_____D. Tips_____
a. Tips

<-Getting a Tan->
If you want to get your character a tan, go to your island and stand outside for 
about 10 minutes. I suggest you use a parasol unless you want a sunburn. (None of 
the animals notice though.)

<-Sending Letters->
It's a good idea to send letters to the animals in your town. When you send a 
letter, make sure it's long and uses real words. Also, if you attach a present to 
it, the animal may send you a letter with a present attached.

<-Balloon Gifts->
Sometimes you will see a balloon with a present attached. Follow the balloon until 
it lands in a tree and then shake the tree to get the present.

Note: The present won't always get stuck in a tree and it will just float away.

<-HRA Rating Boost->
If you want to boost your HRA Rating, pick a series such as the following: Blue, 
Exotic, Cabin, Ranch, etc. For example, the exotic series has these items: Bed, 
Wardrobe, Bureau, Chair, Bench, Table, End Table, Lamp, Screen, and Chest. Along 
with this set you must have the Exotic Wallpaper and Rug. 

Note: This goes with all series items.

<-The Dump and Lost n' Found->
Everyday you can find stuff that people didn't want in the dump. Also, check the 
Police Station everyday because it also serves as a Lost n' Found.

Note: If you have more then 16 items that you want to dump off, bring a shovel and 
you can dig holes in the ground and bury items. This will cause the dump to be able 
to hold 32 items total.

b. Golden Items

<-Getting a Perfect Town->
Here is an easy way to get a Perfect Town.

1. Collect enough fruits and saplings to have 12 to 16 trees in each acre.
2. Chop down every tree in every acre.
3. Talk to the Wishing Well and ask, "How are things?"
4. Go to the acre it tells you to and plant 12 to 16 trees.
5. Repeat this process.
6. Wait two weeks.

-Alternate Way-
1. After planting all of the trees, go to the Set Clock option.
2. Set the time back one month and start the game.
3. Reset the game and set the time forward one month.
4. Start the game as usual, listen to Mr. Resstti/Don talk to you.
5. Speak with the well and ask, "How are things?"
6. Farley will appear and give you a Golden Axe.

The Golden Axe never chips or breaks.

1. Acre B-3 and all of F are not required places to plant trees.
2. There must be less then 3 weeds per acre and less then 30 total weeds.

<-Obtaining the Golden Shovel->
This is the way to get the Golden Shovel which has a chance of digging up bells.

1. Have 2 shovels.
2. Find a glowing spot.
3. Dig a hole on the glowing spot and plant a shovel.
4. Wait until the tree grows up.
5. Shake the tree and a Golden Shovel will drop from it.

Note: The tree will be golden and only 1 shovel will come from it.

<-Obtaining the Golden Net->
Catch all 40 bugs to receive the Golden Net which is has a larger net attached to 

<-Obtaining the Golden Fishing Rod->
Catch all 40 fish to receive the Golden Rod which will attract any fish in the area 
to it.

About 10 days before Halloween, you will be able to buy candy from Tom Nook. Buy as 
much as you can in these few days. On Halloween, you will be chased by the animals 
living in your town. One of the characters will not chase you however. Find him and 
speak with him to get a Spooky Item. He will take a piece of candy from you.

Note: If the animals catch you, they will either take a piece of candy, or if you 
don't have any candy, they will transform your clothes and turn all of your items 
into pumpkins and jack-in-the-boxes.

<-Jingle Items->
On Toy Day you will see Jingle walking around. Speak with him to get a Jingle Item.

Note: If you leave the acre and change your clothes then talk to him again, you 
will get another Jingle Item.

f. Characters

<-Pelly, the Post-Office Pelican->
Species: Pelican

Pelly works in the Post-Office. If you have a letter that needs to be mailed, or a 
deposit to make, come to her. She has a thing for Pete.

<-Pete, the Mail-Pelican->
Species: Pelican

Pete delivers the mail to everyone in town so he is constantly flying around with 
no time to talk. Pete has a thing for Pelly.

Species: Ghost

Every night from 12-4, you will hear a voice telling you to come here. This 
character is invisible so you will have to move around until you bump into him. 
When he appears, he will ask you to find 5 spirits that he lost. Use your net and 
search for the spirits. After you collect all 5, take them back to Wisp. You will 
have a choice of having him pull all the weeds out of your town, getting a piece of 
furniture from him, or having him paint your roof.

Species: (I forgot so I'll have to check.)

Occassionally, you will see Gulliver wash onto your shore. Speak with him and he 
will tell you how he managed to get washed ashore. After he tells the story, he 
will give you a unique item.

<-Joan, the Turnip Seller->
Species: Warthog

Every Sunday, Joan will come to town and sell turnips at set prices. Buy as many as 
you can from her and wait until Monday. Check prices with Tom Nook to see if you 
profit from the turnips. Turnips will last a week so you can wait until you have a 
high selling price.

Note: Turnips will go bad if you travel to a friends town, leave them in your 
basement, or wait longer then 1 week.

<-Blanca, the Faceless Cat>
Species: Cat

Occassionally, when you go on a trip to a friend's town, a white cat will walk up 
to you and sit next to you. You'll notice that she doesn't have a face. She will 
ask what you are laughing at and you will get two options. It doesn't matter which 
one you choose so just choose one. She'll ask you to paint her a new face.

Note: She will visit towns sometimes.

Species: Cat

Rover is the first animal you will meet. He greets you on the train while you are 
traveling to ----- town.
