How do you get villagers to suggest more Public Works Projects?

  1. I'm having trouble with the game because my villagers don't seem to be suggesting any new projects. I have built over 15 projects yet they aren't giving me any suggestion. Help out plez. I really want to get the cool projects but they don't seem to suggest anything. They don't run up to me saying OH I HAVE AN IDEA!
    Plez can you give me some ideas as tp why they are doing this. I really appreciate it.

  1. Alright, so there's an amazing trick known as the "diving trick".
    First, you will need to get yourself a wet suit. These can be obtained from the Island at random times.
    Secondly, you must get yourself a Timer. This isn't necessary but it helps a lot. The Timer can be bought from a Nooking store that is T&T Mart or higher.
    Set the Timer to 5 minutes, and jump into the water. Swim as far out as you can, and wait until the timer stops. After that, go back to shore and find a villager. If done correctly, they should ping you.
    Remember that the ping might not always be a PWP. Sometimes it's something like "I need a new catchphrase" or "I need a new greeting" or something similar to that.
    The PWP projects given depend on the villager personality. Let's say you want the Bus Stop. The Bus Stop can be requested by Uchi villagers, like Katt, Cherry, Pashmina, etc.
    The Police Station can happen on any village. My first town got it from Carmen, a Peppy villager. My new town got it from Rodney, a Smug villager.
    It can be a bit annoying but it's worth it for some cool PWPs.

  1. I'm in the same boat as you, for the most part - the only advice I can give is to head down to a secluded part of your beach, leave the 3DS for 10-15 minutes, and come back, walking past villagers. This tends to trigger the little gasp from one of them, but there is no guarantee that it will be a project. It's completely random.

  2. You also have a different fortune every day, if you can get the Katrina mansion or the lovely phone from the August fireworks cookies, you can check your fortune every day, and figure out certain items to bring out your good fortune. Certain fortunes give increased relationships (either with same sex or opposite sex villagers) and increased special conservations, in which they walk up to you which includes talks about Public Works Projects. Otherwise, try to increase your relationships with people by helping them out, talking to them, and mailing them.

  3. 1- Trap all villagers with your shovel (so you can know where they're).
    2- Leave all your items at home (you can still have tools).
    3- Have 0 bells.
    4- Go swimming and leave your 3DS open. Jellyfish will constantly sting you.
    5- Wait for 5-6 minutes. If you leave the 3DS at 12:34, wait till 12:40 and so.
    6- Run in front of every neighbour. Only one will do the "Hey, Listen" thing.

    After an hour or so, they'll not make the "Hey" thing. You'll need to talk to one of them, who will tell you the "You need to rest".

    Repeat as many times as neccesary. Good luck.

  4. Cranky villagers seem to request more public works projects, so make sure you have a few in your town. They can be recognized by their deep voice.
