Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Weekly Update #5 (July 16th-31st)

It's time for another update on Nublar, this time going over what happened during the second half of July! We received the 1.4.0 update which added Dreaming and Fireworks, so there's a lot to get into! 

I don't know if it's because it's been a while since the last update, but I feel like Nublar has seen a lot of change overs recently. We've had Ken move out... and Jambette move in, and that's it for this weeks move ins/outs. I guess more of them happened in August. Jambette is a move in from another Island, and whilst she doesn't bother me, I do wish I had my own influx of villagers move in, rather than rejects from other Islands.

It's just the usual crew here - Gullivarrr/Gulliver, Redd, Label, Wisp and Celeste. I actually haven't seen Celeste since this night, which I believe was the 18th. That's probably because I've barely been playing during the nights recently, but I'm hoping to change that soon.

Something I've noticed with Pascal is some days you find Scallops easily, and others, you spend so long trying to look for one. I wish it was a less tedious process, but I guess it was included with the intention of players searching every couple of days, not every single day. I've got a good stash of Mermaid DIYs and Pearls, and I think as of the current days, I've completed the Mermaid Series since Pascal has only given me Pearls over the last week.

Dreaming is a feature I'm ecstatic got added back into the game, but I really haven't played around with it a whole lot. I've got a Dream Address Directory on the site that you can go over to find some cool Islands to visit. As a thanks for downloading the update, players got sent Luna's bed, which goes well in the back room of my house. Hopefully I get some downtime soon so I can properly appreciate this feature.

Island Development
A couple of new things got added on this front. I did some landscaping, and added some more bridges/inclines. I'm undecided as to whether or not I should remove the patterned path I have on the western wing and change it to the basic dirt path or not tho... If you want to check out what I've done, I did update Nublar's Dream Address this morning, so feel free to poke around if you're interested.

Other Things
There's really not a whole lot more to add. I've actually been casually enjoying the game and doing a few things here and there, but nothing too groundbreaking. I'm actually kind of thankful the 1.4.0 update wasn't that huge, because it gave me a chance to actually enjoy the game, rather than playing to unlock and document everything. I hope we get a couple more updates like this down the line.

Site Updates
I've made a fair few updates to the discord server, and written up a short review on The Origami King if you want to check those out. There's also some short guides on the Fireworks Festival and Dreaming, too. As for what's coming, I'm still working on a few things, but the next thing coming should be a Winter Events Guide, akin to the one I made for the Fall. Between playing Paper Mario and simply just not having time, I haven't played a whole chunk of AC recently, but today marked the day the snow disappeared from Nublar, and the Spring is finally beginning to start. I'm looking forward to it!

I'm planning on doing a revisit-review late September around the 6 month mark, and will probably do another one March next year around the anniversary to see how things have changed since my initial review. Other than that, stay tuned for what's to come. Hopefully the next update isn't too far away! As always, if you haven't already, be sure to follow us over on Twitter and Tumblr, as well as considering supporting us on Patreon if you're able to, as little as $1 a month really goes a long way!
