Life on a desert island can be a little tricky in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, especially when you’re being driven by bees, hard on Nook Miles, or desperate for instructions. Don’t worry we have a few tips in place Animal Crossing: New Horizons to make your journey easier to breathe!
Save Nook Miles in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Nook Miles is a unique currency introduced in New Horizons that can be exchanged for all sorts of goods. Just like in real life, you will increasingly want this to satisfy your shopping needs and of course when you have a lot of money you will think about everything to use it all.
However, you should save your Nook Miles until Resident Services moves from tent to decent building. When this change occurs, the number of items that can be purchased with this currency increases exponentially. The only thing you should worry about before this change happens is to expand your inventory, buy tools, plane tickets, hairstyle and pay your tent to Tom Nook.

Change in appearance
If you accidentally press your character too quickly and make a series of decisions that could be considered a plastic surgery disaster, don’t worry. Just make a mirror with three pieces of wood and one piece of iron. Leave it indoors and interact with it, and you will be able to correct any mistakes you make.
Go to Nook Stop every day
If you want to hunt for easy Nook Miles, be sure to sign up at Nook Stop every day. With each subsequent play you will see an increase in Nook Miles, capped at 300 for 7 consecutive days.
If you are desperate to find a Bell, wait until it gets dark and search around for a spider. They are an amazing source of money, 8,000 Bells per sale. Be careful though, as they are also quite rude and quickly run away if you make a wrong move. They breed frequently, so they will keep the player from getting messed up when trying to catch one.
Tightly smashing and smashing
Sometimes the excited Tom Nook will suddenly notify you of a arduous project that you must start working on right away and on. This usually involves a ton of material, including a lot of iron, stone, clay and wood.
To avoid the pain of having to scramble these things together at the last minute, be sure to smash any rocks and chop down any trees you can find on the island with your stone ax. These resources will be replenished at the beginning of each day.
Run inside to get rid of the wasps
If you cut or shake the tree, a hive may fall and wasps will be able to sting you. If you do, immediately turn around and run in a house, tent or any old building. This is the only way to get rid of them – although if you are stung, you can make medicine using hives and some weeds.
Carefully interact with your Nintendo Switch
The characters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons have 44 different emotions, so talk to all your neighbors every day. They will sometimes talk about how they learned to do something cool and will pass that knowledge on to you.
The recipe on the beach
The easiest way to find new recipes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, is to run around the island’s beaches and look for little bottles. Open them up and you’ll see a cute letter attached to a brand new recipe, allowing you to learn how to make new furniture or clothes.
Ancient fossil trade
Fossil mining is an extremely important part of building a diverse museum, but if you have that fossil in your collection, sell it. Fossils can earn thousands of Bells, making them a pretty good source of quick money.
Fly everywhere in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Flying to other islands not only brings additional natural resources, but you can also meet new characters. Remember eight with them until you see a prompt about inviting them to your island. In a few days, Tom Nook will notify you that a few houses will need to be built to accommodate new guests.
However, once you have built the Campsite, the characters will no longer be found on other islands. Instead, you will have to convince them right in the Campsite.
You can move home later
If you are like me accidentally taking my hand and foolishly putting Nook’s Cranny right behind the town square, don’t worry. Once the Resident Services gets upgraded, you can talk to Tom Nook about where you want to move. However, the cost is very high – 50,000 Bells to move the store to a more attractive location.
New features will be available slowly thereafter
If you can be confused as to why you can use ladders, electric poles or edit the island, keep in mind that those need to be unlocked through your little jobs on the island. If you are unsure or do not remember much, head over to Resident Services and select the corresponding conversation “What should I do” when talking to Tom Nook. He’ll tell you all about Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
