That's a lot of christmas shit.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 The stuff Jingle gives you is random. It doesn't matter how you answer the questions. Just put on a different hat everytime you find him, and he'll give you another random present.

He should be around on Christmas day too. It was fun but a pain in the ass chasing him down on Christmas Eve. I got some pics.

Thanks raven for the info.

Well, I got sick of my dirt town, and decided to do somthing about it. Using the Wii's internal clock, I time traveled one-day-at-a-time two months into the future. My town now has about 40-50% increase in snow. Unfortuantely, I had two town members move out, but I really don't care that much. I have two new ones now. I may continue to do another 2 months of time traveling to retrieve the rest of my lost grass/snow.

I did not decide to do this lightly. I have recently come to the point where I simply wasn't enjoying the game like I was before all of this "animal tracks" nonsense. It seems that Nintendo is hell bent on punishing AC owners who play the game too much, and that pisses me off. I normally hate cheating in a game, but in this case, I don't consider it cheating. I consider it a fix for bad programing. I also have not kept any of the items (fossils, gyroids, ect.) that have shown up due to my time traveling. I tossed all of them into the recycle bin.

I have confirmed a couple things about "animal tracks", though

(Note: AC's town is based on a grid, I call each square in that grid a tile)

You can only damage a tile once per gamplay session: If you only play ACCF once per day, then you can only damage a tile once. It doesn't matter if you are running or walking, the damage is the same. I walked/ran over the same group of tiles over and over again, and only one level of damage formed. However, if you have muliple gameplay sessions per day, saving/exiting the game between each, then you can damage the tile more than once per day. During the first month that I had ACCF, I had 3 or 4 sessions per day which resulted in 4x the normal damage to my grass. This is why my town looks like crap.

Tiles will take about 4 days to fix one level of damage: This is a rough guestimate, but I believe it's accurate. According to a recent Iwata Asks interview, the devs that worked on ACCF claimed that it would only take a day or two to fix a damaged tile. I don't believe this is true because I have carefully monitored what two days does to a tile, and I can't see any difference at all until the fourth day.

Not playing for several days or weeks will not regerate grass/snow: When I first time traveled, I went one week into the future, and my town looked exactly the same. I then went six months into the future, and all of damaged titles still looked exactly the same. However, going into the future   one-day-at-a-time for a week, then I saw real improvements in my town. In order to regerate your grass, you have to turn it on once per day. If you skip a week, only one days worth of regeneration will occur, not seven. this is another bad programing decision. AC works on a real-time clock/calendar, so the passage of time should regenerate your town even when you are not playing, but that is not the case here.

Animals don't damage tiles: I have watched this very carefully, and while they do leave footprints in the snow, they don't seem to damage the grass/snow at all. This is a good thing since they only damage that can be done to your town is only from human players.

Online multiplayers cannot damage your town's grass?: I have not had the chance to fully confirm this, but I believe it's true based upon my last trip to Gamingeeks town. I could not see any noticable damage happening from my walking on his snow. I really hope that this is true, but further investigation is required to be certain.

_________

Once I have fully restored my town's grass/snow, I will then make another Town Tour video for Youtube showing the differences that have been made. I believe that once it's all done, I will be able to once again enjoy this game the way it should be enjoyed. I'll just have to be more carefull with how I play it for now on, though.

Did you not just store your fossils or give them to Brewster first?

Do you literally have to start the game, save then go back to the Wii menu and change the wii internal clock each time? For two months worth of play? So you did it 60 times? Ouch. 

The nintendo guy said that the grass would START to recover after 1 day of not walking on it. 

What Jingle items did you send me BTW Raven? 

I got a Jingle Carpet and wardrobe spare do you want them or should I send them to Steel?

 I did not keep any fossils, gyroids or other items that I recieved from time traveling because I consider that cheating. It's a personal choice. I prefer not to cheat in my games.

Yup. I actually did it 90 times now, since I did another months worth before bed last night. My town now has about 80% of its grass back. I'm much happier with it now. I also have several new residents to talk to now. Happy

Perhaps it does start to recover in one day, but it is not noticable at all. 

I sent you the Jingle piano and rug.

You can give those other items to Steel since I already have them.

 So you have pears, cherries and peaches like me right? And coconuts too. Seems that we all need apples and oranges. Your gate is unbelievable. My gate is like a crap wooden shack. I envy these guys with castles for gates Sad I sent you some gifts too. If you put your details in the online thread, you can hook up with Ravenprose and SteelAttack too. You know what was cool? When I got home I got a letter from Tammi in your town.

New DLC in the Japan version. They are getting DLC out more quickly than I thought.

The ice cream stuff is DLC.

Anyone know where I can get a list and samples of KK Slider songs so I know what to request?

Why don't you spam the online thread with all your info? I have a collection up of all our codes and stuff. Did you get the Wii message I sent to register my other character?

Ah the northern lights, just chillaxing in Fortress.

I'm such a michevious scamp Nyaa The catchphrases keep coming.

I am the catchphrase God!


So I made a second character. I made a female called Amy because I had an Amy Futurama Mii I wanted to use. Why? Well my storage case was almost full with items and no new rooms were forthcoming though I hear that you get 3 per house in City Folk. Now I have a seaside pad to dump items in and make new rooms. But making a female character was also a stroke of genius, before all the female clothing and womanly items went to waste, I just ignored them, but that is missing out on half the items in the game. Now I can deck my second house out with pink walls and try out all the lastest girly hats and stuff. Living out the transvestite dream Happy
