DLC Update!!!

Hey all! So, I hate the feeling of spending months away from the game and coming back to find that a whole lot has gone down in my absence. After all, some used to call me the DLC king back in the day and my catalog events were MASSIVE. But today, I realized I may have missed some important things… but anyway, that’s why I’m posting this blog!

So, first things first. As I mentioned last time, if you live in the U.S. or Europe and you go to download the monthly DLC from the post-office, you will get a tree-stump chair, a DLC item I (and many others) already had because it was released as DLC in Japan last December (before the game came out in other regions). As to not repeat the DLC download for Japan players, they began to start the cycle of Star-Sign furniture that we’ve been waiting for! It being in the Sagittarius date field, the Sagittarius Arrow is the first item that they could get their hands on. Luckily, the item is reorderable, so I got one, and I encourage everyone to spread the love to those looking for these!

Image

Now, I’ve speculated that when the U.S., Europe and other nations finish getting DLC in the upcoming months that Japan already got before the game released in them (what a jumbled sentence, I know.. lol) then we too will join in on the “Star-Sign” DLC cycle wherever that point may be. So don’t fret if you can’t find a Japanese player willing to get you a copy of the item. (for info on star-sign dates, etc, visit my website http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com )

Now comes the kicker. You’ll remember I discussed the pile of leaves item that popped up in a letter from Nintendo last time. Well, while I was away working on the movie set, apparently 3 more DLC items from the “unknown” list have been released!

The first of all is the tteok plate. Now, I’m looking for specifics. If you know exact information, please comment with the release dates, location, etc. From what I’ve got, this item was released in a letter from Nintendo in early November, and I think only to Korean players. I’m still looking for one, so if you know anyone with an extra, please tell them I’m looking! (I’m kkcody on animalcrossingcommunity.com if that’s easier haha…) I’ve heard no word on if it’s reorderable or not yet.

The other 2 items are orderable. They are… (duh duh duh…)…

Image

the flamenco hat

Image

…and the tam-o-shanter! Look at those Scottish locks… haha

I think these two were either DLC or Nintendo Zone DLC in Europe during the month of November, but again, I’ve really no idea on specifics. I’m looking for someone kind enough to explain so that I can keep my website accurate 🙂

So, while my search for the tteok plate continues, I will keep my DLC updates ongoing to help y’all out! I am updating the website, but as you may read on my note on the homepage, I’m really only focused on the DLC page.

I would also like to give a BIG shoutout to user eunho on ACC. She ended up graciously giving me the tam-o-shanter and flamenco hat for nothing in return, and I am so grateful. What great and giving players there are out there. Thank you!

Image

Well, til next time, keep playing away and I hope you all have a great holiday season! 😀

Week 9: Birthday Extravaganza! New DLC, Tingle Hood and more!

Well, my week started off with a bang! As those that keep up with this blog may recall, I dealt with a false accusation against me by ACC user osiris7777777, so I wouldn’t interact with them or they might do the same to you (read about it in my last blog post).

Despite that, my week started off with yet another Gracie fashion check! She wanted me to go for “rock n roll” this time around, so I got to work making my perfect outfit!

Image

I also was suggested by Cobb that I should build a video screen in town as my next public works project! This is one I’ve been waiting for, so I set the location down by town plaza and paid it off right away!

Image

I had also been selling some of the afternoon-tea set DLC to make a few bells. My account is slowly rising, I’ll hit the 100 million mark eventually!

Image

I returned to Gracie wearing this… It wasn’t exactly what she was looking for but she let me pass the test! 2 down, 2 to go! 🙂

Image

Something else exciting happened early on in the week. I visited Dr. Shrunk day after day, as per usual, and I hit the point where I finally learned every joke he had to offer! He taught me the shrunk dance and gave me the Dr. Shrunk’s Jacket which I have been trying to get for some time now! Whoo!

Image

Also, since my bank account finally hit the 50 million bell mark, I was sent a special gift from the post office via the mail! It’s a postman’s hat! This is classy and will sit proudly in my rococo room!

Image

Now, as you all may have read, my birthday was approaching, and my brother played a sort of prank on me lol. If you have visited my town’s Dream Address and either found the actual picture or design of something highly inappropriate, I’m sorry if you are offended! If you have found it and you laughed, then that’s good, because my brother logged on to my 3DS, uploaded a design via QR that some would think is totally gross, and hid it on a wall in my house! I’m leaving it there because I think it’s funny, I’m just saying that if it offends anyone, I am truly sorry! (more information on visiting my town or dream address on my website http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com)

Image

The next day, I found my nice video screen completed! It looks great!

Image

I also found Phineas wandering around town. I asked him for a badge, and he gave me the Gardening Specialist badge for always keeping my plants watered! WOW!

Image

That’s my first gold medal! Can’t wait to get more! I next decided to move my catalog event sign to the left side of the field and make a more organized setup. I also changed the existing sign to a design I created for the café.

Image

Still chasing after Victoria’s picture, I always try to 1-up her requests. She asked me for a cherry and I, of course, brought back a perfect cherry. However, I haven’t got a picture yet! I’ll keep trying though 🙂

Image

The next day was my birthday! Not knowing what to expect, I turned on my 3DS in the morning to find Victoria in front of my home.

Image

She dragged me back to her place where there was a party in store!

Image

I made a funny wish that Victoria asked me to tell her. I did and she said she’s gonna spread it around! Wow! That would be hilarious 😀

Image

I exited the house to a little cutscene where I note that I am awesome…

Image

Only receiving a birthday table item from the birthday furniture set, I was visited by a few friends who granted me awesome gifts! Among them were a full white suit and a full birthday furniture set!

Image

Feeling generous after the nice gifts, I decided to run a catalog event on my birthday! (crazy, right?) I invited Simone, a great friend of mine, to come first and test out my new organization method! We had a lot of fun!

Image

Image

Simone also brought me a shopping cart! Now, after some research, I found this item isn’t really anything special. It was listed in the Prima guide as “DLC”, but in fact, it is just a spotlight item. However, people want it because of this typo, so I decided I’ll include it in my DLC collection for now.

Image

Another exciting gift I received was the last DLC/event item I needed to complete my collection, the fruit basket!! Monumental moment for me right there.

Image

After all the time, effort, blood, sweat, tears and McWaffle incident, I finally had a complete collection! No where to go from here but towards the future releases! What a feeling. 🙂

After the catalog event I held on my birthday, I saw my bank account rise a little, almost nearing the 60 million mark!

Image

Strolling through town, Cobb recommended another great public works project, a fire pit! I’m beginning to like this guy…

Image

I visited the fortune shop I opened last week to have my daily fortune reading. If you remember, I received a celebration hat randomly as a special good-luck item. There is one other you can receive called the Tingle hood (yes, Tingle from Majora’s Mask) and Katrina finally offered it to me! (well..you have to pay 10,000 bells…..)

Image

As great as the hood looks on my head…

Image

I decided to showcase it in my Nintendo museum exhibit with all of the other classic gear from other games 🙂

Image

I got a letter from Nintendo notifying me about the afternoon-tea set‘s availability at Nintendo Zone locations. I wish Nintendo would keep this hush-hush… what good are exclusive items if everyone knows about them? Oh well…

Image

I was happy to spot Phineas again! He presented me with a Letter Writer badge! Sweet!

Image

And that dingy morning, my fire pit was also complete! It looks soooo epic

Image

The next morning, it was finally September! This meant some new catches in the fish and bug department! My first new find was a pike

Image

Not much else exciting happened (as I was on vacation with limited play time). The next day was the Labor Day festivities in my Town Plaza!

Image

Image

Yup, this included the receiving of the DLC picnic basket (which I already had, but for those of you that don’t…. Labor Day was the day to play 😉 )

Shortly after, I found two new bug species, a cricket and bell cricket!

Image

Also starting September, the new downloadable DLC (via the post office), the full-moon vanity, has been released worldwide! Go get yours sometime during September!

Image

I placed it in my US/EU DLC exhibit and await the next DLC item to be released!

Image

In other news, my main website catalog has been updated in the “furniture” section, and the website has a new Autumn layout! Hope you all enjoy! Here’s the address again…

For next week…

  • Finish art museum exhibit
  • More badge collecting
  • Major website updates, including info on the new Club Tropica
  • A 7-11 set giveaway (watch my website)

Week 8: Beware the McWaffle! Complete DLC, Fortune Shop Arrives, Etc!

All right, so I have to start off my week 8 blog with a very sad story. One so sad, it made my heart break a little just living through it. But we all move on. So, on Monday of this last week, I decided to hold a catalog event. As many of you know, I’ve normally held it on GameFaqs, but I’ve been transitioning my site and everything over to Animal Crossing Community. So this would be my first big event there!

Image

So I compiled a long list of interested people, and when they each pay 1 million bells a piece to come catalog, it’s good news for me because I’m that much closer to my 100 million savings goal! Anyway, the first 2 visitors came and had a fun time. Then… the second two arrive…

One of them had been to my event before via GameFaqs and I knew and trusted him. We had a deal worked out where he would come for 100k since he was an old time customer. Then the second person arrived.. a player with the ACC username McWaffle

I’ll tell this story as I did on many ACC posts. McWaffle arrived and plead that he had very little bells and begged me to let him enter for a measley 100 bells. I normally would shut of the wifi switch right away but I decided to be kind to the new player. After all, that’s what community is all about, helping each other out. Now, I keep my DLC in stacks that are ordered so that it’s organized and easy for me to walk back through and ensure no stealing has taken place. After these two players ravaged through it though, the place was a complete and total disaster. However, it appeared that all items were there on a quick runthrough and I had a long list to go through, so I hurried the players along to the zodiac set (which was away from the event area). The 2 catalogged it and I noticed when they said they were done a zodiac statue was missing… I assumed it was accidental, and McWaffle laughed and dropped it. Seeing that everything should have been there, I ended session.

Upon reorganizing, I found a total of 15 DLC items had actually been stolen, including 6 re-orderables (like my cool yellow refurnished rolling suitcase) and 9 non-orderables, which as you know if you’ve been reading my blog, have taken a LONG time to collect 😦

I was, at first, devastated. I contacted the other person who was there, and being a trustworthy friend, knew at once that it wasn’t him, but I made this offer to both him and McWaffle… “If you bring me the items back that were stolen, I will forgive you and dupe them to you for free”. I wanted to extend the courteous hand in the situation, and even though raged that someone just stole from me, wanted to play it cool. Of course, the entire time, all of the people who were going to come catalog were angry with McWaffle as well, and it blew into a big thing on the ACC thread. McWaffle finally messaged me back and said he stole some items. However, he only claimed he took 6 because “he thought they sounded cool”. And wouldn’t you know it… they were the 6 re-orderable items…

At this point, there was no reasoning with him. He just kept swearing on God that he only took 6 from me. Rather than try to refute with an incompetent 13 year old (this coming from me… 22 years young lol 😛 ), I turned to the community. I had a total of 5 complete strangers offer to dupe me and outright give me pieces of their personal DLC collections to rebuild mine. I was shocked, such a bittersweet moment that on one hand, there’s McWaffle stealing items, and on the other, so many players coming together to help get me all my missing items back.

SO! The moral of the story is this. I will, in future catalog events, make sure things stay in piles. I will double check EVERY item to make sure it hasn’t been taken from me, and I will always send players back home that don’t pay the ticket price lol. Although I feel bad for the McWaffle (not really, but several people, after reading this, my website, and my ACC rants won’t trade with him), you shouldn’t steal to get what you want. After all, with the era of duping upon us, why steal? That’s just taking away happiness from another player. Like me… If there hadn’t been people willing to get me back all of my missing items… that’s just a lot of time wasted making trades and hard work.

Anyway, with that side not past us… Let’s move on!

One player in particular, cloudx3 on ACC, invited me to his town after he gave me some of his DLC items to help me out. I enjoyed his town! He had a triforce pattern on a tree trunk, which for those of you that don’t know, patterns can randomly appear on tree trunks after cutting down trees with a golden axe

Image

He also had a very funny face cutout standee… lol

Image

Returning home, I finally found that my turnips that I’ve been waiting for to rot had done so! This brought two new species into my encyclopedia… a fly and an ant!

Image

Image

During the period of time where players came together to help me out, I actually got an event item that I had not yet collected, the cornucopia!

Image

On another note (completely aside from the rebuilding of my DLC collection) I was trading the pumpkin pie DLC stock that I had for real art items and other DLC that I had yet to get… One such item was the holiday stocking, not to be confused with Japan’s stuffed stocking, which is a European “Naughy-Or-Nice” day item!

Image

I also managed to conduct several trades and my museum was building up a better art collection than ever before!

Image

I noticed as I walked through town that Frank decided to wear the most stylish pattern possible… What up bro!

Image

I have also fully converted my basement from a game room (as I gave away my sloppy set last week in a giveaway) to a zen-zelda-like garden! It looks great so far!

Image

Many of you ask me what my position is on duping, and I would simply respond as this. If the act of duping does not inhibit the enjoyment a player has, then I personally don’t think there’s a problem with it. I found a friend online, who stuck behind me 100% during the McWaffle incident, who wanted to become duping partners. I figured I could use practice, since I’d never really done it before, and became quite good at it. In the end, I received the remaining New Year’s Hats I was missing…

Image

And also had an extra 7-11 set that I decided to auction off. I know some players frown upon this sort of activity, but I honestly just think about how happy the winner of the auction will be when they receive their 7-11 set. Why, when I completed mine just before duping came out… I was soo happy. Filled with joy 🙂

Now, if you remember last blog, I talked about Katrina opening a fortune shop and the methods to doing so… Well, she showed up in my town near the end of the week, and it was time to start visiting her! As you recall, I wouldn’t visit her with my main character, that would be at the end of my 20 total visits… So I created new character after new character…

Image

The good thing about this was, not only could I visit Katrina with new characters, I could grab a pumpkin pie for my stock as well! Katrina did give some weird stories throughout my visits that day…

Image

Image

And at the end of the day… I had more pie than I had room for!

Image

Upon returning home, Victoria surprised me yet again (this girl.. She won’t leave me alone I tell you! Why doesn’t Erik come over and play??? It’s only Victoria… lol!)

Image

All jokes aside, I headed up to Nook’s Homes because I am still trying to reach 150,000 points. I’m getting close, but I’ll need to decorate with a little more ooomph if I’m to reach the big score!

Image

Katrina spewed out some more fortunes as my day of visiting continued…

Image

Image

I then felt sure I had 20 total visits and visited her as “Cody”, which is me! She completed my fortune and at first, I was afraid I miscounted, because she said nothing about opening a shop 😦

However, as I went to walk out from her tent… She caught my attention!

Image

That’s when she spilled the beans and told me she was interested in opening up shop on main street! YES! After a long day’s work, I got my goal!

Image

Through the whole pumpkin pie sales, I also saw my bank account making great progress!

HNI_0022

I will one day reach the 100 million! It’ll just take a while lol. But I do want to get into the turnip trade one of these Sundays… lol, anyway!

Phineas arrived in town and gave me the Great Host badge! Apparently through all of the pumpkin pie buyers and everything, 100 more people have visited my town since the train station remodel! Thanks all!!

HNI_0024

The next morning, I noticed that the fortune shop had opened! The inside looks identical to Katrina’s tent, but the outside lies right by the Dream Suite on Main Street!

HNI_0025

Also, on Saturday, Gracie was visiting town to do a fashion check. As I haven’t had time to gather clothing and pass one yet, I decided to actually take part in it that day for the “historical” theme she set out…

Here’s what I came up with… (you can see a full list of items that will pass a themed fashion check on my website, http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com)

HNI_0028

Sexy, right?…. Well, I may not think so, but she loved it! One fashion check down! 🙂

HNI_0029

I also visited the fortune shop when it opened and Katrina warned me that bad luck was coming my way. However, she had a special item that could help me and would sell it to me for 10,000 bells! Of course, I accepted (after all, you know how anal I am about finishing my catalog)… So I got a celebration hat!

HNI_0035

On my way back through town, Cousteau recommended a public works project, a video screen! This is one I think will look cool down by my event plaza!

HNI_0036

I attended the fireworks show on Sunday night, getting myself a bulb bopper.. I’m trying to collect these things as this is the only place you can get them!

HNI_0037

This morning (monday) I did the “Bestbuy” router trick (see my website for more info) and was able to download the new Nintendo Zone DLC item, the afternoon-tea set! I’ve been waiting for this one for a long time! Whoo!

HNI_0038

For Next Week:

  • I will try to finish my art collection!
  • I will try to track down a fruit basket DLC item!
  • I will try to update my website with more info on upcoming DLC
  • I will try to try to do all of these things
  • The 28th of August is MY BIRTHDAY! I will update the post with information on special items I receive at this event! 🙂
