Building an Incline

After you’ve built the campsite, you might want to consider building an incline! An incline will allow your villagers to reach higher areas of the island, and you won’t have to use your ladder! To build an incline, speak to Nook and choose the option, About bridges/inclines. Then choose to talk to him about inclines instead of bridges.

The inclines are expensive, but the cheapest option is 98,000. And, once you’ve placed the incline, you don’t have to pay for it straight away! You can add a little money towards it each day, or you can pay it all in one go. It won’t be built until you’ve paid off all the construction fees though.

The inclines can be quite expensive, but you don’t have to pay the fees all at once.

Once you’ve chosen an incline style (you probably want to start with the natural ramp), Nook will give you an incline marker kit. You’ll have to play around with the location of the ramp, as it has a few requirements that need to be met, like even cliff face and not too close to lakes and houses, etc.

An incline will mean your villagers can wander up to higher levels of your island.

When you’ve picked a spot, LLoid will manage the accepting of donations. Your villagers will donate a little money everyday towards the construction, but it is really not a lot. You might as well just pay as much as you can towards the incline.

Paying off the construction fees means the incline will be built by tomorrow!
