Dataminer have revealed new details about the system behind the extracts from residents in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Accordingly, there is a new percentage chance every day of the probability that a resident will leave your island. The secret level of friendship also plays a crucial role.
As you progress through Animal Crossing: New Horizons, residents will gradually move to the island. However, after a while it can happen that a friend will move away again. Several months after the release, Dataminer has now deciphered the system how and why the inhabitants of your island disappear. On Twitter has users "Ninji" reveal some details.
First of all, at least six residents must live on your island – there is no move out beforehand. The chance is then determined with a percentage chance with each new day. The formula "(v * 5) + c" is used. The variable "v" stands for the number of residents – the variable "c" is the time in days since a resident was last asked to move or stay.
Among other things, the focus is on the friendship level. This begins at 25 and can reach a value of up to 255. Moving out is possible from level 27. The higher the value, the less likely your roommate will leave the island. There are also some periods when moves are excluded.
For example, if a resident's birthday took place within the past seven days, it is not possible to move out. The same applies if the house is currently being moved, the occupant is the last to move in or if you were delayed in moving to move. After moving out, your island is spared 15 days before another move. According to the Dataminer, these rules apply to the current version of the game. Of course, future changes are always possible.
