it must be her catchphrase. ๐Ÿ˜›


Aww, seeing Butch makes me nostalgic a bit. He was one of my first neighbors in my first Animal Crossing town on the GameCube, and I talked to him a lot.


That’s nice ๐Ÿ™‚


Eep.


But he warmed up to me quickly… we just met Apollo!


Ooh, I’ve been to A casa ๐Ÿ™‚


Caroline is so bright, vibrant, and colorful — even her shirt is, I love it. She’s packed up but hopefully Jemma convinced her enough to stay, good luck!


After meeting usa’s last resident Drift, who seems cool, I thought I’d better go because…


My low battery warning light had been on for a little while, and I wasn’t sure where my charger was. >_< So I thought it would be best to leave in a normal way rather than the power randomly shutting off and ending communication… but I would have loved to stay longer.


Thanks for having me over, Jemma! I had a great time. ๐Ÿ˜€

Party in Lilypond

Haha, I feel like with every new WiFi party post, the fact that I haven’t posted on my own towns in a long time becomes more conspicuous. (Well, at least I’ve been pretty good about posting on my WiFi visits, right? >_>) I’m really sorry guys, that I don’t have as much time to dedicate to Animal Crossing and this blog as I would like to. But like I said in my last notice, when I have spare time I’ve been working on my patterns page. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, practically since I started this blog, so I wanted to dedicate some time to working on that alone. Once I’m done putting up some more spring-suited patterns (I’ll put up the winter and fall ones later), though, I do want to start working on getting my town caught up. Because yes, it’s still in winter, as you can see:

This was at least a few weeks ago, I think. Claire from An Ville came over for a new haircut and we also chatted and had a fishing contest. I didn’t take many pictures but it was a good time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I went to a party hosted by Anna (some of you may remember her better from my blog as Skye or from ACC as MonkeyDoodle) in Lilypond! ๐Ÿ˜€

(I’m sorry in advance for the poor quality photos, especially compared to the pictures from the party in An Ville, but for some reason my camera has a lot of trouble capturing AC:WW in the evening. :()


The first thing she did when I stepped through the gate was give me a present, sweet!

It’s a halo! Thanks a lot :mrgreen: And hey there, anime-eye Anna. ๐Ÿ˜› The glitch occurred when she was changing accessories and I happened to get a picture.


Aww yay, I think this is the first time I’ve seen someone use a pattern from my patterns page! This is meant to go with the fenced-in pansy border, and that’s why the bricks are rather plain, but it still looks fine by itself and the pansy patterns are probably too complicated to copy.


The first party activity was a game of tic-tac-toe!


Mine are the oranges, and hers are either gyroids or treasure boxes. As you can see, the first game was a draw.


But Anna won the next one ๐Ÿ™‚ (she’d picked up a few of the gyroids before I took a picture)


For the third game, I went first and implemented the “corner trick” I remember from when I was little. If you go first in a corner, and your opponent doesn’t go in the middle, you’re pretty much guaranteed to win if you choose a different corner next. Well, I bet everyone knows this, but maybe we were going easy on each other so that every game wouldn’t be a draw. ๐Ÿ˜†


So I won that one and got a prize of 10,000 bells! Which is a lot, wow, thanks Anna ๐Ÿ˜€

Anna told me that one of my favorite neighbors lived in her town, so we went to visit…

Hugh! He actually isn’t in my very top tier of neighbors, which includes Melba and Bob, but I like him a lot because he’s unique-looking and I think his facial expressions are always amazing (just a few examples above).


I like his house shape and this house style a lot, too, and wanted to see what other houses she had in Lilypond. I don’t know, it’s probably weird, but I really like the houses in AC:WW, there’s such a wide variety and combinations of different styles and shapes.


I like this second house style, too, yellow stone. ๐Ÿ™‚


She pointed out the diagonal formation of her neighbors’ houses, which is awesome!

It’s easier to see on the map:



This is one of the cooler house shapes because of the double roof thingy (lol); Truffles here has it, as well as Rolf, Bluebear, Static, Curt, Mathilda, and probably others I’m forgetting. ๐Ÿ˜›


I thought there was a nice stone connection with the first two house styles, so I was surprised to see this one, a wooden house style that I have in Dafdilly. It probably doesn’t appeal to everyone, but it’s one of my favorites and I resetted for it, I love the colors and checkered doors.

Okay, enough talking about houses >_<

I heard a mole cricket nearby, they’re always fun to try and catch. I found it in the first hole I dug. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


All of a sudden she gave me another present! Thanks so much, I hardly have any gold roses (I think just one), so this is really generous and I appreciate it a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€


Next we visited a few neighbors, like Goose:


Haha, really…? His house was warm and cozy with all the places to sit and K.K. Country playing.

When we went back outside, Anna and I were morphed! She said it was her first morph so I’ll put several pictures:









Then I met Walker, wow, his eyes are such a bright blue.


Jeopardy was playing on his retro TV and Anna started guessing answers to the show ๐Ÿ˜›


Then we played another party activity, which was a game to dig up the correct object, a wobbelina. I had three tries to dig up the wobbelina but got it on the first try ๐Ÿ˜›


For a prize I got a rainbow feather, it’s beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Thank you so much!


She realized she hadn’t shown me her house yet, so led me there. ๐Ÿ™‚


Nice regal room, I really like the combination of the regal carpet and blue-trim wall. ๐Ÿ™‚


o_O


Worn out, we decided to take a nap.


At first we slept peacefully…


But that didn’t last long xP


Haha, I love our glares here.


Yay, someone else came! :mrgreen: I’m glad; it looks like Anna worked hard on preparing the games and prizes, so it would have been a shame if I was the only guest.


I don’t often WiFi with new people, so it was really nice to meet someone new. ๐Ÿ˜€


Anna suggested a race next, so here we are on the starting line.


I fell in about three pitfalls ๐Ÿ™„


I took so long that Anna called out “Twisk?” like I was lost. xP Good job, Clone, you were obviously better at evading them. ๐Ÿ˜›


We chatted some and lined up for a group picture, which I think Clone 1 was confused about before we explained. ๐Ÿ˜›


Then it was time for Anna to leave and party over. Thanks for such a great party and all your wonderful prizes and gifts, I had a really fun time! ๐Ÿ˜€

Kammile’s party in An Ville

Haha, this is yet another AC:WW WiFi party post! Today I went to a party hosted by Kammile in her new town An Ville. ๐Ÿ˜€


She has a gate pond like me! I really like this feature, but it means you always have to wrap your paths around. ๐Ÿ˜›


It’s my first time in An Ville, so I take a look at the map. I like the island. ๐Ÿ™‚

We took a stroll along the path while waiting for others to arrive:





I like how the house styles match the path’s colors!


Our walk didn’t last long because Jemma soon arrived, yay ^_^


We met up at the gate and decided to wait a bit longer in case someone else was coming.

And while we waited…

There’s a cool glitch that sometimes occurs during WiFi when a character’s normal eyes briefly change to the sparkly anime eyes. It seems to happen after swapping clothes/accessories. My character Twisk’s eyes are black, so the glitched anime eyes she gets are just the regular ones. But Kammile’s are brown, so I wondered if Jemma’s would be green…
And they are! I was really curious what they would look like. Now I want to see blue ones. ๐Ÿ˜›


Another one, but it’s basically the same picture, same sparkles and all. o_O


No sparkles in the way this time! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m glad I was able to get a pretty good picture because it happens in a flash and then they’re gone.


We finished waiting for late arrivals after that and started the first game, a race to find the buried timer before the time runs out. I love that it was a mix between a time bomb game and a treasure hunt, with lots of buried treasure around to help disguise where the timer was buried.


I’ve never had a triforce before but I’ve always wanted one, so I was thrilled to find this! ๐Ÿ˜€ I also dug up a yellow feather (awesome, haven’t really donated anything to Boondox yet :P) and another Zelda item, the Master Sword.


I dug up the timer and saved the day. xP In addition to keeping the treasure we found, Jemma and I also got bell prizes for finding the timer within the time limit. Thanks Kammile!

The next game is a classic — tag — Animal Crossing style with nets. ๐Ÿ˜› Kammile was “it” and Jemma was last to evade being whacked by her net, so she won.


The final game was a unique race in which Jemma and I had to stay within our narrow one-pattern wide lanes, which were ridden with holes to kick dirt into and pitfalls to struggle through. There was an even amount of pitfalls and holes in each lane, but they were spaced differently, which increased the suspense. For example, if you fall into a pitfall and watch your opponent continue to run, you feel like you’re falling behind, but then they fall in a pitfall later on and you’re able to catch up. It was really well done. ๐Ÿ™‚


I got to the finish line first, but Jemma was close behind, kicking dirt into the last hole.


Then she let us hunt for the remaining treasure, so nice!


I might have won more of the games, but since Jemma found a throne I think she won the whole party! ๐Ÿ˜†

For the rest of our stay, Kammile let us explore her town and visit her neighbors, and I took a lot of pictures. ๐Ÿ˜ณ


An Ville’s cherry blossom festival is still going on, I see. ๐Ÿ˜€ I love when you’re able to get several trees in a row like this, it doesn’t see to work for me often.


A random, useless observation: when you shake a cherry blossom tree with furniture/money in the branches, green leaves fall instead of pink ones.

I made similar-looking paths last Fall (same palette, bricks bordered by fenced in flowers), but I think these colors look a lot better during the springtime, bringing out the pink cherry blossoms and red, white, and purple flowers:








The way An Ville is landscaped reminds me of her old town StarCity. ๐Ÿ™‚


I thought this had a park feel with the bench, flowers, and orderly trees.


Pretty white pansy garden ๐Ÿ™‚


This is my favorite type of pond you can get in AC:WW because of how big it looks (but technically I think it’s the same amount of spaces as other ponds). Another cute spot with a well-placed bench ^_^


I went to meet Poncho, one of my favorite jocks. He’s such an adorable little bear.


And Dotty, yay, I love her! ๐Ÿ˜€ I think she was one of my first neighbors in my first ever AC:WW town. Well, I don’t remember it, but (before I deleted the town) I looked at my oldest saved letters and villager pics. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to start an Animal Crossing blog, so I don’t forget such things. -_-


Yeah, well, your house is kind of weird, Dotty… I guess you have a desert alien planet thing going on.


The exterior is nice, though, with all the flowers around her house. Has the flower fest started yet? /out of the loop


A full pic of Claire’s purple, not-quite mansion — I think there’s just one more upgrade to go!


Another one, with me cropped out this time. If you look closely, doesn’t it sort of look like smoke is coming out of the chimney?


Already has a nice hybrid garden going. ๐Ÿ™‚


This is my favorite house shape; Melba, Jeremiah, Patty, and Anchovy all have it. And I guess Ribbot, too, because I think this house is his. ๐Ÿ˜› Maybe one day I’ll make a guide with all the town house styles and villager house shapes.

Kammile and Jemma were visiting Ribbot and when they left the house, they became fused!

Sometimes Jemma was in front…


and sometimes Kammile was in front…


But what’s coolest to see was when one eye was Kammile’s and one eye was Jemma’s!


Wink? ๐Ÿ˜†


Jemma and I both bought something from Nookway so hopefully it will upgrade to Nookington’s soon. ๐Ÿ™‚


A full, distant picture of the waterfall… you can tell I like taking these sorts of pictures, can’t you? >_> I first learned the technique of taking a picture as the bottom screen shoots into the top one (after pressing Y or X) from Teru’s blog.


And a full picture of the gate… why not? ๐Ÿ˜›


Finally we all met up again after doing our individual explorations and chatted some more ๐Ÿ™‚

…and took emotion pics. xP Poor Claire is emotionless, though, because Dr. Shrunk hasn’t come to An Ville yet.



Jemma had to leave, and after chatting for a while longer with Kammile I had to go too, so the party ended. It was a lot of fun! Thanks for the treasure, prizes, and good time Kammile! :mrgreen:
