1. Check the weather forecast and plan your activities accordingly.
The weather can have a big impact on what you can do in Animal Crossing, so it’s important to check the forecast before you start your day. If it’s going to be a hot day, you might want to focus on activities that can be done indoors, such as fishing or crafting. If it’s going to rain, you’ll want to make sure to water your flowers and trees first.
2. Collect any resources that you need, such as wood, fruit, or shells.
You’ll need to collect resources regularly in order to craft items or pay off your debts to Tom Nook. Wood can be chopped down from trees, while fruit can be found growing on trees or bushes. Shells can be collected from the beach, and can be used to make furniture or decorations.
3. Check your traps and fishing rods, and re-set them if necessary.
If you have any traps set, be sure to check them regularly to see if anything has been caught. You’ll also want to check your fishing rods, as you might have gotten a bite while you were away. If you catch anything, you can either keep it for yourself or sell it to Tom Nook.
4. Water your flowers and trees.
Flowers and trees need to be watered regularly in order to stay healthy. You can use a watering can to water them, or you can set up a sprinkler to do it automatically. If you have a lot of flowers, you might want to consider making a garden.
5. Talk to your villagers and see if they need help with anything.
Your villagers are always doing something, and they might need your help with something. You can usually find them around town, and they’ll usually have a speech bubble above their head if they need help. If you complete a task for them, they’ll usually be very grateful and might even give you a gift.
6. Complete any tasks that you have been assigned by Tom Nook.
As you progress through the game, Tom Nook will assign you various tasks to do. These tasks can be anything from fetching items to building structures. You’ll usually be given a time limit to complete the task, so be sure to do it as soon as possible.
7. Collect any items that have been left for you by villagers or friends.
If you have any friends or villagers who live on your island, they might leave you gifts from time to time. These gifts can be anything from fruit to furniture, so be sure to check for them regularly. You can also find gifts by shaking trees or digging up fossils.
8. Pay off any debts that you owe to Tom Nook.
As you play the game, you’ll probably end up owing money to Tom Nook. You can pay off your debt by selling items to him or by completing tasks for him. If you don’t pay off your debt, Tom Nook will eventually start charging interest, so it’s best to pay it off as soon as possible.
9. Play with your pet, if you have one.
If you have a pet, be sure to spend some time playing with them each day. Pets need to be fed, watered, and exercised, so be sure to take care of them. You can usually find your pet near your house, and they’ll usually have a speech bubble above their head if they need attention.
10. Make sure to save your game before you quit for the day!
It’s important to save your game regularly, as you don’t want to lose any progress. You can save your game by pressing the Plus button on your Nintendo Switch. You should also save your game before you quit for the day, as you never know when something might happen to your console.
