In New Horizons
On the first day after the player has landed and marked their new home at their island, Orville will tell the player that they are unable to fly anywhere or open gates until the following next day. He then allows the player to fly or open gates. The player will have to go through things before flying or opening the gate like in previous titles, they also have the option to have a Dodo Code to share with players locally, online with friends or worldwide if shared. He will also give the player a first time read about local and online play and warnings before proceeding. Resident players who first joined the island can have access to fly to other islands or open their gate. He also will allow players to visit Harv's Island or use a Nook Miles Ticket to visit Mystery Islands.
Orville also handles sending letters to residents and villagers on the island, the player's future self and friends, replacing Pete, Pelly, and Phyllis's roles respectively. The player must at least have their friend visited their island or the player travels to visit their friend's island in order to send letters to their registered friends via friend list. They can only send two letters to the same friend per day.
