An Animal Crossing player has revealed how to create the perfect fountain, using terraforming tools and a single decorative item of players’ choice.
An Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has discovered the trick to creating picture-perfect fountains without the need for any fountain items found within the game’s catalog. Animal Crossing players are still discovering new and innovative ways to decorate their island getaways, using everything from the game’s own tools to useful bugs like the Animal Crossing pool glitch.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a designer’s best friend, offering a myriad of ways for creative players to bring their dream worlds to life. Along with design tools and lots of catalog items, gamers also have the option of terraforming. Terraforming is an end-game unlock that allows the base island to be tailored to players’ wishes with Cliff Construction and Waterscaping. Armed with both of these abilities unlocked, Animal Crossing fans can easily transform their dull island with some multi-level magic, even adding lakes, rivers, ponds, and waterfalls. One creative Animal Crossing fan used terraforming to recreate Hyrule as seen in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, proving just how versatile the tools can be.
Players looking to add grand designs to their Animal Crossing island will want to take notes from TikTok user Sierra_18, whose how-to guide to creating the perfect fountain was recently shared to Reddit by careless_love1800. The video highlights just how easy it is to create picturesque fountains using just one item and the terraforming tools. Sierra_18 begins by marking out and building a cliff measuring 5×5 blocks. The player then adds a second 3×3 cliff layer on top, with Waterscaping used on each of its four sides. Adding a stand-out item to the second layer gives the fountain a personal touch, with Sierra_18 opting for a flamingo. Returning to the first cliff level, players then need to remove three blocks from each of the sides. Finally, Sierra_18 digs out blocks around the fountain for a pond.
This simple yet effective build can be tailored to suit almost any style. As well as opting for the square look seen in the video, players can also use Animal Crossing‘s terraforming to round off their edges for a softer appearance. Adding pathways, flowers, or items to the build can also help turn the fountain into something that fits in well with any aesthetic, making it a wonderfully versatile addition to any island. It’s not the only design tip from the TikTok creator, who has also revealed how to create and design an extra-magical moon pond, as well as revealing flower growing tips.
Creativity in Animal Crossing knows no bounds, with players using the Nintendo hit to make whatever their heart desires. While a fantastic tool for design fans, the title’s gameplay has been criticized. Although ACNH has seen semi-regular updates since its release, they’ve mostly consisted of new items or seasonal events. Players desperately want more to do in Animal Crossing, comparing it to Stardew Valley, which excels when it comes to its gameplay. It’s hoped Nintendo will release new content in the future, but at least players have plenty to design their island with for now.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now on Nintendo Switch.
