@UnknownReader yes you’re more than welcome to, you can add me on Switch too

@foxyflimflam the main island I really want to visit is Tarantula island! I still haven’t even seen one in my game at all so would love to catch one and add it to my museum. I somewhat came across scorpion tonight. I say somewhat as I only seen it as it ran up on me and knocked me out

Does anyone know if the other villagers get annoyed if you talk to them too much?

@MrMeowPuss Are you in the southern hemisphere? If so, you might not get tarantulas until later in the year (it's flipped if you're northern or southern). Since you mentioned scorpions, which are not in my northern hemisphere yet.

Animals can actually become fed up with you if you talk to them too much. But they'll give you fair warning first, and you have be pretty obsessive about it

@status-204 yes I am and that makes sense! When I looked it up they are still around for the rest of April so I guess I’ll see them after that when Scorpions disappear.

I’ve had mine say the island must be too small since we keep running into each other haha. A few mins later they will offer me a gift though so I guess they aren’t that angry with me yet.

@MrMeowPuss A friend of mine who has never played Animal Crossing until this one ended up on tarantula island and ended up making over 170k! I was completely in shock when it was one of the first islands she was sent to.....all while I have gone to I don't know how many and still get crappy ones 😞

@foxyflimflam have you been trying islands at night? I’m still yet to but might give it a try Friday night.

@MrMeowPuss oh yes! I have tried all different times of day and night! At least I have gotten the money island and bamboo 2 times each.....so I guess that is something 😂

Money island was such a disappointment when I eventually got to it. It's so much more lucrative to get tarantula island or to just raze an island to the ground to spawn tarantulas in the evenings.

Tarantula islands only occur after 7pm I believe, as that's when tarantulas can spawn. What you can do after 7pm on any island is make it a tarantula island:

  • Chop down all trees and dig up roots
  • Pick all flowers (don't have to dig them up, just pick the flowers)
  • Remove all rocks
  • Get rid of all other insects

You can dump unwanted objects onto the beach. With this done, and after 7pm, tarantulas will spawn pretty frequently

@status-204 The spawn pool will stay too, so you can stay after tarantula time.

@status-204 I heard that the island has to be flat with no cliffs to do that. Is that true?

@foxyflimflam I’ve had it work on islands with one level of cliff just fine, although it makes it more difficult if they spawn on top of it, as they’ll jump off and chase you

I’ve not yet tried on the ones with multiple levels as it seems too cumbersome.

@foxyflimflam This is an intentional design choice. They didn’t want players to be able to gather all the varieties of fruit and resources too quickly.

But it’s still worth going to collect iron and gold nuggets.

As I said earlier, mystery islands, as they are now, just seem like a convenient way to get more resources if your own island happens to be depleted, and I assume the developers didn't want it to be another Tortimer Island where it was easy to get rich catching beetles any time you wanted, but still, even just more varied layouts would be welcome. At least something to make the trips feel more mysterious than simply "Your native island, only smaller".

On another note, I'm already hating Bunny Day. It's annoying trying to collect resources or catch fish only for them turn out to be eggs.

One final note, I wish we could split off the friend code sharing to another thread since it's overwhelming this one and burying the general Animal Crossing discussion.
