Just like in real life, in AC:CF, you are able to get a tan, with
varying degrees of dark colors!
How to Get a Tan
Tanning in AC:CF is much like tanning in the real world; simply go to
the beach and walk in the sun for long time. Note:
The tan will come in the next day, NOT immediately.
you finally got a tan, it will go down a shade every day, unless you
happen to be on the beach everyday. Then it will either stay the same
shade or get darker. Note: Your tan will disappear
every day a
little bit if you haven't been walking on the beach that day and will
also disappear slowly on rainy days.
You can get a tan from June
16th - September 15th. The game has to have a clear sky outside and it
must be during daylight hours (8 AM - 5 PM). Note:
The only thing that stops a tan is an umbrella.
second option to get a tan is to use a Mii Mask from Shampoodle's. If
your Mii Mask is in a dark color (you have to make it that way), you
will automatically have a tan.
Tip: To know if you're
actually tanning, make a Plain Pattern that is skin colored (Palette
10/16, below) and wear it as a shirt, in the sun. As you tan, you will
start noticing your skin is becoming darker than the shirt, and it will
become very noticeable after about 2-3 hours.
Removing a Tan
it's quite easy to get a tan, it's much harder to get rid of a tan. To
get back to your normal color, there are several ways:
1) Just don't play your AC:CF game and it will be gone within a few days
2) If you want to play and go outside, go out with an umbrella
3) Don't go out during daylight
4) Start the game and then just stay in your house
5) Time Traveling to the future (at least 3-4 days)
Note: All of these processes will take several days,
and hats WILL NOT stop tans.
discovered is if you select a Mii with a tan, your arms will change
into that same color. You can find skin colors back in Palette 10/16
