You might remember me from my Wild World Blog; AC:WW Rainbow. I got New Leaf on March 21st, and the town was there until...well...today. I remember being so excited, too excited to actually savour the moment (haha). Then as I found a layout (in all honesty I found the maps confusing and just chose a layout that at first glance looked good) and answered the first question- I realised in horror I forgot to look up a face guide to get the face I want O-o
So I resetted- then I for some reason I just went with the town I got, I picked it for the pretty long, winding river and all buildings being in the same location ( up North). Prior to getting NL,I searched for good town layouts, and thought a 'private beach' seemed cool, but in all the excitement forgot to check for one, haha :p Oh well XD
Despite the bit of disappointment when I saw the green train station, I kept the town- until I just couldn't bear my town's layout- I found someone to hold my stuff, then finally deleted the town and started resetting. I reset for about 5 hours total, but it's worth it. It took me about a minute or two to look through 4 town layouts. Say each reset took two minutes (some were faster, some were slower)- and that it took me exactly 5 hours total. That's 300 minutes (man...), so 300/2=150 resets. 150*4 (for the 4 town maps I'm shown) = I saw around 600 town maps 0-0
So, on the 3rd of April I seriously considered resetting my town. I first asked for the opinions of others on ACC, who told me to just go for it, find a holding town, and do it sooner than later. I took their advice. I put my trusted friend (who also gave me my first ever DLCs on my first day) in charge of holding my rare items (I sent her a list so I could check it later to ensure everything's there). I then found someone else (checked their Wi-Fi ratings first) to hold all my orderables (mostly DLCs).
And so I started resetting, and today I finally found my perfect town!
So, take my advice; if there's something you don't like about your town and it's really bugging you, go for it and reset! Do it now, as it will be harder to catch up if you do it a few months in ^^ The people on Animal Crossing Community are very trustworthy, so you can trust them to hold your items.
I was about to give up hope when Rover showed me a layout I quite liked- small river, fairly large private beach, Re-Tail near dock, South-facing waterfall- everything I wanted. So, I went for it- but I anticipated something else being messed up- be it the grass, fruit, or Train Station and Town Hall roof colour. As I rode into town, I caught a glimpse of the circle grass. 'So far so good' I thought. I then saw the blue train station. I was happy, but at the same time: I thought the Town Hall roof would be...well...not what I wanted. I continued with the game, and on my way to the Town Hall I saw the Native Fruit: pears. I thought to myself 'if everything's perfect, the native fruit doesn't matter to me'. I actually gasped when I saw the blue Town Hall.Finally! This is quite similar to my WW town- I wanted apples or cherries as my native fruit, but I got pears, but everything was perfect!
I don't mind pears, in all honesty. They're cool xD
Anyway- here's how my first day in town went!
(I took pictures from my 3DS and photographed them from my laptop, sorry)
Previous Rainbow's Layout
- The river's okay, but just a little too long. I love how it's winding, however!
- Triangle grass was okay but I much prefer circle grass, it's fun! (If triangle grass turned into star snow I would have been more ok with triangle)
- Eastern Waterfall
- Re-tail too far from dock
- Ponds getting in the way in the South
- No private beach
- Green station, Brown town hall
- This is a matter of opinion!
A pretty good one
I was quite close to getting this one, it was on my first reset (current Rainbow's better, though)
but the grass was triangle & the town hall was not the colour I wanted.
Oh stop it, you xD
Taken at the wrong time x3
