That is a lot of stuff, especially the rusted parts and gold nuggets. I think I have 10 gold nuggets, would have 11 but I've crafted a golden slingshot.
Not even including getting the right recipes from Celeste. I think she's been in my town twice (that I know of) . I only have the wand, and Aries sheep.

I've been to probably 30 islands and it's apples almost every time! One time peaches and another bamboo. Not good odds.

Wolf, if you want to visit my island, I can give you all of the fruit you need to take home and plant all of the remaining fruit trees. Let me know.

The robot was a huge pain. I resorted to traveling back and forth from one night to the next and back to get the recipe from Celeste. It took about 15 trips to get that particular recipe. I think the gold armor recipe was just a random one that you get. Getting gold seems to be pure luck and is the rarest of the needed materials.

I wonder if it's random, because those are the first two I got. She was on my island for a third time last night and I got (I think) a floor.

Is bamboo a naturally occurring tree or is it only on islands you can visit with Nook tickets? I think I'm missing that and pears, because I have cherries, apples, oranges, peaches, and coconuts (from nook miles). I haven't seen the other tropical or special fruits so not sure if they're in the game.

I'm not sure how to do that. Do I need the paid nintendo membership?

I think he's just time traveling by messing with the switch's clock.

I'm missing pears but I'll bring apples.

Ok, got in and got out (because I know it prohibits you from doing some stuff when you have guests over). Thanks again! I'll post if I ever get anything more than 125 on turnips...

Man my island is a trash dump, though... I have stuff lying on the ground everywhere. Though now that I can add another room my storage will go up. I really have to start giving away some of this excess stuff to my villagers (who are grateful for even cardboard boxes).

Left you some pears by your fountain DVDChris, and I took a cherry (hope you don’t mind!).

Turnips have sold at a loss all week on my island (thanks again spainlinx0 for letting me sell at your place).

Does anyone's Nook's Cranny store sell rose seeds? Still trying to hunt down a plant of each color down, but don't want to ask about digging up from other folks.

I just happened to look and I have red and white rose seeds. Not sure what color you're looking for, and it's the only time I've even noticed rose seeds in the store (though I don't check every day)

I was so busy making ugly shit for Bunny Day on Sunday that I forget to buy Turnips. I could have time traveled back I suppose, but couldn't be bothered.
Won't make that same mistake next week.

I can deliver some to you if you want (unless you want hundreds or something, they're pretty cheap). Or if you don't mind the mess (and I'm NOT kidding) you can come over, either way.

didn't realize the Switch will power off if I leave idle (so people can visit). How do you disable that?

Re: Animal Crossing: New Horizons (3/20/20: Switch)

One thing I learned is that a meteor shower will happen exactly at the same time on a specific date. For example, let's say you are out tonight at 10:12 on April 17th and 5 stars fall during a 2 minute period, that same event will happen again and again. If you really want to get stars, then you look for an event like that and note the time and date. You can forward to the next morning and collect and then repeat the cycle. I know many on here don't want to do that and I completely understand. However, my attention span with a game wanes over time and I want to make the most of it while it has its claws in me. By the way, this is the most time I have invested in a title since GTAV. That is solely because of the amount of online time. I don't think I have ever crossed the 100 plus hour threshold for a single player game. I'm well past 150 in this one.

Thanks for letting me shop in your store earlier, much appreciated.

Now I just need to find some Yellow Rose seeds and I can get get to creating all those crazy rose hybrids.
