StarFall History – Public Works Project Unlock History

Last time, I went over the animals that lived in StarFall, either that I journalized properly or that was in my post-history. I was going to go over the PWPs in my town, but I need to go over what I have unlocked for StarFall. And to go over that, I need to list what animals lived in StarFall, which I got done, so I’ll be ready for the PWP unlock history.

Each day, only one PWP was suggested, except for some days, when two are suggested. I will go over the order they were unlocked, the date they were unlocked (in-game), and the animals that suggested them. The ones in bold are major PWPs as the ones not emphasized are minor PWPs. The next part will discuss what I was looking for and other fascinating projects.

History of Unlocks

PWP Unlocks

I didn’t receive a single PWP suggestion until the first PWP was built. Kaylee took office on January 2nd, 2014. On January 3rd, she started to work on getting her permit. On the 4th, she got a 100% approval rating. And on the 5th, she finally got her permit. It wasn’t until the 10th when she worked on her very first project. If you want to know what I unlocked, here is the list:

What I was looking for

Penny 02

Although I liked how I got 46 PWPs in my projectory, only 19 of them were what I was looking for. 22 of them were in use in my town, even if they weren’t originally going to be there.

Here are the 19 PWPs I was looking for that got unlocked, and they won’t be in any specific order:

  • Museum Renovation
  • Fortune Teller’s Shop
  • Dream Suite
  • Cafe
  • Police Station
  • Train Station Renovation
  • Town Hall Renovation
  • Modern Bench
  • Modern Streetlight
  • Modern Clock
  • Modern Bridge
  • Illuminated Arch
  • Illuminated Clock
  • Illuminated Heart
  • Illuminated Tree
  • Lighthouse
  • Tower
  • Windmill
  • Solar Panel

The three extra PWPs I used were the stone tablet, the wooden bench, and the flower clock. Originally, they weren’t going to be placed in StarFall, but due to some loopholes and not at the quota, I decided to add a few more PWPs. The Flower Clock was a result of not having 30 PWPs. There was a loophole that would allow animals to move south of the river, so I built a wooden bench to prevent that. The other possibility of an animal moving south of the river was also blocked, thanks to the stone tablet.

The reason why I had mostly modern themed PWPs is because I wanted StarFall to be a Modern themed town. The North Side of the river was to fit the Modern motif as the South Side of the river had all the illuminated projects. The major PWPs, the lighthouse, windmill, tower, and solar panel were also on my wanted list.

Other interesting stories

  • The Train Station Renovation project was unlocked early because I used Belcroft as my host town for StarFall.
  • I didn’t expect the topiaries to be unlocked due to how easy weeds can grow, but I got lucky and unlocked all three topiaries.
  • The traffic signal, wind turbine, cube sculpture, and parabolic antenna were all interesting to me, but they were neither in use nor were they on my wanted list.
  • I was stuck in the month of March for a while because I was busy trying to unlock all of the PWPs I wanted, but it took a while. I even helped out another AC player get her Spider Crab because I was still in March.

Next week, I will cover information on the whole PWP history.

StarFall History – Villager History

Today is the day I officially start the History of StarFall. Last summer, I was journalizing day by day. Although the official data-by-day was erased, I did put them into ledgers, based on order. Each week, I will go over a new ledger. I have posted them on Bell Tree before, but not here.

Since I was time traveling, the in-game dates do not match the real life dates. Time traveling does make me an illegitimate player, but it makes things faster. I don’t like to spend all year completing my town. Patience is a key factor, but I prefer doing things in the short run. Therefore, the dates of what I did in ACNL are for in-game time. Most of the stuff in real time were in the summer months.

Today, I will go over the order of all the animals that lived in StarFall, including both journalized and post-journalized.

Overview

Animal History

StarFall was created on June 18th, 2014, but the day it was set to begin is January 2nd, 2014. My original villagers (or starting villagers) were:

  • Freya
  • Nate
  • Hamlet
  • Daisy
  • Victoria

After publishing my dream town, I had the following villagers:

  • Lobo
  • Deena
  • Blaire
  • Puddles
  • Katt
  • Keaton
  • Roald
  • Walker
  • Aurora

After first update, these were my villagers:

  • Lobo
  • Blaire
  • Katt
  • Keaton
  • Roald
  • Walker
  • Aurora
  • Bubbles
  • Ava
  • Pierce

Now, I don’t pay much attention to my villagers. Ever since Keaton moved out, I stopped tracking who lived in my town. And I’m beginning to forget who moved in and in what order. If I could time travel back in real life, the one thing I would prevent is having Keaton (or any of my villagers move). But at least I got what I journalized before my first (and only) update). Right now, it’s on the dream town servers. To keep it up there, I would like more visits.

The First Ten

For the first two months in ACNL time, I only stuck with ten villagers. Although one of them was in boxes on the last day of February, no villager officially moved out until March. For a recall, my first five villagers were:

  • Freya
  • Nate
  • Hamlet
  • Daisy
  • Victoria

After them, I had the following move in:

  • Olaf – 1/4/2014
  • Vladimir – 1/6/2014
  • Canberra – 1/8/2014
  • Apollo – 1/10/2014
  • Cesar – 1/20/2014

Although Cesar was picked up from Belcroft, these were my first ten villagers. Alongside with the original ten were my two alternative (and favorite) villagers, Jenny and Penny. Jenny started her residence on January 5th while Penny started hers on January 7th. Neither of them moved out. The first ten animal villagers did stay completely in January and February, but they are all gone before I started publishing my dream town. Notice that the order I put them were the order I had them. I’ll go over their departure stories:

  • Nate – packed on 2/28, moved on 3/1: Nate was the first villager Kaylee ever talked to, but was also the first villager to move out of StarFall. On his last day before packing up, he suggested a PWP, the Jungle Gym. He stayed throughout the entire snow season StarFall started under.
  • Freya – packed on 3/12, moved on 3/13: Back in StarFall’s earliest days, I had most of the PWPs suggest. Of all the villagers, Freya made the most contributions, including the Lighthouse, Modern Bridge, and Police Station. I was specifically looking for the Tower, Illuminated Arch, and the PWPs under the Modern motif, and only a Snooty villager would suggest them. However, she became the second to move out.
  • Cesar – packed on 3/21, moved on 3/22: Cesar may be the last villager of the first ten to move in, but was the first one of the first ten that isn’t one of my starting villagers to move out. I needed him out of my town. I was going to build a bridge in this one area, but since he was in the way, I had no choice but to kick him out. It was hard since he was the most recent villager to move in. After the departures of Nate and Freya (and Broccolo’s move-in), Cesar was ready to go. He did not warn me that he was moving, so I was as lucky as a gambler who won the jackpot after the bet that made him bankrupt.
  • Apollo – packed on 3/29, moved on 3/30: Apollo was the first villager to be of a duplicate personality. Amazingly, none of my starting villagers were Cranky villagers, but the personality that shown up the most in the first ten were Cranky villagers. I planned on having a campsite area in the northern part of the river, and Freya and Apollo were cranky villagers. When they were gone, I finally had enough room for the extended Campsite area.
  • Canberra – packed on 4/24, moved on 4/25: Canberra was the first Uchi villager in StarFall, but also the first Uchi villager to move into Belcroft. So for two towns in a row, she was my first Uchi villager. It turns out that I didn’t need her as much. She did what she could do. She suggested the Wooden Bench and Windmill, which were vital to StarFall. Canberra was also the last villager to move before T&T Mart expanded (and before the ordinance switch to Beautiful Town).
  • Vladimir – packed on 5/27, moved on 5/28: Vladimir did a good job on staying in StarFall until T.I.Y. opened its doors in StarFall. He actually stayed through all four Nookling renovations I had in StarFall (and no, I chose not to have the Emporium).
  • Victoria – packed on 6/6, moved on 6/7: After all of the secondary villagers of the first ten (besides Olaf) moved out, more of the starting villagers continued to move out. Victoria was my least favorite of the starting villagers for asking useless questions when I was using the diving trick (this is a prime example of the complaint over the farming for PWPs). She did at least suggest the illuminated projects I needed before her move.
  • Hamlet – packed on 6/14, moved on 6/15: Yep, one of the villagers on the front cover of ACNL was also one of my starting villagers. Despite making contributions to the PWP list, I did not use any PWPs he suggested. After his move, my town was still a bit yellow thanks to Isabelle. An amazing fact was that Hamlet was the first villager to move out after Lobo, the oldest villager to be in my dream town, moved in.
  • Olaf – packed on 7/9, moved on 7/10: Aside to the starting villagers, Olaf was the first villager to move into StarFall (even before Jenny and Penny). Since he stayed for the first six months, first of the secondary villagers to move in and the last of the secondary villagers to move out, he held StarFall’s history very well. If any animal carried the sphere of beginnings and chained it onto the next villager, Lobo would be the carrier of the sphere Olaf had.
  • Daisy – packed on 10/2, moved on 10/3: Of the starting five villagers, Daisy was the last one to move out. Not only she was the last remaining villager from the first ten, but also the last remaining villager of the first five. As soon as she moved away, Kaylee, Jenny, and Penny were the only ones left to have lived in StarFall for the first two months.

Subsequent Villagers

After Nate and Freya left, I started to pick up the next generation of villagers. The first one to move in was Broccolo, which I voided (and plot resetted) from someone online person’s town. Then I had Elise. Here is the full guide of what I had before I published my dream town:

  • #11 – Broccolo – moved in on 3/16, moved out on 10/13: Just like Daisy and Olaf, Broccolo stayed for a pretty long time while being the first one of his/her kind to move in.
  • #12 – Elise – moved in on 3/24, moved out on 8/1
  • #13 – Teddy – moved in on 4/4, moved out on 5/11: Teddy was the first subsequent villager to move out.
  • #14 – Kitt – moved in on 4/27, moved out on 6/27
  • #15 – Muffy – moved in on 5/16, moved out on 8/25
  • #16 – Annabelle – moved in on 6/1, moved out on 7/25
  • #17 – Lobo – moved in on 6/11: Lobo was the first of the villagers that lived in my dream town to move in. On the StarFall Press, there is a picture in the description. I had nine villagers there. Lobo was one of them.
  • #18 – Bluebear – moved in on 6/18, moved out on 8/18
  • #19 – Rory – moved in on 7/1, moved out on 7/19
  • #20 – Hamphrey – moved in on 7/14, moved out on 10/15
  • #21 – Ken – moved in on 7/22, moved out on 9/24
  • #22 – Boone – moved in on 7/29, moved out on 9/17
  • #23 – Deena – moved in on 8/6*
  • #24 – Blaire – moved in on 8/22
  • #25 – Puddles – moved in on 8/27*
  • #26 – Katt – moved in on 9/19
  • #27 – Jay – moved in on 9/26, moved out on 11/4: Jay was the last subsequent villager to move out before I published my dream town.
  • #28 – Keaton – moved in on 10/5: In case if you’re wondering, Keaton was the first villager to move out after my most recent update on my dream town.
  • #29 – Roald – moved in on 10/10
  • #30 – Walker – moved in on 10/17
  • #31 – Aurora – moved in on 11/1

And that concludes the list of who lived in my town before I published my dream town. It started to get messy after I picked up a voided Prince (which was the worst case of picking up voided villagers). Since he moved in and wrecked my campsite area, this messed up my villager tracking. I was forced to get rid of some villagers I already had before. The one with asterisks were actually in my first dream town, but not after the first update. Puddles moved first. After her, it was Deena. I was able to get rid of Prince after Puddles and Deena moved out. Here is the order (without the moving dates since it scrambled my timeline):

  • #32 – Prince
  • #33 – Bubbles
  • #34 – Ava
  • #35 – Pierce

Post History tracking

I will go over more of my StarFall post-history very late, but from what I can remember, I had some of my villagers moving out. Here is the order of which animals moved out (as from my first dream town update to today):

  • Keaton
  • Bubbles
  • Blaire
  • Aurora
  • Roald
  • Walker
  • Lobo
  • Pierce

And here are the villagers I remembered having after my update (some are not in my town anymore):

  • #36 – Marshal
  • #37 – Agent S
  • #38 – Astrid
  • #39 – Lily
  • #40 – Pietro
  • #41 – Gloria
  • #42 – Diva
  • #43 – Vesta
  • #44 – Alfonso
  • #45 – Annalise

Full Tracking

Finally, I will go over the full list of animals that ever lived in StarFall. The ones with dates were the ones I had before I published my dream town. The ones without dates were the poorly tracked ones.

StarFall History – The Transition

We are now at the end of StarFall’s prehistory. I went over Westport and Belcroft. Last week, I did mention that I deleted Belcroft. That is true, but I only kept Belcroft up until late June. You will see more about the transition between Belcroft and StarFall. You will also see how I planned StarFall before I got my 3DS XL.

Planning StarFall

I didn’t think about starting a new town until January 2014, but I officially came up with the idea at the end of May. In fact, at the beginning, I was thinking about having two towns. One was going to be an all girls town while the other was going to be an all boys town. One of the two towns was going to be called StarFall as the other was going to be VeloCity. The first one was a combination of the fall theme and the sci-fi theme as the other was named after a term in physics, velocity, but only as a pun name.

The all-girls town was going to be called StarFall. My character names in mind were Kaylee, Jenny, Penny, and Holly. Kaylee’s house was going to be a space themed house, Jenny’s was going to be a fall themed house, Penny’s was going to be winter-themed, and Holly was going to have a regular house. The other town, VeloCity, was going to have only boys, with the names of Hawk, Kenny, Lenny, and Turtle. Hawk’s house was going to be a luxurious house, Kenny’s was going to be a restaurant, Lenny’s was going to be a hotel, and Turtle was going to have a Zen house. StarFall was going to be a modern themed town with illuminated projects as VeloCity was going to be a regular town with a huge park. But fate had different plans. I could only do one town. I could run the all-boys town, but I think the girls are prettier, so I decided to do only StarFall. And then, when I learned about the reset villager trick, I realized that I can have only have three characters. So what remains were Kaylee, Jenny, and Penny.

When I was thinking about what museum donations to make, I would have Kaylee do all of the fossils. She can also catch both the insects and the water creatures. Picking between Jenny and Penny, whoever owns the fall house must exclusively catch insects so the crickets can be in the forest room as fish can be stored in the cabin room of the winter house. I later decided that Jenny was going to be the bug hunter as Penny is the fisher. And since I can have only three characters, Kaylee, Jenny, and Penny had the equal share of art donations.

Item Gathering

The first time I thought of deleting my town of Belcroft was after I got 100 million Bells for the second time. Due to my dying 3DS and dream town inspirations, having a new town is what I needed. The first thing I did was that I took out all the items I was going to transfer to StarFall before I delete the other characters. My last three characters were deleted, leaving Kaylee on her own again. The first step in planning was deciding character design. I planned on having three girls with the same eye shape. As for the hair coloring, Kaylee would still keep her brown hair and brown eyes.

Kaylee

Yep, in all three of my towns, Kaylee had the same hairstyle and hair color all along. The four leaf clover wasn’t there until late in Westport. Since they were all going to have the same eyes and hairstyle, I had to recolor Kaylee’s from Belcroft to give me a sneak peek of what the characters were going to look like, including…

Jenny

Jenny, and…

Penny

Penny.

The reason why I wanted to keep those eyes were because they were the best one in the game, not that I’m too lazy to find the eyes I wanted. I also decided on what clothes for the girls to wear. Kaylee was going to keep the schoolgirl outfit she had in late Belcroft.

StarFall 08 (Crossroads)

I also liked the pro-design dress I made for her back in Westport, so that was going to be remade in StarFall as well.

Kaylee 03

Sorry if I don’t have any pictures of what she actually looked like back in Westport, but these were part of StarFall too. I had ideas for the paths as well.

Now onto the items history. For the first two weeks of June, I was trying to gather items from the Creepy Theme, Ice Series, Mush Series, Ski Theme, and Snowman Series. The Snowman Series was too hard to the point I had to get it from some other members online. But the others I was able to get. The balloons were also something I needed to get online. I had some other handicaps as well. One was that I had to order all of the orderable furniture, carpets, and wallpaper so I can have the Kaylee from StarFall catalog them to help get her badges. I also had to get the Saharah carpets and legit works of art from Redd (all 33 of them) before creating the town of StarFall so I don’t have to time travel back and fort for a real work of art. Along with the orderable items, I bought everything GracieGrace sold so I don’t have to worry about cataloging for GracieGrace items in other towns. One of my plans was to never have the Emporium expansion of the Nooklings.

After picking up all the Ski items and Snowtyke items, I had no more items to gather, so I was ready to create StarFall. The first layout I had was bad, but the second layout was great. Either way, I got cherry trees, which I wanted to be my town fruit.

Two Town Era

On June 18th, 2014, StarFall was finally created. I was even journalizing and had Jenny and Penny, but Belcroft was still up. I did not want to delete my town until I got all what I needed. My focuses as I had Belcroft were cataloging, weeding, and train station visits so I can have the Train Station renovation PWP unlocked. Even if I do have StarFall working well, I still needed to use Belcroft for all of my goals.

When I got the Train Station renovation project unlocked, it was time for me to delete Belcroft. My town of StarFall was fully prepared, but there was a lot of work that was needed to be done. For the next 15 weeks, I will explain what I did that built up to my town every Tuesday. At the same time, Belcroft was deleted, and my old 3DS was done.

And that concludes the prehistory of StarFall. I could talk about my experience in past games, but that was so long that I can’t even rememer as this has nothing to do with my town of StarFall. Next Tuesday, the history of StarFall will begin.

StarFall History – History of Belcroft

Last week, I went over the history of my very first town in ACNL. Now I’m ready to move to the next town – Belcroft. The town of Belcroft was similar to Westport, but helped bridge into StarFall. Some of the items I gathered while I was playing ACNL in Belcroft were moved on to StarFall. Unlike Westport, I actually liked Belcroft, but that one didn’t even last a year. After playing online with others, picking up inspirations from other people, Belcroft was the next to fall. In fact, even in January, I was considering on starting a new town.

Now I am going over more on my town of Belcroft. I will go over the characters, how I planned it, and a few other interesting stuff.

Characters

I was never aware of the Reset Villager Trick until the road to deletion of Belcroft, so once again, I had four characters. Two male, and two female. The last two had ABA eyes. The first two had the most popular eyes (AAA) and least popular eyes (CBA). There was only one blonde, but three brunettes. Here we go:

Kaylee:

Since Kaylee was my best character in Westport, I decided that I was gonna recreate her. She had a few similarities. I kept the same fashion preference from where I left off from in Westport (red argyle shirt, black formal pants, black tights, black loafers, and four leaf clover). Her birthday was rather October 1st (same as the one in StarFall) than July 20th. At first, she had a mix of three futuristic rooms, a grand lobby, and the Gorgeous room. I even transferred the items over. I forgot what the basement was for, but I remembered that I had something. Later on, I changed her a bit. She later became some 50’s schoolgirl (like what we see now) with an all-futuristic house. Her house was later known as the Space Castle.

Since I originally decided to have only one character, Kaylee did all the work in Belcroft. She did the donations, exhibit designs, PWPs, and emotions. She was a one woman army who fought against incompletion, by decorating the town. She’s still even my best character in Belcroft. Her house was located near the sea cliff and in front of the waterfall lake. She was on the south side of the river rather than the north side.

Hawk:

Until the last three months of having Belcroft, I only had one character. My later plan was to have four characters again. Hawk was the Victorian man. His house was on the same side of the river as Kaylee’s house. Every room in his house follows the Gorgeous theme. Left room was a guest room, middle room was the lobby, basement was the living room, right room was the basement, back room was the kitchen, and top room was his bedroom. He lived close to the secluded beach on the south side of the river.

Morgan:

While Hawk had the Gorgeous house, Morgan had a similar concept. Everything in his house was sweets. The exterior parts are all part of the sweets theme. Top room was his bedroom, basement was a bar, left room was the dining room, middle room was the lobby, back room was the living room, and right room was the guest room. He was a cross dresser, but don’t ask me about it. I’m not gay. His house was north of the river, and close to the Train Station.

Jordan:

My last character was a girl. She had the same hairstyle as Jenny’s, but only with the ABA eyes (rather than the AAA eyes). Her house was supposed to be a regular house. Left room was the green room, right was the blue, center was the plaza, basement was a bathroom and laundry room, top room was a modern room, and the back room was almost the same as Jenny’s basement (we’ll go over more in the future, if you want to see what it looked like, visit my dream town). Jordan was my girly girl, as she dressed girly.

Planning (2013)

Belcroft was created on October 22nd, 2013. That time, I tried searching for a good map rather than a bad map like Westport’s. What I wanted that time is to not repeat some of the same mistakes I did in Westport. Kaylee’s house was located in the southwest corner of town. The beaches were on the east again. The north side of the river is significantly bigger than the south, which made me want to keep the south side as a private side of the river for Kaylee. Most of the projects were placed there. I also had a host town to hold onto my stuff from Westport that I want to carry to Belcroft. Then I transferred them to Belcroft.

Mistakes that I didn’t want to repeat:

  • To cancel a major project ceremony (or finish donations before a holiday)
  • To build T&T Emporium (failed)
  • To have more than one character (success in 2013, failed in 2014)
  • To time travel back and forth excessively (failed)
  • To scramble the timeline (like when a later T&T Expansion is older than an earlier one)
  • To delete my town (ultimately failed)

To avoid messing up the timeline, I started out on January 8th, 2013 and only time traveled forwards. I used the diving trick to gather more PWPs. What I wanted are the lighthouse, tower, windmill, illuminated arch, illuminated clock, and flower clock. I got a few more as well. The Cafe was built on the peninsula on the south side of the river. Police Station was in the middle of the north side of the river. Campsite was in front of town hall. Re-Tail was in the same location it was at in Westport. And the Plaza was on the north side of the river. One cool PWP I got was a camping cot, and I placed it next to the campsite.

The perfect apple trees were all south of the river, while all the other trees were north of the river. Unlike last town where I wanted animals on both sides of the river, I wanted all animals on the north side of the river. Unlike StarFall, there were some to begin with. The worst house plot was when one animal moved right in front of a bridge. After that, it was over.

Belcroft was a better planned town than Westport, but my interest in ACNL wasn’t very high either. At the end of 2013, I decided to take a break, but I returned two days after my birthday.

Planning (2014)

I started moving away from the whole Westport thing, but I had to re-do my town a bit. As I successfully kept animals away from moving south of the river, I had to re-landscape the town and move some projects. I also had to make new characters as I changed my mind where I originally wanted one. I had Caroline at the end of 2013, but I had to let her go later. I even got her pic, which was the first time in Animal Crossing history that I got an animal pic by doing very well. Kaylee turned from what she was like in Westport to a precursor of what she is in StarFall. Her house is the same as what I have now, and so are her outfits.

Before I made the other three characters, my focus was on cataloging and gathering 100 million Bells. I was playing alone until later when I joined GameFAQ’s community for help on my town. After getting 100 million Bells, I created three new characters and decorated their houses. Unfortunately, they only lasted a month. Since Kaylee did all the work, all of my alts were dummy characters.

Deletion

Some time in June (I don’t remember), I ended up deleting Belcroft, a little more than a year after I created Westport. I stopped using the 3DS that had Westport and Belcroft since then. To learn more about the deletion of Belcroft, stay tuned for next Tuesday as I go over preparation history, which is the end of the prehistory of StarFall.

StarFall History – History of Westport

So now I am done with sharing about my town’s characters and locations, it’s time to go back to when this all started. On my first entry on StarFall’s history, I talked about where I came up with the idea, but for now, I will begin its pre-history. You know what the first thing American History textbooks cover, right? The first subject isn’t the American Revolution, Colonial Era, or even the Age of Exploration. It’s the pre-Columbian era they go over first. In the StarFall History, the first subject would be on the history of my very first town, the History of Westport. Even if it has nothing to do with StarFall, I would go over how I progressed through and how I became a better town designer.

If you want to know, I’ve been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf since June 10th, 2013, even though there were a few days I didn’t play ACNL on. In fact, I had two towns in ACNL before I had the town of StarFall. And just like what I said a few weeks ago, I’ve been playing Animal Crossing since the year of 2003. I’ve been playing AC for a while now, but I’m only going to cover my two towns I had before I created StarFall. My first two towns were on another 3DS system than what StarFall had. My first town is Westport. My second town is Belcroft.

Summary

Back when ACNL first came out in the United States, I made a town called Westport. It only lasted four months before I made a new town. The problem is, I did not like Westport. It was a poorly planned town, and due to my lack of knowledge and online play back then, I didn’t do well on Westport. I did enjoy playing AC at the time, but it wasn’t a good town. In this entry, I will go over who lived in my town, how I planned my town, why I deleted my town, and other interesting bits.

Characters

Unaware of plot resetting at the time, I chose to have only four characters in Westport. Two of them were male, and the other two were female. Even as a person who liked blondes, all of my characters had brown hair and ABA eyes or AAA eyes. Anyway, here are the four human characters of Westport:

Ferry:

Ferry is my first character ever in ACNL. If you want to know where I came up with that name, Ferry is short for Ferrington. The name Ferrington was the name of a baby bird from some comics I made as a teenager called Bird City. Ferrington was a gray feathered baby bird who always got humiliated in most of the Bird City comics he was in. I’m not going any further into this since I prefer to keep it private, but what got me naming my mayor in ACNL Ferrington was that the other work I used that name in was a book I tried writing in 2013 that never got published. It was called City of the Atmosphere, which is about a floating city completely made of metal, floating over the Mesosphere. One of the apartment buildings Lola (the main character) lived in as she was growing up was called “The Ferrington Apartments”. I decided to re-use that name, but I shortened it to “Ferry” because I knew that the character limit was 8.

I may have played female characters for longer in ACNL, but Ferrington (or Ferry) was male since I’m a male. On my first month I played ACNL, Ferrington was the only human character I played. He had ABA eyes since those were my favorite eye shape for the males at the time. I didn’t complete his house before I made another character, but I only had him until I completed my museum. Even after creating another character, I still used him until the day I deleted Westport. I didn’t really like him, but he was worth playing.

Ferrington’s house was supposed to be some odd house. I used a Zen exterior (both house model and exterior design), but a mixed interior. The left room was a sports room as the right room was the arcade with some generic carpet and wallpaper. The center resembled a Chinese plaza. The basement was a Cafe. The back room was a Princess Series room as the top room was the Gorgeous Series room. I always wanted a complete Gorgeous room for a long time.

Since I never created another character until I finished my museum, Ferrington basically did all the work for my town. He was in charge of all the museum donations, projects, and animal chatting. He was the first one to pay off all his debts and the first one to get all of his jokes learned at Club LOL. I did more work with him than I did with any other character in my town.

Kaylee:

While Ferry was my first character in ACNL (ever), Kaylee was my first (and most played) female character in the same game. If you want to know where I had the idea for my mayor of StarFall, this is where it started. Kaylee started out as an alternative character for my first town. Like the one in StarFall, Kaylee had brown ponytail hair and brown eyes shaped like the girl on the front cover of ACNL. I wanted to give her some unusual name by using the name “Kay”, and combining it with another name “Lee”. It is an already existing name (in fact, that was the standard way of spelling it. There was also Kailee, Caylee, Kayleigh, Kaley etc, but I picked Kaylee). Her birthday was July 20th since it was in the third week of July, but the same day of the week as the first day of winter. I like blonde girls more, but Kaylee was better off brunette than blonde. Her first appearance was a black jacket, green pants, green tights, and brown boots, rather than her appearance like we see now. She used to be a girl who doesn’t like wearing dresses or skirts as of my first town, but I made her exclusively wear dresses and skirts later in ACNL.

I created Kaylee very early in the month of July, like nearly one month after I created my town. At first, I didn’t put too much backstory into her. But later on, even if I used Ferry a lot, I was quickly attracted to her, so I’ve been using her as my primary character, even if she’s a secondary character. I used her to gather a lot of medals on the island tours, repeated the same steps I did on Ferry, and several other things.

Kaylee was supposed to be my future girl who owned a space themed hotel. The left room, back room, and right room were all under the Astro theme. The top room was Robo-themed, and with a very few exceptions, it resembled what my mayor’s top room was in StarFall.

Holly:

As part of my town planning, one of my houses was supposed to be a holiday mansion, where the rooms resemble holidays. Originally, the owner of the house was supposed to be male, but I picked female since a more creative name for it was a girl’s name. Holly was the name of the holiday mansion owner. Her hair was light brown and in a bun. She had blue ABA eyes.

Holly’s birthday was somehow the opposite of Kaylee’s birthday. Her birthday was on the same day of the week as the first day of summer, while it was in the third week of January. While Kaylee was my female character that worn pants, Holly was the skirt girl here. She also had a winter sweater. I later made her wear pants with tights when I tried making all of my characters wear black formal pants with an argyle shirt of a different kind.

Holly’s house was a holiday mansion. The left room was Halloween themed, back room was Thanksgivings, and right room was Christmas. The center room was a forest as the top room was a sweets room. She never completed her basement. I didn’t create her until I was finished with Ferry’s house.

Turtle:

My last character I made was Turtle, a boy who had the AAA eyes. I named him after my nickname, Turtle Boy (or Turtle). I made the least amount of work on him. But I did experience Resetti with this guy the most. I didn’t keep him for long. I ended up deleting him very late in my town’s history.

Overall:

Ferry was my first character (and mayor), but Kaylee was my best character. The one who had the best house was Holly. Turtle was the only one I didn’t like. Because I enjoyed Kaylee a lot more than the other three, she was the only one re-created after I deleted my town. In fact, I was even thinking about making a town where Kaylee is the mayor.

Planning Westport

Even if Westport was poorly planned, I had a very interesting planning history. When I first made Westport, all I wanted was to have a house near a beach. Westport was the name of my last town (and best town) in Wild World. It took me four attempts until I made a permanent town. First attempt, I was so confused and didn’t know that you can choose where you can place your house. I thought wherever the Plaza was is where you will live. So I started over. When I learned the mechanic, I had to start over again since I liked my first layout more. Third attempt, I had apples as my town fruit, which I didn’t want since that would make the apples my 100 Bell fruit. So I had to start over one more time. I placed Ferry’s house in front of a river and next to a ramp. Westport was technically Eastport since the ocean was on the east.

My first five villagers were Nan, Robin, Walt, Patty, and Sterling. The next three were Cherry, Pudge, and Chops. I had random villagers moving in and out. On my first town, I did not want all of my villagers to be on one side of the river. I’m okay if an animal moved south of the river, but I don’t want all of them to move south of the river. But for a few times, it has happened. Adding insult to injury (until I realized that it was a good layout later on), all of them were in a row. Thankfully, I had a few animals north of the river, and I tried to keep them there.

As for decorating my town, this is what I had planned here. One was supposed to be the mayor’s house, with two GracieGrace themes. Another was supposed to be some kind of hotel. Then I would have a holiday mansion and a winter house. Due to the high difficulty of getting the winter items (and since the Cabin series was rarely sold at the Nooklings), I opted out of having a winter house (but at least I had one in my current town). All of my trees south of the river would have fruits while the ones north of the river were fruitless. Ferry’s house was next to the beach ramp of the eastern side. Kaylee’s was bounded by three sides of the river and was in the southernmost point on the north side of the river. Holly’s was where Sterling’s once was, which is in the thin strip north of the river on the east. And Turtle’s house was behind a sea cliff and in front of the Plaza. I had no paths. My first PWP was a cobblestone bridge. But I also had a few lamps, a fountain, a lighthouse, and a video screen. Plus, a yellow bench, solar panels, and a wind turbine. I had my Police Station next to Town Hall, my Campsite on the other thin strip, but on the west side, and the Cafe next to the Train Station plaza.

One frustration I had in ACNL was the animal moving mechanic. Three animals (one at a time) moved directly in front of my house. Because of this, I had to block it with a fountain to prevent further move-ins in-front of my house. The other target to prevent animals from moving in front of Town Hall. I was able to get both preventions done.

Now moving onto the Museum. From the very beginning to Kaylee’s character creation, I only focused on the Museum with a few PWPs and animal chats. I donated fish, insects, and fossils. I wanted to get the second floor project done though. The first wing was the Fossil exhibit. Before I started time traveling out of June, my focus was to get all the fossils donated (yes, all 67 of them). After that, I started time traveling out of June. I went back to February since it was the latest month to catch a bagworm. I also had to get fish and seafood at that time. I then focused on moving forwards in order to get my museum complete. After I got both the fish and insects finished, I went back to July and time traveled back and forth constantly until I got all of my works of art collected from Redd.

Animal Stories

Although I never really cared about animals in ACNL, I had a few favorite animals before. And if I can remember well, I had some animals that were really nice to me.

My favorite villager I ever had in Westport is Caroline. I always liked the squirrels, and aside to her species and character design, she is a normal villager. Normal villagers are my favorite villagers based on personality. What I liked about Caroline even more was that she was the one who suggested the lighthouse PWP. I only got to hold onto her on my first month. Some point later, around the finishing of my museum, she moved away before I made Kaylee. The worst part was that she didn’t send me her pic. Since she moved away, I focused on getting her back, but this never happened since my town was deleted.

Although Kitty isn’t one of my favorite villagers, I did like her. Kitty was the villager like Caroline while I had both Ferry and Kaylee. She hosted a birthday party for both of my characters. On the day before I created Holly, Kitty moved away.

Another villager I liked was Mira. Because she moved north of the river, I tried to keep her in town and not let her move out. Around the end of my Westport days, Mira was like my best friend. I didn’t want to lose her. I was able to get more north-side animals while I had her, but she was like a nice friend to me. Unfortunately, she didn’t stay forever since I had to get rid of this town. Mira was one of my favorite Uchi villagers because of this.

Town Deletion

On October 21st, 2013, I deleted my entire town of Westport. On that day, I was preparing for my next town, Belcroft. After I transferred all of my items, I ended up deleting my town for good. Because I tried hard to look for a lab bench to complete my Mad Scientist’s theme (and since the Nooklings never sold it), I decided to give up. I took a break from playing the game. Because of my poor planning, the group mechanic not letting me get the items I want, and the fact I needed to start a new town, I had to delete it.

Before I considered deleting my town, there were three pushes to deleting my town. I threaten on deleting my town because of them, but I didn’t want to do it since I had to go through these frustrating processes again. But hey, I had to do this. Anyway, here are the pushes to deleting my town:

My first one was my worst one. On my time traveling journey, I completed my Cafe donations on March 15th, 2013 (as the Nooklings announced that they’re remodeling for one last time). On the day after, I was ready to host the ceremony, but Isabelle won’t let me because of a Fishing Tourney. She said “but what about today’s event?” to me when I sat down. I was like “but what about the Cafe” when I read that. She also said that “it’s unhealthy to work all day” and told me to take a break. I’m like hello, the project is complete, so shouldn’t we host the ceremony. What’s even worse was that the Fishing Tourney was already over for the day, and she won’t let me host the ceremony. In my eyes, once a project is finished, the ceremony must be held on the day after donations are complete. But she wouldn’t let me because of some event. So I went to the next day, but once again, there was another holiday. I was angry because not every country celebrates St. Patrick’s Day (as there wasn’t a holiday for that in the GameCube Version). Town Hall was closed that day, making it two consecutive days where I couldn’t host the ceremony. On the third day after donations, she will let me host the event. But I was angry at her. I wanted the project hosted on the day after completion, but I was forced to delay it, by two days. Angered by this mechanic, I decided to cancel the ceremony. I later regretted this. I was angry at Isabelle. I wanted to even fire her as secretary because of the holidays preventing my Cafe ceremony hosted on the opening date and the day after. I felt like it was the worst mistake I made in-game because the Cafe ceremony might be the best one ever, and I canceled it. So Westport’s Cafe in my opinion was ruined. Here is a lesson in the future. When you are about to finish project donations, please do not finish on the day before an event, especially over a project that can’t be demolished after construction. I was even thinking about deleting my entire town because of this.

The next push to deleting my town was Jacques. Because I focused too hard on getting Redd’s art, I never even interacted with him, and he moved out too early. I didn’t even get to stop him, and I held onto him for less than two hours in real life. Because I didn’t get a chance to talk to him, I don’t think I should give my town a chance to live.

The third push was Aurora. Since she was a normal villager (and penguin), I appear to like her. I actually tried to keep her away from moving out at one time. But after some time traveling, she didn’t warn me that she was going to move, and she moved without sending a goodbye letter. I even liked her. So I was like “that’s it!” when it happened. But I didn’t want to delete my town because I didn’t want to lose progress.

As a result, the pushes never got me to deleting my town, but I did eventually delete the town with all these bad experiences, especially the Cafe Ceremony one. Anyway, as I prepared for the next town, I created a character on someone else’s town to hold onto the items I want to keep as I deleted my town. I got the Gorgeous Series, some sci-fi items, and a few others I wanted to keep.

Facts:

  • The shaved ice lamp owned by Ferry, the autumn carpet and wallpaper owned by Holly, and the Sci-fi carpet and wallpaper were owned by Penny, Jenny, and Kaylee in StarFall (respectively).
  • Because of Kaylee being my best character, she was the only one recreated in my future towns.
  • Westport was the only town I had the Reset Surveillance Center in.
  • All of the completable goals in Wild World were achieved in my first town (perfect town status, museum completion, and house renovations/completion).
  • One of the custom displays in Westport’s museum had the same furniture for one of the rooms in Kaylee’s house in both Belcroft and StarFall.
  • My first fish I caught with Ferry isn’t a fish, but rather the frog.
  • Westport’s town fruit was the peach.

And that’s all, but the pre-history of StarFall is not over. Next week, I will go over the town of Belcroft.

Tour of StarFall

Now that I introduced the characters to you, it’s time to share more about my town. Right now, my town doesn’t match what I am trying to share, but it does match my dream town. The last time I updated my Dream Town was four months ago.

I will show some pictures of my town today. At the same time, I will explain more about the town.

Regions of StarFall

Although no visible borders are drawn in my town, I have divided my town into nine regions, but four of them are separated from the other five. The super-regions of StarFall are actually based on what side of the river. Most of the town is on what I call the “north side of the river”. It has most of the landmarks, orchards, animal houses, and the road to Main Street. I can place my favorite animals on this side of the river. The south side of the river is the smaller part of town, but is has the majority of the PWPs, but only a small majority. It’s more beautiful than the north side of the river, and all of my humans are placed south of the river.

The north side of the river has five regions:

  • Town Hall Region
  • Campsite
  • Plaza
  • Eastern Road
  • Southern Road

The south side of the river has four regions:

  • Crossroads
  • Western Road
  • Space Castle Plaza
  • Seasons-Café Region

The regions are based on what PWPs I place, what trees I grow, and a few cut-offs of land.

Here is the map of town:

Map of StarFall

The North

The majority of the town is north of the river. The town has trees planted in a designated section of the town. The path flowers are red, white, and yellow tulips. All my PWPs on this side are under the modern motif with the flower clock, windmill, and the solar panels being the outliers of this side. All ten residents of StarFall live on this side.

Town Hall Region:

The heart of StarFall, and the largest region in town, is the Town Hall Region. Main Street, Town Hall, the Re-Tail, and the Train Station are all part of this huge region. The three common trees are the apples, oranges, and lemons. Aurora, Ava, and Lobo all live on this region.

Campsite:

Although this is technically part of the Town Hall Region, the Campsite is a separate region in its own, bounded within olive shrubs and pine trees. It’s named after the main attraction, the Campsite. There is a lake in this region as well.

Plaza:

In the northeastern corner of the town, the town tree stands there. You may be familiar with the purpose of this attraction. In StarFall, it is bounded by cherry trees and white tulips. The town fruit is the cherry, and the tulip is the town flower.

Plaza

Eastern Road:

On the eastern strip of town, more specifically south of the plaza, there is a long road that extends all the way to the flower clock at the corner. Somewhere in the middle of this region, there is a path to a ramp to the beach, and the Seasons-Café Bridge, which connects to the Seasons-Café Region. Katt, Keaton, Blaire, Bubbles, and all of my pear trees on the North are in this region. It starts with the lamp in front of the plaza and ends at the flower clock in the corner.

Southern Road:

Although this is part of the North, the Southern Road is actually south of a river segment that flows there. It extends to the Waterfall Bridge and flower clock at the corner. Pierce, Walker, and Roald all live in this region. The StarFall Windmill and Police Station are also part of this region. Peach trees and yellow tulips dominate this region.

The South

While most of the town is north of the river, the South is where all of the humans live. From the very beginning, no animal has inhabited this region, and although I have seen a few animal plots when I was plot resetting, no animal has officially moved on this side of the river, ever. And now, it’s impossible for any animal to move there based on my placement of the PWPs there. Trees aren’t in uniform there, all flowers are hybrid tulips in a pattern, the modern motif doesn’t apply here, and most of the town’s PWPs are here. I even like the South side of the river more.

Crossroads:

The northern bit of the South is what I call the Crossroads. It divides between the Western Road, the Town Hall Region, and the Seasons-Café Region. The most significant landmark of this side is the StarFall Tower, which is at the end of one of the paths of the Crossroads.

Western Road:

Space Castle Plaza:

While the Town Hall Region is the main region of StarFall, the Space Castle Plaza is the same way for the South. This was the first region I worked on when placing PWPs. This region is named after the Space Castle, also known as Kaylee’s house or the mayor’s house. I had three projects to connect here as well.

Seasons-Café Region:

The last region to go over is the Seasons-Café Region. It is named after Jenny’s and Penny’s houses, as well as the South’s most famous attraction, the StarFall Café (or the Roost). It’s on the thin strip of land bounded between both horizontal segments of the river.

Some point in time, I will go over more detail about the houses. Now that I shared what my town has, let’s go over what built up to this town. In the next 21 weeks, I will go over StarFall’s history, covering the records and stuff I journalized as I worked on this town.

StarFall – Meet the Cast

Most players of Animal Crossing prefers one of the 250+ villagers in the game as their favorite character out of the entire game. Popular villagers include Marshal, Ankha, Stitches, and more characters like that. Some like the non-villagers as their favorite character, especially Isabelle. I seem to like the non-villagers pretty well, as I don’t care too much over the regular villagers. However, if there’s any characters I like more than anything from Animal Crossing, it would have to be the human characters. Caroline is my favorite villager, but most of the female humans with the half-circle eyes (otherwise known as AAA eyes) are way better than her, even the ones I don’t own.

The town of StarFall, which is actually owned by a male player, has only three human residents, and they are all female. Not just female, but they have the same eye shape. Even if all humans have the same backstory according to Nintendo, I treat my characters as my original creations and decide their backstory, but not in-game. We may have a lot of players who care a lot about animals, but I’m more for my human residents than anything else in-game.

That’s enough introduction, so it’s time to meet the three women that live in StarFall. Our first one is the mayor of StarFall. She has the most duties out of all three of them and keeps the town in good shape. And she is…

Kaylee

Kaylee

Born in the Inland Empire on October 1st, 1993, Kaylee has always been a sweet, but silly girl. She has never experienced a life outside luxury, making her believe that everyone can afford anything. She is a straight-A student, Class of 2011 graduate, and the only member of her family to be private-schooled. Her religion is Roman Catholic, her political party is Republican, and her ethnicity is English and Spanish. Her father’s ancestry in the US started in the 1600’s as part of the English colonists. The ancestors in the mid-1800’s went to Northern California as part of the goldrush. Her mother’s ancestors were Spanish, but all of them after the 1500’s were colonists in present-day Southern California. From 1870 and later, all of Kaylee’s ancestors are Californian.

As a Southern Californian herself, Kaylee has a lot of interests most Californians have. Her favorite fast food chain is In-N-Out, four of the other top ten favorite fast foods are Californian, she likes living in the desert, she likes amusement parks like Disneyland, and she isn’t scared of earthquakes.

Kaylee’s physical attributes: she is 5’6″ tall, weighs 130 pounds, thick brown hair, and brown eyed.

Kaylee’s personality is very sweet and hardly angered. She doesn’t take offense if someone calls her fat. She takes serious issues like work and morals seriously, but is very silly almost the rest of the time. She is tolerant of any race, religion, and class, but is a bit sexist and has very few female friends. She loves boys, and has very many male friends. Because of her boyish interests and high intolerance of snobs, she does better around boys than girls.

Kaylee has only one superpower, which is the power to see the truth inside anyone. She can tell what anyone did at anytime, no matter how far in the past it is. She can even tell if someone is lying or not. The only lie detector machine she owns is herself.

Kaylee 01

A few days after her 18th birthday, she had to escape California due to the bad state in economy. Her family stayed as Kaylee moved all the way to Texas. She brought her car, some of her favorite stuff, and the part of the money her father gave to her as she left (which is $10 million, 5% of her family’s total wealth). She met a rich Mexican family on arrival and became close friends. They moved to Houston, where Kaylee met her two best friends for life, Jenny and Penny, whom were also sweet girls.

While living in Houston, Kaylee, Jenny, and Penny all lived in a penthouse-like apartment. Kaylee was the owner of the apartment shared by Jenny, Penny, and the Mexican family she first met. Kaylee’s job was a hotel front desk clerk at a luxury hotel, local to her apartment. She did not attend college while in Houston since she needed a break from school. She had fun with her best friends and went out a lot.

Kaylee 02

Kaylee’s interests are very mixed. Based on how girly or boyish she is, she stand right in the center. First of all, she only likes to dress girly. All of her dresses and shirts are long-sleeved because she doesn’t like showing off her arms, even if it’s summer. She exclusively wears dresses or skirts and shirts. All of her skirts are knee-length and have vertical folds or ridges. Her dresses are also knee-length. When she’s wearing a dress, it’s always with black tights at an opacity of 90%. But when she’s wearing a skirt, she likes wearing long white socks. Her shoes are always black or brown. She only likes wearing her hair in a ponytail. The four-leaf clover in her hair is an actual four-leaf clover in-game, but it’s really a clover hairpin. She wears it even she’s sleeping. She is highly critical of wearing makeup and jewelry, and she never wears jewelry or makeup. She also opposes tattoos, hair dying, and tanning. Despite being very religious, she doesn’t like covering her hair.

Kaylee’s fashion preferences aren’t the only things girly about her. Her favorite color is pink. Second in line is purple. Between the two, she likes almost any shade of pink or purple as long as it’s not over 75% red. Her third favorite color is blue and any shade of blue. Her favorite neutral color is white. Even if all of her scarves are yellow, her least favorite color is yellow. She also doesn’t like green that much either.

While she likes to dress girly and likes girly colors, her preferences in media and entertainment is primarily boyish. She likes Star Wars and superhero comics, but not Barbie or My Little Pony. She is okay with Disney Princesses, but likes non-princess Disney heroines more. Her favorite themes are Sci-fi and Medieval, mainly due to her interest in advanced technology and highly religious nature, respectively. As a result in her theme preferences, she lives in a castle-like building in StarFall with every room being futuristic.

When it comes to eating, Kaylee doesn’t mind eating anything as long as it’s not gross, unsuitable for eating, or candy. Every year from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday, she is a vegan who won’t eat sweets, but for the rest of the time, she can eat anything. Her favorite food is cheesecake. Her favorite drink is milkshake.

Kaylee’s dream job is to be an entrepreneur. She dreams of running a hotel resort. If she were a college student, she would have a major in business. She can do well in accounting, management, and hospitality.

Kaylee 03

When Kaylee moved to StarFall on January 2nd, 2014, she was forced to become mayor. Due to her belief that only men should hold office and her fear of abusing her power, she was very dissatisfied with her job. But, as long as she is mayor, she can decorate StarFall anyway she wants it to be. She lived with the animals and her best friends when they followed her.

While living in StarFall, Kaylee was in charge of building the Public Works Projects, fossil donations, and landscaping. She plays little role in laying out the paths in town.

Kaylee 04

Our second character is StarFall’s master chef. She is more than just an alternative character, but quite contributive as well. Here she is…

Jenny

Jenny

Jenny is a girl born in Southern Mexico on November 6th, 1993. She is of a full Spanish descent, which originated from the Scandinavian, hence her blonde characteristics. Like Kaylee, Jenny is sweet and silly, but as much as Kaylee is. She is very skinny, tall, and athletic. She is also Roman Catholic, but not as religious as Kaylee. Her political views are Libertarian. She has no respect towards the Democrats or Republicans in power.

Jenny is more tolerant of any group than the other two. She is very mature, responsible, and talented. She is white, but has darker skin than the other two. She is 5’8″ in height. Even if she’s more spoiled than the other two, she’s not very easy to anger or spoil.

Everything Jenny writes is in English. She has very good sense of grammar and spelling. However, she only speaks Spanish since her pronunciation of English is mostly wrong. She can only pronounce her American name, as well as the names of her two friends, correctly. So she can understand English, but not speak English.

Jenny 01

When Jenny was nine, she was kidnapped by a crazy American tourist who wanted to harm her. When they arrived in San Antonio, the tourist was arrested, but the cop that took him away told Jenny that she couldn’t come back to Mexico, even if she isn’t citizen in America. A lawyer from Houston naturalized and adopted her as a foster daughter. Even if his family was rich, Jenny doesn’t like being spoiled by wealth, so he got her own private house in the backyard with a third-world look. She later wanted to adapt to American culture after her huge interest in America. The adoptive family gave her a new name – Jenny.

Ever since Jenny moved to Houston, she never left the city until 2012 for a vacation. Throughout her life, she had one best friend who was close to her in school the whole time, Penny. For life, they have always got along. They hung out with each other, visited each other’s homes, and even helped out each other. They both even have the highest grades at their schools.

After meeting Kaylee at age 17, Jenny started to experience a life of luxury. She also got a job as a chef at a restaurant near the hotel Kaylee works at. She also does all of the cooking for the three when they lived together. Jenny know a lot on culinary arts. Because of her cooking skills and productivity, she was the highest paid chef at the restaurant she works at.

Jenny 02

Like Kaylee, Jenny’s fashion sense is mostly feminine. She likes wearing dresses and skirts, but her shirts and dresses are short-sleeved or sleeveless. She only wears long sleeves if it’s a jacket or coat. Although she wears skirts much more infrequently and dress more frequently than Kaylee, 65% of the time, she would wear a skirt with a top. 40% of the time she is in a skirt, she’s in a short skirt with a sleeveless top. Occasionally, she would wear pants, unlike Kaylee, who would never. Like Kaylee, she has the same kind of tights and wears them with her dresses only. Her socks, are mostly short socks. Jenny likes being natural as Kaylee when it comes to makeup, jewelry etc, but she likes having her hair in a ponytail.

Jenny’s interests are neither girly nor boyish. She prefers the gender-neutral topics and toys. Her favorite colors are orange, brown, and black. Her favorite themes are the fall theme and the Southern US theme.

Although Jenny doesn’t mind cooking anything, she is a vegan since she finds eating meat gross. She can eat fruits, vegetables, and bread/grains. She can eat meat, but very rarely.

Jenny had her dream job for a while until she moved to StarFall. Her dream job was to be a chef. If she attended college, she would get a major in culinary arts.

Jenny 03

Jenny’s cooking career ended on the day before January 5th, 2014, the day she moved to StarFall with Kaylee. Jenny lived next to Penny on a thin strip of land in town. Her duties as a villager is to catch and donate all the insects to the museum. In addition, she holds part of the paths and cuts down trees for landscaping.

Jenny 04

The last of the three women in StarFall is the town’s florist and cleaner…

Penny

Penny

Penny is a girl born in Northern Mexico on December 5th, 1993. Like Jenny, Penny is of a Spanish descent, doesn’t speak English, writes only in English, and is Roman Catholic. She is sweeter and sillier than Jenny, but not as much as Kaylee. Her political views are more appealing to tradition and not to modern life.

Penny may not be as talented as the other two, but she does a better job at cleaning than the others. She is playful and friendly, and was always a happy girl, even if she was always below the poverty line until her adulthood.

Penny 01

At age nine, Penny’s family, including Penny, moved to the United States. They were naturalized before they got their house in Houston. Even though she’s living in the US, she still values her Mexican heritage and wants to keep her culture. Even in America, they were still poor.

While living in Houston, she met Jenny in school, who was very sweet and friendly to her. They both hung out with each other, helped out each other, and visited each others’ houses. Because of how identical they are, they became good friends. When both graduated from high school in 2011, they only lived with each other and left their families.

Penny’s life of poverty ended when Kaylee met the two in the mall. She promised her that she can share an apartment with her and Jenny. Promise was kept as Kaylee became part of the trio. While Kaylee works full time as a hotel clerk and Jenny works as a full time chef at a restaurant, Penny was part time cleaner of the restaurant and part time service person at the hotel. She did all the cleaning and house making for the apartment all three of them lived in.

Penny 02

Penny is just as neutral as Jenny is when it comes to how girly or boyish they are. Penny only likes short-sleeve shirts and dresses. She likes knee-length dresses and skirts, just like Kaylee. Very rarely, she would wear short skirts, and not as rarely, but still uncommon, she would wear pants, especially as part of her bedtime outfit. She likes wearing tights with a dress, and socks if she isn’t wearing a dress. She likes being natural in beauty and her hair in a ponytail.

Penny may like boyish stuff and girly stuff, but one thing she is more interested into anything is plants. She is a plant lover. She thinks plants are people and would cry if she saw a plant die. She enjoys watering flowers, growing plants, and taking good care of plants. She even had a pet tomato shrub when she was a child. Nobody was allowed to pick the tomatoes or eat them unless if the shrub grew too many. Penny’s favorite colors are green, red, and white. Her favorite themes are the winter theme and the Mexican theme.

When it comes to eating, Penny is the exact opposite of Jenny. Due to her love in plants and finding eating vegetables to be cruel, she only eats meat. She would also eat products from animals, as well as bread and grain. She can’t even cook or cut fruits or vegetables.

Penny’s dream job is to be a florist. She still cleans, but she wants to be a flower delivery person. She would major in agriculture and forestry if she was in college.

Penny 03

Penny was the last of the three to move to StarFall. She moved in on January 7th. She lives next to Jenny. Her job is to catch the fish and deep sea catches for donations, path holding, and watering the flowers.

Penny 04

The introduction is over. No, I did not base these characters after real people or other’s characters. They are original characters. There are many complicated reasons on why I had more information on Kaylee than the other two, but one of them is that Jenny and Penny were similar to each other.

You will be seeing or hearing about them a lot more in the future on Town of StarFall every Tuesday. You can see what contributions they have made or what they did that was helpful.

History of StarFall – Background

Today is the day that I shall start blogging more about my town’s history. As a member of the Bell Tree Forums, I have written 19 entries on my current town, StarFall. Even if only 20% of the entries I write is about my town and its history, this whole site is based after that. Many entries will contain stats, records, and many other things I witnessed as I made my town.

Background

Although I have been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf since the dawn of its release in the United States, the idea of StarFall dates all the way back to seven months after the release (January 2014). At that point, I was already on my second town, and I felt that it’s time for me to get a new town. But I had objections to it until very late in May. In February of 2014, I went to a public casino for my 21st birthday. I gamble only for fun, not to make money, but I want to win. Even if gambling has nothing to do with all of this, I would’ve never had the town of StarFall until late if I never gambled. Why? Cause in May, I won big at the casino (not like $1,000 huge, but still in the triple digits). Since I never really owned that much money before, I was able to spend it on electronic devices. I was really lucky that trip.

Part of the money I won at the casino was spent on a WiiU bundle. There’s currently only one WiiU in my house, and it sits in my room. I wanted to share, but since I bought it, it was to be placed in my room. And the other part went to a new 3DS system. I was thinking about starting a new town late in May. My siblings objection to me getting a new 3DS just to start a new town because I can swap SD cards, but starting a new town is something that I needed to do. My old 3DS system was dying, the town I had there was not dream town worthy, and I wanted to start a new town. Just letting you know, I didn’t gamble just to get money for a new 3DS. I was going to use the money for anything, but my decision on the remainder from what I won was to get a new 3DS. That time, it was a 3DS XL.

Before I bought a new 3DS XL, I was already planning on what to have in the town of StarFall. I wanted it to be a modern themed town with a few structures of light. I also had to do more research on how to make a better dream town. The reason why I needed to start a new town is because I saw some really nice dream towns, and it inspired me to start mine over.

On June 12th, 2014, I bought my new 3DS XL system. It was a plain blue one with black being part of the frame. On the 13th, I set up my 3DS system to be ready. And finally, on the 18th, I created the town of StarFall. Last summer, I spent most of the time working on building my town. At the same time, I journalized every activity that has some point of interest. What inspired me to journalize what happens in-game is the Town Tree (also known as the Plaza). When you sit down, you can see a history of your town, but it only lists events of current villagers and major landmarks. So I created StarFall not only to have a nice town, but to also write a journal based after. I track what villagers lived in my town, what PWPs I unlock, what fish and insects I caught in some order, and what badges I earn in some order, all with a given date. Despite doing all of this in June, July, and August, the dates don’t really match since I time travel excessively. I even started my town on January 2nd in-game and only time traveled forwards to make sure the town’s history doesn’t get scrambled.

On August 24th, 2014, I published my Dream Town, but it still needed updating. And by November 16th or some date, I updated my Dream Town. I haven’t made any updates since then. When I joined Bell Tree Forums, I written blog entries that contained my records I had on my town. Here, I’ll go more in depth on my journal.

After second update, I haven’t made anymore journal updates, and in 2015, my town was being landscaped even further. Some of the projects I worked on and journalized about are no longer there, and my town doesn’t match my Dream Town, especially due to my laziness in plot resetting. After all, I at least published a very nice dream town.

Stay tuned for every Tuesday as I share records on my town.
