Thanks to EvanBean7! ------------------------------------- 1. INTRODUCTION/HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE ------------------------------------- I first got the idea for this FAQ after I made a voteoff. From intense studying, creating and deleting many towns, and even time traveling through my experimental town, I was able to see all 218 animal neighbors and was also able to determine their personalities. I have grouped the animal neighbors in 3 different ways: 1. SPECIES: There are a total of 32 different kinds of species. An animal's specie does not determine what they are like personality-wise, nor will a certain specie like you more than another; specie will determine how a neighbor looks and what the town melody will sound like when you speak to them. This list will help you figure out what neighbors you want to live in your town if you're trying to diversify various species. 2. PERSONALITIES: There are 6 different personalities, 3 of them male and the other 3 being female. Personality varies with each animal. Sometimes, an animal's specie will be limited to one personality (all male wolves are Grumps, for example). Several factors will help you determine an animal's personality: - Bedtime - Wakeup time - Response to you refusing to do them a favor - Response to being pushed or hit with a net - Name's BG color in message window (Blue = males, Pink = females) - Painting of roof - Painting of roof during rain This way, you can prepare yourself for a possible roof painting when talking to certain neighbors, and also the times when they'll be awake. This list will help you figure out what animals you are most and least likely to get along with. 3. ALPHABETICAL ORDER: All animals, regardless of specie and personality, are listed from A(Ace) to Z(Zoe). This will help you figure out easily the specie and personality of your animal neighbor. -------------------------------------------------------- -------------------- 2.

GETTING ALONG WITH ANIMALS: ------------------------------- DO NOT walk around town with over 3,000 bells in your wallet. If you chat to an animal, they may con you either willfully or forcefully into buying their junk. You can refuse, but some animals get angry if you say no. Others don't even give you the opportunity to refuse! DO NOT walk around with furniture, carpets, wallpaper, fossils (ones the museum sent back after analyzing), NES games, or gyroids. Some animals have been known to dishonestly swipe the item when you talk to them, and exchange it for a piece of junk. When it comes to fish or bugs, you CAN refuse, but some animals become enraged if you refuse to hand it over. HALLOWEEN: Do not wear good clothes or walk around with anything valuable in your pockets! Animals give warning signs that they're getting tired of talking to you. Sometimes, the warning message is not given, since you spoke to the animal while they were in another mood. If you keep talking to an animal after they give you the warning message three times, they will lash out at you, speaking in a high-pitched voice, and flat out refusing to listen to a single word you want to say. To calm them, you must walk very far from the acre the irritated animal is in and stay in the new acre for a while. (This little scenario is especially fun when you have an item that you need to deliver to/receive from the irritated beast.) Here is the list of warning messages. If an animal says one of the following to you, BACK OFF!: GRUMP: - "Oh, You again. Does it make you happy, running around, irritating people all day? Huh?!" - "Don't pretend you're here because you like me. You just want to see how ticked off you can make me!" - "You again, huh? Don't you have anywhere else you could be, (your name)?" SNOB: - "Oh, you just couldn't stay away from me? You sure have a lot of free time, don't you?" - "You again...Look, if you keep coming here, I'll never have any time to get good dirt on anyone." - "You sure come here a lot, don't you? I must be even more charming than I'd thought, (phrase)!" ATHLETE: - "Don't you have anything else you could be doing?" "I hate to break it to you, but some of us have important things to do!" - "Dude. Can't you take a hint? It's not like I'm your only friend, is it? That's so pathetic, (phrase)!" - "You sure come here a lot! You know, I'm starting to think you've got a little too much time on your hands!" VALLEY GIRL: - "You again! You're worse than that cold I had that just wouldn't go away, (phrase)!" - "I can't have you coming over all the time, you know. I don't want anyone to think we're friends or anything." - "You again? What's the matter, don't you have any other friends you can go bug!" DOOFUS: - "Maybe it doesn't look like it, but I've got stuff to do too, you know..." - "Look, it's great that you're here and everything, but do you think you could maybe leave now?" - "Can't you just leave me alone? I'm tired, and I don't want to talk, (phrase)." SWEETIE: - "You spend so much time here. Don't you have anywhere else you could go, (phrase)?" - "You again? You have a lot of free time on your hands, don't you?" - "Unlike you, I really don't have enough free time on my hands to stand around gabbing, (phrase)." Try not to refuse favors. Some animals don't get upset if you refuse their task, but others become furious if you refuse theirs. Do favors! Though they reward you for it, it makes their "life" easier having less work to do, even if they do give away stuff. Write letters! -------------------- 11. WRITING LETTERS: -------------------- Considering the AI is surprisingly dull-witted, writing letters often results in an animal writing back, criticizing you for your "weird letter" that makes them feel "not smart". In fact, my first and second batch of letters got panned by my neighbors! I eventually found out how to make a letter get a good response. Here are tips that I use, and so far, it hasn't failed me yet! - Use words they understand (names of furniture, fish, bugs, etc.) - Limit a sentence's lengh to TWO lines. Any more, and they won't get it. - Fill up at least 5 lines. If it is 4 lines or less, they won't get it. - Mention one or more of these names: Yours Theirs Current Neighbor Town Non-villager Animal (Tom Nook, Copper, etc.) Visitor (Saharah, Wendell, Wisp, etc.) In-Game Places (Dump, Post Office, etc.) - Avoid mispellings, especially names of people, places, or things. - Mail a shirt. While furniture does cost more, THEY WON'T USE IT! While it may take a while for them to wear shirts you send, they will eventually be wearing your shirt the next time you start your game after mailing the letter with the gift. - A blank letter is an instant "I didn't get your letter" response. Here is a basic template that you may use: --------------------------------------- | Dear (animal name), | | | | Hi! I hope you are well. | | Today, I gave Wendell a fish | | and he gave me an ancient wall! | | Here is a present for you. | | Please write back soon! | | See you later, (animal name)! | | | | Your friend, (your name) | --------------------------------------- Line one:----Hi! I hope you are well. (The animal will understand well, as it is the name of an item.) Line two:----Today, I gave Wendell a fish Line three:--and he gave me an ancient wall! (The animal knows Wendell, and the ancient wall is an item) Line four:---Here is a present for you. (The present is also an item...) Line five:---Please Write back soon! (You don't HAVE to write anymore, but if you want, you can make a sixth line of text.) Line six: See you later, (animal name)! (They are smart enough to know their own name.) You can change lines; for example, you can replace Wendell with another animal's name. You can also name a food or drink item animals mention (like cookies, pizza rolls, chili dogs, etc.) and they will understand it. -------------------- 12.
