Update 19 July 2020: Updated report of player able to unlock Blue Feather despite having only one marriage candidate at 6 hearts
The relationship with Bachelors and Bachelorettes has been slightly revamped, and will work differently. Both Bachelors and Bachelorettes will have two bars shown in the villager list, where music note will be your friendship points, while the heart one will be your love points.
About Heart Colours
As usual, love points evolves from Gray Heart > Purple Heart > Blue Heart > Green Heart > Yellow Heart > Orange Heart > Red Heart.
- Blue Heart allows player to trigger all friendship events (old events).
- Green Heart allows player to confess with Eternal Flower and become lovers.
- Orange Heart allows player to trigger lover events after a successful confession.
- Red Heart allows player to propose using a Blue Feather.
About Eternal Flower
Eternal flower can be bought from the Supermarket, and it will count as a confession when given to a Green Heart Bachelor / Bachelorette. New players will not be able to find the flower in Supermarket during the beginning of game, since it will only be sold after player finishes the Orange Venus event (オレンジヴィーナス, English name of the flower to be confirmed). There a two ways on starting the event.
First Method – Triggering the Event during Spring or Summer
The event will only trigger on Spring or Summer if the player has completed a Friendship Event #3 (Blue Heart) of ANY bachelor or bachelorette. It starts when player exits own house on a sunny day during Supermarket opening hours (Everyday except Tuesday and Sunday, 9:00 AM ~ 17:00 PM). Important: The event will not be triggered if player is carrying anything on hand.
The second part of event will trigger 3 days later on the same timing and conditions above. The player will be given an Eternal Flower, and the Supermarket will start selling them too.
Second Method – Triggering the Event during Autumn
The player will not need to complete any hearts event for it to trigger during this season. Instead, all the player need to do is to walk out of house during a sunny day in between of Supermarket opening hours (Refer timing above).
If the player has trigger the event during Spring or Summer, Jeff will come to give the player Orange Venus seed instead. Else, the player will be brought to experience the event first (the one occurred during Spring / Summer), and on the next day, be given the Orange Venus seed.
About Blue Feather
The two ways to trigger Blue Feather to be sold in the Supermarket are:
- First Method – Either Huang, Goddess, Kappa or Gourmet has 6 hearts and above (Hidden marriage candidates will not have their hearts visibly shown in villager list though).
- Second Method – All 12 marriage candidates are 6 hearts (Orange Heart) and above, with one of them has Lover Event #2 finished.
Update on Second Method: Players in comment reported that you’ll only need one marriage candidate to be at Orange heart to unlock Blue Feather. Perhaps the unlock condition was updated in the newer patch(?). Either way, this was the official guide book I initially refer from.
The requirement for marriage includes (Hidden marriage candidate will have different requirements that are not mentioned here):
- Player has renovated the house twice, and has Large Bed.
- Completion of at least one marriage candidate’s Lover Event #2.
- Blue Feather is sold in Supermarket.
After a successful proposal, the wedding day will occur 7 days later (Proposal Date + 7 days = Wedding Day). Since the wedding will be a whole day event, do not propose on the day where it will clash with any festival. For instance, proposal on Spring/Autumn 11 will cause you to unable attend Horse Racing Festival.
Note: It is entirely possible for same-sex marriage to have child later on, so don’t worry.
(Extra) About Casanova Achievement
First of all, the achievement is entirely optional. Player who looked through the bookcase in house would have noticed one of the achievements who require the player to be a Casanova. It literally asks the player to successfully confess to all 12 marriage candidates (hidden candidates not included), and marry one. The achievement will only be unlocked a day after the wedding, where the player will receive a mail about it.
Now for some simple calculation! The earliest time you can complete Cliff’s Blue Heart event and confess is Autumn 19. You will not have the time to propose to any candidate on the same day itself, so the earliest proposal will be on Autumn 20, making your wedding date Autumn 27 (clashing Rick’s birthday). So, by theory, the earliest date to unlock this achievement is First Year Autumn 28. However, that is not optimal in my opinion.
The earliest best date to proposal is actually Autumn 22 (since Autumn 21 is a festive day), have your wedding on Autumn 29, and receive the achievement on Autumn 30 instead. By doing so, you would not clash with any important event or birthdays.
There is no exact perks in having this achievement unlocked. The only good part is perhaps you get to experience as much of the game content (friendship and lover events) without starting an entirely new file. Similarly, there is no sign of jealousy or hatred after the marriage from other candidates, proving the achievement will not provide any negative impact to the game itself. So gentlemen (and ladies), go forth and conquer them all!
