The wait for facility upgrades is oh so cruel. Tomorrow I should have the museum and three new residents, but from what I hear I'm still days away from an upgraded resident services.
Be sure to grind those Nook Miles, y'all! There are some really important upgrades to buy with 'em, including an inventory upgrade. The tickets to visit other islands can yield great stuff, too. More rocks and trees to farm resources from, abundant fish and coconuts, and on occasion you can find non-native town fruit. Between my GF and I we've found everything but cherries by using tickets to visit random islands. (A lot of this y'all probably already know, but it's hard to tear myself away long enough to be genuinely helpful, lol.)
EDIT: Everyone's been posting such cool screenshots, I shouldn't start a new page without something lively.
EDIT: This was one of the most nerve-racking things I've experienced in a video game in years, and that's saying something considering the stuff I'm used to playing:
mitchellbravo:It's important for context to remember that in our old country, Seven Rain was a bit of a legendary personality- a yeti, if you will.
DAY 3 ADDENDUM: I paid for the next house level, took two tours to islands for iron (and should have enough for the store tomorrow), found more pears, and convinced a peacock and a mouse to come to Scarolina. I also bought a meat smoker, though I don't think I'm going to be smoking any meat any time soon.
As for encounters, after nightfall I found tarantulas. The first kicked my ass, but then I managed to catch one without having it chase me. And then another. The third, was right outside my door so I just caught it. There was also a ghost on the other side of the island, I scared him and he exploded, so I had to collect the other parts of his soul. He gave me a stone floor that complements my custom wall pattern.
@JammyTheBirb Aw don't feel bad, I'm hoping to move Rocket out in the long run cause she's one of those animals that always wears a helmet. The animals only have so many personalities, might as well have the ones you like most.
I have a few that I'm really hoping for. If anyone ends up with Jambette and doesnt want her, hit me up when she's in boxes lol. Also looking for Wolfgang especially ^^
Ok, Now I'm really jealous XD You got pretty much my perfect starting villagers, timelapse!
Right now I have Mac, Agnes, Broccolo and Tammi. I'm gonna get Ava tomorrow. Ava's the only one I want to keep.
Mac and Agnes have been very nice to me, but I want to build a bird island dangit. I hate Broccolo's face in particular. I don't know why it makes me so uncomfortable, but it does. Tammi looks like she might kill me.
