Brooding

Please never, ever, ever remove the references to Elliott brooding in his schedule. It was amazingly nice for someone to type up the schedule, and it just feels so right. Mattados (talk) 09:40, 29 February 2016 (EST)

Re-added brooding schedule. Katzeus removed it without discussion or a reason appended. FronkerZ (talk) 05:07, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Removed the flavor. This is the official wiki. People come here for quick information, not your fan fiction. Zesty Crab Legs (talk) 19:03, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Re-added the brooding. There's nothing wrong with a little flavor text and it's not hindering anyone's ability to pick out the information. You can still easily and clearly see where Elliott will be at what time. Blackandwhite2 (talk) 21:45, 2 March 2016 (EST)
I don't think you understand what a wiki is. There are more appropriate places for that kind of thing elsewhere. Zesty Crab Legs (talk) 18:10, 3 March 2016 (EST)
There's no reason to be so hostile about it. Blackandwhite2 (talk) 12:54, 4 March 2016 (EST)
Do you know what a wiki is? Being impartial and providing information does not require cold monotone tone. Especially given that the community seems to be divided on the issue, at least try to discuss first before jumping to conclusions. FronkerZ (talk) 00:20, 6 March 2016 (EST)
The flavor added does not reflect the in-game representation of the character. It doesn't belong here. I'm sorry you find that upsetting. Zesty Crab Legs (talk) 04:23, 6 March 2016 (EST)
Brooding is defined as: "showing deep unhappiness of thought". Elliott is enduring writer's block while taking breaks from trying to perfect his novel, staring out to sea and at the river dramatically. It fits, it's funny, it's informative, it adds flavor to the article, and it's liked by most people in the discussion. You have to back up your claim of it being "fan fiction" or how it's "not appropriate" for the wiki. FronkerZ (talk) 05:11, 6 March 2016 (EST)
To add to this, I can re-write the brooding section to be more condensed and less wordy than the original, if readability is an issue FronkerZ (talk) 05:17, 6 March 2016 (EST)
No, thanks. Zesty Crab Legs (talk) 00:56, 8 March 2016 (EST)

Likes/Dislikes

I discovered that category -79 (All Fruit) is listed in NPCGiftTastes.yaml under both Elliot's likes AND his dislikes. Since the game code processes likes before dislikes (and exits processing if it finds a match), Elliot ends up liking all fruits. (Except, of course, the two that are listed by item # -- namely pomegranate and salmonberry.) I wonder if CA meant for him to dislike all fruit or not? Weird.Margotbean (talk) 08:43, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

The schedule is messed up.

I am looking right now at it, and it says he gets a checkup every tuesday from the doctor? That doesn't sound right. ALso, I am standing west of Leahs cottage and looking south at him on Tuesday, 16 Summer year 2, which is what is listed in the Wednesday schedule.

Ten Heart Event Bug

I had it happen where I had gotten Elliot to ten hearts and later (not sure if it was the same day, but if it was the next day I had not got the letter) I warped to the beach using a totem (note also that it was snowing) and Elliott's ten heart event triggered. The next day I received the letter to head to the beach on the next sunny morning. The next morning it was snowing so I didn't go to the beach and it snowed for four days straight. That next sunny day I did go in the morning and no event triggered. XaqNautilus (talk) 05:41, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Then I entered his house and triggered his his six heart event. XD XaqNautilus (talk) 05:53, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Leah Hearts in Elliotts Schedule?

Many of the details in Elliotts schedule mention if the player has heart levels with LEAH. Should it not read Elliot? Also, can someone please fix the schedule. It is incorrect. Could not find Elliott in any mentioned places for Friday in Fall. Jen7NZ (talk) 15:37, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello Jen -- Elliott's schedule depends on how many friendship hearts you have with Leah, not with Elliott himself. As you become better friends with Leah, Elliott stops going to the saloon to hang out with her.
The schedules are read from the top down. So, to find him, you first have to check if it's raining, then check how many hearts you have with Leah. margotbean (talk) 16:41, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
I just come here to confirm that his schedulle is not accurate. In my game:
  • It's fall;
  • It's not rainning;
  • It's friday 5th (his birthday);
  • I have no hearth of friendship with Leah;
  • It's 10PM;
And he didn't came to the saloon, he's at home. A bit frustrating, because I can't enter his home to gift him. - Sapador (talk) 20:36, 9 August 2018 (BST)
Missed this earlier. See my note at "Schedule (again)". Butterbur (talk) 16:34, 18 August 2018 (BST)

Elliott's Schedule

A while ago I updated his schedules according to the code posted above, then today I witnessed him following his Spring regular schedule on a Winter Sunday when I had 8 friendship hearts with Leah. I officially give up. margotbean (talk) 22:44, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Schedule (again)

I see that Elliott's schedule is often a pain, but heres something I've just noticed, for whomever edits the schedule next. On Sunday, Winter 21, Year 1, he just walked to stand and brood on the bridge at 3pm. Not sure if this is a Sunday thing or something else, but currently the wiki says his Sunday and Friday schedules match (I have less than 6 hearts with Leah). He was in his house till 3pm then left to stand on the bridge Undead.boi (talk) 23:06, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

I think there's a problem with this whole "less than 6 hearts with Leah" thing. On his birthday (Friday, 5 Fall), he didn't show up at the saloon at all. Whatever the code leads one to believe, we just don't see the behavior in the actual game. It's been that way throughout version 1.2, and it's still there in 1.3. I'm pretty much with Margotbean (section above): I give up. I've seen too many anomalies with other characters as well, including an especially extravagant one if Leah's clinic visit falls on a rainy day. But I am going to remove the misleading birthday info, as that can be especially annoying. Butterbur (talk) 16:03, 18 August 2018 (BST)
For some reason I started a new save in v1.2, and am stalking Elliott to determine his schedule once and for all. I'm using v1.2 because v1.3 is still buggy as hell, pardon my language.
I'm seeing that hearts with Leah do not matter at all. I don't know why. Alex's schedule file reads the same way, and he does visit Haley's house until you have 6 hearts of friendship with her.
So far I've completed Spring. (Unfortunately, I put "summer" in the comment to the edit, and that can't be changed now.) I plan on continuing the year, so his schedule is finally correct. margotbean (talk) 00:38, 2 September 2018 (BST)
Elliott's schedule is complete and accurate now. margotbean (talk) 16:54, 3 September 2018 (BST)
