News – Exciting Things Are Coming…

Meadow will be going under a lot of construction towards the end of the year so hopefully Meadow’s official dream code will be published by the start of 2019, I am aiming to get rid of my “love/hate” relationship that I have with Meadow. Since I created Ivory and Serenity I sorta abandoned Meadow but I want to get Meadow in a nicer state, redecorate the town (as it’s still in a halloween 2016 theme lol) and update the town regularly.

Ivory’s dream address is published but I haven’t completed Ivory meet either, it should be updated to a cleaner version in early 2019. And hopefully Serenity’s dream address should be published within this month.

Exciting things are coming, I can’t wait to post these dream updates and start working properly on Meadow and posting more regularly on my blogs.

News – Sister Blogs

If you’ve been reading my blog recently you probably noticed that on my last post that I posted that I actually have two more towns called Ivory & Serenity & I also have backstories behind them just like Meadow did once upon a time. You can find them here.

If you look at the two pages for Ivory and Serenity then you will discover that there are two sister blogs I created alternatively for this blog, I wanted to only post about Meadow, my main town on this blog whereas on those two blogs I will be talking about my sister towns – Ivory & Serenity. I have created Serenity’s blog but I haven’t created Ivory’s yet *wip as of september 2018* but hopefully it’ll be up shortly so keep checking on the pages every now and then!

I hope you’ll enjoy reading about my other towns as a alternative from Meadow, I will be still posting on this blog as Meadow is far from finished but I sincerely hope you enjoy the hard work I’ve put into these two towns!

Also, enclosed below is my first attempt of a GIF, it’s far from perfect but at least you can see a sneak peak of Serenity’s windmill alongside the stars & moon which, fyi, is what Eclipse is loosely based on. Enjoy!

News – Onto The Next Project!

As you guys may or may not know I own two spare Animal Crossing: New Leaf game cartridges (three cartridges if you include my main one – Mayor Kiki of Meadow) so I have two towns that you can actually explore via the dream suite if you’d like to see what I’ve also been working on since I’ve been on a hiatus from blogging!

Ivory – Hacked Town

Ivory is a forest town which is a quiet village which resides with mostly cat villagers. Here the ground is mostly crispy, the weather is a relaxing downfall of rain. Ivory is covered in exotic green nature which plagues the town deeply as the whole town is littered in many trees and varies of plants such as Jacob Ladders, Clovers, etc. Be careful where you walk whilst exploring Ivory as there are some fairy circles hidden in the village!

About The Mayor/Residents

Mayor Fern has purple hair to match her outfit which she loves as she feels it matches her personality. Fern is a very quiet Mayor and she lives in the heart of Ivory, in the middle of the woodland village. Fern resides in a woodland cottage which smells like fresh lumber and perfect apple pie. Fern’s house is perfect to cuddle up and read a book in front of the fireplace as it’s interior is very relaxing and you’d feel drowsy as if a lullaby had just swept you off your feet, feel free to kick up your feet and relax as Fern’s if this made you imagination run wild.

Lily is a human resident who moved into Ivory shortly after Fern became the mayor and made Ivory into the famous woodland village it is now. She also is somewhat like Fern as she is very quiet and as like Fern, keeps herself to herself. She does like to go and spend time with her local animal neighbours and occasionally spend some time reading books with Mayor Fern whilst sitting in front of the warm cozy fireplace whilst eating perfect apple pie and breathing in the smell of fresh lumber from the firewood next to the fireplace that Fern prepared earlier on each day.

Ivory Backstory

Ivory was a isolated village until Fern adopted the town and enforced nature to spread it’s natural beauty which attracted tourists which adore it’s natural beauty. Fern is 18 years old and is the mayor. She adores natural beauty so most of her furniture is from fresh lumber she built herself and collects firewood herself from spare wood she used to collect to build her furniture with. Fern recycles whatever she can to keep to Ivory’s natural beauty to remain Ivory eco friendly so you will see Fern hanging out a lot near Retail to recycle her used items in exchange to recycle something else. Lily moved to Ivory shortly after Fern became the mayor and met everyone however she keeps herself to herself and is rarely seen leaving her house as she is an introvert.

Ivory is the latin word for the tusks of an elephant as the nature here is as strong as elephant tusks which brings tourists and attraction to the village, it also brings the residents together.

Serenity

Serenity is a town based of peace and is the hometown of the star and moon residents. The queen and king are the gods of the moon and stars in this kingdom, the kingdom is truly stunning during sunset, nightfall and dawn. There is many secrets hidden in this village and there’s a surprise at every corner.

About the Mayor/Residents

(Mayor) Queen Eclipse is the goddess of the moon, the mother of Estella and also the widow of King Màni, she has navy blue hair to express the night sky, she resides in her main castle in the heart of the kingdom where Màni resided with her until his unfortunate sudden death. Her daughter is 18 years old and lives in a separate castle not far from where Eclipse herself lives, she is currently resigning her duty of ruling the kingdom and entrusting it to her daughter if she chooses to marry prince Orion who has recently proposed to Estella. Queen Eclipse has a very close relationship with her daughter as they became much closer following her late husband’s death which left Eclipse traumatised thinking her daughter could be next even though her late husband’s death is currently unknown.

King Màni was the god of the moon, the father of Estella and the late husband of Queen Eclipse whom is now widowed following his death. He was said to have an unbreakable bond with his wife and his daughter until his unfortunate mysterious death which left the kingdom in a deep depression on his funeral burial and since the news broke out as he was loved and adored by many. Will his family ever find out whatever happened to cause his sudden death?

Princess Estella is the daughter of Queen Eclipse and King Màni who are both gods of the moon and stars which also makes her a goddess. She is next in line for the throne as her mother is wishing to resign from her ruling duties since her late husband’s death which has caused her to want to hide away but only if she marries prince Orion she will become queen to overshadow her parent’s footsteps. She’s left her engagement in her bedroom in the box so will she say yes or will she refuse to overtake the throne?

Serenity Backstory

Serenity is a popular village based on the gods of the moon and the stars, the rulers are currently Queen Eclipse and was also King Màni until his sudden recent death. Their daughter is next in line for the throne but only if she marries prince Orion. Since the king’s death the kingdom fell into depression as the village grieved the king’s death which hit Queen Eclipse hard. Due to this, the queen wishes to resign and make her daughter, Estella rule with prince Orion if they get married. This puts pressure on Estella, making her feel like she has she to say yes to please her mother and the village. Will she say yes to make her mother and her father proud or will she refuse?

 

WiFi – An Eventful WiFi with Liam

Since Liam has started playing AC:NL we have been WiFing a lot with each other. I created his town pathways, his flag and I bought him GracieGracie outfits, we went to the islands to catch rare fish together and we played my favourite minigame together – the firefly catching tour!

Since Liam’s town is in summer and mine is in spring 2016 (My town was frozen whilst I was on my hiatus to prevent any villagers moving away) I can finally catch up on my summer encyclopedia that he’s almost finished for summer. I managed to nab 10 Dorados, a few guppies, 3 piranhas and several other fish however I never managed to find a Arowana which I really need for my summer fish collection.

When Liam came to my town, it was throwing down heavy rain (not pictured below) and we managed to catch a bunch of Coelacanths! Liam caught his first ever but because I was sat next to him I accidentally pressed ‘let go’ and it went back in the ocean, however five minutes later we saw another one! When he went back to his town it was late night and he managed to find a scorpain and a tarantula too. He caught both of the creepy crawlies *shudder* Well done Liam!

The slideshow was screenshots from a while back but this was Liam’s first ever firework show and he enjoyed it and there are a few screenshots of my town even though it was a little messy when he came over haha.

News – Catching the Coelacanth & Other Important Mentions!

finally managed to get my paws hands on the coelacanth whilst WiFing with Liam in my town. Rod was in boxes and Liam recalled that he had Rod in his AC:CF (Or Lets go to the city if you live in the UK) and that he liked Rod so I let him adopt Rod. It was raining in my town and I thought to myself it’d be cool if we went fishing together as it was after 4pm as I knew there would be a chance that the coelacanth spawned in at 4pm; so we headed down to my beach and I saw a huge fish shadow. My thoughts were “Oh it’s just a sea-bass” but when I reeled the fish in it was my first ever Coelacanth! I literally sceamed “OH MY GOSH!”, I was so stunned I couldn’t believe that the first fish I had caught just minutes after the time turned 4pm I caught a Coelacanth.

I can’t believe I actually caught it, I’m so happy. Sorry if I’m over-exaggerating but I’m so so happy and glad that I’ve finally caught this super-duper rare fish!


Yesterday I unlocked my 2nd to last badge which was the balloon popping badge, I should of unlocked this badge ages ago but I am very very lazy when it comes to balloons and I personally hate the balloon furniture; I think it really ugly and I’ve never had any interest in collecting it so I never bothered with popping balloons if they only thing you get from them is either balloon furniture or a silver/golden slingshot.

I now only have one badge left which is the letters badge that I never really bothered with either as I never really used the letters feature but looks like I’m gonna try and use that feature more to get my last badge!

A little Catch Up In Meadow

Since my last blog post I have unlocked a new badge and got silver on two badges. I unlocked the turnip badge (stalk market) and silver for the turnip badge too. I got the turnip badge by selling over 10 thousand turnips or something like that. I almost made 5 million bells profit by selling my turnips to my boyfriend’s town of MayFall as his turnip price was 480 bells per turnip. I was so shocked I’ve never ever made money from the stalk market before because my retail turnip prices never go above 200 bells which really sucks. I also got a silver badge for my streetpass as I recently streetpassed with Liam which managed to get me to a silver badge, so thanks Liam!

*If you don’t know what streetpass is it’s basically where you 3DS/2DS is in sleep mode and you walk past another person who’s 3DS/2DS is also in sleep mode. If you streetpass with other ACNL players then you can obtain special items that you cannot obtain throughout the game like ordering them from Timmy and Tommy. If you streetpass with other players then you can obtain balloons, tweeters, ice cream and more cool stuff.

I also want to point out some also cool things that people may not already know…

  • If you have the Modern Clock PWP in your town, you may not already know what it’s function actually is. When an hour has passed (when your town tune plays) the modern clock actually turns into a rainbow hologram in the empty part of the clock. It’s actually really pretty.

  • In the welcome amiibo update, Nintendo added a feature where you can use items whilst sitting down now and you can now sit down on rocks. I think it’s rather realistic features and it’s pretty useful. The rock feature is a pretty sweet easter egg to discover too! (I decided to use Deena’s piano in this case because I always wanted Nintendo to add this feature in for some strange reason…)

  • When Nintendo added the welcome amiibo update, they constructed a campground to your town’s cliff. If you enter there, sometimes Harvey is feeding the birds, if you say “Hey Harv” to him then he’ll give you the item he’s using which is actually called “Beans” – which was only obtainable from Japan (Harvey only feeds the birds when it’s not raining*) Also in the campground at night you can do a campground dance if you press in front of the camp fire. You can also preform a movement where it looks like you’re warming your hands up in front of the fire which is also a cute feature Nintendo also added in.

Recently on ACC I managed to find a thread where you are able to obtain any ACNL villager you want for a price of 500k bells (which may be a bit pricey/ you cannot order Sanrio villagers like Holden and Chai as you are unable to adopt them). You can find the thread here. Due to that thread from ACC, I managed to obtain a lot of my dreamies such as Diana the snooty dear (pictured below). I also managed to obtain Cookie, Merengue and others. I plan on getting Chrissy hopefully next as I am trying to get Willow to move as I want Chrissy next to Francine.

Information – The Ram Editor & How To Hack?

The Ram Editor is a tool that any ACNL player can use by using Homebrew to hack their save files on ACNL to hack their game. I, personally, do NOT hack ACNL but I have got Homebrew installed in my spare 3DS as I may want to hack ACNL in the future. The ram editor can be used to;

  • Edit the town, such as the town name, mayor’s name, edit the acres/rivers/beaches/waterfalls and ponds.
  • Move buildings, rocks, and houses.
  • Change the town hall and train station colours.
  • Edit character’s names, gender, TPC, faces, inventory and rooms.
  • Edit your villagers such as the campsite (RV) and swap the villagers such as if I had Vesta and if I really wanted Chrissy you just swap them two villagers together.
  • You can do other cool things too such as get a tan in winter, put both police stations in your town, place the tree from the plaza anywhere, get all perfect trees in your town, change the grass type and even so much more like editing the island!

Before using the ram editor you should always create a back up of your save file just in case something goes wrong! You should also follow the instructions and FAQ when using the ram editor otherwise you may risk loosing your whole entire game.

It’s also important to mention that you may be banned from online features if you change the TPC picture or edit the island when using online features, so bare in mind when using club Tortimer and etc that players don’t report you.

To hack your ACNL, you’ll need the following requirements.

  1. (NEW/OLD) Nintendo 3DS/XL or a Nintendo 2DS
  2. Retail or downloadable version of ACNL (without WA update is fine too)
  3. Internet browser such as chrome, firefox, etc.
  4. Your 3DS needs to be at a certain update like 9.x or 10.x – pay close attention to when the ram editor or when Homebrew & Soundhax change their website as they make new updates to patch what Nintendo try to keep patching.

You’ll need to install the Homebrew launcher which allows the users to do amazing things such as use custom themes, play SNES games, play out of region games and so many other cool things! On the website, it explains what will you need to use and how to install the launcher. After that you’ll need to download an ACNL save manager which I’ll link here: AC:NL Save Manager

You’ll next need to dump your save file into a save manager. So you’ll need to open Homebrew, run the save manager, wait a few seconds, press to dump the save file then press to exit then turn the console off and put the SD card back into the computer. The next step is when you now edit your town, you’ll now need to open the save data file from your SD card with the save editor now. Once you’ve edited your town, save it and place it back into your console, go back into the Homebrew launcher and run the ACNL save manager, wait a few more seconds and then press to inject the hacked save file into your game then press X to exit the manager. Exit the Homebrew launcher and your changes to the game should be there.

Like I’ve said before ALWAYS make sure to make a copy of your save file as if anything goes wrong there’s a backup of your save file so you can restore your old save files.
