Update 1.7.0 is live and we're pleased to announce the changes listed below.

New Leaf Avatars - Firstly, we have the long awaited addition of New Leaf avatars. If you've been waiting to use some of the new villagers, now's your chance. One thing to note is that we are moving away from having Landscape Avatars, therefore you will find New Leaf avatars available only in the Custom Avatar section. To change your avatars, simply go to your profile, click on your own avatar, and you'll be taken to the avatar page.


Items List - In the left margin there is a section called Gameplay with several links. Four of the links are AC:NL Items, AC:CF Items, AC:WW Items and AC:GC Items. These links are supposed to lead to images of the items available in those respective games. It was noticed that the images being used on ACC for these in-game items were mainly images from the GameCube version of Animal Crossing. In order to add in the correct images for each game, we've had to remove the code that automatically showed the GC items. This means there are now many missing images but we'll be working on those in upcoming updates.

There was one error found in testing when using the Items List. Apparently this is a pre-existing error which will be fixed in another update. The error occurs sometimes when searching the Items List and pressing ''Enter'' on your keyboard. However, if you use the click on the ''Search'' button on the page you should avoid this error.

Some better news for the Items List is that you can now find images of Series 1 and Series 2 of the Happy Home Designer amiibo cards. You can access these via the amiibo Cards link in the Gameplay section of the left margin. In addition, the e-Reader Cards link, which previously led to all the GameCube items except the e-Reader Cards, now shows all the cards and their images.


My Catalog - This feature has undergone a few changes. Please be advised that in order to see these changes and to use the My Catalog feature for any game you must first have created a town in My Towns and a character in My Characters for the applicable games. Both are accessible via links in the My ACC section in the left margin. To access the new features added today you will need a GameCube town and character, and a Happy Home Designer town and character.

The changes made in the My Catalog feature are as follows.

For GameCube catalogues, e-Reader cards have been re-added. Until now, you were able to trade e-Reader cards on the Trading Post but only if you had added them to the My Catalog section before they were removed a few years ago. The new update shows the e-reader cards in your GameCube catalogue and allows others to see what is available for trading.

For both e-Reader cards and amiibo cards, the catalogue now has the option to show which duplicates you have, which is highly useful if you are wishing to trade the duplicates. In the My Catalog page, choose either a GameCube character or a Happy Home Designer character and click on the Edit link located in the right of the blue bar above the item categories. Then click on the e-Reader or amiibo series you wish to edit, and scroll down to Section 2 where you will see the option of marking cards as multiples. This allows others to see which cards you have for trade.  

Since both amiibo cards and e-Reader cards are not attached to an in-game character, and are instead real world items, the addition of both types of cards to the catalogue section are not tied to an in-game character either. So, all of your GameCube characters will show the same e-Reader catalogue, and all of your Happy Home Designer characters will show the same amiibo card catalogue.


Trading Post - With the re-addition of the e-Reader cards to My Catalog, you can now use the Trading Post in order to trade them. If you are unsure about how this process works, check out the Trading Guide. If you still have questions, you can post them on the Help with Trading Sticky. As a reminder, only those users aged 16 and above should be exchanging e-Reader cards, and mailing addresses should be shared via a private thread.

Unfortunately the Trading Post does not currently support the trading of amiibo cards. These trades must still be carried out by exchanging mailing addresses via a private thread, and only by those aged 16 and above. We hope to add full amiibo card trading capability to the Trading Post in a future update.


My Buddies - The My Buddies page has had a minor change. Previously there were two buttons at the bottom of the page: ''Invite Selected Users to Private Thread'' and  ''Remove Selected Buddies''. These buttons remain but a second set has been added to the top of the page.


Game Guides Board - As already announced we will soon be adding a new Special Projects Team to work exclusively on existing and new Game Guides. To this end, we required a board for them to work and this was added today. With the board in place the invites will also soon go out. However, the Staff have not been sitting idly by and there are a handful of guides in queue to be released in the next few updates.


Talking of future updates, we are hoping that a few more may be released later this week or next week, and this is likely to include the highly desired name change feature. More information will be posted on the Project Reboot - Updates 2016 thread on the ACC Noticeboard.

For Update 1.7.0, let us know if you have any questions or technical issues by posting on this thread on the Site Support board.

Enjoy!

Apologies!

We've found an issue with the latest update. If you've previously marked any amiibo cards in the My Catalog section of ACC, you may find that your catalogue has reset itself. This was due to some changes we made on how the amiibo cards are treated and categorised by the site. We're sorry if your amiibo card catalogue has reset itself, but can assure you that this problem is associated with Update 1.7.0 and future updates won't affect your catalogue.
