How can I rename my town in Animal Crossing?

  • How can I rename my town in Animal Crossing? Jon Ericson

    I got my son Animal Crossing for the DS for Christmas and he thought it might be fun to name his town after a fish: Pelly: THis is the Crap civic center. What can I help you with?

    We didn't notice until he'd invested some time in his new character. After a good laugh, I tried to help him rename his town and rebuilding seemed to be the only option:

    So, you really want to get rid of Crap?

    He's pretty nervous about proceeding and I don't know what to suggest. Will he lose everything? It sure sounds like it.

    The only other think I can think of is that he has a character on the Wii version of Animal Crossing and there seems to be a way to move character between them. We're not at home at the moment for me to experiment. Can we console him by promising that he can move his Wii Animal Crossing character to his DS? I guess that's unlikely too.

    Any suggestions?

  • Rebuilding the town means that you are erasing the game data and starting fresh. Unfortunately there is no way to rename you town.

    Transferring your Wild World(DS) character to City Folk(Wii) will ONLY keep the catalog and hairstyle of the character. Items and money are not transfered.

After a goblin invasion, we had some casualties, so I decided to remove the houses and build an apartment kind of building. But, I ran into another problem. I built the first floor—it worked fine, but in the second floor, none of the NPCs moved in, and that's the problem. What could be wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

  • In Act I of Lands of Lore: Throne of Chaos, the player must reach Opinwood by crossing Lake Dread in a rowboat. Normally, this crossing occurs only after the player has exited Draracle's Caves to discover that Gladstone Keep has fallen. However: At the time I first played this game (nearly 20 years ago!), I recall that my cousin, who also had a copy of the game, said (paraphrasing; we were 10...]." Is this true? Or was it my cousin's fabrication? (On one hand, I wouldn't be surprised if this was a fib. On the other hand, that big bright window and ladder seem curiously "inviting".)
