Villager move out question

#1jaigaiPosted 9/30/2013 12:08:19 AM
My villager was in boxes and went to sleep for the day. Is there any way to catch her before she moves out?

Time travel back to earlier in the day (no earlier than 6am)

I thought once a villager was in boxes, that was it, they would move.
As to TT - I'm not sure if it helps even if the villager is not in boxes.

If you have turnips - then they will spoil if you go backwards in time even if its just a few minutes.

The villager will still move, but someone can still have the chance to come over and convince them to move to their town. I don't think TC was asking how to make them not move. If that is what they were asking then you're right, it won't help

The problem is that I saved after she went to sleep for the day (after midnight, so the date is now her move out date). I read that change the date backwards still counts as a day forward, so I don't think it would work if I TT to her box date. Is there still a way to catch her, TT or not, while she's awake so my friend can come convince her to move to their village?

The new day starts at 6am, not midnight, so yes TT would work as long as you don't pass 6am in either direction

Great, it worked, thanks a lot. Completely forgot about the day starting at 6am.
