[Tip] Let's get Seasonal Materials & Star Fragments
Hey, how’s your Island? April is coming in real life, ACNH as well. Unlike woods or rocks, there are some special materials which are seasonal, or obtained in a different way. First, I’m gonna introduce 2 seasonal materials. 1) Young Spring Bamboo
I think you’ve obtained this material already, Young Spring Bamboo. This material can be obtained from Bamboo Tree during Spring season. You can get them by hitting a grown Bamboo Tree with an axe. Bamboo Trees can only be found in Nook Miles Ticket Island, Bamboo Island. When you hit a Bamboo Tree with an axe, both regular Bamboo and Young Spring Bamboo will randomly drop from the bamboo tree. Young Spring Bamboo is a little rarer than regular Bamboo. I recommend you to use Flimsy Axe or Stone Axe rather than Axe because Axe will chop down the Bamboo Tree. Flimsy Axe or Stone Axe will not chop down the trees so you can get the Bamboo in next day again. Also, you can bring Bamboo Trees to your island via eating fruits and dig up them with a shovel. If you bring enough Bamboo Trees to your island, you can farm them freely. Bamboo shoots can only be found in Bamboo Island, dig up the fossiled ground. Here are the lists of Young Spring Bamboo DIY Recipe.
2) Cherry Blossom Petal
Cherry Blossom Petals will appear in the early spring and are found near trees with Cherry Blossoms in them. The petals are floating around the map so you need to swing a Net to catch them, just like catching bugs. However, if you miss the swing for 2 times, the cherry blossom petal what you aimed for will disappear. Cherry Blossom Petals will not appear from Pine Trees or Fruit Trees. In April, all normal trees will turn into Cherry Blossom Trees so it won’t be a big matter. In April 1st, Isabelle (or Tom Nook before you upgrade the Resident Service) will teach you the Outdoor Picnic Set DIY recipe. You can get more Cherry Blossom Petal DIY recipes via other villagers, ballooned gift, messaged bottle. 3) Star Fragment
If you happen to see Celeste the Owl wandering around your town, Meteor Shower event will happen in ACNH. At clear night (not when it’s raining), sometimes Meteor Shower event occures. If a Meteor Shower is happening above your town, you can wish on the shooting stars as they fly across the sky via press A button. Make sure that you’re not holding any tools, and use the right analog stick to look up into the sky. Ideally, you should be positioned so that the sky isn’t blocked by buildings or trees. Shooting stars tend to happen in batches, so feel free to stick around for a while and wish on a number of stars. Next day, you’ll find Star Fragments, Large Star Fragments, Zodiac Star Fragments on the beaches of your island. Total number of amount is same as how many times you’ve prayed wishes last night. Zodiac Star Fragments are depending on what time of the year you experience the shooting star event, you'll get a different Zodiac Star Fragment. By using these items, you'll be able to make a unique piece of furniture based on that Zodiac Sign. (Currently, Aries) You can craft various furniture and0 Zodiac furniture via DIY recipes with those Star Fragments.
