Information About The Silly Meter Update

Posted by The Toontown Team on March 5, 2019 at 9:00 AM

You've watched the videos, read the blog posts, solved the puzzles, and bought a hype train ticket to each and every station. We've been right there with you every step of the way, but today we are more excited than ever for one big reason: We will be releasing The Silly Meter Update tomorrow, March 6th!

A group of signs outside of Toon Hall are all pointing to the Silly Meter.

Normally, we'd keep you on your toes until the update starts going out, but there's a few things we want to tell you about ahead of time for this update. The Silly Meter Update is the single largest expansion we've created to date, and while we've taken great care to prepare such a monumental release, we know that it won't be perfect right away!

The following information will give you a few details about what to expect from this update, and how you can help us make it as great as it can be!

Balancing Updates

To say that the Silly Meter Update is releasing tomorrow... Is only partially true. The real truth is: The update was released weeks ago!

Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed several maintenance periods with seemingly no visible updates. In fact, these maintenance periods were to add and adjust an invisible version of the Silly Meter so that we could test and balance it with thousands of players, rather than just the small handful that we have on our Quality Assurance Team.

While we've done our best to get the Silly Meter balancing just right so that the meter doesn't fill up too quickly, nor too slowly -- we know that we're going to need to make some tweaks as you all begin to play and explore its full potential. Be sure to expect additional balancing updates throughout the first few days. Our ears will be wide open to hear your feedback!

Reporting Bugs

What's a Toontown update without a few bugs to squash? The Silly Meter Update has been going through rigorous testing for weeks thanks to our QA Team, but due to us being a volunteer team with limited resources, it's impossible for us to cover every inch of an update like this which impacts every little part of Toontown.

We hope that there won't be too many issues, but we ask you to please bear with us throughout any bugs you find! In order to help us get the release in tip-top shape, be sure to report them to us so that we can squash the bugs as quickly as possible. We've done everything we can to test this release with our own resources, now we need your help to report anything we missed!

The First Cycle

There's no doubt that you've seen some of what Doctor Fissionton and Doctor Surlee have been up to recently! Throughout the first "Silly Cycle" (Our term for a full run of the Silly Meter, from start to finish), you may see some special in-game events occur in Toontown while the Silly Meter rises to peak silliness.

What does this mean? Well, you may experience a bit of extra wackiness related to the story which won't be there for future play-throughs! Keep in mind that this first Silly Cycle is going to be a bit different than the ones that will happen after the event is over. The first maxing of the Silly Meter deserves a grand celebration, after all!


Send Your Feedback!

Following the release of the Silly Meter, we're going to be working around the clock to monitor the update to handle all problems and feedback that we receive. YOU are essential to helping us make this update successful!

If you have questions, bug reports, suggestions, or anything else you want to convey to us: Send an email to [email protected]! We'll also be monitoring our social media pages, reading community websites, and talking to you in game to make sure everyone is heard.

Our goal with the Silly Meter Update has been to produce an expansion that is fun, long-lasting, and higher quality than any update Toontown has received. We can't predict the unforeseen problems that may pop up after release, but we are not going to stop working until we're fully satisfied that those goals have been met. We are Toontown players just like you, after all, and we are super excited to play our creation alongside you!



Phew! That wraps up all of the information we needed to get off of our chests. Tomorrow, we'll have a full blog post from Doctor Surlee telling you all about the features of the Silly Meter to coincide with its release. Stay silly, Toontown fans. We'll see you tomorrow!

Grand ol' Chipper Pumpkinblabber said on March 5, 2019 at 8:14 PM
well isn't this some pleasant news and hopefully no crazy stuff involving the silly meter happens around noon, like I'll be held up in dogwarts for some magic lessons and I'll miss it, but if it happens around evening hours like 3 or 6 pm then that's good for me. :)

Dragomir said on March 5, 2019 at 8:14 PM
So excited. I am having a hard time containing myself. Let the silliness ramp all the way up. I am certain the cigs are shaking in their boots. Just like they should be.
