Animal Crossing: New Horizons Airports May Influence Item Designs

One fan theory on Reddit suggests that the airport’s color in Animal Crossing: New Horizons influences the design of a lot of other island items.

One fan of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has apparently discovered that the in-game item designs may be tied to what kind of airport players have on their island. Creating unique homes and islands is one of the most popular activities in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and there are tons of guides online to help players make the most of the tools available in order to create things like bridges over water and hidden rooms behind bookshelves.

Players have fully embraced the creative aspects of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, so much so that the game saw one of Nintendo's biggest launches ever and subsequently helped cause the company to run out of Nintendo Switch console stock. It seems as if everyone is currently playing Animal Crossing, and even Star Wars writer Gary Whitta has his own New Horizons talk show. However, players have begun to notice that some of the items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons look slightly different from island to island, and one person on Reddit thinks they have the solution.

According to one player on Reddit who goes by the forum handle u/PraiseHolo (thanks, GameSpot) the color of furniture and item designs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons appears to be tied to what kind of airport players have on their island. These differences in items can be seen in the chart below, which reveals that although specific airport colors do seem to influence certain designs, the changes aren't simple palette swaps. For instance, some of the lighthouses may appear striped or two-toned, while others might end up being one solid color. Check out the chart here:

While it's unclear if this theory is correct or not in regards to Animal Crossing: New Horizons' programming, it would explain why certain players receive different items than others, and the game's community seems to be generally accepting it as truth. In the comments underneath the thread, many players have begun posting which airport they have and how they feel about seeing all of the other design options, with many fans seemingly agreeing that the green, blue, and orange-colored airports have the best designs.

One of the best things about Animal Crossing: New Horizons is how positive and generally well-meaning the game's community is, and even in the comments for the chart above players were inviting each other over to their own islands in order to give away their own unwanted designs to Animal Crossing players who would enjoy having them. There's not much a player can do to change the color of their own airport in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, so the best option they have is working together. Thankfully, making players work together and feel a sense of pride and community is what Animal Crossing: New Horizons is all about.
