Project Furniture is a collaborative wiki project covering any and everything furniture. Originally conceived in late 2010, the project had been on hiatus since January 9, 2011 until its revival in July 2014 by Mario. The project has was taken over by sunmarsh in October of 2019 given Mario's absence. If you would like to comment on our progress, please use the talk page. If you're interested in joining, simply add your name to the list on our Members page.

Project scope[edit]

Project furniture deals with officially designated furniture collections. These groupings are used in-game in the computation of HRA scores. These include Series, Themes, Sets, and Categories. While many of the items in the Animal Crossing series belong to these groups, there remain quite a few items that do not fit. These can be found in larger lists of items such as Miscellaneous furniture or List of items in Dōbutsu no Mori. The project also concerns itself with pages that organize items based on their properties (e.g. color, HHA theme), or their function (bed, clock etc). As such, there is no need to create separate pages for each piece of furniture. f

Current focus[edit]

As the Animal Crossing series continues to grow, so does the number of items we must keep track of and display properties for. In an effort to organize this information and streamline its use, we have decided to try and take advantage of a Wikibase installation that is linked to Nookipedia in order to store all of our item data. More information on this effort can be found at Project Database. Use of the database will require that we update all of our current item templates, and item pages. Given this fact, the creation of and maintenance of our larger item lists is generally discouraged at this time, as these are the ideal candidates for future database utilization. Members are encouraged to continue making edits to our Series, Theme, and Set pages as outlined below.

Series[edit]

Most Series 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 series also have a corresponding floor and wallpaper.

Place HHD Icons in City Folk section
Missing Images

All Series 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.

These pages are missing images from early Animal Crossing games (DnMe+ & 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 series also have a corresponding floor and wallpaper.

These pages are missing images from early Animal Crossing games (DnMe+ & prior):
  • Backyard (Carpet & Wallpaper)
  • Boxing (Carpet & Wallpaper)
  • Chess (Carpet & Wallpaper)
  • Classroom (Some item images needed + Carpet & Wallpaper)
  • Construction (DnM images need to be isolated & uploaded (source images) + Carpet & Wallpaper)

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.

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]

Nookipedia uses three templates to generate tables: {{TableHeader}}, {{TableContent}}, and {{TableFooter}}. Each template creates a different part of the table. TableHeader creates a collapsible container for the table and generates the table's column header labels. TableContent formats the table's cells and creates new rows, and TableFooter closes the table and any divs used to create the table's collapsible container. For more info on how to use them, be sure to visit their corresponding template page for documentation or check Project Furniture/Table Templates.

Table style guide[edit]

Because Template:TableHeader can generate so many different tables it's not really feasible to provide examples of every possible type. Instead the following list provides a style guide for how a cell's contents should be formatted depending on the type of information they contain.

  • Item: Capitalize the first letter of every word in an item's name, except for articles or prepositions.
  • Song Title: Used in place of 'Item' on music tables. Capitalization rules still apply.
  • Name: Used in place of 'Item' on insect, fish, and seafood tables. Capitalization rules still apply.
  • Listen: Used on music tables; insert the appropriate audio file. See Help:Audio for more info.
  • Image: Image width should be set to 75px. If the item is missing an image use the template {{MIA}}.
  • Buy price: Always use Nook's catalog buy price (or other NPC's, if applicable), not Redd's buy price. If buy price is not bells, note the currency used. (e.g. 40 medals)
  • Sell price: Always use Nook's base sale price. If buy price is not bells (e.g. 40 medals), note the currency in the sell price (e.g. 250 bells).
  • Available from: How does one acquire the item? Make sure this content links to the appropriate Nookipedia article.
  • Group: (A, B, C, or -) Only applicable to ACWW and older games.
  • Feng Shui: (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Special, Lucky, or -) Only applicable to DnMe+ and older games.
  • Color: (Red, Green, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Blue, Aqua, Beige, Pink, White, Gray, Black, Brown and/or Colorful) Be sure to put the color name in brackets to call the appropriate template. If an item has more than one color, list them in alphabetical order with a "/" between each one. (e.g. Green / Red). In specific color lists, however, list the article's color first (e.g. in "List of pink furniture", always list Pink first). Applicable to ACWW and newer games.
  • Genre(s):(Old School, Modern, Chic, and/or Lovely) Applicable to ACWW & ACCF only.
  • HHA Theme(s): (Harmonious, Antique, Rustic, Trendy, Fairy Tale, Toy Shop, Sci-Fi, or Quirky) If an item has more than one then list them in alphabetical order with a "&" between each one. (e.g. Antique & Trendy) Applicable to ACNL only.
  • Style: (Basic, Cute, Flashy, Historical, Iconic, Modern, Official, Ornate, Rock 'n' Roll, or Sporty) Applicable to ACNL only.
  • Size: How much space an item takes up. ({{Small}}, {{Medium}} or {{Large}}). On fish and seafood tables indicates shadow size instead.
  • Location: Used in insect and fish tables. Notes where the critter can be caught.
  • Time: Used in insect, fish, and seafood tables. Notes which times & months the critter can be caught.
  • Months: Used in insect and fish tables. Notes which months the critter can be caught. The contents will automatically be formatted to be grey and small. Add the appropriate color formatting to months the critter is available in. Remember that equals signs must be placed in brackets to avoid breaking the template.
  • Info: Can the item do anything special? (e.g. Table, Stereo, Storage, Lamp, TV, Wall furniture, Can place on table etc.)
  • Customize: Can Cyrus customize the item? (Yes or No). Applicable to ACNL only.
