Yet Another Update

This one’s short!

Me: “Hey, Katie’s getting back into ACNL and stuff, and I KIND OF wanted to play on vacation, so I should check ACNL! Especially since I actually have the helpful little piece of paper that tells me what date to go to!”
Me: *goes to play ACNL*
Me: *tries to plot reset AGAIN*
Ganon’s House: *still in the same #$(%*#()%*#$ spot I can’t block off in any way, shape, or form*
Me: “NOPE.”

Another Update (and Venting)

So I’ve officially become one of those bloggers. You know, the ones who post about ACNL, then mysteriously disappear, then magically reappear for all of five seconds.

In my case, though, it’s not really a mystery.

I haven’t been posting because I’ve had nothing to post. I’ve had nothing to post because I more or less ragequit.

You see, plot resetting is hard. It is particularly hard when the person you want to move into your town keeps moving one space away from where you want them. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but I spent a long time preparing this whole residential area, and having a neighbor move one space away screws up the entire thing.

Did I mention that this spot one space away is also where the neighbor who just moved out had their house, so I can’t do ANYTHING about this other than endless plot resetting? 🙂


After many many failed attempts, I decided to take a hiatus from ACNL. This is because I was getting to the point where I wanted to scream IRL, and I don’t think my neighbors would like that.

Oh, and I got a Switch and BotW, meaning I had to unplug my 3DS charger temporarily. I keep meaning to change things around and get a more permanent setup, but I’ve been pretty busy lately. As for BotW, if you want to hear about one particular experience I had, go read about it here.

So that’s what’s been happening with me. Hopefully I’ll find some time to play ACNL during my upcoming vacation, but I don’t know for sure.

If you want non-ACNL content from me, please check out my main blog!


Sorry for not posting a lot. I got sick and then I’ve just been dealing with some personal things I don’t really want to go into here. I’ve also been spending a lot of time in my other towns, and I don’t post about those, soooooo… There just hasn’t been a lot happening. I’m mostly waiting for the chance to kick out some villagers so I can move other ones in. (I don’t change the date in my towns unless there’s something I really want that’s happening the next day, or unless I’m moving someone in.)

I did figure out how to take nice, clear pictures of ACNL/HHD characters, though, so have a me:


And a me in waifu2x. The edges look ugly, though… Bleh.


These were taken for the BRD banner, so be sure to look out for that sometime soon!

Anyway, that’s pretty much it! Hopefully I’ll be able to post more later. 😛

Aika Revisited

I’ve been a horror town fan for almost as long as I’ve actually played ACNL. In fact, Aika was the first dream town I ever went to. So when I heard it’d been updated, I decided to make it my first updated dream town to visit, too.

We all know the story, so I’m mostly just going to focus on the new stuff. I’m also going to put this under a Read More in case people don’t want said new stuff spoiled for them.

Here’s the new Dream Address, though:


…So we’ve gone ahead 31 years now. Huh.

Am I generic yet?

I wanted to see what the difference was between Photoshop (which I use to edit my ACNL pictures) and waifu2x (which everyone else seems to use to edit THEIR ACNL pictures). So here’s the same picture edited with both.



The blurriness in Photoshop kind of bugs me (and I don’t have the option to sharpen the details since my version isn’t CS/CC), but waifu2x just feels…very blobby. And generic. Like, I’m genuinely worried that if I keep using it, I’ll turn into some basic AC Tumblr blogger who hates caps and adds 39084029834902 kaomojis to every single post.

Also, in the Photoshop version, you can at least tell my shirt has stripes…

Really, though, IDK. They both have their pros and cons. I guess I’ll probably stick to Photoshop for now because it’s more convenient.

And yes, this is the kind of stuff I post when I can’t make much actual landscaping/moving progress.

Breakthrough Part 3

It worked! 😀 Now I just need to figure out what kind of path I’m going to put in here…


Also, I’ve gotten my stuff together and finally started moving in some villagers! I have the cards/figures of everyone I’m interested in having move in, so it’s just a matter of getting certain villagers to certain people when they have the room. Of course, now that I’m actually feeling productive, I have to wait a day or two to get everyone moved out… :/

I’m actually very happy with this entire realization, because it’s made me like my house position a whole lot more. The space in front of my house is useful, the peninsula that used to be that random awkward park is now useful, and it just feels like everything is starting to come together in general. So yay! 😀

Breakthrough Part 2

Well, I was in my main town today, and I think the plan I talked about in this post is going to work after all! So now all I have to do is demolish the fountain and benches in that area, put down my path, and start my bridge.

I’m probably going to make it a villager-house-heavy area, but then again, I say that about a lot of parts of my town and yet that never really works out the way I want it to. But hey, I can actually make house plots now, so…?

Oh, yeah. I have to keep putting down patterns. Ugh. I managed to finish maybe half of my town already, but there are still a few spots I’m not really looking forward to. Wish me luck, I guess?


First off, sorry about the lack of posts. I’ve just been busy/trying to set up other towns. 😛

Anyway, like I said, a lot of things in my town leave me kind of unsatisfied. A major thing is the fact I have a bunch of villagers’ houses right behind mine, and the paths in that area are…awkward. Ugh. And because I am overly sentimental, kicking said villagers out isn’t really an option, either.

But when I was thinking about this the other day, I got an idea… What if I didn’t have paths there? What if I built a third bridge by the front of my house, redid my garden, and planted trees in the back? The only problem might be that the trees would cut into the path leading to Jacques’ house, but I guess I could probably work around that.

Oh, yeah, it’d make that weird park area I have (where I now wish I’d put my house) somewhat useful, too. Yay.

I guess we’ll see whether or not this works out. Or maybe I’ll just continue neglecting my main town and using it to dupe stuff! 😀
