How the 2.0 Update Affected My Islands

« Previous in AC:NH | Next in AC:NH »

The 2.0 update ended up affecting my islands quite a bit, so since I have -er- several, I thought I’d dedicate a post to explaining the path forward for each of them. And also quite a few photos of some of the new decorating work I’ve gotten up to with the update!

Winding Cobblestone Path (from Bywater / Shire-themed island)

« Previous in AC:NH | Next in AC:NH »

It took months of work, but I finally finished my cobblestone path for my Shire-themed island Bywater! I consider it quite the accomplishment and I’m pretty proud of myself! It’s 46 pieces, took a lot of careful steps, and on top of that, I’ve never considered ‘random’ path arrangements like cobblestone to be my specialty. The inspiration behind the path was the Hobbiton movie set, which has lots of similar cobblestone on a mixture of dirt and grass winding throughout the hilly streets and hobbit holes. If you want to see all my designs, check out this page as always, but read on if you want some extra info on how to use this path.

Initial Direct Reactions, Charity Streams Wrap-Up, & Citalune and Bywater Progress

« Previous in AC:NH | Next in AC:NH »

I’m going to experiment with a new style of posting here: weekly recaps of what I got up to this week as far as progress in my islands or paths, favorite moments from stream, and other things that feel relevant! This past week, September 19-25, was especially exciting with the Direct news, so I’m not going to expect every week to top this! Read on for my reactions to the news, as well as some nice progress on Citalune and Bywater and stream moments.

Blog Update + Looking Back at New Horizons

« Previous in AC:NH | Next in AC:NH »

Hello again, long time no post~! Understatement of the century 😅 At one point it was my goal to use this blog for New Horizons gameplay, in the same way as I always did for past Animal Crossing towns and games. But I think I have to face reality that I’ve fallen way behind in sharing about those daily happenings to hope to ever catch up, and honestly, to ever use this blog in quite the same way that I used to. But I’d like to keep using this blog, so I’m hoping for future posts, to skip to a more manageable, recent state of my islands to pick up from!

Read → Cherry Blossoms & Bunny Day

This post covers quite a busy time period: our first big event in AC:NH (Bunny Day!), a gorgeous time of year in the form of cherry blossom season, and also glimpses into the opposite hemisphere’s scenery with some WiFi visits. I also make big milestones in my island by inviting my faav, Melba, and unlocking terraforming.

Read → End of March: Museum opening, new neighbors, and a magical morning

As I expected it to be, it’s been hard to keep up with blogging while also streaming as much as I have been. Pardon the lateness, but I still want to record as many of these early memories as I can. This post is going to cover the rest of March 2020, that lovely bustling period of new openings and construction, new neighbors, and just the freshness of everything still being so new and magical.

My first visits to other islands!

Read → First WiFi sessions in New Horizons

I have a pretty long tradition about blogging my WiFi sessions on here, dating back to Wild World. :’) My WiFi experience in New Horizons has been so bustling that I doubt I’ll blog about every single visit extensively, but I did want to highlight some of these very first visits of mine to other islands! 🌴✈️ (Also as a little note, I would like to play major catch-up on this blog, but there’s no mistaking that I’m behind as I’m writing, so using past tense feels most natural, sorry if it’s off-putting in reading this as a journal 😛 )
