OK.. I was discussing a weird Animal Crossing trade idea... and this came to me. And the more I think about it, the more I want to try it.
I want to send my Character on a cross country trip.
If anyone cares to help me out with this, I would be grateful. I want to make a travel profile for my character, and mail it out to a chain of about 5 people who live in decent mail distance (I might want ONE Canada... my concern is that it would take a long time to go through all of the people). Somewhere in the continental US for sure. Basically I would pack a ton of items (and money, if need be) and mail out the memory crd to the first person on the list. That person would have my player trade in his town (using their Gyroid and the post office to handle any trades we pre arranged), and mail the card onto the next person on the list (with pre prepared envelopes that come in the package). It would give me an excuse to stop playing the game for a while, and I think it would be really interesting to see what kinds of things my character comes back with, and what kinds of animals move between the towns.
Well? anyone want to indulge me?

One problem with this -

You tend to lose animal inhabitants in each town that you visit... and the animals in those towns might want stuff to go to people in your town.

Plus... I'm not sure what happens if your toon goes to a town that has a "Teddy" and you have "Teddy" in your town - do you lose your Teddy?


Your analogy is similar to:

"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?"
"I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?"
"They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"

-- my new favorite quote from Slashdot comments.

Well, here is my experience with that.

I do not know anyone local who has a Gamecube, so I started another town on another memory card and then went to visit it. Here is what I experienced-

A few animals DID move from my original town to my new town. I went back to visit again and everything was the same about them- from their possesions right down to the catchphrases I taught them.
From what I figure, all of the animals in your town are encoded onto your travel profile, and when you stop in a town they like, they move there. Then, when you "return" from your trip, the animals are moved off of your towns memory. I did get letters upon my return from the ones that did move, saying where they were moving too, and have a nice life, sort of thing.
In addition, a few of the animals from the new town also moved to my original one. Same affect.
Now none of them have ever asked about delivering an item or picking up an item from someone in another town. The only time something like that comes up is that the animals will ofen reminice about people they used to know, and they will sometimes show you letters from their old town. Kind of funny, actually.
That is part of the reason I want to do this- changing up the animals in my town to that extreme might be interesting... as I am sure it will be to the other people who play along...

I've had to make deliveries to other towns before. Hell, that's what the "throw an item into the wishing well and apologize" thing is there for, for when one of your animals moves to another memory card which isn't available any more.

Figured I'd try and beat KJames199 to the punch on this one. The inevitable announcement is here. To compete with Xbox Live Arcade and the PS Network, the Wii will now offer original downloadable titles to complement the Virtual Console. IGN:
