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!

Last WiFis in Wild World

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.

A Wild World post: just some odds and ends since New Leaf came out

In my last post on Dafdilly, we left off on the first day of Spring (February 25th), and I’ll admit that my town has hardly progressed at all since that post. >_< Back then I had plans to try to catch up through the rest of Spring (especially the cherry blossom festival, which I was really looking forward to, and had plans of doing a special landscaping project for the pink trees), but then two things happened: 1) my DS Lite's hinge broke, making it more of a pain to play AC:WW, and 2) New Leaf came out, which being a brand new AC game, excited me and kept me busy with all the new things to do, collect, and customize.

Meanwhile, while I was busy playing New Leaf, I would sometimes check up on my Wild World town, but I’d always set it to that same date (February 25th). This way I could walk around town in its practically flawless state (no wilted flowers), enjoy the sights of town and the gardens I’d worked hard on (without having to actually water any of them), and talk to my neighbors (without them being mad at me for my long absence, or God forbid, find out one of my favorites had moved out!).

I hope you can understand why it was so tempting to just keep my town on the same date — I could still enjoy “visiting it” every once in a while (it reminds me of the concept of visiting dream towns in AC:NL), but I wouldn’t have to do the daunting task of catching up my town to the present, or worry about maintaining it. Because that’s the thing about AC:WW: if I started playing it normally again, I’d have to do work every single day just to keep my town how it currently is. There’s no Beautiful Town Ordinance, so if I don’t water the inevitable wilted flowers, they’ll be gone the next day.

Anyway, now that you know why it’s still spring and green in my town, I’ll share some pictures from my “visits” to Dafdilly since New Leaf came out!

Visiting Bentley

Yay, a few days ago I got to visit another town for the first time in a while! 😀


I visited Bentley, the home of Dusty (also known as Petite D). I’ve been reading her blog for a pretty long time so it was a real treat to actually visit Bentley myself!

You won’t see Petite D in these pictures; when she opens her gates, she doesn’t like to follow guests around town (I wasn’t the only one who came). Plus, she opens her gates for several hours so she can’t be responsive the whole time. It’s not a bad format for WiFi, though! I felt at my leisure to explore the town and play in it like I would my own town — walk around seeing the gardens, visit the houses and the museum, talk to neighbors (and to certain ones I especially like over and over), shop, fish, etc. — without feeling like I’m boring my host. 🙂


First I picked up the Triforce by the museum that I’d won in a raffle giveaway, and then I headed over to Petite D’s house. The black cosmos and pink cosmos look nice together. 🙂


The main room has such a cozy, homely feel with the fireplace and villagers’ photos.


Ooh, a rare Nintendo item! When you touch it, it makes a noise and the Pikmin move around.


Aww, when I played the harp, I recognized the town tune as the beginning of the Shire theme. ♥ I have a special place in my heart for this music because I associate it most with Frodo & Sam, and I particularly love the two of them.


Love all the realistic touches in this kitchen, like the garbage pail, fan, and vacuum cleaner.


A beautiful garden room!

And upstairs…



Wow, an awesome cafe! 😀 The atmosphere in here is so nice with the warm sunset light coming in.

Next I went around meeting Bentley’s residents and chatting with them, which was fun since I’m familiar with them from her blog. ^_^ She’s had the same 8 neighbors in her town for years, and 6 out of 8 of them are locked! Also, she works hard to keep their rooms looking nicely decorated, and has completely changed up the decor of a few of the villagers.


First I visited Bob, who lives fairly close to Petite D’s house. I hope he turns up in my town one day, he’s one of my favorites. 😀 “I’m a cat. Chillin’ is in my blood, man.”


Then I met Teddy, Bob’s nearby neighbor. Hehe, it’s always interesting to hear villagers’ thoughts on my name.


A somewhat sinister greeting by Ruby o_o


Oops, I startled Chevre. But she warmed up to me quickly 🙂


Another neighbor I wouldn’t mind moving into Dafdilly, Eloise! I love her eyes and sunny coloring. 😀

Apparently she’s buddies with the cranky lion Elvis:

😮


What a simple, civil greeting. And she gave me an opulent rug that she got from the checkout counter of Nintendique, how nice 🙂


And last I met Dotty, who lives right next door to Whitney. It’s good to see her again, she was in my first AC:WW town! I still have her pic from back then.

The beautiful gardens around each of their houses:




I love how each of the different gardens coordinates well with the style of house, and even maybe with the villager’s personality, like the sun cosmos by Eloise’s house and the gold roses to give a royal feel by Elvis’s house. 🙂


And there are more beautiful flowers here! 😀 But actually, this is where she put freebie hybrids for guests to take, since she’d like to cut back on the number of flowers in Bentley with New Leaf coming out soon. I grabbed quite a few! 😳 But not all of them in case other guests wanted to take some.


When visiting another town, even little things like the different bends in the river seem interesting and refreshing. I loove this little nook in the river here ^_^


And she also had a ton of freebie items by the town hall — great stuff like Saharah carpets/wallpaper, Gracie shirts, and spotlight items! Again, I wanted to leave stuff for others to take as well, so I didn’t take too much, but I took a few things home and added others to my catalog by picking them up and dropping them.


There were also lots of cracks around town, which I had fun searching for and found a few things 😀


I was so happy to get this sweater pattern, it matches so well with the blue knit hat! I can’t wait to wear it this Fall/Winter. 🙂


I visited the museum and its exhibits, which are all complete! That was pretty cool to see, I don’t think I’ve ever been in a complete museum before.

After that, I felt like I’d explored the town to my heart’s content, and I thought I’d better go eat something for dinner. 😛

Setting off some sparklers ^_^ Thanks a lot to her for the Triforce, hybrids, and other goodies, and for letting me explore Bentley!

Visiting Sherwood

A few days ago I got to WiFi with Liam again! A year and a half of no WiFis together at all, and now two all of a sudden 😀


Yes, I’m glad I finally got past New Years too. xP I’ll post about the goings-on in my town during January and February another time.


Liam’s new haircut to replace the pink style he got last time 😛


Having a snack before heading over to his town.


Since it’s a pretty new town, I was shocked to see all these awesome patterns as soon as I stepped into Sherwood. It looks amazing, what an entrance! 😯


In the first step, all I could see were the water and bridge patterns, so for a moment I thought the town might be water world themed (like this), but it’s actually a pond by the gate. 🙂 It’s so convincing that you really want to just cast your line out and catch those fish!


And a little further down I was amazed to see even more patterns! I love this elegant but simple white brick path. It especially appeals to me because it reminds me of the feel I wanted my AC:CF town Seahaven to have (but never got around to implementing).


He has these nice side paths leading to other parts of town, like gardens and villager houses. I’m glad my patterns page was useful to at least one person; the path wasn’t designed by me (it’s Wendell’s path from City Folk), but I put up a version of it that will work with Wild World palettes.


Wow, all these lovely flowers 😮


It’s hard to decorate a room in a new town and with a limited catalog (I find it frustrating to even attempt!), but I think this room already has a great, warm, homelike feel to it. 🙂 I liked the welcoming jacob’s ladders at the door.


My Margie must have been in my 9th slot in our last WiFi, she lives on in Sherwood now! :mrgreen: I enjoyed talking to her again, it’s nice to know she remembers me.


This was a bit confusing, though; she moved out of Dafdilly over a year ago, and before moving to Sherwood she was actually living in my dad’s old town Red Bank. ❓


He gave me a gold rose! Thank you so much! This brings my number up to 3. 😀 Some of his flowers died when he couldn’t play for a little while, I bet this spot used to be even more beautiful.


Such a full sky! They’re based off real-life constellations, like the Big Dipper is in the upper left corner.


A rainbow rose garden, so pretty! ❤ This idea has occurred to me as well because roses have the most colors and hybrids (in AC:WW, at least).

We also blew some of the dandelions around town, and Liam got a really nice shot of Twisk and edited it later. I love it! 😀 I tried to do the same for his character, but I’m not very good at this sort of thing. >_<



Here’s the un-edited, full-sized picture if you want to do something better with it, Liam:


Thanks for letting me explore Sherwood! 😀 If you want to see more, check out his new post!
