    Ugh still waiting on save transfers so I can get my switch back from my sister.

    Playing a few games on her switch in the mean time but would really like my saves back...

    Any word on this? I seem to remember it being the end of the year?

    I'm always tempted to go back and finish my island but everytime i get annoyed with the fact I have to keep going back to my house to get stored items.

    Wish you could access all your stored items anywhere on the island

    I've lots of leaves and a fair amount of pine cones after skipping summer. Something about lock down makes this game so addictive and enjoyable.

    Anyone got that pine cone bonsai recipe? I don't know how long I can grind at these sodding balloons - I have the blossom one.

    Bah humbug. I want a golden trout for the museum, and if I don't get one by tonight I've got to wait months before it'll be available again. Spent all evening digging up clams, making bait and pulling fish out of the river at the top of the island. Best part of 150 fish but not one sodding golden trout!

    I caught the final fish today, whoo! Now I can swank around with a golden fishing rod and make everyone totes jells. :)

    Just have the dung beetle left for the insects, think that one doesn't turn up until it snows.

    @ghearoid I'm now in this same position. Just 2 sea creatures to get too. I've also got 37 rusted parts in my inventory so I can't be that far off getting the golden shovel.

    On another note, has anyone got the plain canvas Kids' tent? And if you have any chance I can come over and add one to my catalogue?

    Has anyone got a white lamp post they can send me? I was thinking that they might look nice this winter.... what has this game turned me into!

    Some of you have me on your friends list

    Rusted parts? Are they useful? The box in Resident Services is filling up with 'em but I just leave them there. Should I be collecting them?

    You need the rusted parts to make the big robot thing. That's their only use as far as I can see. I was using them to see how close I was to getting the golden shovel, but that got fucked up with the introduction of pirate Gulliver (which also gives a rusted part), that don't seem to count towards getting the golden shovel.

    @Pipedream I only have the green street lamps, I agree the white ones look better though.

    This game has obsessed me through lockdown.

    What's the best way of setting this up for multiple local users? I'm getting the family a Switch for Christmas, but I've read that AC doesn't have full per-person saves. Wondering if it makes sense for me to have the 'main' save, so that the kids get the same but limited access to the game to avoid squabbles?

    @RaymondLuxuryYacht

    The main player is responsible for unlocking everything so make sure you want to play it enough to do all that, otherwise the kids will be squabbling with you instead of each other. :)

    @ghearoid

    Heh! Good point... I guess they could both use my save from time to time though if they need to move things along a little. Is there much they miss out on by not having the main save themselves?

    The extra players cant do much outside of gather resources and fancy up their own house, so if its for one of the kids, let them play it first and they will be the primary resident. Whoever boots it up first will control the 'story' progression.

    Either that or switch lites all around.

    Yes! I caught the dung beetle today and completed the bug museum. Rather good.

    Also built my first snowman after several aborted attempts and the little shit still threw some shade at my effort. :)

    The only dung beetle I've seen today so far rolled himself into the river before I could catch it.

    My first snowman was rubbish. He took pity on me and gave me a DIY anyway. The island looks fabulous with all the snow.

    Caught the dung beetle and now have the golden net. Just the shovel left to get.

    What are your dream addresses so I can visit your islands in the snow?

    I know this question has been asked one million times but if a save gets deleted is there a way to recover it ? I do not have the energy to start again and will sell the game if this is the case as i suspect there isnít

    Anyone got a spare Christmas tree DIY? Seems a bit mean to make it a hard to get item, popped a lot of balloons but don't have any tree recipes
