Fall is not only my favorite season IRL, but also in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It’s been that way for years. The cozy sweaters, the red and yellow leaves, and now the pumpkins and pinecones—what’s not to love? As I near 1,000 hours of gameplay on my island Undella, I thought: now’s the perfect time to share another glimpse into my world.
A lot has changed since my last dream address update. I rearranged a great deal of the map and added new residential areas. I got rid of my organized orchard and scattered the fruit trees to fit more naturally, updated my entrance and the Urban Center, as well as added a lovely little spot to celebrate Thanksgiving outside this year. One of my favorite new additions, perhaps, is a Bed & Breakfast near my house, where visitors can come and stay the night in a cozy little hotel.
I left a great deal of my beaches empty—save for some public fishing spots—since they’re closed for the winter. (Which is a nice way of saying I ran out of ideas!) And I welcomed new residents onto my island, so if you do stop by, be sure to introduce yourself and check out their cute homes!
Welcome to Undella
I’ve always loved the modern look of urban islands and the cozy feel of cottagecore forests, so as I dreamed up what kind of island Undella would be, I had a tough time choosing. Then I decided I didn’t want to!
Undella is a cozy, natural island with an urban center and residential countryside. Here, there are shopping districts, a post office, and a lovely Bed & Breakfast for visitors who want to stay the night (or two). Then, as you venture out into the outskirts of town, you’ll find an overgrown forest with residents who tend to their orchards and flower gardens. There, it’s quiet and cozy, peaceful and welcoming. And there are plenty of new friends to meet.
Entrance + Culture Distract
When you dream of Undella, you’ll start at Resident Services, which is smack-dab in the middle of the culture distract. The path to the right leads to the small local post office and park, while the one to the left takes you to the museum. The beachside Able Sisters shop is also nearby.
Bed & Breakfast + My House
If you keep going past the Able Sisters Shop, you’ll cross a bridge that leads to our cozy Bed & Breakfast, where you can rent a room for the night. Upstairs is our loft room and downstairs is our cozy bar and lounge. Keep going up this path to reach my house, which includes a cozy outdoor crafting station and private farm.
Urban Center + Residential District
If you went to the left and follow the cobblestone path, you’ll eventually reach the community beachside campsite. Near there is Nook’s Cranny, where you can take care of all your shopping needs. Continue onward to reach a stone staircase that takes you to urban residents Pashmina and Wolfgang. Fun fact: their houses and yards are among my favorites on the island!
The Residential Forest
To the west—and perhaps the largest section on the map—is the forest. Here you will find fruit orchards and mushrooms aplenty, as well as several residents living in solace. A lighthouse branches off along the west beach and Waterfall Lake is located between Vivian’s house and the museum.
If you keep going up the wooden staircase, you’ll be greeted by a rainbow garden. Nearby is the community peach orchard, our native fruit, and beyond that lies the north beach. Here, we’ve also set up outdoor dining tables for a cozy Thanksgiving feast.
