Animal Crossing: New Horizons is full of small details – so much so that people are constantly discovering new things about how the game works. One such discovery is by Reddit user PraiseHolo, who observed an interesting pattern when restoring his island: It seems that your airport can determine the colors of some of the items you have access to, although the theory does not seem to be fully supported yet because of an obvious contradiction with the colors of snacks.
By now, you may have noticed that different New Horizons players have different colored versions of certain items. For each item that has multiple color options, you have a “native”
PraiseHolo explained in the Reddit thread that they were restoring their island to try, among other things, to get a blue airport and black street lights. “After many resets and played the starting job about eight times (up to the upgraded settlement services so I could check the street lamp color), I realized that I only got green street lamps, and after a few resets I noticed that other furniture in Nook Stop also happened After digging through some people’s Nook Stop pictures, I thought that the furniture color is not completely random, they are bound in a group and the street lamp color is locked with the airport color, which is why it was impossible for me to get black street lights AND a blue airport. “
I own a yellow airport, and everything in the picture matches what I have in the game (down to the smaller furniture that fits regardless of the color of the airport, described in the reddish color and purple in the picture). Some Reddit users, however, responded to PraiseHolo, saying that they had different colors on the snack machine in particular, and while most of us at GameSpot discovered that our items matched the PraiseHolo infographic, we also had a person with a difference between the snack machines.
