Random thoughts thread. (New Horizons)

I at times have contempt for the formula which calculates the villager species you are likely to find while island hopping.

I understand why it is the way it is because if it was the opposite way around you would almost never find particular kinds of villagers. Namely the octopus, cow and bull villagers.

I wonder if they will keep this function in the next game but I feel like it would depend mostly on the game setting. I doubt it will be another island setting, hopefully it will be a return to the town with stronger connections to city life than CF and NL.

I hope so too. They really need to blend some of the HHP/HHD aspects into the main game, mainly the outdoor editing and facilities. I'd love me shops that aren't limited to just Nook's and Able's.
 
Okay guys, I only noticed this now, I might cry🥹

It's 12 in the morning, I'm hunting for the horned hercules...and I mistook a horned atlas for one and caught it. x_x It really goes to show how desparate I am to catch the horned hercules after I accidentally scared one a few days ago.
 
I have been searching for a Golden Stag for a week now. I finally saw one, and forgot that my bug net broke this morning when I was catching bugs for Flick. I went from super excited, to super disappointed in about a second and a half lol
 
A few features that I predict will be in the next game (not just hope):
  • Step-up platforms for interior designing (like what Nook’s Cranny had)
  • A few facilities in the main town you can change the interior design (you can do that to villager houses in ACNH). You could even do that to Timmy’s and Tommy’s store.
  • Adjustable room sizes for the player house
  • Custom doors, windows, and curtains for the inside (like Happy Home Designer had).
  • Pre-made wall panels that resemble the glow-in-the-dark stickers.
  • Gates (as part of the fences).
 
I looked at island inspiration photos on Pinterest, and let's just say that I really want to get my second island going again. I know I've made progress in certain areas, but I maaaay want to redo a few others. Ugh; terraforming and moving buildings blows, especially if you're a perfectionist like me.

I don't plan on restarting, as (A). My Resident Services is lined up perfectly with the airport entrance, and (B). I've built up a catalog to repurchase stuff. Terraforming will be the way to go.
 
My sister got back to playing New Horizons yesterday.

She caught a lot of fish, including a squid and a sea bass. I wanted her to sell the squid, but she initially declined because…get this: she wanted to “troll” people by squirting ink on them with it. That obviously isn’t possible in this game, girl. Thankfully when I told her that she decided to sell it.

Same for the sea bass, she didn’t want to sell it at first because she wanted to eat it raw. I had to tell her that she could cook the bass later in the game and that there were common so she sold that too. Then I taught her about eating fruits and using the power you get from them to destroy rocks and dig up trees.
 
The fish part of my museum is complete! Woo-hoo!

I wish you could squirt ink at other villagers lol. I remember when jacksepticeye played New Horizons, he kept the squid as a pet, then the next day it was gone. Shari told him she was enjoying the “new foods” on the island, and since the squid went missing, he thought she was saying she broke into his house and ate his squid. 😭
It’s far-fetched but the dialogue made it sound like the writers were up to something lol.
