3D Island Planner for Animal Crossing New Horizons

Plan and Design in 3D

A quick and worthwhile update for those looking for a little more when planning their island with other map planners like Happy Island Designer and Google Sheets Planner.


A reddit user by the name of u/coco-coco has, in his spare time, created this amazing Island Planner in Unity! Utilizing the software’s 3D capabilities we can now waterscape into the ground for those peace ponds and landscape into the sky creating tiers of land just like we can in-game!

I present to you: Island Planner by Bubble Wand Games

**click the “Run Planner“ button at the top


I will be sure to have a more comprehensive guide, like I’ve done for Happy Island Designer in the past, but for now the excitement to share this with you was too much. So here’s the update and a list of controls for when using the planner!


u/coco-coco has let us know that the planner is still in it’s very early form so if you do plan on using it, remember that there may be some bugs and a few weird things happening until those bugs can get fixed.


**Also, the Island Planner is not built for Mobile and is much better to use on a laptop or desktop computer.

  1. Can this go onto the the game once its created or is it more of a template to look at while terraforming? I hate doing it on the game and would rather look on a computer to do it. 😦


    1. Hey Jenna, unfortunately it is more of a template/idea playground before actually completing the design in game. I don’t believe Nintendo would allow such a third party platform to be able to connect directly to the game like that, but it is a fantastic idea! Maybe one day 🤞


  2. I love that this exists! The amount of time I’ll save – intead of terraforming hoping I’ll eventually look good. (The link doesn’t seem to lead to the website though :/ )
