I know that this isn’t technically the first time I’ve seen green grass in Suncombe, but it was especially exciting to see again because I only really started playing in this town last Autumn! This early-Spring grass is especially warm and vibrant, too, I love it! 💚 In April it will turn a deeper and more turquoise shade of green, so I’ll enjoy this current grass while I can!
Winter reached its peak in Suncombe with the festive, week-long Bright Nights event in February, and now we’re getting closer and closer to Spring. 🌸 There are a few things to cover from the end of January, too, since my last post on Suncombe only went until January 15th.
Suncombe is my new(ish) Wild World town, which might sound strange to say here in 2019, but I’ve been really craving playing in and developing this town! Sometimes you just have to follow your heart and do what makes you happy. 🙂 Part of the reason why I’ve been craving playing in this town in particular is because it’s one of my favorite Wild World towns I’ve come across, and I’ve done *lots* of town-resetting over the years.
This Dafdilly re-landscaping project has its roots back in the holiday season of 2015. Around that time I was feeling pretty burnt out from AC:NL, because I had been working on a new mosaic path for Citàlune that was proving difficult for me. And meanwhile, I have the sort of job that gets more stressful during the holiday season, so putting those factors together, you can see why I wanted to take a break from AC:NL. I found myself gravitating towards playing AC:WW instead, because it was more mindless and stress-relieving than pixeling a mosaic path in AC:NL, and easier to pick up and play in short bursts in my shorter amount of spare time.
But then, because I am the way I am, these little AC:WW sessions evolved into something much more ambitious over time, and eventually became a project to figure out what Dafdilly’s dream neighbors would be, obtain & place those dream neighbors in town through plot resetting (it works in AC:WW too!), and re-landscape Dafdilly for its first cherry blossom festival. 🙂 (Somehow, in past years I kept missing it!)
Since New Leaf came out in summer 2013, I have been primarily focused on that game when it comes to playing Animal Crossing. Despite this, I never completely put down my Wild World game for good. It’s always been too tempting to pick it back up again every now and then, even if just to walk around town a bit and talk to neighbors, let a few days pass by, never doing anything too major. This was made possible and made all the more tempting because I left my town in a very pleasantly landscaped state, and I always recorded what date I left off on so I could load my game on that date and not have to deal with any unfortunate consequences (villagers leaving, flowers dying).
Recently though, I did do some pretty big things in my Wild World town. Before I go into all that in my next post, I wanted to dedicate this post to the odd period, mostly 2014-2015, when I would pick up my game and play a little bit, not accomplishing much, mostly just taking pretty pictures and enjoying a visit to Dafdilly again. Some of these have already been posted to Tumblr, but I consider WordPress to be my more ‘archival’ type blog, so these pictures deserve a home here too.
I wanted to do a little tribute to the wonderful memories I’ve made WiFing with friends in AC:WW, now that AC:WW WiFi is no more. I first started WiFing in AC:WW when I started this blog and met fellow bloggers. Animal Crossing has been a special game for me, being a great way to create my own little paradise world that I can escape in and enjoy, being a bit of a creative outlet (as cheesy as that sounds), and not least of all, a way I can (and have) met lots of awesome people who I’m glad have become a part of my life, even if just in a small way like WiFing together, blogging together, seeing their posts in my Reader/Dashboard. This is a thank-you and an honor to all those people and the memories we’ve made together! 🙂 I’m sorry that not every single WiFi is included, though; I thought it would be best to be a tad selective(?). I hope you enjoy the gallery!
I wanted to make sure I got to WiFi a few more times in AC:WW before its WiFi was cut off today on May 20th! Instead of doing like five different posts, I thought it might be best to try to fit them into one. So expect lotsa pics! Also, I’m sorry for the less-than-stellar quality of some of these pictures; I’m much better at taking AC:WW screenshots when I’m not WiFing.
