Summer Fun, Fights, and Fireworks!

Posted by Sir Max on July 4, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Ah, summer. It's finally here! I mean, it's been here for a while for most of us. Management says we need to wait until July to do any festivities, though, because of the Easterners. You know, those people with the weird accents on the other side of the globe. Those guys. They may make us wait for our festivities, but that doesn't stop us from embracing 'MURICA on them by starting our event on the most patriotic holiday of all!



Darkness no more, however, because it's time for a big ol' Toontown Summer Celebration! For the next three days of this long weekend, we'll be Celebrating Summer around the clock with events here in Toontown. Flippy made sure to get some top-of-the-line fireworks for an entirely new show like never before, so hang onto your pants unless you want to end up like McQuack! (Sorry Smokey Joe, but the Used Firecrackers just don't cut it.)

I am required to warn you, though, that Toon HQ has been detecting some strange Cog activity in the skies. Seems like the business baddies aren't too happy with us putting a bunch of explosions up in their flying zone. Really, I don't know how we didn't think of it sooner. (I'm not saying I should be on Toon Council or anything, but I should definitely be on Toon Council or anything.)

Anyway, back to business: Looks like these bots are organizing Mega-Invasions of massive proportions to take back the skies for their own. It's the Legal Eagles, no less! You'd think that those blasted birds would be a bit more patriotic. Now that I think about it, though, we are missing quite a few necessary permits to launch Fireworks...

Get yourselves hyped up for Day 2 of the celebration folks, because I've heard that there is a Super Saturday underway targeted towards you PlayTime people! I'm off to round up the 'Muricans to give those Legal Eagles a taste of freedom, sky-neutrality, and constitutional democracy.

July 5, 2014 [ttr-beta-v1.3.1]

Maintenance:
• Improve racing code to prevent exploits
Experimental: Turn on anti-aliasing by default
• Reduce logging of Cog pathfinding
• Implement Official Invasion API. In the future, the API will only show detailed stats for toon-summoned invasions. We never know when those baddies will attack! Due to the limited amount of invasions, it currently shows random invasions as well.

Bugfixes:
• Prevent a crash when using Shift+F1 in a Cog HQ Interior area
• Fix a bug where all DA Office elevators would lead to Office A
• Prevent a rare crash when loading Shtickerbook settings
• Fix an OSX crash that would commonly occur during boss battles

Tweaks:
• Big Magnets are now blue to match their icon
• Tweak random invasion probabilities and length based on community feedback

Features:
• Improve Firework shows with the "new" Firework system. Toontown Online originally changed the fireworks to a new type at some point in its lifetime. The old system was previously used on Toontown Rewritten due to an engine incompatibility, which has since been fixed. Enjoy the better looking Fireworks!
• The Legal Eagles aren't too happy with throwing explosions into their airspace. Legal Eagle Mega-Invasions have begun!

Wow, this is incredible! I can't wait to see what's going to happen tomorrow!

Pedrito said on July 4, 2014 at 2:07 PM
Cream pie should be "cream" color to match with his icon :p

Carl The Mouse said on July 4, 2014 at 2:09 PM

Blue Dog said on July 4, 2014 at 2:17 PM

YES! PLAYTIME!

Kermit said on July 4, 2014 at 2:29 PM
The Legal Eagles may have taken over, but, they are no match for the powerful Miss Piggy.

Christopher said on July 4, 2014 at 2:32 PM
Happy 4th of July everyone! :)

Purple Kit said on July 4, 2014 at 2:33 PM

Big Ben said on July 4, 2014 at 2:34 PM
Can't wait for this! I'm even more hyped about Super Saturday! What does it mean? More beta keys?! I hope so! Lets go take down some Legal Eagles.. Murica!

Royko said on July 4, 2014 at 2:36 PM
Don't worry Toons! We'll take down those Legal Eagles!

Super Egg said on July 4, 2014 at 2:37 PM
I has fireworks.

Jared said on July 4, 2014 at 2:39 PM
Have no fear guys! Jared the black cat will defeat the Legal Eagles!

Ahahahah! said on July 4, 2014 at 2:40 PM
Cant wait to celebrate MURICA though fireworks, keep up the great job TTR. :3

Brady said on July 4, 2014 at 2:42 PM
Sweeeet! Happy 4th of July everyone!

Crazy said on July 4, 2014 at 2:50 PM
Yay! Happy independence day! Wow. That's A LOT of maintenance. "There is a Super Saturday underway targeted towards you PlayTime people." That's great for me then! Even though the big magnets matching their icons is only a small thing, I am REALLY excited to see them in-game. I think that other gags should match their icons, like the fruit pie and whole cream pie, for example.

Crazy dog said on July 4, 2014 at 2:55 PM
Awesome!But for some reason the launcher won't let me in even if it's my playtime and i hope you guys fix it.:)

Firebolt said on July 4, 2014 at 2:58 PM

miss coconut purpleswirl said on July 4, 2014 at 4:48 PM
Oh! I LOVE the fireworks on toontown! that was one of my favorite things about the game! I'm so glad that the TTR team is continuing the "little things" in Toontown! :) Happy 4th of July! You guys make my day!

Mystical Magic said on July 4, 2014 at 5:06 PM
Once again you guys have outdone yourselves. A new name for the Devs should be Dream Keepers. You keep our dreams alive. Toontastic job. Can't hardly wait for the full release.

NuttyQuack said on July 4, 2014 at 6:19 PM
"Get yourselves hyped up for Day 2 of the celebration folks, because I've heard that there is a Super Saturday underway targeted towards you PlayTime people!" This alone, I, just, I can't wait, I really want to know what it is, I can't keep my computer on long enough to get through the PlayLine so I really hope there's more space or less time or temporarily open to all or something, anything along those lines will make me explode with happiness. (On second thought, I think exploding might hurt a little bit, I think I'll just jump around a lot instead.)

Sburb said on July 4, 2014 at 6:48 PM
Happy Indepenence Day!

Bright Night Light said on July 4, 2014 at 8:21 PM
Wow. Exciting!! I've always hated those Legal Eagles! SO BRING EM TO JUSTICE! Teach those Birds a taste of their own medicine!! ( Yes and I had to look up how to spell Medicine XD ) Those Eagles need to learn how to have fun. I bet it isn't even in their dictionary!! ( I also had to look up how to spell Dictionary XD!! ) Well HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY GUYS!!!! P.S : I was really supposed to be born on the Fourth Of July. Cool, huh?? But instead I'm born on FRIDAY THE 13 FREAKY FRIDAY!!

I played yesterday for the first time and let me tell you it was TOONTASTIC!!!! Thank you so much for bringing back Toontown to us all. You guys are SO great!!!!

Little Ladybug said on July 5, 2014 at 9:52 AM
Wow, I'm guessing it won't be long until they finally have the game out for everyone! :D thank you TTR staff for the work you have put in! It really pays off. Happy 4th everyone! :)

squishface said on July 5, 2014 at 12:11 PM
First off, to Joey and team TTRW; YOU ROCK!!! I was a beta tester for the original Toontown and played daily all 10 years. I am seriously stoked to see this game infused with new life. I have yet to find a open *scheduled play time* and I have been waiting in the playline for 24 hours, but out of the blue my time reset back to over 60 hours. *drat* No problemo though, as I will wait my turn to add my expert gaming skills sprinkled with heavy sarcasm and goofy jokes. (Goofy pun intended) Per the norm, I will be here to help other toons who need guidance in the game, or a helping hand in a cog battle and of course, I am here to help Team TTRW anyway I can. If you need any write ups or my past experience with the original Beta testing or my 10 years of game play, by all means hit me up.

Saiko said on July 5, 2014 at 2:09 PM
Hope everyone's having a toontastic time on this "Super Saturday", and had an amazing Fourth! Those Legal Eagles don't stand a chance!

Spotty Jumbleton said on July 6, 2014 at 2:34 AM
Hey guys! I realise that you guys will celebrate 4th July much more than me being British but I haven't seen anyone comment on the BLUE BIG MAGNETS. I was very confused and a little annoyed on TTO that the big magnet were only slightly larger red magnets unlike the gag picture. I think it's great that we'll finally have an obvious way to differentiate between big and small magnets. Wow, I didn't anticipate being able to talk for so long about magnets. I guess that's my Physics knowledge coming out, and my eagerness to be back playing the game I love properly, without excessive lag.

Shy Guy said on July 6, 2014 at 7:41 AM
Omg! An invasion API? I'm definitely writing an invasion tracker when the game officially launches! :D

longsgaprd said on July 6, 2014 at 8:54 AM
Those Legal Eagles won't know what hit them!

muuna_ said on July 7, 2014 at 5:54 AM
