    Edit: Dead thread, with dead links. The saves became irrelevant ever since the update. Plus the links died on their own. It was fun while it lasted.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Welcome to the Animal Crossing New Leaf saves thread, where we all work together to provide save files that everyone can use. You'll get access to all villagers and be able to give them to others freely. It's a good feeling~
    What people mostly look for are villagers, flowers, and bells.

    This thread was originally started by me, but troa11 was kind enough to collect every villager for us in his town. So a big thanks to him!

    These saves are easy to import using JK Save Manager, and anyone can use them. This is for CFW uses only, not Homebrew Launcher users.



    Q&A

    Q: What are these saves for?
    A: These are intended for you to help others, to have everything in your disposal and ready to become the king of ACNL. People treat villagers like shiny Pokemon! So they'd appreciate your help.

    Q: Can I use these saves to help myself?
    A: Nope, not unless you have a separate 3DS with you. You can also have another CFW user help you out.

    Q: Will I lose my own save file?
    A: YES, you MUST backup your own save before loading one of these saves. Or else you will completely lose your save file forever. Once you back it up, you can always return to your save anytime. I won't be held responsible if you forget to backup your save before using these saves.

    Q: Does it work with my version of the game?
    A: Yes it works for the cartridge, digital version, and even the cia version. It should also work for Gateway and possibly Sky3DS if you choose cartridge in JK Save Manager.

    Q: How'd you get ahold of all these popular villagers:
    A: troa11 cycled his town until he was able to box every villager. That must have taken forever! Or he used a save editor to box each villager then backup the save. Either way, he's done major work to get all of them!

    Q: Isn't it cheating to give out villagers whenever you want?
    A: Not really, villagers are randomly generated and don't help you in any way. They're just there for looks. They always move out eventually. Nobody knows you're doing it, so you'll just end up making someone REALLY happy for a free popular villager.

    Q: Would I become popular on AC forums now, can I be a known hero?
    A: No you can't openly give out villagers like this on AC forums. They don't tolerate any form of cheating/hacking. You will be banned for it if you make a thread/post about it. But you're safe to PM users and play it safe. Or post a thread that isn't obvious of what you're doing behind the scenes.


    Villager Saves

    Download

    File size: 4 MB
    Un-packed size: About 250 MB

    A HUGE thanks to troa11 for collecting all 333 villagers and uploading them for us! Though only about 96 are converted to JK Save Manager format, the rest are still in SaveDataFiler format, which you can get here . You must have an understanding of how SaveDataFiler works though.




    Special Item Town Saves

    Download

    Something I created myself. These are towns full of rare items, bells, weed, clothes, furniture sets, etc. Each town holds specific items that you can freely give out to any visitor. All items are laid out throughout the town. Let the visitor raid for anything they please, as the save can easily be reloaded. Check the "List of Special Item Town Saves" below to understand what each save holds.



    Flowers Town


    Download

    A town full of hybrid flowers placed throughout the town, free to take whenever someone is in need of flowers. Flowers are just as popular as villagers~



    All Villager portraits Save

    Download

    Special thanks to @orochi115
    Contains all the villager portaits laid out throughout the town



    All fossils save

    Download

    Special thanks to @Zyfie
    Contains all fossils, laid out throughout the town

    List of villager move dates

    Shows a list of what each villager's move date is.
    Another big thanks to troa11 for creating this entire spreadsheet!
    Helpful if you loaded up a save, and suddenly forgot the move date.



    List of Special Town Saves

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    How to use:

    1. Download JK Save Manager

    1. Extract the JKSV folder from the zip to the root of your SD card, merge if one exists.

    2. Install JK Save Manager then load it up. Go to "SD/Cia", choose Animal Crossing New Leaf, import save, then choose the save you want. Remember the date shown on the save!

    3. Press B until you exit JK Save manager completely

    4. Load up the game, then change the date and time in-game before loading the town. Set it to the date that was displayed on the save. Be sure you change the time anywhere between 1 PM to 5 PM, boxed villagers will be gone by 6 PM.

    5. Add your friend's Friend Code and have them visit, to take anything they want





    Here's some maps I created for my special item towns:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!




    How you can contribute

    There's still 236 villagers that aren't converted to JK Save Manager format. All the popular villagers have already been converted so the rest are just basic villagers.
    To convert the saves, all it takes is simply renaming the folders.

    1. Download the rest of the saves which are still in SaveDataFiler format: HERE
    2. Look on the spreadsheet HERE
    3. Look at the folder name, example: 20159423118374
    4. Find that folder title within the list of saves
    5. Go into the folder until you see a folder named 08300 or something like that
    6. Rename this folder to whatever villager it is based on it's move date on the spreadsheet, example: Rooney 3-2-2017
    7. It's ready to be cut and pasted into: JKSV/Saves/Animal Crossing/
    8. Upload the saves you converted and share them here

    Dibs on Bob. New Leaf is the only AC game in which I do not have Bob. Someone please PM me if you would be so kind as to help move him into my village.

    Glaring contradiction there. :P
    IMO it's still cheating, whether beneficial or not.

    I suppose so because you need savedatafiler
    You could always get someone with a Gateway to help you transfer villagers/items to a real cartridge

    It has! I didn't keep track of time, but I was a freak back when I made all of this. I have no idea how I put myself through collecting all these villagers. The items I already had from when I played the game normally. Nobody has discovered any hex editing for items yet, so this will help in the meantime.

    LOL I wrote all of this when I was sick, and I took Nyquil so I was drowzy. I just never considered free villagers a BAD type of cheat, that helps you in the game. It's like shiny pokemon, it doesn't edit it's stats. But yeah it's still cheating xD



    When you load a character, Isabelle will talk to you. Choose the bottom option for other settings. Then choose change date and time, this is considered time traveling. The boxed villagers are only boxed on a specific date so you'll have to load the right date before you can load up the town.
    I'm gonna add more touches to the thread, It was late when I wrote it.

    Edit: A boxed villager means that the villager has boxes in it's house and ready to be adopted by anyone who has space.

    Edit: he doesn't seem to be appear in the save you mentioned in pastebin and time travel didn't bring him

    Edit2: I can confirm this works! Just re-injected save and went straight to changing date and got myself Lucky :D

    I guess you're right x06xp, I had to dump my own cartridge to make it work, but now I can't get the villagers I want, I TT changing the console's date but even that way there's always 8 villagers and none in boxes, I tried with felicity and marshall with the same results.

    Just want to add; with savedatafiler, .3ds or cia install it shouldn't make a difference, just needs to be the USA dump I suppose. At any rate I was just able to give Tangy to my wife using a .3ds rom. So thanks for that Matt, would you be interested in donations? I have a save file with Dizzy set to move soon that could be added to the collection.

    Extract it with savedatafiler! :D

    The first time I tried it, it didn't work for me. So I re-imported the save a 2nd time which got it to work
