There’s a number of unique features and things for players to accomplish within Animal Crossing: New Horizons. From building furniture, to houses, to various art installations, Animal Crossing: New Horizons gives players plenty of options in terms of creative expression. Although, some in-game creations are more difficult to achieve and require a certain degree of precision.
One of the greatest draws of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is how the in-game content changes depending on the time of year the player is in. For instance, during the Easter period, there will be Bunny Day items that players will only be able to receive and create during a brief timeframe. The month of December brings heavy snowfall in-game that allows players to create “snowboys”, but the dimensions can be a little hard to pin down.
A Reddit user named MidniteCowgirl- made a small diagram out of an in-game screenshot that shows players at what height the snowballs should be. This way, any player can make the perfect snowboy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The user cleverly uses their own in-game avatar as a frame of reference to convey the proper height of the snowballs relative to the height of the player character.
It’s interesting how members of the Animal Crossing community can help each other out in these sorts of situations. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is already a game that is heavily reliant on connecting players with one another, whether that’s through Dream Islands or by travelling to other islands using Dodo Airlines. So, to have a simple diagram meant to help other players out is quite thoughtful.
Despite being nearly two years old, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has managed to retain quite a bit of popularity. When COVID-19 first hit, many people took to Animal Crossing: New Horizons as a way of occupying themselves during the months of quarantine. Since that time, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has continued to capture the attention of many in the gaming community.
In any case, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Animal Crossing: New Horizons going forward. Following the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s final update, there hasn’t been much by way of new content. Considering how many people still actively play Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s possible that Nintendo will continue to support the game for an extended period of time, but there likely won’t be any new content updates. For now, though, Animal Crossing fans can make good use of this Snowboy trick.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
