Animal Crossing: New Horizons received its new 1.3.0 update this week, and as is tradition, some fans have taken a closer look at the code to see what else can be gleamed aside from what Nintendo officially announced. Reliable dataminer Ninji has passed along quite a bit of interesting information from the patch.

One of the more interesting points concerns a change in how NPCs spawn. Ninji highlights that Leif, Saharah and Kicks are no longer guaranteed every week, so players should now see a far more even spread of visitors. Gullivarrr (pirate Gulliver) can also appear if you’ve bought a wetsuit. With version 1.2.0, if players met all requirements met, they had three guaranteed NPCs and two free weekday slots, with five NPCs vying for those slots. Now with version 1.3.0, there are five weekday slots, with nine NPCs vying for them, which should prevent the situation where unlucky players miss out on one NPC for weeks on end.
