Read this Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch (ACNH) guide on how to make waterfalls! Learn how to use the island designer to build multi-level waterfalls, and a waterfall island!
Key Points When Making Waterfalls
How To Make Cliffs
|1||Start up the Island Designer|
|2||Get the Cliff Construction Permit and make 2x3 cliff (or bigger)|
|3||Climb to the top of the cliff with a Ladder|
|4||Get a Waterscaping Permit and build a cliff|
Need To Unlock The Island Designer
In order to creater waterfalls, you'll need to use the Island Designer tool. In addition to this, you'll need to have the Cliff-Construction and Waterscaping permits as well. These licenses can be obtained by spending Miles!Check Out How To Unlock The Island Designer Here!
2x3 Is The Minimum Size
Waterfalls cannot be placed on edges or corners! This means that you'll need at minimum a 2x3 sized cliff in order to make them.
Flatten The Land In Your Workspace
You won't be able to build cliffs on tiles which are occupied by trees, weeds, or furniture. Decide in advance where you'll be building your cliff & flatten out the entire area. Removing trees by eating a fruit and uprooting them yourself is more efficient than using the Island Designer in this case!Check Out More Info On Different Fruits Here!
How To Create Unique Waterfalls
|1||Build the waterfall on the first level (on a grid greater than 5x4)|
|2||Climb up to the new cliff with a Ladder|
|3||Build the waterfall on the second (minimum 2x3)|
|4||Make sure the waterfalls on the two levels line up vertically!|
You can't stack cliffs directly on top of each other. This means you'll have to approach your construction as if it were a pyramid, with the base being larger than the subsequent upper levels. Also note that 2 stories is the maximum - you cannot create 3 story cliffs.
|1||Make a cliff with the same width as your desired island|
|2||Build waterfalls to the sides of this cliff|
|3||Surround the island with cliffs at least one tile away|
|4||Build waterfalls on the cliffs on the outer perimeter|
The important thing here is to create the central island first! This will let you get a sense of how large of a space you'll need. If you start with the outside layer first, it can be hard to judge proportions. Also, if you make the island part second, you might need to use the emergency rescue service to get out!
