Jacob's Ladder & other stuff

Jacob's Ladder & other stuff

1. What is Jacob's Ladder? How do I get it? Is it something I want growing in my town?
2. How do I get a 4-Leaf Clover besides picking all the clovers I see? How do I get the 4-Leaf clover to grow into more 4-Leaf Clovers or will it? Is there a chance it will die if I try to grow it?
3. Where do I get some grass for the bare spots in my town?
4. On your friends list, what does it mean when you see a heart filled in? A heart not filled in - just an outline?
5. Is there any way to instant message a friend and let them know you are on and are opening your gate?

Any help on these questions would be great. Thanks,

1. A flower. I'm not sure. It's your choice.

2. Some animals bring it with them when they move in. You can buy it on a Flea Market day, or maybe get it sent to you in a letter. You can't grow more. If you put it on the ground, it just returns to the form it was like before you picked it up.

3. Well, I'm not sure you can, but I think that if you put more trees and flowers in your town, you might get the grass back.

4. I have no idea. Sorry... Someone else will no doubt answer this.

5. Not on the Wii. Talk to them in real life.

All the answers the guy above me gave are correct.

As for question #4.
When you get a heart next to your friends name or friend code.... When the heart is shaded in, that means you have visited that town before and you can now send letters to that town. When the heart is not shaded in, that means, your friend has added you to their friend code list and you can visit his/Her town when ever their gate is open. But you can't send letters to them if the heart isnt shaded in.

If you have somebody in your friends list and it doesnt have a heart, that means that person doesnt have you as their friend yet.

Question #5.

No. You have to talk to that person in real life. Call them nwn the phone or send them an e-Mail. And let them know your gate is open.

If you can't contact them...... Then you're going to have to hope you're lucky enough to find some one with their gate open, so you can visit. That way, you can tell that person to come to your town. Or you can stay in theirs. Well, I really hope I answered to of your questions.
Your welcome and happy to help.
Hope to see you someday, dropping by my town. ^______^

#1. You get a Jacob's Ladder flower in Animal Crossing when you have a perfect environment. You need enough trees and flowers and Pelly will say when it is right. If you keep the Jacob's Ladders alive and the environment perfect for 16 days you get a golden watering can.

There is a duplication cheat on animal crossing city folk. What you gotta do is get the stuff you want to duplicate such as money or furniture. Then go to a friend's town. Next, place items on the ground, you can place them anywhere, but I suggest putting them by the gate entrance makes it a lot easier. Then talk to copper and keep pressing the home button while he is talking, and when it works, press reset, after that you items will be in your pockets again, but go to your friend's village, and the items will still be there. This works with money, furniture, or tools, anything you can drop. Also note that resetti will not apear after reseting!

1) The jacob's ladder is a flower. They grow in your town when you have a perfect town. It's good to have them in your town as it shows that you have or had a perfect town.

2) You can only get 4-leaf clovers by picking all the clovers you see. You can't grow more 4-leaf clovers although you can use the cloning cheat. When 4-leaf clovers are on the ground in your town, they can't die.

3) A way to get grass to grow back is to plant flowers or trees on the dirt. Eventually the grass will grow back.

4) If the heart is coloured, it means you have visited the persons town and can send letters to them. If it isn't coloured, you haven't visited their town yet and you can't send letters to them.

5) No, you have to talk to them in real life or E-mail them. If you can't contact them, you have to hope that someone on your friends list has their gate open.

Hope this helps!

With some of your questions, you can't do them anymore because Game Stop was hosting the visiting other people's town thing, and they stopped doing it and Nintendo didn't decide to keep it going, so now it is impossible to visit other people's towns, even though it might look like you can. This makes me mad, and I wish they didn't do that.
