   Updates and Version History +UVH
=====================================

1/09/09 - Version 0.3
========
I've fleshed out several sections, and
corrected a few factual errors that I had
received in contributions. I am currently
seeking information for the Event Calendar,
as I don't time travel.

12/08/08 - Version 0.2
========
In this update, I have included prices in the
Bug and Fish charts, added more information for
the entire Special Visitors section, and made
minor improvements in all areas.

12/01/08 - Version 0.1
========
I have the basic layout of this guide all set up,
with some general information that I hope to flesh
out in the coming weeks. It may look very long and
complete to you, but trust me, there are plenty of
spots that need to be built upon.

=====================================




   Introduction +INT
=======================

Hello, and welcome to my guide for Animal Crossing:
City Folk. There's not much to say here that hasn't been
said already. I mean, it's Animal Crossing! Since you're
reading this FAQ, I'll just assume that you already own
the game the game, or are interested enough to seriously
look into it. If you didn't think there was enough to do
in Animal Crossing, or didn't like having to share your
house in Wild World, then City Folk just may be the game
for you.

In case you're inexperienced with conputers, or are just
unaware of the fact, you can press CTRL+F to find content
on the current page. Next to each section in the Table of
Contents, you'll see a two or three letter acronym with a
plus sign in front of it, such as +INT; type it into the
seach bar to find the corresponding section on the page.
(note: this feature is not case sensitive)

   Your New Life +YNL
========================

The first step in your new life is getting on the bus!
Or, rather, selecting "I'm new!" from the menu. You can
either create a new character, or transfer an existing
character from Animal Crossing: Wild World. Just to clear
up any confusion, the "DS Suitcase" menu option is
unrelated to this process.


 DS Character Transfer
=======================

If you want to transfer your character from Wild World,
follow the on-screen instructions of using DS Downoad
Play to download the Moving Van, which will copy your
character's information to your Wii. Choose the name of
the character you want to use from the list, and you'll
be ready to play.

Your DS character will arrive in your town with the
hairstyle and catalog they had at the time of transfer,
the clothes they started with in Wild World, and nothing
else. None of your items, bells, patterns, or saved mail
are carried over.


 Character Creation
====================

The first thing you'll be asked to do is enter your
name. Rover will say that he likes is, and you will have
the options, "Cool, eh?" and "Cute, hm?". The former is
the male choice, while the latter is for girls. Confirm
your gender choice in the next line of dialog. If this is
the first character you've created, he'll ask the name of
the town you're moving to. Either way, Rover will show you
a map of your new home.

He will then ask you a series of questions that will
determine your face, as well as the hairstyle and clothes
you start out with. The clothes and hair can both be changed
your first day (provided you don't start playing at night),
but your face is permanent.

When completed, this section will contain a comprehensive
guide on character creation, but at the moment, there are
sections that the Animal Crossing: City Folk community find
more pressing, so I'll get back to this after writing them.


 Working for Nook
==================

Now that you've arrived in your new home, it's time to
buy a house! Find the Town Hall on your map and talk to 
the receptionist inside, then go out to choose one of the
four available houses. You can buy whichever one you want,
but things to take into consideration are distance to the
important buildings in town and an easy-to-follow path
between the house and Town Gate.

Tom Nook, your new landlord, will approach you every
time you exit one of the prospective residences; once
you've made your choice, tell him you'd like to buy it
to seal the deal. Since you decided to move to your new
town penniless, you can't pay your house off right now.
As luck would have it, Nook has a few chores he needs
done, so meet him inside his shop to start your new
part-time job. This part is kind of annoying, but
is basically the game's tutorial.

The first task Nook will give you is to meet Mayor
Tortimer, and all of the animals that have houses in
town. Tortimer is in the Town Hall, and all of your
neighbors will stay in or around their houses.

Now that you've met everyone, Nook will make you
change into a work uniform before you continue. Do
so, then talk to him again for your first real job;
planting four flowers and three saplings around the
shop. You can actually plant them wherever you want,
just get rid of them before talking to him again.

Once that's out of the way, he'll have you deliver
a piece of furniture to one of his customers. As Nook
usually delivers items through the mail for free, this
must be a favor to you. As thanks, the recipient of the
package will give you a piece of furniture that they no
longer need. They will also ask what your birthday is.

Next, Nook wants you to write a letter of thanks to
one of his more frequent customers. In your inventory,
select the stationary, choose the animal you're supposed
to send it to from the list, and write whatever you want.
Remember, however, that the animal may someday show this
letter to other players; try not to write anything you
wouldn't want people to see or attribute to you. Once
you're done, go to the window on the right in Town
Hall to send the letter.

Nook has another delivery job for you, this time a
carpet or wallpaper. When you deliver it, you'll be
thanked with a gift again, this time receiving the
carpet/wallpaper the one you brought is replacing.

Yet another delivery! You'll be taking a tool (usually
a Watering Can) to the person you sent that letter to.
They will show you the letter and ask if you're the one
who wrote it, then explain that everyone in town loves
getting mail.

Your final job for Nook is to write an advertisement
for Nook's Cranny on the bulletin board next to Town
Hall. Write whatever you want, then return to the shop
and Nook will set you free. These tasks earned you
1,400 Bells, which Nook keeps, leaving you with a
debt of 18,400 to pay off.

There are a number of ways to pay it off, but I
won't get into it here. On the previous page, under
the In-Depth FAQs section, click on the Money Making
Guide by Migitoneo3. I haven't personally read any of
it, but he does good work, so I'm sure it contains all
of the information that you could possibly need.


 Tools of the Trade
====================

Your success in this town hinges on your ability
to successfully use the tools available in Nook's
shop. You can equip tools from your inventory, or
press left and right on your Wii Remote's D-pad to
switch between tools (down on the D-pad to unequip).
All basic and silver tools can be bought from Nook's
for 500 Bells unless otherwise noted.


=Fishing Rod=

The Fishing Rod is the most commonly-stocked tool
at Nook's, and is probably the most useful one at the
beginning of the game. As you can imagine, its sole use
is for fishing in bodies of water. For more on fishing,
see the Fish List sub-section of The Museum.

 -Silver Rod-
Once Nook's has upgraded (see the Nook's section
below), every so often he will stock a silver tool.
The Silver Rod has a shiny silver lure, which will
attract fish more quickly than the one that came
with the normal Fishing Rod.

 -Golden Rod-
Once you've caught every species of fish that
appears in your town (there are sixty-four), Mayor
Tortimer will reward you with the Golden Rod. With
a dazzling gold lure and more intricate hooks, fish
will flock to it, and remain on the line longer.


=Shovel=

My personal favorite tool, Shovels are used, of
course, to dig holes. You never know when it could
be beneficial to dig, so it's always useful to have
a Shovel on hand.

 -Silver Shovel-
The Silver Shovel is given to you by Mr. Resetti
at the Reset Surveillance Center in the city, which
opens at 8:00 p.m. on random nights (see my City FAQ
on the previous page for more information). The Silver
Shovel will never break, and has a 10% chancet to give
you more than the normal amount of Bells when striking
Money Rocks (see the Daily Grind section below).

 -Golden Shovel-
Two Shovels enter, one Shovel leaves. To get the
Golden Shovel, you'll need two normal Shovels. Dig a
hole sometime before midnight, bury the second Shovel,
and the next day after 6:00 a.m. it can be dug up as a
Golden Shovel. Like the Silver Shovel, it will never
break, and can be used to plant Bell Trees (see the
Secrets section below).


=Net=

While the Net isn't the most useful tool in
the game, its only function being to catch bugs,
it just might someday save you from a mosquite bite
or bee sting. For more on catching bugs, see the Bug
List sub-section of The Museum.

 -Silver Net-
Once Nook's has upgraded (see the Nook's section
below), every so often he will stock a silver tool.
Slightly larger than the normal Net and made of sleek
silver thread, it slices through the air more quietly,
making it easier to catch bugs.

 -Golden Net-
Once you've caught every species of bug that
appears in your town (there are sixty-four), Mayor
Tortimer will reward you with the Golden Net. Made
of finely woven gold thread and much bigger than
the normal Net, if a bug escapes while you're
using this tool, it's completely your fault.


=Watering Can=

Perhaps the most under-appreciated of the
conventional tools, Watering Cans are used
to water flowers and Red Turnips. Only the
most dedicated gardeners (myself included)
see fit to keep them on hand.

 -Silver Watering Can-
Once you've bought fifty bags of seeds from
Nook's, you'll receive a thank you note in the mail
from Posy Farms, the distributors of the seeds you've
been buying. Attached is a package containing the Silver
Watering Can, which has a larger spout to ensure that
those "flowers wilting due to poor aim" incidents are
a thing of the past. It is also able to revive Red
Turnips that have wilted.

 -Golden Watering Can-
For most people, reaching "Perfect Town" status
is a goal they're unwilling to even try to reach,
and maintaining it for sixteen days is just ludicrous.
However, if you DO manage to do it, you'll be rewarded
with the gardener's ultimate trophy; the Golden Watering
Can. With a spout designed to cover an entire plant with
water and the ability to turn wilted Black Roses into
Golden Roses, there is no greater indication of a
dedicated Animal Crossing player.


=Axe=

Axes just may be the most prized tools in the
game, as the more you use them, the more damaged
they get. After just a few trees, they will break,
leaving you without an axe. Not to mention that you
need them more than ever at the beginning of the
game, and Nook's Cranny has very little chance
of stocking them.

 -Silver & Golden Axes-
Once you've had a fountain built in your town (see
the Town Hall section), you'll be able to throw items
into it for good luck. If you throw in an Axe, you will
be visited by Serena, the Goddess of Tranquility. Answer
her questions honestly and compliment her, and if she's in
a good mood, she'll reward you with either a Silver Axe or
a Golden Axe. Both are unbreakable, and the Golden Axe cuts
trees down slightly faster. Contrary to reports, it does
not chop trees down with a single hit.


=Slingshot=

Allowing you to launch pebbles into the sky, the
Slingshot's applications are somewhat limited. If you
see a floating balloon gift or hear the wind blowing,
or even see a flying saucer, ready your Slingshot
for action. Nook's Cranny has very little chance
of stocking a Slingshot.

 -Silver Slingshot-
Once Nook's has upgraded (see the Nook's section
below), every so often he will stock a silver tool.
The Silver Slingshot is able to launch two pebbles
at once, making it easier to hit your target.

 -Golden Slingshot-
Sometime after you've shot down eight balloons,
a package held by three golden balloons will appear,
holding the Golden Slingshot. As it is able to fire
three pebbles in a single shot, you barely even
have to aim.


=Timer=

Sold at Nook's for 500 Bells, the Timer does
just what you would expect it to- it times you.
While you can use it as a reminder when you only
want to play for a short amount of time, its main
use is to time fishing and bug-catching tournaments
with friends over wifi. It even keeps track of how
many bugs and fish everyone you have over catch
while it's running!


=Shopping Card=

While not technically a tool, the Shopping
Card is still worth mentioning in this secton.
It can reportedly only be used at GracieGrace and
the Auction House in the city, which are known to
carry items that cost more than your wallet holds.
Your Shopping Card will arrive in the mail once
you've deposited 10,000 Bells into your bank
account (see the Town Hall section).

 -Gold Card-
Once you've deposited one million Bells
into your bank account, you'll be promoted
to VIP status, and will receive the Gold Card
in the mail. It serves the same function as the
normal Shopping Card, but gives you a discount
at GracieGrace.



========================




   The Daily Grind +TDG
=========================

=Shake It!=

Every day at 6:00 a.m., the oak trees in your town
will take on Bells, furniture, or bee hives, which you
can find by shaking them. The ratio of furniture to bees
is determined by your hidden luck stat, which you can alter
by Feng Shui'ing your house, displaying Lucky items, wearing
a Four-leaf Clover, and getting a good fortune from Katrina.

Every three days, fruit trees will produce fruit, which
can be harvested by shaking the trees they're growing on.
See the "Plant It!" sub-section below for more information.


=Dig It!=

Every day at 6:00 a.m., randomly-placed "dig spots" may
appear in your town. Unlike in Animal Crossing: Wild World,
there is not a pre-determined number of fossils hidden in the
ground; instead, there is a random number of fossils and/or
Gyroids beneath the cracked dirt of your town. On some days,
no dig spots may appear at all. It is currently unknown if
this is affected by luck or any other factors.

Gyroids are clay dolls that sing and dance when placed
in your house. They are based haniwa, Japanese dolls that
were buried with the dead in ancient times. Try not to
think about it too much.

Fossils must be identified at the Museum before anything
can be done with them, and can either be donated to the
Museum or sold to Nook, usually for a high price. For a
full list of fossils, see the Museum section.


=Plant It!=

Every day at 6:00 a.m., flowers will appear in random
places in your town. The number of flowers that appear
varies by season, but the exact number is not currently
known. I intend to write a full guide to growing hybrid
flowers in the next update.

Fruit trees can be grown by burying fruit in the ground,
and will bear fruit upon reaching maturity. After being
harvested, a tree needs three days to grow more fruit, at
which point it can be harvested again. Apple, Orange, Pear,
Cherry, and Peach trees all produce three fruits, which are
edible. Eating fruit has no known effect. Coconut Palm trees,
which only grow directly above (not on) the beach, produce
two fruits, which are not edible.

The fruit growing in your town when you first move in,
known as your native fruit, can be sold for one hundred
Bells at Nooks, while all other fruits can be sold for
five hundred. Coconuts will never be your native fruit,
so can always be sold for the higher price. To get a few
pieces of foreign fruit without visiting someone else's
town, send a letter with only one line of text to one of
your neighbors with any kind of present attached. Every
so often, a Coconut will wash up on your beach.


=Booker and the Bin=

Okay, enough with the "Shake It!" jokes. In your Town
Gate is a bulldog named Booker, one of two guards that
watch over your town. You should check with him every
day, as he can tell you when a Special Visitor has come
to your town. He also controls the Lost and Found, which
you can get free items from every so often. Similar to
the Lost and Found is the Recycling Bin in Town Hall, in
which you can find items thrown away by your neighbors.


=Magic Money Rock=

Every day at 6:00 a.m., one of the rocks in your town
will be assigned as the Money Rock. Basically, if you hit
it with a shovel, a 100 Bell coin will pop out, and a timer
will start. Continue to hit it, and Bells will continue to
pop out, in greater increments. After the first hit, you
will only have a few seconds to strike until it reverts
back to a normal rock.

The knock-back from hitting the rock will push you back
far enough that you won't be able to reach it after three
hits, so dig a hole or two behind you to brace yourself.
The Silver Shovel is rumored to have a 10% chance of
increasing the number of Bells you get.


=Gifts From Above=

At random times throughout the day, packages
tied to balloons will float through your town.
They seem to appear on the sixth minute, such
as at 5:36 or 12:26.

To get the package, position yourself under the
balloon and use your Slingshot to shoot it down.
The color of the balloon determines what will
be inside.

Red - ???
Blue - ???
Yellow - Mario Series Item
Green - ???
Purple - ???
Orange - ???
Pink - ???
Light Blue - ???

Sometime after you've shot down eight balloons,
a package held by three gold balloons will appear,
holding the Golden Slingshot, which can launch
three pebbles at once.


=Pete=

Every day at 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., you can find
Pete the mailman somewhere in your town, preparing
for the day's deliveries. It is currently unknown
whether you can interact with him in a beneficial
way, of if he's just there to remind you to take
your outgoing mail to the post office.


=========================




   Your House +YH
====================

Your house is your castle... or your pyramid, pirate
ship, or whatever you want it to be! You can decorate
your house however you want, despite how hard it is to
imagine at its starting size. Carpet and wallpaper can be
spread on the floor and walls, respectively, and patterns
can be applied to either. After placing a piece of furniture
in your house, it can be moved by holding the (A) button
while facing it and moving with either the control stick
or the D-pad.

The attic of your house holds a bed, which can be
used to save, and a phone, from which you can access
the options menu. In front of the house is your mailbox,
to which all mail and items ordered from your catalog
are delivered.


 Expansions
============

 -Tiny House-
The main room of your default house is a 4x4
grid, for sixteen total spaces in which you can
place furniture. It comes with a cardboard box,
a tape deck, and a small light source. Before
you can expand your house, you must pay off
a 19,800 Bell debt at one of the Automatic
Bell Dispensers.


 -Average House-
The main room of your average-sized house is
a 6x6 grid, which gives you thirty-six spots
to decorate however you please. This house is
the same size as the houses of your neighbors.
Before you can expand your house, you have a
120,000 Bell debt to pay.


 -Large House-
The main room of your large house is an 8x8
grid, which you mathy types know makes for a
nice, open sixty-four-square for your interior
design pleasure. Before you can expand your
house yet again, you must, of course, pay
your 248,000 Bell debt.


 -Two Story House-
While your main room remains the same, you
get a whole new, 6x6 room to play with. This
new room has its own HRA score, so you are now
able to experiment with multiple themes at the
same time. As always, you have a debt to pay
before you can expand, this time coming in
at 368,000 Bells.


 -Three-Tiered House-
With the addition of an 8x8 basement, your
house is complete. Well, not quite complete.
You still have a 598,000 Bell debt to pay off,
the reward for which is a flag displayed on
your house. Whether it's worth it or not
is up to you.


 The Happy Room Academy
========================

The Happy Room Academy, or HRA, is a group
that breaks into your house while you're away
and issues you a score based on your interior
design. The better it matches, the more points
you'll receive. Below is a breakdown of how
your number of points is decided.

=Furniture Sets=

As the name would suggest, a furniture set
is a complete set of furniture. For example,
the Lovely Lamp, Lovely Chair, and Lovely Phone
are all parts of the Lovely Set. These items are
meant to go together, and will all share a common
word in their name. Lovely Set items all have the
word Lovely in them, Regal Set items all contain
the word Regal, etc. A set will usually have ten
items in it, along with a matching wallpaper and
a matching floor. Furniture set points will be
distributed thusly.

20,000 points for a room containing all ten items
25,000 for all ten items, with matching wallpaper OR floor
30,000 for all ten items, with matching wallpaper AND floor

Some smaller sets, such as bears, vases,
and dolls, will award one thousand points
when completed, and do not detract from
other sets you have on display.


=Furniture Themes=

Like furniture sets, these are items meant to
be displayed together. Unlike sets, furniture
themes do not have a common name applied to all
pieces. For example, the Western theme contains
the Tumbleweed and Camp Fire. Unlike sets, you
are not required to get every piece of theme
furniture to get a point bonus.

3,000 points for matching wallpaper and floor
3,000 points for each matching theme item


=Furniture Colors=

Coming soon!


=Feng Shui=

Coming soon!


=Lucky Items=

There are a number of items in the game
that are considered to be lucky. They are
all moderately rare, and when placed in your
house, will add 7,777 points to your HRA score
(though two of the same item will not double
this amount). Another benefit is that like
Feng Shui, they will increase your hidden
luck stat by a small amount. There are
twenty lucky items that I am aware of
at this time.

Arwing
Dracaena
Garden Gnome
Gold Trophy
Ivory Piano
Jack-in-the-box
Lefty Lucky Cat
Lovely Phone
Lucky Black Cat
Lucky Cat
Lucky Gold Cat
Master Sword
Music Box
Piggy Bank
Raccoon Figurine
Samurai Suit
Silver Trophy
Treasure Chest
Triforce
Washer/Dryer


I am currently seeking information on how
the Happy Room Academy score your rooms. If
you would like to contribute something, drop
me a line via the Contact Info section at the
bottom of this page.

   Nook's +$$$
=================

Tom Nook is the owner of the local general store, and
your landlord. The only way to earn any significant amount
of money is by selling things to him, which he presumably
goes on to sell for a higher price.


 Nook's Cranny
===============

Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.

Nook's Cranny is a crude shack, built from scrap
wood and sheet metal. Tom Nook used to hold a monopoly
on the wallets of the home improvement-minded denizens
of the village in which his store is located, but now
that they're able to take a bus to the city, home to
his rival Crazy Redd and fashion world superstar gone
fine furniture retailer Gracie, he's going to have to
step up his game to stay in the business.

Nook's Cranny has the capacity to stock the following.

3 tools*
2 pieces of furniture
1 carpet
1 wallpaper
1 type of stationary
1 bag of flower seeds
1 bag of medicine


 Nook 'n' Go
=============

Hours: 7:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m.

Between 128,000 Bells he was paid to expand
the house of one of the villagers and the 25,000
that has been spent in his store, Nook finds himself
with enough extra income to upgrade his store. A step
above the rickety shack he once operated from, Nook
has designed his new and improved shop to resemble
a typical convenience store.

   Able Sisters +ABL
========================

Mable and Sable, collectively known as the Able
Sisters, are a pair of porcupines that operate a
small tailor shop in the village. Every day, they
stock three shirts and an umbrella of their design,
as well as a hat and accessory. They also allow you
and your wifi friends to display up to eight patterns
in the center of the store, enabling you to trade or
sell them.

Unlike past games, you can edit patterns when and
wherever you want for free from your Designs screen.
Where this option used to be in the Able Sisters shop,
there is now the option to make a Pro Design, which is
a shirt template with the front, back, and sleeves each
set as an individual pattern, allowing for a far cleaner
and more professional look.

Another new addition to Able Sisters is the ability
to store your patterns, similar to how you store items
in a cabinet... or refrigerator, if that's your thing.
They will hold up to sixty-four of your designs, so
feel free to overwrite old ones whenever you want.

========================




   Town Hall +TH
===================

The Town Hall, usually located near your Town Gate, holds
some of your town's most vital functions; recycling, banking,
postal service, civic center, and the mayor's office. While you
can't normally interact with the mayor, the rest of Town Hall's
services may prove useful on a daily basis.


 -Recycling Bin-
If you want to get rid of something, such as rusted cans or
old boots, just take it to the Recycling Bin. Every so often,
you can find old furniture or clothing that your neighbors have
thrown out here. The Recycling Bin is emptied every Monday and
Thursday at 6:00 a.m.


 -Automatic Bell Dispenser-
Animal Crossing's version of an ATM, the ABD serves as your
bank. You can use it to access your bank account and withdraw
or deposit Bells, or to pay your mortgage. The Bank of Nintendo
will thank you for banking with them by sending you a gift when
you reach certain milestones of Bells deposited.

Shopping Card - 10,000 Bells saved
Box of Tissues - 100,000 Bells saved
Gold Card - 1,000,000 Bells saved
ABD in your house - 100,000,000 Bells saved (confirmation needed)


 -Post Office-
At the Post Office, which is the window on the right
in your Town Hall, you can send letters to your neigbors,
friends in other towns, the Wii Message Boards, emails, or
cell phones of friends, or even yourself! You also have the
option to store letters you've received. Stationary to
write letters on can be bought at Nook's.


=Civic Center=

At the town Civic Center, you can make changes that
have a direct impact on your town, though it will take
a little hard work on your part.

 -The Environment-
If you ask the receptionist about the environment,
she'll read you comments made by your neighbors about
the current environmental status of your town. Being..
well, animals, they like to have a lot of greenery, which
might means more trees than you're comfortable with. However,
if you're able to achieve and maintain the perfect balance,
you'll be awarded theholy grail of gardening; the Golden
Watering Can. For a full guide on this aspect of the
game, see ShadowTaz and AsteroidBlues25's Perfect
Town Guide on the previous page.

 -Town Tune-
Every time you speak to a character in your town,
your Town Tune will play. You can make this sixteen
note song whatever you want, and most people change
it several times to preserve their sanity. Below is
a URL leading to a list of around six hundred songs
that you can set as your Town Tune, hosted right
here on GameFAQs.

http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/gamecube/file/516502/19512

 -Town Fund-
Here, you are able to donate Bells to the Town
Fund, which goes into improving the town. You may
have noticed that the residents of your tiny village
aren't required to pay taxes; it isn't necessary, as
such a small town doesn't have roads or an education
system. The Bells for the upkeep of buildings, paying
public servants, and other such services are seemingly
funded solely by donations.

If you donate enough Bells to the fund to create
a surplus, it will be spent on one of the projects
that the mayor has been dreaming of. The results of
donating to the Town Fund, along with the number of
Bells you must have donated to reach it, are listed
below. (Note: The number shown is the total amount
you must have donated, NOT how much you must give
after the previous donation.)

Bridge           -   200,000 Bells
Fountain         -   700,000 Bells
Windmill*        -   1,700,000 Bells
Lighthouse*      -   1,700,000 Bells

Green Feather    -   100,000,000 Bells
Blue Feather     -   200,000,000 Bells
Yellow Feather   -   300,000,000 Bells
Red Feather      -   400,000,000 Bells
Purple Feather   -   500,000,000 Bells
White Feather    -   600,000,000 Bells
Rainbow Feather  -   700,000,000 Bells

*You must choose between the Windmill
and the Lighthouse. You can pick only
one, and can't change it later.

The feathers are hair accessories, and serve no
function other than as a kind of medal of honor.

 -Problems-
If you have somehow managed to find yourself in
a situation in which you're unable to get into your
house, or just want your main room emptied, let the
receptionist know that you've been locked out. She'll
call in a team to move everything in your main room to
the Recycling Bin. However, as it only holds ten items,
you'll lose any more that are removed from your house.

You can also report your neighbors for bad behavior;
being rude, sloppy, or showing you weird letters. This
is basically to 'reset' animals that have moved from
other towns, where the player may have given them an
inappropriate catchphrase, shirt design, or letter. 

===================




   The Museum +MUS
=====================

In your village is a fairly large museum, complete with art
gallery, paleontological exhibit hall, aquarium, observatory,
insect house, and even an attached cafe. Operated by Blathers,
the highly intelligent (if somewhat long-winded) curator and
Celeste, his younger sister, the museum is the pride of your
town. Or, it would be, if all of the exhibits weren't bare.

By some enormous oversight, the museum was built without
anything to be displayed within. However, as luck would have
it, the area you live in is home to more than one hundred and
twenty types of bugs and fish, and has a long history of rare
fossil discovery.

If you want your museum to prosper, you must resist the
urge to sell rare pieces to Nook and instead donate them
to the museum. You will receive nothing more than your own
satisfaction for your contributions, so whether or not to
donate is a decision that only you can make.


 Fish List
===========

In order to catch fish, you must first have a Fishing
Rod, which can be bought from Nook's shop. When you see a
fish-shaped shadow in the water, cast your line by either
pressing the (A) button, or by making a casting motion with
your Wii Remote. Once the fish has been caught on your hook,
your bobber will disappear under the water, and the area it
was last been seen in will begin splashing violently. Hold
the (A) button or pull back on your Wii Remote as soon as
the bobber goes under to land the fish. If you run near
them, fish will sense the vibration and hide at a
depth from which they can't be seen or caught.

 Bug List
==========

In order to catch bugs, you must first have a Net,
which can be bought from Nook's shop. Bugs are known
to appear everywhere, from flowers and trees to water
and under rocks, and sometimes even on your neighbors!
To catch them, press the (A) button or swing your Wii
Remote with the Net equipped while less than one space
away. If you run near them, bugs will run or fly away.

=Special Bug Locations=

To find bugs that hide under rocks,
hit the rocks with your shovel.

Some bugs can only be found around trash,
such as rotten turnips, fallen candy, and
water-logged boots, cans, and tires.

Dung Beetles can only be found when there's
snow on the ground, rolling around snowballs.

Fleas will sometimes infest your neighbors,
causing them to say things like "itchy" and
"itch-itch" instead of their catchphrase.

Mole Crickets will hide underground, making
a low croaking sound. You must find where the
croaking is coming from and dig them up before
you can catch them.

Moths appear around light sources when it's dark.

The Orchid Mantis can only be found on white flowers.

Peacocks are large dark-colored butterflies,
and will only appear around dark (black, blue,
purple) hybrid flowers.

Snails appear on flowers, but only when it's raining.

Tiger Butterflies can only be found
on and around red and pink flowers.

==========



 Fossil List
=============

Every day at 6:00 a.m., randomly-placed "dig spots" may
appear in your town. Unlike in Animal Crossing: Wild World,
there is not a pre-determined number of fossils hidden in the
ground; instead, there is a random number of fossils and/or
Gyroids beneath the cracked dirt of your town. On some days,
no dig spots may appear at all. It is currently unknown if
this is affected by luck or any other factors.

Once they've been dug up, fossils must be identified at
the museum before anything can be done with them, and can
either be donated to the museum or sold to Nook.

 Painting List
===============

Unlike other pieces you donate to the museum,
paintings must be bought from Crazy Redd in the
city, or, rarely, Nook's. There are twenty-three
places in the museum to display paintings, one of
which is roped off. This is probably reserved for
the Famous Painting. (Confirmation needed)

as well as prices. If you have this information,
let me know through the Contact Info section at
the bottom of this page.


 The Roost
===========

The Roost is a small cafe within the museum
managed by Brewster, a coffee aficionado who
once owned a small shop in the city. He sells
his simple roasted arabica coffee for 200 Bells
per cup. On Saturday nights, a traveling musician
known as K.K. Slider will play his guitar and
sing on The Roost's small stage.

If you consistently drink your coffee at what
Brewster considers to be the optimal temperature
and talk to him over the counter afterward, he will
start offering to mix pigeon milk into your coffee.
After befriending him, if you talk to him with a
Gyroid in your inventory, he will tell you that
he collects them, and will allow you to store
one of each kind in The Roost's back room.

=====================




   Town Gate +TG
===================

The Town Gate, located in the center of the
northern rock wall of your town, is the only
land route in and out of your town. Talking to
Copper, the guard inside, will allow you to pay
a visit to other towns, or allow people to visit
yours. The other guard, Booker, keeps track of
everyone who enters your town, and any major
events that occur. Both will explain their
services to you if asked.


=Copper=

 -Visiting Others-
When this option is selected, Copper will
give you two choices; Nintendo WiFi Connection,
or DS Suitcase. The former will allow you to go to
the town of someone you've traded Friend Codes with
over Nintendo's online service, while the latter is
a bit more complicated. The DS Suitcase option will
allow you to store your character on a Nintendo DS,
then temporarily transfer it to a friend's Wii.


 -Open the Gates-
While your gates are opened, anyone you have
exchanged Friend Codes with can enter and leave
your town freely. Anyone that visits your town will
be able to do everything you're able to outside of
your house, so be cautious of vandals. Up to four
people can occupy a town at any given time. 


 -Friend Code-
The first time you select this option, Copper
will issue a unique twelve-digit Friend Code to
you. Afterward, he will remind what it is; you can
also find your Friend Code in your friend roster.


=Booker=

 -What's new?-
Booker notes everyone who enters and leaves
your town through the gate, so it's always a
good idea to check with him whether you have
any special visitors in your town.


 -Lost and Found-
An item end up in the lost and found when
someone needs to use space on the ground, and
the item is there. This can occur when Nook's
shop or your house is upgraded, when a holiday
display is erected in front of Town Hall, when
an animal moves in, or when a new feature such
as the fountain, lighthouse, or windmill is
built.


 -Change flag-
With this option, you can change the town flag,
displayed to the right of the gate, with any pattern
on your Design screen. The default flag is a picture
of an oak tree.

===================




   The City +CTY
===================

The city is a large area outside of your town, which
you can reach by taking the bus from the bus stop in
front of your Town Gate. Mainly a shopping complex, it
contains several Special Visitors from previous games,
who have now opened shop. For more information on the
city, see my City FAQ on the previous page.

===================




   Your Neighbors +YN
========================

Coming soon!

I am currently seeking information on what
all of the personality types are, and what
the traits of such characters are.

   Special Visitors +SV
==========================

 K.K. Slider
=============

Totakeke, also known as K.K. Slider, is a
musician that travels around the country playing
his guitar for anyone who will listen. He appears
in The Roost, the cafe in your museum, on Saturday
nights from 8:00 p.m. to midnight. You can either
request one of his songs by name, let him pick one
based on your mood, or let him play one of his choice.
He will give you a free copy of the song to play on
the stereo in your house once the show is over.

Please note that when requesting a song, the
song names must be typed in exactly as they're
shown below for him to play them. Exceptions to
this are Cafe K.K., which must have an acute mark
over the e, K.K. Etude, which must have an acute
mark over the capital E, and Senor K.K., which
must have a tilde over the n. These special
characters can be found under the 'more'
tab on your keyboard.


=K.K. Standard Set=

once per week.

and wander your town every Sunday from 6:00 a.m. to
noon. She sells white turnips in bushels of ten, usually
for under one hundred Bells, which you can go on to sell
to Nook. Nook buys turnips at different prices every day,
so wait until he's offering more than you paid for them to
sell. Don't wait too long, though, as turnips will spoil
after one week. The best way to sell turnips is by finding
someone on the message board here on GameFAQs or GameSpot
whose Nook's is buying them at a high price.

Joan also sells red turnip seeds, which you must
plant and take care of yourself. The better care you
give it, the more your red turnip will grow, and the
more Nook will pay for it. It is currently unknown if
red turnips are involved in a trading sequence, as they
were in Animal Crossing: Wild World. If you have any
information on this, please let me know through the
Contact Info section at the bottom of this page.

can get from your neighbors while she's in town. To
get an exclusive Sahara wall or carpet, you must
give her three old ones to recycle.

 Wendell
=========

Wendell is a traveling artist who is so dedicated
to his work that he sometimes forgets to eat, often
resulting in him finding himself in unfamiliar towns,
hungry and penniless. If you give him something to eat,
he will thank you with one of his many expertly-crafted
patterns. The pattern he gives you is determined by what
you feed him; fish will get you a pattern meant to be
displayed on the ground, while fruit, mushrooms and
candy will be met with patterns meant to be edited.

I am currently seeking information on Wendell's
patterns. If you have anything you would like to
submit, see the Contact Info secton at the
bottom of this page.


 Pascal
========

A wandering beach bum, Pascal will occasionally
appear next to the rivers of your town, offering you
his own brand of unconventional wisdom before divng
into the water and drifting out to sea. If you have
a Scallop in your inventory when you talk to him, he
will trade you a rare piece of furniture from the
Pirate Set for it.

 -Pirate Set- (incomplete)
Anchor
Barrel
Helm
Keg
Ship Cannon
Ship Compass

I am currently seeking information on the Pirate
Set as is appears in City Folk. If you have anything
you would like to submit, see the Contact Info secton
at the bottom of this page.


 Wisp
======

At 6:00 a.m. on a random day, an Empty Lamp
will appear somewhere in your town. Whether or
not you pick it up, that same day after 9:00 p.m.,
if you venture down to the beach, a mysterious voice
will call out to you. Follow it until you find Wisp, the
Spirit of the Lamp. Bring him the lamp, and he'll tell
you that he isn't comfortable being out in the open;
go to your attic and rub the lamp to summon him and
continue the encounter.

As thanks for finding his lamp, he'll offer you
his services- he can pick all of the weeds in your
town, smash all of the roaches in your house (they
appear as a consequence of not playing for a while),
or give you an item. The items he offers are furniture,
hats, accessories, and clothes. I don't currently know
whether there are any items you get exclusively from
Wisp, or if you can get it all at Nook's and Able
Sisters. If you have any relevant information on
this, please, let me know through the Contact
Info section at the bottom of this page.


 Gulliver
==========

A former sailor, Gulliver used to get thrown off of
the ship he manned while it was out at sea fairly often
by his fellow crew members for his annoying ways. Growing
tired of this abuse, he built a flying saucer to continue
his exploration of the world, making sure to pick up a few
souvenirs everywhere he went. He will appear in your town
on a random day that you have no other Special Visitors,
flying east to west then a second pass west to east.

If you shoot his saucer with your slingshot, a gear
will pop out and fall somewhere in your town, causing
the saucer's flight to become unstable. It will quickly
lose altitude, but will make it out of your town. The
next day, it will wash ashore on your beach, showing
signs of heavy damage. Return the gear to Gulliver,
and he will reward you with one of the rare items
he's picked up in his travels. You won't find
these items anywhere else.


 -Gulliver's Items-
Arc de Triomphe
Chocolates
Compass
Manneken Pis
Matryoshka
Merlion
Mermaid statue
Metroid
Moai statue
Mouth of Truth
Pagoda
Plate armor
Tower of Pisa
Tribal mask 


 Katie and Kaitlin
===================

On a random day after playing with a friend
over wifi, Katie or Kaitlin may appear in your
town. This mother and child pair was separated when
Katie wandered back through the open gate. To reunite
them, you must contact the person you know who lives in
the town they think the other is in, then have the one
who has Katie bring her to the town of the one that
has Kaitlin. The next time the mail runs, you will
get a letter of thanks with one of Nook's rare
Spotlite Items attached. The item they give
you will be one of the following.

Apple TV
Lily-Pad Table
Lovely Phone
Music Box
Papa Bear
Papa Panda

Katie or Kaitlin will remain in your town until
you reunite them or remove the other party involved
from your Friend List.


 Blanca
========

Blanca is a pure white cat with a blank slate
for a face, who will wander into your town on a
random day after wifi play. When you talk to her,
you will see the face that someone on your friend
list gave her, and will be given the chance to
draw your own. Blanca serves no real purpose,
other than acting as a dry erase board that
constantly changes hands.

   Secrets +SEC
==================

=Magic Money Rock=

Every day at 6:00 a.m., one of the rocks in your town
will be assigned as the Money Rock. Basically, if you hit
it with a shovel, a 100 Bell coin will pop out, and a timer
will start. Continue to hit it, and Bells will continue to
pop out, in greater increments. After the first hit, you
will only have a few seconds to strike until it reverts
back to a normal rock.

The knock-back from hitting the rock will push you back
far enough that you won't be able to reach it after three
hits, so dig a hole or two behind you to brace yourself.
The Silver Shovel is rumored to have a 10% chance of
increasing the number of Bells you get.


=Silver and Golden Tools=

All of the handheld tools have enhanced versions,
which are significant improvements on the original.
See the "Tools of the Trade" sub-section under Your
New Life for more information.


=Money Trees=

Once you have the Golden Shovel, you'll be able
to plant Bells the way you would fruit. Just dig
a hole, bury some Bells, and in a few days you may
have a tree bearing three bags of Bells, each one
equivalent to the single one you buried, with a
cap of thirty thousand. Remember, this will
only work with the Golden Shovel. 

Every one thousand Bells in the bag you bury
will increase the odds of your tree bearing fruit
by one percent. If you bury 50,000 Bells, your tree
will have a fifty percent chance of returning three
bags each containing 30,000 Bells.
