Ask Toontown: Sir Max
Posted by Sir Max on August 12, 2016 at 6:00 PM
Welcome to Ask Toontown, a brand new segment for our blog where YOU get to decide the content! We've asked our followers over on Twitter to send in questions for our first guest, the one and only Sir Max, who has chosen a bunch to answer.
A Word From Sir Max
HEY THERE, Toontown! I knew I'd finally get my chance for the spotlight.
As manager of the Toontown blog, it was of course my own idea to start up a "Ask Toontown" segment to try and better keep in touch with the Toons of the town, as some of you have asked us to do. I proposed it to the Toon Council, and suddenly I get the bright idea: "Who's a better first guest than myself?" -- so I sent a letter to my agent to see if I was available and the rest is history.
Let's check out some questions, shall we?
Questions and Answers
#AskToontown Sir Max, why are you called Sir Max, if your owner's name is Joey? and why a green dog? o:— Corgi Kitten (@GirlinACatSuit) August 12, 2016
Where did the name Sir Max come from #AskToontown— JakeToontown (@JakeToontown) August 12, 2016
Now that's an easy one. My first name is Sir, and my last name is Max. Or was it the other way around? There might even be a "Douglas" thrown in there.
You know, I kind of like the sound of that. "Sir Douglas Max."
Doodles. One day! In terms of content already released, I'd say ToonFest. It was a tough thing to finish in under a month.
The when they are ready, of course!
Note from the TTR Team: Doodles are tough, because we need to figure out how to implement them without bogging down the rest of the game. No one wants more lag! At the same time, it's tough to work on that implementation while trying to keep you guys entertained with other content.
Fixing bugs? That's something I do plenty of as a Toon Trooper. The grey zone glitches, animation bugs, and many a game crash were the result of my handiwork on fixing bugs. Butterflies, though? I won't get anywhere near those things. Don't get me started on butterflies.
Parties used to be here in Toontown after Fat McStink introduced them during alpha, but due to a number of safety code violations which resulted in some crashes (Heh, get it, because -- ah nevermind.) they were temporarily removed.
Recently, our pal Hawkheart has been rebuilding them with much better purpose in mind, and there's only two major steps left to complete them. They won't be releasing with new activities, but they will be releasing fairly soon with full stability. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some new activities in the future, too!
The butler did it -- at least that's what they want you to think. The real plot twist is that it was YOU all along! I'm onto you, Boredmations. Don't think for a second that you're getting away with this.
Three words, eh? -- NO wait, that doesn't count. Let's try this again:
Lettuce. Tomato. Onion. -- OOF, no, sorry -- Big. Pink. Cookie. -- Now I'm just spouting off my dinner order. What was it...? -- Parties, Tweaks, ToonFest. -- No no, that can't be it. I give up.
Like a million bucks! Not all of our bucks are male, though, so probably more like half of a million bucks. And none of our Toon species are deer, so I'd say we have exactly zero bucks. What were we talking about again?
Riggy Marole is back, and he's bringing some friends with him to join his ToonFest team alongside the Token Takers. Ever year we've built upon ToonFest to add more things to do, and this one is going to be the most fun yet. In fact, that's what I'm currently working on with the other Toon Troopers.
We have ToonFest every year so that we can add small little additions to keep you occupied while we work on the big stuff. So even if we added absolutely nothing to Toontown for an entire year -- you can still count on there being something new at ToonFest to keep you entertained.
#AskToontown where is WASD support? People with Mech keyboards like the Pok3r or HHKB will have trouble playing without it .-.— RealToonGaming (@RealToonGaming) August 12, 2016
That's a feature that I was working on pretty recently. I want it as much as you do - look for it in the near future of tweaks.
Don't scare me like that. You know I don't do well under pressure. Anyway, the answer is green apple. The question was about smarties, right? Or was it Marty's...
Was Slappy's capture an inside job? #AskToontown— zttr (@zttr420) August 12, 2016
I believe that Slappy was captured outside.
These questions were asked outside of the time allotment, but hey, I'm a rulebreaker too. Let's answer some!
It's coming soon. Fat McStink, the fellow who manages Mac, has been busy with some sort of... Intermediate-ship? Something like that. I'm not quite sure what it is, but I think it's because he's short. As long as that yellow bar is at the top of our website, though, it's a priority for fixing.
If you email the designs to us and give us permission to use them in-game, you may end up seeing them -- or even a recreation by one of our own artists. We also encourage you to apply to be an artist for the team!
How big is toontown exactly? #asktoontown— Deputy Gulliver (@deputygulliver) August 12, 2016
This big. I'm showing how big the town is right now, but you can't see because this is just text on a screen. You'll have to trust me on this one.
Often times it will take months of hard work from multiple programmers, artists, and play testers. It's no easy task!
#AskToontown why was i late— an tomato (@KetchupToontown) August 12, 2016
Probably because you weren't following us on Twitter, or didn't have tweet notifications enabled to hear whenever something is going on in Toontown. Our social media pages deliver exclusive content and opportunities like the questions here, so I recommend checking all of them out!
Now that I'm done with the shameless plug, I think that wraps up this edition of Ask Toontown.
Feel free to keep asking me questions via email or social media and I'll try my best to answer them, and let us know in the comments which Toon you want to answer questions next!
