Daily Alpha Update: Country Construction

Posted by Sir Max on November 24, 2013 at 2:00 PM

It's been a whole month since Toontown Rewritten went into Alpha. Can you believe that? We're breezing right along through development, and despite these daily updates being hard to put out sometimes, it has definitely kept our motivation high.

Anyway, let's get to this update.



When building Goofy Speedway, we were confined to a pretty small area. Sadly we could only fit two Speedway Tracks within our property, so we had to find some other places to build a track. The first solution: Public Property!

Just a few miles out of the Speedway there are these lush, green hills. It's a pretty nice sight. Perfect place for a racetrack. We got to work immediately, however it turns out the public property wasn't exactly, well, "public". Shockley and the other guys came pounding on our door ordering us to stop. Apparently there is this big housing construction going on there, Estates or something of the sort. Why are they even constructing houses now, anyway? Wouldn't it have been a good idea to give the citizens of Toontown a place to live before inviting them to live here? And they wonder why we only have 100 citizens...

So do you think we stopped there? Really, have I ever stopped there? Of course not! We calmly let him know that we would pack up our equipment and move to a different hill. Once they had all went home, we snuck back out and finished the entire raceway overnight!

Don't worry if you get one of the houses next to the raceway- You'll only hear cars speeding by every 10-15 minutes. We also left you a gift basket and a free bike horn. In fact, you should be the ones thanking us for giving you easy access to the raceway. I'll even do you a favor and take the gift basket and bike horn back as a way to thank myself for the work we did for you. You're welcome!

November 24, 2013 [ttr-alpha-g1525a9c]

Maintenance:
? Minor code cleanup on Toon T.A.G.S.
? More code cleanup for racing.
? Tightened up administrive features to disallow selecting NPCs. I'm looking at you, Goshi!

Bugfixes:
? Anvils will now hit the person in first place rather than last place. Turns out that the blimp pilots had the instructions upsidedown.
? Races now give the correct amount of tickets.
? Fix a crash if someone logs out while on a racing pad.
? Speedups no longer mess up the camera FOV on widescreen.

Features:
? Major visual improvements to Toon T.A.G.S.
? Rural Raceways are now open! Just watch out for those construction workers.

Everyday I look forward to getting a laugh out of these stories. One day I'm going to go through all of them and read it like they're chapters in a giant book. :)

Tas said on November 24, 2013 at 2:11 PM
Ah, the sweet sound of screeching cars, unexpected anvils, and bike horns.

Princess Candy Glitterscooter said on November 24, 2013 at 2:11 PM
I love this! Toontown Rewritten is by far going to be WAY better than Toontown! :D

Popcorn Megazapper said on November 24, 2013 at 2:12 PM
This update has really got me excited! I cannot wait until I can get into beta!

Princess Penny Nickelbottom said on November 24, 2013 at 2:13 PM
Wait.... Does this mean they've opened up a new racetrack and starting construction on the estates???

Good ol' Jake Pumpkinbumper said on November 24, 2013 at 2:18 PM
Keep up the good work, can't wait for the cogs to come out. Then, the excitement begins.

Colonal Oscar said on November 24, 2013 at 2:20 PM
I'm very happy with this update! I bet you can get beta out by Monday or maybe within next week! Keep it up!

Trevor said on November 24, 2013 at 2:29 PM
What if someone crashed out of the race way into someones house? Anyways, good job! its only been a month and Toontowns almost looking like its self again. :D

Luanater said on November 24, 2013 at 2:39 PM
Yay foreshadowing for next Saturday's estate update! :p

Colonel Bonzo said on November 24, 2013 at 2:44 PM
Do I detect a spoiler in this story? Well great job, these stories are always so colorful.

RadderCat said on November 24, 2013 at 2:55 PM
Guys, did you realize that the two gears and the clock, in the name ToonTown Rewritten, look like a Mickey Head? (A little off, but still there)

leftout john said on November 24, 2013 at 3:05 PM
I hope this continues to being 1/1000 divided by 5 times 4, carry the one (random whisper noises) + 2, game comes out at the end

Shadow Paws said on November 24, 2013 at 3:34 PM
I can't wait! For chrismas, all i want is this game! I am super happy! These storys make me laugh so hard. Everyday i get on here to see these storys. Lets make Toontown Rewritten happen guys! Toons of the world unite!

Huigberts said on November 24, 2013 at 3:35 PM
I really wants to know if the Disney characters come into the game, walking and saying things like in the old toontown and maybe some new things (and better things then: do you know how to....) to say, I really want them to see in the game, because they are so cool. So please, please, please put them in the game (if they aren't already in the game). And sorry if this isn't possible for copyright reasons.

Melody said on November 24, 2013 at 3:49 PM
Cant wait for more tracks! Also cant wait for Estates!

Bob Leone said on November 24, 2013 at 3:51 PM
Man, You guy's are really developing this game fast. Keep Going, i can't wait to play!

Deputy WildBubble said on November 24, 2013 at 4:08 PM
Well, even though I'm not a alpha tester it feels like I have been playing the game for a month now also. This game is coming to life and I cant wait re-live my child hood again. Ty guys. :3

Barker said on November 24, 2013 at 4:14 PM
Now you gave me an idea with the whole estates thing. All estate properties start out in a Toontown Central-like area (like the original). Once a toon advances playgrounds though, he can buy estates that resemble other playgrounds. A Donald Dock estate might have palm trees and a house boat, while a Brrgh estate would have igloos, and the ability to buy/ build snowmen. Love what you guys are doing, and really hope you release it soon!

Jabbergadget said on November 24, 2013 at 4:16 PM
a lot of people are saying that Disney will make no attempt to stop TTR, and i'm hoping they're right.

Master Comet Dynotoon said on November 24, 2013 at 4:21 PM
Wow! Awesome update! Thank you for putting all these updates up for us. It's allows for us to still be a part of this game! Look forward to future updates and definitely can't wait to play it when it goes PUBLIC!! Keep up the GREAT WORK!!!

Alyna said on November 24, 2013 at 4:22 PM
I remember about 28 updates ago when alpha came out. You guys have gotten so far! Can't wait till beta :p

Snow Flake said on November 24, 2013 at 4:28 PM
That other update yesterday was really funny, although I didn't post a comment that day. When I checked it, Sir Max could have been smarter and could have parked his car before swapping the butterfly away.

Jesse Pinkman said on November 24, 2013 at 4:35 PM
Anyone notice the old houses in the background? Maybe they will allow those types of houses to be used by the people who want it, just a thought, though.

Chester Mcflipper said on November 24, 2013 at 5:24 PM
I'm amazed at the progress made. I am very excited and I can't wait until the game is released. Thank you TTR staff for bringing Toontown back to us.

Cool Violet Fuzzyfink said on November 24, 2013 at 5:27 PM
I'm pumped for the new release! Can't wait to destroy the cogs once again! :)

Blue said on November 24, 2013 at 6:04 PM
CAN'T WAIT for it to be out! i started playing when it first came out, and i miss it so much!!! If only i knew about this when you were giving out the keys! T<>T

Flabber jabber said on November 24, 2013 at 6:14 PM
Can't wait for beta! It's funny it opened on my sisters birthday and it closed on mine

Noisy Yellow Duck said on November 24, 2013 at 6:24 PM
Amazing process so far, TTR team! Keep it up! I can't wait to play the beta!!

J.C Fumble Flapper said on November 24, 2013 at 6:42 PM
I wonder if people will look back to these daily updates and read them for the story and the humor.

Movie Star Chihuahua said on November 24, 2013 at 7:53 PM
This seems interesting and I hope this is going to be as good as you are making Toontown Rewritten sound. I hope this will take my mind off of Toontown being closed.

Superspeedy Fireball said on November 24, 2013 at 8:02 PM
Only one more set of race tracks to go! Hopefully, it won't be a track set in a place like a city where Toons won't have to evacuate the area because of rampaging racecars destroying all the buildings. "Foreshadowing!" Also, I noticed something just a few days ago: Do you know how you have to rewrite your Toon's progress to play Toontown Rewritten? That's probably why it's called "Toontown Rewritten"!

Spectre said on November 24, 2013 at 8:44 PM
Keep up the good work! --Spectre

bhjyug said on November 24, 2013 at 9:05 PM
great! ttr should be out in no time!

Griffles said on November 24, 2013 at 9:51 PM
I get that these are hard, and I appreciate every last one of them, thank you. Keep up the good work, lads, we love ya!

Cuddles McFlipper said on November 24, 2013 at 10:02 PM
They said that the major 'hurdles' they needed to tackle were racing and estates! Omigosh! This is super cool! I can't wait! Keep up the good work!

Tubby said on November 24, 2013 at 10:07 PM
WOW! good job on this

Tyman said on November 24, 2013 at 10:22 PM
While I was racing, I crashed into what seemed to be a toon's house. I have never seen anything like it! I wonder if there's anymore somewhere else.

King Tom Crunchypretzel said on November 25, 2013 at 3:52 AM
Estates, maybe hinting at Saturday?

Gabbygirl said on November 25, 2013 at 5:10 AM
I'm literally jumping out of my skin for toontown rewritten. Toontown was my childhood game when I was little.

colonel coconut said on November 25, 2013 at 11:41 AM
Colonel Coco here again, I love the progress so far! I hope disney doesnt crush our dreams of playing toontown again! I dont think they will since they havent done much with the real Toontown besides let it slowly die and still get money out of it, like an old cow that produces sour milk

Rainbow Berry said on November 25, 2013 at 11:54 AM
I am super excited! I cant wait to see my friends, and remake my toon's story in TTR! You have no idea how grateful I am. ~Rainbow Berry

Prof. Max Twiddlejinks (this was my name on toontown.) said on November 25, 2013 at 7:08 PM
Omg I just found this website tonight!!! I used to LOVE toontown. I played on it for 6 years! Iam sooooooooooo glad the toons of toontown teamed up to make the toontown rewritten!!! I LOVE TOONTOWN!!!!!

Coco said on November 25, 2013 at 7:13 PM
I'm so ready for this to be released! :) Keep up the good work.

el gato said on November 26, 2013 at 6:32 AM

roger dog said on November 26, 2013 at 9:11 AM

Princess Melody said on November 26, 2013 at 9:16 AM
Can't wait:)))))))) Ahhhh I had a dream about this game last night. I really miss it! Y'all are doing a great job, keep it up!

galaxy said on November 26, 2013 at 12:59 PM

Limelives said on November 26, 2013 at 1:51 PM

Princess Lily said on November 29, 2013 at 8:50 AM
