Go to Mrs. Weeder and offer help. She'll say she got her plants infested with parasites. Go to dr. Feelgood and offer help twice. (if you're this far, you'll already have what she asks for) she asked for two bugs and two fish altogether. Give them to her and give ms. Weeder her item that Dr. F just made. She give you two parts to a shovel go to the crafting table rock thing and there will be a shovel template.
If you haven't noticed, the island's shape is that of a crab. It has its left claw open and the right claw closed.
When you get the mixture from Dr. Feelgood for Ms. Weeder she give you a handle for a shovel and a shovel head. Then go to where you can craft things and click one of the question marks then find the one that requires the things i just said, then press make. Then you have a spade.
You have to go to the ocean and keep diving until you get to the red. Then press X and go to your home and it might go to day to night to day or day to nothing or day to night.
Just like bugs, rare fish can be found by catching all the original fish. Then a rare fish will swim by which you should catch! This fish will be worth a lot because it will give you higher stats when you eat it or it will be trade-able or it is part of a quest.
When you are trying to trade someone a certain fish you look for what time of day it comes out. So if you need a black salmon look on the right side of your top screen where your clock is. Black Salmons come out when the hand is where three normally is. So if you are on a mission to find certain fish click on the person you doing it for in the survival guide and click on the fish you are trying to find,under the picture is a sun find the side thats dark and match it with one of your clock symbols on your clock then go fishing at that time.
When you hunt for bugs if you kill all of the regular bugs a rare bug will crawl through. So if you are trying to trade with the doctor on top of the cliff, try to kill all the regular bugs to unlock new types of bugs. So once you get all the bugs needed you can trade.
To navigate instantly throughout the island, press X then tap on your desired place!
If you need a certain type of fish, you can go to different parts of the island. Different types of fish come at day and night.
To save some time and energy for the sim, open the survival book in the left handed corner. Go to the compass and pick any place to go to. Using the map helps the sim save time and energy when it has to go to the bathroom or needs sleep.
After you get your spade from the plant lady, by giving her the plant nutrients, and make the sape, new fish will start to appear, such as the sardine and the pufferfish.
