 ACC 2 Preview

December 2022:

The staff are excited to show off another part of ACC 2.0: the Pattern Maker! Please note that pictures shown are developmental and may not reflect the final website design.

ACC2 Pattern Maker interface.

The Pattern Maker has support for all 5 mainline Animal Crossing games, from GameCube to New Horizons. It also fully supports QR Codes, allowing you to upload them with ease into our system.

Once submitted, anyone viewing a pattern will be given multiple ways to copy it into their game.

If provided, a Design ID may be used in New Horizons to import the pattern into the game.

In addition, all patterns will attempt to generate a QR code when saved. If the pattern matches closely enough with New Leaf colors, a QR code will be provided and may be used in either New Leaf or New Horizons.

If neither method is available, the pattern can be manually copied over using the current method by choosing which colors to show in order to more easily copy the pattern to the game.

You will be able to find exactly the pattern you're looking for on the main search screen, whether it be by name, creator, or game.

We can't wait to see what wonderful designs you will make with us!

That's it for this preview (though keen observers might notice a non-pattern feature), but we hope to provide additional updates before the release of 2.0. Please stay tuned!

April 2022:

For this first update regarding ACC 2, we'll be focusing on towns. Towns will be accessible through the profile, so it will also allow for a look there. To begin with, here's a sample user with a few towns created.

ACC2 Towns page.

Before covering the towns, some of you may notice that we've added a new default avatar. Apologies to those that have gotten used to the current absence of any image. Making sure that everyone has some sort of image in their post as an avatar makes things look more consistent. You may also notice a move towards a new, slimmer logo to fit at the top. The current image is merely a prototype, but the final product will be something along its lines. Some of the design elements are also still a work in progress, like the brown tree background.

Next, the towns. We're still working on the layout of this page a bit. Obviously, it stretches rather far vertically at the moment, so most likely the layout will be altered to be more condensed. It's now possible to create a complete town for any game. Here's the form for creating a New Horizons town.

Many of you may also be wondering about maps. Here are the map creators for both New Leaf and New Horizons.

There are still a few touches here and there to be made. For example, bridges for New Leaf and some templates to start from for New Horizons to save having to fill in over 9000 squares.

That's it for towns, so look for the next update sometime around the end of May or early June. We're tentatively planning on showcasing the forums.
