I have like a total of 6 villagers right now. I’ll check my rating tomorrow
I have myself, the wife, and 8 villagers. Isabelle will give you feedback on how to raise your rating. She told me to add more residents and decorate outside more. Even at 3-stars she's saying to decorate more outside.

The Able Sisters finally set up shop on my island and they have some pretty cool designs (I particularly like the 3d glasses).



You also can post some of your own designs online. I am not a creative soul but as a Zelda fan I just had to make a triforce (it's also on my custom nook phone case). Not the best triforce but if anyone wants to use it here is the code.



I finally caught Nemo (a clownfish) to accompany Dory (a surgeonfish) and a giant water bug around one of my rivers. I also caught a flea off of a rhino villager of mine (her name is Rènee).

I think Switch doesn’t show the playtime until 10 or 11 days right? It’s such a weird design choice.

What? How this fast?
I kept asking Isabelle for my island eval and eventually she gets feedback from kk once I got 3 star just like Maidens post above.

I have about 8 residents and I'd recommend lots of fences. Once I added decent fencing it seemed to bring the rating up by 2 stars.

I wonder how it gets rated. I have 0 fences and also a 3 star rating. For me I guess it is because I have over 300 flowers planted on my island.

How do you kick villagers out?
you really can't unless you have an amiibo card

they other way is to ignore them and keep watch over them when they look grumpy with a little cloud over their heads talk to them for a chance they will tell you they are thinking of moving

you hve 2 choices tell them to stay or encourage them to go

I thought I read that Isabelle can kick villagers out. You can report them through her so I’m guessing there’s a mechanic for it. Haven’t cared enough to try yet though. That bell grind to improve my town is BRUTAL. 😅

I tried getting isabelle to get that shit pietro out my town but when you talk to her you can choose either you have a problem with how they look or have a problem with how they speak to you. If theres an annoying outfit they wear she can get them to stop wearing it and im guessing she can change their personallity as well if you find they have an annoying one but despite me reporting pietro multiple times on both options the turd wouldn't take the hint.

Not until i brandished an amiibo then it was.

So, I'm absolutely tired of eggs. I'm just hoarding them at this point, as I'm not finding any interest in crafting most things I would need them for...but they're just everywhere and interfering with what I was enjoying, which is collecting.

If I time travel now to after the bunny day stuff is done, then back when it's actually over, will I screw anything up?

So is the only way to get all the fruits is to visit someone else’s island? So I have to buy Switch Online?

Pretty much. If you need any lmk.

I was going to play some Ys VIII but this beaver CJ is making me rich buying all my fish. AC has me by the balls right now.

Almost at 100 hours already. I know that’s not as much as others here but that’s a ton for me in such a short period of time.

I'm feeling the same way, so I might jump ahead to Apr. 13, then back to the 11th on actual Apr. 12, then turn internet time back on. I think that will work, but I'm speculating.

I believe reporting them for language will get them to change what they call you, for clothing will get them to change outfits. I think if you want them gone, just freeze them out--no dialogue, and smack them with your net.

I unlocked terraforming. I thankfully had enough miles to get all the varieties. I've laid out quite a few paths so far. I am not super interested in re-routing the river or changing the landscape just yet. I'm sure I will make some changes later, but I do like the layout as is.

So is the only way to get all the fruits is to visit someone else’s island? So I have to buy Switch Online?
You can get more through the Nook miles Ticket. I was able to get all varieties expect one through this method. It's rare to get a non-native fruit though.

I have a new 8th islander now named Fuchsia, she seems to be a pink deer and she seems cute. I like her color, style, and proclivity to play games. You have to play a card guessing game for her to stay and sometimes she give you a gift if you get it right.



On my mystery island trip I went to an area full of rocks with tons of bells inside, so that was helpful.



C.J. (a beaver who seems to be a friend of Flick) came to my island today. He acts exactly like Flick but instead of buying bugs and making models of them, he works with fish. Which is pretty helpful considering I randomly caught an oarfish, blue marlin, and a tuna fish today.

I am sick of these eggs, tempted to time travel out of this season but the cherry blossoms have cool DIY that I can't get to drop every DIY was Eggs

oh they can sit on these paths and block you from walking, maybe my maze idea is going to mess with me
trolls







I should not time travel until I see what happens with a 5 star town


now I really need roses

anyone want to trade 10 rose plants for a golden watering can?

After my last post, a very generous member PM’d me and added me to their family plan. Was very hesitant to spend $25 cnd because I only plan to play this game, so I am very grateful.

If anyone wants to add me as a friend, I am very interested in visiting some islands. My current fruits are cherries, coconuts and pears.

Man, this egg event has really killed my enthusiasm for the game. I was looking forward to the new fish and bugs to catch, and now all I get are eggs. I hate the recipes too. I can’t wait for this event to be over.
you'll feel even sadder if you saw the recipes for the cherry blossoms they are really good but ends on the 10th

Someone with Roses as native flower let me come buy some from your nooks!




they are found the same way the Egg event is and it overlaps so far I have only gotten Egg DIYs almast all of them in one day not a single Cherry Blossom DIY
I should have roses in my nook shop, im starting up the game to double check for you. Depending on what you need I might be able to give you the fully grown plants too. What do you need exactly?

edit:

Nooks sells Red and white roses here.
