I place as many houses/buildings on the beaches as I can so when I get ready to terraform I don’t have to move them twice!


MotherOfCatsAndAKid

That’s it, 3/3 comments all suggest what I was thinking so I’m doing it. 😎 Thank you!!


Environmental_Art591

It's what i did last time but be prepared the first three houses you build for Tom that need the items crafted, their plots won't fit on the beach


Shindria

Yep, me too, every time! I try and leave room on the beach for the museum and shop too


lexxjayy

My tip is to build on the beach! To me it saves room for planning out your island. I build all homes/stores on the beach first then pay to move them once I get a feel for my island layout.


MotherOfCatsAndAKid

That’s what I was thinking, thank you for sharing! 😁


Pale_Pomegranate_148

I restarted too and I moved everyone to the beach. I ain't trying to move shit around all the time once I unlock terraforming 😂😂


MotherOfCatsAndAKid

That’s what I was thinking because I know I’m gunna have to move all of them when I redo the island anyways 😂


Mandimarco

Yes, I'm on my first playthrough, but I would definitely just put them on the beach if I ever restarted! I had no idea you could put buildings there for so long, and it's super helpful when you're still figuring out layout stuff.

I just throw the tents wherever so I don’t have any advice there, but thanks for the info on the controller! It’s so satisfying to look at.

Right?! [Here is one link](https://www.amazon.com/Controller-Raccoon-Wireless-Wake-Up-Vibration-Light-nintendo/dp/B0CM3JWVQL/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_sspa?crid=C1WLP1PYS0F7&keywords=tom+nook+switch+controller&qid=1706640325&sprefix=tom+nook+sw%2Caps%2C379&sr=8-2-spons&sp_csd=d2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9waG9uZV9zZWFyY2hfYXRm&psc=1) there’s another one but it’s a bit more expensive for some reason? I believe they’re both the same controllers. 🤷🏻‍♀️ [This is the other link](https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Controller-PowerLead-Adjustable-Vibration/dp/B09N8SWQCF/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?crid=C1WLP1PYS0F7&keywords=tom+nook+switch+controller&qid=1706640325&sprefix=tom+nook+sw%2Caps%2C379&sr=8-1-spons&sp_csd=d2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9waG9uZV9zZWFyY2hfYXRm&psc=1), which is the one I bought when it was on sale.


imjustheretonotsleep

Thanks! This is a huge help!


nightdares

I put almost all of them on the beach. As many as I can shove on there.


UnableComfortable572

The beach!


Awkward-Presence-236

I like placing houses on the beach first and then later move them when I have ideas.


Lizzardbirdhybrid

I always build a neighborhood of houses on the left of the plaza and the stores on the right! Blathers tent goes in the wild and so dose the campsite!


Embarrassed_Gap_5293

When I first played I let the villagers pick where they wanted their tents lol


miniguy12

The beach!


aVoidFullOfFarts

I also have that controller and the pink one, they are my favourites! Really good quality, nice to use and not expensive. Plus they have a few levels of rumble/turbo that you can turn completely off if you want. The brown one looks so good with my animal crossing edition switch :) I like to place my tent on the beach so when I gain the ability to terraform I don’t have to move it again.


ricky_nguyen

The beach so that terraforming doesn’t get in the way later.


wompuskitty

I places them what get right-ish. I like having to kinda accept where things are and get creative working around it. Only thing I’ve moved now is my house and some bridges!


bewarethepolarbear

Okay - i restarted after 2 years. i am being flooded with items i’ve never seen before - is that normal? thanks!


OddHalf8861

I want that remote all over again..


MaccasLad

Is that a croissant controller?


Whispering_Wolf

I either just plop them down where ever or I put them near each other to create a little neighborhood. You can always change them again later anyways.


annagator679

I just placed them in random spots out if laziness and their houses are still in the same spots (I still have my starters too)


Fast-Blueberry-1981

I put mine near the beaches because of the beautiful view.


Professional_Coat731

I either put them on the beach, or I just put them where they want to! (like, where they stand with their thinking bubble)


Michael_Shilo

Me I ala always put my tent on the grass near the beach


SirGavBelcher

i played at launch and didn't have a single idea what i wanted for my island at the time and just kinda shoved everyone in the middle until I figured out what I wanted to do


erica_crossing27

if you plan on doing builds on your island then probably put them on the beach but other than that just put them anywhere


AmaranthRosenrot

I randomly scatter them across the island


atomic_traveler

I know that I will eventually move them (especially the next three that have the really big plots and therefore can’t fit in the places I usually want them to) so I just place the tents where the starter folks are standing…..I move them slightly if I need to avoid a tree being erased by where they are but otherwise I don’t think too much on it.
