More money from bell rocks

Every game you'll find a new rock that contains some hidden bells. You can smack the rock with a shovel to knock some bells out of it. Repeated hits during a limited time period will earn you additional bells, but normally the number is limited somewhat by the step you automatically tack back after whacking the rock. A great trick is to stand against a rock, then dig holes to your left and right, as well as behind you. Now when you hit the rock, it won't send you flying backward. This lets you whack it more frequently to produce more bells before the invisible timer expires, increasing your total earnings.

  • To easily avoid being stung by a bee, just press 'Start' and select 'Save and Continue.' This will refresh the environment and remove the flying bees, avoiding the need to run into a building or catch them. The beehive will still be on the ground after the save completes.

  • You can avoid bees when you shake trees by opening your town gate to allow people to visit. Now you can shake trees for furniture, bugs, and bells without the risk of getting attacked by an angry swarm.

You should eventually get pushed onto/into places you normally can't access, such as the roof of a building or in a body of water.

Cliff Diving **Updated 5 months ago**

You can perform cliff dives straight from your town and into the ocean. Find a section of the cliff that doesn't have any beach area beneath it. Stand near the edge, equip the Wet Suit, and press the A button to ahve your character jump off the cliff and land in the water below. Also, if your having a bad day or have a King Tut mask, you can jump in to rivers. How? I'll tell you. Find a corner to the river then make 2 holes and make sure they are one hole apart. Right now, you can't get in. So put a item in either one. Then go in the middle, turn around without moving, then dig it out. While your character shows you what you dug up, the back round will start to glitch and shake around. Put the item back and you will start. Once done, you run at a angle which makes dust particles at your feat (Remember, you have to have a King Tut mask or be having a bad day to trip). Then you will trip in to the river, and you will be able to walk around in the river just like your on the ground (No water particles will appear). Warning: If you walk on the sides or up a bridge, you will do a magic jump up onto the ground or bridge.

Magic Rocks

In every Animal Crossing game there is a rock in each town that gives out money when hit it with a shovel or axe. It only does this once per day but you can get up to 8,000 bells if you hit it enough. Every day there will be an extra rock in your town. Hit it with a shovel and it will break and reveal a different mineral. You can take these to Cyrus (once he wakes up) and use them as an additional way to make your furniture different. You can also just sell them. Once you have the silver shovel, you have a chance of making gems come out of the money rock instead of bells. Also, you can take 3 gold gems to Cyrus and he'll make you a random piece of a special gold furniture set.

I've read that you can return the grass with the use of fertilizer. But I've also heard this is untrue. Anyone know the truth?

Answer from Black0psJohn

Fertilizer does NOT grow grass, you only get grass from flowers and rain. I wonder where the rumor started because it has been round a while..

In the previous games time traveling would mess up events pretty bad,like certain characters taking forever to show up again and stuff. is it the same for New Leaf?

Answer from SkyrimChamp

Villagers might move away and such, which only stinks when a villager you liked suddenly moves away because you neglecting them. However, the problem with weeds,flowers dying,and cockroaches can be solved by enacted the beautiful town ordinance.
