Toontown Tweaks: How Many Clicks to the Center?

Posted by Lil Oldman on January 31, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Ah, you are back. You have been hoping for tweaks, but no tweaks do I have to announce. Tweaks do not compare to the strategic elements I have chosen to speak of. You will need these for the ToonTasks for which I am to give you, so pay close attention. I am Lil Oldman. Let us begin.



My reputation throughout Toontown has preceded me, I'm sure, for the apparent "difficult" tasks I have to give. Many of these tasks include the defeat of the Cog Buildings that plague our streets - yet Toons still complain as if they are doing my chores. Lumpy Cheese is a necessity, not a luxury.

Bah, be grateful, for if you have been diligent enough for your Cog Radar, the maps of the street now include Cog Buildings. If you have no radar, nonetheless, a task building will be shown as grey if it has been taken over by the suits. Do not thank me for this change - in my day, you would have walked the streets endlessly as it should be. Toons of today have grown spoiled by the technology of Loony Labs.

Onto the more important change for strategic Toons, such as myself, that wish not to bother with silly maps of the road: At times, the Cog's height proves to be too high to view their level. The battle camera shall now adjust to the height of the tallest to properly display their name. If this proves to be unsuccessful, you may now press the "Levels" button to show the statistics of your opponents. This display is optional, as to not clutter your strategic view.

As you grow closer to the center of the release of your tweaks, remember: Not even the wisest of owls could answer the question of the Tootsie Pop. Do not ask me what this means. I do not know.

WOW! This is Toontastic! Keep up the good work!

Little Dynamite said on January 31, 2015 at 12:07 PM
Nice! ;D

Fireball said on January 31, 2015 at 12:08 PM
OMG! Thank you so much! This is a huge Life Saver!

Flower said on January 31, 2015 at 12:08 PM
Thank you Lil Oldman, even though you do not like this new update, I believe you have something to do with it. :)

Peppermint said on January 31, 2015 at 12:09 PM
Awesome! These are some simple tweaks, but will make an amazing addition to the game! Thanks TTR Staff!! :D

looneylaffer said on January 31, 2015 at 12:12 PM
Oh wow! Thanks Lil Oldman! Sorry for complaining...

King Droopy Electrohoffer said on January 31, 2015 at 12:14 PM
This is awesome, now I don't have to risk picking the wrong cog.

Zoot said on January 31, 2015 at 12:15 PM
Ahh, Lil' Oldman, simply one of my favorite NPCs in the entire game for his unique personality! This will save hours of my life, as there have been moments where I take a long time just walking up to the end of a street for a quest building only to find it has been conquered; not to mention the many times I've attacked the wrong cog due to not noticing its level. Thank you! Also, Lil' Oldman, it takes three clicks to get to the center of the street; at least, according to the wise owl. ;)

Flower said on January 31, 2015 at 12:17 PM
LOL..... Tootsie Pop commercial reference. I DO KNOW THE ANSWER.... 3. Great job with humor :3

Max said on January 31, 2015 at 12:17 PM
The image URL says too many bossbots... Could this mean something?

Rufus said on January 31, 2015 at 12:18 PM
Very good. Verrrrrry good!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lime Cat said on January 31, 2015 at 12:19 PM
Hmmm... that picture filename seems quite suspicious. "15-1-31_toomanybossbots.jpg"

Super Tubby Thundersmirk said on January 31, 2015 at 12:23 PM
Excellent work! This is gonna help a LOT when i need to find bldgs and during battle to find out the level of certain cogs! Simply astounding!

SNEAKY SQUEEKY said on January 31, 2015 at 12:25 PM
I love this new add on Old Man, you are a genius!

David Barks Alot said on January 31, 2015 at 12:28 PM
This is going to be amazing and very helpful!

Alex Mc Toony said on January 31, 2015 at 12:33 PM
Wow! Thanks so much, Loony Labs! I have been running around endlessly today trying to enter your building, Lil Oldman, only to find it a cog building. Several times!

Lucky said on January 31, 2015 at 12:39 PM
Amazing update! I've always wanted this feature, thanks TTR Team :3

Sir Goopy Whiskerspeed said on January 31, 2015 at 12:40 PM
Yay! I always thought it would be cool if we could see Cog Buildings on the M.A.P.S.! Thank you Lil Oldman! P.S.: I'm glad I got your Lumpy Cheese back!

Super Curly Bumbleberry said on January 31, 2015 at 12:41 PM
This is super duper toontastic! I'm on my last task before I have to visit you again, and I've been complaining a lot. Honestly though, I love the challenge your tasks offer, and all the crazy stuff you make us do offers a ton of fantastic gag training! I'm hoping to max my throw and squirt tracks very soon! These updates sound lovely, and are sure to make the game more enjoyable. There will be less getting aggravated because I just ran all the way to the very end of the street only to find that the building I need has been taken over. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Pochard said on January 31, 2015 at 12:42 PM
Not bad for making things easy! I got a feeling that your tomorrow update might be the biggest but I can't be any sure but all I'll know is tht it will be good! :D

The Dark Cat said on January 31, 2015 at 12:42 PM
OMG THANKS TTR TEAM, THE ONE OF THE BEST NEWS!

Icedragon said on January 31, 2015 at 12:51 PM
I cant wait for this useful feature!

Percy said on January 31, 2015 at 12:54 PM
Dang. I never knew Lol Old.... Oops. I mean LIL Oldman could do such a thing. Keep it up, guys. You're doing great!

Connor said on January 31, 2015 at 12:54 PM
Thanks this will help put so much, anyone else notice that the picture shows 95 gags?? XD

Iceberg said on January 31, 2015 at 12:54 PM
Finally! No more wondering where higher level cogs ended up.

Cloudpaw said on January 31, 2015 at 12:55 PM
Thanks Oldman! and I counted 57.3 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

Ninjacat said on January 31, 2015 at 1:07 PM
Yes! I will love this part of the update! Keep up the amazing tweaks guys! :)

Destroyer said on January 31, 2015 at 1:15 PM
Yes! One of the most annoying things in the game fixed! finally!

Super Star said on January 31, 2015 at 1:18 PM
This an amazing feature!! Thank you very much!!! <3

Anonymous said on January 31, 2015 at 1:23 PM
That picture... all gags in it.. could this mean something?

Crazy Kitty said on January 31, 2015 at 1:24 PM
yes! finaly! now you know when a bldg is taken over and now u can see level without worrying about cogs like big cheese being too tall to see them best update u did good ttr and i hope it stay like this

Deputy Rainbow said on January 31, 2015 at 1:29 PM
Awesome! Thanks

Duck Tape said on January 31, 2015 at 1:32 PM
I love the Tootsie Pop reference xD

King Peanut said on January 31, 2015 at 1:37 PM
the answer to how many licks FYI is 582. i have a lot of time on my hands XD

Electro said on January 31, 2015 at 1:37 PM
Nice

Super Popcorn Thunderdoodle said on January 31, 2015 at 1:42 PM
Anyone notice that Lil Oldman has every gag track?

said on January 31, 2015 at 1:42 PM
Brilliant. Thank You. Can we have all 7 gag tracks as shown in the picture ;)?

Speed said on January 31, 2015 at 1:47 PM
This'll help sooo much THANK YOU TTR!

Mr. Toon said on January 31, 2015 at 1:51 PM
Oh that's so cool!

Kool Kat said on January 31, 2015 at 2:06 PM
All of these tweaks are toontastic! Can't wait for the 1st of Febuary for the big tweak!

Moon said on January 31, 2015 at 2:07 PM
I never thought I would say this, but thanks Little Oldman :D

Ooowoo said on January 31, 2015 at 2:14 PM
We don't have to remember the levels anymore yay! This will be helpful in bosses because usually people forget the levels.

Sir Dynamite said on January 31, 2015 at 2:29 PM
Fantastic! This will really help me out when toontasking. Thanks, TTR! :-)

Marigol said on January 31, 2015 at 2:54 PM
THANKS SO MUCH THIS IS VERY HELPFUL! :) and 120 licks to get to the center of the tootsie pop, ive counted..

nice bear said on January 31, 2015 at 2:57 PM
what a great update! tomorrow is the final day! wonder what its gonna be/

Granny Good Witch said on January 31, 2015 at 2:58 PM
Great changes I think. I like the adjustments to the height the best. I never know what the levels are especially in the VP. Thanks for making Toontown Rewritten if more fun.

Bingo Whiskerbounce said on January 31, 2015 at 3:07 PM
Hahaha, I know I saved your life yesterday, Mr. Oldman, but you don't need to go through all the trouble <3 An SOS card is reward enough. ... Well if you insist! XD *Zelda find item sound*

Supernerd said on January 31, 2015 at 3:13 PM
OK, things are getting better and better. Seeing invasions from the district swap page? Seeing cog buildings immediately upon entering a street? Now the only thing left to do is constantly update the Cog breakdown on the M.A.P.S. so that invasions and Cog Buildings are reflected on the Street Map!

Silly Wonderfolf said on January 31, 2015 at 3:22 PM
Look closely at how many gags you can carry. 95.

Dynamite Cheese Cake said on January 31, 2015 at 3:24 PM
Whoa that sounds amazing i really cant wait until tomorrow when the new update unfolds upon us!

Super Astro Twiddlephooey said on January 31, 2015 at 3:27 PM
Awesome! Now all I need to do is click on the map! TYSM! ;D

Lightning Reborn said on January 31, 2015 at 3:30 PM
I thought for sure you would know the answer to the tootsie pop question Lil' Oldman! But this is toontastic!

Ice Spark said on January 31, 2015 at 3:43 PM
Wow Lil Oldman, you don't even know your own saying!

Carissa said on January 31, 2015 at 4:20 PM
YESSS the height adjustment update is awesome!! Thank you!!

Lady Lemondoodle said on January 31, 2015 at 4:35 PM
AWESOME!!! Yes, TOONTASTIC! And for the record LOM, You are not nearly as bad as the task with pajamas!!!

Hocus Pocus said on January 31, 2015 at 5:27 PM
Fantastic! I had always hoped for building indicators on the street map. Thank you so much for adding this feature! You are doing an amazing job bringing this game up to date!

Master Fireball MegaMonkey said on January 31, 2015 at 6:20 PM
Thanks a lot for this update. I remember just 2 days ago thinking that this change should be put into the map and walla here it is!!!! Thank you for reading my thoughts

Senior Mc Noodle Can said on January 31, 2015 at 7:06 PM
I really appreciate this new update! Keep it up!

Grace said on January 31, 2015 at 7:13 PM
That cog height thing will end up being VERY useful. I normally have to end up guessing which cog is the highest when their levels are off-screen, most of the time I end up being wrong. Thank you for that! And I kind of wanted to know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, but the world may really never know.

Pepperbubble said on January 31, 2015 at 7:16 PM
AWESOME! If this stuff had been in the original toontown.........darn right it'd be less epic

Chunky said on January 31, 2015 at 8:01 PM
Thank you so much TTR, This will make everything SO much easier! I am extremely excited for the next update!! :)

Lily the red mouse said on January 31, 2015 at 8:04 PM
Oh my gosh, the thing about cog bldgs showing on the street map was my recommendation! I'm so happy! Thanks for listening guys :)

Snorkelboots said on January 31, 2015 at 8:51 PM
Awesome! I've always been frustrated about how you can't see the cog levels while picking a gag. Also, I was going to post a suggestion about the cog buildings being shown on street maps a few weeks ago, with a picture, but I didn't have enough credit on the Toontown reddit! Glad to see it was added anyway.

Blue said on January 31, 2015 at 9:04 PM
I think that you guys should make an up and down arrow for choosing clothing to switch between shirt and short designs

Rastatony03 said on January 31, 2015 at 9:22 PM
It is cool that you made tweaks to the game to make it better

Peaches said on January 31, 2015 at 9:26 PM
I have been waiting my whole life for this! Thank you so much, Lil Oldman!

Kirito said on January 31, 2015 at 9:31 PM
Toontastic!

Sweet Mystery said on January 31, 2015 at 9:46 PM
Has anyone else noticed that in every one of their posts have had something about Bossbot HQ? In this picture it is showing that all of the buildings on that street are Bossbots. Weird, right? I wonder what this is supposed to mean...

Storm Shadow said on January 31, 2015 at 10:02 PM
Thank you so much. You all are awesome!! Woot!! Toontastic!

COLTONHILTON said on January 31, 2015 at 10:43 PM
I just came across this, and all I can say this is THANK YOU.

candy said on January 31, 2015 at 10:43 PM
This is the second post that shows all of the gag tracks. Will toons be able to have all gag tracks now? Hmmm...

Deputy Bonkers Twiddlegadget said on January 31, 2015 at 10:53 PM
Any one else note 88/95 gags and all gag tracks? Hmm....

Purple Kit said on January 31, 2015 at 11:44 PM
About time Lil' Oldman did something likeable! Even defeating 10 level 8 cogs is a big job for me!

Pitterpatter said on February 1, 2015 at 12:30 AM
Awesome! How wonderful to now see what you are aiming at! lol Thanks! :D

Coconut McQuack said on February 1, 2015 at 12:39 AM
That was my suggestion!! I can't believe it made it in!! O.O

Melody said on February 1, 2015 at 2:04 AM
Just joined! I remember playing this when I was younger! Thanks for your hard work! :)

Prof. Star Wackysprinkles said on February 1, 2015 at 3:14 AM
Lil Oldman is so interesting! In fact, I'm doing one of his tasks right now! But anyway, these 'strategies' are extremely useful! Thanks so much!

Penny Purplehopper said on February 1, 2015 at 3:44 AM
AWESOME

owoooo said on February 1, 2015 at 4:14 AM
Awesome good job

Toonalina said on February 1, 2015 at 4:26 AM
Thanks for telling us, Lil' Oldman! I remember on old toontown I was a duck, a chubby & short one named "Little" and on tall cogs, I could never see the name. ( What are they? pro basketball cogs? ) this brings me to another question: do cogs play basketball on break???

Mischief said on February 1, 2015 at 5:11 AM
This is a great update! Now i won't have too much trouble going all the way down the street to the building for a toontask to find it's a cog building.

Hiss E. Fit said on February 1, 2015 at 5:25 AM
Woah, the strategy here is more than PIKMIN! So cool~.

zezotouba said on February 1, 2015 at 5:30 AM
i am very happy

nice bear said on February 1, 2015 at 5:32 AM

This is awesome?Keep on going!

Noisyrhinocrump said on February 1, 2015 at 5:40 AM
A few days ago I was thinking to myself, how come they dont show cog buildings on the map?!?!? Today I was super surprised! Keep up the good work, anyways!

Pinky said on February 1, 2015 at 5:48 AM
Yay :3

AJ said on February 1, 2015 at 6:08 AM
Brilliant! This will save me valuable time :D

Miss Kit said on February 1, 2015 at 6:20 AM
Yay! Love it about the grey buildings! :)

Lady Marigold Lemonmuffin said on February 1, 2015 at 6:29 AM
Cool! I can't wait to get to my final gag track now! And to you, TTR staff, Thanks for reviving Toontown. Everyone appreciates your hard effort! YOU are Toon enough. YOU are toontastic!

Green said on February 1, 2015 at 6:43 AM
Cool! Toontown Rewritten is better than the old one! Keep up the good work!

Mousy the mouse said on February 1, 2015 at 6:52 AM
Cool! Toontastic keep it up!!!

Puddle Paws said on February 1, 2015 at 7:03 AM
Are they hinting at all seven gag tracks? In his last post, "Not with points, but experience", lil Oldman didn't have drop. Hmmm...

Zekrua said on February 1, 2015 at 7:06 AM
This makes me wonder...

Queen Rainbow Lolipop said on February 1, 2015 at 7:18 AM
Wow... This is amazing I don't know what to say but thanks. Keep adding stuff in!!! :P Good job too!!! :)

Raven said on February 1, 2015 at 7:18 AM
Nice additions! I know they are small but they do make things a lot different. Keep it up because your heading in the right direction.

Dynochomp said on February 1, 2015 at 7:45 AM
Awesome idea with the map showing cog buildings! Keep it up!

Dawnblaze said on February 1, 2015 at 9:24 AM
Wow, I am so thankful! Thanks (even though you told me not to!)! Keep it up, TTRHQ. -Dawnblaze

Dan said on February 1, 2015 at 9:51 AM
With every update comes another step in which the TTR team inches one step closer in rebuilding Toontown and its community. - Dan the Duck

Dsauce said on February 1, 2015 at 10:41 AM
It seems I'm not wrong, these changes do keep getting better and better, I mean how many times have you thought "Dangit! is that cog a lvl 11 or lvl 12!" my only sadness is I am already past the point where that greyed out map point is useful but at least thousands of toons will have an easier time now! Keep up the good work and thank you for listening to our recommendations!

Halloween Toon said on February 1, 2015 at 10:42 AM
I only have to say one thing MAGNIFICENT! With this we wont have to take hours finding buildings we need!

Pinkyyy said on February 1, 2015 at 11:30 AM
WOW! I love it. Nice Work!

Bunny Hop Nibble said on February 1, 2015 at 11:35 AM
PAWESOME! Kool job, this will really help with tasks XD

Scooter said on February 1, 2015 at 5:15 PM
Thank you, Lil Oldman. I've been having lots of trouble trying to see the levels of each cog during a battle. I've also been having trouble trying to find the correct cog building too. This is a great feature. Also, It's funny you made a reference to the Tootsie Pop commercial I was not expecting that to be honest.

Winter Snow Ghost said on February 1, 2015 at 5:38 PM
Thank you so much for the tweaks, and this will help immensely when battling with the Bosses. Little things like this help and not have us to guess what cog is what level. Keep smiling, because you have created a grizzly workload with these toontastic updates and tweaks, which inevitably create some type of lag or unforeseen retweaking. I know this is on your list of to do things, but if you can find time in your busy schedules, please check into the gardening issue. Sure would like to finally have my garden to bloom and trees provide gags. All-in-all, I am so glad we have the opportunity to play this game and I give you a Beartastic Thank You!

Josh The Toon said on February 1, 2015 at 7:01 PM
Awesome!

Mac said on February 2, 2015 at 9:12 AM
I'm really, really, REALLY EXCITED!!! It will be MUCH easier to know if a building I have to go to is a cog building! Thanks Lil' Old Man!

Miss Clover Feathercorn said on February 2, 2015 at 9:17 AM
These are fantastic! I am seriously impressed.

Ginger Weaselzapper said on February 2, 2015 at 10:32 AM
I take back all the unkind things I've said about you Lil Oldman. You're tasks are hard, true, but the improvements help. Now, if I can just get back all those hours of walking uphill, both way, in the snow, chasing cogs so I could finish my tasks... ah, the good old days...

Shurlock Gmomes said on February 2, 2015 at 3:04 PM
Actually the answer to the tootsie pop is 651 on one side and 800 on the other. Just sayin' ^.^

Pumpkin Spice Latte said on February 2, 2015 at 5:54 PM
oh my goodness thank you for this update.. extremely helpful (:

Little quacker said on February 2, 2015 at 6:07 PM
you are awesome!!! I love the imrpovements - EVERY ONE of them. You and your team are brilliant. Thanks

King Picklepop said on February 2, 2015 at 6:16 PM
I LOVE the new update! It is absolutely toontastic! Thank you so much Lil' Oldman :D!!!

Trixie said on February 2, 2015 at 6:29 PM
Yall are doing a great job! I hope all of u have a good time on ttr with da new tweaks this is like fabulous tysm TTR!!!!!

Vibrant Splash said on February 2, 2015 at 7:04 PM
Don't worry Lil old man! Even though your tasks are hard, (I do get it toons i had to do the same task) you're pushing us to do harder things! But a better toon equals less cogs, and less cogs equal more peace, and more peace equals DOODLES and other pets! Still toontastic!

Cool Domino Fuzzyfoot said on February 3, 2015 at 3:11 AM
I remember those day oldman, but I am happy for the new technology we have. I just hope you guys can find a wild group of doodles.

Duke Jeepercrash said on February 3, 2015 at 2:32 PM
Cool!

Rosie said on February 4, 2015 at 7:57 AM
Who ACTUALLY knows how many licks it take to get to a Tootsie Pop? I stopped guessing years ago.

Flip said on February 4, 2015 at 1:19 PM
Maybe the maximum gag experience per building should double to 400 during an invasion.

Nyan Cat said on February 6, 2015 at 4:27 AM
Yay! You don't know how many times I wasted my gags on what I thought were level 5s when they were level 1s! I'm so glad you fixed it :3
