I'm really letting myself get too excited for this game. I spent so much time in Wild World, really been itching to have more portable Animal Crossing.
You? My excitement has been off the charts lol. At one point during the summer, the wait for information and a release pushed me so far as try and create my own Animal Crossing demo lol. I only got so far as to learning and creating a wireframe mesh of the male character in the 3ds version using the free 3d modeling program Blender. I used the character images released at the time as reference and was at a point where I was going to start texturing it. I don't really think I would've gone as far as creating a full working Animal Crossing clone but I at least wanted to import my character into a 3d animal crossing styled village created with Blender and 3d Rad (another free game developing software I found).
But school, work, and life in general put those plans on hold. I really think there is so much they can do with Animal Crossing that its killing me to see such small improvements with each release. This one does seem to be pushing the envelope more so than I would've expected but still not as far as I would like. Hopefully I'll get back to it during the winter break or summer. If I ever get to the point of getting a working demo up, I'll be sure to post it here and see what everyone thinks.
One thing that has me wondering though is that if you play as the mayor of your town, what happens if you have 4 people living in one town? There can't possibly be 4 mayors in own town. I hope they allow multiple villages on a single cartridge. That would be sweet as it'll bring back the feature of visiting other towns through a memory card as in the GC version. This would allow people to at least visit another town if they don't have internet access to go online.
