Rhymes for New Times

Posted by The Toontown Team on July 12, 2014 at 2:00 PM

"Rhymes and Times" -- It seems that we're at it again!
We love doing these posts, but we just never know when.
This one, however, brings a bunch of better news!
Unlike the last one, which was the cure of "Boo-hoos."

Because of this news, this post has little to no pickle.
Although, you'll be happy that I found your Popsicle.
This post, instead, delivers merely a bit of some insight.
We've been hard at work, yet admittedly we love a good Cog-fight.

Since we last spoke, we've made progress galore!
As promised, we delivered Elections, Cogs, and much more!
Some may even wonder if we're progressing too fast...
After all, we're building up this technology to last.

You see, fellow Toons, Toontown is nearly done!
Most of the features completed, and we're all ready for fun.
But while we all love the content, there really is much, much more.
Without proper technology, quality will become quite poor.

Let's make a quick list here: Stability, moderation, testing...
Perhaps a new website, comic, or vinaigrette dressing...
Bread, milk, three tons of butter, Sierra Mist...
Oh -- sorry, I started to recite my shopping list!

A few others to peg on: Launcher, and Linux in a bit,
Stress testing, servers, some celebratory T-Shirts to knit...
You get the point, though, with the technologies and all.
Really, without them, I'm afraid we might fall.

"Are those hard to do?", "Should we all worry?",
"But it already looks done!", "You guys really should hurry."
"I'm getting impatient!" (As if you already weren't.)
"Will the servers be fixed, or are we doomed to crash and be burnt?"

Toons, I see you haven't change any bit!
Many questions to be asked, and all with good wit.
The first two are easy: Not at all, and no.
Gameplay has been done for a while, you know!

The biggest problem of all: Keeping you entertained!
With all the things to do, it leaves us quite strained.
Although the content is done, we've been releasing it slow.
That leaves us to work on other aspects of MMO.

One of those aspects being your next question: The servers!
They've been running under par, at least to you observers.
Are they staying this way? Absolutely not, of course!
It's not a matter of money, but rather the source.

Over the course of Beta, we've ran into a bug here and there.
Not impossible to fix, but it requires much more care.
Care is exactly what we'll give it -- if we can!
The only thing we need is your patience for this plan.

And so, at long last, we get to the purpose of this post.
The content will be lacking, but we're far from a ghost.
Toontown Rewritten is in the final stretch!
We just need your patience -- that's the one catch.

With that, it looks like it's time to bid adieu.
We're off to fix the servers, and a few bugs too.
We're taking our time with this to ensure that you're happy.
(Oh -- and one of those things might involve Slappy.)

July 11, 2014 [ttr-beta-v1.3.4]

• Major cleanup for the Treasure Dive minigame

Wow what a great rhyme this is! I think we are all excited for this, especially the kids! It's great to see our childhood come back. But the servers don't seem to have very much speed and that is what they lack! However, I am obviously giving you a chance to upgrade it! What kind of toon would I be if I just trashed it? So you guys carry on with your awesome work. Oh and one more thing be careful in those streets where those pesky cogs lurk! Well now it's time to say good bye. I lost my play time today it surely made me sigh. But oh well, it'll get better! I bet the next big update will leave me with my mouth open, not able to type a single post with a single letter!

Agentmeade said on July 12, 2014 at 3:32 PM
I totally understand we've been waitin, but for sure we have not been misstaken! You all have been workin so so hard, and we just want to thank ya! I know my rhymes sometimes don't rhyme, but I just wanted to say it in time. I am grateful for the team we have, just hope that the servers would behave! I'm not the best at rhyming but I do see a bright future for toontown rewritten! Keep up the amazing work!

Petunia SparkleFlipper said on July 12, 2014 at 4:17 PM
Thanks for the update, delivered not a moment too late... And even the ice cream at our estate!

Dream Believer said on July 12, 2014 at 4:32 PM
Many are grateful & patient while others feel the bugs are no laughing matter. "Proper care IS needed for rewards to be great!" is what we say to the latter. Playing toontown with family & friends (old & new) IS what makes us happy. Quality relationships in a quality game - especially if we can find Slappy!

Katara said on July 12, 2014 at 5:49 PM
Nice Rhyme!! I'm really excited for this! When ToonTown opens everyone will be at bliss I try to keep my pies ready, but it's hard to keep myself steady The cogs are going down with a big frown For all you cogs out there we need your attention, cause this might cause a lot of tension. We're coming after you. It'll be so bad that you would want to be out of view! It's time to leave now so I'll leave with a bow! *Bows*

Princess said on July 12, 2014 at 5:52 PM
Oh my goodness! I'm still staying with you guys! :) Trust me, EVERY Post you guys do gets me happier and happier! And by this time? IM JUMPING OUT OF MY SEATTTT!!!!!!! :D keep up the AWESOMEEEE Work!!!! ~Princess~

Mark said on July 12, 2014 at 5:54 PM
Take your time making the servers perfect, and the rest will fall into place. Other than that the game is great, good job TTR.

Princess said on July 12, 2014 at 6:15 PM
Some of us are stuck with no laughter, But i'm sure they will have some after Toontown is better! I know toontown is sick, But toons will still kick! I know some people are sad, But don't be bad! and because I have to go, At the Burrg don't drown in the snow!

Camembear said on July 12, 2014 at 6:26 PM
Hearing of Slappy makes me happy! Thanks team for working hard and steady. We're taking what's delivered gratefully. And keep on playing happily, joyfully!

Peanut said on July 12, 2014 at 7:31 PM
Glad for these updates, they are quite great! Take You're Time do not Rush! You are doing quite Divine! All that is left is to watch and wait.

Ash Kimberly Buster said on July 12, 2014 at 9:00 PM
It's hard to believe you did this quite quick, but it seems you are on the other end of the stick. The animation is hard and the programming too, I wonder how many more days this will be through.- (Done) I understand you have a lot of trouble, and probably the work will be doubled. The days, the months, and the years have been counted, but all of these thing have been mounted. I understand you have a life like you and I, but can you find more time? All of the toons have waited so long, I can't believe wrote this in song. You are skilled and hard workers, I understand but can you make Toontown Rewritten stand? Toontown is fun, but when will it be done? We are all at the gate, let us in so we can make our fate. It is time we know, so put on a show! We will be ready, so hold steady. Lights, graphics, and game play to be seen! It's time to go to work if know what I mean. That's all I say for today, I can't wait to do this another day!

AuntSnickelfritz said on July 12, 2014 at 10:44 PM
Roses are red, Violets are blue, ToonTown Rewrittens' awesome, I'm blowing kisses to you! I'm sure not a poet, but the game is quite fine, Pat yourselves on the back, We're having a great time!

Violet said on July 13, 2014 at 6:48 AM
Thanks For the update and the ice cream cones at our estate! Batteling the cogs are a new hobby of mine, I'm already starting to loose track of time! Roses Are Red Violets are blue Toontown Rewritten is awesome, I am blowing kisses to you!

ProfPalefuddy said on July 13, 2014 at 7:50 AM
Thanks a heap, for the up keep Toon's who moan should be locked in the throne You guys and gals are going great When your done you'll get through anyone's Gate The lessons and skills learned will take you far I wish oh I wish I could only drive your toon car

Toon said on July 13, 2014 at 8:18 AM
Did I hear support for Linux soon? Hooray! Now I'll be able to enjoy my toon! Battling cogs, and caring for doodles, We'll have tons of fun, by the oodles. I'll stop bothering you now, with this rather bad rhyme, but I'll leave with the thought of playing toontown in time.

Saiko said on July 13, 2014 at 12:19 PM
Everyone else does it, so I'll do it too. Toontown staff, here's a rhyme just for you! Congratulations throughout Beta, kicking it into high gear! We're all still waiting, you have our loyal ear! To this waiting, I'm sure we've all been hateful, but for your speed we are all quite grateful! Thanks for your quick updates, which help the time pass. I'm happy to hear the time approaches at last! Toontown rewritten will open, quite belated. But the new question is, what date's estimated? I mean, we are all excited, don't get me wrong, but the topic to many is now, how long? What we've looked for for months is a date of release, some idea of a time when this waiting will cease! Whenever you can possibly tell us, a release date would be good. I don't want to rush your complex work, that much is understood. Now that I've gotten this one question off of my chest, good luck in this final consummation, I wish you the best! This post was fun, even if I can't rhyme. But for now, it seems, back to the Playline!!!!!

Gifti3 said on July 13, 2014 at 2:41 PM
Thank you, thank you for all the work you've done! When the game is complete, it will be much more fun. Until then though, keep up the good work. And I will be patient and try not to go beserk.

leahtwinkles said on July 13, 2014 at 3:52 PM
Wow you guys are the best without a doubt!!!! Every post you guys make drops open our mouths!! I'm sure when TTR is open we will all be impressed! From all the hard work you coded and dressed :)! Thank you for bringing back Toontown! You left us all with smiles not one frown!!! :)

Miss Coconut Purpleswirl said on July 14, 2014 at 7:28 AM
I've been a little impatient for the past month, but knowing that you're so close to finishing the game makes me feel good, because I've missed Toontown since the night it closed. When I heard about this website, I thought it was a rumor at first, but now I've been following you guys since April. It's a good feeling knowing that you have someone bringing back the game that you played forever!

Caw Tastrophe said on July 14, 2014 at 11:37 AM
Wow, what fabulous work you have done! When we will play, it will be quite fun! This is something we can all appreciate! In the meantime, I watch streams made by Slate! I know this game is still in Beta. But you guys will do the best, huh? Everyone is excited to play, they catch up on the progress day by day. You guys type longer poems than me, but it's a good thing this game is probably free! I can't stay here for the whole day. But when the game is in public release, we will all shout yay! I have to say after a while, crocodile! But I bet you will make this game worthwhile! - Caw Tastrophe

Prancing said on July 14, 2014 at 11:41 AM
I hope those popsicles won't melt quick. If they do, they will be just a stick.

Purrincess Lily said on July 14, 2014 at 1:48 PM
ALMOST DONE! OMG!! Ooh, let me do a rhyme-poem...! Ahem.. You say its almost done but I know to be patient It will take lots of time to rebuild the toontown nation with even more updates and better quality then ever So we know toontown is not gone forever I know you want to make this game as toontastic as can be But being impatient I say, hurry! But I know your working hard and it will be worth the wait And you will bring toontown back to life! Early, or late I know you'll pull through and I will finally get to play The game I played since I was 4 every day! So with toontown rewritten a new start, a new toon life I'm gonna happily say... TOONS OF THE WORLD UNITE! :) Thanks guys for all your hard work

Akura said on July 14, 2014 at 9:38 PM
Thanks for recreating this amazing game, and I'm sure others feel the same! I'm speechless at how you guys can work so fine, just coding away to make Toontown shine. We all are extremely grateful for your serious work, that all we can do is return a silly smirk. Thanks you developers for putting in your best, you can be sure that we're excited and blessed! Thanks developers for returning my childhood!

Rainbow Warrior of Awesomness said on July 15, 2014 at 6:31 AM
OMG! You found my Popsicle?? I have been looking for that for DAYS! Oh. Now it's more of an orange Popsicle flavored puddle if you ask me...

X3 said on July 15, 2014 at 7:36 AM
Good job guys!

Clover said on July 15, 2014 at 1:50 PM
Hello TTR team here is just a rhyme just for too! If a pickle in a pepper compete with the dealer who is the toon just to defeater? I know my Rhyming might not be so appitising but so you can hear for a longing ear. If the toon of two run with the pies where shall the journey fly? You are toons of two hundreds, The toontastic toons are right inside you. The TTR team is a fantastic reem when they can just be a team. ( done ) Sorry if my rhymes dont do so good to high that the flutter in the sky.

Little Sammie Fuzzychomp said on July 16, 2014 at 5:41 AM
The invasion/cog HQ fix is very welcome. Now if there was a way to make it so only that one HQ out of 4 was affected during any invasion. Seems silly for sellbot HQ to be full of Legal Eagles, for example. But Lawbot HQ? Of course! This game has been going great, can't wait to see what comes next!

Anna Cat said on July 17, 2014 at 7:58 AM
Your so great at rhytming, and TTR Is near Me and my siblings will give a big cheer! Many are happy and many our glad, And while we are wating i'll try not to get sad, It looks so exciting, oh its so clear That TTR Is superdooper near Well I'll say goodbye, cause its time to go So i'll give you, a big CHEERIO!

Princess Lily said on July 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM
Another rhyme post! I love reading these things! And Slappy has been like, a main concern about this plot I can't get out of my head (aside from Surlee)! I'd make another comment that rhymed like before, but there's nothing I can type that can express how excited I am and how patient I'll be for what's to come! :D
