DLC Update: Tteok plate acquired!

Hey all!

So, as you remember in my last blog post, I was trying to acquire some recently released DLC, the tteok plate. Well, thanks to a kind user brands1 on animalcrossingcommunity.com, I finally updated my DLC collection to “complete” status once again!

HNI_0025

HNI_0027

I believe (though haven’t confirmed yet) that this item was only available to Korea players in the beginning of November and came via a letter from Nintendo. So if you have any Korean friends with the game, hit them up and ask for this rare morsel! Now the list of “unknown” releases for DLC is smaller, with the star-sign furniture figured out, everything’s coming together! I’ll keep you posted on anything else I find out! ‘Til next time!

As always, you can see the complete DLC list on my website, animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com !

Weeks 13 & 14: More DLC!! Autumn is here, Jack appears, Candy for all!

Hey all!

Well, as promised… This week’s (or two weeks’ rather) blog posts are very short… I’m sorry, but I’ve been incredibly busy! I just got back from a long weekend in Chicago and am now on a crazy workout regimen for my next upcoming film project I’m working on, but more on that later.

If you take a look on my website (http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com), you will be able to see over this next week a new section titled “Town Tour”. In this section, I will have an interactive map with a tour of my whole town for you to enjoy! Can’t wait!

Image

In other news, I FINALLY came across that alpine kitchen cart I’ve been searching for… It makes a great final addition to my diner! 🙂

Image

Customized of course lol. As for my HHA score, I have been getting super close, dancing around the 140,000 line. So little to do until I push myself to 150,000… ugh…

Image

I found out a funny fact. If you are on a cliff above town residents and they are on the beach, they look up at you…  Wow, this moment… haha

Image

I’ve been enjoying the many new clothing items Gracie has had to offer in my completed storefront. Well… I don’t know about the styles… but it helps me complete my catalog! Lol

Image

I finally got another black rose to grow in my town, which means I’d be harvesting it to make a gold rose. If you want a complete hybrid guide, see my website, but essentially, two red roses next to each other have a small chance of making a black rose, and if you let it wilt and then water it with your golden watering can (bringing it back to life) it turns into a gold rose!

Image

I was super excited when October rolled around because, finally, the new monthly DLC was available, the rice-plant bed! Simply talk to the post-office attendant while connected to the internet…

Image

And it shall be yours!

Image

Who wouldn’t want to lay on a rice-plant?? lol. I was roaming around town and happened to see a familiar face. It’s Jack from previous games’ Halloween festival! I was confused though… I thought he only showed up on Halloween Day?

Image

He explained to me that I should begin collecting candy and unique masks in preparation for the festival and granted me my first costume item, a skeleton hood. Well, it won’t be easy!

Image

I found some more news on unique downloadable DLC. This only works in the US. If you travel to any Nintendo Zone location (or change your router name to “Bestbuy”, instructions on my site) and talk to the post-office attendant, you will not get another rice-plant bed… no…. in fact, in the month of October, you get the previously unknown dated fedora chair! I’m glad I stumbled upon a thread this morning, or I’d have had no idea!

Image

Apparently Nintendo kept this one a little on the quiet side, mentioning it in a Nintendo Direct just a day ago! Well, awesome! That’s another DLC item I can check off the list.

Image

If you live in the UK or elsewhere, you apparently download a high-bun wig or something like that. This item is a normal in-game item, so I urge all US players to share their fedora chairs and spread the love as the UK players did with the shaved-ice lamp a while back. Cheers all! That’s all for now, more to come!

PS: I’m so honored and thrilled with the amount of support I’ve gotten on my new music album. My fans are the best anyone could ask for, and because of you, I will keep pursuing my dream. While my stint on the TV show Grimm is over for now… I can’t wait for the next chapter in my acting career… Thanks for the emails, messages and support. Hopefully I can keep providing expert ACNL advice with everything else going on haha. Keep playing away, readers!   #FF7

Week 10: Major Website Updates, Art Exhibit ALMOST Complete, and More!

This is going to be the lamest blog post (just a head’s up) lol! I had a heck of a start to my week with online college finals.. But the good news is I will graduate in one more term! Also, I’ve started the recording of my fourth music album, so ACNL time has been pushed to the side… But there are still a couple of things that I will note here for week 10, hopefully next week will be more exciting!

I don’t know why I’m even posting this, but Gracie came to my town and I skipped out on her (again..) She always comes on the worst days… 😦 aw well, I have passed 2 fashion checks and only need 2 more, so all in good time!

Image

On that note, I am currently working on updating my website (http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com) with a Gracie Fashion Check guide. Some updates have occured, which I will list below…

  • New Autumn layout
  • Catalogs updated
  • Museum page updated, including a full bug catching list, September fish, maps, etc (just go take a look!)
  • Music being updated now!
  • Club Tropica… Still under construction (sorry!)
  • New pictures

As I ran along the river (sometime during the week) I saw a tiny shadow and for some reason thought “what the heck” and went fishing. I’m glad I did, because I caught a new species to me, a popeyed goldfish!

Image

I went and donated the fish to the museum and decided to check out the 2nd floor shop. I’m glad I did, because there I found a paintball floor, a commemorative item for my art exhibit being more than 50% complete! Woot woot!

HNI_0022

Katrina told me more crazy stories as the week went on… I worry about her sometimes…

HNI_0044

I paid Victoria the usual visits as well, and I’m glad to say that we are still madly in love (apparently)… lol

HNI_0045

And I see she saved the flight attendant uniform I sent her… I am so evil lol. 😉

HNI_0046

Throughout the week, Cobb suggested that I build a drinking fountain as my next public works project. I thought it was a great idea for my park (Cobb has actually had quite a few good ideas as of late). Here’s the final product! 🙂

HNI_0049

And he didn’t stop there! Just today, he recommended a torch, another one I’ve been waiting for! Can’t wait to see how it looks once it’s built tomorrow!

HNI_0052

Another thing I realized today was that you can refurbish your stained glass window if you have one. I’ve been keeping one in my rococo room (if you remember from previous blogs), so I decided to visit Cyrus…

HNI_0054

Now, there’s a handy guide online (see my website) that tells you all of the combinations of design patterns you can make. So I chose one that I liked and set the alpaca to work! It came out great!!

HNI_0059

Today on ACC, I managed to score a few things. First off, somebody sold me a yellow aloha shirt and their hero’s cap for very very cheap!

HNI_0055

I then set up a thread where I would buy the remaining art pieces I need in my museum for 500k a piece. While this was a bit draining on my bank account (a total of 5 art pieces were bought!) I now only need 4 pieces of art until my exhibit is complete! I’m so excited!

HNI_0056

This might be my goal for this next week!

Coming up for Week 11…

  • Finish my art exhibit (repetitive… I know lol)
  • Update website:
  1. Music updates
  2. More pictures
  3. Gracie guide
  4. Index
  • Get more badges!!!

Day 50 & 51: Gold, gold, gold!

Sorry I’ve had a nasty habit of posting the daily blog every two days or so 😦 too many things in life. I woke up Tuesday morning to find that the darn fruit still didn’t rot…. maybe it takes like a week? Aw well, I have time to wait…

Image

In the meantime, I found my other bamboo path near the Town Hall to be growing in quite nicely!

Image

and also, my stone tablet is now completely consumed by a forest! Ayayay…

Image

I decided that morning that I wanted to try and grow my own gold roses… to do that, you first need black roses, which are a hybrid made from two red roses next to eachother… So I started a little field dedicated to red roses! For more info on hybrid flowers, visit my website (http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com)

Image

I read on the bulletin board that it was Frank’s birthday, meaning I had to pay him a visit later on!

Image

I found Phineas roaming through town, and he awarded me the silver Village Gardener badge for all of my hard work gardening!

Image

I was kinda put down that he wouldn’t give me any more badges, so I set up a trap with a pitfall for him…

Image

However, the joke was on me when I found out that none playable main characters can’t fall into pitfalls…… grr…. lol

Image

Victoria caught up with me, finally coming out of her sickness. She really appreciated the medicine I gave her…

Image

… and rewarded me with a shirt I will never wear. Awesome!

Image

I finally stopped by to see Frank, even giving him a present…

Image

I then went to my island and earned medals to buy a new wetsuit! It looks much better than the stripe one I had, which I gave to Matt because he didn’t have one yet 🙂

Image

My mail came and I got a few kitchen items, which further brought the room together. I decided to stick the barbecue bed in the museum DLC exhibit so I have more room… For one, it’s ugly and gross, and two, it will be better suited there than in my kitchen (regardless of it being a 7-11 item lol)

Image

You may notice I made the Brewstoid a cashier haha. Speaking of Brewster, I filled in for work and met two new faces, Gabi and Del, even though I didn’t get a special item reward that day…

Image

Image

As I always note, if you want to make perfect coffee every time, see the guide on my website.

Anyway, shortly after work, I headed up to see Dr. Shrunk on main street, who taught me the Resignation emotion…. well…. yeah, that’s all I have to say about that…

Image

I was able to play Tuesday night (for those that have followed me, you know nights are a bad time for me to play). I noticed that my town tree was bigger than it had been the previous day! So I could now sit beneath it on the ledge…

Image

And I discovered that if you sit beneath it long enough, a sort of history of your town will start scrolling along the side of the screen! Awesome!

Image

Now I just need to find a night to play when the Resetti Surveillance center is open…. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to go down there… 😦

Image

Gayle was having dirty thoughts about me apparently when I passed by her in town… She gave me her toy……

Image

I then went and hit the clubs, something else I don’t get to do very often..

Image

However, it’s not too fun by yourself 😦 I called it quits for the day and awaited the next morning….

Where I found Redd’s tent in my town square! Woo!

Image

The legit piece of art he had today was a new one to me, the amazing painting! If you want to be able to tell the reals from the fakes, visit my website!

Image

Frank tried his best to be thoughtful to me when I passed by him in town… but seriously… come on man

Image

A friend of mine online wanted to trade me some regular items for a good-luck roll, a Japan exclusive hold item! Nice… now I can hold it and stuff! 😀

Image

I decided to go to the island, and good thing I did! If you remember in my last post, my T.I.Y. store’s garden center carries 2 bush plants a day, which I’m using to build my “retaining” walls (lol). However, today at the island, a red hibiscus bush starter was one of the items (this also means unlimited stock!!) What I also found was that one of the tours available today is the hammer tour, which I can easily beat the “Elite” mode and get 12 medals every time!

Image

So, I’ll let you do the math, but the bushes are 5 medals a piece and I get 12 medals per 3 minute minigame, so… YES! 🙂 My town will come along much faster than I thought!

I also read online that cabana furniture can be customized with gold ore! I decided to put this to the test, and sure enough, Cyrus agreed to make me a cool bed! But I would have to wait 30 minutes for it to be done…

Image

In the meantime, I hit the town, and I found another one of those double silver balloons floating around…….. but I already got a 2nd silver slingshot, why am I getting another?

Image

I gave the item away to a random player and then went to visit Dr. Shrunk, who taught me a Shyness emotion… tee hee

Image

Now that I can perform the creepiest look in the world, I headed back to Re-Tail and picked up my golden cabana bed! It looks amazing! However, I was out of gold ore, and I would now have to treat the rest of my items in the same way… All in time!

Image

Erik caught up with me and suggested a water pump as my next public works project. Not what I was looking for, but it works for now…

Image

So I talked to Isabelle and she wanted to hold a (long awaited) ceremony for the stone tablet…

Image

And then I chose a location for the new water pump up by my town well!

Image

Which, of course, I paid off on the spot! 😀

Image

That’s when I heard the swooshing of a balloon gift and thought “Oh no… another silver slingshot…” However, this was much better! Three golden balloons floating overhead! I didn’t know this would come to me so quickly!

Image

I finally got my golden slingshot! No more needing to shoot down balloons! 😀

Image

Out of gold ore (like I said) and wanting to further remodel my home, I decided to give my exotic furniture collection a “Black & Red” makeover. You might remember my exotic lamp that I remodeled a couple of posts back. Well, this time around, I did my exotic screen, and it looks great!

Image

I followed it up with my exotic bench!

Image

I went to work at Brewster’s today, but to no avail (again! grr….) At any rate, Victoria basically told me she has some “special dance moves” specifically about me… 😉 Once again, just when you think this is a kid’s game… nope

Image

I personally think it’s a little morally unsound to start doing that in a coffee shop, but nonetheless, what can I say? We’re in love…

ANYWAY, I happened to stumble upon an online deal and traded 600k (where, if you remember, I have money up the wazzoo…. that’s pocket change lol) for 4 gold ores, 3 fossils I needed and a Super Star for my Nintendo exhibit! Now I am very very close to completing my museum fossils!

Image

I finished off the day by picking up my exotic wardrobe, which looks good in black and red!

Image

For Tomorrow:

  • Catalog event… seriously…. seriously seriously
  • More cabana remodels (with gold ore)
  • more DLC? perhaps. I’ll also clarify with my European friend that their new DLC is the festival lantern that I’ve had available for a while now.

Day 49: Best Buy DLC Round 4! And a Visit From Matt!

Another SpotPass home added to my HHA Showcase this morning! She also had many cool things that I ordered! This is all right, random people being added to the showcase!

Image

Anyway, straight after that, I headed to the post office to download the item that released yesterday, the double-neck guitar. To do this of course, I had to first switch my router name to “Bestbuy”.. (visit my website for more information, http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com).

Image

It’s the perfect item to cap off my guitar collection I’ve got going on in my music studio!

Image

I checked up on my pear that I’m waiting to rot… Still looking good… Better give it a couple more days lol

Image

As I made my way through town, that’s when I saw it… a pair of silver balloons! Luckily, a friend of mine already gave me the silver slingshot, but this felt good because now I’ve actually earned one! 😀

Image

The stone tablet forest is coming along great! I can hardly see anything in here!

Image

Also, I checked up on the two bushes I planted yesterday to check the theory that they can be planted beside bamboo. To a happy surprise, it worked! This is gonna be great! 🙂

Image

I rearranged my rococo room a bit. It’s looking really great

Image

I see that Victoria put the doghouse I gave her in her room… Oh yeah 🙂

Image

Don’t forget that the fireworks show is coming up this Sunday at 7 pm! (I hope I don’t forget)

Image

I found a cap at Labelle’s today that I really like. It’s gonna be my new style choice!

Image

The Museum 2nd floor shop finally has the jungle floor in to commemorate 50 total donated insect species! I’ve been waiting, because I’ve had over 50 for a while now! Awesome!

Image

I decided to put it in my Odds & Ends display room lol

Image

I hit the town again and Ken gave me a creative nickname… That’s cool…

Image

I’ve got more plans for bamboo in my town a-stirring! Can’t wait til everything grows to my liking 🙂

Image

I then rearranged my gyroids into alphabetical order (don’t ask why, it just seems more organized than before…)

Image

Frank caught up with me and tried to move out… Another resident that I’ve kept from leaving! He’s the only one with the “zen” themed personality type, so he’s a must-stay!

Image

I ordered another double-neck guitar for my DLC exhibit, which arrived promptly via mail!

Image

I also decided the direction I wanted to take my kitchen area. I made a simple design called “60’s Diner Tile” and left a large alpine table for Cyrus to work on!

Image

Upon my return, it was absolutely perfect! Exactly what I wanted! 😀

Image

I performed this treatment on another table and went to visit Dr. Shrunk. He taught me the daydreaming emotion today… Could be useful I suppose… 🙂

Image

I then had a good friend of mine, Matt, come over to visit! (You can find his info out on my website!). We had a great time!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

After a while of messing around, we called it a day. He’ll be back though! 🙂

To end my day, I decided to work at Brewster’s. I met this really eff-ed up looking sheep…. What in the world?

Image

Hmmm… regardless, I also found she wasn’t on the perfect coffee guide on my website, so I made a note below, and will do so for other’s that are missing!

I was ecstatic because after my work today, Brewster said he would give me a gyroid he made himself!!!

Image

It looks great in my kitchen! How cool is that?

Image

Now, I can finally say that this room is coming together nicely! Tomorrow shall be another step in the right direction! 😀

Image

For Tomorrow:

  • DUH-DUH-DUH!!!! Catalog event!! (Finally………)

Day 47 & 48: T.I.Y. Shopping Center!

I decided to start off my weekend playtime by filling in for work duty at Brewster’s. In the mix of four customers was a new face, Chow the panda. I knew exactly how to make his coffee (thanks to my handy guide on my website, http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com)

Image

Due to all of my hard work, Brewster finally presented me with my next prize, the cafe uniform! So dashing! 😀

Image

I returned to my house to find that my “mom” in the game had sent me a gift in the mail, a swimming cap… oh goody…

Image

I checked up on the pear I’m leaving out to rot (to attract ants and flies for my insect encyclopedia), but it still looked normal 😦

Image

I saw that my bamboo fantasy was slowly coming to life around town! Looking good!

Image

Also my mini-forest project around the stone tablet is coming together! These things will grow in no time at all! 😀

Image

I next visited main street and was excited to check out my new and improved store, T.I.Y.! It ties together the Nookling’s and the Garden Center!

Image

A cool fact that I didn’t know about was that they sell K.K. music there! I’m gonna try to attend concerts (to get the Phineas badge….) but in the meantime, this is a cool way to build my music collection (although, I have all 91 songs on catalog… I’m too lazy for ordering that much lol)

Image

Leif also let me know that he will open a weed pulling service! Not that I’ll need it, I pull my own weeds, but thanks anyway Leif!

Image

I checked up Victoria, and she was still down and out with a cold… 😦

Image

However, unlike the day before, my store was now open for business, and I could get her the medicine she needed to get better!

Image

I wrecked more havoc on my town, coming up with more ridiculous sayings….

Image

I also obtained a wooden stool…. this is not exciting new at all, but now I can appear to be actually playing piano while sitting down!

Image

To end Saturday off, Dr. Shrunk taught me his Sunniness emotion!

Image

Now, instead of that boring smile that I had before, I have a very exaggerated one! People shall now know when I smile…

Image

It was also Erik’s birthday, I had almost forgotten, so I swung by and gave him a gift (coincidentally, an item he himself put into Re-Tail… He liked it nonetheless!)

Image

Sunday began in a similar fashion, I went in for work at Brewster’s and met an interesting fellow named Beardo…… No prize item for working though 😦

Image

Oh well, next time perhaps. Phineas was also sitting in drinking a cup of coffee! He made a comment that he hasn’t made a badge for good coffee making yet….. well maybe you should, lazy a$$…..

Image

Forgot to mention that via mail yesterday, I got a return gift from Erik for showing up to his b-day party the day before, it was a folk guitar! Sweet! I didn’t know that the country and folk guitars were different! Now I have a nice collection!

Image

Anyway, back to Sunday…. Upon scanning the town, I found yet another Jacob’s Ladder growing there!

Image

I also noticed that my forest is coming along nicely!

Image

Also, the new and improved garden center sells bushes which, as I’ve heard, can be planted in between bamboo… This would make my catalog event field secluded and a really nice place, so, I’m testing this out! I will find out tomorrow if it works or not!

Image

To end the day, I visited Dr. Shrunk and he taught me to show Glee through emotion! Woohoo!

Image

For Tomorrow:

  • Downloading the next BestBuy DLC, the double-neck guitar!
  • Matt, a good friend of mine, will pay me a visit!

Day 46: More Psychedelic Dreams…

I woke up this morning to find that a model Eiffel Tower had made its way into my mailbox from Gulliver! Pretty cool!

Image

Today, several more bamboo shoots were in the ground for me to dig up (this must happen every 2-3 days I’m guessing, like fruit regrowing)

Image

I have plans for all of them 🙂 Anyway, barely making it a foot from my house, I noticed another balloon gift. If you’ve been keeping up with my blogs, you’ll note I’m only shooting them down for the badge from Phineas (for a full list of badges, visit my website, http://animalcrossingnewleaf.moonfruit.com)

Image

Also, Gayle tried to leave as soon as she could this morning, but I wouldn’t let her. I don’t know why, she’d be the easiest to let go, but I don’t wanna eff up my town by her house disappearing and someone else’s coming in at any location… after all, my paths are pretty well laid out!

Image

Starting my great bamboo plan, I stumbled upon a gold nugget ore! Two more to get another golden furniture item 🙂

Image

While traversing the town, I was very surprised to find yet another balloon gift… Hey, whatever gets me closer to that 50 mark!

Image

I visited main street to find that the Nookling’s shop and garden center were under construction, as promised!

Image

In my town square, Redd was visiting today! Unfortunately, the only legit item he was selling was a painting I already have… So I might try to trade someone for another legit painting… hmmmmmm

Image

I swung by Victoria’s to see why she wasn’t out and about like normal and she was complaining because she’s sick 😦 as much as I want to bring her medicine, the store’s all closed up for the remodel…

Image

I started talking to Shari outside and she told me that she wanted to buy 2 shirts off from me. However, I chose an option to just give them to her for free, and she was elated! 😀

Image

Frank got an excited manner when I walked by, and I got antsy (because I’ve been waiting for him to recommend a Zen structure for my town… He’s the only one with the grumpy personality type to do it…) However, he recommended something else, a stone table public works project… hey, that works too!

Image

I set up a location in the middle of town (ish), which I paid off immediately

Image

I then set up some surroundings, I think it will look cool enveloped in a mini-forest… we’ll see how it turns out!

Image

I did a little bit of diving today, and came across another scallop, which is good because now I can put one in my museum (since I gave my first one to Pascal)

Image

I then decided to do a little more dream traveling today. Now, I’m really sorry that I don’t remember the addresses… I googled something like “New Leaf creepy dream addresses” and came up with these….. Looks like a drug addict made this first one…. but I’ll let you look through the pics and see for yourself!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The second one I visited wasn’t quite as demented, and actually had some cool layouts…

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Done dreaming for the day, I decided to go visit Dr. Shrunk and he taught me the Worried expression!

Image

To finish off the day, I was looking for more bugs and fish to catch when I noticed that to get the fly and ant, as with previous games, you need rotten fruit or turnips. So I placed a pear outside and will wait for it to rot to hopefully add these two to my encyclopedia!

Image

I will go work at Brewster’s later and will note if I get any special items in my next blog post! See you all soon! 😀
