When you open the gate in your town to allow your friends to visit, certain game areas are temporarily disabled. What changes take place?
While the gate is open:
- The Happy Home Showcase is blocked off
- The Dream Suite is disabled
- Access to the 'Mayor chair' in Town Hall is blocked
- Blathers won't accept donations or assess fossils
- Saharah and similar NPCs seem to leave or are otherwise unavailable (e.g. Gulliver won't wake up) - note this does not apply to Katrina or probably Redd, who have tents.
- Bees, spiders and scorpions will not appear
- Favours for villagers, such as deliveries, cannot be performed
