Electoral Update: The Science of Democracy

Posted by Professor Flake on April 17, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Ah, Hello, my dear friends! I bet you're wondering why I'm here on such an odd week. I'm Professor Flake of the Loony Labs, as well as the founder of my Precipitation Foundation. We don't have a building yet, and by we it's actually just me - but it's in the works.



Ever since the big snow of last Christmas, I've been focused on calculating the fluctuations in the ambient temperatures of Toontown in hopes of discovering how to harness such an ability. My main base of operations has been, of course, The Brrrgh. Development of it has frozen, however, quite literally. The temperature sensor technology just isn't perfected quite yet.

This week has the labs buzzing with a new focus, however. The animating atrocities in Toontown Central have everyone excited -- despite advances in my temperate temperature tests. No matter, however, as the Labs are giving us the day off on Saturday for the election. Everyone except for the new S.I.L.L.I. (Scientists Interested in Laugh Levels Increasing) Team, that is.

In preparation for the increased laughter levels on Saturday, we've released a new update to our Toon T.A.G.S. (Totally Awesome Graphic Simulator) to improve performance and ease of use. We encourage them to be tested in large groups of toons, as the performance should be significantly increased.

Now, I must be getting back to my work. If you're ever looking for a few tasks, I'm in need of a Junior Research Scientist for hire. You know where to find me!

Maintenance:
• Optimize a couple of election prop models
• Significantly improve game performance.
Throughout the next few weeks, we will have a few updates focusing on improving gameplay on lower-end computers. You should notice a big difference today!

Alpha Testers: We'd appreciate it if you can try to organize large groups of toons to test out client performance. Let us know how things go!

Bugfixes:
• Fix an issue where toons could bypass the election rope.

Features:
• Loony Lab's Toon T.A.G.S. received an update!

• Improve nametag clicking in the margins
• Properly manage nametag click region
• Add click-frame management
• Various performance and ease-of-use improvements

I remember Professor Flake from when I started training for my Lawbot Suit! On the day that Toontown closed...

Sounds Amazing! Can't wait for this game to be released! Thanks for doing your best to bring back such a fun game. I can't imagine how much work you have put into this, and on behalf of Toontown fans and myself, we greatly appreciate the effort all of you have put into this remake purely for the enjoyment of others. Best of Luck!

Waiting to play golf. I was pretty good in the old TT at golf. I hope there is a spot for me in TTR and any golf events!
