While some Animal Crossing New Horizons players have already constructed a vast metropolis, many newer players still have much more deserted island vibes and this starting guide will have five tips to help build up new islands.
5 Tips for New Animal Crossing New Horizons Players
1. Fill the Museum
The first of every type of bug and fish that you catch should go to the museum because it's a nice way to visually improve the museum experience, and when you visit the museum, you will be able to reflect on everything you've caught in a more fulfilling way than scrolling through the Critterpedia.
2. Pay Your Debt
Paying off your debt is the core goal of the game. Upgrading your house as much as possible and being able to customize it is a lot of fun. It also increases your storage drastically so you can hold onto bugs and fish that you like and keep all your extra crafting materials.
3. DIYs are King
DIYs are a great way to be able to decorate cheaply. One DIY recipe can be found on the beach every day. You can also buy DIYs from the shop for bells or through the terminal in Nook's tent and eventually town hall using Nook Miles. Villagers will sometimes craft DIYs and will give the recipe to you if you talk to them.
4. Collect Everything
Resources are a very important part of Animal Crossing New Horizons because they are essential for crafting tools and furniture. It's important to harvest materials without breaking rocks or chopping down trees because it will take a few days for them to return. Don't forget to shake non-fruit trees everyday for free furniture items.
5. Keep Crafting Ingredients
Selling weeds may seem like all there is to do with them, but it isn't. And by waiting to get Leif's shop, you can sell them for much more money. Selling crafting ingredients in general is a bad idea because you get more money by crafting them into something and then selling the crafted items.
