…that “No sweet without sweat” would exactly describe the effort to get the neighbour’s pic?
Thea asked me to do a guide for this and ok here it is.
So what have we to do to make neighbours our friends?
1. Talk to them daily
Just go to all neighbours and have a little chat with them. When they are sick, buy medecine and give it to them, they’ll appreciate you for this. All townies might give you little jobs like giving letters or presents to other townies, just obey them and do it as soon as you can. Also be always kind and praise them, never be rude (but that’s obvious XD)
2. Buy items for them
When they ask you for clothes, fossils or furniture, give the desired objects to them:
3. Don’t forget arranged meetings
Sometimes they ask you whether they can visit you. Of course you have to say yes and just settle a time, when you have best time for him, but don’t forget it. They will send you a letter later and most of the time a present in it when they were pleased by the visit. (mine are even pleased although my room is messed up with turnips 😄 )
4. Wave to them sometimes
You can wave to them by tapping with the stylus on them from a distance 😉 .
When they bow to you your friendship isn’t very good yet, but when they wave with one hand, they honestly like you and the chance to get a pic is really high. This theory seems to be wrong, it depends on their personality if they would bow or wave 😉
5. Write letters with gifts
I’m almost too lazy to do this but they will ask you for a letter when they want one. Then I force myself to write a letter, put a present into it and they will be happy.
So when you did a lot of things to them how do you know they like you really? Indications for that are:
they wave back when you wave to them
– when you delivered a letter, the receiver shows you the letter
– they say to you kind things like “we should go in twin look in town”
– they even give you hints like “do you know that I’ll give photos to my best friends?” but won’t do it yet
What I do next is…
standing in a corner, where neighbours won’t see you that easily 😄 LOL, really!!
Wait for about 10~15 minutes (I always shut my lid during that time)
Now when you open the DS after those minutes be aware. Don’t talk to the neighbours as they are going to talk to you as soon as they see you!!
Once they spotted you a ting-a-ling can be heard and you see above their heads a “!” or four lines like “\ | | /”
The “!”‘s are a good sign that you might get a picture, but most of the times they want you to buy carpets or wallpapers or shirts from them (do it anyway xD ).
So they run to you and are waiting for that you start talking to them:
Do it with all neighbours who are walking outside, because you can only get pics from those, who are walking around the town not from those who are inside a house. When no one gave you a pic, just go back to the corner where you can wait another 15 minutes and restart this procedure.
And tadaa, I was really lucky this evening and got a pic from Pinky!! 😄
That’s what I do to get my neighbour’s pic 😉
Please tell me more hints and tipps when you do other things like me, I’m curious about that ^^ Perhaps there’s an easier way to get it?
