Hello everyone!

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for being behind in informing you all of feature updates recently, and will endeavour to be more timely from now on.

In November, feature update 1.10.0 went live and a full list wasn't provided in the Site Announcement. In addition, 1.11.0 went was deployed a couple of weeks ago without a Site Announcement. The features now available are all listed further below.

Recently, a new notice thread was added to the ACC Noticeboard. It's called My Catalog - Welcome amiibo. The recent Welcome amiibo update to New Leaf has brought with it many items to the game - much more than was anticipated. We will update the ACC Noticeboard thread as we add items to the My Catalog section of ACC. Please click on the "Notify Me" button for the "My Catalog - Welcome amiibo" notice if you wish to be kept informed about new items added to the catalogue. Apologies for not adding many items thus far.

2016 has been a great year on ACC with collaboration between Staff and Members, and we hope to see that continue in 2017. To that end, we will soon be looking for Members to join another Special Projects Team - this time for the planning of April Fools' Day pranks. The current Special Projects Team for Game Guides has been great in helping finishing off some of the guides we needed to turn into static pages, and we will be bringing more guides to you in 2017.

The features deployed in 2016 were made possible only because of the Dev work done by ACWWFreakazoid, aldericon, AnnetteSR and GoldenCelebi. A huge thank you goes out to them for their outstanding commitment in bringing in new features and fixes despite the very old code.

And speaking of Devs, we still need more of them. If you are comfortable with coding, and are willing to learn and work with an ancient code, please be sure to apply for a Dev position via this page. Even if you don't wish to work with the old code, we'd still like to hear from you if you are willing to help rewrite ACC in a more modern language.

Once again, apologies for the delay in updating you of the feature deployments, and apologies for the delay in adding the Welcome amiibo items to My Catalog. We should be moving forward with the latter very soon. (Yes, sooner than the Bell Shop "soon").

Wherever you are, the Staff at ACC would like to wish you all a Happy New Year, and may 2017 bring you joy and luck.



Here are the features deployed recently. If you have any issues or questions pertaining to these features, please post on this thread.

1.10.0 - November
GameCube Tools Guide
- This is an update to an existing guide which was previously only about Golden Tools. We've improved upon the part about Golden Tools, and also added in useful information about the regular tools.

GameCube Villager Guide - The Villager Guide was also an existing guide and has been tidied up.

Images for New Leaf Welcome amiibo cards - You can find these by scrolling down the page and looking for the Gameplay section in the left margin. In that section you will see a link called amiibo Cards. Click on that link to be taken to a new page with two search options. The first search option is a drop down list, and you can choose New Leaf Welcome amiibo there. If you wish to look at all the cards available, ignore the second box called Name/Theme/Series and, click on the blue Search box.

New Leaf April Fool's Day Guide - This guide explains April Fools' Day in New Leaf, and contains only the birthday and favorite saying of the villagers because this is all we could verify in-game from the villager pictures. Please post on this thread on the Site Support board if you can verify the rest of the information, specifically special talent, dream job and number of siblings. Please also post there with the same type of information for the Welcome amiibo villagers and we can use that for a future Villager Guide.

New Leaf Harvest Festival Guide - This is a comprehensive guide to playing the Harvest Festival, and also provides helpful tips to those with new towns.

New Leaf Island Guide - This is an in-depth guide about the Island, starting with how to unlock it, and moving on to how to use it, what each Special Character is there for, what items are available to purchase with medals, and the amenities. The guide also contains very useful information for Club Tortimer users, giving plenty of advice on how to deal with different types of situations that may be encountered.  

New Leaf Island Extras Guide - The Island needed its own guide, and so did the Island Tours. However, since there is so much more information to share, we've added an Island Extras Guide too. This guide contains handy information on which tours you can go on to pick fruit and flowers, or catch bugs and fish, all of which you can bring back to your town to use, sell or donate.

New Leaf Island Tours Guide - This guide already existed in the Guides section but some of the information was updated and some was made clearer.

New Leaf Mushroom Guide - Everything you need to know about Mushrooms in New Leaf is in this guide. It covers the November mushrooms, and also the special tree stumps that attract mushrooms all year round.

New Leaf Snowpeople Guide - This is an extensive guide covering everything you need to know about building snowpeople and obtaining the special items that are on offer during snow season.


1.11.0 - December
Amendment to Adoption Page
- The option to be adopted by a Scout runs out after two weeks of joining. However, the top of the page still showed the word "Congratulations!". This has now changed to "We're Sorry!".

Link to profile from Friend Code requests - Whenever a friend code request is received, an alert appears in the left margin in the My ACC section. The actual alert is a link to one of the Friend Code pages. Once on this page, if you wishe to check the profile of the person requesting the Friend Code exchange the natural action to take is to click on the username. However, doing this used to lead only to the Wifi ratings for that person, and not their profile. Now, the username links to the profile of the Member, and the stars under the ratings section link to their ratings. In addition, the same changes have been applied to the My Friend Codes page where names are listed of all the people with whom friend codes have already been exchanged.

New Leaf Badge Guide - Everything you need to know about obtaining badges from Phineas is in this guide.

New Leaf Bug Guide - This is a snazzy new look for this type of guide, and the bug guides for the other Animal Crossing games will likely be updated in a similar style. This guide contains handy tables showing you which bugs are available in the game and when, what they look like, where they can be caught, and how much they sell for.

New Leaf Cookie Guide - This guide covers both types of cookies available in New Leaf - those from Redd, and those from the Nooklings. New cookies available in Welcome amiibo have also been added.  

New Leaf Festivale Guide - The Festivale Guide covers all aspects of playing Festivale, catching feathers, and obtaining the Pavé furniture items.

New Leaf Fish Guide - This is a new look for this type of guide, and the fish guides for the other Animal Crossing games will likely be updated in a similar style. This guide contains handy tables showing you which fish are available in the game and when, what they look like, where they can be caught, and how much they sell for.

New Leaf Island Tours Guide - This guide already existed in the Guides section and was a very long page to scroll through. A feature that was deployed in 1.9.0 was applied to this guide and this cuts out the lengthy page. Instead, the information is presented in smaller pieces and you can choose what is displayed by clicking on the buttons at the top of the guide.

New Leaf Seafood Guide -  This guide contains handy tables showing you which seafood are available in the game and when, what they look like, and how much they sell for.

New Leaf Shampoodle's Guide - This is the Shampoodle's Guide for New Leaf. Please note that a feature that was deployed in 1.9.0 is being used in this guide. Instead of having a long guide to scroll through, the information is presented in smaller pieces and you can choose what is displayed by clicking on the buttons at the top of the guide.

New Leaf Toy Day Guide - This guide contains everything you need to know to prepare for Toy Day, and ensure that your villagers receive the presents they most desire.

Welcome amiibo villager residents added to My Town - In the My Towns section of the site, you can show information pertinent to your town, and this includes showing which villagers reside there. We've added the Welcome amiibo villagers to the page so that you can show which ones are in your town. To show which villagers you have in your town, click on the My Towns link in the left margin. On the My Towns page, in the blue bar showing your town name you will see Town Edit Links » preceding the following links Info | Tune | Residents | Museum | PWPs | ACC Users. Click on Residents and you will be taken to a page listing all the residents that can possibly move into a New Leaf town. Select the residents in your town, then scroll down and click on Save Changes.

Wifi Rating Stars to be more obvious when clickable - Those who wifi usually get wifi ratings which are shown as orange stars. Some of these wifi ratings are clickable and take you to a wifi ratings page, but it hasn't always been obvious which stars are clickable. Now, the cursor changes from an arrow to a hand icon when hovering over clickable wifi rating stars.
