August/September in Citaluna!

I keep meaning to update more often, but I either a)don’t have enough interesting things to post about or b)life happens-this past month, I moved back up to school for the semester. I will only be able to wifi up here occasionally because the 3ds does not support my school’s wifi, so if I want to wifi, I’ll have to go to a friends’ house off campus  (or when I go home for the weekend) 😦  But enough business for now! My town makes more progress everyday and lots of stuff has happened since my last post!

Villager Happenings

Lolly and Julian look like they are kissing in this picture? Cute! Wonder if it tastes like pear? lol

HNI_0037

Sounds familiar…..

About time this got suggested…now to get that wisteria trellis from her and Cookie STILL needs to suggest the fairy-tale bridge!!!

 

Around Town

Enjoying some of the wonderful fireworks and meteor showers that happen in summer! Really missing these,  but the winter season will bring auroras!

Wow…everyone is getting rid of their refrigerators…

Lolly and Kiki are next door neighbors and  I did some landscaping to match each of their houses! Lolly’s is more spring like and Kiki’s is more summer like with a hint of spring! The orange goes really nicely with her house and the lighthouse 😀

I won the bug off! (How couldn’t I with a golden stag?) 😛

My first blue rose!!! Now if I could only get one more, I could breed them and have tons of blue roses! They are really tough to get even with the special red offspring (about a 5% chance).

 

Moving in More Dreamies!

Got Bruce moved in without too much trouble!

Beau on the other hand was super frustrating! This kept happening! He kept moving THREE spaces away from the PWP instead of two spaces. It was this exact same spot every time…

HNI_0028

I was getting super frustrated after about a week (I don’t know how Amy did this with Pango for practically a month! I was going crazy after a week!)I removed the PWP and started putting bells in the area I did not want him to move. I think they can still move on top of them, but it makes it less likely maybe? Regardless, I got Beau into his new spot at last!

HNI_0029

Welcome Beau! I love his house! Reminds me of late summer/early fall with the mountains/wildflowers!

HNI_0051 HNI_0053

I finally got Purrl to move back! (Apparently, my boyfriend just needs to be sitting by me,  and the game does exactly what I want!) I loaded up the game that day with him there to show him how stubborn villagers are about moving an Purrl pinged me fist thing-I swear this game hates me and loves him 😛 I figured Purrl would then take a while to move in like Beau did, but it only took like 30 minutes! (You can see that I switched to my fall paths in this picture  🙂  )

You know what this means?

NO MORE PLOT RESETTING IN CITALUNA!!! 😀

This means that Noelle can finally move out of her tent, I’ll have 10 more spaces for patterns, and I can stop putting flower beds everywhere for house repellent! I can’t wait to do the next post when I will have Noelle’s house starting to look like a winter castle! I’ve been focusing mainly on the outdoor part of my town and I hope to finish that soon so I can start decorating rooms!

Second Town Coming Soon!

Now that I have all my dreamies in Citaluna, I feel like I can start planning my second town. I want my second town to have:

-Blue Train Station

-Blue Town Hall

-Apples

I would love to have circle grass again as well, but I feel like it should be another pattern since Citaluna has circle grass (but if circle grass shows up, I’m not complaining lol). I’m also going to be way less picky about the map this time. I could go for a side facing waterfall or a south facing one. I think there are a lot of maps I could make look good! I feel more creative now that I have planned my very first town, so the prospect of a map I don’t initially see potential in, isn’t as scary! Thanks to everyone for giving me ideas and feedback and forcing me to think more creatively! Amy from a forest life has been especially helpful and gracious in helping me plan my town 🙂

I think I am going to name my mayor character “Lilah” and have Misty and Musetta be residents. I am still going back and forth between Lilywood and Starpass, but I think I am leaning a little more toward Lilywood because there are so many pretty garden/path patterns and PWPs I want to use. Plus I already have Citaluna, which is named after Luna the moon cat from Sailor Moon, so I feel like naming the town Starpass might be a bit too similar. I also like some of the alternate names I came up with for Lilywood (listed below so check that out too).

Starpass
Pros:
-Lilah means “night” in Hebrew, so it would go very well with the name Starpass, since they both reference the night
-I could do a cloud/dream theme on one side of town and a “reality” side on the other
-I haven’t seen another town named Starpass, so it’s unique
-Alternate names: Starmist, Starview, Starwood
Cons:
-Many people have said that Starpass sounds like “Streetpass” which is kinda true…
-It could be read as “Starp-a$$”, which I really don’t want to have happen

Lilywood
Pros:
-Goes well with the name Lilah (L’s sound good together)
-The whole town could be a beautiful garden with elaborate landscaping for the villager houses
-Lots of garden-like PWPs and qr codes
-Alternate names: Lilyview, Lilypass, Lilyside
Cons:
-Pretty generic name and probably a few towns with that name
-Lilah of Lilywood seems just a bit cliché

Hopefully I’ll have a final verdict soon!

A Random Post About Random Things

Sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately. Things have been a little hectic here with moving back up to school and whatnot. I’ve also been dealing with financial aid stuff for the past few weeks, which has been affecting my class/work schedule and stressing me out like crazy! I think it’s finally sorted out though. I have been (and still am) waiting for Purrl to be ready to move from my boyfriend’s town back to Citaluna, but she’s being super stubborn! Once she moves, I’m going to have to plot reset for her (the last plot reset though!!!!). In the meantime, I’ll post about a few interesting ideas for my second town, plus I now have artwork of Melody thanks to artiststape from reddit 😀

Art of Melody!

Melody gazing out at the ocean from the beach in front of her house! So summer-like!

Ideas for My Second Town

I’ve come up with a few name ideas for my second town and it’s mayor:

Town Names:

Starpass, Lilywood, Sunshire

Mayor Names:

Lilah, Musetta, Misty, Ellie

Which one is your favorite and why?

(I may eventually think about getting a third town, but for now I am almost too busy to consider a second town 😛 )

Theme Ideas:

Lilywood-garden theme with the zen bell and wisteria trellis, tons of trees, cottages and zen-castles

Starpass-could also do a garden theme there and have a garden theme side of town and a “dreamlike” side of town with cloud pathways

Sunshire-still brainstorming on this one

***Hopefully I’ll be able to do another post about Citaluna soon! I just re-landscaped by Kiki’s house and I’m super excited to show you guys 😀 I’m also redoing the area around town hall for the umpteenth time, but I think I finally may have an idea I like!
