Backstage: Toontown Retextured

Posted by The Toontown Team on September 16, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Hello, Toons far and wide! (Yeesh, we're running out of ways to say "Hi.") I'm Maya, the slate blue rabbit known as Slate. I am one of the three artists on the texturing team here at Toontown Rewritten. While Kati handles all of the graphic work and drawings, we take care of the things you see in-game -- and I'm here to tell you all about what we have in store!



The Claim to Fame

Way back in the day (Which hardly seems like a year ago.) before the days of Toontown Rewritten, I was just an ordinary Toon like you helping out with some fan art and graphic design on community fansites. Joey, our beloved Sir Max, secretly kept an eye on me while I was sharing my works. You can probably imagine how surprised I was when I was offered to join the team as their very first texture artist -- It was exciting to be welcomed in by the team, the very same ones I had been actively following for a few weeks in hopes that we would be able to play Toontown again!

While I would have loved to fly out over to a Toon HQ of our own, most of our design and development takes place over the internet! As you may have guessed from Agata's Backstage column, the Toontown Rewritten team is made of toons from all over the world. I live in Israel, which is half-a-world away from most of the team. You'd think that this would open up some problems for working together, but really it has made us think of all sorts of creative ways to collaborate without being near each other at all. Amazing what happens when Toons unite, eh?

Taking in a new Team

It didn't take us too long to understand that one person couldn't be texturing everything on their own. This time around, the team asked me to reach out to a few people that I had been watching and see if we can round up a Texturing Team for the massive project that we were about to undertake. (And it wasn't Doomsday, either! We'll get to that.)

Shortly after my arrival, my fellow texture artist Elizabeth (Also known as Joyful Roxy, or June) joined in and nailed everything I threw at her. A while after that in preparation for the election, we took in Roxana (Which you may know as Boo Boo) to help out. I know, I know -- we've been over how I joined the team, how the others got involved (And how you can as well!), and the mandatory hint towards something bigger, so what exactly does texturing compose of?

I'm glad you asked! Us texture artists are responsible for all of the new art you've seen in game -- the Election props, a couple of new shirts, and the upcoming ToonFest event as well. There is something bigger, however, that our real job here at Toontown Rewritten has composed of. Just like our upcoming Toontown International update, there has been another top-secret project brewing in the depths of Toontown Rewritten for the past year...

Tooning-Up Toontown

Let's face it: Toontown is old. As in 11 years old. Believe it or not, Toontown was designed to be able to run on a Windows 98 desktop -- that was released before some of you were even born! Those fancy-shmancy computers were revolutionary at the time of their release, but they certainly didn't have much processing power.

11 years later, computers have come wonderfully far -- and Toontown has too! Have you ever noticed any of those weird looking walls, flat trees, and blurry objects? Our main goal here at the texturing team of Toontown Rewritten for the past year has been to get rid of all of that, and bring the game up to speed with the rest of technology. For the first time, I officially present Toontown Retextured -- a complete revamp of the original Toontown graphics.

As you can see from the images, we've been taking every part of Toontown and turning it into something new with even more detail than before. It's new, it's clean, and it's completely toggleable! Our main focus throughout this side project of ours has been to make sure that we don't ruin the Toontown look -- we've taken every precaution that we can to make sure it looks just as great as the original, but we understand that not everyone wants to get rid of the blurry streets of our old town. If you like the original look, no sweat!



Now, don't get too excited yet! Just like Toontown International, Toontown Retextured is still being worked on and not quite ready for you guys to use. We'll be doing our best to get it out soon, and we'll keep you posted on our progress with occasional Backstage posts just like this one.

We'd love to hear what you think so far, and any suggestions for the future. Who knows, maybe we'll even get to see some new graphical options such as dynamic shadows and all sorts of other fancy options for Toons to enjoy!

Being a texture artist in Toontown Rewritten might sound like a lot of work, but we really enjoy every moment of it. We are really thankful for even being a part of this awesome game, and even more so for having the chance of seeing you all enjoy something we took part in remaking.

If you ever see us around town, make sure to say hello! That's it for this backstage column, but I'll see you in the newly-textured land of ToonFest!

Thanks for all you do! That's beautiful work, and I can't wait to see it in-game!

Sir Dynamite said on September 16, 2014 at 3:05 PM
Wow! Those retextured models look amazing! Awesome job, texture artists. You guys did great!

A Slate Blue Dog said on September 16, 2014 at 3:07 PM
Wow, the new textures look amazing!! Really sharp and crisp! I can't wait to be able to see them all ingame!

Mudkipz (Now known as Trickso) said on September 16, 2014 at 3:08 PM
The concept art for the new texture looks really nice! Although I wasn't born when ToonTown came out, I'm pretty sure that graphics, well, stank back in 2003! We've came a long way since then, but the Disney employees/cogs decided to keep the graphics like that and eventually close it down! Thanks again, and stay United, my Toony friends!

Dman said on September 16, 2014 at 3:09 PM
Oh man can't wait to see the awesome new textures!

Fat Bonzo Wrinklebrains said on September 16, 2014 at 3:11 PM
The new textures look so good! You guys did a great job! I cant wait to see what else is in store. :)

Faife said on September 16, 2014 at 3:12 PM
You guys are so awesome I am glad your doing this I was really sad when toontown closed... BUT now you have made my day I have been looking on here for a long time! I didn't like toontown's old textures so yay! Thanks!

Beary Sour said on September 16, 2014 at 3:15 PM
Love the new textures, cant wait for TTR textures it will look so much better :)

Doctor Oscar Baglethud said on September 16, 2014 at 3:22 PM
I am ready for the new look :D keep up the good work

Princess Trixie Twinkleberry said on September 16, 2014 at 3:24 PM
Woah! Nice guys!

Orange Monkey said on September 16, 2014 at 3:28 PM
Wow I am amazed at the detail you guys did I wish I could do that

NikoHamster said on September 16, 2014 at 3:28 PM
These look super cool and totally awesome, cant wait to see them in the game!

Crazy Peppersocks said on September 16, 2014 at 3:29 PM
The game has really come far! Great job with the graphics!

Buster said on September 16, 2014 at 3:35 PM
Toontastic job! That looks amazing! see you guys on the 19th!

Dolan Duck said on September 16, 2014 at 3:38 PM
Perhaps they can finally give the duck character ACTUAL DUCK FEET, its been driving my OCD crazy!!!

Galaxy Predator said on September 16, 2014 at 3:42 PM
That is so awesome! Thanks for all the hard work on the game! I love this game!

Luanater said on September 16, 2014 at 3:58 PM
Finally! I've been hoping and suggesting this project since Toontown PS started! So happy it's finally coming, can't wait :)

Nandatil said on September 16, 2014 at 4:03 PM
Oh my gosh. I've been dreaming of something like this to happen thank you guys :'D

Little Peanut Electrotoon said on September 16, 2014 at 4:03 PM
Oh my goodness!! It's so pretty!! I can't wait to see the finished product. Thanks for all the hard work, guys!

Mister Fluffy Dynoteeth said on September 16, 2014 at 4:03 PM
Oh my gosh. Those textures look AMAZING! So pretty, so beautiful! I can't wait to see all of them! Hopefully someday we CAN go beyond just higher-quality textures and add in things like Anisotropic Filtering, Dynamic Shadows, etc. Those would make the game shine even more in beauty :) But anyway. keep up the great work, guys! Toontown Retextured might be my most favorite update yet :D

Princess Bubbles Glitterpop said on September 16, 2014 at 4:05 PM
Whoa! I can't wait to see them in-game! They look so amazing!

Princess Bubbles Glitterpop said on September 16, 2014 at 4:07 PM
They look amazing and beautiful! Can't wait to see it in-game!

Princess Lily said on September 16, 2014 at 4:13 PM
This is amazing!! The only thing I'd have to suggest is different setting so for those who don't like the new look and wanna stay classic can see Toontown before, and so you can customize just what looks-up-to-date. This is clearly amazing though, it honestly looks like a whole new game! Like Toontown 2, only the same plot as the original, and made by the team everyone in the Toontown Community know and loves! Btw, I loved the bit of the ToonFest 2014 clothes that we got to see in one of the pictures! :P

Dribble Shot said on September 16, 2014 at 4:14 PM
Your truly amazing for all that you've done, thank you for restoring our childhood

Jada said on September 16, 2014 at 4:15 PM
I can't wait! It's look beautiful and I love what you did with most of the games!

Miss Taffy Petalmuffin said on September 16, 2014 at 4:16 PM
Cough cough, 2nd pictures, cough cough, Flippy covered, with letters to make it look like "Slappy" in the corner of the plane design?! Btw, Idk why that plane wasn't in the game, but it looks epic!

Cove said on September 16, 2014 at 4:16 PM
Gah! This is a dream come true. This is exactly what I had in mind as what a texture artist does, and I am so in love and content. The before and after looks handfuls better! So glad to see an appreciation for detail. Really great job texture artists and TTR team, I am impressed. Can't wait to see some or all of those blurry lines straightened up, they really are a hot bother for people who have an eye for detail! But, nice of the team to include an old un-textured version, REALLY thoughtful and sincere. I appreciate your work a lot! Thank you.

Funny Quackers said on September 16, 2014 at 4:23 PM
This is cool! Is it possible to add normal maps to any of the textures to give them a 3-D look? I was sitting on the edge of my seat reading this post, and when I heard of dynamic shadows, that's the one thing I really wanted more than HD Textures!

Epicrocker said on September 16, 2014 at 4:31 PM
Im speechless... Those textures you guys are creating... SO BEAUTIFUL!!!

Vanillabelle said on September 16, 2014 at 4:44 PM
I am a really big fan of yours Slate! ( I wouldn't exactly say that) I like watching your streams and hope to actually meet you when you livestream! Keep up the good work and see you at Friday!

Arceus said on September 16, 2014 at 4:45 PM
You Guys are doing "Toon-Tastic!" I really like the new textures...... I'm wondering why It's night in one of those pictures. Night and Day system maybe? Who knows! TTR Team, Your the best Team I have ever met. And We want you to know that. Only 3 more days guys, Then the Tooniness, BEGINS!

Echo said on September 16, 2014 at 4:58 PM
I've always complained to my friends on how the textures in Toontown looked blurry and flat. And now you guys are making this game even better (looking)! Keep up the great work!

Fireheart said on September 16, 2014 at 5:05 PM
I've always wanted a more detailed Toontown! In the Original Toontown, I was always disturbed by all the blurry images. Thank you so much Maya, Elizabeth, and Roxana! It seems like a lot of work for just three people. I hope to see y'all at the ToonFest!

Muscle Car said on September 16, 2014 at 5:06 PM
Can't wait to see the improved graphics in game! Keep up the great work.

Cara said on September 16, 2014 at 5:16 PM
This looks so beautiful! I'm excited to see them. Thanks for all of your hard work!

McWoof said on September 16, 2014 at 5:41 PM
You guys.... NEVER cease to amaze me. Re-textures is something I've always imagined. And you guys are bringing my imagination to LIFE! Now, considering how amazing this will be.... will we at least get the option to leave the game as it is?

said on September 16, 2014 at 5:51 PM
Wow love the new textures nice job!

Animatronic Foxy said on September 16, 2014 at 5:52 PM
These textures look so good! I cant wait for it to come out!

loud thunderchomp said on September 16, 2014 at 5:54 PM
Wow, that retexturing last looks neat! Keep up the toontastic pkwork!

Lutari said on September 16, 2014 at 5:59 PM
Dang, these new models look great! At first The only difference i could see was in Goofy Speedway and in Donald's DreamLand, but, while looking closer into the HQ and Trolley photos, I saw that everything looked much more clear and vibrant in quality and color. You guys are doing a much better job than disney did. As far as I know, they didn't do much revamps, just stuff like adding parties. Not to mention they were down for maintenance atleast once every month. Players would easily get bored. I always saw at least half of a district's population asking in bubble if there were game shows or something like that. You guys, however, are caring about the players, accepting feedback, and doing what you could do about it. I'd send in ideas like doodle costumes and 'reporting' a hacker (Almost all of them would say they could ban you if you reported them through Toontown) and all i'd get was some automatic response back saying they liked my idea or to just report them and they'll handle it. They never increased their firewall. They never did put in most of the ideas players sent in, I know for a fact. You guys have done an amazing role on Earth, bringing back something all of us loved. Thank you. Thank you so much. =)

Angel said on September 16, 2014 at 6:10 PM
Cool this looks awesome. Can't wait till all the things from the original come to this game really want to experience them and adding new things toontown never have would be sweet also.

Peppermint said on September 16, 2014 at 6:15 PM
The TTR staff always amazes me! Keep on being awesome!

Abby said on September 16, 2014 at 6:39 PM
I am so excited to see how fast you guys worked on Toontown Rewritten! Only 1 year! Wow! I cannot wait until doodles are launched because i miss mine so much. Good job!

Deputy J.C. said on September 16, 2014 at 6:46 PM
I love those new textures in the photos! Keep up the amazing work you guys can do! Love to see what y'all have planned for the future! I know it ain't gonna be disappointing!

Domino said on September 16, 2014 at 7:03 PM
Wow that's a lot of hard work I'd love to see what my toon looks like now! texture arists you've done a good job

Raven said on September 16, 2014 at 7:15 PM
It's looking great! I have totally noticed a difference in the textures and the overall game! It has come so far since the beginning!

Bunny said on September 16, 2014 at 7:22 PM
Gonna be so cool!

Sir 'nanas said on September 16, 2014 at 7:26 PM
Your artwork is truly breath-taking, thanks for all you do!

Maxwell said on September 16, 2014 at 7:41 PM
Cool texture! Excellent creative work! :) I been looking forward to it

Pancake Fuzzymash said on September 16, 2014 at 8:00 PM
This. is. amazing. Keep doing what you're doing!!!

Clarity said on September 16, 2014 at 8:17 PM
Great post, Slate! Wonderful job on all of new textures. I cannot wait to play in this newly textured world, and I could not be more thankful for such an amazing team!

Flameboy said on September 16, 2014 at 8:24 PM
You guys have done amazing with this project. Seems tough to do but you have Rewritten Toontown and better than ever. Love all you guys :D

Jordan said on September 16, 2014 at 8:41 PM
Oh...Emm...Gee! Those graphics are AMAZING! SO much better than the original blurry graphics in the original TT! Keep up the good work, and this game will be the game it should be!

Swanky Jake said on September 16, 2014 at 8:50 PM
Wow Slate that's awesome, I didn't know your job was so much on the TTR Team! The new textures look absolutely amazing, keep up the awesome and swanky work!

Sheriff Violet Wesealsticks said on September 16, 2014 at 10:11 PM
This is wonderful, and I'm so glad it's all toggle-able. I'm a super huge fan of allowing options in games so everyone can play as they want to. That being said, I'm super stoked. These look amazing! You did a great job, and I can't want to toggle them on when I get the chance.

Cazzy said on September 16, 2014 at 10:24 PM
Thank you so much guys, if anything can cheer up a guy with a bad cold it's this. It's a dream come true honestly.

Atinder said on September 16, 2014 at 10:30 PM
Wow, I may not even need to use my overhaul texture pack after this comes out! It looks great, well done TTR Team!

Good ol' Snappy Jinxwoof said on September 16, 2014 at 10:49 PM
Woah! Now that is Toon-tastic. My childhood, Now in HD!

Good ol' Ricky Dynoboom (Dynaboom) said on September 16, 2014 at 10:49 PM
Wow, those textures look AWESOME. I think I'd be ok with 2D trees sticking around, but they don't need to be blurry. I'm ok with the idea of new dynamic lighting as long as they are OFF by default. I know plenty of adults play this game, but it's STILL a family friendly game you want to be playable on your Mom's computer, ya know? (If you could get TTR Working on my Vista, that'd be great! Not sure what messes that up right now...) Hope to see this in-game soon! I think i'll make Toontown pictures/.videos look so much cooler too.

Little Taffy said on September 16, 2014 at 10:51 PM
These are gorgeous. The amount of detail is what I expected to see in TTO years ago. Glad to see you guys are taking the time to fix these. I can't wait to see what you do with the textures on the Cogs :)

Alyssa Lemonstripe said on September 17, 2014 at 2:51 AM
The new textures look gorgeous! I can't wait to see an up-to-date looking Toontown!

Tall Tan Kitty said on September 17, 2014 at 4:14 AM
Wow, all these backstage posts are amazing! Thanks a lot, TTR Team! You all rock!

Crazy Nutty Loony Woof said on September 17, 2014 at 6:16 AM
Wow this looks great can't wait to see this in game.

Cookie Bear said on September 17, 2014 at 6:22 AM
Wow, really nice work on the retexturing!

Ember said on September 17, 2014 at 8:09 AM
The new textures look amazing! Thanks for all the Team's hard work into bringing Toontown back :D I can't wait till Friday!!

Buddy Bear said on September 17, 2014 at 8:40 AM
Oh my, this is amazing. This is probably one of the biggest wishes of everyone, including me. Awesome!

Scooter said on September 17, 2014 at 8:58 AM
Oh my god u guys r amazing! I cant imagine the work texturing everything in toontown differently! Cant wait for toontown to come out re-textured!

Peaches Poppendorf said on September 17, 2014 at 9:38 AM
The new texturing makes the game even more fun to play just to see all the new graphics. Excellent work Toontown Rewritten staff! It's Toontastic!

Sam said on September 17, 2014 at 9:42 AM
You guys are doing great with all the new stuff, but i think it would be cool if there could be a few districts which are left unchanged, so like the state at which original toontown was when it shut down.

Blazie said on September 17, 2014 at 11:45 AM
This looks amazing! You guys and gals are really outdoing yourselves here! Toontown will look as good as new and it'll show the cogs that we're here to stay. Keep up the awesome work!

Shadow said on September 17, 2014 at 1:25 PM
Aw man this is great! The new textures look awesome, I was a bit worried though because I might wanna turn them off for nostalgic purposes, but i'm glad there's an option to disable it!

Flapjack said on September 17, 2014 at 1:43 PM
I love it! It's so crisp and fresh!

Master Bumblenerd said on September 17, 2014 at 2:08 PM
Wow, I hadn't realized ToonTown is so old! I'm glad you guys have decided to take the time to expand in this avenue. Can't wait!

Clockwork Alice said on September 17, 2014 at 2:10 PM
Oh my gosh! I'm so glad the textures are being updated! Thank you guys so much. ;u;

Miss Sally Wonderface said on September 17, 2014 at 2:25 PM
Toggleable, you say? *clears throat* You guys are the best!! ?*:.?. o(???)o .?.:*? As a very nostalgic person, this is the most exciting thing I've heard today! Everyone likes great graphics, yet sometimes you kinda want to look back into the past, you know. You take into account every player's feelings... so considerate. Thank you all so much!

Smirky Trickysmirk said on September 17, 2014 at 2:47 PM
I'm glad a new texture will come out. I love the texture of old Toontown, but i'm sure this new one will be great and i'll probably alternate when I stream! ;D

Peanut Sparkletoes said on September 17, 2014 at 3:09 PM
Wow. These textures look amazing! By the way, if you have a PlayTime on or after the 19th, why don't you cancel it, because the full version is opening! Hooray!

Aarobn said on September 17, 2014 at 3:18 PM
I cannot wait for the new textures! So much work has been done since alpha! Hopefully there will be an option to switch from the new textures to the old textures because there is always those 2 people who want the old textures. Amazing work! I cannot wait for whats next!

Wacky Zany Google said on September 17, 2014 at 3:40 PM
Can't wait! The Tooniverse is looking more Toony than ever! And a reminder to you fellow Toons out there, two (Still weird to say that word without it turning into "meow") days left until Toonfest!

Doctor Quackers said on September 17, 2014 at 3:52 PM
Everything looks incredibly amazing! I for one have no qualms with playing Toontown Rewritten with the texture of the original game since I found that to just be one of its little cute quirks but the detail and life that you bring to everything looks simply unbelievable! Thank you :D

Captain Twinklepoof said on September 17, 2014 at 3:58 PM
Cleaning up all the textures is a great idea! The models look great, cant wait for them to start being implemented!

Sassy Bloo said on September 17, 2014 at 4:28 PM
I absolutely love the new textures. I am looking forward to seeing all the beautiful work implemented in the game.

Evie said on September 17, 2014 at 4:48 PM
I LOVE <3 <3 this "Backstage: Toontown Retextured" news I find it so intriguing, Maya you seem like such a fun person to talk to I hope we Toons get a chance to see you around Toontown once it opens! Being honest I didn't know about this "Toontown Rewritten" idea at first I never knew there were people out there willing to bring Toontown back until a few months ago when I was surfing the web by that time I knew Toontown had closed which made me so sad I swear some tears even fell, that's how devastated I was. That was one of my favorite childhood memories that I spent with one of my closest friends ever! ;C Anyway! :D After I got over the whole "Toontown closing" thing I just one day started surfing the web, watching hilarious cat videos (Which is worth your time watching! Don't judge! >:O) and looking at pictures, I decided to check out how Toontown was doing. When I found out about Toontown rewritten and how it was going to bring Toontown back I was so excited I jumped off my bed and rushed to tell my brother. Me and my brother spent hours reading the news from the beginning THE BEGINNING from when Toontown Rewritten started to now, I have read every news even though I wasn't following the project from the beginning! :D The Toontown Rewritten group is doing such an A-MA-ZING job with everything, I can't wait for it to open soon I know it'll be great. Thank you for all your hard work from the designing to keeping us up to date on whats going on and what you guys have been doing, so how about we Toons stay united from across the world! Toons of the world, UNITE!! >:O

Z.Z. said on September 17, 2014 at 4:48 PM
Thank you for all of the hard work you guys do. It's really amazing what you can accomplish. I love the new texture and I can't wait to see the new shirts. :D Keep up the awesome work!

Cecil said on September 17, 2014 at 5:07 PM
This is extremely exciting! I was thinking about not playing Toontown Rewritten, but this has made me reconsider! I can't wait!

John said on September 17, 2014 at 5:23 PM
Awesome! I can't wait for the new retextured designs! It will make everything seem like your looking at an HD television on ToonTown! #Can'tWaitForOpening

Colliefornia Roll said on September 17, 2014 at 5:41 PM
The retextured models are incredibly clear and crisp in color and design. Love, love, love what you are all doing with this game. You've taken what Disney had created and bumped it up several notches in quality, content, and fun. Keep up the great work and please know that I and many other people appreciate ALL that everyone in the TTR team does in recreating (and inventing) a better game than the original. That's a compliment of the highest order!

Meeka Kitty said on September 17, 2014 at 5:42 PM
This is amazing! It's just what Toontown needs. Now we just need to add tails to the animals... :)

Feliciano said on September 17, 2014 at 5:43 PM
This is really cool! Goodness, I can't wait for Friday! I've been eagerly counting down the days. See you all then!! I can't wait to see these rockin' textures!!

Soft Paws said on September 17, 2014 at 5:46 PM
Amazing graphics! It's awesome how much more detailed the pictures are from the game. (I noticed the tiny cracks in the HQ...A-W-E-S-O-M-L-Y DETAILED) These precise fixes are very much needed fro TTR..(we don't want any old looking things around a new refurnished game now do we...?) One thing I ask is that for the outfits..that I believe you said you guys work on?...New clothes!!!! No boring one colored shirts..UGH! We need some color in toontown! A diversity of designs! But anyway, great work on the many fixes to the game, they are deeply appreciated by us toons of the world. Toons from Hawaii to to Asia are appreciating the work you do for TTR and I can't wait to see you all at Toonfest!

Bluemoon said on September 17, 2014 at 5:49 PM
Whew! I cant wait to see this awesome piece of artwork in Toontown Rewritten!

Peppy Supermonkey said on September 17, 2014 at 6:10 PM
It's really gorgeous :)

Spark said on September 17, 2014 at 6:45 PM
Oh! :O DA TEXTURE LOOKS FAB! Err, well, I meant that those new textures feel quite vivid and really show off impressive new graphics!( Well in my opinion, that is) :3 I can't wait to travel around Toon Town Rewritten with revamped, flourishing textures! :D

Soapy Suds said on September 17, 2014 at 7:28 PM
Toggleable! Amazing! I commend you for all the hard work with the new textures, while still catering to those who can't live without the nostalgia, like me =)

Jim said on September 17, 2014 at 7:45 PM
Wow looks great!!

Sunny Buddy said on September 17, 2014 at 7:53 PM
Holy mother of squirting flowers! This is great! Can't wait to log-on(if I can) and see this, this MASTERPIECE! You guys rock! P.S. The textures are ToonTASTIC!!

Pet Cat said on September 17, 2014 at 8:19 PM
Awesome! I'm so amazed about this! Something that was never gonna be introduced to Disney's Toontown. Can't wait to see it in-game! :)

I love being able to play toontown rewritten on my mac laptop. when toontown still existed, i had the demo version, but there are so few things that can be done in a demo, it just wasn't as fun. but you guys did an awesome job at designing toontown rewritten, i really love the non-blurriness. awesome graphics, and awesome job at fixing the crash problems. since ive started playing in the rewritten version, ive noticed fewer and fewer crashes. AWESOME WORK!!!

.....Wow this has come so far. i cant believe that TTR retextured the stuff. it was bugging me that the stuff was flat. Again thanks ttr for working on this

These look amazing! I can't wait to walk around Toontown again, this time looking better than ever. I also noticed that whenever a toon enters the area, I get a lag spike that usually lasts around four seconds. I hope you guys can get that fixed before TTR is released, if not it's going to be disastrous on the opening day. :(

Really looking forward to the new textures. Can't believe how far Toontown has come since I started playing back in 2002. So excited about Toonfest 2014. I've booked the day off work as holiday!

That's so amazing! II was just thinking about how bad the texturing was the other day! love what you're doing with the game so far, keep it up!!

I can't WAIT until ToonFest 2014. You are an amazing texture artist! I wish I could draw like the team!

Crumbly Crumblecrumbs said on September 18, 2014 at 7:21 AM
Your work is amazing. <3 I'm so excited for ToonFest!

Popcorn Snorklefoot said on September 18, 2014 at 8:34 AM
This is awesome! You all have done a wonderful job to keep in as "toony" as you have. It is also very thoughtful of you all to keep the original. But as for me I would rather have the more detailed streets than the blurry ones. Ha!

Roxas said on September 18, 2014 at 8:49 AM
Yay! Thank you for finally retexturing ToonTown! Can't wait for to see this In-Game!

Biscuit Bagel Noodle said on September 18, 2014 at 9:11 AM
Super neat! I look forward to ToonFest tomorrow! I hope I can make it!!

So exited for toontown rewritten, bad news is that I came down with a sore throat [possibly step throat] and I have a fever. hoping it goes away so I can enjoy toontown rewritten at its fullest. I wanted to say one last thing before toontown opened up. each and every one of us our toon enough. The TTR team has spent a lot of money and a lot of their time and I wanted to say thanks. To all those toons who knew me on toontown thanks for all the good memory's and I hope to see u all very soon

Loopy Bongo Snorkelfink said on September 18, 2014 at 9:31 AM
And again some very talented toons showing up with great stuff. *thumbs up* Looking forward to see it ingame. :D

Skip Flipperpoof said on September 18, 2014 at 11:07 AM
Textures are great, but I think I'll stick with the origional look because I've been looking at it since I was 4 years old!

Pikonio said on September 18, 2014 at 11:27 AM
This is awesome

Sarko said on September 18, 2014 at 11:49 AM
One word....... PRETTY! It looks absolutely amazing. I love the HD textures and would love to see more. Good job guys and keep up the completely AMAZING work!!!

Crazy Lionel Bizzenphooey said on September 18, 2014 at 11:57 AM
Woot! You guys even remember Windows 98! My parents gave me theirs and I played Toontown on it. One of the first games I ever played. Nice job on the textures, it looks better than it was before.

said on September 18, 2014 at 12:10 PM
Can't wait to see these textures in action!

Jerry said on September 18, 2014 at 1:00 PM
The new textures look amazing! I can't wait to see them during gameplay!

popo589 said on September 18, 2014 at 1:12 PM
I really love the new texture!Can't wait to get in and see it!Nice work!

cool domino fuzzy foot said on September 18, 2014 at 1:14 PM
It is tomorrow! I can't wait to play it!

Movie Star said on September 18, 2014 at 1:31 PM
The new textures look fabulous! As an artist, I know the frustrations of being an artist, but it can be fun just making the art! Keep up the great work!

Kit said on September 18, 2014 at 3:40 PM
These look amazing! I'm super excited. Graphic updates such as shadows sound awesome as well - maybe day/night cycles one day too?

dtlux1 said on September 18, 2014 at 4:39 PM
I love the new textures. Can't wait to play Toontown for the first time ever when Rewritten comes out. I was too late for Toontown Online.

Weird Zowie Zooblezilla said on September 18, 2014 at 5:33 PM
This looks so much better. Your guys really did great with this, can't wait to see more!

MissKittyFantastico said on September 18, 2014 at 5:46 PM
Beautiful work I can't wait to see my child hood come back tomorrow!

Kiera said on September 18, 2014 at 5:52 PM
Awesome! But if we do end up liking the blurry things better, how do we change it back? Thanks! :)

Ice Spark said on September 18, 2014 at 9:56 PM
WOW! Awesome!

Four Leaf Clover said on September 18, 2014 at 10:01 PM
I'm glad you guys are making the best for everyone out here! It's nice again to feel the toony sensation of playing this game and never fails to take out the child in me! Toons of the world, Unite! :D

Orange Dog said on September 18, 2014 at 11:22 PM
I'm very excited to see this new refined Toontown Rewritten! Disney chose to keep the animations the same and shut it down with no emotion (They let the cogs win). But the TTR team was TOON ENOUGH to rewrite the story of Toontown. Very proud of the TTR team and hope to see more updates.

TheRealGuy said on September 19, 2014 at 5:59 AM
That looks amazing guys! Great job!

Dudley Sparkledoodle said on September 19, 2014 at 7:36 AM
AWESOME! I always wanted something like this to happen, and you guys at TTR have done it!

SweetSallySue said on September 19, 2014 at 8:05 AM
This is great! I love these backstage columns! :D Keep them coming! :D

Super Raven said on September 19, 2014 at 1:08 PM
OMG, thank you!! I have always hated the graphics and that took away some of my love, but thanks a TON!!!!

Valentine said on September 19, 2014 at 1:12 PM
It looks absolutely stunning, you guys are doing an amazing job! :)

Electrozapper The Second said on September 19, 2014 at 2:03 PM
Wow! This is amazing!

CuteSunnyBunny said on September 19, 2014 at 2:32 PM
Its so much more texture than before! I cannot wait to see this in game today!

Candy Rewritten said on September 19, 2014 at 3:35 PM
You guys are amazing. Texturing was literally my least favorite part of taking animation classes, and I could not imagine trying to do an entire game, even as a team!

Watermouse said on September 19, 2014 at 4:18 PM
Wow new texture i can wait to see this !

Samantha said on September 19, 2014 at 6:03 PM
WOW so pretty!! Well done!! I really like the light in the door.

Not a Toon... Yet said on September 19, 2014 at 8:08 PM
WOW! Superb retextures! That looks better than the original game! (Well, that's PROBABLY what you were going for.)

William / Fl4sHNoX said on September 20, 2014 at 5:16 AM
Great ! :) I thought about it as soon as I knew that Toontown was going to be recreated ! :) And the option to turn this off is a great idea too ! :) I'm looking forward to this, since I was going to propose it ! :) Keep up the good work, and have fun ! =)

Angel said on September 20, 2014 at 5:38 AM
Can I just say that I really love that you guys are trying your best to stay true to the original game, sprucing things up and improving upon what is already there, instead of completely revamping and changing everything? That's something that not many games do at this day and age (people are sooo obsessed with modernizing everything), so I - and probably many others as well - am eternally grateful to you for that!

Cute Stuff said on September 20, 2014 at 8:04 AM
Oh my gawd. That was amazing, Slate!! I subscribed to you a few months ago. I was shocked when I saw the before and after picture of the Toon Library!! It looks better than ever!! I can't thank everyone enough. I love this. Now, I need to read the others before I can play :D!!!! ~ Cute Stuff

Blue Slushy said on September 20, 2014 at 10:09 AM
Amazing artwork! I can tell you've worked super hard, and it turned out toon-tastic! Really great job, hope to see everyone around!

King Spike Weaselberry said on September 20, 2014 at 2:28 PM
Late to comment - but man, am I excited for the upgrades. In my last times playing TTO, I had definitely grown tired of the fuzzy, poor textures.
