Ok, so Ken was in camp today and I convinced him to move! How many days until he moves in? Is it random?

He will be there today, and then tomorrow he will be gone, and then the day after he will make a "housing plot" ^.^ and then the cycle continues

I am delighted to have Skye as a resident in my town now... I got her first try!

I have a question. I'm trading villagers with someone since katt is moving out. She said she's moving on the 8th. Does this mean she's packing on the 7th? Thanks!

Just to be clear:

Day 1: Current resident villager has boxes packed and is ready to move out.

Day 2: Villager is moved out and gone.

Day 3: This is the day when we do the new character?

Also, when we create the character, do we have to make a plot for a home too, or when they arrive in town we look for the plot? Thanks in advance!

^^ That is exactly right! ^.^ It may take two days for an animal to appear, so after 4-5 resets if you see no one moving in, they probably will the next day, and you can safely load your mayor character.

Also, no, you don't have to make a house for the new character, yet! You shouild check out the town for the animal/house location. If you like what is loaded, then you can have the character make a house and then save. After you save, you can safely delete the spare character, since the data for the day will be saved and loaded on the mayor's profile ^.^


A Bit of an Update

It seems that if you get 10 animals, meaning one from the campsite, and if another animal moves, you must get another animal from the campsite. Flo moved, and I've had Chrissy for four days, and no new animal has made any plot of land yet in my town.
A good friend of mine laserlime got Genji and Jeremiah both from the campsite in her town. So it seems either no one moves in randomly if the 10th animal moves, or it's extremely rare to have someone randomly show up.

O:
So you're saying to not load our Mayor char, but instead, to create a new char on the day that we're expecting a new villager to appear ? O:
Then if we don't like the house location/villager, we just reset and it'll be somewhere else ? O WO

Sorry if this was already answered xd; I tried reading most of the first page Dx;

IdyllicGabby that is correct! Then when you reset with the new character and make a new one, another house/animal will be generated ^.^

I recently read another method in GameFAQs! Neighbors don't build over Public Works Projects, so if you don't have any special buildings to make (IE Police Station, Dream Suite, Cafe) you can give for example the areas where you keep hybrid gardens or even in front of your house a nice decorative pwp, and it works as a barrier.
I made a Fairy Tale Clock and a Lamp Post near the front of my house! Just remember, there is a limit to how many pwps you can make, so choose wisely! Hope it helps! =^-^=

This method also works with campers. The game doesn't decide what kind of personalities campers have. They are random. So that could be good if you think the game is going to give you a certain type of player through villager reset.

If u have 10 villagers plus a campsite, when u get a camper can u still get them to move in? Or do u have to wait until someone moves out to try to get a camper?

Also if u have 10 villagers, when one moves out which day does a new villager put up a plot?

I want Lobo so I think I'm gonna keep using this trick when I get my next chance until I get him. Its possible to get ANY villager from this trick right? Or does the game only allow certain species/personality depending on what u already have? Lol I'm determined to get Lobo. XD

Ok, I've successfully used the trick to place a new camper move-in.

But now, another villager is moving in, and it's Moe. I've reset several times and the villager doesn't change. It's stuck at Moe. What's happening?

BoBoBo_77 You have to wait until someone moves out, because ten is the absolute max, with the exception of the "temporary" 11th camper.

It works like this from what I've seen. Goldie packs up, the next day, she moves. Then the day after she moves, another plot will show up. Unless Goldie was your tenth animal. If she was your tenth animal and you only have nine now, you must get a camper to move in to have 10 again. Although even at 9, animals can still try to move away.

You have better chances with the villager plot thing if you don't have any crankies, to get Lobo. However, I hear that the camper can have any personality type, so in theory, it's possible either way. I now have 2 peppys, one Bella, a starting animal who is wanting to move, and Chrissy, my one camper who I moved in. Camper reset takes alot longer because sometimes a tent wont even show up, whereas the house plot will almost always be generated if you only have 8 and the ninth is coming. If you have 9, from what I can tell, you don't need to worry at all about house plots because the 10th animal has to be a camper regardless. ^.^

Kattey probably you loaded the game when Moe moved in to get the camper to move in, and since you loaded it with your mayor character, Moe is now permanantly moving in. Unless Moe is gonna be your 10th, I wouldn't worry at all. C: Plus a lot of people love Moe.

As far as I know, he has to be your ninth, because from what I've seen and experienced, regardless of who moves out/in, every tenth animal HAS to be a camper. So, in theory, you could have a town full of campers who you like. This is just how I'm experiencing it so far.

Moe will be my tenth. Basically, here's what happened.

1. Poncho told me he was moving out.
2. Ken came camping and I convinced him to move in.
3. Days later... Poncho moves out.
4. A day later, Ken moves in (effectively the 9th villager)
5. A day later, Moe tries to move in (haven't saved yet ) (10th)

Hmm... maybe my game is just glitched then xD or maybe you had a glitch? Or maybe it literally is random

I've had Chrissy for about a week now, have had other campers, but still only have 9 animals, because Chrissy was my ninth. No one has tried to move in yet, and Bella is moving out on the 10th.

Maybe Moe came from another town? Did any of your WiFi friends have Moe? Because if they did, Moe would be like a camper, and you would get them both, but I doubt it was a WiFi thing...

Yeah, I dunno, weird! I don't think he came from another town. None of my friends had Moe.

It's funny because I can keep making new characters to move his house, but it's always Moe. Maybe it's because his move-in overlapped with the camper's move-in? And that somehow determined his fate? Who knows.

Anyway, what can ya do, at least he won't be parking right on my paths this time. I'm sticking his ugly mug way in the back.. heh heh heh.

If he never mentioned it or they didn't even have him, he's definitely not from another town xD

That's a very interesting theory! Maybe because it did overlap he's destined to move in, or maybe it's just a move in glitch? xD

Indeed! Atleast you can choose where you want him to move into ^.^ it would be bad if he was stuck in one area, that's what I thought you meant at first. xD

I just recently had a villager move out. I've been doing this trick, but the other day, I made a new character and ran around my entire town, and I didn't see a fence being built anywhere. I just thought that I wasn't going to be getting a villager that day. Then I logged on on my main character and a fence was being built. I KNOW I checked that spot when I made the new character first. I checked the entire town and it was clear.... -.-'

Am I doing this correctly? I'm wanting 2 other villagers to move out soon and I need this trick so they don't destroy my paths.
