Animal Crossing: New Horizons offers players more ways to decorate, rearrange, and generally customize their island than the franchise has ever had before. Some players are using this newfound freedom to reinvent ordinary household items as parts of an exotic setting. Now a Animal Crossing: New Horizons The player showed off a beautiful coral reef area that he built to make part of his island look underwater.

Although Animal Crossing: New Horizons takes place entirely on a series of islands, the game does not allow players to do much underwater. Players can use scuba gear to swim around the nearby sea and dive under the waves to collect sea creatures. However, construction projects are generally limited to the shores of the island.

Redditor AuriVega shared a short 21-second video that highlights one of their creations, which they call a coral reef. The video consists of a slow pan to the right, showing a long stretch of island that has been decorated and reshaped to look like it’s underwater. It is not the first time Animal Crossing: New Horizons players have created some incredible structures on their islands, but this is perhaps one of the most creative and visually impressive.

The AuriVega Reef features a wide variety of seashells, marine life statues, and water-patterned floor tiles. However, the most notable pieces are a series of multicolored frozen tree items. The Frozen Tree is a DIY item that looks like a small leafless tree completely buried in semi-transparent ice. The DIY recipe can be obtained from Snowpeople and requires eight snowflakes and one large snowflake to craft. AuriVega chose to manufacture frozen trees in a variety of vibrant colors, including pink and orange, to mimic the rigid structures of coral. The result is a series of brilliant arrows reaching into the sky and adding spice to the bluish underwater landscape created by AuriVega.

The rest of the exhibit features sculptures of ocean creatures such as sunfish, crabs, great white sharks, and what appears to be a whale shark at the end. It does not appear to feature any of the live fish found in Animal Crossing: New Horizon, but this constructed reef still gives the impression of being filled with life. AuriVega used lanterns to give the display a mottled look and a mix of dips and hills to create the feeling of uneven growth of a real coral reef. Some of the frozen trees are positioned in small holes or on top of hills to add to that impression, showing just how smart this part of Redditor Island is.
