I'm in the northern hemisphere, but I do like the idea of having an island on the other side of the world, full of kangaroos and koalas and Wart Jr. as a cane toad. Sydney's in one of my towns and she's always calling me a bogan anyway. And when your character is holding a tarantula it's more the size of a huntsman... Ugh...

I wonder if they'll remember to flip the moon upside-down? Will we see the milky way? Maybe I'm overthinking things.

Anyway, title, and what are your reasons? Mine is just for fun. I'll be the swagman camped down by the... pond, I guess for lack of a billabong.

I’ll be making one because I am in the Southern Hemisphere! My only concern is that it won’t be winter during Christmas so the Christmas lights around the town won’t be as pretty I might change my mind and make a Northern Hemisphere one just for that haha!

"I wonder if they'll remember to flip the moon upside-down?"
Wow, that'd be a nice little touch!

I will, because I am Australian and it's always a little weird playing in the snow in AC when it's smelting outside . But then again, Christmas/ Toy Day won't be the same without all the snow and bundling up...

Edit: Ahahah MayorLu we posted at the same time. Great minds think alike!

My subconscious has been expanding on this all day. I can't believe how creative (and how much I know about Australia) I got just with them announcing a southern hemisphere option. I've actually been mulling over this all day.

Shoot me some suggestions, please! Vesta will be my jumbuck. Aurora will represent the fairy penguins. So far I've got the koalas and kangaroos and Wart Jr., but I've remembered I ought to include alligators, horses for brumbies, an anteater for a spiny echidna, wolves for dingoes? I need birds, but which would be right? If only there were parrots... At least I can pretend Brewster's a big budgie. And would a dark-colored bear pass for a tasmanian devil?

"I might change my mind and make a Northern Hemisphere one just for that"
Maybe make another user and island? Even if it means you'll probably end up doing double duty, you can have both hemispheres.

"it's always a little weird playing in the snow in AC when it's smelting outside"
Hah, I actually like that. My thinking is "oh, wouldn't it be lovely to run through snowflakes right now..."

I'm in L.A. and it's usually hot during Christmas, so totally get you.

I wonder if it will be a choice when you start that you're stuck with or an option you can change as much as you want?

If you can change it I might do that occasionally in the winter/summer just to change things up.

I highly doubt that it will be possible to switch back and forth. It's not like you can move your island to a different location, after all, and I feel like it would defeat most of the purpose of seasonal changes if you could eliminate up to two seasons (one of winter/summer and one of spring/autumn) entirely.

You can already time travel. I'm hoping they put it in as an alternative to time traveling.

See, I'm hoping that they make it impossible to time travel altogether, but I'm not sure how easy that would be to implement without messing up other things.

I wouldn't really mind that but I think a ton of people hate it. If the new service area is open 24/7 then maybe they could do it as it wouldn't be too bad for people who usually play when stores are closed.

Wouldn't that require syncing it up with an online clock and therefore mean you could only play when you have an internet connection? I know some other games have done that but that would be really annoying.

"I wouldn't really mind that but I think a ton of people hate it."
To be honest, I wouldn't mind time travel that much if its effects were prevented from spreading to my game. That could be achieved by forcing every player upon starting their game to choose whether they want to be a "time traveler" or a "non-time traveler." The game would then disallow any trades or other economic exchanges between the two groups, and would prevent non-time travelers from visiting the towns of time travelers. That way I could do whatever I wanted with other players without having to worry about ending up with items that were originally obtained illegitimately.
"Wouldn't that require syncing it up with an online clock and therefore mean you could only play when you have an internet connection? I know some other games have done that but that would be really annoying."
That's why I was saying that it might not be doable logistically. If it's possible for the game to keep time accurately and not be susceptible to meddling by humans, then I suppose they could only require an Internet connection when you first set up the town, although even that could be pretty annoying for some people.

Welp, with the whole one island per console thing, I've had to temper my plans, but as I'm planning on getting a second system, I'll still have a southern hemisphere island if it's an option. Someone on here pointed out to me that they hope it's not locked to your console's country. I still think it makes sense to have it an option as you're on a package deal.

But if they're going to force only one island per console, then it'd be nice to have it a switchable option. It would also be good to have for people who won't or can't do a Nintendo Online Subscription and want to play around in a different season without changing the clock or just experience the novelty of having a hot Toy Day. Maybe catch that critter you accidentally missed a little earlier.

707penguin: I'm absolutely against not allowing time-travel at all. You may have time to do events like Harvest Festival and Toy Day on the day, but I sure don't. It's also unfair to kids who have a limited time to play and people who do shift work.
