I was today years old when I learned the best hack for farming balloons....

See here

I'm gonna give it a try tomorrow. It sounds promising, though

ooh this looks much more promising than the "go inside and come out at the right time" trick (I could never get it to work reliably so I would just wait on the beach)

if this trick works for me I might try getting extra DIYs to help out friends as well

Ayyy welldone foamblaster for the 5* rank!!

For me, I just run up and down the beach at every 5 minutes past and every 10 minutes past the hour. If a balloon spawns for that section of time, you'll see it. Good luck, either way

Interesting.... item to use. lol It's like a boarder wall. There must be something else that can be used? But good idea anyway!

tujunga It's the height of the jail bars, not the aesthetics, that made me decide to use it. I think the climbing wall that you can order via Nook shopping on your phone is another option

The jail bars worked. I used them instead of the climbing wall as they were essentially free (made with resources) and I could make them all at once.  I only lined the one beach that balloons go over first during the day. I will remove and sell them soon...

Terence, see my first post. TL;DR: Line east and west coastline with either jail bars or climbing walls to keep balloons from floating horizontally across your island. They''ll instead float down vertically along the constructed wall.

I wish I could advise you regarding getting a five star island, but it was basically luck... Sorry!

Napalmman, 5 Stars are not that hard to manage, provided you are ready to put some space in it...

I found it important to actually have 10 Villagers on the island, and the nook shop developed to the max. After that, it seems a matter of decoration... I read somewhere that having about 100 trees help (i am counting palm trees here too), having some fences here, some flowers there. The occasional object is good too, and no items should lie around (as in: dropped items, not placed items, the latter counts as decoration again). Weeding also helps.

After that, actually listening to Isabelle (to a degree of course) should make it if you don´t have 5 stars already at this point.
