    I've actually been playing too much, grinding materials and various goals. Managed to get the museum, shop and my first new resident done. It's tempting to want to min max each day by harvesting absolutely all materials, but that doesn't really feel sustainable.

    @Gl3n I've definitely been playing far too much.




    Gates open, every type of fruit available!

    Anyone sent anyone else a letter yet? It feels weird that the system is tucked away in the airport. It's a great tool for item trading with residents.

    Start working on your home and clothing designs if you fear you're min maxing the game.

    Oh does everyone know you can get 8 stone/ore/clay/gold out of each rock?

    Realised that the less you move away from the blocks the more you get, so it is a time based as to how many hits you can get after the first.

    So always dig at the rock with nothing around it and something blocking behind you (water, wall, tree, holes).

    Since doing this I have noticed getting more frequent gold nuggets. Also if you do this to the tock that gives bells the 8th one is work 8k, totalling 16k from a single rock.
    Can this be explained further? Iím a noob at this. Iíve just been bulking up eating fruit then digging directly at the grey rocks and they explode straight away usually netting one iron nugget and a couple stone.

    Am I doing it wrong?

    Yes. Don't eat fruit before you do that, as you don't want to make them explode (unless they're in your way for building or something).

    Star holes are fossils, give to Blathers

    Beams of light is buried money, dig it up then plant money back in the same hole to grow a money tree

    @PrivateFloyd

    You can hit the rock eight times, but you get pushed back by the recoil. Dig holes one space behind you so you can stay in position (make sure there are no weeds or plants taking up a space surrounding the rock too) then hit away, eight items each time.

    Each day each rock can be hit to get mats. You need to block yourself close to it as itís on a timer from the first hit. Max mats is 8, less if you havenít blocked yourself.
    Eating fruit turns you into the hulk and you smash everything.

    Trees will give you 3 mats a day but using anything stronger than the flimsy axe will cut down the tree on the 3rd hit.

    Stone axe wonít cut it down, just the regular axe.

    Yeah, use the stone axe unless you want to cut it down. It's a bit weird that you can get wood from a tree without cutting it down, but I guess they had to make crafting with wood viable somehow.

    @Zomoniac Ah poo! Nevermind.

    Useful guide to fish prices, so you know which ones to throw back into the water for being worth so little:

    The shop construction was very quick. Dodgy contractors I think.

    My Louie and Merengue are running around the plaza, pretending to be airplanes. Too cute.

    Last night, my Beau and Tammy were singing together. GOTY right there.
