Nice fish, Steel! Happy

My Nook's is upgrading today, so I'll have a brand new and fully expanded Nook's tomarrow morning. What a Merry Christmas present that'll be. Happy

Apparently, it's a taimen. Not a stringfish. I don't wanna take off the mask! Sad

Yeah, I got the Higgins mii, lol. Thanks.

 There's only two ways I can think of that'll rott tunips:

  1. The turnips are over a week old (turnips only last 7 days).
  2. Time traveling (i.e someone changed the games clock or date)

Now, there is a third possibility which is an odd glitch of somekind. Every game has glitches, so that could also be possible.

Oh shit. I usually play at nights so I turn back the clock a few hours to find Nook's and city stores open. Damn. That's a good 70 grand down the fucking toilet. From now on I stick with regular time, right?

I think as long as your Animal Crossing in-game clock is the same as your Wii clock, then you should be fine changing it. I believe the game reads both to determine if you have been time traveling or not. Mind you, this is just a theory, but I've read similar things on the ACC forums.

Wait you can still fix it. Travel back at the exact moment you went time travelling the last time and stop your past self from time travelling. Nyaa

Well, it's been nearly a week, and I'm finally starting to notice some improvement in my grass. As you guys have seen from my town tour video, I laid down some patterns to walk on, and for the most part, I have kept the majority of my walking on them. Tonight, I was walking along real slow I definately saw some tiny little specs of grass begining to form in the worn down areas. Comparing them to my video, I have come to the conclusion that they were not there on Sunday night. This is growth, albeit very, very slow growth, but growth nonetheless.

 I'm also seeing my pathways taking shape too. I removed some of my patterns, and I can definately see little dirt paths separated by the grass and snow. It's pretty neat to seem these paths form, and I'm sure that's what the developers had intended. Overall, my town is looking a fair bit better than it had last week. Happy

______________

I saw Jingle tonight, and I managed to trick a bunch of presents out of him. Happy Unfortunately, he gave me some duplicates too. Sad 

I got:

  • Jingle Piano x2
  • Jingle Rug x2
  • Jingle wallpaper 
  • Jingle Dresser

I didn't get the entire set, but there's always next year!

You lot are making me want to give the GC Animal Crossing a second chance...

 I want that Piano and rug. NOW. I got the wallpaper, carpet and some cuboard and something else I forget. Christmas day was bunk though, no special stuff. Stalking Jingle from house to house was fun. I saw your video, your towns grass is worse than mine. I think this paths feature would be okay if it was explained properly in game and if it encouraged you to mark down routes. 

So where were you Steel today on Christmas day? I checked and your gates were not open Sad

I waited for 20 minutes and nuthin. Damn you! Ho ho ho!

I opened my gates at 11:00 am exactly. And waited about 45 minutes. Nobody showed up. Then I cried and went to play Metal Gear Solid 4.

Now I know what Raven was talking about, this guy has his town up as a racist Nazi haunt. 

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=342116&page=17

Imagine if you were friends with him and your characters started using his letters or phrases?

But look at this! Someone got most of the jingle items:

Did you get anything from Jingle?

I dont get how it works? You can change disguises to get more stuff. But he asks you if you want:

Something to lean on

Something to Step on

Something huge

Something huge

So isn't that only 4 items? Raven you got repeat items. I only got the four because other people wanted to use the TV on Christmas eve. Stupid people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
