    I hear ya, I used about 150 bait for a Char. After I caught one I donated it to the Museum and never pursued on catching more. And it's leaving this month, good riddance.

    Speaking of leaving this month, Fireflies are only available on the month of June. Be sure you catch them because you ain't seeing those again till next June. I caught 5 in total. One for the museum, one for my house/island, and 3 for Flick to make a model of one (when he arrives). They're beautiful to watch at night time.:cool:

    I can’t recall if I was when I first tried but I’ll try it later today. As for going to his island, I didn’t because I thought he’d have to personally invite you. I probably did skip through out of muscle memory with Blathers and the Nook twins. Thank you for the suggestions

    Caught that golden river fish thing, along with a ribbon eel, a great white shark and a hammerhead shark, too.

    Okay, might have to take back what I said about the wedding event being well handled. Looks like there's only two types of themes. Suddenly it's not nearly as interesting to do over, but since they still add new furniture, you don't have much of a choice. They could at least change the desired colors, so we could try using different items. Oh well, guess I just got to come with even more ridiculous and wacky photo ideas to make up for it.

    Two weeks later Redd shows up and.... only real are what I own.
    Are you SERIOUS?!
    "Random" my ass, there's no way that is random! Four things in the musuem... and the two real slots just happen to be the ones inside?!

    Thank god it was the Mona Lisa, I was able to trade it off easily for something I didn't own.

    If he can sell repeats, he should appear as much as Lief's useless self does! Nobody needs Lief showing up every other day :rolleyes:

    It's absurd to me that between Leif & Redd, Leif is the one they decided should be guaranteed weekly

    He's the worst since only like one bush is in season, making the other ones worthless to get.

    At the very least Redd should be able to double up with another visitor. He is totally segregated from anyone else's space and has his own shop icon! If Celeste & Wisp can wander around at night despite other visitors, then so should Redd.

    You know, I completely get the pain with Redd, but at the same time, I kind of don't mind having something like art as a long-term goal. A lot of stuff in this game feels like it was tweaked from previous games to make it happen at a faster pace, so having one thing that occurs slower doesn't necessarily bother me. This is a game I plan to play for years to come.

    (Given, I never actually completed the art section of the museum before in any game, so maybe I'm just desensitized...)

    Art's already a pretty long-term goal, though. Ignoring the lead time on needing to upgrade the museum and donate enough to get him to show up, if Redd showed up every single week and each week he had a real version of a painting you need it would take at minimum 43 weeks to fill out that wing of the museum. That's a really long time to begin with!

    It's a long time out of the context of Animal Crossing, but in-context I don't know if you can really say 43 weeks (or about 10 months) is all that long, given that the bug and fish sections will take around 10-12 months to complete. I was basically saying that I don't mind having a goal that takes longer to complete. Of course, the odds of duplicates means it will probably take more than a year anyways, but not necessarily multiple years. Seeing as pretty much everything else in this game can be completed in about a year at most, I kind of like the idea of something taking 2-3 years.

    Everything in every game can be completed in about a year and I think that's like...more than enough.

    10 months is a long time in the context of animal crossing. Nothing should take 2 years (!) to complete.

    It took me a whole month to see Redd after the first time, and while I'm fairly certain I must have missed him one week it's even more insane that it could take this long for me to see this dude again. I'm lucky that the first visit had two real paintings and his last visit was another new one, but factoring in duplicates I don't see how we're finishing the art collection in a reasonable time frame. Like, anyone who's keeping up with bugs and fish is easily going to be done with that in about a year, and it's not at all unreasonable to have the entire fossil collection done in a few months, even less if you have friends keeping tabs on missing fossils because you get several checks every single day.

    What I don't need is to see Leif tell me about the azalea for the 100th time, thanks.

    This just kind of circles me back to my original post. I completely understand the pain, but at the same time, on a personal level at least, I'll probably be playing this game for at least a year regularly, and then at least another year or two semi-regularly anyways, so I might as well have something to try to accomplish during that time.

    That being said, I'm not advocating that it should take that long, simply that I don't really mind if it does.

    If you're the type who TTs, you can go a day after Redd appears, go back to Redd day, and new artwork will spawn.

    That said, fake valiant statues are in high demand. Made 40 NMTs off of giving one away.

    Yeah Leif is the only visitor I ignore. I'm fine with my flowers and azaleas. No need to buy more.

    Make me replace him with somebody else plz.

    Leif is fine IMO, it's just that he'd be better suited to a permanent shop. Him and Kicks both, honestly. If they did have permanent shops, that would take two of the guaranteed weekly visitor days and open them to other visitors. We already know that you're guaranteed to have Leif, Kicks, and Saharah each week, while Flick, CJ, Redd, Label, and Gulliver fight it out for those last two days. What kills me is Gulliver and Label; they're sort of a one-and-done deal yet they occupy the visitor slot for the entire day.

    I really wish certain visitors could occur concurrently, such as Label + any non-plaza visitor, or Redd + another visitor. Some of these being limited to just one visitor per day is what makes them lose their luster. I'm not unhappy to see Leif today, especially since the Hydrangeas are in season now so I can start working on those, but when it's been 3+ weeks since I've seen Redd... maybe I'd wish for someone different, especially since in theory as long as you don't have two NPCs competing for the same space (namely, the plaza) they could have appeared together rather than one per day.

    So, I was in a little of a time crunch today, so I decided that for the wedding photo today I would just see what happened when I placed as many wedding furniture items as I could by simply spamming the place button. Doing this got me the most heart crystals I've ever gotten with 11. Now I have to question what the point of even doing this event properly is, if all I need to do is spam one button and get a bigger reward than normal in a fraction of the time, but I guess it will make life easier once we all inevitably get sick of this event.

    Kicks should have had his own shop. He is really the only reliable source to buy multiple bags and shoes from in one trip. The Able Sisters only have one bag in the store at a time.

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    I got my first unannounced meteor shower today.

    I also failed catching the Goliath beetle for the fourth time. :<
