    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

    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

    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.
    
    Nook 'n' Go has the capacity to stock the following.
    
    3 tools
    3 pieces of furniture
    2 types of stationary
    2 bags of flower seeds
    1 sapling
    1 carpet
    1 wallpaper
    1 can of paint
    1 bag of medicine
    
    
     Nookway
    =========
    
    Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
    
    With another 90,000 Bells in the bank from his
    loyal customers, Nook again decides to remodel
    the shop, basing the new design on the ever-popular
    super market, complete with some rather superfluous
    shopping carts.
    
    Nookway has the capacity to stock the following.
    
    4 tools
    4 bags of flower seeds
    2 saplings
    2 wallpapers
    2 carpets
    5 pieces of furniture
    1 can of paint
    4 types of stationary
    1 bag of medicine
    
    
     Nookington's
    ==============
    
    Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
    
    The investment in a larger store having
    paid off more than he can imagine, Nook
    has managed to rake in 140,000 Bells, and
    can finally realize his dream; his own two-
    story luxury department store, so large that
    he is forced to employ Timmy and Tommy, his
    squeaky-voiced nephews.
    
    Nookington's has the capacity to stock the following.
    
    6 tools
    7 bags of flower seeds
    3 saplings
    4 types of stationary
    1 bag of medicine
    8 pieces of furniture
    3 wallpapers
    3 carpets
    1 can of paint
    
    
     Nook's Point-Tracking System
    ==============================
    
    Coming soon! (no information required)
    
    
    *In Nook's Cranny, it is rare to see
    an Axe, Slingshot, or Timer for sale.
    
    =================
    
    
    
    
       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)

     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.

       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=
    
    When you let K.K. choose a song for you, he
    will play one of the songs on this list. Next
    to each song is the mood it will be played under.

    K.K. will only play the following songs if

     Joan
    ======
    
    Joan is an old turnip peddler that will show up
    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.

     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)

    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.

    mushrooms will appear next to the trees in your

    from the Mush Set, though it will appear to be just
    another mushroom before you pick it up. The rarest
    kind of mushroom, the aptly-named Rare Mushroom,
    grows underground. Mushrooms can be eaten, fed
    to Wendell (see Special Visitors section), or
    sold to Nook's.

       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.
