Once again, Animal Crossing players are showing how much they can accomplish with one tiny feature.
In the new Happy home paradise DLC, Players are using a new buffing feature – which lets you “buff” and polish furniture – to customize their furniture in hilarious ways. Now Animal Crossing fans are using the effects to crack jokes and recreate memes with their furniture.
How do these players do it? Well the new buffing effect is included as part of Happy home paradise. You unlock the new feature after decorating four houses and Niko will teach you how to do it. When you first get it, you start with a glitter effect, but there are other options that will bring out other visual effects like hearts or water droplets.
You can even set a custom design to polish and your furniture will have any kind of look you want. So if you add a custom fire pattern and polish your furniture with this effects set, it will look like your furniture is on fire. You can see the effect below.
This has allowed players to create a myriad of cursed but hilarious effects. Here a gamer added a custom design of Sherb, the goat, so his face haunted the furniture.
Here someone used a flame design to remake the “this is good” meme.
Someone else made a haunted doll.
My personal favorite is this absolutely miserable creation: someone added in Spamton, a character from the game Delta rune using a custom polishing effect in your home. In Delta rune, he’s a character inspired by web browser pop-ups and spam, so we see him popping up here all over the house. It’s a cute way to advance a meme game, especially one that has already inspired a lot of memes.
This example is just amazing. Here a user appears to combine two types of polish, one smoky purple and another glowing, to create a moody scene of an electric sword in a deep, dark palace.
Before that we could customize the color of the furniture and add custom patterns to some pieces. This now adds another layer. Want a dreamy luminous room? You have it! Would you like your turntable emit small musical notes? That works too! It’s a minor detail, but it will again allow players to take the design to the next level.
