Do you guys have any regrets about your ACNL town? Like choosing a bad layout, placing a permanent PWP in a horrible spot, running too much and ruining your grass, or anything else you can think of!

My biggest ACNL regret by far is not using a face guide at the very beginning of the game. I ended up with the worst eyes, in my opinion, (the creepy, beady eyes with eyelashes on the bottom) and I ALWAYS wear glasses in a sad attempt to cover them up. I wear glasses in real life, so at least it feels natural.

What's your biggest ACNL regret?

I thought my first town was good, but that's more than 4 years ago. Now I can't stress enough how terrible it was. Basically, I thought it was a good idea to just make paths with lines of the colours on the normal "palette", and fill any spaces possible between them with flowers and perfect peach trees.

I'll be honest, I think my towns now are so much better. Basically I planned everything out as I wanted it, and I spent more than a week looking for my layout in Chukotka and just over 5 and a half days looking for my Ulan-Ude layout. I can't really say how much better they are without bragging but let's just say, that I think I've made good choices with everything so far.

julphi, you can change your eyes with colored contacts at shampoodle

I finally had to restart my old town, I started it playing it like WW, not realizing I could make my town into something so amazing with paths etc, so I placed all my pwps randomly but spaced out.
I also ran everywhere so my grass was dead in the most ugly ways,

I couldn't get it to regrow and couldn't move all the pwps so I finally reset the town for 16 mill.

love love love my new town!!!!!

I reset my new town for a few days trying to get  a set up I liked, only thing I don't like is my fruit is cherrys

still so happy I did.

I'm glad you guys are both happy with your new towns! The first town usually as its fair share of flaws.

Prompted_animal: I thought shampoodle could only change your eye color, not the eye design entirely? I'm fine with the color, it's the actual eyes that I don't like.

The game keeps putting fossils there

My 1st town my face Uggggghhhhhhh it looked like I was in a constant state of shock or surprise, I would just starebat it for hoooouuurrrrsss IRL. Once 2hrs had went by of me just staring o.O then I just played RF4 and later I wondered what happened to my 2hrs 0.o I did nothing, this happened a lot. Looked like my MC got smacked or something, Fantasy Life did not help either, nor SoS TroT
and my map, but that face looked like Star Wars & Stephen King had a party with George Romero

Being the nature-loving person who never played CF, You can probably guess that I didn't put down my paths BEFORE I planted my trees. Except by the time I was putting down paths, I had all my trees set to where I was finally achieving perfect town status and I didn't want to screw it up.

Yes, I know I can take an axe and shovel and replant all my trees but what's the fun in that?

Also: I have a secluded piece of beach that is only reachable via wetsuit. Oh well.

I don't care much about my grass ruin much though to stop running though. In fact I barely cared to put paths down. But it did irritate me to not have a few paths going through town, which of course are wonky and not straight at all (namingly the big path that goes vertically down the left side of town, that goes straight from the event plaza down to the ocean. I call it the main road).

My biggest regret would be time traveling and having my favorite villager, Rosie, move away. AND Felicity, whom I really love also. (I like cats) Although my friend got Rosie in her town, so she's saving her for me.

I kind of wish I put the campsite in a better spot. Slightly better.
Other than that, I love my town.
Since the update, I can take better care of my town, so no need to do any major work due to house placements screwing things over. I still have to plot reset due to one area in town being a dangerous area (can't place any PWP without having to remove some bushes), but it's something I'm willing to do.


I spent a good summer and then some really working on the layout in the first year. I did do a complete revamp over the following summer, due to how unorganized it was. I do not regret redoing the whole town without restarting. Redoing the town while maintaining the basic layout worked wonders and I used a photo from the work I was doing in an intro. High time I updated it.

Don’t really have any regrets at all except that my favorite villager Punchy moved out awhile ago. Other than that my town is perfectly designed. All the Public Work Projects are out and around and I’m happy how I designed it. Got the patterns all layed out and my house is designed pretty well so I don’t really got any regrets.

Sometimes I have villagers move into spots and try to destroy my paths but usually it’s easily fixable, so no problems at all. Just gotta lay out some more flowers and such and my town is perfect but all in all my town is perfectly fine.

I hate my town layout. Back when the game first came out though, I just did the first one that Rover offered me. I also covered my town with flowers. It’s very difficult to work around all of that.

My biggest regret honestly, is a combination of not playing as often and listening to other people.
Back when NL first came out everyone was so caught up in having a perfect layout etc. Which made me feel like I must have a perfect layout too. In turn, stressing about the things like that made it less enjoyable and I stopped playing. For me, stressing about perfection sucked the fun out of it. I now enjoy what I have and just have fun with it. I wished I had done that back when more people were still playing.

Aside from that, noting really I regret about my town.

My biggest regret (actually 2 of them):

My main town's layout - the river bends a lot, so that there is only a couple of places I can put bridges; so i only added 1 and I have 2 bridges instead of 3. My town is mainly fairly tale (i think its called?). Anyway i can't change my bridges from the original grey bridge, because one is too close to a permanent pwp.
I have had this town since this game first came out and don't want to delete it. So i put up with the bridges (but would love to have the ones that match other stuff).

My second town has a good layout, but i forgot when i started it to check what fruit it had. Took me a long time into the town to notice (or think about the disadvantage of it maybe?). The fruit is the same as my first town.I grow a lot of perfect fruit for money - no selling of perfect fruit in my second town . I like the town but am trying to decide whether to start all the work over again on the second town (I love the town otherwise).

My biggest ACNL regret is definitely restarting my town. There's something so magical about a clean slate that I just can't resist, some times. Especially when I am working on my "perfect" town, but I have been too busy to work on it for a while. I feel like I can't remember what my plan was and restart again!

Just one not finding out about ACC sooner
Oh and maybe having Lolly move out, but Maple replace her.

But I definitely wish I had known about ACC in my 1st town even my layout and my ridiculous face would have been better had I found out about this site sooner, even in my second town:-/

AWESOMEGAMER, Now that you've found ACC, how are you liking it?

It certainly has a lot of helpful guides, and there are also threads on the boards that I found very helpful!

One of the best things I've found is everyone here is so helpful when you have a question or problem, and someone always has some good advice.

MrsTerry77, I also regret restarting my very first town. But! I had done everything I had set out to do!

Starting over was like the first time I ever played, so many things I could do, and with previous knowledge, some things went much smoother. All in all, it's the excitement of starting a brand new town that attracts me.

Restarting my first town after achieving perfect town status.

But, it was worth it in the end!
I realized by starting over a new town, it keeps it fresh for me when I regain interest in playing on ACNL from time to time.

I was so displeased with the layout of my town. I really could not handle it and it made me want to play less. So, a couple of days ago I sold my town, pressed the wrong button, and now I need to start completely from scratch. And now, three days later, I'm still spending hours looking through maps with Rover, trying to find the perfect layout.

I've restarted a couple times.  The first was early into the game, because I was unhappy with my town layout.  Had a friend hold all of my belongings, found what I considered a better map at the time, and began anew.  

I kept that town for about a year, before deciding I could find an even better map.  I didn't bother saving anything before deleting this second town, because I was too anxious to begin again.  I spent multiple days resetting for hours at a time before settling on a landscape that had everything I was looking for:

1.  The event plaza, Re-Tail, and a single lake are situated in the upper left-hand corner; all lined-up perfectly horizontal.  I favor this, because it's a short trip for visitors who arrive on the train to sell to Reese, receive gifts from Isabelle, and now to visit the new campground too.  There are no lakes anywhere else.  I prefer that, because it leaves more room for PWPs, orchards, etc.

2.  Town Hall's placement is also at the top, but on the right side evenly located between the train station and the ramp for the beach.

3.  The river bends in such a way as to leave no awkward small sections of land anywhere, and ends in a south-facing waterfall which I personally find the most beautiful to view.  This also gave me one long main beach, which is great for ocean fishing and breeding hybrids.  The 'pirate beach', as some refer to it because you need a wet suit to reach it, is cool too.

4.  Only five rocks.

5.  Triangle grass, my favorite.

6.  Perfect cherries, also my favorite.  At the time, none of the people I hosted for/visited regularly had this type of perfect fruit.  (Some have since restarted, and a few of us have multiple towns.)

I've been playing this town, Vernon, since August 23rd, 2014.

The one regret I have is where I placed mayor Nicole's house.  It's in the upper right-hand corner, right next to the train tracks and beach ramp.  If I could move it, I'd place it evenly between Town Hall and the beach instead, but it doesn't bother me enough that I'd ever delete again.
