Q: What is a spotlight product and when does one appear?

A: A spotlight product is a special item that will appear in Nook’s shop, he will post a message about it on the Message Board and he will let you know when you walk in the door. They are somewhat rare, and will only occur if you create another character (or have created a character sometime previously in the town). Although it is said they appear more commonly if you create another character. Others say the trick to getting them is to buy few or no items from Nook. Spotlight items can only be obtained this way or from Shooting Stars. (Shooting Stars will give out one random spotlight item (mailed), including the throne.)

Q: What are shooting stars?

A: A shooting star is a comet like object which randomly at night will go past the top screen of your DS. What's it for? Well, when it goes by, press "A" to "Wish" on it. Your player should make a praying type gesture. The next morning, you will receive a letter from the star. With a spotlight item attached. Note: You cannot be holding any item in your hand while pressing "A" while a star is passing. For more information, check out this guide.

Q: What is Tag Mode and how does it work?

A:
Tag mode was a mode created to let you know when another DS was near, and so that you could send messages in a bottle back and forth. If there is a DS nearby (within 30 feet or so) your DS will show; it should show you a message that it was detected. Tag mode is also used to receive promo items from DS download stations. Note: You must release a note in a bottle before you can enter Tag Mode; check out this thread for help with that.

Q: Why can’t I add/remove/move furniture in my attic? How do I change the bed in my attic?

A:
Your attic, which is where your bed is, the one you wake up from at the start screen, sometimes can be confused with your upstairs’ room, which cannot be altered in any way other than changing the bed. To change the bed, go up to the the end of the bed and press the A Button (Pressing the A Button on the side of the bed causes you to jump onto it). If you do this correctly a message should come up saying “Want a different bed?”. You then choose “Switch!” and choose a bed from your inventory to change it to.

Q: How do I get a tan/sunburn?

A:
Play in sunlight during the second half of July or during August. If your character stays inside a lot, if you play at night, or if you play with an umbrella you will lose your tan. This will take awhile though, so a recommendation is to stand by the beach, plug your DS in the charger, and but do NOT close the lid.

Q: How many bells/presents/bees are in my trees?

A:
16 bell trees, 2 present trees, and 4 bee trees. At least, those are the ideal figures, they may vary depending on how many non-fruit trees in your town. For some reason, leaving 22 non-fruit trees does not guarantee you will get all the bells, presents and bees.

Q: How do I catch a Bee? How do I avoid Bee Stings?

A:
Bees are found by shaking trees, a random tree may carry a nest. Now, the tip to catching a bee is to, First, run towards an open area, somewhere where you can see. Next, Pause the screen. The bees will be circle-ing your head frantically. Second, equip. your net, BUT, do not un-pause. Take a look at the top screen, try and look for a change in there pattern, your queue is to un-pause as SOON as you see they have gotten a little farther from your head. Press "A" immediately for the hopes on catching one. This isn't full proof, but is definitely one of the only ways on catching these things. If you get stung, just try again. To avoid bee stings, run indoors to the nearest building, as quickly as possible and the bees will disperse.

Q: How do I grow a money tree?

A:
To plant a money tree, use the Golden Shovel to plant an bury somewhere between 1,000 and 90,000 bells. if the tree grows, it may just sprout three bags of the amount of bells you planted. Note: Even if the tree grows to maturity, money is not guaranteed to grow; also note that once picked, the money will not grow back. For more information on Money Trees, check out this guide.

Q: How do I get other fruit?

A:
If you send your villagers mail they will sometimes send you foreign fruit in return., Some nice friends will also spare you some fruit as well. Remember that each town has its own native fruit: Apples, Peaches, Pears, Oranges, or Cherries. Coconut trees can also be grown (sometimes a coconut will wash up on shore), however they are not native to any town, and must be planted near the beach area.

Q: What are Hybrids?

A:
Hybrids are 'special' flowers that are not able to be gotten via Tom Nooks, or any other item gathering center. (Garbage dump, lost and found, From a resident, etc.) To obtain a hybrid flower, you must place two of the same type of Flower next to each other. Either Diagonal or side to side. These flowers may 'breed' and at any random day, a hybrid flower will pop up next to the two breeding flowers. For more information, check out this guide.

Q: Why won't the coconut grow!?

A:
Coconuts will only grow by the sea shore, remember, this means by the sand. It can be grown on the dirt above the sand, but not too far up. Note: If you do not know where to get a coconut, the beach will occasionally wash them up.

Q: Why doesn’t Joan sell me any Red Turnips?

A:
Joan only sells red turnips if it’s been more than a week since the last time you time traveled or if your DS and in-game clock differ by a significant amount of time. To fix this, resynchronize the times. If you'd like to tell others what your price for your turnips are in your town, check out this thread. For more information on Turnips, check out this thread.

Q: How do I send bottled mail?

Q: When do special visitors come?

A:
During any given week, Monday through Friday, when Tortimer or Cornimer are not scheduled to appear, the game will host one visit from Crazy Redd (scheduled by you), two days with visits from Wendell, Saharah, Pascal, Katrina, Gracie, Gulliver, or Shrunk, and two days of Katie/Kaitlin, Blanca, or Pete. Special visitors come at different times. It is possible for Blanca to appear after some special visitors leave, for example, Blanca could appear after 12AM when Wendell leaves town. Try talking with Booker to see if there’s any in your town that day. For more information, check out this guide.

Q: How do I get villagers to stay/leave my town?

A:
Villagers who are leaving will have every item packed away into various boxes, if you want them to leave, select the option that encourages leaving, such as "Farewell, etc." If you want them to stay, Select the option that encourages that. Do this until they give a hint in some way they are staying.

Q: Why do villagers in other towns have different looking houses?

A:
In the game there is three sets of town types. Town type A, B, and C. In each town type, includes different grass shapes (Triangle, square, and circle) as well as how the villagers houses will look. One type includes is a more duller color, one type includes a theme of blues purples and tans, the other is in between, and has a "Checkered" type pattern on villagers doors.

Q: What is a ninth slot?

A:
The "Ninth slot" refers to a memory slot in the Animal Crossing Wild worlds data bank. When an animal resident moves out of your town it gets transferred to this "Ninth Slot". Now, what's it for you may be asking, well, here's how it works. When over wifi for example, you visit a friend town lets say. Now, visiting that town will give their game (your friends) your ninth slot villager, and replace it to there ninth slot. Meaning, the next villager whom moves in to there town, will be that "Ninth slot villager". So, Essentially the ninth slot animal is the animal moving into your town next.

Q: I donated bells to Boondox, but didn’t get a feather! Why?

A:
Donations run on exact amounts, so, if you donate 10,000 bells, that means it is added on to your total. So you would only need to donate 190,000 more bells to get the Blue Feather. Also, over-donating will cause you to miss receiving a feather. For example, donating 10,001 bells will not earn you the Green Feather. For more information, check out this guide.

Q: How do I get a residents picture? Will a villager give me another picture if I lost the first?

A:
Pictures are given to you from an animal after you have befriended him/her enough to a point when the picture is given to you. Some tips on befriending an animal is to Wave to them(Tap on them from distance with the stylus), send them letters, Talk to them daily, aswell as complete tasks and general favors. Some animals, depending on there personality, may take a shorter, or longer time to receive a picture from. If you lose your first pic, the villager will not give you another. But there is one way to get a villagers picture more than once; this is by creating another character and Starting the friendship process with that villager until he or she gives you that picture again using the other character.
