One of the most important features that can be unlocked in the game called Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH is island evaluations. With the thing known as island evaluations, a player like you will be able to build your perfect isle in this game. Apparently, every one of them includes a star rating. For those who are not that familiar with the rating, it is the kind of hint towards how popular your island is with the visitors.
It should be noted that your aim will be to get a three star rating for your island the first time you unlock the island evaluations. With it, you will be able to unlock a lot of different rewards and among them there is terraforming.
In the game called Animal Crossing New Horizons, an island evaluation refers to a short report that will be given by Isabelle. It consists of how the visitors feel about your island. A star ranking for your island will be included in each island evaluation. Talking about the ranking, it ranks from one as the lowest to five as the highest.
Apparently, you will be given by Isabelle some suggestions on how to improve your star rating. It is actually a part of your island evaluation. By following the things suggested by her, you will be able to make your island gaining a higher star ranking. Keep in mind that your star rating is determined by the amount of a few things on your island, including the bridges, the fencing, the flowers, the furniture that are placed outside, the inclines, the trees (cedar, fruit, normal), the villagers that are living on the island, and the weeds.
It should be noted that everything, with the exception of the weeds, are helpful to improve your island ranking by placing more of these on your isle. Besides, it is also important to keep your island nice and tiny. For this, you can get it by not leaving the likes of trash or turnips on the ground.
For everyone who wants to have your island evaluated in Animal Crossing New Horizons, it is a must for you to upgrade the Residential Services first from a tent to the town hall. After doing that, Isabelle will move to your island and you will be offered a range of new services in the town hall. Among them, there is island evaluation. Feel free to access it by selecting the Let’s talk island evals option. By choosing the option, you will be provided with both your star ranking and suggestions on how to improve your island.
Raising your star rating in Animal Crossing New Horizons has to be done as it gives a total of three benefits, which two of them can be earned when reaching a three star level. For the tree stars rating, you will be able to get an app known as the Island Designer. For those who have no idea about this app, it is really useful as you will be allowed to terraform your island, and a dog-guitarist named KL Slider will start to visit your island once every week.
Then, how to get a three star rating in Animal Crossing New Horizons? Before getting a three star rating in the game, the first thing that you have to do is to upgrade Residential Services first. Then, it is time for you to build the campsite. After that, you can achieve a three star rating. Here is everything that you can do to get a three star rating:
- Place 40 furniture outdoors
Please try your best to gather the furniture over time to get such a rating. In order to purchase the furniture, you can use the Nook stop in the Resident Services with Bells and Miles. You can do it to get the required numbers faster. Your ranking for both your scenery and natural beauty scores will be higher by crafting furniture that are made in a DIY Workbench.
- Upgrade stage 1 facilities
Having all of the facilities built is important to increase the ranking of the island. You will need to upgrade one facility like the Resident Services or Nook’s Cranny to get a three star rating.
- Build 2 bridges and 2 slopes or 2 stairs
It will be needed for you to develop your island with bridges or slopes and stairs. Go meet Tom Nook that is found at Resident Services to construct these.
- Add 8 villagers
To be able to add more villagers after the first three, it will be needed for you to speak with Tom Nook and choose Let’s talk about infrastructure. -> Sell land option.
- Plant 100 more trees
The shovel can be used to plant fruits in the ground to grow the new fruit trees. Feel free to consider bringing a tree from another island to increase your rating fast since this way requires three days to finish growing.
- Plant 200 more flowers
Just like trees, flowers also take three days to bloom. On the brighter news, there is no limit for how many you can buy at Nook’s Cranny. It means you are allowed to buy as many flowers starts as you want. Not only that, you are also able to purchase a lot of different kinds of flower seeds from Leif.
- Add 50 fencing
You can start everything by placing a total of 50 pieces of Simple Wooden Fence that are given by Tom Nook for free around your island. The amount is actually enough to get a three star rating. If you are interested in purchasing fences, the most recommended one is Corral Fence. This one is able to be purchased from Nook Stop in Resident Services for 1,000 Nook Miles.
- Plucking weeds and picking up garbage
Every time you see weeds, do not waste your time and just clean them up immediately. While the points are not much compared to the others, this method is still worth trying.
