I brought my GameCube home, and my Mom saw me playing A.C., and for the first time she actually wanted to play a video game. She went so far as to say she finally understood how one can spend hours on end playing video games.

Then she ruined the moment by saying that it was just like playing with dolls...



Now I can go back and play more Animal Crossing

"Playing with dolls"?!? Now, what would make her say a crazy thing like tha ...



Oh.

Well, at least the male characters look like some crazy viking-clown hybrid ... That's kinda cool.

Give the password to the person you were going to trade with, and they take the password to Nook, and Nook gives them the goods.

    How on earth can that work? There's not phone line for the information to go through or anything. I just don't understand.

    This game sounds awesome, but I'm afraid it would forever dominate my destiny if I bought it.

    I think that every single possible item in the game has a password associated with it. It's encrypted somehow with the town/character name as the key. To have it decrypted, you give this password to the person who's town/character name matches the one you gave Nook, They give it to him, and boom, they get the item. Data is sent in the form of an encrypted message, and only to the person it's meant for. The password is the item, the item is the password, basically.

    Fuzzy Logic put it quite nicely. Every item in the game has some corresponding code. That code is then slightly modified by the Town/Person name that you're sending it to. Now what I'm wondering is if there's some anti-cheat protection in here. Cause if it just works with the town/person encryption, you could just take the same password back to Nook again and again to get the same items, even though no one sent it. The easiest way to prevent this would be to add another layer (or more) of encryption. Such as having the date/time of the sender add more letters to the password. This way, you can only use the password given to you once, because even if the exact same person sent you the exact same item, the password would change a little bit each time, and your game would only let you use each password once.

    -Jag

    So has anyone used it? Is there any anti-cheat protection?

    I think the protection is a "You can only use each password once per 24 hour period" thing. Which is good enough 'cause like to get a whole bunch quick, you'd need to set your clock ahead each time you wanted it (which would be a big pain in the ass), or just wait 24 hours to keep getting it. Anti-cheating by way of being big pain in the arse. But, I'm not completely sure, I don't have the game yet and I only played it for 4 hours when I had the machine at my house. I have yet to try any item trading.

    Has anyone fully stocked a wing of the museum yet? (I'm just curious to see what happens)

    Also, any luck getting a golden shovel?? Anyone??

    I have two Golden Shovel trees growing.

    You have to plant the shovel in the same glowing hole that you can make the money tree with.

    I have yet to get money off of a money tree, but we have planted a bunch. I think they keep getting trampelled.

    When do you get the shovel? Will it be obvious? I already screwed up an earlier shovel tree attempt by digging it up too early.

    I've planted a couple shovels in the glowing spots, but I think they keep getting trampled, because none make it past the sapling phase.

    Successfully have both an apple & cherry tree growing, in addition to the default peach trees.

    I actually dug up a 10,000 bell bag last night. That's the 1st one of those I've seen. Usually it's just 1000 bells.

    Once the shovel tree is fully grown you shake it and the Golden Shovel will fall out. With the Golden Shovel you can....


    **SPOILERS**


    Dig in random spots and get 100 bell bags, digging in marked spots with net you rarer items, and it's used on the GBA island to get rare Island only items...

    I sorta have the whole ring built, but it's all nuetral corners. Looks fine, though.

    And I'm two fossils away from filling that wing. (A T-Rex torso and a Mammoth skull, although you can't send fossils, so that really doesn't matter.) The paintings are a hell of a lot harder to come by, so I highly doubt that anyone's filled that wing without cheating. (I only have three).

    Plus, since some fish and incests only come out in the spring and summer, no one (in this country, at least) could possibly have gotten all of them, without seriously fucking with the Gamecube's internal dating. (And, really, you don't want to do that, because the game will think you haven't played in six months, and the town'll be overrun with weeds, and your house will be overrun with cockroaches, and everyone in town will be sorta pissed off at you for abandoning them.)

    Start pestering/abusing one of your neighbor's until they move to the other town. When they do, go visit them and continue your abuse! They will love seeing you again!

    Edit: Somethingawful.com had some fun tips if you want to create chaos but I can't find the link.

    HA! The owl in the museum said "Hootie Hoo" to me the other day ...




    Whatever happened to the "Rap is Crap" world tour, anyway?

    Hmmm ...

    Okay, that article was hilarious. I wonder if people just walk around constantly pissed if you do all that?

    If you piss people off, they usually go back to normal after a little bit. I've hit people w/ the net to the point where they get pissed at me, but then I stop, so I don't know what happens if you take it to the extreme.

    On another note, anybody have any space-themed carpet and/or wallpaper? I've got a space shuttle and a rocket, and want to do one of my rooms in a space motif. If anybody has any, PM me. Thanks!

    EDIT: I'll take any space-themed objects, as well.
