Ordinances in AC New Horizons: How to change the behavior of neighbors and NPCs

The ordinances are a system that is now available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons thanks to the 2.0 update of the game for all players for free. This mechanic, which has been rescued from AC: New Leaf, is very useful because it allows us to change the behavior of our neighbors on the island and the NPCs so that they do certain things as we want.

So, in case you don’t know how it works, next in this entry of our complete guide we explain what the ordinances are, which ones are available and what each of them does, and how to activate them.

What are ordinances and how to activate them?

As we have already told you, the ordinances are like guidelines that we can choose in AC: New Horizons to “force” our neighbors and NPCs on the island to behave in specific ways. For example, everyone to wake up very early so that the tents are available sooner, or to keep the island clean of weeds even if we are not present.

Requirements for issuing ordinances

The first step to be able to issue ordinances is to update the game to its latest version (at least to version 2.0 that adds this mechanic). The update is free and you simply have to connect your console to the Internet to download it. Keep in mind that it occupies about 7 GB, so make sure you have enough space to install it.

With the game updated, when you enter your game, Isabelle will comment in the daily news release that from now on a new system of island directives has been opened in the neighborhood management office by which we can issue ordinances. To do this, you just have to follow these steps:

  • Go to the town hall building and sit at the Cinnamon counter.
  • Among the available options select “Island Directives”.
  • Now choose the dialog option that says “Ordinances”.
  • Cinnamon will inform you that issuing a new ordinance has a cost of 20,000 bells.
  • Accept and you can choose one of the available ordinances. To activate it you will have to pay the mentioned price.

Be careful, it is important to note that in order to issue ordinances you must be the island’s neighborhood spokesperson. That is the main player who originally created the island (in case there is more than one player on the island). Remember that every time you want to change the ordinance you will have to pay the 20,000 bells, so choose well before doing so so as not to spend money foolishly.

All the ordinances and how each one works

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons a total of 4 different ordinances are available to change the behavior of neighbors and NPCs. Here’s how each of them works:

  • Like a whistle: the neighbors will clean the weeds, water the flowers, and take care of keeping the island clean and free of garbage.
  • To get up early: the schedules in the routines of the neighbors are advanced 3 hours so that everyone will be awake earlier in the morning and the stores will open earlier.
  • Nightlife: Neighbors’ routine hours are delayed 3 hours, so everyone gets up later but will stay up longer at night and stores close later.
  • Bells in abundance: all prices on the island increase by 10%, but in the meantime the amount of money you get for selling items increases.

Dialogue suggests again that flick and CJ are more than friends in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Today we bring you a nice story about flick and CJ, two characters from Animal Crossing: New Horizons whose relationship we’ve learned more about with the title’s 2.0 update. Specifically, let’s start with the screenshots below:

As you can see, in addition to knowing that flick and CJ are now living together, it has been discovered that if we build a house for one, the other will automatically move in too.

To this we must now add the advice on love relationships that CJ gives us in some of his dialogues (which makes us assume that he has experience in the subject), as well as what flick’s father, Nat, tells us about his son’s relationship with CJ, stating that he feels happy about the relationship they have.

All this dialogue makes fans think that CJ and flick are more than friends, and some are already celebrating with drawings and other fan material.

We discover a method the Captain uses to decide which islands to take you to in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

We discover a method the Captain uses to decide which islands to take you to in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Many players who rebooted their island for update 2.0 have been finding that the Captain has been taking them to fairly common locations, blaming that to chance. However, there is something else: the game restricts certain special islands depending on the age of our character.

This is how we have been able to find out thanks to our friend Joseph, who has discovered that, if for example, we have not passed a certain date within the game world, we will not be able to access the island that was related to it. To illustrate it in some way, you will not be able to access the winter island (the one with snow and flakes floating in the air) if you have not lived on February 24 within the title at some time. This, of course, can be easily solved by taking a temporary trip (changing the date) or waiting.

We leave you with a list of the rare islands available in the Captain’s trips and the dates that you have had to have lived within the game to be able to access them (keep in mind that the dates correspond to the northern hemisphere, and, on the other hand, that if you have not passed these dates, in case one of these islands touched you, the Captain would take you to a common one instead):

  • Winter Island – February 24
  • Cherry Petal Island – April 10
  • Bamboo Island – May 31
  • Star Shard Island – June 15
  • Seashells Island – August 31
  • Autumn Leaves Island – November 25
  • Setitas Island – November 30

Animal Crossing New Horizons: What the donation box is and how to use

We tell you exactly how to create the donation box in Animal Crossing New Horizons, and also how to make donations to other users.

With the arrival of the great update for Animal Crossing New Horizons, we not only have new recipes and ingredients, but also new functionalities when it comes to decorating the interiors of our houses, in addition to those stores that will fill our island a little more, But there is one element that is going unnoticed that could earn you quite a few bells.

And is that if you are an important user of the community or a very friendly person, it is likely that you can get a lot of additional bells thanks to the so-called donation box.

While creating the donation box in Animal Crossing New Horizons is tremendously simple, it will be much more difficult for you to attract donations from other visitors, but if you are a good user and have a splendid island, you already have a lot of livestock.

Animal Crossing New Horizons: What the donation box is and how to use

Surely you have ever visited the island of some other user and have been delighted, so much so that you would have even been able to leave some kind of donation, not only because of the designs that you have been able to discover but also because they have treated you phenomenally.

Well, after the last update of the game we can buy and create the so-called donation box. Buying it is very simple, since it is accessible at the Nook Stop terminal in resident services, and it costs only 800 nook miles.

To make it, you only need 4 units of wood and 4 units of softwood, which you will surely have.

Once you have made a donation box or several boxes, all you have to do is place them at strategic points on your island so that other visitors can interact with it.

Only you will be able to collect these bells that they have left you as donations, and it would be convenient if you would check it a couple of times a day to see if you are doing things well on your island.

In your case it is exactly the same, you will begin to visit other islands where you will see donation boxes, and it would be recommended that you leave something at some point.

Simply walk over to one of these donation boxes, interact with it, and you will be given the option of depositing 1000 bells or doing nothing.

In this way, those users who are especially friendly, who do good exchanges, and who above all have a spectacular island, will be able to obtain donations several times a day from visitors, and in fact, it is likely that it will become a custom to give thanks. for the visit, something that you should also do when you go to other islands.
