This game is easily the best in the series, and it seems like making money is way easier but I'm not really sure as I always cheated before. I gonna post some cool stuff for future reference:

Multiple Towns on the same Digital Download

Ok, so I'm playing New Leaf on the same 3ds as my girlfriend. We each want a town, and I had assumed a digital download + multiple sd cards would allow for this. It appears that an error is thrown up if you swap out SD cards, though, disallowing you to load any save other than the most recent save file.

So. I started poking around the contents of the SD card, and I was able to locate the 2 folders AC creates. They are numbered, rather than human readable names, so I had to go by creation date on the folders to deduce the correct ones.

If you open your SD card on your Mac/PC, you'll notice 2 folders. Ignore private & open the numbered directory. After clicking through another numbered sub-folder, you'll see 3 sub-directories.

dbs
extdata
title

There will be 1 folder you'll need from within extdata & title. Looking inside extdata, click through the solitary numbered directory & you'll see groups of folders that each begin with a series of 0s. The folder I needed was called '00000863'. Not sure if this will be the same for everyone, but go by creation date, to be sure (If your first save was early this morning, the creation date of the folder will match).

Then, move back out to the "title" folder, navigate two levels further & locate the similarly named folder that you found in extdata (here, mine is called '00086300').

Copy both above directories to your machine and insert your 2nd sd card. Pull the same data from that card & you've got backups of both of your towns on your computer. To switch to an older save or different town, just replace the 2 folders on your active sd card (the one you'll be inserting into your 3DS) with the backup folders from your computer. Be sure to back up your latest files before overwriting the live card to avoid losing any data.

If your in a similar situation as me, or if you just want to have multiple towns on one 3DS, this method will work without the need of purchasing a second copy of the game & you only need 1 SD card.

The best way to make money I found is that once you unlock the island, fill your take home box with beetles (not the little green ones). You can easily make 100k+ and if you are willing to wait a long time for the really good ones then you can make like 400-500k

I made a boatload off fishing on the island (the bigger fish and sharks), getting 100k off a little more than a dozen of those. Which beetles are the best?

how did ya get rich? I havent played all day cause E3
doing what you said - went to the island and focused on the beetles except the little green ones and then I just kept an eye out for sharks and fished those up - each of those around 10,000-15,000 each. Around 7pm seems to be a good time to find sharks and a lot of beetles.

I made like 400k+ in one trip which took me maybe 30 minutes or so. Only shitty part is when you get back trying to sell everything since you have to go back and forth but this depends on how far your dock is from your shop. I wish your inventory could be increased.

I remember in an older AC game I used to use the letter slots as temporary inventory space, storing items as gifts on letters. That still possible in this one?

It is! But it's really convenient because they have like this "locker" system. Where ever you store things, it can be accessed throughout your town. At the train station, your home with a dresser, on the island, etc

Ok, I found the best way to make money is go to the island right after 7PM (or really anytime between 7pm-5am) and cut down all the trees in the middle of the island and the 4 palm trees on the south end of the island since they are harder to sneak up on. Trample all the flowers as this spawns butterflies that you do not want. You can then return the axe to the gyroid, and just keep the fishing rod and net.

But with just the palm trees, you should get all the good beetles now. Make sure the run off any other bugs you find since the game has a limit on how many bugs it spawns. Also if you see a shark fish those up since they way more than any of the bugs. Overall this makes it a lot easier to make money off the island since you don't have to worry about the crappy bugs that spawn on the trees in the middle.

I was able to get 3 of the golden stags within 5 minutes, and a lot of other stuff. The biggest pain is still taking all of these bugs to the shop, but I made around 450-500k doing this once last night.

BTW the trees don't grow back, so you'll have to replant the ones in the middle if you ever want to catch the bugs for the museum.

ALSO, for those who want more fruits, you can go on tours like the fishing and bug catching ones and press DOWN on the dpad to unequip your item which you can then shake the trees to get fruit. The fruit for each tour is random, however it doesn't seem to spawn any normal fruit (apples, pears, etc). Just tropical fruit. I wish there were more ways to get fruit in this game, but so far this is it, besides going to random people's cities or maybe getting lucky on the online islands.
