Fix the Bricks

When I started up the game today, I quickly noticed that the grass color has changed since the last time I played. 











But that orange brick path was still bothering me. It was too bright for a Halloween path. I went into the Able Sisters and got my previous orange brick pattern that I've used in previous years. This is a bit better:











When I went to visit Lily, she asked me for a grasshopper. She must be hungry!











I found Saharah the camel (on hump day, no less) hanging out around the museum. She asked me for some old wallpaper, and I realized it's been a long time since I've gotten something new from her.











Bunnie told me she didn't any old wallpaper because she traded hers for some slippers. Let me guess...bunny slippers?











I asked all of my villagers, but Lily was the only one who had some wallpaper to give me. I didn't have any in storage, so I was unable to get any rare wallpaper this time. Maybe I'll have better luck next time.

A Horse, Of Course

In the Wii wee hours of the morning, I started up my game to check on my town. There was a new house in the spot where Ribbot recently lived. But this house belongs to Ed.











I'm not a big fan of Ed; he's not my favorite horse. You may be saying a horse is a horse, of course, of course. But I disagree. I think he may even be a cyclops! Do you see another eye? I didn't think so! If you don't believe me, go straight to the source and ask the horse! Tongue out











Halloween may still be a ways off, but it's never too early to start thinking about it. So I decided to change my brick path color from green to orange. I'm not sure I'm 100% satisfied with it, though. It might look better without the white reflections on it. I might make some changes to it another day, but it's okay for now.











Being so late at night early in the morning, most of my villagers were asleep. So I couldn't talk to Lily or Kiki. I'll be sure to catch them next time, though. Bye for now!

Melba's Yucky Face

It was a dark, gloomy, rainy night in Forest. Lily asked me to make a delivery to Kiki, so I agreed to help her out. The gift was an optical shirt, and Kiki's eyes tell me she was a bit surprised by the item. 











Down by my southern bridge (not far from Kiki's house), Angus told Melba she had something on her face. After she tried to get it off, Angus said it was just her nose. Melba wasn't very happy about the prank.











I made my way back around to Lily's house and told her I completed the delivery. She thanked me and gave me some ceramic tile as a reward. Can you imagine if people in real life gave everyone flooring and wallpaper as gifts all the time? What a strange world that would be.











Most of the summer bugs are long gone, but the goliath beetles are still out and about...even in the rain! I accidentally scared away the first one I saw, but I made sure to catch the second one. Gotcha!











Ribbot's replacement hasn't moved in yet, so Forest still has nine animal villagers. I'll update again later in the week to see who #10 turns out to be. See you then!

Wi-Fi Moments #62: The Finale

At long last, here is the final episode of ACCF Wi-Fi Moments. This shows many events from May 19/20, 2014, which was the final night of online play. Chris, Megan, Michael, and Yann visited as we played various games (sumo, museum tag) and did glitches for the last time. Two minutes of the video is devoted to a mini-slideshow of pictures of online play. At the end, we say our sad, final goodbyes. Without further ado, here is the video:

As for today, I checked my mail and got Ribbot's goodbye letter, as expected.











However, his replacement has not arrived yet. I still have just nine villagers. I began my walk around town and I ran into Lily; she gave me a modern wall for free! 











On my northern bridge, Angus was doing his best Pascal impersonation. Unfortunately, he didn't jump in the river though.











I bumped into Kiki, and she asked me to make a delivery to Lily. I still knew where Lily was (at least the general area), so it was easy to take her the gift--a jagged shirt. Lily put it on and I returned to Kiki to tell her I completed the task. She rewarded me with an oak silk moth! I thought that was an unusually good reward, until I realized it's the same one I caught for her last weekend.











It's Saturday of course, so I went up to the museum (and down to the Roost) to check out the weekly musical performance. I told K.K. I was sad (probably from making the final Wi-Fi Moments video), and he sang K.K. Waltz for me. Thanks, dog.











Thank you to all who have enjoyed the blogs and the videos over the years. Even though there won't be further ACCF Wi-Fi Moments videos, I'll be covering Animal Crossing games for many years to come! Stay tuned to jvgsjeff on Youtube and jvgs.net

Sunday, August 31, 2014

After spending nearly an hour looking for an oak silk moth for Kiki last night, I didn't want all that effort to go to waste. So I started the game up today and quickly took her the bug. She thanked me for it, and rewarded me with...752 bells. Seriously? I guess all that effort did go to waste after all.











The funniest part was that she said "I don't really know if it's your style, but I hope you like it." 

Anyway, tonight was the last fireworks festival of 2014. I stopped over at town hall to speak with Tortimer; he was handing out some sparklers and Roman candles. I'm not so sure that he's giving good advice, however:











I went over to a bridge (my usual spot) to watch some of the fireworks.











I also lit a Roman candle while I was there. Who says there's anything wrong with burning bridges?











But the night wasn't all happiness and explosions and fire. My heart sank when I went into Ribbot's house and saw that he's all packed up and ready to move out of town! Why do the good ones always leave?











On that sad note, I ended my game for the night.

Keep an eye out for my Wi-Fi Moments finale video coming out later this week!
