You around for cedar?

I've had to put those brick roads to hide my dead grass and to make it stop from dying lol T.T

Unfortunately, paths don't stop grass erosion. But, it's at least covered and you won't damage the rest of your grass if you stay to the paths. Nintendo needs to stop punishing us for wanting to play their games more than we really should (I'm approaching 400 hours).

@6ch6ris6: Regarding using QR Code paths to cover pathways - you have started playing the game in the dry part of the year.
I too preferred the natural unpaved and grassy runways in Wild World (where the grass did not wear away too badly), but New Leaf grass wear is something else!
I got so tired of splashing through muddy paths in heavy rain during June in New Leaf that it didn't take much to convert me, though I agree path designs need to be chosen and sited carefully.
I tend to go for a random, but sort of matching patchwork effect, and I never go over the edges of cliffs or riversides. I have actually come to quite enjoy changing my pathways with the seasons. Also, I don't have any hang-ups about using the many well designed ones that are posted on the ACNL QR code websites, several of which are devoted purely to paths and streams. I find having a designated pathway does help you to "Keep off the Grass".
However, a forecast of snow flurries has been posted by "the powers" on my town notice board, and I suspect I'll be taking up most of my pathways during the winter to take full advantage of the snow. Unless snow patches are confined to grass - in which case I'll have to hope someone will do some effective QR codes of artificial snow.

I have a poop tonne of trees in my town and still have fairly bad soil erosion, my understanding is that flowers were supposed to repair the damage... if that's true it's so slow that it's not noticeable within a month. Believe me, when the grass is lush & green you REALLY see how bad the erosion looks.

Sorry for not adding you by the way, will do it now. Just been busy & missed your post!

I wish I had used the qr brick paths in the beginning. I didn't know my grass would die if I ran all over the place. Sadly, I noticed too late. I'm still enjoying this game but gosh darn I sometimes get sad when I notice how so parts of my town look so much better than other parts xD

I just pathed mine up yesterday. It looks pretty good, but I'm really not a fan of having paths. I think it's because I'm an "everything in its place" guy in real life and I like to just relax and have things unordered in my town. But, visitors are always confused as to where they are supposed to walk, so I'm trying paths for now. I've actually laid them down two previous times and promptly kicked them up, because I just like it wild. But, this is a nicer path than I've had.

my goal is to have lots of forrests so that people will be leaded by the paths (without patterns) that go through the woods. sure i will loose the grass on those paths but thats okay because they are paths anyway. the rest should have grass though. if it doesnt work i can still lay down patterns later.

the thing is people lay down patterns to protect the grass but whats this good for when you dont see the grass anyway because there are patterns other it? xD

I had a blue dot on my AC:NL icon this evening and decided to check the Update Data option. It said there was an update, necessary for certain online functions. I downloaded the update but haven't experienced any changes yet. Could this be a prelude to Miiverse on 3DS integration? I certainly hope they patch AC:NL to make that possible.

Why did you have to post this? Now I'm back to seriously reconsidering having paths.

Because... because... booooooo! XD

Haha, really it just keeps people from wearing out the grass in areas that you don't want them walking. But each to their own really, quite like my path!

As for forests, I've got trees in grid pattern about 2 spaces apart all the way through my island. Uhm... plenty of fruit to go around!

does anyone know why you cant stack up fruits that you picked up on different days?
i mean the same fruit just one day you pick up 3 and the other 6 of apples for example but you cant stick those together even though you can stack up to 9 usually.
can fruits rot after they dropped from the tree? or why the hell cant i stack it all up? it sucks

@6ch6ris6 I have a similar idea for my town. I laid out some natural kinds of pathways- you can run around in my town as much as you want, but I've separated the spots where I'd like to keep grass by using bushes. They act kind of like fences, with the grass and flower on the other side of the bushes. So my town is full of bushes(not completely done yet, still).

IIRC I was getting all of my cherries on different days, and managed to stack 9 of them together fine. That's really strange.
