Project Items is a collaborative wiki project covering anything related to in-game items, such as furniture, clothing, wallpapers, flooring, and tools.

Members can be viewed at the members list. If you would like to join, simply add yourself to the list.

Purpose[edit]

Project Items primarily deals with the maintenance of various furniture, clothing, wallpapers, flooring, tools, and other items under the Item namespace. The project also concerns itself with pages that organize items based on series, set, theme, and categories, on their properties (e.g. color, HHA theme), or their function (bed, clock etc.). These item pages are linked via a Cargo installation in order to store and query all of our item data. More information on this effort can be found at Project Database.

Series[edit]

Place HHD Icons in City Folk section
Missing Images

The following series needs images from ACWW and prior:

  • Regal (Carpet & Wallpaper)

Themes[edit]

Most Theme pages are missing City Folk images. Due to the similarity of the item models from New Leaf and Happy Home Designer it's been decided to use the HHD icons instead of trying to source City Folk item images. Remember that all themes also have a corresponding floor and wallpaper.

Missing Images

The following themes need ACWW images:

These pages are missing images from early Animal Crossing games (DnMe+ & prior):

Sets[edit]

Most Set pages are missing City Folk images. Due to the similarity of the item models from New Leaf and Happy Home Designer it's been decided to use the HHD icons instead of trying to source City Folk item images. Some of the items that were part of a set in City Folk became customizable in New Leaf and so they do not have an HHD image associated with them. In these cases the image will have to be sourced from a CF guide or from a gameplay screenshot.

Place HHD Icons in City Folk section
Missing Images

All Set pages need Wild World images as their furniture models are distinct from ACGC and ACCF. These images would either need to be scanned from a player's guide or screenshotted using emulation.

Furniture function[edit]

These articles list furniture by function. Most are not updated to list information from all games, are missing items from some games, have empty sections, or are using outdated templates.

Furniture color and Feng Shui[edit]

Important: Due to the large amount of time necessary to create and maintain these pages, they are prime candidates for the incorporation of data from Project Database. For this reason, manual data entry on these pages is of least priority.

Feng Shui is the practice of placing furniture of certain colors in different areas of a room in order to produce different types of luck. Prior to Animal Crossing: Wild World, only furniture which counted towards Feng Shui was given a color designation. The possible color values in these games are Red, Green, Yellow, Special or None. These are noted under the Feng Shui column in these tables because color does not effect anything else.

The Animal Crossing games since Wild World have a specific dual color designation for most furniture. For instance, the Stripe Lamp is categorized as Aqua and White. Some furniture have only one color, while others like the Sleek Bed have two, in this case Black and Black, or Black (x2). While the vast majority of furniture have two color designations, some furniture have one or no color designation. The colors are important as they influence HHA ratings and are referenced when a villager asks for a certain color of furniture. Each villager also has a preference for a certain color and theme for furniture.

The color designations are as follows: Yellow, Green, Red, Orange, Blue, Aqua, Pink, Purple, Colorful, Beige, Brown, White, Gray, Black

Although determining furniture color is generally straightforward,be sure to check out the furniture lists in the external links below to determine for sure.

Furniture master lists[edit]

Important: Due to the large amount of time necessary to create and maintain these pages, they are prime candidates for the incorporation of data from Project Database. For this reason, manual data entry on these pages is of least priority.

These pages list all items in a given Animal Crossing game. Only one has been created so far and has no images. It can be updated with images from Doubutsu no Mori e+ at Category:E+ Items. Some models or textures may be different between games however, so this would need to be verified first.

How-tos[edit]

Main article: Help:Contents

Capitalization[edit]

Rules regarding item capitalization were left to mob rule, a.k.a. public vote, ending on August 18, 2014. The mob voted to capitalize the first letter of all words in item names, series, themes, sets, and categories (e.g., Blue Chair, Blue Series, Sea Bass), so we'll go with what the mob thinks or risk being run over (after all, they must still be pretty mad about the whole soda thing...). Oh, and prepositions or articles should not be capitalized (e.g., Jack-in-the-Box).

Tables[edit]

Tables make up the bulk of most furniture articles. And we don't mean the ones you put your silly computer on. The box below lists some basic wikitext code used to construct a table. Nookipedia uses templates that incorporate these elements, so you don't need to worry about including them when editing furniture articles. However it's still helpful to know what this code does in the event you need to work with raw table coding.

{| indicates start of a table

|} indicates end of a table

! column header title

| creates new cell in the same row

|- adds a new row

Table templates[edit]

Main article: Nookipedia:Project Items/Table Templates

When creating a table of furniture items, it's important to know what templates to use to generate the tables. Nookipedia uses a template using {{TableTop}} to create a collapsible container for the table and generates the table's column header labels. Following this, if there is Cargo data for the game in question, declare a Cargo table using #cargo_query. The table needs to have template under format, have named args set to yes, and use a a Cargo display template for template. This also necessitates the need to declare fields for the table to format properly. If no Cargo data exists for a game, you can use {{TableContent}} and manually add the data in. Finally, a {{TableFooter}} can be added to close the table, and may be used to add a note value based on the need for attribution. For more info on how to use them, be sure to visit their corresponding template page for documentation or check Project Items/Table Templates.

Spreadsheet projects[edit]

The following community-run projects are vital for Project Items.
