5 Animal Crossing New Horizons Island Ideas - ACNH Island Design Tips

1. Basketball Court

This Animal Crossing island idea is just using some custom paths that mark out the necessary signs for the basketball games. You can buy two basketball hoops from Nook's cranny and use them to create the necessary setup for the court. If you do not have much room, you can go around and find a corner to put the item into without having to drastically remodel everything. Another thing you need to do is to lay down the wooden planks or something else looks like the flooring you could play basketball on, it is one of the pre-existing pathways because you would put custom Animal Crossing items on top of it. Then lay down the lines all the way around you, find the center point and put the circle in the middle, then put down your two hoops now again. Finally, add some spectator chairs and a basketball there to complete the look basically.

2. Fake Bridge

Before creating the custom bridge design, you need to know how many you already have in your island, may be you have reached the limit. You essentially go and do is to dig out the land and use different elevations and down below, put the water in and fill in the gap with the terraforming tool, you can then lay down some custom pathways as a fence on the top to create a nice bridge. If you want to do a stone bridge, you could do something similar and put fences in either side. If you have enough space, you can extend the bridge, when you’ve got enough depth and distance, you can actually get nice effect where you can see river on either side. 

3. Fossil Dig Site

The third Animal Crossing island design is for paleontologists. If you want to have a fossil dig site, you need to hollow out some land and work with elevation. You can just do one layer and go two layers deep. Begin with some kind of square, you can through sand or earth down, once you built up the land around to create the dig site, throw down some rope fences around to make it look like roped off the area, so people can't get there, that is this cool fossil design. Lay six different tiles down and then using the nice perspective of the sort of Animal Crossing camera when you stand up higher. You can also add some items like spade on display and a ladder down to add the overall look.

4. Island Park

Build an island on your island is also a distinct idea for Animal Crossing! Surround a circle of water around a decent land and turn it into a beautiful scenic park. Add a bunch of pebbled floors, a water fountain, some seats, and fill them with trees and flowers. You can even take a step forward and turn your entire island into a bunch of interconnected islands. However, if most of the island is water, you may encounter some difficulties.

5. City Streets

You can also create a series of urban landscape and buildings. From the street market to the prosperous city, Animal Crossing players have developed some wild industrial areas. A lot of things come down to making everything look super busy, but it helps servers glow in the dark and look like tall buildings at night. Probably one of the most common islands for players, you can find many roads, unique signs and cool stall designs here.
