Is it like past games where it counts decorations per square? Looking online there are so many different ACNH 5 star island guides telling you how many trees, flowers, fencing, DIY furniture, nook miles furniture, and infrastructure to place and they were all different. Next, we are going to break down the best way to achieve 5-star island in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

 

The Internal Points System In Animal Crossing New Horizons

There are no set amount of any Animal Crossing New Horizons items that you need in order for you to increase your rating. There are really only general estimates on the number of things that you could put out to crease your rating, but that's based on a ton of different factors. You see the island rating system is actually based on an internal point system that is split into two separate categories: scenery and development. In order to increase your island rating, you need to have a specific amount of points in both of those categories. Scenery points come from things like trees, flowers, shrubbery, and then DIY furniture that you put out on your island. While development points come from furniture that you can purchase either through nook's cranny or through the nook shopping services center, either with ACNH nook miles or with ACNH bells and they also come from things like bridges, inclines, the shops, and the museum itself. Each of these things is assigned a different point value.

 

Requirements To Get 5 Star In Animal Crossing New Horizons

The 1-star rating is the base rating that means you have six or fewer villagers including yourself on your island, you have less than 80 points in development and less than 200 points in the scenery. For a 2 star rating, you need to have at least seven other villagers not including yourself, you also need to have 80 to 150 points for development and 200 to 269 points in the scenery. A 3-star rating which is actually also where you unlock the kk slide concert as well as terraforming is usually where you're going to want to end up at least. To get a 3-star rating you need to have anywhere between 78 other villagers 160 to 399 points in development and 270 to 349 points in the scenery. For 4 star you need to have at least 9 of the villagers, 400 to 664 points and development, and 350 to 449 points in the scenery. Finally, for a 5-star rating, you need at least 9 other villagers, 665 plus points at development, and 450 plus points in the scenery. This is where your island will also start growing the rare lilies of the valley flower and also where you'll unlock the DIY recipe for the golden watering can. so what does

 

How Do You Get Points In Animal Crossing New Horizons

1. For scenery which in this case would be trees and flowers. For trees and this includes any type of tree so bamboo trees, coconut trees, cedar trees, and fruit trees. All trees are worth 1 point when they are fully grown. They are worth absolutely no points when they're chopped down or while they're in the middle of growing. Flowers interestingly enough have three separate point values during all stages of their life. Flower sprouts worth 0.5 points. Flower buds or stems 0.7 points. Finally, full-grown flowers are worth 1 point. Trees actually max out at 190 points. So if you're going for a jungle theme or a forest-themed island just keep in mind that after 190 trees, no tree passed that point is going to give you any scenery points.

 

2. Buildings and structures like bridges and inclines are the easiest part. Each building is worth 15 points. The museum is 15, Abel sisters is 15 and your nook's cranny is actually only worth 15 points when it's upgraded. Because the shops and the museum are like the natural progression of the game. You can essentially say that you always start off with a base of 45 development points. Bridges and inclines are actually all worth 15 as well, so really you can probably fill out your development points really easily. Considering the fact that each building in each bridge and incline that you build is a static 15 points and you can actually load up your island easily with bridges and inclines. It should be noted that you can only have H inclines on your island total which really only gives you about 120 points.

 

3. For the tricky part, how do you score furniture to calculate furniture? DIY furniture gives you scenery points while purchasing furniture gives you development points. Scenery points and development points for furniture are scored on the exact same system. Furniture is graded on an 8 by 8 tile that is known as a block. The difference between grading furniture and grading everything else is that furniture in this block is actually graded as units rather than being graded individually. Now there are three types of furniture that do get individual points and that's based on their size and 3x1, 3x2 and 3x3 sizes of furniture get 1 point each. If you're unsure how big a piece of furniture is you can actually go to your DIY recipe book and write underneath the name of it, it tells you what sizes. It's important to note that furniture of these need to be unique in order for them to count for points.
