You'll have the opportunity to change the landscape of your ACNH island from Keith Norris's blog

Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the latest game in Nintendo's adorable life-simulation series, which revolves around the player character starting a new life on a deserted island, was released on Friday after nearly two years of anticipation and has already won the hearts of gamers all over the world, according to the publisher. My colleague Palmer Haasch described the game as "a perfect game for alleviating social distancing woes" because of its emphasis on escapism and spending time in nature, which he said was "just in time."In contrast, if you've never previously played an Animal Crossing game, it can be easy to become disoriented and confused about what you should be doing at any given time. The game rarely provides you with explicit objectives, and it is largely up to the player to devise their own time management strategy.

Beginning the game and establishing your own island
The check-in counter is located on the first floor. You'll be greeted by Timmy and Tommy, the Nook Twins, as soon as you begin playing the game, who will assist you in becoming acclimated to life on a desert island. It is here that you will make the first decisions that will determine the course of your New Horizons adventure. They'll start by asking for your name and birthday. This has little impact aside from how other characters refer to you and when you will receive birthday presents from them. After that, you'll be able to make changes to the appearance of your character. In contrast to previous games in the series, you have complete control over your character's appearance, allowing you to choose the hairstyle, eyes, makeup, and other features that appeal to you. And don't worry if you're not sure about your design at this point; you'll be able to change it whenever you want later on in the game.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you'll have to decide which island you'd like to call your home. Following your selection of which hemisphere you're in (which will have an impact on the flow of the seasons throughout the year), you'll be presented with a choice of four different islands to explore. Every island is roughly the same size and has roughly the same amount of resources as the other islands. While there are no wrong choices, I'd recommend looking for the section of the island that has a small white leaf symbol and selecting the island that has the greatest amount of shoreline connected to that section. Because you'll be stuck in this section for the majority of the game's early stages, you'll need a lot of Animal Crossing Bells.

Later on in the game, you'll have the opportunity to change the landscape of your island. If you make a decision about an island, a name, an appearance, or even your birthday and then immediately change your mind, don't panic — simply return to your Switch's homescreen, close the game, and reopen it. In this case, you will be able to start the check-in process all over again from the beginning.

Setting up your tent and exploring your island are two important steps.
After a brief in-flight movie, you'll land on your new island and be escorted to the plaza where you'll spend the rest of the day. Here's where you'll meet your neighbors — your island starts with two — as well as Tom Nook, the island's fearless leader, who will guide you through the game. As you make your way to the plaza, take note of the flowers and sticks that have been scattered throughout the grass. You won't be able to get your hands on them just yet, but they'll be critical in the near future. Tom Nook will greet you upon your arrival on the island before instructing you to choose a location to pitch your tent. It is possible to purchase a tent from either Timmy or Tommy.

Your tent will serve as your base of operations for quite some time — it's where you'll start the game when you turn it on and where you'll most likely store your belongings — so choosing the right one is critical. You'll quickly discover, however, that there isn't a lot of available space to work with. Your starting area is completely surrounded by impassable rivers, which means that at least half of your island is inaccessible at any given time. With this in mind, choose a location that is close to the island plaza — you'll be spending a lot of time there, so you might as well make your journey there as short as possible.

Keep in mind that erecting your tent over a tree or rock will result in the devastation of that resource. Unless you plant trees later, rocks will reappear somewhere else on the island in a few days, and trees will disappear unless you replant them sooner. It is possible to imagine what the final result will look like before making a decision on where to put your tent, which is a great way to see what resources will be displaced. Once you've finished setting up your tent, return to Tom Nook's location. Upon receiving your congratulations, he will ask you to assist your neighbors in erecting their tents as well.

This is an excellent opportunity to get to know buy ACNH Nook Miles Tickets. Locate each of them (they won't be far away) and speak with them individually. They'll introduce themselves and ask if you'd mind allowing them to set up their tents. Otherwise, simply say, "Looks good to me." If you have strong feelings about where your neighbors should live, tell them you'll find them a place. And if you don't like the neighbors you've been assigned for whatever reason, you can reset the game and be assigned new neighbors. Keep in mind, however, that doing so will send you all the way back to check-in, where you'll be forced to choose from yet another selection of random islands.
