I don’t think it affects balance at all and the in game economy was interesting enough to make the front page of the FT. I thought it was interesting Nook Mile Tickets immediately became an alternative currency as they are in effect a time limited resource.

I don't have a problem with it, I just think its an interesting design choice because it splits the players in terms of progression. I'm into game design so it's fun to look at the reasoning and results of those choices. I also find the player psychology interesting, for example the only reason I started going for big turnip hauls was because I was playing the game so much I kept running out of storage and rooms to play with. So I was always desperate to pay off the house loans so I could do more stuff in the game because I was loving it.

Nice one. I already have one in my catalogue so there's still one up for grabs at Nook if anyone else is after one.

It just demonstrates that there's a bit of a disconnect between what people want - a good online sandboxy-economy game, as people want to, and enjoy the money making / trading thing. But it's clear it's not really want Nintendo intended people to do with it. Naive perhaps.

 

But while my initial reaction was wondering why people want to do it at all with AC when there are games that do this better (IDK what it's like now but I knew people that would almost never venture outside of a capital city in World of Warcraft because buying and selling on the auction house was game enough for them). But perhaps people want to do this sort of trading thing along side a world of friendship and charm, and enjoy the reward of building amazing towns as opposed to in, say, World of Warcraft where the reward is just supposedly equipping for battle and looking tough.

I assume the stools appearing are because there's music and a microphone stand.

I think the chairs appear and disappear according to how much they want to sit there. My son has more stuff around the plaza and the chairs appear quite often, but I rarely see them.

Thanks. This is the first time I'd ever had anything surrounding the square so this is the first time I'd seen them outside of a KK concert. Currently playing Bubblegum KK which is clearly the best song for the residents to sing along to.

Sorry, it was new to me so did not get a duplicate to share, quite a few people visited this morning so perhaps one of them grabbed it as a duplicate.

If not then happy to make for you and post/ drop off.  They are 24 stone each

The only reason I’d need to keep doing turnips (I didn’t bother this week), is to fund customisation kits. I go through them like nobody’s business. Easily spent a million on them.

Just catching up on this thread due to being late to the Animal Crossing Party. 

 

Amazed to discover that Raymond is sought after.  We thought he was a wanker and complained about him hoping he'd leave. He stayed though. I now find that I could be an Animal Crossing Gazzillionaire if I sold him but a) I have no idea how to sell him and b) it seems too mean to sell him to some internet stranger.  What if they mistreat him?

 

So, we've got the weird situation of not really wanting him to stay and not really knowing how to get him to leave and if we should cash in on him.  I'm slightly amazed people care that much to have developed a black market for villagers!

Pretty straight forward that path, eh?

Incidentally, I shot a picture of you from the cliff top as you filmed that :)

Anyone else's garden and I'd have been amused, but not my Cookie :o
