Advantages of making another player character in your town

#1KasumiSchoolgrlPosted 7/11/2013 4:16:19 PM
This is my first AC game, so I apologize if this is common knowledge, but I have a few questions after reading some other threads, so here goes:

I assume the village will remain the same whichever player character you use (no more than 4 fossils, 2 furniture items from trees, etc.), and I gather that more than one villager can visit Katrina, but what about:

1. Redd's gallery - could you get 2 pieces of art for the museum?
2. Saharah - will she redecorate other player houses as well when she's in town?
3. Other players houses - do they get the same upgrade options for their houses, and does the HHA assess those as well?

Any other advantages (or problems) I haven't thought of?

Some people may consider having 2 houses to decorate as an advantage. Or having one of each gender allows you to see some of the differing dialogue from characters (like from smug villagers or kapp'n)

1. You can get one piece of art with each character, so yes, you can get all four.
2. Each character can pay her the 3k when she visits each town. Very nice.
3. They all have seperate loans, and judging.

Basically they get their own save file, because it's supposed to be for other people to play. The only difference is mayoral duties.

some people use them as "pattern mules", that is, they hold the patterns that are used for paths or signs or whatever to free up more for the main character.

You can also use them to order 5 more items from the happy home showcase per day (if you get a lot of streetpasses)

Give all 4 characters Silvers Shovels, Find Money-turned-Gem Rocks more often

(I get at least 1 Money-turned-Gem Rock almost every day this way)

i'm pretty sure that while the number of fossils stays the same, you actually get however many bell trees and furniture-in-trees *per character*. so 2 pieces of furniture per character, not total. like the money rock.

In addition to what was mentioned:
- Multiple K.K. Slider songs per week
- Each character gets a money rock (edit: ninja'd)
- Each character must unlock certain things on his/her own:
---- Cyrus
---- Island
---- I think the QR reader
---- Mannequins
---- HHA fronts
- Each character can collect his/her own HHA rewards, post office rewards, and golden tools
- Only one character can rent out and manage a given museum space

I sometimes like to think about creating other characters so I can have them donate stuff to the museum.

That way, when I see "donated by___", I won't feel as lonely.
