Animal Crossing Players Are Using Gulliver Items in SUPER Creative Builds – CBR – Comic Book Resources

Animal Crossing: New Horizons players have made some incredibly creative things using the real-world monuments that they've received from Gulliver.

TheAnimal Crossing: New Horizonscommunity has found tons of creative ways to take their islands' designs to the next level, mastering the game's customization mechanics. They've already found uses forvarious hacked items, such as the fence found on Harv's Island. Players have evenfound a whole host of unique ways to incorporateunique collectible items like thoseoffered by Gulliverinto island designs.

Gulliver's furniture items are all themed arounddifferent locations around the world, such as the Pyramids of Giza, which makes them somewhat difficult to use. Most players willsimply use these items as outdoor decoration, like putting the Statue of Liberty near the docks to welcome new players. However, some creative players have found some fascinating ways to use these items.

These items can be acquired by helping the special NPC Gulliver locate the pieces of his communicator whenever he washes up on a player's island. It should be noted that there are two NPCs who can wash up on beaches that look strikingly similar, these being Gulliver and his pirate equivalent, Captain Gullivarrr. Gulliver, the non-pirate one, is the NPC that gives players furniture items themed around traveling the world.

These island designers have uploaded tons of online tutorials and speed builds to walk players through using some of these more obtuse items. The most popular world travel items seem to be the pyramids and thePagoda.Even if players don't want to use Gulliver's unique item set, some of the techniques players use with their world travel builds can help take a player's island to the next level.

One way that these furniture items are used is through forced-perspective set-pieces, which are perfect for giving islands more of a scenic view. The basic principle behind this design is that, when players look at a series of furniture in a specific way, it can look like a far-away setting. The Pagodas are used frequently with this design style since, from a distance, they can often look like feudal Japan towers.

To do a forced-perspective set-piece, players will need to utilize the terrain editing tools to set up a viewing location for the set-piece. From there, the trick is to design the area to look as though it's much further away than it really is, using smaller furniture items andcustom patterns to complete the illusion. Setting up the forced-perspective set-piece as low as possible will also help sell the visual sinceNew Horizonshas a neat fog effect when viewing lower terrain.

Another more straightforward way that players have been using Gulliver's furniture set is to theme areas for certain villagers. A popular one is giving the popular Egyptian-themed cat villager Ankh a desert-like environment, complete with pyramids. With terrain painting tools and a few palm trees, players can help the pyramids feel right at home in a special themed region of an island.

There are also some smaller buildings the monument-themed items have been used for. Pyramids have been used as roofs for miniature houses made of panels, and the Statue of Liberty's torch has been utilizedas a stylized torch for various outdoor setups. These two methods can sometimes involve small amounts of building glitches and exploits, but they can also provide a unique look to a player's island.
